Joshamee Gibbs is a recurring character in all four Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
In The Curse of the Black Pearl, he has been dismissed from the navy and lives in Tortuga. His close friend, Jack Sparrow gets him to find a crew, which he makes Gibbs his first mate, to pursue Hector Barbossa. After the crew are captured by the undead crew of the Black Pearl, they are imprisoned in the ship. Elizabeth Swann later frees them but cannot pursuade them to rescue Jack and Will Turner. They leave Isla De Muerta with the Pearl. They later rescue Jack from Port Royal after he was to be hanged.
In Dead Man's Chest, he and the crew feel as though they are not earning the plunder they deserve as a crew. After escaping from Pelegosto and Jack's deal with Davy Jones, he organises to gather the 99 souls Jack requires, among them being a disgraced Norrington. After the Kraken attacks the Black Pearl, Gibbs is unsure about sacrificing the ship, however agrees. After Jack's death, he is the first to agree to go rescue him.
In At World's End, he assists Barbossa and his plans to acquire Sao Feng's navigational charts, a ship and a crew. He informs Jack about his predicament in the Locker, which the hallucinated Jack is unaware of. He joins Jack's crew again during the meeting of the Brethren Court and the battle of Calypso's Maelstrom. After Barbossa commits a second mutiny, he leaves Gibbs behind in Tortuga, where he resides again after a farewell to Jack.
In On Stranger Tides, he is sentenced to hang in London but escapes with Jack. When Barbossa is sent out in pursuit of Jack, he forces Gibbs to come along, as he has knowledge of Jack and his plans in relation to the The Fountain of Youth.

LEGO.com Description Edit
|This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Do not modify it. (visit this item's product page)|
Joshamee Gibbs knows his way around a ship- almost as well as he knows Captain Jack Sparrow. A seasoned pirate and Jack’s oldest (possibly only) friend, Gibbs is calm, virtuous and very superstitious. When he’s not off rescuing Jack, Gibbs is telling stories about their sordid adventures and celebrating with his leather flask. Despite Gibbs’ history of taking naps while the Black Pearl gets hijacked, Jack knows he’s a man to be relied upon.
