Samurai Served The Emperor and Followed The Honour Code Called Bushido
On the other hand, samurai served the emperor during the feudal times in Japan. Because of the high code of honor called Bushido that Samurai blindly followed, they were loyal to their master, i.e. the emperor. Unlike ninjas, they were fighting until the very end and demanded no fee. They belonged either to the middle or high-class warriors and were trained as officers in military tactics. Despite the fact that only 10% of the Japanese population were samurai, their teachings and moral code is living even today.
