The Dragon Ninjas are stunned: the evil dragon O-Gonsho has brought three of the magic Ninja weapons into his possession! Lian, Sui and Pepp must urgently find the fourth weapon before he does or all will be lost. The friends immediately make their way into the forests of Chipanea, where the Dragon of the Earth guards the magic crossbow Yuki whose arrows are capable of causing earthquakes. The three of them manage to acquire the crossbow – but there’s still O-Gonsho to deal with who plans to take Yuki off them again and become invincible once he possesses all four magic Ninja weapons. The Dragon Ninjas must defeat O-Gonsho before that happens. There is only one way to do that: someone will have to fire the crossbow from inside Ei-Nori-Mur to collapse O-Gonsho’s mountain. After a ferocious battle, the evil Tiger Ninjas finally surrender and O-Gonsho retreats into the mountain, which collapses on top of him shortly thereafter. Now all four magic Ninja weapons are safe and once again in the possession of the Dragon Ninjas!
