9. “My version of the object, would actually be a combination of two objects that the ninja would carry. The first would be a common kitchen knife, the second would be a ninja onion (it’s like a normal onion, but grows back with ninja magic). The ninja has trained for many a year chopping onions all day and all night, to steel himself against the effects of cutting an onion, ready to use it against those who would stand against him. He sneaks outside of the enemy base and hides just out of sight of a guard who is in front of the only entrance. He starts chopping the onion, and the guard starts crying. With his vision impaired the ninja sneaks past the tearful guard and successfully infiltrates the base. He steathily moves through the base to reach his target, the man who wiped out his entire clan. The knife takes the life of this man, and the ninja disappears into the night. When the body is discovered how the assassination took place is a mystery to all, the only clue that someone was there is the chopped onion surrounding the body…”
10. “Ninja’s are the ultimate beings. One of their distinct characteristics is to embrace tradition. Because of this they can never indulge in technology…..But, if I had my way I would want what Is called the ‘Metal Gear Stealth Box’ – patent pending! A phone sized unit that can be placed on the ground, once powered up it creates a holographic box around the user. The box camouflages perfectly into the background. It is possible te see through these walls, from the INSIDE, but impossible for everyone else to see you. Being holographic it allows the user to reach through these walls for a kill, and even provides a handy place to hide the body too!”
