Souls are the fundamental essence of a being, creature, or thing, containing their identity and consciousness. Once a soul's physical form is destroyed, the soul in question will either be sent to the Cursed RealmUnderworld, or Departed Realm (being destroyed after being cursed and/or banished to the Underworld and Cursed Realm will result in the being's spirit being sent to the Departed Realm; the Cursed Realm no longer exists, and all souls once held there passed on to the Departed Realm).


  • The Overlord is the only known soul in Ninjago who was not sent to the Cursed Realm, Underworld, or Departed Realm upon his destruction. Instead, he was left in Ninjago, dormant, as he is part of the balance of the realm.[1]
  • Originally, when a ghost from the Cursed Realm would be destroyed, they would reform in the Cursed Realm. This is no longer the case, as the Cursed Realm itself is destroyed.
  • The Djinn Blade was a special blade (once crafted in the realm of Djinjago) that could absorb a being's soul upon impact, allowing the user of the blade to command and utilize their soul to recreate Djinjago.
  • Souls who once were held inside a being that wielded an element (or elemental essence) would be colored based upon the element (or elemental essence) they possessed.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, Cryptor "must have a programmed soul like Zane and Pixal" which is what allowed him to be transported to the Departed Realm upon his destruction.[2] However, Zane went to the Digiverse upon his destruction.[3]
  • The NPCs most likely did not become Androids like Zane or P.I.X.A.L. when they traveled to the real world, but rather, their code was turned into genetic material, the opposite of how the Ninja were able to enter Prime Empire by becoming code.[4] This means that they now also have a soul.
  • Elemental Dragons are more or less manifestations of Elemental Masters' souls.
