The Crew of the Black Pearl are a group of pirates serving onboard the Black Pearl in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The Pearl had many crews over the course of the film series, either captained by Jack Sparrow or Hector Barbossa (until Barbossa's death in Dead Men Tell No Tales) since the Age of Piracy since there were two Pearl captains at this era.
Throughout the adventures, the crew went on a dangerous adventure in seeking the Treasure of Cortés and the Dead Man's Chest throughout the Age of Piracy during the events of The Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest. During the War Against Piracy, the crew seeked the Brethren Court to stop Cutler Beckett from eradicating piracy under forces of the East India Trading Company within the events of At World's End. During the events of On Stranger Tides, the crew was disbanded due to the infamous pirate Blackbeard taking control of the ship by capturing it, but the crew was later formed when the crew of the Queen Anne's Revenge and the crew of the Dying Gull joined forces to fight against Captain Salazar and his undead crew during the events of Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Notable crew members
- Main article: Cursed Crew of the Black Pearl
The first crew of the Black Pearl was originally captained by Jack Sparrow. A decade prior to The Curse of the Black Pearl, Barbossa led a mutiny and marooned Sparrow. Soon after, Barbossa and the crew became cursed after stealing coins from an ancient Aztec chest. They became immortal, but the curse rendered them unable to feel, taste, or satisfy their desires. The lunar light exposed them as skeletal beings. Later, the curse was broken, and the ship once again fell under Jack's command. At the end of the third film, At World's End, the Pearl briefly returns to Barbossa's hands before losing it and his leg prior to the events of On Stranger Tides.Crew members who appear in The Curse of the Black Pearl include Bo'sun (played by Isaac C. Singleton Jr., a large African man that acts as Barbossa's second in command), Clubba (played by David Patykewich, a large bald man with facial tattoos and a large earring), Grapple (played by Trevor Goddard, a sailor who fights with a large grappling iron), Jacoby (played by Vince Lozano, a man with a long black beard and uses hand grenades), Koehler (played by Treva Etienne, a slender African man with dreadlocks), Mallot (played by Brye Cooper, who wields a large mallet), Scratch (played by Finneus Egan, sporting blond dreadlocks who wields a dagger), and Twigg (played by Michael Berry Jr., an Irish sailor who is often paired with Koehler). In the film, five of them (Clubba, Grapple, Jacoby, Mallot, and Scratch) are knocked apart by either explosion or impact and died instantly when the curse was lifted. Koehler is also killed in the final battle by James Norrington, revealing to the pirates that they are mortal once again; it is unknown what happened to Bo'sun, Twigg, and the rest of the crew, although it is likely they were arrested by the British and executed. Bo'sun, Twigg, and Jacoby appear in Kingdom Hearts II as cursed pirates. They are voiced by Beau Billingslea, Adam Leadbeater, and John DiMaggio respectively.

Marty, played by Martin Klebba, is a dwarf pirate hired by Jack Sparrow and Joshamee Gibbs to search for the Black Pearl in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Originally serving aboard the Interceptor, Marty has only one line of dialogue in the first film, but he becomes more prominent in the second and third films, Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, as one of the main crew members of the Black Pearl. In Dead Man's Chest, Marty noticed Jack was acting "a bit strange...er" and participated in the search for the Dead Man's Chest. Marty was one of the few survivors the Kraken's attack, which ended with the Black Pearl being dragged to the depths along with Jack Sparrow. In At World's End, Marty agreed to travel to World's End to bring Jack back from Davy Jones' Locker. In At World's End, Marty provided comic relief such as being blown off his feet after firing a blunderbuss in Singapore. He later fired his guns at Davy Jones' crew during the maelstrom battle. Throughout the film, Marty followed both Jack Sparrow and the resurrected Hector Barbossa, who both wanted to be captain of the Black Pearl, but Marty ends up joining Barbossa in stealing the Pearl.In Dead Men Tell No Tales, Marty is shown to have survived the Blackbeard attack in On Stranger Tides. In the end, Marty joins Jack again on board the Black Pearl who has regained its normal size.
