Ninjas cannot boost the damage output of elemental attacks outside of the Wind element through Air Knife, and therefore have no way to boost the damage of elemental scrolls used through the Throw command, unless they sacrifice their second slot for Equip Rods. Equipping a magic skillset can help alleviate Ninjas' low Magic Power.
The Ranger ability Rapid Fire allows a Ninja to attack eight times each turn thanks to Dual Wield, making it a good candidate for the secondary ability.
Mastering Ninja in all four characters in the mobile and Steam version earns the player the achievement "Ninja Legend".
Equipment - Short Swords, Knives, Boomerangs, Light Helmets, Clothes, Armlets
Throw lets the player choose an item and the ninja will throw it at the target. Rarer items usually equal more damage. First Strike increases the chance of the party receiving a preemptive attack. Dual Wield is the classic ninja ability, letting the ninja hold a weapon in each hand, meaning they attack twice.
Upon mastery, Freelancers and Mimes gain the Ninja's base Strength, Agility and Stamina unless they already have a higher base from another mastered job. They also gain First Strike and Dual-Wield as innate abilities.
Use the confusion of a smoke bomb to escape from most enemies without them even noticing.
Lets any job use the Smoke command. Functions exactly like the Thief'sFlee command.
Level 2 Ability
Create illusions to absorb two direct physical attacks.
Lets any job use the Image command. Functions exactly like the BlinkWhite Magic, except no MP is consumed. Due to a minor bug in the coding, it is possible to stack this ability and have a total of three illusions, if the Image command is used after having lost one illusion, i.e. after having absorbed one physical attack. The third illusion cannot be seen, but it is there. It is not possible to stack up to four or five illusions. Trying this will reset the character to two illusions.
