** Bloody Malth in the first NES game throws lightning fast homing projectiles that are nearly impossible to dodge, so unless you have godlike timing, the fight is more likely going to boil down to a war of attrition. Good luck with that if you make it to him without full health.

Also, that one's trivia...
* ContestedSequel: Yosuke Hayashi's drastically different vision for ''Ninja Gaiden 3'' let many fans skeptical to say the least. Some fans think it is still a fun action game in its own right, if not on par with the first two games. Others prefer to pretend it never existed. Interestingly, Hayashi was already involved in [[MetroidOtherM another]] ContestedSequel...

* IKnewIt: Due to the [[{{Expy}} breadth of shared traits]] between [[spoiler:Irene Lew from the NES trilogy and Sonia of ''NGII'']], more than a few fans theorized that [[spoiler:Sonia was a modern re-imagining of Irene and that they were the same person (Sonia's bio even hints that her name is an alias).]] Come ''VideoGame/{{Dead or Alive}}: Dimensions'', it turns out that they were right.

** The original arcade game is rife with this as well at the round clear screens of each stage. Not to mention the premise; [[ExcusePlot a seemingly random]] [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja ninja]] [[ExcusePlot that happens to be Ryu goes to America]] ("NINJA IN U.S.A.") [[ExcusePlot to beat the crap out of an evil cult]] full of hockey-mask wearing thugs, sumo wrestlers, normal wrestlers and otherwise, all led by Bladedamus, a descendant of Nostradamus.

* {{Narm}}: The ''WorldsOfPower'' book is filled with this, starting with the groaner on the first page, "Dedicated to the ninja in everyone's dad."

** 7-X in Ninja Gaiden III is by and far worse. For the entire thing, it's LONG, to the point that running out of time is not only a distinct possibility, it's borderline impossible to avoid running out of time ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjPw3YAZzr4 This]] 'Perfect Run' does the stage without dying, and closes with a mere two seconds remaining on the clock!) unless something else kills you first. While there are two lives in 7-2, the first one is difficult to get without dying in the process, and there's not a single health potion in the entire slog. Specifically, 7-1 has wind currents that impede your forward progess and can cause you to plummet to your death if you're not careful. There IS a fire wheel here, but it's the only one in all three of the substages and it's VERY easy to lose it either by dying or picking something else up by accident. 7-2, among other things, has traps that look like part of the background, and 7-3 goes completely overboard with the spikes, placing them almost everywhere in screens that would not be out of place in VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy. Sure, losing to the final boss doesn't send you back to 7-1, but the stages being JUST that obtuse and the fact that you have finite continues in this one make it a much more problematic run, though just not one you'll have to repeat if you mess something up at the boss.

** Professor Bucky-Wise's OneWingedAngel transformation in the OVA. [[BodyHorror His skin peels off and he grows a second backbone as his human features fall off]] [[{{Squick}} (and his ears and eyes can be seen falling off and ''melting'' respectively)]] as he becomes a green skinned...]] ''[[HumanoidAbomination thing]]''. The OneWingedAngel form itself is incredibly sadistic, stabbing Ryu in the arm and crunching Irene's arm when she tries to save Ryu... [[SlasherSmile and it's smiling all throughout this]].

* HilariousInHindsight: The fact that it's called Ninja Gaiden (gaiden meaning something like side story) due to RuleOfCool becomes hilarious nowadays if people think it's a sidestory to ''Videogame/DeadOrAlive'', [[OlderThanTheyThink despite the fact that Ninja Gaiden has been around for longer than DOA.]]
