The Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen centers around the story of Chen who joins an underground resistance movement in Shanghai, in hopes of stopping the Empire of Japan from taking over China. During his mission, he befriends a businessman named Liu Yutian, who is also the owner of a nightclub for foreigners. Liu is also in love with a nightclub singer named Kiki, who is secretly an undercover agent from the Japanese government. Chen finds out that the Japanese government is planning to assassinate the son of warlord General Zeng and are plotting to blame it on the rival warlord, General Zhuo. The Japanese want there to be a civil war between the two rival clans. Chen decides to disguise himself as a masked hero, defeating these assassins and ultimately rescuing General Zeng.

As the operation ends in a complete failure, Colonel Chikaraishi Takeshi has been ordered by Tokyo to assassinate a list of people who are on the anti-Japanese activist list. He heads over to the nightclub and meets Chen. He finds out that Chen has a secret identity and plans on saving the people on Takeshi's hit list. Takeshi's younger brother takes the helm by leading the killers to find and eliminate the editor of the Shanghai Times. Chen tries to stop this, but unfortunately, he sees his friend die right in front of him. This causes Chen to devote himself to seek and kill these murderers.

As Chen is eliminating these murderers, he finds out that Kiki is a spy working with the Japanese government. Chen and Takashi begins to lose trust in her, which leaves Takashi to kill the girlfriend of General Zeng. Takashi later reveals that he is related to the Hongkou dojo's master, who had been defeated by Chen many years ago.

General Zhuo has been killed and his forces surrender to the Japanese. Takashi tries to prevent this from happening by sending Kiki to battle with Chen in Hongkou dojo. Chen accepts by killing one of Takashi's men right in front of Kiki to prove he is serious. Takashi is then defeated and is replaced with another officer while Chen disguises himself in his famous superhero outfit, ready to help the resistance put an end to the invaders of Japan.
