The Pirates are the antagonists of the 2012 animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift. Their leader is Captain Gutt, the main antagonist of the film, and they plunder incoming ice caps for new parts for their ship and raiding all food supplies from other animals, ruling the seas without no-one stopping them. Until, they encounter the Sub-Zero Heroes (Manny, Diego and Sid).
- Captain Gutt
- Shira (formerly)
- Narwhals (who work for Gutt and are presumably his "pets")
- 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 and Squint may be the only ones in the group who are still alive. Flynn is also most likely still alive (since he is a sea creature). Silas, too, could have survived, considering his ability to have flown away (being a bird) if things had gotten too tough for him.
