I am so pleased to be seeing you at this now. We are opening our new exhibit. Come. You see, come. Might I be presenting the Hall of Villainy.
Dr. Saunders to the ninja, Wu, and Misako

The Hall of Villainy is a new exhibit in the Ninjago Museum of History. The exhibit houses life-sized statues of the major villains fought by the ninja over the years. Some of the villains include infamous adversaries such as Samukai, Pythor, Kozu, Cryptor, Chen, and Morro. The exhibit also features objects associated with the villains, such as the Yin Blade.

Each villain holds a customized weapon with a black hilt and a translucent green crystal at the bottom called Departed Blades. Samukai holds a Double-Bladed Bone Axe replica, Pythor holds an Anacondrai Staff replica, Kozu holds an Elemental Blade replica, Cryptor holds a replica of Cole's Techno Blade, Chen holds a Jadeblade replica, and Morro holds a replica of the Sword of Sanctuary. Each weapon is associated with the villain in some way—for instance, the ninja wielded Elemental Blades while fighting Kozu and the Stone Army. 


Day of the Departed

Dr. Saunders oversaw the creation of the Hall of Villainy. On the Day of the Departed, the ninja stopped by the museum and were introduced to the exhibit by Dr. Saunders. The ninja, namely Kai and Jay, were made very uneasy by the exhibit and the statues inside. As Cole wanders further into the exhibit, he finds a painting of Yang and an artifact called the Yin Blade, which can cut open the fabric of reality. Saunders mentions that there are more statues to be added to the exhibit, including ones of The Overlord and the Golden Master. As Cole receives a message from Yang, the ninja, Wu, and Misako leave the museum, setting off to commemorate their ancestors. Cole realizes he's fading away and goes to the Temple of Airjitzu to settle his debt. 

At the temple, Yang tricks Cole into opening the Departed Realm, allowing the spirits of the ninja's old enemies to escape into Ninjago. The spirits travel through the city, heading into the museum and possessing the statues in the Hall of Villainy. Samukai, Kozu, Cryptor, Chen, and Morro are resurrected, after which they confront one another. The five villains go to the painting of Yang, which he uses to send them a message, explaining that though he brought them to life they can only remain in Ninjago for the duration of the lunar eclipse unless they kill the person that killed them. While explaining this, Pythor arrives in the museum, and he steals the Anacondrai Staff that his statue is holding. 

Pythor joins the other villains as they speak with Yang, who tells them to choose an adversary to go after. Chen says he'll go after Kai and Nya, Pythor says he'll go after Lloyd, Cryptor says he'll go after Zane, Morro says he'll go after Wu, Kozu says he'll go after Dareth, and Samukai is left with going after Jay. After making their decisions, the villains go to the Hall of Sidekicks, where they gather reinforcements for their upcoming missions. 

The villains set off to defeat their respective adversaries. Samukai, Kozu, Cryptor, and Chen were all defeated a second time, with their spirits being sent back to the Departed Realm while their statues were destroyed. Morro, on the other hand, warned Wu of the coming attacks, which allowed him to reunite with the ninja and head to Yang's Temple. Morro returned to the museum, placing the statue in the position it was originally in before peacefully returning to the Departed Realm. 

The Hands of Time

The ninja are shown rebuilding the Hall of Villainy after the Day of the Departed.


  • According to Dr. Saunders, statues of the Overlord and the Golden Master would also go on display at some point, as they were yet to be unpacked and were still in the storage room.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, the statues were meant to be made out of thick plastic or ceramic.[1]
