9. Jago from Killer Instinct 

Jago is ninja elite. He flies across the screen shouting, “Whoa yaaaa!” He has a laser sword (we guess), and he’s also the only character in KI2 who can summon spirit powers to go a third round where all the other characters can only go two.

He may not be the most original character on this list (he practically screams “Hadouken!” when he shoots a fireball), but he doesn’t have to be. He’s a ninja. And ninjas are awesome. Nuff said.
