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!"
This was one of my favorite cartoons growing up the late 80's. It was on Saturday afternoons as part of the two-hour block consisting of "G.I. Joe," "Transformers," and "Jem." I was captivated by the adventures of the Spectral Knights as they battled those evil Darkling Lords, as they fought each other and the various magical elements of the planet Prysmos. I think this was one of the first cartoons to have recurring sub-plots. This cartoon is definatly a treasure worth seeking out. The tapes have become rather rare, so if you see one in your video store, snap it up and become 8 again.
