“Some few escaped, but the Re-Awakened roam the caves, hunting us down, hoping to capture us for the Skull Sorcerer.”
Gulch to Kai and Zane in "Trial By Mino"

The Awakened Warriors, also known as the Re-Awakened, were black skeletons that lived in the Dungeons of Shintaro. They were undead beings resurrected to fight as the Skull Sorcerer's army.


Into the Dark

The Awakened Warriors are seen patrolling the underground mine. When Cole decides to intervene, the Awakened Warriors attack, but Cole defeats them. However, the Skull Sorcerer uses the Skull of Hazza D'ur to revive the Awakened Warriors who are able to take Cole down.

The Worst Rescue Ever

The Awakened Warriors monitor the work of the Geckles and Munce while forcing Cole into labor. When Cole is caught talking to a Geckle, an Awakened Warrior uses his whip to force him to work.

Later, the Awakened Warriors serve porridge to the inmates and watch over the tribes.

The Ninja arrive at the Dungeons of Shintaro and defeat a couple of Awakened Warriors to rescue Cole. When the reinforcement arrive, the Ninja easily defeat the skeletons; however, the Skull Sorcerer uses the Skull of Hazza D'ur to revive his army and take down the Ninja.

The Two Blades

While the Ninja are working, Cole catches sight of an Awakened Warrior whipping a Mino, so he throws his pickaxe at the skeleton. The Awakened Warrior loses his whip and attempts to punish Cole, but Nya grabs him and Cole destroys him. Nevertheless, more reinforcements arrived and the Ninja are imprisoned.

The Ninja begin their escape plan by freeing themselves and destroying the skeletons surrounding them. They then free everyone, but more skeletons arrive. The Ninja buy time by pouring porridge on the warriors and releasing the Minos.


The Skull Sorcerer flies to the Dungeons of Shintaro and demands the Awakened Warriors to open the door to a dead Grief-Bringer. He then uses the Skull of Hazza D'ur to revive the former dragon.

During the truce meeting, the Ninja spot Grief-Bringer as well as the Awakened Warriors marching towards them. Lloyd and Zane try to hold back Grief-Bringer, but they are unable to and as they flee, the Awakened Warriors throw their spears at them.

The Darkest Hour

The Awakened Warriors follow everyone to the Geckle Strong-Cave. In order to allow the Munce to close the gate, the Ninja by time by fighting the Awakened Warriors. When Murtessa finally breaks the chains, the Ninja flee the fight.

Barricade inside, the Awakened Warriors use a ram to destroy the wooden door and with the help of Grief-Bringer, they destroy the door. The Ninja strike a deal with the Skull Sorcerer to surrender themselves, but in exchange, the Munce and Geckles could be free. Some of the Awakened Warriors head with the Ninja, but the others stay behind. The Skull Sorcerer ends up double-crossing and captures everyone.

The Upply Strike Back!

Enslaved once again, the Awakened Warriors observe all of the Munce and Geckles and whip anyone for slacking off. An Awakened Warrior is about to whip Murtessa, but Korgran punches him and hands the keys to free themselves.

During the execution, the Awakened Warriors who is supposed to release Grief-Bringer is sleeping, so the Skull of Hazza D'ur shoots a beam at him. He wakes up and begins to release the dragon, but Cole throws a rock at him and he's destroyed.

As Cole is fighting the Skull Sorcerer, the Munce and Geckles free themselves and start fighting. In addition, the Upply and Ninja soon join and are forced to keep up with the Awakened Warriors being rebuilt.

The Son of Lilly

The Ninja, Geckles, Munce, and the Upply continue to fight the Awakened Warriors, but are overwhelmed by the number of skeleton warriors and the fact they keep restoring themselves at a quick pace. Luckily, Vania and the Winged Guards of Shintaro arrive and help fight the warriors.

While Cole is fighting the Skull Sorcerer, he unlocks the Spinjitzu Burst and destroys the Skull of Hazza D'ur, which in turn, decimated the Awakened Warriors.


The Awakened Warriors were made out of dark gray bones and had no flesh covering their skin. They had glowing, green eyes when they were alive, but when they were defeated at any time, their eyes would turn to the same color as their body. Moreover, they all wear helmets with a bone placed on top.

Powers and Abilities

For most characters, defeating the Awakened Warriors was very effortless due to being made out of bones. They would shatter on contact with any weapon or fighting ability.  

Due to the power of the Skull of Hazza D'ur, they are one of the tougher villainous factions due to the ability to rebuild themselves after being destroyed. Unlike the Vermillion, fighters are unable to separate any pieces of the Awakened Warriors since they will automatically restore themselves. This makes it very difficult for fighters since they'll have to constantly fight. It gets even tougher when there are a mob of Awakened Warriors as they can overwhelm a group of fighters as seen with the Ninja in their first attempt to rescue Cole.

Season 13: Master of the Mountain


  • They had no connections to the Skulkin, despite also being undead, skeletal warriors.
  • In the series, they use Vengestone Spears and whips, while in the sets they exclusively use silver katanas.
  • They used the same pieces as Legacy Kruncha but have black bones added to their helmets.
  • The Awakened Warriors are similar to Dry Bones from the Mario franchise. Both are skeletons and able to rebuild themselves after being defeated.
  • They are similar to the Vermillion as they are able to rebuild themselves after being destroyed as well. The difference is, though, that the Awakened Warriors' source of power comes from the Skull of Hazza D'ur.
