The Dragon Ninjas are the main antagonists of the 1988 arcade game Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja.
In Washington D.C., where President Ronnie (based on U.S. President Ronald Reagan) has been abducted by the evil Ninjas led by an enigmatic Dragon Ninja. The game's intro begins with the following introduction: "Rampant ninja related crimes these days... White House is not exception...". As soon as that occurs, a Secret Service agent asks two street-smart brawlers, the "Bad Dudes" named Blade and Striker: "President Ronnie has been kidnapped by the ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue Ronnie?"
After hearing that, the Bad Dudes pursue the Dragon Ninja through the New York City streets, a moving big rig truck, a large sewer, a forest, a freight train (presumed to be Southern Pacific) on an old mid-western line, a cave and into an underground warehouse in order to save President Ronnie.
The Dragon Ninja
The Dragon Ninja is the titular villain from Bad Dudes Vs Dragon Ninja, acting as the game's final boss. He commands an army of ninjas, who have been committing crimes all over. Obssessed with conquering the world with Ninjutsu, The Dragon Ninja believed there is no better way to conquer the world by kidnapping the president of the world's most powerful country, The POTUS and The Dragon Ninja taking his place. They kidnap the President Ronnie, which prompts the army to send the two Bad Dudes to rescue the president and teach those ninjas a lesson, armed only with their fists. They beat up all of the evil ninjas and finally rescue Ronnie after defeating the Dragon Ninja.
The player will face the Dragon Ninja after defeating all previous bosses in succession. He will just stay high on his helicopter throwing explosives below while calling dogs to attack the player.
- The Japanese and English language versions' endings of the game differ.
- In the English version, after the Bad Dudes defeat the Dragon Ninja, they celebrate by eating burgers with President Ronnie. At the very end, President Ronnie is seen holding a burger while standing between the Bad Dudes. Behind them are many security guards with the White House behind them.
- In the Japanese version, President Ronnie gave the Bad Dudes a statue of them as reward. The Bad Dudes are seen leaning against a fence on a sidewalk next to their statue. Unlike the ending of the international version, the Japanese version's ending shows a list of nearly every enemy in the game with their names (except the unnamed green ninja boss that multiplies himself), while caricature faces of the game developers appear next to the names of the game's staff. The background music played in both versions' endings is also completely different.
