Less that 2 months after the events of Twilight's Kingdom Part 2, life in Equestria has returned to normal. However, a cult uses an artifact called the "Rainbow of Darkness" to free Lord Tirek from his prison and restore his power to him. The cultist's plan succeeds, and Tirek is freed. He dispatches Cerberus and leaves Tatarus, intent on taking over Equestria. However, before he can get far, Scorpan intervenes.
Tirek wins the ensuing battle (albiet barely) and encases Scorpan in stone. He then realizes that Twilight Sparkle and her friends will simply use their rainbow powers to seal him back in Tartarus if he returns. He then decides to steal power from dragons and griffons before attempting to take over Equestria. Scorpan telepahically calls out to Twilight Sparkle and the others.
Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity, Spike and Discord enjoy lunch at Twilight's castle with Princesses Celestia and Luna. Scorpan successfully contacts them and warns them Tirek is free. He also tells them that Tirek has all of the powers he had prior to his most recent defeat and of his plan to steal the power from dragons and griffons.
Rainbow Dash and Twilight epress their despair, saying "even with [their] new rainbow powers..." "[they]'re all just the north side of useless," respectively, but Scorpan tells them that there is another way to stop Tirek; music. He tells them that Tirek has hated music since he was young, and that if they utilize this weakness, they have a chance to stop him
He expains that his plan is for the 8 of them (the mane six, Spike, and Discord) to use music to release the "music warriors" within them. He explains that he can give them the knowledge of how to play various music instruments and the a special power to assist them in their quest, but also that he can do no more from his stone prison. He then explains that, once they have played enough songs, they shall transform into warriors and their powers will be improved, and that once all 8 of them have done this, they'll need to team up and use their new powers to weaken Tirek and free him from his stone prison. He ends the summary of his plan by saying that, once he is free, the 8 of them will play one final song while he fights Tirek, and that, with their music his muscles combined, they can finish Tirek off once and for all.
Although skeptical, the 8 of them agree.
Chapter 1: Rainbow Dash
Rainbow Dash volunteers to go first. After making her way to a small club where she and 3 other ponies will play music transform her into a warrior, Scorpan gives her a brief explanation of what she needs to do; play 7 songs of her choice to gain enough power to transform into her warrior form, and then play an encore of her choice to test her upgraded warrior power. He then provides her with a special watch that shows her various things that will assist her in her performance and gives her a brief explanation of what each feature of her watch does. He then tells her about her warrior power and the effects it will have on her performance. He also tells her about how its effects will be boosted once she has transformed. Once she has learned all of this information, Rainbow Dash begins her concert. After completing all 7 of her songs, she transforms into her warrior form, with darker fur, bigger wings with razor-sharp feathers, and spikes on her legs. She then plays her encore and returns to Twilight and the others.
