The Ninja accidentally summons a giant monster when he uses an ancient ninja lesson during a rap battle.
Randy practices Earth Attack, although Randy gets wrong on his first try. Eventually, he gets it right and the NinjaNomicon tells him that words can be more powerful than a sword. Randy comments he can't stab an opponent with words. Meanwhile, Howard is getting excited about trying to join Rhymez's crew after he won Bash in rapping.
Howard refuses to give Randy the Nomicon unless they join the crew, much to Randy's chagrin. The Nomicon flies and crashes in Rhymez's food, causing it to get on his hoodie. Randy humiliates him accidentally by apologizing in rhyme. He forces Randy to a rap battle if he wanted to reclaim his book. Howard, during this time, keeps trying to join Rhymez, but instead is placed in Randy's crew.
Howard starts blaming Randy for humiliating Rhymez and Randy states that it was his fault for taking the Nomicon. Then, Howard states everything after that is his fault. Howard asks Randy for opinion of his costume while trying to think of something that rhymes. Randy suddenly overwhelms Rhymez with the ancient spell plus calling him a worm. Because of that, a gigantic Sand Worm was summoned, causing whoever argues or fights against Randy to be caught and brought underground.
After failing to defeat the worm on his own, Randy uses Earth Attack and summons two Ninja warriors made of sand which he calls "Sandjas". Dispite it being ineffective after realizing that the worm can reattach itself fortunately Randy discovered that if the pieces are too small they can't be put together which prompts him to order the Sandjas create a sand cyclone with the sand-jas. The cyclone envelopes the worm and breaks it down. With the battle over Howard remarks that if the Sand-jas obeyed the Ninja commands as they did, the case was likely the same for the worm.
In the end Randy manages to get the Nomicon back and 30 Seconds to Math performs on stage with Rhymez's crew.
