Note: The entire Patapon Trilogy is based upon Shinto, the oldest Japanese religion.
Creation of the World
- The world was born from a mysterious source known as "IT".
- A powerful object named the “World Egg” was manifested in order to hold the world together and block demons from coming into the world without summoning.
- The realm of "IT" becomes known as Earthend.
- Several beasts known as Demons or Devils appeared in a place named the “Underworld”, separate from the "mortals". They can only come to the mortal world when summoned from that side.
- A single dominant tribe named ”The Patapon Tribe” appeared in a place now called Pata-Pole. They conquered most of the Ancient World, led by the “Almighty Patapon”, who used sacred war drums to guide the Patapons. Their goal is to see IT at Earthend, which is believed to grant them eternal happiness.
- The Patapons fought and destroyed the ancient Ah-ooh civilization. Only General Buzzcrave, General Slogturtle, King Ighl and Prince Sonarch survived, who turned into Dark Heroes at a later time in history.
Downfall of the Patapons
- The Patapons discover the World Egg and become its guardians.
- The Karmen tribe appears.
- The leader of the Karmen Tribe, Ormen Karmen, tricks a single Wakapon into breaking the World Egg. The world is split apart, and an evil hulk of mass called the Evilmass of Adamance oozes forth into the world, allowing the free passage of lesser demons into our world.
- As a result of the World Egg being destroyed, the Almighty Patapon disappears along with three of the four sacred war drums. The Wakapon who broke the Egg leaves Pata-Pole in shame and dons a mask which gives him special powers in exchange for his memory.

- A great battle ensues, leaving hundreds dead and thousands more wounded- the worst casualties in history. Manboth species declines into an endangered species (save for a few who will become ancestral guardians), shortening the Patapons' food supply during the winter and weakening their troops further.
- The Zigotons crush the weakened Patapons and exile them to a distant country (setting of Patapon 1) for about a millennium. In that time, the Patapon civilization shrinks to a small village of demoralized peasants, but the legends of Earthend and their ancestors' exploits keeps their warrior spirit alive.
- Zigotons establish their own civilization on the shores of the new country, watching over the Patapons to ensure they never march again. They construct many fortresses and outposts across the land, including a great wall around the borders of the Patapons' village, now named Patapolis.

- Ton, Chin, Kan and Hatapon are teleported to a strange land while Uberhero is lying asleep and given three wishes.
- One of three things can then happen (though the true ending is the third).
- FIRST OPTION: The Uberhero asks Silver Hoshipon to breathe life into him, allowing him to continue fighting. You can then play as a Dark Hero.
- SECOND OPTION: The Uberhero asks Silver Hoshipon to let him die in peace, opening a portal to an ancient chamber beneath the Tomb of Tolerance.
- THIRD OPTION: The Uberhero asks that he be sacrificed so the Patapons (and Meden!) may live. Meanwhile, Ton, Chin, Kan, and Hatapon explore the strange land. Silver Hoshipon tells those Patapons that they have arrived in Earthend. Silver Hoshipon also reveals that "IT" is Hope, which is in turn Silver Hoshipon himself. Silver Hoshipon uses his last ounce of energy to restore the shattered Earthend to it's former glory, and then he fades. HOWEVER, in the Hideout, Silver Hoshipon had talked to Meden. She said that they would start a new quest for Earthend. They built a new Patapon village just outside the Hideout. However, Meden hasn't been told that the other three Patapons arrived in Earthend.
Even in light of all this, you can still play the game as normal (this doesn't affect the way you chose the story to end). If you defeat Arch Pandara's more powerful form, Dark Pondora, you can choose an alternative story ending and gain the effects of any endings you all ready chose in addition to the new one. This way you can effectively gain all of the special items from the three endings (Dark Hero Mode, the special dungeon, and the Patapons).
