Needing clarification... does the Ninjutsu Hero count as a "Ninja"? Several Tech cards only apply to "Ninjas".

No. Only units that have the Ninja type (either innately or via Fox's Den School's exhaust ability) count as Ninjas for purposes of Jade Fox, Fox's Den Students, Fox's Den School's continuing ability, and Masked Racoon. Note however that Hidden Ninja has a bonus when used on a ninja or on the Ninjitsu hero.

On a related complaint, it's inconsistant wording to refer to "ninja unit" on Fox's Den Students, but just "Ninjas" on Jade Fox, Fox's Den Students, Fox's Den School and Masked Racoon. The difference in wording implies that there could be a difference between "ninja" and "ninja unit" when there is no such difference.

By the same token, in the Demonology spec, Vandy is *not* a Demon Hero until *after* she casts Metamorphosis.

Her card type is "Queen of Demons", not "Demon".

Strictly-speaking, "Queen of Demons" is part of the card name/title, and is only relevant if a card references "Vandy Anandrose, Queen of Demons". It's not a card type.
