- This page is about the character. For the player, see Ninja (user).
The ninja is the stick-figure character you control in N. The ninja officially has no name, although it is often called N, which actually refers to the "Way of the Ninja" in the game. This is a mistake made by many people. The Ninja is also without gender.
The goal of each level is to get the ninja to hit the exit switch and get to the exit. However, drones and other enemies will attempt to stop the ninja from reaching the exit. You must avoid them all to get to the exit without harm. Be careful, because just one hit is enough to kill the ninja, making you have to start the level over. When your ninja finally touches the exit, you will see one out of eight different victory poses. When you complete a column in N, you will get a different flavour (or color) for your ninja, as a reward for your hard work and effort.
