* ''Fanfic/BloodAndRevolution'' has Saitou assigning animal motifs to most of the characters; Aoshi - a literal ninja, last head of the Oniwabanshuu - is given a panther (made only worse once Aoshi becomes a vampire and developes [[AnimalEyes cat eyes]]). To Aoshi's annoyance, he eventually evolves into a chaos demon, and because YourMindMakesItReal his natural form does have a cat tail.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel, ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'', the titular cat, Maurice, is trapped in a dank underground cellar, pursued by massive killer rats operating under the eldritch direction of the evil Rat king. Maurice, a cat given human-level intelligence after a magical accident, has to pull off feats of Ninja-like combat to fight his way out and escape: these involve swimming through mud and sewage and wriggling through increasingly smaller spaces.

* ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy'': In the fifth game, one of the types of cat that can be fought, are "Cat Ninja", who are "very evasive cats".



* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' gives us Blake Belladonna, who is [[LittleBitBeastly a Faunus, a species that is mostly human but with a few animal-like traits]]. Downplayed in that while her moveset and penchant for stealth are similar to that of a ninja, the actual occupation doesn't seem to exist - even if the word "ninja" has been mentioned a few times. ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY Chibi}}'' downright has a segment about Blake being a "[[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Teenage Faunus Ninja Catgirl]]" who [[SmokeOut throws out smoke bombs]] [[CallingYourAttacks shouting "Ninja vanish!"]].

These cats often have all-black fur due to ninjas being generally portrayed as wearing black outfits.

Added DiffLines:

* Interestingly, being a [[CatFolk Lombax]], Ratchet from ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' sometimes flirts with this trope - despite being a hero who deals primarily in [[{{BFG}} superior]] [[StuffBlowingUp firepower]]. In the second game, ''Going Commando'', he was shown in a ninja outfit in a presentation still about "stealth training", in ''Ratchet: Deadlocked'' one of the most difficult awards to obtain is the "Ninja Ratchet" skin ([[NotActuallyCosmeticAward that actually boosts his abilities a little]]), and in ''All-4-One'', he gets a ninja skin alongside Clank, Qwark, and Nefarious.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MoshiMonsters'' has a species of ninja cats called the Caped Assassins (they don't really kill people) who randomly disappear and reappear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/OrcsMustDieUnchained'' has Midnight, a CatGirl Ninja who serves the villain faction as a hired mercenary.


* Obi from ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' is a ninja in all but name-using throwing kunai, wearing stereotypical ninja attire, having been an assassin and spy for hire-with an overt cat [[AnimalMotifs animal motif]].

Added DiffLines:

* Obi of ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' has a [[AnimalMotifs cat motif]] and is unquestionably a ninja even if he's never outright called such in the European based fantasy setting seeing as he is a StealthExpert kunai user who likes to keep his face covered and was formerly an assassin for hire.
