Devil Steps

A woman trying to conquer the Devil Steps.

Devil Steps was an obstacle in SASUKE 19 through SASUKE 24. They are the third obstacle of the 3rd Stage.

Everyone who has faced Devil Steps has passed it (excluding American Ninja Warrior) except for one challenger in SASUKE 21.


Devil Steps is an upside-down staircase that competitors must traverse in order to move on to the next challenge. The first section is anywhere from 7 steps (five in American Ninja Warrior)(since their upside down, they're basically "grips" now.) A slightly longer step gives way to the second portion of steps (6 [3 in ANW]). It finally starts to go down, but this actually makes it harder on the wrists... there is 7 steps (9 in ANW) downward onto the platform for the next obstacle.
