This is a list of She-Ra: Princess of Power and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power characters.

The Great Rebellion[edit]

The Great Rebellion is a faction on Etheria that fights the occupation of Etheria by the Evil Horde. While Brightmoon is their capital, the Whispering Woods serves as their base of operation. Among its members are:

She-Ra / Princess Adora[edit]

She-Ra is introduced in the animated movie The Secret of the Sword as Force Captain Adora, who was an agent of the Evil Horde that rules the planet Etheria. She discovers that she is the long-lost twin sister of Prince Adam of Eternia, having been stolen by the Horde's leader, Hordak, as a baby. She is granted the Sword of Protection, which parallels He-Man's Sword of Power, gaining the power to transform into She-Ra, her secret identity.[1]

In the 2018 series, a teenaged Princess Adora/She-Ra is like her 2002 twin brother Prince Adam/He-Man. Unlike in the 1985 series, She-Ra reveals her true identity to Queen Angela and the court.

She-Ra and Princess Adora are voiced by Melendy Britt in the 1980s series and by Aimee Carrero in the 2018 series.

Swift Wind[edit]

Spirit is the horse of Adora, serving as her She-Ra alter ego's steed Swift Wind. He has a mate named Starwind and they have a young colt. While Adam's pet Cringer increases in size as Battle Cat for He-Man's use, Spirit's transformation gives him the appearance of a winged unicorn with the ability of speech.

In the 2018 series, he remained Horsey in his normal state, and Swift Wind lacked ability to speak like 2002 Cringer/Battle Cat until the season one finale. Once that ability is gained, Swift Wind has a sardonic tongue and pursues his own political agenda of pursuing the liberty of all horses on Etheria, beginning in the Rebellion's lands.

Spirit/Swift Wind are voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Bow[edit]

Bow is an archer who is one of the original Rebels. Bow often has to disguise himself when leaving The Whispering Woods, to prevent the Horde from identifying him. He, like Glimmer, is a rather impetuous member of the Rebellion. He is far too eager to rush into battle with the Horde, which more often than not gets him captured, leading to She-Ra rescuing him. Bow appears to have known Rebellion member Kowl for quite a long time. They have a friendly love/hate relationship, and they have many arguments in which Kowl arises as the winner and makes a fool of Bow. Kowl has, on many occasions, voiced his dislike of Bow's musical abilities, but Adora seems to enjoy his songs.

He has also shown some ability as an illusionist. At different times he has made birds appear out of nowhere, and made himself disappear.

Bow was released in the Masters of the Universe Classics toy line.[2] This is the character's second time to be made into an action figure. He is the only male figure from the Princess of Power line up to be released.

The 2018 cartoon series Bow is redesigned as a young black archer.

Bow is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series and by Marcus Scribner in the 2018 series.

Arrow[edit]

Arrow is Bow's faithful steed. He and Bow seem to share a long and very special bond.

Queen Castaspella[edit]

Castaspella is a member of The Great Rebellion. As her name implies, she is a sorceress and is able to wield great magic. She is the Queen of Mystacor. Castaspella is sometimes called Casta by other members of the Rebellion.

Castaspella is an extremely powerful sorceress, able to control magical forces of immense strength including: precognitive, communicative, analytical and manipulative spells. To focus and intensify her magic, she linked her powers with her gold armbands. She is one of the most powerful sorceresses on Etheria, along with Queen Angella and Shadow Weaver. She and Shadow Weaver were once friends and fellow pupils of the sorcerer Norwyn when Shadow Weaver was human.

Castaspella appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Castaspella is the sister of King Micah and aunt to Glimmer.

Castaspella is voiced by Melendy Britt in the 1980s series and by Sandra Oh in the 2018 series.

Flutterina[edit]

Flutterina is a member of The Great Rebellion. She has the power of flight due to the two wings on her back. She is like a normal Etherian woman, but with the wings of a butterfly. Before she was transformed into Flutterina by Light Hope, her name was "Small One" and she was a laborer in Baron Condor's castle.

Flutterina will appear in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 2.

Flutterina is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Double Trouble[edit]

Double Trouble is Glimmer’s cousin and Queen Angella's niece. She comes from the Kingdom of Green Glade and functions as the Chief Spy of the Rebellion.

Double’s forte is disguise and she can look like almost anyone with a little time. She is very dexterous and can squeeze herself into almost impossibly tiny spaces or climb the sheerest of walls to carry out her missions. Double is not much of a fighter, though her agility makes her a good dodger. No disguise is beyond her, she can look like an aged King one moment or a Horde Villainess the next as well as changing her voice to suit her disguise. Double can fast-talk her way out of the tightest spots and is very effective against the Horde who she adamantly hates. This stems from the fact she plays a Horde supporter in her normal guise, the better to spy on them when the time comes. She is often mistrusted by Etherians not in the know for this very reason.

She was not in the TV series, only comic books and toy form (first wave).

Princess Frosta[edit]

Frosta is a valuable member of the Great Rebellion. She is the reigning Princess of Castle Chill in the Kingdom of Snows, an area located at the northernmost pole of Etheria. This area of Etheria has only been attacked on one occasion by the Horde, possibly because of the extreme temperature there. Most of Frosta's people hold a great hatred for the Selkies, a race of seal-like humanoids who live in Galacia, near her own homeland who once warred against them. Frosta, however, does not share her people's mistrust of them. When the Horde arrived, these two races called a truce to their feud to unite against them.

Frosta is able to lower her external and internal body temperature without harm to herself, thereby radiating immense cold from her body, most often as energy-like beams from her hands. Frosta is able to reach -105 degrees Fahrenheit within a few seconds, and is immune to sub-zero temperatures around her. In addition, she can freeze any moisture in the air around her into unusually-hard ice, and thereby form simple objects such as slides, ladders, and shields. Frosta can also freeze objects to the degree that they will shatter when touched or simply localize a small area with snow.

She also develops a crush on He-Man, who seems sometimes embarrassed due to her flirtatious behavior.

Frosta appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Her ethnicity and costume in the new series seems based on Inuit; suited to her ice-based powers. Although much younger than the other princesses, Frosta is Empress of the second largest region in Etheria.

Frosta is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series and by Merit Leighton in the 2018 series.

Princess Glimmer[edit]

GenderFemale
OccupationLeader of the Great Rebellion
TitlePrincess
FamilyKing Micah
Queen Angella

Glimmer, Princess of Bright Moon, is the daughter of Queen Angella and Micah and the cousin of Double Trouble. She is originally the leader of the Great Rebellion but relinquishes her title to Adora. Glimmer comes from a happy family, but her childhood is tinged with sadness. After the Horde arrived on Etheria, her father left to fight them, and was never seen again. Later, when her mother is in battle with the Horde, she too disappears. For many years Glimmer fears she will never see her parents again. One day, a spy discovers that Angella is being held prisoner by Hunga, leader of the Harpies. By this point, Glimmer had established the Rebellion, but gives up her title to Adora, when her mother is rescued by She-Ra.

Glimmer can manipulate light, allowing her to emit pulses or strobes to blind or disorient others, fire laser-like cutting beams or "solid-photon" concussive-force beams, illuminate large areas with radiant light, create explosive-plasma fireworks, and refract light to make herself (or other objects) invisible. In close proximity to her mother, she has the power to fly unaided. She has also demonstrated limited magical abilities, such as a holding spell, as well as short-range teleportation. While she is not quite as powerful as her mother, Glimmer is nonetheless one of the Great Rebellion's most powerful members.

Princess Glimmer appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Her main ability is line-of-sight teleportation, but she is also capable of hurling bolts of photonic energy and assisting her mother in other magical tasks.

Glimmer is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series and by Karen Fukuhara in the 2018 series.

Kowl[edit]

Kowl is a flying Etherian creature and resembles a cross between a koala and an owl. Kowl's species is never named in the series. His species possess the ability to fly using their giant wing-like ears and to read the minds of other members of their species if they have some feathers of the other. This ability allows the Evil Horde to almost capture their enemies. Although Kowl lacks courage, this does not stop him from trying to help his friends when they are in need. Kowl seems to have developed a strong attachment to fellow Rebel Bow. Their love/hate relationship suggests they have known each other for quite some time, often implying they didn't like each other when it could be seen that they had a great friendship. Kowl also had a one-time rivalry with Imp so much so that in one episode, Imp attempts to set up Kowl as a Horde spy by planting Horde coins in his bed. Some of The Great Rebellion think Kowl may be a traitor, but Princess Adora firmly believes he is innocent. Later on in the episode, it is revealed that Imp was the one responsible for the coins and that Kowl's innocent. The Rebels apologize to Kowl for not trusting him and he is accepted back into the fold. It should also be noted that Kowl is one of three people on Etheria that knows that Adora is She-Ra and has been to The Crystal Castle to see Light Hope.

Kowl does not appear in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. However, Glimmer does have a stuffed animal version of the character in her bedroom.

Kowl is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Light Hope[edit]

Light Hope is a magical entity composed entirely of light. He is the guardian of The Crystal Castle, and acts as a mentor and advisor to She-Ra in her battle against Hordak and the Horde. Light Hope is the Etherian version of the Sorceress.

In She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Light Hope is a holographic projection, based on ancient technology rather than magic. She has a female form and voice rather than the shimmering beam of light with a male voice as in the original series.

Light Hope is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series and by Morla Gorrondona in the 2018 series.

Loo-Kee[edit]

Loo-Kee is a small Etherian creature who resembles a chipmunk. He belongs to a race of beings known as the Kon-Seals. Loo-Kee follows She-Ra and the other members of The Great Rebellion, while hidden behind trees, bushes and other objects. At the end of almost every episode, Loo-Kee emerges and asks the viewer if they had seen where he had been hiding. He then reveals to the viewer where he had been hiding, and then relates the moral of the story.

Other than this, the character makes only two "full" appearances throughout the entire series. In "Loo-Kee Lends a Hand", Light Hope reveals to Loo-Kee the true identities of Prince Adam and Adora as He-Man and She-Ra. The other episode is "Loo-Kee's Sweety". His father Paa-Pee is leader of the Kon-Seals. His girlfriend is Laa-See. The Kon-Seals are seen bringing fruit to prisoners of the Horde.

Loo-Kee is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series. Loo-Kee makes an appearance in the 2018 version as a poster briefly shown in Glimmer's bedroom during the first episode and a design on Razz's hand fan.

Madame Razz[edit]

Madame Razz is a witch who lives in The Whispering Woods among the other Twigets. She uses her abilities to help The Great Rebellion in their fight against Hordak and the Evil Horde.

Being a witch, she has spellcasting abilities, and is able to brew potions in her cauldron. With the aid of Broom, she can fly. Madame Razz is very absent-minded, and frequently mispronounces spells or forgets them completely, due to her advanced age. However, they usually have a tendency to work out for the best regardless.

She is the equivalent of Orko in the He-Man series, both as comic relief and for occasional periods of wisdom. Also, most of their faces are usually covered by their hats. Madame Razz is one of three people on Etheria that knows Adora is She-Ra; she also tells the tale of how She-Ra met Light Hope, the gatekeeper of The Crystal Castle. Although they share her secret, neither one has ever interacted throughout the series run.

In the Masters of the Universe Classics toyline, Madame Razz is listed as a Twigget.

In the 2018 series, Razz is re-imagined as an old woman.

Madame Razz is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series and by Grey Griffin in the 2018 series.

Broom[edit]

Broom is a sentient broomstick with face and arms who is Madame Razz's friend and can fly enough to serve as her mode of transportation.

Broom is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Princess Mermista[edit]

Mermista is the Princess of Salineas, an underwater city on Etheria. Her father King Mercier believes it best to leave The Horde alone, in the hope that they will respect his decision and leave him and his people in peace. Mermista knows that The Horde will stop at nothing to conquer all of Etheria and she is the only member of the people of Salineas who supports the Rebellion. Mermista can transform from her mermaid form to a human one.

She possesses psionic control of the element of water and telepathy with sea creatures.

In the English-language version of the show, she speaks with a French accent.[3]

Mermista appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power as one of the Princesses that Glimmer, Bow, and Adora come to ask to join the Rebellion. She had a previous relationship with Sea Hawk. Her personality is a bit nihilistic, but comes around to the Rebellion because of the help of the trio.

Mermista is voiced by Melendy Britt in the 1980s series and by Vella Lovell in the 2018 series.

Netossa[edit]

Netossa is different from the rest of The Great Rebellion as her ability appears to have no magical or mystical source. Her skill is shown to be the product of her own hard work and practice. She can skillfully throw nets that she keeps on her back. She is so accurate in her aim that she is able to capture a Horde Trooper by casting a net through the bars of her cell door. Netossa has the features of an African-American woman and may be the only human character on the cartoon who is nonwhite.[4]

Netossa appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. In this continuity, Netossa's powers are magical, being able to cast energy nets of varying size, both for entrapment and as force-fields. She is in a relationship with Spinnerella.

Netossa is voiced by Diane Pershing in the 1980s series and by Krystal Joy Brown in the 2018 series.

Peekablue[edit]

Peekablue is a member of The Great Rebellion. She possesses blue peacock feathers which give her the ability of enhanced sight, with them she is able to see into the far reaches of the universe.

Peekablue is scheduled to appear in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 2. It is mentioned that Peekablue is dating Sweet Bee.

Peekablue is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Perfuma[edit]

Perfuma is a ditzy blonde member of the Great Rebellion. Unlike the other members of the Rebellion, she does not appear to be afraid of Hordak and the other Hordesmen. On one occasion, she is captured by Hordak and imprisoned in a dungeon in the Fright Zone. While prisoner in the Fright Zone, Perfuma decides that it can benefit from a bit of sprucing up. So she escapes and makes her way around the Fright Zone, decorating it with flowers wherever she goes. Hordak is so incensed by this that he begs She-Ra to take her back into the Rebellion.

Being an ecomancer, she has total control over plants, allowing her to create vines, trees and vast fields of flora at will without the need of sunlight to maintain her plants. Her powers also have been shown to nullify/transform dark energy and fire into cascades of flowers; probably the reason she doesn't fear Hordak.

Perfuma appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

Perfuma is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series and by Genesis Rodriguez in the 2018 series.

Queen Angella[edit]

Angella, the Queen of Bright Moon, possesses a pair of wings which allow her to fly. Her daughter is Glimmer, Princess of Bright Moon and her niece is Double Trouble.

She possesses vast mystical powers, which are linked to Brightmoon's Moonstone gem—itself powered by the light of Etheria's 3 moons. During an eclipse, her powers are drastically weakened. At full strength, she alone has proven more than a match for the horde itself.[5] Her powers are similar to Glimmer's in that they're primarily based on photonic energy, however at a significantly stronger magnitude than Glimmer's. Also, in contrast to Glimmer, Angella also has the ability to open magical-gateway portals to other dimensions. She also has various spell-casting abilities, of strength sufficient to counteract those of Shadow Weaver, as seen in the episode The Crystal Castle.

Queen Angella appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

Queen Angella is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series and by Reshma Shetty in the 2018 series.

Sea Hawk[edit]

AliasesJeoff Blithe
OccupationPirate
TitleCaptain
FamilyCaptain Falcon (father)

Sea Hawk is a pirate.[6] He possesses no magical abilities, his skills are the product of hard work. His skills were developed due to the influence of his father, The Falcon. Twenty years before Sea Hawk joined The Great Rebellion, The Falcon disappeared without a trace. Although his father had instilled him with good morals, Sea Hawk spent many years as a pirate, plundering the seas of Etheria. Later, he aids The Horde by delivering supplies. He later reveals that he only helped The Horde for the sum of money they paid him. Underneath all of this, it is established that Sea Hawk is a good man. When he meets Princess Adora, shortly after her own defection from The Horde, she shows him that what he is doing is wrong and he joins The Rebellion in their fight against The Horde.

He usually wields a laser rapier in combat, but he later gains much more powerful weapons from his father, the Falcon. Among these are an Impact Ring, that enhances his physical blows a hundredfold and projects a protective energy shield in the form of a falcon; Seven League Boots that enable him to leap over great distances and a Photon Cutlass, which can stun when its blade glows blue and can cut through any substance when it glows red.

Sea Hawk also develops a crush on Princess Adora, revealing that he likes to spend the time with her, and She-Ra is just a fighting partner to him. This leads Sea Hawk and Adora to start a relationship in which they kissed each other at least two times in the franchise.

Sea Hawk appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Here, he was in a previous relationship with Mermista and constantly flirts with her despite her annoyance. He has a habit of setting his ships on fire to ram his enemies.

Sea Hawk is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series and by Jordan Fisher in the 2018 series.

Spinnerella[edit]

Spinnerella only makes one appearance in the series, and is shown to be a naive person.

She is fooled by Hordak into thinking her friend Netossa has been captured by The Great Rebellion, when it is really The Horde who are responsible. When Spinnerella is told that her friend has been captured by The Rebellion, she aids The Horde in gaining entry into The Whispering Woods by using her own ability to spin at rapid speeds to disable the trees' power. Although the Woods have been shown to keep out the villains, it is possible that Spinnerella is able to enter with The Horde as she is concerned for her friend.

In her single episode, she is shown to be one of the most powerful members of The Rebellion. It is established that she and Netossa live in an area of Etheria, which is not controlled by The Horde. When she realizes that she has been duped by Hordak, she turns her power against him.

Primarily a dancer, Spinerella has the ability to spin at high speeds, turning into a human cyclone, capable of rapid travel and deflect oncoming attacks.

Spinnerella appears in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. As part of the Princess Alliance, she is mostly a background comedic character until the season finale where her command of air currents is first demonstrated. Spinnerella is in a relationship with Netossa.

Spinnerella is voiced by Diane Pershing in the 1980s series and by Noelle Stevenson in the 2018 series.

Snout Spout[edit]

Snout Spout is a cyborg with a human body and a metal elephant head.[7] He serves the Heroic Warriors as a firefighter, his main power being to spray jets of water, stored in a special pack on his back, from his trunk, which he refills periodically from rivers and lakes. In various episodes, he was also referred to as Hose Nose.[8] Unlike many of the male characters in the series, Snout Spout's body-design looks more appropriate for the He-Man series, as he wears little clothing, save for boots, a furry loin-cloth and wrist bands. This is because the character was originally designed for the He-Man toyline. He made three appearances in the series. In the first, She-Ra, Swift Wind, and Glimmer met "Hose Nose" at a lake when they had been doused with an experimental chemical spray, and he cleans them off with a blast off water. In the second, "Snout Spout" appears as a new friend of Prince Adam, both visiting from Eternia. In the first appearance, he had large red panels for eyes, similar to his appearance in the minicomic, while in the second, his eyes look more human, like the produced action figure. He also appeared in the season 2 episode "Out of the Cocoon" in a brief sequence with Princess Glimmer at the beginning.

Snout Spout would appear in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 2.

Snout Spout is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 80s series.

Sweet Bee[edit]

Sweet Bee is a member of a race of intergalactic Bee People.

Her people fled from the homeworld when it was destroyed when their sun exploded. Sweet Bee's people came to Etheria to find a new home. All of her people possess bee-like wings on the backs which give them the ability to fly. Sweet Bee is sent by The Hive to scout for a new planet to colonize. It is her job to find out if the planet has a good source of water and also if the people of the planet are peaceful in nature. While scouting the planet, her spaceship is captured by Hordak, and he tries to use her people to do his bidding. He-Man and She-Ra free the Bee People from Hordak, but they later come under threat from Skeletor. It is at this time that Sweet Bee decides to join the Great Rebellion to fight for their freedom.[9]

Sweet Bee is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series.

The Evil Horde[edit]

The Evil Horde are the primary antagonists of the She-Ra television series.[10] However, most of the male characters appeared in the Masters of the Universe toy line and its accompanying media, including the Marvel comics, UK comics and mini-comics from 1985 onwards. Among the members of the Evil Horde are:

Hordak[edit]

Hordak is Skeletor's old master, and an Evil Horde emperor who reigns in terror over most of the planet Etheria. He could re-arrange the different parts of his body into all manner of weapons and devices, making him one of the most formidable foes in the cartoon. Unlike his former pupil Skeletor, Hordak prefers to place his reliance on Science and Technology, rather than magic. He suffered no fools and expected the highest standards of excellence from his minions, rewarding them when they succeeded and punishing them severely when they failed.

Hordak is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series then by Colin Murdock in the 2002 series and by Keston John in the 2018 series.

Catra[edit]

In the animated series, Catra is the Force-Captain of Hordak's Evil Horde (a position previously held by Adora before she defected). Her trademark is a magical mask, given to her by Hordak, who in turn had stolen it from the queen of the Magicats. Catra could transform into a purple panther of formidable strength by pulling the mask over her eyes. Even in human form however, Catra had such confidence in her own skills that she was prepared to take on Huntara, one of the most ruthless warriors in the galaxy.[11]

The deliciously comical feline voice bestowed upon the character by Melendy Britt belied Catra's extremely cruel and calculating ways. The only characters that Catra evinced any tenderness towards were her pet lion Clawdeen and the handsome pirate Sea Hawk, although the latter evoked Catra's wrath when he paired with Adora. The vain feline Force Captain had no regard or concern for even her fellow members of the Evil Horde, although Entrapta seemed to come as close to being a friend of Catra's as anyone could get. She despised Adora from her time in the Horde, as she envied the position that Hordak adopted daughter was holding.

Catra's mask also granted her telepathic control over all cats, and seemingly the power to teleport herself to specific locations as displayed in the episode One to Count On. In the toyline, she is the principal villain instead of Hordak (who is part of the Masters of the Universe toyline),[12] but even in the Filmation series, she was featured as the chief antagonist in more episodes than any other Horde villain. In fact, Catra only seemed to serve Hordak in order to accrue more power and position for herself. She teamed up with Skeletor to destroy Hordak in My Friend, My Enemy, presumably after learning that Hordak offered to make Kowl's evil cousin Red-Eye his Force Captain. She was also perfectly ready to abandon Hordak so that she could become the Queen of the Magicats.

Colonel Blast[edit]

Colonel Blast is a Horde commander with electro-energy weapons built into his armor. He appears to be quite muscular and strong, but in reality, he is a rather scrawny and unimpressive man underneath the armor. He was based on the prototype for Rio Blast, a heroic character.

Colonel Blast is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Cy-Chop[edit]

Cy-Chop is a cyborg bounty hunter for the Evil Horde. He has giant scissors for hands, blue furry limbs, and a transparent torso. He was created for the 30th Anniversary of the Masters of the Universe toyline by Mattel's Terry Higuchi.

In his earlier years, Scychor roamed the galaxy as a mercenary and professional thief with his partner Kronis until he was betrayed by him and thrown from the vehicle. The rogue robots saved him by preserving his organs in the robot body's chest and his brain in a robotic skull. As Cy-Chop, he was recruited by Hordak to fight against the Masters of the Universe and the Snake Men.

Dragstor[edit]

Dragstor is a cyborg who is part man, part vehicle. He has rocket thrusters on his back & a tyred wheel built into his chest, which he uses to race across the ground at super-speed.

He was never featured in the He-Man cartoon nor the She-Ra cartoon because he was one of the penultimate series toys to be released.

In the comics, he was originally an ordinary athlete who (along with his best friend) was kidnapped and transformed by Hordak where Dragstor was mind-controlled to serve him. His friend became the Heroic Warrior Extendar, who has vowed to free Dragstor from the Horde's mind control.

Dylamug[edit]

Dylamug is a large, super-advanced evil robot who is occasionally placed in charge of Hordak's Horde Troopers.

He was based on concept art for a Mattel action figure called Dial-A-Feature, which would have had a similar gimmick as Man-E-Faces, but with the face divided horizontally into sections, allowing his eyes, nose, and mouth dials to be rotated individually.

Dylamug is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series.

Entrapta[edit]

Entrapta is the Evil Horde's villainous technician. She appears to be a close sidekick of Catra.

Entrapta is a skilled inventor, and is credited with designing advanced equipment for The Horde to employ in their battle against The Great Rebellion. Her specialty is devising different traps for members of The Rebellion. One invention created by Entrapta is the Trapper Tank.

She has two long braids of hair which she can use to entangle her opponents. Apparently, she has the power to control the movement of her hair at will.

In the 2018 series, she was still a skilled inventor, but is a much more sympathetic character. For instance, she initially sides with the Rebels, although her eccentric obsession with technology proves to be a frustrating complication to her comrades. However, during a rescue mission in the Fright Zone, Entrapta is left behind after the others believe her to be dead. Believing her friends abandoned her, Catra is able to persuade her to defect to the Horde with the promise of access to its advanced technology. Succumbing to that temptation, Entrapta becomes an inventor in whom Catra's faith in her immense potential soon bears fruit with powerful technology enabling a grand scheme of conquest, even if Entrapta still essentially rationalizes herself as being neutral in her abstract pursuits, much like the real-life Wernher von Braun's participation in Nazi Germany's V-2 ballistic missile program.

Entrapta is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series and by Christine Woods in the 2018 series.

False Face[edit]

False Face is a member of The Evil Horde who only appears once throughout the series' run. In this episode, it is established that his power is to mimic the appearance of anyone he wishes. It is never clarified whether he could mimic another character's powers as well as their appearance.

In the episode, he is shown taking the form of Prince Highcliff, who had been visiting Bright Moon. Once in the form of the Prince, Hordak tells him that he will go to Bright Moon and spy on the Rebels in order to find a weak spot in their ranks. The Horde can then use this achilles' heel and defeat The Great Rebellion. False Face uses his disguise to enter Bright Moon and kidnaps Glimmer and steals the Moonstone, which powers Bright Moon. Back in the Fright Zone, False Face is thwarted by the real Prince and Glimmer retrieves the Moonstone. They rush back to Castle Bright Moon hopefully before The Horde can attack and overpower the people.

False Face is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series.

Grizzlor[edit]

AliasesGur’rull Gu’Rrooowarrrk
GenderMale

Grizzlor is a fictional character from the popular toy line Masters of the Universe by Mattel.[13]

A member of the Evil Horde, Grizzlor is a hairy man-beast creature from the wild, covered in thick brown fur and sharp claws, who attacks his opponents with the power of brute strength.[14] Most story media have portrayed him as a mindless brute with little in the way of intelligence.

Grizzlor is introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1985 among the first wave of Evil Horde figures. His figure was packaged with the mini-comic "Grizzlor: The Legend Comes Alive!" which portrays him as a kind of urban legend among the Eternians, a product of apparent "tall tales" about a wild man-beast which roams the night stalking its prey. After Buzz-Off disturbs his Heroic comrades with tales of the creature, it later transpires that Grizzlor is a real creature and has been hired by Hordak to fight against He-Man and the Heroic Warriors. Grizzlor is portrayed as a mindless, savage killing machine, who is defeated by being shown his own reflection in a mirror; he apparently fears nothing but the sight of his own gruesome visage.

Grizzlor also appears in several of the Masters of the Universe comic series.[15] A notable one of these are the UK comics published by London Editions, which portray him as one of the least intelligent of all the evil characters. In this series he is frequently used for comic relief and has a childlike mentality, implying he is not actually evil and has merely been misled by Hordak into helping with his schemes. An origin story in a later issue explains that he comes from the jungle world of Jungulia "on the outer edge of the spiral arm of the N24 galaxy" and is a member of a race of man-beast creatures. Although his race was peaceful, by the age of 428 he had developed a savage anger that shocked his family, and stumbled across a range of powerful weapons in a cave. His youthful nature led him to see them as toys, and play with them as such. When detected with the weapons by Horde Prime's sata-spies, they mistook him for an evil warrior and reported him to Hordak, who beamed him on board his ship, erasing all memories of Jungulia from his mind so he would willingly serve him. At first, upon seeing the advanced weapons, Hordak mistakenly believed Grizzlor must possess an incredible mental genius, but subsequently Grizzlor proved to have no remote intelligence, rendering Hordak confused as to why Horde Prime wanted him in the Horde.

Grizzlor appears in animated form in the cartoon series She-Ra: Princess of Power, in which the Horde are the main villains. The cartoon series plays down his savagery, presumably to make his character more suitable for a children's audience. At times it even seems as though he may be more human than animal, particularly in the early episode "Beast Island" in which he is competent enough to operate a computer console and command a series of Destructotanks. However, he is far from intelligent and is usually portrayed as a generic bumbling villain, constantly fouling up Hordak's schemes. Although he appears frequently in the cartoon he has no spotlight roles and is mostly consigned to background appearances.

Grizzlor also features in animated form in the updated Masters of the Universe cartoon series, produced in 2002 by Mike Young Productions, to promote the relaunched toy line. Mattel had intended to release the Horde characters among the next wave of villains, and they were intended to fill the role of main opposition to He-Man in the show's third season. The second-season episode "The Power of Grayskull" features the Horde in a flashback sequence, as an evil force from Ancient Eternia. Grizzlor was seen amongst Hordak, Leech, and Mantenna in a non-speaking role, and was imprisoned by King Grayskull in the dimension of Despondos together with Hordak and the rest of the Horde. However, since the toy line and cartoon were cancelled shortly afterwards, the third season was never made. Despite the cancellation of the line. Grizzlor made a cameo in a 2018 She-Ra series after appearing in 2002 He-Man Season 2, a Grizzlor mini statue figure has been sculpted and issued by toy sculptors the Four Horsemen.

Grizzlor appears in the Robot Chicken episode "1987", voiced by Seth MacFarlane. He alongside Beast Man try to prevent Mo-Larr from reaching Skeletor, only for the Eternian Dentist to use a drill on Grizzlor's eye. Tom Root voices Grizzlor in the episode "Slaughterhouse on the Prairie" where he accompanies Mantenna into attacking the Whispering Woods and slaughtering the Twiggets only for She-Ra to stop them and Grizzlor ends up stuck underneath She-Ra's foot.[16]

Grizzlor was voted No.4 in The 14 Least Masterful Masters of the Universe by Io9.[17]

Grizzlor was No.6 in 10 Weird Masters Of The Universe Action Figures From The 1980s.[18]

Horde Prime[edit]

The supreme ruler of the galaxy, Horde Prime was created by Filmation for the She-Ra cartoon but has since crossed over to Masters of the Universe as well.

Horde Prime is the ruler of the intergalactic Evil Horde.[9] He is only seen surrounded by smoke. His full true form has never been seen, though the episode For Want of a Horse confirms that he has two heads. A metallic arm comes out of the cloud of smoke when he is outraged or angered. Horde Prime has a son named Prince Zed who calls Hordak his uncle, indicating that Horde Prime and Hordak may be brothers or brothers-in-law.

In the Masters of the Universe comics published in the United Kingdom by London Edition Magazines, Horde Prime appears as a regular sized bearded humanoid with antenna which protrude though his helmet.

A Horde Prime action figure was finally released in 2012 for the MOTU Classics toyline, sculpted by the Four Horsemen. It includes two interchangeable heads, one based on his UK comics design and the other resembles his brother Hordak. The latter head also includes a helmet to represent his Filmation look.

Horde Prime is voiced in the series by Lou Scheimer.

Imp[edit]

Imp is a shapeshifting spy who helps out Hordak. Imp more often than not tries to stay on the right side of Hordak to avoid incurring his wrath. He points out to Hordak when other members of the Evil Horde fail in their different missions, and encourages Hordak to vent his anger on them. Because of this nature Imp is hated by most other members of The Horde. It is not just The Horde who have a dislike for Imp, but also members of The Great Rebellion.

In one episode, Imp attempts to set up Kowl as a Horde spy, by planting Horde coins in his bed. Some of The Rebellion think Kowl may be a traitor, but Adora believes he is innocent. Later on in the episode it is revealed that Imp was the one responsible for the coins and that Kowl is innocent. The Rebels apologize to Kowl for not trusting him. Imp's main task is due to his shape-shifting abilities. He is tasked to spy on members of The Rebellion, and report back to Hordak, which has been shown on several occasions, such as informing Hordak of the Red Knight and the birth of Swift Wind's baby on Unicorn Island.

It seems that without Hordak, Imp has little influences within The Horde, being more like a lapdog. Imp is actually rather distinctive amongst the Horde, as he is one of their few members with the ability to fly.

Imp makes a appearance in the 2018 series. Imp's shapeshifting abilities are not shown, however, he is still employed as a spy and can record and play back overheard conversation.

Imp is voiced by Erika Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Inspector Darkney[edit]

Inspector Darkney is the Horde Inspector that works for Horde Prime.

Inspector Darkney is voiced by Lou Scheimer.

Leech[edit]

A member of the Evil Horde, Leech is an amphibian-like creature of a large and bulky build with green skin and suction pads on his hands, feet and mouth. It is these suction pads that provide him with his main power: to suck and drain the life-force from his opponent, rendering them helpless against him. In the cartoon, he didn't have the "extra leech-like mouth" that the figure had. Instead, he used his suction cups to drain his enemies' life force.[19]

The second season episode of the 2002 series "The Power of Grayskull" features the Horde in a flashback sequence, as an evil force from Ancient Eternia. Leech is seen among them in a non-speaking role, and was imprisoned by King Grayskull in the dimension of Despondos together with Hordak and the rest of the Horde. Leech does not appear in the 2018 series assumed he is still resided in Despondos along with Mantenna after the 2002-2004 series.

Leech is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

CBR voted Leech 3rd worst he man toy.[20]

Mantenna[edit]

Mantenna is a member of the Evil Horde.[21] He is a creature with four legs and pop-out antenna eyes. He can fire energy beams of different varieties from his eyes, such as stun beams, gravity distortion beams, and freeze rays. Mantenna is a nervous stuttering imbecile mainly used for comic relief, with a running gag that Hordak frequently sends him down a trap door in front of his throne for any number of reasons. Although, once or twice Mantenna actually turns the tables on Hordak and sends him plummeting down his own trap. The cartoon design gave Mantenna yellow eyes, whereas the toy has blood-shot white eyes, and looks considerably more fearsome than the Filmation version.

Mantenna and the other original Horde warriors are featured in a flashback in the 2002 episode "The Power of Grayskull". Mantenna does not appear in the 2018 series assumed he is still resided in Despondos along with Leech after the 2002-2004 series. While not featured heavily, his appearance is far more serious and evil looking than it had been in She-Ra.

Mantenna is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

CBR voted Mantenna 6th worst he man toy.[20]

Modulok[edit]

Modulok is a multi-bodied monster who can reform himself into thousands of different shapes to confuse his enemies.[21] He is a member of the Evil Horde, though in some cartoon appearances is seen to work for himself. According to the He-Man comics, Modulok was originally a petty thief called Galen Nycoff who was mutated into Modulok while attempting to escape from the Space Prison. He is also known for creating Multi-Bot. He is one of the few Horde figures to not wear a Horde bat emblem. This may be attributed to his origin as one of Skeletor's minions, who, despondant with Skeletor's rule, fled to Etheria and offered his services to Hordak. He does not have any major roles in the original He-Man cartoon because it was drawing to a close before the Evil Horde figures were released.

Modulok is voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the 80s series and by Joe Amato in the 2018 series.

Multi-Bot[edit]

A member of the Evil Horde, Multi-Bot is a robot composed of multiple body parts which he can reform at will into thousands of different shapes. He is a robotic creation and counterpart of the character Modulok whose action figure also consisted of numerous different body parts which could be locked together in many different ways. He was marketed as the "evil robot of a thousand bodies". He is designed to allow his body parts to reconfigure with those of Modulok's also. Their combined cyborg form is known as Mega-Beast. Multi-Bot only appears in the "She-Ra" cartoon because the original "He-Man" cartoon finished its production when the Evil Horde were newly introduced. His cartoon design is vastly different from the toy, as it was based on early concept art.

Multi-Bot is voiced by Lou Scheimer in the 1980s series.

Octavia[edit]

Octavia is an octopus woman from Octopus Cove. She is the Horde commander at a port near The Sea of Sigh, a small Etherian ocean.[6][22] Although she caught She-Ra in her tentacles upon first meeting her, the Octopus lady proved to be no match for the Princess of Power. Sea Hawk on the other hand was not nearly as successful at defending himself from Octavia, who even brandished hidden swords when challenged by the pirate. After being seized by her tentacles, Sea Hawk appeared to be drained of energy, suggesting that Octavia has abilities similar to Leech. She was also vastly more intelligent than the average Horde villain.

Octavia appears in a flashback in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power as a Horde force captain, having been injured by a younger Catra during training.

Octavia is voiced by Melendy Britt in the 1980s series.

Princess Scorpia[edit]

Scorpia is a female humanoid with scorpion traits. She appeared in the first season of the show as one of the Horde's main warriors.[6] She seemed to have jurisdiction over a region called the Crimson Waste, where she owned a scorpion-shaped domicile (with a throne room) replete with slaves.

Scorpia and Catra were often at loggerheads with each other, usually only working together as a last resort, although Scorpia ultimately had to obey Catra as a member of Catra's Force Squad.

Instead of hands, she possesses claw-like pincers, and a powerful tail which was used to capture opponents. Her tail makes her a powerful fighter. Her tail is at times a disadvantage to her as She-Ra used it several times to hurl her out of the way. She is susceptible to flattery, shown when Bow (Sea Hawk in the 2018 reboot) fooled her once into believing that he was an amorous Horde inspector and thus gained access into a secret Horde factory.

Scorpia owned a powerful tank called the Crawler, with a scorpion-shaped tail that shot sleep-rays, and she learned the hard way that she may be skilled at both technology and combat but isn't cut out to practice magic.

In the 2018 series, Scorpia is revealed to be a Princess but her family surrendered and joined the Horde, marking them as outcasts and shunned from the Princess Alliance. Her stature and appearance is more exaggerated, standing much taller than most characters with huge claw pincers. Her tail is explicitly used for the first time, delivering a paralysing sting to Glimmer. Her character is more simple-minded and far cheerier in disposition, but no less dangerous a warrior of the Horde for that personality.

Scorpia is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series and by Lauren Ash in the 2018 series.

Admiral Scurvy[edit]

Admiral Scurvy is a member of the Horde who oversees their naval operations on the Horde Dreadnought. He is also a rival of Sea Hawk.

Admiral Scurvy is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series.

Squall[edit]

Squall is Admiral Scurvy's pet cat who is overweight and wears an eyepatch.

Shadow Weaver[edit]

Shadow Weaver is a vastly powerful Horde witch in a hooded robe who commands an array of dark magic and an encyclopedic knowledge of mystical lore.[6]

Shadow Weaver began as a practicing apprentice sorceress originally from the Kingdom of Mystacor. She, along with a rival sorceress named Castaspella, were being trained by a great Etherian sorcerer, Norwyn. When Hordak arrived on Etheria, he promised Shadow Weaver great power in exchange for information about rebel leadership, to which she agreed. Originally only a second-rate sorceress herself, her capabilities were greatly increased through a magical gem, one that was responsible for a devastating unforeseen physical transformation. While Shadow Weaver was absorbing the power of the Horde's "dark gem", Norwyn discovered her and realized Shadow Weaver's great betrayal. He then destroyed the gem, severing her link with the gem but not before she had taken a third of its power, inducing an irreversible change in her, mentally and physically. Shadow Weaver betrayed Norwyn and Castaspella, and joined The Horde forever.

From the first episodes of She-Ra, it seems that Shadow Weaver acted as a sort of adoptive mother for Adora on Hordak's orders.

In the 2018 series, Shadow Weaver wears a mask and a opened long hair rather wearing a hood. She is shown in the trailer as having a particular enmity with Glimmer. She used to be named Light Spinner but changed it after she betrayed her kingdom and joined the Horde as Hordak's second in command. For years, she favored Adora over Catra during their upbringing and was determined to reclaim Adora when she defected to the Rebellion against Lord Hordak's orders for such a priority. Catra was assigned to that task to her mounting resentment, but was dismissed as incompetent by Shadow Weaver in light of her failures.

However, Shadow Weaver was no more successful in her personal efforts and Catra is able to eventually outdo her when she successfully recruits the brilliant inventor and former-Rebel Entrapta to the Horde. When Shadow Weaver learns to her outrage that Hordak now favors Catra's endeavors to the point of authorizing use of the Black Garret runestone for a grand scheme, the source of Shadow Weaver's own mystic power, Shadow Weaver unsuccessfully resists with force only to be defeated and imprisoned by Catra.

Shadow Weaver is voiced by Linda Gary in the 1980s series and by Lorraine Toussaint in the 2018 series.

Spyster[edit]

Spyster is a member of the Evil Horde. He is a for hire spy (hence the name) and works for Hordak after being paid. He appeared in only one episode in season 2 titled "The Inspector."

Spystr is voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the 1980s series.

Vultak[edit]

Vultak is a vulture-like man with a beak-like nose, vulture wings, and vulture talons for feet. He works for the Horde where he runs Hordak's Zoo and regularly hunts new creatures for this facilities.

Besides his ability to fly, he can transform into a vampiric black shadow.

Vultak is voiced by George DiCenzo in the 1980s series.

Minor characters[edit]

  • General Sunder (voiced by George DiCenzo) - General Sunder was once one of Hordak's prime army generals in the Horde, but is convinced by She-Ra to change his ways, and leaves the Horde to live a peaceful life as a quiet farmer with his wife, Mally, and young daughter, Telzy. But when the Rebels need help, he is still ready to use his battle skills to aid them.
  • King Micah (voiced by George DiCenzo) - King Micah is Queen Angella's husband and Glimmer's father. He was captured by the Horde for over 15 years until he was finally rescued and reunited with his family. In the 2018 series, he is deceased, having been killed in battle against the Horde.
  • Hunga the Harpy (voiced by Melendy Britt) - Queen Hunga is a harpy who is the ruler of the Harpies on Talon Mountain who has antagonized She-Ra on different occasions.

She captures Glimmer and uses her as bait to draw out She-Ra, but later discovers Hordak's deception. Huntara leaves Etheria soon after, but vows that the next time she and She-Ra meet, it will be as friends. Although she only appeared in one episode, Huntara is one of the series' most popular characters. Her look was loosely based on Grace Jones.
