In most of their videos Danny will end up insulting Brian which angers him and causes him to kill Danny at the end.
Ninja Brian's character has also has been shown to have the ability to destroy things with his mind seen in "Let's Get This Terrible Party Started" (which Jon, Barry and Ross happened to appear in, and was directed by Arin). In the video "Best Friends Forever" it is shown that Brian has a bad habit of killing every friend Danny makes and even anyone who tries to be his friends as well when Danny tried to have him make friends with another ninja named Ninja Jim.
Brian has also achieved many unlikely feats. He killed the Slenderman in "Let's Get This Terrible Party Started"; recovered the 'Sacred Chalice' with Danny in "The Sacred Chalice (Parts 1-4)"; killed most of the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom in "Best Friends Forever" and blew up the sun with a laser fired from his eyes in "NSP Theme Song".
