|“Call me . . . the Purple Ninja!”|
|— Lil' Nelson to the Ninja|
Lil' Nelson is the honorary Purple Ninja of the Ninja team. He broke both of his legs while rigorously training to be a Ninja.
Dareth arranged for the Ninja to visit Lil' Nelson and make him an honorary ninja for a day. The Ninja stopped by on their way to stop Clouse, remembering their lesson to "not put off what can be done today." However, due to Kai's addiction to his fans, he alerted them about their location and ended up being surrounded.
A fellow fan himself, Lil' Nelson dons a hand-made gi, becomes the Purple Ninja, and helps the Ninja by blocking the fans so they can escape to the roof. Lloyd expresses his gratefulness in his assistance, but Lil' Nelson says that he is grateful his wish was granted, thanks to Lloyd and the Ninja.
- 55. "Infamous"
- In earlier drafts, Nelson was going to appear in Day of the Departed, but according to Tommy Andreasen his part was taken out. Lil' Nelson even appeared in the Rock Roader set despite not appearing in the special.
- In the Rock Roader set, he had an actual Spinner game card. The card was Kendo Cole.
- He is the third honorary Ninja to appear in the series, after Dareth and Skylor.
- Despite being restrained to a wheelchair due to his injury, he has developed impressive ninja-like techniques in moving around that impress even the Ninja.
