Ninjutsu (often incorrectly referred to as 'Ninjitsu'), which means the "art of forbearance," is the Japanese martial art created by a group of families originally from the Iga and Koga regions of Japan.The term shinobi is the native Japanese word for a practitioner of Ninjutsu. Ninjutsu is sometimes used interchangeably with the term ninpō (忍法, ninpō?)
Skills relating to espionage and assassination were highly useful to warring factions in feudal Japan. However, because these activities were seen as dishonorable, Japanese warriors hired people who existed below Japan's social classes, literally called "non-humans" (非人, hinin?), to perform these tasks. At some point, the skills of espionage became known collectively as ninjutsu, and the people who specialized in these tasks were called shinibi no mono, and later, ninja.
Ultimately, the skills of ninjutsu were so essential to conducting warfare that some samurai began to practice their techniques, as well incorporating ninjutsu into their formal schools of martial arts (ryū). The school of Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū claims to have been the first to incorporate ninjutsu into its curriculum, and other schools make competing claims.
Ninjutsu was developed by groups of people mainly from the Iga Province and Kōka, Shiga in feudal Japan. Throughout history the shinobi have been seen as assassins for hire, and have been associated in the public imagination with other activities which are considered criminal by modern standards.
Ninjutsu was developed as a collection of fundamental survivalist techniques in the warring state of feudal Japan. The ninja clans used their art to ensure their survival in a time of violent political turmoil. It also included methods of gathering information, non-detection, avoidance, and misdirection techniques. Ninjutsu can also involve training in disguise, escape, concealment, archery, medicine, explosives, and poisons.
Even though it may have been influenced by Chinese spying techniques and the strategic principles of Sun Tzu, ninjutsu is regarded by its adherents as being wholly of Japanese origin.

Ninjutsu, also known as Ninja Magic or Ninja, is a recurring ability and class of spells in the Final Fantasy series.
Ninjutsu, also known as Ninja and Ninja Magic in other translations, is Edge's special magic in the game Final Fantasy IV. It combines aspects of White and Black Magic, but seems to focus primarily on Black Magic. In the Nintendo DS version of Final Fantasy IV, Edge learns three new Ninjutsu: an Earth-elemental attack, an Ice-elemental attack, and a Wind-elemental attack. Edge learns new Ninjutsu techniques as he levels up, with the exception of Flood and Blitz, which he learns in accordance with the storyline.
Ninjutsu spells come back in the sequel. It works in the same way as it was in the original game, only now, new characters besides Edge can use Ninjutsu.
