- This article is about the world. For the theme itself, see Ninjago.
- "Long before time had a name, the island of Ninjago was created."
- ―From "LEGO Ninjago: Beginning to 2014" trailer
The land of Ninjago is the location of the Ninjago theme. It was created by The First Spinjitzu Master, using The Four Golden Weapons. However, it had been split in half, the left side being the Island of Darkness, both surrounded by the "Endless Ocean". Besides the planet itself, Ninjago had 16 parallel realms, including the Cursed Realm, Underworld, Cloud Kingdom, Dark Continent, Djinjago, the Land of the Oni and the Dragon, and the Land of Chima; each accessed by various portals (although all of them can be accessed at any time with the Realm Crystal). In "Curseworld Part II", the Cursed Realm was destroyed, eventually leading to the destruction of Djinjago in "Enkrypted". This leaves Ninjago with only 14 realms. In its present era, Ninjago was portrayed as a liberal monarchy, although the death of the Royal Family brings the current political system of Ninjago into question.
Both Ninjago and the Island of Darkness are arranged in a yin-yang position and resemble dragons.
Though this is speculation, Ninjago, and the Dark Island, are the only land masses in the world, which from the space view in "Return of the Overlord", makes the planet look enormous. The "Endless Ocean" almost explains that the two islands are the only land masses on the planet. In The Void, Ninjago could be seen multiple times, but the land of Ninjago appeared differently, not to mention being obscured by clouds. In the episode, when Zane slipped off of Arcturus and began spinning back to Ninjago, multiple small islands could be seen, but barely. Which, in turn, proves there is land outside of Ninjago. The islands seen could have been a small foreshadow to Chen's Island.
In The Titanium Ninja's opening scene when the nindroids re-entered Earth's atmosphere, the land appeared to be much larger and wider, and shaped differently than in Season Two. If examined closely, when the Ninja re-entered following the Golden Master's debut into Ninjago City, the shape of the land is actually a satellite image of our world flipped upside down. In the top-left of the scene just moments before the ninja used their elemental shields, one can make out Newfoundland, which in real life sits to the east of Nova Scotia. In the show, it lies on the western coast, north of Ninjago City. With further examination, it shows that Newfoundland was in fact added in, but with additional land to the 'north' instead of open ocean and somewhat proves that the scene isn't rendered with the earth's image turned upside down. Although, Newfoundland was added in.
Ninjago City seems to be the world's capital city, which appears to have well over ten million people with its size. It is so far the only confirmed metropolitan area in Ninjago. The city was in many episodes starting in season 1. The city also appears to take a normal city look in the first-second season and a futuristic city look in the third season. However, it turned back to its normal look in the fourth season. The city is located on the northwestern coastline of Ninjago, and is bordered to the east by the Sea of Sand, and mountains to the north and south.
The island of Ninjago is originally depicted as monarchy in Season Eight. Throughout he series, the capital city of Ninjago holds classical liberal values including a free market economy and right to assembly. A free market economy is portayed as the roots of Ninjago City's innovation, notably present in season 2, when the Ninja worked in respective companies in order to make money for rent, and season 3, where the industrial breakthroughs of Borg Industries revolutionize the entire city. The citizens of Ninjago City have also been shown to have democratic liberties, including right to assembly in the episode "Day of the Great Devourer", when they protest the cities "snake problems". Although Ninjago City appears to run on a democratic free market, the rural areas appear to be fundamentally feudalist. The most notable example is the beginning of "Sons of Garmadon", where a samurai is portrayed owning peasants. In addition,the rural regions of Ninjago appear to be agriculture based and show samurai. Due to this large economic difference, the island's economic system appears to resemble that of neo-liberalism. Ninjago does not appear to have a military, having only the city police and the Ninja as their militia. In Season 8, the police abandon their guns for tazers, suggesting that gun control laws may have been enacted.
Also in Season Four, Karlof mentioned he is from 'Metalonia', which may also imply there is other land outside of Ninjago, although some recent speculation suggests Metalonia is a region or sub-country of Ninjago. In a couple of scenes, you can see few things from other themes, such as LEGO City, as seen at the jail, where you can see the LEGO City Police Badge, with the studs. In Child's Play and The Stone Army, characters were seen wearing orange Space outfits. In The Void, the Ninja were wearing the Spaceman's outfit. It is unknown why nothing in Ninjago is made out of actual LEGO bricks except for the characters. This is most likely because LEGO cannot afford the time and money to make the show brick-built. However, few LEGO elements and/or studs can be seen on some vehicles.
BackgroundNinjago was first created by the The First Spinjitzu Master using The Four Golden Weapons. In LEGO Ninjago: Official Guide, Sensei Wu describes Ninjago as a planet. In the Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu episode "The Stone Army", Misako reveals that the Spinjitzu master created Ninjago for good purposes, but there had to be evil because it was the natural order. The Overlord, an evil entity, fought the First Spinjitzu Master with the outcome being no side winning or losing. However, the Overlord decided to shift the balance by creating his indestructible Stone Army. The master, knowing he could not win, split Ninjago in two with his blade. This allowed the Stone Army to get stuck beneath the ground and the Overlord to become banished on the other side. He started life on the "good side" and the "evil" side has since been called "The Island of Darkness".
The Anacondrai Tomb is where the Anacondrai where sealed away. Since the former Anacondrai generals where banished to the Cursed Realm, only Anacondrai troops of lower ranking were kept there. It is a resembles a giant fang, possibly the Great Devourer's. When the Anacondrai where prisoned, they became, until cannibalistic, with only Pythor alive. The only thing left behind of the other Anacondrai are their skeletons.

Blind Man's Eye is a swirly looking storm located above the Wailing Alps. Inside the eye of the storm is the portal to the Cloud Kingdom. Because of its height, the only way to go inside is by getting on top of the Wailing Alps and using Airjitzu to get inside, afterward.
The Boiling Sea is an ocean in Ninjago so called because it is home to a number of active volcanos which superheat the water, making it one of the most inhospitable environments in all of Ninjago.
Hono Mizu was an ancient city that was destroyed in the catastrophe that birthed the Boiling Sea, with little but it's ancient library surviving. Ray and Maya later selected the library as a hiding place for one of the Time Blades, believing that no one would ever be able to recover it. Unfortunately, their children Kai and Nya were later forced to do so by the Time Twins in order to save Sensei Wu's life.
Borg Industries is a massive tower that Cyrus Borg built on the ruins of the Garmatron. It has a neo-futuristic design, along with a blue hologram light at the top, which is of the company's logo. Lights inside the tower are mainly green and blue. However, the lights and Borg logo turned red after the Digital Overlord infected New Ninjago City. When the Ninja destroyed the power substation, all lights went off; and when Zane found his way into Borg Industries system, the logo turned light blue. Cyrus Borg's office is located on the 100th floor. It is later revealed that the 99th floor is where the factory line is located, as well as a video game room, where the Digiverse was being created. From a certain perspective, the tower appears as some kind of key.
In Season Four, Borg Tower is no longer a part of the Ninjago City skyline. It is possible the tower was demolished after the Golden Master's attack, which may explain the lack of futuristic technology in and around Ninjago. However, it reappears in LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin. The tower also reappears in season eight when the Sons of Garmadon break into it to steal the first of three Oni masks.

Cliff Gordon's Estate
The Comet in Ninjago appears to be an asteroid with an icy atmosphere surrounding it. It has high, spiky mountains and deep fissures. It is home to alien insects that feed on metal. It was where The Four Golden Weapons were located after the Ninja sent them into space and before General Cryptor brought them back to Ninjago.
In a flashback in Comet Crisis, it was revealed that the comet used to be a great planet. Many aliens lived there. However, there was one creature who could turn into copies of everyone else. After confusement, the people fought each other, until everyone except for the creature died.
In Wrong Place, Wrong Time, the Ninja had used to Golden Weapons to destroy the Mega Weapon. The weapons eventually got blasted on the comet.
In Codename: Arcturus and The Void, the Overlord planned on building a rocket named Arcturus to retrieve the Golden Weapons; so he can complete his body as the Golden Master. Using the OverBorg to do this, General Cryptor and the Nindroid army lifted off on Arcturus and went the comet. However, the Ninja came, too. Later on, the Nindroids escaped with the weapons and left the Ninja on the comet. In the two episodes "The Void" and "The Titanium Ninja", it is commonly mistaken as a planet.
In reality, Arcturus is the name of a star.

After the war, much of the monument was in ruins. However, construction workers where seen after the battle, fixing the place up. A statue of Garmadon was also seen being constructed, due to his sacrifice to save Ninjago.

In "The Hands of Time" the Ninja help clean up the museum following the events of the Day of the Departed, and Acronix later comes her to meet with Saunders, who is revealed to be Krux. The museum is revealed to conceal a secret lab used by Krux for forty years in his plans to conquer Ninjago.
Stone Army Tomb
The Stone Army Tomb is a tomb beneath Ninjago City, where the Stone Army had once been sealed away. However, the Serpentine get trapped inside there in "The Day Ninjago Stood Still". In "The Curse of the Golden Master", the Serpentine managed to open the tomb, but they decided to live there so they will not get hurt from the Golden Master. However, the amount of Serpentine had been reduced, meaning some may have escaped or died; or the tomb is far bigger.
Temple of Fortitude
The Temple of Fortitude is a temple similar to the Temple of Light located in Ninjago City. It resembles a red temple with a green roof and a dragon head in the middle of the roof. It is a shield which can block Golden Power. It is where Stone Warriors had once hid from the First Spinjitzu Master. It is also where the Ninja got their Armored Robes. Its appearance may be a reference to the real-life temple, Sungyemun, as they are both ancient temples that have been preserved in modern city.

It played a minor role in the third season and played a rather bigger one in the fourth season. In "The Temple on Haunted Hill", it was temporarily under the control of the Ghost warriors.
The Samurai X Cave's name and appearance is a reference to the Batcave. Its role in the fourth season was also a reference to the Justice League TV series, as the Elemental Masters gathered up in the base.
The Sea of Sand
The Sea of Sand is a desert in Ninjago where Ninjago City and Ouroborus are located. The desert itself is empty and only contains bones of old Serpentine. It is also where Nya has her hidden Samurai X cave. It was featured in NinjaBall Run.

In "The Corridor of Elders", Garmadon banished himself into the Cursed Ream, freeing the ghost of the Anacondrai generals.
The Dark Dimension
The Dark Dimension is a place of dark power. It is where Garmadon got four arms, allowing him to possess the Golden Weapons.

The Departed Realm is a location mentioned, but not visited, in the "Day of the Departed" special. It is where the spirits of all beings-including Nindroids and Stone Army soldiers-travel upon their death. Using his own magic and the power of the Yin-Yang Eclipse, Sensei Yang was able to release the spirits of Samukai, General Kozu, General Cryptor, Master Chen, and Morro from this realm. He also infused weapons carried by the five and a staff later claimed by Pythor with magic that would allow them to send a living being to the Departed Realm-for the fallen villains, this would allow them to remain in Ninjago beyond the duration of the eclipse, returning to life. The villains subsequently summoned the spirits of several fallen henchmen to aid them in their efforts, but all of them-with the exception of Morro-were eventually defeated and returned to the Departed Realm. Morro chose not to seek vengeance, and instead warned the Ninja of Yang's plan before voluntarily returning to the Departed Realm.

Centuries later Wu and the first four Ninja were transported here following the return of Lord Garmadon.
The Never-Realm is a realm far removed from Ninjago and filled with ice and snow. The First Spinjitzu Master visited it on only one occasion, and only just managed to make his way back to Ninjago. Afterwards, he spoke of it it to Wu on only one occasion, warning him against ever attempting to travel there. At some point Aspheera learned of its existence, and intended to send Wu there in payment for what she saw as his betrayal.
Zane ended up being sent there in Wu's place, prompting the other Ninja to travel there to rescue him.

However, his tomb is guarded by three deadly traps and riddles, which can be passed by intelligence or the Sword of Sanctuary. The first trap is a room with 15 doors, which all lead to all 15 realms of the Ninjago universe. Each door has a character above it, and statue of the First Spinjitzu Master in the middle. The way to choose the correct door is by going in the center of the room and doing Spinjitzu, allowing the statues to move in the symbol. The correct door is then revealed to be the same door that was the entrance to the room. The next room includes the golden staff of the First Spinjitzu Master, surrounded by booby traps. The way to move forward is to simply fall down a trap door, leading to an underground ice land. Looking into the ice will allow one to see a reflection of themselves in the future. Inside the ice land is a maze, as well as ice which can reproduce once broken off.

Due to its unstable and slippery slops, the ghost and Ninja used mechs to climb it up. Above it is the Blind Man's eye, the portal to the Cloud Kingdom. The Wailing Alps might be a Ninjago version of the Swiss Alps, or the Himalayas.
Wildwood Forest is a dense forest near the Mountain of Impossible Height. It is where Lloyd commanded the Hypnobrai to built a treehouse. However, the Ninja destroyed it. It appeared in the first few episodes.
- Ninjago was first imagined to be Japan in the LEGO multiverse, but it was then revealed Ninjago is an independent earth-like planet.
- In Episode 55, the narration of a news anchor reveals Ninjago is a nation.
- Ninjago City and Stiix are so far the only urban areas in the world, which leads to many questions about the population of Ninjago.
- However in "The Corridor of Elders", when Jay is speaking to rally up the people of Ninjago to fight back against the Anacondrai, he states that their cities and villages are falling, which also implies there may be other cities as well.
- In the "Weapons of Destiny", when the Ninja's previous lives appeared in flashbacks, Jay attempted to fly a glider off of a skyscraper in a city. Later on, he states how he's always wanted to come to Ninjago City. This may also prove there is another major city in Ninjago, or it was a memory error on the part of the writers.
- The ninja always yell "Ninja GO!" before performing Spinjitzu, while the world goes by the same name, but smashed together and pronounced differently. (Nin-jah-go).
- A train once appeared in an episode, but as an old-fashioned steam locomotive, likely from the 1950s. Where it was going remains unknown, leaving speculation that other cities must exist. Ninjago City is home to many subways, and a monorail. In "The Greatest Fear of All", a railroad crossing appeared outside of Ninjago City beside a tunnel.
- Planes are mentioned, but never appear (except for Jay's Storm Fighter, Kai's Fighter Jet, Cole's Boulder Blaster and jet fighters that patrolled Ninjago City in Rebooted).
- Normal helicopters now take the place of Hovercopters.
- Ninjago was created by the First Spinjitzu Master with the Four Golden Weapons, although the Golden Weapons were forged at the Golden Peaks. It was also mentioned that the gold of the Golden Weapons was taken from the Temple of Light. It is unknown, and will most likely remain unknown how they existed before the creation of Ninjago.
- Ninjago may only be just over or under one-hundred years old, if Sensei Wu and Garmadon are still alive and well, despite being Ninjago's creator's son. However, the Overlord informed that he had been banished for thousands of years, meaning the lifespan of the First Spinjitzu Master or the brother may be longer than usual.
- In "The Void", after crashing onto the comet, the Ninja take a lunar rover to find the Nindroids and the Golden Weapons. If such a vehicle exists, this may imply Ninjago's history somewhat follows ours, and that the moon has been reached by humans. The comet also has the exact crater formations as in real life. This could also be so for undeveloped animation.
- Although 'no other land exists outside of Ninjago', Ninjago City has its own harbor, which technically makes it a trading city for other landmasses.
- Despite having television and cell phones, satellites are not mentioned, nor seen in the episode "The Void".
- In "The Greatest Fear of All", Nya informs the Ninja and the other Elemental Masters of Anacondrai-loaded trucks splitting up to what she describes as densely-populated villages around Ninjago City.
- Also in "The Greatest Fear of All", Nya mentions the Anacondrai have 'Taken over the entire Eastern Seaboard', which in real life is the entire east coast of the United States.
- Also in the "The Corridor of Elders", there are a few different views of a map of Ninjago in the rebuilt Destiny's Bounty, which once again takes the shape of the land back in Season Two, although it differed in Season Three. Still, the map changed view and only showed the northern parts of the land, not enough to make anything out.
- In Episode 56, a small satellite picture of Ninjago itself sits on the wall behind Misako.
- In Episode 58, a map behind the police chief reveals the southern end of Ninjago that curves westward is actually a string of islands.
- In "The Royal Blacksmiths", Cole stated that the Constrictai Fang Blade had found by Clutch Powers. However, it is unknown how Clutch managed to visit the world of Ninjago.
- According to LEGO Dimensions, there are various portals throughout LEGO worlds, that allow you to travel to other worlds in the LEGO Multiverse. However, it is still unconfirmed where the portals to Ninjago are.
- In the episode Stiix and Stones, while in Ronin's shop, Kai is visibly seen looking at a shelf with an old globe of the real-life Earth but doesn't notice it. This could be for lack of animation or care in rendering a globe of Ninjago's planet, or Earth is confirmed to be another LEGO planet in Ninjago's universe.
- The real-life version of Earth could be another realm accessible by the Realm Crystal, much like Chima is.
- If you look closely on the globe Kai stood next to in Stiix and Stones, one can see that the entire west coast of the United States is broken off of the mainland for unknown reasons.
- Although the portals to the Cloud Kingdom, Dark Continent, Underworld, and Cursed Realm have been seen; it is unknown where the portal to the Land of Chima is located or can be opened, without using the Realm Crystal.
- Though actual dates are not known in Ninjago, it's New Year takes place in July, when the episode it was announced on aired. This proves holidays are different in Ninjago, although in a previous episode, Kai mentioned Santa Claus.
- In Episode 55, Kai uses a smartphone to tell people he is at the Ninjago City hospital and Nya asks "Are you sending a chirp?!", implying there is a Ninjago-equivalent of Twitter.
- Dareth now works for NGTV as a commercial supervisor and is likely well-known to Ninjago by this point.
- Borg Industries still has systems around Ninjago City, such as information kiosks.
- Ninjago City Police officers have tasers, as seen in episode 56, and actual pistols as seen in episode 58.
- In later episodes, it is revealed that normal guns, such as musket pistols and shotguns as well as laser rifles exist in Ninjago.
- Jamanakai Village, for some reason, is now located in Ninjago City. That, or the ground was smoothed out and a city was built around it.
- In episode 57, a prisoner scolds Cole then says "What's earth anyway?" before walking away. This may imply that Ninjago's planet isn't called Earth by it's inhabitants.
- Before Ninjago City's massive skyline existed, it appeared much like a normal village, but also the region was snowy rather than desert.
