Tactics

Before Combat If the legendary ninja anticipates danger, the legendary ninja finds a hidden vantage point to observe, often setting up bell traps to alert of approaching threats. Before starting a fight, the legendary ninja prepares several smoke bombs, and if the legendary ninja anticipates a difficult fight, the legendary ninja applies oil of magic weapon to a kunai. When a target nears, the legendary ninja uses invisibility to close the gap and get an opportune strike.

During Combat The legendary ninja fights smart, using smoke bombs to provide cover and hide, dirty tricks to weaken enemies, and sneak attacks by throwing kunai. The legendary ninja only resorts to melee combat when without recourse. The legendary ninja always reserves at least 1 jutsu point so the legendary ninja can be effective with weapons and see through smoke with the fog dweller ability, and if needed, use vanishing trick to escape.

Morale The legendary ninja ruthlessly pursues assignments, but approaches each situation intelligently. If reduced to a quarter of maximum hit points, the legendary ninja will use vanishing trick, invisibility or smoke to flee. The legendary ninja has no qualms with running away or changing plans when the legendary ninja encounters unexpected danger, knowing the legendary ninja may always return to complete a task a different way. She is likely to run or hide from combat if the legendary ninja has nothing to gain from it, regardless of how easily the legendary ninja could win.
