    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • This episode and the next were framed so as to show Prince Adam in the worst possible scenario (ie, alone without the ability to become He-Man).

      • Why does Man-At-Arms address Skeletor as Keldor? He always referred to him as Skeletor.

        Response: This could be a reference to how personal their rivalry is, seeing as Skeletor called Man-At-Arms Duncan.

      • In Mekanek's Lament, Count Marzo's eyes are white with red irises but in the Coucil of Evil episodes, his eyes are completely red.

      • During Merman's weapon sequence, the gold fringes that frame his face like a mask are colored green like the rest of his face.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Teela: I can't reach any of the masters or my father!
        Adam: Huh. Could he a malfunction... (Teela gives him a long stare) Yeah, okay, your father's invention never malfunction. Point taken.

    • NOTES (10)

      • This is the only episode to feature a preview of the next episode.

      • Stratos mention the time he and Adam were attacked while passing through the Eye of Zarcane in "The Courage of Adam."

      • Mekaneck and Buzz-Off are captured by the villains they faced and defeated in previous episodes – Count Marzo in "Mekaneck's Lament" and the three giants in "Buzz-Off's Pride," respectively.

      • It's the second time something bad happens when Ram-Man goes fishing – the first time was in "Siren's Song."

      • Even though Stinkor is among Skeletor's Horde at the beginning, he's never seen again, nor does he appear to be caught and locked up by the Masters.

      • Webstor has certainly evolved from his origins in the 80's. In that series, the "Master of Escape" was nothing more than a purple-skinned goblin who worked for Skeletor as a thief, armed with only a grappling hook (he was really little more than a joke). The new writers have done a great job, making him a creepy, spider-like monster, who hopefully will be taken more seriously.

      • Aired on Cartoon Network Latin America on October 4th, 2003.

      • Aired on Toonami/CNX in the UK on August 1st 2003.

      • Aired on YTV on May 10th

      • Officially introduces Webstor and the return of Count Marzo, Evilseed, and Azdar and his 2 giant companions who make up Skeletor's Council of Evil. Also, The Council of Evil was the name of a group of villains that Skeletor was apart of [revealed in the 80's series] before starting his own group in Snake Mountain.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Napoléon Bonaparte

        Skeletor: Who was it that said "Divide and Conquer"? Oh! Me.

        Actually, this expression is usually attributed to Napoléon Bonaparte, but it originally derives from the Latin phrase "Divide et impera" (Divide and rule) which dates back to the Roman Era. It consists of a strategy of gaining power over people by breaking up allegiances so that the individuals become weak. It essentially allows those with little real power to control those who, when acting cooperatively, would have a lot of power. Napoléon managed to gain control of most of the western and central mainland of Europe by basing his tactic on this strategy.
