Japanese Burger King welcomes the "Black Ninja" to their Asian Whopper menu.

Burger King's new Kuro Ninja, or Black Ninja, burger is giving McDonald's Big Mac a run for its buns. The bizarre Kuro Ninja sandwich is stacked with an ebony bun colored with bamboo charcoal, hamburger patty, a hashbrown, regular fixings, and an extra long strip of bacon.

Made to resemble a black hooded ninja with an over-sized tongue, the burger is a Japanese follow up version to the Big Bacon Whopper introduced early this year.

That's not all, Burger King went as far as to create a cute mascot to accompany the new burger. Stickers of Kuro Ninja are given with a combo meals. Starting October 25, the Black Ninja burger will be offered for a limited time.
