You'd turn it off when I was halfway across: Ninjas have no honour.


How is it honorable to kill your enemy with his back turned to you?

Where is the honor in poisoning / stealthy killing?  Ninjas have no honor... subby mistakes them for a Samurai

Isn't the point of being a ninja so that you don't have to respect all the codes of honor that samurai and regular soldiers supposedly have to obey?
This ^^

Ninja were clans of assassins.  They did everything BUT fight honorably.  They were to be killed on sight as they were outlaws.

Incorrect...

The ninja were often samurai themselves.  Many were from remote mountainous areas (but not all).  The Katori Shinto Ryu has within its syllabus teachings of ninja methods.  It is a very famous school of samurai warrior skills.

One of the gates of the Edo castle is known as Hanzo's gate, and it is called that because it was guarded by the famous Hatori Hanzo, from the Iga province, a known ninja.  If the Shogun himself would have a known ninja protect a major gate of his castle, then it is hard to make the claim that ninja were universally outlawed.  Ninja were employed quite often in many capacities: body guards, intelligence gatherers, forward observers, to disrupt enemy morale, and as assassins, though this was really their least valuable skill.  It was the Iga and Koga ninja who helped the Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa escape through the mountains following Oda Nobunaga's death.  It was Oda Nobunaga who despised the Iga and Koga regions, and some of that bias more than likely is responsible for many of the misconceptions about the ninja.

Not that they were all rainbows and light, but neither were the Samurai staunch defenders of all that was holy and light.  History is complicated.

I would say there is no honor in beating a sleeping man at all, whether or not he has nunchucks.

/who sleeps with nunchucks?

While everyone focuses on the fact that ninjas don't have honor, I'd like to point out that they didn't use nunchucks.

/neat shoes, though

Subby has missed the point of "ninja".

One thing I could never stand was to see a filthy, dirty old drunkie, howling away at the filthy songs of his fathers and going blurp blurp in between as it might be a filthy old orchestra in his stinking, rotten guts. I could never stand to see anyone like that, whatever his age might be, but more especially when he was real old like this one was.
