The Ninja is the one of the four Hero Classes available in Fortnite. With their unique ability to double-jump as well as a higher 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 upgrades focus on improving their capability in close-range combat. In addition, they have various melee offensive 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.

Characters[edit | edit source]
In addition to sub classes, Ninjas have 8 different character models that are usually tied to a particular subclass. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for subclasses using characters not usually associated with the subclass. For example, the character Ken is primarily associated with the Fleetfoot and Swordmaster subclasses, however Founder's Packs included a special version of Ken with the subclass Assassin.

Traits[edit | edit source]
Each Hero has a set of Traits that are gradually unlocked as the hero is Upgraded. These include activatable Abilities, passive Hero Perks, and Squad Bonuses that apply when a hero is slotted into the respective slot in the Hero tab.
The following is a list of all traits from the Ninja class. To view a Sub Class' specific trait tree, see its individual page above.
When slotted into one of the Squad Bonus slots in the Hero tab, a hero's Squad Bonuses are applied to the player's primary hero as a passive perk. A Hero has either a Support Bonus, a Tactical Bonus, or both, which are shown in their respective slots on the Hero screen.
