Shuriken (手裏剣, lit. "throwing blade") are a traditional ninja weapon projectile that comes in various shapes for various purposes. Usually star shaped, Shuriken are implements designed to cause injury when thrown at an enemy, and most Ninja carry them at all times. Due to the disposable nature of these weapons, expensive materials are rarely used in their construction. However, they are crafted with great precision in order to stabilize their trajectory when thrown, thereby increasing accuracy.
- The shuriken cannot be used as a weapon in the Dead or Alive series.
- Shuriken make an appearance as one of Ryu Hayabusa's collectible Survival Mode items and as purchasable items in Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.
- Shuriken can be seen in chasing Kasumi in her Dead or Alive 3 ending.
