  • Trivia

    • When Skeletor's Warriors are recounting their acts of destruction, TrapJaw's mechanical arm is on the wrong side.

    • Why exactly does Skeletor want to stir war between Eternia's moons? What good will it do him apart from once again proving his role as an all-round bad guy? It's possible that he may hope that the war will enable him to conquer both moons himself, but it is never explained for sure.

    • There's a lot of inconsistency in the series between Eternia's moons- in this episode they are both inhabited by humans, but in most others they appear uninhabited- and in some episodes there's only one!

    • Where exactly did the Beast Man costume come from? Did they just happen to have a sewing machine in the ship?

  • Quotes

    • Man-E-Faces: Today you saw what happened when Ram Man and I got into an argument. It almost ruined our friendship.
      Ram Man: I'm sure happy we're pals again.
      Man-E-Faces: When people lost their temper, they often say things they later regret. So if you get angry, be careful you don't say something you really don't mean. Something you'll be sorry about later.
      Ram Man: I'm glad we made up, because now we're better friends than ever. Right Man-E?
      Man-E-Faces: Right, Rammy!

    • Skeletor: Take a Bow, Man-E-Faces, because your acting days are over!

    • Teela: What were you saying, Adam? By the...?
      Adam: Oh Yeah, By the way Teela, remind me to show you my great new jacket when we get home!

  • Notes

    • This episode features the second, and final, appearance of Man-E-Faces in the cartoon. It is well-known for its famous scene in which Adam almost transforms to He-Man in front of Teela.

  • Allusions

    • Ram-Man: Good thing I set my head to stone.

      An obvious play on words from various Star Trek incarnations by setting their common weapon, the phaser, to "stun."
