klopcic says:


Pasta John says:

Ye scurvy bilge rat ninja hath no heart like that of a true gentleman o' fortune! Whilst stealth and speed may hold fast with the ninja, ye 'ol pirates be knowin' the way to Davy Jones' locker!!

Power-ten-fold says:

I wonder if ninjas get wedgies . They must in those silly black pajamas. And can you picture them somewhere hot and sunny? Like the Caribbean where pirates frequent? Not to mention, pirates know how to navigate squalls and killer waves. Adding in technological advantages like pistols and cannons, ninjas just don't make the grade.

Satircon says:

Keelhaul, those filthy landlubbers,
send them down to the depths below
Make those bastard walk the plank
with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho!

vauldine says:

Pirates I think

umm says:


youareapirate says:

Pirates all the way

coolness says:


duh says:

Sep, u know, that maks ninjas look BAD not good. So this is ninja fans at work. Pirates. way better.

uhhuh says:


Zhartox says:

Like I said, Pirates win over ninjas by a landslide! Why argue? Seriously, pirates are WAY better. Ninjas can only go on land, but pirates can go on both. Ninjas have to have secrets about their entire existence. But PIRATES on the other hand are known far and wide and their not afraid to show they're a pirate. Ninjas have to do stances before they fight. Seriously? "I'm gonna do..... FLYING CRANE ATTACK!"! Yah, now your opponent TOTALLY doesn't know what your going to do.... NOT! Pirates of the Caribbean is known WORLDWIDE, not Ninjas of the Mediterranean. A wonderful example is One piece vs. Naruto. Pirates win physically in battle AND when it comes to whose cooler. Sure I used to like TMNT as a kid, but Pirates are where it's at. Ninjas are some assassins who run around in the dark in black, overrated jumsiut/pajamas. Pirates dress way cooler. Pirates win. PERIOD.

grumpy says:

................................................................................... Well, it's in the vote for pirates section, so I'm obviously voting for Pirates!

thats the way it is says:


blig says:


energetic says:

pirates. win. so stop debating.

energetic says:



PIRATES!!!!!!!!! says:


PIRATES!!!!!!!!! says:

People! Still at it?! It's SO obvious! PIRATES! Hey I have a friend who thinks ninjas are better. I asked him why, and he said, " Cuz' they have shuriken. That's all." Shuriken?! They only use those for distractions!!!!! Another friend ( for pirates ) and she says, "Cuz' Pirates have guns and swords, they're really brave, super loyal to their captain, they fight like crazy, have awesome ships and flags, sing shanties and do the jig." Pirates.WIN.

GoPirates! says:

Pirates! Pirates! Pirates! Pirates!

GoPirates! says:

Pirates win, hooks down.

Ninjas win!

CStacks says:

Ninjas would win on land, but at sea the pirate has the advantage. Ninjas need stealth to be really effective. Pirates just need rum and a sea shanty and they are good to go.

Rationalist says:

Pirates r awesome, chic n all dose stuff...so in terms of popularity, pirates may win...
But when it comes to da battle field...a silent xpert assassin trained in mystical ways from birth vs. a drunk with a blunderbuss who sailed for a living...
U decide.

Don Nixon says:

Pirates suck! :D

Dee Dee says:

The Shinobi will prevail due to cunning, superior tactical abilities and pragmatic mentality. Not to mention a healthy dose of ruthless efficiency.

blahblah says:


dandan says:


Hiria says:

Ninjas! The Pirates wouldn't know what would've hit them! :)

Dylan Brewer just assigned Colton Richie as a Knight in Kingdoms of Camelot! says:

Dylan Brewer just assigned Colton Richie as a Knight in Kingdoms of Camelot! says:


Dylan Brewer just assigned Colton Richie as a Knight in Kingdoms of Camelot! says:

Not a retard says:

Drunks who have sailed for a living vs. assassins trained from birth to kill other human beings

uzumaki says:


uzumaki says:

Naruto and ninjas dont even have to eat "Devil fruit" to be awesome....oh wait Luffy does. Ninjas Win -.-

Byakugan says:

Luffy cant even swim -.-

Hyuga says:

NINJA'S WIN FOOL!!!! you honestly believe Luffy could take Naruto's Rasenshuriken?? Rock Lee is so fast that you have trouble seeing him when he moves!! Gaara has his sand to protect him!! NINJAS WIN!!! NINJAS WIN!!!

nikitakapoor says:

Pirates can be killed or captured!
Ninjas cannt be killed or captured! How can can you kill or capture something that you can't see! So ninja should win!

nikitakapoor says:

Pirate's are quite cool due to there dressing and make up. Ninjas are cooler because they are invisible and no one knows what they look like!

The Nerdy Ninja says:

Pirate's are cool in movies but ninja's are cool in real life and movies, so therefore i think ninjas should have an advantage of winning.

Lenny L says:

A true ninja fan would vote for ninjas to win ^-^

Carl C says:

NiNjA's FoR tHe WiN :D

Kiramisaki says:


jmark15 says:

They are super cool

jmark15 says:

They are super cool

hey says:


ninja princess says:

ninjas would win because they can do front and back flips, there cool and really good at attracting girls.NINJAS RULE INSTEAD OF PIRATES!!!

Taylor hammond says:

Ninjas should win cause they have got more weapons than pirates and there more better at fighting!!!

<Looks like Your Mom says:

kittens win. ninja kittens always win.

jj says:

ninjas can do stuff like TRIPLE BACKFLIP AND ARE MUCH MORE FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

jon lee says:

ninjs, by frrr

Cleptroll says:

all your base belong to us

Silent Shadow says:

The only way to Davy Jones locker is to drown. Ninja's would drown a pirate. Pirates, no mater how ruthless, most likely are not murder's. A true warrior must be able to kill Instantly. Pirates aren't like that.

ellen heggie says:


lol says:

ninjas ftw

ninjascoolerthanyouwilleverbe says:

Ninjas kick the pirates drunken ass!

I am hungry says:


Also, pirates are odoriferous and ninjas are not.


it's a tie, ninjas would be way stronger when they fight on land, pirates will absoulutly win in the sea 'cause all their most powerfullest things is the ship. But humans are mostly in land so i think the ninjas will win more. I LOVE NINJAS!

Fpirates says:

Ninjas all the way! Like a true player!

ninjamaster says:


IsANinja says:

.: Ninja's All The Way :.

Casey says:

If you see a ninja then it's not a ninja. Ninjas would win 100% of the time.

Pirate Facts

Scientific facts about pirates.

  • Pirates drink rum or grog all day. These must be consumed either straight from the barrel, or a goblet large enough to be used as a weapon.
  • Are obnoxious and smelly. Hygiene is not a priority for a pirate; use of soap is uncommon. Spilling rum all over oneself is a perfect replacement for a shower.
  • A real pirate must wear either a bandana, a three-cornered hat, or an eye-patch. They might use a hook or a peg leg when needed, but these are usually reserved for captains.
  • Pirates possess big ships equipped with canons and flags of skull and bones. Make the traitors walk the plank.
  • Fight using pistols, rifles and swords. Yelling insults during a fight is mandatory.
  • Are only interested in loot and booty (both kinds). Refer to all women as "wenches".
  • None of them are rich since even if they find treasure, they loose it all in one day by gambling.
  • The decline in number of pirates is believed to have caused the global warming (see the church of Flying Spaghetti Monster).
  • The dictionary of a pirate usually includes "Arrrr!", "Avast!", and "Ahoy!". "Arrrr", for one, is a perfect answer to any question.
