He is known worldwide for his great assassination skills, having successfully dealt with targets from all Five Great Shinobi Countries, as a result he earned the moniker of the Silent Assassin ( 無声刺客, Musei Shikaku). He is also known for his mastery of the Body Flicker Technique, a jutsu originally made famous by fellow clansmen Shisui Uchiha. Ryoji earned the moniker of Konoha's Black Fang (木ノ葉隠れ黒い牙, Konoha no Kuroi Kiba) due to always leaving a black blur behind whenever using the Body Flicker Technique. He is greatly feared and admired by friends and foes alike for his incredible and unmatched speed. Ryoji Saeba is the alternate universe version of Shadow Rage’s main character Ryoji Sogetsu.

He wears a dark blue short sleeved shirt and a long white jacket with a raised collar and is buttoned up in the middle. He also wears long black pants and dark coloured boots. At times he is also seen wearing the standard Konoha shinobi outfit along with iron plated gloves which he received from his adoptive father and a black forehead protector.

Still, his most consistent piece of clothing is his cross necklace, and a metal bracelet and similar chain attached to his pants.
