The Art of the Crimson Lotus (紅蓮楓の術 Gurenfu no Jutsu; "Art of Crimson Maple") is a Ninja art used by the Dragon Shrine Maiden Momiji in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.


Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2Edit

A ninpo spell that incinerates the enemy with a vortex of fire.

Gesturing the characters “rin,” “byo,” “to,” “sha,” “kai,” “jin,” “retsu,” “zai,” and “zen” (臨・兵・闘・者・皆・陣・列・在・前) in sequence activates the spell, transforming the leaves dancing within the magic circle into an inferno of fire balls that incinerate and consume all enemies in their path. The divine flames burn only the wicked, leaving those pure of heart unscathed.


Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2Edit

This ninpo is used by Momiji during her quest to rescue Sanji from the Tengu Brother in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.


  • Balanced ninpo.
  • Good amount of damage.
  • Can target up to 3 different enemies.
  • High range.

-Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

  • Allows movement while active.
  • Player can press the ninpo button at any time when active to launch the fireballs outwards.
  • Momiji can simply launch ONE fireball by pressing block and the shuriken buttons at the same time. (This reduces a small amount of Ninpo energy each time when used.)
  • The fireballs can disrupt enemies' current attack/movement.


  • Only damages enemies in front of Momiji.

-Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

  • Leaves Momiji vulnerable to ranged attacks.
  • Lasts for a relatively short time.
  • Long Ninpo Bar.
  • Does not restore much health when hitting enemies.
  • Short range. (If Ninpo command is not used again during active period)
  • The fireballs are relatively weak when launched.


In Ninja Gaiden Sigma II, this ninpo is nearly identical to the Art of the Inferno. Like the Art of the Inferno, the Art of the Crimson Lotus is best used in "bottle neck" areas, such as hallways and enclosed areas where it is hard for enemies to spread out and attack from different flanks.

In Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge, the ninpo is nearly identical to Art of the Flame Phoenix and Art of the Fire Wheels.


  • The characters 臨兵闘者皆陣列在前 is a phrase that represents the nine-cuts mudra, part of a Hindu prayer hand-posture, and is supposed to be an exorcism-purification spell.
  • In Ninja Gaiden Sigma II, Momiji chants what seems to be "Don Patura Dun".
  • In Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, this Ninpo's effect creates a large swirling fireball around Momiji, similar to Art of the Fire Wheels and Art of the Flame Phoenix.
