** There's also the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bujinkan Bujinkan]] system which teaches unarmed and armed combat techniques from Ninjutsu while omitting the stealth and infiltration training. One of the more prominent teachers of the school, Stephen K. Hayes, since removed from the rolls, is famous for having released a number of "how to" books on Ninjutsu.

*** While "ninjutsu" is not in itself a specific martial art (and for that matter, neither is Karate), there were several styles that ninja tended to use, referred to as "Ninpo", which include guerilla warfare and espionage training alongside combat techniques. These included such styles as Iga-ryu and Togakure-ryu (the latter of which being what Bujinkan is believed to descend from) which are martial arts themselves.

* In the ''Film/SpeedRacer'' live action movie, a ninja appears and attacks the Racer family... but he commits the sheer mistake of going against [[ActionDad Pops]] [[PapaWolf Racer]]. Cue an hilariously awesome CurbStompBattle - with the ''ninja'' at the receiving end!
-->'''Trixie''': Was that a ninja?!\\
'''Pops''': More like a ''non''ja. Terrible what passes for a ninja these days.

* The very obscure ''VideoGame/ReturnOfTheNinja'' is a SpiritualSuccessor of Tenchu in GameBoyColor, having you sneak through stages to avoid the next screen being filled with mobs and losing rank points for being detected. A ShoutOut it makes to Tenchu comes in the cards you receive after completing the stages or trading with a friend, where some cards makes visual reference to tools you use in Tenchu.

* Though they're technically not ninjas ''per se'', the armor for the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' certainly looks the part. The Brotherhood's signature skills also mesh fairly well with the assassin part of the trope.
