* BigEntrance: He-Man, when he first arrives on earth. Skeletor and his army made a pretty big entrance themselves when they first arrived on the scene. In fact, Skeletor loves this trope, as he makes many entrances in this film often with low camera-angles and up-beat, dramatic music.

* SoMyKidsCanWatch: Frank Langella is actually quite fond of his role as Skeletor, saying his son was a huge fan of the franchise when he was offered the part. He also says that he had always wanted to play a cartoonish over-the-top evil nutcase and was promised Skelitor could be that role. He feels the filmmakers delivered.

** An urban legend, popularized by 4th World fan (and comics pro) JohnByrne, was that the movie was a SpiritualLicensee to JackKirby's Fourth World, with Skeletor taking the role of Darkseid and other characters (including the ones created for the movie) having a surprising correlation to each other. [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2006/11/02/comic-book-urban-legends-revealed-75/ Read here for the full story.]] The director has admitted to being a fan of the comics, but he still tried to make a legitimate MOTU movie.
