|~ Captain Soto|
Captain Soto is a recurring antagonist in the TV series LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, serving as a minor antagonist in both Season 2: Legacy of the Green Ninja and Season 4: Tournament of Elements, a supporting character in Season 6: Skybound, a cameo antagonist in both Season 11: Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu and Season 15: Crystalized, and a supporting antagonist in Season 12: Prime Empire.
He was the original captain of the Black Bounty who was later brought back to life, along with his pirate crew, by accident, by Lord Garmadon using the Mega Weapon.
He was voiced by Alan Marriott.
Pirates vs. Ninja
After he was brought back to life, he took over the Black Bounty from Lord Garmadon and used the flying upgrades to terrorize Ninjago City. He is later stopped by the ninja and imprisoned by police.
The return of Nadakhan
He revealed to the ninja, who were now imprisoned as criminals, that he had a history with their pirate enemy Nadakhan the genie. He defeated Nadakhan by using the venom of a tiger widow, so he won't teleport, and locking him inside a lamp. However, when Mechanic entered the dining room, the ninja had to fight Mechanic, and Soto helped the ninja, while trying to give them some tips. Later, the ninja escaped with Soto, and Soto wished them good luck.
Soto was among the past allies Jay invited to replace the captured ninja. He assisted Jay in getting the Djinn Blade and explained how it was possible to free those trapped in it. After Jay made his final wish, the time reversed, meaning that Soto remained in jail and, since the ninja never received help from him, remains their enemy.
- Curiously, Soto appears to be out of prison in the Season 12 episode "Would You Like to Enter Prime Empire?", but in the episode "Level Thirteen", which takes place later, he is in jail before Unagami breaks him out. It's unknown if Soto's earlier appearance was an animation error or if he broke out before Season 12 but was arrested again.
