"What the hell, damn guy?!"
—The Pirate King's dying words[src]

The Pirate Captain was the leader of the pirates who rescued Archer and Rip Riley from their life-raft. He only rescued them so he could turn them in for a ransom (or, as the Captain put it, "a BIG BIG MONEEEY!"), but is also quite cheery and polite to them, at least at first: he serves Archer and Rip a hearty dinner (even apologising for the poor quality of the wine), and also happily alleviates the worries Archer raises about the pirates doing "any of that mail-somebody-a-finger shit". The Captain had a heavy accent and was very excitable.

He commanded the Pirate Ship until he was killed by Archer, at which point Archer became the new Captain, declaring himself King.

His appearance resembles that of the waiter at the Chinese restaurant who serves Archer and Katya during the episode Skin Game. Both the Pirate Captain and the waiter are voiced by Ji Li, a long-time illustrator and background artist for the show.

  • His dying words, "What the hell, damn guy?!", are a callback to Frisky Dingo.
