Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Vikings= Rape, pillage, plunder

Pirates= renegade slave raiders/traders

Ninjas= rouge mercenaries

Hmmm.. Which is best seems like a mercilessly insensitive question.

Just so I can make a more informed vote- the rouge of the ninja mercenaries, is that as in "Red" or as in the cosmetic?

In terms of pure combat skills I think ninja training was probably superior.

vikings, at any time.  Smiley

If we just ignore the fact that they were pagans, murderes and occasionally practised human sacrifice, they were awesome. Besides, we ruled over England(for some time)

So I take it you don't have an opinion on Waffen-SS vs Viet Cong vs Assyrian?


OP - If the pirate could stay sober my money would be that the firelocks would give him an edge.

This vote is really too simple- which out of the three can be combined with all the following?

Teenage.

Mutant.

Turtle.

The Norse climate is obviously too cold for turtles.

Pirates come close- while not a teenager, nor a turtle, the ever loving blue-eyed Thing had a short stint as Blackbeard.

On a side note, the Chinese word for "Viking" simply means "North European pirate."

As much as I love my Viking ancestors...Ninjas win. Vikings nor Pirates could touch a Ninja.
