She-Ra Princess of Power: The Evil Horde
First seen in the episode "
Image talken from the episode "
Tung Lashor is a Snake-Man, aiding Hordak and the Evil Horde.
Though Tung Lashor was originally intended to be
part of the Snake Men, along with Rattlor, pitted against He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
on Eternia, Filmation gave him the role as an occasional addition to Hordak's arsenal of
evil-doers on Etheria.
Seemingly as a tribute to his original roots,
Tung Lashor was occasionally seen as a partner in crime with Rattlor. [
] However, each of the Snake Men, when showcased,
were just as pathetic in battle as the other one and so making easy battles for She-Ra.
Another similarity between the two is their
assistance to villain ranks. Filmation could never decide where they belonged - primarily
members of King Hiss' clan, the Snake Men, then transferred to the Evil Horde and finally seen
amongst Skeletor's cronies. However, this was less obvious when Rattlor, a villain without a
Horde emblem, appeared with old Bone Brain [
He-Man and She-Ra: A Christmas Special
] than it was with Tung Lashor who suddenly
popped up in Snake Mountain, proudly sporting his Evil Horde symbol! [
The confusion surrounding his changed-allegiance
isn't where our perplexity ends. To throw us even further, Tung Lashor, to give him his full title,
is the only character to be given different names by different characters. One episode forbade him
an identity, [
] and whereas Skeletor announced him as 'Tung Lash' [
], Hordak, on two separate occasions, used either
his full name or Tung, [
] a possible nick-name. It seems strange that such
a minute character could have so many paths, but Tung Lashor achieves this without any question whatsoever.
His prime ability was simply to use his tongue
for absolutely any purpose that needed doing. From useful ventures like capturing Madame Razz, [
] to less useful ones such as cleaning Fright Zone
equipment and even operating machinery, Tung Lashor's tongue was often the source of comic relief,
especially when he got into a tangle with She-Ra. [
Like Mantenna, he was also ridiculed
by Hordak and Imp, but not to the extent of ending up in the deepest depths of the Fright
Zone swimming pool. Instead, they just seemed to give up on him after his failures; his
biggest of which easily being the inability to control a bunch of school-kids!
Finally, a pointless piece of
trivia - notice how small Tung Lashor really is, losing approximately twenty
centimetres to Adora! [
