Ninjago Wiki
“Many professionals have dare tried, but it's never been successfully completed.”

The Triple Tiger Sashay is a dancing technique that was passed down to Lou, Cole's father. To perform it, the user is faced with three opponents and jumps onto each one as though using their heads as individual steps. Once landing on the ground again, the user has the option to make a tiger claw with one's hand and growl. Cole was forced to try and perform it when he was only seven years old. When he failed, he let down his quartet and ran away from home.

The only times Cole successfully did the Triple Tiger Sashay was during the Ninjago Talent in the Music Hall and the Terra Technica Dance-Off in a disco-dancing competition in Terra Technica.


The Royal Blacksmiths

Being trained by Lou to become a singer for the talent show, Cole was reminded how he had failed at performing the Triple Tiger Sashay when he was seven.

Later, when the ninja were performing for the show, they were encountered by several Serpentine. Cole unexpectedly, but successfully performed the Triple Tiger Sashay, earning them a perfect score.
