Color-Coded Guide to Ninjas

The new issue of Dragon (348) has a short article in it devoted to the Mountain Ghosts, AKA dwarven ninjas. I wrote it because, frankly, dwarves are my favorite thing and ninjas are irishninja's favorite thing, and one day I just realized how the two might work together.

In my research, I also discovered this guide to ninja garb and its meaning in the Sekrit Ninja Heirarchy.

Black Ninja: Your standard ninja of film and fantasy, striking from the shadows. Primarily nocturnal (like this post), and really sort of an underachiever. The minion level of ninja aptitude.

White Ninja: The daylight ninja, skillful enough to be stealthy in all white pants and ski mask, even after Labor Day. You can see a white ninja coming at high noon. Or you might not. Trickier than they seem.

Red Ninja: Doesn't give a good goddamn whether you see him coming. The red ninja is always a level boss with fire shuriken or some damn trick up his sleeve. He is not afraid of you and he will beat your ass.

Neon Pink Ninja: Exists only in Flaming Lips videos, banned forms of epilepsy-inducing anime, and certain trashy disco parties. Mostly harmless.

Pink ninjas--harmless, but FABULOUS! ;)

You forgot the Plaid Ninjas of the Highlands--noted for heavy drinking, ability to sneak about while clad in 9 yards of kilted wool, and their failure to back up Bonnie Prince Charlie when he needed them most.

So when'll you tell us about Chartreuse Ninjas, Maroon Ninjas, and the dreaded Seersucker Ninjas?

Thanks for the chuckle this a.m., pal. Good luck with the website; maybe I'll finally get some content on mine soon, as I've had the sites at godaddy.com for a while....

Nonsense. I have strong evidence that the red ninjas are the hardest to find.

Compelling evidence.

There's also this ninja sighting, from the finest of news sources.

This post and the comments have me numb with euphoric joy.

Thank you for starting off my day in a ninjatastic way.

I figured the pirates had their day, and it was time to go all ninja on a Friday.

What about the much-conflicted Gandhi ninjas? They kill, and then they feel really badly afterwards.

If you haven't seen it yet:


Question 18, "Minjas," is especially topical.
