“But it's like Sensei said. Our real power doesn't come from our hands, it comes from inside here. This is Lloyd we're talking about. This is one mission we cannot fail.”
Kai to the ninja in "Ghost Story"

The fifth season of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, subtitled Possession, is preceded by Season 4 and succeeded by Season 6. The focus character is unclear and up for interpretation. The Preeminent and Morro served as the main antagonists and the Ghost Warriors were the villainous faction of the season. Lloyd was the mascot character of the 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.

Story

After Garmadon's sacrifice to stop Chen and the Anacondrai Warriors, 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.
