Chima is the main setting of the Legends of Chima theme. Its landscape is primarily covered in forests, Jungle, mountains and swamps, and is inhabited by twelve species of anthropomorphic animals: Lions, Eagles, Gorillas, Crocodiles, Wolves, Bears, RhinosRavens, Skunks, Foxes, Beavers, and Peacocks. A key feature of Chima is its floating mountain, Mount Cavora, which produces CHI, a mystical and powerful element.


The land of Chima is ringed by a rim of dense, hazardous jungle known as the Outlands. The actual continent of Chima itself is a massive, floating landmass directly above a super-sized environment.


Written Language


Chima has its own written language of characters that sound out words. Most information about this is unknown but it has appeared in several episodes.


  • In Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, Chima is one of the 16 Realms in Ninjago.
    • According to Tommy Andreasen, the First Spinjitzu Master may have brought the Serpentine from Chima.[citation needed] This is mere speculation that hasn't yet been confirmed.
  • Chima is a translation that means 'energy horse', this may be a reference to the Speedorz.
  • In the TV Series, Chima is shown to be much smaller than one would think, The Eagle Spires are visible from the Lion Temple, how or why this is is unknown, though one theory may be that Mount Cavora's sphere of influence is quite small.
    • It was revealed in the Season three finale that Chima is a floating island above a much larger world.
  • Below Chima is a sunken beaver village and ruins of a lion castle.
