Pirate language

Space Pirate language seen in the background of the Frigate Orpheon stage of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Pirate language in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

The Space Pirate language is observed throughout the Metroid Prime Trilogy as a written mode of hieroglyphic communication frequently seen on Pirate monitors and walls (in orange or blue). It is possible that the writing may correspond to the vocalizations made by the Pirates, but this is unconfirmed. Samus Aran's Translator Module is capable of translating Space Pirate data logs.


  • The word "Urtraghus" is stated in unused Corruption text to mean "large booty" in the language of Space Pirates. As with "Ultimate Warrior" in Chozo, "large booty" is the only known word in Space Pirate.
  • It is interesting to note that although the Observatory is a Space Pirate facility, the names of the planets are in Chozo.
  • Chozo text appears on several other Space Pirate devices, most notably the mechanical structure within the Monitor Station and the door control switch in the Phendrana Drifts.
