Trivia: She-Ra: Princess of Power
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:She-Ra/Princess Adora and Catra were voiced by Melendy Britt. Who is also known to fans for playing Batgirl/Barbara Gordon and Catwoman, and Princess Aura.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Crossed with Merchandise-Driven, as originally, as with the comics, Catra was meant to be the Big Bad in the cartoon. Hordak and the Evil Horde were toys made for the boys-oriented Masters of the Universe toyline. But because Filmation was wrapping up their production of He-Man cartoons at the time they started She-Ra, the Horde was too late for that cartoon (only being hinted at in the episode "The Origin of the Sorceress"), but right on time for She-Ra. So instead of the cartoon taking the route of the mini-comics, which were often stereotypical romance-driven action plots with Catra and She-Ra vying over Bow, viewers were treated to a more traditional action show where the lead character was an action hero who just happened to be female, rebelling against a villain who had already conquered the world. This was also why Snake Men were included as part of the Horde. The Snake Men toys came too late for He-Man, so Rattlor and Tung Lashor were added to She-Ra in order to promote toys.
