Jolly Roger

The Jolly Roger, the original sign of a typical pirate ship's flag.

And those buccaneers drown their sins in rum. The Devil himself would have to call them scum! Every man on board would've killed his weight for a bag of ginny's or a piece of eight!
~ Lyrics to "Shiver My Timbers" from Muppet Treasure Island.

Pirates can come in many different styles and ways with acts such as plundering, murdering, stealing, piracy, kidnapping or breaking laws usually for financial purposes.

Some Pirates can be leaders of a "crew" of other people that see everything the same ways they do but may ultimately get betrayed or "mutinied" against by their Plunder-Buddies.

Military Villains associated with naval warfare can go under this category.

Since piracy, as it was practiced in classical times is often romanticized in fiction many works feature Good Pirates as well as evil ones.
