|“Yeah, that definitely looks like a spooky castle where an evil Ice Emperor would live.”|
The Castle of Ice, also known as the Ice Castle, is a location where the Ice Emperor and his army of Blizzard Samurai lived. It was originally the castle of Grimfax but was taken from him by the Ice Emperor who overthrew him. However, he became king once again, following the liberation of the realm.
At some point in time, this Castle formerly belonged to Grimfax who was ruler of the land.
One day, Vex arrived with the proposition of attacking the Formlings but Grimfax refused and ordered him out. Much later, Vex returned with Zane and had him overthrow Grimfax and turn his soldiers into Blizzard Samurai. Zane then took his place, as Ice Emperor and Vex became his loyal advisor. The castle would act as a base of operations.
When Zane was dreaming, he saw a vision of the Ice Castle.
When Zane was in Beohernie's stomach, he saw another vision of the Ice Castle.
Inside the Castle of Ice, General Vex warns the Ice Emperor that strangers that came from another realm had come to look for their prisoner and defy his rule. The Ice Emperor then tells Vex to send the Blizzard Samurai to destroy the Ninja and their allies.
Grimfax returns from his supposed victory, only to be scolded by Vex, who demands the Ice Emperor to punish him, but halfway through, he lets it slide before ordering Boreal to be released. Later, his staff banging disturbs the prisoner, who looks out his cell window to see Boreal leaving.
Boreal was instructed to bring Lloyd to the castle, where he recognized the Ice Emperor as Zane.
Shocked by his discovery, Lloyd tries to get through to Zane and reaches the conclusion that he was corrupted by the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. He tries to convince Zane to drop his scepter but Vex calls him out as a liar. Lloyd then fights back against him and the Blizzard Samurai holding him back to take back Zane's Scepter only for the Ice Emperor to repel him back with his power. Vex expresses his hope to destroy Lloyd but Zane declares that he'd be locked up in the dungeon.
In the dungeon, Lloyd befriends Kataru and tells him that his sister is alive and they will be set free. Grimfax fulfills that wish and the three unite to save Zane and take away the Scroll in his possession.
Meanwhile, Akita makes her way to the palace to get her revenge and easily infiltrates it. Also, the Ninja were closing in on the area until Boreal confronted them.
As Lloyd's group traveled, they were impeded by Vex and his soldiers who had anticipated this course of action and ordered the soldiers attack Kataru and Grimfax while the latter told Lloyd to confront Zane. Grimfax and Kataru then fought off the soldiers.
Akita made it to the throne room where the emperor is seemingly asleep. Drawing her dagger, Akita sneaks up on him to finish him until a noise is heard and the Emperor sees her. A fight breaks out until he froze her arm. Just as he moved to finish her, Lloyd burst in and she was surprised at him calling the emperor "Zane."
Grimfax and Kataru fought the soldiers, before they were defeated by the overwhelming numbers. Grimfax was angry with Vex mocking them before ordering the two to be placed in the dungeon.
Meanwhile, Lloyd and Akita battled Zane who was able to overpower them with his scepter and had them at his mercy.
Lloyd pleaded to Zane while Vex moved to finish the latter himself, when Zane appeared hesitant. After Zane regained his memories, he stopped Vex and destroyed his scepter, returning the castle and realm to normal.
With the Ice Emperor gone, Grimfax took back power as King and was celebrated by his followers. He later consulted with the Formlings on what to do about Vex, before it was decided that he be banished to the outskirts.
