Ninjago (subtitled "Masters of Spinjitzu") is a current theme introduced in January 2011 and will continue on into 2014 as announced on the LEGO Message Boards. It was going to be replaced by Legends of Chima originally, but after the announcement of its continuation the two themes will both exist simultaneously.[1][2]

The theme takes very little influence from the previous Ninja theme, instead introducing a variety of elements such as a more modern setting, enemies such as Lord Garmadon, Skulkin, the Serpentine, Stone Army, the Overlord, and Nindroids and a battle game known as "Spinjitzu", with spinner sets for in 2011 and 2012, which were discontinued in 2013.

LEGO® Ninjago The Beginning to 2014

Long before time had a name, the world of Ninjago was created by the First Spinjitzu Master, by using the four Weapons of Spinjitzu: The Scythe of Quakes, The Nunchucks of Lightning, the Shurikens of Ice, and the Sword of Fire. The weapons were so powerful, that no mortal could handle all of their power at one time. When the Spinjitzu Master passed away, his two sons, Sensei Wu and Oldest/Sensei Garmadon swore to protect them, but Garmadon was consumed by darkness, and wanted to possess them. A battle between the two brothers broke out, and the oldest was struck down and banished to the Underworld. Peace returned to Ninjago, and the younger brother hid the weapons, but knowing his older brother's relentless ambition for power, he placed a guardian to protect them and for fear of his own demise, a map for an honest man to hide. As Garmadon cannot leave the Underworld, he struck a deal with Samukai and his Skeleton Army. In preparation, Sensei Wu gathered four young ninja, Kai, Jay, Cole, and Zane, to learn the ways of Spinjitzu, and stop Lord Garmadon.[source?] After months of training, the four ninja began their quest to find the Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu to stop Garmadon's evil plans, and travelled to the Caves of Despair to retrieve the Scythe of Quakes. After narrowly escaping the Earth Dragon protecting the weapon, the Ninja found the Nunchucks of Lightning and the Shurikens of Ice next, while Samukai's skeletal legions followed them.[source?] Kai was lured into a trap at the Fire Temple by Lord Garmadon, and the skeletons stole the three weapons, but Sensei Wu detained his brother's plan to unite the weapons at the temple by travelling to the Underworld with the last weapon, the Sword of Fire.[source?] After allying themselves with the four dragons, they journeyed to the Underworld to help Sensei and stop Garmadon once and for all using the dragons' ability to travel between the mortal world and the Unserworld. Using the Tornado of Creation, they destroyed the skeletons (locking them in a ferris wheel that they created out of Garmadon's Dark Fortress' entrance using the Tornado of Creation) and made their way to the throne room of Garmadon's Dark Fortress, where a battle between Wu and Samukai broke out for the possession of the four weapons. Sensei was defeated, and Samukai, having possession of all four weapons, betrayed Garmadon and demanded he obey him, but Samukai is destroyed by all the weapon's power, as Garmadon planned, and creates a portal through space and time that he travels through to reach an unknown location seen in the next season where Sensei Wu finds him with four arms using 'Travellers' Tea'. After returning to the surface world, Sensei Wu knew Garmadon will one day return, and that the battle for Ninjago had only begun.

Season 1 (2012)

The four ninja have retired from training and enjoy peace in the world of Ninjago; but peace does not last for long. When Nya brings news of a new threat in the land, the son of the dark overlord Lord Garmadon, Lloyd Garmadon, unleashes the Serpentine tribes to be wreak maximum carnage in Ninjago under his control. Kai, Cole, Zane and Jay unlock their true potential, learn the secrets of their Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu and train to face the five Serpentine tribes and stop them from unleashing The Great Devourer, a monstrous serpent-like reptile that will consume the entire land into darkness, along with the threat of Lord Garmadon's return looming in the horizon. It is discovered that Garmadon possesses a mysterious connection with the Serpentine as he was turned evil by the Great Devourer.

Season 2 (2012-2013)

Immediately after the demise of the Devourer and the fall of Pythor, the Ninja find themselves facing their most toughest challenge yet: training Lloyd. But without the Bounty, they have no place to properly train him. The threat of the Serpentine still exists, along with Lord Garmadon, who still possesses the ninja's weapons. He uses the weapons to transform the destroyed Destiny's Bounty into the Black Bounty, a home for the Serpentine. The snakes have abandoned Skales to follow Lord Garmadon. After arriving at the Golden Peaks, Lord Garmadon combines the four Spinjitzu weapons into one ultimate Mega-Weapon. His goal is to destroy the ninja before they could finish training Lloyd, leaving the Green Ninja's prophecy unfulfilled, allowing him to recreate Ninjago in his own image.

When the Mega-Weapon is destroyed Lord Garmadon will plot to find the Island of Darkness, mentioned in Captain Soto's log. He and his generals set off on an expedition to find it. Skales betrays Lord Garmadon, and leaves him stranded in the middle of the ocean, while he returns to Ouroboros as the new Snake King. When a museum exhibit goes crazy, the ninja arrive to stop it. Apparently, the Great Devourer's venom can bring stone warriors to life. While at the museum, they run into Lloyd's mother, Misako, who tells the ninja the rest of the story on Ninjago's beginning.

Long ago, an evil spirit known as the Overlord plagued Ninjago with darkness, but was continually defeated by The First Spinjitzu Master. One day, the Overlord created his army of indestructible stone warriors, the Stone Army. The Spinjitzu Master knew he would lose, so he divided Ninjago in half, leaving the stone army and the Overlord on one side, and the peace and light on the other. The Overlord and his army were never seen again, until the Serpentine (lead by Skales) decided to burrow under Ninjago City in order to get revenge one the surface dwellers. Under the city, they found a tomb filled with Stone Warriors. The Stone Warriors are brought to life by the Devourer's venom, and they trap the Serpentine in the tomb, before invading Ninjago city.

The city's residents are forced to flee with the ninja to a hiding spot near the ocean. The heroes board the bounty and head for the Island of Darkness, in order to restore their elemental powers and defeat the Stone Army once and for all. Lord Garmadon, however, finds the Island of Darkness and the Overlord. The Overlord makes Garmadon the king of his army, and plots to help Garmadon recreate the world in his image. They then construct their ultimate weapon. The ninja arrive and, upon regaining their elemental powers through swords they find in the Temple of Light, attempt to thwart Garmadon and the Overlord, first by attempting to stop the final battle altogether and later by actually facing Garmadon. However, the Overlord takes over Garmadon's body, causes Lloyd to break his leg, and proceeds to use Dark Matter to turn all of Ninjago City's inhabitants evil while leaving the heroes stranded on the Island of Darkness. The ninja manage to leave the island, though, and Lloyd faces the Overlord in his fortress in Ninjago City, unleashing the power of the golden dragon and defeating the Overlord once and for all. Through this, Garmadon is also turned good again, and although the ninja's work is done, they still vow that they will always be ninja, ready to fight evil when they are needed.

Season 3 (2013-2014)

It’s been a long time since the Overlord was defeated by Lloyd the Golden Ninja. While Lloyd tours Ninjago celebrating his victory, the original four ninja -- Kai, Cole, Jay, and Zane -- have become teachers in Sensei Wu’s Youth Academy. Besides being bored in class all day, Kai and the rest of the ninjas dream of the days when they fought the forces of evil, but in the updated and technologically advanced world of Ninjago, there is no need for ninja any longer.

But that changes soon enough … trouble brews in New Ninjago City, famed inventor Cyrus Borg starts acting strange, and our four heroes get new weapons, new gear, and a new evil to fight!

With Nya, Kai’s sister, by their side, the ninja join forces once again to protect the people of Ninjago! Lloyd is back stronger than ever, and the evil Lord Garmadon is now the peaceful Sensei Garmadon! Sensei Wu is now the evil Tech Wu! Join the adventure to see new friends and favorite heroes as the world of Ninjago is once again caught in a battle between good and evil!

The fighting style practiced by the characters of Ninjago is called Spinjitzu. This is also the name of the game associated with the theme. The fighters spin around and draw on their elemental strengths to become tornadoes of energy and steel. Several sets in the game include special spinner parts, customized for different characters. Players select their characters, the weapons the character will hold, and a small deck of ability cards to influence the duel. The characters are placed into the spinners and spun at each other like tops, with the goal being to knock the opponent's minifigure down.

The game was expanded in 2012 to include different suits for the ninjas, crowns for the spinners, and the inclusion of booster packs which consist of a minifigure, spinner accessories, and three weapons.

They have not released any Spinners since 2012.


The Four Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu are the secrets to victory over Lord Garmadon and his army of skeletons. The ninjas and skeletons are always on the search for these weapons. These weapons are the Nunchucks of Lightning, the Scythe of Quakes, the Shuriken of Ice, and the Dragon Sword of Fire. They can not contact each other or else an explosion will happen.[source?]

The Four Elemental Weapons of Spinjitzu were first used by The First Spinjitzu Master. With the weapons it gave Lloyd, the Ultimate Spinjitzu Master his full potential so he could summon the power of the Golden Dragon.[source?]

Ninja Variants

Normal Ninja



Normal ninjas are the first variation.

DX Ninja


Cole DX

DX is the second type of suit the ninja wear. These ninja wear dragon clothing. The dragons on their suits are all breathing different kinds of elements (Cole, dragon breathing rock; Zane, dragon breathing ice; Jay, dragon breathing lightning; Kai, dragon breathing fire). The ninjas in their DX attire also have gold and red spinners. Ninjas become DX rank once they tame their respective dragon.[source?] Strangely, though all DX ninjas are sold in a Spinner Battle Pack (except for Jay), no dragon was included.They are infused with Dragon Power

Kendo Ninja


Kendo Jay

Kendo Ninjas are the third variation of the ninja. Kendo uniforms are the original ninja robes with new helmet pieces with chest armour. In Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, the ninja use the Kendo armour for training[source?], however in the sets, they are often seen in combat with the Serpentine.

ZX Ninja

Lego Ninjago - Copy

Lloyd ZX

ZX is another type of suit worn by the ninja. These ninjas have shoulder pads that also include a round piece (representing a scabbard) to put Katanas in. They also include a different ninja mask that has a gold or silver visor. Lloyd Garmadon has a ZX variation to represent the Green Ninja.

NRG Ninja



NRG is another suit the ninja wear as minifigures. This variant depicts the ninja when they unlock their true potential. They appeared in summer 2012 spinners. In NRG form, ninja are made of pure energy of their element.[source?] The emblems depict the symbol in the top left corner with the element coming from it in a vertical line, a horizontal line and a diagonal line. They look similar to the DX form. The first episode NRG appeared in was "Tick Tock" and the first ninja to use it was Zane. In the episode "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" Jay unlocked his full potential. In the episode "The Royal Blacksmiths" Cole unlocked his full potential. And in the episode "The Green Ninja" Kai unlocked his full potential. Lloyd Garmadon full's potential was The Golden Ninja, although this was revealed over a whole season later.



Zane in his Kimono

These Robes was first introduced with Lloyd in LEGO Ninjago: Character Encyclopedia. It was known in the book as another ZX robe but when they get their new suits in the episode Island of Darkness they get them in the Temple of Light when Kai, Zane, Jay, Cole get their elemental powers back and Lloyd gets the power of the golden dragon fighting style, only practised by The First Spinjitzu Master.


Kai 2014

Kai in his Techno variant

The Techno variants were introduced in the Rebooted series and the Sets 70720 - 70728. It is a new robe for the five ninja, for more style and strength. In the sets, they include a new weapon known as the Techno Blades. Those will be more updated to hack into the Overlord's systems. In Ninjago REBOOTED, the Techno Robes and Blades were made by Cyrus Borg.

Lloyd's Alternatives

Lloyd is a special case, as he has five robes, not seven, and they are not necessarily the same as the others. He first comes in his "Lloyd Garmadon" alternative, which features a black hood, Lloyd's head, a shirt with a ribcage emblem and a green five, and short black legs. He then comes in a ZX alternative, a Kimono alternative, the Ultimate Spinjitzu Master alternative, and finally, his Techno Robe variant.


Each character is normally aligned to a particular element. However, this may not be true with the 2014 Nindroids, since they are all drones and as of now have no elemental powers.
