The Ninja arrived at Torchfire Mountain to destroy the Fangblades and ensure that the Great Devourer was never released from imprisonment. However, before they could throw the Fangblades into the volcano, Pythor sabotaged the ship's engines, causing it to tilt. The Ninja and Sensei Wu almost fell into the volcano, but Nya caught them with her Samurai Mech.
- Torchfire Mountain bears a few similarities to Mount Doom, a volcano from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Both are large, active volcanoes found in a harsh wasteland, and the only place in their respective worlds where the heroes can destroy a powerful artifact (the Fangblades/the One Ring) needed to revive a great evil (the Great Devourer/Sauron).
