* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has Booty Bay, the TropeNamer for Booty Bay. Though, oddly enough, at least some pirates have actually been ''banned'' from docking there--the Bloodsail Buccaneers dock in a natural cove nearby. The mayor of the town even sics you on them as part of a quest. The town seems to be run jointly by the Steamwheedle Cartel and the Blackwater Raiders, the latter of which are (or at least were) pirates.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' has Blackheart's Bay, a battleground ruled by the titular pirate himself, with his [[GangplankGalleon Ghost Ship]] at the center of the map, waiting for any hero to deliver his [[PirateBooty Doubloons]] to him.

* In [[Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony the Winningverse]], the city of Rogueport, run by greedy merchant-princes and with guards so corrupt they are ''expected'' to supplement their income with bribes, is a notorious haven for BlackMarket deals in every sort of banned good, a hotbed of espionage and counterespionage, and a nest of organized piracy.

* The port in the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "The Waterbending Scroll." A rather scary-looking WretchedHive where "[[DoubleSpeak high-risk traders]]" read: "pirates", irresponsible Avatars and their inexperienced companions, and obsessive Fire Nation princes all end up at the same time.

* Neceda in the ''Literature/EddieLaCrosse'' series. It's a small-ish river port rather than a sea port, but has a lot of the same characteristics (like having actual residents be outnumbered by disreputable passers-through looking to get drunk and/or laid).

# '''[[{{Warcraft}} Booty Bay]]''', usually the hangout of your favorite {{pirates}}, whether [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything they're idle]] or not. Expect them to be on an unknown location where authorities try to be on the margin of things and raids every once in a while. Set either somewhere in the [[WelcomeToTheCaribbeanMon Caribbean]] or in Southeast Asia, though not exclusively, expect it to be on the 18th or the early 19th century. And yes, it's full of [[PirateGirl both kinds]] of PirateBooty.

*''Literature/{{TACK}}'': Sandy Harbor is actually a pretty nice little community, but they have seen the occasional thief or smuggler make trouble at least once a book so T*A*C*K can help solve the crime.
