    That's not a ninja, that's a cyborg.

    As for the in-game counterpart, it depends on what "ninja" means for you. Realistically looking, a ninja would be an Expert in 3E, but you're probably thinking of something more fantastical. Most (if not all) editions of D&D have offered a Ninja class in splat books (Oriental Adventures, The Complete Ninja Handbook, Complete Adventurer, Ultimate Combat, etc.), so you could look at those and compare them to the standard EE classes. Personally, I'd go for Assassin.

    The Complete Adventurer had a ninja base class and it was pretty much a monk/rogue hybrid. Wisdom boost to AC, reduced sneak attack, and a per-day HIPS ability.

    Yep, HiPS. I think Pathfinder's ninja is the most well-rounded and interesting variant of the bunch.
