After possessing Lloyd, Morro goes to Steep Wisdom tea shop looking for Master Wu and the Staff. After a battle between the ninja and Wu, the staff is dropped over some dust, revealing the engraved symbols. Both Wu and Morro are surprised at this, and the struggle continues. Master Wu manages to retrieve the staff, and he, the ninja, and Nya escape on the Destiny's Bounty.
Morro chases the Destiny's Bounty on his Dragon to get the staff back. He lands on the ship and attacks the ninja. While Jay, Cole, and Nya (as Samurai X) try to fend him off, Wu, Kai, and Zane brought it to their quarters in an attempt to print the symbols on parchment paper. However, despite their efforts, Morro gains the staff and flies it away. Luckily, Wu managed to make an imprint of the message before giving up the staff, which is later deciphered by Misako, who reveals that the first symbol means "Airjitzu."
Later that night, Morro walks into a bar, where he lays out the staff on some chalk, revealing the symbols. He then summons Wrayth, who may have helped him figure out the first symbol.
The ninja see that the last symbol refers to the First Spinjitzu Master's tomb.
The ninja, Morro, and his Ghost Warriors go to the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master. After the ninja complete the first challenge, the second challenge appears to be to obtain the First Spinjitzu Master's other staff. They try extremely hard to get it but no matter how hard they try, it is impossible. Then Cole realizes that they have to think about the clue, "A Spinjitzu Master cannot," meaning that since they are all Spinjitzu Masters, they were never meant to get the staff.
Bo staff is a sand-brown bamboo staff with a slightly enlarged section near one end. Since Season 11, Wu has been using a new staff that is made of a different darker wood, it has not enlarged one end and there is a white fabric in the middle of the staff for a more comfortable grip. There are notches around the perimeter at both ends of the staff.
In the sets, the staff is brown without an enlarged one end, although on one side of the staff is a thicker part. In 71702 Golden Mech, the staff is sand-brown color to look more like its counterpart in the show.
Techno Wu uses bo staff made of black wood or metal with red markings.
When you don't have the words, use a Really Big stick to get your point across. It may not be pretty, but - POW - it works. It's very effective, 'cause no one likes to get hit with a Really Big Stick.[link unavailable]
Some weapons just never go out of style. Sensei Wu swears by the ancient Nin-jô. Simple and classic, this staff knows no limits in the hands of the trained Ninja.[link unavailable]
