The Road to War is the second episode of Schm2000's "Rise of YouTube". It is the first video where another person besides Schm2000 (Starman3) made scenes for that video, specifically the opening scene. The episode is 16 minutes and 9 seconds long.
Spoilers start here!
Starman3 lands in the Fourth Dimension after being hit by Death Trapper 1's blast. He notices that Quario and Fourigi are gone, probably to fight Dowser, and meets Starman4. SM4 explains that the Death Trappers are as strong as the Blooper Stoppers and that SM3 can take them down easily. After saying "May the Super Star be with you," SM4 teleports SM3 back into the Mushroom Kingdom. SM3 finds Captain back at home, who tells SM3 that he scared off DT1 and that the Death Trappers have taken over the dimensional pathways. When SM3 walks into the Clock Room, he finds Death Trapper 2 waiting for him. SM3 uses his Fire Star and kills DT2 after a long battle.
Meanwhile, Schm finds SMUS inside Star Leap Tower and is shocked to learn that he and DragonBallZKai5 were blasted off into Star Road with Schm. Dragon is missing, however, so both Schm and SMUS search in Large Leaf Forest and Melting Snow Peaks for him. During the search, Schm breaks the fourth wall when he complains about how long the video is. It turns out that Dragon is in Mars, the Death Trapper's base of operations and Cui's ex-base. The Martian King finds Dragon, reveals himself as Cui's master, and prepares to battle Dragon.
