Okino pledges his services to the Ninja, though Kai is somewhat skeptical after seeing the many swords left behind by Okino's former masters. However, the other Ninja decide to follow Okino's lead as he takes them into the Forest of Discontent. Unfortunately, the hazards prove tricky even for the Ninja, with Cole losing one of his lives to flying thorns while Nya loses one of hers to the treacherous Swamp-Teeth. When Lloyd reluctantly checks out another potential danger, he finds it safe-only for the group to be ambushed by the Brotherhood of Rats.
The Ninja and Okino successfully drive off most of the rats, taking Ritchie as a prisoner and learning that he was sent by Unagami. Okino is baffled by the encounter, and believes the Ninja are joking when they attempt to tell him that his world is a video game. Ritchie is then "persuaded" to lead the group into a glitch that will allow them to skip ahead in the level, only for the Ninja to be ambushed by Red Visors. Okino assists the Ninja in escaping before Unagami can close the glitch, but is shaken by the newfound knowledge about his reality. However, the Ninja offer to help him through it as friends, an idea that Okino accepts gratefully.
