    • Lion-O: If I am to be the true lord of the Thundercats, I have to make my own decisions. Jaga: You are right. And by making your own decisions and by making them work, you've passed the final trial. (starts to disappear) Lion-O: Jaga, wait! (Jaga disappears completely) Does that mean I'll never see you again? Jaga: No, Lion-O, I'll always be here when you need me.

    • Lion-O: You've always been my guide and teacher, Jaga, and my friend. But this time, I must find my own way. Jaga: Very well. Lion-O: Jaga! Wait! Jaga: Why? You have made your decision, Lion-O. (disappears) You don't need my advice.

    • Jaga: Your nerves are on edge, Lion-O. You must rest before you confront Mumm-Ra. Lion-O: Creatures of darkness are best fought at night, Jaga.

    • Mumm-Ra: The upstart Lion-O plans to attack me. You must intercept and destroy him. He will be without the Sword. Jackalman: (yawning) Can't it wait till morning? Mumm-Ra: No! It cannot! He is already on his way. Monkian: (sarcastically) What about your own invicible powers, your ever-living lordship? Slithe: Surely you could crush him yourself with one flick of your mighty hand? Mumm-Ra: You mock me, miserable Mutants?! Do as I command!

    • Mumm-Ra: So, Lion-O has to destroy me... the ever-living lord of evil. It will indeed be his final trial. By the end of the day, Lion-O will be no more!

    • Maftet, the Lynx god, told Lion-O he could have been a Lion god. He then told Lion-O that the problem would then be that he too would be weak since Maftet had been weakened from a lack of worship.
