“You've traveled far for the Sword of Sanctuary. A powerful weapon that can foresee your opponent's next attack. It's also the second clue to finding the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master.”
Fenwick to the ninja, "Kingdom Come"

The Sword of Sanctuary is a mystic weapon which was utilized by the ninja and Morro. It was formerly obtained by Morro and wielded by him, as well as Kai, Ronin, and Lloyd, but after the ghost invasion, the Sword of Sanctuary was put in Hiroshi's Labyrinth Stronghold then later Borg Tower vaults. It is also the second clue to the location of the First Spinjitzu Master's final resting place.


Kingdom Come

Morro uses the sword to win in an encounter with the ninja. When Kai confronts him, Lloyd fights Morro's possession and briefly emerges, giving his friend the sword. Before Morro recovers and attacks Kai, the latter uses the sword to see Morro's next move and escapes with the sword.

The Crooked Path

The sword is now in the hands of the ninja, and they proceed to search for the location of the tomb. Meanwhile, Ronin receives a message from the Ghost Warriors, in which they tell him to steal the sword in exchange for his soul being freed of debt. While the ninja are busy in the tea shop, Ronin attempts to steal the sword from them, only to realize Nya had discovered his motives and was guarding it. After a brief fight, while Nya sees a future of Ronin kissing her and gets distracted, the bandit outsmarts Nya and escapes with the sword. He then gives it to Morro, who uses it to stab the Scroll of Airjitzu, while revealing the precise location of the First Spinjitzu Master's tomb.

Grave Danger

Morro enters the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master and used the sword to pass the first two tests. In the last test, he wields the sword in battle with the ninja, unintentionally trapping himself in a barrier of ice stalagmites.

After catching up with his rivals, Morro would exit Lloyd's body and threaten to kill Lloyd with the sword if they don't give up the Realm Crystal. After being tricked, they would have another fight, with Morro using the sword.

Curseworld, Part I

Morro fights Lloyd with the Sword of Sanctuary during the Ghost War. Near the end, Morro tries to finish Lloyd with the sword, but Ronin arrives in his ship and saves Lloyd by pouring his savings of gold coins on Morro, causing him to lose the Sword of Sanctuary.

Curseworld, Part II

In the final battle between the ninja and the ghosts, Ronin uses the Sword of Sanctuary to eliminate some of The Preeminent's tentacles, while the ninja round up the people of Stiix in a boat. Morro then arrives and battles Ronin. After the fight Ronin loses the sword, but when Morro goes to retrieve it, Lloyd attacks and they begin to cross realms.

In the end, Lloyd is brought back safely to Ninjago and then reunited with his friends and family, where he is left with the Sword of Sanctuary. He tells his team that he saw a future event on his sword, telling him that Morro had to return alone, not only so Lloyd could defeat him by giving him a temporary victory, but also teach him the true meaning of being the Green Ninja.

After the ghost invasion, the sword was stored in Hiroshi's Labyrinth along with the Realm Crystal.[1]

Day of the Departed

A replica of the Sword of Sanctuary was later created and wielded by a statue of Morro in the Ninjago Museum of History; Master Yang's magic later transformed it into one of the Departed Blades.

The Fall

It had been moved to the underground vault of Borg Tower along with several other items. Lloyd found it and used it to smash the Realm Crystal and fight off some of the Oni.


As a weapon, the Sword of Sanctuary can be used in combat. It can also be used as a tool to cut through obstacles.

  • Precognition - The sword possesses the power of precognition, which makes its wielder see their opponent's next move before that maneuver is made. This gives its wielder a crucial edge in anticipating an enemy's next maneuver, as happened with Morro, Kai, and Ronin. The sword can also view further into the future and even into another realm, as Lloyd sees in its blade that the key to defeating Morro was to allow him the victory of returning to Ninjago alone. As effective as it is in combat, however, The Sword does have one drawback; it cannot reveal an opponent's true motives. Kai discovers and utilizes this weakness successfully by indirectly wielding his Aeroblade at Morro—which he sees and thus ducks—while actually targeting his ship's mast, crippling Morro's means of escape and allowing Kai to catch up to him. It also implies that the sword can defeat Ghost Warriors when they come in contact, simular how Aeroblades defeat a ghost, as Cole often dodges it when he was fighting Morro after he was turned into a ghost.
  • Location of the First Spinjitzu Master Tomb - When united with one of the Scrolls of Airjitzu, it reveals the location of the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master. descriptions

Possession (2017 Museum gallery)

Found in a tower in the Cloud Kingdom realm, the Sword of Sanctuary is a potentially devastating weapon in combat. The wielder can see his opponent’s next move reflected in the surface of the blade ahead of time, allowing him to counter it. The ninja use the Sword to help them navigate through the traps and dangers that surround the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master.[2]

Day of the Departed

The Sword of Sanctuary is an incredibly powerful weapon, largely because it is possible to see an opponent’s next move in the reflection of the blade. Of course, you can also see other important things in the reflection, like whether your hair is a mess or you have spinach in your teeth. But Master Wu probably wouldn’t like you using it that way.[3]



  • The Omega appears to be the only character in the series that the Sword of Sanctuary doesn't work on.
  • In the Korean-translated shows, its name translates as "The Holy Sword."
  • The sword's power is similar to that of the Time Ninja, who lives one second before everyone else and is therefore able to evade attacks.
