|“||Look, let me give you a tip: learn to be like a weed, think like a poisonous insect, and honor your own supporting role. Weeds are everywhere, we will never be rid of poisonous insects, and the supporting roles blend into the background. Taking all of that together and condensing it gives you the essence of what a ninja is.||„|
|~ Hattori Hanzou|
Hattori Hanzou is a ninja of the pure line of the Hattori clan. In spite of his high position, he left his clan to live in Academy City while hiding his identity and status as a ninja. He ended up joining the biggest Skill-Out faction under Komaba Ritoku's command and befriending both Komaba and Hamazura Shiage. After Komaba's death and Hamazura's abdication, Hanzou became the next leader of their Skill-Out faction. Despite having parted ways he's still friends with Shiage and has helped him on occasion. He also temporarily took over Komaba's role in protecting Fremea Seivelun from harm.

- Martial Arts/Ninja Training: Hanzou is a trained ninja and martial artist, capable of defeating the similarly skilled Kuruwa in battle and act as the leader of the biggest faction in Skill-Out. Unlike Kuruwa, Hanzou prefers to use actual ninja weapons, like the uchine, an extremely short arrow only about 15 centimeters long. It is used for stabbing and not throwing, and is mostly used for assassinations. In spite of the short range of the weapon, Hanzou's ninja skills allow him to compensate for its drawbacks. Due to his training, Hanzou prefers to stick to the ninja's tenets and retreat if his first attack fails to defeat his enemy, though he's willing to stay and fight if the situation requires it.
- Firearms: Hanzou is also knowledgeable in the use of handguns, usually carrying at least one with him.
- Modified Cell Phone: Hanzou carries a modified cell phone that can pick up electromagnetic waves not intended for normal phones, like Anti-Skill radio signals.
- Shield AED: A device that automatically applies an electric shock to Hanzou's chest in response to the level of his brain waves, it was capable of making him regain consciousness 3 seconds after he had been knocked out by the shockwave caused by a smoothbore gun's shell.
- MAV: Hanzou carries with him a 30 cm square piece of thick waterproof paper. By using the paper to make a paper airplane and adding a couple of motors about the size of the nail on his pinky, some small flaps and a rudder, and taping on a camera and transceiver, Hanzou can create a MAV (Micro Air Vehicle) that can be used as a remotely controlled flying camera. The MAV can fly at 150 km/h, has an operating range of a few kilometers and its data can be sent to any cell phone.
