Talpa sends the Dark Warlord of Cruelty Anubis to eliminate the Ronin Warriors, telling him to target Mia as the Warriors will fight to protect her. The military tries to launch an attack on Talpa's castle to no avail as the Dynasty turns their own weapons against them and obliterates the attacking force. 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. Realizing that the Circle of Power is unbroken and that he cannot allow the Ronins to face him, Talpa sends a tornado of dark energy that picks up the Warriors and scatters them to the most desolate regions on Earth.
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 who they see as weak while a giant castle appears in the sky.
After a thousand years of exile, Talpa, ruler of the Netherworld, returns to claim the Earth as his own. The only thing that can stop him and his minions are five young men and their mystical suits of armor.
