|“You're not gonna like it, but this is the truth. Everything around you, all of this, everything you think is real, it's not. Prime Empire, the Speedway Five-Billion, Terra Technica, all of it. It's part of an incredibly complex video game, and you're part of that game, too.”|
|— Lloyd, to Racer Seven|
NPCs (non-playable-characters) are A.I. created within the digital world of the Prime Empire video-game to fill specific purposes.
After Jay helped Milton Dyer and Unagami reconcile, Unagami released the players at Dyer's request and he agreed while also releasing the characters from the game to live out free and real lives in Ninjago. As a result, the NPCs are now humans in the real world, except for the Red Visors and Whack Rats who went back in the game.
- Unagami's Army
- Ballistic Missiles
- Chrome Domes
- Racer Seven
- Whack Rats
- Successful Samurai
- NPCs most likely did not become androids like Zane or P.I.X.A.L. when they traveled to the real world, but rather, their code was turned into genetic material, the opposite of how the Ninja were able to enter Prime Empire by becoming code.
