** Kamui (the third boss) becomes Hanzo



* AllThereInTheManual: The third boss, a green ninja with ability to create duplicates of himself, is the only boss character unnamed in the ending cast roll. However, ''Gamest'''s coverage of the game refers to him as Kamui.



* NamedByTheAdaptation:
** The two player characters were nameless in the arcade version. On the NES, they were called Blade and Striker.
** The third boss, a green ninja with a body-splitting technique, is the only boss not named in the arcade game, although all the other ninja enemies are simply referred to as such, but with a moniker identifying their attack patterns (e.g. ''zako ninja'' for the unarmed blue ninja {{mook}}s, ''nage ninja'' for the shuriken throwing ninja, ''buki ninja'' for the armed ninjas). On the Famicom version's manual, he is referred to as Hanzo.

A side-scrolling BeatEmUp by Creator/DataEast for the UsefulNotes/{{arcade|Game}}s and ported to the NintendoEntertainmentSystem. The plot, [[ExcusePlot such as it is]], goes as follows: There are rampant ninja-related crimes these days, and the White House is no exception. A guy who [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger looks like he could be]] VideoGame/DukeNukem's uncle informs you that the President has been kidnapped by {{ninja}}s, and asks you if you are a bad enough dude to rescue the President. The correct answer is to [[ConservationOfNinjutsu beat up an army of ninja]], while shouting "I'M BAD!!!", and repeat until the President is rescued. Said President thanks you for your troubles, and suggests burgers for lunch.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu

to:

* ConservationOfNinjutsuCollisionDamage: Most of the mook ninjas don't bother to attack the player but instead just run through him to do damage.



* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Multiple mook ninjas? No problem. One boss ninja? Bigger problem.



* FightingWithChucks
* FingerlessGloves

to:

* FightingWithChucks
FightingWithChucks: One of the weapon pickups is a set of nunchucks. It's the best weapon with the longest reach and does double damage compared to the normal punch.
* FingerlessGlovesFingerlessGloves: Part of the tough-as-nails 80's hero aesthetic.



* HighlyVisibleNinja
* HurricaneKick

to:

* HighlyVisibleNinja
HighlyVisibleNinja: Blue ninjas, grey ninjas, red ninjas, green ninjas, ''on fire ninjas''.
* HurricaneKickHurricaneKick: Pressing jump and attack simultaneously executes this. It makes the player more vulnerable to CollisionDamage, unfortunately.
