The only way to slow a Djinn long enough to catch one is with the venom of a Tiger Widow. One drop is strong enough to kill a man or tire a Djinn, so he don't be poofing around.
Soto to the ninja about the Tiger Widows' venom

Tiger Widows are massive spiders of Tiger Widow Island.

Abilities and Powers

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

Extremely massive for a spider, the Tiger Widow was incredibly fast for its size, pursuing the ninja across the jungle in pursuit of Jay. Additionally, it had enhanced endurance, being able to survive a lightning blast from Jay and a large fall into a chasm. It also weave massive webs that can support the weight of a grown man. The Tiger Widow's most infamous asset, however, is its venomーa single drop is potent enough to kill a human, and mere skin contact can induce death within minutes, even for an Elemental Master. Its venom is also perhaps the only true weapon against a Djinn, being potent enough to exhaust one enormously, leaving said Djinn vulnerable to attack. Its venom also apparently inhibits a Djinn's mental functions as well, as, when under the affects of the venom, Nadakhan failed to twist around Jay's wish to his favor.



  • Their lair is a cave with a temple entrance.
  • Tiger Widows are apparently somewhat cowardly.
  • They are similar in size and appearance to Spykors.
  • Due to the skeletons caught in its webs and the presence of a temple at its lair's entrance, it's possible the island was inhabited, but the Tiger Widows killed all of the residents, hence why the island's location is so obscure.
  • It may be possible for Tox, the current Elemental Master of Poison, to survive the venom of the Tiger Widow.[1]
