Could motion blur be considered a common component? I know I've seen variations before where the ninja's feet would resemble a horizontal version of Wheel o' Feet.

Removed the Skyrim example because it definitely didn't meet criteria, hesitated on the Real Life example; Is it fair to call a hunched/crouched aiming position a modification of a Ninja Run instead of, say, a modification of standard aiming? Try shifting from the Ninja Run into that standard military defensive approach, then try shifting into it from a regular aiming position. Worth discussing/sharing opinions before making a call.

There does not seem to exist a "Naruto Ninja Run" trope, or does it? You know, where both arms are just loosely fluttering behind your back like a flag in the wind. Since you should only use your feet with all energy you got if you want to run really badass fast.

I don't know...I guess it's already to similar to the trope that it can't or doesn't count a a separate trope. I think it's more of a variant of the ninja run.

They're similar in that both are unusual ways to run to appear more badass, but that variation looks quite different nonetheless. Not saying it needs a seperate page since i've barely seen this outside of Naruto, but that 'flapping variant' doesn't qualify as the Ninja Run described here. The straight trope appears there as well every now and then, but you'll most often see them with both arms behind.

That's technically Airplane Arms.
