This tournament aired in Autumn 2001 and is the first tournament with rain on the course. Because of the rain on the course, it was difficult for some of the challengers to clear the course. Makoto Nagano then-future Grand Champion returned to Ninja Warrior for a second run on the Ninja Warrior course, but could still not get past the Warped Wall.
