“What more do you want to possess?!”
Lloyd to Morro

Season 5 of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled Possession, was preceded by Season 4 and succeeded by Season 6. Nya was the focus Ninja, Morro and the Preeminent served as the main antagonists, and the Ghost Warriors were the villainous faction of the season. Lloyd was the mascot character of this season.

Official Description

A grieving Lloyd is possessed by the ghost of Morro – the Master of Wind and Wu’s first student. In Lloyd’s body, Morro renders the other ninja powerless before stealing Wu’s staff. It contains three hidden symbols, the path to finding the Tomb of First Spinjitzu Master. Wu knows that if Morro finds the tomb, he will claim the Realm Crystal. This relic has the power to open the fabric between realms, enabling the powerful Preeminent to enter the NINJAGO world.


After Garmadon's sacrifice to stop Chen and the Anacondrai Cultists, Lloyd is faced with the loss of his father and depression. However, when he is possessed by Morro, former student of Master Wu and the Elemental Master of Wind, the Ninja must stop him from finding the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master and cursing the Sixteen Realms by releasing his master, the Preeminent, while learning a new fighting style, Airjitzu, along the way.

The Ninja become stronger as they find new friends, face their fears, and find secrets that have been hidden. The Ninja face many new adventures as Lloyd is possessed. They uncover the three secrets of Airjitzu, retrieve the Sword of Sanctuary, and locate the first Spinjitzu's Master's tomb.

Master Wu reveals that Nya can have the control over the element of Water as her mother did. She joins the Ninja and unlocks her True Potential to save Ninjago from being destroyed by the Preeminent.

Set list



  • This season, along with Season 4, aired in the same year. (Season 4 in the spring of 2015, and Season 5 in the summer of 2015). This marks the first time in the show that 2 seasons aired in the same year.
  • This is the first season that aired in Latin America that in the USA. They only aired the first episode, "Winds of Change."
  • This was the only season not to include any references to The Great Devourer. Through the series' run, the Devourer has always been mentioned in some capacity and has influenced many major events. 
  • This is the first season that features Airjitzu, as well as introducing Nya as the role of the Elemental Master of Water.
  • This season has the highest kill count of any season to date. Chen, Morro, Garmadon, the Anacondrai Cultists, and the Ghost Warriors all die in "Curseworld, Part II." Clouse and Cole additionally become ghosts in this season.
  • The arc of Garmadon’s death was finished in this season. It started in Season 4, when Garmadon was banished, and concluded in Episode 54 when he died.
  • This season introduces the character of Ronin, who would go on to be an anti-hero and ally to the Ninja in following seasons.
    • Ronin's character arc throughout the season is similar to that of Han Solo's from Star Wars. Both begin as criminals who go on to help the main protagonists for a payment. Yet by the end of the story, they assist the heroes simply because it is the right thing to do and develop relationships with the heroes.
  • This is the second season in a row in which the Ninja lose their Elemental Powers. After losing their powers to the Staff of Elements in Season 4. They lose their powers in this season due to Morro possessing Lloyd's body. This is because Lloyd shares the rest of his Golden Power in "Codename: Arcturus."
  • The season had a very clear darker theme than previous seasons.
  • The season reveals Kai has a fear of water, Jay has a fear of attics, Zane has a fear of Morro and Cole has a fear of becoming a ghost.

  • Cole also had a great role in this season. Cole had his own focus episode, episode 49.
  • Lloyd had a relatively minor role in episodes 46-52, as he only made a few cameo appearances.
    • However, he had a great role in the seasonal finale (episode 54), when Lloyd met his father, Master Garmadon for one last time and the battle between Lloyd and Morro in various realms.
    • Lloyd’s relationship with Morro, as Morro wanted the power that Lloyd had, and Lloyd dealing with the loss of his father gave him a much larger role in the beginning and end of the season.
  • Wu had a more major role compared with season 1-4. His backstory with Morro is vital to the story of season 5.

  • Misako had a bigger role than previous seasons, first helping Wu with the tea farm, then decoding the staff's clues and helping Nya train.
    • This was the first and only season so far to feature Misako in every episode.
  • This season featured the team only consisting of the original Ninja, Kai, Jay, Zane, and Cole, which hasn't been seen since Season 1: Rise of the Snakes.
