Dogs (犬 inu) are a species of domestic animals found throughout the villages and castle grounds of Japan. Most are used by Samurai guards as watch dogs, to alert them of enemy assassins at night.

Ninja use specially trained dogs referred to as ninken.


Background Information and NotesEdit

  • The best way of dealing with enemy dogs is throwing single a shuriken at them before you are spotted. They will die instantly.
  • All enemy dogs in the Tenchu series have yellow eyes for unknown reasons.
  • Disguises are totally useless against dogs (in contrast to the invisibility Spell).
