A warrior who uses stealth to be all but invisible. The ninja may also Throw weapons at faraway enemies.Description
Ninja is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics. It is the fastest job, and can equip two weapons at once. Its HP is limited, so Ninjas easily die if not supported. It costs 3,760 JP to master in the original PlayStation version, and 3,960 JP in the The War of the Lions remaster.
Attaining Level 8 with Ninja along with separate level requirements from Knight, Dragoon, Geomancer, Black Mage, and Samurai, as well as having 20 kills with the unit (the defeated unit must crystallize or turn into a chest to count) will unlock the Dark Knight in the War of the Lions version.
The Ninja possesses the highest C-EV (character evasion value) and speed of any standard class.

The Ninja is a melee-oriented job focused on speed and mobility, capable of dealing damage from any range. It boasts the highest speed and has excellent attack power, as well the highest physical evasion in the game. It also has low HP, on par with mage jobs. The Ninja has innate Dual Wield, which—when learned as an ability—can further other damage-dealing classes, such as Knights and Monks.
Ninjas are self-sufficient units. Their Throw is potent, specially with easily disposable weapons, such as axes and flails, which naturally have high attack power. Given their natural high evasion, when equipped with cloaks, they can become virtually impossible to hit by physical and even magickal attacks. By equipping the Samurai's Shirahadori, this becomes even more powerful. To further capitalize on their strengths, Ninjas can be equipped with Thief's Move +2 (or Bard's Move +3, if male) and the Germinas Boots to give them unmatched mobility.
Given their versatility, they can use various job commands as their secondary. Chemist's Item combined with its Throw Item support ability supplements their ability to throw items from afar, allowing their to toss weapons to hurt their enemies while lobbing healing items at their allies. The Ninja's high physical attack also makes the Monk's Martial Arts or the Dragoon's Jump viable options as well. With their high speed Ninjas can be given the Thief's Steal as a secondary job command, since stealing is direct tied to the Speed attribute; they also make great Bards/Dancers as they'll activate their skills more often.
