Top 10 Best Ninjago CharactersNinjago is one of the best shows on T.V.. You have to see this show on Cartoon network. The four ninjas are earth, lightning, fire, and the best ice! The colors are black, blue, red, and also the best white! The sensei is sensei wu and there is a new sensei, sensei garmadon. Nia (Kia's sister) is a samurai and has a giant samurai suit with a samurai cave.
I agree. fire and kai go well together as fire can warm the heart. Kai also risks his life to bring Nya back. Also, in season 1, when he finds out Nya is samuraiX he says" All this time I've been trying to protect you".When Morro returns Kai also treats Lloyd like a little brother and learns to swim whilst saving him
You know, first, Kai wanted to save his sister, but that was all before he had a big career. Now, now since he has everything and is good at everything, then, what is the point in other people?!?! He now only looks forward to himself, and he is calls himself the best ninja. If he was still preparing to be a blacksmith, he would still cared about Nya more than himself. In season 4, he says, " Nya cannot do ANYTHING I can do." So that just proves that knowing that he is a successful ninja, and hero, he doesn't really care being close to his sister. I still think that Kai should not be a ninja. You see, in many ways, he is better not being a celebrity. And also, lightning makes fire, so that just proves how much cooler Jay is. I used to be a Kai fan, but this is why I am all for Jay now.
Kai may forget his sister, but after her passing in season 14, he really shows his love for her. He also confesses his feelings towards Skylor there.
Kai might not be the first to master Spinjitzu but he the first to tame his elemental dragon. And he became a ninja to protect Nya
He has the best back-story and had the most emotional character development. Such as when he discovered his true potential and found out about his memory switch. Which is why I like the episode "Tick-Tock" the most which I believe is in "Rise of the Snakes." He always was humorous and made an emotional comeback. Also he is a unique character, though I believe his personality is slightly declining when he became the Titanium Ninja, I still believe he is the best. He is the strongest, the bravest, and the most kind-hearted in many ways, he is the strongest on the team.
He can't compare to Lloyd or Sensei Wu, he made a dramatic come back and made the best character development in the series from when he was little to when he discovered about his father, and so on!
Where would the ninja be without Zane. He's the smarted of them all and the oldest. No wonder Zane knows so much, he's over 40 years old! Zane can be funny sometimes but everyone likes him because of his character. Zane can be unstoppable with his ice powers. Zane saved the ninja in seasons 11 and 3. Who knows where the ninja would be if Zane was killed off. Zane can also be CHILL and COOL when he want's to be. Zane is just cool robot. Where would the ninja be without him?
Do I need to expound on Zane? He's such a well-rounded character and the most emotionally driven one in my opinion. He's come so far (they all have really) from being awkward and strange to other ninja, to being accepted and even mourned when he is taken from the show (twice mind you). And despite everything that happens, you won't find a more sweet and caring lil cinnamon roll in the whole Ninjago universe.
When I was a kid I was a little different from my friends. We didn't really grow up in similar parenting styles (I am first generation American-Israeli) and we didn't really like the same things, but we all shared one thing: our love for each other, similar to how Zane was a little different at first. Recently, I realized that I was bisexual like how Zane discovered his android backstory, and I hope that I'll be accepted, like Zane was. Go Titanium Ninja!
He is the best ninja because he is funny and smart, and he is one of the best partners you could ask for. He tried to give Nya everything, and in response, when she acted so entitled and rude to him, he seemed to love her even more.
He is the most funny blu lighting ninja and said in season eleven secrets of the forbidden spinjitzu, bro bro goo goo! Oh Jay you make me and my brother laugh Michael David Adamthwaite!
Jay is underestimated by people because he is scared and makes jokes to patch it up. He was the first ninja out of the original 4 to have learned spinjitzu and his power was seriously diminished after that. Cartoon Network made him from the strongest ninja to the weakest ninja. The real weakest is Cole but they made him the strongest other than Lloyd. Lightning is also the strongest element and can be a substitute with fire. He has also been able to control wind for the briefest amount of time. That is 3 elements in 1. Jay also is the only ninja who is not dull or serious. He is fun. I am kind of glad in what they did in season 6, they made Jay strongest again but this was only because of the "love ruse" between Nya and Jay. Although this is still reasonable, in season 4, when Cole and Jay were fighting, Cole could override lightning witch would obviously blast earth into pieces. I also think that it is amazing how a junkyard boy could come this far. I also think that Jay's elemental ...more
Jay is by far my favorite character, and has been my favorite since the very first episode. Jay was the first ninja to figure out spinjitzu, the second to unlock his true potential, and was able to save the world with his final wish (that's pretty much what happened). He has such a complex personality (that I wish they would address more), the most epic of the elements, and despite all his humorous moments, he has a depth to him that makes him rather wise at times. Jay is also far more intelligent than anyone (sometimes including himself) will give him credit for; I mean, he does invent many wicked cool things throughout the show. He also has a very close relationship to all the ninja, considering them his brothers despite no actual blood relations. On top of that, he's a top-notch fighter and skilled combatant, which is why I'm excited about how the Ninjago team has actually given Jay some good fight sequences throughout the more recent seasons, and that gives me hope that they will ...more
I am very proud of this guy and I am really impressed by his life despite being more gray than pink he has not stopped there but has tried to see the best day by day. In his life and in people.
I love him because he is calm unlike his old self haha, he simply inspires to be better and become the best version of you, I loved his development process in terms of his character and not to mention his overwhelming humility, I love those qualities in him and so many others it would be forever to mention them.
I was impacted by his trajectory from villain to hero as well as seeing his resounding and genuine change. I love that despite the thousands of things he has been through in his life he still maintains those qualities and virtues that to me make him above all the best .
I also admire the big heart he has and the commitment of loyalty and friendship with his fellow ninjas from the moment he turned from little Lloyd to the green ninja he showed great closeness and companionship with his friends whom he appreciates very much. and his great commitment being the green ninja, his humility, honesty and transparency. woo!
I admire him for that and many other virtues that make him the best!🤩
My opinion is on Zane. I don't really like Lloyd. He never really had a big impact at first for his character development, which REALLY damaged his reputation and my opinion on him. I like Lloyd, but in my opinion, his back story has too many holes. Why didn't he join his father? Why did he go fight with the good if he chose bad? So many loops and holes and ways it could have went, and I don't think it matched well. The favor of him is starting to incline, but I don't really think it will have much of an effect. I believe that Zane has much more potential and has shown it. Actually, I think Lloyd had MUCH more potential as the green ninja and on his story, but it wasn't shown, especially it should have shown during character development, which is usually happened when they found their potentials. Which I believe is "Rise of the Snakes."
This is my opinion, so no hate!
I think that he had to go through a lot. Not saying that the other ninjas didn't. Lloyd had to deal with the pressure of having to go against his father when he was at a young age. He was also giving all that responsibility at that age. Lloyd had a strong connection with his father even saying, "He made me who I am today. He was my father. He was my adversary. But in the end, he was my friend."
He was even the one who got to banish him to the Cursed Realm. He was eventually reunited with Gormadon and then realize he had to sacrifice his father so Lloyd could save the world.
He later had to see his father be resurrected as his villainous self. He was terrified but believed that his father was still in there somewhere even though people told him that his father was gone. Lloyd had to confront his father, they fought and Gormadon showed no mercy, even stating he had no son. Despite no longer trusting his father, Lloyd heeded his words about the darkness and feared the ...more
Cole, in my opinion, is the best-developed ninja character of all the ninjas. He knows how to lead, has a great personality, and was a ghost at some point, which convinced Yang that he'll be remembered forever. "Rebooted" was such a bad season for him. Now, on to the good stuff. Cole also never wanted to leave anyone behind when captured by Chen, so he had to return to keep them safe in Season 4. He had to make his father proud while competing for the Fangblade, and he succeeded in regaining his father's trust. But in Season 13, he had to uphold his mother's legacy. He had to lead the Uply, not give up on anyone, and have a convincing personality. Wu taught him to never quit, so he regained his development. His curiosity was great in Season 13. We see he had a devastating backstory about his mother's passing and held a promise to fight against those who are cruel and unjust. The Skull Sorcerer, Vangelis, is the villain he had to stand up against. Cole thought that the blades ...more
One thing I love about Cole, and this can go for Kai too, is his ability as a leader. He usually leads the team, but he sees Kai's potential as a leader and lets him have the reins once in awhile without complaining, because he knows that Kai needs it. This is actually kinda deep considering the age demographic for this show, which is awesome. Other than Zane, he is most level headed of the group, and according to his voice actor, Cole was only 14 at the start of the series, which helps to explain his childish attitude he gets every once in awhile. He is also self sacrificing, as we all know. He doesn't really seem to have a problem when admitting he's wrong, which, considering his age, is honestly very impressive.
Honestly Cole has been my favorite character since episode one when sensei wu introduced him as "solid as rock". One of the first things he said to Kai when they met was "I got your back kid". He didn't even know Kai yet and had already decided that he would back him up and be there for him anytime he needed. That's true loyalty. He's always super genuine and self sacrificing and although he doesn't smile or make funny jokes quite as much as Jay or Kai does, when he does he has a sweet little smile and laugh. He is the toughest and strongest ninja physically and sometimes mentally of he group. Yeah sure, Zane is basically a walking computer, but Cole can be just as smart when he chooses to be. He is the kindest and most compassionate of all of them, and genuinely cares about the safety of others. He's a really well put together character who is levelheaded, strong, sweet, amazing, and incredibly loyal. Long story short, I wish he was real, because he would be my best friend.
Are you kidding? When Jay said he was the least valuable ninja I was so mad. Sure his powers aren't as cool as the others but come on he has super strength! And earth is one of the main elements. He's no where near invaluable to the team. That really lowered my respect for Jay, Cole is his best friend how could he consider him the most invaluable? I honestly do think he said that out of anger and didn't mean it since many times he's expressed his insecurities about Cole being stronger than him so he knows how much his powers are worth. But I'm mad cause some people in the fandom actually feel this way about him as being the least valuable which is mot true. Cole is my favourite because of his personality, looks, voice - he's got it all. Not too cocky like Kai, not to annoying/funny like Jay, he's got just enough of everything - and I hate when the show writers only make him to be someone who loves food and that's it. He has so much depth as a character and I can see it.
I think that Nya is the best ninja. In season 1 when they didn't let her fight she went and found her own way to become a hero. With the love triangle everyone gets mad at her but geez, cut the girl some slack. She wanted to make sure that she could end it without destroying Jays and Coles friendship. She knew that Jay would be more upset if he lost Coles friendship than if he lost her as a lover. Also, in season 5, she had to give up everything she worked for since the beginning of the show so she could become the water ninja. And the reason why she did was to SAVE LLOYD! That just shows that she cares about and loves her fellow ninja. I honestly don't know why lots of fans hate Nya so much, but anyway, that's why she's my favourite.
I don't like Nya's personality. I think its great the they finally have a female ninja on the team but she's just so annoying. Jay has been crushing on her since season 1 and would constantly go out of his way for her and in return she just treats him with rudeness and hostility. Especially in the first half of the latest season Skybound she tells him they will never be together even though he didn't actually do anything wrong. In fact I think she was out of place to in the Rebooted season when she lead both Jay and Cole on. Nya had shown no interest in Cole in any of the previous season's but just because a machine said they'd be a good match she starts liking him even though Jay has always loved her unconditionally. This affected Jay and Cole's friendship but Nya wasn't worried about that she only cared for which guy she would choose. I personally wish Jay would just end things with Nya because he deserves better.
Yes. Nya can get annoying when it comes to the love stuff. You have to admit she's strong though. She manages to find a way to fight early on when they don't let her on missions. I think she could have accepted Jay's love a lot sooner, or at least just reject him and didn't beat around the bush. Plus when cole got in, it made me hate cole for the longest time because of her. I didn't have a reason to, not really, it was only because of a dumb machine. Anyway, she is awesome but I wish that Jay and her were canon early on
She grow up. She didn't try to become somebody like her brother or Jay. She always supports the ninja. Remember the ninja ball run episode? Kai trusted Nya enough to pull the lever and viola the dojo's butt was saved. She became a Samurai designing everything for herself. She isn't embarrassed for not being girly. She didn't want to be the water ninja but she did it anyway. For her friends . For herself, for ninjago. Pixel is a more supportive character which ISn't bad I do like pixel but Nya can be both.
Sensei Wu is just straight up funny. Literally, there would be no ninjago without him. He was the one who trained the ninja's and knew where the golden weapons where. He help Cole on his journey to save the ninja in season 13 so it's safe to say that Master Wu saved the ninja in season 13. Sensei Wu is strong and beat all of the ninja in season 11 even though the ninja were lazy. We all love Sensei Wu.
I don't like him... like, your brother dies and you keep trying to catch his wife? What kind of person does that? Congratulations, Wu, you are definitely honoring Garmedon's memory like this...
He is such a great teacher. And just imagine how patient he is, especially with Kai. Wu can also be funny at times, and he is just plain epic.
He is always there at the right time, sometimes fights in random ways, and always are in some words of wisdom, maybe a dash of tea also!
Is he good or bad? I think he can change he has a very cool origin so he can be a purple ninja probably maybe he's bad maybe he's good but he is a good character
Garmadon is one of the most developed characters in all of Ninjago. He had a start as a typical villain, and made his way to becoming an amazing character. When seeing flashbacks for him in season 4, you can see that he really fought the evil from the Great Devourer. When the final battle took place, he tried to fight against the Overlord to protect Lloyd until the end, and Garmadon's finest moment is in season 5 in his final moments. When Lloyd arrives in the Cursed Realm, Garmadon gives him an amazing speech and says one of the most powerful lines in Ninjago:
"Whatever happens to me, wherever I am, I will always be with you. There comes a time when every boy must become a man. What sort of man is up to him."
Garmadon redeems himself throughout four seasons, and it's a shame that season 8 didn't do justice to his amazing character. When Lloyd tells Harumi about Garmadon, he remarks, "I had Ninjago's greatest villain as my dad. It was an unusual relationship." It would seem by ...more
Sensei/Lord Garmadon is practically the only character in Ninjago with half-decent character building. He was the dark lord after being corrupted, has a past of betraying his family and yet returns, good, to aid the ninja as their Sensei in REBOOTED and the Tournament, battling Wu and Clouse, before giving his life and freedom to save Ninjago from an army of "Anacondri Wannabes".
Evil, Garmadon could possess all four golden weapons and lead the snakes, skeletons and stone army. The Lloyd/Garmadon not wanting to fight story was a thing of beauty, defining much of the second season.
Good, Garmadon is wise and skilled, still having the abilities to take on nindroid, anacondrai or even his own pupils. His conflicted past reveals great secrets about him, yet he still strives to redeem himself in the eyes of Lloyd, Misako and Wu.
BEST VILLAIN. One of the best villains ever created. He had a goal, he loved, he hated, and he turned good. I love me some nice villain character development
One of the things that makes me like Morro's character is his redemption at the end of season 5, even when Wu tried to save Morro, he refused, he didn't want to be saved. I think Morro knew that, even if he were to try to be a good person, nothing could redeem him of what he had done in the past, his quote at the end makes his death hit even harder, "You can only save those who want to be saved", giving his character even another layer. Then comes the fact that, unlike the other ninja, he masters Airjitzu almost instantly, only a single read of the Airjitzu scroll and done, while the other ninja took at least some hours to even me able to use Airjitzu properly, let alone master it. I was also pretty sad there wasn't any wind ninja when I started watching Ninjago, and when Morro came on screen, I instantly loved him.
I absolutely adore Morro, I always love a good villain that starts out very evil but becomes good at the brink of death but Morro extended it even further and showed his dedication to become good again in DOTD when he had the perfect chance to come back for revenge but he didn't, instead, he helped the Ninja remember about Cole and went back to the Departed Realm at will knowing his work was done.
He is my favourite character that's for sure.
Morro has the best motives of any villains and is by far more complex than any of the others. He is better than all the ninja and defeated most of them numerous times
Morro is the master of Wind and is so strong. With his dark-great, deathly appearance, he is one not to be reckoned with!
The OVERLORD is in fact definitely above the rest when it comes to evil power possession, but in a way, you always need someone very very evil to have in ninjago because he is pretty dull and annoying in some ways but in the end he actually DOES come out and shows his FACE.
Really? My opinion I hate the Overlord, plus being the one whos favourite character is zane, the overlord is my least favourite character in the whole series because (I know zane sacrificed his self) but if pythor didn't help the overlord zane wouldn't of got kidnapped. Yeah I hate him a lot
I am not a big fan personality wise, but id say, either him, nadakhan, or time twins are the most powerful.
The overlord is the best of villains. He can destroy everything and command Python and Garmadon.
Hear me out. Pythor has never been hated by me, he's always been one of my favorites because of his personality and goals. He helps the ninja get stronger and develop more, plus he ends up being an anti hero/sorta ally later on and I think it's really interesting and beautiful
Pythor will always reign supreme as the best character. He's funny, clever and despicable. It's a shame that he only appeared in a few seasons, I would have continued on watching the show if he was shown for at least one episode( yes I only watched it to see him)no it's not creepy.
"Hello, old chum"
Screw garmadon( seasons 10-11) and morro, pythor is a titan compared to those weaklings. He's one of the few villains that actually is still alive so ha!
Is this guy invincible? I mean, he never dies! He survived day of the departed, and for some reason he hasn't been brought back yet. There are some snakes in season 11, so maybe we'll see him return then. Also, his entrance in rebooted when he says "Hello again, old chum" after pulling his hood down is awesome.
Pythor is my spirit animal. His malicious elegance and proficiency as a wordsmith are so much fun. He's a very well written character with a lot of gravity. Michael Dobson's voice work on Pythor makes him an absolute joy to watch every second he's on screen. The laugh! The delivery!
"Oh, you'll be missing more than him when I'm finished with you ninja. Hahahahaha."
She is my favorite character. In the later seasons, she gets kinda sassy which is hilarious but she still very kind and caring. She's always there for the ninjas (spoilers ahead)
E.g in season 9, she was there to help Lloyd with his training and sympathized with him when he wanted to give up. At the same season, Pixal stopped Garmadon from crushing Lloyd and Nya even though she got caught by the Sons Of Garmadon later on. In season 11, she saved the ninjas from the lava and Aspheera. And so on there are too many. (End of spoilers)
Without her, the ninjas might be dead and her compassion towards the ninjas may not really be through words, but actions. Pixal is also a very strong character, every time the villains defeat her, she'll always get back up.
Pixal is by far my favorite female character, and just continues to impress me as time goes on! The relationship she develops with Zane, to the point where they BOTH confess their love for each (indirectly of course), shows me that she is a really in depth character. She is also crazy smart and is an awesome fighter, able to tangle with the worst of villains! Pixal is just such a phenomenal character on all levels!
She was origanally cold and robotic, but Zane taught her love, happiness, sorrow, and a bunch of other stuff. She's very strong, one of the show's strongest female characters. She's been pushed to the sidelines several times, but has always found a way to come back. (Like when she was scrapped, for example.)
Please put her higher. She's way better than Nya and pythor and the overlord and another variant of Lloyd. Come on people. Pixal Pixal!
A brother who was under appreciated. A husband unloved. Garmadon son of the first spinjitsu master, grandson of the oni and the dragon, and father of the green ninja and golden warrior, was the dark lord who made the ultimate sacrifice GO GARMADON GO!
From a great devourer bite that make him evil to a good guy who was like a second mentor for ninjas. He slaughtered to save ninjas, their friends and Ninjago from master Chen invasion.
And then they make him evil again.
I really want to see more character development in revived Garmadon and can we please get that fake garmadon rating off no. 8
Awesome as villain and hero!
Skylar could literally absorb the powers of the overlord and the first spinjitzu master...
At the same time! How broken is this character. Skylar's great and all, but it's a good thing we don't see much of her, as she could literally destroy the series. The ninja should be glad she's on their side
She is super underrated! I mean come on, she and Kai literally save the day in season 4 and they kick her to the curb and don't really include her afterwards. Please vote!
Skylar* she's so underrated and awesome! She's the best female character because she never played around with romance and was raised to be evil but still changed for Kai. Not only that but she has an awesome power and SHE NEEDS MORE SCREEN TIME!
Daughter of master Chen (best character) and has an EPIC elemental power. Skylor is amazing and should come back later in ninjago.
Some of the best villains out there in ninjago, I love Skales a lot and he is the only reason why season 1 is not my least favourite season.
Why is he sad when he gets trapped underground, He is a snake!
Skales was a cool character, that's really it.
He just here because
Cryptor is definitely my second favorite character besides pythor. He looks sick and he's stronger than garmadon. and that laugh is sick."I will call you mindroid" He always makes me laugh when he says that also kozu should be on this list cause in day of the departed he says" revenge destory crazy!" which made me busrt out laughing
Cryptor is just an awesome villain and my favorite Ninjago villain. The problem is that he appeared in the shortest Ninjago season: "Rebooted" and that's why he isn't so relevant. Still my favorite Villain though
I love how the name "Cryptor" sounds and how cool he looks.
My favourite character
Misako is Lloyd's mother. She knew wu for many years. She knows tai chi. She can fight like Nia!
She's annoying and cares about paper more than her own life.
Why is lord Garmadon a better parent?
Ugh, she's such an annoying mary sue.
Absolutely is the best ninja, I mean he's the BROWN FLIPPIN' NINJA?!?! Clear contender for being the #1 spot but all the people on this website don't understand and put Lloyd at #3! If Dareth, the best character without a doubt, was at the top and everyone else's moved down this list would be on the way to perfection
He's so hilarious! Also, he's so stupid and somewhat brave at the same time but it just adds to him as a character and is so funny. He is a classic secondary character that has always come back and makes us feel at home. He brings comedy!
I love his narcissistic humor and his detailed torso design. Whenever he helps out on a mission I laugh so hard. Also in the bar scene in Season 7, he kind of looks like the Bear Jew from Inglorious Bastards.
To be honest I think Dareth should be higher considering that he is SO funny and he is powerless and is always trying to fit in with the elementals. I would personally put Dareth at 9th.
Skales in series three's best known quote, "is he going to come and destroy us, mommy? "
He is sorta just... there
He is the best
A more complex character that will be an ally or an enemy depending on the gravity of the situation, hard to find in this show.
Honestly, I forgot about ronin. But like ngl he is quite fun to watch as he beasts the ninjas because he's way cooler than them. He beats them up and then eats zanez wires for breakfast. He is very flashy in design, the god of flashiness but that's taken so he's the god of eyepatches and shoes. In all frankness, he is pretty cool and his whole thing about being like it's all about that breeead is like very endearing and I hope he does well in his future career! I'm looking forwards to it!
My name is the exact same as his but spelt different, I don't like when people dislike characters that have the same name as me.
While the ninja rely on their elemental powers. ronin uses actually skill like when he fought misako and sensei wu instead of taking a chance of getting hurt he used what was around him to escape he has tons of skill and is a master of combat. the eye patch and bandana and conical hat and sweet cloths make him sweet
1 think. WHY IS HE 24TH! He created ninjago, beat the overlord and created the four golden weapons. He also mastered the golden power and lived for 1000 years! He is number 1
I want to see more of him badly, he just has so much potential in my eyes, hope something major happens to him!
He is an amazing character !
Nothing known about him
I didn't know his name for a long time.
His design is so cool
She is ACTUALLiY a villain. You see, most of the villians that ninjago has had have one motive: To be the most powerful. This motive is set off by greed. Its not actually evil. It's just selfishness. You see, just like in real life, true evil is driven by rage. When someone feels bitter hate for someone, they seek revenge severely. This hasn't ever really happened in ninjago (excluding morro.) She knows what it is like to feel true pain, she has felt it her whole life. She waited for the moment for revenge. She didn't even care about power. What she wanted was for Lloyd to lose hope, and to fall into eternal despair. that's what makes her one of the best.
One of the best characters ninjago has ever had a true figure of 180 degree turn and man was her death moving.
One of the most interesting characters, as she only became an antagonist due to prior events in the show.
Harumi was an annoying character until s15-s16 that's when she started getting cool.
This guy's actually really charming and friendly. I'd consider him my personal favourite in all honesty.
Echo Zane was such a sweet character, it made me so angry when he got hurt.
He is cool because he is very nice and clumsy.
Echo zane needs to come back.
Ok he is pretty funny. I feel sorry for him mailingall those letters. You know what, I stand for all you mailman out there who hates there jobs
He is always in funny situations.
Umm... Do I even have to explain?
He is amazing!
