*** He also shows how pirates would work in practice -- they're interstellar traders who covertly supplement their income with smuggling and piracy, rather than permanent raiders operating from a secret base. All merchant vessels are armed against pirates (and because they hire out as mercenary warships) so carrying weapons isn't unusual; therefore stopping piracy involves covert intelligence work more often than dramatic space battles.

* Yondu and the Ravagers from ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy.'' Although we never see them actually do any pillaging on-screen, they are described as (and act like) a group that will steal anything, and everyone else treats them as such. [[spoiler: When they deploy in force for the finale they seem to be on an even keel with the force Novacorp has protecting their capital.]]

[[spoiler: When they deploy in force for the finale they seem to be on an even keel with the force Novacorp has protecting their capital. The sequel has the rowdier elements mutiny and kill off Yondu's loyalists; he and his first mate then wipe out the lot of them in one bloody fight with some help from Rocket. It then reveals this was only one independent faction out of a hundred, and not even the biggest one.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/LavenderCastle'' featured Short Fred Ledd, whose ship travelled on aether streams through space, which, given how much of the art design came from Creator/RodneyMatthews, unsurprisingly comes from his painting [[https://w-dog.net/wallpapers/1/88/328967406221746/rodney-matthews-the-ether-stream-river-travel-worlds-ship-world-star.jpg The Ether Stream]]. Fred even has an annoying robot parrot.

** Before that, a mid-90s story arc had Wonder Woman herself becoming one to topple [[TheEmpire a galactic slaving empire]]. It's as CrazyAwesome as it sounds.

* The entire premise of ''Videogames/SteamWorldHeist'', as its main gameplay is about the boarding and the pilfering.
