** They also have a board game in the same setting, ''TabletoGame/TerrorOfTheSkies''.
* Captain Gyrfalcon from ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', who--mainly out of greed and an old grudge--harasses the airships of the Haslanti League, who are the only significant power with a meaningful air force in the entire North. He dresses like a classic pirate, and sports a sidearm (which is actually a small flamethrower, not a gun, but whatever).

Strangely, [[OrphanedEtymology they are still called Air Pirates]] despite the lack of ''any other kind of pirates'' or sea as such in a world with no oceans and floating continents. It also draws a distinct line between idealized pirates and real ones: ''Real'' pirates are called, appropriately, Black Pirates. Blue Rogues, on the other hand, [[JustLikeRobinHood are generally adventurers and explorers who only attack]] TheEmpire's [[JustLikeRobinHood ships and Black Pirates.]]

* The Flash MMOG ''VideoGame/{{Skyrates}}'' is set in a world recovering from an apocalyptic war which reduced the remaining viable landmass to a collection of scattered islands. Ripped from the ground and cast adrift in the sky through the use of {{Unobtainium}}, these Skylands carried with them the last remnants of civilization. Now split into several color-coded factions, the descendants of these survivors travel and trade between the Skylands and are preyed upon en route by air pirates operating from smaller, unmapped 'skylets'.

* The Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''Sky Pirates!'' blurred the line between this trope and SpacePirates with its setting being a solar system within a pocket universe which is fully pressurized with a breathable atmosphere. The pirates (and all the other "space" ships) are able to travel in a variety of non-airtight steampunk-esque vessels, some with open decks.
