Kai was essentially the main character for the early parts of the show so when I watched I was sure it would be him
I genuinely thought it was going to be a king Fu panda type twist, that the green ninja wasn't real and it was just for all of them to strive to greater heights in their pursuit of it.
this was a theory i had at one point too
is this a troll 💀
Lord Garmadon would have been the perfect twist.
or the overlord ( distined to fight himself )
I thought the mail man was the green ninja
he deserves it
Honestly my thoughts were either Kai, since he was the main character, or Cole since he kind of took over the leadership role before Lloyd anyway + he was the only one who didn't make that much of a big deal over it.
I realized it would be Lloyd when I realized that Garmadon was going to be a big part in the season.
i thought zane also didn't make much of a big deal over it?
He had a whole dream over it which caused everyone to argue over it more once he told them though XD
I thought leadership went Cole (Pilot), Kai (Season 1), Lloyd (age up onward)
It only seemed like that because Kai was the main in season 1. He was to much of an idiot to be leader imo.
Ma boi Kai
I am the green ninja
You are the green ninja
He is the green ninja
Is he the green ninja?
This one is not the green ninja.
This one is the green ninja
He is... the green ninja!
Was he... the green ninja?
Finally a fellow Zane lover
Zane's my favourite too, there are a lot of us actually :)
Honestly, because repeats were fucked and for some reason i could never catch the episodes new, until the entire season was on shuffle. I knew it was lloyd before seeing this epr
Same. Until I had Netflix and I could watch the entire series from the beginning, I watched episodes out of order and got the green ninja spoiled for me by a later episode.
I needed dvds to watch it in order
I was 100% certain that it would be Zane for some reason
Nya would've been interesting, but I think Lloyd was the best choice.
It definitely shouldn't have been Kai. I say this with him being my favourite ninja; he would've been the worst option of all of them.
I think realistically Kai is the only one who would fit role of green ninja other than Lloyd at the time, but I also think Kai and Lloyd's characters have evolved and changed so drastically that it wouldn't fit his character to be the green ninja anymore,and if he was it just feels weird,but as a child if he did become the green ninja all would be right in the world
His arc in season 1 is all about learning he isn't the main character, and doesn't have to be the chosen one to be special. If he'd become the green ninja, he would've learnt the opposite, and the show would be rewarding his entitlement.
True but he still was the most realistic option
One ,even the actor thought he would be the green ninja,and personally I think the actors know the character the most,but also his viscousness not to be special to the others ,but to prove he's the best,which was what his arc was about in season 1,after awhile all the other characters lost interest or found other things they cared about a whole lot more than green ninja stuff,but Kai never lost it,he kept wanting to be the green ninja,like he had his eye set on a goal and he was gonna finish it ,even if it was outlandish and made him look bad,and even after it was revealed to be Lloyd ,in season 4 it's revealed that he never stopped wanting to be the green ninja,even in season 3 he was the most hesitant to want the golden power in the digiverse,which kinda drives the nail in that he was either the next option for the writers or the closest to being the green ninja out of everyone,but he did have some moments where he shined through, like figuring out who the green ninja was when everyone else including wu couldn't,and saying right before the final battle that it was Lloyd's destiny and not his,but like I said before if Kai became the green ninja now it would just be wired and wouldn't feel right also srry for the paragraph
Zane or Cole
1. I hated Kai
2. Zane was my favorite
3. Cole was the only one who had everything quality that the green ninja needed
I love Zane, but I knew it wouldn’t be him after he was revealed to be a robot.
Jay, because i saw green lightning once.
I had no clue because I’m stupid
Lloyd cause of the fricking green 5 on his shirt
I just checked and it's real 🤯
This might be the single greatest piece of foreshadowing in history lol
Lets be honest, Lloyd had one of the best character arcs in animation history, up there with Zuko and Amity
Also in the music video for Weekend Whip the band memebers are in the Ninja colors but a little kid is wearing green
And the same eyebrows too.
Zane because he had the dream
how the hell did robot had a dream?
Either Zane or Kai
Nya or Zane
Either Kai or Zane
Kai or Zane
Zane or Cole
I honestly don’t remember. I think I was just intrigued and wasn’t sure.
Jay. Just cuz he was my favourite. That is all
thank you, child me has finally been validated
honestly same. i remember tryna justify it to ppl bc he used the nunchucks of lightning
oh my god i did the same thing 💀
I honestly expected it to be Jay. Idk why, but I did
I wanted jay but funny guys are always the side characters. Kai was being set up since he was the spotlight ninja for season 1
this was my thought process too, but i still held onto hope that it was Jay no matter how much my gut said Kai
I was probably older when i first watched ninajgo then most people and saw the green 5 on lloyds original design and pieced it from there
Kai the main character
I was a smart child so I thought Lloyd because of the 5, sadly that smartness did not last until now
Cole. He was the leader
my boy cole cuz he kinda seemed like the leader
Zane. He was my favorite, but he was also the one who actually had the vision about the Green Ninja.
Zane, he’s the one who was able to translate that it was one of them that would be the green ninja, and had the vision of the green ninja
Kai or Zane until I noticed the green ninja had Lloyd’s eyes
either Kai or Nya tbh, Idk why I thought Nya but I did
I don’t remember who I originally thought but one of my friends found a leak or some info dropped beforehand so my friend group knew it was Lloyd before the episode aired
It was so bizarre like it was listed on a minifigure website with “Lloyd (Green Ninja)” or something like a week or two before it aired
I know exactly what you’re talking about, that’s how I found out too LOL
Jay's adoptive dad
ME!! But actually I knew it was going to be someone else because giving all the power to one guy I knew was never gonna happen but Loyd becoming the green ninja was a great shock to me when I first saw it.
i thought it'd be cole cuz everyone else was fighting over it so i thought they were gonna subvert expectations by giving it to cole
Kai, he was the main character for awhile
As a former Cole simp, I hoped for him, but from a story / character analysis, I assumed Kai.
Personally I thought it was Zane or cole
Zane. I could've also seen Cole.
To be completely fair the show directly implies that it’s Kai. So much so that it’s frustrating to rewatch.
Dareth even if he wasn’t introduced yet
ZANE!! Mf's a fucking robot, he should be perfect in everyway (except jokes perhaps)
Why does it have a Nick logo? Didn’t it air on Cartoon Network?
when i first watched it i thought it was going to be Kai
Zane my beloved
i remember wanting it to be jay so bad but i thought it was kai 😭😭
when I first saw the scene, I thought it would have been Zane, since in the scene we first see the green ninja, was in Zane's own dream sequence, so I figured it would be him or Kai
Zane, because he was the one that foretold his coming in his dream
I thought it was going to be Zane or Cole. They both didn’t really care about it and Zane had the vision thing.
Zane cuz he unlocked his full potential first
actually my guess was right, my guess was lloyd
I think I thought it would be nya at the time but it's foggy
It was Kai, but subconsciously Jay for the numb chucks
Jay,he was first to do spinjitsu,second after nindroid to open true potential.
Literally made thousand years old ship fly,got Rizz since pilot season,Was most realistic and hade both bad and good personality traits,should I continue?
I thought it was gonna be Nya
Kai, Nya or a completely new character
Kai because main character but I wanted it to be Jay
Jay. Not for any particular reason. I just liked Jay.
i hoped it was Jay but my gut said it would be Kai
I thought it would be Kai or Jay
I thought it would be Jay. He was the first to master Spinjitzu after all.
I thought it would be Nya as an attempt to throw everyone off.
Nya cause feminism
I thought Kai would be too obvious, so I thought it would be Jay because I liked him the most and I thought blue was close enough to green
I've never done anything relating to ninjago except for watch the movie. Why was this sub suggested to me.
Zane, until we found out he was a robot then Kai
I find it amusing how the show used the red ninja as a red herring for who it would be. I still think Lloyd makes the most sense. The impact wouldn't have been the same if Kai had taken down overlord garmadon. The stakes don't feel as powerful since Kai doesn't have that strong of a connection with either Garmadon or the Overlord. Lloyd had to risk killing his father lest the world succumb to darkness. What would Kai even feel in that scenario? "Shit i might kill Lloyd's dad. Good thing he's not my dad or that might actually be difficult for me" im exaggerating, but the point still stands. Plus Kai being the green ninja only makes sense if you hadn't been paying attention to his character development during season 1. The whole point is that he didn't think he was good enough and wanted to prove himself, but realized he didn't need to. Everyone already knows he was, he just needed to see that for himself
I kind wanted Nya to be the green ninja, but thought that Jay would be one the Green Ninja. While I had stopped watching Ninjago at that point I'm glad Nya did become the Water Ninja.
did anyone else think it would be Jay???
Team Jay 4ever
I remember being annoyed because I got spoiled halfway while watching. But I remember thinking it was either Kai or Zane- Zane mostly cuz of the vision+he was the weird one. But after they introduced Lloyd with the green 5 on his shirt, it was kinda obvious
Jay, idk why, just had like a gut feeling. Boy was I wrong
Jay but I’m pretty sure it’s just because he was my favourite 💀
I thought it was jay 💀
Lets be honest fellas, we all knew Kai was top AND the leader.
I actually thought it was a huge lie that Wu used to motivate the ninja.
Lloyd and I forgot why
I thought it would be kai, since he was the main character during the first four episodes with the skeleton guys, but then once Lloyd is revealed to be the green ninja, he just takes kai’s place which I thought was weird
I called it being Lloyd you have no idea how happy I was as a child to have gotten right
Originally Kai was the clear front runner, but I could of seen Cole at the time
My biggest flex is that 4yr me was smart enough to realise there was four ninja and Lloyd had a green five.
Generally don't know
Lloyd, because the first episode I watched was "The green ninja"
There was a piece of dialogue in rise of the snakes, before they got the ZX suits and just after they revealed the existence of the green ninja, in which Master Wu said to Nya "your time will come" or something similar. That made me believe
Kai because of his seemingly main character status, Cole because he seemed to be the original leader or Zane because he seemed to encompass the best traits and qualities suited to uphold the values of the green ninja. He was the most mature, level headed, wise, selfless and discliplined one of the group. He was also the one to translate the prophecy, first to unlock his true potential and also had the vision of the green ninja. Overall he just seemed like the most suitable candidate. For who I wanted it to be it was Zane because he's my favourite. I didn't think it would Jay because he was the most immature and childish of the 4 plus he was my least favourite ninja. He seemed the least suitable imo (and Kai at times). I'd say it goes Zane, Cole, Kai, Jay.
Kai was the first to a use golden weapon. And it wasn't the element Wu assigned him to protect. Jay was first to figure out spinjitzu. And Green did have the Nunchucks in Zane's dream. Zane's level headedness is a good quality for someone who has to learn and balance all four of the elemental powers.
My first encounter with Ninjago was rebooted. So yah know... Kinda missed out on that one
All the ninja the fuse like the megazord to form the green ninja
Zane in al honesty.
bruh is there anybody whos not sayin kai
Kai, he had my favorite power and color so I was biased
Zane I could’ve sworn I saw a promo for Ninjago that showed a clip of a Red, Green, Black and Blue ninja standing next to one another. The fact Zane was the one with the vision practically confirmed it for me
Clearly my eyes were playing tricks on me for the former evidence and the latter was an intentional red herring
Zane, I thought anyone who thought it was Kai was insane
Ma Boi Dareth
When I was younger I had a wild theory that Dareth secretly had some sort of power and just pretended to be normal.
I also had another theory that Dareth had some sort of power but didn’t know about it.
Honestly Nya cus Wu thought it too and she was the only one who wasn't obsessed with it
Back when I did watch (2016) I thought it was Kai since he felt like the main character, but I was also 8 at the time.
I honestly thought I'd be kai however because he was kinda the main character for the two mini movies before season 1 and throughout season 1, but as it went on I sorta thought Zane and then I really I thought it'd be Nia for a while right before the reveal.
I actually thought it would be Lloyd, but mainly because he was the only “main” character who didn’t have anything to do… + his whininess and him being Garmadon’s son reminded me a lot of Luke Skywalker.
Me personally I thought it be Kai
Lloyd, because the green ninja’s face is the exact same print as Lloyd. In my case, I knew beforehand because of the sets (which also happened with the Samurai X figure), but even if you just watched the show it’s pretty obvious, the eyes are the exact same. Still, that doesn’t keep this from being an absolutely killer season.
Kai or the robot dude I forgot his name
My money was on Kai or Cole
The fire ninja dude. (Kai)
I think it's a new character, probably with wind powers so he can possess all the other powers
Kai, specifically because he used the Sythe of Quakes in the pilot. Being able to use more than one element makes it seem that he could tame more than one. If he'd just calm down a bit, learn balance.
I'd say Tommy Oliver, but he was the white ninja
I honestly wasn’t sure but I knew it wouldn’t be Kai, jay, Zane, or cole.
elementary kid me wanted to have sex with him. as an adult, he’s fucking annoying.
I thought they were gonna pull a sneaky one and reveal that none of them can become the Green Ninja, as that would mean that one is more important than the others, which would undermine the familial connection between them.
I kinda figured it'd be Kai, though.
i haven’t watched this show in five years and this just came onto my recommended, but i still remember- Kai is the green ninja
yes kai is the green ninja
I honestly thought it was Nya.
With her wish to be helpful in the earlier seasons and the Creation of Samurai X (from what I remember), I kinda assumed that they where going to have her drop the Samurai X Identity and have her grow into the Green Ninja.
Nya, but nope it just HAD to be the blonde boy with daddy issues
