Lion-O and Tygra now have a competitive relationship that extends over. Lion-O fills a role which not many young protagonists do, that of a ruler, something a more unique protagonist in how he solves problems and achieves his goals. He needs to use kindness and diplomacy to build relations with the other. which are the Cat's Lair and the Tower of Omens and he is in a relationship with Cheetara.

Although cunning and skillful, he is truly a child in a man's body, and throughout the series, must learn what it takes to become a true leader and gain true maturity. In the latter half of the show's first season, Lion-O has to put all that he has learned to use in the "Anointment Trials", which consist of contests of strength, speed, cunning, and intelligence this last is referred to as "mind-power" in the story arc against each of the other Thundercats.
Complicating matters for Lion-O is the fact that he is required to be unarmed for the contests; moreover, the other Thundercats are not permitted to assist him. The Mutants attempt, but ultimately without success, to take advantage of this last in an effort to leave the Thundercats leaderless. Ultimately triumphing over Mumm-Ra in a final battle "The Trial Of Evil" in the heart of the villain's pyramid in which he discovers that Mumm-Ra, like any Egyptian mummy, is dependent upon his sarcophagusLion-O is crowned the true Lord of the Thundercats in a grand inaugural ceremony attended by nearly every inhabitant of Third Earth.
It is also hinted that he has romantic feelings for Willa, and Mandora. In the version, Lion-O is a teenager instead of being a boy inside an adult body.
Lion-O can also be a bit of a hothead but is by far the most patient and understanding cat next to Cheetara. He is the only one at the beginning who believes that technology and Mumm-Ra exist even though technology is sold across Third Earth. Lion-O believes that the other races of Third Earth should be treated equal as seen when Lion-O was defending two persecuted Lizards from some Thunderians until Claudus broke up the fight.
His catchphrase is "Whiskers! It is shown that Lion-O had feelings for Cheetara until in "Between Brothers" when she confessed her feelings for Tygra. In "Native Son", it is shown that Lion-O had an unnamed mother who died giving birth to him. In Recipe for Disaster it is shown that Lion-O had attempted to work through his relationship issues with Cheetara by pursuing Pumyra, trying multiple times to court her, all of which ended in disaster.
However, after saving her from Mumm-Ra yet again she gives him a kiss on the cheek in thanks. However, in "What Lies Above Part 2", the feeling was revealed to be an act as she reveals her loyalty and love to Mumm-Ra and only toyed with Lion-O's emotions to further her advantage. He is also gifted with "mind-power"—the ability to create lifelike illusions in other people's minds; he used this for Lion-O's Anointment Trial, but it puts a great strain on him.
He uses a whip-like bolas in combat, with which he can render himself invisible to the naked eye. This verifies that indeed, Tygra is the second-in-command.
Tygra's weakness is that he is not able to swim when not invisible; also, Tygra has shown to be easily influenced by external stimuli more than any other Thundercat "The Garden of Delights", "Turgamar the Tuska" and "Crystal Canyon" ; he also claimed to be shy when being a kid.
Patient, analytic and calm, Tygra is the most quiet Thundercat, and usually considers every part of the problem before making a decision. Where creators Ted Wolf and Leonard Starr described Panthro's character as being based on "strength" and Cheetara's character as being based on "speed", Tygra's character was described as being based on "integrity".
In the series, the character is the adopted older brother of Lion-O. A flirtatious ladies man, Tygra possesses xenophobia, a jealous streak, and superiority to Lion-O in every way, all of which often serve to cause friction between himself and Lion-O. As he would learn later in the season, Tygra is of the Tiger Clan who were forced, by the spiteful other cat clans, to live in the frozen mountains far from Thundera due to their steadfast continued loyalty to Mumm-Ra even after the latter's entrapment.
Sent to Thundera as a baby by his biological father Javan, Tygra was raised by Claudus and his wife with the latter loving Tygra dearly prior to her death while giving birth to Lion-O. Losing both the right to succeed his foster father and the only mother he knew, Tygra grew to hate Lion-O and questioning the latter's decisions after he became the new Lord of the Thundercats. Furthermore, Tygra fell in love with Cheetara when they first met as children in the past, although he believed she never returned his feelings for her.Tygra and Cheetara- Crush
Her apparent friendship with Lion-O gave him another reason to bear a grudge on his brother. Tygra and Cheetara eventually become a couple after Cheetara confesses her love for Tygra. Soon after, Tygra meets his birth father and inherits his whip.
In "What Lies Above" he is explained to be a natural pilot able to fly any craft without any training at all due to his ancestors serving as pilots under Mumm-Ra. Tygra is renamed Tigro in the Spanish, German and French versions. Panthro[ edit ] Panthro voiced by Earle Hyman in the original series, Kevin Michael Richardson  in the series is the next noble and greatest warrior after Jaga, and based on the panther.
He is also physically the strongest and is a cunning warrior in combat, relying as much on martial arts as on physical strength. Panthro is a complex ThunderCat.
On the one hand he has great passion, love of family, and life. With an infectious laugh, accompanied by a good sense of humor. On the other hand, he is a stone cold warrior.
ThunderCats: "The Sword of Omens/Ancient Spirits of Evil" Review - IGN
He lives by the ThunderCats warrior code. Pride, excellence, and loyalty are a hallmark of what makes Panthro tick. Because of his passion he is known to lose his patience with other ThunderCats. On the field of battle, however, he is cool, calm and collected, although he has a phobia of bats. Because of this, Panthro has gained respect both from friends and enemies alike.
They respect the king, but fear the panther. In combat, he uses a pair of nunchaku with open-away cat-paws, which house several chemical spray-compounds, and objects such as ball bearings, that he can use against foes. The spikes on his chest bands can be used like projectile weapons or as rappelling lines. In the series, Panthro is one of Claudus' more loyal soldiers who was sent with his friend Grune to find the Book of Omens.
Their attempted search resulted with Mumm-Ra's release and Panthro betraying Grune, who while fighting Grune, fell down an abyss and seemingly was killed. However, Panthro survived and constructed the ThunderTank, which he later used to save Lion-O's group from Slythe's platoon. Though he questioned Lion-O's ability to lead, Panthro eventually accepted him as the new king. Unlike the rest of the ThunderCats, he never learned how to swim.
Panthro loses his arms while trapping Grune in the astral plane. He was later outfitted with mechanical arms built by the Berbils which can also elongate themselves. In "The Pit," it was revealed that he was an old friend of Dobo back when they were slaves in a gladiator arena called The Pit which was located in a city that is inhabited by Dogs.
Panthro later escaped the Pit when it turned out that the match the next day would be a death match. This caused Dobo to feel bitter towards Panthro, until Panthro revealed the death match would pit him and Dobo against each other.
In "What Lies Above" it is revealed Panthro is afraid of heights, which he finds out during the Feliner's first flight. Cheetara[ edit ] Cheetara voiced by Lynne Lipton in the original series, Emmanuelle Chriqui  and Grey DeLisle young in the series is a female warrior, based on the cheetah. She is the only adult female ThunderCat until the later appearance of Pumyra. She is as lovely as she is brave and caring. Often a voice of reason, she is also the bearer of a budding "sixth sense," detecting when something is unsafe or if evil is near.
This precognitive sense, which Cheetara regards as a curse for the most part, also allows her to perceive visions—whether involuntary or by forcing herself—but can leave her very weak; she may require days to regain her strength. She has incredible speed, once clocked at m. She can maintain this speed only for brief periods, but with it, she is very fast in combat. Her weapon of choice is a baton that expands into a bo staff that can grow or shrink to variable lengths.
When not in use, it is attached to her left armband. In the series, Cheetara is one of the last remaining cleric warriors.
When she originally tried to join the Order of Clerics as a child, she was initially turned down by Jaga, because even though she had the speed possessed by clerics, she lacked the patience. Despite being turned down, Cheetara decided to show Jaga she had the patience needed to become a cleric, and began to wait in front of the Order's doors. While waiting, she was given a flower by Tygra, which helped Cheetara sustain herself for days, until Jaga finally allowed her to join the clerics.
In the aftermath of Thundera's downfall, Cheetara's possibly the sole surviving member of the Order, other than Jaga, who lives on in spirit form. Cheetara initially served as an encourager to Lion-O, since she never shunned him for his interest in technology and initially seems to support his kindness to other races.
During the first half of the first season, both Tygra and Lion-O harbour romantic feelings for her and competed for her love. Originally many believed Cheetara held feelings for Lion-O and would choose him, but in the end it's revealed she has always been in love with Tygra since their childhood when he had shown her kindness and support during the days she desired to become a cleric. Cheetara and Tygra become a couple shortly thereafter and Cheetara later abandons her duties as a Cleric in "New Alliances" to save Tygra's life.
WilyKit and WilyKat[ edit ] WilyKit voiced by Lynne Lipton in original series, Madeleine Hall in the series and WilyKat voiced by Peter Newman in original series, Eamon Pirruccello in the series are twin siblings, Kat being the older brother and Kit as the younger sister where both of them are based on the wildcat ; they are jointly referred to as "ThunderKittens" by the other characters, although technically they are older than Lion-O.
In the original series, Kat appears to be the equivalent to a human that is twelve years of age. They are the mischief-makers, and often have their own lessons to learn alongside Lion-O while they live on Third Earth, where they frequently use tricks and traps to combat evil.
Kit is the more adventurous, while the older Kat usually errs on the side of caution. Kit also appears to be the more agile, and at times, she employs a rolling-attack against the enemy. Their agility is often displayed when they ride their "space boards"—specially designed flying devices shaped like Earth surfboards that can carry them over long distances.
Each uses special capsules, balls and other gimmick weapons carried in pouches and on their belts. They sometimes use slingshots to fire these at the Mutants or other foes. They also carry trick lariats, with which they can either tangle and ensnare foes, or use to pull themselves out of danger. In the first episode, they appeared to be slightly older than Lion-O, but when they went into suspended animation, they did not age as far in their suspension capsules as Lion-O did in his.
In the version, they are younger in age and were originally from a low-class family in the countryside living with their mother, their father, and their two siblings. When the two lost their father to a tornadoresulting in the family becoming more down-trodden, the twins resolve to run away from home to find the lost city of El Dara and become rich.
However, upon arriving to Thundera, they were forced to become street urchins and lock-picking pickpockets in order to survive the slums with their aspirations the only thing keeping them going. When the Lizards attack Thundera, the two manage to escape during the chaos before eventually teaming up with the ThunderCats on their journey. In this version, WilyKit and WilyKat have tails, which none of the main adult ThunderCats except Panthro possess how Panthro lost his is never shown nor explainedand visible external ears.
Like in the original series, WilyKat possess gimmick weapons with his usual weapon being a grappling hook called a Flick.
Romance in ThunderCats/Should Lion-O have a love interest?
WilyKit also possesses a special musical instrument called a Flupe that she uses to play a soothing melody that their mother used to hum to the siblings, able to put anyone in a hypnotic trance. During her time with the Elephants, learning to use her flute to shatter boulders when in tune with the Elephant's trumpets. Over the course of the first half in season one, Wilykit gained a spiritual outlook on life as she and her brother become more involved in their adult companions' fight.
This new outlook allowed the youth to assume Cheetara's abandoned role of Cleric, encouraging Lion-O when he needs it the most. ThunderCats who appeared later in the series[ edit ] At the start of the series' second season, it was revealed to Lion-O after having a recurring dream about the final moments of the destruction of Thundera that there are three more Thunderians living on Third Earth. They survived the cataclysm when rescued by a Ro-Bear Berbil scout ship piloted by two Berbils.
The ship was damaged in the final explosion of the planet and made it to Third Earth landing on an unknown island somewhere in the northern sea. This was revealed to Lion-O when Cheetara focuses her powers into tapping into this knowledge. After Mumm-Ra tries to capture them to use as bait to destroy the ThunderCats at Firerock Mountain which is where a lot of Thundrainium is locatedthese three Thunderians are rescued and brought back to the Cat's Lair, where Lion-O anoints them as new ThunderCats.
They initially come to live in Cat's Lair until after the arrival of the Lunataks, at which time they are stationed at the Tower of Omens. Lynx-O[ edit ] Lynx-O voiced by Doug Preis in the original series, Kevin Michael Richardson in the version is the oldest of the trio who is based on the lynx. Lynx-O was spared the sight of the destruction of their homeworld by a cruel twist of fate: Because of this injury, Lynx-O has had to adapt to survive on Third Earth, and has done so by honing his other senses to super-human levels.
His sense of touch, smell, taste and hearing are far above those of the other ThunderCats, and this affords him a type of "sixth sense," though it is not like the one Cheetara possesses. Though blind, Lynx-O is still a formidable fighter. His sense of touch allows him to find pressure points on a foe's body to knock them off balance or stun them. He can also feel vibrations, which allow him to evade attacks and capture, and can use a Sonic Reflector as a weapon in combat.
His greatest skill comes in utilizing a special " braille board"—a device that allows him to translate information coming from sensor systems inside the Tower of Omens, enabling him to see into the gloom of Dark Side. This same device also allows him to pilot the ThunderStrike aircraft through the Valley of Mists when the ThunderCats need to find a way through to Dark Side.
In the series, Lynx-O is a general under Claudus. He first made a cameo as one of Thundera's lookout sentries. It is unknown as to whether or not he survived Thundera's destruction. If there was a season two, it would have depicted Lynx-O's history with Slithe and show how the Lizards sided with Mumm-Ra. Bengali[ edit ] Bengali voiced by Peter Newman is one of the two younger Thundereans among the trio, named after the bengal tiger and resembling the white variant. This warrior is a skilled blacksmith like his father before him.
This talent proves valuable after the Sword of Omens is once again broken. Fast and agile like Tygra, Bengali is called "brother" by him, but it is unclear if they share a true familial bond or if the greeting is merely meant as a term of endearment given that the new ThunderCats repeatedly call the originals "Nobles" while referring to themselves as "mere Thunderians," it seems unlikely that there is any family relationship between the two.
Another possibility is that because they are both tigers, the Ben-Gal clan may be cousins to the Tygra clan, even though one is considered nobility while the other is not. In combat, Bengali wields a weapon called the Hammer of Thundera which he also uses when doing blacksmith-related work. It can shoot energy blasts, and carries smoke pellets in its handle, to allow him to cause confusion and provide cover for withdrawal from a fight.
He is the only ThunderCat who does not appear in the series, although according to the creators if the show had continued, he would have appeared in the second season as the son of Tygra and Cheetarah. Some of Pumyra's likeness appears to have been drawn from horror hostess Elvirawith the most obvious being their similar-sounding name and hairstyle.
This young woman who is based on the puma is a talented healer and medic.
She uses her knowledge of Thunderian medicine, combined with the wide range of medicinal supplies to be found on Third Earth, to help heal and cure her fellow ThunderCats. Her compassionate nature lends to offering an alternative perspective, solving problems or conflict without fighting by using compromise and understanding. Possibly the most agile ThunderCat next to the ThunderKittens, Pumyra employs an incredible leaping ability—often able to vault higher than even great jumpers like Tygra or the ThunderKittens.
She was also shown to be able to move in short bursts of super-speed while moving fast she resembled a flash of lightning darting from place to place. Panthro, Cheetara and Tygra cannot intervene in order to avoid causing a problem with the Dogs, but instead try to convince Dobo to release them. Dobo refuses and recalls how in the past Panthro had escaped one night and left Dobo alone with all the enemies they made during their slavery. As the battle between Lion-O and Pumyra commenced, Lion-O refused to fight her to show his loyalty towards his people.
Pumyra, intimidated by this, proceeds to beat him without any mercy. The group pleads for Dobo to stop the fight, but he refuses.
Dobo says that this battle shows how Cats have no loyalty, until Panthro explains why he left that night. Panthro tells him that the next battle was to be a death match against Dobo and himself.
Dobo asks if he ran because he was afraid he would have lost but Panthro says that he was afraid that he might have won. Lion-O continues to stand up after taking a beating from Pumyra's attacks, stating that he promised to stand by her. Pumyra learns he is truly a strong and caring king and refused to continue the fight.
Dobo states that since both forfeited.
Cheetara (2011 TV series)
After learning why Panthro left and witnessing the loyalty between Pumyra and Lion-O, he lets them live and grants them both their freedom.
With old wounds fully healed and new friends made, Lion-O asks Pumyra where the other Cats that were taken by the lizards are now and she replies "Mount Plun-Darr" as she points to an ominous looking castle. Weapon s Cheetara's signature weapon is her staff, Cheetara wielding her staff. Her first staff had the ability to expand and contract, depending on the need.
After her old staff broke, she was given a new one by the Viragor. The new staff has the power to grow out tree roots and launch darts.
ThunderCats () / YMMV - TV Tropes
It also has the extending ability that her old staff possessed. And with both staffs she was able to hover by rotating it above her quickly. Cheetara is a powerful magician and the last living Cleric. She's also the fastest cat in Thundera and an expert in many forms of combat, including staff fighting. Appearance She has blonde hair with spots. She wears a brown outfit that exposes lots of her cleavage and midriff, and sandals.
In one of the more dramatic revamps, this incarnation of Cheetara is younger and leaner. She appears to be in what we would equate to in human years her early twenties with waist-length blonde hair, speckled with the characteristic cheetah spots. The front shorter section of hair has been brought forward, creating a bangs effect around her somewhat long face.
Her face markings differ slightly from the original, presenting a pale pink upsweep around her pale red eyes, giving the impression of drastic eye makeup bordered by short, blonde eyebrows. Her two piece costume is comprised of three tones of brown, the upper half sporting the signature red jewel present in all of the ThunderCat costumes. The lower section appears to be brown shorts with long, darker strips that seem to function as suspenders for her foot coverings which, similar to all of the Cat costumes, leave the claws of the feet exposed.
Cheetara's costume is accessorized with brown wrist-to-elbow guards that sport a disc around each wrist. These discs are also present around her ankles. Personality Cheetara is the most emotionally mature of the team and seems to be able read the feelings of others quite easily. She also appears to be like a supporter to Lion-Oas evidenced by her commentary while helping him defend the two lizards who were being abused by her fellow Thunderians.
She is also the most humble, unlike the bold Lion-O, the cynical and competitive Tygra, or the brooding Panthro. She's also the most supportive of Lion-O, due to her berating Tygra and Panthro for not taking him seriously as a leader in the Journey to the Tower of Omens.
At first she didn't seem to be able to tell that Lion-O and Tygra were fighting for her affections. Relationships Tygra Tygra is Cheetara's mate and were old friends, having known each other since they were much younger.
Tygra has always held much deeper feelings for her since the day she first came to join the clericsand she in return. When she formed a friendship with Lion-O, Tygra would grow even more jealous and resent his younger brother. He would usually try to outshine him, not just to impress Cheetara, but to prove himself to be more capable than Lion-O. Luckily, the betrayal was discovered at first not to be Tygra's, as he and Lion-O returned from the hut with resolved differences. That night when she learned what Tygra and Lion-O went through in the Astral plane, she and Tygra confess their feelings for one another.
She also explains she had chosen him several years ago, resulting in a passionate kiss and in the end both become a couple. Unbeknownst to them, a shocked Lion-O was watching their exchange. This was the betrayal Anet had predicted. At one time Cheetara would actually give up a fight, just to save Tygra.
Lion-O Cheetara and Lion-O have a close friendship together. Since first meeting him, she saw something different yet compelling within him as he shows a compassionate will and was against the mistreatment on the lizard prisoners and other species by his own people. Create New Accidental Innuendo: Lion-O announces that he'll ring the bell, whereupon Tygra replies "And I'm gonna ring yours," smiling and tipping a wink. The series' fans, unaware of the phrase's usage in sport Tygra has threatened to beat Lion-O into a concussionand remembering that Tygra has previously smiled and winked to explicitly flirtseized on the exchange's oddly sexual undertone to launch a Not Blood Siblings Ho Yay ship.
Is the Duelist really a true master swordsman, or is he just a hustler who preys on overconfident amateur swordsmen, using cheap tactics and overwhelming his opponents for a quick win, and not as skilled as his reputation or ego makes him out to be? For some people, the season-end hook-up between Tygra and Cheetara came from way out of left field. For even more people, the revelation that Pumyra is with Mumm-ra.
His constant jealously of Lion-O, Jerkass behavior, and being a light Karma Houdini who gets chosen by Cheetara over the generally more heroic Lion-O has earned him a fair share of haters. Lion-O and Cheetara have become this since episode 14, thanks to the Love Triangle.
People like her for being a strong, passionate woobie, or they hate her for acting cruelly and inconsistently. And things got worse after the season finale. This is rapidly becoming apparent. One complaint against the series is that it's very hard to leap in halfway and know what's going on.
The creators have stated that they tried to plot the show into tightly focused, 13 episode arcs because they know how hard it is to get a second season these days and wanted to make sure the audience got a complete story just in case things don't go their way. Some episodes don't really end as much as they just stop only to pick up right where they left off the next week.
