|“There is always hope. Akita's still out there, and my friends are out there. And if I know one thing, it's that Ninja never quit. They never give up. Ever.”|
|— Lloyd to Kataru, "A Fragile Hope"|
Master Lloyd Montgomery Garmadon is the Green Ninja, the current Elemental Master of Energy, and the leader of the Ninja. He is Garmadon and Misako's son, Wu's nephew, and the First Spinjitzu Master's grandson. Once a bratty kid who sought to follow in his father's footsteps, Lloyd changed his ways by helping the Ninja and realizing his destiny was to be the Green Ninja. As the Ninja trained Lloyd, he reunited with his mother Misako, and faced Garmadon and the Overlord, becoming the Golden Ninja.
Garmadon is purified of evil, and the Overlord is defeated—yet he later returns and steals Lloyd's Golden Power. When Zane sacrificed himself to destroy the Overlord, the Ninja separated and Lloyd reconnected them before they found him alive on Chen's Island. Lloyd and the Ninja set out to save Zane by entering the Tournament of Elements. This brought a war between the Elemental Masters and Chen's army, which ended when Lloyd had to banish his father to the Cursed Realm.
Lloyd was later possessed by Morro, who claimed the Realm Crystal and freed the Preeminent. Lloyd escaped Morro's possession and helped battle him, but The Preeminent's destruction destroyed the Cursed Realm, killing his father. Shortly after, Lloyd helped battle the Sky Pirates and their captain, Nadakhan. When Jay made his final wish, recent events were undone and Lloyd's age was reversed. On the Day of the Departed, Lloyd commemorated Garmadon at the Corridor of Elders, where he fought against Pythor. Lloyd would later battle the Time Twins and their Vermillion army. In Wu's absence, Lloyd led the Ninja and became their new master when Wu was lost in time.
Lloyd led the Ninja against the Sons of Garmadon, who sought to resurrect his father, while also being attracted to Harumi—who winds up being the leader of the group. Lord Garmadon is resurrected and nearly kills Lloyd in a dangerous battle that strips Lloyd of his powers. After the Colossus seemingly killed the original Ninja and Wu, Lloyd led The Resistance against his corrupted father and his followers. Eventually, the Ninja returned to Ninjago and helped fight the Sons of Garmadon. In a climactic battle, Lloyd regained his powers and defeated his father, who warned him of coming darkness. When the Oni invaded, Lloyd and Garmadon discover the secret to defeating them is the Golden Armor. With the Golden Weapons rebuilt, Lloyd, the Ninja, Wu, and Garmadon combined their powers into an ultimate Tornado of Creation, vanquishing the Bringers of Doom and freeing the realms from their destructive grasp.
Months after the Oni's invasion, Lloyd and his friends fight against Aspheera and her Pyro Vipers after accidentally releasing them from their tomb. After Zane is banished by Aspheera's sorcery, he and the remaining Ninja send themselves to the Never-Realm to rescue him. Lloyd befriends the Formling, Akita, on his journey to find Zane, but they are separated when he is captured and brought to Castle of Ice, where he discovers that Zane has become the Ice Emperor. Zane's memories are triggered in time for him to save Lloyd from an attack from his adviser and manipulator Vex, freeing the realm from his tyranny. After saying goodbye to Akita, he and his friends return to Ninjago.
Sometime later, Lloyd and the other Ninja enter the virtual world of Prime Empire, when the legendary arcade game resurfaces and hundreds of gamers are zapped into it. Lloyd overcomes his hesitance when he faces an Avatar of Harumi created by Unagami, and they destroy each other in a clash. When Jay manages to console Unagami, Lloyd and everyone else formerly trapped in the game were released.
Lloyd is seen doing the laundry in order to clean the Monastery but decides to join Cole with a game of Prime Empire. After receiving an invitation to Shintaro Mountain, Lloyd and the Ninja travel to the Ivory City. Lloyd is suspicious of Vania and thinks she's deceiving the Ninja as Harumi did. When Cole is captured, he tries to rescue him with the other Ninja but ends up being captured as well. The Ninja manage to successfully breakout but Cole and Lloyd fail to locate the Blades of Deliverance, instead, alerting the Skull Sorcerer of their escape. The Ninja accidentally split up in their escape and Lloyd finds himself going to the Munce Home-Cave with Nya and Jay. Later Lloyd and the Ninja (except Cole) defend the Munce and Geckles from Grief Bringer. In exchange for the Geckles and Munce's freedom, the Ninja agree to be captured, but the Skull Sorcerer betrays them and enslave the Geckles and Munce anyways. When Plundar frees the Ninja, he helps fight the Awakened Warriors until Cole defeats the Skull Sorcerer with the Spinjitzu Burst. Before going, he apologizes to Vania for not trusting her.
Lloyd is the son of Lord Garmadon and Misako. The soon-to-be dark lord was filled with pride for his newborn son and wanted Lloyd to follow a different path from his own. The family was happy for a time, but one day Garmadon finally lost control over the evil within him and was banished to the Underworld. Lloyd was too young to remember Garmadon, but he had heard of him and was fond of his evil father, wanting to follow in his footsteps, unaware that Garmadon did not. Once he was old enough, Misako sent him to the Darkley's School for Bad Boys. On his first day at Darkley's School, everyone made fun of Lloyd, and Brad put fire ants in his bed. After everyone left, Brad took him under his wing and taught him the art of revenge.
One day, he had received a package from his "grandmummy" when another student named Finn took it from him and turned it into worms. Lloyd was expelled from school that same day because he didn't have the "amoral ambition to become one of tomorrow's masterminds." Before he left, he stole a cape and hood from a closet, planning to become an evil overlord by himself.Jamanakai Village, throwing toy snakes at the residents and demanding their candy. When the Ninja arrived, they were surprised to see a boy instead of the fearsome Lord Garmadon, prompting Lloyd to explain that he was the dark lord's son. He threatened to unleash the Serpentine on the Ninja if they didn't surrender, but the unimpressed heroes hung him on a sign, where the irate villagers pelted him with fruit for his trickery.
Eventually, Lloyd escaped swearing revenge on the Ninja. He ended up wandering into the icy Glacier Barrens, where he stumbled upon a strange tomb. Curious, Lloyd opened the tomb and fell inside, where he met the Hypnobrai, a tribe of real Serpentine. The Hypnobrai General, Slithraa, attempted to hypnotize Lloyd, but the would-be evil overlord slipped on the icy floor, causing Slithraa to stare at his reflection in the ice. Thus hypnotized by his attack, Slithraa accepted Lloyd as his master, and Lloyd immediately ordered the Hypnobrai to Jamanakai Village to take his revenge.
With the Serpentine at his side, Lloyd quickly subjugated the village, stealing all of its candy for himself as the Hypnobrai mesmerized the villagers. When the Ninja returned, Lloyd watched the battle until the Ninja managed to steal Slithraa's staff, prompting him to call a retreat.Treehouse Fortress within Wildwood Forest, planning to use it as a base from where he can conquer the rest of Ninjago. However, the Ninja attacked and began cutting the support ropes, causing it to collapse. Lloyd ordered the Hypnobrai to fight back, but Skales betrayed him by dropping him into one of his own booby traps. With Lloyd as their prisoner, the Hypnobrai raided the Monastery of Spinjitzu and burnt it to the ground, reclaiming their staff in the process.
Back at the Hypnobrai Tomb, Lloyd tried to convince Slithraa to make the others free him. However, Skales defied his General's command, challenging him to a Slither Pit for leadership. During the fight, Lloyd found the Map of Dens in an ice crevice and surreptitiously pocketed it while cheering Slithraa on. Unfortunately for Lloyd, Skales' superior fighting skills allowed him to defeat Slithraa and become the new General. With his authority, Skales banished Lloyd from the tomb, forcing the would-be evil overlord to wander Ninjago once again.
When the Ninja moved into the Destiny's Bounty, Lloyd sadly looked on from a distant dune, glaring at his enemies before continuing his own journey.Fangpyre from the Fangpyre Tomb and requested their aid against the Hypnobrai. Although the General, Fangtom, was more than happy to agree, he admitted that they would need to bolster their forces to stand a chance against the Hypnobrai. To this end, the Fangpyre led Lloyd to Ed and Edna's junkyard, where they bit Ed, Edna, and several vehicles.
The next morning, Jay and the other Ninja arrived at Ed and Edna's Junkyard to visit Jay's parents, only to find the latter slowly transforming into snakes. Lloyd appeared with Fangtom atop a junk pile as the Fangpyre attacked the Ninja, laughing as the heroes were beset by the Fangpyre Wrecking Ball and the Fangpyre Robot. When Master Wu attempted to use the Sacred Flute against the Fangpyre, Lloyd used a Serpentine boom box to drown out the melody, brushing off his uncle's demands to turn down the music.
Despite this, the Ninja defeated the Fangpyre forces, prompting Lloyd to call yet another retreat. To his dismay, the Ninja created vehicles of their own from their Golden Weapons, allowing them to catch up to the Rattlecopter and retrieve the Fangpyre Staff to return Jay's parents to normal. When Lloyd led the rest of the Fangpyre against the Destiny's Bounty, the ship took flight and escaped, although not before accidentally dropping the Fangpyre Staff on Fang-Suei's head.Anacondrai being the most powerful and fearsome tribe of all, Lloyd sought out the Anacondrai Tomb within the Sea of Sand.
Upon opening the tomb, Lloyd was greeted with a roomful of skeletons. The Anacondrai General, Pythor P. Chumsworth, appeared and explained that his tribemates had starved to death, and he was the last survivor. Although disappointed at the lack of minions, Lloyd asked Pythor to work for him against the other Serpentine, and the latter agreed, due to Lloyd releasing him from the tomb. The villainous duo proceeded to engage in several shenanigans around Ninjago (including stealing candy, trespassing on grass, and other mischiefs) before Pythor suggested attacking Darkley's as payback for Lloyd's expulsion.
Lloyd and Pythor proceeded to invade the former's former boarding school, holding his former classmates hostage and setting up booby traps for the Ninja. Despite this, the Ninja eventually cornered them on the roof, where Pythor showed his true colors and stole the Map of Dens. Lloyd protested this action, but Pythor mocked his attempt to control the Serpentine before vanishing from sight, leaving Lloyd to be apprehended by the Ninja.
With Lloyd in their captivity, the Ninja planned to give him a severe punishment, only for Master Wu to take a different approach: reading a book to Lloyd and welcoming him aboard the Destiny's Bounty. Although the Ninja questioned this course of action at first, they soon realized that Master Wu was trying to turn his nephew away from the dark path he had chosen to follow, and Lloyd soon agreed to work with his uncle against the forces of evil.Kai's high scores in Fist to Face 2 and blaming Cole; putting extra spices in Cole's Violet Berry Soup and claiming Jay was behind it; tinkering with Jay's Sparring Robot and saying Zane did it; and putting Kai's clothes in Zane's laundry, turning the latter's suit pink. He even stole Master Wu's lesson book, forcing the old master to improvise a lesson when he broke up the Ninja's argument. Before anything further could be done about Lloyd, Nya called the group to the bridge, revealing her findings on the locations of the remaining Serpentine tombs. While Cole and Zane investigated the Constrictai Tomb, and Kai and Jay went to search the Venomari Tomb, Lloyd was forced to stay on the ship and clean up the mess his pranks had left.
Unfortunately, the Ninja failed to stop Pythor from releasing the remaining Serpentine tribes, with Lloyd blaming himself for starting the trouble by unleashing the first three. Master Wu comforted him by reminding him that the past cannot be changed, only the future, and the Ninja subsequently redeployed when Serpentine activity was detected in Ninjago City.
After a successful mission to prevent Pythor from uniting the Serpentine tribes, the Ninja were eating dinner when Lloyd arrived, having finally washed the pink out of Zane's ninja suit. He apologized for his pranking and gave Cole a can of nuts, only for the Black Ninja to refuse, believing it to be another prank. In doing so, however, Cole ended up walking into Lloyd's real prank—a pack of rubber snakes in the fridge—and Lloyd joined the others in laughing at the success.
At the Destiny's Bounty, Lloyd is showing the Ninja how he would attack a Serpentine. The Ninja correct him excessively, and Lloyd asks Master Wu what the best way to defeat a Serpentine is. He tells the group that it was the Sacred Flute that Pythor stole and that without it he is afraid that they will have a hard time fighting off the Serpentine. The alarm goes off and alerts the Ninja to Serpentine activity at the Mega Monster Amusement Park and Lloyd quickly offers to tag along, but Master Wu tells him to stay aboard the ship.
Later on, Kai, who is patrolling Ninjago City for signs of Samurai X, drops Lloyd off at the Kiddie Arcade, much to Lloyd's protest. As Kai speeds off, Lloyd overhears the Serpentine being convinced to travel to the Lost City of Ouroboros. Lloyd dons a snake costume and follows the snakes on to a bus to the city. After a long drive, they reach the city, which is resting in the Sea of Sand. They all pile into a colosseum, where Pythor is announcing a Slither Pit. He tells the Serpentine that if he beats all the Generals at once, he wants their complete, undivided loyalty. Skales, who is secretly supporting Pythor, gives him the stolen Sacred Flute, which he uses during the fight. Lloyd notices this, yet continues to watch on regardless. Upon winning the fight, Pythor demands the Serpentine to bow, but Lloyd accidentally drops a part of his disguise in the process, alerting the Serpentine to his presence and allowing himself to be captured.
The Ninja, back at the Destiny's Bounty, are complaining about their failed attempts trying to capture the Samurai. Master Wu comes in, noting that Lloyd is not present. Kai tries to deflect the blame to Cole, who then tries to place it on Jay. Master Wu, who is utterly afraid of what might have become of his nephew, tells the Ninja to go find him. The Ninja begin to track down Lloyd, following security camera footage and footprints, and they discover he has been captured at the Lost City of Ouroboros. Although they try to rescue him, they are forced to flee, leaving Lloyd behind with the Serpentine.Desert Pyramid in search of the second Silver Fangblade. Realizing that the pyramid is full of traps, Pythor forced Lloyd to find the Fangblade for him. Although Lloyd narrowly managed to make it to the center of the pyramid, he discovered that the Fangblade was missing. He reported this to the Serpentine, who presumably extracted him from the pyramid before continuing their hunt for the Fangblade. Fire Temple. As Pythor excavated the artifact, the Ninja arrived, along with Lord Garmadon, who had allied with them in order to save his son. During the resulting battle, Pythor had a group of Constrictai burrow into the volcano to destabilize it, and the snakes carried Lloyd on their way out of the volcano. Before the Serpentine could escape, Lord Garmadon attacked them, successfully freeing Lloyd. Unfortunately, another tremor caused part of the ledge to crumble, leaving Lloyd stranded on a rock in the increasingly-unstable sea of lava.
As Lloyd floated on his perch, he saw Kai trying to retrieve the Fangblade as everyone else escaped. He begged Kai to help him, giving him a moment of indecision, but the Red Ninja eventually agreed, leaving the Fangblade to sink into the lava as he pulled Lloyd from the sinking stone. As the volcano erupted around them, Kai unlocked his True Potential at last, using his new abilities to shield himself and Lloyd as they flew back to the Destiny's Bounty.
Once the ship was safely away from the eruption, Lloyd was finally able to reunite with his father, who thanked Kai for the rescue. As Kai explained that he unlocked his True Potential by realizing his destiny was to protect, not become, the Green Ninja, the Golden Weapons began to glow. When held in front of Lloyd, the weapons floated in front of him and crackled with green lightning, revealing that Lloyd himself was the Green Ninja. Lloyd's surprised pleasure soon turned sour, however, as Lord Garmadon realized that this meant he would have to fight his own son in the final battle for control of the realm of Ninjago.
Lloyd arrives at the Serpentine's Underground Fortress but is powerless to help his allies. Just before he is captured, however, Lord Garmadon arrives with the Skulkin Army who battle against the Serpentine. Lloyd frees the Ninja from their cage, and together they steal the four Fangblades and return back to Destiny's Bounty where Lord Garmadon departs, leaving Lloyd upset, but proud of his father.Torchfire Mountain, Lloyd was training below deck on the Bounty when Pythor appears. He tied the struggling boy to the training equipment and duct-taped his mouth shut. Lloyd eventually managed to free himself and warn the Ninja that Pythor was onboard, but by then, the Snake King had already hacked the ship's system. Lloyd ran on deck to confront Pythor, who had by then taken the fang blades. Lloyd attempts to battle the snake, to which Pythor critiques his childish fighting skills. Lloyd explains, though, that he was only trying to distract him, and it is then that Nya in her Samurai suit arrives. The Serpentine general escapes, though, and Lloyd and Nya watch as he flies off on a Rattlecopter. Lloyd is told to stay on the Bounty while the others chase Pythor to the Lost City of Ouroboros, and he flies the ship there right behind them.

Ninjago at Peace
Following the Overlord's defeat, Lloyd traveled across Ninjago accepting medals and achievements as the Golden Ninja for his victory. His father also abandoned the title of Lord and began going by Master Garmadon, and swore an oath of nonviolence. Lloyd realizes that the Ultra Dragon is feeling homesick. They flew to the Spirit Coves and Lloyd chose to set him free.Nya that the Ninja were in trouble, and raced to New Ninjago City on his Golden Elemental Dragon to help. He used his Golden Power to temporarily disable the Security Mechs and reunited with the Ninja. Their reunion was quickly interrupted by the revived Digital Overlord, whom Lloyd declared that since he defeated him once, he could defeat him again. As the Security Mechs powered up, the Overlord stated that he didn't want to fight, he only wanted the Golden Ninja's power. Lloyd prepared to attack the mechs again but was stopped by Wu who realized that the golden power was only making them stronger. Their master then ordered the Ninja to flee the city while he tricked the Overlord, and Lloyd rode the Golden Dragon away.
Heading to his parents' monastery with the others, Lloyd was given a new green gi by Nya that would disguise him from the Overlord's facial recognition software. The group then visited Garmadon during a lesson, and Lloyd volunteered to face his father in a demonstration of the Art of the Silent Fist. Garmadon easily avoided his son's blows, and Lloyd let his temper get the better of him and nearly unleashed an elemental blast. The monastery was then attacked by the Overlord's new Nindroids, whom Lloyd was unable to battle effectively due to his Golden Power granting them greater strength.
After managing to escape, the heroes split up: the Ninja setting out to shut down the Wind Farms Power Station that energized the Nindroids and the rest of the Overlord's machinery, while Lloyd and his father sought to get as far from New Ninjago City as possible. To that end, Lloyd and Garmadon traveled to Nya's Samurai X Cave and used her car to accelerate their travels. Unfortunately, while passing through the Rice Fields, they were attacked by the Overlord's Nindroid MechDragon, and only escaped due to the Ninja and Nya accomplishing their task. With no power, they continued their journey on foot, fearing that the Overlord might still pose a threat.
Father and son found themselves traveling through the mountains, where Garmadon tried to impress upon Lloyd that he had potential beyond his Golden Power, including the ability to move mountains. However, Lloyd expressed little interest in learning the finer nuances of the powers he possessed as the heir of the First Spinjitzu Master, being content with the abilities granted him by his Golden Power. As the two continued their journey, however, they came across a Ravture nest with a chick in it, and Lloyd angered both his father and the adult Ravture by attempting to aid the youngling when it fell out of the nest. However, Lloyd then used his power to move mountains, much to his father's pleasure. Unfortunately, the Falcon then arrived with news that the Overlord was still at large, and the duo made their way towards Hiroshi's Labyrinth. Unbeknownst to them, this was part of their enemies' plans, and they began to zero in on the Garmadons' location.
As Lloyd and his father made their way through the labyrinth, Garmadon tried to impress upon Lloyd the importance of safeguarding the Golden Power. He warned him that his friends might one day seek it for themselves and that he would eventually have to carry the burden without even his father beside him. Lloyd became despondent at the thought, and his father encouraged him with the legend of the Jewel of the Labyrinth, an oasis that had supposedly never been seen within the depths of the jungle maze. The pair eventually came across it, only to be attacked by a force of Nindroids led by Master Wu, who had been turned into an evil cyborg by the Overlord.
While his father engaged Wu, Lloyd used his powers to produce an elemental cycle that he used to try and escape. Unfortunately, his father was captured by Wu and taken aboard the reactivated MechDragon, and his attempt to rescue him was thwarted by a hooded figure. The stranger then threw back his hood to reveal a horrifyingly familiar visage: Pythor, who had survived being eaten by the Great Devourer but had his scales bleached due to nearly being digested. The villains then took Lloyd aboard the MechDragon and dumped his father overboard, leaving Lloyd thinking his father had drowned.
The Overlord wasted no time in beginning the process to drain Lloyd's Golden Power, a process that left Lloyd badly weakened. However, he was somehow contacted by Zane-and contacted him in turn-while the Ninja were attempting to erase the Overlord from within the Digiverse. The Ninja managed to reboot the system, causing the MechDragon to crash and freeing Lloyd, who soon made his way to a small village. He was soon contacted by the other Ninja and their allies, which-to his amazement-included his father.
Realizing he couldn't hold the Golden Power by himself anymore, Lloyd decided to return to the Temple of Light to distribute it back to the four Ninja, thus restoring their elemental powers.
As the Ninja began their search for Pythor and his Nindroid forces, Lloyd used his bike to search the Toxic Bogs, then continued to the Glacier Barrens but no avail.
Lloyd eventually returned to Borg Tower after Kai had been captured by Pythor, and brainstormed with the others what Project Arcturus—the codename for a plan the Anacondrai intended to launch that very night—could be. They soon realized that he intended to use a rocket to retrieve the Golden Weapons to make the Overlord into the Golden Master, and raced to Ouroborus to stop him.Upon reaching the Serpentine City, the four Ninja located the rocket and freed Kai, though they were unable to stop the launch. Desperate to stop the Golden Master, Lloyd convinced the other Ninja to stow away with him on the rocket.
Shortly after the rocket entered space, Lloyd and the other Ninja came into contact with Wu, Nya, Garmadon, and P.I.X.A.L. who had returned to Borg Tower and recovered the rocket's blueprints. After Zane secured the other Ninja spacesuits, Lloyd leads them towards the cockpit to take command of the vessel. However before they could reach it, Cryptor dispatched several Nindroids to stop them while he piloted the rocket into the tail of the comet.
When Lloyd and the other Ninja awoke, they found themselves on the comet not too far from where Arcturus had landed, though Cryptor had taken the launch key. Lloyd discovered lunar rovers in the cargo hold and the Ninja set out crammed in one to find where the Nindroids had gone. They soon arrived in a large cave where the Golden Weapons had landed, though before they could reach the launch key, the Ninja fell under attack by a swarm of extraterrestrial beetles. The Nindroids used this to their advantage to escape, but Lloyd and the others pursued, only to arrive at the launch site to find Arcturus destroyed by the bugs, thus stranding them on the comet.
P.I.X.A.L. managed to coordinate their vehicles. They got a message from Cyrus saying he's at the Temple of Fortitude with something that can help them defeat the Overlord. However, the Ninja were separated from everyone else when they decided to help Nya after she crashed. However, they also lost their vehicles when they crashed, and decided to run towards the temple instead.
Once there, a shield is put up, and Cyrus reveals the object: a pill that can shrink the Overlord. The Ninja put on the Stone Warrior Armor to defend themselves against the Overlord.
When Nya arrived, the Ninja went for the Overlord, but Lloyd was concerned when he attacked the citizens. However, the Serpentine offered shelter to the people, so they continued guiding the Masters. They hit the pill towards him but failed when Pythor swallowed it instead. He trapped the Ninja in his web of Golden Power, and with no other choice, Zane charged after him. The Ninja are released but were surprised to see Zane has touched his Golden Armor. They took cover under a manhole but once they came back out, they grieved over their loss.
With the Overlord defeated, the citizens of Ninjago attended Zane's funeral and honored him for his sacrifice.
- Main article: History of Lloyd (The Tournament of Elements)
Prior to the events of Shadow of Ronin, Lloyd left the Ninja temporarily to mourn the loss of his father. The Ninja found him meditating on top of the Golden Peaks.
Lloyd's Tournament variant can be purchased for 50,000 studs after collecting his character token in Level 1: Chen's Island. He is armed with twin Golden Katanas and can perform Spinjitzu, use Green Ninja pads, and operate sword locks.
Lloyd's Jungle variant can be purchased for 50,000 studs. He is also armed with twin Golden Katanas like most of his other variants and can perform Spinjitzu, use Green Ninja pads and operate sword locks.Fangfish that had been terrorizing a nearby coastal village. They were successful in their efforts and soon returned to Wu's new tea shop "Steep Wisdom" where their Master asked the Ninja to hand out flyers. Lloyd agreed but was summoned to the museum by the police before he could do so.
Upon arriving at the museum, Lloyd was taken by the Night Watchman to one of the backrooms where he revealed that the Allied Armor of Azure was stolen. Lloyd however discovered that the guard was possessed by the ghost Morro who proceeded to take over the Green Ninja's body since the golden weapons didn't respond to him, meaning he wasn't the Green Ninja so he decided to lure Lloyd close enough for Morro to possess Lloyd so he would turn into the Evil Green Ninja.
During Morro's battle against Kai, the Master of Fire was able to summon the Green Ninja's consciousness. However, the red ninja was quickly pulled away by Destiny's Bounty and Morro regained control over Lloyd's body.Sword of Sanctuary between Kai and Morro, Lloyd regained enough control so that he was able to give the Master of Fire the sword before the possession took hold of him again.
Morro left Lloyd's body temporarily to instead possess Ronin to send a message to the Ninja. During this, Lloyd was locked away in a cage (for the third time in his life; the first being the Treehouse Fortress, then by the Serpentine), though he claimed that Morro would have never become the Green Ninja.Realm Crystal, Morro left Lloyd's body in an extremely weak state and threatened to kill him if they didn't give him the crystal. After Kai tricked Morro when giving it to him, Morro let go of Lloyd, who then tried to attack the ghost, but was pushed into the cave river. He then stayed just above the water as the current pulled him through the cave, too weak to swim ashore. Kai and Cole followed Lloyd along the river, but because Kai couldn't swim, and Cole couldn't touch water, they hesitated in making a decision. Kai finally dove into the river, grabbing Lloyd, and was able to keep them both above the water, and just as they were about to plummet down a waterfall, Cole saved them, despite being doubtful at first. Now that Morro had both the Sword of Sanctuary and the Realm Crystal in his possession, as he fled the cave Cole was desperate to run after him, but the other Ninja didn't want to, knowing that Lloyd was too tired to run with them. Despite the loss, they were determined to achieve victory in the battle with the ghosts. Steep Wisdom, only to find that Wu had sold it in order to finance new vehicles for his students provided by Cyrus Borg. The group soon set out to challenge the Ghost Warriors' occupation of Stiix with Nya leading the charge. While the other Ninja provided a distraction that included Nya donning Lloyd's green gi, Lloyd attempted to sneak in and recover the Realm Crystal. After engaging Morro he managed to recover the crystal but was interrupted as he attempted to destroy it by Morro, who tried to convince him that he would lose his father forever. Lloyd quickly realized that Garmadon would have willingly destroyed the crystal, but was seized by one of the emerging Preeminent's tentacles before he could accomplish the task. the Sixteen Realms, including the Realm of Madness, the Underworld, Cloud Kingdom, and Chima.
Morro eventually returned to Ninjago alone, but he and the Preeminent were soon defeated by the remaining Ninja. Wu then used the recovered Realm Crystal to open a new portal that admitted Lloyd. He revealed that the Sword of Sanctuary had enabled him to see the outcome of the battle, thus making it unnecessary for him to follow Morro back to Ninjago. He then revealed that his father had apparently perished as a result of the Cursed Realm's destruction, but felt that he-and they-were "in a better place." Wu noted that his father's robes had given Lloyd wisdom, but that he would have to walk a long road to qualify for the title of master, something that Lloyd welcomed and accepted.Lil' Nelson's Grant-a-Wish. Upon arriving in Stiix, the ninja were unable to locate Clouse and discovered to their horror that they had been framed for a crime-free. Now wanted criminals, Lloyd and the other Ninja were forced to split up to avoid detection.
After a brief meeting with the other Ninja where they discovered that a Djinn might be behind their framing, Zane and Lloyd headed to Domu to do further research. However, upon arriving at the library, the two were ambushed and captured by Ronin, who had been paid to round up the wanted Ninja. Once all six of them had been captured, they were lead onto a bus bound for Kryptarium Prison.Nadakhan, a feared pirate captain whom Soto had trapped himself centuries ago. That night, Lloyd orchestrated a prison break for him and the other Ninja, taking Soto along in exchange for information on how to defeat the Djinn.
Shortly after breaking out of Kryptarium, Lloyd and Cole went to search for Misfortune's Keep and chuckled when Cole called Nya "Delara." Finding only components, they regroup at the Yang Tavern Slither Pit and is surprised when Jay objected when he said "I wish—" before seeing news of Misfortune's Keep in Ninjago. Despite their current state as fugitives, they chose to help out. As he was about to regroup with the others, the Commissioner confronts him with a taser. Raising his hands, Lloyd explained his reasons before telling him to shoot him. Since the Commissioner doesn't, Lloyd used the opportunity to regroup with the others, before noting Kai is not with them.
The Ninja are amazed when Jay showed the remaining Ninja "his" villa. They realized whoever is alone will disappear so they decided to stay in pairs. Once they take a look at the map, the Ninja formed a plan to extract the Tiger Widow venom. However, the villa rumbles and, the news reporter says another chunk of Ninjago has gone missing.
The Ninja are unable to retain their Dragons long enough for their trip to Tiger Widow Island, so they took a yacht. They are met with a storm along the way and used Jay as a lightning rod while Zane has to go below the deck. The rest of the Ninja try to steady the ship but crashed on the Tiger Widow Island.
When they couldn't find Zane, Cole told the Ninja Jay made a wish with Nadakhan. After walking, they found the Tiger Widow's nest and watch Jay try to get its venom. They are interrupted by Sky Pirates. Once Jay got the venom, they try to escape but the bridge collapsed, and Nadakhan kidnaps Jay and spilled the venom. They were distraught by this, but Nya points out he got rid of the wrong canteen.
With the yacht destroyed and the mainland too far out, the remaining Ninja are stuck on the island. They decided the best way is to build a raft, so they went their ways to collect materials.
When they were almost done building the raft, the worm creatures start to attack them and destroyed the raft. The Ninja built a new one, and Nya showed them a contraption to distract the creatures. It malfunctioned, and the raft took some damage from being used as a shield. It starts to break apart when they are in the water. They see a helicopter with Ronin, the Commissioner, and the detectives, who claimed they realized they are not criminals after all. They then showed them a bottle with Jay's message in it.
When Dareth brought in the Hageman Brothers to think up a plan, they decided to disguise themselves as pirates and build a Raid Zeppelin that Jay sent.
When they are done, Lloyd and Nya are confronted by Clancee while Cole went to Misfortune's Keep. He eventually left when Flintlocke announced Jay escaped. By the time Cole and Jay came back, Nya and Lloyd are already captured.
Nadakhan threatens to make the Ninja walk the plank if Nya doesn't agree to marry him. Cole went first but saved himself when he wished Vengestone made their Elemental Powers stronger. Their powers became uncontrollable, so they had to break their ball and chains. Cole eventually wished everyone out of the ship, but they started falling, with Jay catching the venom. Nya wished the clouds can break their fall and they continue their battle. Afterward, Lloyd wished for a sword and he prods the cloud with it, making Jay and Nya fall. Nadakhan forces Clancee to wish Lloyd and Cole away, and they are absorbed into the Djinn Blade.Nadakhan was never released from the Teapot of Tyrahn, all the events and wishes made were erased, prompting Lloyd to return to normal and back to the hospital rooftop where he got the strangest sense of deja vu. When asked if they still intended to stop Clouse, Lloyd hoped that he missed his train, and joined the other ninja in congratulating Jay and Nya.
Lloyd and the other Ninja were summoned to the Samurai X Cave by Master Wu, who informed them that Misako and Ronin had gone missing off the coast of the Dark Island. The Ninja quickly readied the Destiny's Bounty and they set off towards the island.
Upon nearing the island, however, the Bounty encountered an unnatural storm that sent the Ninja flying to various areas of the Dark Island. Shortly after recovering, Lloyd attempted to take a banana from a tree but was then chased by several gorillas and quickly ran into Wu. After escaping from the gorillas by using Airjizu over quicksand, the two returned to the wreckage of the Destiny's Bounty. They spent several days repairing her and although she could not fly, the Bounty could float down the River of Darkness. Although Lloyd insisted they begin searching for his mother, Wu was adamant they sail for the Temple of Light, and Lloyd begrudgingly agreed.
He soon found Sky Pirates guarding the entrance to Digger's Deep where they were keeping Misako and the fishermen. Still, under the influence of Dark Matter, Lloyd angrily attacked them, though Zane and Cole arrived just in time to help him snap out of it. The three entered the cave, only to find Misako also under the influence of Dark Matter as she alerted the other Sky Pirates of their presence. Lloyd faced off against Dogshank, defeating her with his elemental energy which in turn freed Misako of the Dark Matter. As Cole and Zane went to procure vehicles with the help of Monkey Wretch, Lloyd and Misako helped free the fishermen. They all exited to the cave, only to find themselves surrounded by Sky Pirates. Thankfully, Cole, Jay, Nya, Zane, and Ronin arrived in their new vehicles, forcing the pirates to retreat. Lloyd jumped into the Ultra Stealth Raider and together with the other Ninja, pursued the Sky Pirates towards the Temple of Light.
Ninjago Museum of History in order to take Dr. Saunders' tour of the new Hall of Villainy, where they saw several sculptures of fallen former foes.
They then went their separate ways for the holiday, with Lloyd and his mother Misako traveling to the Corridor of Elders to pay their respects to Garmadon. Unfortunately, they were then attacked by Pythor, who had joined forces with several villains revived by Master Yang and now sought revenge on Lloyd. However, despite Pythor's underhanded tactics, he proved no match for Lloyd and Misako and threw himself from the top of Garmadon's statue in order to escape.
Lloyd soon reunited with his friends and learned they suffered similar attacks just as Wu appears and tells them of Yang's plan of distracting them as Morro also appears confirming this. Seeing Morro again, the Ninja prepare for a fight but Wu halts them and surprises them by stating Morro is on their side. Morro tells them that Yang tricked Cole into opening a rift to return to Ninjago. The Ninja then realized they forgot about Cole and Wu tells them to head to the Bounty as he would most likely be at the Temple of Airjitzu. With that, the Ninja head off while a redeemed Morro returns to the Departed Realm.
They are caught in a storm but call out to Cole who regains the strength to fight back against Yang. They witnessed the halting of Yang's plans and before telling Cole to go through the rift as he speaks to Yang who redeems himself by throwing Cole through the rift.
The shockwave of the rift's closure causes the Bounty to have a hard landing at the Temple. When asked if he was alright, Lloyd confirms before wondering about Cole and starts to worry about him before he emerges from behind a rock, human once more. Lloyd joins the others in hugging Cole remarking he wasn't a ghost anymore before adopting the restored Temple of Airjitzu as their new base. Later that night, the Ninja, with their friends and families, gather around a fire and listen to Cole's story before lighting the lanterns.

Prior to Hunted
Lloyd, Misako, Nya, P.I.X.A.L., and Dareth managed to resist Emperor Garmadon's oppressive hold on Ninjago City while mourning over the "deaths" of his friends as well as his de-aged uncle, not knowing they are marooned in the barbaric Realm of Oni and Dragons.Puffy Potsticker that Dareth had for him, he resumed training with Nya. After trying to fight P.I.X.A.L in her Samurai Mech, Lloyd gets frustrated with not having power. Just then, Dareth returns, telling them a Sons of Garmadon battalion is coming. The team flee the warehouse and hide underneath some garbage in an ally until the group led by Mr. E passes. They then discover that they are at the place where the Bounty was crushed by the Colossus. Lloyd finds the picture of him and looks at it with sadness before finding a leaf for Traveler's Tea and alerts the others of this.
The group investigate the ship more and see half of it has disappeared, realizing that their friends were not killed, but teleported elsewhere. This gives them hope for the future. However, their enemies show up and prepare to attack, surrounding them, but Karlof punches Mr. E away as Griffin Turner and Shade appear.
After the enemies sent are defeated, a garbage truck driven by Skylor picks them up and everyone retreats.
Arriving at a garbage depot, Skylor reintroduces the Elemental Masters to Lloyd. Lloyd then asks her about her powers of Amber, which she confirms has returned and tells him that his will as well. Lloyd asks how they knew they were in danger and Mistaké appears and is revealed to be the source.
Lloyd talks with Mistaké asking about his friends' whereabouts and Mistaké informs Lloyd that his friends were sent to the Realm of Oni and Dragons, which surprises him.
They infiltrate Borg Industries, which the Sons of Garmadon are using as a palace before bursting into the room where Ultra Hunt was being filmed to film the speech. As Lloyd made his speech, Harumi tried using a recording of his loss against his father to stop him. He briefly becomes haunted by the memory of losing his powers but he overcomes it after seeing pictures of those who were captured and realize they need him. Lloyd continues speaking and reveals while he may have lost his powers, he is still around and encourages everyone to fight. Lloyd ends his speech by personally challenges his father and leaves with a message, proclaiming 'The Resistance never quits!' which plays on a loop.
After some time, Killow and Harumi barge in, only to find Lloyd's group gone, but realizing the location of their base after seeing garbage trucks drive away.
Lloyd joins with the others in celebration of his successful speech to the people, in which Nya, Skylor, and Misako compliment his words. Lloyd goes on to ask if there are more elemental masters who could join, only to find that the rest have either been captured, become evil (Chamille), or have an unknown status. After having his idea of allying with the Serpentine shot down as well, Lloyd tries to brainstorm ideas on who else can help. Dareth hints that he can help as well, to which Lloyd agrees by asking Dareth to get refills for their drinks.
Later, Dareth comes back to tell Lloyd and the others about his "brown power" only to have a sudden urge to go and leaves. The Sons of Garmadon surround the building to prepare an ambush, unknowingly to Lloyd and the others.
Lloyd and the rest of the Resistance talk over plans to stop Garmadon, but Lloyd assures everyone that no one can stand up to his father's power. As they continue talking, Dareth rushes in and warns the team about the ambush, and the Sons of Garmadon climb down from the roof into the Garbage Depot. Lloyd helps Skylor and the others fight off the attackers, before being stopped by Harumi, who wears the Mask of Hatred. Skylor manages to hold off Harumi long enough for Nya to escape with Lloyd, and they get away in Nya's new vehicle. They escape with Skylor and Dareth, leaving the others behind to be arrested, much to Lloyd's reluctance.As they try to flee the city, Garmadon spots them and uses the Colossus to chase after them, almost crushing the vehicle under the Colossus' foot. Lloyd silently pleads for his father to stop, causing Garmadon to hesitate for a moment before continuing to crush the vehicle. P.I.X.A.L. flies in to help, only to be shot down by Garmadon and later be arrested. Nya manages to get the vehicle free, and they drive off, with Lloyd watching his father until he is out of sight as they drive away.
Later, Lloyd and Nya stand in Ninjago City wearing dull brown robes, burning their Ninja gi in the fire. Lloyd hesitates, telling Nya that the gi is who he is, but Nya manages to convince him to burn it, telling him that the gi never defined who he is and that they needed to get rid of anything that could give them away. Skylor and Dareth come with food from some of the kind citizens, despite Nya assuming they stole it at first. A rat soon shows up that scares Dareth, only to find it is actually Mistaké in disguise. Lloyd asks the old lady how she transformed, but she pretends to not hear the question and instead becomes interested in the food.
Nya bursts into a house where the remainder of the Resistance is using for shelter, telling them that it's chaos all around the place. Lloyd, desperate to know Mistaké's secret, assures her that everyone's had enough food and that she should explain. She explains that she's an Oni and Lloyd questions why she's not evil because of who she is. Nya wonders aloud how Mistaké even got to Ninjago from the First Realm, and Lloyd explains that she must have come through the same time that the First Spinjitzu Master created Ninjago. Mistaké tells Lloyd that her original mission was to turn the First Spinjitzu Master to the Oni's side or destroy him. Instead, she had fallen in love with the world the First Spinjitzu Master had created, and decided to help him ever since. Lloyd asks why he can't transform if he also has Oni blood, but Mistaké points out that he has been transforming the whole time, throughout his life—from a bratty child to the Green Ninja, and now to the leader of the Resistance. She says that he has one final transformation in order to endure Garmadon, one that he must discover for himself.
As night approaches, the Sons of Garmadon surround the area, looking for Lloyd. Harumi leads the search, threatening the people if they don't tell her where Lloyd is. Knowing that Harumi is looking for him, Lloyd decides not to run, but to change things up. Mistaké, shapeshifting into Lloyd, leads the Sons of Garmadon on a wild goose chase before finally, Harumi is alone. The actual Lloyd confronts her, telling her that those who cannot change, cannot change anything. Harumi scoffs, pointing out that Lloyd himself has gone from the gi of the Green Ninja to a beggar in rags. Lloyd tells her that she took away his friends, so he's taking away hers, and Harumi realizes that Lloyd and the others have her surrounded.
Lloyd and the others hold Harumi tied to a chair, discussing what they should do with her. Harumi tries to mess with Lloyd, asking him how it feels that Garmadon cares more for her than for his own son, but Lloyd counters that his father cares for no one, and he only desires for more power.
Skylor and Mistaké usher Lloyd, and Dareth outside, showing off what they found in Harumi's belongings- the Mask of Hatred. Skylor points out that the mask could be useful to Lloyd in case his powers never return, but Lloyd decides not to. He throws it at Harumi's feet, explaining that it's a trap and that the only reason someone like Harumi would get caught is that they allow themselves to be caught. Harumi tells Lloyd "once green, always green," causing Lloyd to spend much time in thought over her words.
On the rooftop, Lloyd tells the others that he's accepted that he may never get his powers back, and formulates a plan to get Skylor to absorb Garmadon's power so that she can control the Colossus. Mistaké shapeshifts into Harumi, and Lloyd presents the disguise to the actual Harumi, who is outraged. Lloyd watches as Nya puts a gag on Harumi's mouth to shut her up.
Long after Skylor and Mistake leave to formulate the plan and Lloyd leaves Dareth in charge of watching over Harumi, he comes back to find that Harumi escaped and tied up Dareth in her place.
Skylor returns to Lloyd and the others after absorbing Garmadon's power, sadly not returning with Mistaké. Nya accidentally knocks down a radio, and the voices of the Sons of Garmadon confirm that Skylor was followed. Lloyd asks if Skylor can control the Colossus, and they go to the rooftop to find out.
As Skylor tries to control the Colossus, Garmadon controls it instead, sending it towards Lloyd and the others. Lloyd tries to encourage Skylor as she attempts to control the Colossus, which works for a time. Lloyd watches as Skylor uses the Colossus to knock down several of the Sons of Garmadon, including Ultra Violet and Killow, and destroying the Mask of Deception. As Skylor pilots the Colossus up Borg Tower, Garmadon takes back control and continues his own advance on Lloyd. The power begins hurting Skylor, and the team realizes that they're running out of options.
As Harumi tries to escape the Colossus's destruction, Lloyd locks eyes with her from across the city, and he watches helplessly as she is swept away by the collapsing building. Garmadon is enraged by the death of his "daughter," taking out his anger on Lloyd as he swears to bring the city to ruin.
Still on the rooftops, Lloyd grabs Skylor's poisoned form and escapes with the others. Dareth and Nya jump down to another roof, while Lloyd hesitates, knowing that it will never work while carrying Skylor. In his hesitation, the Colossus's fist comes in to hit Lloyd, but he manages to jump on top of it, using it to make a safer landing on the next roof. Dareth helps Lloyd up while Nya does so for Skylor, and Lloyd continues carrying Skylor through the city.
As they hurry through the city streets, they come across Ultra Violet, who had been knocked away a few blocks down by Skylor earlier. Ultra Violet runs after them, intent on capturing Lloyd for Garmadon. Nya tells Lloyd and Dareth to keep going while she holds Ultra Violet off, much to Lloyd's reluctance. Lloyd and Dareth help Skylor walk as they try and find the vehicle, and Nya soon joins after beating Ultra Violet. Nya says that they should leave the city, just until everything calms down, and Dareth agrees, pointing out that Mistaké said to stay alive until the other Ninja return, which they still hadn't. Lloyd looks up to the sky, whispering "Where are you guys?" before following the rest of the group.
Lloyd tended to Nya as Violet tumbles after them before she collapses. As they prepare to escape, more members of the Sons of Garmadon surround them and they wonder what to do.
As they fight off their enemies, Lloyd tells his group to not let up. Fortunately, a portal forms in the air and dragons appear while the riders are revealed to be the Ninja. A happy Lloyd laughs that the Ninja have come back and held out to see them. Lloyd is then amazed to see his uncle Wu has aged back into an adult and by his new armor.Confronting his father with his uncle, Garmadon declares them as his enemies before they fight. The three fought with Garmadon remarking the fight fuels before knocking Wu from the battle leaving Lloyd alone. Despite them fighting, Garmadon prevented Lloyd from falling to certain death twice and Lloyd tried to talk sense into his father but Garmadon ignored it. Lloyd soon stopped fighting and resisted his father long enough by using the Art of the Silent Fist, until the latter loses his power and Lloyd regains his own, undergoing his next transformation as Mistaké predicted. After refusing to use his regained powers to kill him, Garmadon warns his son of impending danger, causing him to be confused by it. As the Sons of Garmadon are loaded into a police van, Lloyd appeared and had his father arrested for his actions. The Ninja were happy to see he won the battle and recovered his powers. Several days later, Lloyd and the Ninja, in their previous gi, clean up the Palace of Secrets before Wu, now an old man again says there is trouble. But as they came out, it turned out to be a lie as the public and The Fold wanted to congratulate them as well as P.I.X.A.L., Skylor, and Dareth. Later that night as fireworks were going off around the city, Lloyd comes up to the roof to see Wu saying goodbye to the Firstbourne as she and the dragons have to leave. Lloyd then tells his uncle about Garmadon's warning and since Wu didn't see them, Lloyd proclaims that if Garmadon was right: The Oni are coming.
Master Wu gives the Ninja a review in Spinjitzu, teaching them to balance, conquering fear, focus, and teamwork. In the process of learning the lesson in teamwork, the Ninja spill the painter's bowl of golden paint, which in turn covers Master Wu and Kai. Master Wu then concludes the lessons.
After falling asleep while reading a book, Lloyd dreams about the fate of the Ultra Dragon. Sometime between the events of the Final Battle and before the Nindroid conflict, while Lloyd and "Ultra" were on patrol, they discovered members of the Venomari Tribe attacking a village. Lloyd jumps off of Ultra's back and summons his Golden Dragon, and the two split up to more effectively defeat the Serpentine. Lloyd and Ultra foil the attack and fly back into the air.
Ultra Dragon disappears into the clouds, and Lloyd follows it to the Spirit Coves. There, Lloyd notices that Ultra is homesick. He gives Ultra permission to return to the Realm of Oni and Dragons. Ultra then flies out of the Cove and opens a portal to its home realm, as Lloyd waves goodbye to him, sadly. It ends with the Ultra Dragon flying with the other dragons, the Firstbourne included, and outside of the dream, the sleeping Lloyd smiles.
At Garmadon's request, Lloyd went to visit him in Kryptarium, where he explains the bringers of doom are about to arrive. Lloyd then tells him he won't trust him again and left in anger.Lloyd went back to the Monastery to find Faith resting. She told Wu that darkness swept over her home realm and that she barely escaped. He points out it might be the Oni and the Ninja head to the Bounty to prepare.
While trying to defeat the darkness, the Ninja noticed their Elemental Powers have no effect. They retreated, but Lloyd had to save Cole when he fell. Once they were back on the Bounty, Lloyd told the Ninja that Garmadon might help them so they went to Kryptarium to release him.Zane asked Lloyd to keep an eye on Garmadon to prevent him from causing more trouble. They both went into the cabinet, where Garmadon questioned all the photos. When Garmadon destroyed a picture frame containing a photo of his reformed self and Lloyd, Garmadon left the room, leaving his son distraught.
Zane then asked that everyone meet up at the bridge, where Garmadon proceeds to tell the Ninja about how the Oni were able to enter Ninjago. They used the Realm Crystal and he would be able to go inside the dark cloud to destroy it due to being part Oni, but he would need a weapon. Lloyd then argues that they can't just let him have a weapon then let him walk away unsupervised. Since Lloyd is part Oni as well, he claimed he would also survive the darkness and decided to go with him.
When they arrived at Borg Tower, the Ninja handed Garmadon a sword, but he started attacking them to activate his powers. He jumped off, and Lloyd followed. He survived the dark clouds and continued until he found Cyrus petrified. Garmadon convinced Lloyd to leave him behind or they'll slow down, but Lloyd assured Cyrus he will save him.
They then fought an Oni and entered the tower. There, Garmadon tried to shatter the Realm Crystal, but the Omega stopped him and started attacking them.
After a brief conversation with the Omega, the trio continued fighting. Lloyd was launched into a display containing the Sword of Sanctuary. However, the sword's reflection failed; he instead went for the Realm Crystal while Garmadon distracts the Oni. The Omega explained the crystal was only the key needed to open the portal and destroying it won't do anything. More Onis are summoned and Son and Father retreated. They are surrounded but noticed the Oni feared the Golden Master's armor. They managed to escape Borg Tower but were surprised to learn the Ninja had to leave with the Bounty due to a distress call. Instead, P.I.X.A.L. entered the dark clouds, and being a Nindroid, was able to save them. When she did, she noticed she was running out of fuel.Lloyd and Garmadon are then surrounded by the Oni, but P.I.X.A.L. saved them on time. She ran out of fuel and they began to fall until the others arrived with the Bounty. The Ninja then told them that Cole was gone. After Garmadon told them they are wasting time mourning, he showed them the Golden Master's armor. However, everyone was upset at him and started leaving.
The Ninja landed near the monastery and Wu and Misako went to see them. The Ninja told the two that Cole had fallen into the dark clouds and that destroying the Realm Crystal did nothing. However, Garmadon showed them the Golden Armor and Nya explained that they may have a chance if they reforged the Golden Weapons. After Kai finished, he gave the weapons to their respective Ninja but had to give the Scythe of Quakes to Nya. A monk signals to the Ninja that the Oni have arrived, and they prepare to fight.
The Ninja begin to fight the Oni and are surprised to see Cole arrive. Nya hands him his Scythe, but even with him they are overpowered and retreat into the monastery. They then watch as Jay asks Nya to be his Yang, to which she accepts. Lloyd points out that they can try using the Tornado of Creation against the Oni.
After defeating the Oni, Lloyd finds himself in the Grasslands and is greeted by the Golden Dragon, as well as the First Spinjitzu Master. Lloyd bows in respect to meet his grandfather. The First Spinjitzu Master expressed his gratitude and offered to take Lloyd somewhere or to return him to his friends, with him gradually forgetting the meeting. As Lloyd reaches for his hand, he begins to regain his consciousness. The Ninja were relieved and as a celebration, their allies visited the monastery and watched them make a new mural with their handprints.
The Ninja, sans Jay and Zane, watch as Cole beats Zane's high score in a game called Lava Zombies. The Ninja relax in a hot tub outside of the monastery, which actually turns out to be the Bell of Divinity. Infuriated, Wu puts the Ninja to a test to see how long they can survive in the room with his chicken. They were able to trap the chicken, but Wu was unimpressed.
After complaining about the traps Wu set up, the Ninja asked him what to do. He challenged them to a battle but were easily defeated. Once again, the chicken was released to punish them.
Lloyd appears at the beginning of the episode walking in on Master Wu's meditating. He tries it but, eventually breaks and asks for a quest tip. Master Wu denied him and sent him out. The Ninja thought about who to battle, but Zane comes up with an idea to help the Police Commissioner with stopping crimes.
The Ninja rush to help him, to find no crimes, just paper cuts and cats in trees. They return back to the Monastery, where they turn on their TV to find Gayle Gossip in a news story with Clutch Powers where he has discovered a pyramid in the Desert of Doom. The ninja quickly rush over there but do not see a stone with a snake carved on it.
The Ninja rush around the Monastery, packing to prepare for their quest. Before they head off, P.I.X.A.L. introduces the Ninja to the Hanger Bay. They quickly head off with the Land Bounty and two other vehicles.
In the Land Bounty, Zane informs the Ninja about Beohernie, although Jay thinks the people mispronounced his name and should be called "Bernie." Cole discovered an oasis to stop and have lunch. Zane continues talking about the desert, and Cole leaves to get food, but the basket sank to the ground. The Ninja rush to their vehicles and are able to outrun Beohernie; however, it isn't at the cost of losing one of the key compartments the Land Bounty needs.
Lloyd and the others are trapped while Zane attempts to repair the Land Bounty, but it will be impossible to escape without the component the beetle ate.
That night, Lloyd hears Zane says that the Bounty is useless without the component, and the only way to retrieve it is to go to the belly of the beast itself. He then gets the idea that one of them has to be strapped to a rope and sent into the stomach of the beetle. They play a rock-paper-clamp tournament in order to decide who goes in, and Zane ends up being the winner.
The next morning, Zane goes on the sand and is consumed by Beohernie. When Zane notifies the Ninja that he found the component, the Ninja pull him from Beohernie, but he resists by pulling onto Cole's Dirt Bike. The force by Beohernie causes Cole to fall out of his vehicle and onto the sand where two more bugs begin to attack, but they are repelled by the Ninja. Eventually, Kai shot fireballs at Beohernie's belly which allowed Zane to escape the belly of the beast.
With the component recovered, the Ninja were to escape the rock and outrun the other scarab beetles to their next destination, the Ancient Pyramid.
The Ninja try to convince Clutch Powers to explore with them but cannot. Clutch gets a call from the Explorers Club. His membership is about to get revoked, so he helps. The Ninja go past obstacles. Cole uses his strength to lift a column. Later on, Jay trips a cobweb and the Ninja fall into spikes Kai destroyed with his fire.
They soon reach a room with a sliding puzzle on a wall. Jay and Nya accidentally freed Aspheera, by finishing the puzzle. Clutch flees, saying he will be asking for help. She steals Kai's power and traps Lloyd and the other Ninja after she beats them with Spinjitzu.
Despite the rushing lava, the Ninja are able to escape their prison; however, they are still chained. When they get to the barrier, Cole uses his lava arms to lift the barrier allowing the other Ninja to pass. As Cole was lifting the rock up, Jay caught sight of lava approaching them and immediately begins running away from the lava. Not realizing they were still tied together, this caused a chain reaction, as Lloyd and Cole were pulled towards Jay causing Cole to drop the rock and nearly crushing Kai.
When they reach the spikes, they find supplies from Hageman needed to ascend the slope. As they began their ascent, Cole complains about Kai's weight causing him to lose his grip and the Ninja to fall until Nya is able to grip the slope. Despite the setback, the Ninja are able to reach the top.
The Ninja reach outside the pyramid, but they realize they are surrounded by lava. When all hope seemed lost, P.I.X.A.L. arrives in the ShuriCopter and saves the Ninja.
After the long ride, the Ninja reach their vehicle and promise that they will be ready for Aspheera.
After the Ninja save Fred Finely from an Elemental Cobra, the reporter freaks out, so Lloyd and Cole calmed him down. After Fred tells the Ninja where Aspheera is, they head off.
The Ninja save the Police Commissioner and his crew from the Elemental Cobras. Before heading off to the Museum, Kai informs them that he will stay behind, thinking that he will ruin everything due to his powers being stolen. Lloyd attempts to get him to change his mind, but Kai ignores him so they head off, but not before Lloyd informs him that the window is still open.
The Ninja fight the Elemental Cobras while Lloyd fights Aspheera and ultimately losses to her. She then performs Spinjitzu against the Ninja and successfully defeats them. Aspheera then used her staff to destroy parts of the roof and cause the debris to fall on the Ninja. After that, she reawakens the Pyro Vipers still in their tombs and tells them to follow her out of the museum, and the Elemental Cobras to finish off the Ninja.
Before the Elemental Cobras destroy the Ninja, Jake comes in to shield the Ninja, but Kai catches up and rescues Jake out of trouble while turning on the fire sprinklers to distract the Elemental Cobras before Zane finishes them using his ice powers.
Lloyd, Zane, and Nya head off to stop Aspheera by taking a shortcut using Zane's GPS system. After arriving close to Aspheera, Zane headed off somewhere and promised to return.
Nya distracts Aspheera while Lloyd attempted to steal the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. Ultimately, Lloyd failed and both were surrounded by Pyro Vipers. Luckily, Zane arrives in his Shuricopter and creates an ice barrier, giving Lloyd and Nya enough time to escape.
While Lloyd, Nya, and Zane are in Ninjago City looking for Aspheera, Cole notifies them that she is on her way to the Monastery. In addition, he tells them to find Clutch Powers; believing he knows the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu's whereabouts.
When Lloyd, Nya, and Zane arrive at the Ninjago City Hospital, Clutch Powers tells them that the second scroll is at the Explorers Club, but he refuses to leave. When Nya pulls him from his bed, Clutch calls the nurses who escort the Ninja away.
When Lloyd, Nya, and Zane enter The Explorers Club, they are welcomed by Cecil Putnam, and the trio explains that they need the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. Luckily for them, The Explorers Club possessed the scroll; however, the Ninja needed a membership for the club. Since the Ninja didn't have a membership, they were pushed out from the building.
The Ninja tried again, but this time, they used Zane disguised asClutch Powers. Once Zane entered the building, he is confronted by Putnam who tells Zane that his membership had been suspended and cannot obtain any artifacts.
After the two failed attempts, Nya decided to be bold by sneaking in the building and stealing the scroll. Lloyd and Zane follow up, and all three reach the rooftop. The trio then shut down a fan by using Lloyd's sword and Zane's ice to prevent it from moving and made their way down the ventilator using a rope hook. Suddenly, the fan broke free causing the Ninja to fall and crash into a middle of a meeting between Shippelton, Smythe, and Underhill.Lloyd tried to come up with an excuse by saying they were working on the air conditioning, but his sword came tumbling down. Shippelton knew he was lying and calls for security, causing the Ninja to flee into a room. The three ninjas notice a mirror that alters their image into their worst fears and Lloyd sees Garmadon's reflection instead of his own. Stating that his worst fear is becoming his father. After avoiding the members of the Explorer's club, the Ninja manage to steal the second Forbidden Scroll and escape.
The Pyro Vipers break the door to the Hanger Bay, but they are unable to find Wu until Jay accidentally reveals their hiding spot by sneezing. Before Aspheera could do any harm, P.I.X.A.L. uses the Titan Mech to defend the Ninja and Wu. Despite this, Aspheera is able to hold her ground and holds the Ninja hostage until Lloyd, Nya, and Zane arrive with the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu.
A lengthy battle ensues with Lloyd having the chance to possess the Scroll when it falls into his hands. Eventually, Zane gets the Scroll and freezes the Pyro Vipers. Before Zane gave back the Scroll to Wu, Aspheera's arm manages to get free and she attempts to zap Wu, but Zane saved his master by pushing Wu of the way causing him to be hit and be seemingly destroyed.
The Ninja come running in after P.I.X.A.L. has a nightmare of losing Zane. Wu then tells the Ninja that Zane is alive; however, Wu won't let the Ninja come since its location is remote.
Despite this, Lloyd steals the Traveler's Tea and the Ninja head to the Hanger Bay where they spot Wu holding the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. A lengthy battle occurs as both sides were fighting for the Traveler's Tea. This gave the Ninja no choice, but to tie Wu up and place a mouthpiece over him. In the end, the Ninja headed inside the Land Bounty while P.I.X.A.L. stood outside and zapped the vehicle into the Never-Realm.
The Land Bounty lands are a cliff forcing the Ninja to evacuate and during the process, Cole loses the Traveler's Tea. This causes an argument with Jay before Lloyd breaks up the fight and suggests they head down the mountain to avoid freezing.
After hiking through frigid temperatures, the Ninja finally make it to a forest where it’s still cold. In addition, the Ninja face danger when they are approached by Frost Wolves. The Ninja flee from the danger, but Lloyd runs into a tree giving a chance for the wolves to attack but in spite of that, the wolves head off somewhere else. What the Ninja don’t realize is that one of the wolves is frozen on a tree.
Following the unusual sight of wolves running away, the Ninja stumble upon some people who are also frozen. Nya is able to sense one of the victims realizing they have a heartbeat and are still alive, but Nya also gets a signal on the Titan Mech. Before they sought out to find the Mech, Jay believed they should help the people, but Lloyd and Nya stand their ground saying they should get more information before assisting the people.
After following the bleak signal for some time, the Ninja run into the wolves again, but this time they fight. They are able to hold their ground for some time until three mysterious people shoot arrows at the wolves causing them to run away.
The Ninja follow the people to a nearby village where they are greeted by Sorla. After both sides give their introductions, Sorla throws a potion into the hearth fire, and they are able to find Zane’s location which is the Castle of Ice. Sorla tells them that Zane was most likely taken captive by the Ice Emperor and he is "lost." However, Lloyd believes Zane is strong and they will still come for him despite all the dangers she said. Sorla then warns them of General Vex who is out to get the Ninja.
Lloyd and Sorla discuss the path to the Castle of Ice. Sorla warns Lloyd to be very quiet on this path or else Wujira will "strike you down."
Lloyd fights one of the Blizzard Warriors, he changes faces, but is soon corrupted and fights Lloyd.
Although the Blizzard Samurai didn't destroy the Ninja, the Hearth Fire was taken out by the Blizzard Samurai leaving them freezing in the winter night. Kai continues to blame himself for not having his Elemental Powers before trying once more. This time, he is able to create the Fire, and the Ice Fishers chant "Fire Maker" due to his success.
Lloyd finds Nya and tells her to protect the Great Lake while he goes to the Castle of Ice alone. After convincing her, the rest of the village bids him farewell, with Jay giving him a fish and Nya giving him the tracking device for the mech.
During his hike, a pack of wolves was about to attack him, but another wolf saves him. He offers her his fish, and he continues his journey. He was then ambushed by Blizzard Samurai, but after being overpowered, he remembered what Sorla said about making noises. He used this to his advantage and caused an avalanche.
He was dragged out of the pile of snow by the wolf, and she leads him to the Land Bounty. However, he cannot turn it on. He gathers supplies to warm himself and decided to head back to the village to make a new plan. Suddenly, the device alerted him of the mech and had faith he could find Zane.
In Ultra Violet's story, Lloyd and Nya surrendered to Ultra Violet.In Fugi-Dove's story, Lloyd, Kai, and Cole failed to stop him from stealing when he punched holes in their hang gliders with his feathers.
As Lloyd and the wolf continued their journey, he told her about Garmadon's evil side. He then decided to name her Red, after her facial markings. The device's signal became stronger, and they continued forward. They eventually found out they entered an Ice Bird's territory. Unable to fight it off, they found a cave to hide in.
The cave turned out to be where the mech was, but Zane wasn't there. He attached jumper cables to the mech and found a farewell message from Zane.
He then tried to start the mech up but found the battery has been drained. By connecting the jumper cables to the battery and using his Energy, he was able to start it up.
With the mech, he was able to fend off the bird. Although Red was initially unsure of the mech, Lloyd was able to convince her it won't hurt her and they can travel faster.
In Cole's nightmare, Jay, Kai, and Lloyd were disappointed in Cole after he left the tea behind. They made him go back for it, and the Bounty fell off the cliff.
They reach a frozen lake and Lloyd inspects the ice. They tried to leave the area but was attacked by an Ice Behemoth. Once it was defeated, Lloyd bandaged Red's leg and set up camp.
When they woke up, Lloyd found out that Red is a human. They argued, but their friendship was amended when Lloyd tells her not to run on her broken leg. After tending to it again, they apologize. The girl reveals her real name to be Akita and offers to tell him her backstory.
Lloyd listened to Akita's story about the Formlings. After her explanation, he stated they are on the same quest. Akita denied this, stating that Lloyd was there to save his friend and she seeks to avenge her village.
Lloyd and Akita have arrived far enough that they are able to see the Ice Emperor's castle, but it is too dark and they camp out for the night. They exchange their plans after they have defeated the Ice Emperor and rescued Zane, but they are interrupted by Boreal.
After a fierce and quick battle, Boreal injures them both and takes Lloyd to the Ice Emperor. There, Lloyd discovers that the Ice Emperor is nonetheless, his friend, Zane.
Lloyd is shocked that Zane is the cruel Ice Emperor. He tries to remind him of the good times he had with the team, but Zane does not remember. Eventually, he concludes that the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu had corrupted him and tries to convince him to put it down. Lloyd assumes that time moves by different in the Never-Realm after Zane stated that he held the staff for decades. After a short brawl, Lloyd is knocked unconscious and sent to the Ice Emperor's dungeon, despite Vex's pleas.
After Lloyd wakes up, he meets a new friend who turns out to be Kataru, Akita's long lost brother. Kataru bluntly tells him there is no escape from the dungeon, but Lloyd reveals to him that Akita is still alive and his friends were coming. His wish eventually becomes true when Grimfax, the leader of the Blizzard Samurai army, rescued them and he started up a new Resistance.
Lloyd, Kataru, and Grimfax try to find and destroy Vex's Crystal. However, Vex and the warriors already know, and they have the Resistance surrounded. Grimfax and Kataru fight them while Lloyd goes to find Zane.
He arrived in his throne room just before Zane was about to defeat Akita and revealed Zane's identity to her.
Lloyd tries to convince Zane that he was not an emperor. He then explains to Akita that he is not a bad guy, and stops her from hurting him.
Zane and Lloyd attack each other, but Zane was able to trap him in ice. Once Vex arrives and implores Zane to finish Lloyd, the latter hesitates. Vex moves to the job and is about to kill him for the Emperor while taunting Lloyd. However, Zane regains his memories when Vex said “protect” and saves Lloyd. Lloyd watches is Zane destroys his staff and freeze the realm of the ice liberating it. Happy to see his friend regain his memories, they re-connect until Lloyd sees that Vex is angry and attempting to kill Zane but is frozen by him in revenge for his manipulation.Later, the Ninja were disappointed that the Traveler's Tea leaves were not enough to open a portal back to Ninjago. Their spirits soon lifted when Cole shows Sorla the berry he had saved, which is potent enough. After exchanging goodbyes with Akita, she gives him a kiss on his cheek before he jumped through the portal.
Lloyd called Jay and Nya to help subdue The Mechanic after he broke into a warehouse.
Lloyd and the rest of the Ninja were chasing The Mechanic after he robbed a warehouse. However, The Mechanic was able to flee quickly. When Nya and Jay join the Ninja late, Lloyd asked about their previous whereabouts, and Jay and Nya lied about what they actually did.
- Main article: History of Lloyd (Prime Empire)
Lloyd catches Cole slacking off and is instead playing video games while the rest of the Ninja are doing their chores. However, Lloyd decides to join in.
Sometime later, Lloyd finds Wu is a depressed state and their master explains that he feels like he's no longer needed as the Ninja were able to successfully carry out their missions without him. Lloyd tells Wu that he's still needed, but he walks away.
Lloyd then heads outside to hear that they're being invited to Princess Vania's birthday at the Kingdom of Shintaro. Wu also heads outside and Lloyd tells Wu about the good news and recommends he should come along, but Wu doesn't want to go. However, Wu ends up going along after Misako forced him.
Lloyd and the Ninja head to the Ivory City via the Bounty. Along the way, they encounter the Dire Bats. One even attempts to attack Nya, so Lloyd jumps on it. Eventually, the Bounty still descends after one of the Dire Bats runs into the pole containing the sail. Although all hope seemed lost, the Winged Guards of Shintaro carry the ship while Hailmar greets the Ninja and shows them the Kingdom of Shintaro in the horizon.
The Ninja are welcomed into the palace by King Vangelis. After hearing how Princess Vania is such a big fan of the Ninja, especially Cole, Lloyd becomes suspicious of her. Mostly out of what happened with Harumi.
Lloyd and the other Ninja are strolling through the magnificent gardens, and realize that Cole is missing.
Suddenly, Princess Vania appears from out of a tunnel in a frenzy, telling the Ninja that she went into the Dungeons with Cole and found something terrible. There's an underground mine filled with little creatures forced to mine by black skeletons. Cole stayed behind to rescue them and told her to get help.
The seven of them go to tell King Vangelis, and he is angry at his daughter for disobeying his orders, endangering their guests. He says that he'll send his guards down at once to find Cole, but he will not allow the Ninja to go. The Ninja realize that the creature that Cole saw in his bedroom was real all along.
The Ninja leave the throne room and make secret plans to enter the dungeons behind the King's orders. Vania agrees to show them the way into the dungeons, and she leads the way back to the garden.
Wu agrees to stay behind with Vania, feeling as though he'll slow the rest of them down. The Ninja enter the cave and find that Vania was telling the truth. Zane detects simple weapons and crude fortifications from the skeletons, and the others suggest that they bust up the bags of bones, and rescue Cole nice and quickly.
They all agree, and steal the keys to Cole's cage, and free him at last. In order to delay their capture, Zane blocks an entrance off for the skeletons with his shuriken. Cole tells them to keep the volume down, as there's a winged masked man who lives in the temple in the center.
The two tribes of creatures that live in the dungeons, the Geckles and Munce, start to quarrel with each other, causing a ruckus. This alerts the Awakened Warriors, who begin to attack the Ninja. Lloyd orders Jay and Nya to take our the warriors, while the rest of them run away. Zane and the others are in shock, watching the Geckles and Munce call each other "blade stealers." Meanwhile, the Ninja find that the Awakened Warriors go down without much trouble.
While trying to defend themselves, Zane realizes that his Elemental Powers are no use in the dungeons.
All the commotion causes the masked man to exit his temple. The man reveals himself as the Skull Sorcerer, a masked man in a black gown with wings, wielding a glowing green skull. The Skull Sorcerer uses the green skull in his hands to awaken the black skeletons around him, overwhelming the Ninja, leading to their defeat and eventual capture.
Lloyd and the other Ninja are put to work by the Awakened Warriors, forced to mine heaping amounts of Vengestone, which explains their inability to use their powers.
Gliff explains that long ago, a hero named "Gilly" (who the Munce argues was named "Milly,") entered the mountain with two blades to defend the Geckles and Munce from a terrible dragon known as Grief-Bringer (who the Munce argues was called "Mief-Bringer.") After defeating the dragon, "Gilly" left behind her blades as gifts to the Geckles and Munce — leaving the Ivory Blade of Deliverance to the Geckles, and the Shadow Blade of Deliverance to the Munce.
The two tribe's feud started when the Munce apparently stole their blade, however, the Munce argues that the Geckles were the ones that stole the blade. The Ninja come to the conclusion that it was actually the Skull Sorcerer who stole both blades, in order to get control over both tribes. While the tribes fight over themselves, they can't fight the Skull Sorcerer.
Lloyd puts together a plan to get the two tribes to make a truce so they can all break out. Word is passed around through Geckles and Munce about a secret meeting after lunch, and when the time comes, they discuss retrieving both Blades by defeating the Skull Sorcerer.
Later, the Ninja break out of their cages by getting a Minos to eat through their chains. The Ninja split up, while Cole and Lloyd attempt to find the two blades, Zane and the others go about releasing the remaining Geckles and Munce. A few minutes later, chaos ensues, as Cole and Lloyd are chased away by the Skull Sorcerer.
In the commotion, the Ninja are split up so that Jay, Nya, and Lloyd go one path, while Zane and Kai go down another. Cole is further separated from the group as he is chased by the Skull Sorcerer.
Lloyd, Nya, and Jay follow the Munce to their home, but Murt can't remember where it is. Nya spots footprints and they follow it.
The Ninja discover the beautiful cave and meet Queen Murtessa. She takes affection for Jay and thinks Nya is some sort of servant. Nya is furious at Murtessa and Lloyd tries to calm her down but also spots cave art depicting "Gilly" fighting a dragon.
The Ninja eat with Murtessa and she flirts with Jay. Nya gets angry at Murtessa saying she is her love interest and both stare down each other. Lloyd tries to calm everything down, but Murtessa challenges Nya to a duel and she accepts it.
Lloyd witnesses Nya get beaten up by Murtessa, but Nya is able to perform Spinjitzu and knocks out the queen. The rest of the Munce then declare her the new queen, and Lloyd realizes they have a new problem.
Lloyd watches as the Munce argue whether they should attend the truce meeting with the Geckles. Nya then gets the Munces' attention by using her Elemental Powers and forces the Munce to the meeting.
When they arrive, Lloyd and the Ninja try to settle everyone down after tensions rise between the two tribes. Suddenly, they hear the sound of Grief-Bringer and everyone but Zane and Lloyd flee. The remaining Ninja try to hold off Grief-Bringer, but he proves to be too strong as they also retreat.
The Ninja, Geckles, and Munce are running away from Grief-Bringer and decide to hide in the Geckle Strong-Cave.
When Nya and the Munce are trying to close the gate, Kai and the rest of the Ninja head out to buy time for them to close it. The Ninja perform Spinjitzu to defeat most of the Awakened Warriors, but they quickly rebuild themselves. Murtessa is able to break the chains to the gate and the Ninja retreat back in.
Tensions once rise between the two tribes as Gulch is upset that the Munce are in his shelter.
Even though both sides dislike each other, they both are fearful when Grief-Bringer and the Awakened Warriors attempt to tear down the gate. Nya recognizes a pile of rocks covering something and asks the Geckles and Munce to work together to remove the rocks. Kai marvels at their teamwork, and when they're done, he enters first. However, he discovers there's no other way out.
Murtessa and Gulch apologize to each other and Kai and Nya officially establish peace with the opposing tribes. At the same time, the Skull Sorcerer destroys the gate and is about to fight until the Ninja decide to surrender themselves and allow the Geckles and Munce to be free. The Skull Sorcerer agrees and the Ninja are taken away.
Lloyd and the Ninja are locked up in a cage and overlook the Geckles and Munce working in the mines.
The Skull Sorcerer approaches their cage and informs the Ninja they'll be destroyed by Grief-Bringer. Lloyd informs the Skull Sorcerer about Cole, but he reveals himself to be Vangelis. He tells the Ninja he disposed Cole and Wu into the heart of the mountain.
During the execution ceremony, Lloyd and the Ninja watch in fear as Grief-Bringer is about to be released, but he doesn't come out. Cole then shows himself and fights the Skull Sorcerer. The Ninja cheer him on and wish they could join the fight as well. While the Munces and Geckles are also fighting, Plundar and Adam free the Ninja so they could join the fight.
Lloyd continues to fight the Awakened Warriors alongside the Ninja, Upply, Munces, and Geckles. Despite being overwhelmed, they receive aid when Vania and the Winged Guards of Shintaro arrive as well.
After Cole unlocks the Spinjitzu Burst, Lloyd watches Vangelis being taken away by his former guards.
During the ceremony, Vania is declared queen of the Ivory City and she promises peace for everyone. After the ceremony is finished, the Ninja wave good-bye as they board the Bounty. Lloyd also took this time to apologize to Vania for his distrust towards her which she accepts.
Lloyd has long, blonde tousled hair, and brown arched eyebrows. His eyes are visibly green, and occasionally glow when he uses his powers. As of Season 8, Lloyd had grown up further and has an updated design and deeper voice. Lloyd is usually seen with a smirking expression. Whenever he loses access to his powers, his green eyes would return to their original black color.
Previously, Lloyd had thin eyebrows and normal eyes. Initially, Lloyd was a young boy with a "bowl-cut" hairstyle. After the Grundal incident exposed him to the aging effects of Tomorrow's Tea, Lloyd became a teenager with a slightly deeper voice and a new, tousled hairstyle.
As a child, he wore black clothing, a purple sash around his waist, with white rib-like markings on his shirt, resembling the appearance of his father, Lord Garmadon. However, the illusion is negated by Lloyd's normal-looking face and hands, as well as the small green number "5" on the upper left side of his shirt, that resembles he is the fifth, and the Green Ninja. While leaving Darkley's Boarding School for Bad Boys, Lloyd stole a black hood and cape to make his outfit look more menacing. After moving in with the Ninja, he wore it periodically, primarily during his time in the Serpentine's captivity. When his destiny as the Green Ninja was revealed, Lloyd mainly wore the green gi of the Chosen One. See here for Lloyd's appearances in other Ninja suits.
When possessed by Morro's spirit, Lloyd's hair darkens to black and his skin becomes pale with visible shadows surrounding his eyes, similar to Morro’s own appearance. His suit takes on more of a darker shade of green and has more black accessories including a hood. Between "Winds of Change" and "The Temple on Haunted Hill, he adorned the Allied Armor of Azure.
As of "Curseworld, Part I," Lloyd once again has civilian attire consisting of a green shirt, blue pants, and a dark green jacket with his dragon symbol on the back. He wears a black fedora with a green stripe with it in Season 6.
In Skybound, he was briefly turned into an old man after making a wish to Nadakhan to become "wise like Wu" in "Wishmasters," referencing Wu's remark to Morro in "Winds of Change," "with age comes wisdom." He became an elderly man with a similar appearance to his father and uncle, with white hair and increasingly more apparent wrinkles and age lines. This change was reversed as a result of Jay's wish, which caused the majority of events in Season 6 to be erased.
In "The Jade Princess," Harumi gives Lloyd a white hooded jacket to wear over his Ninja gi as a disguise.
In "The Gilded Path," Lloyd wears an outfit similar to what some of the fishermen in Ninjago City wear, after burning his Ninja suit. As Harumi called his appearance, "a beggar in rags."
In "Racer Seven," Lloyd wears his avatar in an attempt to disguise himself from the Red Visors. It consists of a green jacket with a right gold sleeve, unzipped to reveal his chest, green pants, gold boots, and a brown mohawk.
Physically, Lloyd is in his late adolescence, as the majority of his fellow Ninja. Currently, he is chronologically in his early teens, making him the youngest of the Ninja team.
Possible Estimations: Initially, Lloyd may have been a young boy of about 9–11 years old, 5–6 years younger than the Ninja. After using the Tomorrow's Tea to save his friends and destroy the Grundal, he was caught in the blast that reversed the Mega Weapon's de-aging spell. While the Ninja returned to their normal ages, Lloyd was aged into his teens along with them (who were at least 16 years old) but was still mentally a kid. As the most recent events take place three to four years after the events of Season 2, Lloyd is most likely chronologically 12–14 years old, though he would physically be around 19 like the other Ninja. Mentally, he's now close to the older Ninjas' ages.
- Main article: Lloyd (Relationships)
Lloyd is the wise young leader of the team and is fully dedicated to the way of the Ninja. Once a mischievous and easily distracted child, after becoming the Green Ninja, he has since grown into a quiet and mature person. He is deeply fond of his friends and family and will stop at nothing to defend them, even prioritizing their safety over his own. He is goodhearted and at times naive, making him an easy target of deception by his enemies. Despite being the youngest of the Ninja, he is one of the more calm and mellowed members of the group. He has been through much tragedy in his life but has taken it in stride and channels his losses into becoming a better Ninja—and eventually master.
Throughout his life, one constant of Lloyd's personality was his love for his father, Lord Garmadon. It was a desire to follow in his evil parent's footsteps that drove him to enroll in Darkley's School for Bad Boys—and later, to unleash the Serpentine upon Ninjago.
However, his attempts to become the next evil overlord of Ninjago were largely stymied by his inherently good personality—Lloyd's idea of "evil" was stealing candy, pulling pranks, and overseeing Ninjago from within a treehouse fortress, with his best attempt at an evil laugh being a rather melodramatic "Muhahahaha!" Lloyd's lack of true evil also showed in his demeanor around his Serpentine "minions;" he usually went along with whatever ideas they concocted, and was quick to call a retreat if the battle turned even slightly against his allies. He also displayed extreme naivety about their warlike society, expecting Skales to hand over the Hypnobrai Staff to Slithraa simply because the latter outranked him.
After being betrayed by Pythor and taking up residence on the Destiny's Bounty, Lloyd's true nature began to emerge. Having been turned from the path of evil by Master Wu's guidance, he turned his thoughts to stopping the Serpentine threat (partially out of guilt for releasing the first three tribes in the first place). He retained a mischievous streak for a time, but quickly grew out of it after being forced to clean up the messes his pranks left. He also dedicated his life to help the Ninja in any way he could, but his lack of combat talents and inexperience with battling the Serpentine meant that he was relegated to the ship during their missions. This desire to help led to Lloyd's capture when he blew his cover at the City of Ouroboros.
The revelation that he was destined to become the Green Ninja further increased Lloyd's eagerness to help—to his chagrin, this only meant that the Ninja had even less incentive to take him on missions. He was also forced to confront the fact that he was now destined to fight his father, Lord Garmadon, for the fate of Ninjago, causing him to alternate between regret and hostility towards the four-armed villain. Despite this, Lloyd continued to love his father, being saddened when Lord Garmadon had to leave the ship for good.
Lloyd underwent his most dramatic personality shift yet when he was aged to a teenager by Tomorrow's Tea. He became much more serious and calm than before, dedicating himself to his training and becoming a true aspect of the Ninja team. However, his misgivings about confronting his father only grew stronger, forcing Master Wu and Misako to constantly remind him that he had no choice. Despite this, Lloyd was unable to overcome his love for his father, leading to him failing to destroy Lord Garmadon when the latter was vulnerable. It was only when the Overlord took complete control of Garmadon's body was Lloyd able to discard his misgivings and access his full power.
After the battle with the Overlord, he became somewhat cocky about his abilities, and after being made a fool of while sparring with his father in front of a class and his fellow Ninja, he nearly unleashed an energy blast on him in anger, but quickly calmed down. He was at first reluctant to learn how to further harness his power over the elements, but eventually, he became more willing to listen to his father's teachings after having to use his power to save him.
Upon his search for Zane alongside his friends, he underwent yet another dramatic change that would shape his fate: the role of becoming a leader. Even when the others were down from either loss or current circumstances, he always rallied them with supporting words that gave them newfound strength to continue on and, eventually, succeed. This quality came to the point of leading both the Elemental Masters and the Serpentine against Chen's forces in the Second Serpentine War, which then sprung a new challenge of his role being tested by Morro. Ultimately, after receiving some final words of wisdom from his father, he let go of what remained of his childish desires and embraced his chosen path of becoming a wise and powerful master, like his father before him.
A year after Wu's disappearance at the end of the battle against the Time Twins, Lloyd fully settled into being leader, with the addition of taking over the role of the Ninjas' master.
Being betrayed by Harumi caused Lloyd no small amount of grief. Being the kind person he is, it is rare for Lloyd to be cold to someone. He made an exception for Harumi, however, as is shown when he glared at her after she attempted to trick him and as he closed the police transport van doors on her in "Dread on Arrival."
Lloyd was heartbroken when he assumed that Kai, Zane, Jay, Cole, and Wu were killed by the Colossus, shedding a few tears. But, refusing to give in to despair as Harumi intended, he remained determined to defeat the Sons of Garmadon and avenge his friends and uncle.
Losing his Elemental Power made Lloyd begin to doubt his usefulness to Ninjago, and to the Resistance. Luckily, with Nya's encouragement and the hope of seeing Zane, Cole, Kai, Jay, and Wu again, Lloyd has seemingly overcome this doubt. Skylor's powers returning also gave Lloyd hope that his own would come back, and that is something Lloyd looks forward to.
Initially, Lloyd had no outstanding combat skills, being about as strong as a boy his age with no special training. His flair for dramatics and minor knowledge of Ninjago history allowed him to cow the public with bombastic threats and harmless tricks, but he proved helpless against enemies like the Ninja or the Serpentine, relying on strokes of luck and opportune distractions to get away from them unscathed. After joining the Ninja aboard the Destiny's Bounty, Lloyd revealed a flair for pranks and video games, beating all of Kai's high scores in "Fist to Face 2" and nearly bringing the Ninja to blows by pranking each of them and blaming another Ninja.
After his destiny as the Green Ninja was revealed, Lloyd began developing some capability in hand-to-hand combat. However, his overenthusiastic approach to training and lack of a dedicated mentor (as the Ninja were concentrating on stopping the Serpentine from unleashing the Great Devourer) prevented him from becoming much of a threat to his enemies. However, Lloyd occasionally used his lack of skill to his advantage, tricking enemies into complacently mocking his wild posturing until his more powerful allies could join the fight (to allow himself to save the four Ninja).
Lloyd's skills began advancing more rapidly after the Ninja defeated the Great Devourer and secured Dareth's dojo as a training site. He developed the ability to use Spinjitzu, enhanced fighting abilities, and a burgeoning ability to control all four elements. However, he did not come into his own until after being aged to a teenager, after which he gained the physical skill and mental focus to truly begin applying himself to his training.
By the time the Stone Army surfaced, Lloyd had grown significantly in all aspects of his fighting skill. In addition to a much more controlled Spinjitzu and far greater mastery of the elements, the Green Ninja had developed a tactical mind that allowed him to gain the upper hand against foes such as the Giant Stone Warrior. His powers were enhanced even further after the empowerment ritual in the Temple of Light, allowing him to overcome Lord Garmadon's Samurai Mech with a single beam.
When he became the Ultimate Spinjitzu Master, Lloyd's powers reached their full devastating potential. He gained the ability to levitate in mid-air, incredible strength that allowed him to knock around the far larger Overlord, and the ability to summon the Golden Dragon from pure light energy. At the end of his battle with the Overlord, he charged his powers within the villain's supersized mouth, creating an explosion of light that utterly obliterated the dark dragon.
After losing his Golden Power to the Overlord and dividing the rest with the other Ninja, it left Lloyd with just the power of Energy at a significantly weaker state, yet still stronger than the other main elements. It is also Lloyd's true Elemental Power.
Halfway through the fourth season, in Spellbound, Lloyd unlocked (or summoned for the first time onscreen) his Energy Dragon. The dragon allows him to travel quickly through the air and shoot large blasts of Energy that deal devastating damage.
From Season 5 onward, Lloyd can perform Airjitzu along with the other Ninja.
In "Big Trouble, Little Ninjago," after fighting with his father after Garmadon gained his True Potential, Lloyd lost his powers, leaving him vulnerable. However, his powers are restored in "Green Destiny."
On a far lesser note, Lloyd also seems to be somewhat skilled at sewing, assisting his fellow students in creating several Ninja garbs in "Double Trouble." On a more negative note, he cannot perform or imitate voices or accents as revealed in "Wishmasters."
In the series, from the first to the fourth season, Lloyd rarely used any weapons; his younger self tended to stay behind the front lines while his allies (first the Serpentine, then the Ninja) did the fighting. After becoming a Ninja, he briefly wielded a Nin-Jô staff against Pythor in "The Rise of the Great Devourer," but generally remained out of direct combat. His older self-continued to favor Spinjitzu, martial arts, and his elemental powers in battle, but he also briefly commanded the Golden Mech after its discovery in the Temple of Light. During his final battle with the Overlord, Lloyd also summoned the Golden Dragon to aid him in pursuing the villain to the skies.
In season four, Lloyd used shurikens in a training battle against Nindroids, and he used a Jadeblade in a round of Thunderblade when he was fighting Chamille in the Tournament of Elements. Lloyd then wielded the Sword of Sanctuary in "Curseworld, Part ll" and used it to fight Morro in the other realms. In "Day of the Departed," Lloyd wielded a Golden Katana to battle Pythor and wielded it again when he was about to attack Morro. In Season 7, Lloyd started using weapons more often. He wielded regular Katanas most of the time in the entire season when he was battling the Vermillion and had wielded Bowie Knives in the episode "Scavengers." In Season 8, he uses a Sword with a curved blade, similar to his movie counterpart. In "Green Destiny," he briefly uses the Dragonbone Blade.
In LEGO sets, Lloyd wields a variety of weapons. His younger self had a variety of interesting and debilitating weapons—such as the Blinding Staff, the Double-Bladed Axe, and the Spear of Forked Tongues—but he generally favored the Golden Viper and the Golden Bolt. His teenage form wielded the Super Bolt, but also wielded a Nin-Jo and both silver and golden katanas. As the Golden Ninja, Lloyd generally used an ornate golden sword resembling the Sword of Fire.
Lloyd has owned many vehicles in his history as a Ninja.
- Ultra Dragon
- Golden Dragon
- Energy Dragon
- When Lloyd conquered his fears, he could summon it at will.
- It first appeared in "Spellbound."
- Golden Cycle
- Lloyd can summon this at will with his elemental power.
- It first appeared in "The Curse of the Golden Master."
- Racing Bike
- Jungle Raider
- Ninja Nightcrawler
- Golden Mech
- Lloyd's Titan Mech
- Destiny's Shadow
- In his original Character Card (Card 25), Lloyd's dominant element was listed as Lightning, though according to Tommy Andreasen, this isn't canon to the TV series. Coincidentally, however, he was shown using the Nunchucks of Lightning in Zane's dream in "Never Trust a Snake" and why the Golden Weapons made green lightning when they revealed that he was the Green Ninja. It also parallels Lord Garmadon, his father, whose Destruction is represented as lightning on the cards and who was shown to be able to generate lightning in the Green Ninja episode.
- Lloyd's role as a hero is foreshadowed by the small green "5" on the black shirt he wears in his early appearances. The color of the "5" refers to his destiny as the Green Ninja, while the number itself refers to how he will be the fifth member of the Ninja team.
- Initially, Lloyd is a mediocre pilot, as seen when he has to fly the Destiny's Bounty in "All of Nothing" and "The Rise of the Great Devourer." He seems to have improved following his training as the Green Ninja, as he can control the Ultra Dragon and his own Energy Dragons with ease.
- Lloyd's original teenage form is almost exactly that as Garmadon's younger form; except his hairpiece is blond instead of dark brown. Ironically his child form is almost exactly like Wu's child form with the difference being their face.
- Lloyd was kicked out of Darkley's Boarding School indicating he was perhaps never cut out to be a dark mastermind and hinting at his heroic role in the future.
- Lloyd is the official leader of the Ninja, succeeding Kai and Cole, who led the team before Lloyd's arrival.
- He most likely took on the role of leader sometime during or after Season 3.
- Lloyd's elemental symbol is the Chinese character "斗," meaning "fight." The only exception was during his time as the Golden Ninja when his robes donned a different symbol, the medallion that helped the Ninja find the Temple of Light.
- Lloyd's first name is a pun on his father's "Lord" title.
- Lloyd's Rebooted description may be a reference to the supplementary comic Night of the Nindroids, in which Lloyd really does throw a ball through a tree trunk.
- Lloyd always appears with the Oni Mask of Hatred in the Season 8 sets.
- However, he doesn't appear in 5005257 NINJAGO Minifigure Collection, which features Harumi with the Oni Mask of Hatred, though the mask has different printing in that set.
- He is the only mortal to be sent to the Cursed Realm without being cursed himself. What is more, he is the only person to have returned alive.
- He is the fifth Ninja to be presumed dead (in "Endings"), the first being Zane (in "The Titanium Ninja"), the second being Cole (in "Day of the Departed"), and the third and fourth being Kai and Jay (both in "Big Trouble, Little Ninjago").
- He has Oni and Dragon blood like his father, uncle, and grandfather.
- Lloyd's love interest as of Season 8 was Harumi, but she was later revealed to be evil. It is implied that Lloyd still had feelings for her as he looked saddened by her death.
- The other Ninjas' (except Nya's) Elemental Powers are dependent on Lloyd. Meaning that when Lloyd loses his Elemental Power, the other Ninja do too. This may be because he shares his Golden Powers with them. However, Tommy Andreasen said that it is possible that as of Season 8, this is no longer the case because Lloyd is getting older and his powers are getting stronger and more independent, and that is why after losing his powers in Season 8, the other Ninjas' powers are still working.
- Tommy Andreasen stated that at this point (after dispersing his Golden Powers), Lloyd is around 20% more powerful than the other Ninja.
- The father-son relationship between Lloyd and his father Garmadon is quite similar to that between Luke Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker.
