Captain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The character was created by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio and is portrayed by Johnny Depp. 

Interestingly, the writer of Jack Sparrow's character has gone ahead to reveal that Jack Sparrow has been inspired by the shades of Lord Krishna.

Lord Krishna who is known to be an inspiration for many because of his sharpness and utmost strength, has also inspired the legendary screenwriters of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Ted Elliott one of the screenwriters for Jack Sparrow's character shares, "Jack Sparrow's character in Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most integral part of the film. The characterization of Sparrow is based on Lord Krishna who is a major deity in Hinduism. While writing the character sketch of Jack Sparrow, we referred to the description of Lord Krishna, various shades of the Almighty, which helped us a lot in making the whole character of Jack Sparrow into existence".

In the films, Sparrow is one of the nine pirate lords in the Brethren Court, the Pirate Lords of the Seven Seas. He can be treacherous and survives mostly by using wit and negotiation rather than by force. Similarly, Lord Krishna is listed as the 57th name in the Vishnu Sahasranama who defeated with his wit and bravery.
