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 remembering how many have appeared throughout the years.
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 create life from nothing is called 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 Dragon, which both contain a dragon, a creature in NINJAGO that is also able to use the power of creation.
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 by many characters, including Garmadon and Oni, the villain, as well as Mystake, who is the tea-shop proprietor. The minifigures do not include Garmadon. Mystake was featured on 70657 NINJAGO City Docks and the Oni in 853866 Oni Villains combat Pack.
Energy, darkness and golden power
These three powers, one of which is an element and the other two are only available to 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 either by The Overlord, nor by the green Ninja. Energy is Lloyd Garmadon’s elemental power and the most powerful elemental ability.
Both of these characters are also featured in the 2021 NINJAGO legacy set 71742 Overlord Dragon. This set recreates the epic battle of light and dark. Check out 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 and Cole Jay, Jay Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Zane, all of whom have appeared in far too numerous sets.
All of these characters can be found together in one set, with their mobile headquarters or 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 and shadow
Amber is one of the most interesting elemental abilities. It allows the user to touch any element to copy it. It has been used by only one character so far, but their minifigures have appeared three times in sets. Skylor was first seen as Skylor in 70746 Condrai Copter Attack. Later, she was spotted in a new suit and 853687 Accessory Set. Skylor recently appeared in 70651 Throne Room Showdown.
Shadow makes it impossible to see the user when they are in shadow. It completely blends them together. Smoke transforms the user’s body into smoke, becoming intangible and unstoppable for a time. Shade and Ash used both of these powers to save NINJAGO. They were with Skylor during the 853687 Accessory Package.
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 the only one with this power.
Speed allows the wielder to move very fast and dodge almost every attack. 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 can be used to speed up, slow down, rewind, or stop time. There were two masters of time, who existed simultaneously. Acronix and Krux were the main villains in 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 villain in 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 and 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 made an appearance around the same time.
Toxikita appeared in both waves of Ultra Agents in 70163 Toxikita’s Toxic Meltdown and 70169 Agent Stealth Patrol. Her design includes a tank-top, spiked collar and green marks on her skin. Invizable was a star of 70167 Invizable gold escape, where she had powers such as 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 and sound
Only four Elemental masters remain, with three of them appearing as part of a new set in 2021. Brick Fanatics recently reviewed 71735 Tournament of Elements. It will launch alongside the LEGO NINJAGO range of products on January 1. This new model comes with three minifigures, which are necessary to complete the Elemental Masters.
Gravis is the ruler of gravity and the master. Gravis is gifted with the ability to control the natural forces around them. Gravis can fly and lift other objects and people by altering their gravity or inverting gravity. Jacob is a master at sound and uses his sitar to produce sound waves to echolocate potential dangers.
The element of nature gives the user the power to manipulate plant life, speed up growth, and 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 to change their appearance and voice whenever they want. Chamille is the master creator of forms, but has yet to appear in any LEGO sets.
With only one remaining character, the LEGO Group should be able 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.
