Zane to P.I.X.A.L., "The Titanium Ninja"

Season 3 of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled Rebooted, was preceded by Season 2 and succeeded by Season 4. Zane was the focus Ninja and mascot, the Overlord served as the main antagonist, Cryptor served as the secondary 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…

Story

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 and was now New Ninjago City.

Without an enemy to fight, the Ninja became teachers at Master Wu's Academy. One day, they received clearance for a field trip to Borg Industries. But upon 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 systems, and rebuilds himself using titanium.

Notes

  • This is the only season to have eight episodes. However, it has the same amount of watch time as Season 12: Prime Empire and Season 13: Master of the Mountain, with the latter two having 16 11-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.
  • This is currently the only season in which the Destiny's Bounty does not make a single appearance. The original Destiny's Bounty was used for Seasons 1 and 2, while Destiny's Bounty 2.0 has been used from Season 4 up to Season 12. The pilot episodes are the only other installment not to feature the Bounty.
  • The working title of Rebooted was 'The Nindroid Agenda.'[1]
  • In some airings, the tune of the audio had a low pitch.

    • Zane was focused on in Episodes 28, 29 and 34.
      • In Episode 28, Zane had a fight with the new Nindroid Cryptor. He also witnessed P.I.X.A.L powering down as the Ninja shut down the power.

      • In Episode 34, he sacrificed his own life to save his friends and ultimately destroys the Overlord. A funeral was held for him as well as giving him the title of the 'Titanium Ninja'.
  • P.I.X.A.L. had a major role in this season behind Zane, especially in Episodes 28 and 34. The story between her and Zane became one of the season's main storylines.
  • Kai has a great role in this season.
    • Kai was focused on in Episodes 31 and 32.
      • In Episode 31, Kai was shown to struggle in the Digiverse. Later, he was caught in a conflict with the Overlord, where he learned to control himself in the world.
      • In Episode 32, Kai driving his Prototype X-1 machine car and fighting with the Nindroids became the main plotline.
      • Kai was the only Ninja to give a speech at Zane's funeral, hinting at his significant role in the next season.
  • Lloyd also had a larger role in this season. His relationship with Master Garmadon was an additional part of the season's story.
    • He was also focused on in Episode 31, where he was used to complete the transformation for the Overlord with the use of his Golden power.
  • The story between Jay, Cole, and Nya mainly focuses on the love triangle between them, which is mainly shown in Episode 29. However, their roles are relatively minor.
  • Wu had some capacity in the show (like Techno Wu in episodes 28-31), but the appearance of Wu was less than the six main characters.
  • Master Garmadon had returned in this season and had a good role, mostly with his son, Lloyd.
  • Misako also had returned in this season in some capacity in episodes 28, 33, and 34.
