Rice farmers are farmers who live in great fields around the Four Weapons Blacksmith in Ignacia or in the vicinity of the village in the valley. Although peaceful by nature, several of them end up in the middle of greater battles between the ninja and the forces of evil.

Several rice farmers were working in the fields when the Skulkin mounted an attack on the Four Weapons Blacksmith shop. The farmers bravely charged the approaching vehicles with their tools in hand, but Samukai quickly scared them into retreat.
When Lord Garmadon decided to manipulate the past in order to prevent the ninja from ever becoming a team, he used his Mega Weapon to create a portal in the Ouroboros. When the ninja leaped through to pursue their foe, they ended up in the middle of a rice field, outside Four Weapons. It is unclear if the rice farmers noticed the surprise visitors, but they played the same role as before when the Skulkin (plus a disguised Lord Garmadon) attacked the blacksmith shop.
Some rice farmers were working in their fields when the Garmatron fired on Ignacia from the Island of Darkness. The Dark Matter missile rapidly corrupted the entire area, turning the rice farmers into snarling, purple-eyed servants of evil.
When a convoy of the trucks with the henchmen appears on a dirt road in an unknown field, curious farmers raise their heads during their work to see what is happening. Later, when their village is almost destroyed by a huge water tornado created by Nya, the ninja save the villagers and farmers by going up the hill with them, where the water does not harm them.
