Top 10 Most Deadly Ninja Weapons


Have you ever asked yourself: what weapons did ninjas use? There have been many brutally effective ninja tools used throughout history, from the blowgun referred to as the Fukiya, the Bo staff, battle rings called Kakute or the weighted chain referred to as the Kusari-fundo. Each of these brutally effective ninja weapons was used for espionage, sabotage, assassination and guerrilla warfare in feudal Japan. WatchMojo counts down ten of the most iconic ninja weapons.

  1. Not many channels on YouTube get what a shuriken is right. You done well.
    Simply put it’s a thrown weapon. Doesn’t necessarily have to be bladed.

    1. Ráguila Also think of them as spies. They sneak up and attack at a very
      short range (Not always melee but you know what I mean). Such big blades
      aren’t really they’re style

  2. OMG is this list full of bullshit, you got all that from anime and folklore
    didn’t you? And please try using Kama in a real weapon fight, and see how
    many holes you poke into yourself, ask any farm worker they will tell you
    “don’t ever ever ever swing a Kama!!!” with total seriousness. That battle
    royal movie actually use the Kama correct, but in that range against a
    disarmed opponent, what won’t kill?

  3. The Ninja-to, despite popular belief ninjas didn’t use Katanas, they were
    long, bulky, heavy and pretty much only Samurai used them as a Ninja-to is
    smaller and lighter and if you want to go a step further there is the Tanto
    mostly used by Kunoichi as they were very easy to conceal. There is the
    Neko-te which was also used by Kuniochi which are basically like Freddy
    Krugger’s 4 knife glove yikes. Oh and Caltraps as well, while not very
    deadly as weapons go but leave enough of them and someone stands on them
    well use your imagination.
