* In the Sega's iOS game ''War Pirates'' or ''Sen No Kaizoku'', you are the captain of the noble Freedom Pirates and live in a world that wears it's ''Manga/OnePiece'' influence on its sleeve. War Pirates has tons of characters including ninjas, samurais, robots, undead and animal people, with each given a fairly well-fleshed background reminiscent of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''

** Salladhor Saan is a wealthy Lysene buccaneer who commands a large fleet of pirate ships, operating mostly in the Narrow Sea between Westeros and Essos. It's mentioned he's more of an opportunist than a dedicated pirate -- besides outright pirating (which he absolutely does), he's also a sellsail (a ship-based mercenary) for those with coin, and even does honest trading and banking if there's profit in it. He's a much more Rougish type -- he's be well-mannered and polite, incredibly flamboyant (the only things more gaudy than his colorful ships are his expensive clothes) and not dishonorable, in his own way. He also comes for a long line of professional pirates.

* Dark Elves from ''Warhammer Fantasy Battle'' on whom Dark Eldar are based, are also largely pirates. They engage in piracy partly for the sake of survival (their homeland of Naggaroth has very little arable land, so they steal resources from other races and take them as slaves) and partly out of sheer malice for everyone else in the world.

** Ork Freebooterz. As the name implies, they are Orks who have taken a life of plunder and pillaging. Their banner is the "Jolly-Ork", and many of them dress like stereotypical pirates.

** Ork Freebooterz. As the name implies, they are Orks who have taken a life of plunder and pillaging. Their banner is the "Jolly-Ork", and many of them dress like stereotypical pirates. They straddle the line between the two types -- on the one hand, their flamboyance and piratical stereotypes, together with the way the Orks serve as the setting's CrazyAwesome comic relief, peg them as Rogues. On the other, being Orks, they're also violent, murderous thugs who'll raid, burn and pillage as they please and carelessly slaughter anyone in their way, putting them more in the Brute category.

** While the Greyjoys are somewhere between this and Norse Raiders, Euron "Croweye" Greyjoy is explicitly stated to be a pirate, among other things, before his first appearance. He's very much a Brutish one, raiding, killing and raping as he pleases, and amply earning his reputation as TheDreaded.
** In a smilar vein, the islands of the Stepstones are full nests of pirates and corsairs that are and endless source of danger for ships passing through or near them.

** ''Warhammer'' has an entire spin-off game packed with pirates and piratical tropes, in the form of Dreadfleet. Dreadfleet recreates the epic voyage of Pirate Prince Jago Roth and his Grand Alliance of pirate lords to stop the raids of Vampire Pirate Count Noctilus and his Dreadfleet from out of the Galleon's Graveyard -- an aquatic pocket dimension of gloom and misery something like a dark fantasy version of the Bermuda Triangle. Needless to say Roth's home port is the Pirate Principality of Sartosa -- an island off the coast of Tilea occupied by little apart from the most piratey pirates that ever pirated their way to infamy. And plenty of rum.
