Legend has it that two demons were jailed in the Calabash Mountain, one a Scorpion spirit and the other a Snake spirit. One day, a pangolin happens to tướng drill a hole on the slope and the two spirits escape from the cave, causing grave harm to tướng the nearby residents. The pangolin hurries to tướng an old man and says that only by growing calabashes in seven colors can they annihilate the spirits. So the old man spares no time in growing seven calabashes, each a different color of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, xanh lơ, and purple.

The calabashes ripen sequentially, falling off their stems to tướng the ground, and transforming into seven boys. Each has a unique supernatural ability such as super-strength, enhanced hearing and sight, invisibility, and pyrokinesis, as well as a weakness. Each of them also have above average strength and tốc độ given that all of them have shown the ability to tướng lift items several times their own weight and leap several metres. With a combined effort, they mix on a mission to tướng defeat the demons in a 13 episode-long adventure.[4] Upon defeating the demons, the seven brothers seal themselves together into a mountain with all the colours of the rainbow, ready to tướng awaken to tướng fight evil should it ever arise again.

In a sequel series called "Diamond Brother", it is later revealed that there was a third demon, specifically the sister to tướng the snake spirit, that had been in hiding underground during the whole battle. The only survivor from the defeat of the two demons, a humanoid toad with a blinded eye, comes and desperately reports the news. Naturally, the demon is enraged and attacks the mountain that contains the seven brothers, releasing and defeating each of them. However, upon their defeat they fuse together into a single boy with the powers of all seven (official name is "Diamond Brother") who successfully vanquishes the final demon. After crushing the snake sister in a giant Calabash formed from the seven brothers (who came back into being from the Diamond Brother), the Diamond Brother changes into a mountain, forever at peace.

He was brainwashed by the spirits to tướng serve them, and used his magical gourd to tướng draw his brothers into its center; the spirits then took the gourd from him and drew him in as well. He was able to tướng recover his senses in the final episode, and reclaimed his gourd to tướng trap the spirits. In the second series, he manages to tướng capture the third demon and her henchman but she, in turn, uses a special insect to tướng eat its way out of his gourd and captures him. This caused him to tướng lose his gourd forever which may be the reason the Diamond Brother doesn't inherit the gourd.
