Defunct/Disbanded (after Murai's Death)

The Shadow Ninja Clan is a defunct clan of evil ashigaru-sha Ninja foot soldiers created, taught, and led by the deceased rogue shinobi, Murai (a.k.a The Dark Disciple/Devil Incarnate). While training, Ryu fights his way through the Shadow Clan's former fortress in the first chapter of Ninja Gaiden. Murai, who was Ryu's maternal uncle, was expelled from the Dragon Ninja Clan for unknown reasons and started his own clan, the Shadow Ninja Clan, who are on neutral terms with the Dragon Ninja Clan.  


The Former Headquarters of the Shadow Clan is the Shadow Clan Ninja Fortress.  After Murai's death, the clan disbanded, never avenged their leader/master, and abandoned the Shadow Fortress to rot uninhabited collecting bacteria, bugs, cobwebs, dust, and lint.

Ninja Class typesEdit

  • (Brown) Lesser Shadow Foot Soldier
  • (White) Greater Shadow Foot Soldier

Although Black Spider foot soldiers and Windmill foot soldiers can be fought within the Shadow Clan Ninja Fortress on higher difficulties, they are almost certainly not official members of the Shadow Ninja Clan.
