Ninjas are people in black cloaks and wield a Shuriken (Ninja Star), but will trade you it for any other weapon. They will attack other ninjas or Pirates, and will protect any nearby Sensei, unless either of them are provoked. They attack all aggressive characters, security cameras, and robots. In Super Scribblenauts, they have a variety of long-range attacks, such as throwing their shuriken or teleporting. They also slice and/or stab with their shuriken when in close range.


  • Oddly, in Scribblenauts they never use their shurikens in combat or any other cases. They will use it in Super Scribblenauts, however they can only throw it once.
  • In Scribblenauts, a battle between a Ninja and a Pirate will always be won by the Pirate, due to the Pirate spawning with a cutlass.
  • A ninja is one of the nine playable 'Avatars' who can replace Maxwell in challenge mode, and one of the ten total avatars.
  • After he loses the shuriken, a sword appears in his hand.
  • In Scribblenauts Remix, if the ninja throws his shrunken, he'll throw it again if he manages to pick it back up. Also in Remix, it will attack Fortresses.
  • The ninja can throw many other things.
  • The ninja will only throw things at pirates.
  • Ninjas can "teleport", by vanishing then appearing in another place.
  • When they teleport, an explosion appears.
  • A ninja has to see his target and must wait 2 seconds before teleporting. They also don't have to be moving. Their teleport range is the same as their sight. This means a paralyzed omniscient ninja can still teleport and get to faraway targets. Teleporting is limited to the ground or hovering on the ground.
