At Castle Grayskull the Sorceress tells Man-At-Arms and Prince Adam of a vision she had involving Skeletor at the Ocean of Gnarl. Skeletor's power was so vast in the Sorceress' vision that he plunged Eternia into a new age of darkness. The Sorceress continues that she believes Skeletor has learnt the secret of Anwat Gar. The Sorceress continues that the Legacy Stones are ancient artifacts of great power, still believed to be hidden in the citadel on Anwat Gar.

Traversing the Ocean of Gnarl on their War Whale ships He-Man and Man-At-Arms discuss Anwat Gar. Man-At-Arms tells He-Man that Anwat Gar's weaponry was legendary. He-Man and Man-At-Arms notice large waves originating from the island. Man-At-Arms is knocked from his War Whale and falls deep into the ocean, but He-Man dives in and saves him from drowning.

Finding themselves on an island, He-Man and Man-At-Arms overcome some of the its obstacles before they stand before the citadel of Anwat Gar, home to the Legacy Stones. Standing outside the citadel He-Man and Man-At-Arms are confronted by two large statues, which they manage to defeat. As He-Man and Man-At-Arms approach the citadel a being appears introducing himself as Sy-Klone, protector of the Legacy Stones. He-Man and Man-At-Arms attempt to explain that they have no quarrel with Sy-Klone, but Sy-Klone attacks them with little hesitation.

During one of Sy-Klone's attacks Man-At-Arms is injured. As Sy-Klone continues his attack He-Man rushes towards Sy-Klone and knocks him from his feet. Sy-Klone uses his full power to throw He-Man far from the citadel, but He-Man retaliates and manages to defeat Sy-Klone. As He-Man attempts to tell Sy-Klone that his duty is misdirected, Skeletor and Beast Man appear above them on the roof of the citadel now possessing the Legacy Stones.

Skeletor uses his Havoc Staff to knock Sy-Klone from the sky, injuring him. Skeletor then activates one of the Legacy Stones, granting him the power of Anwat Gar, donning him in samurai-like armor. Skeletor blasts He-Man, then leaps across Anwat Gar towards Castle Grayskull. Beast Man attempts to use the other Legacy Stone, but forgets the spell. He-Man knocks down Beast Man and activates the power of the Legacy Stone granting him the same power as Skeletor. He-Man pursues Skeletor leaping after him. As an injured Man-At-Arms walks away from the temple Beast Man confronts him. Meanwhile He-Man and Skeletor come face-to-face and engage in amazing physical combat, powered by the Legacy Stones. Beast Man continues to follow Man-At-Arms, tracking his scent. Man-At-Arms tricks Beast Man into tripping a floor panel, which activates more of the island's defenses. He-Man and Skeletor stand off as Skeletor states that the Legacy armor makes them both invincible and that neither of them can win. He-Man agreeing with Skeletor removes his helmet and the power of the Legacy Stone vanishes. An overconfident Skeletor holds He-Man against a rock, allowing He-Man to remove Skeletor's helmet with ease. Skeletor loses the power of the Legacy Stone, and escapes with Beast Man.

Back at the citadel He-Man tells Man-At-Arms that Skeletor escaped. Sy-Klone appears and thanks He-Man for preventing the Legacy Stones from falling into evil hands. Believing they pose too great a danger He-Man destroys the Legacy Stones. Sy-Klone believing that his duty and purpose is over tells He-Man that it is time for the last defender of Anwat Gar to rest. He-Man places his hand on Sy-Klone's shoulder disagreeing, and a short while later at the Royal Palace the Masters welcome Sy-Klone to their ranks.
