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.  :)

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.
