Episode Summary

Orko's magic pyramid inadvertently saves Dree Elle, a female Trollan (Orko's species), who was hiding from Dragoon, an evil fire-breathing half man, half dragon who is terrorising Orko's home word of Trolla. On hearing the threat to his world, where his is a great magician, Orko promptly returns with Dree Elle in the pyramid. Knowing that their friend will need some help, He-Man and Battle Cat get The Sorceress to open a portal to send them to Trolla to help their friend, and find themselves in Orko's bizarre, back-to-front world, where they must put an end to Dragoon's reign of terror before sundown, or the portal back to Eternia will close...moreless

  • Dawn of Dragoon

    Dawn of Dragoon was an intriguing episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. There was a lot of symbolic themes and actions. It was awesome to learn more about Orko and his world, Trolla. I liked Dree Elle. It was crazy to see how diabolical Skeletor is and how far his grasp can reach. Dragoon was an evil adversary using the Trollans. It was funny how He-Man reverted back to Adam in Trolla. I look forward to seeing Trolla and Dree Elle again as she and Orko shared something special!!!!!!!!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Although Dragoon is said to be under Skeletor's command, this is the first episode of the series not to actually feature Skeletor (well, it's either this one, or "A Friend In Need", depending on the exact episode order).

    • In this episode we sort of see Orko without his hat- when he shows his face to Dree Elle, we see his shadow on the wall, giving us a rough idea of what he really looks like!

    • In the first scene, when Adam laughs at Man-At-Arms getting soaked, he has He-Man's laugh!

    • Why do Prince Adam and Cringer walk out of the dimensional gate separately, when they went in as He-Man atop Battle Cat? It would have made for a more amusing scene if Cringer had collapsed under Adam's weight when emerging from the gate!

  • QUOTES (3)

    • He-Man: In today's story Orko was faced with a very difficult decision. You know, when we're young most of our decisions are made for us, but as we get older, well we want to make more and more of them for ourselves. And that's the way it ought to be. But sometimes we have a real tough one, a real problem. And when that happens it's a good idea to talk it over with someone else. Someone who really cares about you, like your mother or father, or maybe your best friend. Talking a problem out with someone else can be a great help.

    • He-Man: Come out and play Frog face!

    • Prince Adam: That's it things are backwards here. Maybe if I say By The Power of Greyskull backwards...
      Cringer: Maybe then it will work.
      Prince Adam: Greyskull of power the by!

  • NOTES (1)

    • The first episode to feature Dree Elle (a purely Filmation creation), and the first time we see Orko's home world Trolla (where, unlike Eternia, Orko is a powerfull magician).
