When Ryan, J.B., and Kaitlin take foster children to the mountains for Christmas, they meet one of Santa's elves, Otto. Some of the foster kids don't believe the elf, especially young Ian, but Ryan, JB, and Kaitlin do. Otto goes back to the dojo with the group so the Troopers can figure out how to reunite him with Santa. Skugs, however, kidnap the elf to the Dark Fortress and coerce him to grant Grimlord's wish--"Destroy the VR Troopers!" Otto won't give in and, instead, tricks Grimlord to wish him back to the dojo, just in time for the Christmas party. Ryan's Christmas wish is granted when Tyler Steele arrives with Santa, having gotten a ride on his sled. Santa has presents for everyone, including a new bow staff for J.B. And Kaitlin's wish is granted when it begins to snow. Everybody believes in Santa now, even young Ian, who got to pull Santa's whiskers to make sure they were real.
