“Chickens are fast and dangerous!”

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

After the Oni's invasion, Wu found a chicken in the area around the monastery upon seeing his ninja become lazy.[1]

Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu

Wasted True Potential

After catching the ninja in their "hot tub," which they made out of a sacred bell, Master 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.
