Ninja Tuna is the fourth studio album by the British musician and DJ Andrew "Mr. Scruff" Carthy, released on 6 October 2008 simultaneously by Ninja Tune and Ninja Tuna, a special subdivision of Ninja Tune created by Mr. Scruff in order for him to release his music.

The track "Kalimba" was used as one of the sample songs that came with every computer running the Windows 7 operating system.

A compilation of outtakes of the album, entitled Bonus Bait, was released in the following year.

In 2009 it was awarded a silver certification from the Independent Music Companies Association which indicated sales of at least 30,000 copies throughout Europe.[1]
