|“Endings will always come. Whether we want them to or not, they are inevitable. All we can do is fight to make them good ones.”|
Season 10 of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled March of the Oni, was preceded by Season 9 and Tales from the Monastery of Spinjitzu. It continues the story that starts in Season 8. Cole is the intro character, but there is no mascot, nor is there a focus character.. The Oni serve as this season's villainous faction.
Bragi Schut, who previously worked on both Sons of Garmadon and Hunted, is the lead writer. The Hageman Brothers are involved with the creation of the story but are not the script writers. While being only four episodes, it has also alternatively been edited into a feature-length TV film, spanning 88 minutes (one hour and 28 minutes).

- The first English trailer, was revealed on December 20, 2018 on the LEGO Life App.
- Tommy Andreasen stated that this season serves as "a conclusion of a 24 episode arc." This may mean that any loose ends left open at the end of "Green Destiny" will be concluded by the end of these four episodes.
- Though Tommy Andreasen doesn't personally consider March of the Oni a season, it is officially recognized as Season 10.
- This is the second season in a row to not have a focus character.
- March of the Oni is planned to be released in early 2019.
- It is only a small part of the six hours of content planned for 2019.

- Dareth, Faith, Garmadon, P.I.X.A.L. and Cyrus Borg are set to appear in this season.
- The final episode of Hunted, "Green Destiny," hinted that future villains would be the Oni, as Lloyd believes they are coming. It was confirmed in the new trailer that the Oni are indeed coming.
- A clip was released (in its early animation) of Jay practicing asking out Nya with Kai in the Monastery of Spinjitzu. It is revealed through the clip that the emblem is what Jay uses to ask Nya to be his "Yang."
- The original Monastery is as good as new in the clip, despite being burned down by the Hypnobrai in Season 1 and again accidentally by Kai in Season 7. It appears that two people are reattaching the door of the Monastery, meaning that the Ninja are restoring it and have moved back into it as their home base.
