American Ninja Warrior nicknames

New, comments

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

UPDATE: It’s that time of year again! The time when we trot out our list of American Ninja Warrior nicknames and ask for your help updating it. This list was first started in 2018 and we love seeing it grow year after year.

We’ve added in the rookie nicknames from season 13 that we could think of. But we feel like we’ve definitely missed some! Let us know who needs to be added to this list.

Time for the next round of updates.


It all started 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. That was just the beginning.

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!
