- “Vengestone's only practical purpose is to negate Elemental Power.”
- “Exactly. Anyone who's collecting Vengestone has to be up to no good!”
|— Wu and Cole, "Farewell the Sea"|
Prior to the series
At some point in time, Vengestone came into existence, having the ability to cancel out the powers of an Elemental Master, as well as ghosts. It seems to originate from the Realm of Oni and Dragons as the Dragon Hunters use it to hunt the dragons.
When the Serpentine trapped Master Wu, the ninja, and Nya inside a cage made of Vengestone, Kai suggested they escape using their elemental powers, but Wu informed him that it's no use, since the rock wards off their elemental powers.
After loading up the defeated Elemental Masters, minus Lloyd, Chen threw them in a cage made of Vengestone to prevent their escape.
After their capture, each Elemental Masters were placed in chains made of Vengestone as Chen used his Staff of Elements to steal their powers. Later on, after easily defeating Lloyd, Chen had the Green Ninja placed in Vengestone chains before stealing his elemental power.
Very soon, Kai stole Chen's staff and destroyed the chains, binding Lloyd with the powers of the staff.
Ronin attempted to trap the ninja in a net made of Vengestone but fails.
While pursuing Jay on the roller coaster, Ronin attempted to capture him by using a Vengestone net but missed.
After Lloyd and Cole were both trapped with a Vengestone ball and chain as well, Cole used his first wish from Nadakhan to make Vengestone strengthen their powers instead of canceling them. This worked, but the Vengestone restraints caused their powers to grow too much and become uncontrollable. Lloyd countered this by breaking their chains, freeing them.
Cole, captured by the Sons of Garmadon, was placed in a cage made of Vengestone within the Sons of Garmadon's headquarters. He attempted to break through the cage with his Earth Punch, but he was unable to.
The shackles the Dragon Hunters use on the ninja seem to be Vengestone and since the ninja are thought to be Oni, it can be assumed that Vengestone works on Oni as well.
The Dragon Hunters attempted to use Vengestone chains to capture Cole, Jay, and Kai but ultimately failed. However, Heavy Metal was able to capture the ninja using the chains.
Geckles and Munce are shown mining Vengestone deep within the Dungeons of Shintaro.
The Ninja are seen mining and realise that they are mining Vengestone, leading them to understand why their powers aren't working. Geckles and Munce can also be seen mining for it.
Zane's Mino was shown wearing armor made of Vengestone.
Miss Demeanor runs an operation smuggling Vengestone with several Henchmen. She escaped the Ninja after losing some Vengestone. Master Wu and the Ninja were confused about why Miss Demeanor would smuggle Vengestone because Vengestone doesn't have many practical uses.
Cole, Lloyd, Nya, and Zane were trapped in a Vengestone cage.
The ninja fought in the Mines of Shintaro which contained Vengestone.
- Power negation - It stops the powers of those who are chained to it. If he or she is freed, they can use their elemental powers again even ghost or magical powers.
- Power augmentation (in an alternate timeline) - Cole made a wish for it to upgrade the Elemental Masters' powers and it made them stronger or more enhanced, but as a side effect, it made their powers uncontrollable. This ability was erased due to Jay's final wish.
Vengestone looks like regular stone, except it has marks around it with a yellow or orange glow. From Season 1: Rise of the Snakes to Season 7: The Hands of Time, Vengestone did not have yellow glows around it, making it harder to recognize. From Season 8: Sons of Garmadon to Season 10: March of the Oni the glows were orange and since Season 12: Prime Empire, the markings are finally yellow.
- It was revealed in Hunted set descriptions that the Dragon Hunters utilized Vengestone weaponry to combat the dragons, thus allowing them to exploit their Elemental Powers for their own purposes.
- Interestingly, Vengestone does not keep dragons from using their powers. Its only effect on the dragons seem to be that it is strong enough to keep them from escaping, or it may weaken their powers.
- Shintaro Mountain contains a mine that bears Vengestone.
- Vengestone is similar and seems inspired from Seastone in One Piece, since Seastone can nullify Devil's fruit powers, just like Elemental Powers with Vengestone. Both appear to be rare.
- Although seeing that most of the villains the ninja have fought use Vengestone, it seems pretty common in Ninjago instead of rare.
- It is one of the few materials available in multiple realms.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, Vengestone is "a[n] unhealthy by-product of some cataclysmic event."
- Despite the fact that in all other seasons Vengestone is called in the Czech dubbing in the same way as in the original, only in the Czech language, in Season 6 and 7 it is called the "antielemental stone."
- Although Vengestone seems common enough (considering the amount of villains who are in possession of it on such short notice), in "The Skull Sorcerer," King Vangelis claims that he's been selling Vengestone from the mines to a mysterious buyer, thus making the availability of the substance quite ambiguous.
- In 71719 Zane's Mino Creature, Vengestone armor on Zane's Mino is transparent blue instead of transparent orange.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, Vengestone would "most likely not" block an Oni's power.
