Man butted many things in the He-Man series, and
here they all are.
Man was one of the more interesting characters of the original
Masters of the Universe toy line. Everyone who
has long forgotten about the series can still recall the
Ram Man action figure, and his role in the He-Man
cartoon. The cartoon played Ram Man as a slow-witted character,
but some writers actually gave him a great amount of respect.
The reasoning for his slow persona was in relation to his
comical ability, which was knocking down objects with his
head. Here we list all of objects that dared to stand in
Ram Man's way!
- "Diamond Ray of Disappearance" Skeletor's Hover Robots
Teela, Orko, Ram Man and Stratos turn up to aid He-Man and
Battle Cat in their defense of Castle Grayskull. Skeletor's
Hover Robots begin to approach He-Man who is already battling
with Tri-Klops, thus Ram Man provides a "breather."
Ram Man strikes one of the Hover Robots, which in turn strikes
the next one, and so on.
- "The Curse of the Spellstone" Skeletor's Hover Robots (again)
As He-Man and his friends arrive at the Temple of Fire,
Skeletor quickly attacks him with his Hover Robots. Ram
Man performs the same stunt he did in "Diamond Ray
of Disappearance." He strikes one, which hits the next
- "The Dragon Invasion"
As a dragon attacks the palace, the characters in attendance
rush outside to stop it from destroying their home. Ram
Man and Man-At-Arms enter the scene at the same time, with
Ram Man immediately leaping into action. The dragon spots
Ram Man leaping towards its foot, and thus raises it. Ram
Man in turn misses his target and strikes a wall, as He-Man
prepares himself for a battle with the dragon.
Even the one shot toy-based character Jitsu is not safe
from Ram Man's attack. Jitsu showcases his giant chopping
hand, which forces Ram Man to the ground. Ram Man quickly
gets up and strikes Jitsu head on, and the winner of the
small skirmish is decided!
- "Colossor Awakes"
In the palace grounds Skeletor brings a few stone statues
to life. Ram Man, Stratos and Orko must battle the creatures.
Ram Man avoids his opponent for a while, and then leaps
at the statue warrior and smashes it!
As Colossor makes his way towards Castle Grayskull, the
heroes come out in full force. Trying to knock Colossor
off balance, Ram Man leaps at the giant stone creature,
but does not really make a big difference.
- "Quest for He-man"
Tri-Klops and a War-Sled
As He-Man battles Skeletor's warriors on their War-Sleds,
Ram Man secretly prepares to launch himself into the air.
As Tri-Klops brags how nothing can sneak up on him, Ram
Man shoots out of the blue and completely destroys Tri-Klops'
War-Sled. Ram Man also shows how he makes his landing safe,
as a parachute is deployed.
Plundor has He-Man and Gleedal prisoner, so like a godsend,
Orko, Ram Man and Cringer arrive to save their friends.
When Plundor's giant robots attack, Cringer runs in fear,
whilst Ram Man launches himself at them, and destroys them
with ease. The sound of an aircraft descending is the perfect
sound effect in this scene.
- "The Royal Cousin"
Pool in palace gardens
Ram Man is given the pleasant task of looking after Prince
Adam's cousin Jeremy. Jeremy is a spoilt brat who always
gets his own way, and Ram Man agrees to do anything the
boy asks. Ram Man therefore is seen hurtling through the
air and striking the pool in the palace gardens, to which
Jeremy yells, "Bulls-eye!"
- "Wizard of Stone Mountain"
Ram Man jokingly shows Adam what it means to be tough by
ramming one of the buildings in the palace grounds. Unseen
to all in attendance, Locos, who was perched on the building
ledge high above the heroes, falls off and into a small
- "The Taking of Grayskull"
When things go crazy in a nearby village, the heroes travel
to help out as best they can. After He-Man stops a tornado,
boulders begin rolling down the hills towards the town.
Ram Man stands firm and strikes one of the boulders, smashing
- "House of Shokoti" Part 1
Trap Jaw's spider robot
The Wind Raider crashes and the heroes are knocked out of
it! And as Trap Jaw's spider robots attack, Ram Man leaps
to his friends' defense and strikes the fist spider robot.
This in turn strikes the following spider robot, and the
Jaw's spider robot (again)
As the heroes enter Trap Jaw's lair, the villain immediately
prepares himself to fire at them with his Lasertron. Ram
Man once again is the first to react and knocks a nearby
spider robot towards Trap Jaw, which promptly collides with
When a Sand Crawler attacks the archeological dig team,
they flee the scene. Ram Man attempts to slow the creature
down, but completely misses his target and hits a nearby
sand dune. Orko attempts to pull his friend free, but Ram
Man's coiled legs prove quite a challenge.
Awoken in the middle of the night, Masque's allies the Reptile
Men attack the good guys. As soon as He-Man and Battle Cat
arrive on the scene, they free their friends, and Ram Man
starts by knocking one of the Reptile Men far into the distance.
- "House of Shokoti" Part 2
As Melaktha, Adam, Cringer and Stanlan analyze Shokoti's
temple, deliberating what must be inside, Ram Man stands
patiently. A few seconds later Ram Man surprisingly states,
"No sense wasting time," and leaps towards the
stone wall. He manages to strike the wall, causing the outer
shell to crumble away and revealing the real entrance to
Later that same night Stanlan persuades Ram Man to strike
the temple again. Ram Man reluctantly agrees and hits the
temple full force. Unfortunately this causes him to go into
unconsciousness, but not before uttering the classic line,
"Hey good door, solid!" It should be noted that
this is the only time Ram Man actually knocks himself out!
of Shokoti's temple (accidentally)
As He-Man, Ram Man and Battle Cat enter Shokoti's throne
room, they are confronted by demons. Ram Man leaps to save
his friends, but passes through the demons, which are actually
illusions. Ram Man thus climbs higher and higher into the
temple structure, and strikes the ceiling with incredible
force. He falls back to the ground where he is immediately
imprisoned by Shokoti's magic.
As the sleeping beast is awakened Stanlan manages to free
the heroes. One of Ram Man's first acts is to stop the monster
by striking a stone object. Unfortunately it falls into
the creature's mouth, which in turn just begins to eat the
- "Game Plan"
Trying to locate Negator's lair, Ram Man and Battle Cat
come across a ventilation shaft in the middle of the desert.
Battle Cat asks if Ram Man can open it, to which Ram Man
comically replies, "Of course I can!" Battle Cat
watches as his ally rams down through the shaft, and quips,
"Effective. But dumb."
Trapped in Negator's computer game (it was the 80's remember)
He-Man and Ram Man are faced with all sorts of obstacles.
One of them being a giant ball. Ram Man strikes the ball,
causing his feet to dangle out. He-Man grabs Ram Man by
the feet, still with the ball attached to his head, and
uses him as a weapon to destroy another oncoming ball.
- "Quest for the Sword"
Cavern Wall (3 times)
Ram Man has trouble breaking into a cavern in this episode.
Comically rebuking Orko, he tries a second time, and finally
on the third attempt he succeeds in breaking into the cavern.
Only to have Orko appear from within the cavern, telling
Ram Man that he found another entrance off to the side.
It should be noted that the animation used in this scene
is awful, as with most of the actual episode. The shot and
camera angle, which shows Ram Man striking the wall, does
not look right, and the impact is terribly slow.
- "Pawns of the Game Master"
In a flashback to "The Dragon Invasion" we once
again see Ram Man miss the dragon that is attacking the
palace, and strike a wall instead. Notice that in this flashback
sequence the scene takes place during the day, whereas before
it was a nighttime battle.
- The Shadow of Skeletor
Stage Wall (accidentally)
Ram Man walks in on a stage rehearsal featuring Man-E-Faces
and Teela. Mistaken Man-E-Faces for a real monster Ram Man
leaps to Teela's defense, as Adam and Teela plead with him
not to. Ram Man misses Man-E-Faces and ends up destroying
a few parts of the stage, most noticeably one of the walls.
with Whiplash and Evil-Lyn atop
Evil-Lyn and Whiplash believe they have finished He-Man
when a boulder lands on him. He-Man soon lifts up a boulder,
which has apparently ended his life. Unfortunately for Whiplash
and Evil-Lyn, He-Man has a plan, although a little far-fetched.
He tells Ram Man to knock the rock all the way back to Eternia.
This seems like an incredible feat, considering they are
on one of Eternia's moons!
- The Arena
Three Goblin Warriors
Although Ram Man's appearance is only minor, the battle
in which his one scene with the goblins takes place is not.
The animation on this scene works really well as Ram Man
literally glides through the small crowd of warriors, knocking
- Attack from Below
The Belat vehicles are out in full force, stealing crops
from farms and putting the lives of the heroes in danger.
Ram Man's power is greatly shown here as he knocks over
a huge Belat vehicle with great ease. The animation for
this one shot works wonderfully, and you can really sense
the impact of Ram Man's blow.
Vehicle with force field
Ram Man shows juts how important he is in the heroic line
of warriors when He-Man asks for his aid. Presented with
a Belat machine with a very powerful force field, He-Man
and Ram Man must strike at exactly the same time. This scene
showcases their powers at their best, and the idealism of
teamwork. Watch the animation of He-Man, because while Ram
Man predictably rams into it, He-Man leaps up and kicks
it with both of his feet.
When the Gedge monster is released, all the heroes immediately
run for cover. As Teela trips whilst fleeing and Ram Man
leaps to her rescue. He only manages to slow the Gedge down
for a second, but it enables his allies to escape, and Adam
transform himself into He-Man.
- "The Toy Maker"
Toy Maker's Soldier
He-Man plans to trap the Toy Maker's evil toys, which are
now under Skeletor's control. Ram Man is part of the plan,
in that he must strike the soldier toy forcing him to fall
into a noose. However, an animation mistake can be seen
when Ram Man strikes the soldier. Because the soldier's
legs are not in shot, and Ram Man lands in shot, it makes
Ram Man look like a giant.
below are the episodes that Ram Man was featured in, but
did not strike anything.
- "Reign of the Monster"
MU25 - "Evilseed"
MU43 - "The Mystery of Man-E-Faces"
MU101 - Not so Blind
