“And how cool is it that I can honestly say, 'My brother is a Nindroid'?”
Jay to Zane in "Tick Tock"

The Nindroids are highly advanced built androids based on Dr. Julien's design of the first Nindroid, Zane, the White Ninja.

History

Tick Tock

Believed to be an orphan, Zane lived a mysterious life until discovered by Master Wu and taken in as a student. Despite feeling overwhelmed with his new friends, the Ice Ninja still felt disappointed with his unknown past. Up upon till a special discovery with a mysterious Falcon, Zane and the ninja met many important missions; though they didn’t expect one adventure to lead them to a hidden workshop, only to witness the fact that Zane was not only special—he was a Nindroid, built to protect others.

The Surge

After the Golden Ninja defeated the Overlord, the ninja became teachers with the exception of Lloyd. Soon, Nya reported a trip to Borg Industries, whereas Zane met P.I.X.A.L., an android based on Zane. When the Overlord virus turned P.I.X.A.L. aggressive, she used her previous scan of Zane and upgraded his schematics to mane a more up-to-date robot army.

The Art of the Silent Fist

Upon facing the Nindroids surrounding P.I.X.A.L., Zane encountered General Cryptor, a brand-new Nindroid based on his own design while also upgraded with superior abilities.

The Last Resort

While thinking of a means to use Jay's last wish against Nadakhan, both he and Nya unexpectedly encounter Echo Zane, an inferior copy of Zane built from scrap parts but with the same programming to protect others. Although this Nindroid is prone to falling apart, he proves his worth during the raid on Jay and Nya's tower.

Snake Jaguar

After discovering Snake Jaguar is Zane in disguise, Mr. E and Zane fought each other using their motorcycles. Zane is still in the belief that Mr. E is the Quiet One, but instead, it turns out Mr. E is a Nindroid just like Zane.

Trivia

Zane's blueprint from the Nindroid Swarm game

  • Jay coined the term "Nindroid" in "Tick Tock", as he mixed the words "ninja" and "android." It is implied that Jay named Nindroids, since no one was aware of the name.
    • P.I.X.A.L. was not referred to as Nindroid until Season 10 (specifically on her character poster and in "The Fall").
  • As shown in the first two seasons, Zane, in his original body, was able to open his chest like a cabinet. However, the outline of his chest panel was only visible in various scenes where his status as a Nindroid is particularly relevant, such as when he played the Sacred Flute recording to the other ninja in "Day of the Great Devourer."
  • All of the evil Nindroids were built by P.I.X.A.L. (when she was controlled by the Overlord) and based on Zane's design.
  • Cyrus Borg's security droids (seen in "The Invitation") look identical to the evil Nindroids, but they work for good instead of evil. However, as of "Public Enemy Number One," the Nindroids at Hiroshi's Labyrinth, including a Nindroid leader resembling Cryptor, have white armor/clothing.
  • Stickered 2x2 tiles depicting the blueprints for Zane and the Falcon are included in 70594 The Lighthouse Siege.
  • Mr. E is the only evil Nindroid who is not known to serve the Overlord.
  • Mr. E was originally going to be Echo Zane. See their individual pages for more information.
  • Zane and P.I.X.A.L. both have a "programmed soul".[28]
  • The Robot Manager is the only android to not be associated with good or evil.
