- “I liked Emmet before it was cool.”
- ―Vitruvius [src]
Vitruvius is a minifigure in The LEGO Movie. He brings together all the Master Builders for a meeting in Cloud Cuckoo Land, in which he tells them that an unstoppable force is coming that could "end the world as we know it". He plans for Emmet to stop this force. In the movie, he is voiced by Morgan Freeman.
Later, he was hiding in The Old West as a piano player, and soon guided Emmet, Wyldstyle and Batman to Cloud Cuckoo Land, where they met Unikitty and Benny. After the land was destroyed by Bad Cop and his forces, the gang was rescued by MetalBeard and soon operated a plan to infiltrate the Octan Tower.
Later on, Vitruvius was decapitated by Lord Business with a penny. In his dying words, he tells Emmet the prophecy was made up and dies before he can finish talking. With Emmet strapped on to a battery, Vitruvius returns as a ghost to tell Emmet that anything is possible as long as he believes.
This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Please do not modify it. An ancient and heroic wizard who prophesizes that a “Special” will defeat Lord Business and become the greatest LEGO Master Builder of all. He tries to teach Emmet that the key to true building is to believe in yourself and follow your own set of instructions inside your head.

- Vitruvius's staff in his young form was made of LEGO pieces, but his staff in his old form was a chewed lollipop.

- Because he wears his robe, he cannot use Dispantsers in The LEGO Movie Video Game.
- Vitruvius's outfit that he wore for the majority of the movie may be his other robes opened.
