* McNinja: Joe Armstrong (from the first, second and forth films) is an American G.I. who was adopted at birth by a ninja master and raised as one himself. His friend, Sean Davidson (from the third and fifth films) is also stated to be a ninja, who learned his skills from his father's friend and trainer, Izumo.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionDressRip: Armstrong does that early in the 1st film. He rescues a young woman from kidnapping and needs her to move through jungle quickly. He breaks heels off her shoes, then cuts her tight skirt and ties the shreds to form less constricting shorts.

Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: ''American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt'' is this. Sean's been infected by a deadly virus and the plot of the movie is him and his friends battling to retrieve the cure. Ultimately, they fail (and one of them dies), but he's able to use his ninja powers to cure himself anyway.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Black Star Master ninja from the first film is the toughest of the bunch.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Black Star Master ninja from the first film is the toughest of the bunch. Although as he's specifically a contractor hired to give ninja-style combat training to the villain's new private army rather than the master of an actual ninja clan, it's no surprise he's a lot better. (Whether his trainees are more loyal to him than their recruiter/employer is never quite addressed.)


Added DiffLines:

** The first film is one of the rare explainable cases: they're using bright red, yellow and blue outfits, but only on training courses where the ninja in different-colored outfits are clearly practicing different groups of activities. With everybody's faces still covered, the colors quite possibly help keep track of everybody to prevent recruits from slacking off or trading out of working on their weak areas. (It might have also helped while shooting those parts of the film.)


* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Obviously.


* TechnicolorNinjas: The fourth film takes this to Franchise/MortalKombat levels, with red, blue, yellow and standard black colored ninja.

The American Ninja series was five films, three of which starred Michael Dudikoff, which saw the title character White Ninja (aka Pvt. Joe T. Armstrong) raised up by a ninja clan, then somehow join the U.S. Army, then run into all sorts of situations requiring him to ninja the shit out of people. Every {{ninja}} trope ever invented is played out multiple times.
