Time is a secondary element in the world of Ninjago. It is associated with the colors copper, green, blue, and red. It corresponds with the Time Blades, Temporal Vortex, and Iron Doom. Acronix and Krux thought it to be the most powerful element.

Users' Abilities

  • Chronokinesis - The user is able to manipulate and control time.
    • Chronoportation - Allows the user to travel through the past or the future. It appears to require an immense amount of power, usually requiring the user to channel their element through a conduit of sorts—examples include Lord Garmadon's Mega Weapon and the Time Twins' Iron Doom.
    • Time Reduction - Allows the user to slow down time, reducing the movement speed of the affected object, person, or area. This appears to involve blue temporal energy.
    • Time Acceleration - Allows the user to speed up time foward. It can be used to accelerate the aging of an opponent or to make the user "teleport" by accelerating their own time for short periods. This appears to involve green temporal energy.
      • Age Acceleration - Allows to the user to accelerate someone's age to make them old or dead.
    • Temporal Rewind - Allows the user to rewind time. It can be used to restore youth to themselves or others or to negate a dangerous situation by reversing time until a moment prior to the event, allowing the user to adjust or prepare accordingly. This appears to involve yellow-orange temporal energy.
      • Age Reversal - Allows to the user to reverse someone's age to make them younger.
    • Time Stopping - Allows the user to pause time, freezing the target of their power. This appears to involve red temporal energy.
    • Chronokinetic Flight - Allows the user to turn into a substance resembling sunlight, and fly into the time vortex.
    • Time View - Allows to the user to see what happened in the past or what will happen in future.




  • It is possible that Time is the strongest element in all of Ninjago (excluding the Elemental Essence Powers, Golden Power, Creation, Darkness, Destruction, and Energy), as it took the whole elemental alliance, including Wu and Garmadon, and the Time Blades to defeat the Time Twins.
  • Chen was able to complete the spell without this element because it did not require the use of Time, like Water and Wind.[1]
  • Time is one of the few elements in the series associated with multiple colors.
