Following a year after the events of Wizards, Douxie Casperan, Nari & Archie are ambushed by the arrival of the Arcane Order in a subway train (located in Metro City). Jim Lake Jr & Claire Nunez accompanied the three and Toby Domzaski accidentally breaks the train’s brakes, causing the train to go fast and never slow down, as the other heroes (Stuart, Steve Palchuck & Krel Tarron) plans to use the anti-magic generator to stop the Arcane Order from using their magic. While Jim is wounded in battle against one of the Arcane Order’s members, Bellroc, the train begins to go off-track and Douxie uses his charm bracelet to create magical train tracks. Afterwards, Douxie switches bodies with Nari, and she is now in Douxie’s body.
In the newly rebuilt Camelot, Jim recovers his wounds and both Aja Tarron & Eli Pepperjack arrive from Akiradion-5, with Steve kissing Aja for the seventh time and Aja reveals that the seventh kiss can make babies, and Steve is the one who will be pregnant. All of the heroes gather around in the round table to discuss about the Arcane Order (In Merlin's Grimoire), who have sought to reawaken the Titans and combine the beings in the center of the universe, which will make Earth reborn and back to it’s first creation. Elsewhere, the Arcane Order finds Douxie switching places with Nari, and the order uses their magic to revert the two back into their normal bodies. Before being reverted back to her body, Nari informs JIm that the trollhunter must make the ninth configuration and the krohnisfere will make it right. The heroes then enter a roundhouse and discover that the Arcane Order is already preparing the ritual. While the heroes try their best effort to destroy the Genesis Seals, Jim tries to unlock his new and improved amulet but fails, and the ritual is completed. Each member of the Arcane Order controls one titan from Greenland, Brazil and the South China Sea.
The heroes then makes a plan; Jim needs the stone from Excalibur’s hilt for his new amulet and sends Krel, Stuart, Steve & Eli to get Excalibur (which is still struck on the stone), Claire leads a team (consisting of Blinky Galadrigal, Claire, Archie & Charlemagne) to Hong Kong in search for the krohnisfere (which is in the hands of Zong-Shi, the leader of the TrollDragons in a new trollmarket) & the rest of the heroes tries their best to defeat the Titans. Stricklander & Nomura both are killed in a battle against the titans, and Jim’s team (consisting of Toby & Aja) travels to Hong Kong after receiving no contact from Claire’s team. While on their way to the new trollmarket, Jim’s team discovers that Bellroc’s titan is approaching a bridge until Varvatos Vex arrives in a mech suit designed by Eli (inspired by Gun Robot, a fictional character from the same universe). Bellroc manages to destroy the mech suit but Varvatoes manages to flee to safety. Jim & Toby manage to rescue Claire’s team to escape the new trollmarket, burning his right hand in the process. However, both Charlemagne & Archie stay behind to fend off an entire army of trolls dragons. The heroes reunite and Douxie manages to get inside Nari’s head, unlocking her freewill. Nari, on the side of the heroes, battles with Skrael’s titan and none of the two emerge victorious.
Afterwards, the heroes discover that Bellroc’s titan is not responding to Skrael & Nari’s defeat and is still marching to Arcadia Oaks. The heroes then realises that Blinky missed a page where if one succeeds, that one can unite with a heartstone which will be an element of making earth reborn. The heroes meet up in Arcadia Oaks, and Jim fails once again to lift Excalibur off of the stone, until he realises that the ninth configuration is meant to represent him and his friends. As his friends place their hands on the stone and surrounding him, Jim ultimately pulls Excalibur off of the stone, and sends Stuart off to replace the new amulet’s stone with Excalibur’s stone. All of the heroes struggle to defeat Bellroc in an epic battle, Jim accepts that the amulet never made him a hero, he already was one, and the new amulet manages to come towards him, and in new armor, Jim faces off against Bellroc in an epic battle. Meanwhile, Toby rushes the truck, carrying the anti-magic ray, and he uses it stop Bellroc from using their magic, with gives Jim the opportunity to kill Bellroc with Excalibur, causing their titan to fall to the ground. As the heroes celebrate their victory and Steve’s pregnancy of giving birth to seven babies, Toby is nowhere in sight, and Jim rushes to search for him and finds that Toby has been crushed by the debris. A dying Toby gives his last breath, leaving all of the heroes in sorrow.
Afterwards, Jim realises that the krohnisfere was meant to prevent all of the events they've been through from ever happening, and he gives his last goodbye to everyone before traveling to the first episode of Trollhunters (the morning where he found the amulet). Jim decides to give up his duty and allow Toby to take over the mantle, and after Toby finds the amulet in the remains of the Kanjigar, Toby yells his catchphrase; “AWESOMESAUCE!”
