The age of Medieval Japan and you're given a chance to be reincarnated; which of the two would you want to be and why?I want to be a ninja because of their mystic arts but a part of me also cry for the Bushido code of the Samurai.

if i were given a chance, i'd rather be a ninja. they have a lot of skills, and can surely beat a samurai anytime. after all in ancient times, bow and arrows are the main weapons of a samurai. it was only in later times that the japanese favored swords for samurai. so with bow and arrows as a weapon, they're likely to be killed by shuriken alone.=)

But the bows and arrows can reach a longer distance than that of a thrown shuriken. Surely, its an advantage for the samurai to shoot the ninjas first before they get close. I agree that the ninjas are skillful and dexterous. They can run long distances and jump over roofs because of their light clothing unlike Samurais who are usually slow and bulky with all those armors and stuffs. Even without their armors then usually run but not as fast as the ninjas.. or so the movies protrayed.

According to my grandmother, part of our family came from samurai -- so I will have to say samurai. Ninja are too secretive, too singular in their lives to appeal to me.

Wow! I kinda envy you. I've always wanted to have that japanese/samurai blood in me. But circumstances/destiny called me to be a Filipino so there. :)

Yes, they are.. So now I want a hybrid. The power of the samurai and the agility of the ninja.

I think I would like to own a few of each because I would like to be the emperor.

Emperor is not part of the trivia... But that would really rule! Just hope you'll have loyal samurai and ninja so that they won't assasinate you. heh

ninja uses many weapons and will cheat to win, samurai code of honor would get him beat in every area except a pro wrestling ring :P
