The Ninja is the one of the four playable Hero Classes available in Fortnite. With their unique ability to double-jump as well as a high base movement speed, they have the highest mobility out of all the classes. The Ninja also features an affinity for melee weapons, and as such, many of their Skill Tree upgrades focus on improving their capability in close-range combat. In addition, they have various offensive melee abilities as well as escape abilities, which makes them well suited for fighting Husks head on. The main downside of this class is their low base Health and Shield, making it necessary for the player to utilize their mobility to avoid taking damage.

The skills in the Ninja's Skill Tree focus around improving Offense and Tech, as well as unlocking Evolution for Swords, Spears, Scythes, and Axes.

Sub-classes[edit | edit source]

The Ninja Hero Class has 18 sub-classes, each with their own unique perks and bonuses.


Characters[edit | edit source]

In addition to sub-classes, Ninjas have 11 different character models that are usually tied to a particular sub-class. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for sub-classes using characters not usually associated with the sub-class. For example, the character Ken is primarily associated with the Fleetfoot and Swordmaster sub-classes, however Founder's Packs included a special version of Ken with the sub-class Assassin.

The current Ninja characters are:
