1983 Filmation MOTU/POP Animated Series Canon:
Cunning and manipulative, Entrapta was a skilled Horde technician who invented a wide range of technology, from traps to highly advanced tanks. She used her two incredibly long braids of hair to attack foes and control her equipment. Possessing a snobbish disposition, she was quick to dismiss Rebel attacks and always assumed her own methods to be superior.
1983 Mattel MOTU/POP Mini-Comics Canon:
In addition to entangling victims in her tresses, the POP minicomics gave Entrapta a power referred to as a "golden glow" which bewitched and entranced her enemies, rendering them harmless. This power apparently came from her golden armor, though this was not explicitly stated. The combination of her deadly locks and hypnotic power made Entrapta a dangerous foe indeed.
1984 German MOTU/POP Audio Plays Canon:
The German audio plays presented Entrapta as the most inscrutable Princess of Etheria. No one was ever entirely sure whose side she was on, though both She-Ra and Catra respected the Fairy of Entanglement and allowed her to come and go from their homes. Entrapta would help She-Ra and her friends at times, and Catra and Clawdeen at others. She also had the power to turn anything she touched into gold.
1986 UK Egmont MOTU/POP Comic Magazines Canon:
The UK comics offered a very different portrayal of Entrapta, depicting her as a mysterious and reclusive figure who dwelled within the Prism of Lights. Solitary, confused, and distrustful, Entrapta was uncertain of her allegiance on Etheria. She found it difficult to trust anyone, though she did respect She-Ra and was at times willing to help her, on the condition that She-Ra would owe her a favor in return.
2008 Masters Of The Universe Classics Canon:
Es’Tra Vesselak was an illegitimate heiress of Bright Moon when Catra recruited her into the Horde during their invasion of Etheria. Becoming known as Entrapta, she used her long magical hair to ensnare her enemies. Later, after the Rebels had weakened their grip on Etheria, Entrapta followed Hordak to Eternia and fought alongside the Horde in the Second Ultimate Battleground.
2018 DreamWorks POP Animated Series Canon:
She is the Princess of Dryl. Cheerful and manic, Entrapta has a love of technology and robots. She has long, prehensile twin-tails that are often shown as second limbs. Entrapta often sacrifices her social life to focus on scientific research and rather than creating relationships, and tends to study them and is bothered when her peers misunderstand her.
Entrapta was a princess that belonged to the rebellion, but became the Horde's technician after thinking that the princesses abandoned her in a mission and realizing how advanced the Horde's tech is. Unlike most princesses, she does not need a gemstone for her abilities. Prior to joining the Rebellion, she lived only with three servants in her winding castle and replaced the rest with robots. She appears to be close friends with Catra, despite Catra constantly trying to harm her friends in the Rebellion. Entrapta is a skilled inventor, and is credited with designing advanced equipment for The Horde. Her specialties are computer hacking, and using her prehensile hair.
Princess Entrapta is a technological genius and inventor who controls a host of robots, even being able to make a advanced Horde Bot named EKS. She also has prehensile hair that can change lengths and are strong enough to casually lift Entrapta off the ground. She is extremely smart and has the abilities and knowledge to throw the entirety of Etheria off balance given the right materials. Entrapta is also able to decipher First Ones’ technology and reprogram any robot she comes into contact with. An example of reprograming is when she and the other princesses infiltrated the Horde and Entrapta reprogrammed a Horde Bot making it friendly and was named Emily.
