Perhaps the figure whose very name is affiliated with the word '{{ninja}}', Sarutobi Sasuke was a character featured in children's tales beginning in the early 1900s.

He is generally believed to be a fictional creation of the Meiji era based on the historical ninja Kozuki Sasuke, though some argue for his actual existence. He is commonly listed as one of the Sanada Ten Braves, a legendary group of ten ninja that supposedly assisted Sanada Nobushige (more widely known as SanadaYukimura) at the battles of Osaka Castle during the Sengoku Period, and he is one of the best known amongst the Ten Braves. Since then, he has been featured in many anime and manga series, and various fictional ninja have been named after him.

Sarutobi means "jumping monkey" -- Sasuke is frequently described as being very quick and agile, especially in trees, and in some versions of his story is described as having been [[RaisedByWolves raised by wild monkeys]].

Compare YagyuJubei, HattoriHanzo, UsefulNotes/FuumaKotaro, OdaNobunaga and MiyamotoMusashi.
