  • Just letting you know that I have found the image of the Ninja Master from one of those sprites websites before croping & enlarging the only one picture of him & changed the pic's surrounding background. Yes it was a bit fan-made but it out of my canonical respect & love for the Shinobi games, especially my personal favorite Shinobi III. I hope you are not mad @ me.

    • i'm not, but fan made on a wikia is considered a no-no because of the fact that it's not showing the actual material, and it makes things very difficult to keep in order. A scenario i'd like us all to avoid. Especially since some admins don't take it too well.

    • Shinobi's world takes place in a semi realistic setting. Naruto doesn't.

  • No bad blood, my man. I'm just passionate about my contributions, is all. I understand that you're also trying to contribute as much as you can, which is a good quality and respectable. Anyway, I'm glad we can come to an agreement. I'll take a look at those pages you pointed out. Let me know if you need help with any others.

    I'd also still appreciate it if you can link me to any sources that you draw from in the future. I'm not trying to imply that you "just make things up", it's just easier to verify information and keep things consistent when I have to rephrase things.

    Happy editing.

  • Hey,

    While I agree that most content should be focused on the games and their franchises, I do not agree that it is fine to just make things up. With this in mind, please link me the source for the information that you added to the makimono page. I'd like to know which official document or source you acquired that information from. I'd also like to point out that there's nothing wrong with using real world information to give context to the various objects that are used in the games, especially when these items are based on real world and culturally relevant objects that may need to be explained. Therefore, I will edit the page and add in some of the information that you omitted. I'd also like to remind you that "edit wars" are against the rules, so I'd like it if we could come to an agreement on this and other points of contention in the future.

  • Hi,

    I have to say that I think it's incorrect to classify the Oborozuki as a sabre. Sabres are a class of European curved swords that typically have a straight spine and an enclosed hand guard, and that were used by cavalry in the 16th and 17th centuries. Oborozuki is a Japanese sword, so it is either a katana or a tachi. I am aware that some early Japanese swords were modeled after some Chinese models, and that some Chinese swords are referred to as sabres. However, it is only technically correct to refer to any of these blades as a sabre, and that is only because they share some basic characteristics with Eurpoean blades, such as single edged blades that can be used exclusively with one hand.

    If there is some official source that gives Oborozuki the title, "The Shinobi Sabre" then please point it out. If you can find an official document that explains how Oborozuki was forged and how it should be specifically classified, then please do so, and I will rewrite portions of the article to accommodate this information. However, even if you can find an official document that calls Oborozuki "The Shinobi Sabre", I would still point out that, although it may be technically correct to call a nihontou a type of sabre, it would be more fitting to refer to the sword as a katana, a tachi, or some other specific model of Japanese sword. The reason for this is simply because most people can easily distinguish between a katana and a sabre, and it may only cause confusion to refer to Oborozuki in this way. However, it seems like this type of information would fit in very well in the Trivia section.

    With this in mind, I chose to refer to it simply as a blade, because the term "blade" is an ambiguous and catch all term that can be used to describe any type of instrument with a sharpened edge that is used for cutting, slashing, stabbing, etc. Butter knives, woodcutting axes, scalpels, and other common tools of this nature can be considered blades.

    Therefore, I urge you to work with me to consider another, more appropriate, name. If not "the Oboro blade" or "The Shinobi Sabre" then what would you call it?

    • They called it Shinobi Sabre in Shadow Dancer. But let's just call it "Shinobi-gatana" Since that's technically what it is. Oboro Blade, while poetic, is incorrect too, as there are numerous blades from Tanto to katana to Nodachi. And while on the subject of swords, try your hand at Akujiki. And hit up Jiro Musashi when you have some time.

  • Hi. I just wanna say excellent job on all the pages including my Gojufu talismans article. A lot has changed since my last visit here, although all of them just needs some spacing & grammar cleanup & a bit structuring. I'll help this wiki out first thing tomorrow morning. Well, I gotta go. Take care.

  • i'm trying to add some info and pictures to Jiro Musashi and the other important players, it'll take me some time but i should have some things up and running soon. I managed to get my hands on some screens, it'll be a bit due to PC difficulty but i will update Jiro Musashi and the other Shinobi 3DS characters soon.
