Hyunckel and Crocodine are held captive by the Dark Army in "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 60. The new episode is titled "Dai and Popp."

The official promo trailer of Episode 60 shows Crocodine and Hyunckel, who are missing, in a prison cell and being monitored by the Dark Army. Meanwhile, Dai has returned after parting with his father, Baran.

Dai’s injuries are healing, but memories of his crushing defeat against Dark Vearn continue to torment him. However, Popp and the others believe that Dai will rise again.

In Episode 59 of "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" anime, the Dark Army was rampaging all over the world as Dai and his friends were defeated by Dark King Vearn.

Meanwhile, Zaboera was in awe of Vearn’s power. He was happy that the Dark King granted him the position of second-in-command for the Dark Army. He was glad he cut ties with Hadlar.

However, Mystvearn, his trusted ally, was not ready to listen to anything bad about Hadlar. He warned Zaboera that he mustn’t badmouth him. Mystvearn added that he will not hesitate to kill Zaboera.

Elsewhere, Dai and his friends were separated after losing the battle against Vearn. Dai was taken by the Holy Mother Dragon while Popp and Maam found themselves in Carl Kingdom.

“Dai and his friends faced absolute defeat. Dai is taken away by the Holy Mother Dragon and Hyunckel and Crocodine are missing. Popp and Maam wash up on a beach in Carl Kingdom.
