She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985)
In She-Ra: Princess of Power, Entrapta is the Horde's chief technician and a close sidekick of Catra. Entrapta is a skilled inventor and is credited with designing advanced equipment for the Horde to employ in their battle against the Great Rebellion. Her specialty is devising traps and weaponry.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (2018–2020)
In She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Entrapta is given an updated origin storyline. Her hair is also purple, unlike in the original show where it was pink, and she is able to mentally control it at will as if it were another appendage, manipulating it to fight enemies or to control her various machines. Showrunner Noelle Stevenson later confirmed that Entrapta was written as autistic. Entrapta is portrayed in the series as a skilled but reckless inventor and princess of Dryl. She has great interest in and studies robotics, and despite many failed experiments, she became one of the most knowledgeable people on First Ones' tech in Etheria.
Entrapta quickly joins the Rebellion, though after a partially-botched rescue mission to the Fright Zone, she is nearly incinerated and left for dead by the other princesses. Convinced by Catra that she was abandoned by her friends on purpose, Entrapta is recruited into the Horde and creates highly effective weaponry for them. Entrapta bonds with Hordak, the leader of the Horde, over their shared interest in technology. Hordak reveals his nature as a defective clone to her, and due to Entrapta's love of imperfection, they form a genuine friendship that blossoms into romantic love. However, when Entrapta refuses to activate a portal that she and Hordak have been working on to summon the rest of the Horde to Etheria, Catra exiles her to Beast Island, and lies to Hordak that Entrapta betrayed him. Nonetheless, Entrapta is delighted by the ancient technology left on Beast Island. When Adora and Bow arrive to rescue Entrapta, she is reluctant to leave, due to both the island's resources and to her feelings of abandonment. With that despondency in mind, Entrapta almost allows herself to be consumed by the aggressive vegetation of the island. However, when She-Ra tells Entrapta that leaving with them would allow her to examine their aircraft, an item of ancient technology, Entrapta agrees to help them escape. In the end, Entrapta returns to the Rebellion. When the galactic Horde, led by Hordak's creator Horde Prime, arrives at Etheria, Entrapta proves to be instrumental in foiling his plan to use the planet's inner superweapon to destroy the universe. Hordak's love for Entrapta is shown to be strong enough that it inspires him to rebel against Horde Prime, and the two happily reunite after She-Ra disables the weapon and defeats Horde Prime.
This version of Entrapta has received positive reception from critics.
