  1. The Dread Pirate Roberts. Naturally.

  2. Ben Grimm as Blackbeard. Arrr!

  3. Luffy! :)

  4. Yul Brynner!! He rocks in The Buccaneer!

  5. Well, Alan already took the best answer, so I’ll go with my follow-up favorite: Bartholomew Roberts.

  6. Captain Pugwash!

  7. Anne Bonny. Why should the guys have all the fun?

  8. The seaplane pirate chief from “Porco Rosso,” who settled a fight over who should show a lady to her seat by throwing a grenade into the melee. :D

  9. Monica,

    Yeah! I’m glad to see someone name one of the many infamous female pirates.

  10. Jack Sparrow, because of the great mix of when he plans it and when he makes it up as he goes along. (:

  11. Han Solo. He was a pirate, right? A space pirate.

  12. Kevin Kline as the Pirate King (Pirates of Penzance, 1983 film). Hands down favorite since before I could walk. :)

  13. At the moment? Pirate Zevran. Stupid, stupid Bioware. ;)

  14. The Black Pirate played by Douglas Fairbanks in the movie of the same name (1926 2-strip technicolor). It has informed every pirate movie ever since either directly or indirectly.

  15. Kevin Lighton

    Vyse from the Skies of Arcadia videogame.

  16. Tim Curry’s Long John Silver…gotta give it up for his role in Muppet Treasure Island. =)

  17. Mmm…I’ll have to agree with Dread Pirate Roberts!!

  18. Pirate Hunter Zoro!!!! Roronoa is my favorite character of One Piece, though before being a pirate he was a pirate hunter, LOL :D Well, I’m torn between Yul Brynner, because someone mentioned him and I got weak in the knees, LOL :D Awesome pirates all over!!! :D

  19. Captain Hook! (Barrie, not Disney.)

  20. I love the Flying Dutchman from Spongebob Squarepants! :D

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Johanna and Ed!

  21. […] Comics Worth Reading, you could win six volumes of One Piece. Post a comment to enter! Get your creative juices flowing for The Yaoi Review’s funny […]

  22. Hmm… probably Captain Jack Sparrow!!! He’s so drunk half the time in the movies though…

  23. Edward Newgate (Whitebeard), he speaks nobly and can take down anyone, but most of all he cares for his “sons”! xD

  24. Tony Tony Chopper

  25. I absolutely love Francois L’Ollonais. He was quite the pirate and Roronoa Zoro is based on him. He was a ferocious pirate, but ended up dying a most gruesome death.

  26. My Favorite would have to be Jack Sparrow. He is funny, original, always drinking rum.

  27. My favorite fictional pirate is Monkey D. Luffy.

  28. favorite pirate is Usopp because he’s the king of liars.

  29. I’m gonna have to go with Capitan Jack Sparrow, as well. Maybe it’s the eyeliner?

  30. Sir Crocodile!

  31. Does Kaptain K. Rool from Donkey Kong count?

  32. Corsair, of the Starjammers from X-Men!

  33. Don Karnage from TailSpin! :D

  34. Zoro!

  35. Pirate Hunter Zoro.

  36. Zombielord69

    i would say LUFFY!!! or zoro.

  37. Luffy, because he kicks ass! :)

  38. Captain Blood, he was a one of a kind pirate.

  39. Pirate Queen Meg Malloy, followed by Polly Pringle.

  40. Not one mention of Space Pirate Captain Harlock?? He was “it” in the 70s and 80s, man. He personified Matsumoto’s disgust with the kowtowing Japanese government back then. Harlock flys under no one but his own, his flag of freedom on the Sea of Stars. We’re talking about man’s romance, when all the main characters were hot-blooded, strong, and self-sacrifice still meant something. Sniffling touchy-feely harem boys need not apply.

  41. Red-Haired Shanks is the best of course!

  42. Since picking Nami would be too easy I will go with Captian Harlock. Harlock is a man’s man and a ladies dream. Plus the handsome face and awesome fashion sense do not hurt at all. Also sign me up for a laser cutlass.

  43. Sabalom Glitz! He would argue that he’s not a pirate at all, but it’s hard to ignore what this space traveller is really up to.

  44. My first two picks would have been the Thing as Blackbeard and Harlock, so… Captain Morgan!

  45. Ching Shih (c. 1785 – 1844)Female pirate who came into power after her husbands death. Robbed villages from Macau to Canton until her “retirement”. She proceeded to take all her loot and opened a gambling house with her adopted son turned husband.

  46. My favorite pirate:
    The runner-up is Yul Brynner as Jean Lafitte in The Bucaneer. So tortured, so poetic. A fiction based on a real pirate. Also the first pirate I encountered, thanks to a TV screening of the film when I was but a wee tad.
    But my number one pirate is pure fiction: Captain Clegg. Originally Christopher Syn, a placid vicar of Dymchurch, England, Clegg became a bloodthristy pirate when his attempt to save his fiancee was unsuccessful. He assumed the name Clegg and none of his men knew from whence he came, only that they feared him more than death. After being hanged by own men and left for dead, Clegg resurfaced and once again assumed the identity of Syn, only to ride by night as the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh. Clegg’s adventures are chronicled in the Russell Thorndyke novels and one film, the 1964 Hammer film Night Creatures.
    Bloodthirsty, driven by secrecy, rage and a passion for his own brand of justice. That’s the pirate stuff we know and love!

  47. Ted Naifeh’s “Polly and the Pirates”

  48. Cursed Pirate Girl!

  49. Airship pirates. Hardcore.

  50. Tron Bonn! The best pirate ever!
