Top Ten Best Ninjago Characters

Ninjago 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.

The Top Ten

1 Kai Kai

He went through a lot of development, and honestly I just hate Lloyd so yea

Him unlocking his full potential was one of the best moments. - GehennaTheSecond

Awesome character badass enjoyable and great character development

FUN FACT: KAI was the main character but now Lloyd is! Lloyd is so overrated, and should've never taken Kai"s place as main charecter. Jeez

2 Zane Zane

Zane is the smartest a and probably the strongest because he is made of metal (No offense Cole)

This character is awesome!

If anybody doesn't like Zane you should be kicked from Ninjago. Zane is the best. - Malemann66

Awesome character. Guys go down to #55 and boost Karloff up. - Malemann66

3 Lloyd Garmadon Lloyd Garmadon

I'm putting my vote out for Lloyd. I say this because he comes from a struggling past, and has had so much happen to him that's amazing he is still standing. His personality is quite subtle, and even so, hard to make out. I kind of dislike how in some fanfictions, people make him out to be a comic loving, candy chomping, immature child, even as an adult, and the reason that bothers me is because you can tell he is not that kind of person. Perhaps he still likes Fritz Donnegan, especially when I see him as maybe 15 to 17 years old, that I can see, even Jay likes it now because Lloyd was the one who introduced him, but the "GIMME CANDY" attitude is just not him.

In the first season, I absolutely hated the little twerp, thinking he had little to no significance whatsoever, even when he became the Green Ninja.

In the second season, he had some character development, and though we didn't get to see it, he was slowly learning to mature into his new body. That becoming a ...more

READ IF YOU LOVE LLOYD AS MUCH AS ME! LIKE IF YOU LOVE HIM EVEN MORE!

Well, after seeing every single episode of Ninjago, I must say the characters are awesome. I mean what's not to love about a couple of adorable, yellow, mini-figures saving the day? I sure can't find anything! It really is hard to pick a favorite character for many shows, but when it comes to Ninjago I know who I like. #LLOYD4LIFE! Lloyd is just absolutely amazing and I love him in a way words can't describe. But I'm going to try to give everyone a pretty clean idea about this anyway and try to make other people root for Lloyd too.

Here are my top five reasons why Lloyd is the best.

Reason #5: Lloyd is loyal. As far as loyalty goes, you can count on Lloyd. Remember when Kai pretending to betray everyone? Lloyd would never do something like that, even if he was pretending! Lloyd is super close with all of his teammates. And once in Hiroshi's labyrinth when his father suggested that his friends ...more

Lloyd in my opinion, is the best because he comes from a bad past, and does a rare thing,becomes a hero from a villain. Lloyd is also the strongest and even though he lost his powers he regains it defeats garmadon.

Ok, after seeing the last two episodes of season 8, I might have ended up liking Lloyd even more than I previously did, which I thought was pretty hard to beat. He was rash and dumb, but he did it for a good reason. He still believed there was good in Garmadon, when nobody else did. Well, we know that Garmadon doesn't really feel for Lloyd, his own son anymore, but that's not the point. The point is that he can see the good in anyone, even when anybody else didn't or couldn't. Also he seemed pretty good at making on the other ninja, seeing as MOST of the ninja (*bleep*ing Kai needed some persuasion, BOO KAI! ) were willing to give up their powers for him. I really think that Lloyd deserves first place for everything he has gone through!

4 Jay Jay

This is the best ninja ever, he deserves to be the main character
In certain series the main character who lives a love story and jay from the first episode in the pilots love nya and she loves him too
I don't know why they put him as the weakest ninja
In season 4 cole beats him, in season 1 kai did too
Even nya was able to beat him in the shorts
He deserves better then that
Even his weapon is the weakest
Why Ninjago? Why?
In his own season he didn't shine well
I hope he become a better ninja in next seasons

Jay has been my favorite form day one not only is he cute,funny,smart,kind and talks so much in one days that you could write a book on what he says alone and that's just one day. He can also really lighten the mood with his jokes and can fix or make just about anything you think so just by putting his mind to it we even have the same cut on my eyebrow and the same personality for that matter I am the real life girl version of Jay Walker.

Jay is the most lovable character in Ninjago. He has the most powerful element, lightning. In season one he was shown in one episode to be able to control wind to a certain degree and in season 6 his lightning started a fire. So he technically has three elements rolled into one! He has the most personality out of all the ninja and is the funniest character.

Its confirmed that Jay using those wind powers was a mistake on the ninjago team. - AdiJack

Many people undersestimate the fact that Jay has the most powerful element. People forget that lightning is more dangerous than all the other ninjas elements combined. People also forget that LIGHTNING CREATES FIRE. Jay literally can create two elements. Also, since the series began they have really lowered jay's skills. He used to be the most powerful ninja. He was the first ninja to learn spinjitsu really helped the team. They have really lowered his power level since then and now have made him the weakest ninja. In season four, when Jay fought Cole, Cole's earth power was overpowering Jay's lightning. This didn't make any sense. The Lightning clearly would have powered through the earth with ease of the didn't constantly lower Jay's power in the show. Jay is my favorite character and has the most potential out of the other Ninja except for Lloyd. But I don't like Lloyd's personality. It is very dull and drab. Jay mixes power with personality to create the perfect character. That is ...more

5 Cole Cole

Cole is my favorite ninja, right beside Lloyd. He truly is the foundation of the team and deserves to be higher on this list. He puts his teammates before himself, and he puts the mission before himself. He risked everything to get the power to use airjitzsu, not just for himself but for his whole team. He stayed behind and turned into a ghost not because he wanted the glory of saying that he was the best ninja because he stayed behind and got the scroll (probably what kai would do lol), but because he knew how important it was to defeating Morrow and saving Ninjago. Cole has proved that he thinks reasonably and isn't "the dummy of the team", and also isn't just a bottomless stomach. He is funny when he needs to be and serious when it's not the time for jokes. Cole could be a really good character if the writers weren't always benching him all the time. At the beginning of season 4, Cole says that he is tired of fighting and tired of putting up with Jay. Cole didn't even know that he ...more

Remember in the beginning when they found out that one of them could be the green ninja they had this tournament and stuff and whoever won was destined to be the green ninja. Yeah Cole won against Zane and Zane right now is #2! And in the episode it looked like Cole was about to win until Kai went try hard and then the fire power in the sword reacted. Cole has endured through way more then Lloyd by training and working as hard as he can to just be him. Wu found him first for a reason (he need a good foundation to the team). Comparing the powers Earth to Fire, Water, Lightning? , and Ice. Earth is the World so if Cole could harness the power of the world then he would be the best but the writers obviously hate him because of everything that they didn't let him stay like in the Tournament of Elements when they decided he be the one kicked out. I mean at least they gave him a little bit of showing off when he freed every single elemental master that lost to Chen without his powers. Cole ...more

Well, he's not my favorite ninja but he should be more appreciated. Although he's my 5th favorite of the ninja, he needs more fans. Well, sure, his powers may not be as cool as the other ninja's but he has super strength! And he has a good personality. He cares about his teammates a lot and is very loyal to them! He is a dependable ninja. He puts the need of his teammates above his own. I wish he gets more attention in the show. He was only the focus of a 45 minute special! He at least got some attention in Season 10 when he fell into the darkness and almost died! He's such an underrated character!

Unlike contrary evidence Cole, is actually one of the most intelligent ninja on the team, being very straightforward with his goals

6 Nya Nya

In my opinion Nya is the best ninja she is so inspiring. I remember when I was young I always told my friends that I wanted to be a ninja but they only told me that girls can't be ninjas but I learned from Nya that any girl (and boy) can be anything.

It's ironic that her picture shows her with fire streaks but her element is water

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.

Girls for the win!

7 Sensei Wu Sensei Wu

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!

Plus he's Wu come on, He's the best I think - Malemann66

Put Wu above Nya, Nya is beter now that she's a ninja but before she was super annoying. - Malemann66

IT is literally impossible to hate Sensei Wu and Sensei Garmadon; they are legendary and awesome and kind and somewhat funny and they are just so good

8 Sensei Garmadon

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

I love his connection to his son, wife and brother.

Garmadon has taken many forms and as a sensei is calm but firm

Garmadon is the greatest father I totally agree with the first comment

9 The Overlord

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 want overlord

It was so cool when the overlord created the stone Army and the nindroids. He could beat the first Spinjitzu Master with them

He's so evil, and interesting to learn about. (Even though I hate villians).

10 Morro

Morro was a villain but who cares he's my favorite non ninja. - Malemann66

Morro is awesome, I wish he didn't die in season 5. - Malemann66

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

He is better than Lloyd

The Contenders

11 Pythor

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. - Tstardoughnuts

This man is legendary. One of the best characters in all of Ninjago. No matter his standing vs the ninja, he always has something interesting going on.

Pythor P. Chumsworth is my hero.

He is invincabal he survived geting eaten by the great devower he also eats the overlord he almost killed lioyd on the day of the departed, if anyone is going to rule the world it's going to be me. Python t chumsworth

12 Pixal

PIXAL is smart, and at the same time, she's so sweet.

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! - Malemann66

Come on people Pythor is 11 but pixal cnt even make it to the top ten! - Malemann66

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.)

15 Garmadon Garmadon

Come on guys, he needs more love. He was only evil because of that stupid snake biting him when he was a kid. He loved his son even then and couldn't help being evil. I hated him when I saw that he was trying to take over ninjago but saw that he loved his family and tried to protect his son as he could and even sacrificing himself for Ninjago for the pain he caused. I almost cried when he told Lloyd he was going to be the sacrifice and Lloyd got mad because he was so sad he was going to lose his father and had flashbacks of him when he was younger with evil Garmadon. He finally understood that he had to give up his life and accepted his fate. Garmadon even felt guilty for the love letter that was supposed to be for Misako from Wu but taking it and signing his name instead. GARMADON NEEDS MORE LOVE PEOPLE! He's not cruel and evil but loving, caring, forgiving and wise like his younger brother Wu. #Garmadonneedsmorelove

I really want to see more character development in revived Garmadon and can we please get that fake garmadon rating off no. 8 - Malemann66

Garmadon scarified his life for ninjago give hims some respect.But why did he come back a villain the set free from bite.

What kind of trash image is that - Penguino

Why is she no even the main character!?!?

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 - Tstardoughnuts

Should be first

Dareth is awesome. - Malemann66

Dareth is very cheery and has a good personality - TENTACRUEL

26 First Spinjitzu Master

Not all seasons the seasons are pilot season 1 season 2 season 3 season 4 season 5 season 6 day of the departed season 7 season 8

I have seen every episode of Ninjago season 1,season 2,season 3,season 4,season5 and season 6

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

GEE, I think that ZANE is BETTER than the spinjitzu master... The ONLY thing the spinjitzu master did was separate the world, Zane DESTROYED THE OVERLORD!

30 Harumi Harumi

One of the best characters ninjago has ever had a true figure of 180 degree turn and man was her death moving. - Malemann66

Who? - GehennaTheSecond

Please Let Harumi Live She Understood What lIoyd Meant By That. There love For Each Other are powerful than Anything

She is ACTUALLiY a villian. 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.

He is the inventor of New Ninjago City

50 Master Chen

I just think he is the best character of the series. Both with his manipulative and at the same point childish personality, it brings me a lot of joy on his behalf.

Chen is weak. The only reason he became strong was because he stole everyone's powers and used them. Chen has no powers. He doesn't have powers.

Never liked him - appsdata
