* Skeletor in ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' and [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 its reboot]]. He was simply a guy whose head looked like a skull; in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfHeMan'' we even see that he has some hair up top. In the 2002 series, however, Keldor's face was melted off by a vial of acid -- his life was saved by Hordak, but at the cost of his head now being a skull floating above his shoulders.
