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.

Background[edit | edit source]

Vitruvius was first seen in a temple guarding the Kragle from Lord Business, but failed and lost his eyesight afterwards. He warns Lord Business of "The Special".

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.

In The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part he accidentally gets knocked aside by MetalBeard. It unknown what happened to him. Description[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Vitruvius is voiced by Morgan Freeman, who also played Lucius Fox in the Batman The Dark Knight film trilogy.
  • Underneath his robes, he is wearing clothes and a headband similar to the Hippie from the Minifigures theme.
  • His cape is specially designed for him.
  • In The LEGO Movie Video Game, his young variant is only playable in the prologue level "The Prophecy", unless the player enters a cheat code.
  • He is a talented piano player, despite being blind. In the movie, he is seen in an Old Western saloon playing "Everything is Awesome" on the piano.
  • Before he was blind, he had a silver band, two thin robes in front of him, a new printed torso with a blue jewel on it and a reddish-brown staff with a blue crystal on it.
  • Vitruvius's staff in his young form was made of LEGO pieces, but his staff in his old form was a chewed lollipop.
  • In the movie, he has a rubber band for a headband and a partially chewed lollipop for a staff. It is notable that the sticks of many lollipops, such as Dum-Dums, can be held by minifigures just like LEGO shafts.
  • 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.
Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.
  • His ghost form uses classic Ghost shroud, but has the staff and headband, as well as his cape and robe underneath. He "flies" by hanging from a string.
    • His ghost probably flies with a string because Finn was playing with him.
  • In The LEGO Movie Video Game, his ghost has normal minifigure legs and no cape. He also flies without a string.
Spoilers end here.
