Chen brought us here so that only one would remain. Well, we are one!”
Kai to the Elemental Masters in "The Day of the Dragon"

The fourth season of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled The Tournament of Elements, was preceded by Season 3 and succeeded by Season 5. Kai was the focus ninja and mascot, Chen served as the main antagonist, and the Anacondrai warriors were the villainous faction of the season.[1]

Official Description

When Zane sacrificed himself to stop the Golden Master, the power of the Golden Weapons unlocked new abilities within him, revealing a new layer of titanium. The immense energy dispatch destroyed parts of him and caused Zane to vanish into the Digiverse. Only P.I.X.A.L. was aware of Zane’s digital presence – or so she thought...

Story

After the loss of Zane, the team is split apart, and Lloyd seeks to rebuild it. But everything changes when they find out that Zane is alive, and that crime lord, Master Chen, invites the ninja and the other Elemental Masters to a Tournament, so that he can steal their powers in order to complete a spell that will turn him and his worshippers into Anacondrai.
