Variations

There are two versions of the packaged Bushido. The early version listed the incorrect ninja move and included corrected instructions on a special insert. The other version had the correct ninja move listed. This early version also listed the small parts warning above the figure in white text. Later card printings have the text next to the figure in black text on a gray background.

Body Construction

Bushido's chest, arms, waist, and legs were originally used to create Nunchuk (1992). The entire mold was re-used in 1994 to create Shadow Ninjas Bushido (v2).

Like all the Ninja Force figures, Bushido's body was designed with a "real ninja move." Bushido's spring-loaded right arm could be raised up, then released, causing it to spring down in a chopping motion.

International Variants

In Canada, Bushido was released in dual-language packaging.
