Cole recalls that the Prophecy of the Green Ninja was originally written by the scholars of Cloud Kingdom thousands of years ago.
Cole and Jay search for Master Wu at an ancient temple, where a dispute between them results in the monks chasing them out.
When Wu explains to the ninja that Spinjitzu is more than just spinning, kicking, and whipping, monks can be seen in the back, painting the Monastery Mural. When the ninja practice Spinjitzu later on, they collide into a monk carrying a tub full of golden paint, which drenches Master Wu and Kai.
A monk paints a picture of the Earth Driller, but Wu claims that it has no historical significance. After having a flashback of Cole riding his Earth Driller to Kryptarium Prison and defeating Killow and a Giant Stone Warrior, he tells him to keep it on.
As Kai, Jay, and Zane inspect the Monastery Mural, there are monks are walking by them.
A monk looks fearfully at Nya and Jay, who are making a deal to battle, with the loser doing the dishes. After Nya defeats Jay by slamming him against the mural wall, he throws down his paintbrush and glares at Jay.
Wu tells the story of how monks were in danger of highly aggressive predators, and in order to survive, they became faster, stronger, and more cunning, evolving into ninja.
In early seasons, simple brown cloaks with hoods are worn.
However, in the later seasons, their outfits bear more detail. One sleeve of the attire is missing, and a piece of fabric is slung around their shoulders. Both wear sandals.

The images on Monks need to be organized.
