Skylanders: Gill Grunt and the Curse of the Fish Master
Pirates are a group of antagonistic creatures in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. They range far and wide across the seas of Skylands. The most villainous and scurviest of all pirates is Captain Dreadbeard.
The Pirates played a role in kidnapping the mermaid girlfriend of the Skylander, Gill Grunt, who eventually rescued his girlfriend from the rogues.
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
Pirates inhabit a coastal bay called Dark Water Cove, where they had held the Twin Spouts of Ocea-Major Minor, until the Skylander breached through the cove and retrieved it. Upon hearing about the statues in the Leviathan Lagoon, the Pirates landed in the islands to find them, but were thwarted by the Skylander.
In Pirate Seas, Captain Dreadbeard and his gang of pirates laid seige on Plunder Island, taking the residents captive after forcing them to play their card games and succeeded in stealing the town's treasure. However, they were thrawted by the Skylander.
In Skylanders: Giants, the Pirates, under the command of Captain Dreadbeard, had taken over a carnival and named it Cutthroat Carnival. They like playing the game of Skystones, which is a game for pirates who abandoned the classic life of pirate life.
The Pirates on Plunder Island play card games as it is more of a traditional game, and the pirates fancy themselves as "old-schoolers".
Other Pirates look down on the more modern breed of pirates who play Skystones and buy carnivals and have forgotten the classic of pirate life: pillaging, hornswoggling, scallywaggery, and of course, Pirate Cards.
