Before the Ninja
Before Kai became apprenticed to Sensei Wu as a ninja, he and his sister Nya worked in their family blacksmith shop, Four Weapons, which had previously been owned by their father.
Introduction to Spinjitzu
Once, when Kai and his sister, Nya were working the Four Weapons blacksmith shop, they were approached by Sensei Wu, who showed disdain for the weapons they made, claiming that they would be useless in the art of stealth. He also said that they were fit weapons for a samurai, but useless for a ninja. Kai drove him off, but he then disappeared when Kai turned his back. Moments later, a dark cloud appeared over the village, which local farmers were the first to notice. On the edge of a hill, a large vehicle (the Skull Truck) appeared along with many motorcycles, all with skullkin aboard them, notably General Nuckal, Kruncha, and Samukai. The farmers attempted to attack the skullkins, only to run away at the last second. Then, Kai, wearing hand-crafted samurai armour, helmet, and sword, engaged the skullkin in battle, with Nyajoining in. Kai was nearly killed by Samukai, only to be saved by Sensei Wu, who reappeared just in time. He was not able to save Nya, who was kidnapped under the orders of Lord Garmadon. Sensei then told Kai the history of Ninjago.
After telling Kai the story, Sensei told Kai that his father had a map made by Wu, showing the locations of the hidden Golden Weapons, and also that Garmadon had struck a deal with Samukai, and that Wu was Garmadon's younger brother. Kai at first refused to get involved, until realizing he wouldn't stand a chance against the skullkin on his own.
He then trained in Wu's monastery, and, after completing his training, awaited a final test, but is told he had already learned spinjitzu.
Later that night, Kai was ambushed by three ninjas, and the ensuing battle causes him to be thrown out onto the training grounds. Kai activated the training course and the obstacles disarmed his attackers. Moments later, Sensei Wu stops the fight, revealing that the three are his other students. Sensei then uses spinjitzu to transform their black suits into outfits corresponding with their element. The four are introduced to each other: Cole, the black ninja of earth; Jay, the blue ninja of lightning; Zane, the white ninja of ice and a seer with sixth sense; and Kai, the red ninja of fire. Introductions were cut short as Wu announced the search for the golden weapons had now begun.
Their first destination of the ninja was the Caves of Despair, where the Scythe of Quakes was hidden. Here, Kai raced off in hopes of finding his sister. Instead, he nearly was caught by the skullkin Krazi, who would have raised the alarm, but the other ninja got there in time, and shoved his Bone weapon into his mouth. As the four captured the Scythe, they were attacked by Samukai and a whole legion of skullkin. Jay noticed that the enemies were just like the training course, and after going through the motions Wu taught him, he summoned a tornado of energy corresponding with his element, lightning. In so doing, he performed spinjitzu, and was quickly copied by the others. Samukai and his legion retreated, as they saw the Earth Dragon, guardian of the Scythe appear behind the ninja. In desperation, Kai used the scythe, despite Wu's instruction not to use the weapon's power, as no mortal could handle it. A rift appeared in the cave ceiling, and the ninja managed to escape. Wu became quite angry at Kai for using the weapon's power.
As the ninja were aboard a boat, sailing to reach the desolate frozen planes in which the Shurikens of Ice were to be found, Wu taught them the most powerful move in spinjitzu: the Tornado of Creation.
The boat arrived at it's destination, crashing into the island, and the ninjas entered the frozen plains. The group yet again escape a dragon guarding the weapons, and, as Zane was frozen upon contact with the shurikens, the others used him as a snowboard.
With the shurikens being in their possession, they continued on. At the Floating Ruins, they climbed a giant chain to the Nunchucks of lightning, retrieving them, but being forced to jump off of it to escape the lightning dragon. The four survive this experience because of special inventions made by Jay, backpacks that spawn wings.
The ninja were at such a high altitude when they jumped, that they were able to fly to all the way to the Forest of Tranquility, the location of the Sword of Fire. After a long day's work, everyone fell asleep. Kai was then awoken by none other than Nya. She ran away, and Kai chased her through the forest, eventually entering the Fire Temple.
Nya was then revealed to be an illusion created by Lord Garmadon to lure Kai there. He exploits the fact that Kai had forgotten his sword, and that the real Nya is hanging from chains above a pit of lava. Garmadon tells him the only way to save Nya is to pull the Sword of Fire out of the rock it is stuck in. Kai obtains the sword, cuts Nya free, and was then confronted by solid shadows. Wu arrived, and attempted to take them out, but then the Fire Dragon appeared. Sensei decided to make a sacrifice, and jumped on a rock that was headed down a lava fall so he may bring the sword to the Underworld. Kai tried to ask Sensei if there was another way, and blamed himself for going after Nya alone, but was is too late-Wu was in the Underworld.
The other ninjas then traveled to the Fire temple, where Zane sensed the Sword of Fire was. Kai and Nya then appeared with the Fire Dragon. After the others got the dragons of their respective elements to assist them, they go to the underworld, where they then battle an army of skullkin and giant spiders, using the Tornado of Creation. Kai and the other ninjas then entered Garmadon's throne room where they witnessed Samukai defeat Wu. Samukai then grabbed the Sword of Fire. He planned to destroy Garmadon with the weapons, but soon disintegrates from all of the power streaming into him from all the Golden Weapons, and in his place is created a portal which Garmadon goes through, and escapes the underworld. When he is gone, Sensei Wu informed the ninja that he will return one day. The four ninja then return to Kai and Nya's village, where they are welcomed by Nya and the villagers as heroes.
Rise of the Snakes
After a long period in inactivity following Garmadon's escape, Kai and the other ninja went to investigate a report of his return. They went to Jamonicia village and see Lloyd Garmadon, his son, terrorizing the villagers. After the ninja defeated him and left him to the villagers, Kai found a scroll telling of the coming of the mysterious Green Ninja, the most powerful ninja of all. He asks himself if it is possible that he will become him. To determine, he challenges the other ninja to a fight. After beating Jay, he faced off against Cole, during which his sword nearly burned down the entire monastery. Afterwords, Sensei Wu announced that the the Serpentine, an ancient and dangerous race of snake people are back, and are terrorizing Jamonakai village. The ninja return there, and encounter the Hypnobrai tribe of Serpentine, who have been awakened by Lloyd. Kai's appearance in this battle is limited, and shows that his Spinjitzu is too unstable to control. After the battle, he asks Sensei Wu to teach all of them the secrets of the golden weapons.
Afterwards, he and the other ninjas made fun of Zane for his odd behavior. Zane then discovered Lloyd Garmadon's tree-house, and lead the other ninja their. After Cole, who was hypnotized by Skales of the Hypnobrai, is pitched against the others, Kai refuses to use his sword in fear of destroying the entire place. After Sensei Wu un-entrances him, they return to see the monastery in flames. Kai is the first to turn on Zane. After Zane flies off, Kai and the other ninja take shelter, and then see Zane approaching them. After he explains that he flew off to see his falcon, he leads them to their new home, the ship Destiny's Bounty.
Later, on the ship, Jay's parents, Ed and Edna Walker, come to visit. Jay manages to get them to leave, but promises to visit them at their junkyard the next day. He and the other ninja then go there, only to find the place overrun with members of the Fangpyre tribe, another breed of Serpentine, once again awoken by Lloyd. Kai and the other ninja defeat the Fangpyre, and Nya creates an anti-venom to their poison.
During training a day or so later, Sensei Wu asks the ninja a riddle: "What is the best way to defeat an enemy?" Kai answers "to train", but is incorrect. Later, the ninja discover that Lloyd, with the aid of the Serpentine Pythor P. Chumsworth, have taken over the Boarding School for Bad Boys, from which Lloyd was expelled. The ninja arrive at the school, and rescue the captured students. The ninja corner Pythor and Lloyd on the roof, and Pythor steals Lloyd's map (which shows the locations of the other tribe's tombs), and escapes, leaving Lloyd to the ninja. Later that night, after Lloyd has fallen asleep, Sensei revealed that the answer to his riddle was "To make them your friend".
At Sensei Wu's orders, Lloyd played various tricks on the ninja, one of which mixed up Kai and Zane's uniforms in the laundry, turning Zane's pink. Shortly after this, Nya discovered and revealed the location of the tombs of the Constrictai and Venomari. The ninja split into two teams, Kai and Jay teamed up to find the Venomari Tomb, and Zane teamed up with Cole to find that of the Constrictai. On their mission, Kai and Jay were attacked by Pythor and the Venomari (The Venomari spit venom into his eyes not only making him a bit Waco., but also makes him see what he fears: elves, and gingerbread people), but were saved by Samurai X, who then drugged them with knock-out gas.
To stop the Serpentine tribes uniting, the ninja traveled to Ninjago city, where the Serpentine had gone. However, they were all captured except Zane, who later freed them, and used the Shurikens of Ice to help them escape.
One day, a package arrived for the ninja, containing new ZX suits, which the ninja put on. Nya then told the ninja that the Serpentine had invaded the Mega Monster amusement park. However, by the time they got there, they find the serpentine tied up and helpless. It was then revealed by several onlookers that a samurai captured the snakes. The ninja then decide that whoever finds out the identity of Samurai X first should become the green ninja.
Later, Kai is forced to baby-sit Lloyd. Determined to find out the identity of the samurai, he leaves him at an arcade. Later, back at Destiny's Bounty, Sensei Wu asks where Lloyd is, and Kai realises that he is missing. He and the other ninja are then sent to find him.
They discover his tracks sometime later, and, by following them, find the city of Ouroborous, where Pythor has just taken over the tribes of Serpentine. Naturally, the ninja try to rescue Lloyd, but are captured, and forced to fight Samurai X.
After a long fight, the ninja and the samurai agree to work together to escape. The samurai uses the rockets in her mech-suit to escape, and the ninja grab on, and are flown to safety. However, after they have been dropped off, the mech-suit malfunctions, and falls to the ground. Kai, who was separated from the rest of the group, went to investigate, and discovered that the samurai was none other than Nya. However, Nya swears him to secrecy, asking him not to tell anyone the truth about her.
In the course of a battle against the Treehorns, Zane discovers that he is a robot, and unlocks his full potential, becoming an NRG ninja. The same day, Sensei Wu tells a story of The Great Devourer, a giant evil snake, and how its venom corrupted Lord Garmadon when he was young. Wu then leaves the ninja to find Garmadon. Later Kai discovered his full potential when he saved Lloyd Garmadon instead of going after the fang blade.
The Final Battle
Once taking the golden weapons, Lord Garmadon goes to the Golden Peaks, the birthplace of the golden weapons and combines their power creating a Mega Weapon. The Mega Weapon then gave Garmadon the power to grant him any whish but drains his power every time he uses it. In the episode "Wrong Place, Wrong Time", Lord Garmadon uses the Mega Weapon to go back in time and make it so that Lloyd would never become the green ninja. The ninja later find out about his plan and jump into the portal Garmadon created with his Mega Weapon to stop him. The ninja get back in time and fall through a portal. They find themselves in Ignacia, at the time Wu came to Kai's shop and even before Skulkins attacked the land. They catch old Wu and explained him about the situation. This time, skeletons didn't kidnap Nya and Kai from the past had no will to become a ninja. Wu then leads him and Nya to the monastery. Ninjas decided to dress like skeletons and kidnap Nya so past Kai can get a reason to become the ninja. They did that, and Garmadon took Nya to the Fire Temple. Present Kai reveals himself to his past self, and they work together to defeat Garmadon. They success by destroying the Mega Weapon and Kai, along with other ninjas comes back safely.
The Tournament of Elements
After Zane had sacrificed himself to save every one from The Overlord's and the Ninjdroid's plan, Kai had left the team and has become a masked fighter who competes in an underground Slither Pitt. He competes under the alias the Red Shogun. He fought Kruncha in the ring and won. Lloyd showed and try to convince him to return. He later shows up Chen's Noodles during Lloyd's second attempt at getting the gang back together. While their they to stop a robbery only to find out Zane is alive and is on an island where an elemental tournament is being hosted. When the gang reunite to board the boat he encounters two elemental masters, one who he develops a crush on a girl named Skylor, a mysterious elemental user, and develops a rivalry with Karlof The Elemental Master of Metal, who wears large gauntlets.
After Lloyd is possessed by Morro, who seeks to unleash the Preeminent upon Ninjago, Kai becomes determined to save his friend. This leads him to confront the Master of Wind on several occasions, with Lloyd slowly gaining the strength to fight off Morro's control. After Lloyd is freed, Kai takes part in the final confrontation with the Ghost Warriors of the Cursed Realm, but is the only member of the original four Ninja not to receive a new vehicle from Cyrus Borg. He also welcomes Nya to the team as the Ninja of Water, and her abilities prove invaluable in defeating the Preeminent.
Along with the other Ninja, Kai is framed as a criminal by the evil Djinn Nadakhan and forced to go on the run. He and Nya are later apprehended by Ronin near the Corridor of Elders, and taken to Kryptarium Prison along with their teammates. Upon escaping, they set out to stop Nadakhan, but Kai is the first to fall victim to his trickery and become trapped in the Sword of Souls. These events are later reversed by Jay's third wish, and Kai is among the majority who have no memory of them.
Day of the Departed
On the Day of the Departed, Kai and Nya return to their family blacksmith shop to remember their absent parents after meeting up with their teammates. They are later attacked by Master Chen, Eyezorai, and Zugurai, who have been revived by Sensei Yang with the power of the Yin-Yang Eclipse. The two succeed in defeating their attackers, and upon reuniting with the other Ninja learn about Yang's plan and his trickery of Cole. Going to Cole's aid, they witness his defeat of Yang and subsequent return to human form. The Temple of Airjitzu, freed from its curse, then becomes the Ninja headquarters.
Hands of Time
Following the Day of the Departed, the Ninja encounter new enemies in the form of the Time Twins and their army of Vermillion. Kai is particularly disturbed when he finds that the armor worn by the Vermillion bears his father's blacksmith's seal. He comes to the conclusion that his parents are alive, but fears that they may be traitors after Krux claims they joined him and his brother against the other Elemental Masters. He eventually becomes convinced that this is the case, and tracks down his father and attacks him in the Vermillion camp.
As Ray and Maya explain, however, they were blackmailed into working for Krux, who threatened to harm Kai and Nya if they refused. Having been forced to provide war machines for his army, the pair then reveal that they long ago hid one of the Time Blades sought by Acronix and Krux in Hono Mizu. Kai and Nya forced to retrieve it by forming the Fusion Dragon, which they subsequently use to carry Wu into the past as they pursue the Time Twins and their Iron Doom machine. The three succeed in reversing the Time Twins' alterations to the past and disabling the Iron Doom, but Wu is lost in time along with the villains.
Sons of Garmadon
In "The Mask of Deception", Kai and Zane are battling the Mechanic when they are contacted by P.I.X.A.L. with word that Lloyd is reuniting the Ninja. Coming together as a group after a year spent searching for Wu, the group is forced to contend with a new enemy: the Sons of Garmadon.
Kai becomes trapped in the First Realm with his original three teammates and Wu, the latter of whom has been de-aged to childhood as a result of his time traveling.
March of the Oni
Kai attempts to help Jay with his planned proposal to Nya, but proves to be a poor source of advice. Along with the other Ninja he is forced to contend with the threat of the Oni, as well as being forced into an alliance with Emperor Garmadon. After the Golden Master's armor proves to be an effective repellant to the otherworldly villains, Kai is tasked with melting it down and reforging the Golden Weapons. He and his fellow Ninja later join together with Wu and Garmadon to perform the Tornado of Creation, which defeats the Oni once and for all.
