In Pirates of the Caribbean Online, the term undead refers to a member of Jolly Roger's army of walking skeletons - poor souls brought back from the dead to serve in his revenge, sometimes French or Spanish ghosts haunting the islands.
Undead have no fear, no matter what level of opponent they face, and will attack without mercy and giving no quarter. Fortunately, every weapon in the pirate's Weapon Belt can do them harm. Once the sod's carcass has taken enough damage, they will collapse - releasing Jolly Roger's hold on them and freeing their spirits. Most consider serving in this devil's army to be a fate worse than death.
Historically, undead referred to anything that had died once then been resurrected. This included zombies, vampires, and other creatures of horror. Despite common beliefs, when one is affected by the Muertos Moon they are not a zombie. Zombies are re-animated corpses that are somewhat subject to the laws of nature, like disease, fatigue, and decomposition. During the curse, pirates are turned into undead skeletons, whose flesh is bound by dark magic.
- Undead are usually pictured as ragged skeletons with little flesh on them and ragged clothing. However, Undead Spanish minions wear some armor. This does not affect their stats.
- Undead are sometimes pictured as having green shining orbs for eyes; most of the time, however, their eye sockets are empty.
- It is known the Undead can speak.

All Spanish Undead use Dual cutlasses.
Facing one of Jolly Roger's army is frightening enough, but these baddies are even stronger, deadlier and more terrifying.
