The first priority to the ninja is to win without fighting.
— Masaaki Hatsumi

Ninja, or shinobi, were covert agents and mercenaries in feudal Japan. They were used as spies, assassins, and bodyguards. Ninja are known for practising a form of martial arts called ninjutsu which covered various martial arts and covert operations techniques.

Early records of the ninja are rare as most ninja were recruited from the peasantry, which Japanese historians had little interest in, and were trained to keep as much information about themselves secret. The first known use of ninja in warfare occurred during the Genpei War, during which Minamoto no Yoshitsune chose a few warriors to be his stealth operatives.

Because of the unrest during the Sengoku period, the demand for experts in unconventional warfare rose, leading to spies being professionally trained as ninja and the formation of various ninja clans. Ninja would be frequently hired by daimyo until Oda Nobunaga wiped the ninja clans out, forcing the survivors to hide out in the mountains. Some ended up joining Tokugawa Ieyasu and would act as his bodyguards.

The last known use of ninja in warfare was during the Shimabara Rebellion, where ninja of the Kōga clan were recruited by Tokugawa Iemitsu to suppress the Christian rebels led by Amakusa Shirō. Afterwards, Japan entered a period of peace, and the need for spies declined. Some ninja continued to operate as bodyguards or acted as fire patrol. Others used their skills to find a new occupation in civilian life, while the less fortunate resorted to banditry. Eventually, even the bodyguard ninja were phased out, ending their long history.

Battle vs. Harii Warrior (by Swg66)[]

A lone Ninja is running thru a German forest in the dead of night, he's on a mission. The for has rolled in and he's not sure where he is. He stops for a moment to get his bearings, then he hears a snapping twig. He draws his Wakizahi and three shurikan. He can barly see but he is listening intentilly. He hears somthing whisteling thru the air, and moves to barly avoid a large Dart. He can onyl guess where it came from, but throw a Shurikan at the direction he thinks it came from.

The Ghost warrior can't see his opponent but can see the shine of his blade. His dart has missed, so he takes up his spear. Throwing a rock past the Ninja's location, behind him. The Ninja throws another Shurikan, turining to where he thinks the unknown target is. With his back turned the Ghost runs at him spear held up over his head.

The Ninja quickly realizes he's be tricked and turns to see a giant shadow. He ducks and rolls out of the way. The slahes at the shadow, but hit's somthing hard he can't cut. He can't see it but he's only hit the Ghost sheild. Deciding on a different approch he jumps back, sheathing his sword.

The Germanic Ghost can no longer see the shine of his opponents sword and can only make out a vage shadow dissapeaing into the woods. He gives chase in the general dirrection he saw the shaown dissapear to.

The Ninja has now changed tatics to using his kusarigama. Swinging the chain, making it whistle. The Ghost can hear the chian but can barly make out it out. The Ninja swings the ball at the shadowy figure in front of him, hitting the same hard target. Deciding to try hitting him on the other side he switch the direction of his swing. As he gets the rotation up again, but the chian is caught on somthing, looking up he see's the dark warrior has thrown his spear tangeling the chain.

Having stopped the bizzare weapon, the Ghost warrior draws his club and charges. The Ninja rolls out of the way of the large club. The Ninja pulls out his Black egg. As the Giant charges again he crushes it and throws it at where he thinks his face is. It works, at least partilly. The dark darkness has thrown his aim off, he' hit the German in the left eye only. But it enought to get him to drop his club to try and rub the glass out of his eye, yelling in pain. It only makins it worse, while the Ninja rushes off to get behind him.

With only one eye working, the dark nature of his club means he's unable to locate it. Deciding to draw his last weapon, his Germanic long sword. Looking around he see's the shine of the Ninja's sword again. He deflect the first strike with his own sword, the Second the his sheild and kicks the Ninja to the ground. Rolling to his feet the Ninja goes for another strike. But his sword get stuck with the strike, wedge into the the Ghost warriors sheild.

The Ghost pulls the sheild aside and swings his long sword with all his strength, taking the Ninja's head off with one strike.

The Ghost drops his sheild, and kicks the Ninja body over. Walking over tot he severed head he picks it up and rasies it over his head shouting a laoud victory cry.

WINNER: Ghost Warrior.

Expert's Opinion[]

The experts believed that the Ghost Warriors won due to being trained for longer, and having generally more lethal weapons.

Battle vs. Assassin Brotherhood (by Wassboss)[]

Assassins: WhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhite

Ninja: Black2Black2Black2Black2Black2

The panel slides off the roof and a cloaked figure drops into the hallway, dropping into a crouch as they touch the ground. They glance across the narrow space and beckons with their left hand as they walk down the hallway, with more figures dropping out of the panel. The last one out readjusts the panel to look as though it has not been disturbed before joining the rest at the end of the hallway. The lead assassin carefully pushes open the wooden door, his hand resting on the edge ready to stop if it makes any noise. Once the door has been opened the rest of the men slither into the room, a large open room with dark outline of furniture visible in the glow of the moon. The group continues further into the room, stopping in the centre to gain their bearings as their eyes adjust to the darkness.

“The target is sleeping in one of the rooms through the next corridor. We don’t know which one it is but there’s only five so we’ll each take one room. If the target isn't there then you are to return to the corridor and wait for further instructions.”

The other four assassins nod their heads in agreement. They turn towards the corridor but as the leader takes a step forward he feels a sharp pain in his left hand wrist. He feels his way down his arm with his other hand, stopping when he feels a jagged piece of metal. He pulls it free and glances down, noting the star shaping. His ears prick at the sound of faint footprints and he looks to his right just in time to notice a figure loom up in front of him, arms raised. He turns on his feet instantly, raising his hand and activating the hidden blade which springs out to block the blade heading right for his neck. The rest of the assassins springs into action as two other figures leap out from where they are hidden. One draws a pair of knives and throws them at the nearest figure, striking him in the neck and chest and he falls to the floor gargling on his own blood. Black2

This unfortunately leaves the assassin wide open to attack and the other Ninja stabs him in the chest with his Wakizashi. White

He is quickly met by another assassin, sabre drawn and the two begin to trade strikes. Another assassin goes to help him but the leader protests. “You two go through the corridor and search the rooms we’ll handle this.” The two free men don’t have to be told twice and bolt towards door on the opposite side of the room. The first one through immediately checks through the first door while the second heads to the end of the corridor to check the furthest room. As he does he hears the unmistakable sound of the door adjacent being opened and quickly darts into the nearest room, the door of which is slightly ajar. He comes face to face with a woman, who is stood by the side of a small wooden bed dressed in tattered clothes, probably a servant. Her eyes widen and her mouth opens to scream but the Assassin presses his hidden blade into her throat, putting his free hand over her mouth.

“Don’t worry, I’m not here to hurt you” he says softly and he feels her tremble under his grip. “Just stay quiet and I’ll let you free.” The woman nods her head slowly and the assassin removes his hand tentatively. He lowers the blade from her neck and holds his hand out to make her stop, tip-toeing over to the door and pressing himself against it to hear what is on the other side. He is so concentrated on his task that he doesn't notice the woman approaching until she is almost upon him and as he turns to face her, he feels the cold sharp grip of steel puncture his chest right under the heart. He looks into straight into the woman’s face which has gone from blind terror to a blank fury. She slides the Tanto from side to side to do make sure and the assassin drops to the ground once she removes the knife. She steps over his lifeless body and steps out into the corridor, Tanto clutched tightly. White

Meanwhile back in the initial room the assassins and ninjas are still locked in combat. The leader is under constant attack from his adversary and is being forced further and further back as he desperately tries to fend off his attacks. The other assassin is faring much better though with his longer blade making it hard for the ninja to get close enough to threaten him. He continues patiently until the ninja makes a mistake, leaving him open for the assassin to dart in and slice off his sword hand. He then follows up by whipping his sword across his throat before the ninja can even cry out. Black2

He quickly rushes over to help his fellow assassin and times his strike just as the Ninja readies himself for another attack. The ninja notices the new threat and with blinding speed just about manages to manoeuvre his sword to block the sabre’s slash but his Wakizashi shatters on the impact. Cursing to himself he takes out his Kusarigama and dodges away from another sword swipe, unravelling the chain as he does. The leader assassin also draws his Sabre and joins the other assassin as the ninja frantically backs away. The leader makes the first move and lunges at him with his sword outstretched but the Ninja uses the chain to hook his leg and bring him to the ground with a sharp tug. The other assassin leaps to his leader’s aid but the Ninja whips the sickle around to force him to duck down and then steps forward to kick him in the chest to send him sprawling. He then thrusts the sickle downwards into the dazed assassins head. White

The leader assassin scrambles to his feet and readies his sword as the ninja swings the chain around. The stand-off continues for several moments with neither wanting to make the first move until the ninja steps forward and launches the ball end with the assassin raising his sword to block it. The ball and chain snares the sword and with a sharp tug the ninja wrenches it out of his opponents hands. He then grasps the sickle by the handle and lunges for the assassin who avoids the attack and rests his hand on the handle of his War Hammer, which is tucked under his cloak. He takes out a throwing knife and throws it at the ninja, striking him on the shoulder and making him flinch and the draws his war hammer, caving the ninja’s head in all in one fluid movement.Black2

Back in the corridor the other remaining assassin exits the third room he’s searched and there’s still no sign of the diplomat. He notices a forth door is ajar and as he peeks through, seeing the dead body of his fellow assassin. He hears the patter of footsteps and he turns to see a woman walking towards him, her face streamed with tears. “Stay Back” the assassin says but the woman continues, mumbling something unintelligible behind the crying. “It’s okay I won’t hurt you, just stop where you are,” he continues as she approaches and at the last second he notices the shimmering of a blade. He grabs her arm and she tries to bring the knife down on his chest and knocks her to the ground with a kick. She scrambles backwards in a crawl and takes out a handful of Shurikens and sends them whirling into his chest. He grunts and brushes them away as she grabs the Tanto from where it had fallen and throws herself into him. As they struggle she manages to get on top and, gripping it with both hands, pushes the knife down as the assassin tries to hold her back. Her strength surprises him however and the knife edges closer and close to his chest. Just as he thinks he can’t hold her off any longer her head detaches from her body and rolls away.Black2

The assassin pushes the ninja’s corpse off from on top of him and gets to his feet, as the leader wipes the blood off of his sword. “You came just in the nick of time” he says and he swears he sees a flicker of a smile on the leader assassins face before it hardens.

“Did you find him?” he asks.

“I checked the first three rooms and found nothing. Matteo went into the last room but-.” He pauses for a second. “But he’s dead.”

The Leader dips his head slightly in respect for his fallen comrade. “That leaves only this one” he says indicating the fourth door along. The two men sneak over to the door and open it gently. The inside is lit by a candle and there is a figure lying in the double bed in the centre of the room, the breathing indicating that whoever it is is deep in sleep. The leader assassin nods to the other assassin and he enters the room, his hidden blade sliding out from under his sleeve. He walks over to the bed and ducks down next to the figure, placing his hand on their shoulder to pull them to face him. As he does the figure whips around suddenly and plunges a Tanto into his eye.White

The figure then throws the sheets off of himself and in the direction of the leader assassin, blocking his view while the ninja gets out his Wakizashi. He then closes the distance between the two and thrusts his sword right at the assassins chest but he deflects it expertly and follows up with a slash of his own, which the ninja does well to avoid. The continue on in this fashion for several minutes before the ninja manages to gash the Assassins arm, giving him the distraction he needs to kick the sword out of his hands. Thinking his opponent is now unarmed he tries to stab him but the assassin sidesteps the attack and places his foot on the wall, using it as a solid surface to push himself into the air. As he does he unsheathes his hidden blade and tries to stab him with the hidden blade but in his haste he has forgotten the Ninja is still holding his own blade. Angling the sword upwards he impales the assassin through the chest, throwing his lifeless body to the side. White

"You can come out now master" the Ninja says and a tall but skinny man comes crawling out from underneath the bed, sweat dripping down his face from fear. "It's a good thing you had that premonition of danger otherwise things could've ended much worse."

"I know," the Templar says. "The dream I had ended with me being killed by these assassins. In fact it was eerily similar right up until that last killing blow, almost as if somebody was writing a story but changed their mind on how it ended."

"Well with the assassins dealt with master, I'll leave you to your sleep." The Ninja leaves his bemused master to his ramblings, hopefully next time he'll be assigned to somebody who isn't a complete lunatic raving about dreams he had.

Winner: Ninja

Expert's Opinion[]

Ninja's won because they like to disguise as civilians and Assassins won't kill civilians. That's it.

Battle vs. Order of Assassins and Sicarius (by Killermoves)[]

This warrior won an Ancient Battle of the Year Award









Prologue[]

The sun rose, its golden radiance covering a settlement somewhere along the silk road. Even in the punishing heat, people from all around the globe, gathered and congregated, bringing with them produce to trade and sell. Different languages from both the East and the West, like Latin, Greek, Chinese, and Mongolian, filled the streets and marketplaces. Combined with the various colorful costumes these people wore, from tunics, skirts, pantaloons, and turbans, the place became a united multicultural nation. A simmering stew pot of unique flavors mixed haphazardly, creating a chaotic yet highly savorous taste.

Inside an adobe inn, a lone man wearing a steppe dress and yak fur hat, prayed. He knelt down on a rug and bowed, his head and arms facing the ground. In full submission to the Lord, of the mission he would undertake, he prayed for strength, he prayed for success. He stuttered as he prayed, as dread spread throughout his soul, torturing his mind and body. He was now a mere ember flicking on a wick, not knowing if he would continue to burn or be extinguished. This was his life right now, the fate he chose, which he surrendered to Allah many years ago.

He was a hashashin tasked to commit a great assassination of a foreigner. He knew little yet on how he would be able to commit the grand murder. But he was there nonetheless, no questions asked; he already had with him his long poisoned jambiya. Even as he trembled upon the great challenge, he reassured himself that Allah lived in him. That Allah would guide him. And that Allah would support only the bold and the righteous. Their enemies spread lies about them using hashish and other black magic for their missions. But he only needed Allah and Allah alone.

Near another building three streets away, a buddhist monk wearing a straw hat and exotic blue robes, stood and hummed. On his staff were small bells that rang whenever he shook it, ringing and chiming as passer-bys went. He would ask for donations from the kindly and compassionate. There’s money to be made if he could catch their attention. But the man was not there to just earn some alms. It was all a cover to remain inconspicuous. No one would want to hurt a poor hungry monk, even if that monk was secretly a ninja tasked to kill one poor sap.

The ninja was far from home, in a barbaric world with alien food and customs. The arid environment was something to get used to, not to mention the acrid smell of foreign sweat and spices. Yet, he had no choice for he was sent there by his daimyo. And though he too didn’t know how, he had to do it, in order to earn his rice and keep. If he succeeded, hopefully he’d get fief or be a vassal. Who knew? Maybe he’d be more; far far more than that.

A block away in a plaza where people came to rest and chatter, a devious man wearing a tunic and a large cloak, scanned and observed. He would smile and chuckle at these little parasites walking about, enjoying their lives and wasting coins, ignorant of the people outside starving and dying. He came from a land far away, opressed worse than an old abused farm horse. They were conquered by Sammael’s vermins, who came out of the Mediterranian, parading themselves in armor. These foreigners, who called themselves Romans, brought nothing but grief, suffering, and death. But their occupation and oppression would not last long anymore. His mission today would hopefully free them from their tyranny.

The land he was in belonged to a mighty empire, as powerful and large as Roma. And they had the richness and technology that could potentially destroy that seat of evil. All he had to do right now was to incite chaos in this meek community, belonging to one powerful member of this empire’s oligarch. He brought with him Roman sica knives and garments, to make it look like the latter had declared war and drew first blood. Hopefully, a large war between the two would begin, and hopefully it would end in Rome’s destruction.

However, intelligence from his people told him that there were some who would try to stop him. Not Romans, but a bunch of foreigners who were anxious that a war between the Italians and the Chinese would be so great, that it would spill and cause death to their lands as well. Scholars, wise men, and even oracles and prophets, spoke of such a world war that would be far worse that any war that was ever seen. A conflict so massive, its shadows of death would engulf the world, leaving millions dead, with decadence soon to follow. Hence why many would want it stopped.

They could try. But they’d have to find and kill him first. The man, a sicarius from Judah, was ready for anyone who would try to stop him. Anyone who would try to destroy their plans. Anyone who would attempt to destroy their dreams of freedom.

Battle[]

It was late afternoon, probably only an hour before evening. A time where the streets were most busy with people who had finished their jobs, now going about buying dinner or heading home. The sicarius was still in the plaza, excitement flowing all over him as he witnessed the number of people increase and bloat. Hours watching the area gave him the knowledge of the best places to strike, as well as the best places to slip away. With darkness coming soon, getting away would be less difficult.

It was now or never. He must not waste the adrenaline and zealotism running strong in his veins. He made a deep inhale before heading out into the crowd.

As he went, the ninja watched from a far. He had already located his quarry a few hours ago with the information given to him and those he gathered himself. But he continued to wait and procrastinate. He was unsure of what he could and should do. This was different from how he usually did things. While he had his wakizashi strapped to his waist, his fingers softly touching its grip, he had not committed this kind of murder in such a circumstance before. The idea of diving into a throng of barbarians made one who was accustomed to isolationism sick. The ninja himself could feel the pressure puncturing his heart and making it bleed. Still not knowing what to do, he decided to stand down and think more of this through.

From another corner of the plaza, sitting on a bench together with a couple of strangers, the hashashins too kept track of the two. Those fools were smack-dabbed into the point of no return, dangling on a cliff that led nowhere but certain death. One was ready to dive head first, while the other wept as if life itself planned to drop him against his will. Still, it was sort of entertaining, in a dark and twisted way, watching them attempt to perform this play. The hashashin knew his part as well. It was now a matter of patience how he would conduct it to get the most applause.

There was a cry, followed by another and another. Soon, cries from a thousand languages echoed in the air, followed by great thrashing and stampeding feet. The sicarius pulled his sica away from a Chinese elder’s chest, and the man fell where the others laid. On the dusty ground were a great pool of blood. Besides the old man, was a young boy whose neck was slit, a young girl weeping as her face was sliced in two, and a pregnant woman clutching her left side in pain.

With his deed done, the sicarius raised his arms and yelled the most Roman thing he could think of. “Sic semper tyrannis!” he yelled before dropping his blade and running away into the alleyways. He would further strip himself of his garments, wiping the blood off of him as well, until he only wore a simple one-piece tunic. He ran a further distance away before finding the nearest crowd to hide and blend in.

The night would then be filled with fear, as news of the terroristic act further spread, and the settlement became beset by roving armed prefects. No one dared to come out into the street and become the next victim of the sicarius’s knife. Hopefully, his act, as well as the knife and garments he left behind, would be evidence of a Roman incursion. When he went back to his inn, he added more to his body count by killing the innkeeper and his family. He then rested in his room, which was also jam-packed with Roman wares, including armors, fake letters, and more sica daggers. Their discovery would further fan the vengeful rage of the Chinese.

Now at peace, the sicarius smiled for doing a job well done. Getting out of the settlement would be as difficult as stuffing a Roman bastard inside of another Roman bastard. But hell, he’d already accomplished his mission. The sicarius wouldn’t care what would happen to him. All he cared was what would happen to his people next. It would be another long and bloody struggle, but at least, freedom would be near, and the destruction of Rome assured.

It was a shame though, for he was also waiting for the ones who were supposed to stop him. He was actually prepared to die in that street. Yet, narry a sound, a sight, or even just a slight disturbance was present. The sicarius did not know whether to be relieved or be disappointed. Guess he was expecting more to happen today. Maybe Yahweh had other plans for him in store. May He be praised by a thousand nations.

Suddenly, the sound of a curtain falling to the floor entered the sicarius’s ears. He jerked back, a sica in his hand, only to meet the stroke of a glistening steel. The ninja slashed his wakizashi with great force upon the sicarius’s neck. Although it only managed to get half-through, it was enough to cut both bone and vocal cords. No screams came out of the sicarius’s mouth; his face bearing the look of a shocked idiot. The moment he fell to the floor, the ninja followed up with another chop, severing his head completely from his body.

The ninja then sheathed his sword and tried to catch his bread. Blood continued to spill and puddle, with little trickles seeping into the boards and raining down on the floor below. Blood, however, was not of the ninja’s concern. Getting his hands and feet bloodied was part of the course. The damage had been done and killing the sicarius was only one part of quenching the fires of rage. After a brief rest, the ninja unstrapped a parcel made of waterproof goat skin. He took out a letter that was written in Chinese, signed by their own Chinese ambassadors and officials, telling those who would read it that the attacks were a setup. That the man was not a Roman and the Romans had nothing to do with the crimes.

It would be a long shot. Who knew if the Chinese would buy it. But they had to try. They had to hope that the wanting for peace far outweighed the thirst for blood. And if this one failed, the ninja believed that the shogun would know what to do. He did worry about the prospects of whether he’d still be allowed to keep his head intact after this. But what’s done was done.

The ninja didn’t bother going downstairs. He decided to continue with the safest route — escaping through the rooftops. He got out of the window and dropped to the next house. He then jumped off unto another building, grabbing a window sill, and climbed up. He kept moving from one nearby building to another, until he came upon an abandoned one, with a broken down rooftop greenery that would serve well as a place of refuge. It was too dangerous to go out into the streets; better to stay put and rest for the night.

A new morning came and people were back outside. Dread still permeated in the atmosphere and prefects continued to roam and question people. The ninja came down from the building and walked away. He glimpsed at the inn where he killed the sicarius, now filled with people buzzing around. Someone had already discovered the bodies. Hopefully, they would be able to do a proper investigation. The ninja then came upon the plaza where the attacks took place. The bodies were gone but blood was still in the dusty ground. Markers were placed as signs of respect for the dead.

Afterwards, he continued to the stables to get his horse and ride towards the port. He couldn’t wait to finally get back to Japan — back to his family and back to his daimyo. If he was going to die, he’d rather be in the land of the rising sun.

The ninja suddenly felt a sharp pain that crippled him. A knife had lacerated his whole thigh, severing muscles and a femoral artery. Screaming, the ninja knelt down as he grasped his leg. He then felt another powerful pain in his chest, and looking down, he saw a jambiya knife jabbed right through him. The ninja made one final gasp before dropping to the ground. As he looked at the sky, sensing life leaving his body, he could hear the screams of the citizens, and the breathing of someone nearby.

Eye to eye, the hashashin and the ninja stared at each other. Complete strangers in this strange world who were currently in shadow conflict against each other. In full view of the ninja, the hashashin took off his cloak, revealing himself to be wearing a Roman lorica segmentata armor — the same one inside the Sicarius’s room. He also took out from his pocket the same letter that the ninja brought with him, which the hashashin tore into tiny little pieces in front of the ninja’s eyes. Soon, the ninja died, and the hashashin could hear the thundering footsteps of prefects and soldiers coming towards him.

The armed Chinese shouted at him, mostly curses and threats. The hashashin understood them well and he could feel the hatred in those words they sent. The Chinese were angered beyond forgiveness. The sort of anger that made one so enraged they didn’t know right from wrong anymore. The sort of anger that caused genocide on a scale that was inhuman and demonic. The sort of anger that even Al Shaitan would blush from. The Chinese wanted blood from those responsible, and right now the hashashin, the prime suspect, would satisfy this bloodlust.

Without fear, in full calmness of mind, the hashashin raised his arms and praised Allah in Latin. He then spoke to the Chinese in their own language, dishing out his own curses and insults. He stated that he, and the sicarius, the one who committed those murders and the one found dead inside that inn full of Roman wares, were Romans. He added how their fellow Romans, and the Roman Empire as a whole, despised the Chinese. How they were disgusted of them. How they consider their culture inferior. How deformed their people were and how bug-like they were. How filthy the pigs they called their women were. How dumb they were to the point that they wouldn’t recognize their mothers from their wives.

Finally, the hashashin ended his inflammatory poetry with the declaration that the Italians would love to come there and wipe their people off the face of the Earth. And how they were already planning to do it and he was only an appetizer.

The prefects had lost their minds. Reason was thrown out; civility dissolved in their hearts. They became more like animals than people after that scornful speech. And this was what the hashashin wanted. The prefects then charged with their swords, spears, and halberds. They skewered the hashashin in the gut, chopped off his limbs, and lopped off parts of his skull. Being ripped to shreds was not always quick. Anyone that angry would want to prolong the suffering of the accursed, and make sure to not leave any area of the skin uncut.

But for the hashashin, it didn’t matter. He had made his people and Allah proud. He had made the former rich too. The Judeans would give the rest of what they owed to the Old Man of the Mountain for his performance. And whoever and whatever nation would die in the upcoming war would be none of their concern.

Expert's Opinion[]

The hashashin was crowned the deadliest ancient hitman for his superior ability to disguise himself, use language, and blend in. He was also the better trained and most experienced when it comes to assassination between the three.

The ninja didn’t lag behind, and some noted that he was the best when it comes to gathering information for an assassination. He also had one of the best weapons and was more advanced. However, his lack of training and experience in all manners of assassination cost him in the end.

The sicarius was placed in last place due to the fact that they were less experienced, less disciplined, and were not as sophisticated as the hashashin and the ninja.

Battle vs. Zulu Warrior (by Swg66)[]

The Zulu warrior is walking through a open feild with tall grass, he hears a rustling, pulling out his axe and chewing his posion he gets ready for a fight. Suddenly and whisteling sound is heard and somthing cut's the Zulu's arm, looking behind him, he put's his axe in his other hand and picks up his assegai, again he is cut by an unkown force. Yelling out in anger that he can't find his oppoent, then he see's somthing. The Ninja in the tree jsut as he shots the dart at him, catching the projectile in his sheild he throws his spear, not hitting the Ninja directly but grazing him. The Ninja jumps down from the tree taking out his kusarigama and ducks into the grass. The Zulu has his axe out and is once again looking for the Ninja. Jumping out behind the Zulu throwing the weight at the Zulu's axe and disarms him of it. Rushing towards the Zulu breaking a black egg. But as he throws it into the Zulu's face thr Zulu spit's into the Ninja's, blinding each other. The Ninja drops the kusarigama, trying to rub the posion out of eye's. The Zulu takes his spear out and charges forward. Recovering in time to see this the Ninja rolls while unsheathing his sword, slashing the Zulu's leg. Swinging around to try and catch the Ninja but the Ninja rolls agains, this time stabing the Zulu in the thigh. Trying and failing again the catch the Ninja, he is stabbed in the side. The Zulu drops down to one knee in pain the Ninja seeing his oppertunity, the Ninja jumps at the Zulu his Sword raised. But the Zulu rises into it, batting the Ninja to the ground, and stabs him in the heart. Standing up the Zulu yells "uSuthu!!!" holding his spear high over his head in victory.

Expert's Opinion[]

The Ninja's were great assassin's but poorly suited for head to head combat. The Zulu's however were trained to kill without mercy, this along with the Zulu's high pain tolerance against the Ninja's mostly hindering weapons gave him the advantage.

Three Shaolin Monks are walking through the woods, heading back home. Meanwhile, three Ninjas see the weapons that the monks have and think that it would be nice to take them. One of them throws a shuriken, but it misses, hitting a road sign and alerting the Monks to the ninjas. One of the ninjas covers for his teammate by shooting a blowgun dart and killing a monk. Blue

Two of the Ninjas come out of cover from the trees. One of the monks throws a Meteor Hammer, but the ninja he threw it at dodges it. One ninja tries to attack a monk with his Kusari-Fundo but the monk raps it up in his whip chain. At the same time, the second ninja tries to knock the monk over with his Bo, but the monk defends himself with his waxwood staff. The Kusari-Fundo ninja pulls the whip chain monk close to him and slashes the monk on the cheek with his Nekote. The Monk answers back by cutting off the ninjas head with his Twin Hooks. Red

Meanwhile the second ninja cuts the waxwood staff in half with his Ninjato. Just as he is about to stab with his sword, his head falls off. Red The other monk cut off the ninjas head with his spade. They go down the trail, and the last ninja sneaks up behind the monks. He hits one over the head with his shobo and tries to strangle the other monk with his torinawa. The monk returns the favor from before and stabs the ninja with his Emei Piercers. Red

The Monk thanks him and they walk away, saying a prayer for there fallen brother.

Battle vs. Assassin Brotherhood (by Wassboss)[]

Assassins: WhiteWhiteWhiteWhiteWhite

Ninja: Black2Black2Black2Black2Black2

The panel slides off the roof and a cloaked figure drops into the hallway, dropping into a crouch as they touch the ground. They glance across the narrow space and beckons with their left hand as they walk down the hallway, with more figures dropping out of the panel. The last one out readjusts the panel to look as though it has not been disturbed before joining the rest at the end of the hallway. The lead assassin carefully pushes open the wooden door, his hand resting on the edge ready to stop if it makes any noise. Once the door has been opened the rest of the men slither into the room, a large open room with dark outline of furniture visible in the glow of the moon. The group continues further into the room, stopping in the centre to gain their bearings as their eyes adjust to the darkness.

“The target is sleeping in one of the rooms through the next corridor. We don’t know which one it is but there’s only five so we’ll each take one room. If the target isn't there then you are to return to the corridor and wait for further instructions.”

The other four assassins nod their heads in agreement. They turn towards the corridor but as the leader takes a step forward he feels a sharp pain in his left hand wrist. He feels his way down his arm with his other hand, stopping when he feels a jagged piece of metal. He pulls it free and glances down, noting the star shaping. His ears prick at the sound of faint footprints and he looks to his right just in time to notice a figure loom up in front of him, arms raised. He turns on his feet instantly, raising his hand and activating the hidden blade which springs out to block the blade heading right for his neck. The rest of the assassins springs into action as two other figures leap out from where they are hidden. One draws a pair of knives and throws them at the nearest figure, striking him in the neck and chest and he falls to the floor gargling on his own blood. Black2

This unfortunately leaves the assassin wide open to attack and the other Ninja stabs him in the chest with his Ninjato. White

He is quickly met by another assassin, sabre drawn and the two begin to trade strikes. Another assassin goes to help him but the leader protests.

“You two go through the corridor and search the rooms we’ll handle this.” The two free men don’t have to be told twice and bolt towards door on the opposite side of the room. The first one through immediately checks through the first door while the second heads to the end of the corridor to check the furthest room. As he does he hears the unmistakable sound of the door adjacent being opened and quickly darts into the nearest room, the door of which is slightly ajar. He comes face to face with a woman, who is stood by the side of a small wooden bed dressed in tattered clothes, probably a servant. Her eyes widen and her mouth opens to scream but the Assassin presses his hidden blade into her throat, putting his free hand over her mouth.

“Don’t worry, I’m not here to hurt you” he says softly and he feels her tremble under his grip. “Just stay quiet and I’ll let you free.” The woman nods her head slowly and the assassin removes his hand tentatively. He lowers the blade from her neck and holds his hand out to make her stop, tip-toeing over to the door and pressing himself against it to hear what is on the other side. He is so concentrated on his task that he doesn't notice the woman approaching until she is almost upon him and as he turns to face her, he feels the cold sharp grip of steel puncture his chest right under the heart. He looks into straight into the woman’s face which has gone from blind terror to a blank fury. She slides the Tanto from side to side to do make sure and the assassin drops to the ground once she removes the knife. She steps over his lifeless body and steps out into the corridor, Tanto clutched tightly. White

Meanwhile back in the initial room the assassins and ninjas are still locked in combat. The leader is under constant attack from his adversary and is being forced further and further back as he desperately tries to fend off his attacks. The other assassin is faring much better though with his longer blade making it hard for the ninja to get close enough to threaten him. He continues patiently until the ninja makes a mistake, leaving him open for the assassin to dart in and slice off his sword hand. He then follows up by whipping his sword across his throat before the ninja can even cry out. Black2

He quickly rushes over to help his fellow assassin and times his strike just as the Ninja readies himself for another attack. The ninja notices the new threat and with blinding speed just about manages to manoeuvre his sword to block the sabre’s slash but his Ninjato shatters on the impact. Cursing to himself he takes out his Kusarigama and dodges away from another sword swipe, unravelling the chain as he does. The leader assassin also draws his Sabre and joins the other assassin as the ninja frantically backs away. The leader makes the first move and lunges at him with his sword outstretched but the Ninja uses the chain to hook his leg and bring him to the ground with a sharp tug. The other assassin leaps to his leader’s aid but the Ninja whips the sickle around to force him to duck down and then steps forward to kick him in the chest to send him sprawling. He then thrusts the sickle downwards into the dazed assassins head. White

The leader assassin scrambles to his feet and readies his sword as the ninja swings the chain around. The stand-off continues for several moments with neither wanting to make the first move until the ninja steps forward and launches the ball end with the assassin raising his sword to block it. The ball and chain snares the sword and with a sharp tug the ninja wrenches it out of his opponents hands. He then grasps the sickle by the handle and lunges for the assassin who avoids the attack and rests his hand on the handle of his War Hammer, which is tucked under his cloak. He takes out a throwing knife and throws it at the ninja, striking him on the shoulder and making him flinch and the draws his war hammer, caving the ninja’s head in all in one fluid movement.Black2

Back in the corridor the other remaining assassin exits the third room he’s searched and there’s still no sign of the diplomat. He notices a forth door is ajar and as he peeks through, seeing the dead body of his fellow assassin. He hears the patter of footsteps and he turns to see a woman walking towards him, her face streamed with tears. “Stay Back” the assassin says but the woman continues, mumbling something unintelligible behind the crying. “It’s okay I won’t hurt you, just stop where you are,” he continues as she approaches and at the last second he notices the shimmering of a blade. He grabs her arm and she tries to bring the knife down on his chest and knocks her to the ground with a kick. She scrambles backwards in a crawl and takes out a handful of Shurikens and sends them whirling into his chest. He grunts and brushes them away as she grabs the Tanto from where it had fallen and throws herself into him. As they struggle she manages to get on top and, gripping it with both hands, pushes the knife down as the assassin tries to hold her back. Her strength surprises him however and the knife edges closer and close to his chest. Just as he thinks he can’t hold her off any longer her head detaches from her body and rolls away.Black2

The assassin pushes the ninja’s corpse off from on top of him and gets to his feet, as the leader wipes the blood off of his sword. “You came just in the nick of time” he says and he swears he sees a flicker of a smile on the leader assassins face before it hardens.

“Did you find him?” he asks.

“I checked the first three rooms and found nothing. Matteo went into the last room but-.” He pauses for a second. “But he’s dead.”

The Leader dips his head slightly in respect for his fallen comrade. “That leaves only this one” he says indicating the fourth door along. The two men sneak over to the door and open it gently. The inside is lit by a candle and there is a figure lying in the double bed in the centre of the room, the breathing indicating that whoever it is is deep in sleep. The leader assassin nods to the other assassin and he enters the room, his hidden blade sliding out from under his sleeve. He walks over to the bed and ducks down next to the figure, placing his hand on their shoulder to pull them to face him. As he does the figure whips around suddenly and plunges a Tanto into his eye.White

The figure then throws the sheets off of himself and in the direction of the leader assassin, blocking his view while the ninja gets out his Ninjato. He then closes the distance between the two and thrusts his sword right at the assassins chest but he deflects it expertly and follows up with a slash of his own, which the ninja does well to avoid. The continue on in this fashion for several minutes before the ninja manages to gash the Assassins arm, giving him the distraction he needs to kick the sword out of his hands. Thinking his opponent is now unarmed he tries to stab him but the assassin sidesteps the attack and places his foot on the wall, using it as a solid surface to push himself into the air. As he does he unsheathes his hidden blade and kicks the ninja in the face, knocking him back and giving him the perfect opportunity to punch the blade downwards into the ninjas unprotected neck.Black2

The assassin lands gracefully and looks down at his dead opponent. He scans the rest of the room and sighs to himself. “He must have gotten away” he murmurs to himself and turns to leave but as he reaches the door his ears pick up a tiny whimper coming from the bed. He strides back over to it and peers underneath, finding a tall but skinny man cowering in fear. He reaches under and drags him out, slamming him down on the bedside table and raising the hidden blade above his head.

“Please don’t kill me” he snivels “I’ll do anything, pay anything just let me live.”

“I don’t do this for money,” the assassin says “I do this for freedom.” He then plunges the hidden blade into the Templar’s chest.

Winner: Assassins (Assassins Creed)

Expert's Opinion[]

The Assassins were simply much to skilled for the Ninja's to handle. They had the better weaponry at pretty much all ranges and there expertise at parkour meant they could use their environment to their advantage and to catch the Ninja's off guard.

Battle vs. Apache Warrior (by Goddess of Despair)[]

The three apaches are camping at a lake in the middle of the forest. The ninjas approach the camp as silent as possible. The ninjas step closer and closer until, snap. A ninja looks down to see he stepped on a branch. He looked up and was greeted with an arrow to the throat. He fell down grasping the arrow. Ninjas-2 Apaches-3

The two ninjas see their partner fall and look at each other. They look at the apache who killed their ally and the first ninja threw a shurikan. It stuck right in the apache’s shoulder causing him to grasp it in pain. A barrage off shurikans came flying at the other apaches who are forced to scatter. The injured one however falls back words riddled with shurikans all over his body. Ninjas-2 Apaches-2

The ninjas fall back into the woods as the apaches yell loudly and fire arrows at the ninjas. One hit a ninja in his lower back causing him to fall down in pain. The other ninja tore out the arrow and helped him up as they continued to retreat. The apaches charge after the ninjas continuing to yell as they split up to chase the ninjas in the woods. The wounded ninja hears a war cry of an approaching apache and looks for a spot to hide. He smells something odd and examines his surroundings. He sees several bodies covered in slash marks. He hears the apache closing in and lies down next to them. The apache enters the clearing the wounded ninja is at and looks around. Suddenly the ninja jumps up from the ground kama ready. The apache and the ninja lock knives and struggle to shove each other back. The apache draws his second knife and slashes at the ninja’s leg. The ninja falls down slightly then dies before the apache could strike again. The apache thinks for a second then realizes it was the poison from his arrow.

Ninjas-1 Apaches-2

The last ninja sees his comrade killed and ready’s his blow dart. As the apache looks and sees the last ninja he is hit mid chest by the dart. He gripped the dart then seconds later died from the poison.

Ninjas-1 Apaches-1

The last apache and the last ninja make eye contact. The ninja draws his ninjato and the apache draws two tomahawks. The ninja slashes horizontal and the apache parried the blade with his tomahawks and kicked the ninja back words, causing him to drop the ninjato. The ninja retreated to were the corpses of the other ninja and apache. He heard the apache approaching and readied a blowdart. He shot the dart at the apache as two tomahawks landed near his legs. The dart hit the apache in his arm but he ignored the pain and charged at the ninja.The ninja backed up slowly as the apche threw a knife at his knee. He roared in pain and tore out the bloodied blade and tossed it aside as the apache closed in. The apache swung his blade high and low yet the ninja parried it and counter striked each time with his kama. The ninja prepared to decapitate the apache with a final slash but the apache ducked and punched the knife wound. The ninja stumbled back words and then was tackled by the apache who put his knife to ninja’s throat and then gasped. He fell to the side dead from the poison. Ninjas-1 Apache-X

Expert's Opinion[]

The ninja and the apache were both great warriors. The apache was fierce but was not as stealthy as the ninja and could not compare with the martial arts the ninja mastered. The final factor that led to the ninja's victory was the fact that the apache's weapons were made of weaker matierial then the ninja's equipment.

Battle vs. Musketeers of the Guard (by Goddess of Despair)[]

Musketeers GreenGreenGreenGreen Ninja Black2Black2Black2Black2

4 Musketeers wait impatiently near a small town. The Night before, a Musketeer challenged one of the local "farmers" to a duel. He invited some of his fellow musketeers to watch and, if his opponent brought others with him, to defend against a potential ambush.

After waiting 30 minutes past the agreed time, the farmer finally appeared. He was dressed in black, holding a sharpened ninjato. Smiling, a musketeer drew his rapier in one hand and main gauche in the other. The Ninja took a black egg, crushed it and hurled it at the musketeer.

On instinct the musketeer turned his head. Exploiting this, the Ninja rushed forward and sliced off his head. Green

One of the spectating musketeers stepped forward and blasted the Ninja point black with a wheelock pistol. Black2

From behind, a hidden Ninja fired a shot from his Tanegashima musket, hitting a Musketeer before vanishing from sight. Green

The final two Musketeers retreated took cover behind a large a stone. They sat there, muskets in hand, listening for movement. Yet they heard nothing…One Musketeer took a quick peek over the stone just as a musket ball rammed into the rock’s side.

He quickly ducked again as his comrade pulled out a grenade and drew for a match. Lighting the fuse, he waited a moment before throwing it over the rock. An unlucky Ninja, who was advancing on their position, was caught in the blast radius. Black2

The two Musketeer’s celebration was abruptly cut short by a Ninja who blasted one with his Osutsu. Green

Aiming his wheelock pistol, the final Musketeer attempted to fire his sidearm, however it jammed. The Ninja drew his Ninjato and rushed forward. The Musketeer threw down his pistol and drew his Main Gauche in his left hand, and his Rapier in the other.

The Ninja sliced vertically, but the Musketeer caught his blade with his Main Gauche. Before he could thrust his Rapier, the Musketeer’s head was hacked off from behind! Green

The two Ninjas looked eachother in the eyes, and together, fled from the battlefield.

Expert's Opinion[]

While the Musketeers carried the powerful Flintlock Musket and Grenade, their armor severly hampered them whenever it came to mobility. The Ninja's stealth, training, and experience fighting armored foes like Samurai led them to dominating the Musketeers.

Battle vs. Conquistador (by MilenHD)[]

Conquistadors: Grey Grey Grey Grey Grey

Ninjas: Black Black Black Black Black


In a small coastal town in Japan and small boat arrived at the docks, from the boat five Conquistadors emerged armed to teeth and dragging the attention of the local fisherman. It was almost night time and the Spaniards needed a place to rest, meanwhile five of the locals went inside a small hut and one of the Spaniards looked at them suspicious and he decided to check them from curiosity. He had nothing to worry since he had a loaded arquebus in his hands and as he enter the hut, everything was pitch black and he was unable to see anything.

The Spaniard needed to lit a torch and as he drop his arquebus, he simply sealed his fate as blow dart pierced his neck alongside with two shurikens, one in the neck and one in the eye.Grey As his lifeless body felt down, five man dressed in black and with chainmail underneath emerged sneaking and there was a building where the Conquistadors resided nearby. The Ninjas came closer and heard them chanting to each other. One of the Ninjas with tanegashima climbed the nearby tree to the window and as he loaded his tanegashima, he waited one of the Spaniards to show and one of them moved near the window and the Ninja gave his allies a signal to hide in he bushes and he fired, shattering the glass pane and killing the Conquistador with shot in the neck.Grey

The Conquistadors realized that one of their men is missing for now 10 minutes and one of them is killed. The captain realized they are under attack and as one of the Ninjas was climbing, the captain fired his pistol crossbow hitting him in the face and slaying the Shinobi.Black As the Ninja who was in the tree jumped in the room with his ninjato ready, he decapitated one of the Spaniards, only to get destroyed by the arquebuses of his comrades.Grey Black

As the Conquistadors went downstairs and the Shinobis found an empty room upstairs, except for the murders that happened and an open door leading downstairs, which the Japanese followed. One of the Ninjas holding kusarigama and the alabarda holding Conquistador began fighting, the Ninja managed to trip the Spaniard's alabarda, only to get brutally impaled with it in the heart.Black The remaining Shinobis pulled the kusarigama and retreated and the alabarda wielding Conquistador and the swordsman followed them, only the alabarda wielder to get his face smashed by the kusarigama's ball and sliced throat by the sickle.Grey

The last Conquistador began dueling with the Ninjas, he was now fueled with anger that his friends are all assassinated. The kusarigama wielder swung his chain only to bounce from the Spaniard's armor and the Conquistador stabbed the first Ninja in the abdomen and as he turned he parried the ninjato and stabbed three time the second Ninja in the chest, killing both of them. Black Black

As the Ninjas were dead, the Conquistadors raised his espada ropera and shouted in victory.

Expert's Opinion[]

The Conquistadors better weapons and armor won them this battle. Plus the Ninjas only good weapon, the tanegashima just ruins their stealth, and so this is why they were so screwed in this match.

Battle vs. Zande Warrior (by Kingjofferyjr)[]

The Zande burst through the thin wall of the wooden hut as the assasin jumped through the small opening the tribesmen called a window. He quickly looked around the room with his spear raised with both fear and malice. It was empty. The Zande had to admit that this murderer was skilled having been capable of killing three experienced warriors and their leader with only metal stars. He had easily outrun the young Azande but not him. He had fought off many white slave traders and slaughtered them as they fled, this assasins days were numbered.

The Ninja burst through the window into the hut before summer-saulting out of the next one. He jumped onto the roof just in time as the tribal warrior crashed into the hut. He stayed there for a few seconds before acting. He grabbed a black egg from his satchel and threw it into the window. He heard scramblingand coughing within the hut as the man stumbled out into the opening. The man collapsed on the ground, desperately sucking in the clan air. The ninja jumped from the low roof and walked towards the man. He attempted to get up but in the blink of an eye a shuriken flew through the air. It cut into the mans forearm but he did not cry out. He simply reached for his shield as the ninja looked on with curiosity. Suddenly the man drew a strange spiked metal knife as the ninja reached down for his shurikens. With great speed he threw the shuriken but it barely pierced his shield.

The Zande hurled his Kpinga with as much force as his injured forearm would let him. The hilt smacked against the the mans stomach, emptying the assassins lungs. He followed up with a swipe with his spear but he was left cutting air as the ninja, showing great agility, dodged the sharp blade. He stabbed again but this time he just found his mark. The spiked edges cut into the mans thigh but again he backed off while showing no discomfort at the same time. He drew a chain from his waist along with a claw and a metal ball, He swung the ball at the Zandes head but he raised his shield. The wicker was broke to splinters as the sphere smashed through with ease. He tried stabbing again to keep the ninja out of reach but he dug the spike into the spears handle and pulled, yanking it from his hand. The Zande charged as the spike flew an inch over his head. He slammed his body into the ninjas as he was thrown onto the ground while the ball and spike was thrown in another direction. He grabbed his makraka from his back and slashed at the ninja but again he danced out of the way with his sword in his hand.

The ninja pressed on with his ninjato, easily blocking his opponent wild slahes. He deflected a downwards slash before kicking him in the stomach. He followed up with a second cut to the forearm causing him to drop his sword before stabbing him deep in the shoulder. The Zande finally fell to the ground, his tanned face now pale. The Ninja raised his sword again, ready to deliver the final blow when he suddenly colla[sed. He looked at his stomach in time to see an arrow stuck in his stomach. He glanced at the Zande who replied with a wide grin. The Zande, with great difficulty, stood before pulling the poisoned arrow from the ninjas chest and drove through his eye.

Battle vs. Caribbean Pirate (by The Deadliest Warrior)[]

Pirates: Red Red Red Red Red

Ninjas: Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue

The wooden ship rolled heavily on the rough, choppy seas. The flag of Britain was lowered down the mast and replaced with a black flag with white skull and crossbones on it. Over the horizon, the remains of a true British ship-of-the-line drifted and slowly slipped under the water. The H.M.S. Juno had lost its battle with a vicious pirate ship, the Devil’s Advocate.

Onboard the slightly damaged ship, Captain Gerald “Sweetwater” Wesley, a former British sailor who committed mutiny against his captain and turned to the life of a pirate, looked down on a map with several crew members. “The waves are takin’ us off course,” grunted Captain Sweetwater. He pointed a thick finger, laden with rings, down on the map. “We’ve already been blown past India. At this rate we’ll be taken right into China or somewhere else. This can’t be.”

“Don’t worry, Cap!” said William “Scurvy” Jones. “Anywhere we go, treasure follows.”

“Aye,” agreed Vanessa “Sea-Legs” Pratford. “Don’t you worry. Our cannons are still workin’ and confidence is high. Let the seas take us where she wish. We fear none!” The pirates raised a cry over the table and went down into the captain’s cabin to further make plans.


As the Devil’s Advocate continued to blow off-course, closer and closer to not China but Japan, Miyamoto Sashimi crawled across a rooftop in the darkness. Behind him were four fellow assassins and he turned to make sure they were behind him. Tokugawa Yasumi nodded and lowered a rope down the side of the small house. Hana Izanami, the female assassin of the team, whipped out her tessen, or war fan, and slid down the rope. Miyamoto quickly pulled the rope up and waited. Soon enough, Hana scaled her way back up the wall, her tessen blades red with blood. Miyamoto nodded with satisfaction as another mission had been completed, and the ninjas vanished as quickly as they had come.


Within the week, the Devil’s Advocate docked at one of the Japanese coastal ports. The English pirates were unaccustomed to the Japanese way of life but enjoyed themselves extensively, buying local dishes at the taverns and looking at the exotic weapons – as well as enjoying the local women, for the men’s part. One evening, Captain Sweetwater broke the news to his crew – they’d be leaving the next night. Hearts heavy, the pirates set out to enjoy themselves for one more night in Japan.


Miyamoto Sashimi and his ninja team watched from behind the barrels and crates that night. The moonlight reflected surrealistic silver across the village and through the ocean water. His team had been told to take care of these foreign intruders – Japan had been isolated from Western influence for nearly 150 years, and the shogunate was not thrilled to see such people on Eastern soil. Miyamoto gave the signal and one of his men, Tatsume Kyotunaga, darted forward, wakizashi sword out of his scabbard. Tokugawa followed and then Hana. Finally Gokomatsu Taro went charging at the Devil’s Advocate. Miyamoto brought up the rear of the group. They each slipped on metal claws over their fingers and easily scaled the side of the wooden ship; as they leaped over the edge onto the deck they stumbled upon Henry “Pickles” Nelson, who was about to retreat to his cabin. Tatsume raised his fukiya to his mouth and blows out a poisoned dart, which strikes Pickles in the neck. The pirate grabs his neck, startled, cries out, and staggers over to the side of the ship, where he topples over into the water. Red


The pirates, half-asleep in their cabins, are unaware of Pickles’ death cry. Only Captain Sweetwater leaves his private cabin and goes into the common cabin room to find out what the commotion was. To his shock, he finds Gokomatsu slitting the throats of each of the sleeping pirates with his wakizashi. Roaring with rage, Captain Sweetwater pulls out his flintlock pistol and shoots Gokomatsu Taro in the chest. Blue Only three pirates escape their comrades’ fate and Captain Sweetwater shouts, “We’re under attack!”


Scurvy Jones and Sea-Legs Pratford roll out from their hammocks and grab their swords and other weapons. The only other survivor, Edward “Cut-Throat” Whitecliffe, also got up and jumped for his weapons without question. Cut-Throat and heads for the cannon while Scurvy, Sea-Legs, and Sweetwater head to the deck to try to find their attackers. As Scurvy is about to head right onto the deck, Captain Sweetwater stops him and takes out a stinkpot. He throws it onto the deck and the bomb smokes and sputters off a foul smell, and the pirates hear a man coughing loudly. Running onto the deck, they find no one near the stinkpot, but a knife narrowly misses Sea-Legs’ head. Looking up, the pirates see Tatsume climbing up the rigging.


Scurvy fires a flintlock pistol but misses. As Tatsume disappears in the ropes above, Scurvy and Captain Sweetwater head down to the starboard side of the boat, leaving Sea-Legs in the middle of the deck. Behind her, Hana creeps closer to the female pirate with her tessen in hand. Hana does a somersault and tries to overpower Sea-Legs but the pirate dodges, rolls to the side, and fires a pistol, hitting the ninja in the leg. Hana throws a glass egg at Sea-Legs, blinding the pirate, and rolls in quickly, whipping the fan blades of the tessen across her adversary’s neck. Red Sea-Legs falls like a stone, but as Hana tries to creep away, a loud boom is heard and Hana goes sprawling across the boat, a gaping hole in her torso. Pieces of metal rain down around the wounded ninja as she cries out in pain and dies quickly. Blue Cut-Throat has brought the cannon up to the deck, and as the smoke clears, he tries to reload the cannon, stuffing it with cutlery from the ship’s kitchen, intending to use it as grapeshot. However, several shurikens come from seemingly nowhere, disabling the pirate and knocking him to the ground. He looks up to see Tokugawa approaching quickly, swinging his kusarigama menacingly. With a quick flick of the wrist, the hook end of the double-sided weapon carves Cut-Throat’s chest open. Gasping for air, the pirate can only watch as the ninja brings the ball-end of the kusarigama down on his head, cracking it open. Red


Captain Sweetwater orders Scurvy to climb the rigging up after Tatsume, while he himself sets out to hunt any remaining ninjas. Scurvy clenches his cutlass in his teeth and quickly goes up the ropes nearly as quickly as the ninja. Tatsume is startled as Scurvy climbs into view but recovers and whips out his wakizashi. The two men begin to duel their way up to the crow’s nest, Tatsume’s lightning-quick blows being matched by Scurvy’s slower but more powerful strikes. The crow’s nest is cramped and small, leaving the ninja little room for his elegant maneuvers. The pirate lunges forward with his cutlass for a killing blow but Tatsume slashes across his wrist, nearly severing the limb. As Scurvy yells in pain, Tatsume lunges forward but is hit aside by the blunt wooden end of Scurvy’s boarding ax, wielded in his uninjured hand. The pirate scowls and raises his hand for another blow but Tatsume lunges forward and plunges the wakizashi right through his opponent’s neck. Red blood bubbles from the wound, but as the dying pirate falls, he wraps his strong arms around his killer and both pirate and ninja fall from the top of the crow’s nest to their death on the deck below. Red Blue


The pirate captain was unaware he was being followed by the two remaining ninjas. As he stumbled upon the corpses of Scurvy and Tatsume, a creaking was heard behind him. Whipping around, Captain Sweetwater tosses a grenado at his attackers. In the resulting blast, Tokugawa flew backward, dropping the kusarigama, and hit the ground dead. Blue Miyamoto Sashimi, however, rolled quickly away from the blast and charged forward with his poisoned daggers. Sweetwater grabs his boarding pike and lunges forward to keep his opponent at bay. Miyamoto throws one of the daggers but misses. As he tries to come charging in with the second dagger, the pirate captain twirls the boarding pike end over end and whacks the ninja over his head with the heavy blunt end of the pike. The ninja goes falling forward hard and busts his chin on the tough wooden deck. As Miyamoto looks up weakly, his mouth bleeding profusely and vision spinning, Sweetwater raises the boarding pike over his head triumphantly. The ninja raises one hand with a blowgun as a last attempt to kill the pirate, but Sweetwater steps on the assassin’s arm, forcing him to drop it. Then, Captain Sweetwater stabs Miyamoto Sashimi through his midsection and through the deck, embedding the weapon in the wood of the ship. Miyamoto is too weak to cry out in pain but he spits blood and bugs his eyes in terror right before his head tilts slowly to the side, eyes glazed and starry. Blue


Captain Sweetwater shoots the ninja in the head with his last flintlock pistol to make sure he’s dead, and then looks up at the night sky. The stars are bright, and while his crew is dead, the pirate knows of a port he could sail to where he could get a fresh crew. Looking around, he notices other Japanese ships docked in the port, and he wonders which one would suit him best to make the fastest escape.

WINNER: PIRATES

Expert's Opinion[]

While the supporters of the ninjas backed their stealth and use of guerilla tactics to confuse and surprise their opponents, the pirates' winning factor was their use of firearms and military knowledge of how to use them effectively and brutally in combat.

Pirates: Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue

Ninjas: Black2 Black2 Black2 Black2 Black2 Black2 Black2 Black2


A pirate ship sits moored in port at night. Most of the crew are away drinking in a tavern or cavorting with the local women. Only eight pirates, including the captain, stand guard over the ship. Suddenly, one of the pirates feels something prick his neck, and pulls out a fukiya dart. Seconds later, the pirate collapses from the dart's poison. Blue

Seconds later, a gunshot rings out from a building next to the docks- a ninja fired a tanegashima musket at one of the pirates, killing him with a shot to the chest Blue, before fleeing his sniping position and climbing onto the roof of the building.

"All hands, we be under attack, prepare to be boarded!", the pirate captain yelled.

The ninja that fired the sniper shot with the tanegashima jumped from the roof of the building to the mast of the pirate ship. Unfortunately for him, one of the pirates heard him and aimed his musket upwards, shooting the ninja off the mast. Black2

A second ninja, the one who fired the fukiya, climbed down the rear mast of the ship, and thrust his wakizashi into the back of a pirate Blue, before he lunged at a second pirate, only to find his blade blocked by a pirate's cutlass. The pirate then raised his flintlock pistol in his other hand and shot the surprised ninja in the face at point black range. Black2 Seconds later, another ninja tried to climb up the side of the ship's hull, having swam through the water, but was the pirate captain heard him, and fired his blunderbuss down at the ninja, blasting him off the ship.

Seconds later, the captain heard a deafening bang behind him as a ninja fired off his osutsu at close range, filling a pirate's chest with shot. Blue

"You'll pay for that ye bastard!", the captain yelled, drawing his cutlass and slashing at the ninja, slicing across his throat, killing the ninja in a spray of blood. Black2

To the right of the captain, a pirate armed with a boarding pike thrust at a ninja, who quickly jumped to the side, before drawing his bajozutsu and firing, killing his adversary. Blue

On the chaos that was the ship's deck, however ninja with bajozutsu was struck in he back of the head with a boarding axe, the blade burying itself in his skull and killing him instantly. Black2

At the same time, the pirate captain was cornered on the neck by two ninja, one armed with a wakizashi, and the other spinning the weight on a kusarigama around, preparing to attack. The pirate captain was not intimidated. Instead, he drew one of four flintlock pistols on his belt and shot the ninja who wielded the kusarigama in the chest, Black2 and then shot the second ninja with as second flintlock, causing him too to fall deck, dead. Black2

To the right of the pirate captain, a ninja fought with a pair of pirates. In spite of the overwhelming odds, the ninja was holding his own, blocking both of their strikes with his wakizashi. Suddenly, one of the pirates felt something graze his arm. He look to his right to see the lead ninja, who had thrown a shuriken to distract a pirate. The second ninja slashed with his wakizashi, slicing a pirate's head clean off. Blue

Seconds later, the pirate retaliated, thrusting his cutlass through the ninja's chest, causing him to fall to his knees, before landing face down on the wooden planking of the deck. Black2

The lead ninja drew an osutsu and fired, catching the second-to-last pirate in the chest with a blast, killing him instantly. Blue The ninja then tossed the osutsu aside and drew his wakizashi, facing the pirate captain.

The pirate captain lunged at the ninja leader with cutlass in hand, but the ninja blocked the strike, before retaliating with his wakizashi. The pirate responded with a thrust, which grazed the ninja's hand, causing him to lose grip of his wakizashi. The captain kicked the ninja's wakizashi overboard, before making a thrust with his cutlass.

The ninja blocked the blow with his tanto, before grabbing the pirate's arm and twisting with his other hand, dislocating the pirate's hand, causing him to drop his sword. The ninja went in for the kill with his tanto, but the pirate kicked him between the legs, stunning him, before drawing his naval dirk and thrusting it into the ninja's chest three times, killing him. Black2

Battle vs. Sicarii (by Elgb333)[]

This warrior won an Ancient Battle of the Year Award









In a bustling marketplace somewhere in Southern India. Five Sicarii carefully scout the place for any guards as night finally came. With their devious plan in motion, they lie in wait, perfectly blended in with the group. In the central plaza, a commotion was drawing the people in. A herald stood in the center, delivering the latest news and orders from the high-and-mighty.

That man was the Sicarii’s target. With only a few guards and servants guarding him, they were confident that this mission was as easy as a piece of challah. With their cloaks wrapped around their bodies, and the daggers snuggly fitted inside. They slowly approached the talking herald, pushing aside some of the mass of civilians blocking their view. As the latter was already finishing his speech, the slow march of the Sicarii suddenly transformed into a sprint. They were bloodlusted now, and as they come closer and closer to their target, there was no stopping them in sending that poor bastard to hell. But then, as they were just feet away from their target, the Herald suddenly fell on the ground twitching. His mouth was overflowing with spit and pain was invading his body. The guards quickly came to help him and pushed away the curious and anxious civilians. The Sicarii noticed a small dart on the man’s neck; a visible evidence of a nefarious assassination. Someone has beaten them to it.

With no choices left but to investigate, the Sicarii left the plaza in search of the killers. They searched from nook to nook and alleyways to alleyways. Watching every face of people they came across. Then, one of them noticed a man clad in Oriental garments hidden on top of a building. He was holding tube-like device that the Sicarii recognized as a blowdart. Knowing deep in their guts that the man was the nosy assassin, the Sicarii quickly bolted to his direction. The man, a ninja, couldn’t notice the army of madmen coming towards him.

One Sicarius stopped in his tracks and unwrapped his cloak. Grabbing a hard stone from the ground, he wrapped it by his cloak, and started swinging his weighted cloak like a sling. After gaining some momentum he lets the stone fly. The projectile travelled straight and hits ninja right between the eyes. Blind and losing consciousness from such a blow, the ninja loses balance and falls off the building; breaking his body and killing him.Darkred The crowd watches in horror of what was happening.

As the Sicarii came forward to look at the dead body, a ninja suddenly jumps from a building on top of them; yelling “banzai” as he and his tanto landed on a Sicarius’ back, killing him.Blue The Sicarii sees this and they lunge forward, intent on killing the bastard. The ninja on the other hand, raises his tanto and yells, and three other ninjas suddenly jumped out from on top of various buildings and simultaneously threw their shurikens at the Sicarii. Some of the shurikens found their mark, hitting two of the Sicarii’s and injuring them, and the ninjas used this to swiftly retreat to the opposite side of the market. The Sicarii, with their blood now boiling with rage, chased down these heathen Orientalists.

Both groups chased each other in a street full of people. Each of them bumped rudely on the civilians working in the place, knocked properties over, and disrespectfully pushed aside everyone in the intent of not losing their targets. As one ninja was trying his best to evade the Sicari in that warm clump of people; a Sicarius suddenly came out of nowhere from his left, and gutted him with his sica in front of horrified on lookers.Darkred His fellow ninja sees this and yells in anger, and he unsheathe his kusarigama and lets its ball fly. It hits the Sicarius straight in the face critically, and as the Sicarius held his now shattered skull with bits of matter and blood flowing from it, the ninja came forward and drove the sickle in his neck, putting an end to his mission.Blue Another Sicarius suddenly charged unto him from the back, but the ninja rolled away flawlessly from that attack. Using his ball and chain, he threw it wrappingly on the Sicarius leg, before pulling it and letting the Jew stumble flat on the ground. The ninja then charges in, and he further wraps the chain on the Sicarius arm and neck. With one swift motion, the ninja turns back and used the chain as leverage to judo throw the Sicarius, breaking his neck and killing him as his body landed in front of the ninja.Blue The latter then stabs the dead Sicarius on the back with the sickle just to make sure, and the kusarigama was proving its worth on the battle.

On the other side of the market, two ninjas and two Sicarii were also chasing each other to and fro. One ninja trips on the dry sand and lands hard on the ground like a playful little boy. Fearing greatly for his life as the Sicarii were swarming in front of him, the ninja throws all of his shurikens in a desperate attempt. The Sicarii on the other hand, with the tip of their cloaks now wrapped on their forearms like a Spanish matadero; covering their whole torso as a shield that blocked the shurikens. The ninja then tries to unleash his blowdart, but it too couldn’t penetrate the cloak. One Sicarius came in and kicks the ninja on the face Anderon Silva-style. And as the ninja falls with a broken face, the Sicarius knelt down and stabbed him multiple times like a madman.Darkred As he continues his bloody stabbings, the other Sicarius continued on with his chase on the remaining ninja. When the Sicarius finally grabs the ninja by his gappa, the ninja turns back and deviously threw a black egg filled with pounded glass on the Sicarius’ eyes; blinding him. The Sicarius yelled in pain as he tries to remove the glass, but the ninja grabs his tanto and pierced it into the Sicarius’ chest; silencing him, before the ninja pushed his carcass aside on the dusty street.Blue

The other Sicarius, who just have finished his rampage on the carcass, eyes the ninja and with a grin, covers his body with his cloak shield and his pugio dagger beneath it. The ninja then readies his martial stance with a tanto and black egg in each hand. He then throws several black eggs, but the cloak shielded the Sicarius. Seeing his eggs useless, the ninja angrily charges the Sicarius with his tanto, and the two were now locked in an intense knife battle. Each time the ninja slashes and thrusts, the Sicarius cloak covers his whole body, making his attacks very inaccurate. The ninja was now stuck being a bull chasing the graceful dance of a matador which is the Sicarius. The latter blocks some of the ninja’s attacks that created sparks of fury from their metal weapons, and intent on finishing it, the Sicarius threw his cloak on the ninja’s face; blinding him. The Sicarius then follows up by further wrapping the cloak on the ninjas head and neck; preventing him from breathing. As the ninja loses consciousness, the Sicarius decided that he wasn’t going to give him an easy death, so he slices the weakened ninja’s throat and left him gurgling on his own blood on the street.Darkred

Wiping the dust off of him, the Sicarius smiled at how his work was artistically done, not giving any care to the people who have just watched the bloody horror that has just unfolded. With the Sicarius now satisfied, he now sets his eyes in getting back to his headquarters. But then as he turns back, a bloodlusted ninja suddenly jumps in front of him with a tanto. The surprised Sicarius caught the ninja midair, and both warriors yelled each other with the objective of making the other die a horrible death for what they did to their comrades. The Sicarius on the other hand, managed to use all of his strength to throw the ninja away like a ragdoll. The ninja, undeterred, throws a shuriken at the Sicarius’ knee, making him kneel to the ground clutching it in pain. The ninja then unstraps his unholy kusarigama and throws the ball to the Sicarius. The latter sees this and attempts to dodge, and although the ball didn’t hit his face, the chain still turned in and wrapped around his neck. It made a crunching noise as it tightens. Seeing this, an evil look appeared on the ninja’s face, and with all of his strength, he dragged the Sicarius forcedly on the street. With all of his force, he slams the weakened Sicarius’ body into buildings, people, and booths with the chain still wrapped around his neck. Using the chain as a pulling rope, the ninja brings the Sicarius towards him like Hanzo Hashashi, before uppercutting him in the jaw which flung him to the air. The Sicarius fell hard on the street unconscious, and the ninja, thinking his opponent is dead, walks off knowing he has finished his work. But little did he know, that at his back, the Sicarius was trying his best to slowly and steadily get up like some Middle-Eastern Rocky Balboa. Years of brutality and training has made this Sicarius tough. He was an extremist, and it will take far more than flashy push-arounds to kill him. He will win this victory for his country… or die trying in the hands of God.

Next, the ninja couldn’t believe what just happened. All he can see now is a big sica sticking out of his chest; stabbed by one tenacious Sicarius from the back. As he spits blood from his mouth, the ninja kneels down dying, as the Sicarius pulls the sica back. The latter then appears in front of the dying ninja, and as the ninja looks up to his killer, the Sicarius lops off his head with one powerful swing.Darkred The Sicarius yells as the horrified people ran away tired of all of this madness. Hearing the footsteps of the now prepared guards, the Sicarius flees towards a boat waiting for him in the port.

Expert's Opinion[]

The battle was very close, with votes mounting in neck-to-neck. But the Sicarii slightly snatches victory, with the experts believing that his better and stealthier melee weapons, combined with his versatile cloak that can be used offensively and defensively, won him the day. Some would even say that the Sicarii was more experienced in the art of killing than the multitasking ninja.
