*TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: It seems not even a discussion via monitor means safety for Hordak, as Horde Prime's mechanical hand comes through the screen to really warn him that he better shape up or else.

However, with the exception of one episode, it's always Loo-Kee who does this.[[note]]The FivePartPilot didn't have this, however.

** One episode has Tung Lashor[[note]]Known here as "Tung Lash", which was clearly a prototype name.[[/note]] working for Skeletor -- despite earlier and later episodes showing him to be part of the Horde. That inconsistency was even more glaring by the fact Tung Lashor bore the Horde crest even in ''that'' episode.

She-Ra was made specifically to appeal to girls, which explains the large number of mentally ''and'' physically strong female characters, like Adora, Glimmer, and Madame Razz, not to mention the vivacious, Zsa Zsa Gabore-like nature of several of them, daaaaaarling -- and quite a number of female villains like [[WickedWitch Shadow Weaver]], [[ScaryScorpions Scorpia]] and [[DarkActionGirl Catra]]. The BigBad, Hordak, is male, which has multiple implications, especially since Shadow Weaver is his closest and smartest advisor. Male characters, like Bow, are usually portrayed as being captured or needing help, just as often as supporting female characters (Glimmer and Bow were the most common victims). Furthermore, whenever He-Man pays a visit to his sister (both in crossovers and the FiveEpisodePilot Movie), he generally requires her help in some way. And in the pilot movie, she first captures him, then saves him.

* EasilyForgiven: Sure, Adora used to be one of Hordak's highest-ranking officers, but as soon as they find out she's the twin sister of this guy who showed up a couple of days ago claiming to be a prince from another dimension, she's quickly given full access to the Rebellion's leadership. Of course, Bow did suggest trying to hold her hostage as leverage against Hordak.

** Glimmer's probably the worst offender. Initially, she was supposed to be the leader of the Great Rebellion, looked up to by everyone, but she quckly turns out to be totally useless in combat, getting her ass kicked by ''one freaking {{Mook}}'' without any sort of effort whatsoever.

*** HeelRealization: The above trope is played with in that Adora herself was never really evil. "Spells of control" or not, she had been raised thinking that the Horde were the rightful rulers of Etheria. He-Man, of course, helped her to discover otherwise (although it did take some time since [[spoiler:Shadow Weaver had cast (another) spell of control when Adora tried to confront Hordak about it.]].



* TheHighQueen: Angella has since been the legitimate queen of Etheria, but the Horde occupation under Hordak all over the planet compromises her position.

He-man occasionally gets off a good pun, but is frankly quiet, for lack of a better word, most of the time. She-ra, on the other hand, ''never'' seems to fucking shut up with the goddamn puns. Ever.
