*** Deathstroke, while looking very ninja-like, really isn't a ninja at all, getting all his training from the US Army, combat in Vietnam, and his powers from a [[SuperSoldier serum]] designed to enhance his abilities.

*** His villainous [[ComicBook/SpiderGwen Earth-65]] counterpart goes a step farther as he was actually raised by the Hand after they killed his previous mentor, Stick.

** Redway, a villainous NPC from the later quests in the Rogue/Ninja storyline, is a darker take on the trope than most, as he was constantly overlooked by his master for his lack of Doman blood and went bad largely due to favoritism being shown to his fellow (Doman) students.

* The setting of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' is a country called Eorzea. The art of ninjitsu comes from the foreign nation of Doma, so the PlayerCharacter by default becomes a McNinja if they chose to become the Ninja Job.

*From Tekken 5 onward we have the Ninja Raven. His style is listed a s Ninjitsu, but hes a black guy with blonde hair. He evin does the Kuji-in, carries Kunai and has a friendly rivalry with Tekken's other "ninja" Yoshimitsu. Many players have noteded that Raven is like a mix of Blade and Simon Pheonix from Demolitionman, two roles played by Wesley Snipes. "When Namco was asked about the similarities being intentional, they stated that they simply wanted a true ninjutsu practitioner and a "cool black guy" for a character, and that the similarities were purely coincidental."
and soon he will be replaced with a black woman ninja known as Master Raven in Tekken 7.

** The Raioh and its MidSeasonUpgrade Dairaioh, are HumongousMecha ninja with heavy ''Franchise/KamenRider'' elements; when they made the transition from the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha]]'' games to ''Original Generation'', the ninja elements were emphasized much more than the ''Kamen Rider'' elements. ''OG'' also introduced a mass-produced version of the Raioh, dubbed the Jinrai, which is much more distinctly ninja-styled thanks to its sword and FuumaShuriken.

* The ''{{Talislanta}}'' game features Mandalan Mystic Warriors and Mondre Khan Raiders in the Kang Empire, which is more Chinese than Japanese in flavor. The Rajan Assassin-Mage is apparently supposed to evoke the historical ''hashishin'', yet carries a strong whiff of McNinja as well.

* The original [[http://www.ninjaburger.com website]] for ''NinjaBurger'' is dedicated to this trope- also quite [[BurgerFool literally]].
* ''AskANinja'' doesn't quite count as this, but his theme song does.

* For that matter, there are other characters that qualify in comics, far too many to list, but some include ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}, [[TheDCU Ravager,]] ComicBook/{{Elektra}}, ComicBook/{{Psylocke}}, etc.

* The public library in ''JacobTwoTwo'' has a squad of highly-trained "Library Ninja" specialized in recovering overdue books.
* Snake-Eyes from ''GIJoe'' a blond-haired blue-eyed white American who trained in Japan under the same master as Storm Shadow (who is a full blooded Japanese), although his backstory was not given as much emphasis in the cartoons as it was in the comics.
** And by "not as much emphasis" we mean "none at all", at least in the Sunbow episodes. It didn't help that following the [[FiveEpisodePilot first two miniseries]], the cartoon's writers had a hard time using a [[TheFaceless fully-masked]] [[TheVoiceless mute]] ninja commando, so they put him in the background. The DiC seasons featured Snake-Eyes more, and he's been a core character in ''[[GIJoeSigma6 Sigma 6]]'' and ''[[GIJoeRenegades Renegades]]''.
