The Problem With Power
Key Characters Include: Prince Adam/He-Man, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Orko, King Randor, Queen Marlena, General Tataran, Trap Jaw, The Sorceress

Skeletor tricks He-Man into thinking he has accidentally killed a man- and consumed by guilt, He-Man transforms back to Adam and drops his sword down the abyss of Grayskull, deciding he is no longer worthy of Grayskull's powers. Skeletor then opens a portal to the goblin world, enabling General Tataran's army to enter Eternia, with possibly enough power and strength to conquer the planet. Can Eternia survive without its greatest hero... and will Adam realise he has been tricked before it is too late?moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Gen. Tataran: Not too bright, is he (Trap-Jaw)?
        Skeletor: As you can see, General, when I require intellegent assistants, I have to look somewhere besides Snake Mountain!

      • Skeletor: Trap-Jaw?
        Trap-Jaw: (fiddling with attachments) Yes, Master?
        Skeletor: Trap-Jaw, the General and I have important business to discuss.
        Trap-Jaw: Well, yes, Master.
        Skeletor: (irritated) It has nothing to do with you!
        Trap-Jaw: Oh, uh, yes, Master.
        Skeletor: Trap-Jaw...
        Trap-Jaw: Right here, Master!
        Skeletor: GET OUT OF HERE!
        Trap-Jaw: Right, Master, right.

      • He Man: Today I broke a promise, and proved myself unworthy of the great power that was given to me. And if I am unworthy, I can no longer permit myself to be He-Man.

      • He-Man: Let the Power... Return!

      • Skeletor: We are not going to defeat He-Man... this time, He-Man is going to defeat himself!

    • NOTES (2)

      • Originally Tom Tataranowicz wanted He-Man to actually kill an innocent bystander in this episode. But the Filmation bosses felt this was too extreme for a kids' cartoon, so they decided the dead man should be a villain in disguise faking death instead.

      • Tom Tataranowicz, who came up with the idea for this episode, based the story on an old Prince Valiant tale.
