The Ninja is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI, and is one of the most dangerous enemies on the Floating Continent.


Ninja is first encountered in the Cave to the Sealed Gate, on the eastern edge of the Gestahlian Empire. The player must press the right-hand switch adjacent to the save point chamber in the middle of the cave system to fight a solo Ninja, and steal a pair of Angel Wings. This is the player's first opportunity to obtain this relic (excluding the Jidoor auction).

Every turn Ninja have a 66% chance of throwing a Flame Scroll, Water Scroll or Lightning Scroll, doing several hundred damage to the party. Furthermore, Ninja often attack in pairs, and thus can quickly decimate the party. They also have a 33% chance of countering any attack with Stealth, granting Vanish status. They are weak to Lightning.

Ninja may drop a Fuma Shuriken, a powerful throwing weapon for this point in the game.


Thundara spells and Gau's Aspiran Rage work well, as does Shadow throwing Lightning Scrolls himself. Casting Death on Ninja can be very effective.
