“The fate of Ninjago . . . is in your hands. Are you ready?”
— Master Wu to the Secret Ninja Force

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 martial arts, most notably Spinjitzu which is golden.

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