The Sky Folk built up their city on the mountain above the Dungeons of Shintaro centuries before the Ninja came to be invited to the kingdom. They remained incredibly closed off from the rest of Ninjago, leading much of the population of the island to believe the city, and its people, were a myth.
During the night, the Winged Guards of Shintaro enter Cole's room after they hear him scream. Sometime later, Vania surprises Cole and tells him that he also saw the purple monster, but was unsure if it was real. Vania then shows Cole the tunnel where she thought the purple monster went. The two head down and discover the Dungeons of Shintaro. Cole tells Vania to warn her father and tell the Ninja while he would take on the Skull Sorcerer.
While the Ninja (minus Cole) are walking through the gardens, the citizens of Sky Folk are also in the gardens. Vania soon comes out from the tunnel and warns the Ninja about everything she saw in the Dungeons of Shintaro including Cole who stayed behind to fight the Skull Sorcerer. They inform Vangelis, but he's disappointed in Vania for putting Cole in danger. He tells the Ninja he'll send reinforcement to save Cole, and doesn't allow the Ninja to venture into the caves.
The Ninja head outside the Throne Room and still want to save Cole, so Vania shows them the tunnel.
Vania and Wu use cardboard cuts of the Ninja to show the Winged Guards of Shintaro that the Ninja are still at the Ivory City although they are still underground.
Vania and Chompy help save Cole from the giant spider. After reaching the surface, Vania, Cole, and Wu warn Vangelis about what they encountered, but Vangelis reveals to be the Skull Sorcerer. He then pushes a button causing Cole and Wu to fall into a pit while Vania goes after them.
Vangelis orders his guards to imprison Chompy after making up a lie.
Meanwhile, Vania tries to rescue Cole and Wu, but her wings break and all three fall and until they get stuck on a spider web. They are able to free themselves and continue to fall until hitting a stream. While fighting to stay alive, they encounter a whirlpool, so Cole uses his Elemental Powers to stop the whirlpool. However, they fall through and find themselves at Rock-Bottom.
Vania listens as Korgran explains their story of how they got to Rock-Bottom.
Vania follows Cole who is looking for a way out of Rock-Bottom. Plundar complains about looking for so long, and Vania comments about Cole's leadership and not to underestimate him.
After Cole finds his Elemental Energy, Vania follows as the group is able to swim out of Rock-Bottom. They then encounter a lava field and the Magma Monster. Vania tells Wu about the incoming fireballs so Wu can deflect the shots.
After defeating the Magma Monster, everyone including Vania is able to cross onto the other side.
After hearing of the planned truce meeting, Vangelis heads into the Dungeons of Shintaro to revive Grief-Bringer. His army then heads to the truce meeting where they force the Geckles and Munce to flee.
Vania along with Cole, Wu, and the Upply flee from the Magma Monster and find some mine carts. They decide to ride it and discover the Heart of the Mountain. Upon exploring, they realize Cole's mother performed Spinjitzu Burst, so Cole tries but fails. Vania then criticizes Wu for not helping Cole after Cole got frustrated and left the temple.
The Skull Sorcerer leads the Awakened Warriors and Grief-Bringer to the Geckle Strong-Cave where the Ninja, Geckles, and Munce are hiding. He attempts to strike a deal with Gulch and Murtessa, but they decline it. That's when he orders Grief-Bringer and the Awakened Warriors to destroy the door.
After the door is obliterated, the Ninja decide to surrender themselves and allow the Geckles and Munce to remain free. However, the Skull Sorcerer lies and captures everyone.
Vania helps the Upply install wheels to the Fire Stone Mech. Vania then heads into the mech along with Cole who uses the mech to push the mine carts where everyone else is. During their journey, Vania comments about the Magma Monster, and Cole thinks he's no longer in the cave until they see him.
While being chased, they encounter the Dire Bats and Vania is almost pulled out by one. Cole and Vania go back to fighting the Magma Monster where they defeat it and save everyone in the mine carts.
After reaching the surface, they head to the Throne Room to free Chompy. However, Hailmar and the guards order for Cole's arrest. They don't comply and fight the guards. During the fight, Chompy turns into a huge dragon and allows Cole and the Upply to escape. Vania then tries to reason with Hailmar, but he charges at her.
Vangelis taunts the now caged Ninja and voices his intentions to have Grief-Bringer destroy them in front of the re-imprisoned Geckles and Munce. He also reveals his identity to them and confirms that he did in fact steal the Blades of Deliverance from the tribes.
Later, when Cole retrieves the Blades and the Upply free the imprisoned workers, Vangelis confronts Cole, mocking him for putting faith in the swords. The two engage in fierce combat as a battle to free the workers in the Keep begins.
While everyone is fighting the Awakened Warriors and Grief-Bringer, Vania and the Winged Guards of Shintaro arrive and provide aid. Meanwhile, the Skull Sorcerer and Cole continue to battle. At one point, the Skull Sorcerer destroys the Blades of Deliverance and uses the Skull of Hazza D'ur to blast Cole, but Cole remembers the promise he made to his mother and unlocks the Spinjitzu Burst. This causes the Skull of Hazza D'ur to be destroyed as well as the Awakened Warriors and Grief-Bringer. When Vangelis no longer has his costume, he begs for mercy, and Vania orders her guards to take him away.
At the ceremony, Hailmar presents Vania as the queen of the Kingdom of Shintaro. Before the Ninja leave, Lloyd apologizes for not trusting her in the first place and she accepts his apology. She then talks to Cole and says goodbye.
