Ninjitsu is used 7 times and Ninjutsu is used 11 times. Is this wiki going to use Ninjitsu or Ninjutsu or does it matter? Turtle Man 14:10, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Honestly until there is an established council of types to decide on these things, it's hard to say. N.Y.N.E.ComlinkSithempire2 20:37, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
'Ninjitsu' is the term most often used in TMNT media, but is considered an archaic and by modern standards, incorrect romanization. Ninjutsu is the actual, correct term. The S 23:30, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I've replaced 'Ninjitsu' with 'Ninjutsu'. Turtle Man 18:07, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

If this site is to follow "canon", and possibly contrary to what "The S" says, then what is most predominantly used in the series should be honored. While I can't speak for the rest of the series', "Ninjitsu" was the term used in the "original" TV series. --Alan 04:12, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Laird fixed "Michaelangelo" because it was spelled wrong, which I believe was a much bigger deal then "Ninjitsu v. Ninjutsu", Wiktionary says ninjitsu is a common misspelling of ninjutsu. So the reason to use "Ninjutsu" is because its spelled correctly. If you disagree, we can use "Ninjitsu" or be like Wikipedia and not care... or if someone want to ask Laird if he spells it as "ninjitsu" or "ninjutsu", that would be great. I was being sarcastic about asking Laird, but someone could...ZTurtleMan (Talk | contribs) 23:14, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

I was not aware of the Michaelangelo spelling, I was just going by what the spellcheck gave me. --Alan 01:51, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Laird changed the spelling of "Michaelangelo", which is the incorrect spelling, to "Michelangelo", which is the correct and what is mainly what used on TMNTPedia. Some of the comic articles use the incorrect spelling because that is what was used in the comic. Just wanted to make that clearer. –ZTurtleMan (Talk | contribs) 16:25, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
