Of all the competitors to attempt to claim victory, only 24 have been admitted to the Final Stage, and only six of them have gotten there more than once Akira Omori in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd competitions, Shingo Yamamoto in the 3rd and 7th, Makoto Nagano in the 11th, 12th, 13th, his victory in the 17th competition and in the 23rd competition, Yuuji Urushihara in the 22nd and his victories in the 24th competition and 27th, Ryo Matachi in the 27th competition and 30th, Yusuke Morimoto's victory in the 31st competition and in the 35th competition.
Currently there are only four victors: Kazuhiko Akiyama defeated Sasuke in the 4th competition, Makoto Nagano in the 17th, Yuuji Urushihara in the 24th and in the 27th, and Yusuke Morimoto in the 31st.
The contestant must start climbing from a seated position. The second version of the Final Stage was unveiled in the 7th competition, when Shingo Yamamoto became the first to attempt it.
The height of the tower was increased to It consists of a After 15 seconds, the walls of the Spider Climb spread apart.
This ensnared Yordan Yovtchev during the 8th competition, when he failed to complete the Spider Climb before it began spreading, and fell off the tower.
The third version of the Final Stage was revealed in the 22nd competition, when Yuuji Urushihara was the first to try it.
Competitors are not dropped due to the Heavenly Ladder being in the way. The fourth version of the Final Stage was revealed in the 27th competition, when Ryo Matachi was the first to attempt it.
The time limit stayed at 40 seconds. Unlike the first version of the Final Stage, competitors started at a standing position instead of a seated position.
Its design was similar to that of the fourth version of the Final Stage consisting of a Rope Climb. The time limit would have likely been 35 seconds, as Urushihara may have cleared this particular version with one second left.
It was used for only one tournament. For the sixth version, with the removal of the previous version of the Final Stage, it was not unusual to see a change similar to that of the 18—24 version from the Metal Ladder to the Heavenly Ladder.
The previous Final Stage consisting of a Rope Climb was thrown out all together and the return of the 7—17 Final Stage took its place.
The Spider Walls seem to take up less space this time, and the Rope Climb appears to take up more. The time limit is likely to stay the same at 30 seconds, though a second Final Stage is not out of the question.
In the 24th tournament a Nissan Fuga was also a prize if anyone could complete the Final Stage. Typically, only one or two people make it to the Final Stage, if any make it at all.
However, both the 3rd and 24th competitions saw a record five competitors attempt the Final Stage. After the 4th competition, though, the Final Stage was only achieved on average every other tournament.
Ninja Warrior just calls them "Rope Climb", without the length of the ropes. These winners are not including the "kanzenseiha" Total Victory winners from the original Japanese version, or under any other varied rules including Team Ninja Warrior in Denmark and the United States.
Each episode now lasts thirty minutes and it also includes some minor changes in the on-screen graphics. Throughout the episode, there's the "Ninja Killer" for the obstacle that took out the most competitors and "Warrior Wipeout" honors the best wipeout segments.
The Japanese play-by-play commentary and interviews with the competitors have English subtitles , while the competitor profiles, replays , and introductions were dubbed by voice actor Dave Wittenberg.
The show became the highest rated program on the network since its debut. Aside from a few sporadic occurrences, reruns of Ninja Warrior stopped airing regularly sometime in December in wake of G4 slated to be rebranded as the Esquire Network on September 23, The last four episodes to air on G4 appeared as a two-hour block on April 10, It is unknown if Ninja Warrior would return to the network's schedule or if some other channel would acquire the series.
Commercials on G4 show American Ninja Warrior to air on G4 in July, marking it the last program being advertised on the network as a G4 program, and not an Esquire channel presentation.
They also stated that "Additional newer tournaments of the series, never seen in the U. Auditions on G4's website ended on August 18, Open tryouts were held in Los Angeles on August 29 and 30, , and were taped for the show, with ten finalists competing on the 23rd tournament of the original Ninja Warrior course in Japan in September The eight-episode series began airing on December 12, The qualifying round consists of over competitors, running an obstacle course strongly influenced by Sasuke 's First Stage.
The preliminaries used a leader board, and the 30 fastest times moved on to the semi-finals, which included the preliminary course plus three obstacles, the Tarzan Jump, the Jumping Bars, and a Net Climb.
American Ninja Warrior aired only the American finalists during the Sasuke obstacle course. The Japanese competitors were later aired on April 10, A second season was cast on G4's website as of April 10, and aired in hour long specials starting December 8, The top 10 contestants would participate in Sasuke Three episodes were run for the first two weeks.
The first three episodes covered the opening round of the competition; the fourth covered the semifinals.
This was followed by four days of a "boot camp" where the fifteen winners of the semifinals were divided into three five-man teams and put through several different Pressure Challenges, with the losing team having to complete a punishment while the other two teams got extra training time on models of some of the Sasuke obstacles The Warped Wall, Double Salmon Ladder, Balance Tank, and Circle Slider.
The teams would then run through a grouping of the obstacles with some sort of hindrance usually carrying something heavy between obstacles.
The teams with the worst time would be forced to send two members to an elimination challenge, with the losing person forced to leave. After boot camp, the ten final winners traveled to the Sasuke course to compete.
Once again, only the American competitors were aired during the special, with the rest of the Sasuke competition to air later.
The most successful of the American competitors in the past, Levi Meeuwenberg, withdrew from the competition due to a fractured wrist, giving his spot to Adam LaPlante.
Five members failed in the First Stage: Patrick Cusic and former American Gladiators champion and gladiator Evan "Rocket" Dollard both fell from the new Rolling Escargot obstacle, LaPlante fell on the Halfpipe Attack and Adam Truesdell fell from the Giant Swing, a new variation of the Jump Hang, the only one out of all competitors to do so in the whole tournament.
In addition, veteran Shane Daniels once again timed out on the Cargo Net. In the Second Stage, four of the remaining five cleared, while Travis Furlanic fell on the Balance Tank, an obstacle he struggled on during boot camp.
Brent Steffensen made it to the Ultimate Cliffhanger before falling into the water. David Campbell , despite having the fastest times of all the competitors to compete finishing the Second Stage with over 24 seconds left failed at the Ultimate Cliffhanger as well.
Brian Orosco fell at the very first obstacle, the Roulette Cylinder, which he had passed easily in the previous competition.
While many top competitors were absent including Levi Meeuwenberg, Rich King and Luci Romberg, a talented crop of new competitors took their place including Denver Broncos wide receiver Matt Willis, who finished the course but did not qualify for boot camp.
In addition, professional freerunner and Survivor: China competitor Michael "Frosti" Zernow ranked in the top fifteen and was invited to boot camp, but injured himself and was replaced with fellow Jump City: Seattle competitor Jake Smith.
The level of competition in boot camp was noticeably higher in the third season, as competitors were only given one attempt at each obstacle in challenges, leading to a large increase in time penalties.
Of the ten who advanced to Sasuke , nine easily cleared the First Stage. The only exception was Dreschel, who injured his knee landing on the Halfpipe Attack, and despite a valiant attempt at the Warped Wall, was unable to put any weight on his leg and stated on his Facebook that he will not be available for Sasuke The remaining four competitors made it to the Third Stage only to be outdone by the Ultimate Cliffhanger.
Ryan Stratis failed to make the fourth ledge while James McGrath and fan favorite Paul Kasemir failed the transition to the fifth ledge.
The last competitor, David Campbell almost made it through the entire obstacle but on the final ledge his grip gave out.
The final episode of the third season aired on NBC on August 29, as a two-hour special in prime-time.
Midoriyama course was recreated just off the Las Vegas Strip for the national finals. The regional qualifiers would narrow its selections down to 30 contestants who finished its qualifying course in the fastest time as well as the contestants who finished the furthest the fastest.
Qualifying obstacles would include common Stage 1 obstacles such as the Quintuple Steps and the Warped Wall, but its contents would change from city to city.
The 30 contestants were then cut in half in the regional finals where the course would extend to include common Stage 2 and Stage 3 obstacles such as the Salmon Ladder, Cliffhanger and Body Prop.
The 90 contestants who qualified including wild cards earned tickets to Las Vegas to challenge Mt. The show returned for its fifth season on July 1, in the same format.
This season, if a contestant were to finish the course, that player would be guaranteed a spot in the next round. The show returned once again for its sixth season on May 25, on both NBC and Esquire Network with the same rules as in previous seasons.

The first meeting took place at the Mt. Midoriyama reconstruction in Las Vegas and was first broadcast in America on January 13, on NBC, with a second meeting already scheduled for the original Mt.
Midoriyama in Aoba-ku in Stage 1 was worth one point, Stage 2 worth two points and Stage 3 worth three, with the tiebreaker being the Final Stage tower.
Despite the Japanese boasting superior experience and pedigrees no Team USA member had completed Stage 3, either in Yokohama or Las Vegas , the Americans pulled off a stunning 6—0 win that included only one Japanese one-on-one race win Matachi against Arnold on Stage 3.
The spin-off consists of 24 teams of three members featuring past and current ANW contestants from the first seven seasons and is unique for being a head-to-head event where two teams or competitors run the course at the same time.
One edition of the format is College Madness featuring college teams in a five-week competition, with the second season debuting on November 22, with Iseman and Gbaja-Biamila as hosts and ANW season six contestant Kacy Catanzaro as the sideline reporter.

Worum geht es in der Show Ninja Warrior Germany ? Von welcher Show ist Ninja Warrior Germany inspiriert? In the first three seasons, there was a semi-finals course in between the city finals and the National Finals courses, where the top 15 competitors from the city finals course were narrowed down to 10 and then sent to Japan to compete on Sasuke.
Obstacles are designed and produced in the five months prior to an episode taping. In the fourth season, each location contained one or two obstacles that differed between other locations.
Since the fifth season, three to five obstacles have differed. In the eighth season, 18 obstacles were debuted.
Beginning with the ninth season, fans of the show have been given the opportunity to design their own obstacles through the ANW Obstacle Design Challenge.
Seven fan-submitted obstacles have been featured on the series thus far. The course is about the same size as four football fields  and contains 23 obstacles.
Stage 1 consists of eight obstacles, which test the competitors' agility and speed. The first stage is timed, and only the competitors who successfully complete it within advance to Stage 2.
Stage 2 contains six obstacles that test competitors' strength and speed. Competitors must complete the course within a time limit in order to advance to Stage 3.

Like Stages 1 and 2, only the competitors who successfully complete Stage 3 move on to compete on Stage 4. Starting in Season 10, Stage 3 has a clock that counts up to determine any tiebreaking times should no contestant advance from Stage 3, since the format guarantees prize money to the contestant that advances the furthest on the course, and the tiebreaker is based on how fast the contestants reached the previous obstacle prior to failing.
Stage 4 contains the final obstacle of the National Finals courses—a rope climb. Competitors must complete this rope climb in or less in order to be crowned as "American Ninja Warrior.
Aside from the first season, if a competitor completes all four stages of the National Finals, they receive a cash prize. From the second through seventh seasons, the fastest competitor would receive the full prize money, regardless of whether other competitors completed Stage 4 as well.
Beginning with the eighth season, if multiple competitors completed Stage 4, the competitors split the prize money. The player who advances the furthest on the course in the fastest time is declared the "Last Ninja Standing," and wins the prize.
If one competitor finishes Stage 4, he wins the entirety of the augmented prize. If multiple competitors completed Stage 4, the prize money is split among competitors that finished Stage 4, with the fastest competitor still declared the overall champion.
