Mystic Warriors: Wrath of the Ninjas (ミスティックウォリアーズ -怒りの忍者- Mystic Warriors - Ikari no Ninja?) is an arcade run and gun video game developed and published by Konami in 1993. It's a spiritual successor to Sunset Riders, never receiving any console ports. The game allows for four player simultaneous gameplay.


Mystic Warriors focus on a group of five modern-day ninjas, and their fight against the evil Skull Corporation, which plots to take over the world. At the beginning of the game one of the ninjas is kidnapped by the villains, the kidnapping victim being decided at random between the non-selected characters, or in case of four simultaneous players being the last remaining character.


The game plays much like Sunset Riders, with a few new additions. The main change is the presence of a health bar in lieu of lives, with players being able to take three hits before dying and with health restorative items being found in the stages. Alongside power-ups and score items players can also find the Ninjutsu, which will either clear the screen of enemies upon being picked up or grant temporary invincibility.


  • There is a cameo appearance of Sunset Riders in the first stage, where a big TV screen show part of Sunset Riders introduction sequence.
