Quotes: Highly-Visible Ninja
Word of advice. White isn't a good color for stealth.

Apparently the "traditional Japanese arts of ninjitsu" don't include stealth...
Bridget, Guilty Gear XX

Hold on a second. Aren't the ninja of Ikaruga supposed to be super-stealthy and stuff? ...You're so incredibly loud... and scruffy...
Makoto to Bang Shishigami, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Arcade Mode

Bang Shishigami...he's a ninja from Ikaruga, supposedly, and he has a big X-shaped scar on his face. He's said to talk very loud, and very often. He's scruffy and sweaty and... he doesn't sound very much like a ninja, now that I think about it...
Sena, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Story Mode

Aya: Born in darkness, living in darkness... such is the fate of a ninja! I am Aya, ninja warrior!

Aya: I don't need your fashion report!

Galasso: Only when he's neon green!

Purple? Rain chooses his wardrobe most curiously.
Jade, Mortal Kombat

Miharu: ...Hey, mister... Isn't that embarrassing? That ninja look.
Random Ninja: Shut up!!!

Ninja #1: NINJAS!

When you need to go deep undercover, one disguise is not enough! Put a hood over that ski-mask, then wrap a towel around it. Boldly announce to the world that you are inconspicuous!
— Description of the Dashin' Hashashin, Team Fortress 2

Intelligence operations funded with blood draw more attention than those funded with cash.

Waiter: That man does not look anything like a ninja.
Chef: Ah, but that is exactly what a ninja should look like.
— Staff of a French Ninja Restaurant discussing this trope, Freefall.
