    Why would put Adam Jensen, he didn't ask for this.

    Yeah, you forgot the male from Shadow of the Ninja. He has a cybernetic arm. Also, I really wish you paid tribute to the robot ninjas in that Taito SNES game... the name which escapes me.

    Great list. And nice Mention of Yuki!

    I was highly surprised/dismayed to see Yasha from Asura's Wrath missing from this list, especially considering that this was composed by the man whom I consider to be the bastion of gaming integrity for this site.

    Or Destroyman from No More Heroes, now that I think about it. An assassin with Machine Gun Nipples?

    1. There's a difference between assassin and ninja. 2. Destroyman was a superhero, not a ninja. 3. You must mean the DestroyMEN from NMH2, where they actually WERE cyborgs. But still not ninja.

    You need to calm down there buddy. It will be alright. I did mean New DestroyMAN. Left and Right.

    Or The Handsome Men from Killer7? They were cyborg ninjas specifically created to mock bad-ass superheroes. They would also call out the word "Handsome" before every attack, which is extra special.

    lso, the thing that defeated Sheppie was the damn gunship behind him, not his skill in Thessia and a sick Thane matches him equally.

    What... olny half my comment was there. Anyways, Kai never reached N6, just N7.

    Wow GR selling out for all these new game adverts. "We'll write a whole article about the best cyborg ninjas in gaming(even though most haven't even come out yet)!"

    Nice list of cyber ninja's and yet we don't see that many.

    On note of the Mortal Kombat one, Cyrax didn't willingly want the upgrade
  • slimjim441 - February 22, 2013 1:28 a.m.

    In MK9, you are somewhat right. Cyrax was reluctant, but never in the story did they mention he was completely unwilling. Given the fact that the list included Smoke in lieu of Cyber Sub-Zero, I think it's safe to assume that GR is referring mainly to MK3, where Smoke was turned into a cyborg, and not MK9, where Raiden's meddling changed such events.

    You should've just renamed the post ''famous video game ninjas' cause thats wht these are. You totally forgot about Tenchu. I wish Tenchu would make a return to PS3 or PS4. Boo

    On the note of Gray Fox (Cyborg Ninja), back in the days when rumors were not easily dispelled, there was a rumor that if you beat the game three times (to unlock the headband, stealth suit, and tuxedo), and then beat the game another time with no saves except for the disc change save in under three hours, you would unlock the ability to play as the Cyborg Ninja. ...Yeah, I believed it, yeah nothing happened when I cleared the game that fourth time.

    Dude, the guy from yaiban is going to get his ass beat, it's ryu for a reason. He cuts down everything. I honestly can't imagine some chump ryu cut into 63 parts coming back and winning.

    yaiba*

    Zer0 has 4 fingers because he might not be human, which is why he doesn't talk. Or maybe he had them removed as part of becoming a cyborg ninja. Maybe he'll be an NPC in the next game and have plot significance. Kai Leng was a wuss in ME3. Usually cited as one of the biggest missteps in the game's writing, but I suppose he is technically a cyborg ninja. And he manages to kill one person, as stupid as it was, so I can't say he isn't a little deadly.
