This article is about a subject that is canon to the storyline of Warner Bros' The LEGO Movie franchise.

“The fate of Ninjago. . . is in your hands. Are you ready?”
— Master Wu

Master Wu is the mentor and master of the six Ninja (Lloyd, Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, and Nya). He is Lord Garmadon's younger brother, Koko's ex-brother-in-law, and Lloyd's paternal uncle.


The LEGO Ninjago Movie


Wu is a wise old man with a long white beard. He wears a white robe, and a conical hat.

Official Description

This wise, all-knowing mentor promises to teach his students to become ninja masters but first they must find their inner peace … or is that piece? He wants them to rely less on their mechs and more on themselves and each other. Wu is Lord Garmadon’s brother, and uncle to Lloyd. He carries a staff he can play like a flute, and a hat that doubles as a floatation device. Years of meditation have not softened this warrior’s edges – or his tongue – and though his students might think he’s “way old,” Wu is still full of surprises.[1]

Weapons and Abilities

Wu is the Master of Creation, and thus possesses the ability to use the elements of his students, barring Lloyd: Fire, Earth, Ice, Lightning, and Water. Likewise, he is highly proficient in the martial arts, most notably Spinjitzu which is golden.

Master Wu wields a staff as his main weapon that can also be played as a flute.
