His face is golden with black eyes, and black eyebrows. His arms, hands, and skin are golden.
Lloyd has a tan hair piece, a Green bandanna that covers his mouth. He has a yellow face with a angry expression. His torso looks like a mix of all 4 of his ninja suits and plain green legs and gold armor. A version of this figure with Lloyd's ZX hood was released in 2016.
Lloyd has the same, mask, face, and hairpiece. However, he is wearing silver armor. His torso has the same printings as the old Techno Robe, but the golden parts are silver and he's wearing silver chest armor.
Lloyd uses the same ZX form, but has the 2014 face (only appeared in 70815 Police Dropship), instead of the 2012 face. He is armed with two golden katanas.
Lloyd DX has Cole DX's detailing, referencing how the Golden Dragon has the same head piece as Rocky, Cole's Dragon. Lloyd also has the ZX armor piece, and the ZX headgear, though without head armor detailing. His head is also exclusive.
Lloyd uses the same mask, head, and hair as his Techno variant. He wears a green, sleeveless robe, with all the Ninja's symbols written on it.
Lloyd uses the same head as his Techno and Tournament variations. He wears a green mask with his symbol written on the top in gold. He wears a sword holder on his back and has a green robe and legs
This variant shows Lloyd while possessed by Morro. In this version Lloyd has a black cloak covering his head and shoulders, with a transparent green mask over his mouth, which covers most of his face. There is green ooze dripping down from the front and back of his cloak, which is the same green color as the mask covering his mouth. His face is now light green in color. His torso is dark green and has a light green symbol. He has dark green legs with some belts.
Lloyd also received a Deepstone variant, which introduced a new hood piece.
Lloyd received Skybound robes similar in appearance to those of the other Ninja, including the Deepstone hood in black and dark green. Lloyd received a couple of variations on his Skybound look: one with a hairpiece and green half-mask, and another that featured no mask but instead came with a large chest armor piece first introduced in 2014.
Lloyd also received an Honor robe variant, which featured the Deepstone hood in dark green with light green headband and mouth cover elements. This figure notably featured a torso based on the 2011 torso designs for the original four Ninja, which Lloyd did not receive a physical variant of, with dark green arms. A version of this figure with gold shoulder armor and a hairpiece in place of a hood was replaced in 2017.
Lloyd also received an Airjitzu variant this year, a year after the original four Ninja received theirs. The figure features an all green ZX hood, arms, and hands, with a green printed head. His torso and legs are black with energy printing
Lloyd received a Fusion variant alongside the other Ninja, with his Honor robe hood piece returning.
Lloyd received several new variants in 2017 to coincide with The LEGO Ninjago Movie, in which he is the central character. These included several civilian variants, which all featured variations on Lloyd wearing black pants with a green hooded jacket. Two of these feature Lloyd wearing a white shirt underneath the jacket, with one sporting a new hairpiece. The other featured a combination hood and hairpiece, which was also used on a variant that depicted Lloyd with his Ninja uniform visible underneath his jacket. The movie figures also featured new face designs for Lloyd, which saw his eyes change color from the standard black to green.
Lloyd also received a new Ninja suit to go along with the movie, which incorporated a new two piece hood element that was black with a light green headband element. Variants of this figure included one without green printing on the arms, one that featured Lloyd's new hairpiece instead of a hood, and a kendo variant that featured a new kendo breastplate piece.
Lloyd also received a variant clad in White Wu-Cru robes with no hood, which was used for several Ninja.
Lloyd received a second White Wu-Cru variant this year which curiously combined a new movie-style head with his pre-movie hairpiece. He also received two variants in black Wu-Cru robes, one using his new hairpiece and the other using a version of the movie-style hood with no symbol decorating the headband. The black Wu-Cru legs were also used for Lloyd's Spinjitzu Masters variant, which featured a unique torso with black and green robes decorated with crackling green energy printing, plain black arms, and green hands. This figure also used the movie-style hood in black with a green headband.
A new version of the hood, green with a black headband decorated by a gold symbol, was used for Lloyd's Sons of Garmadon variant. The Sons of Garmadon figure was released again in 2019 with a new hood from the Ninjago: Legacy theme.
Lloyd's Hunted variants used either the hairpiece or yet another rendition of the two-piece hood, this one featuring a black lower piece and a green upper piece with a black headband. A third version was released in 2019, using the plain black hood with the green headband from one of Lloyd's black Wu-Cru variants.
Lloyd received two Legacy variants in 2019; the first was inspired by by his ZX suit, and included a new green hood piece with a dark green headband element. The torso and legs were green with printing depicting green robes with a gold dragon design on the front; the 2019 print featured a green sash, while a 2021 rerelease featured a bluish-gray sash. Lloyd's second variant was based on his original Golden Ninja suit, and featured the new hood with the same color headband but with the rest of the piece in gold; his new printed head was also gold. The Gold Ninja variant was rereleased in 2020 with a gold shoulder armor/scabbard piece, and in 2021 with this piece and a yellow printed head.
Lloyd also received several variants based on the Secrets of Forbidden Spinjitzu theme. Three of these used the exact same printed torso and legs, but varied in headgear. One featured the Legacy hood with a symbol decorating the bandana, another used Lloyd's hairpiece and a black half-mask, and the third-Lloyd's FS variant-featured a new hood mold with translucent green flames.
The FS hood was also used for Lloyd's Spinjitzu Slam variant, but molded in gold rather than green. THe figure featured similar torso and leg designs to the Forbidden Spinjitzu variants, but with crackling energy printing on the torso and gold arms. His head also featured energy printing around the eyes.
Lloyd received another new Legacy variant in 2020, with printed robes based on his Techno and Tournament variants. This figure was released in several sets, with a slight variation in which the figures in two sets featured a typo in the "Ninjargon" printing on his torso.
Together with the other Ninja, Lloyd received a Digi variant as part of the Prime Empire theme, which included a new hood mold and shoulder armor, though the latter was omitted from one release of the figure.
Lloyd also received an "Avatar" variant, in which he sported a gold mohawk in place of a recolored version of his usual hairpiece as was the case with Avatar Kai and Jay. This figure also came with a green half-mask.
Yet another Legacy variant Lloyd received this year was based on his original villain variant, complete with black hood piece, cape, and black legs and printed torso.
Lloyd received a Hero variant that included a new hood piece in green with dark gray metallic elements. Lloyd also sported a new dark gray shoulder armor piece and a matching right arm. Unlike the other Ninja, Lloyd's torso and leg prints were not simply modified from his Forbidden Spinjitzu variant, but featured new robe printing.
Lloyd's 2020 Legacy variant legs were reused for his Spinjitzu Burst variant, which also reused his Legacy 2019 Green Ninja hood. His green head and torso were both unique, featuring printing that depicted Lloyd's robed chest and head crackling with energy.
Lloyd received a third Legacy variant in 2021, this one being based on his child form in a Ninja suit. This figure reused his 2019 Legacy Green Ninja torso and the head from his 2020 villain variant. It also featured green short legs and a tan hairpiece matching Lloyd's on screen hair from before his transformation into a teenager.
Lloyd received an all-new hairpiece for his Island variant, which resembled the hairpiece used him since the movie line but incorporated a green headband element. Most releases of this figure also included a green half-mask, and two of these came with a dark gray shoulder armor/scabbard piece.
This hairpiece would also be reused for Lloyd's Golden Tenth Anniversary figure, which used the same legs as the Tenth Anniversary versions of the other Ninja and Wu. His torso print was unique, featuring a green belt and detailing on his inner robes.
THe new hairpiece was also used for one release of Lloyd's Scuba variant, which came with a new hood piece incoporating goggles that was meant to be used in conjunction with a new scuba gear piece.
The 2017 Wu-Cru game introduced a number of variants for Lloyd, based mostly on versions of the original Ninja for which Lloyd has no physical counterpart. These include a 2011 style green Gi, with a dark green sash, hands, and cloth at the neck. A Kendo style Lloyd is this same design but with the Ninja Kendo helmet and breastplate piece over it. An NRG version of Lloyd is all green except for yellow printing that reflects his Energy powers. A fourth variant of Lloyd resembles a cross between his ZX and Stone Armor versions.
Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu
Rise of the Snakes
A young, immature child obsessed with candy, Lloyd Garmadon attended the Darkley's Boarding School for Bad Boys.  Lloyd accidentally stumbled upon the Hypnobrai and their General, Slithraa, while running away from the ninjas. Slithraa mistakenly uses his mind control on himself when he attempted to control Lloyd but hit a block of ice that reflected the hypnosis, allowing Lloyd to take over the Hypnobrai army for his childish acts in episode 1 "Rise Of The Snakes".
Slithraa's second in command, Skales, and the other members of the tribe were frustrated with their general forcing them to do childish deeds for Lloyd such as collecting all the candy in Jamonacai Village, and building a tree house. After a battle with the ninja, Skales and Slithraa had a battle in the "Slither Pit" in which Skales became general and Slithraa reverted back into his soldier form. The new general then banished Lloyd from their tribe, who left with a map that he had stolen from one of the Hypnobrai to find the other Serpentine tribes in episode 2 "Home".
He succeeds at this by unleashing the Fangpyre, who helped him with many things such as creating new vehicles and almost turning Ed and Edna into snakes in episode 3 "Snake Bit." After being betrayed by the secret allegiance between the Fangpyre and Hypnobrai tribes, Lloyd decided to unleash the Anacondrai, but only found the last surviving member Pythor P. Chumsworth, who became his "best friend", to betray him. He was then rescued by the ninjas. In episode four "Never Trust a Snake", he chooses to help his uncle Sensei Wu, after being read a book also titled "Never Trust a Snake".
The next day, Sensei Wu puts him up to prank the ninjas for today's lesson to show them the destructive power of rumours and that jumping to conclusion can only lead to trouble. Then Wu says that he misplaced his lesson book, but when Kai found the lesson book from Lloyd's pocket, he found out that he stole it. Then Lloyd says that it was a perfect plan until the ninjas had to mess him up, after which Cole closes the door in front of Lloyd in his room interrupting him. When Nya calls the ninjas to the HQ lobby, she talks about Pythor trying to get all five tribes united. This makes Lloyd feel guilty and he probably feels sad or worse in episode 5 "Can Of Worms." At the end he washes Zane's suit until it was no longer pink. Lloyd gives Cole a can of nuts to say sorry, but Cole says there is a bunch of toy snakes inside. Then he walks to the fridge and opens the fridge. When opened, a bunch of toy snakes pop out and everyone laughs, even Cole.
In Episode 6: "The Snake King", he is taken into "babysitting" by Kai. When he drops Lloyd off at an arcade so he can look for Samurai X, he overhears Skales talking about a lost city. Buying a headdress, he follows Skales to the city, where he watches Pythor P. Chumsworth unite the tribes by defeating the leaders of the tribes using Sensei Wu's sacred flute. When he sees Pythor win, he drops his maracas (which were making the snake sound that made the other serpentine believe he was one of them) and is taken captive by the Serpentine. When Samurai X came to free Lloyd, she was not able to escape, she was taken captive by the Serpentine, and forced to fight the ninjas which the Serpentine were sure would come to save Lloyd. Samurai X pretends to fight the ninjas in a plan to save Lloyd, but instead she saves the ninjas and gets the golden weapons to give to the ninjas. Lloyd is still held captive in episode 7 "Tick Tock" and Episode 8 "Once Bitten, Twice Shy". In "The Royal Blacksmiths" the Serpentine use him to get past some traps in a temple so he can be freed, but because the fang blade was gone he was still imprisoned.
In the episode "All of Nothing", Lloyd is forced to try to save the ninja after they were captured getting the Fangblades. During this, he trips on the Green Ninja Suit, rolling right into the Serpentine. Before he can be captured however, Lord Garmadon shows up with the Skulkin Army.
In "Rise of the Great Devourer", he pilots the Bounty after Pythor tries to take the Fangblades. This meant Lloyd was tied to the training equipment and his mouth taped shut by Pythor. Eventually, he is freed, and warns the ninja. But he is too late. Afterwards, he pilots the Bounty (and the ninja) to Ouroboros.
Legacy of The Green Ninja
In Episode 18, "Child's Play", the four ninja are turned into children by Lord Garmadon, and to become adults again they must smell some "Tomorrow's Tea." However, when Sensei Wu, who has the tea, finds the small Ninja, they are at a comic book shop with Lloyd battling a Grundle, and have to also turn Lloyd into an teenager.
In "Wrong Place, Wrong Time", Lloyd is training with a large arsenal of weapons. Later, Sensei Wu and the Ninja confront Lord Garmadon. Lloyd arrives on the scene and freezes the tip of the Mega Weapon. After the ninja go back in time, a wave of dark clouds looms over Ninjago City, and a picture of Lloyd from a portrait disappears, indicating that he is no longer with the Ninja in the present. His portrait later gets restored. After the ninja destroy the Mega Weapon, they are sent right back to training with Lloyd. However, due to the Mega Weapon apparently being destroyed, Lloyd has no knowledge that it ever existed.
In "The Stone Army", at the Destiny's Bounty, the Ninja are awakened by their alarm clock, Lloyd tiredly using his powers to break it. Sensei Wu comes into their room telling them that the Ultra Dragon made a mess outside, and the Ninja leave Lloyd to clean up the mess by himself, saying that having a Dragon for a pet takes a lot of responsibility. They ask Lloyd if his mom let him have a pet, to which Lloyd replies saying that he does not remember his mom because she abandoned him when he was young.
One Stone Warrior toy slips out and Sensei Wu chases it down the hallway, though while smashing it, he runs into Lloyd's mother, Misako. When Lloyd exits the merchandise room, Sensei Wu introduces her to the Ninja. Upon meeting, Misako tells her son that she had her reasons for leaving, but Lloyd refuses to listen and leaves to another room to be alone. Misako finds Lloyd sitting at the edge of the bottomless sinkhole exhibit, to which she states that it is where she unearthed the Giant Stone Warrior. Misako explains that she abandoned him in order to learn everything about the Green Ninja prophecy, knowing that Lloyd would be the Green Ninja and wanting to stop him and his father from fighting. That it can work.
The Stone Warrior rampages through the Museum and confronts the Ninja. They try to fight it off to no avail, and they are forced to flee the room and run through the Museum as they try devising a plan to defeat it. They stop inside a large room and close the doors, and as the Stone Warrior begins to break it down Lloyd suddenly comes up with a plan and tells the Ninja to distract it. Lloyd leaves the room and the Stone Warrior breaks in. Misako decides to help Lloyd by leading the Stone Warrior to Lloyd's location. After she meets up with him, Lloyd manages to trick the Stone Warrior into stepping over the fake floor paneling, revealing the giant sinkhole where it was unearthed. Once the warrior falls, Misako tells Lloyd that she is proud of her son.
In "The Last Voyage", the ninja sail to the dark island on the flightless Destiny's Bounty. Along the way they run into a storm and the ship-eating Starteeth. When the storm passes the ship, which now is missing a rudder and and has a hole in the side, the ship runs ashore on an island with a prison tower. When the ninja get to the top, Dr. Julien greets them and takes them in. Later, the ninja sail further to the island of Darkness.
In "Island of Darkness", Lloyd saves Sensei Wu from a Stone Warrior after they are spotted on the island. Eventually, he joins the four ninja in Cole's Earth Driller, to the mountain. The Stone Army catch up, so Kai tries out his Fire Mech, and uses it to take them to the Temple of Light. All four ninja place themselves where their elemental symbols are, with Lloyd in the middle of them. They all receive elemental robes, and fight off the Stone Army.
In "The Last Hope" Garmadon uses a mech to disarm Cole's Earth Driller, and then Lloyd arrives to protect Nya, Misako and the ninja. He destroys his father's mech, severely injuring him, too. Lloyd attempts to summon the Golden Dragon, to defeat Lord Garmadon, but has no guts. They leave, with Garmadon's helmet. After that, they meet Sensei Wu at the celestial clock, and attempt to find the helmet's perch, to prevent the final battle, but General Kozu grabs it. Cole eventually retrieves it, and gives it to Misako. Unfortunately, they fail to place it on the discovered perch in time. Kozu laughs insanely, while a beam hits Garmadon's camp. The Stone Army kidnaps Nya, as the others fall off the cliff and into the ocean. Lloyd blames himself for this, because he didn't have the courage to summon the Golden Dragon. They walk back to the Bounty, while the Overlord presents his final gift to Lord Garmadon- the Garmatron.
In "Return of the Overlord" Lloyd and the others intend to start the final battle and attack the Stone Army base, only to find it empty. They see the Garmatron's tracks and follow them. The group is attacked by Nya, who has been turned evil by Lord Garmadon, and the Ninja buy time for Lloyd, Sensei Wu, and Misako to stop The Overlord and Garmadon. When they get there, they are too late to prevent Ninjago from being infected by darkness, by which the Overlord possess Garmadon and faces off against Lloyd. Although Lloyd puts up a stand, he is left with an injured leg and the Overlord escapes to Ninjago.
In "Rise of the Spinjitzu Master" Lloyd encourages the other Ninja to continue the fight when the others give up. The Falcon guides the ninja back to the Temple of Light, where they discover the Golden Mech and Ultra Dragon returns to the ninja. The ninja return to Ninjago city, where they are attacked by the stone army. The ninja try to draw the Stone Army's fire, but evil Nya destroys the mech. Dareth finds the helmet of shadows, and calls off the Stone Army. The Ninja help Lloyd, who was injured in the last fight against the Overlord, but are each turned evil by dark matter. In the end, Lloyd challenges the Overlord and finally unlocks his full potential—the essence of Light—and defeats him. This cures Ninjago from darkness, and also purifies Garmadon of his evil. Reunited with his father, Lloyd and the others state that they'll be ready if evil strikes again.
After the defeat of the Overlord, Lloyd tours Ninjago celebrating his victory throughout the first part of "The Surge" but flies to New Ninjago City on the Golden Dragon after learning about the Overlord. Soon, the Overlord returns to Ninjago, and infects Cyrus Borg's computer systems with the intention of draining Lloyd's powers so he can escape with his own body. Escaping with his father from the digital demon and his new servants, the Nindroids, he learns the value of balance in using his elemental powers instead of his golden power. However, he is eventually captured by the Overlord and nearly killed from being drained of his power before escaping, due to the Ninja successfully rebooting the system. Deciding that his gold powers were too dangerous for him alone to wield, he divides it for the Ninja in the Temple of Light, giving their elemental powers similar qualities to his own.
Yet, they discover the Overlord not only survived but is also going after the Golden Weapons, which will complete his transition as the Golden Master. Lloyd leads the mission to stop the Nindroids from space and back, fending off both them and metal-eating alien bugs, but they fail to prevent the weapons from being melted down as the Overlord's armor. Defenseless against his new power, Lloyd and the others retreat into the city's Temple of Fortitude where they power themselves with shells of Stone Warrior soldiers with the help of Wu and Garmadon. Lloyd manages to break through the Overlord's new gold defenses, but he and the others soon get caught. It is only then that Zane sacrifices himself to turn the golden power against the self-proclaimed Master, destroying both of them and icing the whole city. He is also present at Zane's funeral later on.
Tournament of Elements
Afterwards, Lloyd takes more of the role as leader when he and the remaining Ninja receive mysterious news that Zane is still alive on an island ruled by Master Chen. Hopeful, they head off in secret as according to Chen's instructions—even though Garmadon discovers their mission and follows. While upon the island, Lloyd learns that Chen used to be Garmadon's sensei for a time, and that Chen has actually summoned other elemental masters to a fighting tournament. But this turns out to be a front for Chen to steal their powers for his own uses, which prompts Lloyd to rally the other masters into forming an alliance to stop him. This does not last, as Chen uses a search for Nya (who snuck onto the island) to eliminate the other masters, leaving Lloyd as the remaining competitor. Thus, he finds himself against the might of all the other elemental powers upon fighting the cultist leader, and is defeated after a time. The scheme is busted when Kai and new ally Skylor, another fellow master whom she and Kai have developed feelings for each other, defeat Chen and destroy his staff holding the stolen powers.
Although gaining the upper hand, Lloyd and the other Masters find themselves facing a losing battle against the cultists, whom have been successfully changed into Anacondrai snakes by Chen's doing. From here on, the Green Ninja becomes the leader of the Elemental Masters and drives them, the citizens, and even the Serpentine to fight together successfully against Chen's army. However, the victory came at the cost of his father's life in cursing himself to the Cursed Realm in place of the Anacondrai generals' spirits, whom provided the final blow to the slithering imposters. Despite his sadness in losing his father again, he accepts the loss and burns the spell book used, knowing that Garmadon's legacy will always be with him and his friends.
Shadow of Ronin
After the incident, Lloyd has left to visit the Golden Peaks for unknown reasons. However, he is soon met by the Ninja who need help in their battle with the mercenary, Ronin. He and the Ninja then defeat Ronin, who escapes on the Reks.
After the loss of his father, Lloyd has been down. However, he soon hears of a ghost roaming a museum. After getting there, he meets Morro, who possesses him, becoming an Evil Green Ninja with wind powers. He then takes an Airjitzu scroll from Ronin, learning the fighting style.
Eventually, Lloyd was freed and defeats Morro.
Later on, Lloyd wishes Nadakhan to make him wise like Sensei Wu. However, it also turns Lloyd into an old man.
Day of the Departed/Pythor's Revenge
After racing with his teammates to the Ninjago City Museum of History to obtain lanterns for the Day of the Departed celebration, Lloyd went with his mother to the monument of his father to commemorate Garmadon's loss. They were then attacked by Pythor, who was looking to settle their score once and for all using a weapon empowered with the magic of Sensei Yang. Lloyd was hard-pressed to defend both Misako and himself, but was eventually able to draw strength from the memory of his father to fight back. Pythor was forced to retreat, but Misako warned her son that he would undoubtedly return.
Misako was proven right, as Pythor shortly thereafter returned and sought vengeance on the Ninja by stealing a piece of technology entrusted to them by Cyrus Borg.
Hands of Time
In The Hands of Time Lloyd and his teammates are helping Dr. Saunders clean up the Ninjago City Museum, with Lloyd feeling that the Ninja are partly to blame due to their conflict with the museum mannequins brought to life by Sensei Yang. During the effort, the ninja come across a massive painting depicting a battle-fictional according to Saunders-between the Elemental Masters and the villainous Hands of Time, which depicts Lloyd's father and Wu leading the charge against the enemy. Finished for the day, the group make their way to the Destiny's Bounty only to find themselves suddenly aboard, time having skipped forward a full minute. Analyzing the disturbance, Zane pinpoints the source as Sensei Wu's ruined monastery, which Lloyd recalls Wu had said he was going to in order to settle an old battle. The six ninja then travel to the monastery and are confronted by Acronix, one of the supposedly mythical Hands of Time, and engage in a battle that seemingly ends in his demise.
The Hatching finds the Ninja questioning a weary Wu about his attacker, and he shares with them that the Hands of Time were Elemental Masters who betrayed their comrades after the Serpentine Wars, forcing Wu and Garmadon to drain their powers using the Time Blades. The Hands of Time and the blades were then thought lost to time, though Wu saw a vision that indicated when Acronix would return. Thinking the matter settled with Acronix's apparent destruction and that of the Fast Forward Time Blade, the ninja turn their attention to unpacking their supplies into their new home, only to receive an alert of trouble at the launch of Cyrus Borg's latest product. The ninja soon find themselves locked in battle with the evil Vermillion warriors, whom they are only able to defeat after Nya and Jay combine their powers to drive them away. However, their victory is fruitless, as they find Zane knocked offline and Cyrus Borg missing after the Nindroid attempted to get the inventor to safety.
In A Time of Traitors Lloyd returns to the Temple of Airjitzu to watch over Wu, whose health appears to be declining; in Scavengers he overhears Wu lamenting over not having "you" with him when he faced Acronix. Believing this to be directed at him solely, he becomes guilt-ridden and decides to step up as the interim leader of the Ninja. Sadly, his efforts to organize his fellows meet with failure as they refuse to heed his counsel, but after speaking with Wu he learns that his master's regret was that he had not brought along the entire team. Relieved of this burden and recognizing his inexperience, Lloyd links up with his teammates to battle the Vermillion at a power station. Prior to this reunion, the other Ninja learned that not only had Acronix and the Fast Forward Blade survived their lost encounter, but that Dr. Saunders was in fact Krux, Acronix's twin brother.
A Line in the Sand finds the Ninja-minus Jay-facing the Vermillion at Mega Monster Amusement Park, only for the battle to be broken off when another Time Blade returns to Ninjago. The Ninja and snakes race to retrieve the weapon, and it eventually ends up in the possession of the Ninja, who make their escape. The Attack finds the Ninja overconfident due to their success, and even Lloyd falls into the trap, flying his Elemental Dragon into battle despite his awareness that fear could cause it to vanish. It does, but he is saved by the new Samurai X, and then joins his teammates in battling the Time Twins, through which they obtain the Fast Forward Blade as well. Unfortunately, General Machia then captures both blades, and she and the Time Twins then depart with a helpless Wu in tow.
Determined to make up for their failure, Lloyd and the other Ninja set out in Secrets Discovered, with Lloyd and Zane boarding Lloyd's new Destiny's Shadow vehicle after learning that Wu is rapidly aging due to his battle with Acronix. Accompanied by Jay and Cole on other vehicles, they make their way to the museum and discover a secret lab of Krux's with an entrance leading out into the city sewer system. Making their way through, they run into a group of Serpentine led by Skales and Skales Jr., who inform them that the Vermillion are the offspring of The Great Devourer and then pointing them in the direction of the swamp where the creatures are incubated. Reunited briefly with Kai and Nya in Pause and Effect, the team separates again for various missions, with Lloyd going after the captured Wu. Despite his best efforts, he is unable to retrieve him from the care of Commander Blunck and Commander Raggmunk.
In Out of the Fire and Into the Boiling Sea, Lloyd links up with the others-minus Kai and Nya-and rescues various citizens of Ninjago captured for slave labor by the Vermillion, and then head back into the swamp to rescue Cyrus Borg. Then then learn that the Time Twins have created the Iron Doom, a monstrous vehicle designed by Kai's father Ray, equipped with a time travel mechanism created by Borg under duress, and which requires the power of all four Time Blades to travel through time. Together with the new Samurai X, the four Ninja attempt to hold of the Vermillion and give Borg and Zane the chance to activate a self-destruct feature he built into his device, but fail to stop the Time Twins. The actions of the villains briefly cause Ninjago's history to be altered, but Kai, Nya, and a restored Wu's actions in the past restore the timeline. Kai and Nya are then returned to the present with the Reversal Time Blade while Wu is lost in time with his foes, prompting the Ninja to recognize Lloyd as their new leader and set their sights on finding Wu.
Sons of Garmadon
In "The Mask of Deception" Lloyd appears at Borg Tower to stop a group of thieves who are stealing an ancient mask. After handily defeating most of the group, he pursues their leader but fails to capture him. After seeing the thief escaping with a parachute decorated with the image of Lord Garmadon, Lloyd asks P.I.X.A.L. to contact the other Ninja so that the team can reunite. The group are soon reunited and contacted by the Royal Family of Ninjago, with Princess Harumi quickly catching Lloyd's eye. As the Ninja are patrolling the Royal Palace, Lloyd finds Harumi's room empty and the princess missing.
In "The Jade Princess", Lloyd pursues what he believes is a thief or kidnapper but turns out to be Princess Harumi herself, going out to help some of the less fortunate in Ninjago City. The two spend time together, sharing thoughts and observing the cruelty of the Sons of Garmadon before being found by Hutchins, who orders Lloyd to stay away from the princess. His sentiment is shared by her adopted parents, while the other Ninja encourage Lloyd in his interest. When the palace is attacked by the Sons of Garmadon, Lloyd escapes with Harumi and the Oni Mask of Deception, but ends up losing the latter to Ultra Violet.
In "The Oni and the Dragon", the Ninja welcome Harumi aboard the Destiny's Bounty 3.0 before heading to see Mystake to get her help. While Cole and Zane depart with her Truth Tea to interrogate Luke Cunningham, Lloyd remains behind with Jay to question the old woman. Mystake shares with Lloyd the story of the First Realm, home of the Dragons and Oni and birthplace of the First Spinjitzu Master. She then reveals that the three Oni masks, if brought together, will be able to bring back his father Garmadon, but in a darkened form with none of his former goodness. Lloyd then joins the other Ninja in going after the Sons of Garmadon, but at Zane's urging they allow the villains to escape in order to find out what they're planning.
Harumi is eventually revealed to be the leader of the Sons of Garmadon, embittered against the Ninja and Lloyd in particular due to the Great Devourer's role in the deaths of her birth parents. The evil Garmadon is eventually summoned, and after defeating Lloyd proclaims himself Emperor Garmadon, ruling over Ninjago City with an iron fist and his mighty Colossi.
In season nine Lloyd is part of a resistance force against Emperor Garmadon and his minions while Wu and the original four ninja are trapped in the First Realm. Their return enables Lloyd and his fellows to defeat Garmadon and liberate Ninjago. However, Garmadon warns of a coming menace that will destroy Ninjago.
In "The Darkness Comes, Lloyd is summoned to Kryptarium Prison by Garmadon, who repeats his warning of an approaching evil and urges Lloyd to release him. Lloyd refuses, but as he leaves Garmadon is confident he will return. Garmadon proves prophetic, as the Firstbourne and Faith appear from the First Realm just prior to the Oni invding Ninjago City. After narrowly saving several civilians and Cole from the encroaching darkness, Lloyd leads the other Ninjag back to Kryptarium and releases Garmadon.
In "Into the Breach", Lloyd is forced to confront his father's incomplete memories and arrogant bearing. When Garmadon insists that the Oni can be stopped only by destroying the Realm Crystal, Lloyd insists on accompanying him despite Garmadon's doubts that he can survive the dark cloud. The two enter Ninjago City and Lloyd proves able to breath, though he is distraught to find the populace petrified including Cyrus Borg. The two then engage a pair of Oni in battle, during which Garmadon saves Lloyd but frustrates him with his unfeeling attitude. Upon reaching the Realm Crystal, the pair are confronted by the Omega, leader of the Oni.
In "The Fall", Lloyd succeeds in shattering the Realm Crystal with the Sword of Sanctuary, but the Oni have already opened their portal and can't be stopped. As the two are pursued by Oni, the find the armor of the Golden Master, which repels the monsters. The two are then saved by P.I.X.A.L. and brought back aboard the Bounty, only to learn that Cole has apparently been lost.
In "Endings", the Ninja return to the Monastery of Spinjitzu, where Kai melts down the Golden Armor and reforges the Golden Weapons. Entrusting the rescued people of Ninjago to his mother Misako, Lloyd joins the other Ninja, Garmadon, Wu, and Faith in facing the Oni army. They are joined by Cole, who proves to be alive, but are forced back by the Oni. Lloyd is inspired to perform the Tornado of Creation, and the six Ninja, Wu, and Garmadon employ it. Lloyd then finds himself in the presence of the First Spinjitzu Master, who honors his actions and offers him the chance to join him. Lloyd chooses to return to Ninjago instead, to the joy of his friends who believed him dead; he then joins his fellow Ninja in commemorating their victory in the monastery mural.
Secrets of Forbidden Spinjitzu
Master of the Mountain
Lloyd appears as a non-speaking Master Builder in The LEGO Movie. Although his name is Lloyd, but he was referred as the Green Ninja by Vitruvius (to avoid a direct reference to a LEGO TV series that centers on a protagonist from the show that will give a major role in the film). He only had a few cameos in Cloud Cuckoo Land where the Master Builders meet. Lloyd later gets arrested next to Wonder Woman and then trapped in Lord Business's Think Tank near Green Lantern, Superman, and an NBA Player upon getting captured by Bad Cop/Good Cop's forces. Upon being set free with the other Master Builders by Emmet's sacrifice, he is seen mourning between Superman and the Native American woman Builder. When fighting in Bricksburg against Business' forces, Lloyd is seen with Abraham Lincoln performing Spinjitzu with his katanas.
Lloyd does not appear in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
Enter the Ninjago
Lloyd appears in the LEGO Movie short, "Enter the Ninjago." He visits Emmet along with the president of Hollywood, who tells him that they changed the LEGO Movie by putting more focus on Ninjas. He showed Emmet the Super Cycle Chase scene with Lloyd defeating the Robo-SWATS. Then he shows Lloyd giving Emmet the wheel he put on his head. Finally, he showed Emmet that Lloyd helped cut the wire from the battery in Octan Tower. During the time, Lloyd was seen meditating on the Double-Decker Couch.
In The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Lloyd deals with the struggle of a duel identity: serving as the Green Ninja, part of the Secret Ninja Force along with his best friends, while the world sees him only as the son of the hated Lord Garamdon.

Today was almost the best day of my life. I was eating breakfast when a package came from my grand-mommy and it was filled with bright, sticky candy! At my boarding school for bad boys it’s REALLY, REALLY hard to get any candy or fun toys because they’re always busy teaching us how to pull tricks and take over the world and stuff. I was about to smush my face full of candy when that bully Finn saw me and his face had a big smirk on it. He got up from his seat at the next table over and grabbed the candy away, using his powers to turn it into crawly bugs and worms. Disgusting! I yelled, “HEYYY, MY CANDY!” He laughed, looking around at his friends, and then he pointed to his t-shirt that read “Evil Geniuses Don’t Cry.” Everyone was laughing. I had to get out of there before he decided to stick me in the trash bin again.
I hid in an empty classroom and thought of a plan. What was the word for that called? I have to try and remember all the words from my Villain Vocabulary List. Plotted, that’s right. So I sat there and I plotted. I was going to leave Darkley’s Boarding School for Bad Boys and never come back, AND I was going to get more candy. Everyone knows the first rule of any mission is to dress really scary, so I picked the lock on the teacher’s closet and found an extra cape and a black helmet to wear. There were also some stuff the teachers took away from us, like a rubber band, rubber snakes, and a soccer ball. Rubber snakes! That was it! They looked just like Serpentine. HISS!
The best candy store is in Jamanakai Village, so of course I snagged a wheelbarrow and loaded it up. I got lollipops, gooey taffy, sugar straws, EVERYTHING! I threw the snakes at the villagers watching me. People hid and were scared. This is great, I thought, I’m going to have all the candy in Jamanakai and get a SUGARRRR HIGH! What would Finn think now, huh? Then those stupid Ninja had to show up, saying the snakes were fakes. They yelled at me for stealing. Before I knew it, people were throwing rotten vegetables at me, and those Ninja tied me up to a sign. This was just like Finn all over again. I felt a single tear fall on my cheek, but then I thought that Finn might be right about one thing – evil geniuses don’t cry! I am Lloyd Garmadon, son of Lord Garmadon and future ruler of the world!
I wandered through the Glacier Barrens to hide/plot. I was going to let those Ninjas see who they were dealing with. My luck turned around when I found this hatch that said Hypnobrai Serpentine on it with pictures of a snake using mind control. I was shocked…this looked like the real thing. I thought it was only a myth! I opened the door, and BOOM, fell down the hole. It looked like a snowy trap, and I could see millions of myself reflected in the ice. Just as I was thinking that I looked pretty scary, I saw a stranger – except he was just a frozen warrior dude, all bones. I started to shake. I wondered what happened down here... I’d rather be tied up by the Ninjas than end up frozen like him. All of a sudden I heard a rattling, and a bunch of TALKING SNAKES came out of nowhere! The leader tried to do a swirly thing with his eyes to control my mind, but I used my genius skills to move out of the way and deflect his stare, which bounced back at him. He was under mind control! I could make him and his army do anything I wanted! MUHAHAHA!
