* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Webstor a WellIntentionedExtremist who wants what's best for his race but still doesn't approve of them torturing prey, and seeks to rule Eternia to find a compromise, or just a power-mad villain who sees the world as a buffet? Is Whiplash a NiceGuy who was forced to team up with Kraal for his own purposes and genuinely regrets all those human sacrifices, or a black-hearted monster consumed by hatred for his damn brother? Is Beastman a {{Woobie}} whose intelligence was destroyed by Skeletor's torture, or an animal abusing {{Jerkass}}? Is Trap-Jaw a typical Snake Mountain dumbass, or the OnlySaneMan who Skeletor horribly disfigured when he attempted a rebellion?

Was Keldor denied his birthright to the throne out of pure racism against the Gar, or was he digging into secret dark magic at an early age to conquer Eternia?

** The film is described on ThatOtherWiki as being the best ''Creator/JackKirby's [[ComicBook/NewGods Fourth World]]'' movie ever attempted. Though WordOfGod from the director indicates he meant to do an homage to the work of Kirby in a general sense, not the Fourth World in particular.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Skeletor was the film's resident scene stealer, but [[TheDragon Evil-Lyn]] has a fair fan following as well. This is mostly because of the EvilIsSexy trope and she's shown to be [[HypercompetentSidekick very competent]] during her investigation on earth. Lubic gets his share of this as well.

* RootingForTheEmpire: The heroes are somewhat bland with some cool and funny moments here and there. The villains consists of the entertainingly over-the-top Skeletor, his attractive and competent dragoness Evil-Lyn, the CarnivalOfKillers and Darth Vader-esque mooks. There's little question on who steals the show.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Creator/FrankLangella's motivation for taking on the role of Skeletor.



** Both Courtney Cox and Robert Duncan [=McNeil=] became much more famous for ''Serie/{{Friends}}'' and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' years later.

* BaseBreaker: Orko in the 80's series. To some he's TheScrappy but to others he's an EnsembleDarkHorse. This is less bad in the 2002 series.

* AwesomeEgo: Skeletor got a massive ItsAllAboutMe mentality, but is very [[HamAndCheese hammy and entertaining]] about it. This is best show in the scene where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOsHoqhbUIU he becomes a god]]. [[ChewingTheScenery He rants for solid two minutes about how awesome he think he is]].

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: While it may not be ''Film/LawrenceOfArabia'' the cast do give it a valiant effort, and there's no denying that Frank Langella is downright '''EVIL''' and scary as Hell as Skeletor.

* NoYay: Quite a few people like to pair He-Man up [[FoeYay with Skeletor]], unaware that he's Prince Adam's uncle.
