|“||On the clearest of nights, when the winds of the Etherium were calm and peaceful. The great merchant ships with their cargoes of Arcturian solar crystals felt safe and secure. Little did they suspect, that they were pursued by pirates. And the most feared of all these pirates was the notorious Captain Nathaniel Flint.||„|

Role in the film
The Pirates appeared at the very beginning of the film. They were seen on the ship and lived with the notorious Captain Nathaniel Flint, who was their most feared captain of all his pirates. When Flint orders his pirates to fire upon their quarry, they initially open their gun ports for using their cannons to destroy the tremendous Arcturian merchant ship, which will make the people feel afraid after the lights were blown out everywhere. Like a Candarian zaftwing overtaking its prey, Flint and his band of renegades mysteriously swooped in out of nowhere. When two of the pirates start to open Flint's treasure chest, they dump all of the gold and jewels out of his treasure chest, so he can keep his ostentatious treasure safe. When the Arcturian merchant ship has a lot of flames, they burn to their apparent deaths after the pillaging was over, and don't appear again afterwards.
They are also known for being extremely aggressive, barbarous, ruthless, cruel, greedy, furious, cunning, murderous, destructive, temperamental, duplicitious, unpleasant, menacing, violent, and savage. They are extremely confrontational, materialistic, and belligerent for using their weapons to shoot all of the Arcturian Guards, who are on the Arcturian merchant ship.
- They are voiced by Tom Kenny who is known for his best portrayal as Spyro in the classic Spyro the Dragon video game franchise, the Mayor in Powerpuff Girls, and SpongeBob in SpongeBob SquarePants.
- They share similarities with the Neverland Pirates from Disney's 1953 animated fantasy-adventure film, Peter Pan.
- Despite being Flint's minions, they aren't the secondary villains, Scroop is.
