Synopsis Edit

The Ultimate Class is a class designed specifically for students who have been rejected by other high schools for trouble-making. The strongest student, Wang Da Dong acts as their leader and everyone in that class is bound to answer to him. When a gangster leader's son, Wang Ya Se; and the legendary king of fighters, Ding Xiao Yu join the class, they become best pals out of some fruitous events. The three of them are top five KO Ranked fighters with extraordinary powers, which attracts more trouble as more people come to challenge them. Among one of them is Da Dong's childhood best friend, Lei Ke Si, who has been pretending to be a weak and kind-hearted boy to hide the fact that he is also one of the top 5 KO Ranked fighters. Ya Se is the first to figure out his true identity and intentions, but because Da Dong thinks of Lei Ke Si as his best friend, he refuses to believe him. And after various mischiefs lead to Ya Se being the culprit, his friendship with Da Dong turns hostile.

Aside from the every day challenges, the trio also face problems in their personal lives, as Xiao Yu falls in love with Da Dong's girlfriend, Huang An Qi, and their loyalty is put on trial.

After going through these events, the last thing they need is to face off their ultimate enemy, who has been building his power by collecting minions and destroying powerful martial artists. In the end, Da Dong, Ya Se, Xiao Yu, and their returned friend, Lei Ke Si, all work together to defeat their enemy, Hei Long, but lose their powers in the process.
