Skeletor is the main antagonist of the media franchise Masters of The Universe, serving as the main antagonist of both the original 1983 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon and its 1990 continuation The New Adventures of He-Man as well as a recurring antagonist in the 1985 spin-off She-Ra: Princess of Power. He is the leader of the Evil Warriors and He-Man's archenemy.
Known as the "Evil Lord of Destruction", Skeletor seeks to harness the power of Castle Greyskull and use it to rule all of Eternia. He is a former pupil of Hordak, leader of The Evil Horde, until he betrayed his master and sealed him in another dimension. He rules Snake Mountain, from which he and his evil minions plot various schemes to defeat Greyskull's champion He-Man, unlock the power of Castle Greyskull and conquer all of Eternia.
In The New Adventures of He-Man, Skeletor is still the main antagonist, but is presented as being more mature and villainous than in the Filmation series, and has a very morbid sense of humor, often spouting out one-liners and jokes. In this series, Skeletor follows He-Man to the world of Primus and joins forces with the Mutants, pretending to follow the orders of the idiotic Flogg, while manipulating him all the way.
In episode six, Skeletor is transformed into a more powerful version of himself via an evil crystal and stays that way until the final episode. In episode sixty-five, Skeletor is finally defeated when He-Man sends him and his lover Crita rocketing through space. In the final scene, Skeletor vows that he'll return and gives out a chilling laugh.
He was voiced by Alan Oppenheimer in the original 1983 Filmation cartoon, by Campbell Lane in The New Adventures of He-Man, and by Brian Dobson in the 2002 reboot cartoon, and portrayed by Frank Langella in the Masters of the Universe film.

The Villains Wiki is a mirror version to the Heroes Wiki and is dedicated to creating a database of all known villains from all media - ranging from Saturday morning cartoon shows of old to books, video games and comics. Without the villain, there is rarely a plot, and this wiki aims to showcase the characters we all love to hate. All are welcome to join in and contribute here, so long as edits are constructive, discussions are positive, and both are relevant to the subject of villains.
For more information about how you can get started here, please check the "Helping Out" section below, and be sure to mind our "Rules and Policies." Thanks for stopping by!
Before contributing, please read our rules and abide by them.
NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "villain" can be another man's "hero" (no matter how wicked they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.
NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on KnowYourMeme.com or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight.
Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
