Team Ninja is a Japanese video game company best known for creating the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series.

(November 15, 2001-)

Logo: We see an ocean view in an intense thunderstorm with multiple lightning strikes. Then we see the dark sky and start going up through the clouds. Up the clouds, there are multiple rocky mountains and a sunset sky. The Team NINJA logo, which consists of the word "Team NINJA" in a rough script font with a red cruddy zig-zag drawing below, forms from multiple light ripples and the atmosphere fades to black.

Technique: Amazing CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: Thunderstorms and water splashing, whooshing and then a synth note.

Availability: First seen on Dead or Alive 3 for the Xbox, and can also be seen on every Team Ninja game afterward.

Legacy: If you're afraid of thunderstorms in a dark atmosphere, it may give you a scare. Otherwise, very gorgeous animation!
