* '''Rogues:''' Pirates featured as dashing romantic heroes and rebels, ranging from the [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain rather goofy]] to the [[LaResistance totally rebellious]]; generally, they follow a [[ScoundrelCode code]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards of]] [[HonorAmongThieves honor]]. Frequently featured as ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything to prevent their romantic aura being tainted by them harming innocents. The Romantics were fond of this trope, as in Creator/LordByron's ''The Corsair''. It appeared in Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'' with pirates who can not oppress an orphan (and swallow any and all claims to be an orphan) and are easily overcome by appealing to their loyalty to Queen Victoria.\\ In RealLife, this type of pirate tended to overlap with {{Privateer}}s (people hired by a government during wartime to capture enemy vessels or otherwise cause problems for enemy ships). 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.

* '''Brutes:''' Some pirates are [[BigBad major threats]] whenever they appear. Seeing the Jolly Roger on the horizon is bad news for the dashing, clean-cut heroes, who will soon have to deal with a wave of unwashed brutes intent on looting as much as they can, killing the crew, and… ahem… [[RapeAsDrama "abducting"]] the women. Generally the easy go-to bad guys for anything in TheCavalierYears. These pirates are pure evil. They have, in fact, thoroughly earned their RealLife designation ''hostes humani generis'' or in literal Latin, "enemies of the human race".

Elizabethan-era privateers (such as the aforementioned Sir Francis Drake) used to be quite popular but have fallen out of favour in recent decades.

[[TheThemeParkVersion Not to be confused with]] real pirates. Were you attacked by pirates around the 1700s, the 'nicest' you could hope for would probably lean towards ChaoticGood - they would steal your things but ''might'' not harm you. [[RuthlessModernPirates Modern day piracy]] is less covered in fiction, with the 1979 Soviet film ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0151987/ Piraty XX veka]]'' ("Pirates of the 20th Century", one of the first real Soviet "action" films) and the Japanese anime ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' being some of the few rare examples of the opposite. So far, the pirates currently active off the coast of Somalia have been interested in money, not lives (indeed, their "business model" is based on extorting ransom from the shipping companies), but the entire meme of pirates is in danger of becoming a huge FunnyAneurysmMoment these days.

Note that in fiction, many Pirate Captains are presented as absolute masters of their ship, with TheMutiny being regarded as fully as serious as on merchant or naval ships. In RealLife, the 'lawless men' - who rebelled against the very notion of having masters - often constructed crude democracies. It was not uncommon for the captains of large, organized vessels had absolute command only in battle; out of battle, he could be freely deposed -- and often marooned -- for incompetence. Even those that did comprise the single authority on their ship could find themselves out of the job if they screwed up enough.

** The Straw Hats are SO ChaoticGood that they're never even shown (successfully) stealing loot. Lampshaded in the Skypeia arc, when they tried to steal a bag of gold... except that the owners of said gold had just decided to give it to them as a reward. Luffy was a better thief when he was a vagrant.

* ''Film/{{Treasure Island|1950}}'' -- The 1950 Walt Disney movie version of this featured British actor Robert Newton as Long John Silver. His wildly over the top performance as the ragged, full-bearded, wild-eyed, sinister but charismatic pirate leader was purely his own creation and quite unlike the actor himself. (He had been considered for the role of the role of the handsome, brooding Heathcliff in the 1939 version of ''Literature/WutheringHeights'', narrowly losing out to Creator/LaurenceOlivier.) His distinctive ''Argggh'' growl and English West Country accent have been imitated by hundreds of millions of people over the decades. It is unlikely that any line of recorded cinema can match its popularity.
** Given that Robert Louis Stevenson was in the West country for his health and used two pubs in Bristol as models for those in ''Treasure Island'' and given the distinctive 'arrr' local accent, Robert Newton wasn't that far from the truth.
* ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'' is...well, the above but with muppets. While the original plot's obviously been mucked around with quite a lot, they play a lot of the dramatic moments completely straight. "Shiver My Timbers" is an especially chilling song, given the film.

** 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.
* ''{{Exalted}}''; The Lintha. A family of terrifying, demon-descended, bloodline-obsessed, super-powerful buccaneers. Who make you eat your shipmates. They will normally leave a survivor - just one - to spread the tales of their viciousness and bloodlust.

* ''KyouranKazokuNikki'''s tenth episode is 21 minutes of pirate absurdity. This on top of the normal absurdity the show already has. Interestingly, the episode is about the differing ideals of shows like ''Manga/OnePiece'' where [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything the lead pirates don't do anything]] and the traditional view. [[spoiler:The traditional view wins.]]

* ''YTheLastMan'' - Because of the shortage of food and medicine caused by the plague the Australian navy has turned to piracy - one of their spies even has an eyepatch. [[spoiler:It later turns out that the Australians are actually trying to ''stop'' the pirates who are taking all the food in exchange for heroin.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' has its share, from the various undead and living pirates that are in service to the Cryx Nightmare Empire (All Brutes to man/Ogrun/animated corpse/ghost/goat-woman), to the motley crews that plunder along the Broken Coast that can be Roguish or Brutes. Lastly there is the Talion Charter, an alliance between 3 of the nastiest pirate captains; Fiona the Black, one of the most influential members of decentralized cult dedicated to jerkass goddess of magic. Broadsides Bart, a Captain Hook-expy with shotgun instead of a hook who also happens to be secretly a privateer doing dirty work for the local navy power that publicly professes neutrality. Lastly the founder of the group, Captain Phinneus Shae, a renegade merchant navy warcaster that has considerable bounty on his head from his former employers, and through his banker may in fact be doing literal wetwork for the landlocked Dwarven kingdom.
