Swashbuckler (SWOSH-buk-ler) noun
A daring and dashing pirate, soldier, or adventurer who is usually good with a sword, such as Robin Hood or Zorro. But in the sixteenth century, a swashbuckler was a loudmouthed swaggering bully.

  2. Is there really much of a difference? Excepting for good sword fighting abilities a pirate isn't much different than a bully! It seems to me to be the same just with a few exceptions! Haha
