Cardinsto is a villain in the LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu book Stone Cold. He is an Elemental Master of Nature and once fought against Master Wu, only to be defeated and trapped in the Tower of Tears. Later Lord Garmadon would blow up the Tower of Tears and order Cardinsto to kill Wu.
After defeating Time Ninja, Wu attempts to find sleep, only for his staff, alongside other wooden objects, to come to life and attack him. Incapacitated, he's confronted by Cardinsto, a man with the ability to control nature. Bragging that even if Wu's powers were as numerous as insects in a field, Cardinsto proceeds to make the entire building collapse on Wu before taking his leave.
Master Wu, however, narrowly survives and realizes that someone was directing the escapees' attacks on him. Before he can decide, however, Cardinsto attacks a town with his army of plants, forcing Wu to intervene. Using spinjitzu, he tunnels underground several times, eventually awaking and incurring the wrath of a massive beast that had been slumbering underground.
Desperate to escape the monster, Cardinsto is rescued by Wu, who reveals the beast can only stay awake for a minute at a time, even as the creature promptly falls asleep. After using spinjitzu to leave Cardinsto incredibly dizzy, he manages to learn at least that the one directing the attacks has an enormous hatred of him. Before he can learn the being's identity, however, a flash of light blinds Wu, and even as Cardinsto screams in horror, he disappears, leaving behind several weapons and bones.
Abilities and Traits
- Plant/Nature Army Generation - As displayed in Stone Cold, he can generate and create an army from plants or nature to attack other enemies.
- It's unknown if he really is an Elemental Master of Nature, or just uses witchcraft. This makes him similar to either Bolobo or Clouse. However, since Wu says he's a wizard, he may just use magic.
- He shares the same hairpiece as Cole's movie variant and Teen Wu. Interestingly, the hairpiece was released five years after Stone Cold.
- He was misspelled as "Candisto" when Gahrann in disguise of a Fire Dragon says it.
