At the royal manta races, I'd place all my pearls on Undersea Biscuit.

Manta rays are large rays that live in Merlopia. They are used by the Merlopians to ride through Merlopia and the rest of the Endless Sea.


The Tale of Benthomaar (flashback)

Trimaar and Kalmaar use the rays when passing around a sunken ship, years later. Kalmaar and Benthomaar use them to venture the Tartarus Trench, though Bentho is knocked off of his.


When the ninja, P.I.X.A.L., and Maya were traveling to the Tartarus Trench, the manta rays attacked them by shooting the Hydro Bounty, causing it to sink.

Long Live the King

Maraay Guards use the manta rays to surround and capture the ninja.

Escape from Merlopia

Kalmaar and his guards use them to chase the ninja throughout Merlopia.

The Storm Amulet

Kalmaar uses a manta ray to escape and get to Ninjago City.

Master of the Sea

A manta ray was used by a Maaray Guard to throw Kai, Ray and Cole off Ninjago Harbor. Later on, the manta ray attached to Kalmaar's chariot was used to help Kalmaar escape with the Storm Amulet.

Some manta rays were seen in the palace's hangar bay when the Time Twins and Wu warped there.

Specific manta rays


  • Torpedoes: The manta rays are equipped with missile launchers that shoot fast and powerful torpedoes by the press of a button.
  • Speed: Manta rays are relatively quick traveling in the ocean.
  • Saddle: Manta rays have saddles that allow Merlopians to ride on them.
  • Electrokinesis/Fulgurkinesis (non-canon) - Due to being represented as stingrays, the manta rays can create, generate, increase, absorb, conduct, shape, and manipulate electricity of various intensities, stunning their opponents.[1]

Video games


  • They are called through a clicking sound made by Merlopians using their mouths.[2]
  • They participate in royal manta races, likely a reference to horse racing.
    • One manta ray is named "Undersea Biscuit", which is a reference to a real racing horse named "Seabiscuit".
