In AD 619, Emperor Yang of the Sui Dynasty rules China with an iron fist. During this period of unrest, legends foretold of a Red Star that would open the Mark of the Heavens and bring about the apocalypse. To combat the opening of the Mark, a scion of royalty would be born and seal it with the Xuan-Yuan Sword.

The happy-go-lucky Chen Jingchou (Jiang Jinfu), last prince of the fallen Chen Dynasty, is burdened with the avenging and resurrection of his realm, but he merely wishes a happy life. His long suffering attendant, Chen Fu, who accompanies him on his travels discovers that the fastest way to restoring the empire is to gather five mysterious artifacts, which will grant the wielder untold power. Under Chen Fu's relentless encouragement, Chen begins the quest to gather these artifacts. However, his quest forces him to face Yuwen Tuo, a golden armored and masked warrior who single-handedly destroyed the Chen's armies at the age of 10 while wielding the legendary Xuan-Yuan Sword.

Yuwen Tuo (Hu Ge), outwardly a ruthless warrior, is also the last prince of the fallen Northern Zhou Dynasty. At the fall of his dynasty, Yuwen's father was killed in battle and his mother taken hostage in the Sui palace. To save his mother, Yuwen chose the unorthodox path of joining the Sui Dynasty and becoming a feared assassin for the regime that destroyed his kingdom. His only hope lay in the same five mysterious artifacts that Chen sought. Their quests brought them together and in a twist of fate, the two who would be enemies become friends. On their journey, they meet Taba Yu'er, princess of a desert tribe (Cecilia Liu), Dugu Ningke (Tiffany Tang), princess of Sui and Yu Xiaoxue (Guli Nazha), the daughter of the goddess Nüwa, who would grow to love Yuwen Tuo.

After many trials and tribulations, the artifacts are gathered but Yuwen Tuo betrays Jing Chou and sacrifices the love that had grown between him and Xiao Xue, by stealing the artifacts. In a twist, the truth behind the artifacts is revealed. Ning Ke, who appeared to be the niece of Emperor Yang, was in actuality the daughter of the Demon Lord who had been sent to spy on those who would gather the artifacts. Yuwen Tuo, believing that the artifacts would save his mother, had in fact been acting according to the Demon Lord's plot to use the artifacts to open the Mark of the Heavens.

Having been betrayed by his friend, Chen Jingchou succumbs to hatred and, falling under the Demon Lord's sway, sets forth to kill Yuwen Tuo to avenge his betrayal and Yu'er's death. However, to save their world, the two eventually put aside their vendettas and seal the Mark of the Heavens.
