  Golden Weapons   Mega Weapon   Golden Armor    
“With Borg's army of Nindroids under his control, the Digital Overlord used the Golden Power to create an invincible armor for his spirit to inhabit.”
Zane, "Legacy"

The Golden Armor, also known as the Armor of the Golden Master,[1] was a suit of armor The Overlord created from the Golden Weapons. After the Nindroid Army retrieved the weapons, they were melted into the armor for The Overlord to wear - making him the Golden Master. He wreaked havoc across Ninjago City while wearing the armor, before being vanquished by Zane.

Sometime after the Golden Master's defeat, Cyrus Borg retrieved the armor and hid it in Borg Tower. Lord Garmadon and Lloyd stumbled upon it during the Oni's return and used it to ward off their dark adversaries. Nya later proposed that Kai melts the armor back into the Golden Weapons, which he did at the Monastery of Spinjitzu.


The Titanium Ninja

After the Nindroid Army returned with the Golden Weapons, they melted them down into the Golden Armor, which the Overlord then wore—truly becoming the Golden Master. The Overlord wore the armor as he terrorized Ninjago City, making him nearly invincible.

When Zane grabbed hold of the ultimate weapon's harnesses, The Overlord froze over and was vanquished. Consequently, the armor shrunk to its original size and was promptly seized by Cyrus Borg. 

The Invitation

After the Overlord was destroyed, Cyrus Borg set up a training course to test the security system guarding the armor. Lloyd Garmadon was the only Ninja who took part in the test. Once he finished it, he had to try and obtain a holographic replica of the Golden Armor. When he failed to obtain it, he asked Cyrus Borg where the real one was. Cyrus Borg simply stated, "Some things are best kept safe."

Between seasons

For some time, the Golden Armor was stored away in the vaults of Borg Tower, along with numerous other artifacts. 

The Fall

During the Oni's occupation of Ninjago City, Lloyd and Lord Garmadon stumbled upon the armor and found that it repelled the Oni, who feared the Golden Power of The First Spinjitzu Master. Lloyd and Garmadon used the armor to push back the Oni and escape the tower, after which it was brought back to Destiny's Bounty.


After arriving at the monastery, Garmadon showed Wu the Golden Armor. Nya explained they can fight the Oni if they reforged the Golden Weapons. Kai successfully made the weapons and handed them out to the respective ninja, but gave the Scythe of Quakes to Nya. When Cole was shown to be alive though, she gave it back to him. Unfortunately, the powers of the Golden Weapons aren't still enough to stop the Oni, so Garmadon and the ninja resorted to creating the Tornado of Creation, combined with the Golden Weapons, to defeat the Oni for good.

The Virtues of Spinjitzu


  • The Oni are afraid of it because it contains the power of Creation, which is their weakness.
  • When Zane held on to the Golden Armor to defeat the Overlord, he drained its power to the point that mere mortals can behold it.[2] This is why in "Endings," Kai can touch it without perishing.
