That said, someday I'd like to be a pirate. Maybe I could be a ninja pirate. Then instead of yelling "AAAAAarrrrrrrrr" when I jumped aboard the enemy ship, I wouldn't yell at all, and climb into their cargo hold, steal their precious plunder, kill the captain with a few deft movements of my left thumb, and sneak off into the night. No one would be the wiser.

Depends on context.

Hand to hand, the ninja will always win, regardless of how dirty, cut-throaty, and viscious a pirate is. A pirate hasn't devoted his life to perfecting his art. He gets drunk and steals stuff, not that there's anything wrong with that.

When weapons are involved, the pirate gains some advantage. I'm assuming we're talking about the classic, shiver me timbers pirate. If that is the case, he'll have a single shot pistol or musket in addition to a sword (if we're talking about modern pirates w/ machine guns, game over for ninja). If the pirate can get the shot off, accurately, he'll stand a chance of comming out alive. But those pistols aren't the most accurate and the pirate is likely drunk. If he misses, he's worm food.

On the water w/ a full-scale boarding of another vessel... well, if a panther falls in a pirana-infested river, no matter how sleek and powerful the panther may be, he won't stand a chance.

What about in a hot dog eating contest? I bet the pirate has more experience pigging out, but the Ninja would probably be able to move his hands so fast, he could hide all the hot dogs on his plate in his Ninja garb without anyone noticing.

When a pirate sinks your ship, you're like "Damn you pirates! I hate you!" When a Ninja runs off with your left sock, you're like "huh, where's my left sock?"

what we need are pirate gnomes. Everyone knows that lawn gnomes are a force to be reckoned with, so let's see what a gnome pirate hybrid can do.

I've seen the first one before, but not the 2nd two.



That said....I think Pirates would be more fun than Ninjas. Cool things to say.....being on a ship...having pirate wenches in the "special" ports, drinking all the time, etc....

Pirates rule. Do not even have to attempt stealth or spend years learning to flip out. Get to hang out in pubs with wenches, yell AARRRRRGGGGHHH, and best of all, get to go sailing. Plus pirates can be good or nice, like Captain Feathersword. My two year old loves Captain Feathersword.

Ninjas have to sneak around everywhere and then flip out. Seems it would be awful hard to go from stealth mode to insane full tilt boogie flip out with out pulling a hammie or something.

Pirates can be fat and sweaty, like me. Ninjas tend to be small and lithe, of which I am neither.

Pirates drink grog, or rum, or ale, or beer. Not sure what Ninjas drink, but if it is sake, then score another point for pirates.

Pirates work for themselves. Ninjas have to take orders from a warlord or somesuch.

Do not know how a rational being could even consider the two occupations to be on the same level.

A thousand pardons. You must feel very secure in knowing that neither ninja nor pirate will be climbing into your bedroom window tonight. I remember that bloody, bloody day...July 13, 2002. The great Ninja/Pirate Massacre. I still have nightmares. They say none survived...for the fate of BF, nay, the world...I hope they're right.

In my world, all pirates are captains, or at least my scurvy arse is a captain. I do not recall seeing any Warlord Ninjas. Heck, even if you are just a deck level pirate at least you have something to aspire too. Get to trade in your headscarf and shoes with buckles (assuming you are a shoe wearing pirate) for a tri corner hat with a plume and some hip, hip boots.
