- There are three divisions for designing the sets: the set designers, who build with physical LEGO bricks to design the models; the graphic designers, who design the Minifigure printing; and the element designers, who create the new LEGO brick designs with 3D modeling.
- Producing a set, from the idea stage to being on shelves, takes around sixteen months.
- Despite the ninja's hair being shown since the beginning of the TV series, their hairpieces were not included in the sets (though they did appear on some Spinjitzu Spinners cards) until 2014 with the Rebooted wave as part of their Techno gi designs. Before that, Jay, Cole, and Zane's hairpieces existed in other LEGO themes, while both of Lloyd's existed but not in blond, and Kai's did not exist at all, as it had been designed by WIL Film specifically for the series.
- All of their current hair pieces have been included in The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets. For the sets based on the TV show, all hair pieces were released, with Zane's titanium hair finally being released in 2021.
- As of the third Legacy wave, all of the ninja's current hair pieces have been included in sets outside of The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and Kai and Jay have had different colored ones in their Avatar outfits.
- A few sets have included both the headgear and hair pieces for some of the characters: 70738 Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty, 853687 Ninjago Accessory Set, 70626 Dawn of Iron Doom, 70627 Dragon's Forge, and 71738 Zane's Titan Mech Battle.
- The reason hair is not included in every set is because having the hair pieces could mean having less bricks for the rest of the set.
- Not counting the various mini-movie series, Ninjago: Decoded is the only multi-episode installment not to coincide with a wave of sets.
- Misako and Cyrus Borg are the only main allies of the ninja to be included in one set, and Acronix is the only main villain to be included in one set.
- Some of the ninja get more of a spotlight in the sets than others:
- After the 2019 Legacy spinners, Kai has appeared in all four collectible set series (Spinjitzu Slam, Arcade Pods, Spinjitzu Burst, Epic Battles), Lloyd and Jay have appeared in three, Zane and Cole have appeared in two, and Nya has appeared in none.
- Nya has not had a vehicle set since 2019. Besides the Legacy Samurai Mech, she has not had a vehicle set since 2017.
- Out of Cole's first first four vehicles, two (the Earth Driller and roto jet) were not specifically his in the show but were marketed as such in the sets.
- The ninja have distinctive eyebrows in order to easily identify them when they have their masks on.
- The only waves of sets to have no dragons are Day of the Departed and Season 8: Sons of Garmadon. The latter may be due to the abundance and heavy focus of dragons in Hunted.
- Promotional sets such as 5002144 Ninjago Battle Pack have more freedom because of how many prints need to be made.
