“People of Ninjago! You may be afraid, because of this giant three-headed beast with me... YOU SHOULD BE! I, the Dark Spinjitzu Master, THE NEW EMPEROR OF NINJAGO! I will not stop until I find the ninja! So if you want me to stop destroying your town, BRING ME THE NINJA, AND MY FOOLISH BROTHER.”

The Dark Spinjitzu Master is the First Spinjitzu Master's little brother, and a current elemental master of Creation, Destruction and accidentally got the power of University, because he briefly held the Crystal of University. He had created the Elemental Robots and led them to Ninjago, however, they were destroyed. He later sought revenge and led the Videogame Monsters that escaped the NinjaTendo DS. He is the father of "The Secret Sons," Mason and Jace. He is currently a supporting character and an ally of the ninja.

He was formerly the main antagonist of the seasons Season 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19, and the specials.


He is former partners with the Oni and the leader, the Alpha. He promised that if anything goes wrong, he would help them. After the Oni were defeated, he created the Elemental Robots and sent them to Ninjago. After getting the Realm Crystal, they brought back the Oni and took over Ninjago, calling it "Destruction City." After they were in the Tornado of Forbidden Spinjitzu, the Alpha weakend and got sent back to the first realm, while the DSM escaped.

He forced Cyrus Borg to create the NinjaTendo DS. Then he trapped a bunch of people in it, in hopes of finding the Blades of Death. After the ninja return, they find out his true identity, and they fought. When he found the first blade, he killed Lloyd. Later killing P.I.X.A.L. and nearly killing Wu. Then he went to the First Realm and fought the Alpha. (Oni are immortal and cannot die, so he didn't kill him.) But he took all the Blades of Death and corrupted the Ninja.

He has shown to be hostile against the ninja, he killed Lloyd in Season 17 Episode 8, and the keeps frequently using the tornado of "Destruction" like in "Never Trust a Ninja" and "Interview Time" against the ninja and others, when he created the "Coloss-Oni-Bot" so it can destroy them when they returned by the end of Season 14.
