Admirable Standards/Goodness Zone

To begin I am going to show you what are the qualities of Will in the three films, Unlike Jack Sparrow, he is in a damsel and comic relief role, be prepared to have moments when he behaves like a jerk.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl:

  • Will set out to find the ghost ship called the Black Pearl, in order to rescue Elizabeth in Isla de Muerta along with Jack Sparrow, Gibbs and some crew members.
  • Save the life of a woman in distress from a pirate of the Black Pearl by throwing an ax in the back, when the Black Pearl began to attack the town.
  • He supported Gibbs and the crew in fighting and firing the cannons when Barbossa and his crew were chasing them and also rescue Jack Sparrow.
  • He uses his blood and with that of Jack Sparrow to cover two pirate medallions to put it in the chest of Isla de Muerta to defeat Hector Barbossa and his crew (Although Hector would come back to life at the end of the second movie by turning good guy thanks to Tia Dalma).
  • Together with Elizabeth, they used a weapon called a steed and a bomb to be able to hit about 3 ghost pirates and make them explode.
  • Save the life of Jack Sparrow, during his execution at the exact moment before he was bowed.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest:

  • He convinced Jack to give him the compass and to return to Port Royal in order to free Elizabeth from prison with the help of her future father-in-law Weatherbyn (however she managed to escape thanks to one soldier).
  • He rescued Jack Sparrow and his crew from an island where cannibals live.
  • He help Jack pay off his debt in a Davy Jones challenge.
  • Together with his father, they foolish Davy Jones to gets the key of the Dead Man's Chest, when he's played the piano and stay semi-sleep.
  • He promises his father not to rest, until he can free him from Davy Jones and not leave him behind.
  • He helped some pirates to escape from the waters where Davy Jones and his crew were present and also from the Kraken but with no success.
  • He helped Jack, Gibbs, Elizabeth and the crew to use a net that carried barrels full of gunpowder and Ron to be able to finish off the Kraken.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End:

  • He helped Jack and the crew to end Cutler Beckett's reign of terror who planned to take over the ocean.
  • Along with Elizabeth, Hector, and Gibbs, they rescued Jack Sparrow from Davy Jones's locker.
  • He forgive Elizabeth, for leaving Jack and having him delivered by the Kraken.
  • He help Jack solve the puzzle on the map, which was Upsi Down.
  • He supported Elizabeth, Barbossa and the crew in the final showdown against Lord Cutler Beckett and Davy Jones when Calypso was released.
  • He became the new captain of the Flying Dutchman, sacrificing his heart, keeping it in the chest, After the heart of Davy Jones, got stabbed by Jack Sparrow.
  • He gave Elizabeth his heart that was kept in the chest, telling her to keep it safe, which she agreed to take care of, before leaving for the Flying Dutchman.

Corrupting Factors

It may be that Will has a certain corrupt factor, when he met Jack Sparrow for the first time, he told him that he does not make friends with pirates and after a brief sword-handling training, Will throws at Sparrow, the sword he used but without injuring him, when he tried to escape and when he knocks him unconscious with an oar, just because he didn't want to wait too long and also leave it behind with Barbossa and his crew (it was only to do the right thing), and can even use violence when necessary to either kill some ghost pirates, cannibals, pirates cursed by the flying dutchman or someone who crosses his path, in the first film, they stole with Sparrow the ship called Interceptor leaving some soldiers in a boat, During the introduction of the second film he is arrested alongside with Elizabeth and his father by Lord Beckett, for a crime that he did not commit and for freeing Jack Sparrow guilty of crimes of the corana and the empire and conviction, accept Cutler Beckett's deal to take Jack's compass, fight against with Sparrow and Norrington in Sword fight to who's kill Davy Jones, or try to steal the navigation charts from Sao Feng in order to search for Jack Sparrow in the domain of Davy Jones, he also gave Beckett, Jack's compass, but it is not necessarily to disqualify, Will is defensively a good-hearted guy.

Final Veredict

In conclusion, Will is superior to Jack in all these actions and qualities, He is not only the most admirable character in the franchise but also the true main protagonist.
