As the He-Man pilot episode "Diamond Ray of Disappearance" has a few minor differences when compared to the rest of the series. Probably the most noticeable difference is Skeletor's weapon of choice. Instead of the villain wielding his famous Havoc Staff, he is shown to be in possession of an axe! The axe much like the Havoc Staff could fire out bursts of energy and show Skeletor what he needed to see via the globe. It is odd that Filmation had the character appear with this weapon in only one episode. Without question the Havoc Staff is a much more appropriate weapon for Skeletor, but the rarity of the axe gives it come credibility.
