Another random disscussion made by yours truly. What would you pick? A pirate or a ninja? I pick ninja because they are awesome. Here's why.

A ninja is stealth. They can go through super secure places without being noticed. But if they are noticed, they can beat up their enemies and get away quickly without weapons. They also know martial arts which help them with that. They have smoke pellets to be able to make a quick getaway. They also have weapons like swords, knives, ninja stars, grappling hooks, etc. They can also go solo.

A pirate on the other hand is not stealth. They just charge in and a lot of people know about their intrusion. They don't have any special martial arts skills. If they get noticed, they can beat up their, enemies, but only if they have weapons. They don't have smoke pellets, so there's no quick getaway. They only have old guns and canons (which are also old). They cannot go solo.

Captain Jack Sparrow.

I say Pirate only because Ninjas are a series bunch (ignore Naruto as he is not a canon ninja) while Pirates are fun-loving bastards who sail the sea causing havoc and drinking and partying late into the night :D

Well said. Also, why is all the rum gone?

Except for Jack Sparrow, give one really good reason.

But pirates don't spread the same kind of terror as they did before. People have a stronger army to stop pirates, so they're pretty much weak right now. Pirates don't exist in good movies (except for Pirates of the Caribbean) while ninjas are in a lot of movies.

I see no good reasoning here.

Pirarates of today aren't as talked about as their earlier counterparts, but they are no less cutthroat. Anyway whatever their state they still exist while ninjas do not which is the point you were trying - and failing - to contest.
On your other point that there are more ninjas in movies than pirates and pirate not existing in good movies, seriously how is this any argument as to wether one is cooler than the other. A lot of people jump to ninjas because of this oversaturation of Japanese culture and they just don't think of the awesome of Pirates before jumping on the Weeaboo bandwagon. Movies have jst been mirroring this.


My arguement:



Find a cooler song about Ninjas. It takes real skill to translate something awesome into song and then to retain that awesome.

I thought this debate ended forever ago...

Duh!

But in all seriousness, pirates are way cooler probably. :P

Wow. But techically, Tetromino is WW Princess Zelda. But OoT Princess Zelda is Shiek. But how does that prove pirates are cooler? It just proves that they are both good.

It wasn't an argument it was just a funny picture. Nobody really cares which one is better because none of them are better

Clearly everyone posting here thinks otherwise.

Pirate ninja. A pirate who just so happens to be a ninja. You don't even know they're a ninja until they sneak up behind you with a cutlass. The best of both worlds rolled into one deadly package that should totally have an appearance in the Zelda series.

"Hello Tetromino - UGH my bones..."

Also, Zeldaeinstein that pic is win.
