Thread: Gaming Greatest Ninjas

  1. #1

    Gaming Greatest Ninjas



    Since Day of the Ninja is coming up in two weeks, I figure we could spend some of that time to figure out who are the best overall ninjas in gaming.

    I'd figure that we could first make a list of candidates and then from that list make an elite pool whom then an open poll can be held to figure out the best of the best. Any ninja can be nominated provided that they are not from a licensed property. You may bring up multiple names if you wish.

    I say we try to knock the pool down to 16 and have a tournament vote after that.

    Make sure you mention the game of origin and why that ninja is so awesome. Go!

    Grey Fox/Cyborg Ninja from Metal Gear Solid.

    Awesome because he was also insane, which isn't something we see enough in ninjas these days.

    I nominate Goemon and Bang Shishigami because they both have fucking kickass theme songs.

    Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden

    Because who else can defeat gigantic undead dinosaurs and massive demons with perfect finesse?

    I'm glad Goemon made it, you have just earned 800 internetz.

    I vote Shadow, from Final Fantasy 6. And his dog, whatever his name was.

    Interceptor, which is a fucking awesome name for a dog.

    Just for kicks I nominate Ninja Mono, from Audiosurf.

    I also nominate ebisumaru, and if you don't understand why then clearly you just cannot understand the beauty in... him!

    Or I would... but then I'd have to choose between him and goemon.

    Kotaru Fuma cracks me up.

    But yeah, Goemon ftw. He's got a motherfuckin giant robot.

    Raven from Tekken. That's as far as my gaming ninja knowledge went.

    The obvious answers are Ryu Hyabusa and Joe Musashi.

    I'd vote Joe #1 in terms of kickass theme song.

    Also, Grey Fox (#1 for most badass death)
    Ayane and Momiji
    Clyde/Shadow
    Scorpion (Sub-Zero is not a Ninja)
    The TMNT (including Venus <3)
    Psylocke

    My personal favorite:



    Dr. McNinja

    Also, the IRL greatest Ninja of all time:

    Goemon, because he's awesome and Vega, because he's Spanish and I like to fight as him.

    I beg to differ.

    Also, Taki.





    #1 sluttiest-dressing Ninja. Although Ivy is even moreso, but she's not a Ninja.

    Hooray for body paint!

    Dr. McNinja is badass. Sadly does not star in a video game, which I believe prevents him from being nominated.

    Is it mentioned in the games that Mai Shiranui & Vega are ninjas?

    As for me, Good Ninjas : Ryu Hayabusa or Goemon ( watched the movie version a week ago with no subtitle but still fucking awesome )

    Bad Ninjas : Shredder or Sub-Zero
