* TheBadGuyWins: Played with. While he does win the race and Piston Cup by ramming into the King and knocking him off the track, damaging him badly (in a very similar fashion to what happened with Doc years ago) he receives absolutely no praise or cheering after his victory, but rather a series of boos, his own merchandise being pelted at him and likely a permanently ruined reputation as a racecar

Added DiffLines:

* MeaninglessVillainVictory: He [[spoiler: wins the Piston Cup only because Lightning forfeited his own chance, stopping just short of the finish line to go back and help The King after Chick rammed him off the track. This, combined with his gloating, results in him being denied the opportunity to represent Dinoco and booed off the stage at the cup presentation, rendering his victory hollow and meaningless.]]

* BerserkButton: It's a bad idea to threaten Lightning in his presence -- [[spoiler:just ask the group of bad guys he took ''by himself.'']]

* AppropriatedAppellation: His nickname of "Thunder" comes from him always placing after Lightning [=McQueen=]. After his surge in popularity after [=McQueen=]'s disappearance however, he takes the nickname and ''runs with it.''



%%* SmugSnake

to:

%%* * ShoddyKnockoffProduct: Becomes this after Lightning vanishes, not only ripping off his trademark Lightning Bolt sticker with a Thunderbolt sticker but also knocking off [=McQueen=]'s "Ka-chow!" CatchPhrase with a much more forced "Ka-chicka!"

SmugSnake



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Not even mentioned in the sequel, despite the presence of a gigantic racing tournament which he'd no doubt have interest in.

in, though it's entirely possible the entire debacle during the Piston Cup caused his career to tank.

* FragileFlower: He gets very upset over every little thing. He's a very sensitive person and there were signs that he got upset in the first film but he showed more emotions in the second film.
