The Ninja is an ancient Japanese mercenary skilled in the martial art of Ninjitsu. Clad in black from head to toe with only his glowing white eyes visible, the Ninja is the embodiment of stealth and secrecy. He is an assassin who, unlike the samurai, has no code or honor and works only for the highest bidder. At his disposal he has an arsenal of deadly weapons such as flying stars and a katana sword.

After Mumm-Ra's plan to use Hachiman to kill Lion-O filed, he summoned the Ninja from his cauldron. Taking on the guise of a Tabbut, the Ninja infiltrated the Warrior Maidens' Treetop Kingdom where Slithe was being held prisoner. After freeing the Mutant, the Ninja tried to attack Hachiman but the samurai proved to be a better swordsman, but in the end the Ninja was able to escape at the last minute thanks to his tricks.

Much time after his fight with Hachiman and the ThunderCats, the Ninja, despite his initially evil ways, would later be seen attending Lion-O's Anointment Ceremony peacefully alongside Hachiman, possibly hinting at him having reformed under unknown circumstances.
