In the Normal Mode of this level, the player has to beat Pirate Zombies at Level 1.
Crazy Dave and Penny appear:
Penny: I thought we were trying to get back home and get your taco.
Crazy Dave: But Pirates! Hang on to your parrots and peg legs! Crazy Dave and Penny leave
After completing the level:
Crazy Dave: Shiver me timbers. I've always wanted to do some swashbuckling!
Crazy Dave: And I've always wanted a poop deck of my own.
Penny: Yes, let's go. I'd hate for him to improvise a poop deck here.
The Swashbuckler Zombie can land deep inside the player's defense unexpectedly, and can wreak havoc even when its health is as low as a regular Pirate Zombie. Unlike the international version of this level, it can also appear on a lane with planks, and there is a huge Raiding Party! ambush at the final wave, so the player should either have a row of Wall-nuts to stop them, or a defense with high firepower to defeat them fast.
