When the Nighloks are revived and begin to attack the mortal realm, Jayden of the Shiba Clan takes arms to fight them as the Red Ranger. After defeating a company of Moogers, Jayden is informed by his mentor, Ji, that he must assemble his team of Samurai Rangers instead of fighting on his own. Meanwhile, on the Sanzu River, the incredibly powerful Master Xandred finally awakens, and upon learning that the Samurai Rangers still exist, becomes enraged and sends the Nighlok Tooya to attack the humans with an army of Moogers. Ji summons four other warriors: Olympic swimmer Kevin, kindergarten teacher Mia, carefree gamer Mike, and pure-hearted country-girl Emily. Upon meeting the four, Jayden gives each one a chance to back out of his crusade, and when all four decline, he gives each one a Samuraizer phone. Jayden, Emily, Kevin, Mia and Mike then take on Tooya and his numerous Moogers. Red Ranger defeats Tooya, but in spite of that, he tells his teammates to remain on their guard. Sure enough, the Nighlok is reborn as his secondary form, a titanic mega monster, so the Samurai Rangers enlarge their Foldingzords to confront and destroy him. After the battle, Ji welcomes Emily, Kevin, Mia and Mike into the Shiba House and all five warriors become full-fledged Power Rangers.

As Antonio heads to the samurai mansion, the others listen to Jayden and Ji talk of young Antonio-- How Jayden gave him the Octozord, how Jayden threatened to quit his training if Ji tried to take back the Octozord, etc.-- Antonio makes an entrance, all fancy, then gets embarrassed when his fish hook rips his pants. Antonio explains that after moving away when he was a kid, he trained himself to be a samurai and built his Samurai-Morpher from a trashed cellphone to communicate with Octozord through text-- because the Zords understand the Rangers who were born into the Samurai heritage. Ji, feeling that Antonio lacks discipline and true samurai training confiscates Antonio's morpher, which he later doesn't react too well to. Jayden agrees with Mentor despite Antonio begs Jayden with memories of childhood friendship. As the Rangers fight the Nighlok Steeleto (who vows to avenge his best friend Vulpes), they're powerless to destroy him. Steeleto retreats when he starts to dry up and the team start to consider bringing Antonio along. Antonio, down at the fishing pier, angrily talks with Octozord about regretting meeting the Rangers. Emily and Mike go to ask him to join and go to the mansion. There, Jayden is convinced to give Antonio back his morpher just in time for the next attack by Steeleto. When the Rangers arrive, Antonio struggling to get into a heroic position, they begin fighting and Steeleto is overpowered when Jayden and Antonio tag-team it. Once Steeleto mega-sizes, Antonio combines the Octozord with the Samurai Megazord and defeats Steeleto. To celebrate, Antonio cooks fish barbecue and everyone appreciates Antonio's membership.

|The rangers start off in a battle in their zords against giant moogers. Later, back at the mansion, the rangers start to talk about a way to stop the nighlok when Jayden points out the Black Box. Jayden doesn't think it's a good idea since no one has ever completed it when Emily says that maybe Antonio could do since her programed the claw zord and even though he has lack of symbol power training and to Jayden's dismay, they agree. Jayden takes The Rangers to the Tengen Gate where they meet the gate's guardian, Daisuke, to hand them the Black Box- a weapon made by the first Red Samurai Ranger centuries ago, but was never finished. Daisuke tells the Rangers a folk tale about a Nighlok king who turned a woman and the man she loved into Nighloks. While Xandred is incapacitated regenerating in the Sanzu River, a Nighlok named Arachnitor tries to overthrow him and tries to force the sealing symbol from Jayden. Octoroo, because of Arachnitor, poisons Jayden as the Rangers sit for tea, trying to get the special sealing symbol from him. While Jayden is poisoned, the other Rangers face off against Arachnitor, but are doing poorly without their leader. While the Rangers are distracted, Deker kidnaps Jayden when Antonio confronts Octoroo, planning on purging the poison in him in a nearby river so that they can finally duel. Before Arachnitor can finish the Rangers off, Xandred drags him back to the Sanzu River for trying to overthrow him. After all the Nighloks disappear, Antonio is left wondering what to do, with Jayden missing and his friends unconscious.|

At the Shiba House, Antonio works on the Black Box. After he completes it, he rushes to where the other Rangers are. The Rangers battle Arachnitor and Antonio finally makes it there. He informs Jayden and the others that he has finally unlocked the Black Box. Jayden uses this new power to access his Super Mode and defeat Arachnitor.

Devastated, Dayu escapes into the human world to fix it. Meanwhile the Rangers end up facing the Nighlok Rhinosnorus who traps Dayu, as well as Mia and Antonio in a dream world. Jayden uses his symbol power to open a portal to the Dream World allowing Kevin and Mike to enter, but severely exhausts himself in the process, preventing himself from tagging along. In the dream world, aside from Bulk and Spike's ridiculous fantasies of being samurai along with Antonio's dream of a fishing champion, Mia learns that Dayu and Deker were both once human and the two humans are previously mentioned in Daisuke's story.

Deker gives him 24 hours before they duel or else his Nighlok side will start attacking innocent people, should Jayden fail to show up. Kevin and the other rangers try to talk Jayden out of fighting Deker alone and instead defeating him as a team. Jayden refuses and tells them he must be the one to duel Deker or Deker will never give up. Just as Jayden prepares to leave the next day, Rhinosnorus attacks once more and Jayden puts Kevin in charge of leading the team while he fights Deker. The Rangers defeat Rhinosnorus while Jayden battles Deker. The battle rages on, with both combatants evenly matched. Eventually Jayden allows Deker to injure him to get close enough to finish Deker off. Deker's sword Uramasa is broken and half of it gets struck into the ground nearby.

Back at the Shiba house, Jayden thanks Kevin for leading the team in his absence as they all celebrate their victory.|

In another dimension of Earth, the RPM Red Ranger Scott uses the Skyrev Megazord to fight Venjix's general Professor Cog in the deserts outside of Corinth. Cog tricks Scott into lowering his guard and then escapes the battle. In a subway within the Samurai Rangers dimension, Professor Cog and his group of Grinders enter the scene. In the city, the Rangers battle Sharkjaw and the Gold Ranger joins the fight but he was late. Professor Cog is surprised to learn that Rangers exist in this dimension too, but dismisses them as mere pests. Sharkjaw retreats after drying up and Octoroo tells him he is no longer needed as General Gut and his army of Moogers are waiting to attack in the human world. Professor Cog enters the Netherworld to meet Master Xandred. Professor Cog wants to use some of the Sanzu River to poison the humans in his dimension in return for the destruction of the Samurai Rangers. Master Xandred agrees to the plan. Back in the subway, the RPM Red Ranger makes his appearance. The Rangers are celebrating their victory with ice-cream when they run into a swarm of Grinders. Their swords prove ineffective against the Grinders until Red RPM Ranger joins the battle and destroys all the grinders. The Rangers bring him to the Shiba House so that he can explain his story. Scott doesn't de-morph because he fears he might not be able to breathe as he is more accustomed to the atmosphere of a protective biosphere from his dimension. Later the Grinders make their attack on Antonio who morphs into action and fights the Grinders. The Gap Sensor alerts the Rangers to battle. Scott gets there early by taking Mentor Ji’s bike and helps out Antonio while the Rangers and Professor Cog enter the fray. Cog uses his hypno-bolts on Jayden and Scott (which will slowly cause them to distrust each other) and he uses his Portal attack to the other Rangers into his dimension. At the docks Cog blasts the Red Rangers into the water and leaves. Jayden tries to help Scott, who gives him the cold shoulder. Jayden is worried about his friends, but Scott tells him that the Rangers will help them. Back at the Sanzu River, the Grinders start collecting the Sanzu River. At the Shiba House, Jayden and RPM Red Ranger meet up with Mentor Ji who pinpoints the whereabouts of Cog, Sergeant Tread and General Gut. Jayden morphs into action and summons a horse while Scott takes the bike again. Both Rangers race to the scene. Scott is bitter that Jayden beat him to the scene and the two Rangers battle each other as Cog watches. After a brief fight the Rangers both appear unscathed much to Professor Cog’s confusion. Mentor Ji had noticed the effect of the hypno-bolts and reversed the poison with symbol power. The Rangers were staging the fight to fool Professor Cog. The Red Rangers work together to fight the villains, powering up to Shark Attack (Scott) and Super Modes (Jayden). During the fight the Rangers return to join the fight (courtesy of Dr. K and the RPM rangers) and defeat Professor Cog and Sergeant Tread. They then turn their attention to the Mooger army. The Rangers summon the war horses and head towards the Mooger army while the Gold Ranger and RPM Red Ranger use a car. The Rangers work together to trim down the army size. Red Ranger faces off against General Gut, who knocks him to the ground. As General Gut is about to finish him off Jayden uses the Shark Disc to defeat the swarm of Moogers and together the Rangers defeat General Gut who grows into his Megamode form. After a brief battle, General Gut reveals his True form which includes a Serpent like monster attached to his body. The Rangers form the Samurai Shark Megazord to finally defeat him. Antonio and Scott watch from afar until Scott asks Antonio to help him fix the damagecar unless they want to walk it back. Back at the Sanzu River, Master Xandred is furious with the failure as Octoroo tries to calm him down. Back at the subway, Scott says goodbye to his new friends before wishing Mike good luck with Emily.
Notes: 1. This television movie has an extended airing time of an hour (with commercials), and was aired out of chronological order. Antonio Garcia is portrayed by Jeremy Birchall (voice only) during this episode as Steven Skyler is absent during filming.
2. In some countries outside the United States this television movie is sometimes aired split into two parts due to the extended airing time.
3. Due to Emily telling Scott that his team said "hi", it's possible that she and the other Samurai rangers met Dr. K and the other RPM rangers.
5. This takes place between "Something Fishy" and "The Rescue" due to Jayden already having the Shark Disc in "The Rescue". This makes sense due to Jayden getting the Shark Disc during the movie.6. Since Sharkjaw's Super Sentai counterpart was destroyed by the SamuraiHaOh (the Samurai Gigazord's Super Sentai counterpart), then Sharkjaw may have been destroyed by the Samurai Gigazord, and that he may have been given another chance by Master Xandred.
