Serious question - how many distinct MOTU (incorporating POP/NA/POG/etc) characters are there?
Note: I don't mean "how many can be made into toys" (i.e., I'm including Filmation characters like Shadow Weaver & co), and nor do I mean "character designs", i.e.:
- So Filmation, Battle Armour, Movie, NA, 200X, MOTUC etc He-Man are all just one Adam/He-Man.
- Similarly, Filmation, Movie, NA, 200X, etc Sorceress are all just one Teela'Na/Sorceress, but Kuduk Ungol and Veena are separate characters.
So, just how many are there?
EDIT: Since there was confusion:
From cartoons, comics, etc, anyone that got (a) a name, (b) lines *and* (c) a fairly distinctive character design counts. Something like "Rebel extra59", seen only in the background of POP ep 27 using a stock "peasant" character model, doesn't. Extras are props rather than characters, really.
