Cartoons aside b/c we've seen how some baddies are portrayed as bumbling fools. So if we were serious about the roles these characters have. They're all intelligent, crafty, & all have certain strengths they possess in my mind.
Kronis(The General)-If he didn't decide to try & overtake Skeletor. He had people listening & willing to fight for him. Came up a little short.
Beast Man-Yeah, believe it. Highly underrated & w/ Skelly from beginning.
Evil Lyn-She wants the Power. But at what cost? Can she be trusted??
Tri Klops- Very intelligent. Don't know if he has the guile to achieve.
Trap Jaw-He obviously lost points. But, in essence he's a commander & leader. He's not scared to make the tough decisions.
Mer-Man- He's got what it takes underwater as a leader. But, does he have enough to lead both water & land?
