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

I love Kai because he is a title selfish, but does care about the other ninja and defends his city in a great way so I think Kai is good, but I like every ninja.

Mai is the best sometimes people he is annoying but he is not.

Kai is hot-headed, impatient and impulsive but his heart is in the right place.

He can be really serious, but can also be a jokester, brother figure, or leader

He is very powerful

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


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

Yes. He is my favorite because he's the most powerful ninja of all time. He is also a great leader and person. At first, he was such a brat but still funny. At first, it was kind of hard to believe that HE would be the Green Ninja. I started liking him more after he became a teen and became more mature. He especially became better after defeating the Overlord and used his powers better. I like him in S9 when he finds his voice and becomes the leader of the Resistance. I became so happy when he got his powers back in the fight with his father. Lloyd is the best ninja.

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

Jay is really nice and funny. He is a character we can relate to. For me, he is what makes Ninjago worth watching.

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

Wow these 2 are tied so why he is the fourth - Lolme

Jay is def the best. His dragon and vehicles are coolest too

5 Cole Cole

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!

I have always had a soft spot for Cole. He is just so underappreciated. He was the first one to be recruited by Wu, and has stuck by his side since then; I think he could be considered the most loyal and caring of all the ninja. He has such a sweet personality, and I can't believe the writers have deprived him of love so much; though he doesn't need a love interest. He deserves validation, from the fans as much as from the writers, who seem to have a thing for making him miss on the action and suffer. I think it is very true that he is the 'foundation of the team'; it fits him and his element.

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.

Has anyone noticed how much hate Cole gets in the actual show? As if the writers hate him. (When I see him being put down so much, it only makes me like him more.) Here are the examples:

In season three when he was a teacher I found it oddly specific that the students were saying "Mister Cole is the worst." like they all hated him for no reason at all? (he wasn't even doing anything bad, they just hated him.) Yeah sure, they liked him after he showed them his ninja moves but still, I think that was weirdly specific that the show writers added that against Cole.

Then in season four Jay called him the 'least valuable' ninja (I think twice.) And I didn't like that because I feel like that's how some fans feel about him and it looks like the actual show creators feel that way about him.

In season 6 when they get put in prison, a prison guy walks up to Cole and says something like: "Quiet earth, pfft. what is that anyway." When he walked away, some other ...more

6 Nya Nya

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

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.

Girls for the win!

Nya went and done somthing people thought only boys could be but she proved em wrong thanks nya!

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

He is very cute as a baby! I love his relationship with Cole 2!


He is awesome

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

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

Sensei Garmadon was a badass old man, Too bad he died, I used to be obsessed with this show - B1ueNew

9 The Overlord

He is so evil and kill Zane. best villian in the whole series

Does this count as the golden master, because if so, then he is the greatest of all time.

The main villain. I think he will come back in the final season when ever it is. the source of all evil, even though the oni came first.

I love this guys powers when he just began controlling Garmadon!

10 Morro

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 may be powerful but he is still a villain I'm team zane all the way

Best villain

Basically God
Best villain to be honest

The Contenders

11 Pythor

Pythor P. Chumsworth is my hero.

I like how he was driving the bus to where the great devour was but he got ruined by chen because he made himself a copycat sort of

He would go great for killing dora

He is one of my favorite characters in the entire series. He is clever, manipulative and without moral. If he was a good guy and didn't get defeated all that much, I would want to be him in the ninjago series.

14 Pixal

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.)

Pixal is a robot in love with zane. Pixal Is the one that made the mess also!

Cool not poop

Why can't my Siri make what Pixal does? #TRIGGERED - Ivystar

Dude, that kid is ANNOYING

20 Ronin

He is totally awesome and his ship is really cool he also be all the ninja even Lloyd he should be number 2.ronin is sneaky and manipulative

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.

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!

29 Brad Tutabone

A kid from the school of bad boys

30 Harumi Harumi

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.

Pure evil at its finest.

31 Ash

Ash can teleport and use smoke blasts

In the game ash is the best

He is cool plus he is one of the top 10 favourite elemental masters

The rumored purple ninja, a fuchsia mystery which will only be unraveled in time.

37 Lord Garmadon Lord Garmadon

He is the inventor of New Ninjago City

48 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
