The Vendari, an alien race from a world with no evil, come to Eternia wanting to pit the greatest representatives of good and evil on Eternia against each other. Teela forces Adam to keep training, so the Vendari select Fisto instead of He-Man. Skeletor uses the Evilgizer to increase the evil power of Spikor, making him the Vendari's selection. The Vendari begin the games by giving Fisto and Spikor seekers that allow them to find game pieces that are worth a hundred points each. Mer-Man, Beast Man, and Skeletor cheat throughout the games to help Spikor collect game pieces. He-Man takes Fisto's place when Skeletor cheats. He-Man finds the thousand-point game piece and ties the game. With one game piece left, He-Man and Spikor race up a tree to get it. Spikor knocks He-Man from the tree. So He-Man shakes the tree, catching the game piece and knocking Spikor down. The Vendari announce He-Man, and the side of good, the victor.
