This article is about a subject that is relevant to the storyline of both the LEGO Ninjago TV series and the LEGO Movie franchise. Information may be more directed toward one continuity than the other.

We have a really cool Monastery, video games, a hot tub, uh, there's just these chickens you have to watch out for.”
Lloyd to Akita, "My Enemy, My Friend"

Chickens are animals that live in Ninjago, the Never-Realm, and Prime Empire. Wu somehow obtained a chicken at some point after the Oni Invasion. Okino also owns a chicken.


Since ancient times, chickens have inhabited the Mountains of Impossible Height. The first monks built the walls of the Monastery of Spinjitzu extra tall to keep them out. However, they failed and many monks were lost. In order to survive, the monks became faster, stronger, and more cunning, evolving into ninja.

At some point, Wu either purchased or found a chicken upon seeing his ninja become lazy.

Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu

Wasted True Potential

After catching them in their hot tub which they made out of a sacred bell, Wu gives them a lecture on monks who became ninja and combat strange animals while the chicken was in a nearby box. Wu then tells them to survive five minutes with what was inside and left. When the box opened, revealing the chicken, the ninja assumed it was a joke until it suddenly glows with a creepy blue color and attacks them. They all manage to grab the chicken and put it back in the box in less than five minutes.

Later that night, when Cole goes for a fridge raid, the chicken was in it and attacked him.

The following morning, after defeating his ninja easily, Wu unleashes his chicken on them as punishment.

Questing for Quests

The chicken was seen pecking at the ground while Wu swept nearby when the ninja came back, following some failed quests, dead ends or false leads when helping the Ninjago City Police.

A Rocky Start

As the ninja unintentionally overpack, Jay was chasing after the chicken as it wore his travel pillow before grabbing it. It tries to grab it again, but Jay moves it away.
