'''''Supah Ninjas''''' is a {{Nickelodeon}} live-action {{ninja}}-[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin themed show]]. Mike Fukanaga's grandfather (GeorgeTakei) recently passed away, but it's not long after that Mike (Ryan Potter) and his best friend Owen (Carlos Knight) discover that he took a few secrets to the grave with him after they find an entire secret ninja dojo under Mike's bed. Now it's up to Mike, Owen, and a the LoveInterest Amanda (Gracie Dzienny) to fight off all the baddies who appear in their town. Also Mike's dead grandpa [[ProjectedMan appears via hologram]] and trains him and his friends the same way everyone else in his family trained to be ninjas, excluding Owen's father, a cop, who must not know about all the secret business going on right under his nose.

Several [[StoryArc story arcs]] tie into the plot as well, largely focusing on Mike's family's ninja background, and that not everyone uses their powers for good. However, you might find it hard to keep up with due to Nickelodeon [[ScrewedByTheNetwork never airing a single preview]].

!!This series provides examples of:

* AlphaBitch: Amanda [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] this. You'd think she would be one, given that she comes from a wealthy family, is a cheerleader, is the most popular girl in school, and has her own GirlPosse. However, she's also a straight-A student and doesn't have a mean bone in her body.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Martin Fukanaga, Mike's dad.
* AsianAndNerdy: Mike.
* AffectionateParody: Of action comedies, supervillains, and teenage superheroes.
* TheBGrade: Amanda is seen going nuts on her training in "Checkmate" because she got an A- on a biology test.
* BluffTheImpostor: Mike tries to do this to Jellyface when the latter is in the guise of his dad, but it fails because the impostor has done his homework. However, Mike already knows he's a fake, with or without the bluff. The thing that tips him off? The impostor said that Mike "would make a great cop someday." Mike's father [[OutOfCharacterAlert doesn't think Mike can be a cop.]]
* BumblingDad: Martin Fukanaga.
* CannotDream: Owen mentions it in "DJ Elephant Head", that is until DJ Elephant Head put him to sleep.
* TheChessmaster: Checkmate
* CityOfAdventure: Empire City
* ClipShow: ''Ninja Intervention''.

* ExtracurricularEnthusiast: Amanda, demonstrated in "Checkmate". When [[TheBGrade fretting about her A-]], she says that her parents will make her drop cheerleading, which will only leave her with Tennis, Debate Team, and a number of others. Mike's response: "[[SarcasmMode What will you do with all of that free time?]]"
* FakeOutMakeOut: Between Mike and Amanda in the second episode.
* FatalFlaw:
** Amanda's is that she has trouble accepting anything less than perfection for herself. She gets over this in "Checkmate", following Hologramps' advice that "The perfect ninja knows there is no such thing as perfection"
** Checkmate has one similar to the above, in that he never learned how to accept when he was beaten.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:

* KnifeNut: Katara
* {{McNinja}}: Mike's an interesting borderline case, given that he's Japanese-American and presented as being from a long line of ninja. Owen and Amanda are textbook-straight examples.

* PoliceAreUseless
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler: Quentin]]
