He-Man's season one and season two something happened
was by no means a big recurring star in the He-Man
series, although he was part of the "Wizard Trilogy"
as we like to mockingly call it; "Wizard of Stone Mountain,"
"The Witch and The Warrior" and "Revenge
is Never Sweet" are all linked by two characters; Kothos
and Malik. Kothos did have two memorable appearances and
on both occasions managed to bring out some of the best
character writing in Evil-Lyn. There was one strange thing
between Kothos' first appearance in "The Witch and
The Warrior" and "Revenge is Never Sweet,"
his look changed considerably. Usually if a character makes
a second appearance in the He-Man or She-Ra
series, they are fairly close to what they looked like before.
Kothos didn't fair so well.
- "The Witch and The Warrior"
Here is the first time we see Kothos. The character has
a lot of blue in his costume, and his skin is of a very
dark tone. By the end of the episode Evil-Lyn transforms
him into a giant blue sand-slug, and that is the last we
see of him.
- Revenge is Never Sweet
When Kothos' reappears as a sand-slug in this season two
episode, his blue skin has now become a dark brown, more
fitting with the sand environment, and that of the many
desert creatures that dwell on Eternia. When Orko makes
the very strange decision to transform his old enemy back
to his human form, we expect the original Kothos. Instead
we see a very differently colored version! Whereas the original
Kothos dressed in many shades of blue, this one looks more
regal in red and white. One of the strangest differences
is that Kothos' skin tone became much lighter.
these changes were made is unknown, but they can't just
be casually ignored.
