"I see our stray serpent is returning…"
Davy Jones[src]

sea serpent was a mythical, snake or dragon like animal that seafaring lore would describe as a giant green monster with yellow eyes that lived in the oceans, and particularly said to appear during violent storms.


The Serpiente de Muerta was a blue sea serpent that was covered with fish-like fins and breathed blue fire, which Jack Sparrow claimed he had encountered on Isla de Muerta

The crew of the Black Pearl had also encountered a giant serpent that was mentioned in the lore of the game Snake Eyes the very next day after they had played the game. The serpent approached the ship and swallowed the pirate Mary Bonny, who later appeared alive on a remote deserted island.[1]

Following their escape from Fort Charles, Pintel and Ragetti encountered a sleeping sea serpent which was floating around for so long it grew trees on its back, making the two pirates mistake it for an island.[2]

One serpent appeared to be part of the Flying Dutchman, and under the command of Captain Davy Jones. It was more free-spirited than the Kraken, sometimes swimming away from the ship on a whim. The sea serpent was sometimes used to capture sailors for Davy Jones' crew. The sea serpent was awakened by Will Turner while he was stowing away on the Flying Dutchman. The sea serpent attempted to retrieve him, but Will managed to turn the tables and gained control of the creature.

During the War Against Piracy, the sea serpents were attacked and killed by pirate alliances because of their bodies resources were obtained for multiple things, many monsters were attacked for the same reasons as the Mermaid, the Cursed Wanderer, Ancient Octopus, Banshee, Spectral Sawfish, Mutated Whale and the Giant Lobster.[3]
