“Biggest city in all of Ninjago. Always wanted to come here.”
Jay to the other ninja, "Can of Worms"

Ninjago City, formerly known as New Ninjago City, is the capital city of Ninjago and its main urban area, found near the Sea of Sand, and close to the coast of the island.


Misfortune Rising

Nadakhan transported Kai to Ninjago City's "humble beginnings" when Ray was a poor teenager selling weapons from door to door.

The Golden Weapon/How to Build a Dragon (flashback)

Jay visited Ninjago City to test his gliders. While they worked, he crashed into a billboard and came across Master Wu.

Can of Worms

The ninja first visited Ninjago City when they detected Serpentine activity in the area. Although amazed by the sheer size of the metropolis, they quickly tracked the snakes to the subway tunnels, where Pythor had gathered the tribes in an attempt to unite them.

The Royal Blacksmiths

During their hunt for the Blade Cup, which contained the second Fangblade, the ninja visited Cole's father, Lou, in the suburbs of Ninjago City. They subsequently went to the city's Concert Hall to participate in the annual "Ninjago Talent" show, where the Blade Cup was offered as the grand prize.

All of Nothing

During a suspicious drought of Serpentine sightings, the Ninja discovered Spitta roaming the alleys of Ninjago City one night. They cornered the Venomari soldier and grilled him for information about the whereabouts of Pythor and the final Fangblade, only to learn that the Anacondrai was already tracking the artifact halfway across Ninjago.

Day of the Great Devourer

After the Great Devourer defeated the Ninjas' Ultra Sonic Raider at Ed & Edna's Scrap N Junk, it headed for Ninjago City in search of more material to consume. Entering via the subway tunnels, the monster emerged in the city square, interrupting the "Take Back Ninjago" rally. An all-out battle erupted when the Ninja arrived, but the Great Devourer was too powerful for them to defeat.

After the Devourer defeated the Ultra Dragon, Lord Garmadon approached the Ninja, who told them that the only way to kill the Devourer was to combine the power of all four Golden Weapons—which, coincidentally, only he could do. Reluctantly, the Ninja agreed, giving Garmadon the weapons before distracting the Great Devourer with a mad chase around the city. Eventually, the Ninja successfully immobilized the beast by tricking it into winding its massive body through the streets and alleys of the city and biting its tail, allowing Garmadon to destroy it by plunging through the weak spot on top of its head.

Pirates vs. Ninja

After the pirates enter Ninjago City, the Ninja try to ward them off.

Double Trouble

Following Lord Garmadon's orders, the evil ninja searched the city for any signs of the Ninja. Along the way, they trapped an elderly woman in a tree with her cat, caused a car accident, broke an ATM, and stole cotton candy from Nuckal. Eventually, they found Dareth's Dojo and tried to trick Wu.

Ninjaball Run

The Ninja are training Lloyd in Dareth's dojo when a wrecking ball hits the window and the Ninja fall and when Dareth comes screaming in that it was meant for tomorrow, Nya comes in and tells the Ninja about Ninjaball Run. Then the Ninja start the race in Ninjago City and just beat Garmadon and the Serpentine to the finish line.

The Stone Army

The Ninja traveled across the city to the Museum to deal with the Stone Army merchandise coming to life after the Great Devourer attack.

The Day Ninjago Stood Still

Ninjago City has been reported to have an earthquake but was just Constrictai digging up the earth in hopes to bury its citizens. Later, with the Stone Army freed, the citizens were forced to evacuate while the army wreaked havoc.

Return of the Overlord

After infecting Jamanakai and Ignacia, the Overlord plans to take over Ninjago City next. He eventually created a portal to the city, leaving the Ninja trapped on the Dark Island.

Rise of the Spinjitzu Master

The Overlord, now at Ninjago City, started to blast Dark Matter onto the city. Once Lloyd saved Ninjago, the city was destroyed, and the citizens started to repair it.

After the Final Battle

Much of the city was left in ruin after the Final Battle and Cyrus Borg spearheaded the effort to restore Ninjago City, upgrading it with futuristic technology, and it was renamed New Ninjago City. Borg Tower was constructed at the site of the Final Battle, becoming an icon as the city's tallest building. It was there that the Hover-car was invented, which became the most common mode of transportation around the city. Borg Industries also designed Security Mechs and Hover-Copters to protect the city and enforce the law.

The Surge

New Ninjago City became a battleground once again when the Digital Overlord took control of all of Borg's security forces, turning them against the citizens. While the Ninja fended off the mechs and hover-copters, Master Wu helped evacuate a large majority of citizens from the city using the sewers.

Shadow of Ronin (non-canon)

Ninjago City fell under attack by Nindroids once again after Ronin reactivated them. The Ninja, Nya, and Cyrus Borg were able to disable them, however, though not before one of the jets crashed into the fireworks factory.

Day of the Departed

On the evening of the Day of the Departed, the Ninja raced through the streets of Ninjago City, desperate to get to the Ninjago Museum of History before its gift shop closed.

The Mask of Deception

The Sons of Garmadon infiltrated Borg Tower and stole the Oni Mask of Vengeance. Lloyd then chased Mr. E around Ninjago City but he eventually got away.

Big Trouble, Little Ninjago

The Sons of Garmadon, Garmadon, and Colossus prepared to wreak havoc in Ninjago City, to get them to bow before Garmadon as its new Emperor.


Garmadon has subjugated the city and has made a throne out of the tallest building which overlooks the city with the Colossus standing guard. The Sons of Garmadon continue to destroy the streets by harassing civilians or rounding up some of the Ninjas' allies.

Green Destiny

Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, and Wu, return to Ninjago City and help their friends take down the Colossus. Lloyd faces Garmadon and regains his powers while the latter loses his. Ninjago City is freed and everyone celebrates and they thank the Ninja after in the aftermath.

The Kaiju Protocol

Wu and P.I.X.A.L. attempt to locate the Never-Realm and accidentally unleashed The Preeminent. P.I.X.A.L. goes to Ninjago City to bring it back to the Departed Realm.

Would You Like to Enter Prime Empire?

The ninja chased The Mechanic and end up capturing him, but Jay spotted the Prime Empire motherboard he was carrying. After finding an old arcade, Jay inserted the motherboard in an arcade cabinet which caused every arcade cabinet to have Prime Empire as its video game. Soon, gamers playing Prime Empire would enter the game.

Game Over

With the help of The Mechanic, Unagami and his allies were released from Prime Empire and started reckoning havoc on the people. Jay would fight Unagami with his Blue Dragon and lure him to Borg Tower where Milton Dyer, Unagami's creator, would apologize for shutting down Unagami during production and promised to to make amends. Unagami agreed and released everyone from Prime Empire including those who were cubed and gave the NPCs a chance to decide whether they would stay in Ninjago or head back to Prime Empire. description

Capital of NINJAGO Island, NINJAGO City is a large urban area located near the Sea of Sand. Numerous ninja adventures have taken place here. Locations in the city include the NINJAGO Museum of History, NINJAGO Music Hall, NINJAGO City Square, Grand Master Dareth’s Mojo Dojo and the NGTV Building. A complex network of subway tunnels can be found beneath the city. After its destruction at the hands of the Overlord, it was rebuilt by the genius Cyrus Borg and became New NINJAGO City. It became a high-tech metropolis, a center of great technological advancements where everything was digitally connected. After the defeat of the Golden Master, the idea behind New NINJAGO City was discarded in favor of a more balanced environment. Today, the city is commonly referred to as NINJAGO City. A statue of Zane stands in the park, erected to honor his sacrifice in the battle against the Golden Master.[1]


The original location of the city shown on the map for the Ninjaball Run race (marked with flags)

Pilot episodes – Season 7

Ninjago City is located somewhere in the Sea of Sand, although when the ninja and the Elemental Masters were returning from Chen's Island, the city seemed to be on the coast, which contradicts the Ninjaball Run map.

Season 8 onwards

Ninjago City is located directly on the shores of the Endless Sea, while the other side of the city is located near the Sea of Sand.


Ninjago City is comprised of many skyscrapers, featuring billboards for advertising businesses. Within the city are small shops, lively subway systems, small arcades, schools, large banks, parks, cafes, and a vast sewer system. On the streets are buses that drive around regularly, and many parked cars along the sidewalks.

Video games


  • The title "New Ninjago City" was mostly dropped after Rebooted, only subsequently being used in "Versus" and some Ninjago: Decoded episodes.
  • There are some inconsistencies in the location of the city on the island of Ninjago. While in all pre-movie seasons the city is located inland on the Sea of Sand, in "The Greatest Fear of All" it is located on the coast for an unknown reason. Since Sons of Garmadon, the city has been permanently located on the coast to bring it closer to its counterpart from The LEGO Ninjago Movie. However, the Sea of Sand is still on the other side, as shown in "Snake Jaguar." Since Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu, the location of the city was unclear until Seabound, when it turned out that it was also located on the coast. It can also be assumed that the Sea of Sand is still on the other side of the city, although this desert hasn't been shown since 2018.
  • Despite having a vast transit system, the city does not appear to have any airports.
  • Between the end of Season 8 and the end of Season 9, Ninjago City was occupied and policed by the Sons of Garmadon with Lord Garmadon as its dictatorial ruler.
  • The city has come under attack in several seasons.
  • During Season 8 to Season 10, the city has an updated appearance similar to its movie counterpart. From Season 11 onwards, the city has a simpler, less detailed design.
  • So far, Season 13 is the only season not to feature Ninjago City.
    • Season 5 features Ninjago City the least of the seasons that feature it, only appearing in 3 episodes.
  • Seasons 3, 9, and 10 are the only seasons that feature Ninjago City in every episode of the season.
    • Seasons 6 and 12 are tied with having the city appear in 7 episodes of both seasons.
  • Ninjago City is a little over 50 years old, because when Nadakhan took Kai to the past, his father was a young man and Nadakhan said these were the humble beginnings of Ninjago City, which means it is relatively young.
    • However, according to Captain Soto's map, about two hundred years ago, a coastal village probably inhabited by pirates was located in the same place.
  • If the Time Twins had won the battle against the Elemental Alliance, technology in Ninjago City would have stopped at a point 40 years ago.[6]
