|Episode 1: The Legend of Chima|
|This episode starts with Eris being captured by Cragger's forces. The image then cuts Laval looking for his harness. After getting distracted by a dummy, he then goes to the CHI temple to receive his first taste of Chi. However, right when he is about to put it in his harness, the Crocodile, Wolf, and Raven forces attack. As explosions rock the temple, Laval's Chi is knocked out of his hands. Cragger (in disguise) steals Laval's Chi orb as well as several other orbs from the pool. Laval chases Cragger on his Speedor, where it leads to a showdown. Laval manages to defeat Cragger, but before he strikes the killing blow, he recognizes Cragger.
The show then goes back in time to the time when Cragger and Laval were still friends. It shows some scenes of all the animals playing a form of hide and seek (or hide and attack, as Cragger calls it). Laval and Cragger sword fight, and try to wake up Bladvix. In a few minutes, Cragger asks Laval who his best friend is. Laval replies that it's Cragger, saying "nothing will ever get between them." Cragger persuades Laval to sneak into the Lion Temple's Chi pool. Cragger is amazed by the sight and asks Laval if he ever wanted to know what it felt like to plug some Chi. Laval is shocked and adamantly tells Cragger not to do it. However, Cragger ignores him and puts an orb in his chest. He goes completely berserk, even attacking Laval, throwing Bladvix in the air, and shoving Gorzan and Worriz to the side. He eventually arrives at a large rock, and starts running madly against it. Soon, he is blasted by a pulse weapon from Lagravis, who admonishes Laval and contacts Cragger's parents.
The next scene opens when Crominus emerges from a pool, yelling "They did WHAT?!" The croc vehicles then power up and head to the Lion Temple. Soon, Crominus gets into an argument with Lagravis about who's idea it was to sneak into the Lion Temple. Cragger then betrays Laval and tells Crunket and Crominus that it was all Laval's idea and Laval made him do it. Crominus then demands an apology and after receiving none, he storms off, saying that he will never forget this.
A few days later, Cragger is playing hide-and-seek with Worriz. After Worriz is found, he complains that the game is boring. Cragger then tells him that he's not allowed to play with Laval anymore. Worriz replies that Cragger was very bold to plug an orb and has one question: What was it like. They then agree to go themselves. As Worriz and Cragger run to the pool, Cragger is stopped by Lagravis and some lion guards. As Worriz flees, Cragger panics and attacks Lagravis, then escapes. Laval, who had shown up later on, says that "Nobody attacks his dad and gets away with it!" Laval pursues Cragger on his Speedor and Cragger panicks and sends op a Croc Flare, a war cry against the lions. Laval soon catches up to Cragger and Cragger apologizes for the army he sent. Laval is shocked and Cragger goes to try to tell his parents to stop, but ends up just hopping in their vehicle. As the battle commences, Crominus fires a croc-grappling hook at Lagravis' Royal Fighter. As Lagravis tries to free his tank, Crominus' vehicle falls down a sinkhole and gets entangled with the Royal Fighter. Lagravis then tries to pull the croc vehicle out of the hole, and actually is beginning to succeed, when Cragger panics, cuts the rope, and tries to free his parents himself. He then demands Laval for a Chi orb, and the strength to save his parents, Laval refuses and Crominus and Crunket tumble down the sinkhole. At the end of the episode, Crominus attempts to call Cragger, but to no avail. The final words are "Don't listen to your sister!"
|Episode 2: The Great Story|
|The episode opens with Cragger looking at his new crown sadly. Crug and Crawley are trying to cheer him up, but to no avail as he believes his parents are dead (which they aren't). Crooler, Cragger's sister, then appears with a purplish flower. Cragger states that doesn't want to declare war on the lions, but she claims that the flower will cheer him up if he sniffs it. After taking a deep breath, Cragger's eyes glow red and he commands the crocs to attack the Lion Temple and "avenge" his parents.
The next scene opens with Laval and Lagravis walking down along the temple steps. Lagravis then proceeds the tell the Great Story to Laval, who complains that it is boring. Lagravis ignores him and continues the story: A very long time ago, animals used to walk on all fours. Then, the land was blessed with Chi, causing Mount Cavora to rise from the ground and supply liquid Chi to the land. The animals that drank it became what they are now (minifigures). However, some animals did not drink the Chi and prefered to stay pure. They disappeared from the land forever, and some even doubt they exist. As the story ends, Lagravis starts handing out Chi to the different tribes, however doesn't know where Cragger is. Then, the golden Chi is revealed. Each of the animals' Speedorz show up, and Lagravis announces that they must joust for the golden Chi. Laval ends up being the winner, even after Worriz uses unauthorized weapons against him. As Laval unseats Worriz, Worriz plunges into a thorn bush and half his fur is shaved off, humiliating him terribly. Just as Laval is about to be awarded with the golden Chi, Cragger shows up, demanding that he joust Laval. Laval refuses, as the rules state that if anyone is late, they will be disqualified. Cragger then says that he'll find someone who will, then charges Eris, threatening death. Laval is irate and hops on his Speedor, pursuing Cragger, who leads him to the falling forest. After having a duel (which Cragger wins), Eris and Gorzan show up and stop Cragger from finishing Laval off. Cragger then runs off to get help from the wolves in destroying the lions.
After several Pack Trackers approach the Croc Swamp Hideout, Worriz makes a deal with Cragger to band together to destroy the lions. Cragger then states the Ravens are helping too, as they had been persuaded with the "Trinkets and Treasure" of the croc tribe, where the scene cuts to showing Razar telling his troops about the deal.
Then, the scene shifts to the battle scene from the first part, and goes up to where Laval recognized Cragger just before he killed him. Cragger then attacks Laval and the two fight until Cragger grabs Laval and throws him in the water, remarked that he was always a bad swimmer. Laval calls for help but Cragger refuses and leaves him to drown.
The scene cuts back to the battle, where Lagravis summons the Eagles and Gorillas by a powerful Sonic Roar. They soon show up in the fight, but the Crocodiles, Ravens, and Wolves still dominate. The scene then cuts to Cragger approaching Crooler and asking her how the battle was going. She replies that it's going well and asks if he took care of Laval. By then, the evil flower was wearing off and Cragger begins to realize that he did something terrible. However, as he was about to go back and save him, she sprays him with the flower again, and he cackles maliciously.
Then, the scene cuts to Laval, floating in the river. A mysterious hand grabs his cloak and rescues him. He soon coughs up water and discovers himself in the presence of a Lion Legend.
The scene returns to the battle as Laval shows up riding the Legend Lion. Cragger, getting a few more whifs of the evil flower, uses a chi orb and charges the beast. The beast calmly lifts a hand and swipes at Cragger, sending him flying rapidly into the wall and losing his Chi. Cragger then attacks Laval, who had taken a Chi orb and put it in his chest. Cragger is easily defeated and given 10 seconds to make his troops leave the field. The episode ends with Cragger's forces retreating and the Lion Legend Beast walking into the distance.
|Episode 3: The Warrior Within|
|The episode starts with Lagravis and Laval giving out CHI to the tribes of Chima when Cragger and Crooler turn up and ask for some. Although Laval protests, Lagravis still lets them have it and says that they must follow the rules and share the CHI fairly. Meanwhile, Gorzan and Gloona find a flower in the middle of the road and decide to protect it from tribes and vehicles.
Laval then tracks Cragger down and warns them that if they abuse the CHI that he will stop them. Cragger then orders Crug and Crawley to battle Laval and after a short fight, Cragger and Crooler then give Laval the CHI as part of their plan. Meanwhile, Gorzan sends the peaceful Eagles and the more aggresive Rhinos on a detour to protect the flower.
After a talk with Eris about what happened last time a lion kept too much CHI, Laval decides to give the CHI back to Cragger who then uses it to his advantage by framing Laval for stealing the CHI in front of his tribe. Laval and Eris must then retreat and are pursued by Cragger and his army. He goes to the gorge where he drops the CHI down so that Cragger can't get it but Cragger then pushes him down with it. He is only saved by Eris in her interceptor and they then retreat after being shot down by the crocodiles. Meanwhile, Gorzan continues to protect the flower, and tries to tell the Ravens to take the detour, who were trying to help the Crocodiles. Razar wants him to cover their extra travel costs. He then uproots the flower and tries to sell it to him. Gorzan believes it was a different flower, but when he finds out he is not happy with this and takes the flower back. The Ravens run away from the enraged ape and take the detour.
Laval is then goes to find the legend beast but is cornered by Cragger and his troops. Cragger uses an orb of Chi he kept, but Plomar then arrives to clean Craggers teeth and is then chased away. The fight continues but Laval is overwhelmed. Meanwhile, Gorzan is still protecting the flower and this time Worriz shows up, needing to meet Cragger, and the two fight. Worriz loses, but a part of his vehicle falls off, leading to the flower being damaged.
Laval is then saved but not by the legend beast but rather Eris and multiple Leonidases. Cragger retreats when informed that the Ravens and Wolfs took a detour. Laval then sees the Legend Beast and realizes that he didn't come because of what Laval did with the CHI. Chima then experiences a short earthquake and Laval realizes what he has done wrong. The two then meet up with Gloona and Gorzan who have taken the flower to a hilltop where it can be safe. Gorzan has learned that the road is not the safe place for a flower and all four then let those flowers let them smile. Meanwhile, Crooler plans her next move against the Lions, and tells her brother.
|Episode 4: The Joy Ride|
|The episode starts with Laval cleaning the map room and Eris enters. They then decide to visit some of these places and set of in Lagravis' Lion Tank. They are spied on by Cragger and Crooler who are planning to attack while Lagravis, Laval and Eris are away.
Laval and Eris cross a bridge and Laval admits he hasn't driven the tank before. They then enter the falling jungle because Eris messed up the directions. They are rescued by Gorzan and then have to dig the tank out of the mud. Laval says they will have plenty of time to clean it off as his father is off trying to sign a treaty with the Rhinos. They then go up spiral mountain and see all the views but keep almost slipping over the edge.
Meanwhile, Lagravis visits the Rhino tribe and tries to find someone to talk to someone and tries to break up a fight. The Rhinos laugh when he says about sorting out their differences as the Rhinos fight for the fun of it, not because they're angry at each other.
Laval and Eris then reach the top of spiral mountain and witness what they believe to be the best sunset in all of Chima. However, Laval forgot to leave the parking brake on so the tank rolls backwards and falls off the mountain. They find the ruined tank at the bottom and Laval begins to worry. Eris then has an idea and they go to the Beaver tribe who supposedly are really good at rebuilding vehicles and also love doing it. They appear hostile at first but when Laval mentions the tank they all get very excited and agree to help.
The chief beaver then shows Laval and Eris the other work that they've been doing and they're shocked to find a dam being build to block of the water flowing into the Lion Temple. The beavers say that a crocodile, Cragger, asked them to do it.
At the Lion Temple, the elders find that the pool is empty and send out a distress roar which Lagravis (who is having no luck with the Rhinos) hears and returns to find out whats going on but is attacked by wolves on his way back.
Laval and Eris then tell the rest of the beavers about the tank and they immediately abandon work on the dam to help fix the tank. Cragger and Crooler then attack while Eris and Laval attempt to destroy the dam. During the fight, Cragger plugs an orb and sends off a wave of energy which topples the dam. Laval then wakes up in his room and finds that everything worked out alright and that the beavers even drove the tank back for him. However, they added a few modifications and Lagravis is angry to find his tank now has wings.
