“And also don't forget, if your dad attacks the city again today, just be sure to duck and cover until the Secret Ninjas give the all clear.”
— Koko, talking with Lloyd about his father

Koko (short for Misako[1]) is Lloyd's mother, Lord Garmadon's ex-wife, and Master Wu's ex-sister-in-law. She is also the famous Ninja known as the Lady Iron Dragon.


Early life

Koko met Garmadon in a war under the identity of the Lady Iron Dragon. When Lloyd was born, she left Garmadon and went to Ninjago in order to raise Lloyd on her own due to an argument they had. Koko raised him in Ninjago his entire life and made sacrifices to help him fit in around their surroundings. She did her best to convince Lloyd to not be ashamed of who his father was.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Koko is first seen when she greets her son as she gets ready to leave for work. She tells Lloyd to go to school since she doesn't want him to miss out on the best years of his life, reminds him what to do in case his father attacks the city, and wishes him a happy birthday.

At night, she becomes worried when she can't locate Lloyd and asked eighteen people if they knew anything. While talking with someone, who is also a mother who banned Lloyd from playing with her child, Lloyd shows up and apologizes to his mother for scaring her. Koko then presents Lloyd with his favorite food, dumplings, for dinner but Lloyd, who is still sad over his argument with Garmadon, gently declines and goes to bed before Koko shows him the cake she got him.

She later shows up at Garmadon's lair while he and the generals celebrate their victory. Garmadon demands Koko tells him why she turned their son against him and reveals to Koko that Lloyd is the Green Ninja. After a short argument and a poor attempt from Garmadon to flirt with her, Koko sadly tells him that she always tried to convince Lloyd to not be embarrassed by who his father was but now she regrets it before walking away.

When Garmadon and the Ninja arrive at his childhood home, Garmadon tells Lloyd about how he met and fell in love with his mother who was a warrior called The Lady Iron Dragon and how they fought on wars, got married and had Lloyd. The family was happy until Koko realized that she didn't want her son to follow on Garmadon's footsteps so she left him and moved with an infant Lloyd to Ninjago.

Koko is later seen among the citizens of Ninjago when Lloyd takes off his hood and reveals to everyone he is the Green Ninja. She tries to stop him from approaching Meowthra but is stopped by Master Wu. After Meowthra spits out Garmadon Koko rushes to Lloyd and the two embrace while Lloyd apologizes to his mother for not appreciating her enough.

Master Wu reveals that sometime after that Koko and Nya opened a martial arts school where they and Lloyd teach Garmadon's former generals. She is last seen with Lloyd and Garmadon having dinner at a restaurant, having reconciled with her estranged husband.


Misako seems to be very happy and enthusiastic, trying her best to help her son blend in with the other students at his school, despite the fact that Lloyd is Lord Garmadon's son. She is a kind-hearted mother who always looks out for her son. When Garmadon belittles Lloyd and makes him go rogue through Ninjago City, Koko confronts Garmadon at his volcano base.

Official Description

Lloyd's devoted mom, Koko is smart, strong, and independent. As Lord Garmadon's ex-wife, she is not afraid to stand up to him – even though he's twice her size and has twice as many arms. Koko knew "Garm" when he was a young warlord eager to conquer the world. Back then, she thought that was just a figure of speech. Turns out, he meant it. So she took young Lloyd away in the hope of giving him a normal life. But that didn't work out quite the way she planned.[2]

Weapons and Abilities

As Lady Iron Dragon, Koko dons armor and wields swords. She is able to ward off an enemy attack without looking. In combat with Garmadon, Koko seems to defeat him with ease.


Koko has orange hair, wears orange lipstick, and is mostly clad in clothing similar to Claire's. She is also shown to wear brown pants, rather than the blue one Claire has.

As the Lady Iron Dragon, She wears a black battle armor, wears a crown on her head, and has a unique armor that has a quiver attach to it.
