American Ninja Warrior 13 was the thirteenth season of American Ninja Warrior, and the second season after Drew Drechsel's total victory on American Ninja Warrior 11, disregarding Daniel Gil's recent win on American Ninja Warrior 12 due to the format change.

Due to uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, it was initially unclear how this season's format would look like. However, in late January 2021, competitors started getting calls to compete. Shortly afterwards, details regarding filming were announced:

  • All competitors would start at Tacoma Dome for qualifiers, taped in late March. There were five qualifiers episodes.
  • The top 30 competitors and top 5 women in each qualifiers episode would advance to the semifinals, taped at the Universal Studios Backlot in Los Angeles in mid-April. There were four semifinals episode.
  • Finally, the top 15 competitors and top 3 women in each semifinals episode would advance to the national finals in Las Vegas, taped in May. The $1,000,000 cash prize was reinstated.

While the competition did not return to the format where it "tours" in five or six cities, the national finals returned after missing out during the previous season, and more competitors had been invited to compete. During the qualifiers and semifinals, due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, there were no live audience and no walk-on line. For the national finals, audiences and family members/friends of the competitors in limited numbers had been allowed to attend the taping.

In addition, while the application process was still only open to those who were 19 years old and older, some competitors as young as 15 years old had received special invitations to compete (most of them were former American Ninja Warrior Junior competitors). This change was intended for the previous season, but was tabled due to the modified season.

There were several notable changes made for this season:

  • This season introduced the Split Decision, a point on the course where they had to pick between two different obstacles. This concept is based off Crossroads, a notable VIKING obstacle. It has also been used in multiple international Ninja Warrior formats such as Ninja Israel and Ninja Warrior France:
    • In the qualifiers, the Split Decision occurred at the third obstacle, in which competitors must choose between two different balance obstacles.
    • In the semifinals, the Split Decision occurred at the ninth obstacle, giving competitors the opportunity to choose between an intense upper body obstacle or a difficult balance obstacle.
    • In the national finals, the Split Decision occurred at the eighth and final obstacle of Stage One, giving competitors the opportunity to choose between a faster but more risky obstacle or a slower but safer obstacle.
  • The Power Tower was not used during qualifiers, but did return for the semifinals. The top two competitors from each semifinals episode raced on the Power Tower for the Safety Pass.
  • The Mega Wall returned for the qualifiers, with the same rules from the previous season. Competitors had one attempt to scale the 18-foot Mega Wall, and earned $10,000 if they were successful, but if they fail, they have just one attempt to complete the regular 14.5-foot Warped Wall (it was initially reported that competitors would have two attempts on the regular wall after failing the Mega Wall, but this change was later reverted).
