yes, but the fox ate him in the end

"Mr. G is a prototype of Project Ginja Assassin, a bioculinary weapons technology that despite early promise remained--alas!--on the drawing board. Can you imagine a legion of gingerbreadmen, all impervious to pity, guilt or scruples, as the advance guard of an army on the move? Frontline bakeries would have been able to churn him out by the thousand, then set him against the enemy with a hardwired knowledge of every method of death imaginable. He is agile, adaptable, tireless and highly motivated--the perfect Ginja--and he can never be caught."

Jasper Fforde, The Fourth Bear, ch. 36 "Totally over the top at SommeWorld"
