A nuclear war has put the Earth into chaos. The survivors are now put into two groups: the strong and the weak. The strong prey on the weak, and all the weak can do is pray for a savior. Raoh arrives in a town, as he intends to rule the world and bring peace to these troubled times. He is confronted by a gang, but he quickly slaughters their leader and then most of the members, letting one man live so he can tell others of Raoh. Raoh then meets Souga, his strategist. Souga and his sister Reina have found a castle which would be an ideal place for them to live. Souga and Reina later enter this castle, which belongs to a martial artist called Goram. Souga pretends to be a musician, whilst Reina dances for Goram. Goram likes them, especially Reina, and says they can stay here.

However he really wants to see more of Reina, and is about to strip her when a man runs in saying someone is causing trouble outside. This man is Raoh, who enters this castle and confronts Goram. Their is a brief battle between the two, but Goram's fighting style is useless against what Raoh has mastered: Hokuto Shinken. Raoh uses a secret technique of his style, Hokuto Goushou Ha (North Star Iron Palm Wave) to defeat Goram.

Raoh now has the castle, and he, Reina and Souga convince Goram's troops to follow Raoh, and tell them that Raoh is to be known as "Ken-Oh" (King of Fist) from now on. Just before he dies, Goram warns Raoh that he will never defeat the Holy Emperor. Souga does not know who that is, but Raoh tells him that it doesn't matter -he'll be dealt with in the same way anyone else who goes against him will be -he will be defeated. Outside the castle, a woman has been watching. She says that she will watch Raoh's journey from this point, and then she vanishes.

-There are several differences in this episode, most of them quite minor. Click here for a full list.


-There ought to be a colossal crashing sound effect for the building Raoh takes down when he kills the gang leader, but no noise is ever heard.
