  • Some think I'm fashionable and wear me.
  • Some say I'm slow, yet I'm faster than a showoff.
  • When I'm down, my friends tell me that I will eventually get back on my feet, but that's just cruel.
  • Sometimes I dress up like those sneaky Japanese.
  • I might be robust and durable, but I tend to not stick my neck out unless I really have to.

Who am I?

You are a:

Turtle/ Tortoise (I know they are different but bear with me)

Some think I'm fashionable and wear me

Turtleneck sweaters and turtleshell spectacle rims

Some say I'm slow yet I'm faster than a showoff

The turtle and the hare (technically tortoise)

When I'm down, my friends tell me that I will eventually get back on my feet, but that's just cruel

A tortoise upended onto its shell has a lot of difficulty getting back onto its feet, and leaving one in that position is rather cruel

Sometimes I dress up like those sneaky Japanese

Ninjas as in TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

I might be robust and durable, but I tend to not stick my neck out unless I really have to

self-explanatory

  • $\begingroup$ Too easy was it? Just one hint to go! Maybe it will be hard to find if you are young. Not sure. $\endgroup$ – stack reader Nov 22 '16 at 2:17
  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for clue #4 $\endgroup$ – tmpearce Nov 22 '16 at 2:22
