High Five's childhood dreams come true when the pizza arcade brings back a retired birthday party robot. But it's the miserable opposite for Miko.
The Joystick Junior Arcade announces the return of mascot Ralphie Bear, who 10 years earlier was destroyed by the "Birthday Ruiner" and never seen again. Phil assigns Dream Team to inspect the Arcade before opening for Glitch activity, but Five takes advantage of the opportunity to have a Ralphie Bear show, never having the chance to as a kid. But upon activation, the Cakey von Smasher robot Glitches and Miko destroys Ralphie in reflex. As their gauntlets cannot stop Cakey, they flee and barricade themselves in a storage room for safety, and then realize the Glitch is protected in the robot's head. Miko admits to destroying Ralphie Bear 10 years earlier in reflex from the jump scare arrival and ruining a birthday party she was invited to; Five apologizes to her, too focused on his own grief to consider younger Miko's experience. Realizing Cakey is following the show program, Miko dresses up as Ralphie Bear and the duo fight the Cakey robot to TKO the Glitch. They inform the arcade owner, who admits he mothballed Ralphie due to numerous complaints from everyone over the years. Phil arrives to trade in unused arcade tickets, but also reflex destroys Ralphie on sight.
