Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Character First Appearance: Berzerkers, Hammerhand

    • Lion-O is capable of summoning sight beyond sight and allowing others to look through the hilt to see. He did this for the Unicorn Guardians to show that he had in fact freed one of their unicorns.

    • Skill/Power First Use:
      Sword - Sight Beyond Sight (non-Thundercat)
      Thundertank - Convertible to submarine

    • It's not entirely clear what the Unicorn Ring's powers are. The first time it shines, it seems to alter the weather, then teleport Lion-O onto the raven's back. The second time, it seems to have protected him from drowning somehow, maybe enabled him to breath underwater.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Hammerhand: Get the other one. He looks a bit tough, but he'll do for a snack.
      Snarf: A snack? Snarf a snack? Never! (net comes down over him) Drat. Snarf! I'm too tough for a snack! And stringy! You'll hate me! I'm indigestible! I'm... I'm... I'm... I'm captured, that's what I am. Oh, snarf!

    • (Having captured Snarf)
      Berserker: We caught us some mighty strange fish...
      Snarf: You guys caught yourself a load of trouble, that's what you caught!

    • (After discovering Panthro has adjusted the Thundertank for water travel)
      Cheetara: Anything this kitty-car can't do?
      Panthro It's user-friendly, it is!

  • NOTES (1)

    • The Unicorn Guardians' names are unknown. They are human in form with a star shaped tattoo between their eyes. An elderly man and woman who carry crescent moon staffs and claim to be able to cast spells.


    • The unicorns of Third Earth bear a striking resemblance to the unicorns seen in the movieThe Last Unicorn (1982), due of course to the production company for both the movie and the TV series being Rankin Bass, which used many of the same animators on many of their projects.
