Ninjago Wiki
No one has invoked the Trial By Sphinx for decades! Not since the incident with Lord Belgrave

The Sphinx is an ancient artifact located in the Explorers Club.


Prior to Seabound

Decades ago, Lord Belgrave invoked the Trial By Sphinx, and an incident occurred that dissuaded anyone from invoking the trial for years.

Riddle of the Sphinx

Misako tried to get back in the Explorers Club while asking Cecil Putnam to get the Storm Amulet. Misako told Cecil that she can enter by invoking the Trial By Sphinx. Cecil warned them but summoned the Sphinx anyways. The Sphinx asked who will answer the riddle, and Wu asked for the riddle.

The Sphinx stated its riddle: "Give me food, and I will live. Give me water, and I will die. Who am I?" Cole answered "cake," and one of the torches burned out, and the Sphinx declared it incorrect. Wu attempted "discipline," but another torch burned out. Kai answered "fire," and it was declared correct, with the Sphinx disappearing into the floor.
