In reality the Ninjas were simple farmers who have lived a peaceful life. But due to the domination of the Kings and the Samurais (Japanese Warriors). The Ninjas started to take arms and fight for their rights. In modern days, Ninjas is person who has mastered the art of Ninjistsu (an ancient martial art). They originated form somewhere around 15 century and have been masters in espionage, sabotage and surprise attacks
The Ninjas do have some weapons which they keep in hand and use it either for attack or defense. One of them which have become quite popular is the Shuriken Stars which have become quite popular in both movies and animated series too. The Katana was also one of the major weapons on which also was used by the Samurais. A pair of kusarigama, also known as a pair of axe has been use for a long time.
The media has been an instrument through which we get to know a lot about our predecessors from and around the world. The Ninjas are one amongst those who have made a huge contribution in the media industry.
Although what has been shown in the movies are quite, but inreality the Ninjas were very agile and tactful in nature who gave a tough competition to other warriors.
