SASUKE Vietnam 4 (also known as SASUKE Vietnam 2018) is the second tournament after Lê Văn Thực, David Campbell and Nguyễn Phước Huynh's kanzenseiha and as the fourth season of SASUKE / Ninja Warrior format in Vietnam. It was officially announced by VTV on Facebook in January 10, 2018.

Thành Trung returned as the host for his third consecutive season. Minh Xù replaced Pham Anh Khoa as the co-host on Stage 1A, but he was replaced Tuyền Tăng as the sideline reporter on Stage 1B, Stage 2, and Stage 3. Tăng Thanh Tuyền (Tuyền Tăng) replaced Thiều Bảo Trang as the sideline reporter on Stage 1A. Also, some celebrities (includung Ốc Thanh Vân, Miko Lan Trinh, Liễu Hà Trinh, Trương Quốc Bảo, Hồng Phúc,...) appeared as the co-hosts in some episodes.

Also, for the first time ever, the logo of SASUKE Vietnam was changed (excluding the color changes for the logo during the first three seasons of SASUKE Vietnam).

A new form of competition is introduced, when competitors will be divided into groups to compete.

Female competitors were not given any time limit to complete Stage One and Two. Some women failed Stage One but still had a wildcard to continue the season as a special competitor.

The show will be broadcast at 12 p.m on every Saturday on VTV3, starting from August 18, 2018 to January 12, 2019.

Auditions

Auditions were held in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City. The auditions have 4 challenges. The maximum score for each challenge is 10 points. The time limit for the first 3 challenge was 1 minute.

① Pull-up (40 times)

If a competitor cannot do at least 5 pull-ups, he will be eliminated immediately.

② Push-up (60 times)

If a competitor cannot do at least 7 push-ups, he will be eliminated immediately.

③ 60-kg tire flipping (40 times)

If a competitor cannot flip the tire at least 5 times, he will be eliminated immediately.

④ 100m running in 20.4 seconds

The competitor need to run 25m, turn back, run 25m, turn back, ... until he finishes 100m. The time limit for this challenge is 29 seconds.

This season, 161 competitors will compete in the national finals, of which 25 are foreign competitors, 10 are female competitors and 30 are celebrities. However, for the first time ever, international competitors do not need to participate in the qualifiers. Instead, they need to send a video confirmed that they had competed in any SASUKE/Ninja Warrior tournament or participated in any physical competition.

Competitors reported that although the results are combined, the playing fields in the auditions are not exactly the same. For example, in Hanoi's audition, the 20.4 seconds was the time limit for the minimum score in 100m running; however, in Ho Chi Minh's audition, 20.4 seconds was the time limit for the maximum score (10 points).

Vietnamese competitors also complaint that there are too many slots in the final for celebrity and international competitors. Also,
