* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'' features Blackbeard as one of the numerous occupants of Hell who Johnny Gat and Kinzie can recruit as an ally. He's sheltering from TheLegionsOfHell on his ship, and has PowerTattooes and creepy GlowingEyes to make him instantly recognizable.

* ''Anime/SDGundamWorldHeroes'' has a character based off of Edward Teach named Edward Second V, second-in-command of Benjamin V2 Gundam, who's based off of the real Edward Teach’s captain Benjamin Hornigold. What's curious about this is that Edward and Benjamin are also based off of the Second V and the Victory 2 Gundam respectively, both of which are MidSeasonUpgrade[=s=] of the Victory Gundam from ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'', with the Second V replacing the Victory 2 in the novelization.



* DragonInChief: Stede Bonnet, injured from a previous sea battle, struck an alliance with Blackbeard and allowed him to take temporary command of his vessel while he recovered. However, the more experienced and charismatic Blackbeard quickly turned the rookie captain's crew to his side and took total control of his ship, leaving Bonnet a prisoner in all but name and a captain in name only. The only reason the pretense a partnership was continued was because Bonnet never attempted to take back his authority while they sailed together.

The only reason the pretense a partnership was continued was because Bonnet never attempted to take back his authority while they sailed together.



* FireAndBrimstoneHell: One of the iconic stories revolves about his crew discussing their probable afterlife destination and deciding to see whether they could take it. They took some sulfur pots below decks and sealed it up to see how long they could take it. One by one, they broke and fled, gasping, for air. Blackbeard, unsurprisingly, was the last to emerge, and he did not so much flee as saunter out, proud of his endurance.

* KickTheDog: His relationship with Stede Bonnet. Blackbeard betrayed his trust, usurped command of his ship for nearly a year and, after the two had obtained royal pardons, robbed Bonnet's ship of all valuables and supplies and fled while Bonnet was briefly away getting a clearance to go privateering.


Born in the town of Bristol, (maybe), Edward Teach (or Edward Thatch) (circa 1680 – 22 November 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was the most famous pirate of [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfPiracy The Golden Age]]. He was not the richest, nor was his career the longest, and he probably wasn't even the meanest, but he set the standard for Golden Age piracy, codifying the image in popular culture. When we think of pirates, he is the first one to come to mind. Maybe because of his flair for drama, and his weaponization of the terrifying pirate image.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' gives him a LighterAndSofter treatment that is closer to the historical record than any other popular culture portrayal. He's in fact highly heroic and friendly and his final stand is one of the TearJerker moments of the game featuring a line of dialogue that best encapsules his romantic appeal:
-->'''Blackbeard:''' In a world without gold, we might have been heroes.
* Blackbeard appears ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' as a Rider-class Servant and as a major antagonist in the Okeanos singularity. This depiction of him is...a ''lot'' different than most. For one thing, unlike his historical self who was feared by all and used his reputation to intimidate his enemies, ''Fate's'' Blackbeard comes off as a complete buffoon to everyone who meets him, [[ObfuscatingStupidity which is partially something he does on purpose]], as he takes advantage of people not taking him seriously. These includes acting like a perverted {{Otaku}} with interests on little girls and speaking with LeetLingo. As a whole though, he's routinely treated as the resident ButtMonkey by not only the protagonists, [[TheFriendNobodyLikes but the other Servants working for him as well]].
* VideoGame/SidMeiersPirates features Blackbeard as the second most notorious pirate in the game(only beaten by Henry Morgan). As such, he plays the role of a BonusBoss within the game, and defeating him serves as a great way to increase your own infamy. [[ShownTheirWork His face is even shrouded in smoke from the fuses hidden in his beard]].



* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': The guys visit Blackbeard to discover that he's an environmentalist who's more preoccupied with saving the whales than pirating.

The patron saint of codifier of all things pirate in film, Robert Newton, portrayed him in the 1950s RKO film ''Blackbeard The Pirate''. Newton, who effectively created the modern perception of what pirates are with his portrayal of Long John Silver in the Disney version of ''Teasure Island'', was of course perfect casting for history's most notorious pirate.
