In Advanced Dungeons & Dragons the Ninja was a class you chose to play, like Thief or Fighter. Bushido was more subtle: the Ninja had a cover class. So if you rolled high enough during character creation to play a Ninja, you rolled again for another class. This other class was the role of your character during daylight, when they weren't up to more covert activities.
