Western Animation: Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword
Thirteenth direct-to-video Scooby-Doo film produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Scooby-Doo and the Samurai Sword was (thus far) the final production animated in the same style as What's New, Scooby-Doo?; in addition, this film featured Casey Kasem's final voice work as Shaggy (though he would continue to work in the Scooby-Doo franchise as the voice of Shaggy’s father Colton until the show's end), though interestingly enough, on European releases, Shaggy is voiced by Scott Innes, who provided the voice for the character in Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders and Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase. As of now, the movie is the last time the monster is of purely supernatural origin.

So, we have the Scooby Doo Gang coming to Tokyo, Japan so Daphne can compete in a martial arts contest at a prestigious school. Before heading to the school in a fully functioning robotic plane, they meet up with Daphne's friend Miyumi, who is also a student. However, at the tournament, Mr. Takagawa, the curator at a Tokyo museum of ancient history, tries explaining to Mirimoto, the head of the tournament, that an ancient evil known as the Black Samurai has risen, and will be after a scroll in the school known as the Destiny Scroll. That night, the Black Samurai and his ninja robots attack during a feast, stealing what he thinks is the destiny scroll, but is actually only a copy.
Now, there is a race between the gang and the Black Samurai. After Velma solves the riddle of the scroll, they realize they must get to an ancient sword, known as the Sword of Doom before the Black Samurai.
