Wu is a wise old man with a long white beard. He wears a white robe, and a conical hat.


Official Description

This wise, all-knowing mentor promises to teach his students to become ninja masters but first they must find their inner peace … or is that piece? He wants them to rely less on their mechs and more on themselves and each other. Wu is Lord Garmadon’s brother, and uncle to Lloyd. He carries a staff he can play like a flute, and a hat that doubles as a flotation device. Years of meditation have not softened this warrior’s edges – or his tongue – and though his students might think he’s “way old,” Wu is still full of surprises.[1]

Weapons and Abilities

Wu is the Master of Creation, and thus possesses the ability to use the elements of his students, barring Lloyd: Fire, Earth, Ice, Lightning, and Water. Likewise, he is highly proficient in the martial arts, most notably Spinjitzu.

Master Wu wields a staff as his main weapon that can also be played as a flute.



  • He has a dislike for the Ninja's mechs, saying they go against everything about a Ninja.
  • He can control water, fire, lightning, earth and ice; something that his in-show counterpart does not do.
  • He is right-handed.
  • He is 167 years old.
  • It was revealed that he has had a beard ever since he was an infant.
  • In the LEGO Ninjago Movie sets, he lacks arm printings but has them in the movie.
