Both are the very very great culture of the japan and china not only in those places but in the whole world. But the question is which is the best and why? Form the history i came to know that ninja's are the modified killers from samurais it is true my friend's but when coming to their skills and positions i think samurai is the great one. ninja's are the secondary although they are very famous but Samurai is the best. what is your opinion.

It's a matter of the task you need performed. The samuri were swordmasters & in straight combat on the battlefield you'd want them. They'd mow a ninja down without sweating. If you were needing stealth you'd go with the ninja. His fighting skills weren't great but his gorilla tactics gave him the edge in the right situations. A samuri could be cought unsuspecting & eliminated before he had time to react. Most likely the most dangerous were the ronin. They were samuri that were not linked to a master ( either because he'd been killed or they'd been banished ). They were more likely to have given up the samuri code & assumed some of the ninjas tactics while still keeping their combat skills. They were often employed as mercinaries.

Your post reminded me that when I was younger...I wanted to be nothing else but to become a ninja just like the old ninja movie when this lady phone repair worker came about a dying ninja so the powers were transfered to her and that she should take revenge. There! I said it just like how I did it when I was younger, no periods.LOL So I definitelywould like to be a ninja!heeheehee
