The Marked Ninja, additionally called The Champion, is the main protagonist of Mark of the Ninja, a recent 2D platformer.
The ninja's name and past is purposely left a mystery, but what is known is that he was well trained under Azai, the leader of a ninja group known as the Hisomu Clan. A deal was made between the ninja and Azai that the former were to get ancient, mythical tattoos that grant the wearer unfathomable power, power required to protect the Hisomu Clan. However, the tattoo would eventually drive the ninja to insanity and he would be forced to kill himself before the madness took over and destroyed the clan. After receiving these tattoos, the ninja was knocked unconscious once a group of Hessian mercenaries invaded the Hisomu Clan's temple. Once the ninja was awoken by a female ninja named Ora, the two fought their way though the ranks of the mercenaries via clever and stealthy means.
