Episode Summary

Man-At-Arms has managed to make contact with a peaceful alien being called Om, hovering above Eternia. When Om is being welcomed by the people of Eternos, Skeletor invades the city with General Tataran and the Goblin Army. A fierce battle follows, and Om is confused by the way the two sides fight against one another, as his race knows no violence. So to see which side is wiser and stronger, Om selects He-Man from the side of good, and Skeletor from the side of evil, and pits them against one another in a fight to the finish.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the scene where Skeletor and Tataran are in Snake Mountain planning their attack, Skeletor states that they must 'fly to Eternia' to attack the Royal Palace. But Snake Mountain is on Eternia...

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Man-At-Arms: Today we saw a terrible conflict between two opposing forces, and in the end the battle was not won by some powerful weapon; it was won by a single act of compassion. Compassion means caring for others, wanting to help them. Fighting is often not the way to settle a problem. It may prove who is stronger, but it doesn't prove who is right. And remember sometimes it takes more courage not to fight. See you soon.

      • Skeletor: So, He-Man, it's just you and me!

    • NOTES (2)

      • The character General Tataran was named after Tom Tataranowicz, one of the show's storyboard artists. He later re-appeared in the series' most popular episode, "The Problem With Power".

      • The plot of this episode is borrowed from a Star Trek episode with the same name. It was later re-used in another He-Man episode, called "The Games".
