  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • He-Man: We're vastly outnumbered!
      Sy-Klone: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!
      He-Man: But if you strike down a thousand of these, two-thousand take their place!
      Sy-Klone: Point well taken!

    • Teela: Any ideas?
      Adam: A few... unfortunately, they all depend on us being somewhere else...

    • Sy-Klone: Strength is not always the key, Teela. Remember, the reed bends before the wind, while the brittle branch breaks in two.

    • Evil-Lyn: (to Tri-klops) You've outdone yourself - created a weapon that not only fails, but multiplies its own failures!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • In chess, a "gambit" is an opening move in chess in which a player, usually white, sacrifices a piece or even two, usually pawns, in an attempt to gain the upper hand in the game. This refers to both Roboto's moves in the chess game he plays with Man-E-Faces in the beginning as well as his sacrifice of himself later in the episode to give He-Man time to deal with Tri-Klops.

    • The Lernaean Hydra

      He-Man destroys one of Tri-klops monsters, two take its place. This seems to have been inspired by the Lernaean Hydra, which, in Greek mythology, was a serpent-like water beast that had numerous heads and every time one was cut off, two grew back. The Hydra was killed by Heracles as one of his Twelve Labours.
