Arr! Blackbeard took five bullets and twenty stab wounds before going down. Ninjas don't even use guns. No contest.

Yes, pirates are tougher and more manly. Ninjas have to sneak around in the dark like cowards.

Which would you rather fight? A short Japanese in spandex or a bearded, angry European with a peg-leg and eye patch?

For the record, pirates may be manlier and tougher, but in a head on fight (no guns) a ninja would win. Their fighting styles and more developed where as a pirates movements would be predictable and sloppy, and their attack patterns are more obvious.

There are some ninjas that resorted to guns. Samurais used guns as well. Even during the time of Nobunaga. However, ninjas did not need guns. They didn't usually resort to direct combat, rather they used their minds and silently killed, where as your badass pirates got killed and replaced.He took five bullets and twenty stab wounds before he went down. He was probably just to fat to die quick.

Yeah they don't use guns because they kill people with their bare hands! try having two lethal weapons on you at all times. Some pirates don't even have two hands. Like Captain Hook...he got eaten by a crocodile by the way.

Pirates have treasure. Ninjas are broke.

Pirates have big crews, while ninjas work alone.

Pirates have guns, ninjas don't. Because of this, they are also smarter because they are more technologically advanced.

Pirates have sex with women at seaports. I've never seen a boyfriend/girfriend ninja pair.

Pirates have rum and get rum. They know how to have a good time.

Pirates will do anything to win. Ninjas have to follow guidlines.

Ninjas can't swim.

Pirates communicate better.

Dude! Pirates! Pirates are just as stealthy as ninjas, if not more since they ride in a big ship on the ocean and are still able to go undetected! PLUS they have kick ass swords and dress cooler too! And they basically did whatever they wanted whereas ninjas were typically samurais who had lost their honor.

Pirates are definitely not stealthy. Pirates are the exact opposite. I'm not even going to bother to argue with an idiot like you. Big Ship, Big ocean! No shit, they could hide. Ninjas could hide even in one small room. Pirates would be dead in that situation. Also, most people I know think that shinobi-katanas look cooler than your dumbs pirate swords. And again, ninjas mostly weren't dishonored samurai! Pirates could do whatever they wanted, until they were killed. ONce again, do some research: you sound like a douchebag.

OMG. SAMURAI AN NINJA ARE TO DIFFERENT OCCUPATIONS ENTIRELY. Samurais were the soldiers back then. Ninjas acted as scouts an assassins. ALSO, ninjas originated from China, they can't be dishonored samurais. To add onto that, being a ninja is essentially being a martial artists, since the origin of becoming a ninja was mastering the specific martial arts, which is essential to a ninja considering killing barehanded is quieter than a weapon. Being a samurai meant a Japanese knight, AND, ninjas held on to honor more than samurais. Samurais were hired by Daimyos in feudalism. They didn't work for the "Empire". And, there were more samurai betraying than ninja. For example, during Nobunaga's age, so much backstabbing. LITERALLY.

A ninja is a disgraced samurai while a pirate is a proud sailor of the seas whose main goal in life is to accumulate great wealth.

A ninja works for a wealthy or powerful person while a pirate is a lone wolf who works for no one but himself and works with a crew.

A ninja has ninjutsu and shuriken while a pirate has a gun.

Actually that is really the best reason ever: A ninja has hand-to-hand weapons and long range weapons that cause not so much damage and a pirate has a fucking gun! There's no more comparison after that! Pirates rule!

Pirates are most definitely not proud sailors. They are outcast sailors that sail the seas stealing, drinking, and sexin up women.

And yes they fight to accumulate wealth where as ninjas fight for something they believe in, which is the precisely why they are disgraced.

And you're saying that a pirate is a lone wolf that works with a crew? That doesn't really add up.

A gun is a weapon for cowards. A real fighter kills things with his/her bare hands and close range weapons. This requires more skill, training, and strength.

Therefore...pirates do not rule. BOOM!

I bet you don't even know how stupid you sound, do you? Ninja were not disgraced samurai, they were simple farmers in the Iga & Koga mountains of central Japan, although a few were disgraced samurai. But most weren't. Pirates tried to accumulate great wealth, but most ended up getting killed. Ninja were mercenaries, that had much more chances of accumulating wealth than the pirate. Pirates were also cruel, killers who fought with no honor. Ninja were masters of disguise, they could dress as totally different people. The pirate would have his guard down, and then the ninja would fight. A ninja doesn't have just ninjutsu (which isn't the martial art: Taijutsu is the correct term) and shrunken; ninja have: kusari-gama, bo staff, bow and arrow, shuko, neko-te, and their environment to use as their weapons. Pirates have a cutlass, and terribly slow and inaccurate guns. Bow & arrows, in the right hands, are much better than the "fucking gun" the pirates have. Next time, do some research before you argue: you sound like a fucking idiot. Ninjas rule!

I'm going to make a few points to settle this debate once and for all and prove that pirates are better than ninjas and I'm going to be realistic about this: FIRST OFF: Pirates and Piracy have been around ALOT longer than ninjas. Piracy originated in 13th Century B.C. in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas. Ninjas came about in 14th Century A.D Japan. SECOND: Pirates were incredibly brutal, vicious killers. They weren't frequently drunk as depicted in pop culture. In fact, pirates were rarely able to get their hands on beverages such as rum due to their life at sea. Raids and Pillages idn't come often. THIRD: A ninja's skills are greatly exaggerated. That fast as lightning stuff or whatever is absolute bullshit. They're not super human, they don't have "powers" that regular people do not. LASTLY: Pirates are real. Let me explain. We know pirates exist. They're active at this very moment. A ninja is an ideal. They're almost a myth in a kind of a way. You don't ever here of ninja attacks in the news. There are no secret ninjas cults that aren't made of geeks living in their mothers' basements. The point is: The Ninja is extinct and Piracy is alive and well, END OF STORY!

Pirates would definitely win, because they have rum or grog which makes them invincible to pain, and the ninjas wouldn't be able to get close because they would catch scurvy and die (pirates are now immune to scurvy, obviously). Also in the unlikely event that ninjas DO kill a pirate, he would come back as a ghost (cuz all pirates do) and steal the ninjas soul. Finally pirates are stronger and fearless and if a ninja wanted to say something he would have to stop and do weird hand gestures, and get killed, but a pirate would just shout 'Aaaaaaaaar' or 'Avast' or 'Ahoy'. Also that would scare the ninjas. Pirates win

The main argument for why a pirate would win is because pirates have guns. What people fail to realize is that you can't shoot what you can't see. A group of ninjas could easily sneak on a pirate ship and kill them all before anyone could realize that the ninjas were on board. The only chance a pirate would have is if they somehow knew the attack was coming.

Ninjas are also way cooler in my opinion. You might see a pirate having all the girls and fun, but when will you just plain SEE a ninja? Ninjas also rely on strategy and stealth. Pirates rely on brute force and blowing people up with cannons. That strategy doesn't take much effort to do, unlike the ninja way.

Side: Ninja

I agree, the ninjas are more refined. Also, despite ninjas no longer existing, they advanced much quicker. Ninjas are no longer alive yet when they started and when they ended there was an extremely high rate of change. The ninjas improved on their skills, training, ethics, and educations. The pirates however came before ninjas, survived after ninjas, and they're still doing things the same way with different objects. Instead of pistols and cannons, guns and explosives, instead of wooden ships... well you get the idea.

C. Pirates are drunk so much they cant tell the difference between sober and drunk because they drink so much rum its the same.

D. Look how many points ninjas have compared to pirates.

E. Pirates have poorly made weapons that couldn't cut paper

F. Pirates eat and drink the same thing all day long. Rum and bread that you have to soften in your mouth for two hours before you can eat it.

Ninja's don't need guns, they're physically and mentally adept enough so as to render their other skills (espionage, martial arts abilities, etc) much more effective then waving weapons all over the place. A (probably very unhealthy) pirate with a big sword or a (probably not particularly accurate) gun would be no match for a ninja with an awesome ability to sneak up on a target and excellent close-combat skills.

Side: Ninja

Ninja's are a thousand times better. They don't need guns, they can kill a dozen people easy before anyone even knows they are there. Where as Pirates would need a dozen people just to try and kill one guy, and even with a gun wouldn't be able to hit a ninja.

And to all those people saying Pirates get all the women, they have to be a pirate and rape women, or pay whores to get any. Ninja's on the other hand get women who adore them for who they are. Often times these women don't even know they're ninjas in the first place. Because Ninja's are respectable people, often times powerful business men. Where as Pirates are just drunken louts who occasionally live long enough to enjoy their treasure. If they haven't blown it on drinks and women first.

The only reason anyone likes Pirates is because of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, but if you put two Ninja's on the Black Pearl, then that lousy third movie would have been about 20minutes long, 400 times better, all the main characters would be dead except for the chick who would run off with the Ninja, and it would have been worth the $9 I wasted on that piece of crap.

First of all, one cannot fight ninjas, one can only defend.

Secondly a battle would never occur. One night a ship would leave a harbor encumbered with pirates and loots of foreign lands. Within a fortnights time, the ship would return crashing into the harbor from whence it came with all its precious treasures intact, but no soul would be found upon and within the ship. Nothing would be known of the quiet massacre.

I have watched Pirates of the Caribbean which is funny but in reality they would be dead for being so dumb. Ninjas can just fight their way through anything being that they have stealth and wit while the pirate is drunk 3/4 of the time. People sometimes think that you can't compare with a ninja to a pirate because a pirate has a gun but a gun is not necessary for a ninja is fast and quickly kill the pirate in a blink of an eye. Another point of people's is that all the ninja do is kill by hiding in the shadows but actually it won't make a difference for they are faster and if the pirate knew who he/she was fighting against then he/she's last thought when they are defeated (which they would) is that he/she has been defeated by a ninja so dies with a unhappy thought while instead they are killed silently they would not suffer pain and they would not die knowing that they died losing to a ninja who the despise but dies a quick silent death.

I am a researcher for the issue at hand and I have been looking at recent statistics to determine which of the two subjects - ninjas and pirates - are the most efficient and effective in their mannerisms and methods of killing. Pirates, I have concurred, are highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat and are capable of using violent tactics no matter whether they are inebriated or not. In this way Pirates are highly superior.

HOWEVER:

Chuck Norris is a ninja.

Ninjas. Pirates hold less moral values. Ninjas originally fight for the Daimyos, and have more loyalty towards the daimyo than the samurai. It's also harder to be a ninja, where as a pirate you just gotta be able to blow shit up. You need to be able to kill and have social skills. Many people never got to being a ninja, instead they died on the way there. There are more traitorous Samurai than ninjas. And despite the fact that they didn't have supernatural powers, their reflexes and agility were surely above average. In a 1v1 fight, Ninjas would win, also because of their processing skills. The average ninja has better reflexes than the average pirate. also ninjas are more adaptable. The pirates life consists of mostly sea voyages and ports. Ninjas were scouts and assassins. They have to be able to adapt to new surroundings. In a 1v1 fight ninjas are built to know the surroundings and be able to use them to win a fight. Also they do fight more elegantly. Their minds are more capable than pirates. A pirates mind must be wit, street smarts and etc, where as the things Ninjas would know are the things more acceptable in today's average society.

Myth: Pirates are better than ninjas

This long-raging Internet debate is just silly – there is no doubt at all that ninjas are far better and pirates just utterly suck in comparison. There has never been a recorded case of a pirate beating a ninja. Pirates have a cutlass and hook hand but little else to fight with – plus lots of lace and fancy clothes; whereas a ninja has a whole slew of weapons and light-weight clothes which give him an advantage before they even begin. Furthermore, if the pirate looks like he might be winning – the ninja can just jump off the ship and run on water to the nearest island.

ninjas are awesome and stealthy people that have been trained to go on secret missions and etc. pirates on the other hand are rude outgoing mischief loud and obnoxious. pirates are like the complete opposite of ninjas in ways and to be more descriptive where would they be fighting on a ship or on land in dense trees open planes. it depends on where they are put at and in what kind of situation. in my opinion it is a toss up depending on where the setting of the place is at. i could go for ninjas or pirates so its up to you guys to decide on this debate

Ninja's are way better than pirates. 1. Ninja's are better at killing and can fight on any turf but pirates fight mainly on ships 2. Pirates are sneaky but don't have the skills a ninja does. 3. Ninja's have better weapons while pirates have damaged swords and hooks 4. NINJAS BEAT PIRATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5. Pirates show off and die too much.

a pirate has a better chance of killing a gorilla 10 times their size than killing a ninja.

I think that ninjas are better because they can blend in with their surroundings, are very swift, like wind, (unlike pirates), and they use awesome weapons and old Chinese cultural blades. Plus, I don't think Teenage Mutant Pirate Turtles is a show.

Most ninjas do what is right and help protect those who cannot protect themselves. The also have more skill in fighting with or without weapons. Ninjas are a big part of Japanese culture but pirates are not a part of any major culture.

Well I love them both but when I saw best warrior (Its a show by the way) and they are huge experts they know who wins and who doesnt lets look at thier stats:

Ninja:sword,sleepy blow darts,ninja stars, hiding skills,super fast,knows kung fu,stealthy

Pirate:guns,swords,ship,a crew,and bombs

So ninja wins!!!!!
