“Morro may have been my first pupil, but he was also my greatest regret. Before he was a cursed spirit, it wasn't I who found him...but he who found me. My brother had just gone off to train under Master Chen, which gave me time to attempt my hand at teaching. Morro was the perfect student. He did everything that was ever asked of him.”
Wu to the ninja, "Ghost Story"

Morro was the last known Elemental Master of Wind, who believed he was destined to be the Green Ninja. Found by Master Wu when he was a child and trained as his master's first student, he became determined to prove destiny wrong after the Golden Weapons didn't choose him as the fabled savior. After leaving Wu in search of his destiny, Morro perished in the Caves of Despair while searching for the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master, and his spirit was banished to the Cursed Realm, as a result of his previous actions.

At the end of the Second Serpentine War, Morro had escaped from his imprisonment when Garmadon was banished to the Cursed Realm. Intending to find the Realm Crystal hidden in the First Spinjitzu Master's tomb, Morro possessed Lloyd Garmadon, as only a Spinjitzu Master could locate the tomb. He then embarked on a quest, during which he used the Allied Armor of Azure to conjure his allies from the Cursed Realm at will. After a long journey, Morro abandoned Lloyd’s body and obtained the Crystal, and freed his master in an effort to curse the Sixteen Realms. With The Preeminent in Ninjago, Morro fought Lloyd in a battle that traversed through various realms. When Nya unlocked her True Potential and incapacitated the beast, Morro was seized by one of its tentacles. Desperately, Wu attempted to save him, but Morro ultimately realized that he was beyond saving, prompting him to give Wu the Crystal before letting go of his hand, and falling into the sea and dissolving.

Months after his death, a statue of Morro was placed in the Ninjago Museum of History as part of the new Hall of Villainy exhibit. When Cole (lured by Yang) accidentally opened the Departed Realm using the Yin Blade, Morro's spirit escaped the realm and possessed the statue in the museum, resurrecting him once more. Upon hearing Yang's plan to have the other revived villains exact vengeance on their arch enemies, Morro set off to find Wu but rather than fight him, he instead told him of what was happening. Morro and Wu reunited with the ninja in the city, with the ninja heading for the Temple of Airjitzu while Morro's spirit peacefully returned to the Departed Realm of his own will after making amends with his master.


Early life

Morro found by Wu

A young Morro was found by Wu, while he and a few other children were rummaging through the monastery's trash bins. The other children ran off when they saw Wu, but Morro stayed. The young master took pity on the boy and gave him food, as well as offering to train him in the ways of the ninja. He was considered by Wu to be the perfect student as he undertook any obstacle that his master would throw at him.

Morro was eventually gifted a kite by Wu; by playing with it, Wu discovered that Morro was a descendant of an Elemental Master of Wind. Upon this revelation, Wu revealed that he believed Morro was to be the Green Ninja. Unfortunately, Morro became arrogant with the thought of having the Green Ninja's power, though he was dismayed to find that the Golden Weapons did not react with him, a sign that would indicate the true Green Ninja.

Morro's skeleton

The Master of Wind became obsessed with proving his master—and destiny—wrong, and left the monastery, declaring that he would never return until he found the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master, and in his journeys he committed multiple atrocities. Arriving at the ancient Library of Domu for answers, he discovered a passage referring to a "cave in the deep," and misinterpreting its meaning, he journeyed to the Caves of Despair, a mistake that would prove fatal; while exploring, he became trapped in a cave with a kethanol geyser and was presumably killed by the explosion.[1] His spirit was then banished to the Cursed Realm for his actions, where he pledged his service to the Preeminent.

Plotting to free his mistress and curse the Sixteen Realms, Morro came into contact with Fenwick, and the latter, fearing for his safety, agreed to assist the Cursed Realm by rewriting destiny so that Morro would be able to leave when given the chance to escape.


The Corridor of Elders

As Garmadon opened the portal to the Cursed Realm intending to unleash the Anacondrai generals, Morro was able to escape the dimension. While the ninja celebrated their victory after the Second Serpentine War, a small dark tornado appeared in the sky carrying Morro inside.


Winds of Change

Morro made his way to the Ninjago Museum of History where the Allied Armor of Azure was being kept. He possessed the Night Watchman, then called Steep Wisdom and requested for Lloyd to come.

When the true Green Ninja, his old Master's nephew, arrived at the museum, Morro—still in the body of the Watchman—led him to a back room where he attempted to attack him with a sledgehammer. The watchman was soon buried under several boxes and Morro left his body to possess several other things in the room, such as a portrait of Chen, a Serpentine statue, and a pile of sand. After weakening the Green Ninja, he took possession of Lloyd himself.

With the Allied Armor and the control of the Green Ninja's body, the ninja lost their powers, and Morro journeyed to Steep Wisdom to seek the Staff of the First Spinjitzu Master, now carried by his former Master. He faced the ninja for the first time, using his power of Wind to easily defeat them. Yet, before he was able to obtain the staff, Wu and the ninja escaped in the Destiny's Bounty. Undeterred, Morro summoned a corrupted version of Lloyd's Elemental Dragon to chase after them.

Ghost Story

Confronting the ninja.

Morro quickly caught up to the flying vessel and boarded it, defeating Cole and Jay with ease. He used Lightning to cripple the ship's autopilot and descended into its lower level where he defeated Zane. Morro almost succeeded in throwing Kai out of the vessel, though he was distracted when Wu threw his staff out the window. As it was Morro's true objective, he summoned his Elemental Dragon once again and used it to retrieve the staff.

Morro flew to a nearby tavern where he satisfied himself with a drink before interrupting a biker's pool game to decipher the message on the staff. Angered at Morro's action, the biker and his friends surrounded Morro, though the ghost used the Allied Armor to summon Wrayth, and the two defeated the bikers with ease. He then instructed the Chain Master to deal with the ninja while he located Master Yang's Airjitzu scrolls.

Upon arriving at the Ancient Library of Domu where the Airjitzu scroll was being kept, Morro was enraged to find that the thief, Ronin, had already stolen it and had fled to Stiix. He stormed out of the building, but not before he gave one of the guards his autograph and took a selfie with them.

Stiix and Stones

Morro soon arrived at a hill overlooking Stiix and summoned Soul Archer to aid him in his quest, as Lloyd was beginning to fight his possession. The two descended into the city and confronted Ronin at his shop. Unfortunately for Morro, the ninja arrived and Morro ordered Soul Archer to hide so they could locate the scroll. Once the ninja succeeded, Morro summoned several more ghosts and chased after Ronin, eventually claiming the Airjitzu scroll. He, in turn, was pursued by Kai though he used Airjitzu to ascend into the air where he summoned his Elemental Dragon and escaped.

The Temple on Haunted Hill

Morro used the Armor to release Bansha and Ghoultar from the Cursed Realm, hoping that they would be able to decipher the next symbol on the staff. Bansha revealed that it was the Sword of Sanctuary, kept hidden in the Cloud Kingdom, which was only accessible from the Blind Man's Eye. As the only way to reach the phenomenon was to ascend the Wailing Alps, Morro ordered his forces to the Samurai X Cave, intending to possess one of the ninja's mechs.

Yet, before they could take one of the mechs, the ghosts were ambushed by Nya in her Samurai Mech. While she was unable to damage the ghosts, the samurai succeeded in destroying the Allied Armor, thus destroying the way for Morro to summon reinforcements. Ghoultar quickly possessed the mech, however, turning it into Mech-enstein, and the ghosts chased Nya and Ronin from the cave. Unfortunately, it soon began to rain and the Master of Wind summoned his Elemental Dragon to head to the Wailing Alps.


Morro used the Mech-enstien to ascend the Wailing Alps, though at the same time Lloyd was growing stronger and fighting his possession. Upon realizing they were being followed by the ninja, Morro was encouraged to abandon Lloyd's body by his companions, though the Master of Wind reminded them that only a Spinjitzu Master could find the tomb. He did, however, allow Bansha to create an avalanche, and the ghosts continued their ascent.

As they neared the Hanging Temple, the ghosts discovered that the ninja had survived the avalanche and were climbing even faster. Morro abandoned the mech and ordered his allies to stop them while he continued climbing. Yet, even after calming the winds that plagued the mountain, Morro failed in reaching the Blind Man's Eye.

Kingdom Come

With his failure and Lloyd's continued resistance, Morro became increasingly agitated. However, Bansha quickly made contact with Fenwick, the head writer in the Cloud Kingdom, and made a deal with him to let them in a back way. Morro was shown to where the Sword of Sanctuary was kept and upon retrieving it, encountered the ninja. Due to being able to see their next move within the blade's reflection however, Morro was able to dodge their attacks and escape back to Ninjago. Yet the ninja followed, quickly catching up to them, and with Lloyd gaining control of his body momentarily, he lost the sword to Kai.

The Crooked Path

Morro and his ghost companions moved to Stiix were they took up residence in the remains of Ronin's pawn shop. Bansha then contacted the mercenary, ordering him to bring them the Sword of Sanctuary in exchange for his curse being removed.

Ronin soon arrived with the sword in hand and, after Ghoultar inspected it to make sure it wasn't fake, presented it to Morro. The Master of Wind used it to determine the location of the tomb, though he went behind Ronin's back and possessed him. With Ronin's body, he contacted the ninja and lead them on a false trail to the Caves of Despair, ironically this was likely because he perished there. After the message was sent, he left Ronin and taunted Lloyd by telling him to regain strength, as they will be leaving for the real location of the tomb.

Grave Danger

Taking possession of Lloyd once more, Morro journeyed to the tomb with the Sword of Sanctuary and passed the first two traps with ease. On the third trap, he eventually met up with the ninja and dueled with them. Soon, he was fooled by Kai and was trapped, but escaped his prison by leaving Lloyd’s body.

However, he caught up to the ninja at the First Spinjitzu Master's resting spot, holding an extremely weakened Lloyd in one arm and threatening to hurt him with his sword if they didn't give up the Realm Crystal. After a while of stalling, Kai intended to fool the ghost again, coming out as a success because of the ninja regaining their power and the plan only backfiring when Lloyd was sent plummeting into a river, drifting away and leaving the Fire Ninja and Cole to save him while Zane and Jay took care of Morro. The Master of Wind was too clever for them, however, and escaped with both the crystal and the sword in his hands. Morro then used the crystal to take himself along with Bansha and Soul Archer back to Stiix.

Curseworld, Part I

On New Year's day, Morro used the Realm Crystal to return to the city of Stiix, where he opened a portal to the Cursed Realm. After briefly conferring with the weapon masters about the Preeminent's status, he expanded the portal and ordered the Ghost Warriors to prepare the city for their master's arrival.

The ninja shortly arrived at the city of Stiix with Lloyd by their side to stop the Preeminent from crossing over to Ninjago.

The ghosts and Morro were alerted to the presence of the supposed Green Ninja, whom they caught with ease. The ghosts brought the Green Ninja to the center of town where Morro mocked it and pulled off the hood, only to discover that Nya—the Water Ninja—was underneath. Using his power of wind, Morro was able to repel her water attacks until he noticed Lloyd trying to sneak by. He confronted the real Green Ninja and—using the Sword of Sanctuary—was able to prevent him from reaching the Realm Crystal. However, Ronin arrived and distracted Morro by raining down his wealth, which allowed Lloyd to get inside the building and reach the Realm Crystal. Yet Morro managed to get inside before Lloyd destroyed it and delayed him by reminding him that destroying the crystal would ruin any chances of saving Garmadon. His delay worked as the Preeminent arrived and dragged Lloyd into the Cursed Realm.

Curseworld, Part II

Morro and Lloyd are now in Chima.

As The Preeminent emerged into Ninjago, Morro confronted his old master and captured Misako. Then he fought Ronin to get the Sword of Sanctuary back, but Lloyd showed up to get the Sword and battled Morro in other realms. Morro returned to Ninjago and trapped Lloyd in another realm.

Morro before his death.

Unfortunately for the Master of Wind, Nya unlocked her True Potential and sank The Preeminent. As the creature fell into the water, Morro used his wind to keep himself above the ocean, Wu arriving on his Elemental Dragon to help him. As he struggled to stay away from the water, he was soon grabbed by his master. Morro soon realized that his fate had been sealed, and handed his old master the Realm Crystal before sinking into the ocean and dissolving. With the Cursed Realm destroyed, Morro's spirit was sent to the Departed Realm.

Day of the Departed

A statue of Morro holding a replica of the Sword of Sanctuary was later included in the Ninjago Museum of History's Hall of Villainy on the Day of the Departed and was infused with Morro's spirit by the magic of Master Yang during the Yin-Yang Eclipse.

Morro resurrected.

Resurrected, Morro questioned the identities of the villains who were also brought back to life. After the villains gave their names, they wondered what brought them back to life before Morro pointed it was Yang's doing. Talking to the portrait Yang had possessed, the Airjitzu master informed Morro and his fellow former villains that they would be sent back to the Departed Realm at the conclusion of the eclipse unless they dispatched a foe with their weapons, the Departed Blades which would allow them to live again.

Morro quickly claimed Master Wu as his target, stating that they had left things unfinished. Morro then arrived at the Monastery of Spinjitzu where he snuck up behind his target before confronting Wu. Wu was surprised to see him again, but stated that while it pains him, he wouldn't hesitate to clash with his former pupil once again; however, Morro revealed that he didn't actually want to fight, and he proceeded to warn Wu of Yang's intentions, and how he made him forget Cole. Morro promised to tell Wu more information once they locate the other ninja with that the pair traveled back to the museum in the Bounty.

Morro's final farewell.

Upon encountering all of the ninja but Cole at the museum, Morro was confronted by his former foes, whose hostile reaction to his presence made him smirk. However, Wu quickly stopped them by informing the ninja that Morro was there to help, as they were surprised by this revelation. Morro then told them of Yang's plans and how they had forgotten Cole, leading the ninja to depart to help their friend. His mission accomplished, Morro was thanked by Wu and he wished his former master a happy holiday before returning to his place in the museum, where his mannequin took on its original pose. Morro's spirit left, going back to the Departed Realm at peace and redeemed.


Though redeemed, Morro remained an example of an adversary from the ninja's past.

Jay used his possession of Lloyd as an example of the bad things that happened when the team split up.[2]

Sometime after his demise, a statue of Morro was placed in the Ninjago Museum of History's Hall of Villainy exhibit.[3]

Morro appeared during a hallucination of Wu's, hatching out of a Vermillion egg clad in Vermillion armor and reminding Wu that he failed to prevent Morro from being consumed by arrogance.[4]

Lloyd mentioned Morro when naming some of Ninjago's greatest villains,[5] and Jay used Morro as an example of the villains that perished because they released a great evil.[6]

Morro (possessing Lloyd) as he appears in the Possession mural.

After the reconstruction of the Monastery of Spinjitzu, a mural was created, depicting the major historical events the ninja had faced. One part of the mural depicted the events of Possession, showing Morro while possessing Lloyd.[7]

Whilst Renzo and Kenzo explain the effects of Two Moon Tea to Garmadon, saying that the tea can the temporarily enhance the power of beings from other realms, Morro in possession of Lloyd's body is visualized as an example for ghosts.[8]


Morro's appearance consists of long jet black hair with a green streak in it. In battle, he keeps his hair tucked underneath his hood. He also has dark markings around his eyes that bear resemblance to those found on his corpse after his original death. He even possesses these markings while in control of another host body, with the exception of Ronin and the night watchman.


In his past, he was free-spirited and was shown to be rather patient up until Master Wu tested him. He is also seen to be jealous as well, as noted by his behavior while dueling Lloyd in the Museum, and his disgust and rage in confronting the one who attained his spurned, youthful dream of becoming the Green Ninja.

He also was very narrow-minded, focused, and determined. However, despite his gifts in strategy, his narrow-mindedness and inability to let go of anything was likely his greatest personal flaw. He was determined to prove destiny wrong after he was discovered to not be the Green Ninja. With his aggrandized sense of identity taken, Morro had taken out his disappointment in a state of denial and rage.

In his youth, he had a very close teacher-student relationship with Master Wu, which, while rather healthy and positive for them in the beginning, quickly took a nosedive after the revelation that Morro was not destined to be the Green Ninja, which caused Morro to become bitter and resentful, and caused him to abandon Wu and the Monastery. This also showcased Morro's determined and ambitious side, as well as his inability to cope with disappointment. Likewise, this seemingly caused him to later attempt to emulate Lloyd, the true Green Ninja, by frequently using his Elemental Dragon, appointing Weapon Masters that filled identical roles to the four ninja, and dressing in green clothing.

Morro's corrupted side.

He was also shown to be somewhat unstable in his inability to face failure. His failed dreams in his past life and attempts to live them out as a ghost show that his determination was limitless, although it had clearly driven him hopelessly insane. Likewise, Morro's massive insecurities and inner fears had left him incapable of abandoning his pursuit to be the Green Ninja and thus had prevented him from summoning his own Elemental Dragon as a result.

He was also shown to be manipulative, trying to buy time by telling Lloyd that his father still lives on in the Cursed Realm and that destroying the Realm Crystal would cost him his chance of saving his father. However, Morro used this information merely to stall the ninja until the Preeminent could drag Lloyd into the Cursed Realm herself. Morro was also pathologically incapable of letting go of a grudge. This is seen in his constant mocking of Lloyd and his references to his shattered dreams of becoming the Green Ninja. He blamed Wu and fate for this, and this attitude ultimately was what led him to his demise in the Caves of Despair.

Morro did show his regret for his actions at the end of "Curseworld, Part II." When Master Wu tried to save him from being pulled into the water, he refused, giving the Realm Crystal to Master Wu, parting with the words, "You can only save those who want to be saved . . . goodbye, Sensei." Once he was resurrected by Yang, he further showed he had learned his lesson in "Day of the Departed," where instead of going off to destroy one of his old enemies like his fellow villains, he warned Master Wu of Yang's plans. When he met the ninja again, he showed no ill will and was amused by their hostility but warned them of the threat. After this, he left his former master on good terms before he returned to the museum and went back to the Departed Realm on his own will, finally at peace with his fate, and no longer the vengeful spirit he had become.

Abilities and weapons


  • Wind: Morro was a prodigy as a child in both the martial arts and the use of his Elemental Power. In combat, he is capable of dominating the battlefield by inhibiting the movements of his opponents with powerful cyclones and gales of wind, which consistently throws his enemies off guard. He can use this to great effect, as he can interfere with the ability to use Spinjitzu. He is even strong enough to use the winds to trap the Destiny's Bounty.
  • Airjitzu: Morro can also use the art of Airjitzu, as he learned it after obtaining the first Scroll of Airjitzu before the ninja.
  • Possession: Morro, as he is a ghost, is able to physically take over another person's brain, making them his host. He used this to his best ability when he possessed Lloyd as he was jealous of him becoming the Green Ninja. While possessing somebody, he retains his Elemental Power and gains the host's Power if they have any.
    • Voice Imitation: While controlling a host, he is able to completely imitate the person's voice.
    • Non-Living Possession: Morro was able to possess a Serpentine statue and a heap of sand.
  • Intangibility: As he is a ghost, Morro can phase through solid objects. However, he's unable to do this when he possesses somebody.
  • Martial arts: Morro is a skilled user of martial arts and he was able to easily defeat his fellow pupils in combat.
    • Swordsmanship: Morro is also very skilled in swordsmanship. A noticeable example of this was when he use the Sword of Sanctuary (without using it's powers) to fight nearly all four ninja in an ice maze. In addition he also fought with two Ghost Blades while fighting the Ninjas on the Bounty.
  • Communication with the Preeminent: He was able to communicate with the Preeminent even when possessing Lloyd.


  • Allied Armor of Azure: Morro wore the Allied Armor of Azure that he used to summon the Ghost Masters until it was destroyed.
  • Sword of Sanctuary: Morro held the Sword of Sanctuary that he used to easily gain an edge over the ninja.
  • Realm Crystal: Morro used the Realm Crystal to open the gateway so his master can come. He later used it as a way of teleportation to combat Lloyd.
  • Ghost Blades: Morro weild two ghost blades while fighting on the Bounty. They were destroyed by Nya.
  • Scroll of Airjitzu: After a chase on getting the Scroll of Airjitzu, Morro used it to learn how to preform it. He later used it along with the Sword of Sanctuary to find the First Spinjitzu Master's tomb.

Enemies descriptions

Possession (2017 Museum gallery)

Long ago, Morro, the Master of Wind, was Master Wu’s first pupil. He had great talent and Wu believed he was on the path to becoming the Green Ninja. However, at the crucial moment, the Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu did not react to him (as they would one day for Lloyd). Wu attempted to convince Morro to give up on his quest, but the embittered young man refused. Morro went off on his own in search of the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master and perished in the Caves of Despair (it’s believed he may have been killed by the explosive geysers present in the caves). For reasons that remain a mystery, he was banished to the Cursed Realm. Morro later escaped, possessed Lloyd’s body and led a ghostly legion into battle in the NINJAGO world. In the end, the Preeminent dragged Morro beneath the water and his ghostly form was destroyed.[9]

Day of the Departed

Denied the chance to be the Green Ninja, Morro stormed from Wu’s dojo intent on gaining the same power by other means. He went in search of the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master, believing that the resting place of the creator of the NINJAGO world would give him control of the four Golden Weapons. His travels took him to the Caves of Despair, after misreading “cave in the deep” on an ancient scroll in the Library of Domu. There he was trapped and killed by a kethanol geyser.[10]

Character Encyclopedia New Edition

Back from the Cursed Realm as a ghost, Morro is set on revenge against Wu and the ninja. Driven by jealously, Morro uses his cunning and mastery of his element, the wind, to possess Lloyd and attack the other ninja. His mission is to bring evil to Ninjago Island once again.

Perfect Student

Morro was Master Wu's first student. He soon mastered the martial arts and Wu thought he might be the prophesied Green Ninja. When it became clear that he wasn't, Morro became obsessed with proving Wu wrong.

Behind the scenes

  • He is voiced by Andrew Francis, who used a very similar voice to young Morro for Jaller in another LEGO property, Bionicle: Mask of Light.
  • In the LEGO sets, Morro has a tattered cape and a black bandana (the ones worn by the ninja in their Techno robes and Tournament robes). However, both of these are absent in the TV series.
    • Likewise, the green streak in Morro's hair is absent on his physical minifigure.
  • Morro's torso design is based on the ninja's original trainee uniforms, with the symbol being the dragon symbol used by Lloyd ever since he became the Golden Ninja. As a child, he had a slightly desaturated version of Lloyd's ZX torso.
  • Although Morro appears in "Day of the Departed," neither him nor Samukai, who also appears in "Day of the Departed," appear in any of the special's sets.
    • This is presumably because Morro had been released the most recently out of all the villains in the special, and the sets including him would still have been available on shelves.
    • His exclusion from the sets explains why he didn't get an updated design like most of the other villains, as the new designs were a product design choice.[11]


The Trivia on Morro needs to be organized.
  • You can help the wiki by organizing the following information chronologically based on how the information applies to the series.
  • This template can be removed once the section has been organized.
  • Morro shares similarities with several characters, both in Ninjago and other franchises:
    • Morro and Kai both had an obsession to become the Green Ninja. Unlike Kai, however, Morro had a vicious desire, which led him to crave vengeance to destroy Lloyd, whereas Kai learned his destiny was to protect Lloyd and help train him to reach his full potential.
    • Morro is similar in appearance to Kylo Ren from Star Wars, as both characters were first introduced in 2015 and have the same hairpiece for their LEGO Minifigures.
    • Morro's character arc bears resemblance to Tai Lung, the main antagonist of the first Kung Fu Panda movie. Both being former students of their respective series' main martial art teachers and were trained by said teachers to become legendary warriors (the Dragon Warrior for Kung Fu Panda, the Green Ninja for Ninjago). But they ended up being rejected from the roles due to their hearts being too negative and felt wronged by this decision, choosing to seek out vengeance.
    • Morro is similar to Vex from Season 11. In the past, they were both rejected from the possibility of being special, and they both went on to hijack one of the ninja's bodies in order to gain more power, which made the ninja appear to be evil.
    • Morro is similar to the Reverse-Flash from DC Comics, as they both originally wanted to be the main hero persona (the Green Ninja and The Flash respectively) only to realize they could never be this, which led them to go down a dark path and become an enemy of the hero, trying to defeat the hero to prove himself better than him.
  • When Morro possesses a victim, he displays the ability to replicate his victim's voice.[12]
  • He is the second villain to appear in the series who has a vendetta against Wu, the preceded by Garmadon and followed by the Time Twins and Aspheera.
  • Out of all the generals in Ninjago, Morro is the only one with an Elemental Power.
    • While he is not referred to as a general in the series, he was credited as "Ghost General" in "The Corridor of Elders."
  • He is the second villain with a dragon, the first being The Overlord with the Nindroid MechDragon.
  • His name and element appear to reference Morrowind, the third Elder Scrolls game. Tommy Andreasen confirmed this was not a deliberate reference.[13]
  • Morro appears at the end of every level of Ninjago Possession.
  • He is the only high ranking ghost with legs in the show.
  • In "Ghost Story," Morro was able to shoot green lightning. This is not normal lightning, but rather a manifestation of Energy and ghost power.[14]
  • Morro appears to be the first Elemental Master to have summoned elemental weapons (twin Ghost Blades). It is unknown if it is one of his elemental powers or ghost powers. The only other people who have been able to do this are Zane[citation needed] and Garmadon (with the Destruction daggers).
  • Morro is the first Elemental Master of a normal element to die onscreen, Nya being the second, but that event was erased due to Jay's final wish.
  • His willingness to assist Wu and the ninja in "Day of the Departed" was due to his final moments from "Curseworld, Part II," upon realizing his fate and personal weakness. He may well have remembered this and, as such, used the chance to prove himself to his former foes not as the Green Ninja, but just as a ninja.
  • He is the only one of the ghosts that who returns to the museum in "Day of the Departed" during the Yin-Yang Eclipse's conclusion. This is due to his completing his claimed "debts" and having accepted his fate, unlike the other villains.
    • He was also the only antagonist who accepted fate in his respective season whereas the others, save for Pythor, didn't accept their death at all.
  • Morro is one of the four main villains to have appeared before the installment where they are the main antagonist, the others being Yang, Krux, and Ronin.
  • Morro is one of the eight main antagonists not currently known to be alive, the other six being Chen, the Preeminent, the Time Twins, the Omega, and Kalmaar.
  • Morro is one of only four primary antagonists to reform, the other three being Garmadon, Yang, and Unagami.
  • There is no reference to Morro unlocking his True Potential at any point in his life, nor is it seen at all in the series. When asked if he had, Tommy Andreasen said Morro doesn't seem like he had overcome his obstacles within.[15]
  • Since Possession, Morro was referenced in all following seasons except Hunted and Prime Empire.
  • Morro was most likely around 15 to 20 years old when he died in the Caves of Despair, according to Tommy Andreasen.[19] He was "A bit younger" than the ninja.[20]
  • Morro and Harumi both had tragic backstories and were out for revenge.
    • Tommy Andreasen likes the idea of them being together in the Departed Realm as a couple.[21]
  • Morro appears as a boss in The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame in the "Stormy Docks" dojo (which has no relation to the game's storyline) and can be unlocked as a playable character by earning a gold medal in that dojo, which requires the player to collect 170,000 studs.
    • However, as a playable character, he cannot use his elemental abilities.
  • While Morro used a corrupted version of Lloyd's dragon, he never used his own, as he is not "a person who rests in himself and has overcome this fears".[22]
  • Morro's line right before his death in "Curseworld, Part II," "You can only save those who want to be saved," reflects what Wu said when explaining Morro's origins in "Ghost Story," which was "I could not teach those who would not listen."
  • He is one of the ten characters to have a cape in the sets, the others are Lloyd, Chen, the Time Twins, Harumi, Wu, Blizzard Sword Masters, Akita, and Mammatus.
  • After asked what happened to Wind after Morro's death, Tommy Andreasen stated "I guess the wind element has found a new host who is not known at this time."[23] This indicates he did not have his power when he returned on the Day of the Departed.[24]
    • Andreasen has stated that he has a someone in mind for who the next Master of Wind could be.[25]
  • It's unlikely Morro's past will be further explored.[26]
  • When asked how Morro ended up in the Cursed Realm, Tommy Andreasen said, "He must have done some bad act as he perished in his search for the tomb, putting a curse on himself."[27]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, Morro most likely wears pants and not a skirt.[28]
  • When Wu was testing if Morro was the green ninja or not, a golden katana was in place of the Sword of Fire
    • However, this was most likely an animation mistake with no impact on the main story
