"For the honor of Grayskull... I am She-Ra!"

She-Ra is He-Man's twin sister, Princess Adora.

She leads a rebellion on the planet of Etheria, which is ruled by the evil Hordak (Skeletor's old master), assisted by her horse Spirit that transforms into the winged unicorn Swift Wind and her band of rebels in the Whispering Woods.

Her base is the Crystal Castle, home of Light Hope, her mentor and guide, which appears as a magical entity composed of light.

She-Ra was created as a spin-off series from He-Man, trying to provide a female counterpart to He-Man, a heroine for girls to look up to. The series was exceptionally successful, attracting the young female audience to the He-Man franchise whilst maintaining popularity with the male audience.

The series ran for two seasons, 65 episodes in 1985, and 26 episodes in 1986, comprising 93 episodes in total.

The first 5 episodes were later re-edited into the film He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword.

Lyrics

Opening Credits

(She-Ra, She-Ra!)

I am Adora, He-Man's twin sister,
And defender of the Crystal Castle.

This is Spirit, my beloved steed.

Fabulous secrets were revealed to me
The day I held aloft my sword and said:

"For the Honor of Greyskull!"

(She-Ra, She-Ra...)
(She-Ra...)
(She-Ra, She-Ra...)

"I am She-Ra!"

Only a few others share this secret.
Among them are Light Hope, Madame Razz, and Kowl.
Together, we and my friends of The Great Rebellion
Strive to free Etheria from the evil forces of Hordak!

(She-Ra, She-Ra!)

(She-Ra!)

Closing Credits

For the honour of love.
By the power above.

I Have The Power!
I Have The Power!

So can you...

I Have The Power

He-Man:

Somewhere out there, someone needs me.
I don't know how or where, but believe me.
I'll walk the universe to find her.
For better or for worse beside her.

For the honour of love.
By the power above.
I Have The Power!
I Have The Power!

(instrumental)

She-Ra:

A stranger walked into my world.
And when he talked I really heard.

Both:

He spoke of things like love and peace.
The joy it brings will never cease.

For the honour of love.
By the power above.
I Have The Power!
I Have The Power!

She-Ra:

The truth of love is here to guide me.
The strength above is here beside me.

He-Man:

Forever more we'll be together.
Our hearts will soar one to the other.

(instrumental)

Both:

The truth of love will always guide us.
The strength above will be inside us.
Forever more we'll be together.
Our hearts will soar one to the other.

For the honour of love.
By the power above.
We Have The Power!
We Have The Power!
So can you...
