"I love the shuriken!"
Lo Wang, after selecting shuriken.

Shuriken is a sharpened hand-held blade, that can be thrown in Shadow Warrior Classic and it's expansions, Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon. The weapon makes a return in Shadow Warrior (2013).

Overview Edit

Classic Edit

Shurikens are thrown in volleys of 3, and good at dispatching ninjas from both close to medium range. Evil Ninjas brown variant sometimes drop packs of them, and you can recover ones stuck in walls by running up and tapping use on them. The only real benefit is that they can be thrown accurately at long ranges, provided your target is stationary. Lo Wang can hold up to 99 Shurikens at a time.

2013 Edit

In the reboot, Shuriken are used as the last resort ranged attack or to temporarily stun enemies fast. Also, differently from the Classic, Shurikens can't run out and are infinite.

Usage Edit

Shurikens are useful when destroying armed Sticky Mines or when running out of ammo on other weapons.

Trivia Edit

  • In the EU release of the game, Shurikens were replaced with darts.
  • In Shadow Warrior (2013) in Chapter 10, there's a glitch that makes Shuriken to get stuck in a wall and spin for infinite time.
