“Control time, control EVERYTHING!”
Time Twins

Time is a secondary element in Ninjago. It is associated with the colors copper, green, blue, and red. It corresponds with the Time Blades, Temporal Vortex, and Iron Doom. Acronix and Krux thought it to be the most powerful element.

Users' Abilities

  • Chronokinesis - The user is able to manipulate and control time.
    • Chronoportation - Allows the user to travel through the past or the future. It appears to require an immense amount of power, usually requiring the user to channel their element through a conduit of sorts—examples include Lord Garmadon's Mega Weapon and the Time Twins' Iron Doom.
    • Time Reduction - Allows the user to slow down time, reducing the movement speed of the affected object, person, or area. This appears to involve blue temporal energy.
    • Time Bubble: The user can emit and create a powerful energy field speeding up, slowing down or holding the target and nearby objects caught within the bubble. The bubble will be the color corresponding to the effect used.
    • Time Acceleration - Allows the user to speed up time forward. It can be used to accelerate the aging of an opponent or to make the user "teleport" by accelerating their own time for short periods. This appears to involve green temporal energy.
      • Age Acceleration - Nicknamed the Time Punch by Acronix, it allows the user to accelerate someone's age, eventually leading to death. It can only be reversed by using the opposite power on the one affected.
    • Temporal Rewind - Allows the user to rewind time. It can be used to restore youth to themselves or others or to negate a dangerous situation by reversing time until a moment prior to the event, allowing the user to adjust or prepare accordingly. This appears to involve yellow-orange temporal energy.
      • Age Reversal - Allows the user to reverse someone's age to make them younger.
    • Time Stopping - Allows the user to pause time, freezing the target of their power. This appears to involve red temporal energy.
    • Time View - Allows to the user to see what has happened in the past or what will happen in the future.
    • Retrocognition - The user can foresee the past of what they want to see
    • Precognition - As demonstrated by the Spirit Smoke, it allows it's user that have a glimpse into the future and foresee possible outcomes of different situations. Wu would often meditate on the Destiny's Bounty using the Spirit Smoke to foresee outcomes of their battles with the Serpentine and The Great Devourer.




  • It is possible that Time is the strongest element in all of Ninjago (excluding the Elemental Essence Powers, Golden Power, Creation, Darkness, Destruction, and Energy), as it took the whole elemental alliance, including Wu and Garmadon, and the Time Blades to defeat the Time Twins.
  • Chen was able to complete the spell without this element because it did not require the use of Time, like Water and Wind.[1]
  • Time is one of the few elements in the series associated with multiple colors.
  • The effects of Time are also seen in some type of tea such as Tomorrow's tea, which can age people as shown in Child's Play when Lloyd threw the tea at the Grundle, which aged both it and the Ninja.
  • Time is also used toward the end of Season 6, where Jay made his final wish and reversing the events of Skybound. Where the Teapot of Tyrahn wouldn't be found in the first place.
