Costumes are different skins or models available for playable characters throughout the Ninja Gaiden series.

Ninja GaidenEdit

CCostume NG1-S 01f 9001

Shinobi Shozoku outfit

  • Shinobi Shozoku: Purple Hayabusa ninja suit. Used in Chapters 1 and 2.  NOTE: In Ninja Gaiden Black, before beating the game for the first time and unlocking other costumes, if Ryu unlocks and uses the "Ninja Dog" difficulty before reaching chapter 3, he will remain wearing the Shinobi Shozuku outfit for the rest of the game.
  • Legendary Black Falcon: A modern ninja suit. Used from Chapter 3 onwards.
    NG1 1Vanilla Ninja Of The Future

    Future Ninja

  • Ninja of the Future: Futuristic ninja costume, usable after completing the game on any difficulty. Usable only by selecting and holding the Plasma Saber. It has also been said to be be wearable when selecting a new game and holding down L-button when starting a new game, after first defeating a normal or hard playthrough. 
  • Fiend Curse: Ryu's skin becomes blue and his eyes red; this is reflected on whichever costume Ryu is currently using. Used during Chapter 15.  One can begin a game with Ryu in his cursed fiend appearance by holding down the R button when starting a new game after having first defeated the game on normal or hard difficulty.  During the story chapters where Ryu would normally appear to have the fiend curse, now the opposite will happen and he will look normal instead.

TriviaEdit

  • Ryu's Fiend curse from Ninja Gaiden and its remakes is reflected differently on his different costumes:
    • When Ryu wears the Legendary Black Falcon, Traditional Dark Blue or Dead or Alive costumes, his skin becomes blue and his eyes red.
    • When wearing the Dragon Muscle costume his eyes change from white to red.
    • When wearing Red Muffler his eyes change from red to green.
    • Additionally, in Ninja Gaiden Black, when Ryu becomes a fiend there are white glowing veins over the skin of his arms and around his eyes. In Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Sigma Plus, there are no glowing white veins.
  • The Dragon Muscle Suit has two alternative names: Ashtar Costume or Doppelgänger Costume, due to the headpiece resemblance to Ashtar's and the Doppelganger Fiends usually taking this form to fight Ryu. However, of those two alternative names, only the "Dopplegänger" is considered an official name, as seen in Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus.
    • In Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Sigma Plus, if Ryu faces the Doppelgänger fiends while wearing this outfit, they will have a different colour scheme: dark blue and silver to Ryu's black and red.
