Rita had come up with a plan and it was working. Rita had planted a stray cat (really a human girl, Kat) in the path of Kimberly and Aisha. Kimberly and Aisha were quite taken with the cat. They had taken it to the animal shelter. If no one claim it, the cat would become theirs. Rito was sent down to prevent anyone from claiming the cat. Rito had fun scaring people away, but Aisha (who was volunteering in the animal shelter) heard the commotion. Yellow Ninja battle Rito until the rest of the Rangers arrive. Rito was concern, but several Tenga Warriors arrive. The Tenga Warriors and Rita battle the Ninjas. Eventually the Tenga Warriors retreat and Rito soon followed. But the plan worked and Aisha and Kimberly adopted the cat and named it PC.
Finster, Baboo, and Squatt had found the dormant zords, the Shogunzords. Now they needed a power coin to operate it. Rita sent Kat on the mission to steal a power coin. Kat was at the lake with her "friends". There were a lot of people at the lake, and Rita knew Kat couldn't steal the coin with so many people around. Rito suggested they send down the Tenga Warriors as a distraction. The Tenga Warriors were sent down to the lake. The Tenga Warriors caused a lot of chaos, and people ran in all directions. Soon the lake was empty. The Tenga Warriors wondered what had happened to the kids on the lake. Soon the Rangers appeared, in their ninja gear. The Tenga Warriors battled the Rangers. During this time, Kat managed to steal Kimberly's power coin. The Tenga Warriors then retreated. Later, the Tenga Warriors, along with Goldar, arrived in the park. White Ranger and Ninjor arrived. The Tenga Warriors and Goldar battled White Ranger and Ninjor. Again, during the battle, Kat managed to take over the Falconzord, with the power coin. The battle greatly weakened Ninjor.

Lord Zedd spotted them and sent down Tenga Warriors. Tommy had made it through when the Tenga Warriors arrived. Adam, Billy, Rocky, and Aisha went into their ninja gear. The Tenga Warriors battled the four Rangers. During the battle, two of the Tenga Warriors spotted the device. They went over and wrecked it. Once the device was wrecked, the Tenga Warriors retreated.
Rita wanted to prevent Kimberly from competing in the Pan Global games. To do this, Rita decided she would get Kimberly exhausted. Rita waited for the right moment. Kimberly had been practicing her routine very hard. Rita then sent down several attacks. Rita sent down Artistmole and Vampirus to attack one area. Several Tenga Warriors in another area. Goldar, Rito, and several more Tenga Warriors in a different area. The five Rangers split up. The Tenga Warriors had an easy time battling. The one group battling Blue Ranger and Black Ranger while the other group battled White Ranger. Eventually Pink Ranger had to be called in to help White Ranger. The battle continued, but the rest of the Rangers managed to get Artistmole, Vampirus, and the rest of the Tenga Warriors in one area. The Tenga Warriors battled the Rangers until they were defeated. But the plan worked, and Kimberly eventually collapsed in exhaustion. Kat had managed to break through the spell and had tried to prevent Kimberly from getting hurt. But Kat was too late. Weeks earlier, a Tenga Warrior, disguised as a human boy, had talked to Kat. Rita snuck up on them. The boy revealed himself to be a Tenga Warrior. Rita then placed a terrified Kat under her spell.
Kat had gotten help for Kimberly and Kimberly was now at Angel Grove Community Hospital. Rito reported to Rita and Lord Zedd that Kimberly had recovered and they were furious.
