Ninjin is a freckled boy with short spiky purple hair (white in the digital colored manga) that covers his eyes, a red hat (orange in the digital colored manga) with a frill at the top and the Usopp Pirates Jolly Roger on the front, and a face that ends in a pointed chin; these three features make his head resemble a carrot. He also wears a black sweater, a reddish-brown sash, light orange pants (yellow in the digital colored manga), and dark brown shoes, with light brown on the bottom.
After two years, he has grown taller and his hair appears to be less spiky than before, and he wears a light-colored hooded jacket with buttons. He also wears black calf-length pants and black laced shoes.
Abilities and Powers
Syrup Village Arc
He first appeared in Syrup Village when the Straw Hat Pirates arrive. The Usopp Pirates later assist Kaya in her escape when Captain Kuro planned to kill her. They did this mainly by running and hiding from Jango, whom Kuro sent to make Kaya leave everything to him in her will. After Kuro's defeat, the Usopp Pirates had a tearful disbandment when Usopp decided to be a real pirate. The children decided to continue Usopp's lies of "pirates are coming".
Jango's Dance Paradise
After Usopp joined Luffy, Ninjin, Tamenegi, and Piiman found Jango in their village, so they chased him and forced him to run away.
Post Enies Lobby Arc
Ninjin, Tamanegi, and Piman were seen again after Enies Lobby was raided, reacting to Usopp's new bounty. Even though it said "Sogeking" and he was wearing a mask, they could recognize him because of his nose.
From the Decks of the World
Ninjin is seen again along with his two friends, hearing about the Straw Hats' return.

Translation and Dub Issues
- In the 4Kids version, his dream of opening a pub was changed to say that he wanted to open a vegetable restaurant, while in the English version of One Piece: Unlimited Adventure was stated he wanted to open a nightclub.
- Ninjin's name literally means "carrot", and the translation is used as his name in the English version. This makes his name the same as the female mink, Carrot.
Anime and Manga Differences
