If you were born in the late 1980s, or live with under-12s, chances are that you’re aware of a LEGO universe called Ninjago – where a bunch of undisciplined teenagers train as secret ninja warriors under the tutelage of a white-bearded Sensei Wu (voiced by Jackie Chan), whose appearance is a dead ringer for Kill Bill’s Pai Mei.

And even if you were not aware of Ninjago City and its plastic inhabitants up until now, it’s ok – the fun, ass-kicking story behind The LEGO Ninjago Movie is easy to love. It’s a story of brother versus brother, light versus dark, and good versus dad (yes, dad. More below).

To help you relate to and get acquainted with Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane, Nya, and Garmadon, The Popping Post has painstakingly devised this completely unqualified personality quiz. Get your mental pencil ready; results will be revealed at the end of this article as to Which Ninjago Character You Are.


1. You’re going out on a date with the girl or guy of your dreams. How do you get ready?
a) I oil my hair, put on a real fancy suit and rehearse partially true stories of my incredible feats.
b) I’m on fire. I’ll bring her to the theme park for a thrilling night she won’t forget.
c) Computing optimal conversation points…
d) I’ll just be myself and show my date that there’s no reason to think he isn’t good enough.
e) I’m going to impress her by sharing with her my ambitious plans of how I’m going to conquer the world.

2. Your relationship with your dad is:
a) My dad has his quirks, but he’s the coolest.
b) I wished Dad were still around. I keep his legacy alive by forging weapons using the traditional methods he taught me.
c) We have a rocky relationship. Dad has to respect that I want to be a ninja, not a dancer.
d) My dad taught me that I can be anything I want to be and to forge my own path.
e) My dad argues that he couldn’t have ruined my life, because he was never there. These days, he sometimes butt-dials me.

3. Which elemental power do you best identify with?
a) I channel electricity with my lightning-fast reflexes.

c) I like being literally down-to-earth. As long as my feet are planted on the ground, I feel strong and dependable.
d) Water! That’s why I’m the strongest ninja of all. As the saying goes, you can climb a mountain, but you can never underestimate water.
e) I identify with all the elements of nature. I can harness all of them to my advantage.

a) Boogie-ing all night with my buds! We’ve earned it.

e) Do you think dad will come?

Mostly (a)…
You best identify with Jay, the Ninja of Lightning. He’s not the most confident member of the crew but would like to think he is.
Mostly (b)…
You relate best to Kai, the Ninja of Fire and a temper to match his elemental power. He’s Nya’s brother and the son of a blacksmith.
Mostly (c)…
Either Zane, the Ice Ninja, or Cole, Earth Ninja, is your homeboy. With a mysterious past, Zane is technically a Nindroid – human ninja on the outside but a high-tech robot on the inside. He can breathe underwater, fight, dance and even crack jokes, but does not have a functioning fashion sense. Cole, as the Earth Ninja, is always keeping it real.
Mostly (d)…
You’re Nya, the only girl in the crew. In the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series, you’re an inventor, not a ninja, but it seems that you have been given a greater role to play in the movie.
Mostly (e)…
You could be Lloyd, the Green Ninja and leader of the secret ninja force … OR you could be his dad, Lord Garmadon!

Will Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya be able to unleash their true powers to defeat the evil warlord Garmadon, the Worst Guy Ever, and get home in time for pizza? Watch The LEGO Ninjago Movie to find out.
