The Warrior Within is the 3rd episode in the Legends of Chima and the 3rd episode in season 1.
During the weekly distribution of CHI, Laval is shocked when his Lagravis gives Cragger some of the CHI orbs even though the crocodiles had previously attacked them. His father says that every tribe in Chima gets CHI even if the tribes aren't friendly toward them saying this is an important rule. Laval still thinks that Cragger doesn't deserve any CHI and goes after them and demands they give back the CHI. Crooler (still controlling her brother) makes him hand over the CHI and they return to their tribe saying that the lions didn't want them to have any CHI. Hearing this all of the crocs become angry. Eris meets Laval and makes him realize his mistake and they attempt to fix it by returning the CHI to the tribe in person. However, Cragger taunts him to openly refusing to give back the CHI causing the crocodiles to attack the two of them. Not knowing what to do with the CHI now, Laval tosses it into the bottomless chasm and along with Eris attempts to find the legend beast hoping it will save them once again. Instead, they are rescued by reinforcements from the eagles and lions forcing Cragger to retreat due to the wolves and ravens not showing up. Laval sees the legend beast appear briefly and wonders if it did not help him because he took the CHI away from the crocodiles or because he threw it away. Everyone is shocked when an earthquake shakes the ground and Eris is concerned as there hasn't been one like this for many years. Later as the two of them make their way home they spot their gorilla friend Gorzan plant a flower that he had been protecting for the whole day. Unknown to Laval and Eris, he had got into a fight with the wolves and the ravens causing them to be late.
Errors & Goofs
- As Gorzan angrily goes to Razar because he plucked and tried to sell the flower that Gorzan was guarding, Razar is shown to be a lot smaller than normal, making Gorzan tower over him menacingly.
- Laval's actions in this episode would have grave consequences for all of Chima in the later episodes.
