  • The samurai would, pirates were undisciplined, samurai were relentlessly trained and disciplined, they were better swordsmen, better marksman, and better warriors.

    Also if you bring up the argument that pirates have guns, well so did the samurai actually once firearms were introduced into Japan the samurai started using them along side their own traditional weaponry, these firearms and projectile weapons included revolvers, bolt action rifles, Gatling guns and cannons they used these along side their Katana which in close quarters where superior blades, bows and arrows which they could fire faster then firearms and were able to shoot on horseback they were so accurate with them that they could shoot a man between the eyes. They also used Naginata sword/spears which could be used like a sword or spear, and they also used clubs which were capable of shattering shields.

    • "Also if you bring up the argument that pirates have guns"
      The problem with that argument is this fight is most DEFINITELY ON A SHIP.
      and since Japan was completely isolated by the time of the golden age of humanity so their tech was limited to matchlock muskets that wouldn't fare well on a ship.
      The pirate would just put a twelve inch hole into a charging samurai and be done

    • And why would the Japanese set foot on a pirate ship? when they had their own ironclad ships that were armored with iron and steel, and had cannons and muskets on them?

    • Except these aren't small ships lol we're like fortresses.

  • Pirates were not a uniform bunch. Samurais were. Mostly. A samurai had harsh mental and physical training as well as durable and efficient equipment. A pirate was just a bandit at sea. Not all of them were ruthless fighters. Some of them were your average blokes with swords in hands and some experience at sailing, but that's about it.

  • Does the pirate have a gun? Pirates fights in a manner that disregards honour, he could literally walk backwards towards the samurai, and kill him like that, because it's cowardly/dishonourable to attack someone from behind.

    • @Phoenix98 Not drugs no, but they'd chew on chili, as it was believed to numb pain.

    • hmm interesting.

  • The guns win the argument for me

  • Samurai hands down. Expert with every weapon of choice, all of which is kept on hand. Some late samurai even used guns. Best case scenario a pirate could hope to hit the samurai when he's not looking and shoot him in the back. But direct combat would lead to the pirates demise... Unless that pirate is jack sparrow. That lucky bastard is wiley.

  • Pirate.
    I'll use a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean as my argumet.
    So there they are inside the blacksmiths shop. Jack Sparrow fighting will turner.

    Will is stronger than Jack though, so Jack decides to do something. He throws sand on Will's face, and as Will removes it, Jack draws his gun and aims at him.
    Low knowing that he has lost the fight, Will says to Jack "you cheated."
    Jack replies "Pirate".

  • Pssht pirates have shit guns! Like these guns r so inaccurate and are best for pointing at someone like 2 feet away. Samurais r armed to the teeth and are willing to die for their country and are well trained

    • The Flintlock pistol was DESIGNED for close quarters and it would be accurate up to ten feet away. Samurai armor was merely designed to deflect arrows and wouldn't do jack against a sword.
      The flintlock pistol of the pirate would blow a gaping hole into you as the bullet it twelve inches in diameter

    • Another two handed weapon, heavy, cumbersome, already outdated when lighter swords came about.
      And OF COURSE THIS IS ON A SHIP

    • WHY WOULD IT BE ON A SHIP?

      Lol of course the pirate would win, then! Samurai's decked in armor! He would break the ship!

      But on land? Samurai's got the pirate dead.

      A two handed battle axe? If the user is strong, then it can be a very agile weapon!

    • There is no such thing as a fair fight, so if a pirate would win by a cheap shot then the pirate wins

    • yeah but if you even draw a sword around a samurai that means you are challenging them.

  • Pirates would give them European disease and win by default. Because they're pirates. And pirates > samurai, unless you're a filthy weeb.

  • A samurai would pick him off with a bow from 100 yards away.

    If it came to a melee, the samurai would cut the pirate to pieces within seconds.

  • A samurai would. He's more disciplined and stealthy. The pirate would probably be drunk, so his life expectancy would be ten seconds at best.

  • Pirates would win against European knights, who are slow, but they would lose against the Samurai, because they know martial arts, and are much faster compared to knights.
