Skeletor Quotes:

  • He-Man: I have the power!

    Skeletor: YOU! You will no longer stand between me and my destiny!

    He-Man: But I will! I told you that it's always between us!

    Skeletor: I ache to smash you out of existence! To drive your cursed face from my memories forever!

    He-Man: Enough talk!

    Skeletor: YES! Let this be our final battle!

  • Evil-Lyn: [about the mercenaries] It would be a pity to waste their talents.

    Skeletor: [pushing her away towards them] Save your pity for yourself if you fail. Take them and whatever troops and resources you need.

    Evil-Lyn: I was not suggesting that I go.

    Skeletor: Then you should not have spoken. Leave immediately. When you find the key, send a sourcing signal. An attack force will join you or I will follow.

  • Skeletor: Where are they? Where are your friends now? Tell me about the loneliness of good, He-Man. Is it equal to the loneliness of evil?

  • Skeletor: Do you hear, Sorceress? The final moment has come. All the forces of Greyskull, all the powers in the universe will be vested in me! ME! And you will cease to exist!

    Sorceress: It is not too late to undo this madness.

    Skeletor: [speaking of the Great Eye] Madness! I demand of destitution, shame, and loneliness of scorn. It is my destiny! It is my right! Nothing will deter me from it!

    Sorceress: Men who crave power look back over the mistakes of their lives, pile them all together and call it destiny.

    Skeletor: [laughs] Thank you for that bit of philosophy, Sorceress. Here is my response.

    [Blade brings the Sword of Greyskull forward]

    Skeletor: Yes, Sorceress! The Sword of Greyskull! Mine! Now and forever!

    [He-Man is brought forward]

    Skeletor: Your champion.

  • Evil-Lyn: After all this time, Greyskull is ours.

    Skeletor: NO! Mine.

    Sorceress: The powers of Greyskull have not yet passed to you.

    Skeletor: Someone is speaking to me... yes. Sorceress, my lovely prisoner, my prisoner at last. I've won. I've won. The darkness is rising to embrace you.

    Sorceress: The dark can embrace the light, but never eclipse it. You've not won yet, Skeletor. He-Man is still alive! I can feel him!

    Skeletor: Really? How sensitive you are. Can you feel - this?

    [uses his magic to absorb her strength]

  • [Skeletor has just been fired upon by Teela and Man-At-Arms but uses his magic to shield himself]

    Skeletor: Not the way to treat your beloved ruler! Throw down your weapons or you die!

  • Skeletor: Your wonderous Sorceress will die!

    Duncan: You dare threaten her life?

    Skeletor: I dare anything! I am Skeletor! Throw down your weapons and pledge yourselves to me! Or you will join her!

    He-Man: It's not her you want, it's me. It's always been between us.

    Skeletor: Silence!

  • Robot Trooper: [regarding He-Man's allies] What about them, sir?

    Skeletor: Leave them alone. He-Man is my slave. As long as I let them live, he is bound by his word. Let them rot.


    Skeletor: Let them rot.

  • Skeletor: Stay where you are, He-Man! One more move and your friends will not live to see another day! I give you a choice. Return with me to Eternia as my slave and save their miserable lives, or perish with them on this primitive and tasteless planet. Surrender your sword.

  • [last lines]

    Skeletor: [speaking to the audience] I'll be back!

  • Skeletor: People of Eternia, the war is over. My forces are victorious. The Sorceress of Greyskull is my prisoner, and her powers are now joined with mine! Let this be my first decree... those who do not pledge themselves to me shall be destroyed! The new age begins!

  • Skeletor: People of Eternia! I stand before the Great Eye of the galaxy. Chosen by destiny to receive the powers of Greyskull! This inevitable moment will transpire before your eyes, even as He-Man himself bears witness to it. Now. I, Skeletor, am Master of the Universe! YES! Yes... I feel it, the power... fills me. Yes, I feel the universe within me! I am... I am a part of the cosmos! Its energy flows... flows through me! Of what consequence are you now? This planet, these people, they are nothing to me! The universe is power - pure, unstoppable power! And I am that force, I am that power! KNEEL BEFORE YOUR MASTER!

    [He-Man refuses]

    Skeletor: Fool! You are no longer my equal! I am more than man! More than life! I... am... a... GOD! Now. You... will... KNELL! KNELL!

  • Skeletor: Kneel before your master...

    [He-Man refuses]

    Skeletor: ... fool, you are no longer my equal, I am more than man, more than life... I am a GOD!

  • Skeletor: He-Man lives and possesses that key! I must possess all, or I possess nothing!

  • Skeletor: You are all aware of the penalty for failure.

    Blade: Give me one more chance, Lord Skeletor, and we will succeed.

    Skeletor: I am not in a giving vein this day.

    [incinerates Sauron; Beastman grabs his feet, begging for his life]

    Skeletor: GET AWAY!

    Karg: He begs your forgiveness as do we all. We live only to serve you.

  • Skeletor: Everything comes to he who waits... and I have waited so very long for this moment.

  • Skeletor: [to He-Man] Where is your strength? Where has it gone? Look at your precious Sorceress - now grown weak... withering... dying. Are you ready to kneel now, proud warrior?

    Robot Trooper: The moon rises to its zenith.

    Skeletor: Do you hear? The Alpha... and the Omega... death and rebirth... and as you die, so will I be reborn!

  • Skeletor: Witness this moment, He-Man! This moment where the powers of Greyskull will become mine for eternity! Our life-long battle in ending at last in the only way it could. When the Great Eye opens. The people of Eternia will see you kneel before me, just before you die!

    He-Man: [lunges towards Skeletor] I'll never kneel to you!

    Skeletor: Yes, you will! Yes, you will! Or I shall wreak unforgettable harm upon you!

  • He-Man: You promised not to hurt them!

    Skeletor: I lied! Farewell, He-Man!

  • Skeletor: Everything comes to he who waits. And I have waited so very long for this moment.

    He-Man: Let her go.

    Skeletor: I don't think so. No. While she remains inprisoned within this field, her powers increase my own. And when the moon reaches its zenith, the Great Eye will open and all the powers of Grayskull will be bestowed upon me. Your wondrous Sorceress will die!

    Duncan: You dare threaten her life?

    Skeletor: I dare anything! I am Skeletor. Throw down your weapons and pledge yourselves to me or you will join her.

    He-Man: It's not her you want. It's me. It's always been between us.

    Skeletor: Silence!

    Evil-Lyn: [Evil-Lyn sees Gwildor using the extra cosmic key] It's the locksmith. The little vermin has another key!

    Skeletor: What? No. Kill him!

  • Skeletor: A female He-Man! Aw-Haw! This is the worst day of my life!

  • Skeletor: Skeletor to King Randor, Skeletor to King Randor. Come in, you royal boob!

  • Skeletor: You left me with our enemies!

    Hordak: And you betrayed me to those same enemies. So I say we are even.

    Skeletor: Perhaps you are right.
