  • Ninjato is the only dual swords weapon without short attack (the attack where the user bumps the weapon's handle to the opponent when they are too close).
  • Ninjatō are allegedly the preferred weapon that the Shinobi of feudal Japan carried. The weapon is mostly refered to as ninjatō (忍者刀), ninjaken (忍者剣), or shinobigatana (忍刀).
    • Historically, there is no physical evidence for the existence of this "katana-like short sword legendarily used by ninja" before the 20th century, though it is believed that the designs demonstrated by alleged replicas are based on the design of the wakizashi or chokutō swords or the swords associated with Ashigaru, foot-soldiers employed by the samurai class of feudal Japan.
