April 30, 1988 June 26, 1995
As dark storm clouds descends on Toyama, Mia Koji and her grandfather worry that this means the end of the world. A young man named Ryo and his tiger White Blaze mysteriously appears in the street, nearly causing a young boy named Ully to be injured while skateboarding. Mia and her grandfather believe that Ryo is one of the Ronin Warriors and that there is perhaps hope for the world. Mia rushes off to meet Ryo, but he is surrounded by police. Meanwhile, the storm clouds move in and all power cuts out, leaving cars stranded and causing a helicopter to crash. As glass shatters all over the city from a massive lightning strike, everyone but Ryo runs in fear and Ully gets separated from his parents. Ryo calls out for the Dynasty to fight him and a Dynasty soldier shows up and the two battle. Ryo battles the soldier with the aid of White Blaze, which proves difficult, and Ully, who comes across the battle, is nearly killed before Mia saves him. Ryo and White Blaze are defeated and Ryo is about to be killed when another Ronin Warrior, Rowen, protects him. The other Ronin Warriors, Cye, Sage and Kento also arrive to fight. The Warriors summon their full armor and fight the soldier, but don't work as a team and are therefore unable to defeat him. He takes Ully and Mia hostage, trapping them in a television screen where they feel every injury he receives. The soldier beats up Ryo until he calls up his ultimate attack, "Flare Up Now", destroying the soldier and accidentally blasting the building behind him in half. Mia and Ully are set free and the Dark Warlords and Talpa, the leaders of the Dynasty introduce themselves, sure in their victory over the Ronin Warriors, whom they see as weak, while a giant castle appears in the sky.

Anubis finds the Warriors, Mia and Ully hiding in the subway and attacks. The Warriors use their armor to form the Circle of Power to protect Mia and Ully, but without their armors, they are no match for Anubis and he ties them up with his Quake With Fear attack. The Ronins are unable to dissolve the circle and call upon their armors, but the Ancient One appears and uses his staff to dissolve it himself. The Ronins summon their armor and Ryo and Anubis launch their most powerful attacks against each other at the same time. One of Ryo's swords gets knocked from his hand and he passes out, but Anubis is injured too.

White Blaze returns his missing sword, but Anubis knocks him back into the volcano again. However, Ryo's power is increased and he emerges as more than a match for Anubis. Anubis captures Mia and Ully and Ryo is unable to approach them as his armor is hot enough to incinerate them. Anubis casts them into the volcano to force Ryo to get rid of his armor to rescue them then prevents him from re-summoning it and beats him up and tosses him in the volcano again, but Ryo manages to pull Anubis in with him. Both manage to get to safety in the volcano which starts to erupt. Ryo calls upon his armor again and destroys Anubis' weapons as the volcano erupts and knocks Anubis into the eruption, but Anubis survives and is yelled at by Talpa for his failure.

Ully realizes that two suits of armor are two disguised Dynasty soldiers that attack. Ryo, with help from White Blaze and Ully, defeats the soldiers, but Dr. Koji is possessed by a Dynasty spirit and attacks too. Ryo manages to free Dr. Koji, but he has been poisoned by the Dynasty and dies, but not before revealing that the Warriors have been returned to the places where their armor was created. Mia tries to find the answer in his computer while Sekhmet watches nearby, planning to follow them and attack once they find their comrades. However, White Blaze detects the Dark Warlord and attacks him. Ryo notices the fight and joins in, but is unable to defeat Sekhmet. Finally Mia realizes that her grandfather was referring to a poem he used to teach her and finds it on the computer before the university is destroyed. Ully notices that Sekhmet doesn't have six arms like it appears, he's just moving his arms really fast and informs Ryo who uses the information to defeat him.

Ryo discovers that his armor has grown more powerful since he awakened in the volcano and realizes that he grows stronger with each battle. Sekhmet blinds him with his poison, but White Blaze saves him and they escape. Using his swords, Ryo tracks down Sage who is imprisoned in rock while Mia and Ully are captured by Sekhmet and Dynasty soldiers.

He kills all of them, but it allows Ryo's swords to wake Cye. Cye blasts Sekhmet and rescues Ryo before returning to the water to continue the battle. As in the water Cye is immune to his poison, Sekhmet brings them to a bridge nearby and beats up Cye. Ully and White Blaze revive Ryo by dragging him into a fire and he steps in to help Cye.

Mia and Sage travel to Mount Dojo to find Kento, unknowingly followed by Cale. After they are forced to abandon Mia's jeep, Sage heads off on his own and orders Mia to return to the city, but she refuses and follows him. A snowstorm starts and Mia is attacked by a pack of wild wolves, but is saved by Sage. Cale tries to take them out with an avalanche, but they jump out of the way and the wolves are swept away by the avalanche. Knowing it is too dangerous for Mia to leave if Talpa or his Warlords caused that, Sage allows Mia to come with him and they head to a giant rock called The Throne of the Gods. Mia believes that this is what the line of the poem "burning within a throne of rock" meant when it referred to Kento's location. Cale attacks the two and Sage tries to break the rock with his Thunder Bolt Cut, but does no damage to it. Cale thrusts his sword into the rock and it will seek out Kento's heart and kill him before he wakes. Sage and Cale battle, but Sage is unable to defeat him and he and Mia fall over a cliff next a waterfall. The two fall into a cave and as they lay unconscious, the Ancient One appears and tells Sage that he needs to unlock the full power of his armor by achieving concentration of both mind and body then disappears before Sage wakes up. Mia decides to distract Cale while Sage rescues Kento and upon reaching a cliff-top, calls Cale out. He doesn't appear, but she notices the Ancient One and remembers how he dissolved the Circle of Power and gave the Ronins back their armor and saved her and Sage from drowning and wonders why he just doesn't save Kento himself. As he walks away, Mia calls after him and follows, but he disappears as the snow starts up again. Cale catches her and dangles her in a waterfall to draw the meditating Sage out. When that fails, he freezes the waterfall, but Sage emerges and saves Mia. With his full power unlocked, it restores life to the land and he successfully uses the Thunder Bolt Cut on the rock as the sword reaches Kento.

As they drive back to the city, Mia explains the poem to Sage and Kento, explaining that the last verse that will lead them to Rowen is "floating amongst the eyes of the ages, unmoored in the stream of the sky," but she has no idea what this means. At a temple, Ryo, Cye, Ully and White Blaze wait for the others, but Ully is captured by Dais. Ryo and Cye battle him to save Ully and manage to free Ully, but he nearly falls to his death before White Blaze saves him. Dais easily defeats Ryo and Cye and then claims that he holds Rowen captive and tells them to meet him in the city of Sandai to rescue him. Ryo and Cye head off to find Rowen, leaving Ully and White Blaze behind to let the others know what happened. At Sandai, Ryo and Cye find Rowen held captive by Dynasty soldiers. The two armor up and destroy the soldiers and it is revealed that "Rowen" is actually an illusion and that it is really Dais. Dais creates an illusion so that Ryo and Cye each believe that they are fighting Dais, but are really fighting each other. The two use their ultimate attacks on each other, and knock each other out, realizing the truth just after they attack. Dais prepares to finish them, but the others arrive and he decides to do the same to Sage and Kento. Sage sees through the illusion and drops his weapon, but Kento doesn't and beats Sage up. After the truth is revealed, Kento turns on Dais and uses his Iron Rock Crusher to drive him off. While the group recovers from their wounds, Ryo sees a shooting star and realizes that "unmoored in the stream of the sky" means that Rowen is floating in outer space and Mia believes that he's right.

July 2, 1988 July 6, 1995
Now that they know where Rowen is, the Warriors try to figure out how to get to him. Not having a way to do so themselves, they realize that Talpa will try to destroy Rowen himself and they decide to try to find out what that method will be. Mia proposes that two of the Warriors find out Talpa's plan while the other two return to the city. When the Warriors get into an argument about who will go, Mia chooses Cye and Sage herself, but that night, Ryo, Kento and White Blaze sneak off to do the job themselves after telling Ully to tell Mia when she wakes up. Talpa summons the Nether Spirits to deal with Rowen, explaining to the Warlords that the spirits can combine their powers together to create a massive supernatural construct called a Dark Matrix that will be able to destroy anything it's sent against. Talpa plans to send it to destroy Rowen. As Kento and Ryo approach the building where the Dark Matrix is, Talpa sends Dynasty soldiers to distract them. Though they easily defeat them, the Dark Matrix is launched, but the Ancient One intervenes and destroys it. Talpa calls upon the spirits again to form another one while sending Anubis to stop Ryo and Kento. The two battle him, then, knowing they're running out of time, armor up and start climbing the building. However, the energy from the Dark Matrix strikes Anubis and gives him even more power and then while he battles Ryo and Kento, causes their armor to start squeezing them to death. The Dark Matrix starts to launch and Ryo, seeing his only chance to save Rowen, jumps on it to ride it into space, but is absorbed by the matrix.

10 "In the Sea of the Sky"
"Shūketsu! Gonin no Senshi" (集結!5人の戦士) 
July 9, 1988 July 7, 1995
Ryo is alive inside the Dark Matrix, but his armor is absorbing the energy from it and slowly crushing him. Talpa appears to the others and taunts them about the fact that Ryo and Rowen will soon be dead and sends his soldiers to face them. Anubis asks for a fair fight against Ryo, claiming it won't be victory if the Warriors aren't defeated in a fair fight, but Talpa refuses to listen to him and plans to use the power of the Nether Realm to destroy the Warriors and sends Anubis away. Inside the Dark Matrix, as Ryo is slowly crushed, he realizes that if he doesn't do something both he and Rowen will die. Channeling the energy his armor is absorbing, Ryo launches Flare Up Now and destroys the Dark Matrix from within. Seeing this from the ground, the other Warriors despair, but continue fighting. Ryo survives the explosion, but passes out and starts to drift out into space. However, Rowen wakes up and uses his bow to reel Ryo in. Rowen propels them back to Earth which the other Warriors witness and rejoice. Anubis senses it too and heads out to stop Ryo and Rowen while Talpa realizes that another power has awakened inside of Anubis. Rowen doesn't remember what happened and before Ryo can explain, they are attacked by Anubis. Ryo is injured and weakened from the energy ball and fails when he tries Flare Up Now on Anubis who captures him and Rowen with Quake With Fear. However, Anubis hesitates to kill the helpless Ryo with his desire for a fair fight conflicting with his Dynasty morals. Before he can decide, Rowen hits him with Arrow Shockwave. Anubis survives the attack, but his mask and helmet breaks in half, revealing to a shocked Rowen that he's human. Anubis tries to attack Rowen again, but is stopped by Talpa himself as his loyalty seems to be faltering. Talpa teleports Anubis back to his castle.

Talpa has his castle gates closed and the defenses activated. A bank of think fog rolls over Toyama and Mia reveals that it is part of the castle's defenses. The group walks along and comes to a bank of thick black fog that's another part of the defenses and Kento tries to enter with a vehicle, but is attacked by streams of energy and driven out. The energy attacks the rest of the group, but they manage to escape. In the castle, Talpa summons Dais to deal with the Warriors and he convinces Talpa to open the gates and let the Warriors in so he can draw them into a trap, explaining that their armor will be easier to control inside the castle with the hep of the Nether Spirits. Talpa agrees, but warns Dais that he will be very angry if Dais fails to stop the Warriors. The fog is lifted and the group is able to see the four gates to Talpa's castle, but decide to leave Mia and Ully behind as it is too dangerous. Ryo refuses to listen to Ully's pleas to let him come and slaps him, causing Ully to run off. Mia follows him and Ryo sends White Blaze after them to protect them while he and the other Warriors enter the gates, closing them behind them. Dais arrives and opens the gates, summoning the Nether Spirits. Unable to defeat Dais, the Warriors try to summon their armor, but the spirits block their powers and Dais easily defeats them. Mia finds Ully who knows Ryo never meant to hurt him and convinces her that they need to help the Warriors. They notice their friends in trouble and start to go to help them, but the spirits attack them, but the Ancient One's staff appears and drives them away. Dais ties up the Warriors and offers Ryo his life in exchange for serving Talpa, but Ryo refuses so Dais cuts him down to kill him. Before he can, Mia, Ully and White Blaze arrive and Dais tries to attack them, but the Ancient One's staff protects them and drives away the spirits. With the spirits gone, Ryo is able to summon his armor and blasts Dais away with Flare Up Now. The attack also destroys the castle gates. Talpa promises that Ryo will fall and won't be able to defeat him. Ryo apologizes to Ully and thanks him and Mia for saving him. Mia points out that it was the staff that did it and it causes the Warriors to realize that there's someone on their side trying to help them.

Ully rushes off wanting to find his parents and Mia follows, but an army of Dynasty soldiers attack the Warriors. The soldiers also go after Mia and Ully along with possessed cars and it forces the Warriors to split up which Sage realizes is the Dynasty's intention: to use Mia and Ully to split the Warriors up so they're weaker. Sage, Mia and Ully escape the subway only to be confronted by Dynasty soldiers. Sage armors up and takes them out while across the city the other Warriors take out the soldiers attacking them, but they are scattered. A building is brought down forcing Sage, Ully and Mia back into the subway where they are confronted by Cale. He absorbs all the light in the subway and Sage's light power. Sage is unable to unleash his Thunder Bolt Cut for fear of hitting Mia and Ully and Cale captures him with his Black Lightning Flash.

13 "Fate of the Ronin Armor"
"Yoroi Gia no Shōtai" (ヨロイギアの正体) 
July 30, 1988 July 12, 1995
Searching through the subway for the others, Kento and Rowen reunite. Kento is skeptical at first that it is really Rowen, but Rowen makes a joke about how he found Kento by his growling stomach and he seems to be convinced. Meanwhile, Talpa addresses Cale, Dais and Sekhmet and informs them that together the Ronin armors are unbeatable, but now that they're separate, they are vulnerable. He plans to use the Ronins own strengths against them and assigns Dais to the task, though he doesn't tell him the plan. In the subway, Kento is anxious to get out and find the others and suggests blasting out while Rowen cautions that their job is to protect and rebuild and not destroy. Two subway trains come at them, sending them different ways on the track to separate them again. Rowen manages to get out of the way by clinging to the celing, but Kento has to battle several Dynasty soldiers on his train and when it heads for a pile of rock, climbs on top to escape, but is thrown into a field. There he sees images of the Dark Warlords and Talpa speaks to him. Talpa reveals that the field contains the bones of every mortal that fell to the Ronin armor and that the Ronin armors and the Warlord armors have the same origin. He also reveals that the Ronin armors used to be worn by men that used them to conquer and that while the people wearing them grow stronger the more they're used, so too grows the bloodlust. Talpa believes that it will eventually bring the Warriors over to his side and that they will help him conquer everything. The other Warriors attack Kento and he defeats them, but it is revealed to be all just one of Dais' illusions. He and Talpa try to convince Kento to join them, telling him that the armor contains evil and that its bloodthirsty nature will eventually overwhelm him and cause him to turn. Dais and Talpa claim that Kento's armor was always the most blood-thirsty of the group and thus he will be the first to turn. Dais sends an illusion of an army at Kento and while he realizes what it is, he feels the urge to kill. Kento armors up and battles Dais and when he grows angry, the armor seems to take control of him somewhat. After taunting Kento by attacking him in the guise of his friends, Dais causes Kento to hit him with Iron Rock Crusher. The attack shatters the illusion and blasts Dais away, but also causes destruction in the city, attracting Rowen to Kento's position. Talpa speaks to Kento, telling him to look at the destruction he caused and saying he proved that all Kento will cause is destruction and that he will soon join his side. Rowen and Kento reunite, but Kento now has doubts about the nature of his and the other Ronins armor and what will happen. Talpa congratulates Dais and tells him his plan is not over yet and that Anubis will handle the next part. Dais doesn't believe Anubis worthy, but Talpa assures him that Anubis has changed. 
14 "Armor of Life"
"Shuten, Kokoro Naki Tatakai" (シュテン、心なき戦い) 
August 6, 1988 July 13, 1995
As Anubis showed weakness when he battled Ryo and Rowen last, Talpa has the Nether Spirits fortify the evil in his heart. Anubis protests at first, but after the spirits powers take effect, he breaks free of his binds and is sent by Talpa to enact the next phase of his plan. At an amusement park, while Ully heads off with White Blaze to play, Dynasty soldiers attack. Sage battles them and is nearly beaten, but is saved by Ryo and Cye. Together they defeat the Dynasty soldiers in the park and in a subway and decide that following the subway might lead them to Talpa's castle. Rowen and Kento arrive having followed the sounds of battle, but Kento displays doubts about his future when they refer to the soldiers as "Dynasty twerps" wondering if he'll become a "Dynasty twerp" too when his armor turns him evil. Anubis arrives, his eyes glowing red occasionally and proves to be more powerful than ever. The Warriors except for Kento armor up, with Kento's own doubts combined with Anubis being human increasing his fear of what he could become. At the insistence of the others, Kento tries to power up, but fails due to his fears about his armor. Kento explains what happened to the others and his fears that if he uses the armor he will become like the Dark Warlords. As a result, Kento refuses to fight with his armor and without it, the other Warriors are weakened and no match for Anubis. Talpa is pleased as without Kento the Warriors will be easy for Anubis, who the Nether Spirits are keeping in control, to defeat. Anubis proves too powerful for the Warriors and defeats them with his Quake With Fear. The Ancient One appears nearby and tells the Warriors to trust their armor, that it responds to what's in their hearts. Anubis goes to finish Ryo, but Ully and White Blaze try to stop him. Anubis easily throws them aside, injuring them, but Ully's courage causes Kento to summon his armor, saying that Ully taught him what real courage is. Anubis tries to attack again with Quake With Fear, but Kento hits him with Iron Rock Crusher. Not only does Kento's attack knock Anubis out, but it drives the spirits influence from his body. However, it leaves the Warriors wondering what does it mean for them that a human is wearing evil armor. Talpa tries to pull Anubis back to his castle, but the Ancient One intervenes and pulls Anubis to him instead. Talpa is furious while the Warriors realize that the Ancient One has arrived to help them which he confirms. 
15 "The Ancient's Battle"
"Kaosu, Shukumei no Taiketsu" (カオス、宿命の対決) 
August 13, 1988 July 14, 1995
The Ronin Warriors, Ully and Mia meet with the Ancient One in a park. The Ancient One commends the Ronin Warriors for all of the good they have done so far and Mia for helping to bring the Warriors together. The Ancient One confirms that the Ronin and Warlord armors do share the same origin and that they can be bent to either good or evil. According to the Ancient One, Talpa knows that the armors can be used to destroy him and will be working to bend the Warriors armors to evil and Talpa can bend the Ronin armor to his will if goodness isn't in the Ronins hearts and souls. Anubis awakens and the Ancient One stops the Warriors from attacking him so he can talk to him and try to convince him to change sides. By this point, Anubis has seen enough that he understands that Talpa is only using him for his armor and the Ancient One explains that the nine armors were once all one and are formed out of human emotions. Anubis' virtue is Loyalty which means he is loyal to whoever is his master, but the Ancient One points out that Anubis can choose his own master. The Ancient One walks away after telling Anubis to no longer be controlled by Talpa (which he has been for over a thousand years) and to pick his own path and follow it. Realizing Anubis is lost to him, Talpa sends all three Dark Warlords to attack Anubis and retrieve his armor. By the time they arrive, Anubis has come to the conclusion that the Ancient One is right and fights back against them but is easily defeated. However, before the Warlords can take Anubis to Talpa, the Ronin Warriors attack and engage them in battle. The Warriors hold off the Warlords, but Talpa blinds them temporarily with a bolt of energy, allowing the Warlords to escape with Anubis. The Warriors are more determined than ever to attack Talpa's castle and defeat him and the Ancient One agrees to become the bridge to the castle, but worries about the power of the Dark Side within. In the castle, Anubis is brought before Talpa and tries to no avail to convince the other Warlords of the truth and is thrown in the dungeon. The Warlords ask for the power of the Dark Side to make them stronger so they can defeat the Warriors, but Talpa reveals the source is pure evil and demands they prove themselves ready for the power. As the Warriors discuss the upcoming attack on the castle and Ryo's fears about what the Ancient One told them about their armor, the Ancient One summons Talpa and does battle with him. The Ancient One is no match for Talpa and is destroyed, but as his last act he turns himself into a bridge to Talpa's castle. The Warriors hear the commotion and are saddened when they realize the Ancient One's sacrifice, but prepare themselves to make use of it to finally assault Talpa's castle. At the same time, Talpa is aware of what the Ancient One planned and is amused, planning to let the Warriors in, confident in his coming victory.

The Ronin Warriors, leaving behind Mia, Ully and White Blaze who wish them good luck, enter the Ancient One's bridge. Talpa sends the Nether Spirits to destroy the bridge and the Warriors and collect their armor and they nearly succeed, but the spirit of the Ancient One is able to channel the bridge's energy and destroy the spirits. Upon arrival at the castle, the Warriors are attacked by Dynasty soldiers and after fighting for a while, summon their armor and Rowen destroys them with Arrow Shockwave. However, when Ryo tries to use Flare Up Now against the castle, it just rebounds on him. Talpa then sends the Dark Warlords, now with increased power from the Nether Spirits to attack the Warriors. Their attacks easily overpower the Warriors and the Warlords warn them not to go on or face destruction, but the Warriors decide to push on anyways. Entering the castle, they end up separated and Sage is confronted by Cale, Ryo and Cye by Sekhmet and Rowen and Kento by Dais. Cye and Kento go up against Sekhmet and Dais one on one to allow Ryo and Rowen to go confront Talpa and the two meet up and finally confront Talpa face to face and demand answers. Talpa explains that as his Nether World grows bigger he needs the Earth as his world feeds off the anger and hatred in humans. He explains that just with the humans from Toyama he is able to create an unending army of Nether Spirits and Dynasty soldiers to take over the world.

The Ancient One, knowing that with Talpa's armor still intact this is still possible and unable to destroy it, splits the armor into the five Ronin and four Warlord armors to diffuse Talpa's armor's power. The nine armors are thus linked, but according to the Ancient One, not necessarily to Talpa's evil. While all of the armors are made up of the parts of the human spirit, the Ronins are linked to the purest parts of it while the other armors are more easily corruptible and eventually returned to Talpa's side. The Ancient One explains that while the armors can be used for either good or evil, it is the wearer's soul that determines which side that armor is on. Unfortunately, after the Ancient One explains all of this, Ryo is absorbed by Talpa who sends out a blast of energy that causes destruction in the city below. Inside Talpa, Ryo watches as the spirit of the Ancient One apologizes to the Warriors for involving them in the battle against Talpa who appears and tries to make Ryo despair by claiming his friends now hate and feel betrayed by him.

Talpa agrees, but tells Badamon not to tell the Dark Warlords which he agrees with as they may change sides if they realize they are being used. Badamon asks for Lady Kayura's help and gives her a magic dust that will allow her to control Ryo. Ryo and Rowen try to make their way to Talpa's castle undetected, but are found and blocked in and the Dark Warlords and some Dynasty soldiers are sent to confront them. They defeat the soldiers and escape, but are confronted by Lady Kayrua who uses the dust on the Warlords, Ryo, Rowen and White Blaze and forces Ryo to summon the Inferno using the power of Rowen and the Dark Warlords armors with the Nether Spirits and the dust to control him. However, instead of the Inferno being controlled by the Dark Warlords armors, it works in reverse, controlling them and making them attack Lady Kayura. However, they are no match for her and she easily defeats them. She wakes Ryo, but he drives the Nether Spirits and dust's influence from his body and battles Lady Kayura. Ryo uses Rage of Inferno while Lady Kauyra uses Star Sword Scream, but Ryo destroys her sword with his attack as well as the nearby area and she retreats. However, Talpa is pleased as the Inferno Armor holds powers that even he was unaware of. Ryo reunites with Rowen and White Blaze to continue their quest. 
33 "In Search of Secret Treasures"
"Nazo no Hihō o Motomete" (謎の秘宝を求めて) 
January 21, 1989 August 9, 1995
The clash between Ryo with the Inferno Armor and Lady Kayura was so powerful that it creates destruction in the mortal world as well as the Nether World. Ryo, exhausted and in pain from the battle and Rowen rest and discuss how Ryo didn't feel any different after absorbing the power of the Dark Warlords. This leads Rowen to theorize that perhaps they aren't all bad as they protected Ryo briefly from Lady Kayura. While Lady Kayura lost against Ryo, Talpa is still pleased with her as the Armor of Inferno was proven to have the power to destroy the mortal world like Talpa wants. Ully, Mia and Anubis look through Mia's grandfather's data, looking for anything they can use against the Dynasty and Anubis spots a symbol that Talpa uses and becomes determined to find out what it is as it may be important. Mia discovers that the symbol stands for the Jewel of Life, an object capable of destroying Talpa which was hidden by the very first Ancients. After the discovery, Anubis senses something and when investigating, comes under attack from Dynasty soldiers. Anubis fights them and they alert Badamon of Mia's discovery. Badamon orders the soldiers not to let Mia, Ully and Anubis escape with the information and two soldiers lure Anubis away while another tries to kill Mia and Ully. Anubis defeats the soldiers and Mia locates the a map leading to the Jewel of Life which Anubis realizes is near water. Meanwhile, Ryo and Rowen contemplate how the Dark Warlords almost seemed to turn good and worry about their friends. Needing to stop Anubis, Mia and Ully from finding the Jewel, Badamon dispatches a Dynasty warrior named Gash to stop them, explaining that legend says that the Jewel is the heart of the nine armors and beats strong in the heart of the pure and gives strength to the weak and thus is a threat to Talpa and his empire. Mia uncovers the same thing, reading that the Jewel gives the armors their power and figuring out with Anubis that it must be in Jewel Lake. The three head there with Anubis planning to travel to the Nether World afterwards to help the Ronin Warriors, but refusing to allow Ully and Mia to come as it is too dangerous. At Jewel Lake, Anubis parts the water with the Ancient One's staff and is able to use the staff to open the tomb that's revealed at the bottom. In the tomb they find the armors of the Ancients that guard the tomb, murals of the battles between Hariel and evil in the past and the Jewel of Life. When Ully picks up the Jewel, the Ancient One speaks to them telling them that only the pure of heart can use the Jewel as in evil hands it could destroy the world. Gash arrives with Dynasty soldiers and attacks, but the Ancient armors, possessed by the souls of their wearers, destroy the soldiers and when Gash threatens Mia and Ully, Anubis stabs him through the back with the Ancient One's staff, killing him. At the Ancient One's request, Anubis releases the souls in the armors to move on, their job now finished and puts the Jewel around Mia's neck when Ully gives it to him, saying that Ully and Mia are the purest of heart people he knows and they will all go together to save their friends.

January 28, 1989 August 10, 1995
Anubis, Mia and Ully contemplate the power of the Jewel of Life and wonder how it is supposed to defeat Talpa and Mia gives it to Ully to wear. Meanwhile Dynasty soldiers cause havok and destruction in the city, easily repelling all human efforts to stop them. Badamon approaches Talpa with fears about allowing Ryo and Rowen free rein within the castle before a structure the Nether Spirits are building which Badamon calls the Tower of Pain is completed due to the unfathomable power of the Inferno Armor, but Talpa assures him that they won't be free for long as he is drawing them into a trap. At Mia's home, Anubis contemplates the war with the Dynasty and looks for a sign from the Ancient One when it will be time for him to complete his own destiny when suddenly the Ancient One's staff and the Jewel of Life glow, causing snow. Ryo and Rowen continue to make their way through the maze, avoiding Dynasty soldiers and trying to find a way into the castle. They get sucked into a wall while trying to climb it and end up trapped in the dungeon. Upon blasting their way out of the room, they are confronted by Lady Kayura. The two fight her to no avail and she tricks Ryo into launching Flare Up Now at her then dodges, causing him to hit a structure which drains his armor of power. Rowen is unable to stop it and Ryo is completely drained while the effects are seen in the mortal world as Talpa's castle flickering in and out of view, causing Anubis to say that the Dynasty is rising again. While wondering what to do, both the staff and the Jewel of Life glow again and Anubis finally understands what he has to do to help the others. As Ryo is unconscious and completely drained, Rowen holds off Lady Kayura while sending White Blaze to carry Ryo to safety. Rowen battles Lady Kayura but is no match for her, getting blasted so high into the air at one point that he nearly falls to his death before his armor saves him. At the same time, Anubis uses both the Jewel of Life and the Ancient One's staff to carry him, Mia and Ully to Ryo and Rowen to help them out. During his fight with Lady Kayura, Rowen spots White Blaze carry Ryo onto a barge and take off and he lands on the barge to protect them but is defeated. However, as Anubis, Mia and Ully approach, the power of the Jewel of Life causes a water spout that knocks Lady Kayura off the barge and forces her back ashore. Mia, Ully and Anubis land on the barge and reunite with exhausted Ryo and Rowen who are re-energized by the Jewel's power

Off-shore, Ryo, Rowen, Mia, Ully, White Blaze and Anubis are confronted by Lady Kayura and a bunch of Dynasty soldiers and Ryo and Rowen fight them, having no luck against Lady Kayura. Meanwhile, Talpa speaks with Badamon who has prepared altars for the nine armors and has been having his Nether Spirits "purify" the bodies of the Dark Warlords who Talpa only sees as useful tools. Anubis and White Blaze successfully protect Mia and Ully from Dynasty soldiers while Ryo and Rowen battle against more soldiers and Lady Kayura with little luck. Realizing they need the other Ronin Warriors to win, Rowen sacrifices himself to buy them some more time by blasting Lady Kayura into the air and trying to fight her there, but is instead defeated and apparently killed. Ryo prepares to continue the battle with Lady Kayura, but Anubis interrupts and tells Ryo to let him handle it while Ryo goes off to rescue the other Ronin Warriors. Ryo agrees and leaves Anubis to continue the fight. Dynasty soldiers attack Mia and Ully, but the Jewel of Life protects them and kills the soldiers. Knowing that the Jewel is a mystical artifact that poses a threat to the Dynasty and not wanting to risk Mia and Ully uncovering its powers, Badamon suggests they do something about it, but Talpa isn't worried, believing that the Ronins and their allies have no way of using the three mystical artifacts that could spell doom for the Dynasty: the Inferno Armor, the Soul Swords of Fervor and the Jewel. Anubis is able to hold his own against Lady Kayura with the Ancient One's staff protecting him, however, to his surprise, the staff will not strike down Lady Kayura for some reason. Rowen is dropped into a cavern where it is revealed he faked his death and he finds the other Ronin Warriors completely drained of power which has turned them into statues. Rowen uses the strength of his armor's power of Life in the form of his arrows to try to awaken the others before collapsing. Ryo arrives near the other Warriors and is confronted by the Dark Warlords and defeated, however, Ully, Mia and White Blaze arrive and when Ully rushes forward to help, the Jewel protects Ryo and harms the Dark Warlords, driving them off. However, Lady Kayura arrives and like the Staff of the Ancients, the Jewel has no effect on her. As it looks like it is over for Ryo, Rowen and the other Ronin Warriors appear to once again help Ryo fight the Dynasty.

However, the Dark Warlords demand to fight them instead and when Ryo, Cye and Kento charge them, drop them through trap doors to separate them and head off to face them, leaving Sage and Rowen to face Lady Kayura. Ryo, Sage and Cye land in a pit which is filled with water, but Cye manages to find an exit which he blasts open, dropping the three into a chasm. While Ryo and Kento manage to hang onto the side of the chasm, Cye falls in and later Dais and Sekhmet knock Kento and Ryo in. Sage and Rowen battle Lady Kayura, targeting her amulet while trying to protect Ully and Mia at the same time from Dynasty soldiers when the Jewel of Life doesn't seem to be doing anything. Cale confronts Cye in the chasm, using the darkness there to his advantage as Cye can't see where he is while Cale can see him and attack. At the same time, Kento faces Dais who grows to a giant size to fight him which doesn't seem to be an illusion while Ryo faces Sekhmet who traps Ryo in a sea of acidic venom which will slowly eat away at his armor and then his body. Anubis, who is nearby, is confused when the Ancient One's staff glows and remembers how it wouldn't let him harm Lady Kayura and how she disappeared after it didn't. Anubis realizes that it might be a sign that Ryo is in trouble and heads off to help him while Sage and Rowen continue to protect Mia and Ully, but are outnumbered. Just in time, Anubis reaches Ryo and rescues him from the poison with the staff and drives Sekhmet away. As Kento is about to be killed by the giant Dais, Anubis causes Dais disappear using the staff and Ryo is able to convince Kento that Anubis is now on their side and they head off together. They reach Cye in time for Anubis to restore light to the area with the staff which also drives off Cale. The group quickly reunites with the others and Ryo forms the Inferno. With the Inferno, Ryo is able to block Lady Kayura's Star Sword Scream and blasts her with Rage of Inferno, breaking her amulet off her neck. Lady Kayura is left completely confused at where she is and when Ryo goes to finish her off, Anubis stops him, explaining that for some reason the staff wouldn't let him harm her. The Jewel of Life also glows and Badamon and Talpa grow worried as the Ronin Warriors now control the artifact. Talpa pulls the completely confused Lady Kayura back to him as the Ronin Warriors watch.

The Warriors reluctantly accept this, but warn Anubis that they won't hold back on Lady Kayura if they encounter her as she fights with Talpa. Meanwhile, Lady Kayura sits in her room and flashes back on her life which she is able to do as her amulet is cracked. She remembers that she is the last remaining member of the Ancient One's people who has great supernatural powers as a result. Lady Kayura takes her amulet off again and resists the evil, worrying Badamon and Talpa as without Lady Kayura he doesn't have the power of the Ancient One's clan on his side when the shrines he's building for the nine armors are complete, saying that his plan to unite the Dynasty and mortal world under his control is impossible without her help. However, Badamon proposes letting her regain her memories and then having him possess her mind and soul so she will be completely under their control, but they know they need to keep Anubis away for the plan to work so Talpa sends the Dark Warlords to deal with him. The Warriors battle an army of Dynasty soldiers and armor up to deal with them, which they easily do, but are confused by the fact that no stronger enemies appear to fight like Lady Kayura or the Dark Warlords. Badamon goes to Lady Kayura and successfully possesses her to do the Dynasty will while Anubis senses that something has happened to her and realizing that she is the last of the Ancient One's clan, becomes determined to save her like the Ancient One saved him. The Dark Warlords attack and Anubis is forced to fight them briefly until he uses the Ancient One's staff to split the land and send them away. As the Warriors defeat the Dynasty soldiers, Lady Kayura arrives atop a Dynasty Dark Matrix and Sage and Cye's attacks have absolutely no effect against it so they form the Inferno Armor. However, the Inferno has no effect against the Matrix either and it crashes into Ryo and detonates, dispelling the Inferno and knocking the Ronin Warriors out, except for Ryo. As Lady Kayura is about to capture them, Anubis arrives to try to save her from Badamon, but is confronted by the Dark Warlords.

Badamon explains that the nine armors forever link the mortal realm and the Nether World which has always been the Warlords purpose. Mia confirms this, saying that there is an old legend that mentions nine keys which she realizes means the nine armors and warns that the whole world could possibly be destroyed as a result of this. Lady Kayura sends the Warlords up to more barges and battles Anubis whose Quake With Fear has little effect on her.

Mia realizes that the Jewel still has the power to defeat Talpa which is why she wants it so badly and confirming this, she attacks again.

The combination of the attack and the armor drives Badamon from Lady Kayura's body, finally freeing her from the influence of evil and Anubis collapses into a river, dead, but pleased that he has succeeded. Talpa is furious with Badamon for his failure and tells him to prepare to use the remaining armor to open a gateway to the mortal world. However, Badamon warns that if they miss the opportunity caused by the eclipse of the sun in the mortal world, not even the power of the armors will be enough to try again.

Ryo, Kento and Cye reunite and head off to find Talpa while Mia, Ully, White Blaze, Rowen and Sage meet up as well.

Badamon and the Nether Spirits, rejoicing in this, fly through the gateway to the mortal world. Ryo tries Flare Up Now on Talpa, but he just jumps in the river and puts out the flames and climbs a tower. Lady Kayura warns Ryo to be careful as the tower is filled with the essence of pain and is behind the Dynasty's evil power and it could turn Ryo evil like she once was. Talpa transports the tower and himself into the mortal world where its influence brings out the worst in humanity and makes people turn on each other. Everyone travels back to the mortal world to continue the fight and the Ronin Warriors combine their armors upon Ryo once more to form the Inferno Armor and he unleashes a column of flame that destroys Badamon. Mia, Ully and Black Blaze arrive with the Soul Swords and using them, Ryo battles Talpa. Ryo proves no match for Talpa who tries to absorb him, but urged on by the spirit of Anubis, Ryo doesn't give up and instead possesses Talpa, holding him still so the other Warriors have a clear shot at him. Reluctantly as they might kill Ryo and all crying, the Ronin Warriors slash Talpa with their weapons, fatally injuring him. Ully calls out for Ryo to be saved and the Jewel of Life sends out a beam of energy that pulls Ryo safely out of Talpa as he explodes into pieces, finally destroyed while his tower and its influence as well as the Nether Realm disappear. Ryo thanks Ully for saving his life and everyone celebrates by throwing off their helmets, causing their armors to disappear.
