Episode Summary

The scene changes to Hook Mountain, where Lion-O must beat Tygra at a test of mind power. The Tiger Clan on Thundera were given special mind powers that enable them to produce illusions to their enemies. Lion-O must be able to distinctly separate the real from the unreal. Lion-O is clever enough to see past Tygra's illusions, and is able to earn his Thundercat insignia during day four of his trials.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Tygra is not allowed to help Lion-O in any way, but apparantly that does not include keeping the Mutants away from Lion-O.

      • Tygra has never used his mind powers before because it is a terrible strain on him and has been storing up all his mental energy for the anointment trial.

      • Lion-O discovers that his greatest fear is that he'll feel afraid again, like he felt as a boy fleeing Thundera.

      • Although Lion-O's trial with Tygra is being able to overcome Tygra's mental powers of illusion, they end up in a physical hand to hand fight, like Lion-O did with Panthro in the trial of strength. He did not, however, fight hand to hand with Cheetara or the ThunderKittens.

      • Tygra's Powers: (First Use) Mind Power - the ability to create illusions so that others see what is not really there.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Lion-O: It was Jaga who saved me. He got me aboard the spaceship, just in time to see my beloved Thundera blown into space dust. It's my nightmare! It's wakened me in terror ever since.

      • (In the middle of a blizzard)
        Lion-O: Can't tell if this storm is real or another of Tygra's illusions. Either way, it's cold. No. Can't let myself feel it. Concentrate. It's not cold. It's not cold... It's freezing, is what it is!

      • Tygra: The Lord of the ThunderCats must be able to tell what is, from what is not. Have you prepared yourself?
        Lion-O: That's what we're here to find out.
        Tygra: I am allowed to tell you this: Before this day is over, Lion-O, you will face your greatest fear.
        Lion-O: But, I fear nothing... that I know of.
        Tygra: We shall see. Let the trial begin.
