* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has the Sheikah; an ancient, technologically advanced ninja clan dedicated to protecting the goddess Hylia and her descendents who would later became the Hylian royal family. They were skilled in both magic and hand-to-hand combat, while also using weapons such as kodachi, [[StockNinjaWeaponry naginatas, kunai,]] and [[SmokeOut Deku Nut smoke bombs]]. Most of them were assumed to have died out during the Hylian Civil War (or even earlier) other than a few notable examples such as Impa and Sheik (who was Zelda in disguise) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', but by ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' they finally make a comeback although they choose to live live normal lives at this point.

* Almost everybody in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. [[HighlyVisibleNinja Not remotely stealthy about it]], either, though they ''are'' pretty tricky with things like duplication, illusions, and replacing yourself with '''''[[NarutoTheAbridgedSeries A LOG]]'''''.

* Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow (among many others, some of whom [[DorkAge we do not speak about]]) from ''GIJoe''. The unnamed "narrator" of the ''Order of Battle'' series and the action figures File Cards (actually Card and comic series writer LarryHama, writing in-universe observations about the characters) said "The great Ninja assassin clans disappeared a hundred years ago. If they were wiped out, nobody took the credit for it and if they're still around, ''who are they working for?''"
* Also from LarryHama was ''ComicBook/NthManTheUltimateNinja'', featuring a white-haired modern-day ninja named John Doe, tasked with killing his childhood friend and RealityWarper in the midst of WorldWarIII.

The "classic" black ninja costume is, in fact, the outfit worn by stagehands in traditional Japanese theatre. Japanese stagehands are frequently in full view on the stage, but the audience was trained to ignore them and thus are considered "invisible" by the audience. It became the practice to hide ninja characters in full sight by putting them in the same outfits as the stagehands, [[PaintingTheMedium for a startling effect when characters were suddenly attacked by "thin air"]]. The stereotypical black "ninja outfit" would be actually horribly conspicuous, even at night. For night stealth, real ninjas wore dark blue outfits; someone dressed in solid black will stand out like a silhouette. Usually, though, ninjas simply dressed like ordinary people (peasants, monks, merchants, scholars, etc). That way, they can move about unnoticed, day or night. Even the split or toe-divided boots which are a trademark of the ninja costume are actually an AnachronismStew: toe-divided shoes or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jika-tabi ''jika-tabi'']] were actually invented in the 20th century, and only some modern ninjutsu schools would adopt them for practicality reasons.
