The Never Land Pirate Code of Rules, better known as the Pirate's Code, is a code of conduct invented outlining the proper rules of engagement and protocol both on and off the high seas, among governing pirates in the Jake and the Never Land Pirates series. It played a key role in the special Jake Saves Bucky and continued in some of the episodes in the series.



The Code a large scroll containing the rules for pirates occasionally followed. Many of the pirates sailing the Never Sea and even Peter Pan believed the code as the law. However, for pirates like Captain Hook, the code is more like "guidelines" than actual rules.
