If there was any doubt that some of the FFXI devs are Naruto fans (which there probably was little doubt after the Ninja job emote), consider the 3 new all-purpose ninja tools: Inoshishinofuda, Shikanofuda, and Chonofuda. If you look at the tool bags for these tools, you'll notice that they are abbreviated as Ino Shika Cho.

I mentioned this in an old thread when they were first released, and someone said it might be from something else(I cannot quite recall what though).

The only reason I made the connection was because of the jobemote =/ Here's to hoping it wasn't from Narutardo~

Ino Shika Cho comes from hanafuda cards, which is where Naruto took it from.

I can understand that line of reasoning, since the tools have the word "fuda" in them. However, none of the other ninja tools are named after hanafuda cards, are they? Why pick these 3 hanafuda cards in particular? And why attach them to ninja tools? Just a really big coincidence?

Because naruto story is a lot inspired by other (and older) "ninja" (and other) stories.
