* ''ComicBook/BuckGodotZapGunForHire'' has "the [[AlliterativeName Pistol Packin' Polaris Packrat]]"; also, one cyborg ex- asteroid pirate turned SpaceMarine sergeant, who became rather unpopular for the time (brief) he lived after this discovery. Also, that guy on the starpirates.net banner who boasted before Buck -- but he was bad.

*** Except that Earthly pirate radios mostly use their own transmitters without a broadcast license, these pirates hack into transmitters owned by others, making their activity a bit more close to that of actual pirates, as those transmitters are aboard vessels.

* The main antagonists in the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series are called space pirates, but are actually an organized alien army rather than small bands of individuals out for plunder. Their motives are invariably portrayed as sinister, but it's always implied that they have some larger goal at work, even if the precise details are unclear (it mostly comes down to "breed Metroids," "mine Phazon," etc. so that they can be used for galactic conquest). Although their marauding activities are an important part of the series's backstory -- [[YouKilledMyFather Samus's parents were killed in a Pirate raid]] when she was a young girl, and the events of the original game were kicked off by the Pirates raiding a Federation ship that had Metroids on it -- they are only rarely seen performing any piracy on-screen; at the beginning of ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid,'' Samus investigates the ransacked Ceres Space Station and confronts [[ArchEnemy Ridley]] just before he makes away with the Metroid hatchling, and in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption,'' Space Pirates are seen literally using {{Boarding Pod}}s to crash into and raid a fleet of capital ships. Besides the whole [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over The Universe]] thing, this is played close to the modern RealLife version.

** As Obi-Wan pointed out to him, he held both Jedi and Sith hostage, and, ''Jedi'' don't hold grudges.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS3E20Godfellas Godfellas]]", an unnamed space pirate (with three peg legs out of four, parrots on three of his four shoulders, and eyepatches on two of his three eyes) menaced the Planet Express Ship with galleon-style spaceships and cannons, vowing to send them to "Davy Jarg's locker" if they don't electronically transfer their space-doubloons, and realizing too late that his children are his only ''real'' treasures. What made it even funnier was Leela's explanation on what SpacePirates are: "They're like Pirates...but InSpace!"

** IN a slight variation, the episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS2E6TheLesserOfTwoEvils The Lesser of two Evils]]" featured Space Bandidos. They're easy to distinguish from other kinds of spaceborne brigands: if it's them, you'll hear maracas.
