  • Clothing and Appearance Differences and similarities:
  • The samurai were warriors and dressed like warriors. Though it is more colorful and brighter than the Ninja clothes, the samurai clothes still have a bleak ambiance. It covers the traditional “Kimono“, but the samurai version is made from cotton instead of silk to symbolize its high social status. Generally very bright and ostentatious colors should be avoided, but this has changed during the wars in which the samurai carried the colors of their clans. During the wars, samurai wore armor specially designed over their own kimonos. The armor is made to be very flexible and lightweight with agility.


  • Ninjas are considered as dark warriors and this is reflected in their clothes. Ninjas who are masters of privacy and guerrilla tactics have embraced the clothes that support them in their work. They were wearing uniforms that only covered their entire black body, leaving their eyes open. This outfit supports ninjas camouflage in the dark. Ninjas rarely wear any armor, and their armor would always be very light when worn.


  • Differences and similarities in War Techniques:
  • All samurai’s skills needed to learn the most basic sword art. More experienced warriors trained themselves in other martial arts, such as the use of archery and other weapons. The highest classes of Samurai trained themselves on “Daito-Ryu Aiki-jujutsu“. “Daito-Ryu Aiki-jujutsu” was regarded as the best form of battle technique made at that time, without using any weapons.


  • Ninjas have developed an entirely new form of martial arts to complete their espionage tasks. “Ninjutsu” is a systematic martial arts focussed on speed and agility, and ninjas were able to train them to fulfill all difficult and dangerous tasks.

  • Differences and similarities in their commitment:
  • The samurai are the highest-ranking officers of the Japanese army. Their loyalty is in the federal lords. Bushido is full of brave samurai stories and legends that defend samurai for their purposes if necessary, and reveal their lives for the service of the Japanese historic federal beauties and leydis.


  • Ninjas are tied only to their clan, and when the money is changed, the clan’s loyalty also changes. Such loyalty seems superficial, but for many years the legend of ninja has been known for decades for the interests of other clan members.


  • Differences and similarities in their Lifestyle:
  • Samurai have strict rules, which are called “Bushido” or samurai way. Nitobe Inazo, author of the book “Bushido: The Soul of Japan” describes Bushido as the code of ethical and moral principles that every samurai should consider. The code contains largely unspecified and non-written. It is the result of years of military training and discipline. Bushido defines a samurai and those who fail to obey his rules are severely punished. Bushidon’s ethical codes include honor, courage, loyalty, self-control.


  • On the other hand, ninjas do not have codes that govern them, they are mercenaries. Yet they are still said to be one of the best warrior races in human history. Ninjas were hardworking, patient, creative, disciplined and intelligent. For this reason, even though they lacked some of the fine qualities of the samurai, they still managed to print their names.


  • As a result, we will not be able to figure out who is superior until someone brings together a ninja and a samurai and challenges each other. But we know that both ninjas and samurai are extraordinary warriors with differences in ideologies, lifestyles and war techniques. Both are hardworking, determined and have their own methods of achieving their goals.
