* AGodAmI: Skeletor has one of these speeches at the climax, right down to the line "I am a god!"
** He does show some signs of being a PhysicalGod, albeit hardly an omnipotent one.

* ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne: Kevin and Julie, two normal earth teens don't like the idea of being chased around and nearly killed just because they happend to find the {{MacGuffin}} that everybody wants. Heck Kevin even tried to [[RefusalOfTheCall refuse the call]]!

* ChekhovsSkill: Kevin is a musician and initially mistakes the Cosmic Key as a fancy synthesizer, as it uses musical tones as part of its operation. A music shop employee even teases him as "Mr. Perfect Pitch." In the climax of the Earth-based story their Cosmic Key is badly damaged, Gwildor was able to repair it's basic function but the memory and targeting system was fried, making it functionally impossible to return to Eternia. Kevin did hear the tones used by Skeletor's army and rigged up the Cosmic Key to his keyboard, recreating the same musical composition bring them right back to Grayskull.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawVegetarian: PlayedForLaughs. Duncan, Teela and Gwildor steel a bucket of chicken for food, Teela says she likes it but wonders why it is placed on these "white sticks." Duncan tells her it is a rib bone and both Teela and Gwildor pause with [[IAteWhat disgust that it came from an animal]], in the sense that they never heard of the concept of being a carnivore. Duncan, being an OldSoldier, doesn't seem to mind.

* AntagonistTitle: If the filmmakers decided to stay true to the [[MythologyGag cartoon's original opening narration]].



* MythologyGag: Skeletor’s plans to drain the Sorceress’ life force and use it to become powerful mirror the episode “The Dragon Invasion”.

* MythologyGag: MythologyGag:
** Just before receiving the powers of Grayskull, Skeletor names himself "Master of the Universe". In the original cartoons, Skeletor and his forces were the [[TitleCharacter eponymous "Masters of the Universe"]] before the opening narration was changed.

* AdaptationalBadass: This Skeletor is considerably more competent, and much [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] and serious than the original.

to:

* AdaptationalBadass: The cartoon version of Skeletor was a LaughablyEvil goofball and rarely got things done. This Skeletor is considerably more competent, had already taken over Eternia by the intro and much [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] is shown to be a capable and serious than the original.terrifying villain that doesn't mess around.


Added DiffLines:

* HypercompetentSidekick: Skeletor isn't inept, but his dragoness Evil-Lyn proves to be very competent when she's forced to work with the mercenaries. She looks through Karg's lies, successfully interrogates Kevin and tricks Julie to hand her the key.


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: LargeHam aside, Skeletor is a terrifying villain. He doesn't mess around, the only humour from him are a few sarcastic quips and he fries Saurod when the mercenaries fail him.

The movie features Skeletor acquiring the Cosmic Key, a teleportation device from Gwildor, an eccentric inventor, which gives him an edge in his war against He-Man. Eventually the heroes find an identical device and use it to escape capture, accidentally traveling to a distant planet -- Earth. Skeletor is not far behind. Starring Creator/DolphLundgren as He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor, Meg Foster as Evil-Lyn and a young Creator/CourteneyCox and [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Robert Duncan McNeill]] as teenage sweethearts Julie Winston and Kevin Corrigan, who are caught up in the events.
