American Ninja Warrior nicknames

New, 37 comments

Well, at least all of the nicknames we can think of.

UPDATE: I was lying in bed the other night thinking about American Ninja Warrior. (Yes, I think about Ninja Warrior that much.) Suddenly I realized, “Whoa, when was the last time the list of Ninja nicknames was updated?”

So, I checked. November 30, 2018. 2018!!! A lot has happened since then. Oodles of Ninjas with nicknames have climbed the ranks. Let’s get back on this. Take a look at the list of names you, the readers, helped me put together way back in 2018. Then, jump down to the comments section and start sharing the new nicknames that need to be added.

Thanks for your help! - Nikki


A few weeks ago, you helped us out with a request from Matt Iseman. He wanted to take a look at a list of every Ninja Warrior nickname that’s ever been used.

Yeah. That’s a lot of names.

So we asked you to help us out and share the names that came to your mind. We just dug through those comments and compiled them into the list below. When we removed duplicates, it came down to 89 nicknames.

There is some give and take in this list. For example, we did decide to include nicknames that encompassed more than one Ninja, like the Brazi Bros and the Towers of Power. We’re trying to limit this to names that have been used on the American Ninja Warrior show.

So, the question is: Do you think that’s all of them? If seeing this list suddenly makes you remember a few more names, leave them in the comments! Let’s keep this thing growing!

Update on November 30, 2019: We’re at 148 names now!
