Stinkor: Masters of the Universe

Stinkor is an anthropomorphic skunk with magical control over his own stench.[21] His action figure used the same mold as Mer-Man, wore the same mold of armor as Mekaneck, and actually smelled of patchouli oil; pogostemon cablin, {(Tamil patchai (Tamil: பச்சை) (green), ellai (Tamil: இலை) (leaf)}, one of only three scented toys Mattel produced (the others being Moss Man and also Perfuma from the She-Ra line).[4]
In the 2002 version, Stinkor was once a Paeleezean named Odiphus who romanticized the lives of outlaws. The Sorceress tells that, in the time of the Great Unrest, Odiphus betrayed his people to Prahvus in the hopes of being accepted into the evil warlord's gang. Upon the warlord's defeat by the Sorceress, Odiphus was captured and about to be executed. The Sorceress intervened and Odiphus' life was spared, although he was exiled and retains a grudge against his people. His first appearance is in the Eternian prison, gleeful over Kobra Khan's escape, although he is not named at that time. Through serendipity, an explosion he caused while meddling in Tri-Klops' lab fulfilled his dream of joining Skeletor's organization. The resulting mutations caused the furry creature to gain height, muscle, and the ability to speak in a humanoid manner. His stench is so awful (even to himself, but especially to Eternia's dragons) that a special armored suit was created for him to keep the smell as under control as possible. Some stink still escapes the suit, causing Skeletor and the other evil warriors to cover their noses and to treat Stinkor politely in order to get him out of the room as efficiently as possible.[41][42]
Stinkor is voiced by Brian Drummond in the 2002 series.
