* NamedByTheAdaptation:
** The two player characters were nameless in the arcade version. On the NES, they were called Blade and Striker.
** The third boss, a green ninja with a body-splitting technique, is the only boss not named in the arcade game, although all the other ninja enemies are simply referred to as such, but with a moniker identifying their attack patterns (e.g. ''zako ninja'' for the unarmed blue ninja {{mook}}s, ''nage ninja'' for the shuriken throwing ninja, ''buki ninja'' for the armed ninjas). On the Famicom version's manual, he is referred to as Hanzo.
