kuroko
n.
Stagehand; puppeteer. Kuroko, meaning "black child," are stagehands in Japanese theater productions (particularly Kabuki and Bunraku puppet shows). Kuroko wear a black uniform that covers their entire body and face (the hood looks something like a bag with a net hole for the eyes), and are "officially" invisible; they manipulate puppets or objects on stage, and perform set and costume changes while the curtain is still up, but for the purpose of the play they are assumed to be invisible to the audience. They appear occasionally in anime in ninja-like roles, and in fact their garb may have been what the modern image of the ninja outfit came from.
