Distraction is the 2nd upgrade on path 2 for the Ninja Monkey in BTD5. It costs $300 (Easy), $350 (Medium), $380 (Hard), and $420 (Impoppable). Some bloons struck by the Ninja's weapons will become distracted and move the wrong way temporarily after buying the upgrade. However, do not count on this to stop bloons from making it through. It is only a nice additional bonus, not something to be relied on. The Summon Whirlwind and Tempest Tornado upgrades for the Monkey Apprentice are much more efficient and reliable at sending bloons back to the start.

In BTD6, this upgrade makes a return. It is now the first Path 2 upgrade for the Ninja Monkey. Distraction can blowback bloons with a chance of 15%. It costs $300 (Easy), $350 (Medium), $380 (Hard), and $420 (Impoppable).

Tips[edit | edit source]

BTD5[edit | edit source]

  • Distraction is very useful in combination with a couple of other Distraction Ninjas or a Bloonjitsu, which in particular allows it to reliably send back leftover Ceramics backwards quite reliably.

BTD6[edit | edit source]

  • Since popular higher upgrades cannot have both Distraction and Seeking Shuriken at the same time, it is best to keep high-level Distraction Ninjas near the path that leads the exit.
