|“||I liked Emmet before it was cool."||”|
–Vitruvius as a ghost, in The Lego Movie.
|Enemies|| Lord Business|
In the beginning of the film, he guards "the Kragle" from Lord Business, but failed and was blinded by Lord Business' laser. He warns Lord Business of "the Special".
Later, he was hiding in The Old West as a piano player, and soon guided Emmet, Wyldstyle and Batman to Cloud Cuckoo Land, where they met UniKitty and Benny. After the place was destroyed by Bad Cop and his forces, the gang was rescued by MetalBeard and soon operated a plan to infiltrate the Octan Tower.
Later on, Vitruvius was decapitated by Lord Business with a penny. In his last dying words, he tells Emmet the prophecy is made up and dies before he can finish talking. Vitruvius returns as a ghost to tell Emmet, while strapped on a battery, that anything is possible as long as he believes.
Later on, after Emmet saves the universe, the Master Builders, including Ghost Vitruvius, celebrate Emmet's victory and then Ghost Vitruvius says, "I like Emmet before it was cool."
Vitruvius has white eyes and brown skin. He has white, long hair and a beard that is braided near the end. his white robe is open to reveal a tye-dye shirt and jeans. He also sports an orange headband. He is notably taller than the other minifigures as his legs are a brick. His magic staff is a chewed-up lollipop stick with a large, green chunk still on it.
He was one of the only few characters to die.
