On a planet known only as the World, many species have evolved into humanoid(anthropomorphic) and sentient beings. They have mastered the ability to control fire, wood, and water, and carry such emblems on their chests. For years they fought as warriors, but now there is only peace.

Horny Toad, Gargantuan Gorilla, and Knight Owl, representing water, wood, and fire, respectively, are selected for this year's sign ceremony, and they, as the others, don ceremonial armor to this end. Four beasts, led by Chameleon, the only beast with the power to change his sign, interrupt this ceremony and cause the planet to erupt in madness and the constant changing of signs.

The Soulspirit instructs the three sign bearers on how to reverse the madness, using the combined might of water, wood, and fire, but the only way to keep the signs from randomly changing is to find the Sunburst Warrior.
