- In the seasons, each of the Ninjas' Spinjitzu dramatically changed, having a more elemental redesign. Wu and Garmadon's tornadoes also changed, matching Lloyd's with the addition of their respective color-schemes, but lacking sparkles. The Spinjitzu animations returned to a less detailed style akin to earlier season in Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu.
- The Ninja have their own individual warming up to it (except the allies of the Resistance):
- As of Sons of Garmadon, whenever Cole uses Spinjitzu while his Earth Punch is active, his Spinjitzu will leave behind a trail of magma.
- Elemental Powers can be used while using Spinjitzu, shown when Kai is able to melt floors and ice, and when Zane froze Ultra Violet.
- Aspheera is the third main villain capable of performing Spinjitzu. She has a bright-purple tornado seen in "Boobytraps and How to Survive Them."
- Its name is a pun on "spin" and "ninjutsu," a martial art that real-life ninja use.
- Spinjitzu is the art of rotation, which adds force and momentum to blows.
- Nuckal and Kruncha briefly used Spinjitzu using the Golden Weapons, and Pixal briefly used Spinjitzu when she was given half of Zane's power source.
