Skylor Chen (nicknamed Sky by Chamille) is the current Elemental Master of Amber and the daughter of the late Master Chen. Born with her mother's Elemental Power, Amber, Skylor was raised by Chen on his island while mastering her powers. Under her father's command, she took part in the Tournament of Elements and served as Chen's spy to stir tension between the ninja and the Elemental Masters. Skylor's growing affections for Kai led her to betray her father, but he ultimately managed to turn his army into Anacondrai. Skylor joined the ninja and the other Elemental Masters in a fight with her father's army at the Corridor of Elders. The conflict ended when Garmadon sacrificed himself to curse her father's army. Following the battle, Skylor took over the family business and began working at Chen's noodle house in Ninjago City.
When Nadakhan imprisoned the other Elemental Masters in the Djinn Blade, Skylor and Jay were the only ones left free. Jay created a rag-tag team to raid Djinjago, with Skylor being a member. Due to Jay's final wish, recent events were undone and Skylor was never called into action. Later, Skylor was visited by Kai and Nya when they suspected their parents were villains. Skylor consoled them, having gone through the same situation, although theirs proved to be different.
At some point after this and before the supposed demise of the original ninja, Skylor regained her powers. She and the other Elemental Masters rescued Lloyd and the others, forming a new team in a bid to resist Lord Garmadon's oppressive rule. She, along with Dareth, Lloyd, Nya, and Mystake survived an attack by the Sons of Garmadon that captured the rest of the resistance. Mistake and Skylor eventually went to Garmadon with the intent of Skylor stealing his power of Destruction and Creation to hopefully stop his Colossus. While Skylor was successful, Mystake is incapacitated and killed by Garmadon. Skylor and Garmadon fight for control over the Colossus, with Garmadon victorious as the power, overwhelmed Skylor, causing her to fall sick to it. When Garmadon is eventually defeated by Lloyd, and his powers disappear, Skylor returns to normal health and is overjoyed to see Kai, who had returned from an alternate realm with the other ninja. She is then hailed as a hero of Ninjago for her part during the takeover.
Sometime later, after Nya's emergence to the Endless Sea and apparent death, Skylor attended her memorial to honor her. One year later, she was recruited by the Ninja to help them keep a returning Nya's water form stable in ice while they went illegaly to Kryptarium Prison and Borg Tower to recruit Aspheera and retrieve her scepter in order to strip Nya's powers from her to return her human form. Just when Skylor had problems keeping up, the Ninja and Aspheera arrived and had her convinced to successfully return Nya's human form in exchange for letting her escape from the arriving New Ninja. The Ninja were sentenced to prison, with Skylor later defending them.
At some point, she went on a search for her mother after seeing her in a vision.
Accepting her father's proposal to participate in the Tournament of Elements, Skylor aided in recruiting the other Elemental Masters. She was present at the pier when Clouse arrived on Chen's ferry to take them to the island. Upon looking back at Kai, he became interested to learn more about her and fought in her defense when Karlof tried to fight her for her cloak. After Clouse stopped the fight, Skylor helped Kai to his feet, copying his powers in the process.
When the ship docked, she was the last to get off the ship behind the ninja. Trying to impress her, Kai shoved the others out of the way, though she paid no attention to his gesture. After Chen explained the tournament rules and had his kabuki show the Elemental Masters to their rooms, Skylor formally met Kai after he discovered her room was next to his. Kai showed off his element while asking what hers was, though she didn't reply and gave a small laugh when he let the fire in his hand get out of control.
When the Tournament started, she and Kai raced towards a Jadeblade on the roof. Although she came close, Kai threw her off a balcony and went back to save her, throwing her to the Jadeblade and causing him to go after one Karlof was finding. In the throne room, she and the other ninja were shocked Karlof had the last Jadeblade but cheered after Kai took the Jadeblade and won. Later, Skylor came out of her room while Jay was coming to Kai's room and narrowly missed seeing the Blue Ninja after the Red Ninja pushed him off the balcony. After comforting Kai about what happened to Karlof, she called him lucky for having his friends to back him up. Kai then went back into his room and waited for Skylor to do the same before going back out to help Jay. Soon after, Jay found eye-holes leading to her room, and Kai, upon hearing from the Master of Lightning that she was training, went up to see her element, though Cole assumed he was falling for her. Just as they were about to leave, Jay and Kai saw Skylor blast out a jet of fire, causing them to make the false assumption that she and Kai were related.
She didn't fight in any of the following matches, though she did worry for Kai upon seeing that he was meant to fight. She didn't see the first 2 matches between Griffin, Gravis, Neuro, and Bolobo, but saw Kai's match against Ash. Kai encountered many close calls but managed to win in the end much to Skylor's relief.
Skylor was announced as one of the opponents of the next match, where she went up against Jacob, the Master of Sound in a vase-smashing match to find the Jadeblade. As the match started, she struggled to find the Jadeblade due to Jacob sensing her movements, but she absorbed his powers and let off a sonic wave. By this point, Garmadon told the ninja her true element was Amber, the power of absorption. She nearly gets hit by darts but uses the holes they made to confuse Jacob and take the Jadeblade, winning the match. Kai cheers for her.
When the match between Lloyd and Chamille is announced, she found herself constantly helping Kai back on his feet since he couldn't skate. When the match starts, she asks him what could be gained should Lloyd be eliminated but when he says he doesn't think about it, she tells him he should before knocking him down. Throughout the match, she becomes convinced Kai being a horrible skater and indirectly sabotaging Lloyd was his way of getting him eliminated: as a result when he sabotages Chamille, she attempts to criticize him but he lashes out that ninja stay together, which she states she's not. Kai soon informs her of Chen's plan to take everyone's Elemental powers and she uses Gravity to keep the scorekeeper in check. After Lloyd wins, Chen declares he cheated, but everyone stands up for him, including Skylor who tells him if everyone quits there is no tournament. After Chamille's elimination, she warns Kai that the ninja is playing a dangerous game, and Chen will look for other ways to knock them out of the Tournament.
She was seen at the buffet with the other seven Masters and Garmadon when Chen decided to offer the Staff of Elements up for grabs. While dining, she finds the fortune cookie with Cole's message of breaking out with Zane, which was meant for the ninja. She then gave Kai the fortune revealing Cole had found Zane so he could still trust her; unbeknownst to her, Nya told the ninja one of their allies was a spy for Chen, putting her at risk of exposure.
In Kai's room, she accused Neuro of being the spy, revealing she absorbed his powers and nearly fought him. When Garmadon suggested everyone is checked for the Anacondrai tattoo, it soon came down to Skylor and Shade. She tried to guilt-trip Kai by saying he doesn't trust her, but he states he does; luckily for her, Shade ran off before she revealed her tattoo. She then hid her tattoo using Form and showed her back to Kai to mess with the ninja. She later told Chen about Cole and Zane's escape, acknowledging him as her father, and joined him in laughing in their possible triumph.
For the next round of the tournament, Skylor and the other fighters boarded a blimp and were taken high above the island. There, she was dropped out of the blimp with other finalists, then she caught a parachute and deployed it. After a little time, she landed safely on the island and started finding Nya.
A few hours later, Skylor met up with Kai agreed to search for Nya with him. After seeing the explosion from Jay's ElectroMech, Kai attempted to cross through a swamp thinking Nya was part of the explosion and Skylor offered an alternative: unfortunately, she made the mistake of freezing the water, which ultimately exposed her as the spy, as Zane wasn't in or near the competition, and she has to touch an elemental master to absorb their powers, which means she would have no way to use the element of ice without meeting him. Upon realizing this, Kai called her out and Skylor, proven guilty, sadly told him that she couldn't disobey her father, shocking Kai as he'd never thought that Skylor would be Chen's daughter, just his minion. Chen soon arrived and ordered Skylor to capture Kai, though Kai melted the ice, forcing Skylor to help her father from drowning. Kai ended up being captured and was left in shock with what Skylor had done.
In the Underground Temple, Skylor witnessed the captured Masters being chained down into position and looked away, though Kai told her Chen still needed her power. She told him she didn't have a choice in being the spy and was flattered when he asked who planned to have him fall for her as it worked. After her father took their powers, she told him to spare Kai as she saw inside his head and claimed he could be helpful in their cause: Chen saw that she liked him and granted her wish, releasing the master of Fire.
Later, she went with her father, Clouse, and Kai to see Garmadon and Nya, who were captured and chained up in the serpent's den. Upon learning Chen got Kai to turn on Lloyd, Garmadon grabbed and threatened Skylor to be released, though Chen called his bluff and he let her go: this ultimately left her angered that her father didn't even worry for her. As Chen and Clouse went ahead to plan the ceremony, Kai pulled Skylor back, not only asking her how she puts up with her father's ignorance but also told her of his plan to destroy the Staff of Elements. When Skylor asks why he'd tell her what she did, Kai states she let him go for a reason, with her feelings for him being the main reason, something she couldn't deny.
When the ceremony begins and Lloyd is brought in by Kapau and Chope, Chen has Skylor give up her powers, which leaves her with a headache. Chen proceeds to take Lloyd's Energy and has Clouse begin to recite the spell. Kai then has Skylor position herself beside him with the excuse of standing beside him in his moment of triumph. Kai then tells Chen he forgot the element of surprise, signaling Skylor to kick the Staff out of her father's hands and Kai uses it to free Lloyd, hold off the Cultists and freeze Clouse. Lloyd tells him to destroy the Staff, but Kai begins to become corrupted by its power. Just before he uses it on Lloyd and Skylor, the Elemental Masters' busts in and attack, causing him to drop the Staff. Kai grabs the Staff before Chen does and destroys it, restoring everyone's elements and allowing the ninja to capture the Cultists forcing Chen, Clouse, Eyezor, Kapau, Chope, and Zugu to escape with Skylor now their prisoner in the chaos.
Behind the waterfall, Kapau and Chope are ecstatic about guarding Skylor, and the fact that with most of the cultists captured, they're now in Chen's inner circle. Skylor messes with them to let her scratch her head, which Eyezor catches and growls at the two.Chen discovered Skylor absorbed all of the elements of the Elemental Masters and realized she could help them finish the spell.Chen has Kapau and Chope release her and he claims he was wrong about everything: however, she immediately catches on to his true intentions and points out the staff's crystal was destroyed. Chen reveals that it was found in the island's Crystal Caves and they could go there to complete the spell since her power melded with all the others while in the staff. Skylor points out taking everything would be fatal to her and turns furious when her father dismisses the point for his selfish gain. She then uses her powers to hijack a rocket board and escape, renouncing her father while doing so. Zugu tells Chen the Bladecopter is finished, to which he sends all the grunts after his daughter while he hops in the copter with Clouse.
Skylor sent a mental message to Neuro to warn the ninja of Chen's plans and they moved out to find her. As she escaped, she was pursued by Chen and Clouse but Garmadon and Cole held them off and while Garmadon dealt with Clouse, Chen pursued her but Kai came to her aid and with both using the power of Fire they created a smokescreen which blinded Chen's path of vision. This proved to give them time for Skylor to use the power of Form to turn into Kai and lure her father away from the area. As Kai and Skylor move to regroup with the other Masters, but they are captured by Kapau and Chope with a vengestone net.
In the Crystal Caves, the transformation is revealed to have begun, Kapau reciting the spell in Clouse's place. As Chope finishes the spell (Kapau having fainted from its effects), Kai urges Skylor to resist the transformation. However, the transformation is completed which Chen cheers for, while back on the coast, Garmadon, the ninja, and the Elemental Masters try to hold off the snake-turned warriors,
Sometime later, Kai acceptance of her new form allows him to summon an Elemental Fire Dragon which the two rides to join up with the other Masters. They arrive after Chen's army escaped conquering Ninjago in time for Kai to support Zane's theory of facing his fear after he summoned a Titanium Dragon. Kai's encouraging words motivated the other masters, allowing them to conquer their fears to summon their own Elemental Dragons. The Elemental Masters fly back to Ninjago in order to stop Chen's forces.
Upon returning to Ninjago City, she was displeased as the citizens were scared of her Serpentine-like appearance, wishing she could still change forms. Kai comforted her by saying she has changed mentally. As Lloyd sent the Elemental Masters on guard patrol, she noticed her hand turning back to normal, discovering the spell was temporary. Upon arriving at the Samurai X Cave, Kai introduced her to Wu and Misako, the latter comforting her upon hearing she was Chen's daughter. She remained at the cave while the ninja, Garmadon, and Wu went to find Pythor at Kryptarium Prison. While the ninja and the Elemental Masters were chasing the Noodle trucks, she realized the trucks were pulling them away from the villages, making them fall into Chen's trap.
After the ninja and the fighters were split up and the next Serpentine War had begun, Chen exposed Garmadon's stealing the letter, causing Wu to angrily declare him as anything but a Master, to which Skylor prevented him from attacking his brother. When everyone returned to the Samurai X Cave, Kai remarked on how fast the spell was wearing off, as purple fumes were rising from her body. She was present at the battle at the Corridor of Elders and attacked her father stating she had a few "daddy issues”.
She then witnessed Chen being cursed by Arcturus ignoring his pleas for help just as she turned human again. Later, Kai gave her an invite to join the team, but she declined as she had the Noodle House to run, but would be run for noodles, and not an underground crime. Just before being able to give him a farewell kiss, a begging Dareth barged in, with Skylor promising to reintroduce his favorite item, the Puffy Potsticker, much to his relief. After promising to keep in touch with Kai, she left.
True to her word, Skylor took over the family business and was serving there on New Year's Eve when Ronin was present. The two briefly discussed their pasts, to which seeing his Aeroblade reminded her of the ninja.
While Jay was seeking help to save the ninja, he asked Skylor for help. When he went to seek help, she was kicking someone out, presumably a rowdy customer or a thief. She joined Dareth, Echo Zane, Soto, Ronin and the Police Commissioner to get to the new Djinjago. She later grabbed a weapon and fought off the Sky Pirates while Jay got into the Djinn Blade. Later, when the ninja, Misako, and Wu were free, she and the rest of Jay's team got ready to stop Nadakhan's wedding with Nya.
She went with Master Wu and the rest of Jay's team to help Ninjago from the falling parts that Nadakhan used to create a new Djinjago.
While at the Noodle House, Skylor was visited by Kai seeking advice as he had just discovered evidence suggesting that his parents were villains. Speaking from experience, Skylor reassured him that just because his parents were evil didn't mean he would fall victim to their path in life. The two were briefly interrupted by the arrival of Nya, whom was aghast to find Skylor there, as the Master of Water believed her to be the new Samurai X.
After confirming that she in fact was not the mysterious warrior, Skylor went to get the siblings noodles, only to return to find neither still had an appetite. Skylor then attempted to provide the two with some insight on the matter, but they were quickly summoned away by Lloyd. Skylor wanted to help them, but Nya cutting her off thinking she was offering them to-go boxes, leaving Skylor alone to finish the uneaten noodles.
When Kai visited the Noodle House and mentioned how a new gang was supposedly recruiting members, Skylor thought back to a recent encounter with a few guys in her restaurant who had mentioned the "School for Crooks." Though Kai was planning on investigating with Zane, Skylor convinced the Master of Fire to team up with her for old times' sake.
That evening, Skylor and Kai went to the docks, where they spotted and gave chase to the cloaked figure who was presumably the leader of the criminal school. At one point during the chase, Kai used Airjitzu, a technique Skylor had not seen before, to bring himself and Skylor closer to the unknown individual.
The two finally cornered the stranger, only for him to reveal himself as Ronin. He explained that the "School for Crooks" was in fact a criminal reform course, and the gang Kai had heard about was something else entirely. Skylor and Kai bid farewell to Ronin as he mentioned his appreciation for the Noodle House's Puffy Potstickers.
Skylor watches a cloaked figure hurry away from afar. Later on, she picks up Lloyd, Nya, Misako, P.I.X.A.L., and Dareth after Griffin, Karlof, and Shade saved them from the Sons of Garmadon.
Skylor takes the ninja and the Elemental Masters to a hideout. Lloyd asks about her powers and she reveals that her Elemental Powers have returned and says that his will soon do the same.
Skylor helps Nya in building weapons that could help them fight. She helps Lloyd in infiltrating Garmadon's base before Garmadon begins to approach them, Lloyd asks her to try to combine the elements she absorbed after she states she never tried that. Skylor is successful in cloaking them from their foe but is exhausted from the act and she remarks on learning a new trick, as her friends tend to her.
They break into Ultra Violet's broadcasting room, which disrupts her show and they take control of the broadcast. Skylor watches as Lloyd gives his message before he stops after seeing his previous loss to his father, Skylor noticed this on the screen and was worried as Lloyd was shaken. However, she watched as he regained his composure and issued a challenge to his father.
The Resistance celebrated Lloyd's speech. They started planning on who else they could recruit to help them.
When the Sons of Garmadon attacked the Garbage Depot, the Resistance fought them. She eventually got on the armored vehicle with Lloyd, Nya, and Dareth. The Colossus stepped on them but P.I.X.A.L. attacked Garmadon, freeing them.
The remaining Resistance members try to comfort Lloyd. When they see a rat, she reveals herself to be Mystake. She told them she will explain how she was able to transform after she eats.
With Ninjago City invaded by the Sons of Garmadon, the Resistance took shelter. They were shocked to hear Mystake is an Oni.
When the Sons of Garmadon started asking who seen Lloyd, Lloyd had a plan. The Resistance took out the Sons of Garmadon and surrounded Harumi.
Harumi informed the Resistance that the Sons of Garmadon would find her. Mystake and Skylor come in carrying the Oni Mask of Hatred, but Lloyd refused to use it. On the rooftop, the Resistance thought of a plan to pose Skylor as a prisoner and Mystake as her captor, being transformed into Harumi. They would be able to get close enough to Garmadon, so Skylor can copy his Elemental Power to control the Colossus.
They set their plan into action, but Garmadon was suspicious when they noticed "Harumi" didn't add that Skylor can copy Elemental Powers. They were interrupted when the real Harumi approaches them.
Skylor touches Lord Garmadon with the help of Mystake. After escaping, she informed the rest of the Resistance about Mystake's fate and tries to use her newfound power to control the Colossus. After struggling, she was able to control Colossus for a while but was "poisoned” and rendered unresponsive.
As Skylor is unable to escape the Colossus on her own, she is dependent on Lloyd to carry her. They made it to the Battle Wagon and hit Ultra Violet with it.
When Wu and the ninja meet up with Lloyd, Nya, and Dareth in Ninjago City, Kai expresses his concern about Skylor after she is brought out of the Battle Wagon. Wu tells Nya and Dareth to look after Skylor while the others tended to defeating Garmadon and the Colossus. After Garmadon loses his power, Skylor wakes up in Kai's arms. Skylor is then seen celebrating with the ninja and the citizens of Ninjago, where she shares a sweet moment with Kai.
Skylor appears at Nya's memorial, mourning the departure of her good friend.
Skylor surprises Kai and the Ninja when she arrives at the the Hangar Bay. Lloyd explains that he contacted her (presumably via phone). She explains how she can use her abilities to take Zane's place in freezing and stabilizing Nya's water body, so that he can help out the Ninja at Kryptarium Prison. After a few hours later, Skylor comments that she is unsure of how long her powers will last as P.I.X.A.L. tries to buy more time with cooling units. When her powers start to fade, she notes how the Ninja were supposed to have returned hours ago and begins to console and comfort Nya to hold on in her frozen state.
While the Ninja are in the midst of breaking Aspheera out of Kryptarium Prison, Skylor continues freezing Nya with the help of P.I.X.A.L. in the Hangar Bay. She exclaims her concern with how long her powers will last, but as her powers begin to wear off, Zane returns in the nick of time to continue the freezing process. She then replicates Zane's elemental power of Ice again to freeze Nya as the Ninja set off to obtain Aspheera's staff.
Skylor continues freezing Nya. She is again concerned about how long her powers will last, but she barely manages to last until P.I.X.A.L.. uses the last of the cooling machines and Zane returns to continue the freezing process. She later watches as Aspheera absorbs Nya's elemental powers and as the Ninja willingly turn themselves in.
Skylor attends the Ninja's sentencing and wonders if the judge will be lenient. Later, Skylor comments to Wu on Nya's sense of powerlessness and feelings of guilt following the Ninja's sentencing to Kryptarium Prison. Wu responds that Ninja broke the law and thus still needed to be held accountable and that Nya isn't powerless, recalling that before she became the Water Ninja, she was Samurai X.
Skylor and Dareth visit the Ninja at Kryptarium Prison. In the visitor's room, the Ninja tell them of Lloyd's encounter with a guy in a kabuki mask, who told him about the Crystal King and organizing a council. Skylor then informed them that Vangelis had escaped from his prison in Shintaro. As their visiting time is up, Jay asks Skylor how Nya is, and she says the judge is denying her visitation rights and that she blames herself for their incarceration.
In Shadow of Ronin (non-canon)
Skylor is a playable character in LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin. She can be purchased for 150,000 studs after collecting her character token in Level 1: Chen's Island. Unlike her physical minifigure appearance, Skylor wears the hood she wore in Episode 35 and 36 of the television series. She uses melee attacks and possesses no special abilities.
In the Tournament app
Skylor is a playable character in LEGO Ninjago: Tournament. She can be purchased for 300,000 studs. Like Neuro and Chen, her special ability is Overload.
- Main article: Skylor's relationships
Skylor has short eyelashes and orange lipstick on her face, with long cherry red hair in a ponytail. In Season 9, her hair became a darker shade of red.
She has an orange hood and suit, with black gloved hands. Her suit sports a Japanese symbol on the chest, with a light orange belt and a strap with more symbols on either side of her waist. On her Jungle hood, the Chinese symbol for "6" (六）is emblazoned above the eyeholes. From "Skybound" to "The Hands of Time", her sleeves became maroon along with her hood and she wears leather armor. In "Hunted", her sleeves are now gunmetal gray to match her armor, with the right half of her torso covered by it. She also wears dark red gloves and a red utility belt.
In her Anacondrai form, Skylor has purple skin covered by scales. Her hair and lips become purple as well, and her eyebrows become black. Her outfit remains the same, but with some parts of it torn, such as her arms and waist, where she has a long purple tail like the others.
- Amber: Skylor was a powerful user of the elemental power of Amber. She inherited her powers form her mother.
- Elemental Replication - Skylor can absorb and replicate the powers of other Elemental Masters by only physical contact.
- Ability Training - Skylor can replicate other powers/abilities simply by learning how to use them.
- Attack Recording -Skylor can gather/record an attack from an opponent and use that attack as their own. .
- Elemental Combination - Skylor can combine the Elemental Powers they have gathered to help attack or escape from enemies. She used this ability to combine Shade and Mr. Pale's respective elements to avoid being spotted by Garmadon.
At first, Skylor was shown to be distant from the other Elemental Masters, as she guilt-tripped Kai by saying that he didn't trust her and even got angry at Kai while showing him her back giving Kai some proof.
She also had guilt when she looked away when Kai was imprisoned by Master Chen and his army. However, after she developed feelings for Kai she was seeing what she was doing wrong and betrayed her father to help out the elemental masters, proving that she was capable of kindness.
In Season 6 (in an erased timeline), Skylor shows a loyal side towards Jay and The Ninja Replacements, gladly siding with them in order to save her future boyfriend and her other friends from the Djinn Blade and save Nya from marrying Nadakhan. She also shows that she likes sports as she chooses to run after Sqiffy and Bucko in "Operation Land Ho!".
In Season 7, Skylor has shown sympathy towards Kai and Nya when they were struggling with the recent news that their parents were alive, even bringing them free noddles and offering help on the ninja team, though they deny.
In Season 9, Skylor returns once again, having learned about the original ninja's and Wu's "deaths" and joined Lloyd's and Nya's Resistance team. Throught the season, Skylor shows compassion and protectiveness of mainly Lloyd, her leader, whom she understood his hard time as a de-powered elemental master since she also was de-powered once, and warmed him up saying that she believes his powers will come back in time. She seemed in good terms with the other elemental masters (despite having helped her father steal their powers in the past) and had no qualms working together with Nya to build the Battle Wagon. Skylor has proved her loyalty to the Resistance (and the ninja) by copying Garmadon's power and risking her life just for the sake of Ninjago and her friends, and when the ninja returned and liberated the city from the Sons of Garmadon, Skylor was hailed as a hero and happily hugged Kai.
Tournament of Elements
The beautiful but dangerous Skylor has the ability to steal the powers of other elemental fighters and make use of them herself. She seems to have a mysterious secret …and to hold an equally mysterious attraction for Kai, the Ninja of Fire.
Tournament of Elements (Explore)
This mysterious beauty makes the fire in Kai flame up high. He falls for her smile in an instant, though she is very secretive about who she is and what her powers are. She does not seem to be afraid of very much. But when it comes to the kindling in Kai’s chest, this girl is cold as ice... or is she?
Tournament of Elements (2017 Museum gallery)
Skylor, the mysterious Master of Amber and daughter of Master Chen, has the uncanny ability to absorb and replicate the Elemental Power of others. Her mother was an original Elemental Master. Skylor was definitely the recipient of Kai’s affections from the start. It was the strength of this bond that helped her defy her father. Not many know, but Skylor still possesses the powers of each of the Elemental Masters fighting in the Tournament of Elements. When Master Chen was banished to the Cursed Realm, she decided to take over the family noodle business and lead a quieter and normal life.
Behind the scenes
- The LEGO product crew came up with the idea to have a new female orange ninja, and the Hageman Brothers wanted a "dangerous undercover dame" and expanded on this to fully create her character.
- She is similar to Vania in that they are both female characters whose father was evil and the overall antagonist of a season, with Vania's father being Vangelis.
- Skylor's elemental symbol is the Chinese character "六", meaning "six." This references her role as the "sixth ninja." However, she never actually became a ninja, with Nya instead becoming the sixth ninja.
- Skylor's original name was Sam before it was changed.
- Her name was also originally going to be spelled "Skyler" but was changed for legal reasons.
- Tommy Andreasen's original design for Skylor was rejected by the Hageman Brothers because it was too "femme fatale."
- A story about Skylor's mother known as Amber Legacy was created but never published.
- Skylor's appearance changed slightly for Hunted. Her hair turned into a darker shade of red, and her mouth was moved slightly lower on her face. However, this was not reflected in her Hunted Minifigure, which came in 70651 Throne Room Showdown, still with a bright red hairpiece and face similar to her previous figures.
- She is similar to Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games Trilogy. Both use bows as their main weapon (albeit only in the sets in Skylor's case), competed in a fighting contest, and in said contest, both initially pretended to fall in love with a character (Kai and Peeta Mellark respectively) for their own gains, but later actually fell in love with said characters.
- Her 2018 Minifigure has katanas, shurikens, and an armor piece, yet she is not shown having them in the show.
- She is the first Ninjago Minifigure to have the utility belt piece, originally used on Batman from The LEGO Batman Movie. It would later be used for Clutch Powers in 40342 LEGO NINJAGO 2019 Minifigure Set, though in the show it did not appear as a separate piece as it did for Skylor.
- Skylor, Killow, Harumi, Ultra Violet, Garmadon, and the First Spinjitzu Master are the only known characters to see Mystake's true form.
- She is also the only member of the Resistance and current ninja ally to do so.
- In the Korean shows, Skylor's name is pronounced as "Skyla."
- The name Skylor means protection, fugitive and scholar in Danish.
- Skylor's name is credited as "Skyler" in the fourth and fifth seasons, "Skylar" in Skybound, and correctly as "Skylor" from Hunted onward. She is uncredited in her appearance in the seventh season.
- Each of Skylor outfits is used for two consecutive seasons. She also uses her outfit from Season 4 in Season 5, her outfit from Season 6 she also uses in Season 7 and her outfit from Season 9 she also uses in Season 10.
- In Season 14, she uses the generic face previously used by Adventure-Ready Woman.
- However, this is slightly changed in Season 15, where she still retains the same face design, but her eyebrows are unique and more pointed, as has been the case in all previous seasons except Season 14. She also has other eyelashes, similar to the ones she had before Season 14.
- In Season 15, she wears the same suit as in Season 9 onwards, but has added armor printing on her arms and also leg printing that is based on her Season 6 suit.
- Although she wasn't an official ninja, she had a Zukin outfit. Like the ninja's suits, it was most likely a gift from Chen, though it is unknown why none of the other masters received them.
- Skylor lacks a Tournament outfit in both the show and sets.
- Skylor's powers allow her the exact same abilities as the Staff of Elements, except she copies the Elemental Masters's element instead of stealing it.
- She is referred to as a woman in The Search for Zane and School for Crooks, implying she is of legal age.
- She is the only Elemental Master besides the ninja and Morro to appear in Possession.
- Skylor, Chen, and Garmadon, are the only fake Anacondrai who keep their Minifigure heads, instead of gaining a snake head like the other Anacondrai Cultists. This may be because she, Garmadon, and Chen did not have tattoos on their face.
- While in the Tournament, Skylor absorbed every power of all the Elemental Masters. In the time this happened, she became the second-most powerful Master in Ninjago, next to Lloyd and before Nya.
- However, she absorbed Zane's abilities of Ice and Cole, Jay, and Lloyd abilities off-screen. The only Elemental Master's abilities she has absorbed on-screen were Kai and Jacob's.
- In addition, she only uses Kai's Fire, Ash's Smoke, and Chamille's Form for the majority of the fourth season, implying these are her favorite powers to use. She has used Zane's Ice and Shade's Shadow as well as Jacob's Sound and Gravis' Gravity.
- It was said that her element melded with the remaining elements while inside the Staff of Elements.
- In "Saving Faith," she absorbed Garmadon's Destruction powers.
- If the Time Twins still had their powers, it might have been possible for her to absorb them.
- However, if she tried to absorb the full power of the First Spinjitzu Master, it would "probably cause her to explode."
- Skylor confirmed that her powers had returned in "Iron & Stone," after having not been seen using them since becoming an Anacondrai in Tournament of Elements.
- Skylor is an unlockable character in The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame. Her blind bag can be found in the level "The Uncrossable Jungle."
- Her Tournament of Elements minifigure has a mask covering her eyes, which never appeared in the show.
- Skylor has been a part of two teams set up by the ninja: Ninja Replacements and the Resistance. However, due to the events of Skybound being erased, she does not remember being a part of Jay's team.
- She is one of the strongest Elemental Masters due to the fact that she can mimic other powers.
- Skylor, along with Neuro, Shade, Karlof, Tox, Griffin Turner, and Mr. Pale, return in Hunted.
- In "Radio Free Ninjago," it was revealed that Skylor can absorb two Elemental Powers and combine them, though this episode is her first time doing so.
- In both seasons where she was a main character, there was at least one episode where she doesn't speak, being "Versus" and "Lessons for a Master."
- A story on LEGO.com released alongside Season 12 imagines if Kai met Skylor in Prime Empire, only to discover it was another person using a Skylor avatar. Though it is not said who the avatar would be, the silhouette suggests it would be Unagami.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, she will play a bigger role in the future.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, "Skylor doesn't have people's powers permanently. She absorbs a limited amount that she will them deplete by using it, or the power will fade away in time. ... something which will become clear and elaborated upon in future story ;-)"
- In February 2022, Andreasen stated that it was "Very likely" Skylor's or her mother's backstory would be explored "in some form."
- This was also confirmed in Season 15: Crystalized, as when trying to keep Nya frozen using Zane's Ice, she became weakened when she used them for too long and they were nearly depleted.
