Champions in Raid: Shadow Legends can be obtained by collecting Shards, however, Ninja can only be collected through logging into the game for seven days, during a specific time.
Raid: Shadow Legends is a popular fantasy-themed mobile gacha game. It takes place in the fictional world of Teleria, which has been colonized by the Dark Lord, Siroth. The game features different adventures for players to take part in.
It is recommended that players familiarize themselves with the Affinity system before they join an adventure. There are four types of Affinities in the game, and players will need to understand them all to succeed. Three of them exist in balance with one another, but the fourth offers no particular disadvantages or advantages over the others.
The following table indicates the name of the Affinity and its properties:
|Name of Affinity||Properties|
|Void (Purple)||This Affinity features no counter or weaknesses against others.|
|Force (Red)||Force has an advantage against Magic but is weak to Spirit.|
|Spirit (Green)||This Affinity has a disadvantage against Magic but is powerful against Force.|
|Magic (Blue)||The Magic Affinity has an advantage against Spirit but is however weak against Force.|
Once the players understand the Affinities, they are able to assemble an army of Champions for battles in deserts, temples, dungeons, and castles defended by enemies. It is important to note that there are four types of Champions: Defence, Health Point, Support and Attack.
When players first start playing the game, they will be able to choose one Champion. However, they are also able to collect more by using Shards, which contain souls of ancient warriors. Once the players have obtained Shards, they are able to summon a warrior at the in-game Portal. It is important to note that there are four different Shards.
The following table indicates the different Shards and the rarity of warriors it can summon:
|Shard name||Rarity of warriors|
|Mystery Shard||This Shard can summon a common, uncommon or a rare warrior.|
|Ancient Shard||Players are able to obtain a rare, epic or legendary warrior if they use an Ancient Shard.|
|Void Shard||The Void Shard can summon a rare, epic or legendary warrior.|
|Sacred Shard||Sacred Shards summon either an epic or legendary warrior.|
One of the champions players are able to obtain in Raid: Shadow Legends is Ninja. He is a legendary Attack Magic Affinity Champion. It is important to note that players are only able to obtain Ninja if they log into the game for seven days between 16 July 2021 and 15 October 2021. He will not be available to be summoned from Ancient Shards and Sacred Shards.
The following table indicates the name of Ninja’s skills, as well as a description of each skill.

|Skill: Hailburn||The Hailburn deals three random attacks. However, each hit has a 75 percent of dealing a health point de-buff for three turns. It also places a perfect veil buff on Ninja for two turns.
