The House of Pirates,[1] as its name would suggest, is where the Piratians take residence in Oracle of Seasons.



Surrounded by the Subrosian Cemetery, the House of Pirates is the place where the Piratians take up residence when their ship crash-lands in the Samasa Desert, driving them all the way into the hidden underground world of Subrosia.[2][3] The Piratians live in the House of Pirates until Link helps them escape by helping the Cap'n find his bell after completing the Ancient Ruins dungeon.

The House of Pirates is two stories tall. On the second story, there is a Piratian who will teach Link the correct pattern for opening the gate to Samasa Desert using a set of four drawers. On the roof of the Pirate House is a Portal that warps Link to a cave beneath Horon Village to the south, providing easy access to the area.

The Unlucky Sailor

After the Piratians leave Subrosia, a few of them get left behind. In a Linked Game, one of the Pirates, named the Unlucky Sailor,[4] who seems to believe strongly in luck, believes that the ship would never have crashed (and thus he would have never been left behind) if he knew the secret to being lucky.[5] Link obtains said secret from a young girl found south of the Black Tower in Labrynna in the past,[6] and can then tell to the Unlucky Sailor. The Unlucky Sailor will then upgrade the maximum number of Bombs Link can carry (up to 50 if he has obtained the previous upgrade, up to 30 if not), but only when he has exactly 777 Ore Chunks in his inventory.[7] The Unlucky Sailor will also give Link the secret to carrying more Bombs in Labrynna.


  • Although the building is currently named the "House of Pirates" due its residents, the Subrosian within indicates that it is actually his house and that the pirates are merely crashing there. Once they leave, he reacts angrily to Link's return, believing the Hylian intends to crash there as well.
