This section of Spinjitzu includes some or all content from the "Spinjitzu" article from the Ninjago Wiki, a FANDOM project.

  • 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):
    • Lloyd performing windmill arms.
    • Zane does a spinning handstand.
    • Kai does three turns in the air.
    • Nya does a turn and then a back flip.
    • Jay turns only once.
    • Cole hits the ground.
  • 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.
