“You've never been farther underground. Never been more surrounded by the very thing that powers you. The Skull Sorcerer thought he was burying you, but what if he was actually bringing you closer to the earth? To the source of your Elemental Power?”

Trivia

  • According to Bragi Schut, as of July 29, 2019, the final draft of a future season finale had been completed and it will be "very emotional."[14][15] The standard production time of Ninjago episodes (9-10 months after the completion of the final script) would suggest this to be referring to this season.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, the final episode of this season will feature fantastic choreography by WildBrain.[16]
    • He refers to it as a chapter instead of a season, though he also did the same for Prime Empire before it was released.
  • Bragi Schut said that he has a "particular soft spot" for writing this season.[17]
  • The Ninja and Wu are referred to as heroes on the set boxes (ex: Hero Wu), indicating the name of this season's suits.
    Four Games
  • Four of the sets from Season 13 can be built together to create a board game.
  • The Ninja have armor similar to medieval knights over their Season 11 gis, aside from Lloyd who has a completely new gi underneath the armor.
    • This is the third season in a row where the Ninja use their Season 11 suits at one point in the season.
  • The primary setting that the Ninja explore this season is the Dungeons of Shintaro, within the bowels of Shintaro Mountain.
  • The collectible weapons featured in this season are the Ivory and Shadow Blades of Deliverance.
  • This is the first season where no wheeled vehicles appear as sets.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen in the live-chat of a stream hosted by Joshua Deck on YouTube, this season will have "a lot of backstory and character elaboration".[18]
  • Despite many sources claiming Season 13 is part of Season 12, they are two separate "chapters".[19]
    • This is due to cable networks buying both seasons as one instead of making two separate purchases.
  • Information regarding the season's background and the Ninjas' roles was revealed in the sets' official Play Guide. The download link to the guide is available on the official LEGO website.[20][21]
    • Cole is journeying with a group called the Upply to unlock the power of Spinjitzu Burst and fulfill a promise to make his mother proud. He wants to accomplish that by fighting a foe that she once fought. Meanwhile, the other Ninja are split into groups and trying to unite the Munce (Nya, Jay, and Lloyd) and the Geckles (Kai and Zane) against the Skull Sorcerer and his Awakened Warriors. Expanded information is present in the Play Guide.
  • Master of the Mountain is the first season to have The Weekend Whip as the opening theme song, and not have "Jump Up, Kick Back, Whip Around and Spin" as one of the lyrics in the TV size version of the song.
  • With this season having only 16 episodes (equal to eight 22-minute episodes), it is as long as Season 3 and Season 12. It's also tied as the second shortest season after Season 10.
    • It is the second straight season to only have sixteen episodes with the previous season beginning the trend.
  • This is the first season to not feature Dareth since his debut in Season 2.
  • This season marks:
  • Amount of times a different character reads a title card:
    • Cole: 6
    • Wu: 2
    • Zane: 1
    • Jay: 1
    • Gulch: 1
    • Korgran: 1
    • Nya: 1
    • Geckles: 1
    • Fungus: 1
    • Vania: 1
      • This makes Cole announcing the most amount of title cards while multiple characters are tied for the least with one.
      • Kai and Lloyd are the only ninja to not announce a title card.

Focus Character

  • Cole serves as the focus character for Season 13. His promise to his mother is very vital to this season.[1]
    • He was focused in on Episode 146, 147, 148, 151, 152, and 153.
      • He develops a relationship with Vania, and was the first Ninja to discover the Dungeons of Shintaro in Episode 146, but got captured by the Skull Sorcerer.
      • In Episode 147, he builds a relationship with Murt and notices the hatred between the Munce and the Geckles.
      • He and Lloyd discover the Skull of Hazza D'ur and was chased by the Skull Sorcerer in Episode 148. However, he did not meet up with the rest of the Ninja and took a completely different tunnel.
      • For most of Episode 151, he fights to stay alive from the Dire Bats and Giant Spider. He is able to reunite with Vania and Wu, but they all discover Vangelis is the Skull Sorcerer. 
      • In Episode 152, Cole's intuition as well as his ability to persevere allowed for himself, Wu, and Vania to stay alive in messy situations.
      • Cole's leadership of the Upply as well as tapping into his true Elemental Powers in Episode 153 allows the group to escape Rock-Bottom and defeat the Magma Monster.
  • Master Wu is also another prominent character in this season.
    • He was the focused in on Episode 145, 151, 152, and 153.
      • In Episode 145, Wu was depressed and thought he was no longer needed since the Ninja went on missions without him. He was forced to go with the Ninja after Misako scolded him.
      • He reunites with Cole in Episode 151, and they discover Vangelis is the Skull Sorcerer.
      • In Episode 152, Wu's teaching to Cole allows the Earth Ninja to use his Elemental Powers to save them from disaster.
      • In Episode 153, he talks about Lilly and having greater powers when near the Earth which allows Cole to find his true Elemental Powers and escape Rock Bottom.
  • Nya plays a somewhat prominent role in this season.
    • She was focused in on Episode 149 and 155.
      • She fights for the right to be Jay's love interest in Episode 149. Nya ends up winning, but is also declared the queen of the Munce.
      • In Episode 155, her leadership over the Munce forces them to participate in a truce meeting with the Geckles.
  • P.I.X.A.L. and Misako are secondary characters that play very minor roles in the season.
    • Both characters appear in only one episode; however, Misako is able to convince Wu into going on the trip with the Ninja.

Antagonists

  • Vangelis served as the main antagonist of this season.
  • the Skull of Hazza D'ur served as the secondary antagonist of this season.
  • The Awakened Warriors served as the villainous factions of the season.
