The sun shone brightly over a peaceful city, with the citizens doing their own daily thing, like the adults heading off to their job ready to work, teens and young children going to school, those kind of things. Though at a Japanese style house in a secluded area not too far from the city, were 4 teens training outside in the back with practice wooden swords. 2 guys were doing some moves in sync with one another and 2 girls were doing a practice fight with the swords against each other while an older looking man looked on with another guy and girl by his side. The older man began slowly pacing back and forth not once taking his eyes off the 4 training teens. "The life of the samurai must be one of discipline and order, samurai must constantly improve to ready themselves for battle." told the older man, with the 2 guys, one who wore a training uniform marked in green was accidentally hit in the shoulder by his partner that also wore a training uniform except is marked in blue. The guy cringed a bit in pain from the hit "Ow!" the guy who stood by the older man wearing a training uniform marked in red saw this and walked over "Are you ok?" "Of course!" "Get into your opponent's head, use your instincts to sense their next move and feel their attack coming." he then swung the practice sword he had at the guy in blue who quickly dodge the oncoming attacks. The guy marked in green was amazed at his training partner "Wow Kevin that's amazing!" he soon cringed again in pain as he was hit by a practice sword again. "Mike always keep your guard up." advised the guy in the red training uniform, the older man who was now watching this said "Mike let me ask you something…"
Unfortunately once Mike took a step forward towards the older man, he was once again hit in the shoulder by a practice blade "Ow! Hey that's not fair! You distracted me!" the guy in the red uniform gave him a look that Mike understood "Ok I get it, let me try again." he soon dodge an attack by doing a flip only to get hit in the butt by the practice sword. "Now watch this." said the red uniformed guy, he began fighting with Kevin who again kept dodging his attacks but this time his pants fell in the process. The girls saw this and began to laugh while the older man shook his head. Then the girl with blonde hair took notice that something was missing and began looking around "Hey where did Mike go?" they all began to look around all wondering just where did Mike go, but as they looked the girl who had long straight black hair and wore a royal Japanese type kimono began to cough a bit. This caused the guy in the red marked uniform to go over to her side "Nariko are you all right?" she ceased her coughing for a bit "Yes Jayden I'm all right…" the girl with black curly hair looked towards her in concern "Are you sure?" "Yes I'm sure Mia…" the older man gently placed his hand on Nariko's shoulder "Come let us go inside, it's time that you took your medicine and tea Nariko." "Yes Master Ji." "Do you want me to make your tea for you Nariko?" asked the blonde girl "If you don't mind at all Emily…" "Of course not! Anything that'll help make you feel better soon!" Jayden then wrapped his arm around Nariko's shoulders and led her inside the household with the others following.
Meanwhile in another place where no humans can reach, there is a river with an old looking ancient Japanese ship upon the waters. Aboard the ship were evil monsters, one of the monsters who happened to be a female was looking out of the ship and at the waters below them "With the water level this low, we'll never flood Earth." another monster that had a head resembling a squid looked towards the female demon "Ooh, ah, ooh! Hear it down there Dayu if we just frighten those human crybabies, the water will rise and we can sail out of here!" a sinister looking monster who sat upon the floor and being served a drink by another monster said "Then quit flapping your noodles and start scaring some humans! Incase you forgotten what scared looks like take note!" he began choking the monster that was serving him a drink. Then a Tsuchikorobi like monster came aboard the ship "You're in a violent mood today boss!" "Oh Rofer I'd asked you to lend a hand but why not lend us two?" questioned the squid monster "How about I'd lend you two of the finest fists the world has ever seen?" suggested Rofer, Dayu casually leaned against the wall holding her shamisen in one hand "I hope you don't brag like that in front of the samurai rangers." Rofer turned to her and warned the female monster "Better watch what you say if it wasn't for Master Xandred where would you be?" Dayu then threw a blade at Rofer which purposely missed and imbedded itself in the wooden wall. She advanced towards Rofer, a bit angry "It's actually you, you should watch what you say to me! You have no right to talk to me you big fisted, little brain nitwit." "Hey I like my big fists and my brain is uh…" "Ugh nitwit!" the sinister monster that Rofer referred to as Master Xandred threw the monster he happened to be choking "Rargh! That's enough! Both of you stop bickering!" he stood up and began walking towards the ship's window gazing at the river below "The Sanzu River can't rise with you standing here, Rofer you get down to the business to getting those humans to cry me a river." Rofer began walking towards the exit of the ship "That's exactly what I came here to do and I won't let any goody two shoes power rangers stop me!"
Back at the household Jayden and Nariko were sitting together in the living room. The two watched as a little robot lion began walking around on the floor before jumping onto the coffee table and on Nariko's head. She giggled at this while Jayden chuckle a bit, the lion then climbed down and jumped onto Jayden's shoulder, folding into a box. Master Ji then strolled into the room carrying a practice sword "Have the both of you seen Mike." Jayden looked at Nariko who shook her head before turning his attention to Master Ji "No…What's going on?" "No one has seen him since he left practice this morning." "Where did he go?" just as he asked his questioned an alarm went off making Nariko clench her kimono a bit "A Nighlok has appeared in the city…" "Jayden and the others will take care of it right away." ordered Master Ji, Jayden nodded at this and before leaving he light put his hands on Nariko's "Don't worry…I'll be back before you know it." she nodded at his answer to which Jayden took it as his signal to leave. Once leaving the household Master Ji sat by Nariko's side "You know there's no need to worry that much Nariko, Jayden and the others can take care of themselves because they're Power Rangers." "I know…But I just can't help it especially for Jayden since…" Ji soothingly rubbed her back hoping to comfort her "I know my dear, I know."
Not having to wait too long Jayden and the others returned with an injured Mike, whom was treated by Nariko with the help of Mia and Emily. While the girls were bandaging up Mike, Jayden, Kevin and Master Ji were watching them a foot away. "Thank goodness you were there, you prevented that Nighlok from injuring lots of people." said Master Ji to Mike "We came as soon as we heard the news." said Jayden, Mike lightly shrug off Nariko who was finishing up his bandages "I thought I could take him on alone." "That was brave of you but imagine what could've happened." said Kevin, Mike sighed in defeat "I know…" Jayden went over to him "Mike…Being a samurai ranger is the ultimate sacrifice since we're fighting evil you must stay away from your family and friends in order to keep them safe." Mike put on his shirt covering his bandaged body "I realize that now but I at least gotta go check on my friends." they simply just watch Mike leave even though Master Ji tried to at least stop him "Mike…" but the ranger brush pass in order to leave the household. Ji looked back at Jayden who just nodded letting Ji know it's all right.
That night the moon was shining brightly over the household and everyone was asleep in their rooms except for Nariko. She laid in bed staring at the ceiling for quite sometime, realizing that she wouldn't be going to sleep anytime soon caused her to get out of bed and leave her room. Nariko roamed around the hall hoping this would at least make her tired when she noticed the door leading out to the training yard was opened. She made her way towards the door and looked outside to see Jayden there, his back facing her with a practice sword in one hand. "Jayden?" called out Nariko, this cause him to quickly turn around, gripping the sword tightly ready to attack. He automatically relaxed once seeing who it was "Oh Nariko." now realizing what time it was Jayden went over to Nariko gently grabbing her by the shoulders "What are you doing out here? It's late and you're suppose to be in bed." "I couldn't sleep…And what about you?" "I was trying to figure out how to sense the enemy's attack…Come on lets get you inside and back to bed you need your rest." Nariko sighed a bit, nodding Jayden then lead her back inside the household to let them both get rest for tomorrow.
The next day Jayden, Mia, Kevin and Emily left the household to fight Rofer who had appeared again. The four were still having a bit of trouble trying to land an attack on the Nighlok until Mike up and came up with a solution on how to defeat Rofer. His plan worked with the help of Jayden but before the rangers could celebrate Rofer came back as a huge Nighlok. This caused the rangers to bring out their foldingzords and combine them into their Samurai Megazord. With it the rangers defeated Rofer, no trouble at all and cheered at their success. Back at the household they returned safe and sound, they entered the living room where Nariko and Master Ji happened to be waiting at. Jayden patted Mike on the back "Good work Mike." "Yeah you were great!" complimented Kevin "The way you tricked that Nighlok was beyond creative." said Mia, Emily began moving her arms around in a wave like motion "It was so cool how you used those wacky arms against him." Kevin patted Mike's back "Couldn't have done it better myself." Mike watched as Jayden took a seat next to Nariko "Well the truth is…I did trick him but it wasn't enough…Actually it was Jayden who help me defeat him I only anticipated the attack of one of his arms Jayden got the other one, I couldn't have done it without him." Jayden stood up smiling at the four "We can do anything as a team." he then stood in front of them and held out his hand, one by one they put their hand over his and all together they said "Rangers together, samurai forever!"
