While exploring a cave one day, a man discovered a beast frozen in ice. A group is gathered to pull the block of ice home, and subsequently into the sun where it begins to melt. Once it is free from its icy prison, the tyrannosaurus goes on a rampage and sets its sights on the town.

Suddenly, a mysterious man in strange clothing appears. He uses a strange and powerful weapon that shoots bits of metal to help the citizens defeat the beast. It then lays down in pain before being approached by a princess crowned with a scarab gem. She touches the tyrannosaurus' head and suddenly it is revived and tame. The citizens celebrate around a bonfire as the princess takes a ride on the back of the tyrannosaurus.

Afterwards, a strange machine is activated that opens two portals.
