The X-Bridge (エックスブリッジ) was a first stage obstacle that premiered in SASUKE 24, replacing the Curtain Slider. It was very similar to the Cross Bridge used before Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha, but the X-Bridge had six small blades rather than four large ones. As the day progressed, competitors began to clear the obstacle by taking two leaps straight down the middle. As a result, it only eliminated two competitors in its appearence. After one tournament, it was removed in favor of the Rolling Maruta's return.
Ninja Warrior called the X-Bridge the "Bridge of Blades," which was also their fabricated name for the aforementioned Cross Bridge.

KUNOICHI 9 Version
X Bridge (エックスブリッジ) was a new obstacle introduced in KUNOICHI 9 which shares the same name above. However, this obstacle is similar to the Floating Tiles, where competitors have to walk from tile to tile without falling and/or stepping on the red support ropes. However, no one failed this obstacle, which can be blamed on the pads of the obstacle being significantly wider than the ones used for the Floating Tiles, to the point where most competitors were able to walk in a straight line when attempting the obstacle. Due to the unexpected zero knockout rate, this obstacle was removed after KUNOICHI 9 in favour of the introduction of the Shaking Bridge which Fish Bone took its position.
