The Quintuple Steps is an obstacle first introduced on American Ninja Warrior 1 as the first obstacle in qualifying and semifinal. Competitors must go across five angled steps to the landing platform (in a similar fashion with the Rokudantobi, except with farther spacing and different design for the steps).
On American Ninja Warrior 2 and American Ninja Warrior 3, the Quad Steps replaced this obstacle as the first obstacle in qualifying and semifinal, and then on American Ninja Warrior 4 in every qualifying region.
On American Ninja Warrior 5, the Quintuple Steps returned, once again as the first obstacle in every qualifying city, and had been used until American Ninja Warrior 7, before being replaced by the Floating Steps on American Ninja Warrior 8.
For the Quintuple Steps on American Ninja Warrior 1 and American Ninja Warrior 5, the left side of the obstacle has two steps, while the right side has three steps. However, on American Ninja Warrior 6 and American Ninja Warrior 7, the left side of the obstacle has three steps, while the right side has two steps.
During the broadcast of American Ninja Warrior 5's Venice Beach finals, it was revealed that 43 out of 125 competitors had been taken out by this obstacle during Venice Beach qualifiers.
The Quintuple Steps has been used in almost all of SASUKE/Ninja Warrior's international formats, including:
- Ninja Warrior UK,
- Australian Ninja Warrior,
- Ninja Warrior Sweden,
- Ninja Warrior Germany, and
- SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia.
- During SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia: International Competition, the steps were made steeper, which made it harder for the competitors to traverse.
