It's rarely mentioned that this whole game seems to be an elaborate puppet show. You can even see their strings on the character select screen as they lie on the floor like puppets. What many people probably think is a mysterious giant man in the intro is possibly the only real person in the story. He's the only realistically drawn human in the game because even the enemies and NPC's have the same cartoony, puppety look that the Ninja Kids have.
The attract mode of the game also talks a bit about the characters but will also give you bits of ninja-related folklore and trivia including some that have nothing to do with the game itself.
