Hanate is a Chinese ninja who first appeared in How to be Ninja as one of the teachers. Hanate didn’t appear in any videos until 1,000,000 Subscribers. Hanate’s most recent apparances are in the Skitzo series.


Hanate is one of the four main characters of Skitzo. His stereotype is The Asian Ninja.

In Introductions, Hanate is the fourth and last character introduced. During his introduction, Hanate reveals that his real name is Bob, but he mispronounces it as “Boob” which eventually leads to an argument between the characters. Hanate is the only character to respond to Ryan’s offer to make a series together by saying, “My name ‘Boob’”.

In The Halloween Story, Hanate only had a very minor role where he tells Ryan at the end of the episode that he stayed home and cooked rice on Halloween.

In The PSA, Hanate’s PSA was the only one not seen due to Ryan angrily leaving the room before it could be shown. At the end of the episode, Hanate offers Regina his ShamWOOHOO! after she wet her pants.
