Creation   Golden Power   Creation (The LEGO Ninjago Movie)    
Power? Father, what is he talking about?”
“What do you think? The power of your grandfather. The power of Creation.”
Lloyd and Garmadon in "The Fall"

Creation is an Elemental essence in Ninjago,[1] comprised of the four main elements: Fire, Lightning, Ice, and Earth, and the opposite of Destruction. It has a golden color and corresponds with the Master Wu Dragon. It is the power Wu inherited from his father, originating from the Dragons of the First Realm. Creation itself is rarely used on its own; however, the Ninja can use it with the Tornado of Creation, Master Wu can use it both with or without his Spinjitzu, and Lord Garmadon was able to use it with the Golden Weapons and Mega Weapon before it was destroyed. However, upon unlocking his own True Potential, Garmadon was able to gain access to his dormant element of Creation, utilizing it to create a large stone monster that would cause much chaos upon Ninjago City.

Users' Abilities

  • Materiokinesis - The user can create and manipulate both organic and inorganic matter for multiple purposes. Using the four main elements (as demonstrated with the Tornado of Creation), materials and objects can be collected and combined to form a new object (which can be of great size, as demonstrated with the Tornado of Creation which built things like a massive Ferris Wheel out of bones, a gigantic slingshot, and the Ultra Sonic Raider). The user (or users) can, as Master Wu said while describing the Tornado of Creation, "create something, out of nothing."
  • Materialization - The user can also create organic or inorganic matter from nothing or create anything he or she wants, even souls or life, either as finished objects or simply unfinished elements; the user has the power to make it a reality.
    • Matter Creation - The user can create any type of artificial, organic, or inorganic matter from nothing, as well any object, as demonstrated by Garmadon when he created the Colossus with his True Potential.
    • Constructs Materialization - Users can change anything into tools, objects, weapons, and other items and create structures/buildings of varying permanence. The users who have mastered this ability can use it for almost any situation, creating anything they need. Garmadon used this technique to aid his True Potential when creating the Colossus.
    • Matter Melding - User (or users) can cause separate and distinct items to combine into one new item. Some can fuse multiple different elements to make one new. This ability can extend to morphing and reshaping existing matter on physical contact.
    • Matter Alteration - Users are capable of transmuting matter into different forms. They are capable to create and absorb matter and energy, shape, and rebuild it into anything of their choosing.
  • Elemental Manipulation - The user can manipulate and create the basic elements of nature (Fire, Earth, Lightning, and Ice), due to Creation comprising them.
  • Materio-Ergokinesis - Users can manipulate creative energy.
    • Energy Wave - The user can release a wave of energy that sends opponents flying.
    • Energy Infusion/Strike - The user can infuse themselves or an object with energy to increase the strength of their blows.
  • Longevity - Dragons are very long-lived, such as the Firstbourne, who has lived for millennia.
  • Portal Creation - As demonstrated by the Dragons in "Weapons of Destiny", "Lessons for a Master", "Green and Gold" (Lloyd's flashback) and "Endings" (Faith's flashback) the user can create portals to travel between Realms and from one place to another or to direct their attacks.

Abilities Via Mega Weapon

After forging the Four Golden Weapons into the Mega Weapon, Garmadon was able to use Creation to grant him a variety of different abilities.

  • Wish Granting - As demonstrated by Garmadon using the Mega Weapon, the user has the ability to grant himself wishes, as long as they don't destroy anything.
    • Duplication - By granting himself wishes, Garmadon was able to use Creation, to create evil doppelgängers of the Ninja and duplicate the original ninjas' elemental powers as well.
    • Elemental Manipulation - Since the Mega Weapon was made from the Four Golden Weapons, it possessed the power to allow it's user to manipulation the Elements of Creation (Fire, Ice, Lightning, and Earth), along with other secondary elements. This could be accomplished by granting wishes to yourself.
      • Time Manipulation - By granting himself wishes, Garmadon was able to use the Mega Weapon to allow him to manipulate Time.
        • Time Travel - As demonstrated by Garmadon using the Mega Weapon, the user has the ability to travel through time. This can be accomplished by granting yourself wishes through the Mega Weapon.
        • Resurrection - By granting himself wishes through the Mega Weapon, Garmadon used Creation to turn back time and resurrect the Grundle to hunt the Ninja.
      • Mind Manipulation - As demonstrated when the Mega Weapon was destroyed, it was able to erase the memory of anyone who wasn't present at it's destruction. However, creatures that have abilities such as the Serpentine or the The Overlord, weren't affected the the memory wipe as demonstrated that the Serpentine remembered Garmadon had a Mega Weapon and the Overlord knew that once the Ninja destroyed Garmadon's Mega Weapon, it ended up on a comet in space.
  • Disintegration - The Mega Weapon's powers can disintegrate anyone who doesn't have his or her own elemental powers. This is seen when the weapon disintegrated a pirate who try to steal it from Garmadon[2] and a Nindroid who touched the Mega Weapon fused with the Golden Weapons on the comet.[3] However, if a person has their own elemental powers, the Mega-Weapon won't be able to disintegrate them.[4]

Notable Users




  • In the pilot episodes, Wu performed actions that have been misconceived as genuine usage of Creation. In actuality, they were not.
    • He merely changed the ninja's clothing at incredible speed when he first gave them their starting ninja outfits, rather than creating the suits from scratch or using Spinjitzu.[6]
    • He appeared to have pulled a teacup from thin air as an example of what Creation could do, but he did not create the teacup.[7]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, the reason Wu rarely uses Creation is that "power must be used with care. Wu is wise and knows not to overuse."[8]
  • Contrary to popular belief, Creation is not an element—it is an elemental essence, like Destruction.[1]
  • Creation originated in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, specifically being the main power of the Dragons of said realm.
  • When the Overlord became the Golden Master and had the power of the Four Golden Weapons, it is possible that he had the power of Creation.
  • The power of Creation can be credited as being able to create entire landmasses, as the First Spinjitzu Master demonstrated.
    • The First Spinjitzu Master, however, was the most powerful user of Creation so it is currently unknown if his sons or anyone with the power could replicate the feat.
    • The First Spinjitzu Master also does not require materials to construct his creations,[citation needed] which could mean this level of Creation was exclusive to him.
      • This is likely because the First Spinjitzu Master possesses the Golden Power.
