|Zane||Zane (The LEGO Ninjago Movie)|
|“In case something goes wrong, this is the last recording of Zane, Master of Ice. Son of Dr. Julien. Student of Master Wu. I was built to protect those who cannot protect themselves. I have tried to fulfill this purpose. Goodbye to my friends . . . and . . . to P.I.X.A.L., I love you.”|
|— Zane in "Corruption"|
Zane is the current Elemental Master and Ninja of Ice, as well as the first Nindroid. Zane was recruited by Master Wu, and learned Spinjitzu and discovered his other teammates, with whom he embarked on many adventures; battling the likes of the Serpentine and the Stone Army. During this time, Zane was reunited with his inventor/father figure, Dr. Julien, but sometime after The Final Battle and "The Surge", he passed away once again.
After Lloyd won the Final Battle, Pythor aided the Overlord in becoming the Golden Master and commanding an army Nindroids that were made from Zane's blueprints. During this time, Zane grew closer to another droid, P.I.X.A.L. and battled a Nindroid named Cryptor. The Ninja clashed with the Nindroids until Zane sacrificed himself to destroy the Golden Master.
After building himself a new body, Zane was captured and sent to a mysterious island. The Ninja eventually found Zane in his new titanium body, (with Cole being the first) and rescued him. They then allied with the Elemental Masters to defeat Chen's army. With Zane back in the action, the Ninja went on to battle Morro and an army of ghosts. After Nya destroyed the Cursed Realm, the Ninja fought Nadakhan, who rebuilt his home realm in Ninjago, though this was undone by Jay's final wish. On the Day of the Departed, Cole accidentally revived Cryptor, who Zane fought and destroyed once more. When the Time Twins and Vermillion Warriors fought the Ninja, Zane helped the Ninja defeat their adversaries, but lost contact with P.I.X.A.L. in the chaos.
Zane later helped the Ninja battle the Sons of Garmadon and started a rivalry with the elusive Nindroid, Mr. E. During the conflict, Zane discovered that P.I.X.A.L. is the new Samurai X. Together, they attempt to stop the resurrection of Lord Garmadon but ultimately fail to do so. After Garmadon conquers Ninjago, Zane ends up marooned in the Realm of Oni and Dragons with the original Ninja and a growing Wu. They are also forced to deal with the threat of the Dragon Hunters as he, Jay, and Kai are captured and exploited for their Elemental Powers. The trio escapes with Cole and Wu, and he helps the aging Wu regain his confidence and memories. Eventually, Wu claims the Dragon Armor and the team returns to Ninjago, where Zane reunites with his 2 other friends in an invaded Ninjago City and defeats Garmadon's Colossus, restoring peace to Ninjago.
Several months later, Zane began having dreams foreshadowing an invasion of Pyro Vipers and Blizzard Samurai. The Ninja accidentally released Aspheera and the Pyro Vipers shortly afterward. Zane helped the Ninja fight the Pyro Vipers siege at the Monastery where he used Forbidden Spinjitzu to defeat Aspheera, only to be banished to the distant past of the Never-Realm alongside the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. He was stranded in the unfamiliar realm, where he fell under the sway of the manipulative Vex, after having his memories erased by him. Due to Vex's manipulation, Zane overthrew Grimfax's throne and became the Ice Emperor, with Vex as his right-hand man, Grimfax joining them, and the Scroll corrupting his ice powers. Due to Zane being sent around 60 years into the past, he and his Blizzard Samurai ruled over the Never-Realm for long decades. His identity would finally be uncovered by Lloyd when the Ninja arrived to rescue him, and Zane was able to regain his memories and return the Never-Realm to normal. After the Never-Realm was restored to its original state, Zane returned to Ninjago with his friends.
When citizens started vanishing in large numbers and entering Prime Empire, Zane stayed behind to prevent his memory and code from being overwritten. While in Ninjago, he began a search for Milton Dyer and eventually helped discover the secret behind Prime Empire and Unagami. Zane was used as a power source by the Mechanic to fuel the Manifestation Gate. Zane eventually escaped and fought off Unagami's invasion. Zane and P.I.X.A.L. reunited with the rest of the Ninja after Jay and Dyer successfully convinced Unagami to release the formerly trapped gamers and Ninja.
Zane later traveled to the Kingdom of Shintaro on top of Shintaro. When he discovers Cole was captured by the evil Skull Sorcerer, he travels underground and helps save him. Zane and Kai later get captured by the Geckles and tames a creature known as a Mino. Zane and Kai try to unite the Geckles and the Munce but end up being captured along with Jay, Nya, Lloyd, and Kai. The Skull Sorcerer sentences them to death, but they are saved by Plundar, a member of the Upply, under Cole's command. Zane helps the other Ninja fight against the Awakened Warriors and they eventually succeed. Zane, Wu, and the other Ninja leave Shintaro, but prepare to go on another adventure.

- Main article: Zane/History
Usually seen in white clothing, Zane's Titanium form has silver hair in a tall flat-top/crew cut hairstyle with no sideburns, and sharp eyebrows. He has glowing blue eyes and is usually seen with straight-faced expression, reflective of his robotic nature. His cloaked form has white hair, the normal yellow skin of a LEGO character, and bright blue eyes. He has not used his cloaked form since March of the Oni, so he either removed it from his database or forgot he had this function.
While as the Ice Emperor, Zane's metallic skin is mostly ice blue, with a pale face-plate. This change was due to his prolonged usage of the staff containing the Forbidden Scroll that was frozen to his hand. His eyebrows were covered in frost, and he wore white samurai armor covered in ice. After regaining his memories, he discards the mask and armor, returning him to his previous appearance.
In "Ninjago Confidential," Zane wears a grey fedora and a light grey trench coat over his gi, dressed as a detective.
Having been rebuilt with titanium, Zane's skin is a shining metallic substance with lines running through his jawline and cheeks. He had a scratch on the right of his forehead, though it is gone from Tales from the Monastery of Spinjitzu onward. His eyebrows and the lines on his face somewhat changed for Tales from the Monastery, resembling his minifigure face print more (though he still lacked his minifigure's zigzagged eyebrow edges), but as of Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu, his eyebrows reverted to their previous design and the lines on his face changed once again. Using some kind of cloak feature, he often switches into a more human-like form, with white hair, usually while on active Ninja duty.
Prior to Sons of Garmadon, he had a flat-top hairstyle with sideburns and no forehead scratch, as well as a light blue visor that appeared over his eyes when he wore his mask (and his parka hood in "Peak-a-Boo"). His skin became less reflective starting with The Hands of Time, possibly indicating he has worn over time. However, as of Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu, his skin is more reflective again, indicating this may have also been due to the animation change in The Hands of Time. Before being destroyed in his encounter with the Golden Master at the end of Rebooted, he had blonde hair, normal LEGO human skin, and black eyes. At various points, half of his face would come off, revealing a more robotic look underneath. In "Darkness Shall Rise," his "skin" was portrayed as a cloth-like material, but in Rebooted, it appeared as a hard shell.
He had a control panel in his chest which he could open up, containing switches for vision, audio, voice, power, memory, and humor—he also had a set of switches in his arm. In Season 3 ("The Art of the Silent Fist"), his power source is found in his chest. Between seasons 2 and 3 his interior was upgraded. It appears differently from its original design, with his power source visible and located where his heart would be. The updated design was continued over to his titanium form, albeit now two-dimensional, and the power source design also appeared on his back in his first titanium design. In Season 8 ("Dead Man's Squall"), a computer scan of his body shows him having lungs.

From the perspective of the realm of Ninjago, Zane was created by Dr. Julien over 40 years ago, and thus, is by far the oldest of his fellow Ninja by around 30 years. With the addition of around 60 years during his time in the Never-Realm's past, he is much, much older than his friends, being around a century old already. Due to his robotic nature, he does not physically age, and looks good and new however old he is. He is designed to have the appearance of a young man in his late teens.
Possible Estimations: At the time of Skybound, his new Titanium body was said to be at most 2 years old. As of the Sons of Garmadon's year time-skip, it was maybe around 3 years at most. With his additional time in the Never-Realm, his body has aged even further, due to being sent into the past and living out several decades until Vex unintentionally regained his memories and returned to Ninjago in the present day. As a result of the decades in the Never-Realm, Zane is over 100 years chronologically, his old body was around 40, and his new titanium body is around 60.
- Main article: Zane (Relationships)
When he is introduced, Zane is undoubtedly the most serious and reserved of the Ninja, as he had no sense of humor and didn't understand the way his fellow Ninja socialize. He has little understanding of humor or even basic social conventions (as seen when he walked into the bathroom, despite Cole being on the toilet). It's inferred from the Pilot Episodes that Jay was teaching/informing Zane about humor. He also has a strong bond with Master Wu, being the most polite and respectful towards him and finding a sort of paternal presence in him; the two share moments of quiet while the other Ninja goof off in a way he can't connect with, or when the Ninja are with family and he has none. The other Ninja are occasionally wary of his strange habits, but they quickly learn to accept him for it, even relying on it, like with the robotic Falcon in Season 1.
Initially, Zane was melancholy over his inability to remember his parentage or where he came from. He eventually accepted the Ninja as his family and that their home was his home, but he never truly gave up on finding details of his past. Upon learning his origins, he was briefly struck by shock and depression, only to overcome his feelings and accept his robotic nature when he restored his memories. When he eventually reunited with his father/creator, Dr. Julien, in Season 2, he readily accepted him as his father figure.
Zane is quick to form strong attachments, the most attached to the idea of his fellow Ninja as his "brothers" and finding a deep kinship with the Falcon and companionship with P.I.X.A.L. minutes after meeting them. He has been known to take heavy risks on impulse for the people he loves, even if, in the case of P.I.X.A.L., there is no evidence he should trust them yet. On many matters, Zane's unusualness and people's tendency to ridicule him are a result of his tendency to care deeply in a way others wouldn't—a food fight and a mockery of his pink apron drove him to run off, meeting a fellow android had him falling for her hard and refusing, even before he knew her, to reconcile with her being evil or to leave her behind as an enemy. Zane is often inclined to speak more honestly about emotions that others would tend to mask, like grief or confusion.
After rebuilding himself as the Titanium Ninja, Zane has become even more accepting of his own robotic traits. He considers himself in some ways a new person—which allowed him to unlock his Elemental Dragon. After this change, Zane is more willing to joke at others' expense, cockier, and his sense of humor has been known to be bitingly sarcastic, though his core values and programming remain intact. However, since the beginning he has struggled to understand figures of speech, relying on his friends to explain every so often. Sometimes, he will still interpret the phrases incorrectly.
Zane is a very intelligent Nindroid, with a vast array of knowledge at his disposal, a gift for cooking, and a knack for statistics. It can be inferred from the Season 8 and the Tales from the Monastery of Spinjitzu that Zane continues to upgrade parts of himself. His companion P.I.X.A.L. was a part of his artificial intelligence from Seasons 4 to 7, in which he had her company everywhere he goes. However, he ended up being too dependent on her for analysis. His pattern of speech also displays his intelligence. He is formal and has a larger vocabulary than the others.
Zane learns more quickly than the other Ninja, as shown to be the first to find his True Potential, getting the only compliment from Cole's father on his dancing, and learning to use the chain gun easily in the Realm of Oni and Dragons. It is also shown in Season 1 and 2 that he has the most endurance and can breathe underwater and in space, which makes sense for a robot.
Being stranded in the Never-Realm caused Zane to become despondent, as he had no way to escape and was alone. During his message in the Titan Mech, he identifies himself as Dr. Julien's son, voiced his happiness in his time with his friends who he saw as family. He also voiced his love for his robotic companion P.I.X.A.L., should he not return to Ninjago.
His values comes from the phrase, "You were built to protect those who cannot protect themselves," which was first stated by Dr. Julien. He has stayed true to this in a variety of situations, like against the Digital Overlord, and on Chen's Island. He is also typically very supportive of his friends. It was this phrase that allowed him to regain his memories after he became the Ice Emperor.
Weapons and Abilities
Zane's affinity for Ice allows him to freeze objects to varying degrees and perform a chilly Spinjitzu attack. He generally prefers Shurikens in battle, especially the Shurikens of Ice. He has also wielded a katana, a spear, and a flail at times, and eventually gains an Elemental Blade that channels his Ice powers. Zane also gets access to the Titanium Dragon, an ability that can only be conquered when he faces his fears and doubts.
As a Nindroid, Zane has increased stamina and durability compared to his organic comrades. He can store data and calculate courses of action through a panel on his wrist. He has a strong bond with the Falcon, and eventually learned how to see through its eyes for scouting areas or compensating for when his own eyes are unusable. He can survive without oxygen, allowing him to be in outer space without a space suit. Zane was powerful but was weaker in comparison to the stronger new Nindroids like Cryptor. Zane was often called an "out dated relic" because he is relatively older than them. However, his new upgraded body is stronger and allows him to overpower the Nindroids, something he made clear in a brawl with one. This was seen again when he fought against the undead Cryptor, easily holding his own. He has a new ability that he gains with his new upgraded body in between the seventh and eighth seasons, using a holographic cloak to simulate a human form and disguise himself as others. See Nindroids (ninja faction) § Abilities for his numerous other Nindroid abilities.
Because of his training with Wu, Zane is a skilled fighter and is able to take on multiple opponents with his Spinjitzu. Zane is also skilled in Airjitzu. Zane appears to have a premonition ability, as he has visions that later come true. The best examples are when he saw the Titanium Dragon, Aspheera, Boreal, and future glimpses of himself as the Ice Emperor in his dreams. Along with his fighting skills, Zane is very intelligent and skilled in the art of tactics. This is best seen as when he was confronted by Nadakhan, he deduced the latter met Jay and was careful in his wishes until the Djinn found a loophole. Nadakhan voiced that Zane put up a better challenge than most of the Ninja. When faced with Cryptor, he feigned surrender and his act allowed his clone to fall victim to his own weapon. Zane's abilities are further enhanced with the staff holding one of the Scrolls of Forbidden Spinjitzu. With the staff, he was able to freeze Aspheera in a large block of ice. He also used it to corrupt or create Blizzard Samurai and a dragon called Boreal. For decades, he used the staff to subjugate the entire Never-Realm into an eternal winter. Using its power, he was able to defeat an Ice bird. He has great mastery with the weapon, as he stopped midway in freezing Grimfax. He easily blasted Lloyd into an unconscious state with no effort whatsoever. In their final battle, Zane dominated Lloyd and froze him halfway.
Zane has owned a variety of different vehicles in his Ninja history.
- Ice Dragon
- Titanium Dragon
- Zane's bike
- Titanium Ninja Tumbler
- Ice Mech
- According to show creator Tommy Andreasen, Zane's surname may be "Julien" like his father, but it is unconfirmed.
- The name of Zane's actor in the non-canon blooper reel is "Zane Roberts."
- Zane has a sixth sense, which has manifested in clairvoyance and an uncanny ability to sense what others cannot. He also was able to communicate with the Falcon and detect its presence, though this may be related to their similar origins.
- His sixth sense could be attributed to his robotic nature.
- He was the first ninja to reach his True Potential.
- Conversely, he was the only NRG ninja released in a set at a later date than the rest of the ninja.
- He is also the only one of original four ninja who did not unlock his True Potential during the ninja's quest for the Fangblades.
- He was the first ninja to unlock his True Potential due to realizing himself as a Nindroid and knowing who he is.
- Zane's greatest fear is losing his humanity. He also appears to have a fear of living food.
- After his supposed "death", Zane came back as the Titanium Ninja. This is how Cyrus Borg referred to him as at his funeral, and how he was represented in the memorial statue made by the inventor.
- At Zane's funeral, Cyrus had said that "he was a perfect balance between [humans] and technology".
- After it was revealed in Season 4 that Elemental Powers are passed down through generations, it was unknown how Zane inherited his powers due to his robotic origins. Eventually, Season 8 gave an explanation. It was told through a flashback in "Snake Jaguar" that the previous Master of Ice stayed at Dr. Julien's for a while, and took a great interest in Zane. When the Master of Ice left, Zane acted "stranger than usual", implying that the Master of Ice gave his powers to Zane.
- Dan and Kevin Hageman have revealed that this explanation is borrowed from a fan's idea.
- This may be the reason why Zane has such a cool, calm, and collected personality. This also indicates that Zane may have had a somewhat different personality before the event occurred, though it's currently unknown what kind of personality Zane had before he met the previous Master of Ice.
- This makes Zane the only one of the six ninja to be given their power by someone else, as all of the other ninja inherited their Elemental Powers.
- Zane showed a loss of memory in "Versus" and stated in "The Day of the Dragon" that he did not retain all his memories from his original body, though it's unknown if this is still the case.
- There is another rusted, brown version of him called Echo Zane, first appearing in "The Last Resort". He was created by Dr. Julien to replace Zane after he was left in the Lighthouse Prison. Echo Zane aided Nya and Jay in defending Dr. Julien's former home tower from Nadakhan. He is rusty and falls apart easily.
- Echo Zane was originally going to be the true identity of Mr. E.
- Since Jay's wish in "The Way Back" brought the ninja back in time to before Zane met Echo Zane, he has presumably no memory of meeting him or knowledge of his existence.
- In Ninjago: Decoded, Nya downloaded the events of Skybound onto Zane's memory drive, so it is possible that he remembers the events of Skybound.
- Zane is the first ninja to use Spinjitzu after he learned Airjitzu (in "Grave Danger").
- Zane and the other original ninja could previously only harness their elemental powers by being dependent on Lloyd. This is due to Lloyd splitting his Golden Power between them to restore their powers.
- However, as of Season 8, this connection has most likely faded away, as confirmed by Tommy Andreasen in an interview with Zane's voice actor Brent Miller.
- After becoming the Titanium Ninja, Zane is shown to have a few strengths; however, he also has many weaknesses. These include problems with his voice if getting hit too hard on the head, getting hacked, getting knocked unconscious easily, and being able to be shocked due to titanium being a metal, which is a conductor of electricity.
- Zane is somehow capable of keeping his shurikens hidden in him.
- Zane went undercover as "Snake Jaguar" in Season 8 to infiltrate the Sons of Garmadon.
- P.I.X.A.L. officially left his head in Season 7 after being rebooted, and she has rejoined the team as Samurai X.
- Zane's name changed in early concepts of the series. Some of these names were was Ren, Boon, and Whitman.
- Additionally, in preliminary concepts of Zane, he was supposed to be a "rad snowboarder" type of character. Voice actor Brent Miller was told to do a chill and laid back voice for him. His performance, in the end, inspired the Hageman Brothers to then change his character to a droid to fit his monotonous voice and straight-cut military hair.
- Zane started to use a cloak feature to make himself look like a human again in Sons of Garmadon. However, he stopped using it for this purpose after March of the Oni. The reason for this is unknown.
- The idea for his cloaking feature was inspired by Brent Miller saying he preferred his voice with no robotic effect, so the show creators came up with the idea to have them both.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, Zane typically uses his robotic form in private settings and saves his human form when he is on missions.
- However, he used his cloaking feature to disguise himself as Clutch Powers in Season 11.
- The only time Zane is seen with his "human" face and a Legacy/SOTFS mask at the same time is in one of the gifs released alongside Season 10.
- In the Season 7 set 70624 Vermillion Invader, as well as three promotional sets, Zane has a scratch on his head despite the scratch not appearing in the show until Season 8. Strangely, his Minifigure in Season 8 and onward does not use this head print and instead uses a new, less accurate print to represent his titanium face design.
- This new head print appeared in Tales from the Monastery of Spinjitzu and March of the Oni, with his face being redesigned to be more accurate to the Minifigure, though still he did not have his minifigure's zigzagged eyebrow edges. His face was changed again in Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu, with his original eyebrows returning and the lines through his jawline and cheeks changing a bit. See the Appearance section for more details.
- He gained new abilities between seasons 7 and 8.
- He is the second ninja to be an antagonist, the first being Lloyd in Season 1: Rise of the Snakes, prior to being a ninja, and Season 5: Possession, through Morro's possession.
- This makes Zane the third student of Wu to be an antagonist, the first being Morro, and the second being Lloyd.
- Zane was also the first ninja to be manipulated into becoming an antagonist.
- Before it was revealed that the Ice Emperor was Zane, there were subtle hints to his true identity.
- The bottom linings of the former Ice Emperor's eyebrows are identical to Zane's eyebrows in sets, as of Season 8. His hands are blue and his arms are white, which is also identical to Zane's, as seen in "The Never-Realm." He also has glowing eyes like Zane.
- During Vex's meeting with the Formlings, he stated that he discovered the power of Ice was strong. It was worth noting that Zane has power over Ice.
- The scepter was the naginata for the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu, which was still in Zane's possession.
- When Vex tells him about the green-outfitted stranger, he pauses for a moment and appears perplexed, almost as if he knew the stranger was actually Lloyd, but just doesn't treat him as a friend.
- Aspheera banished Zane into the past of the Never-Realm, where he stayed for around 60 years as the Ice Emperor before he was brought back to normal and taken back to Ninjago. Combined with his age before being sent back, this would technically make Zane around 100 years old.
- In the sets, his Ice Emperor armor and helmet are white, while in the show his armor and helmet are gray.
- His Ice Emperor mask in the show closely resembles General Kozu's mask, but Zane's mask is shorter and is printed on to his transparent blue head in the sets.
- Zane is the only ninja who has changed his hair color three times. His hair was blonde from the pilot to the end of Season 3. It changed to silver to match his new titanium form in Season 4. In Season 8, his cloaked appearance has white hair.
- His hair has also been delayed or unreleased in the sets three times, more than any of the other ninja. First, none of the original ninja came with their hair in the sets until Rebooted; later, he was titanium starting in Season 4 but wasn't released with his titanium hair until the Day of the Departed wave; and finally, his post-movie titanium hair wasn't feature in the sets until 2021.
- According to the Visual Dictionary New Edition, when he arrived in the Never-Realm, he made the realm's winter harsher, colder, and eternal.
- He is known to have been responsible for at least one genocide, as the Blizzard Samurai killed all of the Yeti aside from Krag.
- His sacrifice in "The Titanium Ninja" killed all the evil Nindroids and the Overlord.
- Zane was thought to be dead thrice, those episodes being "The Titanium Ninja," "Big Trouble, Little Ninjago," and "Vengeance is Mine!"
- He is the third character overall to announce the title card at the beginning of an episode, with him reading the Ninjago: Decoded title cards.
- He is also the third villain of Season 11 to announce the title card at the beginning of an episode, with him announcing "Once and for All" as the Ice Emperor.
- Despite rejoining the cast in Season 4: The Tournament of Elements, the intro doesn't get updated and still has his poster with a dagger.
- He and Kai are currently the only ninja to have their Golden Techno Robe variant as a physical Minifigure. Zane's was released in the 40374 Golden Zane Minifigure Accessory Set.
- As the Ice Emperor:
- He is the sixth villain to knows Spinjitzu. The other five being Garmadon, the Overlord, Wu, Doubloon, and Aspheera.
- He is the fourth villain to know Airjitzu, the first three being Morro, Cryptor, and Master Yang.
- He is the third villain to have a dragon, the first two being the Overlord with the Nindroid MechDragon and Morro with the Morro Dragon.
- He is fourth major villain to have a hidden identity, the first three being Pythor (in Rebooted), Krux, and Harumi.
- Zane has been corrupted twice, once by Dark Matter and once by the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu (manipulated by Vex).
- Zane does not have an avatar.
- His original 2015 LEGO.com description referred to him as "Zane (Frosty)", likely referencing when Cole used the nickname "Frosty" for him in "Home."
- Zane is damaged, out of commission, or caused to malfunction nearly every season.
- In Season 1, he was damaged by the Great Devourer in "Day of the Great Devourer", tearing off half of his "human" face covering.
- In Season 3, he began to be dismantled by the Nindroids in "The Art of the Silent Fist" and his body was later destroyed when he sacrificed himself to defeat the Golden Master in "The Titanium Ninja".
- In Season 4, he was imprisoned by Chen for the first few episodes and did not have his powers for the majority of the season.
- In Season 5, his voice module was damaged in "Stiix and Stones", causing him to speak in different various ways for a few episodes.
- In Season 6, he had P.I.X.A.L. deleted from his hard drive before being trapped in the Djinn Blade for a number of episodes.
- In Season 7, he was damaged in "The Hatching" which put him out of commission for a bit and messed up his speech again, and when he was back to normal, P.I.X.A.L. was gone once again.
- In Season 8, he was nearly killed by Mr. E in "Dead Man's Squall".
- In Season 11, he was banished to the Never-Realm by Aspheera and spent the second half of the season as the Ice Emperor.
- In Season 12, he was unable to go into Prime Empire with the rest of the ninja due to the complexity of the game's code.
