Appearances
Your metal is loud and heavy. Useful to slow one down, useless in the art of stealth. All tools for a Samurai, but nothing for a ninja?
―Sensei Wu

Sensei Wu is a Ninjago minifigure released in January of 2011. He is the Ninja's sensei.

Description

Njo002
Wu's first variation is of a white kimono with a black belt. Much of his torso is covered by a long, white beard and mustache which also covers his wrinkled face, but an orange emblem which also appears on his back can still be seen on his upper left, in addition to various creases. He wears a tan, straw hat.


Sensie
In his second variation, Sensei once again wears a tan, straw hat and has an elderly face covered with a white beard. He wears a black torso with golden, Japanese characters running down the right side. He has a grey tie that extends down from his neck and around his chest to end at a tie at his hips. His legs are black, arms white, and hands yellow.

As a microfigure, Wu is a smaller version of his first variation. He does not have accessories resembling his hat or beard. The beard is rather printed on his face and resembles his normal head without the beard piece with a much smaller, but still bushy, mustache and a tiny beard on his chin. His kimono design is mostly the same, but simplified.


SenseiWu2012
The 2012 variation wears a different white kimono, the same hat, except in Epic Dragon Battle and Temple of Light, where it was gold, the same face, and the same beard. The kimono now features a grey belt. The kimono is split between two grey sashes running up it with minute dragons on the left and red slashes on the right.


Evilwu
The variant released in December 2013 was of Wu after he was captured and turned him evil. He now has a black beard and a silver hat. His white kimono has been replaced with a mostly black outfit (only the torso is white). His face and torso are printed to show cyborg parts implanted by Pythor.


In LEGO Battles: Ninjago

In LEGO Battles: Ninjago, Wu is a playable unit and appears with three variations.

His normal form resembles his first variation. He carries his staff and is hunched over. He attacks by doing spinjitzu and does not have any magical abilities.

Sensei Wu stage 2

I Form

The I form also resembles his first variation, but he is now armed with the Sword of Fire, standing upright, and his legs and hands are more grey in colour. He attack with the Sword of Fire.

The II form is now based off of his black kimono. He once again carries his staff, but he is not hunched over. He attacks with his staff and is able to use "Spinjitzu Helping Hand" and "Army Heal."

Wu also appears in videos.

In the video "Darkness Returns," Wu is seen underwater drinking tea.

In "Grasshopper," Sensei Wu was drinking tea while Kai trained. The first time, Wu finished his tea before Kai completed the training. However, the second time, Kai threw his sword at Wu's tea while training. While Wu searched for it, Kai finished the training and gave Sensei Wu his tea. They bowed at each other afterward.

In "Shadow Play," Shadow Sensei Wu knocks the Sword of Fire out of Garmadon's hands. Wu and Garmadon have a "fight" over it, and Wu wins, obtaining the Sword.

In "The Confrontation," Wu fights Samukai and Garmadon for the Golden Weapons. He loses, although the Ninja manage to take the Golden Weapons after Garmadon enters the Dark Continent.

In "Within Grasp," Wu has the same fight with Samukai, although Garmadon shoots an energy ball at him. He loses, allowing Garmadon the enter to portal to the Dark Continent.

Background

The Beginning

Long before time had a name...
―Sensei Wu narrating the story of the First Spinjitzu Master
As a young boy Wu lived at a monastery with his father and his brother, Garmadon, who was also his best friend. During one of their duels, Garmadon disarmed Wu's katana and accidentally flung it over the monastery walls.

Since their father would be upset about it, Garmadon asked for Wu to go and retrieve the sword. However, Wu refused to get back the sword. Garmadon told Wu, "Never put off for tomorrow, what could be done today," before hopping the wall to get back his brother's sword for him. However, Garmadon to got bitten by The Great Devourer and became infected with its evil. However, it would take years for the evil to consume his body. During those years, Garmadon and Wu banished enemies into the underworld that tried to steal the Golden Weapons.

Years later after their father passed away, Garmadon turned into the evil Lord Garmadon and planned to steal his father's Golden Weapons. Wu and found out and battled him. Garmadon won. However, Wu's symbols on his black kimono banished Garmadon into the underworld. After defeating his brother, Sensei Wu hid each of the weapons and had a dragon of the corresponding element guard each one.

He then created a map and gave it to a blacksmith who he was friends with to safe guard for him in case he died before the weapons required collecting.

The Ninja

Failed!
―Sensei Wu to Kai

Even though Wu had banished Garmadon, he had a vision from the Smoke Spirit warning him of enemies to come. Because of this, Sensei Wu found three students to become Ninjas: Cole, Jay, and Zane.

Shortly after the blacksmith passed away, Wu reappeared at his shop, called Four Weapons now run by his children, Kai and Nya and expressed disdain for the Samurai weapons that they are not suited for ninja. He then disappears after Kai tells him to buy something or petal his insults someplace else. At this time, the Skulkin Army from the underworld attacked the shop. While Kai was fighting them, Samukai, the general of the Skulkin, threatened to kill Kai with his daggers. As soon as this happened, Sensei Wu came and use his golden Spinjitzu on Samukai. During the battle, Kruncha and Nuckal stole the map, and kidnapped Nya.

To get Nya back, Kai planned to become a Ninja. He arrived at Sensei Wu monastery, where Sensei Wu told him that he must complete his training course before he finishes his tea. After many tries, Kai finally completes the challenge. That night at Wu's monastery, Kai becomes attacked by three ninja. While they are battling, Wu stops them. He tells them that each for of them have a special element. He gives each of them elemental ninja suits. He reveals that Kai is the ninja of fire, Jay is the ninja of lightning, Zane is the ninja of ice, and Cole is the ninja of earth. On their quest to retake the map and get the weapons before Samukai, Wu advises the Ninja but acts as no immediate help. After the Ninja retrieved the Scythe of Quakes, Surikens of Ice, and Nunchucks of Lightning. Sensei Wu and the Ninja throw a small party in the forest. While the Ninja are sleeping, Kai believes he sees Nya. This was actually an illusion created by Garmadon to lead Kai into the Fire Temple where the real Nya was being dangled perilously. Shadow Garmadon tells Kai took the Sword of Fire or else he will kill Nya. Kai drew out the Sword of Fire and freed her. Kai said that Garmadon couldn't hurt them and was only a shadow. Garmadon told him that even shadows have their own uses and created evil shadows of Kai to attack him. However, Wu arrived and used his shadow to defeat the shadow puppets. He then sacrificed himself and the Sword of Fire by going to the Underworld to allow Kai and Nya to escape.
Shadows

Sensei Wu fighting Kai's Evil Shadows

At the Underworld, Sensei Wu sneeked to the throne room and met Lord Garmadon. However, Garamdon sent Samukai with the three golden weapons (he had stole the three while Wu was gone). Soon, the ninja recruited the guardian dragons to rescue Wu and the weapons. They made it to Garmadon's throne room and saw Sensei Wu and Samukai's battle. Unfortunatly, Wu lost the battle allowing Samukai to possess the Four Golden Weapons and betray Garmadon. However, Samukai didn't have enough power to possess the weapons and blew up. This caused a portal to the Dark Continent, which Garmadon escaped through, so he could have enough power to possess the weapons one day. This allowed the Ninja to take the Golden Weapons. However, Wu informed them to train so that when the time comes, they'll be ready.

The Serpentine

You are playing with a fire that cannot be controlled!
―Sensei Wu to Pythor

Wu insists that the ninja keep training, so they will reach their true potentials for Garmadon's return. Suddenly, Nya informs them that he indeed has. This turns out to be partly false as Wu's nephew, Lloyd Garmadon is terrorizing the village. After defeating Lloyd, the ninja discovered a scroll that had fallen from Wu's bag that told the prophecy of a Green Ninja, a destined hero who will defeat the Dark Lord. Later, the Ninja have a battle to see who will become the Green Ninja. However, they couldn't use their Golden Weapons, almost destroying the monastery. Wu comes and uses the Shurikiens of Ice to stop the fire. He then informs the Ninja that they need to reach their true potentials, or else none of them will become the Green Ninja.

To gain power, Lloyd began freeing the different Serpentine tribes. First, he freed the Hypnobrai. However, Wu used the Smoke Spirit and told the Ninja to defeat the snakes. After the Ninja's victory, Lloyd tells the Serpentine to build a tree fortress. The Ninja, led by the falcon attacked and destroyed the fortress. During the process, Cole became hypnotized and threatened to attack the Ninja. However, Sensei Wu used the Sacred Flute to un-hypnotize Cole. Later, Lloyd freed the Fangpyre. While the Ninja battled them in Ed & Edna's junkyard, Wu blew the Sacred Flute, annoying the Fangpyre. Wu was almost bit by one, until Edna knocked out the Fangpyre with a pan. The Ninja won the battle. After, becoming betrayed by the Fangpyre, Lloyd freed Pythor, the last Anacondrai. However, he was also betrayed by Pythor and captured by the Ninja. The Ninja wanted to punish Lloyd, but Wu read Lloyd a bedtime story called, "Never Trust a Snake." Lloyd, then joined Wu and the Ninja. In "Can of Worms", Wu used him to teach the ninja about the destructive power of rumors. The Ninja think that the lesson was lame. However, the lesson helps the Ninja to trick the Serpentine.

Later, Wu orders Zen-Xtreme outfits for the Ninja. However, the Ninja realize that there is a Samurai who seems to be replacing the Ninja. Wu tells them for the Samurai to inspire them, leaving the Ninja to have try to find the Samurai's identity. While, Kai was looking for the Samurai, he dropped Lloyd off at an arcade, where the Serpentine kidnapped him. It is later revealed that Nya is the Samurai.

When Lloyd was kidnapped by the serpentine in Pythor's quest to free The Great Devourer, Sensei Wu says that he will go on a journey alone. He uses Traveler's Tea to go to the Dark Continent and meets the now four-armed Lord Garmadon who defeats him. He tells Wu that he made a foolish choice to defeat him. However, Wu said he came to inform Garmadon that his son is in danger. Then, Garmadon joins forces with Wu and the ninja to rescue his son. After Lloyd is rescued, he is revealed to be the green ninja of the prophecy, but the Ninja and Samurai X are captured by the Serpentine before they were rescued by Garmadon and the Skulkin.

To try and prevent Pythor's plan from succeeding, Wu took the Fang Blades, which had been acquired by his students previously, to a volcano to destroy them. However, Pythor sabotages Destiny's Bounty and Wu falls overboard. The ninja rescue him, but Pythor collects the blades while they are distracted.

Wu, Samurai X, and the ninja go in pursuit of the Serpentine to rescue the Fang Blades and after Cole defeats Skales Wu goes after the only Serpentine left on the bus, Pythor. However, the Mailman bicycling in front of the bus causes it to take a sharp turn and flip. Pythor escapes and releases The Great Devourer, but not before Wu can put Pythor in its path, Wu again sacrificed himself and both were devoured.

After Garmadons, Nya, and the ninja defeat the monster, Wu is found to be alive, though Pythor, Lord Garmadon, and The Four Weapons (which were used by Garmadon to defeat The Great Devourer) are nowhere to be found.

The Dark Lord Returns

I fear a great disturbance in the force.
―Sensei Wu

During the clean-up of Ninjago City, Wu informed the original four ninja that it is now there duty to train Lloyd for the destined battle between himself and his father.

When Lord Garmadon does return, once again on the opposing side and allied with the Serpentine, he uses a Mega Weapon created from the four golden ones to create a portal to go back in time, though Kai, Zane, Cole, and Jay follow him. They meet the past's Sensei Wu and informed him of what time they are from and why they are there.

Eventually, several souvenirs in the museum are brought to life by the venom Great Devourer, and Wu and the ninja go to investigate. There, he encounters Misako, who is revealed to be Lloyd's mother. Soon afterwards Wu volunteers to help Misako with sort through her research on the green ninja prophecy, and it is revealed that they had a romantic past together when Misako says, "I should have chosen you". On the same day as this occurs, the Devourers venom reawakens the entire Stone Army underneath the city. The army begins attacking the city, and Wu, Misako, and the ninja work together to protect the citizens. During the disaster, Misako loses her research and must leave safety to try and retrieve them. Sensei Wu rushes off to save her, and they successfully retrieve the notes, but they are soon surrounded by Stone Warriors. They eventually jump out of the building they were in, but are saved by the Destiny's Bounty.

They set sail to the Dark Island, but the Destiny's Bounty's thrusters are damaged en route. They land on a small island where it is revealed that Dr. Julien was held, and he repairs their thrusters, enabling them to continue their voyage.

The Final Battle

We don't have weeks. The Final Battle starts today.
―Sensei Wu to Dr. Julien

At the Dark Island, Wu assists the ninja on their various missions, but mainly stays near the camp. He is, however, present when the ninja attempt to return the Helmet of Shadows to its pedestal to stop the final battle, but the group fails and Nya is separated from the rest of the group, who fall when a portion of the cliff they were standing on falls into the water. Kai and Jay want to rescue Nya, but Wu states that preparing for the final battle should be their priority, and that they can rescue Nya later. Soon afterwards, they find out about Garmadon's Super Weapon and track it to the Dark Island's coast. Their, they discover the Overlord's plan to fire Dark Matter to Ninjago to alter "the balance" and make it so he is able to cross over there. He also takes over Garmadon's body and fights Lloyd. In the aftermath, Lloyd breaks his leg and fails to stop the Overlord, who keeps the group alive but crosses over to Ninjago, leaving them behind.

The group sit on the beach, beginning to admit defeat, but Lloyd rallies them on and the Falcon informs them of another secret hidden in the Temple of Light. There, they find the Golden Mech, and they use this as well as the Ultra Dragon to escape the Dark Island and reach Ninjago. They proceed to fight the Stone Warriors, which soon became good by Darreth. Lloyd makes it to the top of the Garmatron (which had turned into a tower) and fought the Overlord. He became the Golden Ninja and defeated him. After the final battle, it is shown that

Wu and Garmadon

Garmadon is returned to normal in the process, and he reunites with is family. The ninja realize that their mission is over for the time being, but inform Wu that they'll always be ninja at heart.

REBOOTED

After this, Wu and the ninja founded a school where Darkley's Boarding School For Bad Boys used to be. They renamed it Sensei Wu's Youth Academy. Wu served as the headmaster and the ninja taught. Some time later, while taking his students on a field trip to tour Borg Industries in New Ninjago City, the Overlord virus takes control of Cyrus Borg and all the robots, androids, and vehicles connected to his network. Robots in Borg's hovercar plant attack Wu, Nya, and the students while the ninja try to escape with the Techno Blades given to them by Borg to help stop the Overlord. Wu and the students narrowly escaped. They had to get the TechnoBlades out of the city as quickly as possible, so Wu formulated a plan. It worked, but he was captured in the process. The Overlord used his newly acquired technologies to access Wu's memory, revealing to him the ninja's hiding places.

Evil Wu

Brother, why do we always have to be on opposite sides!
―Sensei Garmadon to Tech Wu
Soon, a stranger steals the Digital Overlord's hard drive and Wu. He adds robotic modification to Wu and uses Electro Cobrai to turn Wu into Tech Wu.
TechWu

Tech Wu

He gave him some Electro Cobrai, so he can power the Nindroids again.

While reviving the Nindroids, the Evil Wu runs into the Ninja. He tries to capture their Techno Blades but fails. He retreats along with the Stranger.

Soon, Tech Wu arrives at Hiroshi's Laboranth and fights Sensei Garmadon. He defeats him while Pythor captures Lloyd. The Overlord, possessing the MechDragon says he doesn't need Garmadon and has Tech Wu throw him in the ocean.

Wu and Garm

Wu turned good

Pythor and Wu then attack Borg Industries, using their using Lloyd's power the activate the Security Mechs and the Destructoid. Sensei Garmadon returns in a Nindroid outfit and defeats Wu. Soon, the Ninja reboot the system, turning Wu and the Mechs good.

The Golden Master

After Lloyd escaped from MechDragon, he gave up the last of his golden power to the bell at the Temple of Light, giving the Ninja their elemental powers back. As Wu agreed to the idea, Sensei Garmadon disagreed, telling Wu he puts the Ninja into too many risks. Zane and P.I.X.A.L. soon learn that Pythor and the Nindroids are up to something called "project arcturus." They also realize that the Overlord is still alive. After traveling to Ouroborous to find out about the project. The Ninja realize Arcturus is a spaceship and blast off to space. Sensei Garmadon then blames Wu for putting to Ninja into the risk.

Sensei Wu

Sensei Wu was a hero for many, many years on Ninjago. One day, he realized that the threats he was facing were too much for one champion. He recruited four boys and trained them in Spinjitzu, and they went on to defeat menaces like the skeleton army, the Serpentine, and the Stone Warriors. What no one knew was that Sensei Wu had seen a vision long ago which warned him of the many threats to come. Now the Sensei is leading his team into battle again. But before all is said and done, he may well find himself in the most terrible danger of his long career ... • Wu once trying to braid his beard but it looked ridiculous. • Wu, Garmadon and Kai's father used to go on a ventures together. • The symbol on Wu's clothing is the Ninjago symbol for 'destiny'- • Wu LOVES tea … but you probably knew that. • Wu's staff is several hundred years old.

Quotes

Iron sharpens iron, just as sibling sharpens sibling.
―Sensei Wu
There comes a time when we all must grow up. When that time comes, it's important not to forget the lessons of our childhood, because our childhood is the greatest training one can ever have. Yes, the time until the Final Battle has grown shorter, but the Green Ninja has grown stronger.
―Sensei Wu
We cannot change the past but we can improve for the future.
―Sensei Wu
If you can't change your circumstances, change yourself.
―Sensei Wu
