* In ''Literature/Babel17'' by Creator/SamuelRDelany, while they are technically privateers, the crew of ''Tarik's Mountain'' are barely a step away from being full-blown pirates. They're generally on the Alliance side, but there are suggestions that they're not above a little opportunist looting of both sides in a pinch. Fortunately, when they rescue Wong's ship, the captain turns out to be a big fan of Wong's poetry, and therefore welcomes her and her crew.

* The Rogues faction from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' are these being made up of criminals and various other outsiders who prey on others in the Solus system. Among them, the de facto leader of this otherwise disjointed confederation of individuals, Reyna, best exemplifies the trope. She even has her own CoolStarship called the Fortune's Favor, a massive capital ship which serves as both Reyna's home and the head of the Rogue fleet when it needs one.

* ''VideoGame/{{Celestus}} has some of the second type, rum and [[TalkLikeAPirate Ahoy !]] included. They ''do'' steal your ressources, though.

* The pirate clans in the ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' have gotten to the point (as of ''Terran Conflict'') where they've become [[NGOSuperpower N.G.O. Superpowers]], with capital ships and space stations constructed out of [[UsedFuture kitbashed derelicts]], while using AceCustom fighters with sweet flaming NoseArt. Rather than trying to exterminate them (they respawn at their home base), advanced players generally work to befriend them by selling them [[FantasticDrug spaceweed and space fuel]]. Ditto the Yaki, who are space pirates for all intents and purposes, though they use a motif of {{yakuza}} [-[[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]-]. Pirates return in ''Videogame/XRebirth'', but most of the Type 2 traits are either absent or toned down; most of the pirate clans are rogue fanatics (religious, sovereign citizens, etc).

** The ''40k'' spin-off RPG ''RogueTrader'' has space pirates (human or otherwise) as one of the most common enemies, and the rules let you go pirate if you wish. The Rogue Traders count to some extent as well, being {{privateer}}s able and expected to launch full-scale planetary invasions. One of the supplements to the gameline, Hostile Acquisitions, explicitly gives the players the option to become a Reaver or a Swashbuckler archetype.

** In ''VideoGame/WingCommanderPrivateer'' and ''Privateer 2: The Darkening'', space pirates serve as {{mooks}} in the games. The former even has a mission series operating from a pirate base, as a drug smuggler. Although mostly just the "murderous fighter pilots" variety, some of the headshots on the communication screen show the pirates with what look like high tech eye patches, though they could be cybernetic eyes they certainly fit with the theme of the RecycledInSpace variant of space pirate.

* ''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.
