Sword Of The Ancients
The Sword of the Ancients is the equivalant of the Sword of Power and is theonly the weapon that can destroy the "Masks of Power"!
Many centuries ago, the evil Demos and Tyrella, sought after the Sword of the Ancients, but it was was placed in a boulder of quartz and hidden beneath Snake Mountain, at the other side of a maze. Demos and Tyrella were imprisoned in the Masks of Evil, until would-be-villains, Aran and Oona found them and put them on. Possessed by the evil spirits of Demos and Tyrella, they began a search to gain possession of the sword.
When He-Man frees the Sword of the Ancients frpm the quartz, it fuses itself with the Sword of Power, proventing any evil from ever getting their hands on it. Once the two swords become one, the spell of the Masks of Evil is broken, freeing Aran and Oona from the curse.
