The Golden Dragon is a metaphysical creature associated with legendary Spinjitzu masters. He had his most major role in "Rise of the Spinjitzu Master," where He was summoned by Lloyd when he became the Ultimate Spinjitzu Master.


Island of Darkness

The Golden Dragon is briefly seen when Lloyd unlocks his full potential at the Temple of Light. He summons him to drive off the Stone Army after the other Ninja gain their Elemental Blades.

Rise of the Spinjitzu Master

As Lloyd had to face the Overlord on his own, he traveled to the top of the Overlord's fortress in order to fight, only to find his enemy had transformed into his original form. Lloyd seemed to be no match, but as the Overlord exhaled a massive cloud of darkness, Lloyd countered by surrounding himself in a green sphere of energy. Lloyd became golden as he gained the title of the Ultimate Spinjitzu Master, and he charged forward and sent the Overlord into the air, summoning the Golden Dragon to fight by his side.

Lloyd and the Golden Dragon hit the Overlord with a mass of golden energy and the Overlord circled them, covering the two inside a giant dark orb. Through the darkness, only the Overlord's face was visible, causing Lloyd and the Golden Dragon to fly towards him. The Overlord opened his mouth and attempted to consume them, but Lloyd and the Golden Dragon's combined powers forced their way out of the Overlord's grasp, defeating it in the process. With the natural order restored, the darkness over Ninjago City faded away and Lloyd landed shortly thereafter. After the Golden Dragon lowered himself to ground level, he disappeared into thin air.

The Surge

Lloyd uses the Golden Dragon again to travel to New Ninjago City to help aid the Ninja. He then later summons him again to help him escape from the city which had fallen under the Overlord's control.


During Lloyd's training to become the First Spinjitzu Master, he tries to make a bridge, but can't. So he decides to summon his Golden Dragon and uses him to create a golden bridge to the other side.



  • It was initially unclear and unknown as to what happened to The Golden Dragon after Lloyd lost his Golden Power to the Overlord, but it is implied to have become/been replaced by the Elemental Energy Dragon after Lloyd summoned it during the Tournament of Elements. Presumably, after the Golden Power was lost, leaving Lloyd with his innate Energy powers instead, the Golden Dragon was similarly "downgraded" to the Energy Dragon.
