The Pirates are the secondary antagonists in the 2012 animated film Ice Age: Continental
- It is hinted that Captain Gutt first came to this idea after his kind was going extinct and he also need allies for survival.
- They all were going extinct and doomed to die in this changing world, except Flynn the Elephant Seal and Slias the Blue-Footed Booby. Each found across the world by Captain Gutt and serve him as his friends.
- Shira, Silas and Gupta are the only meat eaters of the pirates.
- Shira is the second character to betray a group and leader, Diego is the first with the Soto and the Sabertooth Tiger pack.
- Shira may be the only one in the group who is still alive. Flynn is also most likely still alive (since he's a sea creature and enjoyed Precious' sprays.)
