During the feast, a termite chomps on Donald to which the three chase him across the World Tree. Seeing the cosmic fruits in the Tree, Sheldgoose finds himself high above with the Caballeros below the him and his ancestor to which upon seeing three termites, the Caballeros plan to stop Felldrake, but makes it challenging by using his magical powers on the termites, mutating them into monstrous size. The mutated termites chase the Caballeros across the World Tree as they plan to kill the trio.

Meanwhile, Xandra is discussing with the gods about what happened to them to which Jupiter explains that they have been gardening for years while Xandra is still trapped in the golden atlas to which while explaining to the three about being obsessed with harvesting, Jupiter notices the mutated termites charging down the tree which reminds Mars of the Titan War all over again as the three hide under tables from the termites.

Meanwhile, the Caballeros are discussing a plan to get rid of the mutated termites to which Donald dresses himself as a tree to distract the termites. Later, when Baron von Sheldgoose grabs the World Fruit, he absorbs the power for Felldrake as part of his plans, leaving Xandra in worry and planning to fight against the evil warlock. Xandra explains to Daisy's nieces for help to which June explains to her to look inside herself to be heroic.

Later, Donald (wearing a tree costume while being used by José and Panchito) is at the mercy of being devoured by the mutated termites to which Xandra fires an arrow at a few termites to which Xandra explains that she brought in the Roman gods to rescue them from the mutated termites to which the Roman gods and Xandra fend off the mutated termites. Having taken care of the termites (reverting them back to their normal forms), Xandra notices Felldrake absorbing powerful magic as Xandra faces him and his descendant to which Sheldgoose and his ancestor send a meteor shower to destroy the World Tree to which Xandra, Jupiter, Venus, and Mars protect the Tree from the meteor shower with help from the Caballeros to which the three are tasked to distract him to which in a plan to stop him, Jupiter tosses the three to the spot Sheldgoose is at as the gods continue deflecting the meteors to which as the Caballeros confuse Sheldgoose, Xandra fires a perfect shot at Sheldgoose, causing him to drop the World Fruit as the meteor Sheldgoose is on crumbles as the Caballeros rope a branch for them to avoid falling, leaving Felldrake and Sheldgoose defeated. Xandra praises the gods for their heroism as the gods celebrate their victory with Earth-themed pie. Meanwhile, Sheldgoose and his ancestor land on Easter Island as a Moai notices what is going on.

Voice Cast

Trivia

  • During the Whack-a-Mole sequence, Panchito does his signature "Pistol fingers" as a nod to his previous appearance and his name in the 1944 movie.
  • The episode was originally to have been more properly focused on Norse Mythology and utilize members of the Norse pantheon, but this was changed to Roman Gods at the request of Marvel to avoid brand confusion with the Thor franchise.
  • While not based on the Greek gods as depicted in Hercules, the gods do mention having fought a war in the past with the giant Titans just as revealed in the prologue of the 1997 film.
