As a young boy Wu lived at a monastery with his father and his brother, Garmadon, who was also his best friend. During one of their duels, Garmadon disarmed Wu's katana and accidentally flung it over the monastery walls. Since their father would be upset about it, Garmadon asked for Wu to go and retrieve the sword. However, Wu refused to get back the sword. Garmadon told Wu, "Never put off for tomorrow, what could be done today," before hopping the wall to get back his brother's sword for him. However, Garmadon to got bitten by The Great Devourer and became infected with its evil. However, it would take years for the evil to consume his body. During those years, Garmadon and Wu banished enemies into the underworld that tried to steal the Golden Weapons and fought the Serpentine. When Wu and Garmadon became teenagers, they both fell in love with Misako. Because of this, Wu had written a letter to her. However, Master Chen, Garmadon's evil sensei, took the note and tricked Garmadon into rewriting it and giving it to Misako. Later, Wu, Garmadon, and the Elemental Masters battled against the Anacondrai Army. Although they lost, they soon found the Sacred Flute, and used it to defeat the army and banish them into the Forgotten Realm. Misako also married Garmadon.
Years later after their father passed away, Garmadon turned into the evil Lord Garmadon and planned to steal his father's Golden Weapons. Wu and found out and battled him. Garmadon won. However, Wu's symbols on his black kimono banished Garmadon into the underworld. After defeating his brother, Sensei Wu hid each of the weapons and had a dragon of the corresponding element guard each one.
He then created a map and gave it to a blacksmith who he was friends with to safe guard for him in case he died before the weapons required collecting.
