Like their boss, Night Ninja, the Ninjalinos are very fast and agile. They have proven to be very difficult to get a hold of, which often creates frustration among the PJ Masks. Along with their physical ability, the Ninjazouaves use colorful gooey balls known as "Sticky Splats" to pin down their enemies. They will also use other weapons (such as light poles) as battering rams. Also, like their boss as revealed in "PJ Power Up", they have “ninja fingers” which gives them the power to move any object of any size just with their fingers.
The Ninjalinos are very obedient towards Ninjaka's orders. They are able to communicate in the English or French language (depending on the language dub of the show), though, their voices sound muffled and squeaky (only in the French dub) when speaking. They will also follow in Ninjaka's emotions such as the time he nearly cried in "Owlette's Two Wrongs" because his statue was ruined by Owlette.
In "Owlette and the Owletteenies", they finally grew sick of Night Ninja's constant demands and criticism and decided to join Owlette. For that episode they were deemed her "Owletteenies". They eventually became disobedient towards her and went back to Night Ninja's service.
The Ninjalinos are identical to the Ninjazouaves, so nothing was different to their appearance.
