The groups of animals don't get off to a great start, so Bunga waits by a tree, while the animals are instructed to race over to him. Unfortunately, only the galagos complete the task, while the larger animals collapse onto each other.
Kion summons Makuu's Float to teach them how to fight, while the Guard take away many of Bupu's herd to speak with them. However, Ono notices Makuu's fighting techniques are not working as planned, and thus the Guard return to intervene, much to Makuu's annoyance. He leaves.
Having seen everything, Shupavu and Njano return to Scar, who conjures up a plan.
Janja's Clan, Reirei's Pack and Kiburi's Float locate Makuu's float, and Kiburi engages in combat with Makuu. Nearby, Ono witnesses the clash, and reports back to the Lion Guard. The other animals insist on helping out, and they race away.
When they arrive, the animal groups face off against the army, and ultimately win. When they leave, Makuu thanks the animals for their assistance.
