Bonezai is the Skeleton of Ice.

Bonezai traveled to the Ninjago Caverns, seeking the Shuriken of Ice kept in the Ice Shrine. Sensei Wu sends players to defeat Bonezai and recover the Shurikens of Ice.

Flanked by two Skeleton Raiders, Bonezai battles players at the Ice Shrine. With Maelstrom-infused armor and a reforged pickaxe, Bonezai can use Maelstrom Spinjitzu that causes Maelstrom Poisoning on impact. When smashed, Bonezai drops a Quick Build that assembles a Bouncer to an Ice Lantern, which players must use to access the Ice Shrine and the Shruikens of Ice.

On a hot day, Furious Urufu sends players to smash Bonezai and take his eye bone, which he perceives as a frozen treat.

Before LEGO Universe

Bonezai originates from the LEGO Ninjago line.

Bonezai is an engineer who designed Skulkin vehicles. He is a minion of Lord Garmadon and formerly Lord Samukai, and was sent by his masters to collect the Four Weapons of Spinjitzu. His actual in-story role has been minimal, although Bonezai attempted to steal the Golden Scythe of Quakes but was ambushed by Kai. Appearing as a "Builder", Bonezai also makes a playable appearance in LEGO Battles: Ninjago.


  • Bonezai's name is a play on the word "bone" and Japanese battle cry "banzai", or the small tree, "bonsai".
  • All generic Skulkins of LEGO Universe use Bonezai's facial textures.
  • Unlike the other three named Skeletons in the Ninjago Monastery, the player is never sent to take Bonezai's weapon and purify it.
