The Ninja is a job in Bravely Default.
Liberally taken from the classic Ninja job in Final Fantasy lore, the Ninja in Bravely Default is a class that uses its dual-wielding enhancements to make it a very offensive-focused class. Much of its abilities involve the evasion of attacks using ninjutsu and countering with both weapons. The Ninja's only specialized weapon is the dagger, and its low HP and defensive affinities (E across the board) lead it to be a glass-cannon sort of class that can be very fragile. With its evasion techniques, however, the Ninja provides a form of survivability in order to circumvent these shortcomings.
As expected from its name, characters that are Ninjas wear Japanese-inspired outfits, with the females wearing wrapped kimonos and males wearing traditional ninja gi and oni masks.
