* According to ''The Compleat ''Literature/{{Discworld}} Atlas'', Barrie Island in the Widdershins Ocean used to be a Booty Bay. These days it's a pirate themed SouvenirLand, the locals having discovered this is a much more efficient way of robbing people.

* Port Duck in ''TabletopGame/TheDiscworldRolePlayingGame'' is the Sto Plains/Agatean settlement on the Brown Islands, and is full of sailors who definitely aren't pirates. Confusing things, the parts the Agatean tourists see are also full of people who ''really'' aren't pirates but insist they ''are'', giving them all the excitement of drinking in a pirate tavern without actually being in any danger.

* Melee Island in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series.

* Melee Island in the The ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series.series loves to parody the Booty Bay version with every town in every game. The town on Melee Island in ''Secret'' would be if all the pirates weren't too afraid to leave because of [=LeChuck=], the town on Scabb Island in ''Revenge'' would be if all the pirates weren't too afraid to leave because of Largo [=LaGrande=] (and it's implied everyone is just lazy anyway), Puerto Pollo in ''Curse'' is a Booty Bay retirement community, and Melee again in ''Escape'' is until it's turned into a tourist trap. The only town to play it straight is (appropriately) Booty Island in ''Revenge''.

* Lion's Arch, the hub city in the ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' setting was founded as a Booty Bay in prehistory, but (mostly) all the pirates in the city are Respectable Business Owners now. Prior to the city being sacked, most of the architecture was built (somewhat impractically sometimes) beached ships and high arched bridges between them. The city is still run by a Captains' Council, though, and and many of the settings, events, explorable areas in the surrounding regions involve things piratical as players fight against (or sometimes with) pirates in various ways.

* The Pirate Republic of Saldonica in ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' is a city-state controlled by two pirate groups always hungry for more slaves for their GladiatorGames. While the Baedyed half is actually well-maintained, the Red Sails part is a WretchedHive where no-one dares to go without their weapons out.

* 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.
