|“How are we supposed to stop them? Most of us have lost control of our Dragons. Not to mention we're outnumbered ten to one!”|
Gravis is the current Elemental Master of Gravity and was a competitor in Master Chen's Tournament of Elements, alongside the other Elemental Masters of his generation. In the second round of the event, Gravis fought against Griffin Turner, who used his element to claim the Jadeblade—beating Gravis. Afterwards, he was ridden of his powers and forced to work in Chen's Noodle Factory. Eventually, Gravis would ally with the other Elemental Masters to reclaim their elements.
Gravis and the Elemental Masters united against Master Chen, who completed a spell that transformed him and his followers into fake Anacondrai. Consequently, an ancient conflict was renewed, as the new alliance of Elemental Masters fought Chen's army at the Corridor of Elders before Garmadon sacrificed himself in a bid to banish their adversaries to the Cursed Realm.
Months after the war's end, Clouse released Nadakhan from the Teapot of Tyrahn. Infuriated over the destruction of his home realm, Nadakhan sought revenge on the Ninja and began trapping the Elemental Masters in the Sword of Souls to eliminate any opposition. At one point, Gravis was imprisoned in the weapon offscreen, but after Jay made his final wish, recent events were erased and he was freed.
Gravis is the descendant of the Elemental Master of Gravity.
Tournament of Elements
Gravis was one of those invited to participate in the Tournament of Elements. He accepted and met the other Elemental Masters on the New Ninjago City pier at midnight where they were picked up by Clouse to be taken to Chen's Island. While on the ferry, Gravis meditated while using his powers to make nearby objects float.
Gravis obtained a Jadeblade by taking the one Cole won from Paleman after he raised it in a moment of triumph. He later cheered when Karlof was shown to have the last Jadeblade and cheered louder after Kai outsmarted Karlof and won.
Gravis was announced as the second competitor of the first match, where he fought against Griffin Turner to obtain a Jadeblade from a cherry blossom tree. Although both had an even start, Griffin began to annoy Gravis by running around him and using the branches to knock him off balance: Gravis then buried the Master of Speed using the blossoms. He then levitated the Jadeblade towards him, but unfortunately, Griffin grabbed it first, knocking the master of gravity out of the tournament. Chen then activated a trapdoor, which Gravis laughed at since he was still levitating, though fell in when Chen pressed a button that somehow dropped a sandbag on him.
After the factory was put on lockdown, Gravis and the other imprisoned masters gather around Zane as Cole explained their plan to use the sewer pipes to escape, though the plan was foiled thanks to the arrival of Dareth. After they decided to build a Roto Jet to blast their way out, Gravis searched the factory for usable parts.
Gravis helped with building the roto jet and after it was completed he join the others in subduing the guards and escaping the factory. When Kai destroyed Chen's staff, Gravis' element returned to him and he helped his allies in defeating Chen's followers but Chen and a select few henchmen escaped. The Elemental Fighters captured Chen's henchmen and took control of the island.
Gravis and the other elemental fighters did battle with Chen's followers who were turned into Anacondrai before the Anacondrai Army escaped with the intent conquering Ninjago. When seeing Kai and Zane awaken Elemental dragons, Gravis awoke his own Elemental Gravity Dragon and headed after Chen's army with the other fighters.
He is then seen with his allies when twenty noodle trucks ready to confront Chen's army. However, the trucks began heading in various directions to presumably attack the villages, Gravis pursued one of them, only to find it empty.
Like many others, he lost his dragon out of fear and was left stranded as Chen invaded without problem.
After receiving a message from Neuro, Gravis met up with the other masters in the Samurai X Cave. There, Gravis questioned how they would be able to stop Chen's army as they no longer were able to control their elemental dragons. Eventually, they decided to make their stand against Chen's army in the Corridor of Elders. During the ensuring battle, Gravis fought bravely against the Imposter Anacondrai, and when Chen caused one of the statues to fall on the people of Ninjago, the Master of Gravity used his power to move it out of the way.
He celebrated with the other masters when victory was achieved. He is later seen making amends with the ninja promising to help them with any problems they might face in the future.
