Trivia

The name of this accessory in Japanese is "Loose Socks", which were a popular and trendy youth fashion item with Japanese school girls in the mid-90s at the height of the kogal subculture when the SFC version was released on December 6th 1996, but which have declined greatly in usage and popularity in the decades since, making this item feel rather outmoded and passé in an amusing way to many modern day Japanese players.

It's fairly likely that this accessory belongs to the captain of the Pirates' Den since she is a rebellious and brash girl, that the item is found in a drawer in her room, and the fact that all the other pirates are men.
