The Lightning Dragon (nicknamed Wisp by Jay) was the guardian Dragon of the Nunchucks of Lightning, and Jay's pet.

After merging with the three other dragons to form the Ultra Dragon, Wisp was eventually caught and killed by the Dragon Hunters to make Iron Baron's throne.

History

The Lightning Dragon was placed in the Floating Ruins by Master Wu to guard the Nunchucks of Lightning, where it stayed for around a decade.[1]

King of Shadows

When the Ninja found the Nunchucks of Lightning on top of the Floating Ruins, the Lightning Dragon appeared. The Ninja escaped and the Lightning Dragon did not follow.

Weapons of Destiny

After the Golden Weapons had been taken to the Underworld, Jay confronted the Lightning Dragon and managed to tame it. The Blue Ninja then rode the Lightning Dragon to the Underworld. After the Ninja had reclaimed the Golden Weapons, the Lightning Dragon transported Jay back to Four Weapons.

Rise of the Snakes

At some point, dragon pens were carved into the mountain underneath the Monastery of Spinjitzu and the Lightning Dragon began living there under the care of the Ninja.

When the Ninja learned that Lord Garmadon had apparently returned, Jay mounted the Lightning Dragon and flew it to Jamanakai Village, racing the other Ninja along the way. After the threat had been discovered to be merely Lloyd Garmadon, Jay flew the Lightning Dragon back to the monastery. When the Hypnobrai attacked the village later in the day, Jay once again used the Lightning Dragon as transport there.

Home

After the Ninja had left to destroy Lloyd's Treehouse Fortress, the Ninja returned back to the monastery, only to find it engulfed in flames and find out that the Dragons including the Lightning Dragon  were traped inside, the dragons were saved when Zane ordered Shard to put out the fire.

Snakebit

After the Ninja discovered the Destiny's Bounty in the Sea of Sand, the Lightning Dragon took up residence in some nearby ruins. However, the Lightning Dragon began to molt and left for the Spirit Coves where it merged with the other three dragons to become the Ultra Dragon.

Appearance

The Lightning Dragon looks similar to the Ice Dragon except that it has four legs, it is a darker blue, Jay sits on a saddle-like structure, and its tail is wider and can bend in different directions. The Lightning Dragon is the only dragon to have six limbs in the set.
