Headscratchers: Ninjago

  • Let Me Get This Straight, Zane ends up angsting about the fact he's a robotic plastic toy person as opposed to a real, actual, organic... plastic toy person?
    • Not sure if all the characters are actually made of LEGO in-canon or if it's just a Visual Cue or a marketing ploy. Whatever the case, we know that that is considered organic in their world.
  • In Child's Play, why did Zane turn into a child with the other ninjas when he is an robot that was never a child?
    • Magic.
    • When the others asked him, even he couldn't think of an explanation.
    • The Megaweapon is made out of all four of the weapons, maybe putting them all together gave it something that could make things that are non-human (like animals... but for our example, Zane) correspond with the spell, and the effects as well
  • Um, at the end of "Wrong Place, Wrong Time" Lloyd is still older. How exactly did this happen if Garmadon never had the mega weapon in the present, and never unleashed the Grundle?
    • The weapon was destroyed so that Garmadon wouldn't keep trying to change the past and so that they could go back to their own time. Everything that led up to the awakening of the Grundel still happened, only that Garmadon no longer had the Mega Weapon.
      • Uh, what?
      • Basically it's a Temporal Paradox. It'll likely be explained in the later episodes.
      • I feel like the whole thing could have been chalked up to "the time traveling never happened but now there's no mega-weapon" if Lloyd hadn't questioned if Garnadon had a mega-weapon.
      • I'd explain it like this: it did exist, but Lloyd simply didn't know about it (he is unobservant). In terms of the "base" timeline's history, the weapon was destroyed at the moment immediately following the Ninja entering the portal.
  • How did Zane not know he was a robot? He had to notice the subtle differences between him and the other ninja.
  • How is Zane a descendant of one of the First Spinjitsu Master's elemental guardians if he's a robot?
    • Perhaps Dr. Julien was a descendent of the original Master of Ice and found a way to pass on his powers to his "son" to continue the lineage chain.
