Aku tells fairy tales to children to make himself the hero and undermine the legend of Samurai Jack.
Jack joins a group of gangsters who work for Aku. He also agrees to help steal the heavily protected crystal that can give Aku power over the whole planet. Fortunately Jack has not become a traitor, but has his own plans of how to hand over the swag.
Jack finds himself opposed by The Scotsman, an opponent every bit as skilled as himself.
Called on by a mysterious voice, Jack overcomes many obstacles and booby traps to find who is calling him. Deep in the earth he finds it is a creature made from rock and lava, who immediately challenges Jack to a fight, but why did it call for Jack?
Jack seeks out a race of amphibians that possess a time machine capable of sending him back to his own time.
Aku places a bounty on Jack's head, but is disappointed by the failure of some inept hunters, so he creates an evil spirit-clone version of Jack to finish the samurai off for good.
Samurai Jack hears of a mysterious island which possesses a well that can grant any wish. He arrives at the island and discovers the well is not alone.
Jack searches for the magical jewel the Woolies told him would be able to send him back in time. Locating the last survivor of the race who can reveal its location, Jack learns of how to find the jewel, and meets up with a woman questing for the same jewel. They journey through the desert together, but will they be able to share the jewel if they find it?moreless
