Ninjas tell time like bosses
Apart from the obvious skill of using the stars to tell time, apparently ninjas believed that the eyes of a cat are super sensitive. In fact, they believed them to be so sensitive that the cat’s eyes would reflect the movement of the sun and allow them to tell what time of the day it was. Of course just looking at the sun would be simpler, but would it be as cool?

Ninjas carry crickets in their pocket
What better way to cover your already muffled footsteps than having a box of crickets chirping away in your pocket? In feudal Japan, those annoying insects were everywhere so they made for an assassin’s best friend.
