The season one She-Ra episode "Treasure of the First Ones" features an impressive piece of animation in which we see Sea Hawk duel with Octavia. Now look back at yesterday's post. Notice any similarities? This is because storyboard artist Don Manuel decided that if Sea Hawk and Octavia were going to duel, it should be based on the swordfight sequence seen in the He-Man episode "Ordeal in the Darklands". Of course there is one slight problem that you may notice from looking at these images. As the shadow was a good few feet taller than He-Man, the artist of the latter scene ends up animating Octavia slightly taller than she should be! Regardless of that, it is a beautifully animated scene and a wonderful homage to the He-Man series.
