Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: Asklepios loves shooting his mouth off at Arak, even though Arak could snap him like a twig, and Kortan ordering them to break it up is the only thing that stops him.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Unlike the movies and live-action shows, nobody "loses their head" in this series. The quickening consists simply of two people [[StabTheSky holding a sword up to the sky]] while one of them has their knowledge, etc. transferred to the other. TropesAreNotBad, however, as this makes the show more accessible to those would never watch the R-rated Highlander movies[[note]]One of them was rated PG-13, but a later R-rated version was later released.[[/note]].

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin A cartoon based on the]] CultClassic film ''[[Franchise/HighLander The Highlander]]'' taking place in a post apocalyptic wasteland seven hundred years after a giant asteroid devastated Earth (with a little help from fallout caused by nuclear missiles deployed in a failed attempt to stop it). After "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The Great Catastrophe]]", as it came to be called, the world's immortals banded together to restore the world to its former state. Unfortunately they were betrayed by the evil Immortal known as Lord Kortan, who decided he'd rather the world stay a miserable ruin because it'd be easier to conquer and rule that way and because the other immortals, now known as Jettetors[[note]]from the French ''jette'', "to throw", as in those who have thrown down their swords[[/note]], took a mystical oath that prevented them from killing another immortal they were powerless to stop him. [[WhatAnIdiot Didn't really think that one through]].

The series started in 1994 and lasted for two seasons. There were a total of 40 episodes. Notably, this series does not share continuity with ''any'' other version of ''The Highlander''. While most sequels and spinoffs, though usually unrelated to each other, at least nominally follow on from the continuity of the first film, in this series Connor dies before the show even starts without ever attaining "The Prize" while Ramirez, conversely, survives and becomes the mentor to the main character.

* NoEnding: Over the course of 40 episodes Quentin manages to gain the power of numerous Jettators, infiltrates Kortan's fortress numerous times, and survives numerous encounters with Kortan himself, but he never got any closer to that final showdown.

Added DiffLines:

* MortalityEnsues: As in the original movie mortality is presented as a reward for both the Jettators after they give the power to Quentin, and eventually Quentin himself one day.

Kortan kills the protagonist of the first movie, Connor [=McLeod=], and proceeds to hoard the last of Earth's science and technology for himself in his walled fortress city of Mogonda, which he rules with an iron fist. Now, only the newly awakened immortal Quentin [=McLeod=], born after the others took the oath, can stop Kortan and restore Earth to her former glory. To do this he'll need to [[GottaCatchEmAll track down the other immortals]] and gain their knowledge and skills. Fortunately for them, a side effect of the oath allows them to perform The Quickening by holding their sword with Quentin instead of getting their heads cut off, though it does cause them to lose their immortality.

immortality as their power is transferred to Quentin.
