The Ninja Encounter is a three-part episode of the second season of Digimon Mighty Squadron. This content is used from the Power Rangers wiki.
Alex, Maggie, & Nicky meet Cody, Liam, & Zoe while rescuing a baby from falling off a cliff. Later that week, they watched the newcomers win a ninja tournament against a team of undefeated, yet cocky champions.
Tactimon was interested in recruiting the champions because of their evil qualities, but when he learned that the other side won the tournament, he decided to recruit them instead. He sent MadLeomon & a platoon of Claymon to kidnap the three kids & their teacher, Mr. Wakao. Alex, Maggie, & Nicky tried to save them, but were unsuccessful.
Afterwards, the DigiDestined (all six of them) had to balance rescuing the four civilians with fighting a Digimon that was attacking Tokyo. They managed to defeat the Digimon & save the hostages at the very last second, but as Nicky was wrestling with Tactimon's evil snake, he was bitten on the neck. Alex & Maggie comforts Nicky & uses his digivice to heal him. However, unbeknownst to them, Cody, Liam, & Zoe were watching on from the entrance to the cave, & inadvertently learned the identities of the DigiDestined.
Back at the Command Center, Cody, Liam, & Zoe learned of the identities of the Taylor, Spencer, & Carly as well, & took an oath to never reveal the DigiDestined's identities.
