Summary: "We are the vision in your dreams. We do not exist, yet we have been here since the beginning. We are Pai Zhuq, the Order of the Claw. We train only the best, both physically and mentally, swearing out of secrecy, all masters of their skills. Never knowing their true purpose, until now."

At the Pai Zhuq school, six students are finalists, but only three will be chosen. Master Mao has them fight, one against one. Theo and Lily unleash their animals spirits on their opponents and win their match. Third to win his match is Jarrod, but he unleashes his Lion spirit even though he has already won. Jarrod begins picking on a Cub Student, which Master Mao sees this. Another Cub, Casey, stands up for him and unleashes his Tiger roar for the first time and blows Jarrod off his feet. Master Mao stops Jarrod before he escalates further.

Later that evening, Theo, Lily and Casey meet with Master Mao. Master Mao leads the three down into the Forbidden Room. He explains to all three that Jarrod has been dismissed and that Casey will be taking his place. Master Mao then explains what they have been training hard for, "Over ten thousand years ago, there was a great evil named Dai Shi. He believed that animals should rule the planet, and humans were to be erased. Brave warriors channeled their animal spirits, and after a great battle, they were able to capture the Dai Shi inside this box. The Pai Zhuq, the Order of the Claw, was formed to train students in Kung Fu and to serve as protectors if the Dai Shi were ever to escape. You three have been selected to take on that task."

Jarrod, angry about his dismissal, enters the Forbidden Room and attacks Master Mao. Master Mao easily beats Jarrod with only one hand and orders him to leave. But before leaving, Jarrod unleashes his animal spirit on Master Mao. The box is dropped, it opens, and the evil spirit Dai Shi is free. Dai Shi has been waiting centuries to take revenge upon Mao. Dai Shi tells Mao that before he destroys him he will make Mao watch as he destroys his three chosen students. Jarrod exits the room. Dai Shi makes his move. Master Mao tries to stop him but Dai Shi grabs him and defeats him. Dai Shi decides the students aren't worth his time so he leaves without defeating them as well. Mao explains that his time in this form has ended, and the evil that is Dai Shi will return to where he was captured. Mao tells them that they must destroy him, then gives them an address to Ocean Bluff where they will find their new master. Mao's body vanishes. Jarrod tries to escape through the forest, but the evil spirit finds him.

The three arrive at a pizza parlor in Ocean Bluff called "Jungle Karma Pizza". They have no idea who their new master is and can't seem to find him. The owner of the parlor, RJ, welcomes them. Theo wants to continue the search, but Casey and Lily decide they want some pizza.

Dai Shi, now with a new body, summons his Army of Fear, his Rinshi. He gives one Rinshi the power of the Mantis which transforms him red. The Mantis: Power 100 times it's body weight. Dai Shi orders him to lead the army to clear out the city, but has him wait for a moment. Dai Shi calls for Camille, asking where she is. Camille comes walking out of the wall and says she has been in there for over ten thousand years waiting for him. Dai Shi sends the Mantis out into the city with the Rinshi while Camille stays to talk with him.

RJ offers the three to work for him while they wait for their master to show. Theo doesn't like the idea, but Lily convinces him they need the money. They hear screaming outside, the Rinshi are attacking. The Rinshi gather people's fear which makes them, and the Mantis, stronger. The three try to fight off the Rinshi but seem to be to much for them. The Mantis (Red Rinshi) shows his true form, Mantor. Mantor is ready to finish the three, but then, RJ joins the fight and reveals that he is their new master. RJ takes down the Rinshi, then channels his energy and blasts the Mantis out of his true form. The Mantis retreats.

Dai Shi sends the Mantis and the Rinshi back out into the city, but this time with Camille.

Back at the pizza parlor, with no one there serving pizza, RJ's best customer, Fran, decided to do all the work herself. Fran loves pizza so much that she is there everyday. RJ introduces the three to Fran. After Fran leaves, RJ takes them in back upstairs to where they will be living, training, playing, and working. He hands them new uniforms and shows them his state-of-the-art city-wide monitoring system TVs which also has 1,253 cable channels. They see that the city is under attack again, but before the three head on out, RJ gives them their new Solar Morphers to become Power Rangers.

Lily and Theo successfully morph into Rangers, but Casey fails. Yellow and Blue battle the Rinshi and finish them by unleashes the Cheetah and Jaguar. Casey sees that Fran is being attacked by Mantor (Rinshi Beast), gathering all of her fear...
