With instruction from the unknown figure, the children head for the Forest Terminal, stopping at a Candlemon Village familiar with the Legendary Warriors.
Parting ways with Koji, the DigiDestined discover a Trailmon (Franken) who can take them back to the Human World. They all decide to stay and head out of town, with Bokomon and Neemon following. While traveling on the tracks, their D-Tectors speak to them, telling them to go to the Forest Terminal. The DigiDestined follow the Trailmon tracks until they reach a small valley where the tracks break.
On the valley walls, they discover the ten symbols of the Ten Legendary Warriors. Bokomon regales the DigiDestined with the tale of the Digital World's past, where humanoid and beast Digimon fought for control over the world. The angel Lucemon came and brought peace, but he eventually grew corrupt and was overthrown by the Ten Legendary Warriors. These Legendary Warriors left Spirits behind to rise again when trouble came.
The DigiDestined are then ambushed by a group of Candlemon, who accuse them of trying to steal their legendary artifact. Bokomon tells them that Takuya inherited the H Spirit of Flame, and the Candlemon Elder invites them to a ceremony in their Candlemon Village. It is all a trick to put them to sleep, and amid attacks from the Candlemon, they escape to the river. Takuya offers himself as a distraction to let the others get away, and the other three stumble on an ice cave as Agunimon fights off the Candlemon. When Agunimon gets himself trapped, however, Tommy recalls how Takuya protected him and attempts to aid him in turn. The H Spirit of Ice chooses Tommy at this point, allowing him to spirit evolve to Kumamon. He takes out one Candlemon, but the other digivolves to Wizardmon.
Wizardmon uses illusions to trick Agunimon, eventually forming copies of himself. Kumamon sees through his technique because only the real Wizardmon has a shadow, which allows Agunimon to take him out. The scanned fractal code turns into the broken bridge, which allows Koji and the Trailmon he is riding on to traverse the valley. The Candlemon apologize, as their intent was to see if Takuya truly had a Spirit.

"Neemon, don't just stand there like a cheap T.V. antenna, I need your help, say something!"
"Are you really that dense, or do you just do that to annoy me?"
- —Bokomon's frustration with Neemon will never end.
- In the recap the narrator claims that Kumamon fought and defeated the whole Candlemon clan and Wizardmon. However he only fought two members of the clan and defeated one of them, the second digivolved into Wizardmon who was then defeated by Agunimon.
- In the English dub, in the moment immediately after receiving the Spirit and immediately before Spirit Evolution, Ophanimon's voice comes from the D-Tector and says, "It is time."
- The title is a reference to The Doors song "Light My Fire".
- When the Candlemon elder invites the kids to the village, he says, "Be our guest," an allusion to the 1991 Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, which features a song with the same name. One of the lead singers of that song is Lumière, who takes the form of a candelabra, which is not dissimilar thematically from the Candlemon.
