The Pirate (海賊, pirate) is one of the intermediate vocations available in Dragon Quest VII. Keeping with the title's nautical theme, they embody the ferocity and unpredictability of the seven seas.


The pirate is toughened by the high seas and a life of banditry. The pirate has high agility and has a chance of stealing items from enemies after battle. The pirate combines the skills of a Sailor and a Thief and requires mastery of both to unlock. Pirates are unique among VII's vocation in that they possess two traits: becoming highly resistant to Maelstrom and more prone to pilfer as they advance in rank.
