A torch is a stick with combustible material at one end, which is ignited and used as a light source.
Shinobi torches are varied and numerous, with many different mixtures for different occasions. A variety of torch and gunpowder skills were mastered by the shinobi. This is due to the fact that many shinobi had to lead bands of warriors to an enemy's camp under the cover of night. Their torches needed to withstand harsh weather conditions and last long hours.
