Dragons Rising: Is Master Wu Dead?
Master Wu, the ancient mentor of the ninja and the Master of Creation, is missing in Dragons Rising. Following the events of The Merge, he is nowhere to be found. He is shown teaching techniques to Lloyd, however, it is just his visualization from the past. Does this mean Master Wu is dead?
Well, certainly not. There are a lot of theories surfacing on the Internet about his disappearance. One thing that is common among all the theories is that he is not dead. Some viewers took to Reddit to discuss whether Master Wu died during The Merge. In response to the question, one person wrote,
Right away? I don't think so. It would be very jarring if he was killed right from the get go. But I do think, throughout the series, at some point, he will. But if he does, I want him to retire first. Pass the torch to Lloyd and let Master Wu live the rest of his days out in peace. I think that'd be the best way to do it.
They had the perfect chance to kill him in the Wu vs Overlord fight but they didn't so i don't think that hes going to die.
Based on theories, Master Wu isn't dead but lost somewhere in the merged realms.

Similarly, in another Reddit discussion, a user explained,
As much as I would love to get rid of Wu I think it isn't solid evidence. He has been a big part of the history in the lore and they might just want to commemorate him. And Lloyd having his staff also isn't 100% proof. He could've just borrowed it for the scene. Don't get me wrong, I think it's about time for Wu to exit the show but what you are presenting here isn't confirming anything
In conclusion, there's a high chance Master Wu isn't dead, at least for now. However, the given information is based on multiple theories. We promise we will get back to you as soon as we get any updates about Master Wu's whereabouts.
More About Master Wu!
Master Wu is the Master of Creation and the wise, illustrious mentor of the ninja. He is the second child of the First Spinjitzu Master, the younger brother of Garmadon, the brother-in-law of Misako, and the uncle of Lloyd's father.
Wu was raised by his evil-infused older brother, Garmadon, who also learned the ninja arts. For many years, they battled evil as a team before Garmadon became wholly corrupted and was subsequently cast into the Underworld.
Since Master Wu is the son of the First Spinjitzu Master, he has lived for more than 1000 years.

A decade or so later, Wu taught a group of youngsters the techniques of Spinjitzu so they could defend the territory his father had developed. In numerous conflicts with his brother, the Serpentine, and the Overlord, Wu led the ninja.
Wu became a cyborg when the Nindroid crisis started, but after the Digital Overlord was slain, he was purified. Wu joined the Elemental Masters to battle Chen and his Anacondrai Cultists when the ninja traveled to an unknown island to save Zane.
