Ninjas were originally covert operatives in Japan who specialized in unorthodox warfare. These individuals were highly trained and were experts in spying, infiltration, sabotage, and assassination. Though a ninja's main function was espionage, they were also hired as mercenaries to perform acts of sabotage such as arson attacks targeted at camps and castles. Ninjas used various disguises to help them infiltrate and move around targeted towns and enemy terrains, and they were often assigned to retrieve information and data that could be used to defeat the enemies. On some occasions, ninjas were even hired to assassinate popular enemy figures to send a message to the enemy groups.
A ninja's training consisted of various stealth techniques, such as how to divert the attention of enemy guards and how to camouflage oneself in foliage, water, and in open space. Ninja's used plenty of disguises, such as monks, priests, entertainers, and merchants. Though a typical ninja would spend most of his/her time dressed as one of those characters, most modern depictions of ninjas consist of them wearing a black garb with some type of mask.
