The Ninjoe is an enemy in Super Paper Mario. Its name is a portmanteau of the words "ninja", Japanese mercenaries, and "Joe", a generic name. The Ninjoe is found assisting Sammer Guys in Sammer's Kingdom, and on their own in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. It is a quick foe, and often throws ninja stars at the player. The Ninjoe's throwing star attack can be destroyed but it will only give the player 10 points for their score. Ninjoes will additionly attempt to become a decoy as a bomb resembling Boomer on occasion trying to trick Mario and his party causing them damage and making it slighty harder to defeat than most enemies. While they may not be much of a threat alone, when they are encountered in groups, as they often are in the Pit of 100 Trials, they can become extremely dangerous.
