Kothos' second appearance.

"Revenge is Never Sweet" from He-Man's second season featured the return of Kothos; the evil wizard seeking revenge on Evil-Lyn. In his second appearance Filmation decided to change the colors of his costume and lighten his skin tone slightly. Why these changes were made is unknown, but the color scheme in his second appearance works a great deal better than his first!

That's probably why they did it. :P

I've always thought the color scheme in his first appearance was way better.

Agreed! Maybe the color change was a side effect of Kothos being turned into a Sand Slug? :) Even the colors and design of the two versions of the Sand Slug were different, between the two episodes! I love the way this episode ends, beginning with Kothos worrying about Evil-Lyn destroying his palace. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I've often wondered whether the change in Kothos' skin colour between "The Witch and the Warrior" and "Revenge Is Never Sweet" was down to political correctness...? :)

Didn't the other characters regularly refer to him as "Kathos" throughout "Revenge Is Never Sweet" as well? :)
