The term "modern American ninja" refers to present-day Americans who have received ninjutsu training. Modern ninja from Japan are often depicted as using ancient devices and weapons, perhaps because of the "flavor" that this gives them. American ninja, on the other hand, usually have no reluctance to use the technology of modern warfare and espionage. Modern American ninja are more likely than any other type of ninja to use firearms, electronic devices and similar high-tech gadgetry.
