The Ninja is an optional boss from Final Fantasy III, found in Forbidden Land Eureka. One attacks when the player opens the chest with Ribbon on level 2, and more can be fought as normal enemies throughout the bottom floors.

Battle[edit | edit source]
He is incredibly agile, and will likely attack first each round, unless the party contains characters in job classes also emphasizing speed, such as the Thief or Ninja. Ninja attacks twice per round with lethal sword strikes, which may inflict Blind and Poison.
The party receives a Ribbon after defeating him.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Ninja is a fairly easy opponent, unless the party is under-leveled. Any party filled with adequate melee characters (e.g. Knight or Black Belt) with at least one supporting Devout should fare easily against this foe, if properly leveled. Alternatively, a Viking in the back row, equipped with Crystal equipment, can Provoke the Ninja each round, while the rest of the party safely attacks him. Geomancers are also useful, due to the high probability of them casting the powerful Shadowflare for heavy high damage.
