The Ninja Killer is a feature of the Ninja Warrior series. It is a replay camera of past competitors.

Usually near the middle or end of an episode, the Ninja Killer replays the past victims who have fallen subject to the muddy waters... it then focuses on one particular obstacle, usually the one with the most kills, and replays the failures of the obstacle. A lot of them are humorous defeats, and the obstacle that claims them is usually credited.

All obstacles that have eliminated more competitors than any other in a certain stage, certain competition, or episode.
