* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has The Obligatory Pirate's Cove on the Mysterious Island of Mystery, which is full of stereotypical pirates. They TalkLikeAPirate, engage in [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland Insult Beer Pong]], and drop bottles of rum. Though for some reason, they swear by [[TheMonkees Mike Nesmith's]] locker instead of [[NamesTheSame Davy Jones]].

* ''Series/{{QI}}'' did a segment on real life pirates and the differences from their fictional portrayals. For one thing, rules on pirate ships tended to be very strict, including "lights out at 8pm sharp", "no playing music on a Sunday", "no smuggling women aboard", any woman who ''did'' happen to be on board and was raped, her rapist "shall suffer present death", etc. It was also pointed out that the Captain only had authority in combat, and in virtually all other situations the Quartermaster was the one in charge, and most major decisions tended to be made democratically. Also, none of them spoke in the [[TalkLikeAPirate stereotypical pirate accent]].

In RealLife, this type of pirate tended to overlap with {{Privateer}}s (people commissioned by a government during wartime to capture enemy vessels or otherwise cause problems for enemy ships, and paid with the prizes they took). The Spanish viewed [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Drake Sir Francis Drake]] as a pirate, and the British, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Paul_Jones John Paul Jones]] (not remotely [[Music/LedZeppelin that]] [[ThemCrookedVultures one]]). Many fictional pirates demonstrate some principles by preying only on their nation's enemies, or only the EvilOverlord's, etc., despite the lack of official letters of marque.

* In ''Film/{{Stardust}}'', we meet a group of SkyPirates. Led by a CampGay RobertDeNiro. They don't do any piracy, but they ''do'' do some smuggling. Which is also illegal, but perfectly safe to put on the silver screen.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' world of Golarion has the Shackles, essentially a pirate paradise. It has been thoroughly explored in both an Adventure Path, a Pathfinder Adventure Card Game base set, and a whole line of accessories. The [[PlayerCharacter PCs]] become involved in a factional fight between [[Main/ChaoticGood Roguish]] and [[Main/ChaoticEvil Brutish]] pirates.
* The now out-of-print roleplaying game ''Furry Pirates'' was about... well, [[FurryFandom furry]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin pirates]].

Dashing villains who lived free on the open sea, with a [[PirateParrot parrot]] on [[ParrotPetPosition each shoulder]] and a chest full o' gold. Fond o' drinking and prone ta fights, out to live "a short life and a merry one." The pirates we know and love were greatly influenced by those of ''Literature/PeterPan'' and ''Literature/TreasureIsland''.
