The Pirate Pharaoh is a character from the Disney Junior series Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a legendary pirate pharaoh who was sealed deep within the Never Land Desert long ago.He is voiced by Aasif Mandvi.



According to the legend revealed by the Pirate Mummy, the Pirate Pharaoh once ruled over Pharaoh Valley with cruelty, magic, and despised intruders into his kingdom. While the Pharaoh is arrogant and intimidating it is later revealed that he is actually a kind and prideful ruler of the Never Nile before being sealed away by the wicked Queen Patra Cleo before she locked all the waters of the Never Nile away in a mountain.


The Pirate Pharaoh is very arrogant, egotistical and vain boasting his power and lording his title as Pharaoh over everyone, thinking very little of the feelings of others at times. Even after reconciling with Jake and his crew during his debut he still thinks somewhat little of them despite the numerous times the young pirates have to help him. He believes as pharaoh all who reside within the Never Land Desert most follow his command without question. When refused he can be short-tempered and even threatening using force to those who refuse him as seen in the episode "Mummy First Mate" when the Pirate Mummy decline the Pharaoh's offer to be his first-mate and joining him on his treasure hunt.
