“You can't lay a hand on me! I'm faster than fast, swifter than swift!”
— Griffin Turner

Speed is a secondary element in Ninjago. It is generally associated with the color white and corresponds with the Elemental Speed Dragon.

Users' Abilities

  • Superhuman Speed - This allows the user to move with extreme speed. It also grants the user's attacks to be quicker and allows the user to run fast for a long time.
    • Extreme Force Generation - The user can generate great amounts of physical force (like kinetic energy or friction) with many uses, like to run up walls.
    • Superhuman Leaping - The user can use his super speed to jump higher. For example, Turner use his Speed to leap higher during his fight with Gravis.
    • Superhuman Agility - This elemental power increases the agility of the user. One example is in "The Invitation" when Turner ran rapidly around Chen's Ferry while jumping over and dodging obstacles.
    • Accelerated Perception - The user can see the world as if it were moving in slow-motion. This enhances the reflexes of the user.
    • Superhuman Reflexes - Technically just Accelerated Perception, this power naturally comes as the world is moving so slow reflexes are now at superhuman levels.
