|“The scrolls gave us powers we have never felt before. It felt as if . . . we have reached our true potential in an instance. It was a wonderful feeling. And a terrible one.”|
|— Master Wu, in Never Trust a Human|
Forbidden Spinjitzu is a dark counterpart of the martial art of Spinjitzu. Ages ago, during the First Age, the First Spinjitzu Master created the scrolls containing the knowledge and power of the forbidden art. A young Wu and Garmadon took the scrolls against their father's wishes, using it to defeat the snake sorceress, Aspheera.
By holding the scroll, the user is instantly granted incredible power, similar to when an Elemental Master accesses their True Potential. Consequently, it also induces aggression and a lust for power, seemingly causing users to become addicted to it via prolonged usage.

- Forbidden Spinjitzu appears much stronger than regular Spinjitzu as shown in "Powerless" and "Never Trust a Human."
