You may be looking for ghosts.
P.I.X.A.L. has detected over five hundred ghosts aboard this walking fortress, and the number is climbing.”

The Ghost Warriors were a large army of spirits that were once condemned to the Cursed Realm. In the years following the realm's creation, many people were banished to the Cursed Realm, where their bodies decayed while their spirits were imprisoned within for the rest of eternity.

At the end of the Second Serpentine War, one Ghost Warrior, Morro, escaped the Cursed Realm and claimed the Allied Armor of Azure, which he used to free several spirits and bring them into Ninjago. As Morro fought the ninja, he was aided by Soul Archer, Bansha, and Ghoultar in his quest to claim the Realm Crystal and free the physical manifestation of the Cursed Realm, the Preeminent. Morro would eventually obtain the Realm Crystal, releasing an army of Ghost Warriors into Stiix, which led to a great battle in the city. Soon enough, the Preeminent was released into Ninjago, with Ghost Warriors continuously coming out of it.

When the citizens of Stiix boarded the ferry in an attempt to escape, the Ghost Warriors constructed a walking mechanism for The Preeminent, allowing her to walk into the Endless Sea with her legion of spirits nearby. When Nya unlocked her True Potential and drowned The Preeminent, the Cursed Realm was destroyed and all those inside it were killed, including the Ghost Warriors who met their true fates in the Departed Realm.


Prior to the series

Following the birth of the Cursed Realm, several souls would proceed to arrive at the realm following their death, with only the most wicked and vile souls arriving, except for those who were banished using a spell. Being transformed into Ghosts. As a result, the Ghost Warriors fell under the command of the Preeminent, the sentient consciousness of the Cursed Realm, and would remain imprisoned for countless years as an atonement for their crimes in life. Later, the Ghost Warriors began preparation for their master's plan to curse the Sixteen Realms, with their general (Morro) and Ghost Masters (Soul Archer, Bansha, Ghoultar, and Wrayth) being assigned in particular to carry out the Preeminent's plans.

Stiix and Stones

While battling the ninja over the Scroll of Airjitzu, their commander Morro summoned several of the Ghost Warriors to support him. Initially having the upper hand, the Ghosts were eventually destroyed after Ronin gave the ninja permission to use his Aeroblades, which, being made of Deepstone, were able to interact with and destroy them, their souls being dragged back into the Cursed Realm.

Curseworld, Part I

Summoned by Morro and his Weapon Masters using the Realm Crystal, the Ghost Warriors were tasked with taking over Stiix and defending it from any intruders. Making short work of the citizens by imprisoning, the Ghost Warriors ran rampant, exposing themselves to the luxuries of the living they had missed out on in the Cursed Realm, such as food, music, etc. However, being confronted by the ninja, the Ghost Warriors fought them, bolstered by the knowledge of their practical immortality, with the Realm Crystal bringing them back to Ninjago every time they died. Though initially unable to stop Lloyd's advance on the Realm Crystal, they nevertheless welcomed the arrival of the Preeminent into Ninjago.

Curseworld, Part II

With countless more Ghost Warriors arriving to help in the battle, the spectral entities assisted their master, helping feed her more souls to devour. When the ninja attempted to drop the Preeminent into the Endless Sea by destroying Stiix's foundations, the Ghost Warriors worked to help their master possess the entire city, allowing her enough immunity from the water to pursue several fleeing citizens out into the ocean, hoping to devour their souls and become even stronger. Attempting to fight off the ninjas' attempts to thwart their master, the Ghost Warriors failed, with Nya unlocking her True Potential and summoning a massive tidal wave killing the Preeminent and all of the ghosts. With the Cursed Realm destroyed, they were all sent to the Departed Realm following their deaths.

Known Members




Ghost Warriors are constantly intangible, able to pass through solid objects without effort. Because of this, they have to concentrate to grasp/move things or people. Ghost Warriors also have the ability to make themselves invisible, however, they can still be seen with thermal vision.

Ghost Warriors can possess objects, mechanisms, materials, and people. This includes a variety of sand, to vehicles, to keyholes. Skreemers can possess people by attaching themselves to the head of the person. Likewise, they can send others to the Cursed Realm if an open gateway is present through physical contact alone.

Most ghosts can change between having legs and having a ghost tail. The majority appears to prefer traveling through levitation, using their ghost tails, as opposed to walking. Morro has never been seen using a ghost tail but has floated.

Some Ghost Warriors (notably Morro, Soul Archer, Bansha, and Ghoultar) have a variety of weapons that they can summon. These usual melee weapons, except for Soul Archer:

  • Serrated Dagger - Bansha, Morro (two)
  • Bow and Arrow - Soul Archer
  • Double-Blade Serrated Dagger - Bansha
  • Serrated Scythe - Ghoultar
  • Serrated Flail - Wrayth


  • As seen in "Curseworld, Part I," the Ghost Warriors have a large appetite. This is also demonstrated by the Skreemers who are always carying a type of food in the sets.
  • All of the Ghost Warriors other than Morro and Ghoultar have fangs.
    • It's unknown if Soul Archer, Bansha, and Wrayth have fangs because they never have been shown without their head cover. Although the heads of the Ghost Masters are shown in the sets, none of their mouths are seen open, as Soul Archer has a mustache, Bansha's mouth is closed, and Wrayth's is printed with more covering.
  • The Ghost Warriors are similar to the Serpentine in many ways.
    • The Ghost Warriors tie with the Serpentine for the most characters/antagonists released as Minifigures. Coincidentally, both factions have a total of seventeen different Minifigures, though the Serpentine's are more distinguishable.
    • Both factions are arguably one of the few villainous factions to be better off than they were during their initial debut in the series.
    • The higher-ranking members of both factions have tails instead of legs (except for Morro and the Preeminent in the Ghost Warriors' case).
  • The Ghost Warriors are the second antagonist faction not to eventually become allies with the ninja, the first being the Anacondrai Cultists.
  • In "Curseworld, Part II," P.I.X.A.L. calculates there to be at least over 500 Ghost Warriors and counting. This gives a bare minimum for the number of ghosts at the time.
  • The Ghost Warriors, such as Morro and Soul Archer, have a different shade of green compared to normal ghosts.
  • According to Simon Lucas, the ghosts were some of the most difficult minifigures to produce, because the see-through legs were not always detected by the lasers used to locate pieces to move them through the production line.[1]
  • When asked why so many of the Ghost Ninja looked the same in the sets, Simon Lucas responded, ""Well that's ghosts, they can look the same."[2]
