Watch Code Lyoko

Originally made by a French studio, Code Lyoko is an animated series that takes place in two worlds. It uses 2D and 3D animation to tell the story of four friends at a boarding school. Between classes, and sometimes during them, the students must stop a powerful computer virus from taking over and destroying the real world. Jeremie, Odd, Ulrich, and Yumi use a supercomputer to transport to the hidden digital world of Lyoko in order to stop the invasions of XANA. Aelita, resident of Lyoko, assists the friends from inside the digital realm. Their adventures are complicated by the common difficulties of junior high school life.

Lyoko is a digital world that resides in a supercomputer hidden in an abandoned factory. Jeremie accidentally found the supercomputer while looking for some spare parts. Transportation to Lyoko is accomplished with virtualization chambers connected to the supercomputer. Inside Lyoko each hero has a limited amount of Life Points. Loss of these Life Points causes an instant return to the real world. XANA utilizes digital interface towers in Lyoko to launch deadly attacks on the real world. In early episodes XANA is limited to invading inanimate objects such as teddy bears or tractors. This ability is later expanded to include human possession.

Ulrich, Yumi, and Odd transport into Lyoko while Jeremie monitors the supercomputer and XANA's attack on the real world. Each person gains a special ability upon entering Lyoko. They use these powers to combat the monsters sent by XANA. Ulrich uses a samurai sword and gains the ability to multiply to three copies of himself. Yumi wields a pair of metallic fans and gains telekinetic powers. Using her ability tends to drain her significantly. Odd's weapons are a pair of wrist-mounted laser arrow launchers. In Lyoko he has a degree of predictive abilities, getting brief flashes of danger to come. Aelita, as a resident of Lyoko, is able to make changes to the area via song. She is the only one that can enter the interface towers and shut down XANA's invasions.

Deactivation of infected towers stop the attack and block further attempts until another tower becomes infected. This also allows the a short hop back in time to the start of XANA's attack. This removes all evidence of the invasion and gives the friends a chance to slightly improve things in their personal lives. The only thing the temporal reset doesn't change is a death. The dead aren't revived by the time hop.

Code Lyoko Full Episode Guide

  • Odd's parents come by for a visit. The youth grouses about his family to his friends (who are stunned at how nice, in fact, Odd's parents are), preferring to be in conflict with them like every other "normal" teenager. Meanwhile, Xana attacks, using mobile phone to make their owners particularly aggressive, thus fulfilling Odd's wish: his parents, victims of the possessed phones, are now looking to kill their son.

  • A recreation lounge room is unveiled for the students at the academy. William's body double, created by Jeremy to replace the Lyoko prisoner, is elected student manager. Unfortunately, this version of William has a major flaw: he is absolutely daft. With the clone's erratic stupidity attracting unwanted attention, Jeremy urgently runs a program to try and recover the real youth from Lyoko. But a bug stymies the program and Xana takes over the tower that controls William's clone.

  • The Lyoko Warriors return to Siberia in an attempt to finally free William from Xana's clutches. Using data culled by Aelita from the last teleportation of the youth Jeremy is able to create a program to find their imprisoned friend. But in order to bring him home, our heroes will have to accomplish a multitude of tasks in synchronization-no small feat when also faced with the Kolossus... and an entire army of robots!

  • All of Kadic Academy is buzzing: the drummer for the famous rock group, "The Subdigitals"-who just so happens to be the nephew of one of the faculty-is visiting the school. In fact, he is there to hold auditions as part of a promotional operation to discover young musical talent-the winner going on to play the opening set for the Subdigitals's upcoming concert. Aelita, realizing her gifts as a DJ, would love a chance to audition, but she doesn't count on Xana's incessant intentions of kidnapping her...

  • Following their victory against Xana, our heroes gather for one last time to definitively shut down Supercomputer, and in as much put an end to their lives of adventure, danger, and unforgettable experiences... Yet only Yumi seems ready to turn the page: Jeremy, Odd, Ulrich and Aelita clearly don't want these times to end! In re-living some of their most intense and memorable adventures, the now retired Lyoko Warriors come to grips with the end, while Sissi finally unveils their secret...

  • Jeremy and Aelita are inches from creating a virtual ship capable of taking the Lyoko Warriors deep into the World Wide Web. But their success hinges on closely following all aspects of the program's progress, which will terminate the following afternoon. Alas, bad luck strikes as the two students are found working together late into the night in the same room-against academy rules. The two are punished by Headmaster Delmas with detention. How can they expect to properly monitor the program's progress from detention? Worse yet, with Jeremy and Aelita held in the library under Jim's stifling custody, Xana launches an attack against the unfinished ship, threatening to destroy it completely...

  • Patrick Belpois, Jeremy's cousin is a surprise new student enrolled at Kadic Academy. Unlike the rest of the Lyoko Warriors, who find the newcomer interesting and charming, Jeremy has always detested his cousin, and makes this much clearly understood. Sissi takes advantage of the Belpois family feud to try and uncover the secret of our heroes. But soon Xana attacks and things become even more complicated...

  • The Lyoko Warriors are planning a seek-and-destroy mission against the Supercomputer that created the first Replika, discovered on a previous mission in the network. To complete their mission, Jeremy has finished a process he calls "Energizing," a sort of teleportation which allows his friends to be rematerialized anywhere on Earth in the form of a Super Polymorphic Specter. While Yumi and Ulrich keep watch over the Skid, Aelita and Odd find themselves thus materialized deep in the Amazonian jungle...

  • Jeremy is convinced that the band of Lyoko Warriors needs to get into shape to better fight against Xana. Who better than Jim, a former Special Forces drill sergeant, to whip them into shape? Our heroes-including Jeremy-find themselves enlisted in a "commando camp," that soon shows our young recruits where their limits lie! While training, they also have an opportunity to discover more about the life of their drill sergeant gym teacher. But soon enough, Xana attacks... And while Jeremy stays behind to assist a wounded "GI Jim," the Lyoko Warriors will have to apply their newfound skills in order to reach the factory.

  • To teach her biology class about ecosystems, Ms. Hertz brings the entire ninth grade on a camping field trip to an isolated island in the middle of a lake. Only Yumi stays behind at the academy to make up some midterm exams. But Xana craftily takes advantage of the isolation of our heroes to attack the Skid, planning to destroy the vessel. The evil artificial intelligence also creates an aquatic monster trapping the terrified class and the Lyoko Warriors on the island...

  • All of the Lyoko Warriors are headed back to their respective families for the winter holidays... except for Aelita, whose past remains a painful subject, and who chooses instead to stay alone at the academy to better keep an eye on Xana. But just as the young Aelita is alone in her room, she receives a message from her father: he has recreated the family chalet in a "reality bubble" on Lyoko, so that he can finally spend a moment together for the holidays with his daughter.

  • Having given up on the idea of destroying all of the Replikas after discovering how numerous they are, and particularly after the loss of the Skid, Jeremy returns his efforts into multi-agent systems, his only remaining means of defeating Xana. But while hard at work on an anti-Xana program, Franz Hopper again makes contact with our heroes to arrange a meeting on Lyoko. The newly liberated William, trying to return to a normally adjusted life, offers to help the Lyoko Warriors, but is rebuffed by the gang who harbor indelible memories of his possession by Xana. Prepare for the ultimate battle...

  • A return trip to the Amazon laboratory for our heroes, determined to finally destroy once and for all the Supercomputer housed inside. But first, the Lyoko Warriors will have to get past an army of arach-androids created by Xana. As for Odd, he has a modest bet going with his friends...

  • The rest of the gang of Lyoko Warriors has had it up to their ears with Odd's dog, Kiwi. The pup is apparently only good for destroying or fouling other people's belongings. Despite Odd's protests, they reach a common decision to banish the dog for several days in the factory... Meanwhile, as Yumi and Ulrich are at their Penchak Silat class, Xana takes possession of the "other" Kiwi: Kiwi2, - Jeremy's robot dog, now programmed to attack!

  • Aelita finds a photo of herself with Franz Hopper at the Hermitage. Jeremy tries to extract information from the picture, as mathematical formulas are visible on a chalkboard in the background. But the image winds up in the hands of Sissi, who passes the photo on to her father. This rouses the Headmaster's curiosity: what is Aelita doing with the former academy physics professor?! It's up to our heroes to protect Aelita's secret ...

  • For some time now, Xana has been targeting either Jeremy or Aelita in his attacks. This worries Jeremy: if ever the two of them become incapacitated, Ulrich, Yumi and Odd would never be able to use the Supercomputer on their own. While Aelita goes to the final round of auditions held by the Subdigitals, Jeremy tutors his-reluctant-friends how to run the computer. But suddenly, an attack from Xana knocks Jeremy unconscious. With Aelita also absent, Ulrich, Yumi and Odd have no choice but to manage on their own...

  • Sissi hosts a beautiful and glamorous pen-pal from Iceland, a real knockout who drives all of the boys at the academy crazy... Every one of them! But the young girl seems to have eyes only for Odd, stoking tension amongst the gang. Stung, Odd commits an unforgivable betrayal: he reveals the Lyoko Warriors' secret by showing off the Supercomputer to his new prize, with disastrous consequences!

  • Jeremy creates a polymorphic specter of himself to go to phys ed class in order to be left to work undistracted on bringing William back from Lyoko. Jeremy's body double turns out to be far more athletic than the original, to Jim's considerable surprise. But Xana wrests control of the tower Jeremy used to conjure up his clone, and the imposter now poses a serious threat to our heroes. A battle ensues on the now fully reconstructed Lyoko, featuring new, updated gear for the Lyoko Warriors.

  • Pressured by the eager and impatient Lyoko Warriors, Jeremy agrees to launch the virtual ship Skidbladnir on its maiden voyage. Aelita, Ulrich, Yumi and Odd prepare to embark on their first journey as internauts exploring the World Wide Web. But just as our heroes discover the liquid environment of the Digital Sea, a glitch surfaces in the programming and the "Skid" loses its guidance system. The only way to fix the bug is for Jeremy to retrieve necessary materials from his dorm-which is completely locked down in a school-wide fire drill! Trapped in the network, the Lyoko Warriors find themselves faced with a new menace...

  • When William sees Yumi out in the street in the middle of the night, his curiosity is piqued. He's determined to find out what she's up to! He starts investigating and discovers the factory and comes bursting into the computer lab where Jeremy is busily working. Our local Einstein immediately prepares a "return to the past" to make William forget his new discovery. Unfortunately, just before he can launch it, a tower is activated on Lyoko... XANA has launched an attack and it's impossible to go back to the past before the tower is deactivated! A witness to all of our heroes' secret activities, William ends up lending a hand... and proving himself particularly brave and worthy. This only begs the question: could now be the right time to recruit a new Lyoko warrior?...

  • A secret government agency known as "The Division" discovers that Jeremy has hacked into their computer system. Alerted to this infraction, the agency sends two men to Kadic Academy. In the course of their investigation, the two agents find the factory and the Supercomputer. Overwhelmed by their discovery, they plan to shut down the machine in order to better pore over its function. But at the same time, XANA launches an attack on Lyoko. Our heroes are forced to do battle on all fronts: in the computer lab, to keep the agents from shutting the Supercomputer down, and on Lyoko, to counter XANA's attack...

  • Hiroki's friend Johnny has a crush on Yumi. Shy and inexperienced with girls, he seeks advice on winning her over from... Ulrich. Our jealous advisor purposely misguides the poor youth into tenaciously hanging around Yumi, claiming that she finds such attention irresistible when in fact Yumi can't stand being crowded. Johnny innocently heeds Ulrich's advice with the best of intent, to the surprise and extreme irritation of the object of his affections. All of which would make for a simple harmless anecdote... until XANA attacks. In a Hitchcockian scenario, all of the birds around Kadic Academy and its region turn against our heroes... and particularly against Yumi, unable to help on Lyoko, as her suitor shadow Johnny won't let her out of his sight. As such, our heroine is seriously wounded. Aelita, Ulrich and Odd must act quickly to deactivate the tower on Lyoko and launch a "Return to the Past" to save their friend ...

  • It's time to elect a Class Delegate to the Academic Council... Jeremy, thinking that his only adversary in the contest will be Hervé, is confident of victory. But he finds himself up against an unexpected dark horse in the electoral race: Odd! In fact, his friend and classmate has decided to throw his hat in the ring in order to represent students like himself: the blockheads! Elsewhere, our heroes discover that XANA has a worrisome new plan: to destroy all of the surface sectors on Lyoko - which are the only means for the band of warriors to access Sector 5. With no points of entry, XANA will be able to pursue its objective of destroying the entire virtual universe unimpeded! In the course of these exploits, Jeremy will have his work cut out for him: in addition to running for office, he'll have to find some way to virtualize his friends directly into Sector 5!

  • XANA has found a way to raise the level of the digital sea, thus "flooding" Lyoko. The result: our heroes access to Sector 5 is blocked... Naturally, XANA takes advantage of the situation to launch a potentially fatal attack on the Heart of Lyoko. Jeremy had better figure out something fast! Meanwhile back at the academy, it's "Nutritional Awareness" day. In order to guarantee the students well-balanced meals, Rosa Littlejohn has to create a whole new, "light-and-healthy" menu in the cafeteria. This new regimen hardly passes muster regarding Odd's appetite, much less his taste... and the famished teen finds himself trying to get by on an empty stomach (an equally difficult task on Lyoko and at the academy)! A disaster in the making for such a voracious eater...

  • Our heroes are exhausted and overwhelmed. Their lives have been taken over by their work keeping XANA at bay... wreaking a disastrous toll on their academics. Bad marks, summons to meet with the Headmaster, probation... Jeremy, Odd, Ulrich and Aelita need help and suggest once again to add William to the gang, but Yumi categorically refuses: he's too much of a hothead! He would only put them all at risk!... Meanwhile, XANA goes on a particularly vicious attack. Our heroes are about to undergo a most trying adventure with a dramatic end. Will Yumi's negative take on William finally change?
