Spoiler Notes

  • The Master of the Golden Dragon's armor, known as the Dragon Armor, will appear as the collectible item in the sets. The Dragonbone Blade attracts Elemental Powers.

    • It was also said so by Dareth during the second trailer.
  • For April Fools day, Tommy Andreasen posted a status on Twitter with three events from Season 9, two of which are real and one of which is fake. The three events stated that the Ninja will speak the language of the dragons, that Dareth will unlock his true power, and that there would be a talking rat. So far, none of these events have been confirmed or denied. Additionally, The Hagemen brothers hinted that if Dareth didn't get a power, he would get a pet Dragon.
    • A post from the Official Ninjago facebook account included text in the Ninjago Language that translates to: "Dareth with the power of.." hinting that Dareth may get powers.
  • Echo Zane is set to return this season;[13] this will be his first true appearance in the series, as his role in Skybound was erased due to Jay's final wish.
  • According to Tommy Andreasen in an interview with Brent Miller, someone will die this season.[14] The identity of this character is not stated.
