Once Bitten, Twice Shy is the eighth episode in the first season of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
It is about Jay getting bitten by a skeleton of a Fangpyre snake, possibly Fangdam, and then he goes on a date with Nya. They found out that Nya is the mysterious Samurai X as the Serpentine and Pythor P. Chumsworth steal one of the four Fangblade weapons and got away.

- The name of the episode is a reference to the phrase "once bitten, twice shy," referring to how people tend to become more reluctant to pursue a relationship after the failure of a previous one.
- In the context of the episode, the title is more of a double pun; Jay is infected with Fangpyre venom after pricking his finger on a Fangpyre's fangs, and he tries to impress Nya because he fears that she won't appreciate his natural personality.
- This episode marks the beginning of Jay and Nya's relationship. It also marks the last time Nya uses her "Samurai X" identity - although she will still use her technology, it will be under her own name.
- As of this episode, the entire known Walker family has been infected with Fangpyre venom at some point - previously, Jay's parents were bitten by Fangpyre in "Snakebit."
- Jay's Fangpyre infection appears to progress slightly differently from his parents'; his hand begins showing a green tint and scale textures before he begins developing fangs or a hissing voice. This may be due to his infection starting with a pricked finger, as it is never shown or mentioned where Ed and Edna were bitten in "Snakebit."
- The Fangpyre skeleton appears to belong to a General, possibly Fangtom's predecessor.
- The four weapons Lord Garmadon wields in his battle against Sensei Wu include a Nin-Jô and normal-colored versions of the Golden Star Hammer, the Staff of Light, and the Double-Bladed Dagger.
