- "Some weird guys called Piratians have settled down south."
- — Subrosian
The Piratians can be found sailing in their ship about in the Sea of Storms in the past, in a Linked Game they only appear in the Present. They are trapped in the treacherous waters and are only able to leave once Link brings them the Zora Scale, which can dissipate the Whirlpools, allowing them to sail on. In return for Link's aid, they give him the Tokay Eyeball, which is necessary to pass through to the Sea of No Return, the location of the Ancient Tomb.
The Piratians have been stranded in Subrosia and have made their residence in a house in southern Subrosia. Their ship is stuck midways through Subrosia and Holodrum, and they cannot sail on. One half of the ship is on the outskirts of Subrosia Cemetery, while the other half is stuck in Samasa Desert. Link must find and repair Cap'n's bell in the desert before he can convince the captain to move the ship and allow Link to reach the Explorer's Crypt.
