| "That's not what happened at all!"
This article is about something not canon to either the storyline of the TV show, Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, or the LEGO Movie franchise.
The Time Ninja was once an unnamed thief who stood near the powerful Chrono Crater hoping it would make him immortal. Instead he now lives one second ahead of everyone else. He once fought Master Wu to a standstill, but was banished to the Tower of Tears. Years later, Garmadon blew up the Tower of Tears and commanded him to defeat Master Wu. While finding Master Wu, Wu made a trap in the desert that would take more than one second to escape from. He succeeded to trap the Time Ninja, who hinted he would fight Cardinsto next.
