Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu is now in its ninth season. It is still one of the best TV shows on the air right now and remains one of the most enjoyable ones. The events that make up the story are perfectly related to each other, and all of them emerge from the same source: the First Spinjitzu Master.
Before the events of the series
Before the rising action in each episode, the TV viewers are reminded what the conflict is. Hence the importance of the introduction that makes understanding possible in the story.
“Long before time had a name, Ninjago was created by the First Spinjitizu Master by using the four weapons of Spinjitzu: the Scythe of Quakes, the Nunchucks of Lightning, the Shurikens of Ice, and the Sword of Fire. Weapons so powerful, no one can handle their power at once.
When he passed away, his two sons swore to protect them. But the oldest was consumed by darkness and wanted to possess the weapons.
A battle between brothers broke out, and the oldest was struck down and banished to the Underworld. Peace returned, and the younger brother hid the weapons. But knowing his older brother’s relentless ambition for power, he placed a guardian to protect them. And for fear of his own demise, a map for an honest man to hide.”
The creation of Ninjago
Lego Ninjago has an interesting story about its creation. The First Spinjitzu Master was born in a realm where the powers of creation and destruction were in an endless war. Knowing he could not stop the conflict, he decides to create what he wants to be a land of light and peace. It was possible for a while, but soon the evil forces would appear.
Ninjago was the island of his creation, but the darkness could not let him enjoy this peace and happiness. The Overlord, an evil creature, fought the First Spinjitzu Master in the original battle. The master defeated him, and with his powers split the island in two: Ninjago and the Island of Darkness where he sent the Overlord.
This master with a white braided ponytail and black kimono created the famous martial art technique called Spinjitzu. The ninja who masters this technique can become a powerful tornado. Along the story, it is said he had powers over the four elements of creation: Earth, Fire, Ice and Lightning. He created the Four Golden Weapons based on them.
He taught his two sons wisely and trained them in the art of the Spinjitzu. When he gets older and feeling the close moment of his death, both sons vowed to protect the Golden Weapons.
