Centuries ago, the dread demon lord known as Aku was on the verge of being destroyed thanks to a brave and noble samurai wielding a powerful magic sword. With the last of his strength, Aku ripped open a hole through time and flung this samurai into it; sending him to the far flung future. A dystopian world where Aku now reigns supreme; tyrant and master of all that he surveys.
Nicknamed as Jack by the downtrodden inhabitants of this era, this samurai warrior had dedicated himself towards freeing this world of Aku's rule while searching for a way back to his own time where he hopes to undo all of Aku's machinations. Aku believes that his powers combined with his legions of followers and advanced technologies will crush this lone rebel in this dark future era far beyond anything he knows. Or so he thinks. Because Aku doesn't know Jack.
