No Ninja calls oneself, “I am a ninja.” Therefore, there are many mysterious parts in their real images and histories.
However, if you unravel the battles that have been passed down to these days, there were almost always the existence and activities of Ninja. Many of the great battles in Japanese history were where the outnumbered forces brilliantly defeated large armies. The significance of Ninja lies in the way of fighting to gain a victory while catching the enemy off their guard and minimizing the damage to their allies.
Masayuki Sanada is one of the great warlords who was good at using Ninja as a vital force. In “The First Battle in Ueda” in 1585, he repelled the Tokugawa Army of nearly 8,000 by only 2,000 troops.
