GoNinjas, GoNinjas, Go!
While trying to steal a meteorite fragment for Cy-Kill's reciprocating positronic jammer, Stinger and Stallion bungled the job as they ran across the Robo Rebels. They reported their failure to Cy-Kill, who was furious about his minions' ineffectiveness. He grabbed at a tapestry that got caught in Stinger's door, causing it to rip and reveal a hidden scroll which told about the power of the ninja. Intrigued, Cy-Kill followed up on the scroll and located the Ashi Dojo on Mount Hotaka in Japan. He blackmailed the ninja master into teaching his Renegades the art of ninjitsu by holding his son Taro hostage. Under the sensei's tutelage, Stinger, Stallion, Fly Trap, Water Walk, Spoons, and Decker Decker became Renegade Ninjas.
The ninjas returned to the museum and stole the meteor Cy-Kill needed for his jammer. The Guardians upgraded their passive sensors after that, and the ninjas were detected on board the Command Center when they slipped in to steal an experimental microchip of Scooter's. The formerly awkward and brutish Fly Trap and Decker Decker held their own against Leader-1 and Turbo, but also bragged loud enough about their new training that Leader-1 was able to trace their new skills back to the Ashi Dojo. Leader-1 approached the Sensei respectfully, and was taught moves far beyond what the Renegades learned.
As Cy-Kill prepared to unleash his jammer in Silicon Valley and wipe out humanity's communication network, Leader-1 arrived and dispatched the Renegade Ninjas with his new skills. Scooter, meanwhile, had infiltrated Thruster and rescued Taro. The jammer went off as Leader-1 and the ninjas fought over it, wiping their recent memories and removing their ninja knowledge. Leader-1 drove off Cy-Kill and his goons, and Taro was reunited with his father.
