Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which company, the same one who manufactures toys like Hot Wheels and Barbie, originally marketed the Masters of the Universe action figures?

Answer: Mattel

After realizing the mistake that was made when Mattel passed on producing a line of action figures for Star Wars characters in 1976, Roger Sweet, a designer in Mattel's Preliminary Design Department, made three 3D models to present to the CEO of the company as prototypes for a new toy series.

They were a barbarian, a soldier, and a spaceman. The concept of the "Masters of the Universe" toy line began when the barbarian 3D figure was chosen. The toy line was introduced in 1981; each toy came with a mini comic book that told stories involving the character.

The original stories were altered in 1983 when the animated series, "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe", was launched. The information given in this quiz is taken from episodes in the animated series.
2. In the "Masters of the Universe" epic, the alter-ego of He-Man was the mild-mannered Prince of Eternia. What was the Prince's name?

Answer: Prince Adam

Prince Adam of Eternia is the son of King Randor and Queen Marlena. Interestingly, in one of the episodes it is revealed that Marlena is from earth. She was an astronaut, Marlena Glenn, who crash-landed her ship on Eternia, and consequently married the king.

Her son, Prince Adam, is portrayed as being lazy and clumsy, and almost despised by some of the members of the royal court. Only a select few know He-Man's true identify, which is surprising considering that Prince Adam and He-Man are identical in appearance except for the dark tan sported by the latter, as well as the deeper voice. Queen Marlena, however, knows without being told. "A mother always knows her own son. I have always been very proud of you."
3. Cringer, the cowardly tiger of the "Masters of the Universe" story, was marketed with accessories as were the other figures. What accessories were packaged with Cringer?

Answer: Battle Armor

One almost has to feel sorry for the scaredy cat, Cringer. He shakes, cowers, and whines at the first sign of danger; he is, however, totally loyal to his master. Although the how and why is never explained, Cringer has the ability to speak. He-Man can turn him into the mighty Battle Cat (which just makes Cringer more afraid) with his enchanted sword.

As Battle Cat, Cringer grows in size, dons a saddle for riding along with red armor that covers his head, and speaks in a deep growl.
4. Duncan, the "Heroic Master of Weapons", or "Man-At-Arms" on Eternia was marketed with body armor, and which of the following weapons?

Answer: Mace

Man-At-Arms is one of the few people who know He-Man's true identity. He is pictured as being a mentor to the Prince of Eternia, working on a variety of weapons and vehicles that are needed to protect the kingdom, and serving as an advisor to King Randor.
5. Teela, the "Warrior Goddess", was the adopted daughter of "Man-at-Arms". Eventually, her true parentage is somewhat revealed. Who was her mother?

Answer: The Sorceress

The Sorceress asked Duncan if he would take care of Teela because after a failed attempt at kidnapping, she didn't think she could protect both her daughter and Castle Grayskull. Teela is curious about her parents, and is able in one of the episodes to find out the identity of her biological mother.

Her father's identity is never revealed, although Duncan and the Sorceress both state that he was one of Eternia's greatest warriors who died in battle. With her special powers, the Sorceress is able to erase the memory of the revelation even though she wishes that she could tell Teela the truth. Teela is Captain of the Guard and is in charge of protecting and training the hapless Prince of Eternia.

She is pictured as being a bit obtuse, however, as she never figures out the connection between the Prince and He-Man. Sometimes her poor judgement and reckless behavior cause her to desperately need He-Man's help.
6. "Battle Armor He-Man", from the "Masters of the Universe" collection, came with an interesting feature: battle scars. How can they be made to appear?

Answer: After striking the chest.

Upon first striking the chest of "Battle Armor He-Man", one scar would appear, and two scars would appear if struck twice. The cylinder had to be rotated back to normal position by hand. In 1984 "Battle Armor He-Man and Battle Cat" were sold as a gift set, although the "Battle Armor He-Man" was also sold separately with a sword and battle axe.
7. In the "Masters of the Universe" tale, Night Stalker was the faithful horse of He-Man.

Answer: False

Actually Night Stalker belonged to the evil Skeletor, while the mechanical horse that served the "Heroic Warriors" was Stridor. Actually the two steeds look very much alike, down to the same pose. While Stridor came with a removable helmet, two moveable laser guns, and a moveable tail laser turret, Night Stalker was equipped with only two rotating laser guns and a moveable tail gun.
8. He-Man of the "Master's of the Universe" series occasionally needed to get somewhere fast! What was the name of the vehicle he used that would fly?

Answer: Wind Raider

The Wind Raider, a powerful jet-propelled craft, was the first vehicle offered in the "Masters of the Universe" collection. With wheels and an anchor/winch that could wind and unwind with the help of the skull on top of the vehicle, the toy could hold one action figure.

In the animated series, it is shown holding several "Heroic Warriors" and shooting beams out of the eye sockets of the yellow skull.
9. In the "Masters of the Universe" saga, who was known as the "Heroic Court Magician"?

Answer: Orko

The character of Orko was not one of the original cast members, but was created on by the writers of the animated series. Orko, a Trollan, ended up at the Tar Swamps on Eternia during a cosmic storm. He saved the young Prince and his pet tiger, Cringer, who were stuck in the tar; as a reward, King Randor appointed Orko the Royal Buffoon. For some reason (differences in natural laws from Eternia to Trolla, incompetence?) that is never fully explained, Orko's magic leaves a bit to be desired. Although he can return to Trolla, and does in a few of the episodes, Orko is totally devoted to He-Man, and along with Duncan and The Sorceress, knows his true identity.
10. One of the "Heroic Warriors" in the "Master's of the Universe" saga, Ram Man has what special ability?

Answer: He can knock down opponents with his super hard helmet.

The source of Ram Man's ability is never fully revealed. Was he human or mechanically enhanced? He was called the "Heroic Human Battering Ram". The toy worked when the spring-loaded legs were pressed into the body and released with a lever on the back of the right foot.
