A long time ago, there was a valiant swordsman who came to be known simply as "the hero." There was a demon who has caused people suffering. The hero and his companions arrived to challenge the demon to a battle and by combining their powers, the battle was brought swift conclusion. With no one around to cause trouble, the island became a quiet place where everyone could live together in peace. Several years later, the demon is revived. Our present-day protagonist, Dai, lives on a remote island in the southern seas and dreams of becoming a great hero. When he hears about the demon's revival, Dai and his friends take it upon themselves to stop him and the evil force that revived him. Along the way, Dai discovers the identity of "the hero," the truth behind the evil force who revived the demon, and Dai's own hidden powers that surface in times of peril.
Young Dai lives on Dermline Island, where he dreams of being a Hero. One day, a Hero and his companions come to the island. Dai is excited at first, but their true intent is to steal his best friend, Gomechan, the mythical Golden Metal Slime.
Dai must take Leona to the Earth Cave for a ritual. At first, Dai dislikes Leona, but they slowly come to understand each other. Suddenly, a giant Evil Scorpion attacks. Dai defeats it, but Leona is poisoned. As Dai’s wishes to save her...
A dark power affects Dai’s monster friends, driving them berserk. Brass tries to get Dai to leave. As they argue, a Hero trainer arrives to inform Dai that the Dark Lord has returned. To save those he cares about, Dai undergoes Hero training.
Avan turned into a dragon and attacks Dai. Dai fights back to no avail. To defeat Avan’s flames requires Wave Slash. As Dai clears his objective, someone enters the island. Who should appear before Avan but the worst possible being...!
Avan is overpowered by Hadlar, who is now stronger than ever. To protect his students and the world, Avan gathers the last of his strength and faces Hadlar. Dai can do nothing but watch. Finally, the showdown between Avan and Hadlar is concluded.
Thanks to Maam’s help, Dai goes on the offensive against Crocodine. Popp joins in and the battle intensifies. Seeing Dai and Popp fight, Maam remembers Avan’s words to her when she was young and comes to a decision.
Dai and company arrive late at night to the castle town of Romos. The next morning, Crocodine attacks with the Furfang Legion. In Romos Castle, Dai faces Crocodine. Crocodine decides to use the weapon that Zaboera gave him.
Dai is heavily wounded by Crocodine’s Beast King Anguish Blast. Maam tries to save Dai, but is bound by a Heyedra. Masopho, the Mage from the fake Hero’s party shows this to Popp, who remains paralyzed by fear. Masopho then speaks of his past...
Having won the battle with Crocodine, Dai and company head to Papnica Kingdom, which is under attack by the Undead Legion of the Dark Army. Upon arrival, Dai sees an unbelievable sight. Meanwhile, Hadlar summons all Legion Commanders, but...
Dai’s Avan Strash had no effect on Hyunckel. Hyunckel dons his “Dark Armour Blade” to face Dai and his companions. Just why does Hyunckel hate Avan so much? Hyunckel reveals his past with Avan to answer Maam’s question.
Thanks to Crocodine, Dai and Popp managed to escape. Popp says to Dai that if they don’t defeat Hyunckel, they won’t be able save Maam or Leona. Morning comes. Popp has come up with a plan to defeat Hyunckel and suggests the use of a certain spell.
Hyunckel withstands the Zapple spell. His spell thwarted, Dai falls prey to Hyunckel’s Bloody Scryde. At that moment, Maam appears and hands a Soul Shell found in a hidden room to Hyunckel. It contains a shocking truth about Hyunckel’s past.
After their fierce battle against Hyunckel, Dai and friends set out to find Leona. They launch signal flares and are met by Amy of the Papnica Troika, who takes them to where Leona is hiding, but Blizzblaze General Flazzard reaches her first...!
Dai faces off with Flazzard. His Magic Sword is effective, but Flazzard fires off the rocks in his body in both an attack and a signal to activate the Blizzblaze Curse Field. The surrounding area is encased in a field, and Dai’s group is weakened.
Matoriv is a Grand Sorcerer living in a cave. At first, he’s resistant to helping, but upon learning that Dai is Avan’s last student, he agrees to help save Leona. Meanwhile, Hadlar’s Dark Army prepares a scheme.
Dai and Baduck reach the Dark Flame Spire to find Zaboera, Mystvearn, and their Legion monsters waiting for them. Waiting for Popp and Maam at the Dark Ice Spire is Hadlar. Dai and his friends are in danger. Just then, an unlikely savior appears.
Popp and Maam are shocked by the appearance of Hyunckel. It turns out he was saved by Crocodine. Having come to help the Disciples of Avan, Hyunckel sends Popp and Maam off to Valge Tower and faces off with Hadlar.
Dai, Popp, and Maam reach Valge Tower where they are stopped by Flazzard. Realizing he is at a disadvantage, Flazzard shatters himself into bullets of rocks and launches himself as projectiles. Just then, the words of Avan flash through Dai’s mind!
With his core destroyed by Dai’s Air Slash, Flazzard splits his body. Mystvearn appears and gives Flazzard the Shadow Legion’s ultimate armour. Flazzard attacks Dai. But having completed his Avan Style Sword Technique, Dai remains unfazed...!

Baran summons the Dragon Masters, three powerful Dragon Riders, and heads to Teran Kingdom to reclaim Dai. Leona and the others shelter Dai in a prison cell. Detecting Baran and the Dragon Masters, the group is at a loss. Just then, Popp acts.
Popp faces the Dragon Masters alone and falls into peril. Hyunckel arrives to save him. Popp and Hyunckel defeat Galdandy and Borahorn. Popp loses consciousness and Hyunckel faces Larhart. But Larhart is far more powerful than Galdandy or Borahorn.
