Attacking a target with a weapon deals damage according to how much damage the weapon deals with a -20% to +20% damage increase. Also, attacking with a weapon recovers the user's CP by 5% even if the normal attack hits or misses.
There are 3 different types of skills, Ninjutsu, Taijutsu and Genjutsu. They can be learned from the Academy by purchasing them with Gold. Those that can only be purchased with Tokens are Kinjutsu. Ordinary ninjas can only train in 2 types of Ninjutsu, but with the Ninja Emblem, you can train up to 3 types of Ninjutsu. Besides Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu, a Jounin (Lv. 40 or higher) can learn Talent skills.
- Main article: Ninjutsu
Ninjutsu attacks are divided in 5 elements--Wind, Fire, Thunder, Earth and Water--each one has it's own benefits.
There is a simply calculation to know the damage you are going to give.
|Wind||8 * (level + 1)||8 * (level + 2)||8|
|Water||9 * (level + 1)||10 * (level + 2)||10|
|Earth||10 * (level + 1)||10 * (level + 2)||10|
|Thunder||11 * (level + 1)||11 * (level + 2)||10|
|Fire||12 * (level + 1)||10 * (level + 2)||10|
This means, Wind Ninjutsu level 11 (Twin Tornado) deals an average of 96 (48 + 48) damage unimproved, with a chakra cost of 104, and cooldown of 8.
You also have to add the extra damage bonus that depends on your profile. (Say if you have 10 attribute points in wind, then it increases the wind damage by 10%)
Wind Release (風遁, Fūton) Ninjutsu are weak, but you can have more evasion and your speed increases.
Weakness of pure wind: Very low damage.
Weakness cover: Using anything that increases damage slightly helps, ie. Blade of Wind, Hidden Among Rocks. Preferrence of Deadly Performance also helps a lot thanks to Samurai: One Sword.
Today, there are 41 Wind Ninjutsu that can be purchased from the Academy, six of them are Kinjutsu and three of them are SNF Summoning Ninjutsu. But there are 15 upgraded Kinjutsu in the Advanced Academy and 3 event Kinjutsu, making a total of 59 Wind Ninjutsu.
Fire Release (火遁, Katon) Ninjutsu has the ability to deal high damage, making it the strongest among all Ninjutsus.
Weakness of pure fire: No defense.
Weakness cover: Water + Fire means both offense and defense, while using jutsus that helps your CP ensures that you don't run out of CP quickly. Preferrence of Dark Eye allows you to charge more CP so you can use more jutsus over and over. Earth makes you a tank who deals high damage and takes low damage. Wind gives evasion.
Today, there are 38 Fire Ninjutsu that can be purchased from the Academy, six of them are Kinjutsu and three of them are SNF Summoning Ninjutsu. But there are 15 upgraded Kinjutsu in the Advanced Academy and 3 event Kinjutsu, making a total of 59 Fire Ninjutsu.
Lightning Release (雷遁, Raiton) Ninjutsu (known as "Thunder" in Ninja Saga) are not as strong as Fire, but they are strong and are based on critical hits and critical damaging.
Weakness of pure thunder: Very high CP consumption.
Weakness cover: Anything that helps your CP can be good, ie, Water Renewal, Earth Absorption. Preferrence of the extreme talent Dark Eye definitely helps.
Today, there are 41 Thunder (Lightning) Ninjutsu that can be purchased from the Academy, six of them are Kinjutsu and three of them are SNF Summoning Ninjutsu. But there are 15 upgraded Kinjutsu in the Advanced Academy and 3 event Kinjutsu, making a total of 59 Thunder Ninjutsu.
Water Release (水遁, Suiton) Ninjutsu are weak but they are a bit stronger than Wind Ninjutsu. But with the capability of healing HP and based on CP. This is a nice support element.
Weakness of pure water: Low damage per CP.
Weakness cover: Bleeding or Expose Defense debuffs amplifies your damage, so does Strengthen buff. Usage of Hidden Among Rocks is better, Armor of Narukami gives 15% accuracy, which ensures that your foe can't do some dodges as well the critical and damage bonuses.
Today, there are 52 Water Ninjutsu that can be purchased from the Academy, six of them are Kinjutsu, twelve of them are Refresh healing skills, and three of them are SNF Summoning Ninjutsu.

- Main article: Talent
Talent are a unique series of skills that can be learned only if a player is at least 40 and passed the Jounin Exam. There are two types of Talent a player can learn at a specific level, Extreme Talent at level 40 and Secret Talent at level 50 and 60.
While a player can only have up to a set of eight Jutsu including Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, and Taijutsu, skills that are from Talents are not added to the user's set of Jutsu. Talent skills have their own set of skills that players can have up to including five passive skills, and eight active skills so there are 13 spaces but a player would only be able to have up to 12 spaces.
Purchasing a Talent skill is different from purchasing a Jutsu. In the Academy, techniques are bought with Gold or Tokens. Talent skills are purchased with Talent Points (TP) which can be earned by doing TP Training missions or receiving them as gifts by friends. Also, unlike normal skills, Talent skills can be upgraded to higher levels giving higher effect, damage, and chakra consumption. The maximum level a talent skill can be to is level 10. Each level which will be upgraded, user have to spend TP which can be acquired by doing TP Training or get from other players.
In every type of talent has the same mount of consumption to upgrade their skill:
|Upgrade to||TP Consumption|
Extreme Talent can be learned at level 40 after a player becomes a Jounin. A Jounin can only learn one of the four Extreme Talents and cannot change once purchased.
Each Extreme Talents contains a set of six Talent skills, two or three of the skills are passive skills. There are six Extreme Talents including Eye of Mirror, Eight Extremities, Dark Eye, Deadly Performance, Saint Power, and Insect Symbiosis.
Secret Talents can be learned at level 50 and at level 60. Unlike Extreme Talents, players can learn up to two Secret Talents, one after reaching level 50 and a second after reaching maximum level 60. Like Extreme Talents, when learning a Secret Talent, the player cannot change but the player can learn an additional Secret Talent later.
Each Secret Talent contains a set of three Talent skills including one passive skill and two active skills for each one. There are five Secret Talents including Demon Sound, Explosive Lava, Hidden Silhouette, Enraged Forest, and Icy Crystal.
- Main article: Senjutsu
Senjutsu is unlocked once the player beats the Sennin Campaign after reaching level 80.
At first the player can take up to 4 Senjutsu into battle, but every 10 levels after 80 the count increases by one to a maximum of 8 Senjutsu that can be used in battle.
Currently only one Senjutsu has been released, but more are to come once the Senjutsu Mountain is unlocked to players by the developers.
- Main article: Status Effects
Status effects (or battle effects) are effects that causes ailments or other effects that can buff or debuff a target, making the target stronger or weaker at a point. Most status effects lasts for a number a turns but there are some effects, which aren't really status effects, that lasts for an instant, which could remove buffs/debuffs, increase/decrease cooldown for skills, etc.
