Our father used to tell us stories about the dragons, that they were mystical creatures that belong to both worlds and ferried between them.”

Dragons are mystical creatures that originated from the Realm of Oni and Dragons, the first realm in existence. They were at war with the Oni.

The legendary beings are in tune with elemental properties, due to many being Masters of the four Elements of Creation. They are said to be connected to both Ninjago and the Underworld, enabling them to travel between the two worlds at will.

Master Wu once tasked four dragons (Fire, Lightning, Ice and Earth) linked to each of the four Elements to guard the four Golden Weapons, and they were generally not vicious unless the Weapons are threatened.

History

The dragons seen in Ninjago were descended from the dragons of the Realm of Oni and Dragons. The Firstbourne had all of the Elemental Powers of her spawn, and her offsprings constantly waged war against their arch enemies, the Oni (who were beings of Destruction, the polar opposite of Creation). When a child was born, the two sides fought over him until he left the realm. The child also struck a friendship with the Firstbourne when he tried to stop the war.

Later, that same child (the First Spinjitzu Master) would grow up to empower a group of humans with the powers he gained from the dragons, the Elemental Masters. Together, the Elemental Masters and the First Spinjitzu Master would go on to protect Ninjago from the forces of evil that encroached on it.

Master Wu placed each dragon to guard one of the Golden Weapons, each in tune with its elemental properties. The dragons guarded the Weapons for many years until an increase in Skulkin activity led Master Wu to believe that the weapons had to be retrieved before they could fall into Lord Garmadon's hands.

The four ninja had to avoid each of the dragons as they recovered the four Golden Weapons. When the Weapons were stolen by Garmadon, they discovered that the dragons only wanted to protect the Weapons, and would gladly aid the ninja in their quest. Afterward, each ninja kept the dragon matching their elemental properties as a pet, in addition to using them for transportation. This allowed the dragons to continue guarding the Weapons, as the four ninja wielded them in defense of Ninjago. As Jay decided to visit his parents, all four dragons were molting and had to leave the ninja. The ninja had to go on the journey to Ed & Edna's Scrap N Junk on foot.

During their time in the Spirit Coves, the dragons morphed into the Ultra Dragon. It appeared during the fight against the Great Devourer and nearly defeated the creature. It briefly served as Lloyd's personal transportation until he mastered the Golden Dragon, most notably in "Ninjaball Run."

When the Overlord possessed Garmadon's body in "Return of the Overlord," he appeared as a humanoid dragon. As his power continued to increase in the following episode, he mutated into a full dragon. At this time, the ninja were taken to Ninjago City by the Ultra Dragon to defeat him.

During "Lessons for a Master," Firstbourne gave the stranded ninja dragons that correspond to their Elemental Powers. They use them to get out of the Realm of Oni and Dragons and into Ninjago. They also use the Dragons during "Green Destiny," where the dragons save the ninja's allies from the Sons of Garmadon and used them against the Colossus.

Behind the scenes

  • Michael Knap has explained that most LEGO dragons these days are from Ninjago because it helps to make dragons a more distinct part of the theme.[1]

Trivia

  • Dragons do not have the power of Creation itself but do through their being types of dragons that correspond to the four elements of Creation.[2]
  • The only elements they possess are the four elements of Creation and Wind.[3] It is unknown what the origins of the other elements are, or why the only other element they control is Wind.
  • All the seasons in the series have either a dragon, an Elemental Dragon, or a Dragon Mech appear.
  • If Nya had a dragon as the original four ninja did, it may have been named "Flow."[4]
  • In Ninjago and the Island of the Keepers, there are also wild dragons without a specific element, such as Shintaran Ridgebacks, Grief-Bringer, or Jungle Dragons.
  • Several dragon skulls resembling those of the original four dragons, Ultra Dragon, and Golden Dragon are seen in the Oni land, but no dragons with these head shapes are seen alive in Hunted or any subsequent episodes.
  • It is possible that the First Spinjitzu Master based Spinjitzu on the spinning movement used by dragons to travel between realms.[5]
  • It is unlikely that dragons can travel to all realms.[6]
  • Although it was not shown in the show until Season 8 that the dragons came from another realm, Cole suggests this already in the pilot episodes with his line: "Dragons aren't from this world, Zane."
