Able to infiltrate even the most heavily guarded fortress without being detected. If they are caught, they may trick their pursuers by mysteriously swapping places with a log. They may be portrayed as cutting down any opposition with superhuman swiftness. Traditionally dressed in black bodysuits with black masks or veils to hide their faces (or sometimes in white). They are the ultimate spies and assassins, gifted with their own deadly magic and martial arts. Born in hidden villages, they are trained from birth to obey nindo, an alternative Code of Honor to bushido; to show no pain, feel no emotion, and remain loyal to their clans under pain of death — or the third code of getting as much money as possible.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Or so popular legend has it. While ninjas did indeed exist, their reputation for invisibility and infiltration more likely stemmed from their willingness to dress as members of a lower social class when no one else in Japan would consider doing such a thing. Their "invisibility" was part psychological in cause — by dressing as a peasant, they were ignored and dismissed, or never even noticed at all, by the upper classes, a useful thing despite the oft fierce travel restrictions on the lower classes. Superior knowledge of survival skills, a lot of actual stealth, poisons, assassination techniques and unorthodox tactics (added to the fact that the ninjas actively encouraged the spread of rumors of their magical abilities) were the most important though. A popular myth states that ninjas came from lower classes (at least compared to the samurai) and they were often hired to do the dirty deeds honorable samurai would not do, but in reality ninjas were usually samurai, or in rare cases, mercenaries hired by samurai. Ninjas were mainly deployed for espionage, sabotage, and sometimes assassination.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Ninjas were also quite skilled with a variety of tools, such as the multipurpose kunai. Plainly put, while a stereotypical ninja would jump around on rooftops in ridiculous clothing, a real ninja most likely would simply infiltrate the household staff and poison a meal. Among many other things, a good ninja always knew where his sanjaku tenugui was.
The "classic" black ninja costume is, in fact, the outfit worn by stagehands in traditional Japanese theatre. Japanese stagehands are frequently in full view on the stage, but the audience was meant to ignore them and thus they are considered "invisible" by the audience. It became the practice to hide ninja characters in full sight by putting them in the same outfits as the stagehands, for a startling effect when characters were suddenly attacked by "thin air". The stereotypical black "ninja outfit" would be actually horribly conspicuous, even at night. For night stealth, real ninjas wore dark blue outfits; someone dressed in solid black will stand out like a silhouette. Usually, though, ninjas simply dressed like ordinary people (peasants, monks, merchants, scholars, etc). That way, they can move about unnoticed, day or night. Even the split or toe-divided boots which are a trademark of the ninja costume are actually an Anachronism Stew: toe-divided shoes or ''jika-tabi'' were actually invented in the 20th century, and only some modern ninjutsu schools would adopt them for practicality reasons.
Female ninja are often called kunoichi in a pun on the kanji for woman (女, onna/jo), which looks like it's made up of ku (く), no (ノ), and ichi (一). Kunoichi are often portrayed in media as experts in seduction and poisons. Or both at the same time. Kunoichi are also often seen in outfits that combine a hodgepodge of traditional clothing, fishnet, bared skin, and strategically-placed weapons. There may be some Truth in Fiction, as real-life kunoichi would often use their attractiveness to lower the guards of their male targets in order to assassinate them in privacy or bribe information. The most common weapon for them is twin knives, which they Dual Wield and have at least one of them in a Reverse Grip.
In some works of fiction, ninja are divided into three ranks: genin (lower), chūnin (middle), jōnin (upper).
Legendary ninja include Fuuma Kotaro, Hattori Hanzo and Sarutobi Sasuke. During the Sengoku Jidai, the most prolific shinobi were of the Koka or Koga province and the Iga province, rugged, secretive clans notorious for guerilla warfare, unorthodox tactics and selling these services to warlords. Their mysterious histories and supposed rivalry have been popular fodder for Japanese fiction for years. While commonly thought to have originated in Japan, ninjas may have originated in China, and the idea and practice later spread to Japan. Historically, the word "ninja" was not generally used; in Japanese historical documents, shinobi was often used.note Strictly speaking, the word 'ninja' wasn't proper Japanese at all, originally; according to The Other Wiki, it comes from an alternate on reading of the characters 忍の者 (shinobi-no-mono, "man in hiding/in shadow"), making 'ninja' a sort of pun. It appears to have originated as slang or code during the Meiji period, possibly in connection to the Satsuma Rebellion.
In American movies, especially the ones from the '80s with "ninja" in the titles, only the hero ninja and the Big Bad ninja make any pretense of stealth or invisibility — and sometimes, not even them. Any underling ninjas will be the class of mooks known as Highly Visible Ninja. In the late 20th Century, they became the arch-enemies of Pirates, for no reason other than the Rule of Cool.
One of the earliest Japanese cultural tropes to make it to the West, where it has now branched out into the McNinja franchise. Look for ninja to make use of the Smoke Out, the Flash Step, the Fuuma Shuriken, Kite Riding and the aforementioned Ninja Log.
Compare The Hashshashin, the Middle-Eastern counterpart. They're likely to be Stealthy Mooks. See Ninja Tropes for everything related to ninjas.

It took four seasons before Samurai Jack fought a ninja, but he did — a robot ninja at that. It was, at least, a stealthy one, made completely invisible whenever it stood in shadows. And then Jack revealed he could do the same trick with sunlight, leading to one of the most visually incredible fights in the series (which is saying something), as the series is made of cool.
Of course, Jack himself is both a Ninja and a Samurai. His skills in Ninjutsu came in handy when he had to go through the labyrinth.

Samurai Shodown had a number of them, the most typical one being Hattori Hanzo.
Hanzo also appears as a ninja in the Samurai Warriors games. In the first game he was contrasted with Sanada Yukimura in a "ninja vs. samurai" way, but in the second game he's contrasted with Fuuma Kotaro, another ninja, in a similar way to their World Heroes counterparts. The other ninja is Kunoichi, an original character based on the Sanada Ten who supposedly did Yukimura's dirty work for him (subverting his own archetype).
Samurai Warriors 2 adds Fuuma Kotaro and Nene, although the latter is a samurai's wife whose "ninja-ness" is in being a gameplay replacement for the removed Kunoichi. (acknowledged by Hanzo, who, if they meet in one stage, would comment on her having gotten stranger, "since the last time we met.")
In one Warriors Orochi gaiden mission, Kunoichi and Nene face each other on the battlefield, and Kunoichi points this out: "Well, if it isn't my Spiritual Successor!" (exact words)
Hattori Hanzo was an actual legendary figure in Japanese history, rumored to have been a ninja as well as a pretty decent soldier.

Digimon has a number of ninja-inspired monsters.
Two notable examples are Ninjamon and Kougamon, his Palette Swap. It should be noted, in Japan, he and Kougamon both take their names from regions and styles associated strong with the ninja arts. Other examples include:
Falcomon from Digimon Savers, who's a rather straight example of this trope, along with his evolutionary stages. His Champion form, Peckmon, is a Ninja Ostrich.
Digimon Adventure 02 has Shurimon.
Monitormon from Digimon Xros Wars, which beats out all other examples in ridiculous by being ninjas with televisions for heads.
Finally, there's several digimon conflated with ninja in the american version, but these are more straight-up samurai.

Kirino and her village from Ai Kora. Kirino herself doesn't exactly /hide/ the fact she's a ninja, but she doesn't announce it to the world, either. She's another subversion of the ninja attire stereotypes, in that she wears ninja clothes in her village, and context-appropriate clothes everywhere else.

Bleach: The Onmitsukido is an entire organization of ninja comprised of several families who serve the Shihouin Clan. Yoruichi was the 22nd head of her family and the first woman in its history to become head of the Keigun (lit. "Punishment Squad"). When she and her friend, Kisuke Urahara, defected from Soul Society, she was succeeded by her protege, Sui-Feng, as both head of the Keigun and as captain of the Gotei's 2nd division. Making her the first member in the Feng Clan's history to ever attain a position of power; in addition to being the second woman to ever hold both titles.

Usagi Yojimbo, being set in feudal Japan, frequently features ninja. They range from enemies to allies of Usagi, with three main clans present: the Neko clan which is feline, the Mogura clan which is comprised of anthropomorphic moles and the Komori clan, which features razor-winged bats. And of course, he occasionally teams up with a certain family of Kamé ninja mentioned below.

In Girls und Panzer, the girls of Hippo Team are mentioned as having taken ninjutsu as an elective before the start of the series and they get some mileage out of that training in their sensha-do matches. Taking advantage of their StuG III's low profile, they regularly engage in ambush tactics and camo to score some impressive kills; using their ill-placed sashimonos to great advantage against St. Gloriana in their practice match, burying themselves in the snow to get a kill on Pravda's flag tank in their match and using ninja camouflage blankets in the film twice in the theme park to great effect.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has the Yiga Clan, who are a group of rogue Sheikah that dedicate themselves to killing Link and Zelda in order to allow Ganon to take over. They typically wear red and black costumes, but can jump an unsuspecting player by disguising themselves as civilians. The Yiga are somewhat of a reconstruction of traditional ninja, as while they wear noticeable clothing, they don't merely stand around conspicuously; they either appear suddenly in ambush, or disguise themselves effectively to look like ordinary people (although a savvy player can learn to recognize a disguised Yiga from a distance).

Change 123, in its later volumes, introduces an all-female ninja clan whose members infiltrate into Motoko's school to recruit Motoko (or, rather, to recruit her alternate badass personalities). Unlike typical Highly Visible Ninjas, they actually blend into the normal world, wear plain clothes (even when they're in their ninja village), and use weapons which are disguised as normal everyday objects. Also, the words "ninja" and "shinobi" are mostly avoided. Instead, they talk about "our clan/family", "our business", "family business" and similar.

Kabuto, the main villain of Tokyo Mater has ninja racing cars for henchmen. He summons them to distract Mater about halfway through the short, only for them all to be knocked out by Dragon McQueen. At the end of the short, Mater wins the race, and since Kabuto threatened him that if he lost the race, he will strip Mater of his modifications, when Kabuto lost, he is stripped of his own modifications, and is laughed at by his own ninjas who then turn to the side of Mater, now "King of all drift racers."

For instance, the Marvel Universe villain clan, The Hand, cropped up then, starting out as a bunch of sinister assassins-for-hire, rapidly proving to be sinister nihilistic assassins-for-hire with some mystical trimmings, and eventually evolving into world-threatening mystical all-purpose nihilist killers. Also during that period and in the same comics, Frank Miller effectively changed Daredevil into a good ninja.

Similar to MythBusters, the show Fight Science also did some work with ninja (also special ops of various nations, and fighters from other schools).
They proved that ninjutsu really does have a deadly punch (compressing the rib cage enough to cause fatal damage to the heart).

The sequel has the Ninja and Shinobi as the same unit (it's called a ninja but refers to himself as both when clicked) taking over all aspects of spying, sabotage and assassination. The Geisha still exists but is also given a heavy nerf; while she can never be caught and killed during a failed mission, she's much more expensive, easier to spot than a ninja and just as vulnerable to enemy Metsuke. Also, the building that recruits geisha also allows for recruitment of rank 2 ninja, which when constructed in a ninja speciality province like Iga allows for rank 4 ninja straight off the bat, which horribly outclass the Geisha. Battlefield ninja, called Kisho Ninja, also exist, and are the speciality of the Hattori and Tokugawa clans.
Fall of the Samurai flips the whole thing around a bit further. It doesn't even have ninja agents, instead having the shinobi agent fulfill the same role as the ninja has in the base game. It really doesn't differ all that much from it's core game counterpart, the core difference being that it has a slightly different skill tree and retainers. Oh, and the kisho ninja units are still around and recruitable by traditionally focused daimyos.

Bloody Roar:
Bakuryu becomes the chief resident ninja of the series from BR2 onwards and has the type of speed and versatility one would expect — from freely teleporting around the ring, to wall running.
Kohryu is a bonus character, who was introduced in BR3 and is essentially a Moveset Clone of Bakuryu. Though he lacks his ability to Wall Run, nor can he create body doubles. Kohryu was given unique abilities of his own, such as being able to temporarily immobilize his opponents with a stun beam, and fire his gauntlet as a multi-hitting projectile.

The Equalist chi-blockers in Legend of Korra are stealthy mask-wearing fighters that use a pressure points to disable benders alng with bolas and smoke bombs to throw their opponents off balance. True to the idea of ninja, they also don't care about fighting fair, though when your opponents have Elemental Powers you need every advantage you can get.

Samurai Warriors 2 adds Fuuma Kotaro and Nene, although the latter is a samurai's wife whose "ninja-ness" is in being a gameplay replacement for the removed Kunoichi. (acknowledged by Hanzo, who, if they meet in one stage, would comment on her having gotten stranger, "since the last time we met.")
In one Warriors Orochi gaiden mission, Kunoichi and Nene face each other on the battlefield, and Kunoichi points this out: "Well, if it isn't my Spiritual Successor!" (exact words)

Virtually everything about Ninjala revolves around this trope; fashion, culture, and especially the titular sport. An organization is built with the sole purpose of preserving ninja history and the sport and the scientifically enhanced Bubblegum serves to unlock the potential of any kid with ninja blood.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a Commandos Spiritual Sequel set in 17th century Japan. Three of the available player characters (out of five: the two remaining are a samurai and an old marksman) fit the trope:
Hayato is a typical ninja, since his role (both in gameplay and in-universe) is stealth and infiltration. He's masked and his abilities include attacking a single target with a Ninjato (on the ground or by jumping from above), throwing a shuriken, or climbing on roofs with a grappling hook.
Aiko fits well the female archetype. She can wear disguises (especially a geisha costume) and distract enemies; she also can temporarily blind them with sneezing powder and stab them with her hairpin. Like Hayato, she also has a grappling hook.
Yuki is a borderline example. She's not supposed be a ninja in-universe (she's a kind of vagabond teenage girl living as a trapper and thief), but her abilities fits the trope too, since she can stab enemies with a small knife, set traps, use distraction (with a flute), and pick pockets. She also has a grappling hook.

Ninjas in Cloud of Sparrows are rather more plausible than most other examples. They are very stealthy and good at dodging pursuit, but dress in normal clothes and are primarily employed as stealthy assassins and spies. Kudo, one of the two main ninjas in the book, also indulges in a spot of Clark Kenting. He is also revealed to have poorer reflexes than gunslinger Matthew Stark.

Altaïr from Assassin's Creed I fits the MO of a historical ninja in that he is an assassin who escaped notice by blending in with a crowd, but lives in crusade-era Israel rather than feudal Japan. Ironically the historical Ḥashshāshīn, of which he is a member, acted far more like media depictions of ninja than actual Japanese ninja did.
Ezio in Assassin's Creed II is more or less the same, only he can swim, is Italian and FABULOUS!!

In Shogun: Total War you can hire both ninja and shinobi as strategic units. The game makes a distinction between ninja (who assassinate enemy characters) and shinobi (who are spies, saboteurs and seditionists), although historicaly there is no such distinction. The ninja is also horribly outclassed at his job by the Legendary Geisha unit, an ultimate assassin which gets close to the target in her role as a geisha before killing them with concealed weapons, probably much closer to how real-life ninja worked. The expansion also allowed you to train small units of "battlefield ninja", tiny but elite squads which used stealth on the battlefield to get close to the enemy general.
The sequel has the Ninja and Shinobi as the same unit (it's called a ninja but refers to himself as both when clicked) taking over all aspects of spying, sabotage and assassination. The Geisha still exists but is also given a heavy nerf; while she can never be caught and killed during a failed mission, she's much more expensive, easier to spot than a ninja and just as vulnerable to enemy Metsuke. Also, the building that recruits geisha also allows for recruitment of rank 2 ninja, which when constructed in a ninja speciality province like Iga allows for rank 4 ninja straight off the bat, which horribly outclass the Geisha. Battlefield ninja, called Kisho Ninja, also exist, and are the speciality of the Hattori and Tokugawa clans.
Fall of the Samurai flips the whole thing around a bit further. It doesn't even have ninja agents, instead having the shinobi agent fulfill the same role as the ninja has in the base game. It really doesn't differ all that much from it's core game counterpart, the core difference being that it has a slightly different skill tree and retainers. Oh, and the kisho ninja units are still around and recruitable by traditionally focused daimyos.

The Discworld has a few ninja, and some reflections on the art of stealth:
In Thief of Time, the Monastery of Wen the Eternally Surprised has ninja-like martial artist monks working as Time Police. Lu-Tze is highly contemptuous of anyone running around rooftops in black outfits ("others trained them, I just tried to undo the damage"), and his own strategy of passing unnoticed as a humble sweeper is actually closer to the real ninja.
Similarly, in Interesting Times, we first see Highly Visible Ninja in the imperial palace of the Agatean Empire, working as bodyguards. (They're apparently pretty good fighters, but much too flamboyant and not as good as a bunch of very, very experiencednote i.e. geriatric barbarian heroes.) Then, later, protagonist Rincewind discovers that if he just wears a farmer's hat; nobody looks at him.
The Assassin's Guild of Ankh-Morpork are all but Ninja in name, though they lack any pseudo-Japanese trappings. They wear all black, the kind of black that stands out in the middle of the night, and are trained in poisons, hidden daggers, and climbing. However, the really smart Vetinari wears green and grey when intending to be stealthy as a student. The trope is also subverted in that quite a few Assassins never actually seem to "inhume" anyone, at least after their graduation exercise, preferring to use their conspicuous black clothing to attract women and their obvious presence to act as a political lever.

Final Fantasy XIV blends the pop culture portrayal of ninja with reality, as while they utilize the supernatural powers of ninjutsu, when it comes to espionage, the Doman ninja you interact with simply dress as commonfolk, generally donning their traditional garb only if they know they're going to end up in a combat situation. The sole one among their number who goes about perpetually in uniform is Yugiri Mistwalker, presumably because being an Au Ra (A race that only recently began immigrating to Eorzea), she's liable to draw attention to herself regardless of how she dresses.

Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell is repeatedly confused for one by guards. Might go to the point of a running gag as whenever the topic is brought up in conversation the other guard calls them an idiot saying they don't exist. Possibly played for laughs as interrogating a certain guard will prompt him to ask you to kill him with your blowpipe. At one point in the first game, Lambert explicitly refers to Sam as a "SIGINT Ninja".

Senran Kagura is a series where sexy shinobi-in-training schoolgirls from different schools fight each others, and is some strange blend of comedy and drama : in spite of being heavy on the fanservice side (the series is marketed as cute & sexy hyper-breasted battle action), the characters are deadly serious about their shinobi duty, some of the backstories are quite dark and the worldview is rather truthful to the hard-boiled world one would expect from a ninja world.

Oogway's Little Owl: Taylor is being trained to be one by Oogway and Shifu, combining an owl's natural proclivity for stealth-hunting with a penchant for throwing knives, and a dash of Terror Hero. It's also pointed out that ninja are native to Japan, while the story takes place in China, but it's handwaved by explaining that Oogway has been all over the world, encountering the ninja on a trip to Japan.

The Metal Gear series has Cyborg Ninjas in most of the Solid series. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance allows you to play as one.
You can also play a set of VR missions as Raiden in cyber-ninja form in MGS: Substance.

James Bond:
The popularity of ninja in Western media may have started with the Bond film You Only Live Twice from 1967. Most of those ninja were depicted as being more like members of an elite government special forces unit than invisible assassins, however. (Except for the one who killed the Bond girl, of course.)
In Licence to Kill it is revealed that Hong Kong Narcotics employs ninjas as special agents. (Given that the Special Duties Unit of the Hong Kong Police Force were trained by the SAS before the colony was handed back to China, this may not be as far fetched as it first seems.)

Soul Eater's Black Star and Tsubaki. Black☆Star is your typical Highly Visible variety, and somehow manages to make a big deal of being 'stealthy' even when he bothers to try. Tsubaki is a member of a clan of ninja-associated Living Weapons (kunai, (big) shuriken, smoke-bomb, camouflage, katana, chain-scythe) and frequently has to remind her meister how he should be behaving. Such as the fact that telling your target you're here to assassinate them is a bad idea.

In Exalted, each type of Exalt has at least one caste that focuses on stealth, deception, and similar acts of larceny. Sidereals fit the ninja archetype best, though, what with their being snapped up and subjected to intensive training within days of Exaltation, their undisputed mastery of martial arts, their residence in a hidden community that most in Creation can't even find, much less enter, and that whole business with the Arcane Fate that makes them all but impossible to track or keep records on (or even, for that matter, remember clearly). The term 'fate-ninja' really sums them up very nicely.

Like their game counterparts, Koga and his daughter Janine in Pokémon Adventures are modeled after stereotypical ninja, but the author obviously had some fun making their techniques even more ninja-esque, such as outfitting their Pokeballs into shuriken. At one point, Janine even uses hand seals, presumably as signals to command her Grimer without having to actually say anything out loud.

Advanced V.G. has a pair of ninja waitresses:
Chiho Masuda is a rogue ninja, who wants to live a normal life, as a highschool girl. Which is why she fled her family to join the VG Tournament: in hopes of winning the prize money to fund her new life.
Her cousin, Kyoko Kirishima, is from one of the Masuda's branch families. She's been ordered to find and capture Chiho, or kill her if she refuses to comply. Kyoko succeeds in tracking her down and defeats her but she lets Chiho go, instead.

Fire Emblem Fates has ninjas as a Hoshidan-exclusive unit class; they're fast and frail, use hidden weapons to attack, and can pick locks and open treasure chests, making them similar to Thieves from previous Fire Emblem games. The most prominent ones are Kaze, Saizo (Kaze's older brother), Kagero, and Asugi (Saizo's son/Kaze's nephew, with both Kagero and a Female Avatar among his prospect mothers); with the exception of Kaze (who follows the Player Character regardless of what path they choose), they will only join the party on the Birthright (and Revelation) path.

One-Punch Man has Speed-of-Sound Sonic, who, as his name makes redundantly clear, can move at the speed of sound, and is an all around capable enough fighter to be a match for some S-class heroes. Unfortunately for him, his appearances mostly end with him being thoroughly thrashed by Saitama.
Later chapters reveal that there is an entire village dedicated to training children into Ninja who sell their services, and the S-Class hero Flashy Flash as well as Sonic were products of this village. It is run by a Mysterious Leader, who is built up to be light-years ahead of Sonic and Flash in skill...and gets off-screened by Saitama.

The Complete Adventurer expansion for Dungeons & Dragons (3.5e) features the Ninja base class. They are a viable alternative to the traditional Rogue, trading in more efficient sneak attacks and extra skill points for supernatural dodging and, at higher levels, the ability to turn invisible or incorporeal for a short duration.
The 3.5 splatbook Tome of Battle gives us the Swordsage, a highly versatile class that can fulfill many roles in a party, their most common role being that of a secondary meleer. They have plenty of maneuvers to help with whatever concept you could try to make, and one of the easiest is that of being a ninja (Shadow Hand maneuvers, specifically; things like shadow teleportation and precise, crippling strikes are the meat of the discipline). There's even a prestige class for them, called the Shadow Sun Ninja.
Ninja have, in various forms, been present as a class throughout several editions. 1st Edition AD&D featured them as a complicated 'secret' class you had alongside your public class (on pain of execution if you were revealed), 2nd Edition retooled them as a more standard class, 3E/3.5 featured several ninja Prestige Classes as well as the aforementioned 3.5 base class, and 4E had ninja as the name for a suggested build for the assassin class.

In no particular order from Mortal Kombat: Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Reptile, Noob Saibot, Kitana, Mileena, Jade, Chameleon, Khameleon, Cyrax, Sektor, Smoke, Ermac, Rain and Frost. Fifteen ninjas in the course of one very ninja-happy series.
Technically, Sub-Zero's clan are the Chinese warriors that Japanese ninja ripped off, and they hate being called ninja. Not that it stops anyone...
Technically, only Scorpion is a ninja. Sub-Zero, Noob Saibot, Cyrax, Sektor, Smoke, and Frost all belong to the Lin Kuei. Jade is Kitana's bodyguard, who is a princess, and Mileena is a clone, both of whom would likely be trained in some form of self defense. Rain, also royalty, is also likely trained in self defense and Reptile is another bodyguard. Ermac might count just from the sheer amount of souls he is made with, probability might dictate one of them was a ninja in life. Most of them are made fairly moot anyways, as only Scorpion and the Lin Kuei are from Earthrealm.

Genji from Overwatch is a Cyber Ninja, though his gameplay is surprisingly close to accurate depiction of ninjas: really dependant on stealth (without having a skill that makes himself invisible in naked eyes, thus depending on finding a hiding spot and coming out in the right time) and eliminating stray targets and then swiftly getting out before being detected.

Akira from Mai-HiME and Mai-Otome uses a lot of classic ninja tricks and tools, including shuriken, kunai and smoke bombs. She also uses the title "Secret Ninja", while fighting in disguise (which doesn't fool anybody). Curiously, sometimes she's seen interacting with other shadowy kuroko-wearers, implying that she indeed is a genuine ninja from a genuine ninja clan, even though that never becomes a major plot-point.

One of the more interesting portrayals in recent memory comes from a level of the video game Elite Beat Agents. It starts as a subversion: Ken Ozu, lazy heir to a car company, is forced into a ninja outfit by his father and forced to retrieve stolen automobile plans from a rival company, despite having little to no talent. After this, however, the player's success (or lack of) determines what happens. If the player fares poorly, it remains a subversion, as Ken fails miserably whenever called upon to use his "ninja powers". If the player does well, however, it becomes a Double Subversion, as Ken runs smoothly through the "classic" ninja abilities and completes his mission.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender, Katara and Zuko dress in all black and stealth their way around several Fire Nation navy commands, seen by no one until they attack, in order to get information on the man that killed Katara's mother. It's all kinds of bad-ass.
The Dai Li are Earthbending Ninjas. While they don't do the all black attire normally attributed to the profession, the training and combat style they use fits the bill perfectly. Unlike most Earthbenders, or any capable bender in the series, they use hidden weapons and misdirection in their combat style.
Also, Zuko in Blue Spirit mode. Silent, stealthy, wears all black, incredibly badass, one of the only characters to be actually deadly in each appearance... total ninja right there.
The Equalist chi-blockers in Legend of Korra are stealthy mask-wearing fighters that use a pressure points to disable benders alng with bolas and smoke bombs to throw their opponents off balance. True to the idea of ninja, they also don't care about fighting fair, though when your opponents have Elemental Powers you need every advantage you can get.

Similarly, in Interesting Times, we first see Highly Visible Ninja in the imperial palace of the Agatean Empire, working as bodyguards. (They're apparently pretty good fighters, but much too flamboyant and not as good as a bunch of very, very experiencednote i.e. geriatric barbarian heroes.) Then, later, protagonist Rincewind discovers that if he just wears a farmer's hat; nobody looks at him.

The Legend of Zelda has the Sheikah; an ancient, technologically advanced ninja clan dedicated to protecting the goddess Hylia and her descendents who would later became the Hylian royal family. They were skilled in both magic and hand-to-hand combat, while also using weapons such as kodachi, naginatas, kunai, and Deku Nut smoke bombs. Most of them were assumed to have died out during the Hylian Civil War (or even earlier) other than a few notable examples such as Impa and Sheik (who was Zelda in disguise) in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild they finally make a comeback although they choose to live normal lives at this point.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has the Yiga Clan, who are a group of rogue Sheikah that dedicate themselves to killing Link and Zelda in order to allow Ganon to take over. They typically wear red and black costumes, but can jump an unsuspecting player by disguising themselves as civilians. The Yiga are somewhat of a reconstruction of traditional ninja, as while they wear noticeable clothing, they don't merely stand around conspicuously; they either appear suddenly in ambush, or disguise themselves effectively to look like ordinary people (although a savvy player can learn to recognize a disguised Yiga from a distance).

Although Another Note does not actually describe Beyond Birthday as being a ninja, his way of doing things is certainly very ninja-like. He makes use of toxins (anesthetizing his victims with poison before actually killing them), sneaks into his victims' homes, hides in plain sight, eavesdrops on conversations, evidently works quickly, and takes on the role of an "unprivate detective" to get the families of his victims (and the Final Girl) to trust him.

Ryuusei no Rockman (a.k.a. Mega Man Star Force) has an entire episode devoted to Ninja. Highly Visible Ninja with all the typical tricks. Though, the guy teaching the main cast the tricks of the trade is damn good at it. They add -de osaru on the end of every one of their sentences...and apparently, the art of ninjutsu was developed by people from the ancient civilization of Mu. One of the Ooparts is a Shuriken, and Mega Man can take on the form of a ninja... of wood.

The village of Mizuho in Tales of Symphonia and its successor the village of Japoni from Tales of Phantasia are hidden ninja villages. Sheena, one of your party members, is from the former, and in the remake of Phantasia, you can get Suzu in your party from the latter.

In Transformers: The★Headmasters, Sixshot is presented as one of these. Subsequent series would feature Sixknight and Greatshot, who were all members of the same secret order of ninja six-changers as Sixshot, called the Six Clan.
In the Japanese version of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, the Spy Changers are portrayed as ninjas.

Samurai Deeper Kyo has many ninjas on both Kyo's and the Mibu clan's side. Sanada Yukimura has the Jyuuyuushi (The Ten Sanada Brave) which includes Sarutobi Sasuke and Kirigakure Saizo. Fuuma Kotaro is Sasuke's childhood friend, who is also one of the Jyuunishinnsho (The Twelve Heavenly Gods) and believes Sasuke had betrayed him.

Though they are not seen in-game, the player character in Tropico 4 can hire ninjas to infiltrate a heavily-guarded fortress in Tibet. Unfortunately, the price for genuine Japanese ninjas is too high to afford, so the player hires Chinese ninjas instead.

Many readers, however, have noted that the original writers of Batman created him as a de facto ninja without knowing it in the 1930s. Many portrayals of the Dark Knight had him undergoing some variety of training in ninja-style arts prior to his assumption of the mantle of the Bat, such as the Christopher Nolan Batman movies which had him training with the League of Shadows.

Ayame from Capcom's Power Stone is, on the surface, a more subtle example than most. She's a young street performer and acrobat who dresses the part and is the star artiste for her family's troupe: who, along with herself, are all secretly descended from a long line of master ninja and use their act as a cover for what they do and to travel the land. She acts as the game's resident Fragile Speedster, using plenty of graceful flips and somersaults and acrobatic dance-inspired attacks and occasionally using a kunai she hides in her sleeves. And then there's her Power Change, where she transforms into a pink-clad butterfly-like form that hurls volleys of giant shuriken.

The King of Fighters' has several, including:
Mai Shiranui immediately comes to mind, seeing as she's more the highly visible variety, due to her voluptuous figure and how scantily she dresses. She wasn't quite as bad in her native game series. By the time of Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Hokutomaru takes her and Andy's place as the game's resident ninja.
Speaking of Andy, he's pretty visible himself in that bright white outfit and his long blonde hair. And doubles as a McNinja, since he's originally from Southtown.
Eiji Kisaragi is a more traditional example, hailing from a remote region of Japan and enters the King of Fighters to settle a grudge against the Kyokugenryu Team. Though he and his team end up being a comedic group of ineffectual "villains".
Spinoff Maximum Impact 2 introduced Nagase, another Highly Visible Ninja described in-game as "The Ninja Computer Geek".

Shadow Warrior features ninjas as basic mooks; unlike most ninjas, they wear nothing but pants and shoes and tend to use firearms, though they toss shurikens as well sometimes. They also seem prone to committing suicide for no reason. Some of them are almost invisible.
Lo Wang himself is also a ninja, though he does not engage in much stealthy action in-game. The remake series, however, changes this, with the second game allowing Wang to go into stealth mode and deliver heavy damage with a single strike.

In The Elder Scrolls series, the Dark Brotherhood invokes the aesthetic of ninjas, though they aren't technically ninjas. The Dark Brotherhood, an illegal organization of assassins whose membership mostly takes a sadistic glee in killing and who practice a Religion of Evil. Tthe Brotherhood's standard armor (mostly black light armor with a hood and/or cowl) and propensity toward stealth and assassination certainly invoke the ninja aesthetic.

Ninja are one of the major types of opponents faced by Ogami Itto of Lone Wolf and Cub. They're depicted very realistically, between the Kurokuwa ninja, spies and assassins of the shogunate, and the "Grass" ninja, who functions as extreme deep-cover agents and spies. Masters of disguise and employing all manner of "dirty" tricks imaginable, ranging from poison to psychological warfare, ninja provide Ogami's greatest challenges in the first half of the series. By the finale, after the Kurokuwa have all been lost in failed assassination attempts on Ogami, Retsudo calls in the Grass for one last desperate attempt. When all is said and done, Ogami has managed to kill his way through every ninja in Japan.

The Scorpion Clan, especially the Shosuro Assassins and Bayushi Ninja Infiltrators, in Legend of the Five Rings. Plays the trope straight and subverts it at the same time: the real assassins rely on disguise to blend into the crowd, while the "typical" ninjas in black pajamas are Highly Visible Ninja Mooks often used as a distraction.
In fact, the ninja mooks are aspirants to be "proper" shinobi; if they can survive trying to be "stealthy" in the worst way possible for a year, then they're ready to learn how to do it right. The books even point out that "ninja" gear, by and large, is completely awful. Never use a ninja-to against a katana, for instance.
They ask that you call them "shinobi", though. The term "ninja" is somewhat offensive, as the other ninjas in Rokugan are primarily shapeshifting servants of a Cosmic Horror that's also an identity-stealing version of The Virus.
One of the books states that all Clans have their own ninja-style groups, like the Daidoji Harriers of the Crane Clan (who focus on guerrila tactics) or the Ikoma Spymasters of the Lion Clan (who focus on information gathering). This despite the fact that ninja are outlawed by Imperial Edict, and thus do not officially exist.

Ninja are commonplace in the Final Fantasy series, whether as a class to use, unique party members, or as random enemies. They often possess the Throw command (Which can turn undesired weapons into lethal projectiles), elemental ninjutsu, and the ability to dual wield weapons.
Yuffie is Final Fantasy VII's resident kunoichi, though she's an optional and very missable character. Most fans remember her for joining them long enough to steal their Materia, then pulling a disappearing act. Very ninja of her.
Final Fantasy XIV blends the pop culture portrayal of ninja with reality, as while they utilize the supernatural powers of ninjutsu, when it comes to espionage, the Doman ninja you interact with simply dress as commonfolk, generally donning their traditional garb only if they know they're going to end up in a combat situation. The sole one among their number who goes about perpetually in uniform is Yugiri Mistwalker, presumably because being an Au Ra (A race that only recently began immigrating to Eorzea), she's liable to draw attention to herself regardless of how she dresses.

All 'proper' ninja (not counting changelings et al.) in Magic so far come from the Betrayers of Kamigawa expansion set. They all have the ability (known, of course, as ninjutsu) to pop into play by replacing an attacking unblocked creature on their side plus a variety of followup abilities that trigger off of their dealing combat damage to a player. The implication of this is that an individual ninja can masquerade as absolutely anything, from a flock of squirrels up to an Eldrazi. Talk about Paranoia Fuel...

The Scyther, Nincada, and Shelmet lines all have ninja motifs. Curiously enough, they are all also Bug-type Pokemon (Scyther=praying mantis, Nincada=cicada, Shelmet=snail) as well.
Koga, the Poison-type Gym Leader from Pokémon Red and Blue, also has a ninja motif. He's training his daughter Janine in the art, and when he makes it to the Elite Four of the Indigo League in Pokémon Gold and Silver, she takes over the Gym.
Plus, in Hoenn and Sinnoh there are several kid ninja trainers running around.
Furthermore, the moves "Double Team" and "Substitute" are based on popular ideas of ninja techniques.
Kalos introduces the franchise's strongest Pokemon example in the form of Greninja, the final evolution of the region's Water starter. It learns every single ninja-esque Pokemon move naturally (Smokescreen, Double Team, Substitute, and Spikes), along with having two new signature moves (Mat Block and Water Shuriken) that are also ninja-inspired.

The popularity of ninja in Western media may have started with the Bond film You Only Live Twice from 1967. Most of those ninja were depicted as being more like members of an elite government special forces unit than invisible assassins, however. (Except for the one who killed the Bond girl, of course.)

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has you play as the ninja bodyguard Wolf, who will need to rely on a combination of swordsmanship, stealth, agility, and the many gadgets contained within his prosthetic arm (ranging from a grappling hook to firecrackers) in order to aid his young lord. However, included among Wolf's many foes are a number of other highly skilled and agile shinobi with their own techniques, the two most notable being Wolf's former mentor Lady Butterfly with her illusion magic, and Wolf's foster father Owl, who has many of his son's tricks plus a few of his own.

Transformers Animated has Prowl and Jazz as goddamn NINJA ROBOTS. How much cooler can you get? Ironically, Prowl's a pretty honourable guy as a ninja (as is Jazz) but the moment he puts on the Samurai Armour Upgrade, he becomes a totally arrogant asshole one step away from turning into a villain.
Prowl was slightly arrogant already, as he seems to think a lot of his own abilities. This is tempered by the fact that he actually just is that badass.
Animated went on to reveal that there's an entire order of ninjas back on Cybertron, which includes Animated versions of almost every Autobot martial artist, melee-weapon user, fist fighter... and Grandus.

Sonic X has Espio the Chameleon. He is (unlike the others in his group) calm and collected. As a part of the Chaotix detective agency, he made his debut in episode 39 (a loose tie-in with the game Sonic Heroes). That was, however, his only appearance on Earth. In fact, that was his ONLY appearance in the original 52 episodes! He would later go on to appear in episode 59, where he is again seen with the Chaotix crew. During season 3 he became more of a prominent character. The appearances of the Chaotix were strictly for filler episodes until episode 74, where they became background characters for each of the remaining episodes, participating in combat against the Metarex. Akin to his video game counterpart, Espio uses all manner of Ninja skills to battle opponents. His trademark ability is to turn invisible to sneak up on his enemies. He also uses a variety of weapons including an enormous collection of shuriken, and even threatens Sonic's life at one point with one of his kunai ninja knives.

The Aztec warriors of El Conquistador are depicted almost like ninjas: preternaturally agile, fast, stealthy, skilled and subtly "magic"; they take a castle in no time by infiltrating in it and taking down the entire guard. But they also doesn't follow the rule of Conservation of Ninjutsu, so they have an advantage over the traditional japanese ninjas.

They consist of Shen, Akali (a kunoichi) and Kennen (a yordle), and all of them are playable to varying degrees, Akali serves as a traditional assassination-based Ninja, Kennen is more about blasting your enemies with lightning, and Shen is an unusually tough ninja that is capable of tanking while having a body built more like a traditional ninja (not very big). They also get their Arch-Enemy, shadow-based ninja named Zed.

Yoshimitsu appears in both the Tekken series and Soul Calibur, though Word of God states they're two different characters. They are far away from the common depiction, however, acting more like Samurais on crack. Tekken's Yoshimitsu is a ninja thief who has become a full-time cyborg over time, while the one from the Soul series is the mysterious leader of a band of thieves, and the last survivor of an actual ninja clan.
Tekken also includes Raven, who's more a secret spy/agent with ninja stylings. He's, however, dowright appalled at Yoshimitsu's "un-ninja" quirkiness and is quick to try to correct him.
Soul Calibur also includes more "traditional" ninjas in the form of Taki and her student, Natsu. They come from a whole clan of ninja who defend Japan from evil spirits.

The Tenchu series, in contrast to many ninja series, places full emphasis on the ninja's true strength: stealth. Ninjas in this series are unsuited for the open hand-to-hand combat of the samurai, but are the undisputed masters of the stealth kill.
Later games in the series have even improved in their portrayal, such as including alternate paths to "stealth kill" a boss without having to face him as a boss.

As a typical ninja, he is very agile, and some of his powers include (dis)appearing in a puff of smoke, and telepathically levitating objects. Since it is a show aimed at preschoolers, he does not use actual weapons, but he and his mooks have Sticky Splat which can be used for various purposes.

Magick Chicks: Artemis Academy's Ninja Club. Their leader, Tandy, is a member of the student council, has stealth down to such a science that she can seemingly appear from thin air, and even knows a secret art for interrogation purposes. Her club members have proven themselves so capable, in her absence, that they've managed to kidnap Skye and replace her with Rain, in order to spy on Cerise and undermine her authority — all without Cerise suspecting a thing!

Rurouni Kenshin has the Oniwabanshuu, a group of onmitsu that are initially opponents to Kenshin under the leadership of Shinomori Aoshi. When Kenshin travels to Kyoto to fight Shishio Makoto, they become allies. They are a somewhat more realistic interpretation, being inspired by the real thing.

Speed Racer: A ninja appears and attacks the Racer brothers... but he commits the sheer mistake of going against Pops Racer. Cue an hilariously awesome Curb-Stomp Battle — with the ninja at the receiving end!

Mega Man:
Mega Man 3: ShadowMan. Who scores double points for being a ninja robot.
He has two Expys, Phantom (Mega Man Zero) and ShadowMan.EXE (Mega Man Battle Network).
Mega Man 2: Metal Man is also dressed like a stereotypical ninja, though instead of shuriken he hurls sawblades.
You can become a Ninja in Mega Man ZX and its sequel, by obtaining Model P or copying its data.
ZX Advent gives us Siarnaq, the one holding Model P (And that you later copies the data thus gaining his powers. His voice is robotic and monotone, kind of reflecting how a shinobi should control their emotions... That is, until you hear him laugh. Perhaps it has to do with him being betrayed by his friends and left for dead in his past?

Almost assuredly parodied in Mobile Fighter G Gundam. Midway through the story a German ninja is introduced and takes on the role of surrogate mentor to the protagonist, Domon. He even practices German Ninjutsu. Hilariously enough, he shuns the traditional garb of a ninja and dresses in clothes that are not remotely useful in maintaining stealth. Most absurd is the mask he wears. While it does obscure his features, it is painted in the bright, primary colors of the German flag and sports a jester hat-like protrusion. That doubles as a shuriken.
While he looks ridiculous, Schwartz is otherwise a straight example of a ninja. He's also extremely badass, able to fight on roughly the same level as Master Asia.

Aztec Wars has Ninjas, clad in blue, as one of the Chinese units (supposedly, the Chinese empire in the game has conquered most of Asia). They're the basic infantry unit, and they fight with martial arts.

The Komoris in Red Steel are a clan of ninjas who fight with guns and poisoned swords, and yes, they wear the stereotypical black pyjamas. Scott himself gets to undertake some ninja training over the course of the game.

Feng Shui lists the Ninja as a PC archetype. Their Martial Arts skill and Fu attributes are just one point lower than the Martial Artist, and they have the second highest Intrusion skill in the game (the Thief has the highest with a 16 AV). In addition, one of the Fu paths of the game, the Path of the Shadow's Companion, is tailor-made for the Ninja, with powers that allow you to make silent martial arts attacks and bypass the Toughness of your opponent when attacking someone unawares. You also get to fight ninjas a lot as both mooks and named characters.

Kalos introduces the franchise's strongest Pokemon example in the form of Greninja, the final evolution of the region's Water starter. It learns every single ninja-esque Pokemon move naturally (Smokescreen, Double Team, Substitute, and Spikes), along with having two new signature moves (Mat Block and Water Shuriken) that are also ninja-inspired.

The MLP Loops:
Ivory Scroll (also known as Mayor Mare) ends up in the Naruto loops early on, and the experience sticks. She often uses paper-ninja powers to send messages and otherwise make her paperwork easier.
In one loop, everyone at the bar is talking about some of the weird variants of Twilight Velvet (Twilight Sparkle's mother) that they've seen. Then someone mentions a time Velvet was a ninja. And then everyone realizes none of them said it...

The title character of the Alex Rider series dresses as a ninja in Scorpia, when going to assassinate Mrs Jones. However, he does use real ninja tactics when trying to gain access to her floor: disguising himself as a pizza boy and having his weapons hidden in or disguised as his merchandise, and only switches to the stagehand outfit when in an area he'd be thrown out of whatever he was dressed as.
