* HighlyVisibleNinja: How did the CIA and Jacquio's troops find Ryu so quickly after he came to America? Maybe it's because he's the only person in modern New York who runs around in broad daylight dressed like a Ninja.

* StupidSurrender: In a cutscene in the first game, Ryu surrenders to a few CIA agents who point guns at him...right after finishing a level in which he had to defeating numerous enemies, including several of them who were armed with guns.

* CutsceneIncompetence: The first game contains one of the earliest examples ever of this trope. Despite being an elite ninja, Ryu is knocked out and captured by Irene Lew in a cutscene after the first level, and only gets out of prison after she lets him out. He later gets captured by CIA agents (the second time he's captured in a span of 3 levels) and forced to work for them. Eventually he is manipulated by a HostageForMacGuffin situation in which he hands over the demon statues Jaquio to prevent him from killing Irene. Natrually, Jaquio takes the statues, doesn't release Irene, and dumps Ryu down a pit trap, forcing him to fight through long levels just to get back to Jaquio again

* PuzzleBoss: In the Boss battle against Ryu's father, trying to strike him will get you nowhere. To win the fight, you have to destroy the statue casting orbs of energy towards him. (Which isn't hard, once you catch on.)

There was also a set of licensed versions produced by Sega for their consoles in 1992. Rather than being ports of the previous Tecmo versions, Sega produced three different games that were unique to each platform. The GameGear version had the widest release of these versions, being available in North America, Europe and Japan (where it was released under the ''Ninja Gaiden'' banner instead of the usual ''Ninja Ryukenden''), while the MasterSystem version was available exclusively in Europe. The MegaDrive version, which was a beat-'em-up similar to the arcade game, was never released, but was leaked in the form of a pirated version that was still [[ObviousBeta in an unfinished state]].

Let's keep complaining (Especially if it out of nowhere like that) out of the main page, and to the YMMV page.
* NonStandardGameover: You can actually shoot Sonia dead near the end of ''Ninja Gaiden II''. [[TheScrappy The proportion of players who didn't try at least once is 0%]].

In the first game, Ryu receives a letter from his father Joe Hayabusa, saying that should he not return, Ryu is to journey to America and contact a man named Walter Smith. Believing his father dead, Ryu goes to America to carry out this request. After battling a large man with an axe in a bar, he is subdued by a woman with a tranquilizer gun. He awakens in a prison cell, where the woman (Irene Lew) frees him and gives him a mysterious, grotesque statue. Ryu is puzzled by this, but presses onward. He meets with Smith, who identifies the statue as one of the Demon Statues, a pair of [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts of Doom]] he and Joe discovered and vowed to protect. As Ryu and Smith talk, the statue is stolen by another ninja. Ryu gives chase, and recaptures the statue, but returns to find Smith dying. Ryu vows to carry on his work, protecting the Demon Statues.

Alas, while ''Ninja Gaiden III'' was successful commercially, it wasn't as much critically with players criticizing the aforementioned dumbed-down difficulty, excessively streamlined gameplay and a lack of replay value. The game had a re-release in late 2012 on the new Nintendo WiiU (January 2013 in Europe) entitled ''Razor's Edge'', with Team Ninja addressing the flaws, such as re-adding back dismemberments, brutal difficulty, fleshed out gameplay, weapon acquisitions and upgrades and additional playable characters (Momiji, Ayane and the first appearance of [[CanonImmigrant Kasumi]] from ''Videogame/DeadOrAlive''). Also, some of the most disliked cutscences were eliminated. A [=PS3/XBox360=] version was released in April 2013, including all the WiiU contents in the disc already.
