LEGO Ninjago Magazine

The LEGO Ninjago Magazine is a Ninjago magazine.

Issue Comics

In addition to activity pages and advertisements, each magazine typically includes an exclusive comic, broken up into several sections throughout the magazine. Several of these comics were later compiled in the books Tournament of Elements, Ghost Ninja, and From Ghosts to Pirates.

Training Day

Issue #1 comic, set during the Tournament of Elements arc. Sensei Garmadon is eating with the Ninja when Master Chen summons him, with Garmadon warning his students before departing with Clouse. Upon arriving to see Chen, Garmadon is trapped in a cage, but expresses his confidence that Chen will not be able to separate the Ninja. Chen then informs the Ninja that he has set up a "training exercise", in which they must locate Garmadon within an allotted time or his cage will be dropped into the ocean. In order to find him, they must travel through the island's jungle, and they will be pitted against Karlof, Gravis, and a "surprise opponent". Cole and Jay propose splitting up, but Lloyd and Kai are adamant that the group should stay together.

Karlof pursues the group out of Chen's palace and into an underground tunnel, where a massive boulder begins rolling after them. Kai attempts to block both threats, but Karlof smashes through the rocks he brings down. However, Kai is able to solve the problem by throwing Karlof at the boulder, stopping both. The Ninja continue down the tunnel, where they find Skylor stuck to a massive web. Kai insists upon helping her over the others' protests, only to get stuck himself, forcing Jay to vaporize the web to free them both. Skylor then departs, throwing a switch that unleashes a torrent of water, sweeping the Ninja away in its path.

As the refilled river washes them out to see, the Ninja spot Garmadon's cage hanging from a crane on a nearby clifftop. Cole manages to climb out of the river with a vine, and then uses his power to launch the others into the air to join him. As they are attempting to free Garmadon, Gravis attacks a disoriented Lloyd, but Lloyd is able to throw him off. However, the Garmadon in the cage proves to be nothing but a hologram, leaving the Ninja still racing the clock to find and save their Sensei.


  • Skylor was referred to as "Sam" in this comic when it was printed in the magazine.

The Cave of the Anacondrai

Issue #2 comic, set during the Tournament of Elements arc. Following up from the previous issue, the Ninja are on a clifftop trying to determine how they are to find the missing Garmadon. Suddenly, a line of electrified posts emerges from the ground, seemingly giving the Ninja a path into the jungle. The group follows it but become lost, and are then attacked by a snake, though Kai swiftly deals with the reptile. As they move ahead, Lloyd runs into a thorned plant and loses consciousness.

Lloyd awakens some time later to find Nya with the other Ninja, much to his confusion. The group continues through the jungle, and comes to a large stone gate marked with Anacondrai symbols. Against Lloyd's urging, the others seemingly act to open the gate, and Krait emerges to confront them. Lloyd soon overpowers him, but the others are baffled when he questions how they opened the gate, indicating that they had nothing to do with it. After trying to close the gate themselves, they proceed inside, only to find a number of Anacondrai Cultists encased in crystal.

To Lloyd's horror, his friends, apparently under some evil influence, free the warriors. When the Ninja attempt to use their Elemental powers against them, the blasts strike Nya instead, causing her to grow into a massive cultist who prepares to crush them. Lloyd then awakens for real, revealing that the whole experience was a dream, possibly a vague vision of their future caused by the plant's juices. Undaunted, Lloyd becomes even more determined to stop Master Chen.

The River to Ruin

Issue #3 comic, set during the Tournament of Elements arc. The Ninja continue through the jungle and come to a rope bridge over a river, only to be attacked by Griffin Turner on Master Chen's instructions. Lloyd and Cole briefly subdue him, but he recovers as they are crossing the rope bridge and cuts the ropes to leave them dangling over the river. Falling into crocodile-infested water, the Ninja swim away as fast as they can, only to go over a waterfall. Just when they think they're safe, a giant Fangfish leaps out of the water and grabs Cole in its mouth.

The other Ninja search frantically for Cole, only to get caught in a vortex caused by his efforts to free himself from the Fangfish. Cole then leads the group into an underwater tunnel entrance, and they soon find their way into a tunnel where they can walk. Unfortunately, the tunnel network proves to be home to a giant Anacondrai Serpent, and the Ninja flee it only to come across a skeleton. Finding a drill in the hand of the late explorer, Cole uses it to tunnel through the wall, unleashing a torrent of water that sweeps them away.

The Ninja are washed into Chen's palace arena, where Chen and Garmadon seemingly appear and present them with a congratulatory feast. However, it proves to be yet another trap, with Elemental Master Ash and a pack of rats attacking the Ninja. The Ninja manage to blow away the smoke and drive off the rats with Spinjitzu before taking down Ash. Chen congratulates them, but then unleashes a herd of unnaturally corrupted yaks into the arena. Even more surprising, the Ninja see what appears to be Zane entering the arena as well.

As the Ninja fight the evil beasts, Bolobo joins the battle by growing fines to trap their feet, but Lloyd is able to rescue his friends before subduing the Elemental Master. When the Ninja turn their attention to Zane, Bolobo flees, only for Zane to start attacking them.

The Nastiest of the Nasty!

Issue #4 comic, set after the events of the Tournament of Elements. Kryptarium Prison is virtually empty due to the final battle with the Anacondrai Cultists, with only a handful of particularly dangerous criminals remaining incarcerated. Unfortunately, Captain Soto is able to break out of his cell and liberate his remaining fellow inmates, who soon escape the prison despite running into parties of repairmen and guards led by Warden Noble. The fugitives scatter, with Frakjaw and Bonezai swiftly being intercepted and defeated by the Ninja. While Zane and Cole return the two to Kryptarium, the others set off in search of the other escapees.

Stopping to eat at Chen's Noodles, the trio run across Soto and No Eyed Pete, whom they soon overpower. Unfortunately, when Skylor appears to question the uproar in her restaurant, the pirates take advantage of Kai's distraction and escape. Cole and Zane then arrive with news that a Giant Stone Warrior and several Nindroids have joined forces, while Soto and Pete have unwittingly locked themselves in the back on one of Skylor's delivery trucks. As she leaves to take them back to Kryptarium, the Ninja head out after the remaining escapees, and locate them at the Corridor of Elders seeking to hijack the abandoned Condrai Copter.

Cole intercepts them using the Boulder Blaster, crashing into the enemy aircraft and forcing it towards Kryptarium. Desperate to prevent their escape, Cole blows up one of his missiles to bring both craft crashing down, though both he and the Stone Warrior survive. Working together, the Ninja use their powers to drive the Stone Warrior back into the prison and eventually knock him out. They then carry him back to his cell, and are thanked by Warden Noble, who wonders if they would be willing to stick around to help out.


  • The Giant Stone Warrior is mistakenly identified as General Kozu, and though two Nindroid Warriors are specified in the beginning of the story, several more appear later on.

Ninja in Dreamland

Issue #5 comic, set during the events of Possession. The Ninja-including Nya as the Ninja of Water-are returning from a mission when they spot Lloyd, currently possessed by Morro, fleeing through a nearby portal. They pursue him only to find themselves in a strange forest, where they encounter citizens of Ninjago who are behaving strangely. As they question whether Morro has trapped them in some kind of illusion, they are attacked by several Ghost Warriors, and then find themselves plummeting through a strange vortex. The villagers fall asleep, and Nya follows them into unconsciousness, much to the alarm of her teammates.

Using Airjitzu, the group manages to escape the vortex, but when Nya opens her eyes they are green, a sign that she has been possessed. She begins attacking the others, and only after a brief battle is Bansha driven from her body. Bansha summons her fellow Ghost Warriors to join in the attack, but Nya recovers and is able to defeat them using her water powers. Unfortunately, she also knocks out her friends, and is left so weak that Bansha is able to carry her away as a captive. Ghoultar prevents the other Ninja from stopping her, and they are forced to pursue the ghosts into Ninjago City.

After nearly being run over by a truck, the Ninja come across a strangely behaving painter, whose artwork turns into a portrait of Nya and a map to her apparent location. Following the clues to a chocolate factory, the group enters it only to be attacked by more Ghost Warriors. Bansha appears, threatening Nya with her blade unless the other Ninja enter a cage, but Zane throws his Aeroblade in an attempt to disarm her. The ploy works, but in the ensuing battle the Ghosts manage to force the Ninja-except Zane and Nya-into the cage anyway. Bansha corners the pair, but they are able to save themselves and their friends by bringing down a water tower on the roof, which floods the factory and banishes the well as washing the Ninja out into the street.

Mirror, Mirror

Issue #6 comic, set during the events of Possession. A husband and wife find themselves plagued by paranormal activity, and the wife flees the house at her husband's urging. Pursued by Skreemers, she flees to Steep Wisdom, where Kai and Jay save her before bringing her to Master Wu. Having heard her story, Wu dispatches the Ninja to her home village to investigate, and Cole and Zane join them. After dealing with a patch of possessed trees, the four arrive in town to learn that a man has disappeared.

Entering the missing man's home, the Ninja discover that he is trapped within a mirror, and soon determine that the Ghost Warriors have possessed various mirrors throughout the village and imprisoned its denizens within them. Zane prevents Kai from smashing the mirror, fearing it could trap its victim forever rather than releasing him. Cole, having recently become a ghost himself, enters the mirror to free the man, only for a Ghost Warrior to emerge from inside the victim to confront him. Cole dispatches his foe and frees the trapped man, and Zane then hits upon a solution to the possessed mirrors: dousing them with water.

The Ghost Warriors, having been thwarted, attack the Ninja en masse in an attempt to fulfill Morro's orders for them to buy him time. However, taking advantage of a nearby dock, the Ninja spray water over their adversaries to banish them. The villagers, having freed their friends and family with water on the advice of the Ninja, appear to thank them for their help. Jay then complains to the others about a crack they made earlier about his staring into a mirror.

Screaming Fun at the Amusement Park

Issue #7 comic, takes place prior to Curseworld, Part I. In Stiix, Morro is celebrating his recovery of the Realm Crystal, but is determined to keep the Ninja distracted while he finishes preparations to bring the Preeminent to Ninjago. He thus tasks Ghoultar with leading several Ghosts to an abandoned amusement park and luring the Ninja there. Ghoultar's forces succeed, despite their bad acting, and the Ninja follow them into the park before making the mistake of splitting up. Jay heads to the arcade, Zane boards the ferris wheel, Cole enters a ghost train, and Kai hops onto a flying ride, only for all four to be haunted by Morro's minions.

Though daunted, the Ninja put their Spinjitzu and Airjitzu skills to work and soon overpower their attackers, with Kai capturing Ghoultar while the other ghosts flee. From him, they learn that Morro is in Stiix, and prepare to confront him, unaware that Ghoultar's efforts have given Morro the time he needed...

The Grand Finale!

Issue #8 comic, serving as an abbreviated adaptation of Curseworld, Part II.

Have a Nice Flight!

Issue #39 comic, set during the Hunted arc.

Order Must Prevail!

Issue #67 comic, set after Trial By Mino. Kai and Zane seek to learn more about the Skull Sorcerer by questioning the Geckles. However, Kai's new position as chancellor unfortunately is no help against the many intricate layers of Geckle bureaucracy. After going through the arduous process of getting the proper paperwork filled out, the pair must fill four and a half barrels with blue moss milk, which requires them to deal with a Magma Monster. That done, they finally get a question answered...only to learn that further information will require yet more paperwork.

Mother Earth

Issue #68 comic, set just prior to the Master of the Mountain arc. P.I.X.A.L. and Misako are working on the Destiny's Bounty, and P.I.X.A.L. takes a break after installing the new video game console. She enjoys a quick round of Prime Empire, playing as Digi Zane, before being interrupted and reprimanded by Misako. Getting back to work, P.I.X.A.L. discovers a photo of a young Wu and an unknown young woman, whom Misako recognizes as Lilly.

As P.I.X.A.L. is unfamiliar with the previous Elemental Master, Misako details her history. Lilly was a student of Wu's, who performed such brave feats as entering the Underworld to spy on Garmadon and Samukai as they schemed to kidnap Dr. Julien.
