Shortly after the end of the Oni's invasion, P.I.X.A.L. had been working on the hangar bay for six months. She also built the Land Bounty, Rock Cycle, and the ATV. During construction, the ninja didn't notice anything due to them being lazy.
The ninja were planning to go to the Desert of Doom on a quest and before they did, P.I.X.A.L. told them about the vehicles she built. After exploring the hangar bay, they took the Land Bounty as well the Rock Cycle and the ATV into the Desert of Doom. After some traveling, The ninja parked their vehicles in an oasis where they relaxed until they encountered Beohernie. They tried to escape him, but the beetle ingested a critical engine part that the Land Bounty could not run without.
Zane was eaten by Beohernie and was able to get the engine part back. After obtaining the component, the ninja placed the Rock Cycle and the ATV in the Land Bounty while using the Land Bounty to flee from the Beohernie.
Along with the Land Bounty and the Rock Cycle, the ninja arrive with their vehicles to save the Police Commissioner and his crew when they were surrounded by Elemental Cobras.
