Unofficial Name

"That's the cursed isle known as the Forsaken Fortress. There are all sorts of strange rumors about this place. Long ago, it used to be the hideout of a no-good group of pirates we used to compete with... But they were just small-time."

The Pirates of Forsaken Fortress are a group of pirates mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

In the past they were the enemies/rivals of the Tetra's Pirates and originally inhabited the Forsaken Fortress before it was taken over by Ganondorf. During the events of The Wind Waker, it is implied that this crew no longer exists and what became of them is a mystery.

Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.

It is possible that the Pirates of Forsaken Fortress where Blin pirates (Bokoblins, Moblins, Miniblins, and Big Blins). Miniblins and Big Blins are shown to engage in piracy in Spirit Tracks. One possibility is that the Blin Pirates of Forsaken Fortress where annexed into Ganondorf's forces when he took over the Forsaken Fortress. This may explain the presence of Submarines, and Lookout Platforms which are often manned by Bokoblins, Miniblins, and Moblins on the Great Sea, which may be a part of the Pirates of Forsaken Fortress that became part of Ganondorf's forces or indication that they continue to engage in piracy.
