Greninja is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. It was confirmed on June 30, 2016 along with many other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. 4. Yūji Ueda (Japanese) and Billy Bob Thompson (English) provide the role for Greninja in this fighting game using voice clips recycled from Super Smash Bros. 4.

Description

Greninja is a bipedal, frog Pokémon, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #658 as the "Ninja Pokémon". It is a dual Water/Dark-type Pokémon and the final evolved form of the starter Pokémon Froakie, after having evolved from Frogadier at level 36 onward. As Froakie, Greninja is one of the Kalos region's three starter Pokémon.

According to the Pokédex and based on its statistics in the Pokémon games, Greninja is extremely fast, to the point that it has the highest raw speed statistic of any Water-type Pokémon or fully evolved starter Pokémon. Fittingly, it relies on this speed in battle to confound its prey with swift, ninja-like grace before striking with its Water Shuriken move, which is said to be able to shear metal. In exchange, however, it is rather frail because of its low defenses.

In the Pokémon games, Greninja has access to numerous unique abilities. In addition to Water Shuriken, which it uses in Super Smash Bros., it was the only Pokémon able to learn Mat Block, where it flips a tatami mat in front of itself to shield itself and its allies from incoming attacks. In addition to these two unique moves, it has access to a diverse range of offensive and status moves; it can even uniquely take advantage of them with its rare Hidden Ability Protean, which changes its type to match each move it uses and ensures it gets the maximum possible power out of every attack.
