[[ALongTimeAgo Long ago]], the young prince of an island kingdom watches as the demon Aku emerges into the world and lays waste to his entire realm. The boy escapes with the help of his mother, and spends his life training rigorously with warriors from around the world. Once he comes of age, he returns to his homeland a full-fledged samurai warrior to defeat Aku, armed with the only weapon that can harm the demon - a magic sword passed down to him by his father. But, as the [[OpeningNarration opening monologue]] states, Aku flings him into the distant future, where Aku has conquered the entire world and beyond.

As a young boy, the titular samurai watches as the demon Aku emerges into the world and lays waste to the boy's entire kingdom. The samurai escapes with the help of his mother, then spends years training with warriors from around the world. As an adult, the samurai returns to his kingdom so he can defeat Aku, but as the [[OpeningNarration opening monologue]] states, Aku flings the samurai many years into the future. Thanks to the absence of the samurai, Aku has gained control over the entire world (and possibly others). The displaced samurai adopts an alias of Jack [[NamedByDemocracy inspired by jive-talking locals]] and travels the world once more, this time searching for a way back to his own time so he can defeat Aku for good and prevent this future from ever happening. The problem is that while Jack has the means to defeat Aku in more or less any one-on-one fight, the evil space demon has turned Earth into a clearinghouse for dangerous people from elsewhere in the universe, and the planet is crawling with hostile aliens, as well as refugees from those aliens, whom Aku is extorting. Jack is literally surrounded by too many enemies to fight directly, and too many helpless victims to aid while still searching for a way home.

Cartoon Network ended the show after four seasons and fifty-two episodes, with Jack still trying to find his way back to the past. However, Creator/{{Toonami}} aired reruns during the block's third, fourth and final CN-era incarnations, and Creator/AdultSwim's version of the block starting in February 2014. A DVD rerelease of the series began in the same year. Further, creator IDW had a 20 issue ComicBookAdaptation that ran from October 2013 to May 2015, with a last issue that had it's own BolivianArmyEnding / DistantFinale to the series.[[note]](Jack and Aku also appeared in the IDW CrisisCrossover comic book event ''ComicBook/CartoonNetworkSuperSecretCrisisWar'', released in June 2014.)[[/note]]
