Pirate Pete is a pirate from Mos Le'Harmless currently in the service of Captain Braindeath. Before the events of A Rum Deal, Braindeath sent Pete to find help in fighting the invasion of Captain Donnie. Players must talk to him to start the quest, and he is located on a dock near the Ectofuntus. He also offers the player transport to Braindeath Island after the quest. When travelling back and forth, players are knocked unconscious every time, which does not deal any damage. Players will then wake up on the island, which does not appear on the RuneScape map.
Pirate Pete is the cousin of Party Pete, Pumpkin Pete, Parroty Pete and Postie Pete. His fifth birthday party is listed as the worst fifth birthday party in the Official History of RuneScape. No such document exists, however Pirate Pete claims cannonballs were swapped with balloons maiming a significant number of guests.
From time to time, Postie Pete visits Pirate Pete. Players can have a piratey conversation with Postie.
- Dramatic irony is experienced when Pirate Pete knocks the player unconscious. The person playing knows exactly what happens every time, but the in-game character has no idea.
- When Postie Pete turns up, Pirate Pete will say to him it is "all quiet on the eastern front" which is likely to be a reference to the novel "All Quiet on The Western Front".
- Sometimes, when you speak with Pirate Pete to go back to Port Phasmatys, he'll say "Turn around three times, then clap your hands an say the place you want to go." This may be a reference to the movie, Wizard of Oz.
- Pirate Pete is summoned when reading the pirate spell sheet and knocks the user out, transporting them to Braindeath Isle or Mos Le'Harmless. If the sheet is read in Pete's vicinity, he will suspiciously remark that the magic won't work until moving further.
