He-Man: "It's a good thing Orko got my sword back today, or Prince Adam might never have been seen again. The Rockman who took my sword thought it made him a leader, but he was wrong. A sword or any other symbol doesn't make a person a good leader. What does, is intelligence, respect for others and an unselfish desire to do good. People are proud of a leader with those qualities. So if you develop them in yourself, you could become a good leader too. See you soon."

Behind the Scenes

  • Script was approved May 31, 1983 and final script revision took place June 3, 1983.



  • Man-at-Arms references the center of the earth twice when they are on Eternia not Earth.
  • Orko is much too large in comparison to Ram Man when he offers him help but Rammy compares him to a mosquito.
  • When Orko says "I wouldn't want to see that big pillar fall, it holds up the whole thing", it cuts from him and Man-At-Arms to a different shot of He-Man, but the background remains the same.
  • When Man-At-Arms tells He-Man "They're cheering Rabar and Togar, and us", the definition of He-Man's upper chest disappears for a couple of frames.
