What happens to ninjas when they get too old and portly for assassinating Shoguns? They take up golf, naturally. Few games were daring enough to combine the genres of side-scrolling beat-em-up and golf simulation the way Ninja Golf did, so coming up with a good image to represent both these worlds was important. Is the fact this Ninja looks a bit over the hill and rotund intentional? Perhaps. And hanging his nunchucks on the clubs was definitely a nice touch - practical... yet deadly. Though I'm not sure about the placement of those golf balls.
