A short time after Daimajin's victory in the first film, the Daimajin spirit has taken residence as his statue form on an island in the middle of a lake. On the shores of the lake lie two villages, Chigusa and Nagoshi. These two villages are bordered by a third, home to an evil lord. The citizens flee to Chigusa as often as they can, and make their way there, where the lords are only too happy to take in the refugees. One day the evil lord decides to take over the two villages, and he sees a window of opportunity in a festival that is held every year. Knowing of the risk Daimajin would present, the lord sends his soldiers to detonate the statue using explosives. A group of people are singled out by the lord's forces and eventually reach the submerged remains of Daimajin statue, and ask for his help in the situation. Now awakened, The spirit takes back his physical form, and travels to the lord's village and attacks. Laying waste to the area, he kills the lord and his allies, before returning to his spirit form and departing from the lake's shores.
