[OPENING SCENE: a DIGIMON watching a screen. On the screen is an image of the people in Tokyo, watching the fight with VenomMyotismon.]

Digimon: *laugh* Those two-bit players are frozen with stage fright! Hopelessly waiting for the moment they'll be saved. And yet, there's an unseen twist in the plot.

[a large snake-like DIGIMON comes out of the water]

Digimon: I saw we cut to the punch line and go straight for the action!

[another puppet-like DIGIMON stands up from the shadows]

Digimon 3: Oh, please. That would be boring. I want to play this drama to the hilt! Let's pull out all the stocks and give them what they payed for!

Digimon 1: I'm in complete agreement. A quick victory would be a let-down. The DigiDestined will be on Spiral Mountain soon. We muse rehearse before they get here. It will be the final performance! MetalSeadramon!

[the snake DIGIMON splashes around]

Digimon 1: Puppetmon!

[the puppet DIGIMON flies up]

Digimon 1: MachineDramon! 

[a large robot DIGIMON comes forward]

Digimon 1: I present to you the downfall of the DigiDestined!

[cut to the kids falling down a hole, back to the DIGITAL WORLD]

All: Ah!

Tai: Ugh...well, it looks like we're back!

Mimi: Back where? In the Digital World?

Izzy: That's affirmative!

TK: It's dark.

Matt: Yeah, it's kinda weird.

Sora: Hey, look up there!

[SORA points to the sky, where the kids are able to see some continents of their own world]

All: Ah!

Tai: That's weird.

Matt: Is that earth?

Izzy: It's merely speculation, but it seems to be a reasonable facsimile. We see earth from here like we saw the Digital World from earth!

Joe: Hm? Gomamon, where are you?

[GOMAMON pops his head out of a bag]

Gomamon: Joe, I'm been snoozing over here!

Joe: Huh? Oh, we'll just save the world without you, then!

[the ground starts to shake, and breaks apart. JOE starts to fall off a cliff, but catches himself]

Gomamon: Joe!

Joe: I didn't need this.

[there's a rustling in the bushes]

Koromon: Koromon Digivolve to...Agumon!

Tsunomon: Tsunomon Digivolve to...Gabumon!

Motimon: Motimon, Digivolve to...Tentomon!

Tokomon: Tokomon, Digivolve to...Patamon!

Yokomon: Yokomon, Digivolve to...Biyomon!

Palmon: Oof!

[PALMON falls down]

Kari: Hold on!

[all the DIGIMON stop]

Gabumon: Huh?

Kari: Come out! You're among friends! We won't hurt you. Don't be afraid!

[a small pink DIGIMON comes out of the grass]

Digimon: Ugh...

Palmon: Oh my goodness! It's Chuumon!

Mimi: He looks terrible! What he needs is a complete makeover!

Chuumon: Mimi? Palmon?

Mimi: Something bad happened. Sukamon and Chuumon used to be inseparable!

Chuumon: Mimi...I'm so glad you came back to save us. Uhh..

Joe: Would somebody mind helping me?

[GOMAMON runs over to JOE, who is hanging from the cliff]

Gomamon: Whoops! I forgot all about you! Oh...

Joe: You forgot? I'm hanging here by my elbows, and you're off in la-la land!

Gomamon: Gee...I wonder what it's like to have elbows...

Tai: Joe? Figures!

Matt: Huh?

Tai: Quit fooling around!

Joe: Ah! Just help me, will ya?

Matt: What's happening? Everything's gone wakko!

[The earth around them is torn up, and flying in all directions]

[Later on...]

Tentomon: Are you trying to get a hold of Gennai?

Izzy: Well, I'm not playing Solitaire!

Palmon: Chuumon's a mess! I wonder what happened to him.

Biyomon: Whatever it was, it wasn't very pretty!

Sora: The poor thing.

Chuumon: Oh...

Mimi: Chuumon!

Chuumon: Mimi! I wasn't dreaming. It's really you, after all!

Mimi: Poor thing. Why don't you tell Mimi all about it!

Chuumon: Oh...

Palmon: What happened to your friend Sukamon?

Chuumon: I...I...I'm afraid I lost him! *cry* 

[Flashback to SUKAMON and CHUUMON]

Chuumon: After you guys left File Island, Sukamon and I went on with life as usual. Eating, eating, and more eating! When suddenly...

Sukamon & Chuumon: Ah!

Sukamon: Ah!

[SUKAMON falls down a cliff]

Chuumon: *cry* Sukamon! Ah! Sukamon!

[End flashback]

Chuumon: I never saw him again. An evil powerful force took over the land, causing all sorts of bad things to happen! It rebuilt the Digital World so it would be easier to conquer! I've been
hiding ever since...Ugh...

Tai: You mean the Digital World has completely changed from what it was? How's it different?

Chuumon: Ah! Everything's been discombobulated and taken apart! The Digital World's been
relocated was up there! It's called Spiral Mountain.

All: Ah!

Chuumon: There's nothing left here of the old Digital World but some ruins!

Matt: So, you're saying it's all up there, huh?

Joe: Colour me cynical, but nothing surprises me about this place.

Tai: Where are all the other Digimon? Are they up there, too? Where's Leomon?

Chuumon: I don't know! But what I've been told, they'll plow through anything that tries to get in their way!

Sora: Who will?

Chuumon: Who? The Dark Masters!

Tai: Well, they couldn't be too much tougher than anybody we've wrestled with before!

Chuumon: Ah! No way! They'll beat the pants right off of you!

Tai: We got rid of Myotismon, so we can get rid of them, too!

Mimi: Don't worry about it! As long as the eight of us are together, we'll keep those big bullies away from you!

[a DIGIMON is heard laughing from far away]

All: Ah!

[METALSEADRAMON is circling the air]

MetalSeadramon: I've been waiting for you, DigiDestined!

Chuumon: Ah! It's MetalSeadramon!


Chuumon: This guy has one real hard nose! And I mean hard nose! Take my advice: This is one train you would rather miss!

[END D.A.]

MetalSeadramon: *laugh*

All: Ah! 

Matt: Okay, if that's the way you want it, we can play rough, too!

Tai: Let's go, Agumon!

Agumon: Gotcha! Agumon, Digivolve to...Greymon!

Matt: Now it's our turn!

Gabumon: Gabumon, Digivolve to...Garurumon!

Biyomon: Biyomon, Digivolve to...Birdramon!

Tentomon: Tentomon, Digivolve to...Kabuterimon!

Palmon: Hm!

Gomamon: Gomamon, Digivolve to...Ikkakumon!

Palmon: Palmon, Digivolve to...Togemon!

Patamon: Patamon, Digivolve to...Angemon!

Salamon: Salamon, Digivolve to...Gatomon!

MetalSeadramon: *laugh*

Greymon: Nova Blast! 

[GREYMON is knocked down]

Greymon: Ah!

Birdramon: Meteor Wing!

Garurumon: Howling Blaster!

[BIRDRAMON and GARURUMON are knocked down]

Birdramon & Garurumon: Ah!

Kabuterimon: Electro Shocker!

Ikkakumon: Harpoon Torpedo!

Togemon: How about some Needle Spray, huh?

[KABUTERIMON, TOGEMON, and IKKAKUMON are knocked down]

Kabuterimon & Ikkakumon: Ah!

Togemon: Ah!

Angemon: Hand of Fate!

Gatomon: Lighting Paw!

[ANGEMON and GATOMON are knocked down by METALSEADRAMON]

Angemon: Ugh!

Gatomon: Ugh!

TK: Angemon!

Kari: Oh, no!

MetalSeadramon: You should know your powers are strong enough!

Matt: How come he's beating us so bad?

Izzy: Ah! It's because he's a Mega Digimon, and ever eight Champions can't overtake one Mega!
He's stronger than all of us combined!

Tai: Then we're lost without more power!

Joe: Ever notice that we're always at the wrong place at just the wrong time?

MetalSeadramon: Now it's time to take one nasty ride!

[METALSEADRAMON sends his attack to the kids, and the ground below them cracks]

All: Ah!

[the kids fall]

All: Ugh...

Angemon: TK, are you alright?

TK: I thought I was broken, but I guess I must be alright!

Angemon: *laugh* Huh?

TK: What's the matter?

Angemon: Wait. I'll be back.

[Yellow shots come out of the mist, and his ANGEMON]

Angemon: Ah! Ahh!

TK: Angemon!

Angemon: Ah!

[ANGEMON devolves]

Patamon: Ah! Woah!

TK: On, no! Poor Patamon!

[MACHINEDRAMON comes out of the mist]

Izzy, Matt, and Tai: Ah!

Izzy: Be prepared for another Mega Digimon. He's called MachineDramon. This metallic mutant
can blow out a Digimon just like a birthday candle!

Greymon: Greymon, Digivolve to...MetalGreymon!

Garurumon: Garurumon, Digivolve to...WereGarurumon!

Kabuterimon: Kabuterimon, Digivolve to...MegaKabuterimon!

Birdramon: Birdramon, Digivolve to...Garudamon!

Togemon: Togemon, Digivolve to...Lillymon!

Ikkakumon: Ikkakumon, Digivolve to...Zudomon!

Gatomon: Gatomon, Digivolve to...Angewomon!

Tai: Come on, guys! Show them what you're made of!

Kari: Hope they're made of something strong enough!

[the DIGIMON lunge at MACHINEDRAMON, but are thrown back]

Kari: Angewomon!

[the ground breaks, and the kids fall once more]

Izzy: We stopped.

Matt: I can't complain. It's sure a lot better than falling on our heads!

[GARUDAMON and WEREGARURUMON begin to fight]

Matt: Hey, can't you two take a break for one minute?

Sora: Yeah, come on! We're all supposed to be on the same side!

Garudamon: We can't control it!

WereGarurumon: That's right! Our bodies are doing this all by themselves!

Sora: All by themselves, uh? 

[SORA's arms move themselves to a box shape]

Sora: Ooh!

[all the DIGIDESTINED start moving]

Joe: I've always hated any form of exercise! What's happening to me?

[IZZY sees strings attaches to his fingers]

Izzy: We're become string puppets! And someone is operating us!

Puppetmon: *laugh* Aren't we the little smartie-pants!

Izzy: Who are you?

Puppetmon: You wanna know? How 'bout if I help you look up my profile on your special
computer! Watch!

[PUPPETMON moves his fingers, making IZZY type away on the LAPTOP]

Izzy: Huh? He's also a Mega Digimon!


Izzy: Puppetmon has a controlling personality and a rotten temper. Get him mad and he'll bop
you with his hammer!


Mimi: If you have to hit to hit anybody, you should bop yourself for how you look in that stupid

Lillymon: Mimi!

Puppetmon: I'm going to have to let you go for now. 

All: Ah!

Puppetmon: I promise to destroy you! Puppet Pummel!

[the attacks hit, causing the Digimon to devolve to rookie and in-training]

[the kids fall down once again]

All: Ah!

[They wake up in a stadium]

[There is a clown riding around on a rubber ball]

Clown: Well, hello there, boys and girls! Welcome! Today, I'm going to tell you an amazing

[the CLOWN pulls out some story boards]

Clown: Once upon a time, there were eight DigiDestined. They went with their Digimon
companions to try and save the world. The children and their Digimon discovered that in order
for them to do it, they had to climb up to the top of Spiral Mountain. But to their dismay, the
Dark Masters defeated them. So sad.

TK: Hey, clowny! Nobody's laughing at your story!

Clown: Oh, dear. I'm so sorry. Did I happen to mention the story is true? I wanted to give you a
preview of the plot.

[the CLOWN turns into PIEDMON]

Piedmon: *laugh*

Chuumon: Ah! It's Piedmon!


Chuumon: He's a Mega Phantom Digimon of the worst kind! You never know what he's going to
look like next!

[END D.A.]

Tai: Well, I think your plot needs a few re-writes! Agumon!

Matt: Gabumon! You can do it!

Agumon: Agumon, Warp Digivolve to...WarGreymon!

Gabumon: Gabumon, Digivolve to...MetalGarurumon!

Tai: Yeah! Let him know we mean business, WarGreymon!

Matt: MetalGarurumon! Teach that joker a lesson he'll never forget!

WarGreymon: Nova Force!

MetalGarurumon: Ice Wolf Claw!

[PIEDMON dodges both attacks]

Piedmon: Trump Sword!

[WARGREYMON and METALGARURUMON are hit with the attack and devolve]

Agumon & Gabumon: Uh...

Joe: This is bad news!

Sora: Even two Mega Digimon couldn't put him down! That's *really* bad news!

Mimi: Not to mention he's a fashion disaster!

Piedmon: Your two Megas are newly Digivolved. How could you expect them o compete against
an experienced - and, might I boast, superior - Digimon?

Agumon: Tai, sorry.

Piedmon: Allow me to introduce my fellow actors in this captivating and charming comedy of
errors. MetalSeadramon! MachineDramon! Puppetmon! And myself, Piedmon! *laugh*

Puppetmon: You thought you were through with me, but I want to have more fun!

Piedmon: We would like to begin with asking for audience volunteers. Who wants to be the first
to be destroyed? Oh, come now. Don't tell me you have stage fright.

Mimi: I didn't even want to go to camp in the first place! I just wanted to go to the mall! Can't
anybody else save this silly world besides me?

Sora: Mimi!

Mimi: I want to be a normal kid and not have too many responsibilities! I mean, come on, is that too much to ask? It's not fair!

Piedmon: Ugh. Your incessant whining is getting on my nerves. You will be the first to go.

Mimi: Huh?

[PIEDMON throws a sword at MIMI]

Chuumon: Ah!

[Chuumon jumps in front of the sword]

Mimi: Chuumon, speak to me, your poor thing! 

Chuumon: Mimi. It's time for me to be deleted.

Mimi: Chuumon!

[Chuumon disintegrates]

Piedmon: Chuumon was a fool.

Mimi: Oh, Chuumon!

Piedmon: So, now that he's out of the way, who would like to be the next one to make their
grand exit?

Tai: Piedmon, you're going to be washed up where we're through with you!

Dark Masters: *laugh*

Piedmon: Be my guest!

Piximon: Pixi Bomb!

[the kids fly away in a bubble]

TK: Hey, Piximon! Perfect timing!

Piximon: I missed you!

Izzy: Prodigious! You cleverly used a barrier to avoid detection!

Piximon: I sure did!

Tai: You said it was possible to save the planet if the eight of us were together! How come it's
not happening? What's up, Piximon?

Piximon: The truth is, being together's not enough. There's something else you need to do to beat

Sora: How are we going to find out if you won't help?

Joe: Yeah, enough riddles!

Piximon: This is something you will discover on your own.

[the bubble is hit by an attack]

All: Ah!

MetalSeadramon: *laugh* Here you are!

Piximon: I'll try and stop 'em! Meanwhile, you make a run for it and climb to the top of Spiral
Mountain! But you'd better move it!

Matt: But you can't stop them! They're all Mega Digimon!

Piximon: I know I can't win, but I should be able yo distract them long enough for you to get

Tai: I'll stay with you!

Piximon: No way! We need you on Spiral Mountain! We're counting on you to beat them!

MetalSeadramon: River of Power!

Piximon: Please go now! You have a very important task ahead of you! If you succeed, no one
will ever be able you stop you again! I know you will make me proud of you.

[PIXIMON hits the bubble away with his staff]

Gabumon: He's stronger than he looks!

Matt: He'll have to be.

Kari: Do you think it's possible he can do it?

Gabumon: I don't know, Kari. I hope so!

Piximon: Rrr...

Piedmon: How can a powerless little Digimon even think of defeating us?

Piximon: Just call me a crazy little Digimon.

Narrator: Will Piximon hold off the Dark Masters long enough for the DigiDestined to get to
Spiral Mountain? Find out next time, on Digimon: Digital Monsters!
