Brigand Kings are special brigands found occasionally when players attack red- or orange-ringed ships. Brigand kings cannot be distinguished from normal brigands before entering sea battle. Rather, the brigand king makes an announcement at the start of the sea battle and the brigand ship will display the <Brigand King> flag on the battle navigation screen. During the melee the normal swordfight puzzle background is replaced with a special "king-only" background. Once the battle ends the brigand king's ship disappears immediately.

Defeating a brigand king provides a special trinket particular to that king.

Old salts in the inn will provide information on the kings for their standard ten PoE fee. This information appears to be a random statement pertaining to a specific King gathering/plundering a certain type of fruit. How exactly these statements pertain to the Brigand Kings is uncertain.
