You want to take a swing at the Captain, eh? Why not. I could use a warm-up. Show us some of your magic tricks, genie!
~ The Pirate Master about to fight Shantae.
GARRRGH! Curse that Risky Boots! I will wipe you and EVERY LAST GENIE FROM EXISTENCE!
~ The Pirate Master swearing revenge on Risky and Shantae.

The Pirate Master is the overarching antagonist of the Shantae series, serving as the main antagonist of the 2014 indie game Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. He is an undead pirate captain and Risky Boots' former mentor.


When he was alive, The Pirate Master was a feared captain, and was Risky Boots' former mentor. At some point, he attacked Sequin Land in his attempt to destroy every single genie there, but the genies combined their power to seal The Pirate Master away in a grave on an isolated island.

Following his defeat, Risky Boots inherited his crew, gears, and to rub salt in the wounds, she took his face to turn it into her bustier and belt.

As the light magic from Sequin Land begins to vanish, The Pirate Master begins to unleash curses on surrounding islands, which turns most of the Tinkerbats into Cacklebats, vicious beings with dark magic, and begins to gather dark magic from the dens of evil on the nearby islands.

Knowing the danger, Shantae is forced to work together with her nemesis, Risky Boots to seal the dens of evil. While they were successful at sealing the dens, they were unable to stop the revival of The Pirate Master. The vengeful captain captured his former mate and then fled to the Sequin Land Palace, with Shantae pursuing them.

Shantae fought the undead captain and appeared to have won, but the evil pirate stole back his gear and transforms into a giant, powerful being. With Shantae trying to defeat him and fails, The Pirate Master demands that she either gives him the Dark Magic, or else Risky will die.

Shantae begrudgingly agrees to his deal and release the Dark Magic, but it turns into Light Magic at that moment. Reabsorbing the magic herself, Shantae regains her genie powers and was able to weaken The Master Pirate, which allowed Risky Boots to fire Ammo Baron's cannon on him, destroying the villain for good.



  • The curses that he unleashed along with the Dens of Evil that he gathered dark magic from may have corrupted and bent to his will any entities exposed to it, explaining why many of the game's enemies are extremely hostile to Shantae. This includes the Mermaids on Saliva Island, the Mud Bog Creatures from Mud Bog Island, the Zombies on Spiderweb Island, and Risky's Tinkerbats which were on all of the Islands and were turned into Cacklebats by the dark magic just to note a few examples.
