Released for the short-lived AtariJaguar, and previous-released claimed the be the "''Mortal Kombat Killer''", ''Kasumi Ninja'' could not live to those standards. As a matter of fact, it was blasted by critics.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Angus, the first fighting Scotsman.
* ExcusePlot: There's some semblance of a plot in the attract mode and ending, with a secret island meant to train ninja, dark gods taking over, and a prophecy to help the player find a way to beat the BigBad. Not like anyone's plot actually bothers with this.



* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: There's not much of an explanation as to where the heck the endboss, a PaletteSwap ninja who appears to be the Akuma to the other two ninjas' Ryu and Ken, came from. [[spoiler:There is even less explanation as to how he transformed into a silly Kaiju monster]].

* {{Ninja}}: Just like ''Mortal Kombat'', we have a few of these as well with differently colored clothes.

The plot of this game is, in a word, nonexistent. The only information the game gives is that the game takes place on Kasumi Island. In fact, part of the blame for this game's failure lies in the rushed production schedule the developers imposed upon themselves. This need to get the game done as fast as possible led to nigh everything not related to the gameplay or unlocking characters getting excised.

Today, the game is [[MemeticMutation notorious on the Internet]] for one character in particular: Angus, the [[UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} Scotsman]] who shoots fireballs out from under his kilt.

!!''Kasumi Ninja'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: The announcer.
* CaptainErsatz: Notably, the two starting characters are clearly supposed to be Scorpion and Sub-Zero, [[PaletteSwap right down to the color schemes and rivalry.]]
* CaptainEthnic: You thought [[Franchise/MortalKombat Nightwolf]] was stereotypical? Take a look at Pakawa (who even does the "HEYA-HOYA-HEYA-HOYA" dance when he wins and scalps his victims for his fatality.) A few others fall under this, too, like Angus.
* FinishingMove: [[FollowTheLeader One fighting game that tried to cash in on the gore out of many.]]
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: There's not much of an explanation as to where the heck the endboss, a PaletteSwap ninja who appears to be the Akuma to the other two ninjas' Ryu and Ken, came from. [[spoiler:There is even less explanation as to how he transformed into a silly Kaiju monster]].
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Alaric was probably [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaric_I King Alaric I, leader of the Visigoths]].
* MagicalNativeAmerican: Pakawa
* {{Ninja}}: Just like ''Mortal Kombat'', we have a few of these as well with differently colored clothes.
