So, for Ninjago’s first 3 years, there were only four ‘main’ elements, and therefore, four Golden Weapons that can control them. Fine. But, in later seasons, they added, I don’t know, close to ten new elements (I don’t remember exactly at the moment).
Golden Weapons could theoretically be forged to control these elements too, right? I mean, the made the Time Blades to harness that element.
What I’m basically asking is, why are the Sword of Fire, Scythe of Quakes, Shurikins of Ice, and Nunchucks of Lightning so significant (having a ‘destiny’ of sorts with the Mega Weapon)? Could the same thing have happened with a Staff of Form, Shield of Ember, Daggers of Poison, and Spear of Smoke?
I get that in reality it all just hinges on the writing team sort of wining it on the first few seasons following Rebooted, but is there a canon explanation?
