Hot Air Baboons are creatures who live in Ninjago's sky. Their name is a play-on of "Hot Air Balloons".
Naturally light headed, Hot Air Baboons are the only Ninjago monkeys that can fly. They have special helium pouches in their mouth. This gives them great big smiles but messy hair. If you're willing to comb their hair, they will happily let you ride on their hairy back.[link unavailable]
