“Karlof used to be aeronautical engineer back in Metalonia. Work on Roto Jets.”
— Karlof to Cole, "Spellbound"

Karlof is the current Elemental Master of Metal, former aeronautical engineer in Metalonia and a contestant in the Tournament of Elements. A brutish and often arrogant man, Karlof thought the Tournament would be entertaining, but quickly started a rivalry with Kai, who ultimately defeated him during the first round. He was then forced to work in Chen's noodle factory, where he befriended Cole. Together, they built a Roto Jet and successfully escaped from the factory. Karlof and the other Elemental Masters sabotaged Chen's plans to hold all the elements for himself but failed to prevent his followers from becoming fake Anacondrai.

The Elemental Masters united and faced the Anacondrai warriors at the Corridor of Elders. Despite their best efforts, they were overpowered by their adversaries until Garmadon sacrificed himself to curse Chen's army.

Months later, Nadakhan imprisoned Karlof and the other Elemental Masters in the Djinn Blade. After Jay made his final wish, recent events were erased and he was freed. Not long after, Karlof was captured by the Vermillion and forced to help construct a machine for their masters. Eventually, he was freed from captivity by the ninja.

After the supposed demise of the original ninja, Lloyd recruited Karlof and many others into a new team in a bid to resist Lord Garmadon's oppressive rule.



Karlof was born as a descendant of the Elemental Master of Metal. While refining his craft in his homeland of Metalonia, he worked as an aeronautical engineer responsible for constructing Roto Jets. Eventually, he received an invitation to Master Chen's Tournament of Elements.

Tournament of Elements

The Invitation

Karlof was among the people with elemental powers aboard the ship that brought them to Chen's Island. While on the ship, the ninja passed him training with a punching bag. He was later seen trying to fight a reluctant Skylor until Kai came over, and a fight between him and Karlof ensued. Just as Karlof was about to finish the fight, Clouse called him off.

Only One Can Remain

When the ship arrived at Chen's Island, Karlof pushed Kai out of the way, almost starting another fight. The Master of Metal was later present as Chen explained how the Tournament works. When he asked what he would win, Chen replied that if he moves on to where he wins every match, he will get the best fortunes. Karlof was then seen fighting Kai for a Jadeblade, and he came out victorious. Just as he was about to go put it on the statue, Kai unscrewed the metal fist holding the Jadeblade and stole the weapon. Incandescent Karlof furiously proclaimed that Kai cheated as the Red Ninja fled with the Jadeblade.

Karlof captured by the Anacondrai cultists.

Because of this, Karlof admitted that he didn't want to come to the Tournament. Chen said that he was "sad" to hear that the brute did not enjoy his stay before dropping him through a trapdoor, immediately making Kai feel somewhat guilty for his actions. Karlof was later brought to an Anacondrai warrior ceremony, as Chen explained that "only one could remain." Chen then drained Karlof of his element as Zugu and Eyezor held him there, causing Karlof to be weakened for a second only to find his powers stolen and collapse.

Karlof's element is stolen.

Karlof was distraught at losing his powers before Chen stated he would let him go as the former meekly asked "Really?" However, he was stunned when Chen instructed his followers to take him to the factory, and the cultists dragged a screaming Karlof away into the darkness.


When recruiting Neuro to help, the latter refused until Lloyd told him to read his mind and the latter saw Karlof having his element taken away and decided to join after he saw Chen's true plans.

Ninja Roll

After being sent to work in the noodle factory, Karlof is shown to have given up hope of escape and refuses Cole's proposal for help, instead of trying to get him to work and tells him to "make noodles, not trouble." When Cole catches sight of Zane in a prison cell, Karlof pretends to be tying his shoe to momentarily distract Zugu and prevent Cole from being caught.

Spy for a Spy

Surprised that Cole is in a good mood because of finding Zane, Karlof begins to wish he had friends or allies that would help him. As Cole explained he would try to free Zane and escape the first chance he got, Karlof had him promise to not forget him as Cole hurriedly made that promise. When Cole made his move, everyone cheered him on.

Later, upon hearing that the other Masters would pay for his actions and remembering his promise to Karlof, Cole decided to stay behind and free the captives while Zane leaves the Island. Despite being imprisoned for so long, Zane chose to stay as well to help the others escape from Chen's grasp.


Karlof was working in the factory when Zugu decided to put it on lockdown to search for Cole. When all the guards were gone, Karlof signaled to the Master of Earth and Ice to come out of hiding from a barrel. He and the other imprisoned fighters then gathered around Zane who proceeded to explain his plan to escaped through the sewer pipes. Karlof immediately objection to the plan due to how unsavory the smell of the sewer would be but they were interrupted by the arrival of Dareth. Karlof reminded Cole that the pipes would only hold their combined weight and thus the plan wouldn't work due to the Brown Ninja's arrival.

While the masters were brainstorming plans, Karlof brought up that he used to work on Roto Jets, but his idea was quickly dismissed by Cole as they were without a jet and were also underground. Zane, however, approved the idea and sent everyone to work finding suitable parts to build one while he and Karlof drew up the blueprints.

The Forgotten Element

Karlof began working on the Roto Jet, disguising it as a noodle machine to avoid suspicion. Soon, more eliminated Masters join them, among them being Jay, who reunited with Cole and Zane. After Cole told Jay of the plan, the Master of Lighting dropped his previous attitude of being positive to question the sense of the plan as Karlof asked what happened to positive thinking. Karlof continued working, explaining to an impatient Zugu, who needed noodles for the ceremony, that it still needed to be fixed as the cultist got annoyed and pushed him aside only to find it wasn't a noodle machine, but a jet.

Karlof laughed stating that was needed to be fixed before having Cole operate it and blast the guards and escape the factory. Karlof rode on top of the jet to fix any malfunctions while Cole reiterated that was why people don't build jets underground. Karlof helped the Masters push the jet through the tunnels as they went on to save Nya and Garmadon from Clouse's Anacondrai serpent. They fired a barrage of missiles to cause debris to fall on top of the beast killing it once and for all. Cole soon asked Karlof why the jet wasn't off the ground as Karlof stated some things needed to be fixed and told Cole that he would get it in the air. Karlof noted it would be possible because of positive thinking, which was joined along with the other Masters.

Very soon, Karlof made good on his word as the jet manage to fly into Chen's ceremony hall, disrupting the spell. The Elemental Masters fought against Chen's followers long enough for Kai to destroy the Staff, returning the Elemental Powers to their respective masters. With his power restored, Karlof stated the Anacondrai warriors had no chance as he coated himself in metal to fight them. The Masters defeated the Anacondrai warriors but Chen and select followers manage to escape. With Chen in hiding, the Masters seize control of the island while awaiting the villain's next move. Amid the celebration, Karlof laughed along with the other Masters as Zane turns on his funny switch.

The Day of the Dragon

Karlof worked on repairing the ElectroMech when he and the ninja learned from Griffin Turner of Chen using Skylor to complete the spell from. He told an amazed Griffin Turner he wished he had his own dragon after seeing Lloyd fly off on his dragon.

Karlof later rounded up Zugu and Eyezor while asking Cole if there was still no sign of Chen and he was told the villain escaped. Cole then asked if Zane returned but he stated he hadn't seen him before he witnessed Garmadon transform into Anacondrai as the latter noted anyone with a tattoo would be transformed as well which meant the same for the cultists.

Karlof took part in fighting the Anacondrai but the Elemental Masters were gradually overwhelmed forcing them to retreat to the palace. The Master would witness Chen and his army leaving the island to conquer Ninjago while leaving them stranded.

Karlof later witnesses Zane arriving on a Titanium Dragon noting he unleashed a Dragon as well. He listened as Zane stated his fears are what prevented him from summoning the Dragon as Kai and Skylor arrive on an Elemental Fire Dragon supporting Zane's theory.

His wish of summoning a Dragon came true after he faced his fear in hopes to defeat the Anacondrai warriors, making him very happy. He then left with his allies to go after Chen's army.

The Greatest Fear of All

He returned to Ninjago City with his allies only to find that Chen had yet to invade and at Lloyd's command they left to protect the people.

The Elemental Masters prepare to confront Chen.

Very soon under Shade's orders, he went after a noodle truck: like everyone else, he realized it was a trick by Chen and ended up losing his dragon out of fear being left stranded after seeing the truck was empty. This allowed the Anacondrai warriors to invade without a problem.

The Corridor of Elders

Karlof eventually received a message from Neuro and regrouped with the other Masters at the Samurai X Cave being one of the last to arrive with Kai, Jay, Chamille, and Mr. Pale. There, Wu explained that their only chance to stop the Anacondrai warriors would be to face them at the Corridor of Elders.

Fighting the Anacondrai imposters.

Karlof fought alongside the ninja in the ensuing battle and watched as the spirits of the Anacondrai generals banished the Anacondrai warriors to the Cursed Realm.

Afterward, he was with his allies as Cole thanked the Masters for their help after they achieved victory, the Master of Metal hugged Jay and Kai as he noted that it was better than fighting against them.

Soon they parted ways but not without promising future aid when needed. He later led the clean up in the Corridor.


Prior to Operation Land Ho!

At some point, Nadakhan imprisoned Karlof in the Djinn Blade with the other Elemental Masters.

While Jay was attempting to rescue his friends from the Djinn Blade, Karlof floated by, being left unnoticed by his fellow Elemental Master.

The Hands of Time

Prior to Pause and Effect

At some point after the conflict with the ghosts, Karlof retired from being a fighter before he was captured by the Vermillion and the Hands of Time. He was cuffed in Vengestone to help build the Iron Doom.

Pause and Effect

He is in the workshop building. When Jay and Cole break-in, he quickly hugs Jay happy to see him as the latter struggles to free himself of Karlof's tight grip. He is questioned by Cole as to why he was there and he explained how ended up being captured and forced to work for the Hands of Time. He continued his work until he was freed by the ninja.

Way of the Departed (non-canon)



Karlof arrives and helps Lloyd, Nya, Misako, Dareth, and P.I.X.A.L. from the Sons of Garmadon. He sends Mr. E flying back in a single punch, saving Dareth.

Karlof even takes down Killow, who is bigger than him. He then escapes with the other members of The Resistance with the help of Skylor.

Iron & Stone

When the Resistance made it back to the garbage depot Nya said they could use the metal to build armor and machines, to which he gets excited about.

Radio Free Ninjago

The Resistance watched as Lloyd lead Dareth in a fight against Karlof. When Karlof won, Lloyd told them to make a plan.

He later watches Lloyd's speech.

How to Build a Dragon

The Resistance celebrated Lloyd's speech. They started planning on who else they could recruit to help them.

The Gilded Path

When the Sons of Garmadon attacked the Garbage Depot, the Resistance fought them. They were eventually taken to Kryptarium Prison.

Two Lies, One Truth

Inside his cell, Karlof passed the time by doing push-ups.

Green Destiny

Karlof breaks free with Ronin and Griffin Turner.

Karlof is in his cell before he overhears the guards saying that the ninja have returned. Karlof is happy to learn this, and along with Griffin and Ronin, he broke them out of their cells. Karlof took part in the escape of the prison.

Karlof later made it back to Ninjago where he joined in defeating the Colossus with the chains along with the ninja and their other allies.

March of the Oni


At the end of the episode, Karlof celebrated with the ninja in the Monastery of Spinjitzu.

In the Tournament app (non-canon)

Karlof is a playable character in LEGO Ninjago: Tournament. He can be purchased for 1,000,000 studs. His special power is Boost, making him completely metal. He is also an unplayable boss and has an extra power of creating tremors in the ground, which can deal with at least two hearts of damage.

Weapons and Abilities


  • Metal gauntlets: Karlof is armed with a pair of metal gauntlets that greatly enhance his punching power. They can even take down an Oni powered Mr. E.


  • Metal: Karlof had the power to turn his body into hard metal before losing it to Master Chen. He later regains his stolen power when Kai destroyed Chen's staff.
  • Durability: Even without this power, he appears extremely durable—he is completely unharmed when Kai throws Fire straight at him. He has fought Kai, a skilled fighter and ninja twice emerging victorious from both conflicts without so much as a scratch on his person.
  • Stamina: He is also very enduring, being able to fight head-on for an extended time period without tiring, displaying his extreme stamina.
  • Mechanical skills: He seems to have a background in mechanics and engineering, which is seen in his ability to craft a Roto Jet out of spare noodle factory parts. This showcases his advanced intellect despite his broken speech patterns and seemingly ignorant personality. description

Karlof used to be an aeronautical engineer in a region called Metalonia. Now he is smashing opponents with his metal fists. He can turn his body into metal at will, making it very hard for anyone to land a damaging blow. Kai and Karlof develop an instant dislike and as things heat up, it is clear that here Kai has finally found a truly worthy adversary.[1]
