Hey, you can't lay a hand on me! I'm faster than fast, swifter than swift!

Speed is an element in Ninjago. It is generally associated with the colors white and red, and corresponds with the Elemental Speed Dragon.

Users' abilities

  • Superhuman Speed - This allows the user to move at extreme speed. It also allows the user's attacks to be quicker and enables them to run fast for a long time and escape from enemy attacks. It is possible for some users to dash, augment their speed to reach incredible velocities instantaneously, reduce it, or perform a burst to move even faster to the point of short-range teleportation.
    • Extreme Force Generation - The user can generate great amounts of physical force (like kinetic energy or friction) with many uses, such as running up on walls and water.
    • Superhuman Leaping - The user can use his super-speed to jump higher. For example, Turner used his Speed to leap higher during his fight with Gravis. It is possible that this ability can be used to do a double jump and a jump kick.
    • Superhuman Agility - This ability 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.


The Symbol of speed

The symbol for Speed appears to be in the shape of an hourglass with curls branching off of it.

  • When the user uses the power of Speed, they leave behind a blurred trail of their colors in their wake. In Griffin's case, a blur of mostly red and white. In Skylor's case, her blur is mostly yellowish-orange and dark red.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, Griffin is not as fast as The Flash from DC Comics.[2] As such, this power most likely does not allow him to travel through time.[3]
  • Regarding what Turner's Spinjitzu Burst could be, Tommy Andreasen joked that he "would need to be at the Daytona 500?"[4]
