As the Iron Master of the Arashikage clan forges his sword, Tiger Claw asks about "the Sundering." Iron Master responds by telling the story of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, recounting the Four Trials they faced as trainees of the Hard Master. The tale is interspersed with brief clips from Spy Troops: The Movie and Valor vs. Venom. As the tale concludes Storm Shadow and his ninjas attack the Joes present.
