|~ Pintel and Ragetti|
Pintel and Ragetti are recurring pirate characters in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, primarily providing comic relief throughout each film. Pintel is portrayed by Lee Arenberg and Mackenzie Crook portrays Ragetti.
The Curse of the Black Pearl
Their first appearance occurred in The Curse of the Black Pearl, when they served under Hector Barbossa upon the Black Pearl. It is revealed that Pintel and Ragetti are regretful of their mutiny against their captain, Jack Sparrow and their involvement in sending William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner to Davy Jones's Locker. Pintel and Ragetti, along with Barbossa and the crew of the Black Pearl, share in the Aztec curse and are immortal for the majority of the film.
Dead Man's Chest
In the second film, Dead Man's Chest, Pintel and Ragetti serve under Captain Jack Sparrow, again providing comic relief, as well as the occasional important insight into other characters. They join the ever-lengthening list of people who want the Dead Man's Chest, hoping to "remove temptation" from the other characters' path and make a profit themselves.
At World's End
In At World's End, Ragetti and Pintels' roles play a bit more importance to the plot while still supplying comic relief. In this latest installment, they serve under Hector Barbossa in the journey to rescue Jack, and then serving in the joint effort by Barbossa and Sparrow to defeat the East India Trading Company. Ragetti's wooden eye is used by Barbossa as his "Piece of Eight" (one of a group of nine Pieces of Eight used to free Calypso) and his empty eye socket is later covered with an eye patch.
In the video game Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow, Pintel and Ragetti are both voiced by Greg Ellis.
