If the Ninja were pieces of classical music

Jay- An American in Paris, Gershwin This work just screams Jay to me. It's upbeat, crazy, and unpredictable. It's crazy and energetic in the first half, but in the second half, it shows the sweeter and maybe calmer side of Jay. That is, before crescendoing up back into a total freakout again. Its melodies are unforgettable. The taxi horns in the beginning and end add even more to the Jay vibe. This work is definitely not your classical symphony, but it is epic nonetheless, and I can definitely see Jay in this piece.

Lloyd- Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty Ballet The whole ballet is hours long. You don't have to listen to the whole thing. I chose this one for Lloyd because I felt strongly that Lloyd needed a Romantic-era composer like Tchaikovsky. The ballet has a regal, noble feel for it and it says Lloyd to me. This one is a good piece of the ballet to listen to if you only have five minutes to spare. Lloyd is a strong and stable leader with a big heart, and that's what this ballet feels like to me.

Zane- Mozart - Symphony no. 40, in G minor - 1st movement I knew I had to pick something by Mozart for Zane. Mozart just suits him. And if you're a classical musician, you'll know that you have to play Mozart with precision. And that's what Zane is. The movement is centered around a minor key. However, it doesn't sound particularly sad, and I also think that's appropriate for Zane. The melody tends to stay up in the higher end of things, which is just right for Zane. I encourage you to listen to the whole thing. Of course, no piece of music can accurately depict the perfect and precious character that Zane is.

Cole- Gustav Holst - The Planets - Jupiter I went out searching for one that exemplified Kai and I found Cole. The whole movement has a sense of stability. It starts off fast-paced, which isn't really Cole to me, but it makes up for it later. Did I forget to mention the unforgettable melody? It's beautiful. The whole piece is in the lower end of the pitch spectrum which is perfect for the master of earth. Towards the end, it slows down and gives you the sense of stability and responsibility that Cole fosters. It's Cole's perfect piece.

And that's it! Think you know of a piece that better exemplifies one of these ninja? Or know of a work that sounds like one of the ninja I haven't listed here? Comment below!! Good day fangirls and boys, now GOODNIGHT!
