    if the pirate could you know, hit the ninja with the cannon. Generally speaking unless there's a very large target a cannon is relatively useless. Hell, it would actually be more of a liability to the person using it.

    TIM!!!...very good play on words...as for I.R. ninjas aren't lightning fast like on tv they were trrained to specificly kill samurai...that's about it I think....anyway some cannonballs explode so it'd be easy to hit the ninjas

    1. Ninja were trained for a variety of purposes ranging from silent infiltration to extremely effective killing tactics to use of poison, something that would come in very handy if your enemy's water supply was stagnant the way pirate water would be. Killing heavily armored samurai was one aspect of the life of a ninja but there was so much more to what they did and how they operated that you've proven your total ignorance on the subject right there.

    2. Some cannonballs exploded, however usually that effect in movies comes from the dirt that's thrown aside from a 10 pound ball being hurtled through the air at a high speed. And no, it wouldn't a cannon is a very slow unweildy weapon. If you're trying to hit a human sized target that is trying to stay out of your barrel it's nearly impossible to hit it with cannon fire. Unless the ninja are hiding out in a castle, charging with a huge number of forces, or on a different boat the pirate's cannon would be largely useless.

    it takes quite a while to load a canon, I.R. is right.

    you have to load the gun powder, compact it, put the ball in then fire. You don't have to be lightning fast to dodge that.

    if you read the book Shogun: A History of Japan (recommend it ^^), although the main character was not a pirate, he might as well have been, and he didn't stand a chance against the ninja

    Also, it generally takes a crew of about three people to load and operate a cannon with any kind of efficiency, so that would also hurt it's viability in a battle like this.

    Why were lumberjacks in the same category?

    Everyone knows lumberjacks are a totally different story >.>

    And I voted the last one, because honestly, it's a pointless question

    That's true, but they're on a whole other level from Ninjas and Pirates :p

    You do you're all being used.

    By voting in this you are deciding in the supremacy of 3 guilds in dndonlinegames.com

    I don't get why they're being compared.... I like both for different reasons! Why can't we all just get along, LOL. No seriously, the two don't seem comparable to me.

    who cares lol... Pirates are cool, they have ships and fight in the seas, but I dont like sea battles that much. Ninjas are tricky, moving with the shadows, like assassins.. the art of evasion isnt my favourite either :p So anyway, as solinari wrote above me, I dont see how they can be compared to each other..

    They are compared, because dumb things are easily imitate-able.

    Examples:

    Leeroy Jenkins

    Star Wars Kid

    Numa Numa

    Banana Phone

    Jackass

    Wrestling

    Carlos Mencia

    and lets not forget: w00t, m00t, p00t, pwn'd, own'd, o'rly, teh, haX0rz, l33t, bewbs, and lawl

    :D
