A Scientific List Of The Best Pirates of the Caribbean Side Characters

Captain Jack in Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, and At World’s End is the best character in the franchise, and Barbossa in On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales is the best character in those movies. But this list isn’t about them. It’s about the side characters that get caught up in our fun pirate protagonists’ wild adventures.

Fair warning: All these characters are from the first three movies because that’s where all the cool characters — except the mermaid— are found (sorry Penelope Cruz).
