International Ninja Day: Celebrating the Best Video Game Ninjas

Dec. 5 is International Ninja Day, and ninjas have been a staple of gaming ever since the ’80s. It is easy to understand why as these mercenaries specialized in espionage and surprise attacks in feudal Japan, and had a whole host of cool weapons and accessories to aid them in their missions. It’s only natural that they would star in games just like they have in action flicks. Some of the best action, fighting, and stealth titles have starred ninjas over the years. To celebrate this fun holiday, Mandatory took a look at the 10 best video game ninjas.
