S. Ward Smith is the metal shop teacher at Norrisville High and the swordsmith that crafts the Ninja's swords. His apprentice is Brent.


S. Ward Smith hunches over, and he has dark brown hair. He is blind, so he wears sunglasses, and he has a few golden teeth. He wears a gray tank top, an apron, teal pants, brown boots, and brown gloves. His lower right arm is bandaged.


Mr. Smith's pretty much portrayed as one of those elderly masters seen in classic martial arts films. Usually, he takes no nonsense whatsoever and never seems to crack under pressure. He feels like he's too old to be a metal shop teacher, but he still dedicates his life to crafting swords for future Norrisville Ninjas.


Ninja Theme Song

Season 1

Season 2


  • Mr. Smith's name, as pointed out by Randy, is an obvious pun on "sword smith"
  • He is blind, and only could tell Randy was the Ninja because he smelled like Smoke-Bombs (they do stink like farts, after all).
    • He could be the third person to know about Randy's secret as the Ninja, the first one being the Creep and the second one Howard Weinerman.
  • He was mentioned in "Monster Drill", Principal Slimovitz giving his metal shop class credit for building the practice monster (actually a Robo-Mantis), though Randy points out that his class couldn't even build a birdhouse.
  • He is shown in the opening theme speaking to Mr. Bannister.
  • It is unknown if he worked with the previous Ninjas.
  • He has an odd habit of calling Randy bizarre epithets such as "bloofus."
