The Fright Zone is the kingdom where Hordak rebuilt his army after being transported to Etheria. It is one of the main seven Kingdoms of Etheria, and was formerly ruled by a race of Scorpion hybrids before the arrival of the Horde. It is the home of the Black Garnet runestone.


The Fright Zone exists within a barren wasteland full of broken-down machines and pollution. It is comprised mainly of aging technology, pipes, and piles of discarded junk situated within what appears to be a large crater with raised, spiked edges. At the center of The Fright Zone, there's a large tower or ship with jagged edges that resembles a giant insect. Leading out of the Fright Zone, a large canyon filled with machinery opens up to a field of flowers before approaching the Whispering Woods. The woods act as a barrier that prevents the Horde from entering Bright Moon. After Adora freed the magic stored in the Heart of Etheria in Season Five, the land and buildings in The Fright Zone have been all covered in vegetation.


Scorpia's people once lived in The Fright Zone, presumably for generations. They had possession of an Elemental Runestone — the Black Garnet, which was given to Hordak after he invaded. The Horror Hall was the court of the kingdom, and it was presided over by Scorpia's royal family. Once Hordak assumed control over The Fright Zone, it remained the base of operations for The Horde on Etheria. Later on Adora and Catra become the center members of the fright zone throughout there childhood years until Adora realized how the horde was evil making a full on betrayal to catra. The fright zone officially led by force-captain catra declared war on the princesses alliance and She-Ra to claim Etheria.


Most inhabitants stopped to be part of The Fright Zone in the epilogue of the series finale.
