The season two He-Man episode "The Great Books Mystery" is famous for the appearance of the one-shot villain Batros! It is hard not to be immediately drawn to Batros as he shows intelligence and promise within a few seconds of gracing our screens for the very first time. Visually he is very appealing too with his striking resemblance to the Evil Horde characters, his bat symbol looking like an early version of the Horde bat emblem, and his wings, which hang like a short cape reminding us of the cape on the Hordak action figure! Despite Batros' early promise, he loses his shining-star status as soon as Skeletor enters the episode! It is a great shame that Batros never appeared again in the series, because if there was ever a character worthy of a second appearance, it was him!
