Characters / Masters of the Universe: Evil Mutants

Go To

Played by: Alvin Sanders (New Adventures)
Flogg: When you return, I will be King of Primus!
Skeletor (to himself): No, Flogg, when I return, you will be mine. Primus will be mine. The whole Tri-Solar Galaxy will be mine! And He-Man will not be.

Leader of the Evil Mutants from planet Denebria.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Skeletor often refers to him as "Floggy".
  • Berserk Button: Any time he has to deal with Slush Head’s incompetence. Skeletor usually has to hold Flogg back from physically attacking him.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: To be fair, he and his mutant army were a threat big enough to have the Galactic Guardians asking for He-Man's help, but after Skeletor arrived, Flogg became his pawn without realizing it.
    • The Starscream: Described as such in his MOTUC bio, a reversal of his status as the nominal Big Bad of the cartoon (and Skeletor's status as one of these in same)
  • Fangs Are Evil: Sports a pair of sharp pointy teeth as seen in the cartoon.
  • Foil: He and Skeletor are this to each other; Skeletor is smart, Flogg is sane.
  • General Failure: Flogg isn't a particularly intelligent mutant and his strategies often leave something to desire, but he manages to subvert this occasionally; he's not smart, but he's a savvy and intimidating military commander who can draw up a battle plan that'll leave 'em reeling sometimes.
  • Advertisement:
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He won't risk his ship or his troops unless there's a clear goal. Besides, he could incur the wrath of the Galactic Council by directly attacking the Primans, so he doesn't do it when it's for petty reasons.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: His toys depict him with distinctly reptilian features, though this didn't carry over to the cartoon.
  • Third-Person Person: Flogg occasionally slips into this ("Go now, you have displeased Flogg!").
  • Villainous Friendship: With Skeletor.


Played by: Scott McNeil (New Adventures)

A mutant who uses his hard head to attack (kind of an evil Ram Man).

  • Dumb Muscle: BH is strong, but not very bright, to the point he considers his also strong but average-intelligence friend Quakke a genius.
  • Evil Counterpart: Butthead is quite similar to the Heroic Warrior Ram-Man from Eternia.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Quakke.
  • High-Class Glass: After being hit by a "brain ray", he starts wearing a monocle. Later he completes the ensemble with a bowler hat and a fancy suit, though he doesn't take off his helmet at any point.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Quakke and B.H are almost always paired up.
  • Unfortunate Names: The cartoon mercifully refers to him solely as "BH", but that's still probably the single worst name they could have possibly come up with.
  • Use Your Head: BH attacks using his armored head.


Played by: Venus Terzo (New Adventures)

A female mutant who admires Skeletor.

Played by: Doug Parker (New Adventures)

A Mutant who can deliver powerful kicks. Later becomes capable of extending his arms and legs.

  • Ace Pilot: Hoove sometimes leads the Mutants' aerial assaults and is often praised by Flogg.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: After getting new armor from Yolt, Hoove gets extendable arms and legs, which keeps for the rest of the series.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Hoove and Karatti often worked together in the early episodes of the series.

Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

A mutant martial artist.

  • Adaptational Wimp: The series had him as capable to fight He-Man and calling cowardice on a tactical retreat. His recent Classics bio calls him a coward who only faces weaker opponents.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: His martial arts allow him to fight and almost defeat He-Man.
  • Demoted to Extra: Karatti is reduced to non-speaking background appearances as the series goes on, despite being prominent in early episodes.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Hoove and Karatti often worked together in the early episodes of the series.


A reptilian mutant.

  • Demoted to Extra: He already was an extra in the minicomics, only telling when there were ships approaching, while the TV series used him as a non-speaking background character.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Used once in the cartoon.
  • Verbal Tic: His only minicomic appearance had him adding "th" after each "s".

Optikk/(real name pronounced through a series of blinks)
Played by: Don Brown (New Adventures)

Spy and reconaissance agent of the mutants.

  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, don't insult Optikk's vision.
  • Character Check: Optikk frequently argued with Slushhead in the minicomics, but became an almost silent and all-business character in the cartoon. After his upgrade, he began to be shown arguing with Slushhead like in the minicomics.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was just as important as Slushhead in the minicomics, but the TV series kept him mostly in the background. He gets some importance back after his Mid-Season Upgrade. Oddly enough, in spite of all this he was the first New Adventures character to get a toy in the Classics line, well before any of the more visible mutants like Flogg or Slushhead
  • Giant Eye of Doom: Optikk is essentially a giant eye sitting on a suit of armor.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: He gets a head-mounted gun from the blacksmith Yolt, and keeps it for the remainder of the series.
  • The Stoic: The Jetlag version of Optikk is a man of few words, and spends most of the series serving as the Navigator on the Mutant Mothership, a task he takes very seriously.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Slushhead in the minicomics.

Played by: Don Brown (New Adventures)

A mutant with a mace that allows him to create earthquakes.

Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

Flogg's bumbling second-in-command.

  • Does Not Understand Sarcasm: Being as dumb as childish as he is, he takes at face value Skeletor's and Flogg's sarcastic remarks. Case
  • Combat Tentacles: Slushhead has two clawed metallic tentacles on his back, which he used in the minicomics to catch his opponents.
  • Dumb Is Good: Not exactly good, but being the dumbest of the Mutants, he's also the most loyal and the closest to have a sense of honor.
    • Subverted in his MOTUC bio, which depicts him as an unlikeable dimwitted thug.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During Slushhead's wedding, he tries to respect the truce he promised to the Galactic Guardians, despite Skeletor and Flogg's schemes. Besides, he's very loyal to Flogg.
  • Happily Married: He married in the episode "The Bride Of Slushhead" with a mutant named Felca.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Despite being a villain, Slushhead is amiable and simple-minded. So much so, Skeletor try to use him as an ambassador of sort to trick the galactic council due solely to the fact (As mention above) it's hard to take this guy seriously as a villain.
    Slush-Head (To the galactic Council): My friends, I come to you with a single message. Um... uh...
    Skeletor (Whisper harshly): Peace you Dummy.
    Slush-Head: Peace you dummies (This causes Skeletor to face-fault)
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Slushhead is too kind for an Evil Mutant.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Shut up, Slushhead!"
  • Plucky Comic Relief: shares quite a few moment, one example is him acting like a hot dog seller.
    • One of the few villain characters doing the PSA and suffer when he ignores Flogg suggestion on checking the water level.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Optikk in the minicomics.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Not above shooting at Caz inside his ship (While singing) as seen in episode 2.

Played by: Ted Cole (New Adventures)

A hunter and tracker who attacks with the horns of his helmet.

  • Dumb Muscle: Not as dumb as BH or Slushhead, but still more brawn than brains.
  • Horned Humanoid: Not quite played straight, since his horns are clearly a part of his helmet, yet still invoked by the fact of being his most recognisable trait.
  • The Starscream: tries to depose Flogg in the episode "Mutiny in the Mothership".
