"Oh, don't play dodo bird with me, Fitz. I remember a number of occasions while we were sailing with nothing much else going on, and you were playing around with birds, talking to them all daintily, like you were some princess in a fairy tale."
Jack Sparrow to Fitzwilliam P. Dalton III[src]

Fairy tales were stories that typically featured folkloric characters, such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, dwarves, giants, witchcraft, mermaids, or gnomes, and usually magic or enchantments. Fairy tales may be distinguished from other folk narratives such as legends (which generally involve belief in the veracity of the events described) and explicitly moral tales, including beast fables.


"If there be one thing you haven't quite grasped about the illustrious Hector Barbossa, it be...I don't believe in fairy tales."
Hector Barbossa[src]

According to legend, any man who possessed the Deep Sea Opal will earn great fortune, power, and fame. However, only to those who received the opal as a gift would benefit from the opal's power; the one who steals the opal would be cursed forever. Sao Feng once explained that he doesn't believe in the curse, as he is "not the kind of man who is afraid of hobgoblins and fairy tales", and that he didn't entirely believe there was any power in the opal beyond its value as a previous gem.[1]

A mermaid's tear may sound like one of the romantic ingredients of a quaint fairy tale, but in fact, no prize could be harder to win. As proud and ferocious as the sea they live in, mermaids do not weep lightly. Only a mermaid's tear, placed in one of the Chalices, will set the Fountain of Youth's rejuvenating forces to work.[2]
