Jolly Roger
It's how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good, and I see us as members of a noble brotherhood.
~ Long John Silver: Muppet Treasure Island.
In fiction, piracy is often romanticized with "good pirates". These Pirates are vigilantes who fight evil pirates for their buried treasure mostly, but can rescue certain unexpected lives as well. They can also be runaways from oppressive governments who resort to piracy simply to survive.
