Hanzo is a mercenary ronin for Ninja All-Stars. Ronin bring potent new abilities to a player’s team that are entirely unique to them. As mercenaries, ronin may be used by any player, on any team. This makes ronin popular choices for every team, regardless of clan, since they may be used to supplement a team’s weaknesses in battle or further augment their strengths.
He features prominently in the Ninja All-Stars 2016 organized play league, the Saga of Hanzo. In the league, players earn exclusive alternate-profile cards, ensuring his place as one of the most versatile and popular ronin in Ninja All-Stars!
Hanzo has been called many things over his long and storied life: master, teacher, monster, and traitor. His team won the Moonlight Tournament twenty-two years ago through legendary speed and infamous cunning. He displayed all these qualities in the Sun Empire, but added another – treachery – for the first and only time, a Kagejima shin obi decided to stay with the Sun Court.
Still the Moon Princess has refused to denounce her “wayward hunting hawk”. Some say this is for previous unknown services, others because he still serves the Moon Court.

Shiny Games says about Hanzo
Hanzo is the quintessential sneaky ninja character – he can always start in Stealth, he doesn’t need to make rolls when moving through influence zones in Stealth and gets double the normal bonus attacking from Stealth. His only downside is his 25 point cost, so use him wisely!
Hanzo isn’t shown in the Ninja All-Stars rulebook – he’s that secret! We’ve included a clearer picture of his card above so you can see for yourself what he’s capable of.
