Trivia[]

  • The Japanese name "Bakumaru" is composed of the Japanese word "baku", which probably refers to "bakudan", meaning "bomb", and "maru", a suffix for names that was popular in the Edo period.
  • In their original appearance, Fire Ninja, Jump Ninja, and Pitch Ninja were all named "Chibimaru". "Chibi" is a Japanese word that is used to describe small children or small, "cute" characters.
