* DressedLikeADominatrix: One of the Ancient Greater Fiends, Ishtaros, is a powerful evil goddess. She wears black thigh-high high-heeled boots, some weird leather straps on her arms, and that's pretty much it. One of her arms sports FemmeFatalons, the other one is a tentacle she uses like a whip.

** Rachel too uses this aesthetic. Her combat suit is made of black leather, and consists of thigh-high boots, gloves of varying length, and a leotard which exposes her cleavage and lower midriff.

* AllThereInTheManual: Ryu doesn't learn Irene's real name until the very end of the first game. However, the manual already spoils this fact.

Ryu doesn't learn Irene's real name until the very end of the first game. However, the manual already spoils this fact. However, the original Japanese manual made her name a complete mystery.

* {{Cutscene}}: One of the first games, if not, [[TropeMaker the first game to incorporate these]] in between levels to tell a cohesive story.

** In your arsenal, the Inazuma Drop for any non-boss humanoid enemy. The only caveat is that you have to actually pull it off.

* LivingStatue: In ''Sigma 2'' you fight a giant Buddha statue as a WarmUpBoss; a few chapters later, ''the freaking UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty''.

* UnexplainedRecovery: Ryu's adventures in New York end with an animated Statue of Liberty using up its last moments of movement and first moments of freedom extending its hand to helt him escape before sinking into the sea. Rachel's chapter in ''Sigma 2'' sees said statue right back where it should be as the sun rises.

** "Dando the Cursed" in ''The Dark Sword of Chaos'' is supposed to "The Damned One".

** "Dando the Cursed" in ''The Dark Sword of Chaos'' is supposed to "The Damned One". This one is more forgivable, being an actual swear.

In 2008, ''Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword'' was released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS. This GaidenGame sequel set six months after ''Ninja Gaiden'' tells of Ryu and his journey to save his apprentice, Momiji, and find the Dark Dragonstones that can resurrect an ancient Dark Dragon. In the same year, the true sequel ''Ninja Gaiden II'' was released for the Microsoft UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, where another ArtifactOfDoom the Dragon Lineage were guarding, the Statue of the Archfiend, is stolen. Ryu must travel the world chasing the Four Greater Fiends as they attempt to resurrect the [[SealedEvilInACan Archfiend itself]]. Both games retain the difficulty of ''Ninja Gaiden'' (''Ninja Gaiden II'' arguably even harder) and the stories are serviceable, yet the latter's almost completely nonsensical, with EverythingTryingToKillYou more aptly applied. For example, at one point a giant armadillo with marginal fire ElementalPowers appears with [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere no apparent connection to the villains]].

* SpyCatsuit: The XBox ''Ninja Gaiden'' gave one sleeve-less ninja version to Ryu (coupled with a ScarfOfAsskicking and a CoolMask to boot), and it's been his default costume both in his own series and the ''Videogame/DeadOrAlive'' series ever since.

* ForMassiveDamage: In ''II/Sigma 2'', the Tonfa's Ultimate Technique is ''devastating'', more than those of any other weapon. Even the extremely resilient Underworld clawed ninjas of ''Sigma 2'' Master Ninja Mode fall apart instantly with only a half-charged Ultimat. It's surprising since apart from that, the Tonfa is arguably the weakest weapon in Ryu's arsenal. Back in the Xbox ''Ninja Gaiden'', there was the [[DesperationAttack Unlabored Flawlessness on low health]], capable of near [[OneHitKill one-combo kills]] on the weaker bosses ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIBguVheGyw see for yourself]]).
