Pirates are a notorious menace in the Item World, appearing in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, and Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten. These roving bands of enemies appear on random floors to attack the player. They are often strong and difficult to defeat, as their levels are higher than normal enemies. To encounter pirates, you need to spend at least one turn on any floor in the Item World. There is a chance that Pirates will show up on turns 2, 3 or even later, but a Turn 1 absence normally means that the Pirates will not appear.

Disgaea 2[edit | edit source]

In Disgaea 2, each pirate leader carries a Treasure Map which can be obtained by defeating the pirate. Collecting all 16 maps unlocks the Land of Carnage. The pirates will only appear within the first 3 turns of each floor. So wait until the 4th turn before advancing to the next floor. You can also increase the chance of pirates appearing by equipping the Treasure Map you get after defeating the pirate leader of each group.

Disgaea 3[edit | edit source]

Pirates in Disgaea 3 will now only appear on floors 21 and higher. Instead of Treasure Maps, they carry Illegal Tickets which are used to unlock a stage in the X-Dimension. You can also buy them by running into a Illegal Ticket vendor in the item world. You can also increase the odds of running into pirates and Illegal Ticket vendors, by filling the PPP Club and Tora no Ana Club. Both clubs are unlocked once you defeat your first set of pirates.

Disgaea 4[edit | edit source]

A new mechanic added to Disgaea 4 is a pathing system for the Item World. Every 5 levels in the Item World, you'll find that 2 gates will appear: Innocent Boost Gate and an Item Growth Gate. Selecting the Item Growth gate will improve the chances of levels spheres and item improving rooms. Selecting the Innocent Boost Gate will improve the chances of events that power-up innocents and as well as higher spawn rate of wild innocents. The middle path is between Innocent Boost Gate and Item Growth Gate is called Treasure Route. Selecting the Treasure Route will improve the chances of treasure appearing. These different routes will affect certain pirates to appear. Some pirates may appear in Reverse Pirates or Land of Carnage.
