Powers & Abilities

Sy-Klone has the incredible ability to spin his arms at superspeed at the shoulder.

Prolonging his rotating arms, he can completely spin his body into a whirlwind. As a flying whirlwind, Sy-Klone can slam opponents from the sky.

Sy-Klone is only ever seen at the Royal Palace.

He is a stalwart friend to He-man and the Royal Family.

Here, There, Everywhere Skeletors

Skeletor’s latest plan had him duplicate himself. Each duplicate was only half the size of the original – but there were nearly a hundred of them.

Sy-Klone was chained to an outer wall of the Palace. However, He-man released him.

Sy-Klone then held back the “Skeletoids” with his wind power. This gave He-man and his allies the time to escape.

Spider Droid army attack!

On another occasion, Skeletor sent a squadron of Spider Droids to attack the Palace. He brought up the rear of his squadron in his Collector.

Sy-Klone flew into action, and used his whirlwind ability to destroy the robot ships.

However, this was a diversion. Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, and Whiplash infiltrated the Palace and kidnapped Orko and Teela. They would be used as bargaining chips in Skeletor’s next diabolical plan.

He-man deduced what happened and set out to rescue them. Sy-Klone returned to the Palace in case of more trouble.

Sy-Klone is a blue-skinned man wearing a brightly designed yellow and blue outfit.

There are red rings around the gloves and boots. A red belt and a single ring around his yellow helm.

His chest piece stands out quite a bit.  It has a circular green symbol painted there.


Sy-Klone loves stories.

He’s friendly and a brave defender and enjoys taking it to the bad guys.


He-man: “Sy-Klone, do your stuff !”
Sy-Klone: “You got it ! You guys get clear. I’ll take care of these squirts.”

He-man: “Sometimes fairy tales come true little friend.”
(General alarm sounds)
Sy-Klone: “That’s no fairy tale.”

“I hate it when someone interrupts a story.”

DC Universe Adaptation

(This section proposes ways of using this character in DC Universe stories).

If Sy-Klone is an android, he could have ties to T.O. Morrow and the Red Tornado.

Design notes

Evasion isn’t actually shown. The animation was always of Sy-Klone destroying the Spider Droids.

I’m adding it because he fought an army of Spider Droids without any real danger to himself.

I present Sy-Klone as human-like. It’s possible Sy-Klone is an android, or cyborg. Yet, he could just as easily be wearing an armored chest piece and gained his wind powers through a unique anatomy or superpower.
