Bat Ninja is a 2018 American animated short film based on Cartoon Network's forthcoming animated television series Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, which was shown prior to screenings of The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie, on August 31, 2018, in the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland.
In the beginning of the short film, Badgerclops makes pancakes for breakfast, and calls Mao Mao and Adorabat for breakfast. While eating, Adorabat asked Mao Mao what kind of weapon he has that is truly legendary, so Mao Mao showed her the most legendary sword ever. Then, they receive an emergency call from Pure Heart Valley about a firebreath monster attacking the town. The mission seemed too dangerous for Adorabat, so Mao Mao told her to stay at home, and not touch the sword. Adorabat was left alone, and got bored, so she borrowed Mao Mao's legendary sword just to be a bat ninja. But then, her reckless behavior destroyed their Sheriff Headquarters. So she tried to clean it all up before Mao Mao and Badgerclops arrived home, and she succeed. Entering the headquarters, they see it all clean, and Mao Mao appreciated Adorabat for not being reckless. That is until Mao Mao found his legendary sword destroyed, yelled out, "ADORABAT!!! You mind explaining to me about this?!", which means Adorabat is in trouble, ending the short film.
