“Any Last Wishes?”
    —Ninjini's official catchphrase


Ninjini is a Magic ninja genie, and one of the eight Giants in Skylanders: Giants. She has an alter ego called Scarlet Ninjini.

Character Development

Ninjini used to have a human-like skin color and blonde hair, and wore shorter clothing such as a crop top, frilly skirt and exposed upper arms.

Background

Personality

An eternal optimist, Ninjini spins into battle, convinced she will always succeed come what may.[1]

Biography

Ninjini was the most renowned magical ninja from ancient times, long before the Arkeyans rose to power. But a dark sorceress, who was jealous of Ninjini's skill as a warrior, trapped her within an enchanted bottle to be imprisoned for all of eternity. Time stretched on, yet Ninjini remained steadfast and determined to escape - even mastering the dual sword technique within the solitude of her bottle. Over the years, her strength continued to grow until alas, through sheer force of will, she broke free! From that moment on, Ninjini made it her mission to help those in need as one of the first Skylanders, always carrying that enchanted bottle as a reminder of her own resilience.

Story

History

Spyro, Ninjini and Stink Bomb battling a group of Drows.

As a ninja with command over the Magic Element, Ninjini was a real force to be reckoned with back before the Arkeyans came along. Her skills, power and snazzy hairstyle drove an evil sorceress mad with jealousy, and using dark magic the sorceress trapped Ninjini inside an enchanted bottle. There she remained for years and years, but she didn't waste a single moment. Instead, she spent her time getting more awesome by the day, developing her Magic abilities and learning how to skillfully wield double swords. Eventually she became too powerful to contain, and managed to squeeze her way free of her enchanted prison. She swore then to use her Magic, ninja skill and massive size to protect Skylands from those would do it harm.[2]

The Kaos Trap

Ninjini was helping Spyro and Stink Bomb battle against a raid of Drow in an unknown area of Skylands. When Hugo called upon them to assist Stealth Elf, Pop Fizz and Wash Buckler on a Level 13 threat, Spyro's team was unable to help out as they were tied up with their current situation.

Gameplay

Ninjini is a powerful Giant who can summon her ninja swords out of thin air to fight in close combat, she can create magical orbs to attack from afar, and hide inside her bottle for faster movement, more endurance and homing attacks such as magical rockets and enchanted mist which entrances enemies.

In Skylanders: Battlecast, hiding inside her bottle gives many bonuses to her spells, though she will break free to attack. Her Special Ability is the Genie's Hideout itself, and her signature Gear is the Star Shell Stopper, magical bombs that only activate when she is in the bottle. Ninjini's scrapped seventh ability, is Blast Wish, would attack an enemy and put her back into the bottle without the need of the ability.

Trivia

  • Ninjini is the only Giant who is female.
    • She is also the first female Magic Skylander, as well as the first female non-core Skylander.
  • Ninjini holds her swords for a few seconds after entering the game or using her primary attack, before they disappear with a sparkle effect. They reappear whenever she uses the attack again.
  • Ninjini is the only Giant that doesn't pick up a boulder and pull a chained isle physically, instead she uses telekinesis.
  • Even when Ninjini hides in her bottle, she can still run over small enemies, such as Chompies, Spiderlings, and Trog Pinchers, like the rest of the Giants. In Swap Force, Ninjini can move while inside her bottle faster than being in Giants.
  • Ninjini is voiced by Laura Bailey, who also voices Persephone and is the wife of Travis Willingham who voices Eye-BrawlDoom Stone, and Buzz.
  • Ninjini is the first Skylander to have her catchphrase not ending with an exclamation mark, the second being Déjà Vu.
    • Coincidentally, they are both female Magic Skylanders.
  • Ninjini's Wishbladesplosion attack has the ability to slow time for a short moment. Because of this, she is the only Skylander able to manipulate the flow of time, other than Déjà Vu.
  • Out of all the Giants, Ninjini took the longest to develop.
  • Ninjini, Thumpback, and Crusher are the only Giants to have weapons that are not a part of their bodies.
  • She and Stealth Elf are the only female Skylanders who are ninjas.
  • Ninjini's name is a play on "Ninja" and "djinni"(or "jinn"), the Arabic word for "genie".
  • Ninjini has more syllables on her name than any other giant.
  • Ninjini is similar to Giganta from Justice League Unlimited. Both are female giants who have red haired ponytails.
  • She is the only Skylander to have a Battlecast spell with the same name as an upgrade, Abraca-Stab-Bra.
    • Also in Battlecast, her echo filter is replaced with a reverb.
  • Several aspects of Ninjini were used for the Swashbuckler battle class in Imaginators.
  • Ninjini's italian catchphrase is "Hai Un'Ultimo Desiderio?", which translates and means the same.
  • In Ring of Heroes, Ninjini carries her bottle in her belt rather than her back. Oddly, she also has no attacks that use it, though it appears in one of her skill icons.
  • In Swap Force, when Ninjini is removed from the Portal, she either giggles or says "Goodbye"
