Much of the plot of The Wind Waker concerns Tetra's Pirate Crew. Though many in number, each has his own personality, and they follow Tetra as loyally as they did when her mother was the head of the crew. They travel the Great Sea on an unnamed ship in search for treasure. Very little is known of Tetra's pirates background and origins. They used to serve under Tetra's mother orders, but after she passed away, Tetra followed in her footsteps and became their new leader. The pirate crew are known to be extremely loyal and follow whatever orders they are given to by "Miss Tetra," showing their dedication towards their leader at any given moment.
- Senza appears to be the con-man of the crew as he is very talented in persuasion.
- Gonzo is (next to Tetra) the highest ranked of the pirates, he steers the ship.
- Nudge is the strongest of the crew, he councils Tetra in decision making.
- Mako is called the brains of the ship and the king of invention.
- Zuko is the lookout on the ship.
- Niko is the lowest ranked of the pirates.
