Compare and contrast SkyPirates. SpacePirates is when they are a few more centuries late. For modern, RealLife pirates of the type who are ''very good'' at shivering people's timbers (with an AK-47 not a cutlass), see RuthlessModernPirates. If the pirates are more concerned with ''looking'' the part than acting it, they're probably ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} villains Captain Stingaree and Cap'n Fear.
** Somewhat subverted in the case of Cap'n Fear and his crew, as Detective Harvey Bullock doesn't find them funny or charming at all ("I hate them [[{{Malaproper}} swishbucklers]].") and ''one of Fear's own men'' mutters about how he's getting "sick of this Popeye rap" (though he promptly changes his mind once the DarkChick threatens to slit his throat).
** In one GoldenAge story, Franchise/{{Batman}} fights a one-shot villain called Blackbeard, who styles himself after the historical Blackbeard

* The "Trial of {{Superman}}" arc had a character named Freelance, a bounty hunter who traveled space in a 18th century-style pirate ship, complete with holographic figurehead changeable to whatever female he happens to be attracted to. He enjoys letting enemies onto his ship simply to throw them off, fighting with a sword, and sports an eyepatch.
