Background[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Chen was a crime lord and the owner of Mr. Chen's Noodle House.

He married the then-current elemental master of amber and the two had a daughter, Skylor Chen. At one point, he was Clouse and Garmadon's sensei and taught them to achieve victory at all costs. Making Garmadon his right-hand man, Chen convinced Garmadon to take Wu's love letter to Misako and pass it off as his own. During the Serpentine Wars, Chen fought alongside Garmadon and Wu, but betrayed them and joined the Serpentine since he was the one who caused Serpentine War. This move was in vain for Chen, however, as Wu and Garmadon managed to defeat the Serpentine. In exchange for his surrender, Chen promised never to leave a secluded island. However, it was on that island that he was able to build his criminal empire and was able to use his goons to open a noodle house in New Ninjago City.[2]

In front of Zane's cell

Shortly after the believed demise of Zane, Chen organized a Tournament of Elements as a cover to steal the powers of the elemental masters needed to perform a spell that would turn him and his followers into Anacondrai. To lure the Ninja into the tournament, he captured Zane, taking his elemental ice powers, then organized a robbery of his own noodle house wherein Eyezor led the ninja to the back alleyway, where a table with fortune cookies containing their invitations was set up.[3]

Early in the morning of the second day after sending the invitation, Chen received word from Clouse, who had taken the ferry to retrieve the elemental masters, that Garmadon had joined them as well. Chen remained confident that he controlled everything and ventured to the dungeons to check up on the captive Master of Ice.[3]

Chen holding the staff of elements

When the elemental masters arrived, Chen welcomed them and explained how the tournament would work. He then sent them to their rooms. After the first match, he journeyed to the underground caverns where he used his staff of elements to take Karlof's metal powers.[1]

Watching Jay fight Cole

The next day, he summoned Ash, Kai, Bolobo, Griffin Turner, Gravis and Neuro to the arena and watched them battle for the jadeblades, eliminating the losers, but forbidding Clouse to use his dark magic to cheat the ninja. After the tournament, Chen was entertained by his kabuki in the main room of his palace, where Clouse informed him that the ninja had been present at the previous night's ceremony. Chen ordered his right hand man to switch up the fights so that Cole would face Jay, thus eliminating one of the Ninja. At the tournament, Chen eagerly watched, but was dismayed when the two ninja made up and only pretended to fight. To combat this, Chen ordered the Anacondrai Crushers to attack, but they were defeated with ease by the ninja. Chen then began enabling all the trap doors so that neither would win, only for Cole to give Jay the Jadeblade, thus sacrificing himself.[4]

Holding treasures

Chen was present at Jacob and Skylor's tournament, wherein the master of sound lost. After the battle, Chen presented the remaining elemental masters with gold and other valuables, but instantly took them away due to Cole and Jay trying to outsmart them. He then ordered that they had also lost their special quarters and were forced to sleep together in the chow house. In the middle of the night, Chen sent Clouse to fetch the contestants for the thunderblade event, hoping that the other elemental masters would prevent Lloyd from winning. During the event, Chen bragged that he held the record at one hundred points, though Lloyd ended up winning and shattering Chen's score. ("Ninja Roll")

With Skylor

The following day, Chen held a banquet after Shade defeated Toxikita, to celebrate the halfway mark of the Tournament. During the event, Clouse informed Chen of the secret alliance the Ninja had made, and advised them to reveal the Staff of Elements, promising it to the winner of the tournament. Later, while Chen was being entertained by his kabuki, Clouse informed him that someone had stolen the page containing the spell to turn them into Anacondrai and he had reason to believe the spy was in their midst. Chen ordered his guards to search the kabuki, but they were interrupted by the Dareth guitar solo being broadcast from the DB X. While the search was happening, Chen discovered that one of the kabuki was none other than Nya, and he ordered his guards to pursue her. Later, Skylor returned and informed him that Cole and Zane were trying to escape. Chen declared that he would break up the ninja once and for all the next day. ("Spy for a Spy")

True to his word, the next day, Chen had the remaining elemental masters taken far above the island from which point they would parachute down to the island. There, whoever found Nya first would be advanced to the final round. Taking over the DB X, he observed the tournament from within it, remarking to Clouse that it was his new favorite toy. Eventually, he met up with Skylor on a frozen pond after she revealed to the master of fire that she was in fact the spy.
