Trivia

In the comic book, Galadria and Virulina eventually received shields similar to the power-staffs, with the abilities of healing (with the incantation "By warmth of heart, your pain I feel. Grant me the power your wounds to heal!") and disease (with the incantation "Wind of sickness, illness most vile, strike down my enemy; with disease revile!"), respectively. In the toy line, it was revealed that the Lancer Cycle's invulnerability through the energy-created hands forming from it, the Capture Chariot's to shoot fireballs, the Dagger Dart's to emit an energy-based monster to attack, and the Dagger Assault's having a Magical Dungeon to remove a totem also used spells by their respective drivers Ectar, Feryl, Mortredd, and Reekon. They were in this order:
  • "Shield this craft from one and all. Reflect, deflect, depose and fall!"
  • "Draw upon the breath of stars, and scorch the skies with fiery scars!"
  • "Wings of steel shall ride the breeze. Invade the air, the land, the seas!"
  • "Flay the flesh, lay bare the bone. Upon this field, let grief be sown!"

Best cartoon ever
15 January 2009 | by wilsonbd79See all my reviews

I loved Visionairies. It was brilliantly written with an older age theme compared to similar cartoons such as Thunder cats.

Very well thought out with the way the good and the bad knights had animals they turned into and special powers to use from their magic staffs. The good and the bad knights were opposites to each other pretty much with the good guys being 'way too nice for their own good' and the bad knights a bit over obsessed with getting their enemies. This just made for some classic action. Don't know how it didn't get an second series! Everyone I know who watched it at the time rate it as the best cartoon they have seen...Classic! You can watch every episode on You tube if you have the time.......and that is time well spent! Ben
