|“Today's news, tomorrow's history, I'm Dan Vaapit, and this is Ninjago City News. Chaos. Fireballs! Serpents! Our city is under attack... again.”|
|— Dan Vaapit in "Snaketastrophy"|
Dan Vaapit is the anchor for NGTV news.
Dan Vaapit attempts to keep the news report going, but there are awkward moments such as Gayle Gossip following an Elemental Cobra instead of reporting about a puppy-petting competition, May Robsen agreeing with Andrea Thomson despite holding a panel discussion, and Aspheera interrupting the broadcast to make an announcement.
- 108. "Snaketastrophy"
- His last name is likely a pun on the word "vapid," meaning "Offering nothing that is stimulating or challenging," which would be a jab at news shows that do not have any substantive content.
- He uses the same hairpiece as Cecil Putnam, originally Superman's from LEGO's DC Super Heroes theme.
