4. Joe Musashi from the Shinobi series
Did you know that the word Shinobi actually MEANS ninja in Japan? That’s about as Ninja as you get. But even if Joe Musashi (with Musashi actually being the name of a famous SAMURAI in Japanese history rather than a ninja, but we’ll let that slide), he’d still be awesome.
Jumping, slashing, throwing Shurikens, and doing everything else a ninja does well, you feel like a real killer when you play as Shinobi. We love it.
