|The Sixteen Realms|
|Location||The Ethereal Divide|
The Fourteen Realms, once referred to as the Sixteen Realms prior to the destruction of two of its dimensions, are a variety of worlds and dimensions parallel to Ninjago, which could be transferred via the Realm Crystal, an artifact that was located in the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu Master.
Following the apparent destruction of the Cursed Realm after The Preeminent was destroyed, along with the destruction of Djinjago, there are currently only fourteen realms. In the series, the realms act as the ultimate setting for the events that take place.
List of Realms
- Cloud Kingdom

8 other unknown realms
Despite being of different dimensions, the Sixteen Realms have multiple passageways and networks that can be used to access each other, with some forming naturally, and others having to be conjured.

- The concept of the Sixteen Realms is similar to the Multiverse concept in various other fantasy and science fiction franchises. Notably, the fact that Chima is one of these worlds indicates that the Ninjago and Chima franchises share a Multiverse, though whether worlds based on other LEGO properties are also presently unknown.
- Consequently destroying a realm could destroy a sister realm within proximity.
- The Sixteen Realms are surrounded by a infinitely vast, formless void, known as the Ethereal Divide.
- It is a common misconception that there were sixteen realms, including Ninjago. In actuality, the sixteen realms are parallel to Ninjago. Including Ninjago, there were seventeen realms.
