The Ninja is a recurring class in the Disgaea series. Ninjas are apostles born from darkness who serve as assassins feared by those in power. They use a unique style called Ninpo, which is based on spying and secrecy. Ninjas follow strict commandments and are very loyal to their masters. However some are actually spies for another master, throwing doubt on whether a Ninja's stated loyalties are genuine. Punishment and ultimately death await Ninjas who break their code of conduct.
