Karatti - Evil Bone Crushing Goon Squad Mutant
Karatti is another of Flogg’s Mutant Warriors, and was one of the first Mutants to fight He-Man after the Mutants finally broke through the shield. Although he seemed to be quickly dispatched by He-Man on their first encounter, Karatti gained the upper hand later when he challenged He-Man in hand to hand combat. Using his karate training and agility,he was able to knock He-Mans power sword from his hands, and might have bested him in combat if not for the intervention of the Primus gardener, Grot.
While not possessing any special powers or weapons, Karatti more than made up for it with his karate training. He appeared to be a master of the art, confident even He-Man would fall to his power. He is one ofthe only Mutants to ever come close to beating He-Man in battle, and also put up a good fight against Hydron in the Quagmi Swamp, with the Galactic Guardian having to move quickly to avoid Karatti’s powerful strikes. Karatti most often works with Hoove in battle, and together they form a deadly combination of brains and brawn.
Karatti seems loyal and dedicated in his work, when he noticed a Mutant trooper had not saluted Flogg on the Mothership, he demanded that the trooper show his leader the proper respect. Thanks to Karatti’s observation, the trooper was in fact revealed to be He-Man in disguise.He also showed considerably more brave qualities in battle than some of the other Mutants, branding Hydron a coward for not standing still and fighting him. When the Mutants occupied Primus, Quakke reported to Flogg that Karatti had been victorious in conquering the underwater city of Serus.
Commentary: Karatti's prototype name was Crystoll, and he was supposed to be a crystal creature. Some comicbooks used the character with the name Karatti but the original appearance, before the toy with the definitive appearance was released. Karatti was voiced by Ted Cole, in the "New Adventures Of He-Man" cartoon.
