- "I'm Zubashi! The Blood Red Ninja!"
- —Zubashi's introduction in "What Would Waluigi Do?"
One day, Ryu was eating a banana, but couldn't finish it. Zubashi offered to do it and Ryu passed it to him, jokingly referring to him as "friend." Thus, this led him to believe that he was Ryu's friend.
He also apparently had a history with Morgan, which apparently led to them becoming enemies.
In the episode "Ninjas Galore!", Zubashi's ninjas encounter Ryu on the battlefield, but are easily defeated. Zubashi appears and is angered to find out that Ryu doesn't remember him. He then performs one of Ninja Technique Fireball Breath against Ryu, but manages to defeat him, despite this powerful move. ("Ninjas GALORE!")
Later on, on instruction from his employer, Zubashi warns Ryu that he will pay the price if he doesn't has stop helping the heroes and walks away. He later appears with the ninjas to confront Luigi, Wario, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, and Ness. ("What Would Waluigi Do?!") As his ninjas battle the heroes he lounges on the swing set drinking wine, claiming that he will fight the worthy opponent that is the last one standing. After the heroes defeat his ninjas, they confront him and Zubashi begins to leave. But when they mispronounce his name, he becomes angry and prepares to preform his secret technique: Grand Fire Explosion. However, he is easily knocked out by Luigi before he performs it. ("Plumbers and Ninjas and Snakes OH MY!")
Zubashi is a member of the Legion of Villains. He is in charge of the ninja army. Zubashi leads a group of ninjas in an attack on the Darkness' base, only to have his ninjas overpowered by the Darkness' pirates and is knocked out by Ken. ("PIRATES VS NINJAS!")
Later, Zubashi meets with Nox Decious to discuss his plan to get rid of the Darkness once and for all. He tells Zubashi that he and his ninjas will have to distract the Darkness' pirates while he fights Darkness uninterrupted. ("An Unexpected? Proposal") Afterwards, he and Master Gangles go on a double-date with two girls who were led to believe that they would win $10,000 by meeting them. When they learn otherwise, they leave, but Zubashi is confident that they will return. ("The Return Of The Great Purple Hope!")
Zubashi learns from Gangles that several ninjas have begun questioning his authority and have joined Blaire Vherestorm in attacking the Mushroom Force. This angers him, but he instead decides to leave them because they can't spare too many troops. ("Operation: Vherestorm")
After Blaire fails, Zubashi reassures an angry Decious that the loyal ninjas won't fail him. However, he hasn't a strategy to keep them from failing again. Decious leaves to get King Bowser in on their plan, telling Zubashi and Gangles that he'll have orders for them when he returns. ("A "Brief" Meeting")
After going to see The Adventures of Tintin, ("Imported Sunflowers") Zubashi and Gangles receive orders from Decious to train their top ninjas and make them into the most powerful ninjas the world has ever seen. The two go to train the ninjas, who have become disrespectful and begin to question Zubashi's fighting abilities until Zubashi reminds them that he trained them all in the first place. ("Not these Ninja's Again!")
After the training, Zubashi and Gangles find out that the girls they went on a double date with think that the two of them want to get together with them, shocking them. Then they meet with Decious, who tells them that the attack will begin soon. Until then, Zubashi and Gangles go to Taco Bell. ("Episode 73") When they return, Decious declares it time for war and orders Zubashi and Gangles to ready the troops. (""As the Fanboy's say, Only Link can defeat Ganon"!")
Zubashi, Master Gangles and the ninjas confront Captain Morgan, Pirate Crunch, and the pirates on the battlefield, where Zubashi addresses Morgan, asking him to apologize for what he did to him. However, Morgan can't remember Zubashi or ever doing him any wrong, nor can he pronounce his name right. Zubashi is about to initiate a flashback, but Gangles and the ninjas stop him by explaining that he's gonna show a flashback of him and Morgan as friends and then how Morgan betrayed him, then the audience will realise they were never friends to be with. In short, he'll just be making an ass of himself. Deciding to be the judge of himself, Zubashi gives the order to attack and the battle begins. During the fight, Zubashi is able to use the Ninja Technique Wind Barrier to knock over several pirates. He then remarks on a single ninja who is much more skilled in martial arts than them, telling him to tone it down, as he's making the others look bad.
Finally, it boils down to just Zubashi and Gangles against Morgan. Morgan prepares to finish them off with his Pirate Technique "Super Burning Lava Hot Rum Breath," but only succeeds in drinking himself into a coma after hyping up Zubashi and Gangles for no reason. Discouraged, Zubashi and Gangles leave to go see a movie together.
Zubashi appeared in Stupid Mario Football as the main antagonist.
Zubashi is a very comedic ninja that acts tough. He becomes easily angered when Ryu constantly forgets him and when people mispronounce his name.
During the battle with the heroes, he is seen to be laid-back and prefers not to get into the action. He is also extremely persistent, refusing to give up a battle, even when it is apparent that he and his ninjas cannot win.
Abilities / SkillsEdit
Zubashi can perform Ninja Techniques like other ninjas. So far, he has performed Fireball Breath against Ryu and was about to perform Grand Fire Explosion against the heroes, but was easily knocked out by Luigi before he could perform it.
Zubashi may be more powerful than he seems as he is knowledgeable enough in ninja arts to train his fellow ninjas and increase their strength exponentially.
- According to one ninja in the episode "Not these Ninja's Again!", a rumor exists that Zubashi is the blood red ninja only because he dyed his outfit red. This, however, has been proven to be false.
- Zubashi is one of four villains that came from Season Four and returned in Season Five, the others being Pauline, Tommy Vercetti, and Blaire Vherestorm.
- He is one of the three members of the Legion of Villains to never die.
- Zubashi's hair is red in "Plumbers and Ninjas and Snakes OH MY!". This is because Rich Alvarez had sprayed his hair red for his role as the Darkness in the same episode.
- Alvarez has stated the possibility of a Zubashi and Master Gangles spin-off show. However, this hasn't been confirmed yet.
