I think you've all seen the argument. If not, look here: http://www.csb-digital.com/alamdv/community/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7295&start=15

Review the facts, and vote accordingly. Please don't vote ninjas just because Ice_Man has a longer and much more menacing saber. I'm working on mine...

Ninjas would win, because as we've all seen from that one james bond movie that takes place in japan where everything is made of paper, ninjas are clumsy, and often very loud.

hehehehe smile
ninjas, totally! because they have real ultimate power! lol
just kidding, seriuosly, ninjas would win, though

I believe aculag is thinking of You Only Live Twice. a horrible representation of ninja capabilties. no film ever made has truly captured the essence of awesomeness of the ninja. I don't think film is capable of capturing the awesomeness. . .

posted a link to that in the other topic, where this ridiculous arguement started
I say ridiculous because pirates could never hope to defeat the ninjas. . .

I would just like to say that around 5 months ago, on the 31st of October, a number of ninjas came to my door demanding that they be given all of my candy. I reached into the bag, and the next thing I knew I was tied to a tree 50 feet off the ground wearing only duct tape. Man, that was some crazy stuff. I don't think pirates would stand a chance against a maneuver like that...

For the record, I think 1 ninja would take on all 5 pirates.

Clearly, in the documented history of the on going battle, Ninjas are clearly the strongest of the two.



And, along with that tiny piece of evidence, if you watch DXM closely, you can easily see that the Pirates, or "Cyborgs," get totally wasted by the Ninja.

nope, cause that ninja is using a katana.

a katana has a curved blade, ninja swords do not, ninja sword blades are straight

this ninja has obviuosly stolen the sword to use against the ninja, thus framing the samauri

Well then, I must say that the "mustache" the pirate possesses is NOT a real mustache, IT IS PAINTED ON. Thus the "pirate" is not a real pirate. Everyone knows that you must have AT LEAST a mustache in order to join. They you may be a low level deck-swabber. Low level deck-swabbers NEVER fight, especially ninjas! This picture is obviously faked in order for people to think that its easy for a ninja to win. Let me assure you, this is false.

DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE PICTURE.

Straight swords and curved katanas aren't the dividing line between Ninjas and Samurais.

Take me, a sworn Ninja, for example. I have a katana.

And in "Shogun Showdown," the two Ninjas in it totally was the pirates with katanas.

. . . . . unsure
still the confusion of ninjas with other oriental figures!!
ninjas never 'lived by the sword' samauri did, ninjas didn't care what they killed you with, if they could do it with a zippo and a piece of toilet paper, they would!
a sword was just a tool, nothing sacred, they lost it, they got a new one.

like I said to someone else, the ninjas had guns and explosives too, it was asian people who discovered and first used gunpowder

Did you know that modern-day ninjas tend to look like this:



They all have fresh suits.

Ok, a modern ninja would never use the word "fresh" to describe ANYTHING. Neither would anyone else, for that matter. Go back to the 80's, man.

See, modern ninjas don't look like that. Do you know how I know this? A ninja would never reveal that he is, in fact a ninja, unless he killed the person he told shortly thereafter. So either you aren't a ninja, or I should watch my back. Personally, I'm not scared of a teenager in sweats.

The real matter at hand here:

is that really Mechaforce?

Or a Ninja disguised as a Beastie BOY who happens to look like Mecha in that lighting?eek

And if it is indeed Mechaforce, since he has a Katanna, maybe he is really part of a Yakuza fringe group that are really Neo-Samuri who say they are ninja to hide there true purpose? crazy

Then again that guy looks alot like a zombie in a fly suit. I bet under the suit is a pair of shorts and a white t-shirt soaked in green zombie blood.
In that case the katanna is needed to aid in the removal of flesh to feed his appetite for the living.... oink

Or maybe it just some guy in Clear Water with a fly second hand breakdance Electric Boogaloo warm up suit.

crazy

P.S. I almost forgot, Ninjas would dominate the pirates. They would wait in until the pirates finished pillaging and had stomaches full of rum. Then stealthly slit thier throats with their rusty pirate daggers while they slept... twisted

I thought mecha and friends were from STILLwater?


well, regardless of whether mecha is a ninja or not, or what ninjas wear or carry, the ninjas would still kill all of the pirates

I don't know how anyone could ever consider the pirates winning. One ninja could kill them all five times before they hit the ground! (to quote the simpsons).
