I used to think technology would be the answer to all of our problems. But then I saw technology invent new problems. Devastating problems. And then a Nindroid named Zane saved us all. He was the perfect balance between us and technology. He taught us that life should be a balance. Technology can improve our lives, but so can people. And if we focus on one at the expense of the other, that's when the balance is off. Our city will find its way again, but this time with Zane as our compass.

The third season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled Rebooted, was preceded by Season 2 and succeeded by Season 4. Zane was the focus ninja and mascot character, the Overlord served as the main antagonist, and the Nindroids were the villainous faction of the season.

Official description

Victory in the Final Battle between the Golden Ninja and the Overlord has ushered in a new era of peace and begun a technological renaissance. NINJAGO City has been rebuilt into a futuristic wonder and is now completely interconnected. Welcome to New NINJAGO City. The ninja have found there is very little need for their heroics and have become teachers at Wu’s Academy. But peace is an illusion… [citation needed]


After the Overlord was defeated by Lloyd, Ninjago City was in complete ruins. However, a man named Cyrus Borg believed that if they worked together, they could achieve anything. In a matter of weeks, Ninjago had been rebuilt into a futuristic metropolis called New Ninjago City.

Without an enemy to fight, the ninja became teachers at Wu's Academy. One day, they received clearance for a field trip to Borg Industries. But upon their arrival, they learn that the Overlord survived the final battle and is trapped in the Digiverse as a virus. Cyrus Borg realizes this and gives the ninja the Techno Blades, which are the keys to destroy the Overlord.

The Overlord uses P.I.X.A.L. (an android who works at Borg Industries) to create an army of Nindroids from Zane's blueprints and plans to capture Lloyd, as his Golden Power will help him escape the digital realm. The hard drive containing the Overlord is later stolen by Pythor, revealed to have survived being eaten by the Great Devourer.

He captures Lloyd, and the Overlord drains him of most of his Golden Power. Though the ninja defeat him in the Digiverse, the Overlord escapes the digital realm half-formed. Lloyd then splits his remaining Golden Power among the four ninja, therefore, restoring their Elemental abilities, knowing that the power would be a big responsibility for him to bear alone.

The Overlord, needing to complete his transformation, sends the Nindroids to space to retrieve the Golden Weapons from the constellation Arcturus, which they succeed in doing. The Overlord becomes the Golden Master, fulfilling an old Serpentine prophecy, and wreaks havoc on New Ninjago City. With no other option, Zane sacrifices himself to destroy the Golden Master. However, he survives, trapped in the Digiverse, and rebuilds himself using titanium.

These sets focused on ninja vehicles and Nindroid vehicles. The final two sets, depicting elements from the second story arc (the last three episodes) were released as a separate wave, the smallest wave of sets to this date.

Zane was the mascot character, the box art depicted New Ninjago City, and the Techno Blades were the collectible items.

This was the first wave of sets to feature the ninja's hair pieces, as the Techno robes had half-masks as opposed to the full head wraps of previous waves.



The Trivia on Season 3: Rebooted needs to be organized.
  • You can help the wiki by organizing the following information chronologically based on how the information applies to the series.
  • This template can be removed once the section has been organized.
  • The collectible items featured in this season are the Techno Blades.
  • This is the only season to have eight episodes. However, it has the same amount of watch time as Prime Empire, Master of the Mountain and Seabound which have sixteen eleven-minute episodes.
  • This is the first season to air entirely in Australia/New Zealand before the United States.
  • For some reason, the color of the names of the episode in the title card changes from gold to white after the first two episodes, then changes to a light shade of yellow mixed with white before going back to gold.
  • The working title of Rebooted was 'The Nindroid Agenda.'[1]
  • During development, the episode number was originally 2, then 4, and then 8. This caused the first two episodes to feel somewhat rushed and left most of the plans for Evil Wu out of the final product.[2][3][4] The reason the season was 8 episodes was most likely due to budget.[5]
  • Tommy Andreasen stated, "I didn’t like the love triangle. But the Hs [Hageman Brothers] did. Live and let live."[7]
  • In some airings, the tune of the audio had a low pitch.[citation needed]
  • This is the only season not to physically feature any version of the Destiny's Bounty, and second installment overall, following the pilot episodes.
  • Ninjago's return was first confirmed on the message boards of LEGO's official website.[8]
  • This season uses the "split-screen" technique noticeably more often than other seasons.
  • This is the only appearance of P.I.X.A.L. in her original body. The next time she is physically seen is as Samurai X from The Hands of Time onward, and thus, she always wears the Samurai X suit.
  • The Hageman Brothers' favorite part of making this season was seeing Simon Lucas bring P.I.X.A.L. to life.[9]
  • When asked why they brought the Overlord back for this season, the Hageman Brothers stated, "we thought the ultimate battle would be the end. S3 taught us how expansive the stories could be".[10]
  • This season included two appearances of one-episode ninja suits that would later be released intermittently in special sets throughout the following years. The first was the Golden Techno robes from "Enter the Digiverse" and the second was the Stone Warrior armor from "The Titanium Ninja".
  • Tommy Andreasen stated in 2018 that his fondest memory working with the Hageman Brothers was a "late-night Saturday heated (but constructive) argument about Cyrus Borg’s intentions and the nature of his Digiverse" and that he thinks they "owe it to the World to tell that story some time."[11]
