Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/WhodunnitUK'': In "Which Eye Jack", a murder occurs among a gathering of pirates. All of the suspects fit this trope to some degree, with Blackbeard being the most complete example, dressed in a tricorner hat, frock coat, EyepatchOfPower, HookHand, and SeadogPegLeg. Capatin Magee, the sole PirateGirl at the agthering, rocks a tight WaistcoatOfStyle, flouncy shirt, PaintedOnPants, and thigh high boots.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[TabletopGame/SeventhSea 7th Sea]]'' naturally uses this trope, as it is by and large set in a world centered on WoodenShipsAndIronMen.


* Buccaneer boots or thigh-high boots (the latter is often associated with female pirates in particular)

This image of pirates can pretty much be traced directly to Creator/RobertLouisStevenson, who single-handedly [[TropeCodifier codified]] the parrot and peg-leg image with [[Literature/TreasureIsland Long John Silver]] (despite him not having a peg leg). (The hook was popularized later by ''Literature/PeterPan'''s Captain Hook.)

** It's not totally clear if Mangle also adheres to the pirate theme despite being in the "Kids' Cove", as by the time of the game they're simply a mess of metal parts. Nonetheless, they are missing the white of one eye in an echo of an eyepatch (and the glowing yellow light within suggests [[GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath an undead appearance]]). Likewise, they feature a smaller, extra head that {{fanon}} speculates might belong to a PirateParrot when Mangle is in working order.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Subverted}} [[PlayedForLaughs for Laughs]] on ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' when Tobias wears one of his wife's blouses and gets on a boat filled with what he thinks are pirates. It's actually a Gay Rights protest.


* ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'', being based on the trope codifier, naturally follows this motif. Long John is particularly resplendent once he shows his true colors.
