The Kamikaze Ninja Clan (神風一族 Kamikaze Ichizoku?, Divine Wind Clan) is another defunct ninja clan in which the rogue ninja, Yaiba Kamikaze, originated from. Similar to the Hayabusa and Black Spider, the Kamikaze Ninja Clan descended from Kitsune (妖狐 Fox spirits?).[1]


Originating from the bloodline of Kitsunes, the Kamikaze Ninja Clan existed until a family dispute gone awry. After a quarrel that resulted in the death of Kamikaze heiress, Yuki Kamikaze, Yaiba attempted to use a forbidden art to save her, but his effort was thwarted by his father, who decapitated her corpse to keep him from doing so. This would lead to Yaiba going mad with rage and hate, and he not only slaughtered his father and elders, he brought them back to spite them, and from then on, the Kamikaze was dishonored, and is now no more.[1]


Similar to other ninja clans, The Kamikaze clan placed a value on honor, viewing death, even an accidental one, as honorable in spite of having the means to bring back the dead. Because of this, the use of a forbidden art to revive the dead is heavily frowned upon by the Kamikaze clan, as it was considered a huge dishonor to their kin to be revived back to the mortal plane when they were already dead.[1]

Notable AbilitiesEdit

Noted to be tricksters, the clan also possessed a special healing Ninpo art considered forbidden that allowed them to resurrect the dead into zombies. Casted by either a user and/or the usage of a special Ninpo scroll, the Ninpo cannoy be used on individuals who have been beheaded.[1] Additionally, the clan also practiced other Ninpo techniques such as Substitution Ninpo and trained their members in being able to perform physically demanding tasks such as rock climbing and defeating opponents without the use of special arts like Ninpo.[2]
