I honestly can't vote for just one. I've always loved both. Now if you could have ninja pirates...that would rock!

Ninjas, definitely ninjas.

If all pirates resembled Orlando Bloom, you know who I'd vote for. Unfortunately I'd be swabbing the deck with a guy who looks twice as bad as Captain Barbossa. So....drumroll please...I choose ninjas.

Ninjas were paid assasins... Wage slaves....

Pirates lived outside of the systems. Pirates had a democratic society before America. Pirates (for the most part) shared equally, pay and responsibilities. I'm sorry, Pirates are truly great.

Not some assasins who are either pawns of the government or whoever the highest bidder is.

Pirates. Hell I even had a crew for acen. Yet my second in command decided to not get on the elevator because I was learing at her like a real pirate would!

Bah. Pirates stink (literally; they didn't bathe much). Lee will be mortified to know that most pirates were commerce raiders under letters of marque to governments--most of those governments being queens and kings. HAH! Pirates were monarchists!

Ninjas were true capitalists. They'd work for anybody who paid them. I'd compare them to Wal-Mart, but Tokugawa would fit that analogy better ("join us or die").

I'm going to go with ninjas. They dressed better, there haven't been any bishonen ninja to my knowledge (not TRUE ninja, anyway), and I think Ask a Ninja is awesome. Plus I think "Ninja III: The Resurrection" was one of the best movies to come out of the 1980s.

You know what?

Screw them both...Vikings were more ruthless than the two of them combined!

OH yeah...here's a quote I found online once... (XD) (now this is entertaining)

"The hate is an urban myth. Rumor has it these guys can be seen breakdancing together during the summer holidays. At their first meeting - in a Thanksgiving-like setting - Ninja Gaiden presented Jack Sparrow (of Pirates of the Caribbean fame) with some shurikens from QVC."

Weren't those the Privateers? Yes, some worked for Monarchist governments, however, most created full democratic societies in their fleets (sorry, been watching History channel). After a while, many broke from service, and actually fought for the colonies in the Revolution... After which the U.S. government jailed them for Piracy despite helping them win the war.

So, while we did have pirates in servitude, that was only a percentage of them (A large on in the early days, but more and more broke from the tradition).
