{{Ninja}}s are [[RuleOfCool cool]]. It's a simple, straightforward fact that, unless you are a {{pirate}}, seems to be universally recognized. They're also very, very Japanese. However, just as [=McDonald's=] came out of the United States and conquered the world, so the ninja have set up local branches all over the globe.

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts: From the New World'', one of your party members is a Brazilian ninja, who hails from a hidden ninja village deep in the Amazon rain forest. Brazilian-style ninjutsu apparently centers on turning any vaguely elongated object into a sword by sticking a hilt on it. This party member is also a HighlyVisibleNinja, considering his bright red-blue costume(with a glowing deely-bopper antennae on the headpiece), and his habit of trying to hide... by holding up an American flag in front of himself. Did we mention he also works for the CIA?

** 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.
