Shinobi is about a ninja named Joe Musashi who has to stop a criminal organization called “Zeed” who are kidnapping the children of the Oboro clan.
Through five missions of increasing difficulty, Musashi must make his way to Zeed's headquarters and free all the hostages before confronting Zeed's leaders known as “Ring of Five”, which are formidable enemies on their own. “Ring of Five” are the bosses at the end of each level. Below is the list of them.
Ken Oh - A gigantic samurai-like wizard who can throw fireballs.
Black Turtle - A leader who is piloting or aboard an attack helicopter.
Mandara - A Hinduistic guru who is, in fact, cyborg.
Lobster - A large samurai with a V-shaped symbol on his head who wields a sword.
Masked Ninja - The main leader of Zeed and the last boss, he is a powerful ninja with vast magical and physical powers. His true identity is revealed to be Nakahara, Joe Musashi's mentor. Nakahara's name is a reference to the Musashi-Nakahara Station. His name is meant to be a hint of his true identity as “Nakahara Musashi”, Joe Musashi's father.
