Shimazu Returns is the two-parter of Power Rangers Ninja Storm which introduces the evil Shimazu.


When an ancient being called Shimazu returns and unleashes powerful monsters on the city, Cam makes a journey to find the Lightning Riff Blaster, which summons the Mighty Mammoth Zord to help the Rangers destroy the monsters.


Part 1

While retrieving a powerful artifact from a museum, Cam is attacked by a reanimated Motodrone. Amidst the ruckus, an ancient statue comes to life. It is the ancient evil being known as Shimazu. Shimazu joins Lothor's army and unleashes three creatures called Wolfblades. Hunter goes after Motodrone on his Ninja Glider Cycle. The other Rangers battle Shimazu and his Wolfblades. After Motodrone grounds Hunter, Shane armors up and defeats him. And the other Rangers defeat the Wolfblades. Not surprisingly, the Wolfblades merge into a giant monster.

Part 2

The Rangers summon the Thunderstorm Megazord, but it doesn't do any good against Wolfblade. Cam whips out the artifact, a scroll, and learns that he needs to find a portal. He must take the Rangers' Power Discs to open the portal. With their Power Discs with Cam, the Rangers hit the Zords unmorphed when Wolfblade strikes again. Cam reaches the portal, and on the other side, finds a new weapon - the Lightning Riff Blaster. He uses it to summon the Mighty Mammoth Zord, which combines with the Megazord to destroy Wolfblade. A talent contest the Rangers have been practicing for is ruined by Marah and Kapri, who are discovered cheating.
