Working Title: Ridiculous Stealth: From YKTTW

arromdee: This seems like Highly-Visible Ninja to me. This trope claims that the difference is that the ninjas are simply so good that their color doesn't matter, and they don't do stupid non-stealthy things like fight in groups of 20. But if you look at the examples in Highly-Visible Ninja, they include a lot of examples who are simply brightly colored ninjas and don't do anything stupid either. Highly-Visible Ninja even includes two examples, Naruto and Power Rangers, that are also listed here--if this was really a separate trope you'd never see the same character in both places.

I'd say merge this with Highly-Visible Ninja.

Indigo: The discussion before launch supported this being a separate trope. The Power Rangers one is not true across the board. Some Rangers are Highly-Visible Ninja [such as the ones who end up with crowds and supporters cheering them on], some are Technicolor Ninjas [who don't have that]. So it's plausible for the same show to have examples of both.
