An animated action movie in vein of old console games. Inspired by and partially borrowed from games like Mortal Kombat, BattleToads, Double Dragon, Street Fighter, and Street of Rage. Chinese movies of 80s-90s starring Jackie Chan and other actors as well as the famous cartoon called xiao xiao.

Wow. Just... wow.
This is really something and I would like thank Tom Fulp, first of all, for creating such place as Newgrounds. Newgrounds staff for noticing my animation and frontpaging it. And newgrounds community for your kind reviews and time to watch Ninja Action. I, honestly, read all of them, but unable to answer them all currently.
But here are answers for some frequently asked questions:
-Yes, it actually took me 9 years to make Ninja Action;
-Music, heard in Ninja Action, is from Yakuza Revenge and used with permission;
-Also, I will upload second part soon.

For 9 years, this was surprisingly smooth and only improved, while staying consistent. After watching the whole thing, the pot on the stove was funny and unexpected.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Outstanding job. Sound could be cleaned up a bit but this was very entertaining. Keep up the good work!

This reminded me of the "Sprite" days. I loved each and every frame in this action packed sequence. Our little protagonist reminded me of Ermac, and a little bit of Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden. I adored how little repitition there was in your characters moveset as well as his enemies. Nice use of making a 2-D plane look 3-D due to your large amount of side steps and grapples. Whatever that guys name is, he must be feared. The ending made me chuckle a bit. All that ass kicking, and he still forgot what he came for. Even Ninjas make mistake. I really respected how you decided not to make him untouchable, allowing him to take damage due to his minor misjudgements. Having small little scenarios in the film were a great attention grabber too. (Especially his developed relationship with the little girl). I see this is your first submission, and I'm really hoping it isn't the last. Keep it up Dex00, you're on point with your solo work. Expect big names to offer colabs with you. You're a hard worker.

Side note: I saw how in your description you were inspired by xiao xiao, a classic stick fight series. You aren't the only one. :)

An absolutely incredible experience!

Awesome visuals, excellent fight coreography, some very funny little in-betweens that let me (and maybe the protagonist) take a breather from the high-paced action, and one heck of a wild ride. I love that each dude took several punches before they went down, which allowed for endless variations of combo moves all throughout the entire ride rather than one long drawn-out multi-kill with the same stale kicks and punches.

And boy, did he have moves. Clearly you take martial arts yourself, don't you? I recognized a few of those more technical moves you threw in there. Sure, it looks like he defended himself with an arm tap, but there is so much more to that move that it's easy to underestimate.

And on a final note: ...that was a big shotgun...
