"'Ey big man! Do you like killing and/or being killed? Then come to Gladius to compete in our galaxy-wide gladiator tournament. There's gold, girls, and glory for killing whatever stinky alien you're pointed at. So come on down to Gladius today – we're running out of idiots!"
Gladius quote
— Gladius advertisement in "The Incredibly Strange Creatures That Stopped Living and Became Mixed up with the Starbarians (Part 1)"
Episode 2 Gladius 3

Gladius resembles a galea – a Roman soldier's helmet.

Gladius is a location in Starbarians. The setting appears in an advertisement in part one of "The Incredibly Strange Creatures That Stopped Living and Became Mixed up with the Starbarians", where Killgar and Hogstrong learn of its televised "galaxy-wide gladiator tournament" and decide to head there at the end of the episode, missing the distress signal from the primitive planet.

The setting will thus presumably make a physical appearance in the next episode.

Trivia Edit

  • "Gladius" is a Latin word for a sword, and one of the words derived from "gladius" is "gladiator", which translates to "swordsman".
