[Comments] (4) A People Kill B People: Last ninja: 'Be able to kill your students'. Wouldn't that result in a strictly decreasing quality of ninja over time?

That's why he's the last ninja.

Hmm, not necessarily. Presumably if the master is unable to kill one of his students, that student will kill him back and become the new teacher, leading to a sustained or rising competency of masters over time.

But that would represent a failure of the master's philosophy. A formula for ninja excellence would be "train your students to kill you".

Unfortunately, individual ninjas tend to be more concerned with self-preservation than advancement of the species.
