Trivia

  • It was first revealed to exist by a LEGO designer on The Eljay Johnsen Show.[4]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen in 2019, Ninjago will continue for at least two more years.[5]
  • While Zane does not appear in the first teaser trailer, he is shown in a small clip, not accompanying the Ninja when they enter Prime Empire.
    • The reason why he doesn't go with the Ninja is because Zane and P.I.X.A.L. they must not enter the game or their programming could change.
    • There will be an episode focused on Zane and P.I.X.A.L. releasing in this season.[6]
    • Zane only appears in one set: 71708 Gamer's Market, but he does not have a Digi Suit in any of the known sets so far; he actually exhibits the pink variant of his Training/Original gi from the fifth episode of Season 1, "Can of Worms." His Digi suit was seen in a poster lift out from an issue of Ninjago Magazine and a trading card.[7]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, his favorite fight will be in the next chapter, indicating that the "chapter" format of the previous season may continue.[8]
  • This will be the third season to have all of the Ninja use their robes from a previous season.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, this season was inspired by the Polybius urban legend.[9]
  • According to Ashley Lynch, a screenwriter that works on Ninjago, five more teaser trailers and the full trailer will be released soon after the first teaser trailer was released.[10] It was also revealed that more trailers will come in the first Season 12's teaser trailer's official description.
  • This season will feature Cyrus Borg's first speaking role since The Hands of Time. While he appeared in March of the Oni, he did not speak at any point in the season.
  • The Cartoon Network Asia website refers to the season as "Season 2", similarly to the previous season being called "Season 1" by various sources, as the WildBrain-animated seasons are often considered a separate show to the pre-Season 11 seasons.
  • The intro for the season is similar to the intro for the previous season in that it changes with every episode, showcasing the events of the previous episode. It is also the second intro to not feature the "Masters of Spinjitzu" subtitle or use episode numbering, and is the fifth consecutive intro to not showcase the Ninjas' names. It also features a new rendition of The Weekend Whip.
  • The new rendition of The Weekend Whip, titled "The Arcadian Whip", was released on March 15th, 2020.
  • Nya is seen performing a move similar to Airjitzu in the official trailer.
  • In the official trailer, Jay can be seen performing the dance "Hype" from the highly popular video game Fortnite.
  • It will premiere in Japan on March 29, 2020.
  • A promo airing on Cartoon Network Asia mistakenly calls this season Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu [11]
