“You're talking about getting your hands on the Blade Cup? The most prized and heavily guarded award in all of Ninjago, the symbol of excellence in harmony and grace? You can't just get it, you have to earn it. You have to exhibit style. Perfect pitch. Push the boundaries of artistic license and win this year's Ninjago Talent Show!”
Lou to the ninja in "The Royal Blacksmiths"

The Blade Cup is a large golden trophy with a shining silver blade on top, awarded to the winner of the annual Ninjago Talent. According to Cole, it was created by adventurer Clutch Powers, using an artifact he found in the pyramid, which the ninja soon realized was the Constrictai Fangblade.

History

The Royal Blacksmiths

The Serpentine sought to claim the Blade Cup for the Fangblade within. To this end, Pythor commanded Lasha, Snappa, Mezmo, and Chokun to enter the competition as the Treble Makers, personally disguising himself as a judge to tilt the odds in their favor. Cole initially planned to steal it during the show, but an argument with his father - who had won the Blade Cup in previous years - made him decide to win it fairly.

Despite the Serpentines' interference, the ninja won the Talent Show with getting a perfect score, forcing Pythor to change his approach - when the ninja went backstage to meet with Lou, Pythor ordered Bytar to drop sandbags on the latter. When Cole jumped in to save his father (unlocking his True Potential in the process), Pythor used the commotion as a distraction to steal the Blade Cup and make his exit.

The Forgotten Element

The Blade Cup eventually found its way into the hands of Chen, who displayed it in his trophy hall.

Stiix and Stones

Shortly thereafter, Ronin obtained the Blade Cup and put it up for sale in his pawnshop in Stiix. Cole came across it and was dismayed to find it there. Later when the ninja broke in, the Master of Earth decided to return it to his father, the rightful owner.

The Belly of the Beast

When Zane entered Beohernie's stomach, the Blade Cup was one of the objects inside the beast's stomach.
