How to Be a Ninja Punk

Ninja Punk is a style of punk from the early 2000s that developed out of the Horror Punk scene. Ninja punk isn't limited when it comes to music (except for metal), so feel free to listen to whatever you want. Ninja Punk originated from the numerous Horror Punks that liked Japan. Therefore, Japan is a prime source of information for Ninja punks.

    Develop a fashion sense. Ninja Punk fashion is similar to Horror Punk fashion which means lots of black.
    • Leather biker jackets and leather pants are not a must, but are a perfect addition to any Ninja Punk's attire.
    • A black doctor mask is a must. You may have to search for this object. When acquired, you can customize it as you like. If not found, get a dark-colored bandana.
    • A Long black overcoat is also a must.
    • Dark colored jeans are appreciated more than blue ones.
    • Gloves/wristbands are another good addition to a Ninja Punk's attire.
    • Acquire lots of black t-shirts. Unless you are very muscular, avoid sleeveless shirts.
    • Black hair is another optional choice that will flare up your ninja style even more.

    Start playing an instrument and join a band. Typically, this band will not be comprised of only Ninja Punks since at the moment, it is a small population.

    Buy some tokens for sparring with your buddies in free time.

    You are your own government, so in essence, you are anarcho punk. Anarchy is about the destruction of government and social convention. Depending on the government and the social convention you can be a good or bad anarchist. You are a warrior of the night, and you listen to good music.

    Vandalism is not to be made unless necessary. For example, spraying graffiti is artistic, but illegal unless it's your own property. If you use Japanese Shuto , then you're going to make holes in walls, no matter what.


  • Don't be too loud. When did you ever hear of a ninja wanting to be loud, anyway? Of course be loud and proud if you are in a band.
  • Ninja Punks are graceful people.
  • You don't need an overcoat if you have a leather biker jacket.
  • Some bands include The Addicts, Samhain, Misfits
  • Go to anime conventions to get bokken at half price.
  • J-rock bands would be Alice nine., Malice Mizer, Dir en grey, GazettE, Moi dix Mois, Balzac, and more.


  • Being a Ninja Punk has its downsides. You might be called a terrorist by gullible senior citizens when wearing the mask, or be called a goth by ignorant friends.
  • Never go around shouting "Yo! I'm Ninja Punk!" for fun. Only say it when necessary.
  • Never shop from Hot Topic. As most real non-conformists say, that shop screams poser.

Things You'll Need

  • Black Doctor's masks.
