Pirates of the Caribbean. Nasty, unclean and ugly people 😣
Pirates are very real to any ships in the vicinity of the Horn of Africa.
But, since ninjitsu is now an accepted sport, ninjas are also very real -- though not in the way they're depicted in the movies.
On the other hand, a young German medical student, attacked by muggers at Kingswood (in western Sydney) in 2010 was grateful that the thugs chose the area outside a dojo to attack him. Out poured a group of ninjas and what happened then was the stuff of fairytales.
If you have seen the Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips, you would know it is pirates.
Ninjas are real ... Cos Corey said so ... BAM !
