|“Oh, then there's Doubloon. A two-faced thief caught trying to steal N-Nadakhan's gold. He tried wishing his way out of his sentence, but cap was so impressed with his agility, he went ahead and actually made him two-faced.”|
|— Clancee to Jay in "My Dinner With Nadakhan"|
Doubloon is a member of Nadakhan's Sky Pirates. Originally an ordinary citizen, he was a clever thief who would talk continuously, and he learned the art of Spinjitzu at some point. He was discovered by Nadakhan when he tried stealing loot from Misfortune's Keep. However, he was caught in the middle of the act, and upon seeing his skills Nadakhan made his face a fusion of two masks, so he can only look happy or sad. Though he never talks due to his distorted face, Doubloon is an effective fighter and has become a valued member of Nadakhan's crew.

Doubloon was originally a human "two-faced thief" and at one point learned Spinjitzu. Aboard the Misfortune's Keep, he attempted to steal Nadakhan's gold. Nadakhan confronted and while Doubloon tried to wish his way out of his sentence, Nadakhan was so impressed by his skills that he made Doubloon literally two-faced and cemented his induction into the Sky Pirates, where he would eventually become the fighter.
Doubloon was rescued from his realm by Nadakhan using the Realm Crystal. After reuniting with the rest of the crew and celebrating, Doubloon accompanied his captain to Djinjago, and after witnessing its destruction and Nadakhan obtaining the Djinn Blade, fled back to Ninjago.
With the help of his fellow crew, Doubloon converted the Misfortune's Keep into an airship and later crashed into the Mountain of a Million Steps. He proceeded to later reunite with the rest of Nadakhan's marooned crew before attacking New Ninjago City. After engaging Lloyd and Cole in combat and utilizing Spinjitzu against them, he was evaded by the two of them using Airjitzu and later fled with his fellow Sky Pirates after Kai was sucked into the Sword of Souls.
Doubloon was present when Nadakhan revealed the construction of the newly-created Djinjago.
After being instructed by Flintlocke on the strengths and weaknesses of the Raid Zeppelin, Doubloon attempted to capture a fleeing Jay. He eventually engaged in Jay's second match of Scrap and Tap and won, before later being present after he and the other Sky Pirates tricked Jay into thinking they were on his side.
Doubloon participated in the fight with the ninja and fell off of the Misfortune's Keep as a result of Cole's wish, but landed safely on the clouds thanks to Nya's wish. He proceeded to leave on one of the Raid Zeppelins after the fight ended.
Doubloon was present as the Police Commissioner, Tommy, and Simon jumped off of the Misfortune's Keep and later witnessed Flintlocke's failed mutiny and subsequent demotion. He later patrolled Jamanakai Village aboard the Sky Shark while looking for Nya but failed to find her, enraging Nadakhan. Doubloon later participated in the battle in the lighthouse, engaging Jay and Nya in battle on the roof before being assisted by Dogshank. In his pursuit of Jay and Nya, he was defeated by Echo Zane.
Doubloon tried to get Nya into her dress but later found her Tiger Widow venom dart.
Doubloon participated in Nadakhan and Nya's wedding and watched in horror as Clancee was banished by Nadakhan. After Nadakhan confirmed Clancee's accusations that he was only in it for himself, Doubloon was banished to another realm alongside Monkey Wretch.
Doubloon was eventually rescued from his realm by Clouse, through the use of his magic, now restored by the Island of Darkness. Reunited with his similarly-retrieved fellow Sky Pirates, Doubloon expressed gratitude, but unwilling to serve another besides Nadakhan, who was still trapped in the Teapot of Tyrahn and now lost at sea, Doubloon attempted to leave Clouse's service, until the sorcerer threatened to banish him and the others back to their realms. With their freedom threatened, Doubloon had no choice but to obey and was thus set to work kidnapping several fishermen on the Endless Sea under the cover of storms, bringing them to the Dark Island to be used as a workforce in the Dark Matter mines.
With the mysterious kidnappings catching the attention of Misako and Ronin, the two sailed towards the Island of Darkness, and on the return trip to report their findings, were ambushed by Doubloon and the Sky Pirates under the cover of a storm. Doubloon, engaging in personal combat with Ronin, gained the advantage when a massive wave swept the mercenary off-board, allowing the Sky Pirates to seize Misako, the ship's loot, and abandon the wrecked vessel to its fate.
Arriving back on the Island of Darkness to celebrate another successful raid, Doubloon, Flintlocke, and a few other pirates succeeded in detaining another kidnapped fisherman. However, he was eavesdropped on by a hidden Jay and Nya, resulting in the two ambushing the pirates, catching them off-guard. Despite Doubloon's best efforts, he and the others were swiftly taken out by a combined blast of electrocuted water by the couple, knocking them out.
Before he and the others could be interrogated, however, Ronin arrived just in time to be attacked by an aggressive Leviathan. Taking advantage of the chaos, Doubloon and the rest of the group fled further into the Island of Darkness.
Regrouping at the mines at Digger's Deep, Doubloon witnessed a Dark Matter-enraged Lloyd break-in, before being assisted by Cole and Zane. Regrouping with his fellow Sky Pirates, Doubloon attempted to detain the three only to receive unexpected opposition from Jay, Nya, Ronin, and the Titanium Ninja Tumbler and Ultra Stealth Raider, now commandeered by the intruders and cleansed of Dark Matter. Unable to withstand the assault, Doubloon was called into retreat by Flintlocke to continue assisting Clouse in breaking the Temple of Light's defenses with the Dark Matter trove they'd dug up.
Having succeeded in corrupting the Temple of Light with Dark Matter, Clouse ordered Doubloon to defend the area with help from his fellow Sky Pirates and a summoned army of Shadows. Despite his best efforts, Doubloon was unable to stop Master Wu from using the Golden Mech to defeat Clouse and purge the Dark Matter. Defeated and rounded up, Doubloon was sent back to Kryptarium for his crimes once again.
The Tall Tale of Doubloon (non-canon)
Originally a human "two-faced thief", Doubloon was incredibly talkative and crafty. After learning Spinjitzu, he would go on to rob the Ninjago Museum of History, only to later end up in Kryptarium Prison. However, by distracting the guards with a recording of his own voice, he was able to escape through a hole in the ground and was guided to Stiix by a passing Chokun. Encountering Flintlocke and Clancee, he decided to try to steal their captain's gold and lied, claiming to simply be looking for office work. Aboard the Misfortune's Keep, he attempted to steal Nadakhan's gold, only for Monkey Wretch, disguised as a statue, to expose him. Nadakhan, confronting him, was impressed by his skills and decided to grant his wish to still become part of the crew, making Doubloon literally two-faced and cementing his induction into the Sky Pirates, where he would eventually become the Gunner.
Once a "two-faced thief", Doubloon's facial expressions are now on a pair of masks, so he can only look happy or sad. Doubloon never talks, but he is an effective fighter and now a valued member of Nadakhan's crew.
Personality and traits
Originally a two-faced, talkative thief, Doubloon held a selfish disregard for others, constantly stealing. He was also incredibly crafty, being able to escape from Kryptarium Prison with ease and also rather ungrateful, not hesitating to insult Chokun after being given directions by the latter, and was rather self-centered.
However, following his transformation, he evidently became more humble and was easily the most silent and stoic member of the entire Sky Pirate crew. Doubloon, unlike his fellow Sky Pirates, notably had kept a more reserved manner throughout his entire appearance in the show, ironically enough. Doubloon also briefly showed a more sadistic side, blatantly relishing Jay's fear when told not to pull one of the switches in the lighthouse, which in reality would reveal a trap door.
However, despite being the most reserved of the Sky Pirates, Doubloon eventually gave into fear upon witnessing his fellow Sky Pirate and friend Clancee be banished by Nadakhan. In his only known moment of true fear, Doubloon was only able to tremble as he and Monkey Wretch suffered the same fate.
- His name probably refers to his ability to turn his face around for a happy face, being a pun on the word "double" and the nautical term for a golden coin "doubloon," referencing him as a thief.
- According to The Book of Spinjitzu, Doubloon somehow studied Spinjitzu long before he became a thief. This makes him the first non-main character since Misako to have learned Spinjitzu.
- Though "The Tall Tale of Doubloon" is non-canon, The Book of Spinjitzu confirms his appearance from it is canon.
- In Dark Island Trilogy, Part 3, Doubloon is depicted with General Kozu's face instead of his regular one, as was done in the previous two installments.
- On his minifigure, the faces are two upside-down versions of one another except on the happy-looking one, there is an extra line, for his mouth.
- He is the only character incapable of making any sound from his mouth (Fangdam and Snappa at least hiss).
- He was shown speaking in the Dark Island Trilogy, but this was an error, as the speech bubble was meant to be coming from Flintlocke.
- In the show he has black hands, but in the sets they're brown like the other pirates.
The images on Doubloon need to be organized.
