    Kabuki was actually the reason for ninjas’ stereotypically black clothing, which was the costume of stagehands. The audience got used to not noticing black-clad characters, so when an actor pretending to be a ninja dressed in black “killed” another character, it was to the audience from out of nowhere, highlighting the image of ninjas’ invisibility. And black actually stands out at night anyway. Navy is the most invisible colour.
