―Kruncha, to Nuckal

Kruncha is a Ninjago minifigure released in summer of 2011. He appears in LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, as one of the two tertiary antagonists of the pilot episodes and a minor antagonist for the rest of the seasons. He mostly arguing with Nuckal. He is the Skulkin General of Earth and currently the leader of the skeleton army.

Description Edit

He has a large white head and a gray helmet. He has red eyes, a grey belt, and red and grey armour. In Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, he has a red belt and red armour. He has a gray monocle covering his right eye; however, in the Ninjago TV show, he does not.

Background Edit

Second in command of the Skulkin Army, Kruncha is the hard-headed, strong skeleton General of Earth. He has seemed to be good at driving, and Samukai trusted him as his responsible 2nd-in-command, letting him drive and fire the grabber on the skull truck. Originally, he served under the command of Samukai, who was defeated by Lord Garmadon, whom took supreme control of the Underworld and the undead legions. Seeking the Four Weapons of Spinjitzu, he accompanies Samukai and Nuckal to Ninjago to search for the weapons, and eventually finds a map to the weapons, after bickering with Nuckal, his dimwitted companion.

Later, Kruncha is seen helping the other skeletons mine for the Scythe of Quakes, as well as following the ninja to the locations of the Shurikens of Ice and Nunchucks of Lightning. The following night, he helped in the ambush of the ninja's camp and stole the weapons, but when Garmadon's plan to unite them at the Fire Temple failed, Samukai lead the Skulkin to the Underworld in a change of plans. At Garmadon's fortress, Kruncha and Nuckal guarded the entrance, but were trapped in a ferris wheel of bones when the ninja united to form the Tornado of Creation. After Samukai's defeat and Garmadon's betrayal to the army, Wyplash (previous third-in-command) lead the surviving skeletons, excluding Kruncha (who now is the general of the skeleton army) and Nuckal out to Ninjago to seek vengeance for their fallen king.

Meanwhile, the two plotted an escape attempt using the Skull Truck to steal the Weapons of Spinjitzu, but the plan backfired and the generals were forced to return them.

Now on the run, Kruncha and Nuckal met up with Wyplash and helped be to excavate the secret Underworld entrance in the Fire Temple to unleash more Skulkin. However, the plan was apprehended by Kai and Nya, who trapped Wyplash and the other skeletons (excluding Kruncha and Nuckal) within the Underworld, ending the threat of the Skulkin.

Now helpless, Kruncha and Nuckal traveled to Darkley's Boarding School for Bad Boys and became substitute teachers, but were told by Cole to leave Ninjago and never return, or else.

Again on the run, the two were spotted shortly in an unknown village, but were scared off by Sensei Wu, and also seen in the Blade Cup Talent Show booing the ninja's performance. However, they made a dramatic appearance when Garmadon re-banded the Skulkin army and lead them to battle against the Serpentine. The duo were seen fighting the snakes, (Kruncha was, Nuckal seemed to be more of yelling and dancing) encouraging the ninja to stop Pythor's plans.

They were also in episode 13, at the "take back Ninjago rally", dancing to 'we want snakes to slither away!'

In the episode Ninjaball Run, they competed with their Skull Truck. They performed well in the race, but they were provoked when they saw Lloyd and the ninja working together. They shot a skeleton hand, grabbing the Dragon and pulling Lloyd down, but didn't pay attention to the hand's chain, which wrapped the truck around a tree. They were last seen sissy-fighting with each other while a wheel of the Truck fell off.

In The Invitation, he was seen fighting Kai at the Slither Pit. He was defeated easily by Kai and was later seen talking to Nuckal.
