You don't know what you're dealing with, do you? The Vermillion warriors are the pure first generation progeny of the Great Devourer.”

The Vermillion, often referred to as the Vermillion warriors, are the pure first-generation progeny of the Great Devourer, appearing as masses of snakes that can merge into humanoid- snakelike forms. With armor forged by Ray and Maya and the leadership of Krux and Acronix, the Vermillion's main agenda is to consume everything in their path, much like their progenitor.

Following the Battle for All of Time, Krux had been breeding them in the Vermillion Swamps, so he could oversee their invasion in forty years while waiting for Acronix to return.

The Vermillion commanders Machia, Raggmunk, and Blunck were selected by Krux as the strongest and most cunning of their species. They are capable of controlling the other Vermillion warriors through a hive mind until Acronix and Krux fired the Vermillion commanders and used the helmets of Blunck and Raggmunk to control the Vermillion warriors themselves.

With control of the Vermillion, the twins telepathically smashed the rest of the Vermillion warriors into their component snakes, which were absorbed by the Iron Doom. Under the twins' orders, the Vermillion snakes ultimately gave life to the machine. Eventually, it would become lost in time after Wu ripped out the Reversal Time Blade from the Iron Doom's time apparatus, leaving the Time Twins and their Vermillion hordes stuck in the Temporal vortex.

History

The Hatching

A Vermillion attacked a Borg Store in Ninjago City. It fought Dareth and the ninja.

A Time of Traitors

The Vermillion went to kidnap Ninjago's builders.

Scavengers

The Vermillion stole metal from the city and went to their underground base.

Machia scolded Raggmunk and Blunck for their failed Operation and instructed the warriors to take out the power to buy them more time.

After failing to keep the blackout from continuing, they headed to Mega Monster Amusement Park to take apart its metal.

A Line in the Sand

The Vermillion made it to the amusement park and junkyard, where they started taking all the metal there.

Soon, they headed to the Sea of Sand to collect the Slow-Mo Time Blade, but the ninja escaped with it.

The Attack

After they used the BorgWatch to find the Time Blade's location, the Vermillion attacked the Temple of Airjitzu and were able to get the Blade.

Secrets Discovered

The Vermillion brought in a captured Wu to their base.

Pause and Effect

The Vermillion are on the lookout for the ninja. They are able to outnumber Jay and Cole, but when Lloyd and Zane helped, the Vermillion are defeated.

Out of the Fire and Into the Boiling Sea

The Vermillion go after the ninja.

Lost in Time

Machia prepared the Vermillion to fight the past Elemental Masters. When they were battling, the snakes are destroyed and fused into the Iron Doom. It is assumed they were lost in time along with the Time Twins.

Appearance

Although the Vermillion look vaguely humanoid at first glance, their true forms are red and/or orange snakes; they can combine their bodies to appear humanoid, aided by their armor and the telepathic command of their superiors. Despite being made entirely of snakes, Vermillion warriors can manifest fangs and eyes seemingly independent of their components.

Vermillion apparently reproduce via large "eggs" with a distinctive metallic gray shell and red spots on either end. When shattered, the eggs release several Vermillion snakes that attack anything not allied with their kind, making them effective weapons.

Their appearance is similar to Gorgons from Greek Mythology.

Vehicles

The Vermillion have a number of vehicles, most of which were created by the kidnapped builders with the stolen scrap metal. The vehicles are red and dark gray, with black and dull orange accents. Many have a single tank-like tread as their primary locomotion, as well as large blades on their sides for intimidation and attack on a passerby. The vehicles also have Vermillion snakes permeating their hulls, which act as a power source of sorts to enable their functions.

Trivia

  • The word "vermilion" means "a brilliant red pigment made from mercury sulfide."[1]
  • The species name may be a combination of the words "vermilion", referring to the color, and "million", referencing that they are made of many snakes.
  • The Vermillion were inspired by the character Death Adder from the video game series, Golden Axe.[2][3]
  • The Vermillion were originally going to be green, seeing as they are the offspring of the Great Devourer.[4]
    • They may get their orange and red coloring from their father.[5]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, the Great Devourer was a snake with a mutation, so it's possible some of the Vermillion could carry this mutation as well.[6]
  • Anyone with the helmets of two of the three Vermillion commanders (Machia, Raggmunk, and Blunck) can take control of the Vermillion.
  • Simon Lucas explained in an interview, "we wanted to do snakes in a completely new way", referring to how the Vermillion differ from the other Serpentine and how snakes are recurring villains in Ninjago.[7]
  • According to Tommy Andreasen, the Vermillion existed long before Season 7 because the Devourer was very old.[8]
  • Orange colorations of individual Vermillion warriors appear in the show to match Blunck, Raggmunk, others, despite being absent in the sets.
  • The Vermillion are somewhat similar to the Stone Army in that both have red and dark gray coloring and that both, as enemies of the ninja, are somehow a result of the Great Devourer's existence (the Stone Army was reawakened by the Devourer's venom and the Vermillion are its children).
