Devilish figures on the stained glass window of the Queen Anne's Revenge.

"Haul those sheets! Run 'em! Run, keep running! Run as if the devil himself and itself is upon us!"
Jack Sparrow[src]

The Devil is believed in many religions, myths and cultures to be a supernatural entity that is the personification of evil and the enemy of God and humankind.


"Jack, where are ye going?"
"I am going to have a talk with the devil himself.
Arabella Smith and Jack Sparrow[src]

The first pirate flag of the infamous pirate Blackbeard was the black flag with the skeleton of the devil holding a goblet in one hand and a spear pointing to a bleeding heart in the other,[1] a design he later used for his figurehead.[2] The nightmarish vision painted on the stained glass window seen on the stern of the Queen Anne's Revenge depicted dead men writhing in flames, stoked by devilish characters.[3] Davy Jones' hat was shaped to effect devil horns, in effect making him known as the sailor's devil.[4] When the young adventurer Jack Sparrow and the crew of the Barnacle attended the masquerade ball in a hotel in New Orleans, Jean Magliore and Tumen wore matching devilish masks, complete with horns and pointed eyebrows.[5] Around 1729, following Jack Sparrow's death, the Flying Dutchman's First Mate Maccus remarked that even Sparrow couldn't best the Devil, referring to Davy Jones, his captain.[4]
