The Kraken attacking the Edinburgh Trader.

"Let no joyful voice be heard! Let no man look up at the sky with hope! And let this day be cursed by we who ready to wake...the Kraken!"
Davy Jones[src]

Known to many, and feared by many, the Kraken, under the control of Davy Jones, was used by him to ensure that Jack Sparrow settled his debt promptly. However, Lord Beckett disapproved of Jones' leviathan, and ordered for it to be beached on an island, effectively killing it, depriving the Kraken of water.

Keep a weather eye open[]

"Just wait, Captain Sparrow. You give it one hour, maybe two, keep a weather eye open and you will see white sails on that horizon."
Elizabeth Swann to Jack Sparrow[src]

"This useless crew can't even catch-up to a bunch of half-wit pirates. I should keelhaul the lot of them."
Benedict Huntington[src]

Keelhauling is a form of punishment meted out to sailors at sea. The sailor was tied to a line that looped beneath the vessel, thrown overboard on one side of the ship, and dragged under the ship's keel, either from one side of the ship to the other, or the length of the ship (from bow to stern). As the hull was usually covered in barnacles and other marine growth, if the offender was pulled quickly, keelhauling would typically result in serious cuts, loss of limbs and even decapitation. If the victim were dragged slowly, his weight might lower him sufficiently to miss the barnacles, but this method would frequently result in his drowning.
