Shuriken was a robot from Team Katana that was named after the Shuriken (or Throwing Star)- a small, multi-bladed throwing weapon from Japan known for its association with ninjas.
Shuriken was an invertible two-wheeled robot with two horizontal cutting discs with a yin-yang symbol painted onto them. These weapons, however, were not very durable, as they broke off when Shuriken was placed on the floor flipper.
Shuriken faced Red Virus, 6 Million Dollar Mouse, Medusa Oblongata, Brute and Falcon in the first round of the US Championship. In the battle, Shuriken hit the Mouse, but stopped spinning, and was stuck to Falcon. It had broken down as a result, and was placed on the floor flipper by Shunt, where its weapons broke. Brute won the battle on a Judge's decision. Shuriken was too badly damaged to continue competing, and the team drove The Green Mouse for the rest of the tournament.
