The Ninja tag is used to describe games that involve or revolve around the concept of ninjas. In popular culture, ninjas are often depicted as highly skilled and stealthy warriors from ancient Japan. They are known for their expertise in espionage, assassination, and combat.

In games tagged as "Ninja," players typically assume the role of a ninja character and engage in various missions or quests that require stealth, precision, and combat abilities. These games often feature a combination of action, adventure, and sometimes even platforming elements.

Some common characteristics of ninja-themed games include:

  • Stealth Gameplay As mentioned earlier, one key aspect of ninjas is their ability to move silently and go unnoticed. Many ninja games emphasize stealth mechanics where players must avoid detection by enemies through sneaking around or using disguises.
  • Combat Skills Ninjas are renowned for their mastery in martial arts and weaponry. Therefore, many games with the "Ninja" tag include intense combat sequences where players can utilize a variety of traditional weapons like swords, shurikens (throwing stars), or grappling hooks to defeat adversaries.
  • Acrobatics and Mobility Ninjas are often depicted as agile warriors capable of performing impressive acrobatic maneuvers like wall-running or double jumps. Games under the "Ninja" tag may incorporate these elements to enhance movement mechanics.
  • Honor Code Many narratives surrounding ninjas explore themes such as loyalty, honor codes, or conflicts between duty and personal beliefs. Some ninja-themed games delve into these aspects by integrating choices or branching storylines that reflect these moral dilemmas.

Examples of popular titles within the Ninja genre include:

  • Tenchu: Stealth Assassins This classic PlayStation game series focuses on stealthy assassinations as players control a ninja character, utilizing various tactics and tools to accomplish their objectives.
  • Mark of the Ninja A platformer that emphasizes stealth gameplay, Mark of the Ninja challenges players to navigate through environments unnoticed by enemies while executing precise kills using silent techniques.
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice From the creator of the Dark Souls series, Sekiro combines challenging combat with a captivating storyline set in feudal Japan. Players take on the role of a shinobi as they engage in intense battles against formidable foes.
