!!He-Man/Adam of the House of Randor
[[quoteright:173:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heman_8803.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Creator/DolphLundgren (Live-Action Movie); Creator/GaryChalk (He-Man only, New Adventures); Doug Parker (Adam only, New Adventures); CamClarke ('02)
-->"I have the power!"

Adam, prince of Eternia and descendant of the legendary King Grayskull, transforms into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, to protect Eternia from the forces of evil.

* ALadyOnEachArm:In the DC Comics story "Fate is the Killer!" Prince Adam arrives this way to a party, to whick Man-At-Arms comments "Only two wenches, lad? You're losing your charm!"
* ArmCannon: A wrist-mounted laser as Adam.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: TropeNamer. In ''The New Adventures of He-Man'', he would actually say "By the Power of Eternia", though.
* CampStraight: As Prince Adam in the 80's cartoon, though most of these characteristics Adam (supposedly) exhibited on purpose to help hide his true identity as He-Man.
* ClarkKenting: In the '80s version of the franchise, the only actual difference between his Adam and He-Man appearance is that... he wears more clothes as Adam. Averted in the 2002 cartoon, where Prince Adam is notably skinnier and younger-looking than He-Man.
* CoolSword
* DeadpanSnarker: In the cartoons, both as Adam and as He-Man, though the nature of the snark varies depending of the show; in the '80s cartoon it's more good-natured, while in the 2002 cartoon it's notably edgier.
* HalfHumanHybrid
* HenshinHero: One Western example before it was made trendy in TheNineties.
* TheHero
* HeroesWantRedheads: Teela, though how red her hair was depended on the series.
** [[SheRaPrincessOfPower Castaspella]] also got his attention, probably because she was the only gal on Etheria to flirt with him as Adam and He-Man.
* ImportantHaircut: In ''The New Adventures of He-Man'', but in reverse: He-Man's hair inexplicably (but quite explicitly) gets ponytail-length longer during a moment of awesome mystical display.
* InvincibleHero
* LargeHam: '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2Nr2xbuXHc I HAVE THE POWER!!!]]'''
* LoinCloth
* ManChild: Adam exhibits a childish behavior and plays blind chicken, presumably as part of his ObfuscatingStupidity act.
* NiceGuy: Especially in the Filmation series, bordering on TheMessiah. You would ''hope'' the Most Powerful Man In The Universe would be a nice guy, though.
* RealMenWearPink: In the 80's cartoon.
** [[HoYay Pink with lavender tights]].
* RetCanon: At first, he was just He-Man, until the DC Comics created a SecretIdentity as Prince Adam, which was later added to the toyline.
* SamaritanSyndrome
* SecretKeeper: He knows Teela's mother is the Sorceress.
* SeparatedAtBirth: His twin sister Adora was kidnapped by Hordak when they were babies.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe
* TransformationTrinket: The Sword of Power
* '''[[WorldsStrongestMan MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE UNIVERSE!]]'''
* XMeetsY: ConanTheBarbarian meets [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]

!!Battle Cat/Cringer
[[quoteright:263:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Battlecat_3064.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's)

Prince Adam's pet tiger, who transforms into Battle Cat, He-Man's fighting tiger.

* BerserkButton: As Cringer, he almost always lives up to his name, but is usually the opposite if Adam is in great danger. For example, in the 2002 series, Cringer attacks a Snake Man for trying to eat Adam.
* BigEater
* CowardlySidekick: as Cringer
* Expy: Cringer, (Battle Cat less so) especially in the 80's series, was little more than a green tiger version of ScoobyDoo.
* HiddenDepths: Regardless of continuity, Cringer can be a lot braver than even he thinks he's capable of.
* HorseOfADifferentColor
* MegaNeko: as Battle Cat
* TalkingAnimal: 80's cartoon only
* TeamPet
* UndyingLoyalty: Cringer may be a scaredy cat, but he always stands by Adam - even when faced with all of Skeletor's Evil Warriors and the Council of Evil.

!!Buzz-Off/Tzzzzt zzz zzTTTzz
[[quoteright:127:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/buzzoff_3585.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's); Brian Dobson ('02)

King of the Andreenids, a race of bee people.

* BeePeople
* TheLancer
* NobodyCallsMeChicken
* OddFriendship: With Stratos in the 2002 series.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He was Stratos' replacement as the flying Heroic Warrior in the 80's.
** DivergentCharacterEvolution: the 2002 series gave him an arrogant personality that differentiated him from Stratos.

!!Clamp Champ
[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clampchamp_7619.jpg]]

King Randor and Queen Marlena's bodyguard, armed with a clamp weapon.

* OutOfFocus: Due to being one of the latest Heroic Warriors to appear before the toyline's cancellation (his wave-mates in the toyline, King Randor and the Sorceress, had more luck since they began as {{Toyless Toyline Character}}s, therefore having more time to shine even before being released as figures). At least he managed to get enough screentime in the latest comics to avert becoming an AdvertisedExtra like the second wave of Galactic Guardians.
* SuperReflexes
* SuperSenses: He cannot be taken by surprise.

!!Extendar/Doodon
[[quoteright:72:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/extendar_9703.jpg]]
-->"I am Extendar, tower of power!"

A palace guard changed by Hordak into a cyborg with extendable arms, legs, neck and torso. Despite his powers being a Horde creation, he uses them for good.

* {{Cyborg}}
* IJustWantToBeBadass: Before getting his powers. Hordak promised him power if he accepted to become a cyborg, without telling him he intended to use him for evil purposes.
* [[TelescopingRobot Telescoping Cyborg]]: He can extend his neck, torso, arms and legs.

!!Fearless Photog/Jey

Gwildor's apprentice, who due to a miscalculation got accidentaly fused with his invention, the Photog Emulator, getting the power of draining his enemies' energy.

!!Fisto/Malcom
[[quoteright:75:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fisto_4747.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Mark Acheson ('02)

Man-At-Arms' brother, who has a metallic right hand. Generally considered the second strongest Heroic Warrior, after He-Man himself.

* AloofBigBrother: To Man-At-Arms though only in the 2002 series.
* NamesTheSame: Fisto's toy even had to be called "Battle Fist" to avoid confusion with StarWars' Kit Fisto, despite being created like 20 years earlier.
* PowerFist

!!Gwildor
[[quoteright:83:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gwildor_6921.jpg]]
-->Played by: Creator/BillyBarty (Live-Action Movie)

Thenurian locksmith and inventor.

* {{Expy}}: His sole reason for existing is because they couldn't do a live-action Orko.
* GadgeteerGenius: Created the "cosmic key," allowing a person to travel between dimensions.
* {{Hobbits}}: He sure looks like one anyway.
* LittlePeople

!!King Randor of the House of Miro
[[quoteright:106:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kingrandor_2073.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Michael Donovan ('02)
-->"To have one such as He-Man as my heir rather than Adam... now that would be a legacy any sovereign would be proud to leave his people."

Heroic ruler of Eternia. Younger son of King Miro, and Prince Adam's father.

* BadassNormal
* TheGoodKing
* HappilyMarried: to Queen Marlena
* HeroesWantRedheads
* HotDad
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Particularly in the '02 version, where he can hold his own in battle ''and'' is excellent at diplomacy.

!!Man-At-Arms/Duncan
[[quoteright:129:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manatarms_5361.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's); Jon Cypher (Live-Action Movie); Gary Chalk ('02)

King Randor's right-hand man, inventor and friend, and one of his most valuable warriors. Also, Prince Adam's mentor, friend and confidant.

* ArmCannon: A wrist-mounted laser in the '80s series, a {{BFG}} in the '02 series.
* BadassMustache: He didn't have it at first, but it was added in the animated series and kept for later renditions.
* BadassNormal
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With He-Man
* TheSmartGuy
* SecretKeeper: For both Adam (He-Man) and the Sorceress (Teela's mother).
* TechnoWizard , MrFixIt
* TheFace

!!Man-E-Faces/Perkaedo
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manefaces_340.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

An actor who can change his face to become a human, robot or monster.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He began as a good guy who was transformed by Skeletor into an monster, and sometimes the struggle between human and monster caused the neutral robot personality to arise. Later characterisations show all the faces as the same heroic personality.
* MorphWeapon: Man-E-Faces has a weapon with three modes, much like himself. Staff, gun, and club — respectively well-suited to his human, robot, and monster faces.
* ThePowerOfActing
* RoboSpeak: His robotic face
* SplitPersonality: in the original minicomics and the DC comics.

!!Mekaneck/Orius
[[quoteright:117:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mekaneck_7299.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Gabe Khouth ('02)

Heroic human periscope. During a disaster, his neck was badly injured, so Man-At-Arms made him a mechanical extending neck.

* {{Cyborg}}
* LongLostRelative: His son, kidnapped by Count Marzo.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: He extends his neck. This works well for reconaissance missions where he can act as a human periscope, but isn't very useful in combat.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: In 02's "Mekaneck's Lament," his power helps him defeat Count Marzo.

!!Moss Man/Kreann'Ot N'Norosh
[[quoteright:76:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mossman_549.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); John Payne ('02)

A plant-based hero who can manipulate plant matter.

* GreenThumb
* NatureSpirit: The '02 version is the guardian and living embodinent of everything pure and good about Eternia's flora.[[note]]The writers commented that they intended to make up for the Filmation version of the character never getting to do much due to his late appearance in the series, but feel they may have overpowered him. So he ended up turning up only rarely[[/note]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: It's been recently revealed that he fought alongside King Grayskull.

!!Orko
[[quoteright:163:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/orko_7777.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Gabe Khouth ('02)

A magician from the dimension of Trolla, who was stuck at Eternia by accident and became King Randor's jester.

* [[spoiler: AdaptationalVillainy: In the DC comic series, he is said to have betrayed the Master of the Universe to Skeletor, resulting in their initial defeat. And there is that figure with blue skin and dressed in red who rescues Skeletor after his loss to He-Man...]]
* AmusingAlien
* BeautifulAllAlong: It's explicitally said that under his goofy hat, Orko's face is very handsome, or at least the equivalent on his home planet. (At least we get to see his hair.)
* CanonImmigrant
* CloudCuckoolander: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yFBAj3SyeA As Hordak learned]], Orko's brain is...unique.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* FishOutOfWater: Orko is an extremely competent wizard at his home dimension; unfortunately Eternia is a place with different laws of physics, so his magic malfunctions there. He also loses his wand very shortly after arriving in Eternia, making his magic far more likely to backfire.
* IChooseToStay: In the '80s series and the '02 reboot, Orko is given chances to return permanently to Trolla, but he always chooses to stay in Eternia to help his friends.
* IneptMage
* KidAppealCharacter
* NeverBareheaded: He never removes his hat, as part of the Trollan custom that they never show their faces to anyone except their one true love. When he and Dree Elle showed each other their faces, they were kept offscreen; only shadows were shown.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Especially in the original series.
* NormalFishInATinyPond: Inverted; Orko was an archmage in Trolla. Too bad magic works differently in Eternia.
* OneOfTheKids: Even though he's an adult Trollan, he hangs around and plays games with visiting kids.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In the Filmation series he sometimes had an urban and/or Jersey accent.
** Probably because he was voiced by Filmation producer Lou Scheimer himself, who was from Pittsburgh.
* ParentalAbandonment: His Uncle Montork seems to be the only father figure he has.
* PluckyComicRelief
* SecretKeeper: For Adam (He-Man)
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Orko is afraid of dragons in an episode. But to quote the recurring line of the episode, "Who isn't?"
* YourMagicsNoGoodHere: On Trolla he is regarded as their greatest wizard, but on Eternia his spells rarely work the way he wants. It's eventually revealed that magic on Trolla works roughly the opposite as it does on Eternia.

!!Queen Marlena Glenn
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Erika Scheimer (She-Ra); Nicole Oliver ('02)

An astronaut from Earth who got stranded in Eternia and married King Randor, giving birth to Prince Adam and his sister Adora.

* AcePilot: In "The Rainbow Warrior" she shows her stuff by taking out most of Skeletor's air forces by herself.
* CanonImmigrant: Created for the DC Comics, then appeared in the cartoon and was added to the toyline's minicomics, to finally have a figure of her own after the 2011 SDCC.
* HappilyMarried
* HiddenDepths: In the 80s cartoon, she ends up leading a squadron of ships to rescue her husband and son from the clutches of Skeletor revealing her to be an extremely competent aerial fighter pilot on top of her astronaut skills despite having not been in the game for 20 years.
* TheHighQueen
* HotMom
* IChooseToStay: In the episode "Visitors from Earth", two astronauts offered her a chance to return to Earth but she said Eternia was her home now.
* SecretSecretKeeper: Several episodes hint at her knowing that Prince Adam is He-Man but the most blatent hint comes at the end of the episode where she reveals her fighter pilot skills: she deliberately rescues Adam first which allows him to transform into He-Man and rescue everyone else. When Adam later asks her why on earth she rescued him first, all she says is that she "had a feeling he'd know what to do". She doesn't come right out and admit she knows Adam is He-Man, but she does say "a mother always recognises her own son".
* ShoutOut: Her name could be a reference to pilot/astronaut [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Glenn John Glenn]].

!!Ram-Man
[[quoteright:113:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ramman_874.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

A warrior who uses his head as a battering ram.

* BoisterousBruiser: Mostly in the minicomics, but he still is in other versions to a lesser extent.
* DumbMuscle
* TheBigGuy
* UseYourHead
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes??: Ram-Man is afraid of the dark.

!!Rio Blast
[[quoteright:101:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rioblast_9992.jpg]]

A member of the Starband Marshalls from planet Loredos, who joined the Heroic Warriors of Eternia to catch Horde Prime.

* MoreDakka
* LethalChef: As Orko found out when he tasted his chili. He-Man then refused the meal.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: A cyborg cowboy.
* OddCouple: With Snout Spout in the Star comics.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In his case, it's effectively snakes. In the same comic issue where this is revealed [[FromBadToWorse he faces King Hiss]]

!!Roboto/Robot Model 9041
[[quoteright:95:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roboto_4983.jpg]]

A robot built by Man-At-Arms to play chess, who upgraded himself as a warrior robot.

* ClockworkCreature: According to the toy's visible inner works.
* RoboSpeak

!!Rokkon
[[quoteright:74:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rokkon_484.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (She-Ra)

A young member of the Rock People.

* DistressedDude: There are several versions of how the Stone people arrive to Eternia (or Etheria), and in most of them Rokkon is captured or incapacitated so Stonedar and He-Man (or She-Ra) have to rescue him.

!!Rotar
[[quoteright:78:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rotar_8967.jpg]]

A guard of the royal palace until one of Skeletor's attacks left him injured. Man-At-Arms saved him by using a machine that changed him into a spinning cyborg.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* WeCanRebuildHim

!!Snout Spout/Jaxton
[[quoteright:142:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snoutspout_5533.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (She-Ra)

An Etherian peasant who was captured by Hordak and turned into a cyborg with an elephant-like head that allows him to shoot water out of the trunk. He escaped to Eternia and joined the Heroic Warriors.

* AnAxeToGrind: He is a firefighter, it comes with the job.
* CantStayNormal
* {{Cyborg}}: His elephant head is cybernetic.
* OddCouple: With Rio Blast in the Star comics. He's the neat and by-the-book one.
* UnwillingRoboticisation: Hordak kidnapped him to make him into a cyborg, rather than trick him like he did with Extendar.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Snout Spout can... fire water out of his trunk. However, he subverts the trope by using his powers (in creative yet not-so-awesome ways) to shoot ice, vapor or just water when the situation requires it.


!!The Sorceress of Castle Grayskull/Teela'Na
[[quoteright:136:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sorceress_6481.jpg]]
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Christina Pickles (Live-Action Movie); Venus Terzo (New Adventures); Nicole Oliver ('02)
* BlessedWithSuck: Think about it. Blessed with the ability to discern almost all the things happening on Eternia, having extremely powerful magic at her command...and yet, she was unable to leave the Castle without being reduced to flying around as a bird with very low-level telepathy. One imagines the limitations got quite frustrating. The very few times she was able to overcome these limitations were explicitly stated to be special circumstances.
* CanonImmigrant: At least her bird-like looks.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep
* HerHeartWillGoOn
* HotMom
* LukeIAmYourFather: The Sorceress is Teela's mother, a fact known only by herself, Man-At-Arms and Adam/He-Man.
* ShesGotLegs
* TeamMom
* TrulySingleParent: Unless you count Skeletor, who used the power of Point Dread to clone the Sorceress to create Teela.
** Except in the 2002 series, where it happened the old-fashioned way.

!!Stonedar
[[quoteright:63:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stonedar_4589.jpg]]
-->Played by: [=George DiCenzo=] (She-Ra)

Leader of the Rock People.

* TechnicalPacifist

!!Stratos of the house of Avion
[[quoteright:78:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stratos_2204.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

Leader of the bird people from Avion.

* BirdPeople
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: In the 2002 series, Stratos' voice is plainly based on SeanConnery's — apparently, it was felt that Stratos' beard brought Connery to mind.
* OddFriendship: With Buzz-Off in the 2002 series.
* TokenNonhuman: in the first few minicomics, before more non-human Heroic Warriors were added.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was going to be a villain.

!!Sy-Klone, Son of Dy-Lex
[[quoteright:106:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/syklone_3231.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); John Payne ('02)

!!Teela
[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teela_5417.jpg]]
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Chelsea Field (Live-Action Movie); Cathy Weseluck (New Adventures); Lisa Ann Beley ('02)

Captain of the royal guard and Man-At-Arms' adopted daughter, who has a crush on He-Man.

* ActionGirl
* ArmCannon: A wrist-mounted laser.
* BadassNormal
* GreenEyedMonster: In the 80s series she was annoyed whenever an attractive woman showed interest in Adam, like in "Song of Celice" where she gives the title character the stink-eye when they first meet.
* HappilyAdopted: By Man-At-Arms
* LadyOfWar
* LeotardOfPower
* LoinCloth: In the DC comics.
* LukeIAmYourFather: The 2002 series hints that her biological father is either Man-At-Arms or his brother Fisto.
* ShesGotLegs

!!Zoar

He-Man's fighting falcon.

* DependingOnTheWriter: Can be the Sorceress' pet falcon or the Sorceress herself.

!!Skeletor/Keldor of the House of Miro
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skeletor_463.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's); Frank Langella (Live-Action Movie); Campbell Lane (New Adventures); Brian Dobson ('02)
-->"Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man...Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?"

The older half-brother of King Randor, who tried to conquer Eternia and ended with his face horrifingly scarred and rechristened himself Skeletor, lord of destruction.

* AdaptionalBadass / AdaptionalVillainy: In the 2002 series. In the Filmation cartoon, he was such a SympatheticIneffectiveVillain, to the point of being a JerkassWoobie, that a number of episodes were written where he would team up with He-Man just to give some victories. In the 2002 series, he's a legitimately dangerous, and a total {{Jerkass}} to everyone around him to boot.
* ArchEnemy
* BadBoss
* BifurcatedWeapon: In the 2002 series.
* BigBad
* {{Bishonen}}: As Keldor
* CardCarryingVillain: From the ChristmasSpecial: "I don't want to feel good! I want to feel evil!"
* DeadpanSnarker: He cracks more one-liners than anyone else on the show.
* EmergencyTransformation: from Keldor to Skeletor in the 2002 cartoon, and from charred Skeletor to cyborg Skeletor in the New Adventures minicomics.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Not always consistent, as he has outright asked He-Man if he ever considered doing anything evil. Skeletor has, however, been GenreSavvy enough to predict how the heroes will react to events. In "The Problem with Power," Skeletor correctly predicts how He-Man would react to thinking he killed someone.
* EvilLaugh: Especially prevalent in the Filmation cartoon.
** LaughingMad
* EvilSorcerer
* EvilUncle: [[spoiler: to Prince Adam]]
* GenreSavvy
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Upon seeing that his handsome face has been reduced to nothing but a skull floating above his shoulders, Keldor/Skeletor cackles madly.
* HalfHumanHybrid: His father is the Eternian equivalent to human, while his mother is a Gar (Sy-Klone-s race).
* ISurrenderSuckers
* ItsAllAboutMe: In the 2002 series, he makes it clear he wants power for himself, and when he's the closest to winning and thinks he get his hands on the Elders' power, he says he has no intent of sharing the spoils.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil: While the original minicomics played him as a serious villain, the Filmation cartoon (thanks to censors constantly breathing down Filmation's neck) turned him into a comedic figure, making him a LaughingMad DeadpanSnarker. The 2002 cartoon made him a little more menacing and more of a legitimate threat, but otherwise stayed fairly true to the sniggering, wisecracking persona of the Filmation cartoon.
* ManipulativeBastard: Mostly in the New Adventures, where he frequently plays with Flogg's ego to get what he wants, but he also have his moments in the other series (like the 80's episode "The Problem with Power").
** Had a good number of moments of this in the 2002 series.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: During the first season of the New Adventures of He-Man, Skeletor finds a crystal that changes him from his basic "New Adventures" looks to an armor based on the Disks of Doom Skeletor figure.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* ObviouslyEvil: His unsubtle visage is the article's picture.
* PetTheDog: Skeletor really cares for his pets (Panthor in Eternia, Grr in Nordor), which is ironically more notorious [[KickTheDog when he betrays everyone else]] (in "Escape from Gaolotia" and "Council of Evil"). He can leave his allies to rot/die, but he will keep his pet at his side.
* PurpleIsPowerful
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SkullForAHead
* SmugSnake
* [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over Eternia]]
* ThatManIsDead: Keldor died when he got a face full of acid. Skeletor was born shortly afterwards. Figuratively speaking, of course.
* TrueMeaningOfChristmas: He discovers this in the ChristmasSpecial and makes a brief HeelFaceTurn, though only begrudgingly whilst wondering what was coming over him.
* VocalDissonance: In the original series. He's a musclebound warlord with a skull for a face, but his voice is brittle and high-pitched.

!!Beast Man/Raqquill Rqazz
[[quoteright:59:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beast-man_9043.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Tony Carroll (Live-Action Movie); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

-->"I've waited a long time for this..."

A sword-wielding mercenary who expects to defeat He-Man some day.

* MasterSwordsman

!!Blast-Attak
[[quoteright:55:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blastattak_1864.jpg]]

A robot who is a walking time-bomb. Sometimes he's portrayed as part of the Snake Men.

* EasilyDetachableRobotParts: There are some stories where he doesn't explode, but instead divides to fight two enemies at once.
* VerbalTic: Quite literally, because he says "Tic" between sentences.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Blast-Attak is a robot who can explode; why go through the trouble of building a sophisticated robot if it's just to have it blow itself up?

!!Clawful/(real name pronounced through a series of claw clicks)
[[quoteright:84:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clawful_2866.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

A member of the Karikoni, an Eternian race of crustacean warriors from Orkas Island.

* AWizardDidIt: His MOTU Classics bio reveals his change from the DumbMuscle of the 2002 series to the keen warrior of the 80's series as the result of a spell cast by Evil-Lyn.
* Demoted To Extra: Same problem as Whiplash see below. If you like his Filmation incarnation, guess what; you're not going to like what the 2002 series did to him.
* DumbMuscle: 2002 series only.
* {{Expy}}: The 2002 series' "The Island" introduced Clawful's cousin, who was intelligent and had ambition. He's basically Clawful of the '80s series.
* GiantEnemyCrab
* RightHandOfDoom: His right claw is much larger than his left -- ''much'' much larger in the 2002 series. This is based on real fiddler crabs.
* SimpletonVoice: 2002 series; ridiculously exaggerated, at that.
* TheStarscream: '80s series only.
* TooDumbToLive: The 2002 series. Seriously, he doesn't even recognize the language of his own species.

!!Draego-Man

A recent addition to the Evil Warriors created for the MOTU Classics toyline.

* PlayingWithFire

!!Evil-Lyn/Evelyn Morgan Powers
[[quoteright:78:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evillyn_3283.jpg]]
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Meg Foster (Live-Action Movie); Kathleen Barr ('02)

An evil sorceress who works for Skeletor, but expects to overthrow him some day.

* DaddysGirl: But a subversion of DaddysLittleVillain, as her father is good.
* DarkActionGirl
* EvenEvilHasStandards[=/=]EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She is willing to help Skeletor in his attempt for world domination, but she will not betray her father and returns his magical Ramstone back to him when Skeletor loses it.
* EvilAlbino: Possibly. Pale skin, purple eyes, and white hair from at least late adolescence/young adulthood, according to one flashback.
* EvilSorcerer
* HotWitch
* LadyOfWar
* LeotardOfPower
* PurpleIsPowerful
* PunnyName
* ShesGotLegs
* TheStarscream: The 2002 series she even lampshades that Skeletor taught that deception and treachery "were the cornerstones of power" and she learned his lessons. They are both amused.
* WelcomeBackTraitor: In the 2002 series, Skeletor, after He-Man saves her from the Pool of Shadows (where Skeletor aimed to sacrifice her into the Forsaken Realm to as a deal with the dimension's [[EldritchAbomination native population]] as punishment for her releasing King Hiss), Skeletor lets her back into his ranks with no problems, with the two of them even sharing some laughs about what happened.

!!Faker
[[quoteright:141:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/faker_1911.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's)

A robot duplicate of He-Man, created to trick the Eternians.

* DependingOnTheWriter:
** His appearance: he's either [[GlamourFailure always blue and thus a failed attempt as a He-Man duplicate]], or he's blue but can change color to disguise as He-Man, or even is always identical to He-Man (despite the toy's blue appearance).
** His strength: he might have strength equal to He-Man's, or just average strength with his similarity to He-Man limited to appearance.
* EvilKnockoff
* FaceHeelTurn: It was implied by the '02 series writers and confirmed by his Classics bio that he is the same robot Man-At-Arms used as a decoy He-Man. It's still an arguable example since he wasn't sentient when he worked for Man-At-Arms.
* MythologyGag: In his appearance in "The Courage of Adam," he looks exactly like He-Man. When he's knocked out, however, he briefly turns blue before de-activating.

!!Gygor

A former warlord of the Vine Jungle, who was in suspended animation until Evil-Lyn freed him to bolster Skeletor's forces.

* BreathWeapon: He throws sparks from his mouth, an ability not shown in the movie but added for the figure.
* CanonImmigrant
* KilledOffForReal
* TheUnintelligible: Only in the movie, where he expressed himself through hisses. When he appeared in comics, he talked normal.

!!Scareglow/Karak Nul
[[quoteright:108:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scareglow_7338.jpg]]
-->"In my glow, even brave men tremble!"

A skeletal warrior whose body can glow and cause everybody who stares at it to see his/her greatest fears.

* MultipleChoicePast: He came too late to the toyline to get enough spotlight, yet he got so popular (specially due to looking similar to Skeletor)that every writer tried to give his own interpretation: a being summoned from the reaches of space and time, a copy created by Skeletor in his own image or the king of another dimension. The current version is that he's the ghost of a bounty hunter, summoned by Skeletor like in the first version.
* PowerGlows
* SkullForAHead

!!Screeech

Skeletor's savage bird.

* EvilCounterpart: To the "Sorceress' pet" version of Zoar

!!Spikor/Kleffton
[[quoteright:88:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spikor_8790.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's)

A warrior covered in spikes that give him the advantage in close combat. He has an extendable left arm with a trident as a hand.

* TheBlacksmith: Shown as such in a single minicomic, though then he created the Terror Claws, which would become Skeletor's new weapons for the rest of the toyline run.
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has them around his whole body.

!!Stinkor/Odiphus
[[quoteright:132:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stinkor_547.jpg]]
-->Played by: Brian Drummond ('02)

A petty Paleezean thief who got the power to emit an awful odor.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the 2002 reboot. The original was basically the ButtMonkey of the bad guys, hated so bad the ''only'' reason he was kept around was his smell weakened He-Man and only appeared in a mini comic. In the 2002 reboot, he's actually the one minion Skeletor ''liked'' because he was actually powerful and successful. In fact, he's one of the ''only'' villains to ever actually ''succeed'' at a mission (driving ''every'' dragon out of the country so Skeletor's newest weapon wouldn't have its natural predator present to defeat it).
* AscendedFanboy: Odiphus is shown to desperately want to be fighting for the bad guys, which he ultimately does as Stinkor.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Odiphus appears as a prisoner in "Snake Pit" before his appearance in "The Sweet Smell of Victory".
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Stinkor is a skunk-man who had the power of smelling so horribly he had to use a respirator to keep himself from being knocked out. You would think this is a useless or stupid ability, but the 2002 reboot shows just how deadly this can be.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Stinkor's stench is just as horrible to himself as it is others, which is why he always wears a breathing apparatus and mask.
* MeaningfulRename: He insists on not being called Odiphus anymore. He's Stinkor.
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TookALevelInBadass: Odiphus was a villain wannabe and - like the rest of his species - quite small in stature. The chemical accident in Tri-Klops' lab gave him his power, as well as made him taller and physically stronger.

!!Trap Jaw/Kronis
[[quoteright:113:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trapjaw_3837.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

An Evil Warrior who tried to turn by Skeletor, who left him severely injured. Tri-Klops remade him as a Cyborg with a mechanical jaw and a robotic right arm with interchangeable weapons.

* ArmCannon: one of his optional mechanical arms.
* Ax Crazy: Established as such in the original mini-comics.
* Badass: The 2002 origin comics establish him as this.
** Handicapped Badass: The fact that he's STILL a viable threat despite being an amputee establishes him as this.
* {{Cyborg}}
* HookHand: another optional hand
* Jerkass: Compared to Skeletor's other minions, he's easily on of the biggest assholes in this franchise. To date, he's betrayed no less than three allies: Mer-man after a team-up in an episode of the 80s Filmation cartoon, Stratos after the Enemy Mine episode in the 2002 series, and in his comics backstory from 2002, his bounty hunting partner.
* MeaningfulRename
* SwissArmyAppendage: Trap Jaw has several attachments he uses; approximately a dozen in the original cartoon, though naturally the toy is limited to three.
* WeCanRebuildHim

!!Tri-Klops/Trydor Esooniux Scope
[[quoteright:53:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triklops_1357.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

A warrior with three eyes that give him different vision powers.

* CyberCyclops
* DumbMuscle: In the original series.
* EvilGenius: In the 2002 series.
* EyeBeams
* GadgeteerGenius
* MasterSwordsman: Mainly in the original minicomics. Kind of in the 2002 series.
* NobleDemon: Most obvious in the 80s minicomics, though the 2002 version counts as either this or some version of woobie (it could also be considered anti-villainous... maybe). So far, the only known incarnation of Tri-klops that DOESN'T qualify for this is the Filmation cartoon one, and that's only because that version had no personality to speak of.
* What Could Have Been: Like Whiplash, he was intended to be a Heroic Warrior. Unlike Whiplash however, his personality is still remarkably noble, possibly due to Beauty Equals Goodness (or Noble Demon at least, in this case.)

!!Twistoid
[[quoteright:192:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twistoid_9606.jpg]]
-->"Surrender!"

A spinning robot created by Skeletor stealing the machine used to create Rotar.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* EvilCounterpart: to Rotar
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: He was supposed to be the first of many, to oppose the Horde Troopers, but the machine used to make him was recovered by the Heroic Warriors.

!!Two-Bad/Tuvar and Baddrah
[[quoteright:147:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twobad_6053.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (both, 80's); Brian Drummond (Tuvar, '02); Mark Gibbon (Baddrah, '02)

A pair of bounty hunters who were merged by Skeletor due to their failure.

* BrainsAndBrawn
* DimishingVillainThreat: In the 2002 series. Individually, they both beat up the rest of the evil warriors, and proved a challenge for He-Man. When Skeletor merged them, they're harmless.
* DumbMuscle: Baddrah
* MultipleHeadCase
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original idea to Two-Bad was making one of the heads be a good guy and the other a bad guy. This was skipped and both were bad.
** In the 2002 series, they were going to be part of the Evil Warriors from the beginning, until their origin story was considered for a later episode.

!!Webstor/Araneus, Son of Raknus
[[quoteright:102:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/webstor_8247.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Brian Dobson ('02)

One of the few remaining Arachna, a race of spider people.

* EarlyBirdCameo: He is seen in the catacombs of Snake Mountain in "Snake Pit" before his appearance in "Council of Evil, Part 1."
* EscapeArtist
* EvilCounterpart: To Buzz-Of
* EvilGenius: Mostly in the less well-known British or German comics. His speciality are {{Death Trap}}s, since as an EscapeArtist he knows what would a captured enemy try.
* GiantSpider: More notorious in the 2002 series, but he was also supposed to be one in the 80s version of the franchise.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:WordOfGod says that when he collapses in "Web of Evil" from injuries inflicted by the Snake Men, he did die. However, the same WordOfGod says the death scene was intentionally ambiguous in the case of another writer wanting to use him.]]
* NobleDemon: Actually shows shades of this in some VERY obscure media. The first time this aspect of him is shown in the UK comic, it's an extreme case of HonorBefore Reason, as he intentionally leaves a way out of the trap he has put He-Man into, and after He-Man finds it, Webstor (right there) lets him go, telling he will face Skeletor's wrath for this. Unfortunately, this has been damn near forgotten everywhere else.
* RedemptionRejection: Refuses He-man's offer to join the Masters in the British comics, rather infuriatingly. He was probably too Genre Savvy not to know that spider people always, always belong with the villains.

!!Whiplash/Torrant Krazut
[[quoteright:107:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whiplash_MOTU_3437.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Creator/GaryChalk ('02)

Member of the reptilian species known as Caligars, who betrayed his people to join the Evil Warriors.
* DemotedToExtra: Going from the Filmation series to the 2002 series is... PAINFUL, to say the least, for a Whiplash fan. It's nothing but a sin to see how badly he was dumbed down, after his strong and intelligent Filmation showing.
* DumbMuscle
* What Could Have Been: Like Tri-klops, he was intended to be a Heroic Warrior.
* WhipItGood: He uses his tail as a whip.

* TheDreaded: In the 2002 series, everyone is afraid of him, EVERYONE, even King Hiss.
* EvilerThanThou: In the 2002 series, the backstory with King Greyskull reveals that he was this to King Hiss, hence part of why he so afraid of him.
* EvilVersuOblivion: In the 2002 series with the backstory mentioning the [[ExactWords Spell of Seperation]]. He intended to use it to separate Eternia into the light and dark hemispheres, except the spell ended up [[GoneHorriblyRight working better than he planned]] and nearly [[ApocalypseHow separated the very planet in two]], prompting him to halt it and hide away the pieces of the ArtifactOfDoom he used to cast the spell in the first place.
* EvilSorcerer
* EvilOverlord
* HeroKiller: In the 2002 series, he mortally wounds King Grayskull before being imprisoned in Despondos.

* TheDogBitesBack: He has turned the tables on Hordak a few times.

A beast capable to rearrange his body parts to take several different shapes.

Leader of the Snake Men, who can disguise himself as a human or shed his human skin to reveal his true form.

* ArchEnemy: To Zokak in the 2002 series. King Hiss seemed to feel his actual ArchEnemy was Hordak.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BenevolentBoss: In a stark contrast to either Skeletor or Hordak. The Snake Men have UndyingLoyalty to him for this reason.
* BigBad: In a BigBadDuumvirate with Skeletor in the 80s minicomics, and supplants Skeletor as this in the 2002 series.
* EvilVersusOblivion: When Evil-Lin tries to release Hordak in the 2002 series, he tries to stop her, and fails because He-Man interferes not realizing what he was trying to do till after he prevent Hordak's escape, as even he doesn't want Hordak to return.

* IAmAHumanitarian: A species trait, though in the 2002 series, he's the only shown actually doing it.
* KnightOfCerebus: Definitely in the 2002 series. If not this in the 80s minicomics, he at least is a "Knight of Canon" as the comics begin to have a tighter, somewhat more serious continuity after he appears.

* SmugSnake: Quite literally
* [[TheWormThatWalks The Snake That Walks]]: His true form is multiple snakes tangled together.

* AlliterativeName
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Khan predates Mattel's creation of the Snake Men, so he was originally just a snake-themed Evil Warrior working for Skeletor during the 80s. Upon the Snake Men's introduction to the toyline, Khan was [[RetCon retconned]] into being tied to them.

Luckily for Snake Face, later comics follow the TV version and he's shown as an imprisoned statue.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
* KilledForReal
* StoryBreakerPower / TooPowerfulToLive: Not so much if he was an one-shot villain, but that power is too much for a regular like him. The writers admitted that that they had to kill him off soon or his ability would could cause him to eclipse King Hiss as a threat.

!!Flogg
[[quoteright:182:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Flogg_2413.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alvin Sanders (New Adventures)
-->'''Flogg:''' When you return, I will be King of Primus!
-->'''Skeletor (to himself):''' No, Flogg, when I return, you will be mine. Primus will be mine. The whole Tri-Solar Galaxy will be mine! And He-Man will not be.

Leader of the Evil Mutants from planet Denebria.

* BigBadWannabe: To be fair, he and his mutant army were a threat big enough to have the Galactic Guardians asking for He-Man's help, but after Skeletor arrived, Flogg became his pawn without realising it.
* {{Foil}}: He and Skeletor are this to each other; Skeletor is smart, Flogg is sane.
* GeneralFailure: Flogg isn't a particularly intelligent mutant and his strategies often leave something to desire, but he manages to subvert this occasionally — he's not ''smart'', but he's a savvy and intimidating military commander who can draw up a battle plan that'll leave 'em reeling sometimes.
* PragmaticVillainy: He won't risk his ship or his troops unless there's a clear goal. Besides, he could incur the wrath of the Galactic Council by directly attacking the Primans, so he doesn't do it when it's for petty reasons.
* UnevilLaugh
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: A power he only had in the German/UK comics.
* WhipItGood

!!Butthead
[[quoteright:98:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BH_7675.jpg]]
-->Played by: Creator/ScottMcNeil (New Adventures)

A mutant who uses his hard head to attack (kind of an evil Ram Man).

* DumbMuscle
* FailOSuckyname: The cartoon mercifully refers to him solely as "BH", but that's still probably the single worst name they could have possibly come up with.
* HighClassGlass: After being hit by a "brain ray", he starts wearing a monocle. Later he completes the ensemble with a bowler hat and a fancy suit — though he doesn't take off his helmet at any point.
* NamesTheSame: with the character from BeavisAndButthead.
* UseYourHead

!!Lizorr
[[quoteright:86:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lizorr_7149.jpg]]

* DemotedToExtra: He already was an extra in the minicomics, only telling when there were ships approaching, while the TV series used him as a non-speaking background character.

Spy and reconaissance agent of the mutants.

-->Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

Flogg's bumbling second-in-command.

* CombatTentacles
* DumbIsGood: Not exactly good, but being the dumbest of the Mutants, he's also the most loyal and the closest to have a sense of honor.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: During Slushhead's wedding, he tries to respect the truce he promised to the Galactic Guardians, despite Skeletor and Flogg's schemes. Besides, he's very loyal to Flogg.
* HappilyMarried: He married in the episode "The Bride Of Slushhead"
* ManChild
* PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Slushhead!"
* PluckyComicRelief

!!Staghorn
[[quoteright:109:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Staghorn_NAHM_2336.jpg]]
-->Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

A hunter and tracker who attacks with the horns of his helmet.

* ArchEnemy: to Sagitar.
* BeardOfEvil
* DumbMuscle: Not as dumb as BH or Slushhead, but still more brawn than brains.
* HornedHumanoid: Not quite played straight, since his horns are clearly a part of his helmet, yet still invoked by the fact of being his most recognisable trait.
* TheStarscream: tries to depose Flogg in the episode "Mutiny in the Mothership".

!!He-Man/Adam of the House of Randor
[[quoteright:173:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/heman_8803.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Creator/DolphLundgren (Live-Action Movie); Creator/GaryChalk (He-Man only, New Adventures); Doug Parker (Adam only, New Adventures); CamClarke ('02)
-->"I have the power!"

Adam, prince of Eternia and descendant of the legendary King Grayskull, transforms into He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe, to protect Eternia from the forces of evil.

* ALadyOnEachArm:In the DC Comics story "Fate is the Killer!" Prince Adam arrives this way to a party, to whick Man-At-Arms comments "Only two wenches, lad? You're losing your charm!"
* ArmCannon: A wrist-mounted laser as Adam.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: TropeNamer. In ''The New Adventures of He-Man'', he would actually say "By the Power of Eternia", though.
* CampStraight: As Prince Adam in the 80's cartoon, though most of these characteristics Adam (supposedly) exhibited on purpose to help hide his true identity as He-Man.
* ClarkKenting: In the '80s version of the franchise, the only actual difference between his Adam and He-Man appearance is that... he wears more clothes as Adam. Averted in the 2002 cartoon, where Prince Adam is notably skinnier and younger-looking than He-Man.
* CoolSword
* DeadpanSnarker: In the cartoons, both as Adam and as He-Man, though the nature of the snark varies depending of the show; in the '80s cartoon it's more good-natured, while in the 2002 cartoon it's notably edgier.
* HalfHumanHybrid
* HenshinHero: One Western example before it was made trendy in TheNineties.
* TheHero
* HeroesWantRedheads: Teela, though how red her hair was depended on the series.
** [[SheRaPrincessOfPower Castaspella]] also got his attention, probably because she was the only gal on Etheria to flirt with him as Adam and He-Man.
* ImportantHaircut: In ''The New Adventures of He-Man'', but in reverse: He-Man's hair inexplicably (but quite explicitly) gets ponytail-length longer during a moment of awesome mystical display.
* InvincibleHero
* LargeHam: '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2Nr2xbuXHc I HAVE THE POWER!!!]]'''
* LoinCloth
* ManChild: Adam exhibits a childish behavior and plays blind chicken, presumably as part of his ObfuscatingStupidity act.
* NiceGuy: Especially in the Filmation series, bordering on TheMessiah. You would ''hope'' the Most Powerful Man In The Universe would be a nice guy, though.
* RealMenWearPink: In the 80's cartoon.
** [[HoYay Pink with lavender tights]].
* RetCanon: At first, he was just He-Man, until the DC Comics created a SecretIdentity as Prince Adam, which was later added to the toyline.
* SamaritanSyndrome
* SecretKeeper: He knows Teela's mother is the Sorceress.
* SeparatedAtBirth: His twin sister Adora was kidnapped by Hordak when they were babies.
* {{Stripperiffic}}

-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's)

Prince Adam's pet tiger, who transforms into Battle Cat, He-Man's fighting tiger.

* BerserkButton: As Cringer, he almost always lives up to his name, but is usually the opposite if Adam is in great danger. For example, in the 2002 series, Cringer attacks a Snake Man for trying to eat Adam.
* BigEater
* CowardlySidekick: as Cringer
* Expy: Cringer, (Battle Cat less so) especially in the 80's series, was little more than a green tiger version of ScoobyDoo.
* HiddenDepths: Regardless of continuity, Cringer can be a lot braver than even he thinks he's capable of.
* HorseOfADifferentColor
* MegaNeko: as Battle Cat
* TalkingAnimal: 80's cartoon only
* TeamPet
* UndyingLoyalty: Cringer may be a scaredy cat, but he always stands by Adam - even when faced with all of Skeletor's Evil Warriors and the Council of Evil.

[[quoteright:127:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/buzzoff_3585.jpg]]

King of the Andreenids, a race of bee people.

* BeePeople
* TheLancer
* NobodyCallsMeChicken
* OddFriendship: With Stratos in the 2002 series.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He was Stratos' replacement as the flying Heroic Warrior in the 80's.
** DivergentCharacterEvolution: the 2002 series gave him an arrogant personality that differentiated him from Stratos.

!!Clamp Champ
[[quoteright:123:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clampchamp_7619.jpg]]

King Randor and Queen Marlena's bodyguard, armed with a clamp weapon.

* OutOfFocus: Due to being one of the latest Heroic Warriors to appear before the toyline's cancellation (his wave-mates in the toyline, King Randor and the Sorceress, had more luck since they began as {{Toyless Toyline Character}}s, therefore having more time to shine even before being released as figures). At least he managed to get enough screentime in the latest comics to avert becoming an AdvertisedExtra like the second wave of Galactic Guardians.
* SuperReflexes
* SuperSenses: He cannot be taken by surprise.

!!Extendar/Doodon
[[quoteright:72:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/extendar_9703.jpg]]
-->"I am Extendar, tower of power!"

A palace guard changed by Hordak into a cyborg with extendable arms, legs, neck and torso. Despite his powers being a Horde creation, he uses them for good.

* {{Cyborg}}
* IJustWantToBeBadass: Before getting his powers. Hordak promised him power if he accepted to become a cyborg, without telling him he intended to use him for evil purposes.

Man-At-Arms' brother, who has a metallic right hand. Generally considered the second strongest Heroic Warrior, after He-Man himself.

* AloofBigBrother: To Man-At-Arms though only in the 2002 series.
* NamesTheSame: Fisto's toy even had to be called "Battle Fist" to avoid confusion with StarWars' Kit Fisto, despite being created like 20 years earlier.
* PowerFist

!!Gwildor
[[quoteright:83:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gwildor_6921.jpg]]
-->Played by: Creator/BillyBarty (Live-Action Movie)

Thenurian locksmith and inventor.

* {{Expy}}: His sole reason for existing is because they couldn't do a live-action Orko.

* BadassNormal
* TheGoodKing
* HappilyMarried: to Queen Marlena
* HeroesWantRedheads

King Randor's right-hand man, inventor and friend, and one of his most valuable warriors. Also, Prince Adam's mentor, friend and confidant.

!!Man-E-Faces/Perkaedo
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/manefaces_340.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

An actor who can change his face to become a human, robot or monster.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He began as a good guy who was transformed by Skeletor into an monster, and sometimes the struggle between human and monster caused the neutral robot personality to arise. Later characterisations show all the faces as the same heroic personality.
* MorphWeapon: Man-E-Faces has a weapon with three modes, much like himself. Staff, gun, and club — respectively well-suited to his human, robot, and monster faces.
* ThePowerOfActing
* RoboSpeak: His robotic face
* SplitPersonality: in the original minicomics and the DC comics.

!!Mekaneck/Orius
[[quoteright:117:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mekaneck_7299.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Gabe Khouth ('02)

Heroic human periscope. During a disaster, his neck was badly injured, so Man-At-Arms made him a mechanical extending neck.

* {{Cyborg}}
* LongLostRelative: His son, kidnapped by Count Marzo.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: He extends his neck. This works well for reconaissance missions where he can act as a human periscope, but isn't very useful in combat.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: In 02's "Mekaneck's Lament," his power helps him defeat Count Marzo.

!!Moss Man/Kreann'Ot N'Norosh
[[quoteright:76:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mossman_549.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); John Payne ('02)

A plant-based hero who can manipulate plant matter.

* GreenThumb
* NatureSpirit: The '02 version is the guardian and living embodinent of everything pure and good about Eternia's flora.[[note]]The writers commented that they intended to make up for the Filmation version of the character never getting to do much due to his late appearance in the series, but feel they may have overpowered him. So he ended up turning up only rarely[[/note]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: It's been recently revealed that he fought alongside King Grayskull.

!!Orko
[[quoteright:163:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/orko_7777.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Gabe Khouth ('02)

A magician from the dimension of Trolla, who was stuck at Eternia by accident and became King Randor's jester.

* [[spoiler: AdaptationalVillainy: In the DC comic series, he is said to have betrayed the Master of the Universe to Skeletor, resulting in their initial defeat. And there is that figure with blue skin and dressed in red who rescues Skeletor after his loss to He-Man...]]
* AmusingAlien
* BeautifulAllAlong: It's explicitally said that under his goofy hat, Orko's face is very handsome, or at least the equivalent on his home planet. (At least we get to see his hair.)
* CanonImmigrant
* CloudCuckoolander: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yFBAj3SyeA As Hordak learned]], Orko's brain is...unique.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* FishOutOfWater: Orko is an extremely competent wizard at his home dimension; unfortunately Eternia is a place with different laws of physics, so his magic malfunctions there. He also loses his wand very shortly after arriving in Eternia, making his magic far more likely to backfire.
* IChooseToStay: In the '80s series and the '02 reboot, Orko is given chances to return permanently to Trolla, but he always chooses to stay in Eternia to help his friends.
* IneptMage
* KidAppealCharacter
* NeverBareheaded: He never removes his hat, as part of the Trollan custom that they never show their faces to anyone except their one true love. When he and Dree Elle showed each other their faces, they were kept offscreen; only shadows were shown.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Especially in the original series.
* NormalFishInATinyPond: Inverted; Orko was an archmage in Trolla. Too bad magic works differently in Eternia.
* OneOfTheKids: Even though he's an adult Trollan, he hangs around and plays games with visiting kids.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In the Filmation series he sometimes had an urban and/or Jersey accent.
** Probably because he was voiced by Filmation producer Lou Scheimer himself, who was from Pittsburgh.
* ParentalAbandonment: His Uncle Montork seems to be the only father figure he has.
* PluckyComicRelief
* SecretKeeper: For Adam (He-Man)
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Orko is afraid of dragons in an episode. But to quote the recurring line of the episode, "Who isn't?"
* YourMagicsNoGoodHere: On Trolla he is regarded as their greatest wizard, but on Eternia his spells rarely work the way he wants. It's eventually revealed that magic on Trolla works roughly the opposite as it does on Eternia.

!!Queen Marlena Glenn
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Erika Scheimer (She-Ra); Nicole Oliver ('02)

An astronaut from Earth who got stranded in Eternia and married King Randor, giving birth to Prince Adam and his sister Adora.

* AcePilot: In "The Rainbow Warrior" she shows her stuff by taking out most of Skeletor's air forces by herself.
* CanonImmigrant: Created for the DC Comics, then appeared in the cartoon and was added to the toyline's minicomics, to finally have a figure of her own after the 2011 SDCC.
* HappilyMarried
* HiddenDepths: In the 80s cartoon, she ends up leading a squadron of ships to rescue her husband and son from the clutches of Skeletor revealing her to be an extremely competent aerial fighter pilot on top of her astronaut skills despite having not been in the game for 20 years.
* TheHighQueen
* HotMom
* IChooseToStay: In the episode "Visitors from Earth", two astronauts offered her a chance to return to Earth but she said Eternia was her home now.
* SecretSecretKeeper: Several episodes hint at her knowing that Prince Adam is He-Man but the most blatent hint comes at the end of the episode where she reveals her fighter pilot skills: she deliberately rescues Adam first which allows him to transform into He-Man and rescue everyone else. When Adam later asks her why on earth she rescued him first, all she says is that she "had a feeling he'd know what to do". She doesn't come right out and admit she knows Adam is He-Man, but she does say "a mother always recognises her own son".
* ShoutOut: Her name could be a reference to pilot/astronaut [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Glenn John Glenn]].

* {{Cyborg}}: His elephant head is cybernetic.
* OddCouple: With Rio Blast in the Star comics. He's the neat and by-the-book one.
* UnwillingRoboticisation: Hordak kidnapped him to make him into a cyborg, rather than trick him like he did with Extendar.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Snout Spout can... fire water out of his trunk. However, he subverts the trope by using his powers (in creative yet not-so-awesome ways) to shoot ice, vapor or just water when the situation requires it.


!!The Sorceress of Castle Grayskull/Teela'Na
[[quoteright:136:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sorceress_6481.jpg]]
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Christina Pickles (Live-Action Movie); Venus Terzo (New Adventures); Nicole Oliver ('02)
* BlessedWithSuck: Think about it. Blessed with the ability to discern almost all the things happening on Eternia, having extremely powerful magic at her command...and yet, she was unable to leave the Castle without being reduced to flying around as a bird with very low-level telepathy. One imagines the limitations got quite frustrating. The very few times she was able to overcome these limitations were explicitly stated to be special circumstances.
* CanonImmigrant: At least her bird-like looks.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep
* HerHeartWillGoOn
* HotMom
* LukeIAmYourFather: The Sorceress is Teela's mother, a fact known only by herself, Man-At-Arms and Adam/He-Man.
* ShesGotLegs
* TeamMom
* TrulySingleParent: Unless you count Skeletor, who used the power of Point Dread to clone the Sorceress to create Teela.
** Except in the 2002 series, where it happened the old-fashioned way.

-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

Leader of the bird people from Avion.

* BirdPeople
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: In the 2002 series, Stratos' voice is plainly based on SeanConnery's — apparently, it was felt that Stratos' beard brought Connery to mind.
* OddFriendship: With Buzz-Off in the 2002 series.
* TokenNonhuman: in the first few minicomics, before more non-human Heroic Warriors were added.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was going to be a villain.

!!Sy-Klone, Son of Dy-Lex
[[quoteright:106:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/syklone_3231.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); John Payne ('02)

Guardian of the Legacy Stones in the city of Anwat Gar, able to create whirlwinds. After the Legacy Stones are destroyed, Sy-Klone joins the Heroic Warriors.

* BlowYouAway

-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Chelsea Field (Live-Action Movie); Cathy Weseluck (New Adventures); Lisa Ann Beley ('02)

Captain of the royal guard and Man-At-Arms' adopted daughter, who has a crush on He-Man.

* ActionGirl
* ArmCannon: A wrist-mounted laser.
* BadassNormal
* GreenEyedMonster: In the 80s series she was annoyed whenever an attractive woman showed interest in Adam, like in "Song of Celice" where she gives the title character the stink-eye when they first meet.
* HappilyAdopted: By Man-At-Arms
* LadyOfWar
* LeotardOfPower
* LoinCloth: In the DC comics.
* LukeIAmYourFather: The 2002 series hints that her biological father is either Man-At-Arms or his brother Fisto.

!!Skeletor/Keldor of the House of Miro
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skeletor_463.jpg]]
-->Played by: Alan Oppenheimer (80's); Frank Langella (Live-Action Movie); Campbell Lane (New Adventures); Brian Dobson ('02)
-->"Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man...Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?"

The older half-brother of King Randor, who tried to conquer Eternia and ended with his face horrifingly scarred and rechristened himself Skeletor, lord of destruction.

* AdaptionalBadass / AdaptionalVillainy: In the 2002 series. In the Filmation cartoon, he was such a SympatheticIneffectiveVillain, to the point of being a JerkassWoobie, that a number of episodes were written where he would team up with He-Man just to give some victories. In the 2002 series, he's a legitimately dangerous, and a total {{Jerkass}} to everyone around him to boot.
* ArchEnemy
* BadBoss
* BifurcatedWeapon: In the 2002 series.
* BigBad
* {{Bishonen}}: As Keldor
* CardCarryingVillain: From the ChristmasSpecial: "I don't want to feel good! I want to feel evil!"
* DeadpanSnarker: He cracks more one-liners than anyone else on the show.
* EmergencyTransformation: from Keldor to Skeletor in the 2002 cartoon, and from charred Skeletor to cyborg Skeletor in the New Adventures minicomics.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Not always consistent, as he has outright asked He-Man if he ever considered doing anything evil. Skeletor has, however, been GenreSavvy enough to predict how the heroes will react to events. In "The Problem with Power," Skeletor correctly predicts how He-Man would react to thinking he killed someone.
* EvilLaugh: Especially prevalent in the Filmation cartoon.
** LaughingMad
* EvilSorcerer
* EvilUncle: [[spoiler: to Prince Adam]]
* GenreSavvy
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Upon seeing that his handsome face has been reduced to nothing but a skull floating above his shoulders, Keldor/Skeletor cackles madly.
* HalfHumanHybrid: His father is the Eternian equivalent to human, while his mother is a Gar (Sy-Klone-s race).
* ISurrenderSuckers
* ItsAllAboutMe: In the 2002 series, he makes it clear he wants power for himself, and when he's the closest to winning and thinks he get his hands on the Elders' power, he says he has no intent of sharing the spoils.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil: While the original minicomics played him as a serious villain, the Filmation cartoon (thanks to censors constantly breathing down Filmation's neck) turned him into a comedic figure, making him a LaughingMad DeadpanSnarker. The 2002 cartoon made him a little more menacing and more of a legitimate threat, but otherwise stayed fairly true to the sniggering, wisecracking persona of the Filmation cartoon.
* ManipulativeBastard: Mostly in the New Adventures, where he frequently plays with Flogg's ego to get what he wants, but he also have his moments in the other series (like the 80's episode "The Problem with Power").
** Had a good number of moments of this in the 2002 series.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: During the first season of the New Adventures of He-Man, Skeletor finds a crystal that changes him from his basic "New Adventures" looks to an armor based on the Disks of Doom Skeletor figure.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* ObviouslyEvil: His unsubtle visage is the article's picture.
* PetTheDog: Skeletor really cares for his pets (Panthor in Eternia, Grr in Nordor), which is ironically more notorious [[KickTheDog when he betrays everyone else]] (in "Escape from Gaolotia" and "Council of Evil"). He can leave his allies to rot/die, but he will keep his pet at his side.
* PurpleIsPowerful
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SkullForAHead
* SmugSnake
* [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over Eternia]]
* ThatManIsDead: Keldor died when he got a face full of acid. Skeletor was born shortly afterwards. Figuratively speaking, of course.
* TrueMeaningOfChristmas: He discovers this in the ChristmasSpecial and makes a brief HeelFaceTurn, though only begrudgingly whilst wondering what was coming over him.
* VocalDissonance: In the original series. He's a musclebound warlord with a skull for a face, but his voice is brittle and high-pitched.

!!Beast Man/Raqquill Rqazz
[[quoteright:59:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beast-man_9043.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Tony Carroll (Live-Action Movie); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

* EyepatchOfPower
* MasterSwordsman

!!Blast-Attak
[[quoteright:55:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blastattak_1864.jpg]]

A robot who is a walking time-bomb. Sometimes he's portrayed as part of the Snake Men.

* EasilyDetachableRobotParts: There are some stories where he doesn't explode, but instead divides to fight two enemies at once.
* VerbalTic: Quite literally, because he says "Tic" between sentences.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Blast-Attak is a robot who can explode; why go through the trouble of building a sophisticated robot if it's just to have it blow itself up?

!!Clawful/(real name pronounced through a series of claw clicks)
[[quoteright:84:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clawful_2866.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); [=Scott McNeil=] ('02)

A member of the Karikoni, an Eternian race of crustacean warriors from Orkas Island.

* AWizardDidIt: His MOTU Classics bio reveals his change from the DumbMuscle of the 2002 series to the keen warrior of the 80's series as the result of a spell cast by Evil-Lyn.
* Demoted To Extra: Same problem as Whiplash see below. If you like his Filmation incarnation, guess what; you're not going to like what the 2002 series did to him.
* DumbMuscle: 2002 series only.
* {{Expy}}: The 2002 series' "The Island" introduced Clawful's cousin, who was intelligent and had ambition. He's basically Clawful of the '80s series.
* GiantEnemyCrab
* RightHandOfDoom: His right claw is much larger than his left -- ''much'' much larger in the 2002 series. This is based on real fiddler crabs.
* SimpletonVoice: 2002 series; ridiculously exaggerated, at that.
* TheStarscream: '80s series only.
* TooDumbToLive: The 2002 series. Seriously, he doesn't even recognize the language of his own species.

!!Draego-Man

A recent addition to the Evil Warriors created for the MOTU Classics toyline.

* PlayingWithFire

!!Evil-Lyn/Evelyn Morgan Powers
[[quoteright:78:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evillyn_3283.jpg]]
-->Played by: Linda Gary (80's); Meg Foster (Live-Action Movie); Kathleen Barr ('02)

An evil sorceress who works for Skeletor, but expects to overthrow him some day.

* DaddysGirl: But a subversion of DaddysLittleVillain, as her father is good.
* DarkActionGirl
* EvenEvilHasStandards[=/=]EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She is willing to help Skeletor in his attempt for world domination, but she will not betray her father and returns his magical Ramstone back to him when Skeletor loses it.
* EvilAlbino: Possibly. Pale skin, purple eyes, and white hair from at least late adolescence/young adulthood, according to one flashback.
* EvilSorcerer
* HotWitch
* LadyOfWar
* LeotardOfPower
* PurpleIsPowerful
* PunnyName
* ShesGotLegs
* TheStarscream: The 2002 series she even lampshades that Skeletor taught that deception and treachery "were the cornerstones of power" and she learned his lessons. They are both amused.
* WelcomeBackTraitor: In the 2002 series, Skeletor, after He-Man saves her from the Pool of Shadows (where Skeletor aimed to sacrifice her into the Forsaken Realm to as a deal with the dimension's [[EldritchAbomination native population]] as punishment for her releasing King Hiss), Skeletor lets her back into his ranks with no problems, with the two of them even sharing some laughs about what happened.

!!Faker
[[quoteright:141:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/faker_1911.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's)

A robot duplicate of He-Man, created to trick the Eternians.

* DependingOnTheWriter:
** His appearance: he's either [[GlamourFailure always blue and thus a failed attempt as a He-Man duplicate]], or he's blue but can change color to disguise as He-Man, or even is always identical to He-Man (despite the toy's blue appearance).
** His strength: he might have strength equal to He-Man's, or just average strength with his similarity to He-Man limited to appearance.
* EvilKnockoff
* FaceHeelTurn: It was implied by the '02 series writers and confirmed by his Classics bio that he is the same robot Man-At-Arms used as a decoy He-Man. It's still an arguable example since he wasn't sentient when he worked for Man-At-Arms.
* MythologyGag: In his appearance in "The Courage of Adam," he looks exactly like He-Man. When he's knocked out, however, he briefly turns blue before de-activating.

!!Gygor

A former warlord of the Vine Jungle, who was in suspended animation until Evil-Lyn freed him to bolster Skeletor's forces.

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys

!!Ninjor
[[quoteright:47:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ninjor_2125.jpg]]

An stealthy ninja who works for Skeletor.

!!Panthor
[[quoteright:279:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Panthor_8862.jpg]]

* CallARabbitASmeerp: Call A Panther A "Dylinx"

!!Saurod
[[quoteright:91:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saurod_8733.jpg]]
-->Played by: Pons Maar (Live-Action movie)

A reptilian warrior who is killed by Skeletor for his failure in getting the Cosmic Key.

* BreathWeapon: He throws sparks from his mouth, an ability not shown in the movie but added for the figure.
* CanonImmigrant
* KilledOffForReal
* TheUnintelligible: Only in the movie, where he expressed himself through hisses. When he appeared in comics, he talked normal.

!!Scareglow/Karak Nul
[[quoteright:108:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scareglow_7338.jpg]]
-->"In my glow, even brave men tremble!"

A skeletal warrior whose body can glow and cause everybody who stares at it to see his/her greatest fears.

* MultipleChoicePast: He came too late to the toyline to get enough spotlight, yet he got so popular (specially due to looking similar to Skeletor)that every writer tried to give his own interpretation: a being summoned from the reaches of space and time, a copy created by Skeletor in his own image or the king of another dimension. The current version is that he's the ghost of a bounty hunter, summoned by Skeletor like in the first version.
* PowerGlows
* SkullForAHead

!!Screeech

Skeletor's savage bird.

* EvilCounterpart: To the "Sorceress' pet" version of Zoar

!!Spikor/Kleffton
[[quoteright:88:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spikor_8790.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's)

A warrior covered in spikes that give him the advantage in close combat. He has an extendable left arm with a trident as a hand.

* TheBlacksmith: Shown as such in a single minicomic, though then he created the Terror Claws, which would become Skeletor's new weapons for the rest of the toyline run.
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has them around his whole body.

!!Stinkor/Odiphus
[[quoteright:132:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stinkor_547.jpg]]
-->Played by: Brian Drummond ('02)

A petty Paleezean thief who got the power to emit an awful odor.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the 2002 reboot. The original was basically the ButtMonkey of the bad guys, hated so bad the ''only'' reason he was kept around was his smell weakened He-Man and only appeared in a mini comic. In the 2002 reboot, he's actually the one minion Skeletor ''liked'' because he was actually powerful and successful. In fact, he's one of the ''only'' villains to ever actually ''succeed'' at a mission (driving ''every'' dragon out of the country so Skeletor's newest weapon wouldn't have its natural predator present to defeat it).
* AscendedFanboy: Odiphus is shown to desperately want to be fighting for the bad guys, which he ultimately does as Stinkor.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Odiphus appears as a prisoner in "Snake Pit" before his appearance in "The Sweet Smell of Victory".
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Stinkor is a skunk-man who had the power of smelling so horribly he had to use a respirator to keep himself from being knocked out. You would think this is a useless or stupid ability, but the 2002 reboot shows just how deadly this can be.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Stinkor's stench is just as horrible to himself as it is others, which is why he always wears a breathing apparatus and mask.
* MeaningfulRename: He insists on not being called Odiphus anymore. He's Stinkor.
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TookALevelInBadass: Odiphus was a villain wannabe and - like the rest of his species - quite small in stature. The chemical accident in Tri-Klops' lab gave him his power, as well as made him taller and physically stronger.

!!Trap Jaw/Kronis
[[quoteright:113:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trapjaw_3837.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

An Evil Warrior who tried to turn by Skeletor, who left him severely injured. Tri-Klops remade him as a Cyborg with a mechanical jaw and a robotic right arm with interchangeable weapons.

* ArmCannon: one of his optional mechanical arms.
* Ax Crazy: Established as such in the original mini-comics.
* Badass: The 2002 origin comics establish him as this.
** Handicapped Badass: The fact that he's STILL a viable threat despite being an amputee establishes him as this.
* {{Cyborg}}
* HookHand: another optional hand
* Jerkass: Compared to Skeletor's other minions, he's easily on of the biggest assholes in this franchise. To date, he's betrayed no less than three allies: Mer-man after a team-up in an episode of the 80s Filmation cartoon, Stratos after the Enemy Mine episode in the 2002 series, and in his comics backstory from 2002, his bounty hunting partner.
* MeaningfulRename
* SwissArmyAppendage: Trap Jaw has several attachments he uses; approximately a dozen in the original cartoon, though naturally the toy is limited to three.
* WeCanRebuildHim

!!Tri-Klops/Trydor Esooniux Scope
[[quoteright:53:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triklops_1357.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Paul Dobson ('02)

A warrior with three eyes that give him different vision powers.

* CyberCyclops
* DumbMuscle: In the original series.
* EvilGenius: In the 2002 series.
* EyeBeams
* GadgeteerGenius
* MasterSwordsman: Mainly in the original minicomics. Kind of in the 2002 series.
* NobleDemon: Most obvious in the 80s minicomics, though the 2002 version counts as either this or some version of woobie (it could also be considered anti-villainous... maybe). So far, the only known incarnation of Tri-klops that DOESN'T qualify for this is the Filmation cartoon one, and that's only because that version had no personality to speak of.
* What Could Have Been: Like Whiplash, he was intended to be a Heroic Warrior. Unlike Whiplash however, his personality is still remarkably noble, possibly due to Beauty Equals Goodness (or Noble Demon at least, in this case.)

!!Twistoid
[[quoteright:192:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twistoid_9606.jpg]]
-->"Surrender!"

A spinning robot created by Skeletor stealing the machine used to create Rotar.

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* EvilCounterpart: to Rotar
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: He was supposed to be the first of many, to oppose the Horde Troopers, but the machine used to make him was recovered by the Heroic Warriors.

!!Two-Bad/Tuvar and Baddrah
[[quoteright:147:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twobad_6053.jpg]]
-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (both, 80's); Brian Drummond (Tuvar, '02); Mark Gibbon (Baddrah, '02)

A pair of bounty hunters who were merged by Skeletor due to their failure.

* BrainsAndBrawn
* DimishingVillainThreat: In the 2002 series. Individually, they both beat up the rest of the evil warriors, and proved a challenge for He-Man. When Skeletor merged them, they're harmless.
* DumbMuscle: Baddrah
* MultipleHeadCase
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original idea to Two-Bad was making one of the heads be a good guy and the other a bad guy. This was skipped and both were bad.
** In the 2002 series, they were going to be part of the Evil Warriors from the beginning, until their origin story was considered for a later episode.

!!Webstor/Araneus, Son of Raknus
[[quoteright:102:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/webstor_8247.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Brian Dobson ('02)

One of the few remaining Arachna, a race of spider people.

* EarlyBirdCameo: He is seen in the catacombs of Snake Mountain in "Snake Pit" before his appearance in "Council of Evil, Part 1."
* EscapeArtist
* EvilCounterpart: To Buzz-Of
* EvilGenius: Mostly in the less well-known British or German comics. His speciality are {{Death Trap}}s, since as an EscapeArtist he knows what would a captured enemy try.
* GiantSpider: More notorious in the 2002 series, but he was also supposed to be one in the 80s version of the franchise.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:WordOfGod says that when he collapses in "Web of Evil" from injuries inflicted by the Snake Men, he did die. However, the same WordOfGod says the death scene was intentionally ambiguous in the case of another writer wanting to use him.]]
* NobleDemon: Actually shows shades of this in some VERY obscure media. The first time this aspect of him is shown in the UK comic, it's an extreme case of HonorBefore Reason, as he intentionally leaves a way out of the trap he has put He-Man into, and after He-Man finds it, Webstor (right there) lets him go, telling he will face Skeletor's wrath for this. Unfortunately, this has been damn near forgotten everywhere else.
* RedemptionRejection: Refuses He-man's offer to join the Masters in the British comics, rather infuriatingly. He was probably too Genre Savvy not to know that spider people always, always belong with the villains.

!!Whiplash/Torrant Krazut
[[quoteright:107:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whiplash_MOTU_3437.jpg]]
-->Played by: John Erwin (80's); Creator/GaryChalk ('02)

Member of the reptilian species known as Caligars, who betrayed his people to join the Evil Warriors.
* DemotedToExtra: Going from the Filmation series to the 2002 series is... PAINFUL, to say the least, for a Whiplash fan. It's nothing but a sin to see how badly he was dumbed down, after his strong and intelligent Filmation showing.
* DumbMuscle
* What Could Have Been: Like Tri-klops, he was intended to be a Heroic Warrior.
* WhipItGood: He uses his tail as a whip.

* ArchEnemy: The 2002 series hinted that he was this to King Greyskull. King Hiss also refers to him as this.
* BadBoss: In the 2002 series, he kills one of his generals for giving him bad news.
* BigBad
* BiggerBad: In the 2002 He-Man series, he's a SealedEvilInACan, but the ManBehindTheMan with Skeletor since he's the reason he survived the injuries he got from Randor, and created the Dark Hemisphere. WordOfGod is that if the show continued he would have taken over as the BigBad.
* DragonInChief: To Horde Prime, as the Horde Prime never bothers to actually do anything.
* TheDreaded: In the 2002 series, everyone is afraid of him, EVERYONE, even King Hiss.
* EvilerThanThou: In the 2002 series, the backstory with King Greyskull reveals that he was this to King Hiss, hence part of why he so afraid of him.
* EvilVersuOblivion: In the 2002 series with the backstory mentioning the [[ExactWords Spell of Seperation]]. He intended to use it to separate Eternia into the light and dark hemispheres, except the spell ended up [[GoneHorriblyRight working better than he planned]] and nearly [[ApocalypseHow separated the very planet in two]], prompting him to halt it and hide away the pieces of the ArtifactOfDoom he used to cast the spell in the first place.
* EvilSorcerer
* EvilOverlord
* HeroKiller: In the 2002 series, he mortally wounds King Grayskull before being imprisoned in Despondos.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He called forth a portal to Despondos to trap King Grayskull, but the king turned the tables and sent him through instead.
* LargeHam
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver

A motorized cyborg with a built-in wheel on his chest, that allows him to move at super-speed.

* BrainWashed: Unclear if it's the case in the minicomics, but it clearly is in the UK comics.
* EvilCounterpart: To Extendar. Their powers are different, but they share the same origin.
* {{Cyborg}}

Leader of the Snake Men, who can disguise himself as a human or shed his human skin to reveal his true form.

* ArchEnemy: To Zokak in the 2002 series. King Hiss seemed to feel his actual ArchEnemy was Hordak.

* BenevolentBoss: In a stark contrast to either Skeletor or Hordak. The Snake Men have UndyingLoyalty to him for this reason.
* BigBad: In a BigBadDuumvirate with Skeletor in the 80s minicomics, and supplants Skeletor as this in the 2002 series.
* EvilVersusOblivion: When Evil-Lin tries to release Hordak in the 2002 series, he tries to stop her, and fails because He-Man interferes not realizing what he was trying to do till after he prevent Hordak's escape, as even he doesn't want Hordak to return.

* IAmAHumanitarian: A species trait, though in the 2002 series, he's the only shown actually doing it.

* PetTheDog: He's the only one in the group to treat Kobra Khan as "a proper Snake Man."
* SmugSnake: Quite literally
* [[TheWormThatWalks The Snake That Walks]]: His true form is multiple snakes tangled together.

-->Played by: Lou Scheimer (80's); Creator/ScottMcNeil ('02)

* AllTheOtherReindeer: The other Snake Men, with the exception of King Hiss, think of him as just an inferior descendant of the ''true'' Snake Men.
* AlliterativeName
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Khan predates Mattel's creation of the Snake Men, so he was originally just a snake-themed Evil Warrior working for Skeletor during the 80s. Upon the Snake Men's introduction to the toyline, Khan was [[RetCon retconned]] into being tied to them.
* HollywoodAcid: He can spit this or spray poison/sleeping gas.
* TheMole: [[EvilVersusEvil Toward Skeletor]].
* RubberMan: One episode of the 80s series showed him having stretchable arms similar to Sssqueeze.

A gorgon-like Snake Man who can petrify his opponents by showing them the snakes that come out of his face.

* DeathByAdaptation: In the 2002 series, he's [[HoistByHisOwnPetard turned into a stone statue]] and imprisoned. In the [=MVCreations=] comic adaptation of the same episode, the statue is kicked down the abyss by Zodak. Luckily for Snake Face, later comics follow the TV version and he's shown as an imprisoned statue.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
* KilledForReal
* StoryBreakerPower / TooPowerfulToLive: Not so much if he was an one-shot villain, but that power is too much for a regular like him. The writers admitted that that they had to kill him off soon or his ability would could cause him to eclipse King Hiss as a threat.

-->'''Skeletor (to himself):''' No, Flogg, when I return, you will be mine. Primus will be mine. The whole Tri-Solar Galaxy will be mine! And He-Man will not be.

Leader of the Evil Mutants from planet Denebria.

* BigBadWannabe: To be fair, he and his mutant army were a threat big enough to have the Galactic Guardians asking for He-Man's help, but after Skeletor arrived, Flogg became his pawn without realising it.
* {{Foil}}: He and Skeletor are this to each other; Skeletor is smart, Flogg is sane.
* GeneralFailure: Flogg isn't a particularly intelligent mutant and his strategies often leave something to desire, but he manages to subvert this occasionally — he's not ''smart'', but he's a savvy and intimidating military commander who can draw up a battle plan that'll leave 'em reeling sometimes.
* PragmaticVillainy: He won't risk his ship or his troops unless there's a clear goal. Besides, he could incur the wrath of the Galactic Council by directly attacking the Primans, so he doesn't do it when it's for petty reasons.
* UnevilLaugh
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: A power he only had in the German/UK comics.
* WhipItGood

!!Butthead
[[quoteright:98:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/BH_7675.jpg]]
-->Played by: Creator/ScottMcNeil (New Adventures)

A mutant who uses his hard head to attack (kind of an evil Ram Man).

* DumbMuscle
* FailOSuckyname: The cartoon mercifully refers to him solely as "BH", but that's still probably the single worst name they could have possibly come up with.
* HighClassGlass: After being hit by a "brain ray", he starts wearing a monocle. Later he completes the ensemble with a bowler hat and a fancy suit — though he doesn't take off his helmet at any point.
* NamesTheSame: with the character from BeavisAndButthead.

Spy and reconaissance agent of the mutants.

* HappilyMarried: He married in the episode "The Bride Of Slushhead"
* ManChild
* PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Slushhead!"

-->Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

A hunter and tracker who attacks with the horns of his helmet.

* ArchEnemy: to Sagitar.
* BeardOfEvil
* DumbMuscle: Not as dumb as BH or Slushhead, but still more brawn than brains.
* HornedHumanoid: Not quite played straight, since his horns are clearly a part of his helmet, yet still invoked by the fact of being his most recognisable trait.
* TheStarscream: tries to depose Flogg in the episode "Mutiny in the Mothership".

* AdaptionalBadass / AdaptionalVillainy: In the 2002 series. In the Filmation cartoon, he was such a SympatheticIneffectiveVillain, to the point of being a JerkassWoobie, that a number of episodes were written where he would team up with He-Man just to give some victories.
