Technoshipping (both characters are associated with technology; since Jay is a tech whiz and Zane is a robot)

Oppositeshipping (the former: fire + ice = steam; the latter is due to Kai being impulsive and hotheaded in contrast with Zane being calm and collected)

to:

* MagnificentBastard: Pythor P. Chumsworth. He is obsessed with restoring the Creation Devourer and ensuring Serpentine dominance over Ninjago. He is an extremely cunning and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] strategist, and is incredibly cruel and ruthless to his enemies. He even [[spoiler:willingly ate his own kind in order to survive]]. He constantly keeps up the AffablyEvil veneer, which only cracks in moments of extreme stress. He's also the oldest and most recurring villain in the entire series.

* {{Narm}}/NarmCharm: It's a little hard to take the plot twists seriously when the characters are still [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute-as-a-button]] minifigures. This doesn't take away awesome moments however and the characters usually act normal and not like they live in some toy chest.

* VillainDecay: Lord Garmadon, starting in the second season. In the first season, his personal greed caused him to betray his father and turn him against his brother Wu, and even in death, he became an evil mastermind who overthrew the lord of the underworld and spent years [[XanatosGambit plotting and playing everyone involved]] to escape the underworld and have his revenge. In the second season, he is recast as a TragicVillain who did not choose to be evil but was forcibly turned evil by the venom of the Great Devourer. When he isn't lamenting how BeingEvilSucks, he acts as a goofy CardCarryingVillain who brushes his teeth with knives, laughs at sad movies, and literally eats evil, a far cry from the KnightOfCerebus he was in the first season. It's odd to see Lord Garmadon change from the dark and sinister plotter from the shadows in season one to crying and whining and accusing the ninjas of cheating in a racing competition. In the third season, Lord Garmadon is even usurped as the BigBad by [[TheManBehindTheMan the Overlord]], the ''real'' evil mastermind [[XanatosGambit plotting and playing everyone involved]].

* TheScrappy:
** Lloyd in the first half of season two, being an annoying [[TooDumbToLive idiotic]] brat as a villain and TheLoad as a hero.
*** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Lloyd having TookALevelInBadass and generally becoming a more responsible character in later episodes may have changed that.
** Grand Sensei Darreth for being TheLoad. He was always creating problems that the ninjas had to solve, such as getting kidnapped by pirates in a TooDumbToLive move, and failing to pay his rent so the ninjas have to enter a racing competition just to pay it off for him.
