King Triton, and the other residents from Atlantica are very happy to know that their hero Apollo is returning home. Ariel and Flounder ask Triton who he is, and Triton explains: 20 years ago during the Sargasso War, Atlantica was in a battle between the Octipins who contained a trident that was more magically powerful than King Triton's trident. Apollo, in the vines, snuck up on them and broke it. After the story, Apollo appears. He and Ariel go on an adventure, but Ariel and Flounder soon find out that his victory over the Atlanticans was an accident. Ursula revives the Octipins and gives them eight magic tridents; now Apollo must become a real hero.
