TRIVIA

Shinobi was one of the many names given to the ninja in feudal Japan. It literally means 'stealer-in' because that is what the ninja specialised in above all else. By employing any number of tricks such as stealth walking and staying upwind of any guard animals, the shinobi went undetected about his mission. On a more devious level, the shinobi was also a master of disguise, and would often 'steal in' to village communities disguised as a local, or even into enemy palaces, disguised as a wandering priest looking for somewhere to stay overnight.
