* The ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul]]'' series resident pirate Cervantes de Leon is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] as the games are set during the late 16th (and early 17th in ''[=SoulCalibur=] V'') century but his design cues harken to the UsefulNotes/GoldenAgeOfPiracy, which only begins in the mid-[=1600s=], thus being too early for the era.

* The "Trial of Franchise/{{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.

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.
