The Revenge of Shinobi, published in Japan as The Super Shinobi, is a video game developed and published by Sega in 1989. It was the first Shinobi game developed for the Mega Drive, and was later released on the coin-operated version of that console, the Mega-Tech.
Alongside Shadow Dancer, the game is a sequel to Shinobi, and features a soundtrack by video game music composer Yuzo Koshiro. The game was included in the compilations: Mega Games 2, Mega Drive 6 Pak, Sega Classics Arcade Collection (for Mega-CD), and Sega Smash Pack (for the PC and Dreamcast).

Taking place three years after the first game, the criminal organization Zeed from the original game has since reformed and have renamed themselves 'Neo Zeed'. They decide to have their revenge on the Oboro Ninja clan and Joe Musashi by killing his master and kidnapping Joe's bride, Naoko (ナオコ). Joe, having reached the clan too late, manages to learn about Neo Zeed's plot by his dying master. Joe decides to travel the world to gain his revenge on Neo Zeed as well as try to save his bride before it's too late.
