CRINGER / BATTLE CAT
Although Cringer is older, he has not aged, and still retains his youthful personality. Adam has entrusted Cringer to keep an eye on Dare, and make sure he stays out of trouble.
Cringer has a new rival, in the form of Dare's loudmouth pet bird, Craven. The two of them rarely see eye-to-eye.
Cringer is still able to turn into Battle-Cat, and now helps He-Ro as he once did He-Man, into battle against the Evil Warriors. Interestingly, Battle Cat now appears to look more Battle-Lion-like, and even has blue fur. It is unclear if Cringer still retains his original green and orange stripes.
Ram-Man appears the same as he always did, but now with new armor! He sports a new cool black and blue color scheme...
Man-e-faces is still able to use his mimic abilities to spy on the oposition, and get into the enemy territory unnoticed. He seems to have been given a radical makeover, possibly more "mime" like, and not at all like our original Man-e-faces that we know and love. (*see the section at the end for a possible suggestion if people don't like his new look*)
NEW HEROIC WARRIORS
PRINCE DARE / HE-RO
As Dare, he is a 13 year old kid,and still thinks of himself as an orphan who has no idea who his real parents were. His adopted father King Adam promises to help him track them down, and there are suspicions that Dare and Adam are possibly related by blood. Dare has some difficulties adjusting to civilized life, especially living with royalty, but still retains the ability to communicate with animals, and have all the skills of a wildchild raised in the forests.
As he has inherited the power swordfrom his adoptive father, Prince Dare is able to transform into the mighty He-Ro, in which he becomes a mighty warrior. His strength and powers increase, as well as his feral skills, setting him apart from He-Man before him.
CRAVEN / BATTLE-BIRD
An incompetent crow, who has learned the ability to talk from Dare, and has been his companion ever since they were small. Very enthusiastic to battle evil, but not very skillfull in the art of fighting.
When Dare first become He-Ro, Craven was perched on his shoulder, thus also transforming him into the mighty Battle-Bird - a huge armored fighting creature, large enough for Dare to ride on! Battle-Bird and Battle-Cat have a competitive rivalry to see who can win dare's praise, and who can be the bravest and best in battle.
17 year old Kay-La is Man-At-Arm's niece (and presumably Fisto's daughter?), and is instructed with teaching Prince Dare how to compose himself in public. She feels she is ready to be a warrior, as she has been trained in martial arts, swordplay and marksmanship, and feels bitter about having to "babysit" Dare. She is aware that Dare has a crush on her, but her true affections lie with the mighty warrior He-Ro.
Although she is well trained, her immaturity and eagerness to jump into action often gets her in trouble.
This Heroic Warrior can puff up like a weather balloon in the heat of battle, and emit a blast of hurricane-force hot-air, to knock down any Evil Warriors in his way. He can also put out fires, but can be deflated with sharp needles!
Fork-Lift is gung-ho and enthusiastic and able to pick up heavy objects with his fork-like arms, and throw them over his head. He-Man and He-Ro rely on him for moving any heavy duty objects when they are not around.
