“There's a secret message engraved on it. All these years, I had no idea.”
Wu to Jay in "Ghost Story"

The Staff of the First Spinjitzu Master was a staff that belonged to the First Spinjitzu Master. Shortly before his death, he engraved three clues on the staff that was passed to Wu to be sure that it fell in good hands; unfortunately, a Ghost Warrior named Morro received the item and later retrieved the Realm Crystal from the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master.

History

Prior to the series

At some point before his death, the First Spinjitzu Master engraved three symbols onto his staff that gave the location of his tomb, and passed it on to his youngest son, Wu. He hid the other one in his tomb.

Way of the Ninja

Master Wu uses the staff to attack Samukai and save Kai. He later used it to activate the training course in the monastery.

The Titanium Ninja

Wu used his staff to "thread the needle" to get the shrinking pill to the Overlord. However, this plan failed as Pythor ate it instead.

Winds of Change

After possessing Lloyd, Morro goes to Steep Wisdom tea shop looking for Master Wu and the Staff. After a battle between the ninja and Wu, the staff is dropped over some dust, revealing the engraved symbols. Both Wu and Morro are surprised at this, and the struggle continues. Master Wu manages to retrieve the staff, and he, the ninja, and Nya escape on the Destiny's Bounty.

Ghost Story

Morro chases the Destiny's Bounty on his Dragon to get the staff back. He lands on the ship and attacks the ninja. While Jay, Cole, and Nya (as Samurai X) try to fend him off, Wu, Kai, and Zane brought it to their quarters in an attempt to print the symbols on parchment paper. However, despite their efforts, Morro gains the staff and flies it away. Luckily, Wu managed to make an imprint of the message before giving up the staff, which is later deciphered by Misako, who reveals that the first symbol means "Airjitzu."

Later that night, Morro walks into a bar, where he lays out the staff on some chalk, revealing the symbols. He then summons Wrayth, who may have helped him figure out the first symbol.

The Temple on Haunted Hill

Morro reviews the second symbol on the staff, and summons Ghoultar and Bansha to help him decipher it.

Peak-a-Boo

After learning Airjitzu, the ninja draw their attention to the second clue, a sword in some clouds , which is revealed to be the Sword of Sanctuary.

The Crooked Path

The ninja see that the last symbol refers to the First Spinjitzu Master's tomb.

Grave Danger

The ninja, Morro, and his Ghost Warriors go to the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master. After the ninja complete the first challenge, the second challenge appears to be to obtain the First Spinjitzu Master's other staff. They try extremely hard to get it but no matter how hard they try, it is impossible. Then Cole realizes that they have to think about the clue, "A Spinjitzu Master cannot," meaning that since they are all Spinjitzu Masters, they were never meant to get the staff.

The Mask of Deception

The staff was seen when the Sons of Garmadon wanted to steal the Oni Mask of Deception in Borg Tower.

LEGO.com description

Wu’s staff originally belonged to his father, the First Spinjitzu Master. Unknown to Wu, the staff’s engravings were clues to the location of the First Spinjitzu Master’s tomb. Wu had spent many years searching for his father’s final resting place, never knowing he held the clues in his hand.[1]

Appearance

In the show, the Staff of the First Spinjitzu Master resembles an ordinary, wooden bo staff, the main difference being the three, nearly invisible symbols carved into its side. However, in the sets, the Staff has a golden and more ornate appearance, additionally being longer.

Trivia

  • In "Battle Between Brothers," Garmadon breaks Wu's staff by shooting fire at it with the Sword of Fire. He has it later on in the show, though, so his could have been either a different staff, or Wu repaired it.
  • When Master Wu was transformed into Techno Wu, it's unknown if the staff he wielded was the First Spinjitzu Master's staff or just a black metal replacement.
  • The staff disappeared after the events of Possession and Wu is not seen holding it in Skybound. In "Day of the Departed" he started using the staff again, although it's not clear if it's the same. This staff was lost in time and later he started using another in Hunted and March of the Oni. Since Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu, his staff is made of ordinary wood, not bamboo.
