Popp and the others are desperately looking for Dai who still remains missing. In "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 45, suddenly a villain appears and he wants to kill Dai. The new episode is titled "The Orichalcum Warrior."

The official preview trailer for "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 45 is out. The promo shows Popp’s party looking for clues that will lead them to Dai. They are hovering over the ocean to see if they can locate him.

Meanwhile, Zaboera arrives and announces he wants to kill Dai and grow as a warrior. Zaboera and his sidekicks attack Popp and his friends. The battle between the two sides begins.

During the battle, Zaboera gets desperate and uses a powerful Super Spell against his opponents. As the battle gets intense, a mysterious warrior appears in shining armor.

In the previous episode, Popp blamed himself for losing Dai after the latter’s battle against Haldar ended in a draw.

However, there was still hope because Dai wasn’t dead but only missing. Meanwhile, Killvearn challenged Popp for a duel.

Popp, instead of fighting Killvearn, decided to conserve his powers and run away from the villain. He wanted to inform others about Killvearn’s evil plans. Moreover, Popp needed the power to rescue Dai, who was missing in the ocean.

“Dai and Hadlar’s battle ended in a draw, with Dai lost in the ocean. Killvearn attacks the despondent Popp. Popp remembers the words of Matoriv and retreats, but Killvearn pursues. Can Popp escape? And what happened to Dai...?” read the synopsis of Episode 44, according to Crunchyroll.
