Les Pyjamasques are flying to the rescue of Tatouro'Tom, who has just been captured by Robot. But they arrive too late to prevent Roméo from transferring the armadillo's powers to his turbo-lab!
They will have to find another way than force to prevent Roméo from becoming the master of the world.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Armadylan'd and Dangerous":
The episode starts off with Connor, Amaya, and Greg playing hide-and-seek by headquarters. Greg finds Amaya behind the bushes and Connor behind the structure, but they also find a note posted there of Armadylan in trouble. That night, the PJ Masks take a closer look at the note and check the security cameras for any possibility that someone else must have written it to lure them into a trap. The footage confirms that Romeo led Armadylan into a trap the other night, but nothing is confirmed about who wrote the note. They do know that Armadylan is in trouble, though, and he needs their help.
The PJ Masks head into town in the Gekko-Mobile. In the air, Owlette spots Armadylan on the outside of Romeo’s lab. Romeo comes out when the team corners him at the museum. Preparing his Vacuum of Doom, he explains he’s been draining Armadylan’s powers since he and Robot captured him. Now that he has those powers, he doesn’t need Robot anymore; he can transfer them into his lab so he can have a super vehicle of his own.
Romeo proceeds to do just so. Catboy tries to stop him, only for Gekko to catch him when he bounces off the lab after it generates a force field. The vehicle is now indestructible, which means Romeo can tear down the town and rebuild it into Romeopolis. He goes back into his lab and tests out Armadylan’s Rolling Thunder. Knowing that he has his Super Strength, Gekko holds down the vehicle with his Super Lizard Grip. It is too strong, however; Romeo is able to escape his grasp. The team proclaims that they have to find another way to stop the villain. Gekko just gets back in the Gekko-Mobile, and Catboy and Owlette soon follow.
The team follows Romeo to the park as he continues destroying all the things in his way. Robot suddenly comes in from above, forcing them to stop where they are. He reveals that he was the one who wrote the note. While he did help Romeo capture Armadylan, he never knew he could be of no use to him anymore. If the PJ Masks could stop Romeo, save Armadylan, and give him back his powers, then he would be needed again. The team comforts him and asks him for his help, but Gekko declines it. Despite the fact that Romeo is too strong, he is still confident that he can beat Romeo with his Super Strength.
Gekko catches up with Romeo’s lab as Armadylan tries to break himself free and cheers him on. He uses his Super Gekko Shields to tip over the vehicle, but Romeo pushes him out of the way using Armadylan’s Thunder Thump. He escapes using Armadylan’s tunneling power as everyone else catches up to Gekko. Gekko admits everyone is right; Romeo is too strong to be overpowered. However, they can still defeat him if they outsmart him. Owlette contacts PJ Robot to bring up Romeo’s location, while Gekko thinks about what Robot can do to help out.
A few moments later, Romeo tunnels back to the museum and takes a look at the building. At the same time, the PJ Masks drive over there with the Camouflage feature enabled while Robot waits from behind. Romeo starts driving towards the museum to demolish it so he can have a place to build his fortress. He crashes into the Gekko-Mobile, which reappears, and Gekko uses its Swing-and-Fling feature to flip the lab upside down.
Robot comes in and turns the vehicle right side up again. As Gekko silences Armadylan before he could ask what the others are doing, Robot asks Romeo to say “thank you” while he presses the button to drain Armadylan’s powers from the lab. The PJ Masks distract Romeo with their powers, which he finds amusing since he can easily defeat him with his lab. The powers are soon returned to Armadylan, though, and he breaks free of the chains.
Armadylan prepares to bring Romeo to justice with his Super Strength. Gekko tells him that being smart is better than being strong, and that means disabling the Vacuum of Doom instead of going after the villain. Romeo attempts to zap Owlette to steal her powers; fortunately, Catboy gets an idea that requires some Super Strength. He ties his Cat Stripes onto two poles, and Gekko and Armadylan fire themselves off. They take out the machine with their combined strength, and Armadylan throws it far away.
Defeated, Romeo tells Robot to help him retreat. He tells the heroes that he will get them next time, and the two take off, but not before Robot waves them goodbye, happy that he is needed again. The kids wave goodbye as well, and they proclaim the signature victory phrase, ending the episode.
