The land of Ninjago is the location of the Ninjago theme. It was created by The First Spinjitzu Master, using The Four Golden Weapons. However, it had been split in half, the left side being the Island of Darkness, both surrounded by the "Endless Ocean".
Both Ninjago and the Island of Darkness are arranged in a yin-yang position and resemble dragons. Though this is speculation, Ninjago, and the Dark Island, are the only land masses in the world, which from the space view, makes the planet look enormous. The "Endless Ocean" almost tells that the 2 islands are the only land masses on the planet. In The Void, Earth could be seen multiple times, but the land of Ninjago appeared differently, not to mention being obscured by clouds. In the episode, when Zane fell off of Arcturus and began spinning back to Earth, multiple small islands could be seen, but barely. Which, in turn, proves there is land outside of Ninjago. In The Titanium Ninja's opening scene when the nindroids re-entered Earth's atmosphere, the land appeared to be much larger and wider, and shaped differently than in Season Two. Ninjago City is the world's capital city, which appears to have over 3 million people. The city was in many episodes starting in season 1. The city also appears to take a normal city look in the first-second season and a futuristic city look in the third season. However, it turned back to its normal look in the fourth season. In a couple of scenes, you can see few things from other themes, such as LEGO City, as seen at the jail, where you can see the LEGO City Police Badge, with the studs. In Child's Play and The Stone Army, characters were seen wearing orange Space outfits. In The Void, the Ninja were wearing the Spaceman's outfit. It is unknown why nothing in Ninjago is made out of actual LEGO bricks except for the characters.
BackgroundNinjago was first created by the The First Spinjitzu Master using The Four Golden Weapons. In LEGO Ninjago: Official Guide, Sensei Wu describes Ninjago as a planet. In the Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu episode "The Stone Army", Misako reveals to the ninjas that the Spinjitzu master created Ninjago for good purposes, but there had to be evil because it was the natural order. The Overlord, an evil entity, fought the master with the outcome being no side winning or losing. When the Overlord created his indestructible Stone Warriors, the master decided to split Ninjago in two with the Stone Warriors on the side representing evil so he wouldn't risk losing the war. The evil side of Ninjago that was cut off has since been called "The Island of Darkness".
- Ninjago was first imagined to be Japan in the Lego world, but it was then revealed Ninjago is an independent Earth-like planet.
- Ninjago City is the only urban area in the world, which leads to many questions about the population of Ninjago.
- The ninja always yell "Ninja GO!" before performing spinjitzu, while the world/country goes by the same name, but smashed together and pronounced differently (Nin-jaw-go).
- A train once appeared in an episode, but as an old-fashioned steam locomotive, likely from the 1950s, but where it was going remains unknown, leaving speculation that other cities must exist. Ninjago City is home to many subways, and now a monorail.
- Planes are mentioned, but never appear (except for Jay's Storm Fighter, and Kai's Fighter Jet).
- Ninjago was created by the first Spinjitzu master with the four golden weapons, although the golden weapons were forged at the Golden Peaks. It is unknown, and will most likely remain unknown how they existed before the creation of Ninjago.
- Ninjago may only be just over or under one-hundred years old, if Sensei Wu and Garmadon are still alive and well, despite being Ninjago's creator's son. However, the Overlord informed that he had been banished for thousands of years, meaning the lifespan of the First Spinjitzu Master or the brother may be longer than usual.
- Though this is simply speculation, but possibly a reference as well, the people of Ninjago might be told to believe they are alone in the world, while the rest of the world from Emmet from The LEGO Movie's point of view, may exist on the other side of the planet, and President Business may have made it that way.
- Despite having television and cell phones, satellites are not mentioned, nor seen in the episode "The Void".
- In Season Four, it is revealed that Ninjago City sits on the western coastline of Ninjago, and has it's own harbor. In previous seasons, Ninjago City was located nowhere near any bodies of water. It is also evident Borg Tower may have been demolished between the events of the Golden Master's attack, and "The Invitation".
- In the second to last episode to Season Four, Nya informs the ninja and the other elemental masters of Anacondrai-loaded trucks splitting up to what she describes as densely-populated villages around Ninjago City.
- Also in the second to last episode, Nya mentions the Anacondrai have 'Taken over the entire Eastern Seaboard', which in real life is the entire east coast of the United States.
- In the final episode of Season Four, when Jay is speaking to rally up the people of Ninjago to fight back against the Anacondrai, he states that their cities and villages are falling, which also implies there are other cities as well.
- Also in the final episode of Season Four, there are a few different views of a map of Ninjago in the rebuilt Destiny's Bounty, which once again takes the shape of the land back in Season Two, although it differed in Season Three. Still, the map changed view and only showed the northern parts of the land, not enough to make anything out.
