Significant Moments and Facts[]

  • This is Zarm's last appearance in the series.
  • Zarm's name is a modification of Mars, the war god, but also designed to rhyme with "harm". Although Zarm says that he makes no harm, being in Zarm's way is worse than being in harm's way.


Captain Planet: Kids and guns don't mix.


Ron: Don't fight. Hate and prejudice don't solve anything.

Chi: Work together to make things better.
