An arena packed with beauty queens... I'm scared to go in there.
The Pirates (also called The Sharks) are characters that appear in World of Winx.
Their full history is unknown. Once pirates, they were corrupted by Tinkerbell and changed into her undead minions.
In their human form, their features vary but they all have a muscular build with tanned skin. They wear jeans and black vests with a symbol of a shark on the chest.
Each one has different tattoos that brings correlation with the sea. Some of those tattoos are shark teeth, an octopus, a anchor and others.
As zombies, they retain most of their features but their skin color are now cold and grey, their clothes are ripped and their faces are twisted and ghastly. White bandages coat their bodies and long rope tentacles sprout from their backs. Each rope ends with a hook.
World of Winx
They debuted in "Dangerous Waters". Ordered by Smee, Ace hired the Sharks to compete with the Winx for an extreme test. After the WOW cameras were destroyed by the water, they transformed into their zombies to accomplish the Queen's order of eliminating the Winx.
The Zombie Pirates can assume a human form but they return to their undead form when either Smee or Tinkerbell commands them. They can transform willingly but they must all be together to transform. As zombies, they are stronger, tougher and more agile. They can wield their ropes like cephalopod limbs and use them to ensnare their enemies while the hooks are used to harm. Their zombie presence can influence the sea, summon storm clouds and cause rough waters but they cannot control it like Aisha.
- Their appearance might be based on the Ghost Pirates of Pirates of the Caribbean.
- Their human shadow and Smee's shadow appear briefly in the episode "Shattered Dreams" when the Queen called her for her "warriors".
