Cheren Uno is happy to be back home after his adventure in Termina. He and Panini meet up with Francis, Zach, and Maddy at Facilier's workshop, and Facilier explains that Viridi's minions are made out of Nightmare substance. Meanwhile, Vweeb and Arianna are on Planet Secco, where Arianna is trying to find seeds of Ancient Flowers, and hopefully bring life back to the planet, but Vweeb is uninterested, much to Arianna's disappointment. Arianna and Vweeb later return to base, and Nebula gives them, Makava, and Tronta the mission to follow Viridi's troops when they come to pick up their shipment of ordered Nightmare substance. As Nebula meets with Darkrai, Darkrai explains their used to be an Underworld drug that can de-power gods, and that Grim may have it. At this time, Vweeb has shrunken his friends down as they hide on the crate of Nightmare energy, and some Forces of Nature come to take it. They stay hidden on the way to Viridi's homeworld, but a flash knocks them out. Arianna wakes up in Virid's lair as they chat for a while, and Viridi begins to brainwash her.
As all this happens, Anthony is training with earthbending, and Angie calls them in to meet her friend, Chiri the Minish. Chiri leads them to the Virginian Forest, where she introduces her kids, Sappo and Gibli, as the Sector W team enters the Minish Portal, and shrinks down into the Minish World. Anthony goes with Chiri to learn about his family's history, while the rest of Sector W learn the ways of the Pikmin. As Cheren is later hanging out with his friends at Goofy Goober's, strange Mob guys come to take a shipment of ice cream. Afterwards, Cheren gets the call from Larry MayHence, saying Nebula wants him to go to the Underworld. Cheren meets with Grim in Castle Hell, and Grim gives him the Vial, the dangerous poison that can defeat gods. The Sector W team then go to Ashland Park, still tiny, as they train with their Pikmin by taking food from peoples' picnic blankets. Anthony also trains with his Seismic Sense, by detecting the people in the park. Meanwhile, Cheren meets with all the Sector Leaders as they discuss a possible strategy for taking down Viridi. At this time, Arianna returns to her house on Harnita, secretly hypnotised as she greets her mother. Arianna steals Nova's Spirit Ball, containing Celebi, and returns to Viridi. Viridi uses Arianna as Arianna orders Celebi to give Viridi more power.
Cheren goes to the park, debating whether or not to use the Vial. He randomly encounters a strange man drunk on cherry pie, and he makes a speech about the value of freedom, and whatever decision Cheren makes to win the war will be worth it. Suddenly, the world is invaded by Viridi's forces, and Angie McKenzie, as well as Michelle, are captured by General Caud. Sector W, with Sappo and Gibli, stow away on Angie's slave-ship inside the Pikmins' Onion. Cheren Uno manages to escape Earth with Sector V and some Moonbase workers, and they all head for GKND H.Q.. Later, Sector W ends up on a planet of giant plants, where they meet Team Vweeb, who have tamed a Kikwi. They learn they are on Planet Flora as Team Vweeb guides Sector W to a garden of Kikwi. Machi the Kikwi explains Viridi has been using their vegetables to power her troops, and ordered them not to tell anyone. They all take the Onion and head for GKND H.Q.. There, they explain what happened to Cheren and Nebula, and they track Arianna's location using her communicator. All of the Kids Next Door begin to prepare for the invasion on Flora.
At 5:00, they all launch off for the Floran Summit, and the war finally begins. The Supreme Leaders demonstrate their powers as they break through the troops. Partway through the battle, giant enemies called Forest King and Mudgiants emerge, making things more difficult. Eventually, Numbuh 12-X-11 gets zapped by electricity, and gains incredible electrical power as he begins to destroy numerous troops. He announces himself as Volcor, God of Thunder, and claims to bring judgment. He is silenced and stopped by one of his operatives, as Sector W7 begins to shoot through on their R.O.C.K.E.T.-T.R.A.I.N.. They charge and burst through the entrance to Virdi's factory, and many operatives fly in.
They all separate and begin attacking various parts of the factory. Francis Drilovsky gets to Phosphora's room and does battle with the super-powered lightningbender. As Francis is getting beat, Marcus Drilovsky comes to help him, and prevails in the fight. Francis later destroys Phosphora's Lightning Plant and disables the woman's powers, afterwards knocking her out. Later, Zach Murphy encounters Arlon in his room, and in the following battle, Zach was first getting beat. Zach eventually reveals his Bo-bobo Kempo Style, and using his 12 Months Attack, he defeats Arlon.
Cheren finally meets Viridi in her throne room, having brought the tiny Team Vweeb, and they see that she has brainwashed Arianna. Cheren tries to fight Viridi, but couldn't damage her, as Viridi revealed herself a Logia-type plantbender. Cheren eventually learns she's weak against fire, and as he tries to use Fire Arrows, Viridi banishes Cheren to her factory's dungeon. In the dungeon, Cheren meets Panini, who has met a group of Kikwi called the Floran Kids Next Door. As they make their way back up, Team Vweeb continues to fight Arianna. Arianna was about to win against her tiny friends when Rachel Uno and Angie suddenly arrive. They have brought Nova with them, and Nova takes control of Celebi and orders her to release Arianna. Cheren and the Kikwi arrive in Viridi's room, and Cheren begins his final fight with Viridi.
During the fight, Viridi is about to prevail, but Cheren goes into his Demon State form and is able to knock her down, feeding her the Poison of the Gods. However, Viridi survives using a sack in her throat to catch the deadly poison. Viridi then absorbs all the energy from her Forces of Nature and turns into her ultimate form, Mother Nature, and she and Cheren engage in one last fight, as Cheren uses the Fierce Deity's Mask. The fight concludes when Cheren is able to make her swallow the poison, and Viridi changes to her normal, powerless self. As Cheren remembers all the crimes Viridi did in the past, he slays the goddess.
Everyone returns to GKND H.Q. for a party as Nebula signs a document with the Floran KND, making them part of the Kid Council. Cheren feels wrong about killing Viridi when she was powerless, but Rachel helps him understand that it was for the better. Cheren feels better and decides to party with the others. Meanwhile, 6 mysterious figures discuss Cheren's actions, and are impressed.

- The scene where Vweeb and Arianna were on Secco was originally going to be a one-shot between the two, during which Arianna feels like she's boring Vweeb, while the latter admits he admires how dedicated she is and how caring. It became a much better concept for Vweeb to not really care and for him to grow out of Arianna.

- This is the first short Nextgen story that has a 10,000 word chapter.
