"How to Train a Mysticon" is the second episode of Mysticons. The episode premiered August 29, 2017 on both Nickelodeon in the United States and YTV in Canada.



The second generation of legendary Mysticons, and mid Astromancer Malvaron, head to the Astromancer Academy to begin their training as new protectors of the realm. Their instructor, Tazma, reveals to them the Codex, a very powerful book of ancient spells of light magic that was sealed across the realm for safety.

Having been given a riddle, the Mysticons go to solve it, but are attacked by the Mage who reveals herself to be none other than their own instructor. Arkayna manages to solve the riddle and obtain the very first fragment of the Codex: A medium-sized forest green-colored book of various spells; thus gaining the mystical power of the bright green Dragon Bracer and defeats Tazma.

Back in the Star Chamber, Malvaron Grimm becomes permanent Solon to the second generation of legendary Mysticons, replacing his corrupt elder sister, with his best friend Doug Hadderstorm the Cyclops as his assistant. Needing a base of operation, Emerald takes them to the old, old palace which they choose as their secret stronghold. Princess Arkayna holds up her cellfie and tells the others say "Mysticons" as she naps the picture.

(In a nightmare)

  • Princess Arkayna: "Mysticons, Dreadbane is in the tower!! Where are you!!?"
  • Dreadbane: "No one can help you. This is something you need to face alone."
  • Princess Arkayna: "You mean like that!!?"
  • Dreadbane: "Not exactly."
  • Princess Arkayna: "That's impossible!!"
  • Queen Goodfey's Bone Statue: "How can you protect the realm if you couldn't protect me?"
  • Princess Arkayna: "NO!!"


  • Princess Arkayna: "I'm sorry, Malvaron!! You started me and...You're not gonna tell the others are you?"
  • Malvaron: "The secret says between you, me and the goblin who does my dry-cleaning. Nightmare?
  • Princess Arkayna: "I been having them every night since. Is there any way to undo Dreadbane's magic?"
  • Malvaron: "You're a legendary Mysticon now. If anyone has the power, it's you. And I know just who can help.
  • Princess Arkayna: "Who?"
  • Malvaron: "The Astromancers

  • Zarya: "These growmancers; they're the big cheese are they?"
  • Emerald: "Astromancers- And they're an ancient league of mages that have protected the realm since forever. Yeah, they're kinda a big deal."
  • Zarya: "Whatever."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Hey! They're also the ones who can help save my parents, so I'd appreciate some support."
  • Zarya: "Okay, Princess. I'm just not big on trusting mysterious, creepy authority figures."
  • Malvaron: "I hate to agree with Zarya, but even though these guys are my bosses, creepy is pretty accurate actually. Rumor has it some of the Astromancers have been corrupted, so it's best to keep your identities hidden. Even from them."
  • Princess Arkayna, Piper and Emerald (in wonder): "Whoa."
  • Zarya (sarcastically): "No, not creepy at all."


  • Malvaron: "High Council, we come seeking your help."
  • Nova Terron: "So, these are the new Mysticons."
  • Piper: "Hi. I like your robe. What? He seems nice."
  • Princess Arkayna: "We are the Mysticons, chosen by the Dragon Disk to defend the realm of Gemina."
  • Nova Terron: "What are your names?"
  • Zarya: "Whoa, names are on a need to know."
  • Nova Terron: "Humph."
  • Princess Arkayna: "We're hopeful that the power of the Dragon Disk will free the King and Queen from Dreadbane's curse."
  • Nova Terron: Ha! You're not nearly ready for that kind of power yet."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Please! We have to save my- the Queen."
  • Malvaron: "Come on, Big Nova. Give 'em a shot."
  • Tazma Grimm: "It's Nova Terron, and how dare you question his judgement. Why'd they even let you into this Order?"
  • Malvaron: "Cause I'm a natural. I got talent all your late night book-learning couldn't hope to match."
  • Nova Terron: "Enough."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Your rival?"
  • Malvaron: "Worse: My sister."
  • Nova Terron: "Your training beings immediately. I am assigning you a solon who will help you master your powers."
  • Piper: "Malvaron would make a great solon."
  • Nova Terron: "I have chosen...Tazma."
  • Malvaron: "Of course you'd chose Tazma. Ice queens-in-training."
  • Zarya: "Oh wow. Reverse burn."
  • Tazma: "My brother is talented, but he doesn't always know how much hard work can elevate talent. This is something you will learn."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Solon Tazma, don't you think we should get this training started right away?"
  • Tazma: "Tomorrow at 05:00."

  • Tazma: "Train hard, Mysticons. or once the Dragon Disk is activated, it will lead you to a greater power- A magical book known as the Codex. The Codex is split into four pieces that are scattered across the realm. The Dragon Disk will give you clues to find pieces of the Codex, and each piece will imbue you special powers: The power of the Dragon, the power of the Wolf, the power of the Phoenix and the power of the Unicorn. Once all four pieces of the Codex have been combined, your powers will increase one hundredfold. Just as the original Mysticons used the Codex to destroy old evils- like Necrafa, Queen of the Undead- you must use it to destroy new evils There is hope for...most of you."

Nova Terron: "Pathetic! Your arrogance will be the downfall of your team, Dragon Mage. The forces of evil will rise up and devastate the realm."


  • Princess Arkayna (furious): "Do you have any idea who hard it is to lull those buckets up those stairs!!? My hands hurt, my legs hurt, my hair hurts!! I am the Dragon Mage, leader of the Mysticons!! This in humiliating, not to mention pointless!!"
  • Tazma: "So this is all about you then?"
  • Malvaron: "Have you seen Doug? He was looking for...and I'm interrupting something."
  • Princess Arkayna: "I was just leaving. What are you doing here?"
  • Piper: "We're here to support you."
  • Emerald: "Whatever happens, we're in this together."
  • Princess Arkayna: "You too?"
  • Zarya: "Look, I know what's like to loose family. So if we have a shot at saving the King and Queen, I'm in."
  • Princess Arkayna: "I get it. This isn't about me. It's about all of us, as a team."
  • Tazma: "The Dragon Disk! It senses your commitment."
  • Malvaron: "Sweet! You're first riddle!! Let the quest for the Codex begin."
  • Emerald: "I hate riddles."

The first piece that you do look for is not behind just any door

The most regal of worms is where you will find

Fiery magic through peace of mind

  • Piper: "Most regal of worms? Ewe."
  • Zarya: "Nah, I think it means dragons. The most regal..."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Would be the Queen of the Dragons! The ancient statue of Auratha, in Drake Central Station. Mount up, Girls!"
  • Tazma: "You worked hard for this. Just make sure your team works as hard as you do."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Thanks for pushing me, Solon Tazma. I won't let you down."
  • Tazma: "May the star of Gygax guide you on your quest. And may it guide you over a cliff."


  • Piper: "That's the creepy shadow mage who tried to foz-nab Choko!!"
  • Zarya: "Arkayna, that mage works for Dreadbane!!"
  • Princess Arkayna: "Dreadbane? Tazma!! You work for Dreadbane!!?"
  • Tazma: "Sorry to hear about the royal family. Collateral damage. Nothing personal, but I toiled for years under the Astromancers. Now I have the power."
  • Princess Arkayna: "This was all just a game to you? You helped me so you could betray me?"
  • Tazma: "So you could activate the Dragon Disk. Now I have the power."
  • Piper: "You can't tell, but I'm making a rude elfin hand gesture right now."
  • Tazma: "It was a pleasure being your Solon."


  • Tazma: "With the power of the Codex, what happened to the King and Queen is child's pay. It's my time now."
  • Princess Arkayna: "No! It's our time!! Mysticons, punch a hole now!!"
  • Tazma: "So naive, Dragon Mage. So easy to manipulate. So easy to destroy."
  • Princess Arkayna: "Looking for this?"
  • Tazma: "NOOOO!!!"
  • Princess Arkayna: "Unleash the Dragon!!"
