''Ator l'invincibile 2'' (released in English-speaking countries as ''The Blade Master'', ''Ator, the Blade Master'', ''Cave Dwellers'', and ''The Return'') is an Italian film that was made in 1984. The movie was written and directed by Joe d'Amato. It stars Miles O'Keeffe as Ator, a man skilled in not only fighting, but in many other arts as well. It also stars Charles Borromel as Akronas, a wise ruler and teacher who is also called the Great One. Lisa Foster stars as Mila, the daughter of Akronas, and David Brandon as Zor - the principal villain of the film. The film was released in theaters as Ator the Invincible and later as Ator, the Blade Master. It received the name Cave Dwellers after it was re-edited by distributor Film Ventures International. It is the sequel to 1982's ''Ator l'invincible'' (with the English title ''Ator the Fighting Eagle''), which received the WebOriginal/{{Rifftrax}} treatmemt in 2017. The third film was 1986's ''Iron Warrior'', followed by ''Quest for the Mighty Sword'' (which was also released as ''Troll 3'', one of ''four'' InNameOnly sequels to ''Film/{{Troll 2}}''.) The movies were made to [[FollowTheLeader capitalize]] on the popularity of the Conan movies which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger.

* WhatTheHellTownspeople: What looks like a TrainingThePeacefulVillagers sequence gets derailed when they drug and capture our heroes. Then the pseudo-Mongols raze the place anyway.

Thong never speaks for the entire film, just doing all the real work without a word. This is never explained.
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Sunya, Ator's bride that he spends the entire first movie rescuing, is simply stated to have died during Akronas' exposition dump. She is ''never'' mentioned in the rest of the film and frankly nothing in the first film is relevant to this one.
*
TokenMinority: Thong.Also Thong, whose sudden association with Ator is never explained. He's missing in the next film, also without explanation.

* YellowFace: Zor is some sort of weird Samurai/Mongol/Hun guy with a cheesy FuManchu moustache, played by a white guy.
