7. Ninjas looked like average folk.

Cinema and other forms of culture portray the ninja as a guy in the special mask and whacky black clothes. Though, to be a ninja, it was an art form. Skilled mercenaries are trained to be lethal, and to be lethal you have to be furtive. Hence, they dressed much like ordinary farmers, monks, merchants, and so on. If you were trying to detect the enemy, you wouldn't want to wear those pair who screams I'm a ninja.
