Ninjago is a subtheme in Lego Worlds
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, Wu and his older brother Garmadon, swore to protect them. Garmadon was bitten by The Great Devourer, a snake that was consumed by darkness. Garmadon was then consumed by darkness, and wanted to possess the weapons and reshape Ninjago in his own image. 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 guardian dragons to protect them and for fear of his own demise, a map for an honest man to hide. Because Garmadon could not 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. Kai was reluctant to join at first, but when Garmadon kidnapped Kai's sister Nya, he decided to train and join the ninja team to save her life. After months of training, the four ninja began their quest to find the legendary 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, while Samukai's skeletal legions followed them. Kai was lured into a trap at the Fire Temple by Lord Garmadon, and the skeletons stole the three weapons the ninja had collected, 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. After taming the four dragons, they journeyed to the Underworld using the dragons' ability to travel between the mortal world and the Underworld to help Sensei Wu stop Garmadon once and for all. 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) 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. However, Samukai was destroyed by all the weapon's power, as no mortal could handle all of the golden power at once. Using the portal through space and time created by Samukai when he wielded all four weapons, he traveled to an evil place called The Dark Continent where he gained even more power, planning to return for the weapons. Sensei Wu knew Garmadon would one day return, and that the battle for Ninjago had only just begun.
Season 1 (2012)Edit
The ninjas 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, the ancient human-snake people, to be wreak maximum carnage in Ninjago under his control. Kai, Cole, Zane and Jay got into the battle once again. They also accidentally found out that one of them will rise and become the Green Ninja, the ninja destined to defeat the Dark Lord and save Ninjago. When Lloyd unleashed Fangpyre and Hypnobrai tribes, he looked for the third tribe, Anacondrai, who are the most powerful. He found out that Pythor P. Chumsworth is the only survivor of that tribe. Together with Pythor, Lloyd attacked Ninjago once more but Pythor betrayed him, capturing him, but ninjas saved him.
Lloyd continued travelling with ninja, while Pythor continued his plan to unite all Serpentine tribes. He released two more, Venomari and Constrictai giving ninja even more powerful enemies to fight. Sensei Wu told ninjas the story about The Great Devourer, a monstrous serpent-like reptile who turned his brother evil, that will consume the entire land into darkness. He can only be released with the Four Fang Blades, which is Pythor's primary mission. He also tells them that they need to unlock their full potentials to defeat the enemy. He then leaves his students. Ninja unlock their true potential, learn the secrets of their Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu.
Meanwhile Wu takes the 'Traveller's Tea' that leads him to the Dark Continent. He meets his brother Garmadon again, telling him that his son released the Serpentine so he needs to get back and help them in the fight. He joins him and they escape back to Ninjago, where they find that ninjas already unlocked their powers, except Kai who still believes he is the Green Ninja. Kai suspects Garmadon about him joining them. Ninja travel to stop Pythor for getting the last Fang Blade and killing Lloyd. In the end of the battle near in the Volcano Temple where the blade is located, Kai finally reaches his potential and saves Lloyd instead of saving the Fang Blade. However, it turns out that Lloyd is actually the Green Ninja, as golden weapons react near him.
The last Fang Blade survived the eruption and Pythor gets it so ninja race him to prevent him from getting to the City of Ouroboros and awakening the Devourer. They do not suceed and Devourer wakes and attacks the Ninjago City, while ninjas get into the final battle against Devourer to save their city. Remaining Serpentine get back to their tombs. In the end, Garmadon gets the Golden Weapons, and for revenge of making him evil, destroys the Devourer. The Ninja prepare to train Lloyd so he can be ready to face his father one day for the sake of Ninjago.
Season 2 (2012-2013)Edit
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 (2014)Edit
It has been a long time since the Overlord was defeated by Lloyd. 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 ninja 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 when trouble brews in New Ninjago City, famed inventor Cyrus Borg starts acting strange, and the ninja obtain the Techno Blades. They find out that the Overlord survived and lives as a digital virus in Borg Industries. When the Overlord discovers that the ninja found the Techno blades, he hacks the whole system and turns Sensei Wu into evil Tech Wu.
Digital Overlord's new servant P.I.X.A.L creates the army of evil Nindroids led by General Cryptor. P.I.X.A.L attacks Sensei Garmadon's monastery, but Zane defeats her and re-programs her, and she warns them about Nindroids. Lloyd and his father get separated from the Ninja, escaping to Hiroshi's Labyrinth while the Ninja turn off the power in all of Ninjago.
Pythor, who survived being eaten by the Devourer but got his skin bleached white, steals the hard drive containing the Overlord, and asks to help him, still wanting revenge on the people. The ninja find the Serpentine, who tell them about an old legend, about a fabled "Golden Master". The Overlord plans to become the Golden Master so he captures Lloyd and drains him of his golden power. However, Cyrus Borg finds the way how to defeat the Overlord so the Ninja enter the Digiverse and fight the Overlord in his virus form. They defeat him, rebooting the system and turning Wu back to normal state, but the Overlord creates a body and uses it to escape the Digiverse.
Pythor starts "Project Arcturus", in which he plans to send the Nindroids to space to collect the Golden Weapons, the last source of golden power. Meanwhile, Lloyd splits his remaining power between the four ninja, and everyone gets their Elemental Powers back. Pythor sends the Nindroids to space, and the Ninja follow, but are unable to stop the Nindroids. The Overlord becomes the Golden Master, and Zane sacrifices himself and explodes, killing himself and the Overlord. However, while P.I.X.A.L. is mourning at Borg Industries, a familiar, a digitized voice asks her, "Are we compatible...now?"
Season 4 (2015)Edit
The ninja are fractured at the loss of Zane. However, when the mysterious Master Chen invites the four ninja to the Tournament of Elements, he promises that their friend is still alive. The ninja and Garmadon travel to Chen's Island, and Garmadon reveals that there are other people with Elemental Powers, and that him and Clouse, Chen's right hand man, once trained under the mysterious host.
Eventually, the ninja discover that Chen plans to steal all of the Elemental Master's powers to perform a spell. Nya (who later goes to search for the ninja) discovers that the spell will turn everyone with the Mark of the Anacondrai (including Chen, Clouse, Garmadon, and Skylor, Chen's daughter) into Anacondrai. Chen manages to steal everyone's Elemental Powers, but Kai breaks the Staff of Elements (with some help from Skylor and Lloyd), and Cole, Jay, and Zane (who rebuilt himself, becoming the Titanium Ninja) drive Chen and his cultists into exile on the island, but not before Chen captures Skylor.
Clouse discovers that Skylor can complete the spell due to her uncanny ability to wield all of the Elemental Powers. Clouse and Garmadon face off, and Garmadon banishes Clouse to the Cursed Realm. The ninja try to stop the spell, but Chen manages to complete it, and everyone with the Mark of the Anacondrai are turned. The Anacondrai Tribe then travel to Ninjago, ready to take over. The Elemental Masters follow when Zane realizes that they can all manifest Elemental Dragons, like Lloyd.
Chen discovers that to make the spell permanent he'll need the essence of a true Anacondrai, which leads him to Pythor. He makes the spell permanent, and the ninja get the citizens of Ninjago to fight the army at the Corridor of Elders. The Anacondrai cross the line of no return, but Pythor realizes that there is another way to stop them; if the Anacondrai Generals (who were banished to the Cursed Realm) were to see these wannabes, they would destroy them. However, to open the Cursed Realm, Garmadon has to sacrifice himself. He does, and all is saved, even if the price was terrible. As the ninja, Sensei Wu, Nya, Misako, and Dareth gather around the campfire and burn the spellbook, a shadowy figure flies through the air and screams, "Morro..!"
