|“He made me who I am today. He was my father. He was my adversary. But in the end, he was my friend.”|
|— Lloyd, The Corridor of Elders|
Lloyd's father loved him very much since the day he was born. Lloyd idolized him and even dreamed of being just like his father by becoming a super villain, but his father didn't want his son to be like him, instead he wanted Lloyd to be his own person. When Lloyd finds out he was the Green Ninja, he was sad that he had to face his father and vice versa. When Garmadon was purified of evil, Lloyd was happy that he was finally reunited with his dad and the two used this as an opportunity to spend time with each other.
When dealing with the Overlord, Garmadon came to his son's aid with no hesitation telling Pythor who brought up his oath of not fighting that when he stole his son all promises were broken.
When Lloyd was about to go off to Chen's Island with his friends to find Zane, Garmadon tried to stop him but joined him on his journey. It was there that Lloyd learned some shocking details about his father's past, namely that Chen was his master and his father had signed a love letter that written by his uncle which caused his mother to fall in love with him. Lloyd was surprised but persuaded his father to tell Wu and Misako about his past after he admitted his fear of losing them after he got both of them back in his life. Lloyd was also sad that his father turned into Anacondrai but the latter told him he was on his side no matter what and Lloyd was quick to stop Jay from attacking Garmadon after he mistook him for Anacondrai cultist. Before the battle with Chen, Lloyd noticed Wu and Misako shunning Garmadon, asking if they knew about the letter as Garmadon sadly confirmed it. When fighting Chen's forces he was openly against the idea of having to banish his father to the Cursed Realm defeat Chen but relented and personally banished him to see him off though was sad at the outcome.
In "Curseworld, Part II," Lloyd was reunited with his father while traversing the Cursed Realm and attempted to free him but to no avail. Lloyd was distraught when he realized that to defeat the Preeminent he'd have to sacrifice his father who told him no matter what he'll always be a part of him. After the defeat of the Preeminent, Lloyd returned from the Cursed Realm and stated his father was in a better place. On "Day of the Departed," Lloyd and his mother pay their respects before Pythor attacked them and while fighting the Ancondrai, he realized that no matter what, Garmadon would always be there for him.
During Season 8: Sons of Garmadon, Lloyd learned that that a criminal organization intended to resurrect his father but as his villainous self. This caused him to feel conflicted over seeing his father again but dealing with a threat to everyone.
When Lloyd saw his father resurrected as his villainous self, he was horrified but believed that his father was still in there deep down despite others telling him that he was gone. Lloyd left his friends and confronted his father, they fought and Garmadon showed no mercy to him, even stating he had no son.
In Season 9, Lloyd formed a resistance against him. In "Radio Free Ninjago," the two nearly came face to face again but Skylor hid his presence. It was seen in that episode that Lloyd was still haunted from his last fight with his father, since it was the reason he lost his powers. Lloyd nearly lost his composure when making a broadcast but soon regained strength and personally challenged his father.
In "The Gilded Path," Lloyd encountered his father once more and was nearly killed by the Colossus. However, Lloyd pleaded to his father at not doing so and Garmadon relented, marking the first time he had shown hesitance after his revival. This reluctance allowed Lloyd to escape his grasp and stare at his father in confusion to why he spared him.
During "Green Destiny," Lloyd confronted his father with Wu who had returned and they fought as Garmadon declared them as his enemies. Lloyd's pleas for him to come to his senses fall on deaf ears, as Garmadon has no intention of reforming. When on the brink of certain doom, Lloyd uses Garmadon's overconfidence and will to fight against him by baiting him in to prolonging the battle. Lloyd soon suddenly realizes that if Garmadon was fueled by the fight then he must stop fighting in order to defeat him. He manages to resist his father long enough for the latter to lose his power and for Lloyd to regain his own. Showing mercy, Lloyd refused to strike Garmadon down permanently, instead insisting that the fight was over. Before going to prison, Garmadon warned Lloyd that now that he was powerless, there was nothing that could stop Ninjago from being overcome by the approaching darkness. Despite no longer trusting his father, Lloyd heeded his words about the darkness, and feared the coming of the Oni.
In "The Darkness Comes," Lloyd heeds his father's call to Kryptarium Prison and he is once again reproached by his father for his lack of belief in the incoming darkness, which makes Lloyd more alarmed. He still refuses to let him out at first but still acknowledges Garmadon as his father. He later changes his mind and frees him.
In "Into the Breach," Lloyd is frustrated by how he has to "babysit" his own father but puts up with him and cordially introduced him to the Ninja's sleeping room. He looked sad when seeing the picture between him and his father and despite being furious when his father destroyed it, he still couldn't throw the picture away and returned it to its place gently and stared at it once again sadly. Although Lloyd continues to mistrust his father and refuses to allow him to go armed and without him, he ultimately decides to trust his father and they work together. Lloyd saw at one point a hope that his father was still there but was frustrated by how Garmadon denied it yet perplexed when Garmadon laughed truly.
In "The Fall," Lloyd and Garmadon fight side-by-side effectively against the Omega but they are both overwhelmed by the leader of the Oni and Garmadon admonished Lloyd for being able to defeat him but faring poorly against their enemy. Lloyd shared a banter with his father upon destroying the Realm Crystal until learning to their horror that the Oni will still invade. Lloyd still follows his father's commands and they successfully escape the situation, but at the cost of Cole. Lloyd is furious at his father for his lack of care for Cole's death and walks off in anger.
In "Endings," Lloyd shows concern when Garmadon gets overpowered by the Omega and drags him to safety despite the danger to himself. Lloyd also trusted Garmadon to help them in conjuring the Tornado of Creation, stating that while Garmadon may not be a Ninja, he is still as much of a part of Ninjago's history as the rest of them.
Misako is Lloyd's mother. They care a lot about each other throughout the series. Lloyd did not know his mother when he was young but in Season 2, when he was reunited with Misako he was initially hostile towards her for her supposed abandoning of him. But after finding out her reason was to protect him and save his father, he ultimately forgave her and the two became closer in future seasons.
In Season 5, when Lloyd was possessed by Morro, Misako was desperate to get her son back stating she wasn't going to lose him just as she lost her husband. After Lloyd was freed of his possession, Misako was happy to have her son back and consoled him after the defeat of the Preeminent which led to his father's demise.
While fighting Nadakhan, Lloyd was sad at the thought of his mother being one of the Djinn's victims. On the Day of the Departed, Lloyd and his mother payed their respect to Garmadon and Lloyd defended his mother from Pythor when he attacked them.
During Season 8: Sons of Garmadon, Lloyd mentioned his mother going off on her own to find Wu but he didn't know where she was and seemed worried for her.
They were reunited in "Dread on Arrival" and Lloyd discovered Misako had found Wu before she was captured by the Sons of Garmadon. He was very angry at seeing her situation and wanted her released before the ritual took place.
Wu is Lloyd's paternal uncle and Master. Lloyd and the other Ninja care about Master Wu greatly and are glad to have him as their teacher. Wu looked after Lloyd when he was little, and Lloyd loves and respects Wu as his uncle and Master.
During Season 7, Lloyd and his friends came to Wu's aid when he fought Acronix and was distraught as Wu was wounded by the villain. In "Scavengers," Lloyd was sad that he might have failed his uncle when he needed help fighting Acronix, and Lloyd wanted to make sure he doesn't fail him again, so he looked after him when he was injured and continued to work harder in his training to become a master. When Lloyd infiltrated the Time Twins' base, he went out of his way to save the captive Wu but lost him to the Vermillion. When Wu was lost in time with the Time Twins, the Ninja made Lloyd their master and he said his first order as their master was to get rid of the time blade and find out where Wu was.
During Season 8, he was unknowingly reunited with his uncle when he came back as a baby. Lloyd was unaware of this until Harumi betrayed him and revealed this fact to him, and he couldn't believe his uncle was the infant the whole time.
After he was reunited with his friends, Lloyd spent more time with Wu and wondered when he would return to normal.
When Garmadon attacked the city, Lloyd protected his infant uncle from harm and refused to let Harumi take him.
In the Season 8 finale, Lloyd was under the impression that his uncle was dead and unaware he was in another realm. In "Firstbourne," Lloyd was still sad at losing his uncle and was unable to focus in his training. However, he learned that he had been instead teleported to somewhere after he and the others found a piece of a leaf for Traveler's Tea. During "Iron & Stone," Lloyd was informed that his uncle was sent to the Realm of Oni and Dragons.
In "Green Destiny," Lloyd was reunited with his uncle and was amazed that he is almost back to normal and surprised at his new armor. Wu also assured Lloyd that while he may not have power, he would still fight beside him against Garmadon, making Lloyd happy. Wu helped his student in fighting his father before he was forced out of the fight. Wu was later happy to see Lloyd has regained his powers and defeated Garmadon in battle. At the end, Lloyd was happy that his uncle had returned to normal and they celebrated saving the city. Wu also acknowledged Lloyd as a Master and gave him some advice about perfection of the world and how they mustn't give up before discussing an impending danger.
|“You're the First Spinjitzu Master.”|
The First Spinjitzu Master is Lloyd's grandfather, who died long before he was born. Though he never met him, Lloyd respected him for his great skill. During Season 8, he discovered that he was partially Oni and Dragon because of him.
In Season 10, after Lloyd, the Ninja, his father, and uncle form the Tornado of Creation to defeat the Oni, he appeared in an unknown place and finally meets his grandfather. Lloyd knelt before him in respect and awe, to which the First Spinjitzu Master helped him to his feet and said there was no need for kneeling. The Master was very grateful to Lloyd for helping to defeat the Oni, and for all that he's done for the world he created. He gave Lloyd the choice to either return to Ninjago and forget their meeting ever happened, or go with him to somewhere he will be happy. The two appeared to nearly touch hands, but then Lloyd awoke in Ninjago.
Lloyd developed an interest in princess Harumi in Season 8. When he first saw her, Lloyd was amazed by her appearance which earned him teasing from his teammates, to his dismay. Later on, he got acquainted with her and they bonded to the extent where Lloyd could call her "Rumi" instead of princess. They also saw they had similar backgrounds and having a destiny they didn't want laid out for them.
The two also stood next to each other when they were in the same room, and often made physical contact (Lloyd was often seen with his arm around Harumi, and Harumi was often seen holding onto Lloyd's arm). The two were also often seen smiling more when in each other's presence.
In "Dead Man's Squall," they were talking about their parents on the Bounty, and they told each other that they weren't alone and that they would always be there for the other. They had almost kissed in this episode before Lloyd made an excuse and left. Later in the episode, they helped save each other.
After he realized she is the Quiet One, he felt betrayed as she played on his emotions by deriding him for not being a proper savior, as well as telling him that his uncle was the infant the Ninja have. Harumi fought Lloyd and stated in the fight that she wanted to resurrect Lloyd's father so she could watch Garmadon destroy him.
In "Dread on Arrival," she had him imprisoned as well as his abducted mother. After Lloyd told her that their conflict was between them, she coldly told him there was never anything between them, leaving him heartbroken. Harumi further threw hurtful words at Lloyd as she gloated over his helpless predicament, as he was shocked by her true persona. After the Ninja came to his rescue and interrupted the ceremony, Lloyd watched as Harumi and her followers were arrested. He felt guilty that the events happened because he trusted Harumi and swore not to put too much trust in anyone again.
As Harumi was put in the back of a transport van, Lloyd stopped to speak with her. She tried to manipulate Lloyd again, telling him that he was right that this wasn't her. Enlightened by her betrayal, he immediately saw through the lie, and told her to stop, using her previous words against her. Enraged, she tried to charge at him, but he coldly closed the doors on her, to her shock. Lloyd then watched as she was driven away with a serious look on his face.
They met again when Garmadon attacked the city, she confronted him and he told her actions were no different from the Great Devourer attack but she ignored him and chased him as he escaped with Wu. Unlike before, she offered him a chance to join her organization but he refused her offer and the two fought for awhile although Lloyd seemed reluctant to hit her and instead twisted her arms behind her back until he managed to get away, much to her fury. Harumi held Lloyd by the throat and made him watch as the Ninja were "killed" by the Colossus but this time she didn't try to kill him (even though she had the chance). Instead, she put him down on the top of the tram carefully, which suggests that she may have actually liked him enough to not kill him. However, she was angry by his escape and screamed in fury.
In "Firstbourne," when she reported to Garmadon that Lloyd still hadn't been caught, she was opposed to his plan to use Colossus to draw him out and suggested sending Mr. E instead.
During "Radio Free Ninjago," when Lloyd made his speech to Ninjago of rebelling, Harumi was angry to see him again and tried using a recording of his loss against his father to stop him. Her attempts had nearly succeeded but he overcame it and continued speaking. She and Killow barged in, only to find them gone. She was furious at his escape but realized the location of their base after seeing garbage trucks drive away.
During "How to Build a Dragon," Harumi was nearly killed by Garmadon but saved herself by revealing the location of Lloyd and the resistance. This also hints that she might have liked him as she did not report to Garmadon about the hideout immediately.
In "The Gilded Path," Lloyd faced her again and he was shocked to see Harumi before she overwhelmed him in battle but he was saved by his friends and escaped her grasp.
In "Two Lies, One Truth" they met him again while she was confident in defeating him, she was dismayed to see he had tricked her and she ended up captured by Lloyd and the rest of the resistance.
During "Saving Faith," Lloyd witnessed her trying to escape the Colossus and they shared a gaze at the other. Harumi's facial expression seemed to symbolize she had understood his words about having someone endure the same fate she had before she died trying to save the life of a boy and his parents who would’ve met the same fate as her. Lloyd looked on in pity and faintly said her name as the building she was on collapsed.
Pythor manipulated Lloyd to get his hands on the map to the Serpentine tombs. Pythor later allied himself with The Overlord to get vengeance on Lloyd for letting The Great Devourer eat him. When capturing him, Lloyd was shocked to see Pythor's new look and the latter blamed him for it.
During the Second Serpentine War, Pythor wasn't pleased to see Lloyd again but had no choice but to help the Ninja. Lloyd even protected Pythor from Chen's forces and Pythor gave the Ninja a spell that would banish Chen and his followers. By doing this, Pythor became a temporary ally to the Ninja, despite the spell banishing Garmadon too.
During "Day of the Departed," Pythor fell back into his evil ways and decided to use the events of the day to destroy Lloyd. They fought and Pythor used underhanded moves such as holding Lloyd's mother hostage but Lloyd and his mother broke free and Pythor disappeared into the night.
Lloyd and The Overlord were fated enemies, as the prophesied Green Ninja and Dark Lord respectively. The Overlord hated Lloyd for being the grandson of the First Spinjitzu Master and sought to destroy him. In return, Lloyd personally hated The Overlord for corrupting his friends and father to serve him and defeated him during the Final Battle.
Due to Pythor, The Overlord returned to try to steal Lloyd's golden powers to become the Golden Master. However, Zane made the final move and sacrificed him to protect his friends and freed Lloyd of being victim to the threat.
Lloyd entered his tournament after hearing Zane was on his island. Lloyd later learned Chen was his father's old master and was surprised to learn this.
Lloyd began to view Chen as an enemy, once seeing him take the Elemental Powers of Karlof and wanted to stop him in his tracks.
Lloyd also learned that Chen was indirectly responsible for his birth after he learned the villain gave his father the love letter Wu had wrote to his mother.
Lloyd was lured into facing Chen when Kai feigned allegiance to him. In their battle, Chen used his staff to hold the advantage of the Green Ninja and defeated him effortlessly. Chen also couldn't help in rubbing in on holding Lloyd's fate to his father. Chen stripped Lloyd of his power and prepared to complete his spell however, Kai revealed his ruse and Lloyd regained his powers. Along with his friends, he fought against Chen's forces. He grew to detest him when learning Chen manipulated the humans and Serpentine into fighting each other, in order to benefit himself.
Lloyd defeated Chen after he banished his father and freed the spirits of the Anacondrai Generals and they cursed Chen and his followers.
|“You coward! You liar! I don't know how you tricked Zane into believing you, but he'll see through you eventually. He'll see what you are!”|
|— Lloyd to Vex|
Lloyd sees Vex as an enemy for manipulating Zane.
In "My Enemy, My Friend," they meet formally when Vex had Boreal spare Lloyd after he was defeated and brought before his master. He was present when Lloyd awoke and was shocked to learn that the Ice Emperor's true identity as Zane.
In "A Fragile Hope," Lloyd realized Vex had something to do with Zane's condition when the latter called him a liar and requested permission to destroy Lloyd after he tries to get through to Zane and take his staff but is forced to watch him be imprisoned. Despite this, Vex relished in taunting Lloyd on having hope, while stating that Lloyd does not knowing the "many details" that could help get through to Zane. The Green Ninja was unaware of Zane's lost memories and states Zane will see him for the liar he is, though Vex cockily retorts he is the faithful advisor and tells Lloyd the shackles he's in will block his powers.
During "Once and for All," Lloyd's group were confronted by Vex. Lloyd was able to slip away while Vex confronted his allies.
In "Awakenings," Vex arrives to find Lloyd frozen by his master. Seeing this, he implored his master to destroy the Green Ninja. However when he hesitates, Vex tried to do the job himself while taunting Lloyd on his predicament in failing. He moved to destroy Lloyd until Zane regained his memories and stopped him by knocking them away.
