Not to be confused with the pyramid from the first season.
You wanna know what's inside? Traps, booby-traps. Bunkloads of them. Pitfalls and blow darts and fake tiles that collapse when you step on them. Big boulders that drop on you, no thank you.

The pyramid (briefly known as Aspheera Pyramid[1]) was a large stone temple in the Desert of Doom in which Aspheera was incarcerated after her defeat at the hands of Wu and Garmadon. The ninja's quest was to find this location and discover its secrets.


Never Trust a Human (flashback)

A young Wu managed to convince Garmadon to go to the Serpentine Valley with him. They were caught and placed in the pyramid's cell. While the two are arguing, Aspheera offered to free them in exchange for friendship and Spinjitzu lessons. They agreed, but only Wu held the end of his promise.

Weeks passed, and Aspheera used her newfound abilities to overthrow King Mambo the Fifth. Wu and Garmadon used the Forbidden Spinjitzu scrolls to defeat her, and she is put in a cell.

Eventually, the Pyro Vipers died off and were locked in sarcophagi in the pyramid sometime after.

Questing for Quests

The pyramid was mentioned by Clutch Powers when he was interviewed by Gayle Gossip, and can be seen behind Gayle when she talked about the pyramid. These are mostly used by the serpentine.

The Belly of the Beast

After escaping the beetles, the ninja head toward the pyramid.

Boobytraps and How to Survive Them

The ninja meet up with Clutch Powers and after disagreeing, he comes along with the ninja to explore the pyramid.

After avoiding multiple boobytraps, the ninja reach a sliding puzzle. While Jay and Nya solve the puzzle, Zane reads an inscription talking about someone's history. After reading, Zane realizes it is a Pyro Viper's tomb and tells Jay and Nya to stop solving the puzzle, but they are too late as they free Aspheera.

Now free, Aspheera demands the ninja to tell her where the "boy" is, but the ninja are uncertain who Aspheera is talking about. After Lloyd said he didn't know, he is immediately blasted by Aspheera's staff. The ninja fight Aspheera, but she is able to hold off their attacks. She then shows interest in Kai and steals his Elemental Power, Fire. The ninja try to stop Aspheera, but she uses Spinjitzu against them and wards off their attack. With Aspheera now having an Elemental Power, she spares the ninja and locks them up in chains.

Meanwhile, Clutch Powers, who decided to escape while the ninja were fighting Aspheera, finally makes it outside the pyramid, but he is immediately confronted by Aspheera who demands Powers to take her to the nearest village. Powers hints at Ninjago City being the closest, but refuses to take her. This causes Aspheera to erupt the pyramid with lava. Powers then slides down the walls of the pyramid to avoid the lava before a rock causes him to fly away from the pyramid. In the end, Aspheera got on Fire Fang and rode to Ninjago City.

Ninja vs Lava

The ninja are able to escape the pyramid with the help of P.I.X.A.L., before it is consumed by lava.
