Ninjala: Van

Meet Van, one of the ninja descendants competing in the legendary Ninjala Tournament to prove that he’s the best.

Always upbeat, Van is one of the ninja descendants eager to enter the Ninjala Tournament.

While he still hasn’t quite adjusted to all of the ninja stuff, yet, his skills as a sporting prodigy are helping Van get to grips with Ninjala very quickly.

About Van

Image Source: Ninjala

Van is known by his friends as being cheerful, friendly, and above all else, a basketball whizz. Still only a boy and living with his mother, Van’s natural talent for the sport of basketball has him hailed as a prodigy.

Being such an athletic sport, there’s a good chance that Van’s ninja ancestry is playing a part in his success on the basketball court.

Despite being so cheerful all of the time, Van’s lived through tough times. When his parents separated, his father’s house was destroyed in a fire.

However, it was following the blaze that both Van and his father discovered that they are descendants of an ancient ninja clan.


While there are many customisation items available for those who use Van as their character, with more becoming available in each season pass, his default attire is white and purple spiked hair, a red puffer vest, and jeans.
