Only the truly elite will ever even get the chance to climb Mount Midoriyama. And only true Ninja Warriors can actually press the buzzer on the top in the short amount of time given. Successfully climbing the tower is the final obstacle in Ninja Warrior, and after that, they receive their honor. However, it is very uncommon. Many have tried, few were chosen. Makoto Nagano and a few others were able to beat it. It is truly the test of strength and will.
After the grueling Stage 3, players will already be in low strengths, making it even harder. Also, slipping up or getting tangled is just an absolute tragedy... there may be time to recover, but if you are like a normal human being, you will fail in shame.
