American Ninja Warrior 13's Split Decision in the first episode of qualifiers

The Split Decision is a new feature, firstly introduced on American Ninja Warrior 13.

In essence, this feature is a point on the course where the competitors will have to pick between two different obstacles, a very similar feature to that of the Crossroads in VIKING, and has been used in multiple international Ninja Warrior formats such as Ninja Israel and Ninja Warrior France, or also can be traced to the split-stage format of SASUKE Vietnam.

This format appears during both qualifiers and semifinals:

  • In qualifiers, the Split Decision will occur on the third obstacle, in which competitors must choose between two different balance type obstacles in order to advance.
  • In semifinals, the Split Decision will occur on the ninth obstacle, giving competitors the opportunity to choose between an upper-body intensive obstacle or a heavily modified balance-type obstacle.
