“I have. Which is the only reason I am not sentencing them to life in prison. Instead, I'm sentencing them to five years in Kryptarium Prison.”
William Toughbutt, declaring the ninja's sentence

Ninjago City vs. Ninja will be the seventh episode of the fifteenth season of Ninjago and the 187th episode overall. It aired on May 20, 2022 on LEGO's YouTube channel.

Synopsis

After saving Nya, the Ninja are arrested and put on trial! Despite the help of their lawyer Dareth, the Ninja are sentenced to five years in Kryptarium Prison. While they are in prison, a mysterious masked messenger visits Llyod and reveals that the Crystal King is gathering all the enemies of the Ninja and plans to destroy NINJAGO City!

Can the Ninja save NINJAGO City from the Crystal King's evil plan?[3]

Plot

Following Lloyd, Kai, Jay, Zane, and Cole's capture by the New Ninja for freeing Aspheera from incarceration, a court is taking place for the team. Dareth serves as the team's lawyer and tries to defend them by remind the Judge, William Toughbutt, about the Ninja's heroism and protection to Ninjago, but Toughbutt ends up sentencing them for 5 years at Kryptarium Prison. This leads to a protest as the Ninja are taken away while Nya helplessly watches. Placed into their cell at Kryptarium, Zane notes that there are only bunk beds enough for four of them and calls on one. Annoyed at his lack of emotion, Cole tells him to turn it back on. He does so, which led to a loud screech before Cole turns it back off. As Kai intends to break out using his powers, Lloyd stops him, and insists they leave everything to Dareth.

At the monastery, Dareth tries to think of a solution, alongside Nya and Skylor, but Wu didn't take part as he believes the Ninja have no one to blame but themselves for disobeying him in breaking Aspheera out, but Nya takes the blame for herself, insisting that it was her own fault before leaving the room. Wu then tells Skylor that Nya was never powerless, even during her tenure as Samurai X.

Among other prisoners in the exercise yard at the prison, inducing glares from prisoners, including Ultra Violet and Mezmo, Jay approached Lloyd, Kai, Cole and Zane, telling them he joined the 'Needles' club before finding themselves in the presence of Ronin, a former ally who tried to rob the Keepers of their prized possessions, who then told Jay the Needles club is just for those learning to knit. As Ronin prepares to intimidate them, a guard stops him before informing Lloyd that he has a visitor. As he escorted him down the hallway, the guard tells Lloyd he and several other guards appreciate what he and the Ninja had down for the city before the crimes he committed. Reaching the visitor's room, the guard directs him to the last booth, where his visitor was waiting, which Lloyd believed it was Master Wu, but instead, it was an individual wearing a kabuki mask. He explains that he came to warn him that he is forming a council for an individual called the Crystal King and wanted to see the look of Lloyd's when he told him before leaving.

Lloyd then attempted to pursue him, but was stopped by the guards, who mistakenly believe he was attempting to escape. Taken back to his and the others' cell, Lloyd tells them of the Kabuki Mask's plan and that they must find a way to get out of prison. In the Kingdom of Shintaro, Vangelis, who is confined in a room, plays a lyre before a hole is cut in the ceiling, surprising him, and a Crystal Spider arrives with a mask, similar to the one he had as the Skull Sorcerer before the spider plays a message from the Kabuki Mask, inviting him into the council. Vangelis accepts, putting on the mask, which glows pink.

Trivia

Continuity

  • The reason why the Kabuki Mask told Lloyd about the Crystal King was similar to what Harumi did in "Game of Masks," of how she wanted Lloyd to feel the emptiness she felt and to see him suffer as she did.
  • Ronin mentions the scam he pulled in "The Tooth of Wojira" and how the ninja busted him.
  • This episode marks Vangelis' first appearance since "The Son of Lilly" and the first appearance of the Kingdom of Shintaro since "Master of the Sea."
    • This is also the first episode where Vangelis' cell is shown.
