OTHER NAMES:

Torrent Krazut

WEAPONRY

Spear, Sword, Electro shocker blade

SPECIAL ABILITIES: 

Powerful tail, Super Senses, Brute Strength

AFFILIATIONS:

Evil Warriors

Snake Men

1983 FILMATION MOTU ANIMATED SERIES

An inhabitant of the Demon Zone, Whiplash initially served the Demon King, Kraal, and had a legion of creatures serving him. He became one of Skeletor’s most confident and trusted warriors, using his strong tail to throw boulders or cause rockslides. He could track enemies over great distances with his keen sense of smell.

Although loyal to Skeletor, Whiplash actually saved Eternia on one occasion, when he traveled to the Royal Palace and warned the heroes about the appearance of the demon Sh’Gora and its impending assault on the planet.

1983 MOTU MINICOMICS

As in other media, the reptilian brute known as Whiplash was one of Skeletor’s Evil Warriors in the MOTU mini comics. The lizard-like creature was a mighty combatant whose most prominent feature was his thick, muscular tail. Whiplash could manipulate his tail to deliver devastating blows to his enemies. The tail was so powerful that it could wrap itself around a full grown man and easily lift him into the air.

Whiplash’s simplistic way of speaking indicated that the thuggish reptile possessed a low level of intelligence. However, he more than made up for this lack of brains with ferocious strength and a savage disposition.

TRIVIA

Whiplash was depicted wearing yellow pants in the mini comic The Clash of Arms. This look was based on a concept design.

Bonus Info:

Whiplash first appeared in episode 74 Island of Fear but his first named episode is:

To Save Skeletor is the 75th episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, written by Paul Dini and Beth Bornstein and directed by Lou Kachivas.

Buzz-Off was leader and representative of Eternia’s Bee People-humanoid bees that lived in colonies and harvested Eternia’s honey. He often discussed matters of state with King Randor at the Royal Palace and aided the Heroic Warriors. He flew and scouted large areas with his X-ray vision goggles. As a warrior, he possessed greater-than-average strength and used a lance weapon capable of electrical discharges. Buzz-Off was good friends with Mekaneck, and the two made a formidable team when paired together.

1983 MOTU MINICOMICS

Expanding on his Filmation characterization, the mini comics showed Buzz Off to be an accomplished aerial fighter as well as an excellent scout and spy. He possessed a natural form of radar which would alert him to dangers. His claw hands could neutralize opponents with a painful sting. A talented composer of tall tales, Buzz-Off was infamous for relating gruesome stories around the campfire, causing many of his fellow warriors to disbelieve him at times.

Stridor

TITLES: Heroic Armored War Horse

AFFILIATIONS: Heroic Warriors

WEAPONRY: Front-mounted dual laser cannons, rear-mounted swiveling laser cannon

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Early warning system for detecting danger

1983 FILMATION MOTU ANIMATED SERIES

While the Heroic Warriors had many android horses, even one named Strider, Man-At-Arms built a more well-armed mechanical equine named Stridor, with a brown, silver, and orange color scheme. Possessing more strength than other android horses, Stridor also had a computer system that could detect imminent danger. To warn his rider of an attack, Stridor would give an alarm neigh, like a real horse.

During a battle with the evil wizard Morgoth, Stridor demonstrated true heroism when he penetrated the evil wizard’s magic barrier designed to keep out all living things. Since Stridor was not alive, he successfully knocked Morgoth’s magic gem and anchor to Eternia out of the barrier, allowing He Man to destroy it and prevent Morgoth’s return. Grateful, He-Man carried Stridor to Man-At-Arms for repairs despite being weakened himself during the battle. After restoring the android’s functions, Man-At-Arms used a specially designed Electro-Thought Monitor to discover that Stridor, despite being a robot, dreamed of freedom. The Sorceress suggested that the battle with Morgoth had given Stridor a spark of life and that he now possessed a mind of his own. As a result, Man-At-Arms granted Stridor his dream of freedom, although He-Man speculated Stridor would return when he was needed.

1983 MOTU MINICOMICS

In the mini comics, Stridor was presented as Fisto’s heroic armored war horse. The magnificent steed wore an orange helmet and was capable of delivering mighty kicks with his rear legs.

The armored war horse was intelligent and possessed the power of speech. When Fisto was taken prisoner by the Evil Warriors, Stridor saved him by alerting He-Man.

Bonus Info:

Origin of the Sorceress is the 73rd episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, written by J. Michael Straczynski and directed by Marsh Lamore.

FAKER

TITLES: Evil Robot of Skeletor, Evil Robotic He-Man Impersonator

AFFILIATIONS: Evil Warriors, Monster Warriors

WEAPONRY: Orange Sword of Power, Orange ax, Orange shield

SPECIAL ABILITIES: Superhuman strength, Impersonation of He-Man

1983 FILMATION MOTU ANIMATED SERIES

Magically created by Skeletor to fool the Sorceress, Faker was an evil replica of He-Man, only distinguishable by his glowing eyes and a voice with little inflection. After a brief battle with the real He-Man, Faker fell down the bottomless gorge surrounding Grayskull.

1983 MOTU MINICOMICS

The MOTU mini comics, along with the action figures they accompanied, depicted Faker with a radically different appearance from the Filmation animated series. Though he possessed He-Man’s physique, the robotic Faker had blue skin and wore an orange version of Skeletor’s armor. Despite these differences, Skeletor was still able to use Faker to confuse his enemies.

Faker’s sole minicomic appearance established that he was a longtime member of Skeletor’s Evil Warriors. Faker was summoned to help Skeletor prevent King Randor from piercing the veil between dimensions, but was defeated by the combined efforts of King Randor and the Sorceress when King Randor’s spear flew straight into the android’s chest.

TRIVIA: Faker was meant to be prominently featured in Ring of Dreams, a minicomic story that was never released.

Faker only appeared in Episode 2 “The Shaping Staff” of the Filmation series. 

That’s today’s subject of the MOTU Monday, Faker and the truth is, I am Stew and I want you to be stupendous.
