The Golden Weapon is the second pilot episode of the series, LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.

Plot

While Kai was brushing his teeth, three mysterious ninja began to attack him. After a short battle, he was thrown onto the training course, Master Wu soon entered the course and revealed that they were his students. He performed Spinjitzu, giving them each differently colored Ninja suits to represent their elements: Cole, the Black Ninja of Earth, who has a fear of dragons; Jay, the Blue Ninja of Lightning, a bragging inventor; Zane, the White Ninja of Ice, who doesn't have a sense of humor; and Kai, the Red Ninja of Fire. Jay became interested in the mission when he learned about Nya, though he was warned by Kai to back off.

The next morning, they traveled to the Caves of Despair to find the Scythe of Quakes, pulling a horse carriage with Wu inside of it. Along the way, Kai questioned how the others were found by Master Wu. Cole stated that he was testing his strength by rock-climbing up a mountain, Jay says he was in Ninjago City testing homemade wings and Zane says he was testing himself by breathing underwater at an ice-cold temperature; in all those scenarios, Master Wu was there, drinking tea.

Arriving at the Caves, Master Wu warned the Ninja not to use the Scythe upon retrieval, fearing they would not be able to handle its power. After stealing back the map that contained the locations of the Golden Weapons, they entered the cave and found the Scythe. Upon leaving, however, they were ambushed by Samukai and his Skeleton army. While fighting the Skulkin, Jay mentioned that fighting them felt like the training course back at the Monastery, and in going through the motions, Jay unlocked his Spinjitzu. Not long after, the other three Ninja unlocked theirs as well.

The Ninja defeated the Skulkins easily, but were soon faced with the Guardian of the Scythe, the Earth Dragon. As they were unable to defeat it themselves, Kai used the Scythe, despite the warnings of his teammates and defeated the Earth Dragon; the Ninja barely managed to escape. Outside, Master Wu was sorely disappointed in Kai, and scolded him for putting the others in danger.

In the Underworld, Samukai informed Garmadon that he had failed: The Ninja had unlocked Spinjitzu and the Scythe was now in his brother's possession. Garmadon takes this news lightly.
