Kobra Khan steals into the Royal Palace and puts everyone to sleep, allowing him to kidnap Queen Marlena. Khan and Mer-Man take the queen to Skeletor, while Clawful and Whiplash create a deceptive path to lead He-Man to Skeletor's trap. He-Man, Teela, and Man-At-Arms follow the misleading trail in the Dragon Walker. Cringer, who was guarding the queen, wakes up and feels guilty for the queen's disappearance.
He tracks the queen's smell and realizes He-Man has taken the wrong path. He and Orko pursue Mer-Man, who slows them down by destroying the footbridge and unleashing his Mer-Men. Orko and Cringer reach Snake Mountain and free Queen Marlena. Orko takes the queen back to the palace and gives Cringer a charm of bravery to help him warn He-Man about Skeletor's trap, his bionic bird Screeech.
Clawful and Whiplash lead He-Man to Snake Mountain, where Skeletor unleashes Screeech. Cringer jumps on Screeech and covers its eyes, saving He-Man. He-Man and company send Skeletor on the run and return to the Royal Palace, where King Randor honors Cringer's bravery.
