True to his name, the Dead Pirate is in fact a zombie pirate wielding a long Falchion. He attacks by jumping and then landing while slashing his sword.
While stories of dead buccaneers coming back to life to protect their buried treasures have been told for many generations, perhaps their appearance in the Castlevania series was inspired by various depictions of them in popular culture. Novels like Robinson Crusoe (Daniel Defoe, 1719), The Corsair (Lord Byron, 1814), The Pirate (Sir Walter Scott, 1821), or Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson, 1883), among others, may have been the inspiration for these characters.
The Dead Pirate is one of the most annoying enemies found in Dawn of Sorrow, being that if the player is not careful, he can corner them and deal massive damage. His soul, however, is arguably one of the most useful souls in the game. The Dead Pirate's soul grants the Backstab ability, which allows Soma to deal double damage to enemies if he attacks them from behind.
