According to its profile, the Shinobi was once ridden by a famed ninja. It can be purchased at the shop for 1,700 Rings.

As a Skate type Extreme Gear, the Shinobi heavily resembles a pair of roller skates. It is covered with light purple accents with red recesses, and has white vamps and dark yellow hexagonal tessellations wrapped around the section above the ankles. It has small glass-like domes covering the mechanical workings on the soles.
