The art of bloonjitsu allows Ninjas to throw 5 shurikens at once!
~ Description

Bloonjitsu is the final upgrade on Path 1 for the Ninja Monkey in BTD5, allowing the Bloonjitsu Master to throw 5 shurikens at once.

In BTD6, this upgrade returns, but it now cannot have both Distraction and Seeking Shuriken at the same time. Again, Bloonjitsu allows the Ninja Monkey to throw 5 shurikens per shot instead of 2. It costs the same price as in the original game.



  • Adding many 4/2 Bloonjitsus are extremely reliable against distracting Ceramics and lower bloons, especially in Freeplay Mode.
  • There is no reason not to get the Path 2 upgrades because these two upgrades are both really useful for providing both accuracy (via Seeking Shuriken) and a high chance to distract bloons (via Distraction)


  • Since DPS and shuriken accuracy via Seeking Shuriken are generally more important than a spray of shurikens with a chance of distracting bloons via Distraction, it is best to go along Path 3 instead of Path 2.
  • Bloonjitsu Ninjas are among the best candidates for Berserker Brew and Stronger Stimulant, even after the Version 6.0 Alchemist nerf. This is because they don't shoot so fast as to expire potions so early but at the same time shoots many projectiles at once with good overall pierce and damage. As a result, it is recommended that Bloonjitsus are not upgraded to the Grandmaster Ninja, and are not in range of any Shinobi Tactics ninjas, as these will cause the ninja to use up the buff quicker.
  • One 4-0-2 Ninja costs $5835 on Hard Difficulty.

Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)Edit

This upgrade used to be indirectly cheaper to get in BTD Battles Mobile thanks to Sharp Shurikens and Double Shot getting their prices decreased. However, since update 4.9 the overall cost to get a 4/x Ninja Monkey is now the same as in BTD5.


Nerf Bloonjitsu price increased ($2750 → $3000).




  • A lone 4/2 Bloonjitsu Ninja is nearly capable of popping a MOAB by itself in Bloons Monkey City.
  • A Bloonjitsu Master can pop 4 Pink Bloons in one shot.
  • "Bloonjitsu" may be a pun on "Ninjutsu" or possibly jiu-jitsu, a martial art.
    • In BMC Mobile, it is stated in the Archives of Knowledge description that Bloonjitsu is an "ancient technique of monkey martial arts".
  • If the player buys the Bloonjitsu upgrade, the tower name changes to Bloonjitsu Master.
  • Bloonjitsu costs $3000 on BMC, instead of the $2750 on BTD5. It still costs $2750 on the mobile version.
  • Just like the Ninja Saboteur, the artwork of the Bloonjitsu Master shows her with her finger on her lips.
  • As of September 26, 2013, it has been buffed and thus it shoots even faster than the Ninja Discipline upgrade.

  • A 4/2 Ninja has a very high chance of Distracting a bloon.
  • Strangely, the shurikens all stick together even while seeking.
  • The hood of a Bloonjitsu master is very similar to that of a Glaive Lord or Super Monkey Fan Club monkey. The only difference being color.
  • The Bloonjitsu can shoot every 0.42 seconds without any bonuses from the Monkey Lab.
  • The cheapest possible 4/2 Bloonjitsu in BTDB Mobile normal battles is $4500 in between Version 4.1-4.5, obtained from discounting the original price of $5000 ($500 + $300 + $250 + $250 + $400 + $550 + $2750) by a Village.


  • Unlike BTD5, the Bloonjitsu Ninja Monkey has a rice hat to indicate that it is a Bloonjitsu. Instead, Double Shot upgrade has the previous outfit.
