As LEGO NINJAGO approaches its 10th anniversary, it’s important to remember the minifigures and characters that brought this theme to where it is today, including the Elemental Masters that inhabit NINJAGO.
LEGO NINJAGO has seen many characters, minifigures and minifigures over its 10-year history. But none have been as beloved as the Elemental Masters. It can be difficult for some to remember how many have appeared over time.
Not to worry, as Brick Fanatics is delving deep into NINJAGO’s history to find every instance of an Elemental Master, and which sets they can be found in. From the core cast to the most niche character, here’s every instance of a LEGO NINJAGO Elemental Master minifigure.
This list will contain spoilers for characters from LEGO NINJAGO’s various seasons..
Creation and destruction
NINJAGO’s primary elements include creation and destruction. They are important even though they are not elements.
The ability to give birth and create from nothing is known as creation. It is now quite common, even though it was used by only a few characters.
Lord Garmadon and Sensei WU have used this power to good and evil. They are direct descendants of the First Spinjitzu Master, who created the NINJAGO universe.
Both Sensei Wu and Garmadon have appeared in a great many sets over the years and can currently be found in 71718 Wu’s Battle Dragon and 71701 Kai’s Fire DragonBoth contain a dragon, which is a NINJAGO creature that can also use the power to create.
Destruction is a power that is more common in characters than it is among minifigures. Destruction is a power that acts as the opposite of creation. It destroys what has already been built and takes what has life.
This power has been used in a number of characters, including Garmadon, Oni the villain and Mystake the tea-shop owner. The minifigures do not include Garmadon. Mystake was featured in70657 NINJAGO Docks, and the Oni in the 853866 Oni Villains Conflict Pack.
Energy, darkness and golden power
These three powers, only one of which is an element, were never used by more than two characters. Lloyd Garmadon is the Overlord and the green ninja.
Both darkness and gold power are the ultimate powers that can either lighten or darken the show and have only been used a few times. They have never been used in any way by The Overlord nor the green ninja. Energy is Lloyd Garmadon’s elemental power and the most powerful elemental ability.
Coincidentally, both of these characters are included in the new 2021 NINJAGO heritage set71742 Overlord Draconian. This set recreates the epic battle of light and dark. Read our review.
Fire, water, earth, lightning, ice
These elements are possessed primarily by the Japanese ninja, who is the most commonly seen minifigure in this theme. These powers are held Nya, Cole Jay Jay, Jay Jay, Jay and Jay, who have all been in far too many sets.
However, all these characters can be found in a single set with their mobile headquarters as well as home away. 71705 Destiny’s Bounty depicts a vehicle that has become a frequent set over NINJAGO’s lifespan and is the only currently available set to include all six ninjas, including a much younger Lloyd Garmadon.
Amber, smoke, shadow
Amber is one of the more interesting elemental abilities. The user can touch any element to create it. Although only one character has used it, their minifigure has been seen three times in sets. Skylor was first seen as Skylor in 70746 Condrai Copter Attack. Later, she was spotted in a new suit with the 853687 Accessory Set. Skylor was most recently seen in 70651 Throne Room Showdown.
Shadow makes it impossible for users to be seen in shadow, completely blending them together. Smoke transforms the user’s body into smoke, becoming intangible and unstoppable for a time. Shade and Ash have used both these powers to help the NINJAGO. They were with Skylor in 853687’s Accessory Pack.
Speed and metal
They are truly immovable because of the Elemental power metal gives users. They are transformed into a shiny metallic form, which transforms them into a powerful and long-lasting being. Karlof is one of the few to possess this power.
Speed allows the wielder to move quickly and dodge almost all attacks. This power belongs to Griffin Turner, and both his and Karlof’s minifigures remain exclusive to 70756 Dojo Showdown
Mind and time
The Elemental Master of mind has the power to read other’s thoughts and predict their movements. They can also distract them with a sharp headache, which makes it very strategic. This power was first seen in the 5004938 Bricktober Minifigure Pack. He was seen with the master of Fire, and one of the masters at time.
The most powerful ability in NINJAGO’s world is time. It has four main functions. It has four main functions. You can speed up or slow it down, rewind and stop time. There were two masters of time, who existed simultaneously. Acronix and Krux appeared as the main villains of 70626 Dawn of Iron Doom.
Another elemental master winds is another one that used their power to gain selfish ends, becoming a villain in NINJAGO. Morro was the antagonist of the 2015 Possession wave. He took on a ghostly form to enslave Lloyd because he was jealous of Lloyd’s selection as the green Ninja. Set 70743 and 70738 also included Morro.
Poisonous, dangerous light
The Elemental Masters’ designs are more striking because they are based on LEGO Ultra Agents’ minifigures. Tox, Paleman, Paleman were the names for the NINJAGO characters. Their Ultra Agents counterparts appeared at the same time.
Toxikita appeared in both waves of Ultra Agents in 70163 Toxikita’s Toxic Meltdown and 70169 Agent Stealth Patrol. Her design features a tank top and spiked collar with green marks. Invizable was a rising star. 70167 Invizable gold getaway,where she was able to use her powers, including invisibility.
The NINJAGO characters are the same in both ability and design to that of the Ultra Agents villains, and their minifigures have only appeared in that theme’s sets so far. Both characters have been a part the show’s newer seasons, even after their Ultra Agents debut.
Nature, gravity, sound
There are only four Elemental masters remaining, with three of them appearing as part of a new set in 2021. Brick Fanatics recently reviewed 71735 Tournament of ElementsIt will be launched alongside the LEGO NINJAGO range of products on January 1. This new model includes three minifigures required to complete Elemental Masters.
Gravis is the ruler and master over gravity. Gravis has the ability to control all natural forces. Gravis’s ability to control the natural forces around him can enable him to fly and lift other objects, or people, by changing their gravity or inverting them. Jacob is a master of sound, and uses his sitar to create sound waves that can be used to echolocate dangers.
The element of Nature grants the user the ability manipulate plant life and speed growth to trap enemies. Bolobo, the master of this power, completes the set. His minifigure appearance, which is bare-chested is unique to the show, is also unique. It gives the character an even more natural appearance.
Form is the last element of the NINJAGO universe. This allows the master of form to change their appearance or voice as they please. Chamille, the master form creator is not yet featured in any LEGO sets.
The LEGO Group has one remaining character, so hopefully they can complete this five-year-long series. Chamille was the last person to mention that she had been to hell. This could be a sign of a future on the side the villains but we can only hope it’s at least a minifigure.
