!Lion-O
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_liono_174x252_d_3632.png
-->''Voiced by: WillFriedle''

Lion-O is a prince, made Lord of the Thundercats due to the murder of his father, Claudus. In contrast to the [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}} 80's series,]] Lion-O is introduced as a brash, idealistic teenager.
----
!!Tropes associated with Lion-O:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Always wears his cuirass
* AdaptiveArmor: When Lion-O obtains the Spirit Stone and places it in his claw gauntlet, it extends to cover his full arm.
* AesopAmnesia: It seems like every other episode is Lion-O learning the same lesson about listening to his teammates and not doing his own thing without their input.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Popular opinion in Thundera is Lion-O is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} for his obsession with technology, a CategoryTraitor for his Lizard advocacy, a CulturalRebel and a thoroughly InadequateInheritor when compared to his brother.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: [[spoiler:With a choice between saving Pumyraa and the Sword of Plunn-Darr, he picks Pumyra.]]
* AlwaysSecondBest: Though Lion-O is painfully aware of this already, his brother Tygra sees fit to loudly and ''[[DiscussedTrope explicitly]]'' inform Lion-O of this in front of a huge arena of people before roundly defeating him in a public sporting event.
--> '''Tygra:''' "When it comes to everything except the crown, you're always going to be second place."
* AncestralWeapon: The Sword of Omens, passed down from his father, is "the sword that built the Thundercats' empire"
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Of course Lion-O's destined to master his AncestralWeapon, a sword that OnlyTheChosenMayWield with accompanying PsychicPowers. His mane is a paler shade of its PowerCrystal, his eyes, a paler shade of its cross-guard.
* AudienceSurrogate: The most frequent viewpoint character.
* BareFistedMonk: Acquits himself very well against all but the leader of a gang of Alley Cats while otherwise unarmed, but puts in a poorer showing while competing against his brother in the games.
** Later puts in a much better showing against a rat slaver in "The Curse of Ratilla," and hammers Ratar-O himself with an impressive right hook in the same episode
* BattleCry: "Thunder... THUNDER... THUNDERCATS, HOOOOOOO!!!"
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlackSheep[=/=]WhiteSheep: Either way, Lion-O doesn't fit in with the royal family. He's simultaneously a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} techie in a family of ProudWarriorRaceGuys and the WideEyedIdealist in a family of [[AnimalJingoism Animal Jingoist]] [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racists]].
* BodyguardCrush[=/=]HotForPreacher: Lion-O has an obvious crush on Cheetara, his ChurchMilitant PraetorianGuard.
* BullyHunter: Gradually becomes this, as he goes from incidentally fighting bullies in his hometown to actively asserting that predatory antagonists, like the Duelist, need to be taken down a peg.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull:
** His BattleCry of "Thunder... THUNDER... THUNDERCATS, HOOOOOOO!!!" causes his Sword Of Omens to transform and turn from [[RetractableWeapon dagger to longsword]] unlocking its [[SwordBeam full combat potential]], and projecting a BatSignal of his [[IconicLogo royal emblem]] to summon allies.
** The command "Sword of Omens, give me [[{{Seers}} Sight Beyond Sight]]!" allows Lion-O to use the sword's PsychicPowers.
* CatchPhrase[=/=]ThisIsGonnaSuck[=/=]UnusualEuphemism: "Whiskers," Lion-O's signature OncePerEpisode phrase, quite possibly the least threatening curse ever.
* CategoryTraitor: Lion-O's defense of the stockaded Lizard slaves and attempt at ShamingTheMob harassing them backfires spectacularly, stirring up the PowderkegCrowd into demanding a full blown PublicExecution and turning their TorchesAndPitchforks on ''him,'' calling him "[[FantasticSlur Lizard lover]]" and threatening to put him in the stocks themselves. Yes, everyone ''hates'' their crown prince and future king.
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler: After returning from death in "The Trials of Lion-O".]] He actually ''scares'' [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra!]]
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Lion-O feels doubtful and insecure in his leadership from time to time, once wondering aloud "Maybe the sword chose wrong."
* CharacterDevelopment: Shortsighted and prone to alternately HotBlooded and well-meant impulsive decisions, Lion-O gradually learns through several missteps how to take a longer view and think before he acts. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when, atypically, he realizes a tactical error mere seconds after he's made it, firing a grapple at an ''angry'' GiantFlyer:
-->'''Lion-O''': *as he realizes he'll be dragged skyward* Maybe this is a bad ide-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
** He later demonstrates long-term planning skills and more abstract thought while searching for the hidden Spirit Stone.
** From "The Trials of Lion-O: Part 2" on he is far more mature and even-tempered, and makes full use of his tools and abilities.
* ChekhovsSkill: Lion-O's much-ridiculed intense study of technology finally pays off when he figures out the user interface of a BlackBox that he later [[spoiler: uses to blow up a war mech]]
* AChildShallLeadThem: Lion-O is still young, and very green in his kingship.
* TheChosenOne: During a RiteOfPassage, the Sword of Omens granted Lion-O a vision of the future, [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield choosing him]] as the next king.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His reputation among the Thunderians prior to Thundera's fall. Grune [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it, saying he "still [has] his head in the clouds." while Tygra has harsher words:
--> '''Tygra''': That's your problem. You look at Lizards and see victims. You look at junk and see mythical tech.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Actively seeks out LostTechnology, even if he has to turn to a FriendInTheBlackMarket to get it.
* CoolSword: The Sword of Omens, naturally.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Not that Lion-O feels much like gloating, since confirmation of LostTechnology's existence comes at a price, when the Lizards use it to destroy his kingdom. He even gets redeemed for his defense of the Lizards when one of them [[AndroclesLion repays the favor]]. [[spoiler:and slips him the key to his cell]].
* CulturalRebel: Who needs to learn about how CatsAreSuperior or MightMakesRight when there are machines to tinker with? And it actually seems wrong that those Alley Cats are beating up that Dog...
* DeadpanSnarker: He can get pretty snarky and often matches Tygra wit-for-wit. Most of his lines in "Legacy" are wry observations on the situation.
* {{Determinator}}: Lion-O doesn't give up easily, which has both gotten him into trouble, and out of it.
* [[spoiler:DidNotGetTheGirl[=/=]HopelessSuitor]]: [[spoiler: For Cheetara.]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: Lion-O holds his father while he dies. [[spoiler: And his friend Emrick, in the palms of his hands]].
* DontCallMeSir: [[spoiler:After saving Pumyra's life in the mines, he asks her to call him "Lion-O" and not "Your Majesty."]]
* TheEmperor[=/=]TheGoodKing: King of Thundera, and Lord of the Thundercats, [[VestigialEmpire for what it's worth]]...
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Lion-O is introduced [[KingIncognito sneaking]] cloaked and [[InTheHood hooded]] into the [[TheCityNarrows worst part]] of Thundera's slums, only to catch the eye of a gang of "Alley Cat" muggers who've just finished beating a hapless [[{{Dogfaces}} Dog]]. He manages to [[MuggingTheMonster fight most off]] but has to be bailed out by Cheetara, to whom he reveals his reasons for being there: to find rare and obscure pieces of "[[LostTechnology technology]]," which everyone else believes to be a myth.
* EveryDeviceIsASwissArmyKnife: Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet does quadruple duty as scabbard, gauntlet, grappling hook, and buckler.
** Adding the various power stones can upgrade it into armor.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}} and overestimation of his skills gets him into trouble, he also struggles with self-doubt.
** It's actually discussed in "The Trials of Lion-O." [[spoiler: The whole prologue of the episode was Lion-O trying to prove to everyone that he's right and everyone should follow him. It leads to his DisneyDeath. During the actual trials, Lion-O fails to defeat Trial!Tygra, who mentions that deep down, Lion-O didn't believe that he'd be a worthy ruler.]]
* FatherIDontWantToFight: ...Lizards my people have spent generations oppressing and enslaving.
* FieryRedhead
* FriendOrIdolDecision: In "Birth of the Blades," Lion-O is faced with a SadisticChoice: Save Pumyra from falling to her death, or grab the Sword of Plun-Darr before Mumm-Ra can? [[spoiler: He chooses to save Pumyra, earning her gratitude and UndyingLoyalty.]]
* GenreBlindness: Lion-O sees a [[{{Precognition}} vision]] in the magic Sword of ''Omens,'' and CannotSpitItOut, preferring to lie and claim he was [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]] by two passing girls, since he assumes his father will think him a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} if he speaks up. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since Lion-O is selectively CultureBlind, neglecting his royal duties in favor of collecting and studying LostTechnology, a ''ridiculous'' hobby in a Magical Kingdom.
* GreaterNeedThanMine: Lion-O will help others at great personal cost, this is what earns him [[spoiler: Pumyra's UndyingLoyalty in "Birth of the Blades" as he continues to fight for her even after she loses the Sword of Plundarr.]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: The Claw Gauntlet can fire the four fingers as anchors to surfaces.
* GrewASpine: Though a CulturalRebel, Lion-O was reluctant to share his radicalism with anyone but Snarf, and exploits his image as a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} to avoid disclosing a vision he saw in the Sword of Omens. But after hearing that "Sight is useless without action," from Jaga, he makes a SuddenPrincipledStand, faces down an AngryMob and convinces his father to [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege pardon two Lizard prisoners]].
* TheHeart: Arguably to all of ''Thundera''. Lion-O immediately steps up to defend anyone, regardless if they're seen as enemies or not, proclaiming, "No one deserves to be treated like that."
** He will also help anyone in need and expect nothing in return, it earns a lot of friends.
* TheHero
* HeroicSacrifice: One of his personality traits [[spoiler: and what earns him a second chance at life in "Trials Part 2"]]
** [[spoiler: It's what also changes Pumyra's opinion of him in "The Pit," he would rather die than hurt her or any of his subjects.]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity: The word "crazy" keeps popping up in discussions about what Thunderians think of Lion-O, to the point that he automatically anticipates this opinion from Cheetara.
** [[spoiler: Pumyra (and apparently the rest of the refugees) believe he abandoned them after the fall of Thundera.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HesBack: "The Trials of Lion-O: Part 2"
* HonorBeforeReason[=/=]TooDumbToLive: Lion-O suffers a fit of this while grieving for his father [[spoiler: and his friend Emrick]], invoking a recently-learned {{Aesop}} about living life fully to justify acting on his culture's (and inferentially, his father's) motto that "Thundercats never retreat." This leads him to impulsively [[LeeroyJenkins charge into]] a battle so one-sided his entire group would have died were it not for a DeusExMachina. Inverted when the Elephant Village gets taken hostage and opts for a stealth approach considering the hostage situation. Firmly averted after his Trials where he thinks ''before'' he acts and will sometimes allow things he doesn't like to happen if it means the success of the greater mission.
* HotBlooded: The destruction of Thundera and murder of his father has a negative effect on Lion-O's control of his emotions, naturally. As the series progresses he pretty much grows out of it.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Up until "Sight Beyond Sight" he has great difficulty using the titular ability. After learning to view "the big picture," as per instruction from various gurus, he gains perspective, and becomes more able to use the Sword of Omens' PsychicPowers.
* HumbleHero: This works both for and against him, as his humility gives him great compassion, but also undermines his confidence when he needs it most.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Spoken word-for-word in "The Pit" when trying to turn Pumyra.
* [[spoiler: IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Zig-Zagged, in "New Alliances" he tells Tygra and Cheetara that he knows about their relationship and he's happy for the both of them, but privately chews Cheetara out for (unintentionally) leading him on.]]
* IconicItem: The Sword of Omens
* IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance: While Lion-O is ''very'' right about the existence of LostTechnology, he initially dreamily romanticizes it, not realizing its potential as a ForgottenSuperweapon until witnessing the destruction first-hand. It's also quite jarring to his NobleBigot sensibilities when a Lizard informs him [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch His Species Doth Protest Too Much]].
* InTheHood: Lion-O travels TheCityNarrows of Thundera in a dark blue cloak.
* InadequateInheritor: Pretty much everyone agrees that Tygra would be a better king than Lion-O. He doesn't even get much praise from his father until right before his death.
* IndyPloy: He's getting very good at thinking on his feet and he pulls off a series of these in "Birth of the Blades."
* InstantExpert: Despite only tinkering and playing with mostly broken and non-functional trinkets, Lion-O is remarkably quick to pick up the workings of technology, and has no trouble at all sailing two hi-tech airships.
* {{Jerkass}}: For all of one episode due to his rage and hate blinding him to everything else. He gets better at the end.
** TookALevelInJerkass: After "Between Brothers" through the end of "The Trials of Lion-O" due to [[DidNotGetTheGirl not getting the girl]].
* KidHero: At [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8539085553/thanks-for-the-follow-ive-been-a-tcats-fan-for seventeen]], he's the youngest of his fellow nobles. Panthro dryly [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] their lack of "adult supervision" before his arrival.
* KidSamurai[=/=]YoungGun: In the CattlePunk[=/=]''{{Wutai}}'' Swordsmans' Town, Lion-O is swiftly pegged as this by the Drifter, who [[AdventureRebuff warns him off]], and the Duelist, who [[ExploitedTrope exploits]] Lion-O's naiveté for all it's worth, goading him into a ShowdownAtHighNoon.
* KindheartedCatLover: Or... ''whatever'' his pet Snarf is. Anyway, he loves him.
* KingIncognito: Lion-O has a habit of walking the slums disguised as a peasant.
* LastOfHisKind: Lion-O is the last of the Lions, the Cats who constitute Thundera's royal bloodline.
* TheLeader: Of his Thundercats, much to Tygra's chagrin and Panthro's irritation (though Panthro does warm up)
* LeeroyJenkins: Unlike many here, a genuine flaw of the HotBlooded young Lion-O, which Panthro has very little patience for.
* LonelyRichKid: Despite being the prince, so far Lion-O's childhood looks like it may have been a pretty lonely one.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet serves as a buckler, in a pinch.
* AManIsAlwaysEager: He has ''no'' problem using his ancestor's relationship with fellow rebellion leader Panthera to score a makeout session [[spoiler: right before Mumm-Ra's ship crashes in his vision of the past]]
-->'''Lion-O:''' I am so dead... But at least I have a girlfriend!
** Subverted later with Pumyra, when she starts flirting with him he just looks confused and vaguely disturbed, probably because he has been burned in the past, but also because she tried to ''kill him'' only a few hours earlier.
* MissingMom: Lion-O's mother is nowhere to be seen. [[spoiler: This is because of her DeathByChildbirth, as revealed in "Native Son".]]
* MultiethnicName: The "-O" suffix seems to be a reference to the "ō" in Japanese names and titles meaning "king."
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: After listening to a Lizard explain how the Cats' oppression gives him few options in life, Lion-O is much less enthusiastic about his culture's endorsement of MightMakesRight or FantasticRacism.
* NamedWeapons: The Sword of Omens
* NiceGuy: You could count the number of ''beings'' in the series who are half as decent as him.
* NobleBigot: Begins as a [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racist]], shooing ProducePelting kids away from the stockades, but presuming the Lizards therein are otherwise entirely deserving of punishment... until they proceed to [[CantArgueWithElves argue]] the point.
* NobleFugitive: Breaking out of dungeons, running to {{MacGuffin}}s, away from the Lizards.
* NobodyCallsMeChicken: Appeals to courage or implications of cowardice are a sore point with Lion-O, culturally and personally, especially if his conduct is compared to his father.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, a family trait he shares with his father, and part of the AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance that marks him as able to use the Sword of Omens' "Sight Beyond Sight".
* PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: Lion-O's voice gets deeper whenever he uses the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sword of Omens]] and [[ByThePowerOfGrayskull shouts "ThunderCats, ho!"]]
* AProtagonistShallLeadThem: "For [[BecauseDestinySaysSo it was written]] that he would be born of fire, a king to lead his people to victory against ancient spirits of evil."
* RebelPrince: [[ReconstructedTrope Reconstructed]]. It's made patently obvious early on that Lion-O ''really'' doesn't want to be king, but cannot pass it to anyone else as he was chosen by the Sword of Omens. It is the act of rebelling against his princely responsibilities that has put Lion-O in touch with the common slum-dwellers and Specific minorities, and connected him with LostTechnology, making him Thundera's WisePrince.
* RedHeadedHero
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Lion-O wears a much less elaborate version of the [[TwentyFourHourArmor cuirass]] and [[ChestInsignia belt-mounted]] cabochon sported by his father.
* TheResenter: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Lion-O is the hero of the narrative, but not of Thundera's people. ''They'' adore Tygra, and think of him as their ideal leader, while Lion-O is TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone. Lion-O ''loathes'' this state of affairs.
-->'''Lion-O''' (in SarcasmMode): You're just so perfect, aren't you, Tygra?
-->'''Tygra''': Why, thank you, Lion-O!
* RetractableWeapon: The Sword of Omens retracts to dagger length for stowing inside it's scabbard, Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet. It extends fully when Lion-O performs his ByThePowerOfGrayskull.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Hits this ''hard'' in "Ramlak Rising", choosing to disobey Jaga's demand that he find the Book of Omens in favor of hunting down Mumm-Ra, though his encounter with the similarly motivated Captain Tunar causes him to rethink his priorities.
* RoyalBlood: Lion-O is a Lion, which automatically confers the [[KingOfBeasts right to rule]].
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Initially [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], as Lion-O's hobbies, opinions and jaunts to the slums are seen as ''evidence'' that he's TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone. Lion-O's [[ZombieAdvocate Lizard advocacy]] even causes Claudus to label him an UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom when the Lizards invade, ''denying'' him the chance to join Claudus and Tygra on the battlefield. Then Lion-O takes matters [[ReconstructedTrope into his own hands]].
* {{Seer}}: As TheChosenOne, only Lion-O can use the Sword of Omens' "Sight Beyond Sight" to see visions of the future, hidden or far off objects, or metaphysical locations.
* ShonenHair
* SkilledButNaive[=/=]UnskilledButStrong: Lion-O's weakness in technique with the Sword of Omens is that he prefers a straightforward, purely offensive barrage that relies on momentum and power, very effective in a large battlefield melee, but useless when opponents have guile and space enough to maneuver. The Drifter notes this, and instructs him in defensive evasion. This improves his technique greatly, but later episodes show that he can still be overpowered by opponents who are just plain physically stronger than him.
* StillTheLeader: Initially did not take Panthro's assertive BaldBlackLeaderGuy role well, despite being out of his depth during their shared mission. In a fit of pique, Lion-O pulled a LeeroyJenkins that required Panthro's intervention, but Lion-O soon earned his respect and deference when he proved an effective wielder of the Sword of Omens. He also has to deal with Tygra constantly questioning and criticizing his decisions, even after he starts making decent ones.
* SurrogateSoliloquy: Lion-O makes a habit of using his EmpathyPet Snarf as a [[TheConfidant sounding-board]] for his thoughts.
* TookALevelInBadass: The point of the Trials, not only to test his skills, but to force him to confront things about himself he doesn't like and hold him back.
* TheUnfavourite: His father much prefers his adoptive older brother Tygra.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Lion-O gets accused of this when the Lizards invade, with Claudus convinced that the Lizard invasion was accelerated by a show of weakness when they pardoned the Lizard scavengers. He's sidelined, forbidden to join Tygra and Claudus on the battlefield.
* WarriorPrince: Even before his kingship, could hold his own as a BareFistedMonk.
* WholeCostumeReference: To the original, with some tweaks.
* WideEyedIdealist
* TheWisePrince: In stark contrast to his 80's IdiotHero counterpart, Lion-O is very much a "bigger picture" kind of guy and rather than destroying his enemies would rather [[DefeatMeansFriendship convert them to his side]]. However he does have his moments [[KidHero due to inexperience.]] This is more pronounced after his trials where he is more mature and level-headed, and sticks to his principles like glue.
* WouldHitAGirl: He decked a female {{catfolk}} mugger right in the face without a blink in the slums. In Thundera, strength matters above all else.
** Subverted in his fight with Pumyra, but had nothing to do with her being a girl, he won't fight another cat pure and simple.
* TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone: So universally held is this opinion that Lion-O gets to hear from both Grune and Tygra how good a king Tygra would be, with Tygra outright claiming (only as a ''joke,'' of course) that he'd be better than Lion-O. It's so blatant even his father comes to his defense. He even worries about this himself, once pondering "Maybe the sword chose wrong..."
** Lion-O's subconscious belief that this is true is so strong that he [[spoiler:(supposedly) fails the Spirit Stone's trials in "The Trials of Lion-O".]]
* YouAreWorthHell:[[spoiler: In "The Trials of Lion-O", he failed against Tygra and so would die. To go save his comrades, he offers up his soul to be given until sun rise to save them knowing his soul would be doomed to live in Limbo for all time.]]
** In "The Pit" [[spoiler: he takes a brutal beating from Pumyra and refuses to fight back to prove that he would never hurt her or any of his people.]]
* YoungestChildWins: Despite being the younger, it is Lion-O who is first in line for the throne, because he is of the Lion bloodline, and because he was chosen by the Sword of Omens.
* ZombieAdvocate: Lion-O defends Lizards from a VigilanteExecution by an AngryMob, which is seen as absurd by both the mob and his father.
** He does it again when he spares the rat Mordax from being killed by Pumyra.

!Tygra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_tygra_174x252_b_6165.png
-->''Voiced by: MatthewMercer''

Tygra is the adoptive brother of Lion-O and has an active SiblingRivalry against him, since he's often more skilled and resents his younger sibling's position as crown prince. He can be cocky and arrogant at times, and flirtatious as well.
----
!!Tropes associated with Tygra:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Acquires a set after the siege of Thundera.
* {{Adorkable}}: When he was younger, as revealed through a flashback to when he met Cheetara. He certainly wasn't as much of TheCharmer as he is now.
* AloofBigBrother: At his worst, Tygra expresses utter disdain for his brother's idealism and dabblings in LostTechnology. He softened on the latter when said technology was revealed to be real.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Tygra tries to be AlwaysSomeoneBetter because of a deep InferioritySuperiorityComplex, and an abiding suspicion that as a mere SpareToTheThrone, he will forever lose to Lion-O, a motivation underscored when Tygra bitterly rants about how Lion-O's taken away both his chance to wear the crown, and, he suspects, his chance to romance Cheetara, the LoveInterest of their SiblingTriangle.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Tygra actively [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this whenever able, out of a need to feel superior due to his [[TheResenter resentment]] at being out of the chain of succession. He loves to show up his younger brother, and makes a point of "jokingly" telling his father with Lion-O in earshot, "I just would have been a better [king]."
* BareFistedMonk: Is quite capable unarmed, soundly defeating his brother in Thundera's games.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Despite all this, when Lion-O is in real trouble, Tygra supports and fights with him.
* BigBrotherMentor: During shared reminiscences of their father Claudus, Tygra drops his usual resentful critiques when Lion-O expresses genuine [[TheChainsOfCommanding insecurities]] at leading, telling him to believe in himself. This moment of bonding is brief, and Tygra's back to needling him a short while later.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlueBlood
* BrokenAce: Tygra is better than Lion-O. At ''everything.'' He's older, more skilled at fighting, more knowlegeable in military tactics, more popular with their people, father's favorite, and TheDutifulSon, but to his great resentment, his flaky {{Cloudcuckoolander}} ''[[JustAKid kid]] [[TheLoad brother]]'' gets to be TheChosenOne and the king by dint of RoyalBlood alone, and even gets attention from Cheetara, whom Tygra has pined for from afar.
* BrownEyes: Prone to winking.
* TheCharmer: Tygra, who openly flirts with one of the clerics (actually Cheetara), during Lion-O's RiteOfPassage, to Lion-O's shock.
* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler: The reason why the Ancient Spirits of Evil chose him as a sacrifice is because he will be a thorn in their side.]]
* CompassionateCritic: Towards his brother Lion-O, frequently criticizing his many deficiencies and failure to conform to Thunderian culture and their father's expectations.
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDutifulSon: And he knows it.
* FirstGuyWins: [[spoiler: Cheetara chooses him, thus ending the LoveTriangle]].
* GreenEyedMonster: It's pretty obvious that he's extremely jealous of both his brother's position as leader, and Cheetara's apparent romantic interest in him.
* HappilyAdopted[=/=]SpareToTheThrone: Tygra is an adopted member of the royal family, and the beneficiary of Claudus' ParentalFavoritism. This development grew out of the original series' assertion that if anything should happen to Lion-O, Tygra would be next in line as ruler.
* HonorBeforeReason: "Thundercats never retreat!" Tygra complains when Lion-O orders him to do so. Later Lion-O takes the criticism to heart, getting them all into trouble.
* HotForPreacher: Tygra openly flirted with a Cleric in FullBodyDisguise. She turned out to be Cheetara, on whom he has a longstanding crush.
* HypocriticalHumor: May not have been intentional by the creators, but for someone whose refused to admit technology existed, having a blaster as a weapon is kind of funny.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He's a superb shot for having never seen anything like a gun before in his life. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since laser guns have no recoil, it's a matter of point-and-shoot.
* InstantExpert: After proclaiming technology a myth his entire life, he used a pistol for the first time during the invasion and now relies on it more than his whip.
* InvisibilityCloak: Tygra can become temporarily invisible with the aid of his whip.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Tygra loves to rub it in Lion-O's face that he's better then him "when it comes to everything except the crown," but his BigBrotherInstinct comes through in the clutch, and he plainly states "[[IGotYouCovered I've got his back]]." to an AngryMob Lion-O has challenged to GoThroughMe.
** The "gold" part is what allows Tygra to [[spoiler: win Cheetara's heart at the end.]]
* TheLancer: Argumentative, snarky second to Lion-O's leader.
* [[spoiler:LastOfHisKind]]: [[spoiler:As of "Native Son", he's the last of the Tiger clan.]]
* LoveHurts: The look on his face when [[spoiler:Cheetara kisses Lion-O on the cheek for luck]]. However, this later leads to...
* [[spoiler:LoveRedeems: And fulfills a prophecy of betrayal a few hours later, go figure.]]
* MissingMom:[[spoiler:In "Native Son" his adoptive mother died giving birth to Lion-O.]]
* MosesInTheBullrushes: He ended up in Thundera in a hot air balloon.
* MulticoloredHair: White, orange brown and black striped.
* NobleBigot: He's internalized his culture's FantasticRacism, since he is fairly dismissive of a Lizard prisoner's ScrewYouElves speech and sees little problem with the Lizards being lynched. Still, given the choice, he's willing to help his brother defend them. He's also readily amenable to taking on the Thunderkittens, who are of a [[FantasticCasteSystem lesser caste]] than he is.
* NobleFugitive: Like his brother, escaped the captivity of the Lizards.
* ParentalAbandonment: See MosesInTheBullrushes, MissingMom and [[spoiler:[[HumanSacrifice Tiger Sacrifice]]]]
* {{Pride}}: The recurring flaw in his clan's line.[[spoiler: Tygra's ability to be humble and forgive his father for all his actions saves both himself and his clan's souls.]]
* RayGun
* TheResenter: The driving force behind his SiblingRivalry with his brother is his resentment of Lion-O's right of succession by [[RoyalBlood bloodline]]. Adding fuel to the fire is their SiblingTriangle with Cheetara.
** [[spoiler:Tygra gets over it after Lion-O ''dies'' (he gets better) and he briefly becomes king. He's grief-stricken and regretful of his past resentment. When Lion-O returns Tygra immediately proclaims his UndyingLoyalty to him.]]
* TheRival: Quite naturally plays this role to his brother in the course of their SiblingRivalry, until throwing in with him when Lion-O faces down an AngryMob, at which point he becomes a particularly testy {{Lancer}}.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Can win sporting competitions, hold back {{Angry Mob}}s with his whip, and battle evil with the best of them.
* SarcasticDevotee: Often snarkily questions Lion-O's leadership.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. As a boy, he developed a habit of watching a young Cheetara from afar, too shy to strike up a conversation.
* [[SwordAndGun Whip And Gun]]
* ThrowTheDogABone: Tygra spends 13 episodes watching how his younger brother steals his thunder (Although to be fair, he gave as good as he got), his right to the throne and even the woman he has loved since he was a little boy. To twist the knife on the injury, Tygra cannot get himself to get rid of Lion-O, even if he gets two ''perfect'' chances to do it and continues supporting him out of loyalty and brotherly love. [[spoiler: Cheetara ends up chosing HIM instead of Lion-O. In fact, Cheetara had already chosen Tygra several years before Lion-O appeared, but never had the chance to confess that to him.]]
* [[spoiler:[[HumanSacrifice Tiger Sacrifice]]: His clan was plagued by a deadly, incurable disease. When his father asked the Ancient Spirits for help, Tygra was the price because of his destiny to become a Thundercat and fight them. His father could not kill him and sent Tygra away like MosesInTheBullrushes.]]
* TragicKeepsake:[[spoiler: His birth father's whip.]]
* TheUnchosenOne: He was passed over in favor of Lion-O as heir to the throne. Part of this is because despite being the elder he's adopted and thus not of the royal bloodline, but also because the Sword of Omens itself chose Lion-O, and he can't understand why.
* UndyingLoyalty: [[spoiler:To Lion-O as of "The Trials of Lion-O" part 2.]]
* [[spoiler:VictoriousChildhoodFriend: With Cheetara]]
* WarriorPrince: Is chosen over his brother to join his father on the battlefield during the siege of Thundera.
* WhipItGood: Tygra's WeaponOfChoice.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Takes out a Lizard mook in "Into the Astral Plane" by sneaking up behind him and then suplexing him.

!Panthro
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_panthro_174x252_b_8110.png
-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

Panthro is one of Claudus' most loyal soldiers. He was sent with his friend Grune to find the Book of Omens. [[spoiler:However, their attempted search resulted with Mumm-Ra's release from imprisonment.]] Though he questioned Lion-O's ability to lead, Panthro eventually accepted him as the new king.
----
!!Tropes associated with Panthro:
* AnArmAndALeg: Type 2. Panthro lost both of his arms, [[spoiler:to a PortalCut, intending to lay down his life while restraining Grune on the threshold of the collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Quite capably fells multiple Lizards in one blow. (and temporarily pulls rank on Lion-O for agitating these Lizards.)
* {{Badass}}: According to [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/117/1176532p1.html Michael Jelenic]]: Panthro is "a pretty cool character, just like on the old show." He repeatedly mows through multiple foes with ease, whether in his personal tank, or toe-to-toe against a group of lizards while armed with only one ''nunchaku.''
* BadassDriver: Of his Thundertank. He's even up for the occassional game of chicken.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: Plays this straight when he initially joins the Thundercats, insistant that they prove their worth, no matter how much Lion-O objects.
* BaldOfAwesome: Done to [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/9265237591/ok-this-must-be-asked-panthro-why-the-mutton-chops evoke]] the ''sakayaki'' tonsure of an old {{Samurai}}, complete with topknot.
* TheBigGuy: Class 1 and 5, A gruff OldSoldier who's a GeniusBruiser. "I [[LampshadeHanging thought]] he'd be smaller..." notes an intimidated Lion-O.
* BrownEyes
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Panthro gradually [[DefrostingIceKing warms up to]] the Ro-Bear Berbils. When he openly hugs his new friend Ro-Bear Bill, and is witnessed by the team's {{Tagalong Kid}}s, this exchange occurs:
--> '''Wilykat:''' Busted!
--> '''Wilykit:''' Panthro's a big ol' softy!
--> '''Panthro:''' *DeathGlare* Is that a ''problem?''
--> '''Wilykit:''' *stiffens nervously* Nope.
--> '''Wilykat:''' It's cool.
* TheCaptain: A [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] element of his {{backstory}}, seen as a stepping stone on his way to becoming a general.
* ChekhovMIA: Considering his presence in the promotional material and the lying, teasing showrunners, this is no great surprise.
* CoveredWithScars: He has a ''ton'' of scars, presumably from a life of fighting for Thundera.
* DefrostingIceKing: Upon meeting the Ro-Bear Berbils, Panthro immediately announces that he doesn't trust anything this adorable. He is deeply flustered when they heap praise and affection on him after he saves the life of Ro-Bear Bill. When the Berbils show thanks for his help by replacing the Thundertank's engine? Panthro bursts into ManlyTears.
* [[spoiler:DisneyVillainDeath[=/=]NeverFoundTheBody[=/=]NoOneCouldSurviveThat]]
* [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness Dull Eye of Unhappiness]]: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as Panthro has suffered an injury to his right eye, severe enough to [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/9608528030/why-did-you-guys-choose-to-make-pantho-blind-of-one-eye cause glaucoma]] and scar the surrounding flesh.
* EveryScarHasAStory: Panthro [[DiscussedTrope comments]] that there was "a lot of history" in the scars on his arms, which is what he misses the most after [[AnArmAndALeg sacrificing them]] [[spoiler:to trap Grune inside the collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: Thundera is in MedievalStasis and full of SpaceRomans, so why does Panthro sport a {{Samurai}}'s ''sakayaki'' and ''chonmage''? [[RuleOfCool Because he's cool]], that's why.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a furry [[Anime/CowboyBebop Jet.]]
* EyepatchOfPower: Notably [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], Panthro's scarred and damaged eye is unconcealed, but still marks him as a seasoned veteran and {{Badass}}.
* EyesAreUnbreakable: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]: The scar that goes across his eye clearly caused ''some'' damage, as the iris is dull and matte, with no pupil.
* FantasticCasteSystem: A {{flashback}} to his youth shows he used to have a tail, marking him as lower-class, but he is now InexplicablyTailless.
* FightingWithChucks: With sculpted cat claws on the outer end of each stick.
* FourStarBadass: One of Claudus' most trusted generals.
* FurryBaldness: The "baldness" is his grey-blue base coat, while his remaining "hair" is black.
* GeniusBruiser: The real techy of the bunch, a tank who owns and maintains a tank.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Panthro's are typically heroic, relatively neat diagonal slashes: a small "x" mark on the left shoulder, a large gash on the right, and a huge slash across his right pectoral. The vertical scar on his right eye, while neat and aesthetic, is atypical in that it ''doesn't'' leave his eye undamaged.
* HandicappedBadass: His nasty glaucoma doesn't seem to stop him. [[spoiler:Or his lack of arms. One wonders how he plans to drive now, though.]]
** Preview images of upcoming toys suggest [[spoiler:he will be getting a set of cyborg arms]].
* HeroicBuild: Wouldn't be TheBigGuy without it
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With [[EvilFormerFriend Grune]], in {{Flashback}}s. It ended badly.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Young Panthro, your best friend Grune's frequent asides about how the both of you are going to run Thundera someday are not the examples of jocular hyperbole you seem to think they are.
* HotbloodedSideburns: A most prodigious set.
* InexplicablyTailless: In youth he had a tail, but now he doesn't. No word yet as to why, but much [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse speculation]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Developing with his much younger teammates
* KnightInSourArmor[=/=]SourSupporter: Very much a cynic, compared to his youngers, but still joins in the fight.
* MismatchedEyes: Panthro's injured eye is depicted as ranging from a pale brown to pale red in color, in comparison to the deep brown of the uninjured one.
* MythologyGag: His younger self looks almost exactly like his 80's character design (minus the tail, of course.)
* OldSoldier
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: Quite literally, as Grune liberally lathered the DeathNotification with vague {{Half Truth}}s to mask his own betrayal. Also applies [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8539085553/thanks-for-the-follow-ive-been-a-tcats-fan-for out-of-universe]], thanks to blatantly {{Lying Creator}}s.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Sacrifices [[spoiler:both his arms]] to defeat Grune. Damn, man!
* ScarsAreForever: Panthro's racked up a few, all noticeably paler than his fur.
* ScaryBlackMan: Initially for the other Thundercats.
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: He was completely absent from all the official and unofficial trailers. His first proper appearance is saved for the final moments of "Song of The Petalars."
* TheSixthRanger
* SlasherSmile: Gets one of these when he goes head to head with the Conqedor's vehicle, wanting to test out what his new and improved Thundertank is really capable of.
* TheSmartGuy: He's one of the few Thunderians who has a functional knowledge of technology and knows how to operate and repair many different kinds of devices.
* SpikesOfVillainy: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]], Panthro is heroic, but the intimidation factor is there. A nervous Cheetara says "I [[LampshadeHanging thought]] he'd be less spiky."
* [[spoiler:SuperDrowningSkills: He can't swim, though it works to his advantage when he finds an exit hatch after sinking to the bottom of a water-filled chamber.]]
* TankGoodness: Owner and pilot of the Thunder Tank
* TeamDad
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Now if only Lion-O or Tygra (or Cheetara) would follow his lead...
* WartsAndAll: The Thundercats must square with the idea that Panthro is a cynic and a SourSupporter who considers them a RagtagBunchOfMisfits, from whom ''he'' demands respect rather than being automatically loyal to ''them.''
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In a TempleOfDoom Panthro is visibly freaked out when a DeathTrap chamber they're in starts [[spoiler:filling with water, because he can't swim.]]
* XMarksTheHero: One of Panthro's many scars is an x on his left shoulder.

!Cheetara
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cheet_1546.png
-->''Voiced by: EmmanuelleChriqui''

Cheetara is one of Jaga's Clerics. As a Cleric, she's gifted with SuperSpeed. She wields a staff in battle, but is also adept at fighting unarmed.
----
!!Tropes associated with Cheetara:
* ActionGirl
* {{Badass}}: Even more than Lion-O and Tygra.
* BareYourMidriff: Thank-you!
* BoobsOfSteel: being the only adult female in the group.
* TheChampion: Sticks up for Lion-O for ill (defending his brash tactics) and for good (demanding that others be patient and have faith in his potential)
* TheChick: Though a LightningBruiser PraetorianGuard, Cheetara plays the role of "spiritual female peacekeeper" straight as both ''[[GoodShepherd an actual priest]]'' and the group's conflict mediator. Though much of this consists of [[TheChampion championing]] Lion-O, she also occasionally sides with Tygra, once joining him in trying to talk Lion-O down from a vengeful rage, and in another instance, explaining to Lion-O why Tygra is TheResenter.
* ChurchMilitant: A member of Jaga's [[TheOrder Clerics]] - [[PraetorianGuard the Guardians of the Crown]].
* TheEmpath: Cheetara is able to discern presence and the mood of spirits inhabiting the forest of Magi Oar.
* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]]: Cheetara has a tendency to not use her SuperSpeed or Magic Staff's powers, which could allow her to instantly win most fights.
* GoodShepherd: Often serves as Lion-O's counselor
* TheHeart: Motherly and kind, never losing her cool or compassion.
* HotAmazon: She's badass and Lion-O and Tygra have no problem with that.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: [[spoiler: Throughout the first 13 episodes, she unintentionally sends the wrong signals to Lion-O, which both he and Tygra interprets as Cheetara having feelings for him.]]
* IdiotHair: Averted, she has a bit of a cowlick but is otherwise intelligent, save for her [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]] moments.
* IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance[=/=]UnreliableNarrator: As a Cleric, she explains the history of the Book of Omens and the reasons for its being secreted away. Though its clearly what she's been told, it turns out to be fairly inaccurate, as much from poor understanding of the past as her Order's secretive nature.
* KingIncognito: Or rather PraetorianGuard Incognito. In a reversal of Lion-O's circumstances, all she need do is ''remove'' her Cleric's uniform to dutifully shadow the wandering Lion-O without his knowing.
* LadyOfWar
* LastOfHerKind: The SoleSurvivor of her [[TheOrder order]].
* LightningBruiser: She's a better fighter than both Tygra and Lion-O, with the bonus of SuperSpeed.
* LovedINotHonorMore: [[spoiler: She loves Tygra, but for the first thirteen episodes she did not act on her feelings instead preforming her duties as a Cleric to be Lion-O's [[GoodShepherd adviser]], [[PraetorianGuard guard]], and [[UndyingLoyalty loyal supporter]]. Unfortunately this leads to Lion-O thinking she has a BodyguardCrush on him.]]
* [[FriendOrIdolDecision Love or King Decision]]: She had to make a choice between helping Lion-O fight [[spoiler:against Slithe and Addicus while Kanar held Tygra hostage and ready to kill him or surrender, which means they would all likely die. She picks Tygra and throws down her weapon.]]
* MagicKnight: According to her character page on the official website, Jaga's training has made her just as adept at magic as she is at combat.
* MagicStaff: Her new weapon, courtesy of [[spoiler:Viragor]]. Couple this with the above trope and she is bound to be [[RuleOfCool an even more amazing combatant]].
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Towards Lion-O, fueling his crush. [[spoiler: which Lion-O calls her out on. AND she continues doing it after she gets with Tygra.]]
* MementoMacGuffin: The flower she got from Tygra when she was just a little girl and ''still'' carries around. The flower is actually plot and character important, however, as it is revealed that Tygra's act of kindness (without mentioning the nutritive value of the flower's petals) allowed Cheetara to endure her test of patience and ultimately become the woman she is now. [[spoiler: And of course, this is what made Cheetara choose Tygra over Lion-O from the beginning.]]
* MrExposition: When Jaga's unavailable, Cheetara explains things to her fellow Thundercats.
* MsFanservice: Her model sheets show that her top ''does'' zip up all the way to her neck, she just doesn't bother to do it. You baaaaad kitty.
** She also gets a little bit of MaleGaze (though only with the camera so far).
** Doesn't hurt that she's voiced by a very deserving [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuelle_Chriqui former AskMen.com Most Desirable Woman]].
* MulticoloredHair: A PowerBlonde with dark brown spotting.
* MysteriousProtector: To Lion-O, quietly shadowing him as he sneaks off to Thundera's slums, stepping in only when he's headlocked by one more mugger than he can handle, and popping up again when he needs help against an AngryMob.
* ObliviousToLove: If she knows about either of the brothers' feelings, (or their [[SiblingTriangle active conflict]]) she ain't saying. [[spoiler:In Episode 13, it's revealed that she returns Tygra's feelings, but never had the chance to tell him until now.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: One of the reasons she became a Cleric is because she had no family to turn to.
* {{Protectorate}}: Lion-O, naturally.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], Cheetara is established good from the start, despite her eye color.
* RetractableWeapon: Cheetara's SimpleStaff retracts for easy storage.
* SexyMentor: Lion-O's mind tends to be... ''elsewhere'' when Cheetara is providing guidance.
* SexyPriest: Tygra even [[TheCharmer tips her a wink]] when she's sporting her vestments, a FullBodyDisguise that leaves only her ''eyes'' visible. [[JustifiedTrope Justified because Tygra probably knew it was Cheetara based solely on her eyes.]]
* ShonenUpgrade: After her [[WeaponOfChoice staff]] gets broken, she receives a replacement made from the wood of a magical forest.
* SimpleStaff: Her weapon, along with her fellow Clerics.
* StatuesqueStunner: Consistently shown to be ''taller'' than Lion-O '''and''' Tygra, and until Panthro joined she was ''the'' tallest member of the Pride.
* SuperReflexes: Part of her SuperSpeed. Cheetara uses it to get through a room of whirling blades in a TempleOfDoom.
* SuperSpeed: And apparently, without the handicap of the original Cheetara. Prone to ForgotAboutHisPowers though.
* TeamMom: Yeah, still.
* UndyingLoyalty: So far, she is the only Thundercat to have complete faith in Lion-O. [[spoiler: It shows when her eyes glow when Lion-O calls "THUNDERCATS HOOOO!"]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Her Cleric's SimpleStaff. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when it gets broken: "I ''loved'' that staff!" Later gets a MagicStaff.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Lion-O delivers one to her in "New Alliances" for (albeit unintentionally) leading him on.]]
* WreckedWeapon: Loses her Cleric's staff when it breaks in the jaws of Viragor.

!The Thunderkittens
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wily_130.png
-->''Voiced by: Madeleine Hall (Wilykit) and Eamon Pirruccello (Wilykat)''

The Thunderkittens Wilykit and Wilykat start out as homeless pickpockets and beggars living in the slums. After the destruction of Thundera leaves them with nowhere else to go, they elect to tag along with Lion-O's party, for better or for worse.
----
!!Tropes associated with the Thunderkittens:
* TheArtfulDodger: Though they both dream of wealth and comfort, they're generally remarkably good at surviving Thundera's slums with a cheerful outlook and an arsenal of tricks.
* BadassAdorable: Amongst their feats, the Thunderkittens have outwitted a [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giant]] by dosing themselves with a fruit that induces CaffeineBulletTime and leading him straight into carefully laid tripwire.
* BareYourMidriff: Wilykit. Since her age is in the single digits, the usual FanService is ([[LolitaComplex hopefully]]) averted.
* BigEater: They can eat a LOT.
* BrotherSisterTeam
* CatSmile: Other than Snarf they're the only ones who do it.
* [[CheerfulChild Cheerful Children]]: They're remarkably optimistic, despite having grown up in the slums of TheEmpire.
* CuteKitten[=/=]DeliberatelyCuteChild: They purposely [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this to convince Lion-O to take them along, CatSmile, FauxPaw and cute meowing included. In general, they overplay their cuteness to manipulate others.
* DelinquentHair: Wilykit's purple SkunkStripe
* EarsAsHair: By WordOfGod, most of what was previously believed to be their hair is, in fact, ''[[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8435103220/i-first-saw-thundercats-on-toonami-when-i-was-young their ears]]''. Yes, this means that Wilykit [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wileykitears_1440.jpg ties hers back]].
* FantasticCasteSystem: WordOfGod [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8435103220/i-first-saw-thundercats-on-toonami-when-i-was-young states]] there are two types of cat-people in Thundera, those who don't have tails and those who do. Those who don't are Thundera's elite, those who do are consigned to poverty. The Thunderkittens, having tails, are introduced as {{Artful Dodger}}s in Thundera's slums.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Wilykit's outfit lacks a sleeve, and both twins wear only one...
* [[FingerlessGloves Fingerless Glove]]
* FiveFingerDiscount: How the twins survive in the slums.
* GenreSavvy:
** Employ ObfuscatingStupidity against a [[{{Fishmen}} Fish Man]] who plans to eat them, just so they can get a free meal while he "stuffs" them.
** Also, when the Thundercats were facing a BoobyTrap [[SpikesOfDoom spike pit]] already triggered by using [[NeedleInAStackOfNeedles a wrong key]] in a LockAndKeyPuzzle, they shrugged off the problem and, StatingTheSimpleSolution, [[spoiler:opened the door by ''picking the lock.'']]
* GrapplingHookPistol[=/=]RazorFloss[=/=]VariableLengthChain: Wilykat has a primative version of a grappling hook pistol in his flink, a thin cord with a small grapple on the end, attached to a reel.
* HazelEyes
* HoverBoard: The kittens are eventually given a pair by the Ro-Bear Berbils.
* IdiotBall: Normally WiseBeyondTheirYears, GenreSavvy Kit [[spoiler: ruins the Thundercats' ambush to save the Elephants by yelling at the bad guys to [[WhatAnIdiot leave them alone.]]]]
* IdiotHair: Wilykat has a high-standing forelock
* InfantImmortality: They start the series by being two of the few survivors of Thundera, right after an emergency shelter was destroyed, killing everyone inside.
* KidAppealCharacter: A combination of types 1 and 3, Clowns and Ankle-biters. As {{Artful Dodger}}s, teasing, trickery, pranks and theft are their forms of attack.
* LittleMissConArtist: Wilykit, in her role as a ...
* MagicalFlautist: Posing as an innocuous StreetMusician, Wilykit uses her flute music to put people [[MagicMusic into a trance]] while her brother steals from them.
* MulticoloredHair: Wilykat's is white and light brown with a dark brown [[IdiotHair high forelock]]. Wilykit's is red with a purple SkunkStripe.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Dressed in beggars' rags, the Thunderkittens must steal new clothes from some pillaging Lizards, which are modeled after their original series' outfits.
* NonIdenticalTwins: Avoid being HalfIdenticalTwins purely through their different coloring and slightly different builds.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: They're well aware that the Fish Man cook was stuffing them to later kill and cook them, they were just playing dumb to get a good meal out of it before making their escape.
* PluckyComicRelief: Share this role with Snarf.
* TheRunaway: a particular case in that the two kittens had a loving family. [[spoiler:They left their home because their mother hadn't enough food for everyone, which included two other unnamed siblings, after the father's death.]]
* TheRoper: Wilykat flags down [[TheMark marks]] to pitch his sister's music to.
* StickyFingers: They may usually be GenreSavvy, but when they see [[SchmuckBait gold]] in a TempleOfDoom, they just can't help themselves.
* StreetMusician[=/=]WanderingMinstrel: Outside of her con-artistry, Wilykit is perfectly adept at playing her flute recreationally, amusing herself in Thundera's ruins and "playing off" the Petalars as they bid the Thundercats a happy goodbye.
* {{Street Urchin}}s: Rudely referred to as such by a LowerclassLout they promptly rob blind. In their less savvy days, they did indeed fit the description.
* TagalongKid: Both of them.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Of the one-letter difference variety.
* TomboyishPonytail: Wilykit, to go along with her tomboyish voice.
* TreasureMap: The twins are looking for a map to [[CityOfGold El Dara, a city full of treasure]].
* TricksterTwins: Experienced shysters both.
* UndyingLoyalty: Kit is extremely loyal to Lion-o to the point of refusing to believe he was truly gone.
* YouLeaveHimAlone: Wilykit - "No one touches my friend!"
* WeaponOfChoice: Wilykit has her flute, Wilykat his flink
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: When sugar-high. It makes them look positively manic.
* {{Xenophone}}: Wilykit's flute is a white ring-shaped device.

!Pumyra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pumyra_6163.jpg
-->''Voiced by: Pamela Adlon''
A refugee forced to fight as a gladiator in a city of dogs. She is initially very hostile towards Lion-O but is slowly warming up to him.
----
!!Tropes associated with Pumyra:
* ActionGirl
* TheArcher: Wears a wrist-mounted, collapsible crossbow from which she fires small pellets with incredible accuracy, and enough force to push back an opponent when [[MultiShot fired in a barrage]].
* AscendedExtra: One of the least-developed characters in the old show, the producers have confirmed that she plays a bigger part this time and has multiple episodes written around her.
* BigOlEyebrows: They actually wrap around her face and connect to her facial markings to form...
** HotBloodedSideburns
* BrokenBird: Has some shades of this, if her initial reaction to Lion-O in "The Pit" and her rage at her former captors in "The Curse of Ratilla" is anything to go by. Subverted, however, in that she seems to be getting better through her interactions with Lion-O.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: She gets Lion-O captured when he tries to sneak her out because she (loudly) insists he get away from her.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Inverted. ''She's'' the one who defeats Lion-O, but he wins her over specifically because he refused to fight against his own kind.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: More than the other cats, anyway. She doesn't even wear the spat-like thingies other cats have.
** FootFocus: Twice in as many episodes they've included close-ups of her ankles.
* EraSpecificPersonality: Her 80's incarnation was a TechnicalPacifist and much more of a FlatCharacter compared to the other 'Cats. [[HotBlooded This]] [[TheArcher version]] [[RevengeBeforeReason of]] [[BrokenBird her]], well... not so much.
* HotBlooded: She's taken over this role from Lion-O.
* ImprobableAimingSkills
* MadeASlave: She started out in Ratar-O's mining pit, but was eventually sold as a fighter for the Pit.
* TheMedic: She's seen tending to Lion-O's wounds after they're freed. Granted, she ''inflicted'' those wounds...
* MiniDressOfPower
* MsFanservice: Much more fanservicey than her 80's counterpart.
* MultiShot.
* NeverMyFault: She has a bad tendency to blame Lion-O for ''everything'', including things that actually her fault. The end of "Birth of Blades" suggests she may be aware of this and get better.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Her resentment-induced rage toward Lion-O alerts the guards and gets them both roped into a death match when she could have escaped with him, and ''then'' she berates him. Later she abandons their plan to rescue the Thunderan captives to attack a rat who was beating a slave.
* ShesGotLegs: Does she ever, emphasized by her miniskirt and a garter that her bolo hangs onto.
* ShipTease: When Lion-O tells her about [[spoiler: how he's come to terms with the resolution of]] the LoveTriangle between him, Cheetara, and Tygra, Pumyra's got this little gem:
-->'''Pumyra:''' (Looking at him with a playful smirk) "Maybe it's time you move on to someone else." (Cue flustered double-take by Lion-O).
** Which is lampshaded a few seconds later by an irritated Panthro:
--->'''Panthro:''' "Enough ''flirting;'' let's do something about those slaves."
** Another example comes at the end of "Birth of the Blades:" [[spoiler: after Lion-O saves her from Mumm-Ra, she apologizes for how harsh she's been to him, promising her UndyingLoyalty. When he insists that she [[DoNotCallMeSir call him by name]], she agrees while gently caressing his face.]]
* SixthRanger
* SuperWristGadget: The gauntlet on her left wrist contains a collapsible crossbow, her primary weapon of choice.
* TomboyishPonytail: Combined with...
** TomboyishSidetails
* TrickArrow: The pellets she uses as ammo for her crossbow boast a wide array of armaments aside from the simple metal bearings, including explosives.
* TryingNotToCry: She almost breaks down during her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Lion-O, the first hint that there's something more under all her anger and bitterness.
* {{Tsundere}}: ''Holy crap.'' She's ready to ''kill'' Lion-O until she understands that he didn't just abandon his people and has not only been fighting as hard as anyone else against Mumm-Ra, but would lay down his life for any of the cats. Afterwards, she warms up to him, even bandaging his wounds, and spends the next episode alternating between sparring and ''flirting'' with him.
** "The Birth of the Blades" shows this aspect of her character even more. Pumyra berates Lion-O throughout the episode for failing to save his people when they were enslaved by the Rats, and also calls him out on some of his more reckless-seeming tactics even when they work. After fending off Kaynar and Atticus, and [[spoiler: saving Pumyra after she is captured by Mumm-Ra, at the cost of losing the Sword of Plundarr]], Pumyra softly praises Lion-O for his actions and berates herself for her lack of faith.
* UndyingLoyalty: Pledges this to Lion-O in "Birth of the Blades" after he repeatedly saves her even at cost to himself.
* WeaponOfChoice: A bola and wrist-mounted crossbow, essentially splitting her primary weapon from the original series in two.
** As seen in "The Curse of Ratilla," she also has a small dagger sheathed to the back of her hips for close-quarters action.
* WhatTheHellHero: She calls Lion-O out on leaving Thundera's survivors leaderless.
* WhenSheSmiles: Her voice softens as well, taking on a rather lovely purr. Goes well in hand with her being a {{Tsundere}}.

Snarf is Lion-O's loyal pet and, unlike his previous incarnation, does not speak. [[hottip:*: Nor does he act like a neurotic 70 year old nanny.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Snarf:
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Clearly comprehends speech, enough to become frightened when an enemy proposes that Lion-O DuelToTheDeath.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: The two-minute short "Snarf: Butterfly Blues" sees Snarf frantically protecting an infant Lion-O from danger as he obliviously chases a butterfly.
* ButtMonkey: The more things change the more they stay the same.
* CastingGag: Snarf has [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap transformed]] from the [[{{Thundercats}} original]]'s TalkingAnimal NonHumanSidekick with a VerbalTic to a TeamPet who can only PokemonSpeak. His voice actress is SatomiKoorogi, who voiced Togepi and Pichu in the anime of ''[[{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]''.
* TheConfidant: Lion-O freely [[SurrogateSoliloquy expresses insecurities]] to Snarf that he won't to his family. Snarf [[EmpathyPet does his best]] to lend an ear.
* EmpathyPet[=/=]LoyalAnimalCompanion: For Lion-O, who uses him as sounding board for his issues, and frequently for the Thunderkittens. If "Snarf: Butterflies Blues" is any indication, Snarf has been by Lion-O's side since the prince was a baby.
* EvilDetectingDog: Snarf knows well before Lion-O that the Duelist is [[ObviouslyEvil bad news]]. [[spoiler:He also freaks out over a crow cawing at them at the entrance to the Swordsmans' town. What did Mumm-Ra turn into?]]
* GreenEyes: Yellow green, fully AnimalEyes, in contrast to Cats' visible white sclera
* GrewASpine: Snarf seemed to be nothing but a LovableCoward, unlike his original series counterpart who was annoying but helpful. As of episode 9 he's upgraded to NotSoHarmless status.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Snarf is a domestic cat crossed with one very specific, [[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit bat-eared feline dragon]].
* NearlyNormalAnimal: Level 2, Mostly Normal. Has covered his eyes in terror, razzed himself in a mirror, and (poorly) mimicked Lion-O's fighting style with a stick. Has also gasped and shaken his head vigorously, mouth shut, while making a "''noonoo''" noise on hearing that Lion-o is to DuelToTheDeath.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: His 2011 redesign is this. Fans are already demanding plushies.
* PokemonSpeak: He often utters "Snarf" in between animal noises, as a MythologyGag to the original's VerbalTic.
* ShoutOut: As with the original, his design is a SuperDeformed tribute to RankinBass' version of [[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit Smaug]]. Paradoxically, the resemblance is greater ''[[http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/File:Rankin-Bass%27_Smaug.jpg now]],'' with Snarf's feline features increased.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl
* TeamPet
* TheUnintelligible: He does not speak, but Lion-O appears to understand him just fine. [[hottip:*:By WordOfGod [[http://www.digitalmonkeybox.com/wondercon_2011_thundercats.htm this dynamic]] is a ShoutOut to Chewbacca and Han Solo, or R2-D2 and Luke of ''StarWars'']]
* VerbalTicName: "Snaaaarrrrf!"

!Jaga
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jaga2011bio_3385.png
-->''Voiced by: CoreyBurton''

Head of Thundera's Cleric warriors before [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to ensure Lion-O and his group escape.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Jaga:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Wears a breastplate beneath his PimpedOutCape, huge [[ShouldersOfDoom pauldrons]] atop it, and a [[CoolHelmet spiked helm]].
* BadassBeard[=/=]WizardBeard
* BadassGrandpa: Fully capable of dispatching a WalkingTank on his own.
* BadassMustache
* BattleCry: "[[ChurchMilitant Clerics]], to the death."
* ChurchMilitant: Head of his Clerics, the Guardians of the Crown
* TheConfidant: Deftly convinces Lion-O to admit to having a vision, but decides that the details can wait.
* CoolHelmet: Breaks with the uniform of his Clerics, wearing a nicely spiked metal helm ornamented with a gem.
* CoolOldGuy
* CourtMage
* CozyVoiceForCatastrophes: In his OpeningMonologue, Jaga describes the ''necessity'' of Thundera's doom in an almost reassuringly pleasant tone.
* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]
* TheFatalist: Takes this tack particularly in his OpeningMonologue:
-->'''Jaga:''' ...and though omens foretold in the book would be ignored, the tragedy to come was ''necessary''.
** He also speaks with prophetic certainty where Lion-O is concerned: informing him that the Book of Omens predicted that Thundera's greatest king would have "[[{{Precognition}} sight beyond sight]]," because he's well aware Lion-O has had a vision.
* GoodShepherd: Offers guidance and encouragement to Lion-O.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Attempts one to buy time for Lion-O and the others to escape. Except it's soundly averted, as the next episode he is sucked into a lantern making him look like the original ghost form he had.]]
** [[spoiler: He sacrifices himself again, later, making use of the fact that Mumm-Ra sealed him in a ''[[WeakenedByTheLight lantern]].'']]
* KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge: His Kingdom and his King only ''believe'' in the Book of Omens and think it lost, so much so, they sent their best generals questing for years. Not only does he ''know'' it exists, he's always known [[spoiler: its ''exact location.'']]
* MagicKnight
* [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard]]
* MidnightBlueEyes
* MisterExposition: He narrates the OpeningMonologue and regularly explains things for Lion-O and the viewer.
* TheObiWan: Fairly standard as the old mentor/quest giver.
* OldMaster: Quite impressive on the field of battle.
* OldRetainer: "Be easy on [Lion-O], Claudus. Remember when you were his age, your father wasn't always pleased with you either."
* ParentalSubstitute:
** Has this kind of dynamic with Lion-O, defending him to Claudus, often being there with advice and support where Claudus is very much not.
** {{Flashback}}s show he's this towards an orphaned Cheetara as well.
* PimpedOutCape: Moreso than his King, surprisingly
* [[spoiler:SealedGoodInACan: He is sealed into a magical lantern that forces him to reveal the location of the Book of Omens...Although he does manage to lead Mumm-Ra's mooks around in circles for a time]]
* SecretSecretKeeper: Is fully aware that Lion-O saw a vision in the Sword of Omens, and offhandedly mentions the existence of "[[{{Precognition}} Sight Beyond Sight]]" while convincing Lion-O to confide in him. Unfortunately, he decides to let Lion-O get back to a party and hear him out later.
* [[spoiler: SenselessSacrifice: In his YouShallNotPass he buys them all of five seconds. A rock wall blocks the path right as he's blasted, so he could have easily gotten away despite his earlier injury.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: Tremendous white rounded pauldrons, with grey accents and gold edging, in common with his Clerics.
* [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation]]: Briefly, in an interesting example of toying with audience expectations.
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor[=/=]VirtualGhost]]: Tells Lion-O what there is to know about the Book of Omens.
* StaffOfAuthority: His crosier, which he uses to [[PowerGlows power up]] Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet.
* SuperSpeed
* UnreliableNarrator: His OpeningMonologue is shot through with {{Half Truth}}s, neglecting to mention that Third Earth's "peace and prosperity" belongs solely to Thundera's upperclass Cats, or that the ruler's "just heart" does not extend to [[FantasticRacism other species]].
* [[spoiler:YouShallNotPass: After the fall of the city, Jaga stays behind to give Lion-O, Tygra, and Cheetara a few more minutes to escape.]]

!Claudus
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/473px-Claudus2011bio_5373.png
-->''Voiced by: Larry Kenney''

Lion-O's father and adoptive father to Tygra; he is murdered during TheSiege of Thundera.
----
!!Tropes associated with Claudus:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Part of his RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* ActorAllusion: Larry Kenney (the original voice of Lion-O from the '85 cartoon) tells Lion-O to let him show off what the Sword of Omens can do "in the proper hands." Jaga [[LampshadeHanging mentions]] that Claudus was much like Lion-O himself in his youth and Claudus gets to do the rallying cry one last time.
* AlmostDeadGuy: Has just enough time to say his last words.
* AncestralWeapon: His Sword of Omens
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Wields an AncestralWeapon that OnlyTheChosenMayWield, and has a mane and eyes that match its own coloring.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Can easily mow down multiple Lizards in a single swing.
* BadassBeard
* BadassCape: Black and billowy, particularly during sword fights.
* BadassMustache
* BigGood[=/=]TheGoodKing: For a given value of good.
* CoolChair: Has a high-backed golden throne with cat's head armrests and royal blue cushions, which Mumm-Ra later sees fit to commandeer.
* CoolSword: The Sword Of Omens
* DeathByOriginStory: Is assassinated by Mumm-Ra during TheSiege, shaping Lion-O's personal drive to defeat Mumm-Ra.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Affects this attitude during his son Lion-O's RiteOfPassage, testing his swordsmanship skills while [[ThisIsSparta bellowing]] an oral history of their people.
* TheEmperor: King of Thundera.
* EtTuBrute: Poor Claudus gets this ''twice''. First his most trusted general helps his enemies destroy his city. Then he's stabbed InTheBack, [[spoiler:after rescuing his other trusted general Panthro from capture. As soon as Lion-O asks "[[LampshadeHanging You, a traitor too]], Panthro?!" the second betrayal is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]], and Panthro is revealed as Mumm-Ra in disguise.]]
* EveryDeviceIsASwissArmyKnife: His Claw Gauntlet does triple duty as scabbard, gauntlet and buckler.
* FamousLastWords: "No matter what happens, you've made me proud today."
* FantasticRacism: Harbors a great deal of this towards 'lesser species' like the Lizards.
* FantasyForbiddingFather: To Lion-O, over his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} hobbies and peculiar ideas about Lizards being persecuted.
* FieryRedHead
* FollowInMyFootsteps: Claudus is the stern father to Lion-O who can't understand why his youngest son is so different from his older adoptive brother Tygra and himself.
* GenreBlindness: We've got a classic fantasy society and a plucky not really grown up prince. All standard fantasy openers at this point demand the death of the king.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His neat, horizontal scar across the bridge of his nose
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroicBuild: Arms like tree trunks, this one.
* KnightTemplar: To the hilt. He finds the idea of protecting stockaded Lizards from being lynched rather incredible.
* LargeAndInCharge
* GoodIsNotNice: ShiningCity. BrightCastle. TheGoodKing. NobleBigot. KnightTemplar.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Out-of-universe, it's not so much that Lion-O's outfit resembles his as his outfit resembles Lion-O's... [[CastingGag for obvious reasons]].
* NobleBigot: Seriously, a Lizard lynching builds solidarity, but he'll humor his kid and pardon some prisoners just this once.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, like, his son, part of his AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance.
* ParentalFavoritism: Favors TheDutifulSon, Lion-O's adoptive brother Tygra, even asking him "[[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent Why couldn't [Lion-O] be more like you?]]"
* ThePatriarch: An old-fashioned, fairly inflexible father figure.
* {{Protectorate}}: Thundera and the Cats, at the expense of other Animals.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: A very old-school Thunderian who prefers rule by the sword to engendering mutual understanding with other species. Needless to say, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero this backfires horribly]].
* PunnyName: Claudus rules with "a just heart and razor ''claw''," and has a name one letter away from [[{{Hamlet}} Claudius]], which is easy {{foreshadowing}}.
* RedHeadedHero
* RemakeCameo: Lion-O's father Claudus is voiced by Larry Kenney, the [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}} original series]]' Lion-O.
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Claudus sports a small gold wreath-style diadem as a crown, [[ShouldersOfDoom huge, elaborate pauldrons]], a BadassCape, [[TwentyFourHourArmor full cuirass]] and a large [[ChestInsignia belt-mounted]] cabochon.
* RetractableWeapon: The Sword of Omens retracts to dagger length for stowing inside it's scabbard, Claudus' Claw Gauntlet.
* RoyalBlood
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: A terror on the battlefield.
* SacrificialLion: Does not survive TheSiege.
* ShouldersOfDoom: The most intimidating aspect of his relatively understated RequisiteRoyalRegalia, a set of huge, black and silver dual-layered pauldrons that match his BadassCape.
* SoProudOfYou: His last words, directed at Lion-O.
* TroubledSympatheticBigot: Never understands the wrongheadedness of his views, but genuinely wants his [[TheUnfavorite unfavorite]] son Lion-O to be a good king, and wrestles with the idea that his son has rebelled [[CulturalRebel against his culture]] of FantasticRacism while having GrewASpine just as Claudus had hoped. This dissonance leads him to agree to pardon two Lizards that Lion-O has defended from an AngryMob.
* VikingFuneral: Claudus has a funeral pyre below the ruins of his monument.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: All he does, he does in the name of protecting his people.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: "Why couldn't [Lion-O] be more like you, Tygra?"

!Lynx-O
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/328px-LynxO201101_383.png
-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

A general of Thundera's army. Despite being blind, Lynx-O stands guard at the watch tower and uses his heightened senses to detect any danger that approaches the kingdom.
----
!!Tropes associated with Lynx-O:
* DisabilitySuperpower: Though blind, Lynx-O [[TheNoseKnows detects the scent]] of an invading Lizard army that's just out of sight of his fellow sentries.
* FourStarBadass: He became the General of the Thundarian Army.
* MartialArtsHeadband
* MilkyWhiteEyes: Due to his blindness.
* MultiethnicName: Like Lion-O, the "-O" suffix of his name seems to be a reference to the "ō" in Japanese names and titles meaning "king."
* SuperSenses
* TheNoseKnows: Can smell the lizard army from very far away.
* OneSceneWonder: Has only appeared briefly, and his name wasn't dropped until a few episodes later.

!Mumm-Ra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_mumra_174x252_b_1759.png
-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

Mumm-Ra was the ancient foe of Thundercats, long ago defeated. Resurfacing, Mumm-Ra masterminded Thundera's downfall to obtain the Eye of Thundera, the jewel within the Sword of Omens' hilt.
----
!!Tropes associated with Mumm-Ra:
* AdaptationalBadass: The original's sedentary {{Mummy}} playing OrcusOnHisThrone is not in evidence here. SquishyWizard he may be, but Mumm-Ra makes his debut with an impressive act of regicide, followed up with the [[OneHitKill slaughter]] of Claudus' PraetorianGuard, all without breaking a sweat ''or'' breaking out the OneWingedAngel.
* AdaptiveArmor: [[spoiler:Using [[PowerCrystal Power Crystals]] as [[AmplifierArtifact Amplifier Artifacts]], his Gauntlet can transform into a set of custom skeletal armor.]]
* AgonyBeam: In his OneWingedAngel form, he employs this on Lion-O with intent to kill.
* {{Archenemy}}: To the Thundercats.
* [[spoiler:BatOutOfHell]][=/=]WingedHumanoid: In his OneWingedAngel form
* BigBad
* BreathWeapon: In his OneWingedAngel form, Mumm-Ra can breathe hot pink PureEnergy blasts.
* BrokenPedestal: Mumm-Ra became this for [[spoiler:his tactician Leo]] in the backstory when he [[spoiler:destroyed a solar system populated by billions to forge the Sword of Plundaar.]] This was what convinced [[spoiler:Leo that Mumm-Ra had to stopped.]]
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull[=/=]TransformationNameAnnouncement: (Villain variant) "Ancient Spirits of Evil, transform this decayed form into Mumm-Ra, the THE EVERRRR-LIIIVIIIIING!!!" triggers Mumm-Ra's TransformationSequence into his secondary OneWingedAngel form.
* CardCarryingVillain: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in a very literal sense, as Mumm-Ra must call upon "Ancient Spirits of Evil" to grant him access to his OneWingedAngel Form.
* [[spoiler:CommandingCoolness: Pre-{{Gotterdammerung}}, Mumm-Ra was the Commander of a SpaceNavy that took the Eye of Thundera as {{Plunder}}, and counted ''Thundercats'' among his underlings.]]
* [[spoiler:CoolSword[=/=]DoubleWeapon: His Sword of Plun-Darr]]
* DarkIsEvil: Though Mumm-Ra himself is colored grey, his [[TankGoodness tank]] and any weaponry or armor he uses are black, and chased with TronLines.
* TheDreaded: Even as an artifact of history, his reputation precedes him. His first spoken line, wherein he [[BadassBoast refers to himself]] completely without irony as being "[a thing] of your worst nightmares," suggests he is perfectly happy to [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] this.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When describing Addicus and Kanar to Slithe, he says the two have committed crimes even he wouldn't do.
** [[SubvertedTrope Of course, he then sends Slithe to hire them, anyway... ]]
** Not to mention when you're willing to [[spoiler: wipe out ''billions of lives'' just to create an InfinityPlusOneSword]], you've pretty much crossed the MoralEventHorizon.
* EvilBrit: On an alien planet, no less.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[spoiler: Thinks nothing of Leo and Panthera's shock that he would wipe out billions of lives in a galaxy just to create a sword.]] He mocks Lion-O for trying to save Pumyra rather than try to escape with the Sword of Plun-Darr:
-->'''Mumm-Ra:''' "Generations pass, and your species is still weakened by emotion!"
* EvilIsHammy: ''THEEE EVERRRR-LIIIIIIIIIVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!''
* EvilOldFolks: Not only is he Really700YearsOld, he looks it.
* FangsAreEvil
* HumanoidAbomination: Peculiarly, Mumm-Ra resembles nothing so much as an inexplicably red-eyed, fanged, snub-nosed, grey [[HumansAreCthulhu human]] in {{Mummy}} wrappings. [[spoiler:However, his OneWingedAngel form explains the snub nose and makes his species explicit: He's a leaf-nosed (Vampire) [[BatOutOfHell bat]].]]
** The artists get bonus points for just having his Mummy form move in a subtly WRONG way.
* InTheHood: Mumm-Ra always wears a long, trailing, tattered red cloak with the hood concealing much of his face.
* KamehameHadoken: Quite capably kills most of the Clerics in [[OneHitKill a single blow]].
* LargeAndInCharge: In his OneWingedAngel form, he ''towers'' over the Cats.
* LivingRelic[=/=]TimeAbyss: Mumm-Ra has been around for a ''very'' long time. [[spoiler:He predates the colonization of Third Earth.]]
* TheMagnificent: The '''EVER-LIVING!'''
* TheManBehindTheCurtain: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] TheDreaded ancient enemy of the Thundercats is a small, stooped, old, emaciated...red-eyed EvilSorcerer and ''HumanoidAbomination.'' His physical frailty only serves to make him more disturbing.
** And then he transforms and the Thundercats get their butts handed to them.
* MasterOfIllusion[=/=]MasterOfDisguise: We first see him use it to [[spoiler: disguise himself as Panthro.]]
* MeaningfulName[=/=]MultiethnicName[=/=]PunnyName: Derived from the English word "mummy," and ''Ra'' the ancient Egyptian ''sun'' god.
* MindRape: The interrogation variety is one of Mumm-Ra's specialties, [[spoiler: Though Jaga screams, he doesn't yield the information Mumm-Ra seeks.]].
* MiniatureSeniorCitizen[=/=]MisterBig: In his ShapeshifterDefaultForm, Mumm-Ra is quite short and stooped, but no less intimidating.
* MobileMenace: Gets around in a [[TankGoodness tank]], the Storm Charger, when it suits him.
* {{Mummy}}: With all the standard trappings, and some decidedly nonstandard, like a techno-pyramid.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Mumm-Ra is a *deep breath* {{mummy}}[=/=]{{lich}} [[spoiler:vampire bat ''alien from space''.]] Who lives in a pyramid [[spoiler:''spaceship'']] and rides around in a tank [[spoiler:that's a coffin]]. Amazing, no?
* NonHumanUndead[=/=]OurLichesAreDifferent: His concept also borrows heavily from Lich iconography. Most don't have awesome tanks, though.
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:He destroyed an entire galaxy, with three planets populated by billions of people, to create the material that would become the Sword of Plun-Darr and its gauntlet.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Appropriately enough, [[WingedHumanoid has wings]].
* OutsideContextVillain: Became this over the centuries as memory of him faded away into legend and superstition.
* [[spoiler:RavensAndCrows]]: Mumm-Ra's desperation form, which he uses to flee after coming too close to defeat at the hands of the Thundercats, and for stealth purposes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Played absolutely straight, even [[LiteralMetaphor literally]], as his first appearance ''is'' his eyes, seen in a [[{{seers}} vision]] sent by the Sword of Omens.
* SadisticChoice: When he fights Lion-O in the Mountain of Plun-Darr to retrieve the sword of the same name, he threatens Pumyra by throwing her into a chasm, forcing Lion-O to choose: Grab the Sword of Plun-Darr before Mumm-Ra can, or rescue his fellow cat?
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan]]: Complete with creepy CompellingVoice and a commanding [[spoiler:"''Release me!''"]]
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: A slight-framed HumanoidAbomination in {{Mummy}}-wrappings and a large cloak.
* [[spoiler:SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Mumm-Ra's AdaptiveArmor has a skeletal motif]]
* SorcerousOverlord: An EvilSorceror and an EvilOverlord
* SquishyWizard: [[SubvertedTrope Only]] in his ShapeshifterDefaultForm. Beware when he busts out his ByThePowerOfGreyskull.
* [[spoiler:SufficientlyAdvancedAlien[=/=]WizardsFromOuterSpace:]] Otherworldly magic powers have to come from ''somewhere''...
* TakeOverTheWorld: But of course!
* TankGoodness: His Storm Charger [[spoiler:made of the face of his sarcophagus]]
* TentacleRope[=/=]VariableLengthChain: He can use his bandages to ensnare an opponent and lift them clear off of the ground.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: "Ancient Spirits of Evil... [[TransformationSequence transform]] this decayed form, into Mumm-Ra... '''THE EVERRRR-LIIIVIIIIING'''"
* TransformationSequence: Mumm-Ra's [[OneWingedAngel Ever-living]] transformation sequence, triggered by his ByThePowerOfGreyskull, is seen rather infrequently.
* VaderBreath: Is exceptionally wheezy, [[spoiler: especially when he first wakes up.]]
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Has a ShapeshifterDefaultForm, a OneWingedAngel form, general MasterOfDisguise[=/=]MasterOfIllusion powers, and a desperation form for quick escapes.
* [[spoiler:WeakenedByTheLight: In "Omens Part 2", sunlight interrupts him as he begins of his TransformationSequence and singes him a bit before he staggers back indoors.]]
** In "Journey to the Tower of Omens" [[spoiler:Mumm-Ra is forced to flee after Jaga's HeroicSacrifice via a powerful light spell, and Mumm-Ra ''was already in his true form when it happened''.]]
* [[spoiler:WeaponOfChoice: The Sword of Plun-Darr, as witnessed in "Legacy." And, as the EvilCounterpart to the Sword of Omens, it, too, can shrink down to fit inside his own Gauntlet. [[ShapeShifterWeapon Oh, and it can extend from a single-bladed sword to a double-bladed one.]] ]]

!Grune
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/032-ThunderCats-2011-Grune-the-Betrayer_2797.jpg
-->''Voiced by: ClancyBrown''

Grune is one of Claudus' trusted generals, sent with Panthro to find the Book of Omens. However, motivated by his ambition for power, Grune allied himself with the Lizards and Mumm-Ra.
----
!!Tropes associated with Grune:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: The only time he takes off his armor is to swap it for a new set.
* ArchEnemy: To Panthro.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: While not a {{Bishonen}} like the series' protagonists, he's certainly more handsome in this version.
* AffablyEvil: Until his FaceHeelTurn, his long friendship with Panthro isn't an act in the slightest, and his offer that WeCanRuleTogether is perfectly sincere. He also appears to genuinely enjoy Tygra's company and admire him for their common traits, even enthusiastically training him in swordfighting as a boy.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Grune's motivation for his FaceHeelTurn, underscored repeatedly during Panthro's {{Flashback}}s.
--> '''Panthro''', ''after Grune expresses a desire to rule Thundera'': [[FantasticCasteSystem You planning on becoming a lion]]?
--> '''Grune''': No, I'm planning on becoming ''[[TheUsurper king]]''.
* AscendedExtra: Was a minor, though [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular]], villain in the original series, only appearing in a couple episodes. This version is Mumm-Ra's [[TheDragon right-hand man]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He may run from fights he can't win, but the ones he ''has'' won include killing a giant spider many times his size.
* BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil: An expansive version.
* BearerOfBadNews: With a [[HeDidntMakeIt headshake]], and melancholic praise for his skill in battle, Grune [[DeathNotification informs Claudus of Panthro's death]] and hands over Panthro's [[TragicKeepsake nunchucks]].
* BrownEyes
* TheCaptain: As with Panthro, a [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] element of his {{backstory}}, seen as a stepping stone on his way to becoming a general.
* CarryABigStick: A big freaking mace [[hottip:*: which appears to be a Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanab%C5%8D kanabo]].]] that turns into a [[{{BFG}} big freaking]] LightningGun. Had a more traditional round-headed mace before his FaceHeelTurn.
* CavalryBetrayal: During TheSiege of Thundera, Grune shows up to fire a FlareGun [[spoiler:that seems to bring the HumongousMecha fleet to a halt]], only to perform an InsigniaRipOffRitual and an EvilCostumeSwitch while debuting his nasty new weapon.
* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Even given his FlungClothing, it takes entirely too little time for him to change into his more elaborate togs.
* LesCollaborateurs: Formed an alliance with Mumm-Ra and the Lizards to orchestrate Thundera's fall.
* DealWithTheDevil: Frustrated in his ambitions of rulership, Grune frees Mumm-Ra in exchange for the promise of power, agreeing to engineer Thundera's sacking and serve as TheDragon until Mumm-Ra gets ahold of the Eye of Thundera. He is, however, quick to recognize possible opportunities to betray Mumm-Ra.
* DevilInPlainSight: He dropped anvil-sized hints to Panthro for years upon years that he had designs on the throne. But for some reason, it didn't register [[spoiler: until the moment they met Mumm-Ra.]]
* TheDragon
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Part of his GlorySeeker behavior. He prefers large shows of courage instead of working under the radar, and hopes to become General of Thundera's troops. He's initially very unhappy with being given the quest to find the Book of Omens, and in a moment of paranoia, blurts out to Panthro that not only is it a SnipeHunt, but a UriahGambit to get Grune out of the kingdom.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: By way of revealing his alliance with the Lizards, Grune changes into a dark suit of armor.
* EvilFormerFriend: To both Claudus and Panthro
* FaceHeelTurn
* FangsAreEvil: Because his single, massive sabertooth is neither little nor cute.
* FashionableAsymmetry: It ''does'' look pretty cool though.
* FlungClothing: Grune casts aside his armor in this way
* FourStarBadass: Once "Thundera's greatest general"
* GenreSavvy: As a Thunderian General, Grune understands very well how to play a role as a means to an end, persistently seeking ways to get and stay in Thundera's halls of power and the public eye. As TheDragon, when he sets a trap for the Thundercats, he calls out as he [[VillainExitStageLeft makes his escape]], [[WeWillMeetAgain "Until next time, Panthro!"]] wisely assuming that since Panthro [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat somehow survived]] his first brush with death, he'd do so again.
* GlorySeeker: Calculatingly so, as glory is a means to acquire power.
* GodEmperor: Grune seeks to [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] the CargoCult of the Book of Omens this way
--> '''Panthro''': Look at them, they're already hailing us as heroes.
-->'''Grune''': If we come back with the Book of Omens, we'll be hailed as ''gods''.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: In "Between Brothers", Panthro reveals the reason he's only got one fang: in the past they were confronted by a legendary giant spider, and Grune ''ripped his tooth out'' so he could stab it in the eye. [[{{Badass}} Damn.]]
* HeroicBuild: As Panthro notes, he's a cat "who pulls his weight."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Panthro, in {{Flashback}}s. Likes him enough that even after his FaceHeelTurn he readily makes the offer that WeCanRuleTogether.
* [[HyperspaceMallet Hyperspace Mace]]: In {{flashback}} Grune's mace appears out of nowhere in time for him to fight Panthro
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: As explained by Panthro, his personal philosophy is "To defeat an enemy, any sacrifice is worth it." [[spoiler:Bites him in the ass when Panthro turns the philosophy to justify sacrificing his own arms in order to throw Grune into a collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Grune gives this as his baseline motivation, but the reality is rather more complex.
* InsigniaRipOffRitual: Grune reveals his CavalryBetrayal and begins his EvilCostumeSwitch this way.
* {{Jerkass}}: Betrayed his friend, betrayed his king, betrayed his people, will only fight battles where he's guaranteed to win, list goes on.
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: Grune's M.O. as a soldier. There's a war on? Enlist so he can put his skills to use. He sees his King overrun by Lizards? Rig a catapult to kill them al-well, not the King- so he can become a Captain thanks to his timely demonstration of valor. Huge battle? Keep count of his kills so he can make General.
* MorphWeapon: A ''huge'' ''[[CarryABigStick kanabo]]'', which slowly telescopes, and charges up before serving as a {{BFG}} LightningGun.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Before putting on his battle armor, he's wearing a tweaked version of his outfit from the original series.
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody]]: [[spoiler:In "Between Brothers", he gets sucked into the collapsing Astral Plane along with Panthro's arms; time will tell whether he's KilledOffForReal or not.]]
* OddNameOut: Along with Claudus, breaks the standard ADogNamedDog convention for Thundercat names.
* TheParagonAlwaysRebels: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] with Grune, who [[GenreSavvy understands]] the surest way to succeed at rebellion is to ''become'' a paragon.
* RedRightHand: His single fang, a clear deformity that gives him a decidedly sinister appearance despite his AdaptationalAttractiveness.
* SmugSnake: Much like his original incarnation.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Unlike his 80's counterpart, he isn't a ghost in this series.
* [[spoiler:TheStarscream: Began plotting to kill Mumm-Ra...just before Grune himself suffered an unfortunate mishap involving a demensional gateway.]]
* {{Turncoat}}: Defected to Mumm-Ra as soon as he was promised power.
* TheUsurper: Initially planned to use his status as Paragon and later discoverer of the Book of Omens to become this, apparently including Panthro in his plans.

-->''Voiced by: DeeBradleyBaker''

The brutish leader of the Lizards, Slithe is slightly lacking in sophistication, but he's very intuitive and cunning. He's also a very cruel and vindictive leader.
----
!!Tropes associated with Slithe:
* AdaptationalBadass: So far smarter and more dangerous than his 80's counterpart.
* FantasticRacism: Harbors a strong hatred for cats.
* FatBastard
* {{Jerkass}}
* LargeAndInCharge
* MookLieutenant: Despite being a General, serves in this capacity for Mumm-Ra and Grune.
* MythologyGag: In "Song of the Petalars", Slithe adds a "Yes." to the end of his sentence when speaking, a nod to the original's more severe VerbalTic.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to [[AxCrazy Kaynar]] and [[ImAHumanitarian Addicus]], anyway.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent
* ShoutOut: As with the original, his design is a tribute to the Orcs from RankinBass' ''[[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit The Hobbit]]''.
* TheStarscream: In "Between Brothers" he proved just how far his ''loyalty'' to Mumm-Ra really goes.
* UnfriendlyFire: So Mumm-Ra's still inside the hut? ...[[spoiler:Destroy that hut men!]]
* WeHaveReserves: He wants to burn down the Briar Woods to get the Thundercats. His scouting party's still inside? "They are expendable... as are ''you'', Lieutenant!"

!Kaynar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kaynar_mugshot_225px_7684.png
-->''Voiced by: DeeBradleyBaker''

A Jackalman and one of Mumm-Ra's two new generals. He is the new version of Jackalman from the original series.
----
!!Tropes associated with Kaynar:
* AdaptationNameChange: From Jackalman to Kaynar
* AdaptationalBadass: He even ''looks'' dangerous!
* AxCrazy: While in prison, Kaynar has to be strapped to a gurney and heavily restrained just to be moved to solitary confinement, which he earned after killing eleven inmates. He's pretty sanguine about his punishment:
--> '''Kaynar:''' At least I'll have the voices in my head to talk to.
** He wasn't even intereted in Sliithe freeing him till he was told he could 'play' with some cats.
* BladeOnAStick: His WeaponOfChoice.
* BloodKnight
* EatsBabies: Gives some thought to eating one of the kittens.
* EvilRedhead: Orange fur, but still creepy as hell.
** CurtainsMatchTheWindows
* GigglingVillain
* LaughablyEvil:

-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

A Monkey and one of Mumm-Ra's two new generals. He is the new version of Monkian from the original series.
----
!!Tropes associated with Addicus:
* AdaptationNameChange: From Monkian to Addicus
* AdaptationalBadass: Bigger, smarter, and badder than his 80's counterpart.
* BloodKnight
* CarryABigStick: Not as massive as Grune's and lacking the lightning, but Addicus does swing around a mean looking double headed mace.
* ImAHumanitarian: He seems to have an appetite for other sentients. Let's start with his would-be avian executioners and go from there...
* ManiacMonkeys
* PsychoForHire
* SerialKiller
* VerbalTic: As of "The Trials of Lion-O" he can be heard making monkey grunts similar to his 80's counterpart.

!Ancient Spirits of Evil
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/770px-TCats_Ep17_Still_5_6880.jpg
--> ''Voiced by: JimCummings''

Evil beings who were once worshipped, and give Mumm-Ra his mystic dark power.
----
!!Tropes Associated with the Ancient Spirits of Evil:
* [[spoiler:BigNo: Deliver one near the end of "Native Son".]]
* BiggerBad: These are the ones that Mumm-Ra answers to.
* DarkIsEvil: Indeed it is
* [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]]
* {{Expy}}: One of them looks exactly like the Egyptian God Anubis.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: We only know them by the group title. No individual names, as of yet.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Revealed to have inflicted one on the Tigers: first they let the plague run its course, which killed them all, and then they cursed them to exist as ghosts who would become monsters every nightfall]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The ''reason'' they wanted Tygra dead? [[spoiler:He will be a thorn in their side when he grows older]].
* GodOfEvil[=/=]JerkassGods
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: [[spoiler: Their desire to want Tygra dead created the very thorn they wanted to avert.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Inverted. All four speak simultaneously with the exact same voice

!The Duelist
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/theduelist_2348.png
-->''Voiced by: MiguelFerrer''

The best swordsman in the land, the Duelist challenges those whose weapons he admires to duels, so he can claim their swords as trophies.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Duelist
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Light purple skin.
* BadassLongcoat: Sports an extremely elaborate caped military tailcoat.
* BadassMustache: It's a long, thin handlebar.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Likes unique swords, especially when wielded by inexperienced users. Care to make a wager?
* {{Cool Sword}}s: Yes...exactly, they're what he has, and what he wants.
* DualWielding: Favors a SinisterScimitar and a RoyalRapier.
* EvilSoundsDeep: It's Miguel Ferrer. You can't get much deeper.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: At night, his already red eyes glow.
* HustlingTheMark: A variant. At no point does he ''feign'' incompetence around his [[TheMark marks]]. Instead, he capitalizes on their naiveté of his MasterSwordsman status to goad them into dueling him out of misplaced {{pride}} in their own skills. Oh, and he also neglects to mention that when you put your sword up against his "best blade," he'll have one [[DualWielding in his other hand]]. Presto, one more sword for his portable shield rack.
* MasterSwordsman
* NamedWeapons: Likely has plenty, but the only one given is the Sword of Hattanzo. [[spoiler: And the Sword of Omens for a few hours.]]
* PointedEars
* ProfessionalGambler: Winner takes all. And he always wins.
* PunnyName: He's a duelist, who's a [[DualWielding dualist]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Red irises on deep maroon sclera.
* RoyalRapier: His right-hand sword, to go along with his {{Swashbuckler}} aesthetic.
* RubberForeheadAlien: A rare creature on a planet of HumanoidAliens and PettingZooPeople.
* SamuraiCowboy: A gunslinger with swords, in {{Swashbuckler}} togs just to further [[NinjaZombiePirateRobot confound classification]].
* SinisterScimitar: His [[AWorldWidePunomenon left-hand]] sword, the famous Sword of Hattanzo.
* SmugSnake: A master at his art, who assumes he's unbeatable.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Really, Lion-O should have known he was bad news.
* {{Swashbuckler}}: A walking refugee of the genre incongruously traipsing around a CattlePunk[=/=]''{{Wutai}}'' and challenging victims to a classic ShowdownAtHighNoon.
* VillainousCheekbones: Very high and narrow.
* VillainousWidowsPeak
* WalkingArmory: He carries all of the swords he took from his opponents on his back.

!Conquedor
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Conquedor2_225px_897.png
-->''Voiced by: JonPolito''

A merchant slaver and trafficker who captures Ro-Bear Bill's family. He captures and sells all sorts of things, from Berbils to [[MythologyGag large cats]]. [[KickTheDog Making him the ultimate scumbag]].

----
!!Tropes associated with the Conquedor
* {{BFG}}: His rifle is ''HUGE!''
* CoolHelmet: Wears a modified conquistador's morion.
* EgomaniacHunter: Which could possibly make him an...
* {{Expy}}: Of Safari Joe from the original series.
* FatBastard: Rather corpulent, rather cruel.
* HighClassGlass: He wears what look like infrared googles.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Or whatever the heck he is.

!Ratar-O
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rataro_6961.png
-->''Voiced by: CarloRota''

Tyranical ruler of the Rats in Mount Plun-Darr and the descendant of Ratilla. He enslaved the cats, forcing them to work in the mines and search for the Sword of Plun-Darr.
----
!!Tropes associated with Ratar-O:
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The leader of the rats proves to be a rather capable fighter when Lion-O faces him, with the two of them being rather evenly matched.
* BadassMustache: Has styled his whiskers into a rather refined-looking mustache, akin to what you'd find in an imperial Chinese court.
* BadBoss: His treatment of his direct subordinate certainly won't be winning him any prizes for "Boss of the Year," will it? [[spoiler:[[TheDogBitesBack It comes back to bite him big-time when said subordinate decides to side with Lion-O by throwing him his sword and gauntlet. ]] ]]
* DualWielding: Ratar-O uses the twin Rat Eye Daggers, which are able to shoot charged energy bolts when crossed.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Acts refined and sophisticated, but is as brutal as any other villain. Which leads right into him being a...
* FatBastard
* JerkassHasAPoint: He's a villain and a tyrant, make no mistake. But considering what we knew of Thundera's FantasticRacism towards the lizards, his claim that the cats didn't want to share similar power with other races (hence why they sent Jaga to reclaim the Sword of Plun-Darr from Ratilla) may have more weight to it than we know...
* KickTheDog: When two cat slaves overpower his underling and try to make a run for it, he chases them into a dead end, taunts them for their failure, and unleashes a single blast of energy from his crossed daggers. Then he walks away with a wicked chuckle. [[GoryDiscretionShot We don't actually see the aftermath,]] but it's pretty clear what just happened.
* KnifeNut: Those twin daggers of his are rather large and ornate to be simple knives, but they come close enough.
* LargeAndInCharge: Assuming that paunch isn't just padding from the armor, Ratar-O has a belly on him. He's noticeably taller than his men. And he's [[IncrediblyLamePun the big cheese]]. Yeah, this applies.
* MythologyGag: His design is very close to how he looked in the original series, but closer inspection shows that he actually looks more like the original Ratilla, at least in terms of costume design.
* OhCrap: Gets one of these [[spoiler: when Lion-O gets his sword and gauntlet back, courtesy of TheDogBitesBack.]]
** And another one when [[spoiler: Lion-O's gauntlet generates an energy field to harness the blast from his Rat Eye Daggers, allowing Lion-O to reflect that power right back at him.]]
* ShadowArchetype: Like Lion-O, he's the leader of his people, has claim to an ancestral weapon (the Sword of Plun-Darr to Lion-O's Sword of Omens), and wields an enchanted blade (his Rat's Eye Daggers). However, where Lion-O is a noble leader who respects his team as friends, Ratar-O is a harsh tyrant who berates his servants (Mordax, in particular) for so much as speaking out of turn.
* [[spoiler:TennisBoss: Worth mentioning, as the way Lion-O ultimately defeats him is by using his gauntlet to block and absorb the energy from Ratar-O's twin energy daggers...[[HoistByHisOwnPetard and throw it right back in his face.]] ]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Claims that his motivation for all his cruel deeds--enslaving the cats and having them mine a dangerous cave for the Sword of Plun-Darr--was that he can lead his people to glory, no longer living off the scraps of the cats or any of the other races. [[spoiler:Except, as Lion-O himself puts it, his people "are just slaves on the other side of the whip."]]
* WickedCultured: As mentioned under FauxAffablyEvil, he generally acts like quite the cultured nobleman.

!Mordax
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mordax_3359.jpg
-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

Rataro's underling, who must constantly suffer his abuse.
----
!!Tropes associated with Mordax:
* TheDogBitesBack: See ScrewThisImOuttaHere. [[spoiler:Oh, and he also kicked Lion-O's sword and gauntlet back to him, thereby ensuring that Lion-O would have a fighting chance against his abusive master.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Something of an aversion, as he claims he was JustFollowingOrders to whip a cat-slave when Pumyra attacks him. [[spoiler:In a much more clear aversion, he performs a ScrewThisImOuttaHere on Ratar-o [[TheDogBitesBack and throws Lion-O his sword and gauntlet.]]]]
* EyepatchOfPower: Averted somewhat; he's never shown to be a very capable fighter.
* GigglingVillain: [[spoiler:Averted, his only menacing snicker really comes when he turns on his boss by throwing Lion-O his weapons.]]
* JustFollowingOrders: He pulls this excuse when Pumyra attacks him for whipping one of the cat-slaves. She doesn't take it well.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Smaller than just about everyone, making it easier for Ratar-O to abuse him.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He abandons Ratar-O after suffering under his abuse and being shown mercy by Lion-O.
* UngratefulBastard: Lion-O just saved him from a wrathful Pumyra. How does the little creep show his gratitude? By pulling a scythe on Lion-O, forcing him, Pumyra, and Panthro to surrender. [[spoiler: Ultimately averted, as he ends up turning against Ratar-O ''because'' Lion-O showed him more mercy ([[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe and therefore, kindness]]) than the leader of his own kind ever did.]]

!Captain Koinelius Tunar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/504px-CorneliusTuna2011bio_3851.png
-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

Captain Koinelius Tunar is the commanding officer of a sand ship manned by {{Fishmen}}. He holds an intense grudge against a creature called the Ramlak, which took one of his legs and ruined his people's homeland.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Captain:
* AnimalNemesis: {{Inverted}}. Tunar, a [[{{Fishmen}} Fishman]], has sworn vengeance on The Ramlak, a giant ''{{Planimal}}'', a ManEatingPlant[=/=]GiantSquid HybridMonster. It destroyed his home and took his [[AnArmAndALeg eye and leg]].
* AntiHero: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]], as it becomes apparent that his quest to kill the Ramlak has become all-consuming.
* AnArmAndALeg: Type 3. Tunar lost his leg (and an eye) to the Ramlak, and now uses a peg-leg.
* TheCaptain: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. His fixation on the Ramlak has steadily eroded the relationship between himself and his crew.
* CastingGag: RobinAtkinDownes voiced another captain: Captain Romulus Slag from ''RatchetAndClank''.
* {{Determinator}}: And NOT in a good way, as he relentlessly persues the Ramlak:
-->'''Tunar''': "I'll follow ya straight to the flamin' pits of Magmel before I give you up!"
* HeWhoFightsMonsters
* IHaveComeTooFar
* {{Homage}}: To Ahab of MobyDick. He even quotes him at the end when [[spoiler: the Ramlak pulled him in after getting harpooned, in the same exact way Ahab died.]] He may also be a ''very'' loose adaptation of Captain Hammerhand, from the original series.
* LackOfEmpathy: Illustrated towards his long-suffering crew, who he frequently dismisses as weak.
* PunnyName
* RevengeBeforeReason
* ShadowArchetype: To Lion-O. Like Lion-O, he too lost his home to a horrible monster, one that he wishes to destroy at all costs. Seeing where that mindset eventually leads convinces Lion-O to move past his own inclinations of RevengeBeforeReason towards Mumm-Ra.
* WeirdBeard: Koi whiskers as facial hair.

!Emrick the Petalar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emrik-300x231_1031.jpg
-->''Voiced by: AtticusShaffer, PatrickCavanaugh, and JamesArnoldTaylor''

Emrick is a member of the Petalars, a small race of PlantAliens who've been separated from their homeland for generations. [[spoiler:[[WeAreAsMayflies They live for about a day!]]]] Despite this trait, he's a highly optimistic Petalar who possess an upbeat and adventurous attitude.
----
!!Tropes associated with Emrick:
* BadassAdorable: Capable of going toe-to-toe with opponents many times his size. Not that 'many times his size' is particularly ''big'', but it's still impressive.
* BadassMustache: In adulthood, he gets a dashing ErrolFlynn 'stache.
* CheerfulChild: An enthusiastic young {{Pollyanna}}, quite convinced that, despite being trapped in the [[TheLostWoods Briar Woods]] for generations, Lion-O and his Thundercats will help them find a way back home.
* ConstantlyCurious: He's full of questions for the Thundercats. Lion-O says he reminds him of himself at that age, implying that he was one as well.
* [[spoiler:FinalSpeech: Assures Lion-O that ItsTheJourneyThatCounts]]
* HeroesPreferSwords: Makes one out of a twig to better model himself after Lion-O
* HotBlooded: His one constant trait, mirroring Lion-O.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: An interesting variation. Lion-O is the elder, with Emrick as his much younger friend, [[spoiler:but thanks to the Petalars one-day lifespans, Lion-O sees Emrick become the elder]].
* MotorMouth: During his youth. Luckily his mouth's small enough to be stopped with a little finger.
* PlantPerson: All of the Petalars.
* [[spoiler:{{Retirony}}: Dies before he can ascend the Cliff of Winds, (an uncoiled fern) and ride an updraft to his ancestral home.]]
* TagAlongKid: He's like the little kid brother Lion-O never had. [[spoiler:[[RapidAging For about ten minutes, anyway]]]].

!Khamai, Kask, and Sauro

-->''Voiced by: JamesArnoldTaylor, PatrickCavanaugh, and KevinMichaelRichardson''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Thundercats-Song-of-the-Petalars-069_1313204395_6897.jpg
Three elite lizard commandos who tracked Lion-O and his group into the brambles. They answer directly to General Slithe.
----
!!Tropes associated with Khamai, Kask, and Sauro:
* BareFistedMonk: Kask has a shield, but seems to prefer using martial arts to take down his prey.
* InvisibilityCloak: Being based on a chameleon, Khamai can turn invisible much like Tygra can.
* TheNoseKnows: Sauro is able to catch the scent of the Cats' trail
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent
* ScarilyCompetentTracker
* ShoutOut: The three of them together with Slithe are similar to the band of Mutants from the original series.

!The Driller
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/driller_5567.png
-->''Voiced by: TroyBaker''

The Driller is a giant automaton tasked by Mumm-Ra to work in the Thundrilium mines. He is able to transform into a double ended drill and can bore through almost any surface.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Driller:
* AdaptationalBadass: He is much more menacing and threatening than the relatively simplistic version from the original.
* LoadBearingBoss: After [[spoiler: Lion-O defeats him in "Old Friends", the mine around the Thundercats begins to collapse from the damage he'd caused.]]
* MechanicalMonster
* ThisIsADrill: Yes he is.
* TransformingMecha: He even looks like a [[{{Transformers}} Decepticon]]. His transformation isn't exactly complex though.
* UseYourHead: at the climax of the fight, he uses the drill on his head to try and kill Lion-O. Never mind that he had two perfectly-large drills on his ARMS to engage in the clash with...

!Leo
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thunleo_7006.png
-->''Voiced by: WillFriedle (episode 7) and JasonMarsden (episode 21)''

Leo is Lion-O's ancestor, [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s [[NumberTwo second-in-command]] and leader of the Animal rebellion.
----
!!Tropes associated with Leo:
* AdaptiveArmor: [[spoiler:Using Power Crystals as Amplifier Artifacts, his Claw Gauntlet can transform into a set of custom gold Lion armor.]]
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Like his descendants, his mane and eyes perfectly echo the hues of his weapon, but he lacks the justification of it being an [[AncestralWeapon ancestral birthright]].
* BadassLongHair: Quite an impressive mane.
* CommandingCoolness: Like his immediate superior, also holds the rank of Commander (likely lieutenant commander)
* CoolSword
* {{Expy}}: Of Lion-O himself. Or inverted if you like. Technically, [[YouWillBeBeethoven Leo was first.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords
* InAnotherMansShoes[=/=]YouWillBeBeethoven: What we see of Leo's behavior is actually Lion-O performing a compulsory VisionQuest while being made to re-enact Leo's historical actions.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by his girlfriend Panthera
-->'''Panthera''' (during a riot): Are you gonna stand there and look pretty or are you gonna fight?
* NobleTopEnforcer[=/=]ReverseMole: Inferentially, Leo's been a member of LaResistance for quite awhile, even while serving as TheDragon.
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: For a while, he genuinely believed that [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra]] could bring order to the universe. When [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra demonstrates that he's willing to ''murder an entire star system to forge a super-weapon,'' ]] he swiftly decides to form LaResistance in secret.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, like his descendants
* OneHeadTaller: Leo is a head ''shorter'' than his girlfriend Panthera. In fact, Leo seemed shorter than ''everyone'' in [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s service.
* RebelLeader
* RedHeadedHero
* RetractableWeapon
* RoyalBlood

!Captain Tygus
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tygus_7372.png
-->''Voiced by: CoreyBurton''

Captain Tygus is [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s leader in the field, who's operations obtained the War Stone. [[spoiler:Like other Tigers, he fought against Leo's Mutiny against Mumm-Ra. His clan was banished for this reason.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Captain Tygus:
* TheCaptain: The hands-on, field-leader type, who conducts a one-man assault on a heavily guarded tower powered by a MacGuffin he's {{Plunder}}ing for his Commander.
* {{Expy}}: Of Tygra. Lion-O/Leo even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the man's doubt in his plan:
-->'''Lion-O/Leo''': "A tiger underestimating me. I'm not surprised."
* EyepatchOfPower: Wears a Scouter
* [[spoiler:SpaceMarine]]: Highly efficient against the hostiles that would stand in the way of his obtaining the Warstone.
* UnwittingPawn: In a MacGuffinDeliveryService.

!Panthera
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thunpanthera_6790.png
-->''Voiced by: CreeSummer''

Leo's beloved and coordinator of the rebellion.
----
!!Tropes associated with Panthera:
* BigDamnKiss: Shares one with Leo [[spoiler: as Mumm-Ra's spaceship/pyramid goes plummeting towards Third Earth.]]
* HotAmazon
* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: Cree, of course, voiced Max on ''BatmanBeyond'', so has played the faithful partner to a WillFriedle character before.
* MoralityPet: In "Birth of Blades" she was the one who openly questioned [[spoiler:Mumm-Ra]]'s brutal orders and caused the initially blindly loyal Leo to start questioning them as well.
* OneHeadTaller: Inverted. Leo only comes up to her shoulders if you count his hair.
* ReverseMole
* ReplacementLoveInterest: Following Leo's story, she functions parallel to Cheetara as a lion's [[UndyingLoyalty undyingly loyal]] confidant, counselor, and LoveInterest.
** In "Birth of the Blades," we see more to this relationship. Her initial doubt that Leo can make up for his mistake [[spoiler: in believing in Mumm-Ra, leading to the destruction of a star system]], not to mention [[WhatTheHellHero calling him out on it]], is rather reminiscent of [[spoiler: Pumyra's initial doubt in Lion-O.]] As is the way she softens after Leo proves that he's thought this through, and is willing to follow through to the bitter end.
* StatuesqueStunner: Panthera towers over Leo and he ''definitely'' isn't complaining.
* TallDarkAndBishoujo
* TinyGuyHugeGirl
* UndyingLoyalty: Her faith in Leo is absolute, even when Leo is unsure of the outcome himself.

!Shen
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/225px_shen_2111.png
-->''Voiced by: RobPaulsen''

Leader of the Jackals who joined Leo in his rebellion against Mumm-Ra.

!Rezard
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rezard2_225px_5848.png
-->''Voiced by: RobPaulsen''

Leader of the Lizards who joined Leo in his rebellion against Mumm-Ra.
----
!!Tropes associated with Rezard:
* {{Expy}}: Of ''Slithe,'' of all people.
* LizardFolk
* MeaningfulName: Rezard? Just swap out "Re" with "Li," and you get "Lizard."
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Also willing to work with the Cats, though he expresses more doubts than Shen about this.

!The Drifter[[spoiler:/Hattanzo the Swordmaker]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thedrifter_8989.png
-->''Voiced by: StephenRoot''

A mysterious, eccentric rabbit man who offers Lion-O some much needed advice in the Swordsmans' Town.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Drifter
* AloofAlly: "...if you expect me to help, ''[[ImplausibleDeniability you haven't been paying attention]].''"
* AmericanAccents: A light [[SouthernGentleman southern]] drawl. (His voice artist is a character actor who frequently plays southern archetypes.)
* [[spoiler:AndThatLittleGirlWasMe]]: The Drifter tells a NamelessNarrative of how the Duelist acquired his favorite trophy blade, implying that Lion-O will repeat the mistakes of its previous wielder.
* BadassAdorable: Comes with being a rabbit.
* BadassLongHair[=/=]MessyHair[=/=]WildHair: His dark brown hair is long, unkempt and full of bits of straw.
* BadassPacifist: "A weakness can be turned into a strength."
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Though he inhabits a world full of them, the Drifter specifically DoesNotLikeShoes. [[spoiler:In youth, he was TheOneWhoWearsShoes, but abandoned the trait after his loss to the Duelist triggered a deep depression.]]
* BeneathTheMask: His mildly amused, smiling, BrilliantButLazy exterior hides a despondent man [[spoiler:who still grieves the loss of his masterwork to the Duelist.]]
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: White iris-pupil on black sclera. Very [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]]. He's merely eccentric.
* BrandishmentBluff: [[spoiler:Using the willow reed he keeps [[OralFixationFixation in his mouth]], The Drifter parries the Duelist's attempt to stab Lion-O InTheBack, then continues to mock-attack, relying on the Duelist's startlement and reflexive movements to trip him up. The Duelist lands on his rear and the Drifter mockingly sticks the reed up his nose.]]
* BrilliantButLazy: Until Lion-O piques his interest.
* BulletTime[=/=]SuperReflexes: As "[[NotQuiteFlight a drifter]]," he induces this ''at will,'' to the point where he appears able to {{Overcrank}} himself.
* ConfusionFu: Disorients opponents with NotQuiteFlight, NonchalantDodge, and {{Brandishment Bluff}}s
* [[spoiler:CoolSword: The Sword of Hattanzo, which he made himself.]]
* DanceBattler: And he doesn't even need to throw a punch. At one point, he performs a pirouette in ''midair''.
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: When he lost his best sword to The Duelist.]]
* DissonantSerenity: Swinging a sword at his head won't faze him enough to [[EyesAlwaysShut open his eyes]], or wipe the [[PerpetualSmiler smile]] off his face.
* DistressedDude: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Tends to [[UnwillingSuspension snag himself]] on fences and need Lion-O's help getting down, which begs the question as to why he always [[DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel manages to appear]] where Lion-O is, just when the boy could use some advice...
* TheDitherer: ''Constantly'' qualifies his statements. You should take his advice...or don't...he doesn't care.
* DramaticWind: Accompanies him, ruffling only ''his'' hair and clothes in a given scene, to give an impression of his lightness. In a nod to his EmpathicEnvironment, he frequently uses wind metaphor in his speech.
* TheDrifter: Actually [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] He poses as someone who quite ''[[LiteralMetaphor literally]]'' blows into town, and claims to go "wherever the wind takes him" but that translates to floating around the fringes of the Swordsmans' Town, waiting for someone like himself to come along so he can deliver an AdventureRebuff. By the time he's done with Lion-O, he's come to fully embody his archetype, [[RidingIntoTheSunset walking into the sunset]].
* EarsAsHair: A rabbit, his ears are as straw-filled, floppy and lank as his hair [[spoiler:In youth, they were [[ExpressiveEars expressive]] and sat high on his head, beginning to droop in defeat.]]
* EccentricMentor: "Take my advice and blow on out of here, or don't. I don't care."
* EnlightenmentSuperpowers[=/=]PowerBornOfMadness[=/=]TookALevelInBadass: Not that he ''cares,'' but the Drifter has essentially perfected his NotQuiteFlight and NonchalantDodge [[spoiler:through suffering an ongoing ''major depressive episode''. The languid movements that came with his feelings of despair and apathy after his defeat by the Duelist allowed him to become aware of all his flaws as a young combatant.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The Drifter's hair is long and ungroomed, but [[spoiler:as a young man, he wears his hair in a neat, shorter ponytail.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Often. Seems to only open his eyes when making particularly trenchant points or being very emotionally engaged.
* FatalFlaw: [[spoiler:His {{Hubris}} regarding his swordsmithing skill, assuming he made a sword so magnificent that it could surely beat even a master swordsman, regardless of the skill of its wielder.]]
* [[spoiler: TheGunfighterWannabe[=/=]KidSamurai]]: Became a ScrapHeapHero out of his failure.
* [[spoiler: HeroesPreferSwords]]
* HiddenDepths: Guess why his entry has so many spoilers.
* {{Homage}}: [[spoiler: To HattoriHanzo, particularly ''Film/KillBill'''s swordsmith. As to the fact that he's a [[UsagiYojimbo rabbit]], well...]]
* KarmicTrickster: Towards the Duelist.
* {{Koan}}: "Willows are weak, but they bind other wood."
* LeaningOnTheFurniture[=/=]RebelRelaxation: Slouches, slumps or sprawls whenever there's a structure in his immediate vicinity.
* LimitedWardrobe: In his case, [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]. He's been wearing the same set of clothes for a long time, and it actually shows in their tattered, patched condition. [[spoiler:He's been wearing them ever since his defeat at the hands of the Duelist]].
* MeaningfulName: He literally drifts on windcurrents as easily as a leaf. [[spoiler:His real name, Hattanzo, is a contraction of HattoriHanzo.]]
* MeekTownsman: "This is a Swordsmans' town, stranger, and they duel for keeps. ''[[AdventureRebuff Leave]]'', before it's too late. Or don't, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I don't care]]."
* NonchalantDodge: A ''master.''
* NotQuiteFlight: A marvelously absurd power to float on currents of wind, the catch being that he does seem to [[UnwillingSuspension snag himself]] on tall fences rather frequently.
* OralFixationFixation: Constantly chews a willow reed.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's much shorter than Lion-O and The Duelist [[spoiler:and he proceeds to kick the latter's ass when he tries to stab the former in the back]].
* RascallyRabbit: Overlaps with TricksterMentor.
* RetiredBadass: [[spoiler:Was once "the greatest swordmaker of all time," but hasn't made a sword since his defeat by the Duelist.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Amazing, since he manages to kick ass without kicking any ass.
* ScrapHeapHero: [[spoiler:A failed swordsman, but that doesn't stop him from blocking the Duelist's last knife attack ''with a willow reed'']].
* TheSlacker: "There is such a thing as trying too hard, which is why I prefer not trying at all."
* StepfordSmiler: If his apathy isn't enough of a cue, his oft-present grin hides a deep depression [[spoiler:at the loss of his masterwork, his finest sword, to the Duelist]].
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "I don't care," and many variations thereof, a de facto CatchPhrase. Over time, the ImplausibleDeniability of the statement steadily increases to the point where it becomes obvious it's a [[BlatantLies lie.]]
* TheTropeWithoutATitle: He says he's "just a drifter, I suppose".
* TricksterMentor: He's so good at it that Lion-O didn't even get what he was trying to teach him until he's practically already lost the duel. [[spoiler:He even gave Lion-O a sword that he knew would break, just to drive the point home.]]
* [[spoiler:UltimateBlacksmith: Hattanzo himself, maker of the Duelist's best trophy, the Sword of Hattanzo.]]
* UnreliableNarrator: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed.]] When telling a story, the Drifter conceals [[spoiler:his identity as the protagonist, and his real name in the [[TheTropeWithoutATitle descriptor]] of his sword.]] Lion-O realizes the former, but not the latter, and the Drifter never ''directly'' acknowledges the story's implications.
* [[spoiler:WaifFu: A rare GenderInverted example. Willow reeds kick ass.]]
* WarriorTherapist: Provides a very pointed critique of Lion-O's impatience and poor technical skill.
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:Apparently if you're badass enough, you ''CAN'' disarm someone wielding a knife with just [[ImprobableWeaponUser a willow reed.]] In youth, he was its inverse, UnskilledButStrong.]]
* {{Wuxia}}[=/=]{{Wutai}}: His personal genre. Despite not being a trained warrior, he borrows from the {{Ronin}} concept, and blows WireFu away.
* ZenSurvivor

* InHarmonyWithNature: They use their [[PaperMaster wood forging]] to defend the forest against Viragor, employing a paper mill to produce their supplies. [[spoiler:Which they do by unsustainable clear-cutting with no replanting, provoking the [[SubvertedTrope ire]] of Viragor.]]
* MacrossMissileMassacre: One of Zigg's attacks is basically the paper version of this.

* [[spoiler:BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: Tried but failed to get Tygra mad enough at him. Hoping Tygra would leave before the other tigers tried to kill him, to end the curse they were all under.]]
* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: [[spoiler:Either abandon his son, or ''kill'' him. He made the right call.]]
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong]]
* MeaningfulName: His name refers to the Javan Tiger, an extinct subspecies of tiger that was native to the Indonesian island of Java [[spoiler:which makes sense when it's revealed that he and the rest of his clan have been DeadAllAlong]].
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler: The assassins who try killing Tygra, learn this the hard way.]]
* {{Pride}}: Self-aware enough to realize that the Tiger Clan's pride has always been its greatest flaw. [[spoiler:Even he didn't fully overcome it -- he [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim tries to break his son's heart to drive him away]] because he's too ashamed to admit the AwfulTruth.]]

!Caspin

A former slave and gladiator dog who fought alongside Panthro in the Pit. He rose through the ranks and became the boss of the arena.
----
!!Tropes associated with Dobo:
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ended up in charge of the gladitorial games he was once an asskicking champion in, and it's strongly implied that he overthrew the previous management.
* BadAss: Just look at the guy.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Panthro. [[spoiler: It ultimately ends better than it did with Grune.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: Gladiator boss and easily one of the tallest characters in the series, towering over the already-massive Panthro.
* MeaningfulName: Dobo. Doberman. Get the picture?
* NobleBigot: Despite thinking ill of Panthro for [[spoiler: presumably]] abandoning him to the arena, and thinking that cats in general have no honor, he nonetheless greets Panthro as a friend and lets the Thundercats stay in his city. Later, [[spoiler: when Pumyra refuses to finish off Lion-O even when threatened with death, ]] he even agrees to release Pumyra from the arena.
* RagsToRiches: Started out as a lowly gladiator fighting in the arena. By the time the Thundercats meet him, he's the man in charge of the whole spectacle!

* LoveableRogue

* RascallyRaccoon
* StickyFingers

\n[[foldercontrol]]\n\n[[folder: Thundercats]]\n!Lion-O\nhttp://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_liono_174x252_d_3632.png\n-->''Voiced by: WillFriedle''\n\nLion-O is a prince, made Lord of the Thundercats due to the murder of his father, Claudus. In contrast to the [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}} 80's series,]] Lion-O is introduced as a brash, idealistic teenager. \n----\n!!Tropes associated with Lion-O:\n---
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Always wears his cuirass
Characters/Thundercats2011Thundercats
* AdaptiveArmor: When Lion-O obtains the Spirit Stone and places it in his claw gauntlet, it extends to cover his full arm.
Characters/Thundercats2011TheVillains
* AesopAmnesia: It seems like every other episode is Lion-O learning the same lesson about listening to his teammates and not doing his own thing without their input.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Popular opinion in Thundera is Lion-O is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} for his obsession with technology, a CategoryTraitor for his Lizard advocacy, a CulturalRebel and a thoroughly InadequateInheritor when compared to his brother.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: [[spoiler:With a choice between saving Pumyraa and the Sword of Plunn-Darr, he picks Pumyra.]]
* AlwaysSecondBest: Though Lion-O is painfully aware of this already, his brother Tygra sees fit to loudly and ''[[DiscussedTrope explicitly]]'' inform Lion-O of this in front of a huge arena of people before roundly defeating him in a public sporting event.
--> '''Tygra:''' "When it comes to everything except the crown, you're always going to be second place."
* AncestralWeapon: The Sword of Omens, passed down from his father, is "the sword that built the Thundercats' empire"
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Of course Lion-O's destined to master his AncestralWeapon, a sword that OnlyTheChosenMayWield with accompanying PsychicPowers. His mane is a paler shade of its PowerCrystal, his eyes, a paler shade of its cross-guard.
* AudienceSurrogate: The most frequent viewpoint character.
* BareFistedMonk: Acquits himself very well against all but the leader of a gang of Alley Cats while otherwise unarmed, but puts in a poorer showing while competing against his brother in the games.
** Later puts in a much better showing against a rat slaver in "The Curse of Ratilla," and hammers Ratar-O himself with an impressive right hook in the same episode
* BattleCry: "Thunder... THUNDER... THUNDERCATS, HOOOOOOO!!!"
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlackSheep[=/=]WhiteSheep: Either way, Lion-O doesn't fit in with the royal family. He's simultaneously a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} techie in a family of ProudWarriorRaceGuys and the WideEyedIdealist in a family of [[AnimalJingoism Animal Jingoist]] [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racists]].
* BodyguardCrush[=/=]HotForPreacher: Lion-O has an obvious crush on Cheetara, his ChurchMilitant PraetorianGuard.
* BullyHunter: Gradually becomes this, as he goes from incidentally fighting bullies in his hometown to actively asserting that predatory antagonists, like the Duelist, need to be taken down a peg.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull:
** His BattleCry of "Thunder... THUNDER... THUNDERCATS, HOOOOOOO!!!" causes his Sword Of Omens to transform and turn from [[RetractableWeapon dagger to longsword]] unlocking its [[SwordBeam full combat potential]], and projecting a BatSignal of his [[IconicLogo royal emblem]] to summon allies.
** The command "Sword of Omens, give me [[{{Seers}} Sight Beyond Sight]]!" allows Lion-O to use the sword's PsychicPowers.
* CatchPhrase[=/=]ThisIsGonnaSuck[=/=]UnusualEuphemism: "Whiskers," Lion-O's signature OncePerEpisode phrase, quite possibly the least threatening curse ever.
* CategoryTraitor: Lion-O's defense of the stockaded Lizard slaves and attempt at ShamingTheMob harassing them backfires spectacularly, stirring up the PowderkegCrowd into demanding a full blown PublicExecution and turning their TorchesAndPitchforks on ''him,'' calling him "[[FantasticSlur Lizard lover]]" and threatening to put him in the stocks themselves. Yes, everyone ''hates'' their crown prince and future king.
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler: After returning from death in "The Trials of Lion-O".]] He actually ''scares'' [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra!]]
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Lion-O feels doubtful and insecure in his leadership from time to time, once wondering aloud "Maybe the sword chose wrong."
* CharacterDevelopment: Shortsighted and prone to alternately HotBlooded and well-meant impulsive decisions, Lion-O gradually learns through several missteps how to take a longer view and think before he acts. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when, atypically, he realizes a tactical error mere seconds after he's made it, firing a grapple at an ''angry'' GiantFlyer:
-->'''Lion-O''': *as he realizes he'll be dragged skyward* Maybe this is a bad ide-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
** He later demonstrates long-term planning skills and more abstract thought while searching for the hidden Spirit Stone.
** From "The Trials of Lion-O: Part 2" on he is far more mature and even-tempered, and makes full use of his tools and abilities.
* ChekhovsSkill: Lion-O's much-ridiculed intense study of technology finally pays off when he figures out the user interface of a BlackBox that he later [[spoiler: uses to blow up a war mech]]
* AChildShallLeadThem: Lion-O is still young, and very green in his kingship.
* TheChosenOne: During a RiteOfPassage, the Sword of Omens granted Lion-O a vision of the future, [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield choosing him]] as the next king.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His reputation among the Thunderians prior to Thundera's fall. Grune [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it, saying he "still [has] his head in the clouds." while Tygra has harsher words:
--> '''Tygra''': That's your problem. You look at Lizards and see victims. You look at junk and see mythical tech.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Actively seeks out LostTechnology, even if he has to turn to a FriendInTheBlackMarket to get it.
* CoolSword: The Sword of Omens, naturally.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: Not that Lion-O feels much like gloating, since confirmation of LostTechnology's existence comes at a price, when the Lizards use it to destroy his kingdom. He even gets redeemed for his defense of the Lizards when one of them [[AndroclesLion repays the favor]]. [[spoiler:and slips him the key to his cell]].
* CulturalRebel: Who needs to learn about how CatsAreSuperior or MightMakesRight when there are machines to tinker with? And it actually seems wrong that those Alley Cats are beating up that Dog...
* DeadpanSnarker: He can get pretty snarky and often matches Tygra wit-for-wit. Most of his lines in "Legacy" are wry observations on the situation.
* {{Determinator}}: Lion-O doesn't give up easily, which has both gotten him into trouble, and out of it.
* [[spoiler:DidNotGetTheGirl[=/=]HopelessSuitor]]: [[spoiler: For Cheetara.]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: Lion-O holds his father while he dies. [[spoiler: And his friend Emrick, in the palms of his hands]].
* DontCallMeSir: [[spoiler:After saving Pumyra's life in the mines, he asks her to call him "Lion-O" and not "Your Majesty."]]
* TheEmperor[=/=]TheGoodKing: King of Thundera, and Lord of the Thundercats, [[VestigialEmpire for what it's worth]]...
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Lion-O is introduced [[KingIncognito sneaking]] cloaked and [[InTheHood hooded]] into the [[TheCityNarrows worst part]] of Thundera's slums, only to catch the eye of a gang of "Alley Cat" muggers who've just finished beating a hapless [[{{Dogfaces}} Dog]]. He manages to [[MuggingTheMonster fight most off]] but has to be bailed out by Cheetara, to whom he reveals his reasons for being there: to find rare and obscure pieces of "[[LostTechnology technology]]," which everyone else believes to be a myth.
* EveryDeviceIsASwissArmyKnife: Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet does quadruple duty as scabbard, gauntlet, grappling hook, and buckler.
** Adding the various power stones can upgrade it into armor.
* FatalFlaw: {{Pride}} and overestimation of his skills gets him into trouble, he also struggles with self-doubt.
** It's actually discussed in "The Trials of Lion-O." [[spoiler: The whole prologue of the episode was Lion-O trying to prove to everyone that he's right and everyone should follow him. It leads to his DisneyDeath. During the actual trials, Lion-O fails to defeat Trial!Tygra, who mentions that deep down, Lion-O didn't believe that he'd be a worthy ruler.]]
* FatherIDontWantToFight: ...Lizards my people have spent generations oppressing and enslaving.
* FieryRedhead
* FriendOrIdolDecision: In "Birth of the Blades," Lion-O is faced with a SadisticChoice: Save Pumyra from falling to her death, or grab the Sword of Plun-Darr before Mumm-Ra can? [[spoiler: He chooses to save Pumyra, earning her gratitude and UndyingLoyalty.]]
* GenreBlindness: Lion-O sees a [[{{Precognition}} vision]] in the magic Sword of ''Omens,'' and CannotSpitItOut, preferring to lie and claim he was [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]] by two passing girls, since he assumes his father will think him a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} if he speaks up. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since Lion-O is selectively CultureBlind, neglecting his royal duties in favor of collecting and studying LostTechnology, a ''ridiculous'' hobby in a Magical Kingdom.
* GreaterNeedThanMine: Lion-O will help others at great personal cost, this is what earns him [[spoiler: Pumyra's UndyingLoyalty in "Birth of the Blades" as he continues to fight for her even after she loses the Sword of Plundarr.]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: The Claw Gauntlet can fire the four fingers as anchors to surfaces.
* GrewASpine: Though a CulturalRebel, Lion-O was reluctant to share his radicalism with anyone but Snarf, and exploits his image as a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} to avoid disclosing a vision he saw in the Sword of Omens. But after hearing that "Sight is useless without action," from Jaga, he makes a SuddenPrincipledStand, faces down an AngryMob and convinces his father to [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege pardon two Lizard prisoners]].
* TheHeart: Arguably to all of ''Thundera''. Lion-O immediately steps up to defend anyone, regardless if they're seen as enemies or not, proclaiming, "No one deserves to be treated like that."
** He will also help anyone in need and expect nothing in return, it earns a lot of friends.
* TheHero
* HeroicSacrifice: One of his personality traits [[spoiler: and what earns him a second chance at life in "Trials Part 2"]]
** [[spoiler: It's what also changes Pumyra's opinion of him in "The Pit," he would rather die than hurt her or any of his subjects.]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity: The word "crazy" keeps popping up in discussions about what Thunderians think of Lion-O, to the point that he automatically anticipates this opinion from Cheetara.
** [[spoiler: Pumyra (and apparently the rest of the refugees) believe he abandoned them after the fall of Thundera.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HesBack: "The Trials of Lion-O: Part 2"
* HonorBeforeReason[=/=]TooDumbToLive: Lion-O suffers a fit of this while grieving for his father [[spoiler: and his friend Emrick]], invoking a recently-learned {{Aesop}} about living life fully to justify acting on his culture's (and inferentially, his father's) motto that "Thundercats never retreat." This leads him to impulsively [[LeeroyJenkins charge into]] a battle so one-sided his entire group would have died were it not for a DeusExMachina. Inverted when the Elephant Village gets taken hostage and opts for a stealth approach considering the hostage situation. Firmly averted after his Trials where he thinks ''before'' he acts and will sometimes allow things he doesn't like to happen if it means the success of the greater mission.
* HotBlooded: The destruction of Thundera and murder of his father has a negative effect on Lion-O's control of his emotions, naturally. As the series progresses he pretty much grows out of it.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Up until "Sight Beyond Sight" he has great difficulty using the titular ability. After learning to view "the big picture," as per instruction from various gurus, he gains perspective, and becomes more able to use the Sword of Omens' PsychicPowers.
* HumbleHero: This works both for and against him, as his humility gives him great compassion, but also undermines his confidence when he needs it most.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Spoken word-for-word in "The Pit" when trying to turn Pumyra.
* [[spoiler: IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Zig-Zagged, in "New Alliances" he tells Tygra and Cheetara that he knows about their relationship and he's happy for the both of them, but privately chews Cheetara out for (unintentionally) leading him on.]]
* IconicItem: The Sword of Omens
* IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance: While Lion-O is ''very'' right about the existence of LostTechnology, he initially dreamily romanticizes it, not realizing its potential as a ForgottenSuperweapon until witnessing the destruction first-hand. It's also quite jarring to his NobleBigot sensibilities when a Lizard informs him [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch His Species Doth Protest Too Much]].
* InTheHood: Lion-O travels TheCityNarrows of Thundera in a dark blue cloak.
* InadequateInheritor: Pretty much everyone agrees that Tygra would be a better king than Lion-O. He doesn't even get much praise from his father until right before his death.
* IndyPloy: He's getting very good at thinking on his feet and he pulls off a series of these in "Birth of the Blades."
* InstantExpert: Despite only tinkering and playing with mostly broken and non-functional trinkets, Lion-O is remarkably quick to pick up the workings of technology, and has no trouble at all sailing two hi-tech airships.
* {{Jerkass}}: For all of one episode due to his rage and hate blinding him to everything else. He gets better at the end.
** TookALevelInJerkass: After "Between Brothers" through the end of "The Trials of Lion-O" due to [[DidNotGetTheGirl not getting the girl]].
* KidHero: At [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8539085553/thanks-for-the-follow-ive-been-a-tcats-fan-for seventeen]], he's the youngest of his fellow nobles. Panthro dryly [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] their lack of "adult supervision" before his arrival.
* KidSamurai[=/=]YoungGun: In the CattlePunk[=/=]''{{Wutai}}'' Swordsmans' Town, Lion-O is swiftly pegged as this by the Drifter, who [[AdventureRebuff warns him off]], and the Duelist, who [[ExploitedTrope exploits]] Lion-O's naiveté for all it's worth, goading him into a ShowdownAtHighNoon.
* KindheartedCatLover: Or... ''whatever'' his pet Snarf is. Anyway, he loves him.
* KingIncognito: Lion-O has a habit of walking the slums disguised as a peasant.
* LastOfHisKind: Lion-O is the last of the Lions, the Cats who constitute Thundera's royal bloodline.
* TheLeader: Of his Thundercats, much to Tygra's chagrin and Panthro's irritation (though Panthro does warm up)
* LeeroyJenkins: Unlike many here, a genuine flaw of the HotBlooded young Lion-O, which Panthro has very little patience for.
* LonelyRichKid: Despite being the prince, so far Lion-O's childhood looks like it may have been a pretty lonely one.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet serves as a buckler, in a pinch.
* AManIsAlwaysEager: He has ''no'' problem using his ancestor's relationship with fellow rebellion leader Panthera to score a makeout session [[spoiler: right before Mumm-Ra's ship crashes in his vision of the past]]
-->'''Lion-O:''' I am so dead... But at least I have a girlfriend!
** Subverted later with Pumyra, when she starts flirting with him he just looks confused and vaguely disturbed, probably because he has been burned in the past, but also because she tried to ''kill him'' only a few hours earlier.
* MissingMom: Lion-O's mother is nowhere to be seen. [[spoiler: This is because of her DeathByChildbirth, as revealed in "Native Son".]]
* MultiethnicName: The "-O" suffix seems to be a reference to the "ō" in Japanese names and titles meaning "king."
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: After listening to a Lizard explain how the Cats' oppression gives him few options in life, Lion-O is much less enthusiastic about his culture's endorsement of MightMakesRight or FantasticRacism.
* NamedWeapons: The Sword of Omens
* NiceGuy: You could count the number of ''beings'' in the series who are half as decent as him.
* NobleBigot: Begins as a [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racist]], shooing ProducePelting kids away from the stockades, but presuming the Lizards therein are otherwise entirely deserving of punishment... until they proceed to [[CantArgueWithElves argue]] the point.
* NobleFugitive: Breaking out of dungeons, running to {{MacGuffin}}s, away from the Lizards.
* NobodyCallsMeChicken: Appeals to courage or implications of cowardice are a sore point with Lion-O, culturally and personally, especially if his conduct is compared to his father.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, a family trait he shares with his father, and part of the AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance that marks him as able to use the Sword of Omens' "Sight Beyond Sight".
* PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: Lion-O's voice gets deeper whenever he uses the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sword of Omens]] and [[ByThePowerOfGrayskull shouts "ThunderCats, ho!"]]
* AProtagonistShallLeadThem: "For [[BecauseDestinySaysSo it was written]] that he would be born of fire, a king to lead his people to victory against ancient spirits of evil."
* RebelPrince: [[ReconstructedTrope Reconstructed]]. It's made patently obvious early on that Lion-O ''really'' doesn't want to be king, but cannot pass it to anyone else as he was chosen by the Sword of Omens. It is the act of rebelling against his princely responsibilities that has put Lion-O in touch with the common slum-dwellers and Specific minorities, and connected him with LostTechnology, making him Thundera's WisePrince.
* RedHeadedHero
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Lion-O wears a much less elaborate version of the [[TwentyFourHourArmor cuirass]] and [[ChestInsignia belt-mounted]] cabochon sported by his father.
* TheResenter: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Lion-O is the hero of the narrative, but not of Thundera's people. ''They'' adore Tygra, and think of him as their ideal leader, while Lion-O is TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone. Lion-O ''loathes'' this state of affairs.
-->'''Lion-O''' (in SarcasmMode): You're just so perfect, aren't you, Tygra?
-->'''Tygra''': Why, thank you, Lion-O!
* RetractableWeapon: The Sword of Omens retracts to dagger length for stowing inside it's scabbard, Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet. It extends fully when Lion-O performs his ByThePowerOfGrayskull.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Hits this ''hard'' in "Ramlak Rising", choosing to disobey Jaga's demand that he find the Book of Omens in favor of hunting down Mumm-Ra, though his encounter with the similarly motivated Captain Tunar causes him to rethink his priorities.
* RoyalBlood: Lion-O is a Lion, which automatically confers the [[KingOfBeasts right to rule]].
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Initially [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], as Lion-O's hobbies, opinions and jaunts to the slums are seen as ''evidence'' that he's TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone. Lion-O's [[ZombieAdvocate Lizard advocacy]] even causes Claudus to label him an UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom when the Lizards invade, ''denying'' him the chance to join Claudus and Tygra on the battlefield. Then Lion-O takes matters [[ReconstructedTrope into his own hands]].
* {{Seer}}: As TheChosenOne, only Lion-O can use the Sword of Omens' "Sight Beyond Sight" to see visions of the future, hidden or far off objects, or metaphysical locations.
* ShonenHair
* SkilledButNaive[=/=]UnskilledButStrong: Lion-O's weakness in technique with the Sword of Omens is that he prefers a straightforward, purely offensive barrage that relies on momentum and power, very effective in a large battlefield melee, but useless when opponents have guile and space enough to maneuver. The Drifter notes this, and instructs him in defensive evasion. This improves his technique greatly, but later episodes show that he can still be overpowered by opponents who are just plain physically stronger than him.
* StillTheLeader: Initially did not take Panthro's assertive BaldBlackLeaderGuy role well, despite being out of his depth during their shared mission. In a fit of pique, Lion-O pulled a LeeroyJenkins that required Panthro's intervention, but Lion-O soon earned his respect and deference when he proved an effective wielder of the Sword of Omens. He also has to deal with Tygra constantly questioning and criticizing his decisions, even after he starts making decent ones.
* SurrogateSoliloquy: Lion-O makes a habit of using his EmpathyPet Snarf as a [[TheConfidant sounding-board]] for his thoughts.
* TookALevelInBadass: The point of the Trials, not only to test his skills, but to force him to confront things about himself he doesn't like and hold him back.
* TheUnfavourite: His father much prefers his adoptive older brother Tygra.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Lion-O gets accused of this when the Lizards invade, with Claudus convinced that the Lizard invasion was accelerated by a show of weakness when they pardoned the Lizard scavengers. He's sidelined, forbidden to join Tygra and Claudus on the battlefield.
* WarriorPrince: Even before his kingship, could hold his own as a BareFistedMonk.
* WholeCostumeReference: To the original, with some tweaks.
* WideEyedIdealist
* TheWisePrince: In stark contrast to his 80's IdiotHero counterpart, Lion-O is very much a "bigger picture" kind of guy and rather than destroying his enemies would rather [[DefeatMeansFriendship convert them to his side]]. However he does have his moments [[KidHero due to inexperience.]] This is more pronounced after his trials where he is more mature and level-headed, and sticks to his principles like glue.
* WouldHitAGirl: He decked a female {{catfolk}} mugger right in the face without a blink in the slums. In Thundera, strength matters above all else.
** Subverted in his fight with Pumyra, but had nothing to do with her being a girl, he won't fight another cat pure and simple.
* TheWrongfulHeirToTheThrone: So universally held is this opinion that Lion-O gets to hear from both Grune and Tygra how good a king Tygra would be, with Tygra outright claiming (only as a ''joke,'' of course) that he'd be better than Lion-O. It's so blatant even his father comes to his defense. He even worries about this himself, once pondering "Maybe the sword chose wrong..."
** Lion-O's subconscious belief that this is true is so strong that he [[spoiler:(supposedly) fails the Spirit Stone's trials in "The Trials of Lion-O".]]
* YouAreWorthHell:[[spoiler: In "The Trials of Lion-O", he failed against Tygra and so would die. To go save his comrades, he offers up his soul to be given until sun rise to save them knowing his soul would be doomed to live in Limbo for all time.]]
** In "The Pit" [[spoiler: he takes a brutal beating from Pumyra and refuses to fight back to prove that he would never hurt her or any of his people.]]
* YoungestChildWins: Despite being the younger, it is Lion-O who is first in line for the throne, because he is of the Lion bloodline, and because he was chosen by the Sword of Omens.
* ZombieAdvocate: Lion-O defends Lizards from a VigilanteExecution by an AngryMob, which is seen as absurd by both the mob and his father.
** He does it again when he spares the rat Mordax from being killed by Pumyra.

!Tygra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_tygra_174x252_b_6165.png
-->''Voiced by: MatthewMercer''

Tygra is the adoptive brother of Lion-O and has an active SiblingRivalry against him, since he's often more skilled and resents his younger sibling's position as crown prince. He can be cocky and arrogant at times, and flirtatious as well.
----
!!Tropes associated with Tygra:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Acquires a set after the siege of Thundera.
* {{Adorkable}}: When he was younger, as revealed through a flashback to when he met Cheetara. He certainly wasn't as much of TheCharmer as he is now.
* AloofBigBrother: At his worst, Tygra expresses utter disdain for his brother's idealism and dabblings in LostTechnology. He softened on the latter when said technology was revealed to be real.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Tygra tries to be AlwaysSomeoneBetter because of a deep InferioritySuperiorityComplex, and an abiding suspicion that as a mere SpareToTheThrone, he will forever lose to Lion-O, a motivation underscored when Tygra bitterly rants about how Lion-O's taken away both his chance to wear the crown, and, he suspects, his chance to romance Cheetara, the LoveInterest of their SiblingTriangle.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Tygra actively [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this whenever able, out of a need to feel superior due to his [[TheResenter resentment]] at being out of the chain of succession. He loves to show up his younger brother, and makes a point of "jokingly" telling his father with Lion-O in earshot, "I just would have been a better [king]."
* BareFistedMonk: Is quite capable unarmed, soundly defeating his brother in Thundera's games.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Despite all this, when Lion-O is in real trouble, Tygra supports and fights with him.
* BigBrotherMentor: During shared reminiscences of their father Claudus, Tygra drops his usual resentful critiques when Lion-O expresses genuine [[TheChainsOfCommanding insecurities]] at leading, telling him to believe in himself. This moment of bonding is brief, and Tygra's back to needling him a short while later.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlueBlood
* BrokenAce: Tygra is better than Lion-O. At ''everything.'' He's older, more skilled at fighting, more knowlegeable in military tactics, more popular with their people, father's favorite, and TheDutifulSon, but to his great resentment, his flaky {{Cloudcuckoolander}} ''[[JustAKid kid]] [[TheLoad brother]]'' gets to be TheChosenOne and the king by dint of RoyalBlood alone, and even gets attention from Cheetara, whom Tygra has pined for from afar.
* BrownEyes: Prone to winking.
* TheCharmer: Tygra, who openly flirts with one of the clerics (actually Cheetara), during Lion-O's RiteOfPassage, to Lion-O's shock.
* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler: The reason why the Ancient Spirits of Evil chose him as a sacrifice is because he will be a thorn in their side.]]
* CompassionateCritic: Towards his brother Lion-O, frequently criticizing his many deficiencies and failure to conform to Thunderian culture and their father's expectations.
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDutifulSon: And he knows it.
* FirstGuyWins: [[spoiler: Cheetara chooses him, thus ending the LoveTriangle]].
* GreenEyedMonster: It's pretty obvious that he's extremely jealous of both his brother's position as leader, and Cheetara's apparent romantic interest in him.
* HappilyAdopted[=/=]SpareToTheThrone: Tygra is an adopted member of the royal family, and the beneficiary of Claudus' ParentalFavoritism. This development grew out of the original series' assertion that if anything should happen to Lion-O, Tygra would be next in line as ruler.
* HonorBeforeReason: "Thundercats never retreat!" Tygra complains when Lion-O orders him to do so. Later Lion-O takes the criticism to heart, getting them all into trouble.
* HotForPreacher: Tygra openly flirted with a Cleric in FullBodyDisguise. She turned out to be Cheetara, on whom he has a longstanding crush.
* HypocriticalHumor: May not have been intentional by the creators, but for someone whose refused to admit technology existed, having a blaster as a weapon is kind of funny.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He's a superb shot for having never seen anything like a gun before in his life. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since laser guns have no recoil, it's a matter of point-and-shoot.
* InstantExpert: After proclaiming technology a myth his entire life, he used a pistol for the first time during the invasion and now relies on it more than his whip.
* InvisibilityCloak: Tygra can become temporarily invisible with the aid of his whip.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Tygra loves to rub it in Lion-O's face that he's better then him "when it comes to everything except the crown," but his BigBrotherInstinct comes through in the clutch, and he plainly states "[[IGotYouCovered I've got his back]]." to an AngryMob Lion-O has challenged to GoThroughMe.
** The "gold" part is what allows Tygra to [[spoiler: win Cheetara's heart at the end.]]
* TheLancer: Argumentative, snarky second to Lion-O's leader.
* [[spoiler:LastOfHisKind]]: [[spoiler:As of "Native Son", he's the last of the Tiger clan.]]
* LoveHurts: The look on his face when [[spoiler:Cheetara kisses Lion-O on the cheek for luck]]. However, this later leads to...
* [[spoiler:LoveRedeems: And fulfills a prophecy of betrayal a few hours later, go figure.]]
* MissingMom:[[spoiler:In "Native Son" his adoptive mother died giving birth to Lion-O.]]
* MosesInTheBullrushes: He ended up in Thundera in a hot air balloon.
* MulticoloredHair: White, orange brown and black striped.
* NobleBigot: He's internalized his culture's FantasticRacism, since he is fairly dismissive of a Lizard prisoner's ScrewYouElves speech and sees little problem with the Lizards being lynched. Still, given the choice, he's willing to help his brother defend them. He's also readily amenable to taking on the Thunderkittens, who are of a [[FantasticCasteSystem lesser caste]] than he is.
* NobleFugitive: Like his brother, escaped the captivity of the Lizards.
* ParentalAbandonment: See MosesInTheBullrushes, MissingMom and [[spoiler:[[HumanSacrifice Tiger Sacrifice]]]]
* {{Pride}}: The recurring flaw in his clan's line.[[spoiler: Tygra's ability to be humble and forgive his father for all his actions saves both himself and his clan's souls.]]
* RayGun
* TheResenter: The driving force behind his SiblingRivalry with his brother is his resentment of Lion-O's right of succession by [[RoyalBlood bloodline]]. Adding fuel to the fire is their SiblingTriangle with Cheetara.
** [[spoiler:Tygra gets over it after Lion-O ''dies'' (he gets better) and he briefly becomes king. He's grief-stricken and regretful of his past resentment. When Lion-O returns Tygra immediately proclaims his UndyingLoyalty to him.]]
* TheRival: Quite naturally plays this role to his brother in the course of their SiblingRivalry, until throwing in with him when Lion-O faces down an AngryMob, at which point he becomes a particularly testy {{Lancer}}.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Can win sporting competitions, hold back {{Angry Mob}}s with his whip, and battle evil with the best of them.
* SarcasticDevotee: Often snarkily questions Lion-O's leadership.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. As a boy, he developed a habit of watching a young Cheetara from afar, too shy to strike up a conversation.
* [[SwordAndGun Whip And Gun]]
* ThrowTheDogABone: Tygra spends 13 episodes watching how his younger brother steals his thunder (Although to be fair, he gave as good as he got), his right to the throne and even the woman he has loved since he was a little boy. To twist the knife on the injury, Tygra cannot get himself to get rid of Lion-O, even if he gets two ''perfect'' chances to do it and continues supporting him out of loyalty and brotherly love. [[spoiler: Cheetara ends up chosing HIM instead of Lion-O. In fact, Cheetara had already chosen Tygra several years before Lion-O appeared, but never had the chance to confess that to him.]]
* [[spoiler:[[HumanSacrifice Tiger Sacrifice]]: His clan was plagued by a deadly, incurable disease. When his father asked the Ancient Spirits for help, Tygra was the price because of his destiny to become a Thundercat and fight them. His father could not kill him and sent Tygra away like MosesInTheBullrushes.]]
* TragicKeepsake:[[spoiler: His birth father's whip.]]
* TheUnchosenOne: He was passed over in favor of Lion-O as heir to the throne. Part of this is because despite being the elder he's adopted and thus not of the royal bloodline, but also because the Sword of Omens itself chose Lion-O, and he can't understand why.
* UndyingLoyalty: [[spoiler:To Lion-O as of "The Trials of Lion-O" part 2.]]
* [[spoiler:VictoriousChildhoodFriend: With Cheetara]]
* WarriorPrince: Is chosen over his brother to join his father on the battlefield during the siege of Thundera.
* WhipItGood: Tygra's WeaponOfChoice.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Takes out a Lizard mook in "Into the Astral Plane" by sneaking up behind him and then suplexing him.

!Panthro
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_panthro_174x252_b_8110.png
-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

Panthro is one of Claudus' most loyal soldiers. He was sent with his friend Grune to find the Book of Omens. [[spoiler:However, their attempted search resulted with Mumm-Ra's release from imprisonment.]] Though he questioned Lion-O's ability to lead, Panthro eventually accepted him as the new king.
----
!!Tropes associated with Panthro:
* AnArmAndALeg: Type 2. Panthro lost both of his arms, [[spoiler:to a PortalCut, intending to lay down his life while restraining Grune on the threshold of the collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Quite capably fells multiple Lizards in one blow. (and temporarily pulls rank on Lion-O for agitating these Lizards.)
* {{Badass}}: According to [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/117/1176532p1.html Michael Jelenic]]: Panthro is "a pretty cool character, just like on the old show." He repeatedly mows through multiple foes with ease, whether in his personal tank, or toe-to-toe against a group of lizards while armed with only one ''nunchaku.''
* BadassDriver: Of his Thundertank. He's even up for the occassional game of chicken.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: Plays this straight when he initially joins the Thundercats, insistant that they prove their worth, no matter how much Lion-O objects.
* BaldOfAwesome: Done to [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/9265237591/ok-this-must-be-asked-panthro-why-the-mutton-chops evoke]] the ''sakayaki'' tonsure of an old {{Samurai}}, complete with topknot.
* TheBigGuy: Class 1 and 5, A gruff OldSoldier who's a GeniusBruiser. "I [[LampshadeHanging thought]] he'd be smaller..." notes an intimidated Lion-O.
* BrownEyes
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Panthro gradually [[DefrostingIceKing warms up to]] the Ro-Bear Berbils. When he openly hugs his new friend Ro-Bear Bill, and is witnessed by the team's {{Tagalong Kid}}s, this exchange occurs:
--> '''Wilykat:''' Busted!
--> '''Wilykit:''' Panthro's a big ol' softy!
--> '''Panthro:''' *DeathGlare* Is that a ''problem?''
--> '''Wilykit:''' *stiffens nervously* Nope.
--> '''Wilykat:''' It's cool.
* TheCaptain: A [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] element of his {{backstory}}, seen as a stepping stone on his way to becoming a general.
* ChekhovMIA: Considering his presence in the promotional material and the lying, teasing showrunners, this is no great surprise.
* CoveredWithScars: He has a ''ton'' of scars, presumably from a life of fighting for Thundera.
* DefrostingIceKing: Upon meeting the Ro-Bear Berbils, Panthro immediately announces that he doesn't trust anything this adorable. He is deeply flustered when they heap praise and affection on him after he saves the life of Ro-Bear Bill. When the Berbils show thanks for his help by replacing the Thundertank's engine? Panthro bursts into ManlyTears.
* [[spoiler:DisneyVillainDeath[=/=]NeverFoundTheBody[=/=]NoOneCouldSurviveThat]]
* [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness Dull Eye of Unhappiness]]: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as Panthro has suffered an injury to his right eye, severe enough to [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/9608528030/why-did-you-guys-choose-to-make-pantho-blind-of-one-eye cause glaucoma]] and scar the surrounding flesh.
* EveryScarHasAStory: Panthro [[DiscussedTrope comments]] that there was "a lot of history" in the scars on his arms, which is what he misses the most after [[AnArmAndALeg sacrificing them]] [[spoiler:to trap Grune inside the collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: Thundera is in MedievalStasis and full of SpaceRomans, so why does Panthro sport a {{Samurai}}'s ''sakayaki'' and ''chonmage''? [[RuleOfCool Because he's cool]], that's why.
* {{Expy}}: Basically a furry [[Anime/CowboyBebop Jet.]]
* EyepatchOfPower: Notably [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], Panthro's scarred and damaged eye is unconcealed, but still marks him as a seasoned veteran and {{Badass}}.
* EyesAreUnbreakable: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]: The scar that goes across his eye clearly caused ''some'' damage, as the iris is dull and matte, with no pupil.
* FantasticCasteSystem: A {{flashback}} to his youth shows he used to have a tail, marking him as lower-class, but he is now InexplicablyTailless.
* FightingWithChucks: With sculpted cat claws on the outer end of each stick.
* FourStarBadass: One of Claudus' most trusted generals.
* FurryBaldness: The "baldness" is his grey-blue base coat, while his remaining "hair" is black.
* GeniusBruiser: The real techy of the bunch, a tank who owns and maintains a tank.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Panthro's are typically heroic, relatively neat diagonal slashes: a small "x" mark on the left shoulder, a large gash on the right, and a huge slash across his right pectoral. The vertical scar on his right eye, while neat and aesthetic, is atypical in that it ''doesn't'' leave his eye undamaged.
* HandicappedBadass: His nasty glaucoma doesn't seem to stop him. [[spoiler:Or his lack of arms. One wonders how he plans to drive now, though.]]
** Preview images of upcoming toys suggest [[spoiler:he will be getting a set of cyborg arms]].
* HeroicBuild: Wouldn't be TheBigGuy without it
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With [[EvilFormerFriend Grune]], in {{Flashback}}s. It ended badly.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Young Panthro, your best friend Grune's frequent asides about how the both of you are going to run Thundera someday are not the examples of jocular hyperbole you seem to think they are.
* HotbloodedSideburns: A most prodigious set.
* InexplicablyTailless: In youth he had a tail, but now he doesn't. No word yet as to why, but much [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse speculation]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Developing with his much younger teammates
* KnightInSourArmor[=/=]SourSupporter: Very much a cynic, compared to his youngers, but still joins in the fight.
* MismatchedEyes: Panthro's injured eye is depicted as ranging from a pale brown to pale red in color, in comparison to the deep brown of the uninjured one.
* MythologyGag: His younger self looks almost exactly like his 80's character design (minus the tail, of course.)
* OldSoldier
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: Quite literally, as Grune liberally lathered the DeathNotification with vague {{Half Truth}}s to mask his own betrayal. Also applies [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8539085553/thanks-for-the-follow-ive-been-a-tcats-fan-for out-of-universe]], thanks to blatantly {{Lying Creator}}s.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Sacrifices [[spoiler:both his arms]] to defeat Grune. Damn, man!
* ScarsAreForever: Panthro's racked up a few, all noticeably paler than his fur.
* ScaryBlackMan: Initially for the other Thundercats.
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: He was completely absent from all the official and unofficial trailers. His first proper appearance is saved for the final moments of "Song of The Petalars."
* TheSixthRanger
* SlasherSmile: Gets one of these when he goes head to head with the Conqedor's vehicle, wanting to test out what his new and improved Thundertank is really capable of.
* TheSmartGuy: He's one of the few Thunderians who has a functional knowledge of technology and knows how to operate and repair many different kinds of devices.
* SpikesOfVillainy: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]], Panthro is heroic, but the intimidation factor is there. A nervous Cheetara says "I [[LampshadeHanging thought]] he'd be less spiky."
* [[spoiler:SuperDrowningSkills: He can't swim, though it works to his advantage when he finds an exit hatch after sinking to the bottom of a water-filled chamber.]]
* TankGoodness: Owner and pilot of the Thunder Tank
* TeamDad
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Now if only Lion-O or Tygra (or Cheetara) would follow his lead...
* WartsAndAll: The Thundercats must square with the idea that Panthro is a cynic and a SourSupporter who considers them a RagtagBunchOfMisfits, from whom ''he'' demands respect rather than being automatically loyal to ''them.''
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In a TempleOfDoom Panthro is visibly freaked out when a DeathTrap chamber they're in starts [[spoiler:filling with water, because he can't swim.]]
* XMarksTheHero: One of Panthro's many scars is an x on his left shoulder.

!Cheetara
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cheet_1546.png
-->''Voiced by: EmmanuelleChriqui''

Cheetara is one of Jaga's Clerics. As a Cleric, she's gifted with SuperSpeed. She wields a staff in battle, but is also adept at fighting unarmed.
----
!!Tropes associated with Cheetara:
* ActionGirl
* {{Badass}}: Even more than Lion-O and Tygra.
* BareYourMidriff: Thank-you!
* BoobsOfSteel: being the only adult female in the group.
* TheChampion: Sticks up for Lion-O for ill (defending his brash tactics) and for good (demanding that others be patient and have faith in his potential)
* TheChick: Though a LightningBruiser PraetorianGuard, Cheetara plays the role of "spiritual female peacekeeper" straight as both ''[[GoodShepherd an actual priest]]'' and the group's conflict mediator. Though much of this consists of [[TheChampion championing]] Lion-O, she also occasionally sides with Tygra, once joining him in trying to talk Lion-O down from a vengeful rage, and in another instance, explaining to Lion-O why Tygra is TheResenter.
* ChurchMilitant: A member of Jaga's [[TheOrder Clerics]] - [[PraetorianGuard the Guardians of the Crown]].
* TheEmpath: Cheetara is able to discern presence and the mood of spirits inhabiting the forest of Magi Oar.
* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]]: Cheetara has a tendency to not use her SuperSpeed or Magic Staff's powers, which could allow her to instantly win most fights.
* GoodShepherd: Often serves as Lion-O's counselor
* TheHeart: Motherly and kind, never losing her cool or compassion.
* HotAmazon: She's badass and Lion-O and Tygra have no problem with that.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: [[spoiler: Throughout the first 13 episodes, she unintentionally sends the wrong signals to Lion-O, which both he and Tygra interprets as Cheetara having feelings for him.]]
* IdiotHair: Averted, she has a bit of a cowlick but is otherwise intelligent, save for her [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Powers]] moments.
* IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance[=/=]UnreliableNarrator: As a Cleric, she explains the history of the Book of Omens and the reasons for its being secreted away. Though its clearly what she's been told, it turns out to be fairly inaccurate, as much from poor understanding of the past as her Order's secretive nature.
* KingIncognito: Or rather PraetorianGuard Incognito. In a reversal of Lion-O's circumstances, all she need do is ''remove'' her Cleric's uniform to dutifully shadow the wandering Lion-O without his knowing.
* LadyOfWar
* LastOfHerKind: The SoleSurvivor of her [[TheOrder order]].
* LightningBruiser: She's a better fighter than both Tygra and Lion-O, with the bonus of SuperSpeed.
* LovedINotHonorMore: [[spoiler: She loves Tygra, but for the first thirteen episodes she did not act on her feelings instead preforming her duties as a Cleric to be Lion-O's [[GoodShepherd adviser]], [[PraetorianGuard guard]], and [[UndyingLoyalty loyal supporter]]. Unfortunately this leads to Lion-O thinking she has a BodyguardCrush on him.]]
* [[FriendOrIdolDecision Love or King Decision]]: She had to make a choice between helping Lion-O fight [[spoiler:against Slithe and Addicus while Kanar held Tygra hostage and ready to kill him or surrender, which means they would all likely die. She picks Tygra and throws down her weapon.]]
* MagicKnight: According to her character page on the official website, Jaga's training has made her just as adept at magic as she is at combat.
* MagicStaff: Her new weapon, courtesy of [[spoiler:Viragor]]. Couple this with the above trope and she is bound to be [[RuleOfCool an even more amazing combatant]].
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Towards Lion-O, fueling his crush. [[spoiler: which Lion-O calls her out on. AND she continues doing it after she gets with Tygra.]]
* MementoMacGuffin: The flower she got from Tygra when she was just a little girl and ''still'' carries around. The flower is actually plot and character important, however, as it is revealed that Tygra's act of kindness (without mentioning the nutritive value of the flower's petals) allowed Cheetara to endure her test of patience and ultimately become the woman she is now. [[spoiler: And of course, this is what made Cheetara choose Tygra over Lion-O from the beginning.]]
* MrExposition: When Jaga's unavailable, Cheetara explains things to her fellow Thundercats.
* MsFanservice: Her model sheets show that her top ''does'' zip up all the way to her neck, she just doesn't bother to do it. You baaaaad kitty.
** She also gets a little bit of MaleGaze (though only with the camera so far).
** Doesn't hurt that she's voiced by a very deserving [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuelle_Chriqui former AskMen.com Most Desirable Woman]].
* MulticoloredHair: A PowerBlonde with dark brown spotting.
* MysteriousProtector: To Lion-O, quietly shadowing him as he sneaks off to Thundera's slums, stepping in only when he's headlocked by one more mugger than he can handle, and popping up again when he needs help against an AngryMob.
* ObliviousToLove: If she knows about either of the brothers' feelings, (or their [[SiblingTriangle active conflict]]) she ain't saying. [[spoiler:In Episode 13, it's revealed that she returns Tygra's feelings, but never had the chance to tell him until now.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: One of the reasons she became a Cleric is because she had no family to turn to.
* {{Protectorate}}: Lion-O, naturally.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], Cheetara is established good from the start, despite her eye color.
* RetractableWeapon: Cheetara's SimpleStaff retracts for easy storage.
* SexyMentor: Lion-O's mind tends to be... ''elsewhere'' when Cheetara is providing guidance.
* SexyPriest: Tygra even [[TheCharmer tips her a wink]] when she's sporting her vestments, a FullBodyDisguise that leaves only her ''eyes'' visible. [[JustifiedTrope Justified because Tygra probably knew it was Cheetara based solely on her eyes.]]
* ShonenUpgrade: After her [[WeaponOfChoice staff]] gets broken, she receives a replacement made from the wood of a magical forest.
* SimpleStaff: Her weapon, along with her fellow Clerics.
* StatuesqueStunner: Consistently shown to be ''taller'' than Lion-O '''and''' Tygra, and until Panthro joined she was ''the'' tallest member of the Pride.
* SuperReflexes: Part of her SuperSpeed. Cheetara uses it to get through a room of whirling blades in a TempleOfDoom.
* SuperSpeed: And apparently, without the handicap of the original Cheetara. Prone to ForgotAboutHisPowers though.
* TeamMom: Yeah, still.
* UndyingLoyalty: So far, she is the only Thundercat to have complete faith in Lion-O. [[spoiler: It shows when her eyes glow when Lion-O calls "THUNDERCATS HOOOO!"]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Her Cleric's SimpleStaff. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when it gets broken: "I ''loved'' that staff!" Later gets a MagicStaff.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: Lion-O delivers one to her in "New Alliances" for (albeit unintentionally) leading him on.]]
* WreckedWeapon: Loses her Cleric's staff when it breaks in the jaws of Viragor.

!The Thunderkittens
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wily_130.png
-->''Voiced by: Madeleine Hall (Wilykit) and Eamon Pirruccello (Wilykat)''

The Thunderkittens Wilykit and Wilykat start out as homeless pickpockets and beggars living in the slums. After the destruction of Thundera leaves them with nowhere else to go, they elect to tag along with Lion-O's party, for better or for worse.
----
!!Tropes associated with the Thunderkittens:
* TheArtfulDodger: Though they both dream of wealth and comfort, they're generally remarkably good at surviving Thundera's slums with a cheerful outlook and an arsenal of tricks.
* BadassAdorable: Amongst their feats, the Thunderkittens have outwitted a [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giant]] by dosing themselves with a fruit that induces CaffeineBulletTime and leading him straight into carefully laid tripwire.
* BareYourMidriff: Wilykit. Since her age is in the single digits, the usual FanService is ([[LolitaComplex hopefully]]) averted.
* BigEater: They can eat a LOT.
* BrotherSisterTeam
* CatSmile: Other than Snarf they're the only ones who do it.
* [[CheerfulChild Cheerful Children]]: They're remarkably optimistic, despite having grown up in the slums of TheEmpire.
* CuteKitten[=/=]DeliberatelyCuteChild: They purposely [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this to convince Lion-O to take them along, CatSmile, FauxPaw and cute meowing included. In general, they overplay their cuteness to manipulate others.
* DelinquentHair: Wilykit's purple SkunkStripe
* EarsAsHair: By WordOfGod, most of what was previously believed to be their hair is, in fact, ''[[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8435103220/i-first-saw-thundercats-on-toonami-when-i-was-young their ears]]''. Yes, this means that Wilykit [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wileykitears_1440.jpg ties hers back]].
* FantasticCasteSystem: WordOfGod [[http://crewofomens.tumblr.com/post/8435103220/i-first-saw-thundercats-on-toonami-when-i-was-young states]] there are two types of cat-people in Thundera, those who don't have tails and those who do. Those who don't are Thundera's elite, those who do are consigned to poverty. The Thunderkittens, having tails, are introduced as {{Artful Dodger}}s in Thundera's slums.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Wilykit's outfit lacks a sleeve, and both twins wear only one...
* [[FingerlessGloves Fingerless Glove]]
* FiveFingerDiscount: How the twins survive in the slums.
* GenreSavvy:
** Employ ObfuscatingStupidity against a [[{{Fishmen}} Fish Man]] who plans to eat them, just so they can get a free meal while he "stuffs" them.
** Also, when the Thundercats were facing a BoobyTrap [[SpikesOfDoom spike pit]] already triggered by using [[NeedleInAStackOfNeedles a wrong key]] in a LockAndKeyPuzzle, they shrugged off the problem and, StatingTheSimpleSolution, [[spoiler:opened the door by ''picking the lock.'']]
* GrapplingHookPistol[=/=]RazorFloss[=/=]VariableLengthChain: Wilykat has a primative version of a grappling hook pistol in his flink, a thin cord with a small grapple on the end, attached to a reel.
* HazelEyes
* HoverBoard: The kittens are eventually given a pair by the Ro-Bear Berbils.
* IdiotBall: Normally WiseBeyondTheirYears, GenreSavvy Kit [[spoiler: ruins the Thundercats' ambush to save the Elephants by yelling at the bad guys to [[WhatAnIdiot leave them alone.]]]]
* IdiotHair: Wilykat has a high-standing forelock
* InfantImmortality: They start the series by being two of the few survivors of Thundera, right after an emergency shelter was destroyed, killing everyone inside.
* KidAppealCharacter: A combination of types 1 and 3, Clowns and Ankle-biters. As {{Artful Dodger}}s, teasing, trickery, pranks and theft are their forms of attack.
* LittleMissConArtist: Wilykit, in her role as a ...
* MagicalFlautist: Posing as an innocuous StreetMusician, Wilykit uses her flute music to put people [[MagicMusic into a trance]] while her brother steals from them.
* MulticoloredHair: Wilykat's is white and light brown with a dark brown [[IdiotHair high forelock]]. Wilykit's is red with a purple SkunkStripe.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Dressed in beggars' rags, the Thunderkittens must steal new clothes from some pillaging Lizards, which are modeled after their original series' outfits.
* NonIdenticalTwins: Avoid being HalfIdenticalTwins purely through their different coloring and slightly different builds.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: They're well aware that the Fish Man cook was stuffing them to later kill and cook them, they were just playing dumb to get a good meal out of it before making their escape.
* PluckyComicRelief: Share this role with Snarf.
* TheRunaway: a particular case in that the two kittens had a loving family. [[spoiler:They left their home because their mother hadn't enough food for everyone, which included two other unnamed siblings, after the father's death.]]
* TheRoper: Wilykat flags down [[TheMark marks]] to pitch his sister's music to.
* StickyFingers: They may usually be GenreSavvy, but when they see [[SchmuckBait gold]] in a TempleOfDoom, they just can't help themselves.
* StreetMusician[=/=]WanderingMinstrel: Outside of her con-artistry, Wilykit is perfectly adept at playing her flute recreationally, amusing herself in Thundera's ruins and "playing off" the Petalars as they bid the Thundercats a happy goodbye.
* {{Street Urchin}}s: Rudely referred to as such by a LowerclassLout they promptly rob blind. In their less savvy days, they did indeed fit the description.
* TagalongKid: Both of them.
* ThemeTwinNaming: Of the one-letter difference variety.
* TomboyishPonytail: Wilykit, to go along with her tomboyish voice.
* TreasureMap: The twins are looking for a map to [[CityOfGold El Dara, a city full of treasure]].
* TricksterTwins: Experienced shysters both.
* UndyingLoyalty: Kit is extremely loyal to Lion-o to the point of refusing to believe he was truly gone.
* YouLeaveHimAlone: Wilykit - "No one touches my friend!"
* WeaponOfChoice: Wilykit has her flute, Wilykat his flink
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: When sugar-high. It makes them look positively manic.
* {{Xenophone}}: Wilykit's flute is a white ring-shaped device.

!Pumyra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pumyra_6163.jpg
-->''Voiced by: Pamela Adlon''
A refugee forced to fight as a gladiator in a city of dogs. She is initially very hostile towards Lion-O but is slowly warming up to him.
----
!!Tropes associated with Pumyra:
* ActionGirl
* TheArcher: Wears a wrist-mounted, collapsible crossbow from which she fires small pellets with incredible accuracy, and enough force to push back an opponent when [[MultiShot fired in a barrage]].
* AscendedExtra: One of the least-developed characters in the old show, the producers have confirmed that she plays a bigger part this time and has multiple episodes written around her.
* BigOlEyebrows: They actually wrap around her face and connect to her facial markings to form...
** HotBloodedSideburns
* BrokenBird: Has some shades of this, if her initial reaction to Lion-O in "The Pit" and her rage at her former captors in "The Curse of Ratilla" is anything to go by. Subverted, however, in that she seems to be getting better through her interactions with Lion-O.
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: She gets Lion-O captured when he tries to sneak her out because she (loudly) insists he get away from her.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Inverted. ''She's'' the one who defeats Lion-O, but he wins her over specifically because he refused to fight against his own kind.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: More than the other cats, anyway. She doesn't even wear the spat-like thingies other cats have.
** FootFocus: Twice in as many episodes they've included close-ups of her ankles.
* EraSpecificPersonality: Her 80's incarnation was a TechnicalPacifist and much more of a FlatCharacter compared to the other 'Cats. [[HotBlooded This]] [[TheArcher version]] [[RevengeBeforeReason of]] [[BrokenBird her]], well... not so much.
* HotBlooded: She's taken over this role from Lion-O.
* ImprobableAimingSkills
* MadeASlave: She started out in Ratar-O's mining pit, but was eventually sold as a fighter for the Pit.
* TheMedic: She's seen tending to Lion-O's wounds after they're freed. Granted, she ''inflicted'' those wounds...
* MiniDressOfPower
* MsFanservice: Much more fanservicey than her 80's counterpart.
* MultiShot.
* NeverMyFault: She has a bad tendency to blame Lion-O for ''everything'', including things that actually her fault. The end of "Birth of Blades" suggests she may be aware of this and get better.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Her resentment-induced rage toward Lion-O alerts the guards and gets them both roped into a death match when she could have escaped with him, and ''then'' she berates him. Later she abandons their plan to rescue the Thunderan captives to attack a rat who was beating a slave.
* ShesGotLegs: Does she ever, emphasized by her miniskirt and a garter that her bolo hangs onto.
* ShipTease: When Lion-O tells her about [[spoiler: how he's come to terms with the resolution of]] the LoveTriangle between him, Cheetara, and Tygra, Pumyra's got this little gem:
-->'''Pumyra:''' (Looking at him with a playful smirk) "Maybe it's time you move on to someone else." (Cue flustered double-take by Lion-O).
** Which is lampshaded a few seconds later by an irritated Panthro:
--->'''Panthro:''' "Enough ''flirting;'' let's do something about those slaves."
** Another example comes at the end of "Birth of the Blades:" [[spoiler: after Lion-O saves her from Mumm-Ra, she apologizes for how harsh she's been to him, promising her UndyingLoyalty. When he insists that she [[DoNotCallMeSir call him by name]], she agrees while gently caressing his face.]]
* SixthRanger
* SuperWristGadget: The gauntlet on her left wrist contains a collapsible crossbow, her primary weapon of choice.
* TomboyishPonytail: Combined with...
** TomboyishSidetails
* TrickArrow: The pellets she uses as ammo for her crossbow boast a wide array of armaments aside from the simple metal bearings, including explosives.
* TryingNotToCry: She almost breaks down during her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Lion-O, the first hint that there's something more under all her anger and bitterness.
* {{Tsundere}}: ''Holy crap.'' She's ready to ''kill'' Lion-O until she understands that he didn't just abandon his people and has not only been fighting as hard as anyone else against Mumm-Ra, but would lay down his life for any of the cats. Afterwards, she warms up to him, even bandaging his wounds, and spends the next episode alternating between sparring and ''flirting'' with him.
** "The Birth of the Blades" shows this aspect of her character even more. Pumyra berates Lion-O throughout the episode for failing to save his people when they were enslaved by the Rats, and also calls him out on some of his more reckless-seeming tactics even when they work. After fending off Kaynar and Atticus, and [[spoiler: saving Pumyra after she is captured by Mumm-Ra, at the cost of losing the Sword of Plundarr]], Pumyra softly praises Lion-O for his actions and berates herself for her lack of faith.
* UndyingLoyalty: Pledges this to Lion-O in "Birth of the Blades" after he repeatedly saves her even at cost to himself.
* WeaponOfChoice: A bola and wrist-mounted crossbow, essentially splitting her primary weapon from the original series in two.
** As seen in "The Curse of Ratilla," she also has a small dagger sheathed to the back of her hips for close-quarters action.
* WhatTheHellHero: She calls Lion-O out on leaving Thundera's survivors leaderless.
* WhenSheSmiles: Her voice softens as well, taking on a rather lovely purr. Goes well in hand with her being a {{Tsundere}}.

!Snarf
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Thundercats-2011-Snarf-Style-Sheet-1_1308313706_1626.jpg
--> ''Voiced by: SatomiKoorogi''

Snarf is Lion-O's loyal pet and, unlike his previous incarnation, does not speak. [[hottip:*: Nor does he act like a neurotic 70 year old nanny.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Snarf:
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Clearly comprehends speech, enough to become frightened when an enemy proposes that Lion-O DuelToTheDeath.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: The two-minute short "Snarf: Butterfly Blues" sees Snarf frantically protecting an infant Lion-O from danger as he obliviously chases a butterfly.
* ButtMonkey: The more things change the more they stay the same.
* CastingGag: Snarf has [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap transformed]] from the [[{{Thundercats}} original]]'s TalkingAnimal NonHumanSidekick with a VerbalTic to a TeamPet who can only PokemonSpeak. His voice actress is SatomiKoorogi, who voiced Togepi and Pichu in the anime of ''[[{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]''.
* TheConfidant: Lion-O freely [[SurrogateSoliloquy expresses insecurities]] to Snarf that he won't to his family. Snarf [[EmpathyPet does his best]] to lend an ear.
* EmpathyPet[=/=]LoyalAnimalCompanion: For Lion-O, who uses him as sounding board for his issues, and frequently for the Thunderkittens. If "Snarf: Butterflies Blues" is any indication, Snarf has been by Lion-O's side since the prince was a baby.
* EvilDetectingDog: Snarf knows well before Lion-O that the Duelist is [[ObviouslyEvil bad news]]. [[spoiler:He also freaks out over a crow cawing at them at the entrance to the Swordsmans' town. What did Mumm-Ra turn into?]]
* GreenEyes: Yellow green, fully AnimalEyes, in contrast to Cats' visible white sclera
* GrewASpine: Snarf seemed to be nothing but a LovableCoward, unlike his original series counterpart who was annoying but helpful. As of episode 9 he's upgraded to NotSoHarmless status.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Snarf is a domestic cat crossed with one very specific, [[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit bat-eared feline dragon]].
* NearlyNormalAnimal: Level 2, Mostly Normal. Has covered his eyes in terror, razzed himself in a mirror, and (poorly) mimicked Lion-O's fighting style with a stick. Has also gasped and shaken his head vigorously, mouth shut, while making a "''noonoo''" noise on hearing that Lion-o is to DuelToTheDeath.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: His 2011 redesign is this. Fans are already demanding plushies.
* PokemonSpeak: He often utters "Snarf" in between animal noises, as a MythologyGag to the original's VerbalTic.
* ShoutOut: As with the original, his design is a SuperDeformed tribute to RankinBass' version of [[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit Smaug]]. Paradoxically, the resemblance is greater ''[[http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/File:Rankin-Bass%27_Smaug.jpg now]],'' with Snarf's feline features increased.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl
* TeamPet
* TheUnintelligible: He does not speak, but Lion-O appears to understand him just fine. [[hottip:*:By WordOfGod [[http://www.digitalmonkeybox.com/wondercon_2011_thundercats.htm this dynamic]] is a ShoutOut to Chewbacca and Han Solo, or R2-D2 and Luke of ''StarWars'']]
* VerbalTicName: "Snaaaarrrrf!"

!Jaga
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jaga2011bio_3385.png
-->''Voiced by: CoreyBurton''

Head of Thundera's Cleric warriors before [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to ensure Lion-O and his group escape.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Jaga:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Wears a breastplate beneath his PimpedOutCape, huge [[ShouldersOfDoom pauldrons]] atop it, and a [[CoolHelmet spiked helm]].
* BadassBeard[=/=]WizardBeard
* BadassGrandpa: Fully capable of dispatching a WalkingTank on his own.
* BadassMustache
* BattleCry: "[[ChurchMilitant Clerics]], to the death."
* ChurchMilitant: Head of his Clerics, the Guardians of the Crown
* TheConfidant: Deftly convinces Lion-O to admit to having a vision, but decides that the details can wait.
* CoolHelmet: Breaks with the uniform of his Clerics, wearing a nicely spiked metal helm ornamented with a gem.
* CoolOldGuy
* CourtMage
* CozyVoiceForCatastrophes: In his OpeningMonologue, Jaga describes the ''necessity'' of Thundera's doom in an almost reassuringly pleasant tone.
* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]
* TheFatalist: Takes this tack particularly in his OpeningMonologue:
-->'''Jaga:''' ...and though omens foretold in the book would be ignored, the tragedy to come was ''necessary''.
** He also speaks with prophetic certainty where Lion-O is concerned: informing him that the Book of Omens predicted that Thundera's greatest king would have "[[{{Precognition}} sight beyond sight]]," because he's well aware Lion-O has had a vision.
* GoodShepherd: Offers guidance and encouragement to Lion-O.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Attempts one to buy time for Lion-O and the others to escape. Except it's soundly averted, as the next episode he is sucked into a lantern making him look like the original ghost form he had.]]
** [[spoiler: He sacrifices himself again, later, making use of the fact that Mumm-Ra sealed him in a ''[[WeakenedByTheLight lantern]].'']]
* KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge: His Kingdom and his King only ''believe'' in the Book of Omens and think it lost, so much so, they sent their best generals questing for years. Not only does he ''know'' it exists, he's always known [[spoiler: its ''exact location.'']]
* MagicKnight
* [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard]]
* MidnightBlueEyes
* MisterExposition: He narrates the OpeningMonologue and regularly explains things for Lion-O and the viewer.
* TheObiWan: Fairly standard as the old mentor/quest giver.
* OldMaster: Quite impressive on the field of battle.
* OldRetainer: "Be easy on [Lion-O], Claudus. Remember when you were his age, your father wasn't always pleased with you either."
* ParentalSubstitute:
** Has this kind of dynamic with Lion-O, defending him to Claudus, often being there with advice and support where Claudus is very much not.
** {{Flashback}}s show he's this towards an orphaned Cheetara as well.
* PimpedOutCape: Moreso than his King, surprisingly
* [[spoiler:SealedGoodInACan: He is sealed into a magical lantern that forces him to reveal the location of the Book of Omens...Although he does manage to lead Mumm-Ra's mooks around in circles for a time]]
* SecretSecretKeeper: Is fully aware that Lion-O saw a vision in the Sword of Omens, and offhandedly mentions the existence of "[[{{Precognition}} Sight Beyond Sight]]" while convincing Lion-O to confide in him. Unfortunately, he decides to let Lion-O get back to a party and hear him out later.
* [[spoiler: SenselessSacrifice: In his YouShallNotPass he buys them all of five seconds. A rock wall blocks the path right as he's blasted, so he could have easily gotten away despite his earlier injury.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: Tremendous white rounded pauldrons, with grey accents and gold edging, in common with his Clerics.
* [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation]]: Briefly, in an interesting example of toying with audience expectations.
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor[=/=]VirtualGhost]]: Tells Lion-O what there is to know about the Book of Omens.
* StaffOfAuthority: His crosier, which he uses to [[PowerGlows power up]] Lion-O's Claw Gauntlet.
* SuperSpeed
* UnreliableNarrator: His OpeningMonologue is shot through with {{Half Truth}}s, neglecting to mention that Third Earth's "peace and prosperity" belongs solely to Thundera's upperclass Cats, or that the ruler's "just heart" does not extend to [[FantasticRacism other species]].
* [[spoiler:YouShallNotPass: After the fall of the city, Jaga stays behind to give Lion-O, Tygra, and Cheetara a few more minutes to escape.]]

!Claudus
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/473px-Claudus2011bio_5373.png
-->''Voiced by: Larry Kenney''

Lion-O's father and adoptive father to Tygra; he is murdered during TheSiege of Thundera.
----
!!Tropes associated with Claudus:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: Part of his RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* ActorAllusion: Larry Kenney (the original voice of Lion-O from the '85 cartoon) tells Lion-O to let him show off what the Sword of Omens can do "in the proper hands." Jaga [[LampshadeHanging mentions]] that Claudus was much like Lion-O himself in his youth and Claudus gets to do the rallying cry one last time.
* AlmostDeadGuy: Has just enough time to say his last words.
* AncestralWeapon: His Sword of Omens
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Wields an AncestralWeapon that OnlyTheChosenMayWield, and has a mane and eyes that match its own coloring.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Can easily mow down multiple Lizards in a single swing.
* BadassBeard
* BadassCape: Black and billowy, particularly during sword fights.
* BadassMustache
* BigGood[=/=]TheGoodKing: For a given value of good.
* CoolChair: Has a high-backed golden throne with cat's head armrests and royal blue cushions, which Mumm-Ra later sees fit to commandeer.
* CoolSword: The Sword Of Omens
* DeathByOriginStory: Is assassinated by Mumm-Ra during TheSiege, shaping Lion-O's personal drive to defeat Mumm-Ra.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Affects this attitude during his son Lion-O's RiteOfPassage, testing his swordsmanship skills while [[ThisIsSparta bellowing]] an oral history of their people.
* TheEmperor: King of Thundera.
* EtTuBrute: Poor Claudus gets this ''twice''. First his most trusted general helps his enemies destroy his city. Then he's stabbed InTheBack, [[spoiler:after rescuing his other trusted general Panthro from capture. As soon as Lion-O asks "[[LampshadeHanging You, a traitor too]], Panthro?!" the second betrayal is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]], and Panthro is revealed as Mumm-Ra in disguise.]]
* EveryDeviceIsASwissArmyKnife: His Claw Gauntlet does triple duty as scabbard, gauntlet and buckler.
* FamousLastWords: "No matter what happens, you've made me proud today."
* FantasticRacism: Harbors a great deal of this towards 'lesser species' like the Lizards.
* FantasyForbiddingFather: To Lion-O, over his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} hobbies and peculiar ideas about Lizards being persecuted.
* FieryRedHead
* FollowInMyFootsteps: Claudus is the stern father to Lion-O who can't understand why his youngest son is so different from his older adoptive brother Tygra and himself.
* GenreBlindness: We've got a classic fantasy society and a plucky not really grown up prince. All standard fantasy openers at this point demand the death of the king.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His neat, horizontal scar across the bridge of his nose
* HeroesPreferSwords
* HeroicBuild: Arms like tree trunks, this one.
* KnightTemplar: To the hilt. He finds the idea of protecting stockaded Lizards from being lynched rather incredible.
* LargeAndInCharge
* GoodIsNotNice: ShiningCity. BrightCastle. TheGoodKing. NobleBigot. KnightTemplar.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Out-of-universe, it's not so much that Lion-O's outfit resembles his as his outfit resembles Lion-O's... [[CastingGag for obvious reasons]].
* NobleBigot: Seriously, a Lizard lynching builds solidarity, but he'll humor his kid and pardon some prisoners just this once.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, like, his son, part of his AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance.
* ParentalFavoritism: Favors TheDutifulSon, Lion-O's adoptive brother Tygra, even asking him "[[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent Why couldn't [Lion-O] be more like you?]]"
* ThePatriarch: An old-fashioned, fairly inflexible father figure.
* {{Protectorate}}: Thundera and the Cats, at the expense of other Animals.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: A very old-school Thunderian who prefers rule by the sword to engendering mutual understanding with other species. Needless to say, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero this backfires horribly]].
* PunnyName: Claudus rules with "a just heart and razor ''claw''," and has a name one letter away from [[{{Hamlet}} Claudius]], which is easy {{foreshadowing}}.
* RedHeadedHero
* RemakeCameo: Lion-O's father Claudus is voiced by Larry Kenney, the [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}} original series]]' Lion-O.
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Claudus sports a small gold wreath-style diadem as a crown, [[ShouldersOfDoom huge, elaborate pauldrons]], a BadassCape, [[TwentyFourHourArmor full cuirass]] and a large [[ChestInsignia belt-mounted]] cabochon.
* RetractableWeapon: The Sword of Omens retracts to dagger length for stowing inside it's scabbard, Claudus' Claw Gauntlet.
* RoyalBlood
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: A terror on the battlefield.
* SacrificialLion: Does not survive TheSiege.
* ShouldersOfDoom: The most intimidating aspect of his relatively understated RequisiteRoyalRegalia, a set of huge, black and silver dual-layered pauldrons that match his BadassCape.
* SoProudOfYou: His last words, directed at Lion-O.
* TroubledSympatheticBigot: Never understands the wrongheadedness of his views, but genuinely wants his [[TheUnfavorite unfavorite]] son Lion-O to be a good king, and wrestles with the idea that his son has rebelled [[CulturalRebel against his culture]] of FantasticRacism while having GrewASpine just as Claudus had hoped. This dissonance leads him to agree to pardon two Lizards that Lion-O has defended from an AngryMob.
* VikingFuneral: Claudus has a funeral pyre below the ruins of his monument.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: All he does, he does in the name of protecting his people.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: "Why couldn't [Lion-O] be more like you, Tygra?"

-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

A general of Thundera's army. Despite being blind, Lynx-O stands guard at the watch tower and uses his heightened senses to detect any danger that approaches the kingdom.
----
!!Tropes associated with Lynx-O:
* DisabilitySuperpower: Though blind, Lynx-O [[TheNoseKnows detects the scent]] of an invading Lizard army that's just out of sight of his fellow sentries.
* FourStarBadass: He became the General of the Thundarian Army.
* MartialArtsHeadband
* MilkyWhiteEyes: Due to his blindness.
* MultiethnicName: Like Lion-O, the "-O" suffix of his name seems to be a reference to the "ō" in Japanese names and titles meaning "king."

!Mumm-Ra
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thuncats_mumra_174x252_b_1759.png
-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

Mumm-Ra was the ancient foe of Thundercats, long ago defeated. Resurfacing, Mumm-Ra masterminded Thundera's downfall to obtain the Eye of Thundera, the jewel within the Sword of Omens' hilt.
----
!!Tropes associated with Mumm-Ra:
* AdaptationalBadass: The original's sedentary {{Mummy}} playing OrcusOnHisThrone is not in evidence here. SquishyWizard he may be, but Mumm-Ra makes his debut with an impressive act of regicide, followed up with the [[OneHitKill slaughter]] of Claudus' PraetorianGuard, all without breaking a sweat ''or'' breaking out the OneWingedAngel.
* AdaptiveArmor: [[spoiler:Using [[PowerCrystal Power Crystals]] as [[AmplifierArtifact Amplifier Artifacts]], his Gauntlet can transform into a set of custom skeletal armor.]]
* AgonyBeam: In his OneWingedAngel form, he employs this on Lion-O with intent to kill.
* {{Archenemy}}: To the Thundercats.
* [[spoiler:BatOutOfHell]][=/=]WingedHumanoid: In his OneWingedAngel form
* BigBad
* BreathWeapon: In his OneWingedAngel form, Mumm-Ra can breathe hot pink PureEnergy blasts.
* BrokenPedestal: Mumm-Ra became this for [[spoiler:his tactician Leo]] in the backstory when he [[spoiler:destroyed a solar system populated by billions to forge the Sword of Plundaar.]] This was what convinced [[spoiler:Leo that Mumm-Ra had to stopped.]]
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull[=/=]TransformationNameAnnouncement: (Villain variant) "Ancient Spirits of Evil, transform this decayed form into Mumm-Ra, the THE EVERRRR-LIIIVIIIIING!!!" triggers Mumm-Ra's TransformationSequence into his secondary OneWingedAngel form.
* CardCarryingVillain: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in a very literal sense, as Mumm-Ra must call upon "Ancient Spirits of Evil" to grant him access to his OneWingedAngel Form.
* [[spoiler:CommandingCoolness: Pre-{{Gotterdammerung}}, Mumm-Ra was the Commander of a SpaceNavy that took the Eye of Thundera as {{Plunder}}, and counted ''Thundercats'' among his underlings.]]
* [[spoiler:CoolSword[=/=]DoubleWeapon: His Sword of Plun-Darr]]
* DarkIsEvil: Though Mumm-Ra himself is colored grey, his [[TankGoodness tank]] and any weaponry or armor he uses are black, and chased with TronLines.
* TheDreaded: Even as an artifact of history, his reputation precedes him. His first spoken line, wherein he [[BadassBoast refers to himself]] completely without irony as being "[a thing] of your worst nightmares," suggests he is perfectly happy to [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] this.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When describing Addicus and Kanar to Slithe, he says the two have committed crimes even he wouldn't do.
** [[SubvertedTrope Of course, he then sends Slithe to hire them, anyway... ]]
** Not to mention when you're willing to [[spoiler: wipe out ''billions of lives'' just to create an InfinityPlusOneSword]], you've pretty much crossed the MoralEventHorizon.
* EvilBrit: On an alien planet, no less.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[spoiler: Thinks nothing of Leo and Panthera's shock that he would wipe out billions of lives in a galaxy just to create a sword.]] He mocks Lion-O for trying to save Pumyra rather than try to escape with the Sword of Plun-Darr:
-->'''Mumm-Ra:''' "Generations pass, and your species is still weakened by emotion!"
* EvilIsHammy: ''THEEE EVERRRR-LIIIIIIIIIVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!''
* EvilOldFolks: Not only is he Really700YearsOld, he looks it.
* FangsAreEvil
* HumanoidAbomination: Peculiarly, Mumm-Ra resembles nothing so much as an inexplicably red-eyed, fanged, snub-nosed, grey [[HumansAreCthulhu human]] in {{Mummy}} wrappings. [[spoiler:However, his OneWingedAngel form explains the snub nose and makes his species explicit: He's a leaf-nosed (Vampire) [[BatOutOfHell bat]].]]
** The artists get bonus points for just having his Mummy form move in a subtly WRONG way.
* InTheHood: Mumm-Ra always wears a long, trailing, tattered red cloak with the hood concealing much of his face.
* KamehameHadoken: Quite capably kills most of the Clerics in [[OneHitKill a single blow]].
* LargeAndInCharge: In his OneWingedAngel form, he ''towers'' over the Cats.
* LivingRelic[=/=]TimeAbyss: Mumm-Ra has been around for a ''very'' long time. [[spoiler:He predates the colonization of Third Earth.]]
* TheMagnificent: The '''EVER-LIVING!'''
* TheManBehindTheCurtain: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] TheDreaded ancient enemy of the Thundercats is a small, stooped, old, emaciated...red-eyed EvilSorcerer and ''HumanoidAbomination.'' His physical frailty only serves to make him more disturbing.
** And then he transforms and the Thundercats get their butts handed to them.
* MasterOfIllusion[=/=]MasterOfDisguise: We first see him use it to [[spoiler: disguise himself as Panthro.]]
* MeaningfulName[=/=]MultiethnicName[=/=]PunnyName: Derived from the English word "mummy," and ''Ra'' the ancient Egyptian ''sun'' god.
* MindRape: The interrogation variety is one of Mumm-Ra's specialties, [[spoiler: Though Jaga screams, he doesn't yield the information Mumm-Ra seeks.]].
* MiniatureSeniorCitizen[=/=]MisterBig: In his ShapeshifterDefaultForm, Mumm-Ra is quite short and stooped, but no less intimidating.
* MobileMenace: Gets around in a [[TankGoodness tank]], the Storm Charger, when it suits him.
* {{Mummy}}: With all the standard trappings, and some decidedly nonstandard, like a techno-pyramid.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Mumm-Ra is a *deep breath* {{mummy}}[=/=]{{lich}} [[spoiler:vampire bat ''alien from space''.]] Who lives in a pyramid [[spoiler:''spaceship'']] and rides around in a tank [[spoiler:that's a coffin]]. Amazing, no?
* NonHumanUndead[=/=]OurLichesAreDifferent: His concept also borrows heavily from Lich iconography. Most don't have awesome tanks, though.
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:He destroyed an entire galaxy, with three planets populated by billions of people, to create the material that would become the Sword of Plun-Darr and its gauntlet.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Appropriately enough, [[WingedHumanoid has wings]].
* OutsideContextVillain: Became this over the centuries as memory of him faded away into legend and superstition.
* [[spoiler:RavensAndCrows]]: Mumm-Ra's desperation form, which he uses to flee after coming too close to defeat at the hands of the Thundercats, and for stealth purposes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Played absolutely straight, even [[LiteralMetaphor literally]], as his first appearance ''is'' his eyes, seen in a [[{{seers}} vision]] sent by the Sword of Omens.
* SadisticChoice: When he fights Lion-O in the Mountain of Plun-Darr to retrieve the sword of the same name, he threatens Pumyra by throwing her into a chasm, forcing Lion-O to choose: Grab the Sword of Plun-Darr before Mumm-Ra can, or rescue his fellow cat?
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan]]: Complete with creepy CompellingVoice and a commanding [[spoiler:"''Release me!''"]]
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: A slight-framed HumanoidAbomination in {{Mummy}}-wrappings and a large cloak.
* [[spoiler:SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Mumm-Ra's AdaptiveArmor has a skeletal motif]]
* SorcerousOverlord: An EvilSorceror and an EvilOverlord
* SquishyWizard: [[SubvertedTrope Only]] in his ShapeshifterDefaultForm. Beware when he busts out his ByThePowerOfGreyskull.
* [[spoiler:SufficientlyAdvancedAlien[=/=]WizardsFromOuterSpace:]] Otherworldly magic powers have to come from ''somewhere''...
* TakeOverTheWorld: But of course!
* TankGoodness: His Storm Charger [[spoiler:made of the face of his sarcophagus]]
* TentacleRope[=/=]VariableLengthChain: He can use his bandages to ensnare an opponent and lift them clear off of the ground.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: "Ancient Spirits of Evil... [[TransformationSequence transform]] this decayed form, into Mumm-Ra... '''THE EVERRRR-LIIIVIIIIING'''"
* TransformationSequence: Mumm-Ra's [[OneWingedAngel Ever-living]] transformation sequence, triggered by his ByThePowerOfGreyskull, is seen rather infrequently.
* VaderBreath: Is exceptionally wheezy, [[spoiler: especially when he first wakes up.]]
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Has a ShapeshifterDefaultForm, a OneWingedAngel form, general MasterOfDisguise[=/=]MasterOfIllusion powers, and a desperation form for quick escapes.
* [[spoiler:WeakenedByTheLight: In "Omens Part 2", sunlight interrupts him as he begins of his TransformationSequence and singes him a bit before he staggers back indoors.]]
** In "Journey to the Tower of Omens" [[spoiler:Mumm-Ra is forced to flee after Jaga's HeroicSacrifice via a powerful light spell, and Mumm-Ra ''was already in his true form when it happened''.]]
* [[spoiler:WeaponOfChoice: The Sword of Plun-Darr, as witnessed in "Legacy." And, as the EvilCounterpart to the Sword of Omens, it, too, can shrink down to fit inside his own Gauntlet. [[ShapeShifterWeapon Oh, and it can extend from a single-bladed sword to a double-bladed one.]] ]]

!Grune
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/032-ThunderCats-2011-Grune-the-Betrayer_2797.jpg
-->''Voiced by: ClancyBrown''

Grune is one of Claudus' trusted generals, sent with Panthro to find the Book of Omens. However, motivated by his ambition for power, Grune allied himself with the Lizards and Mumm-Ra.
----
!!Tropes associated with Grune:
* TwentyFourHourArmor: The only time he takes off his armor is to swap it for a new set.
* ArchEnemy: To Panthro.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: While not a {{Bishonen}} like the series' protagonists, he's certainly more handsome in this version.
* AffablyEvil: Until his FaceHeelTurn, his long friendship with Panthro isn't an act in the slightest, and his offer that WeCanRuleTogether is perfectly sincere. He also appears to genuinely enjoy Tygra's company and admire him for their common traits, even enthusiastically training him in swordfighting as a boy.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Grune's motivation for his FaceHeelTurn, underscored repeatedly during Panthro's {{Flashback}}s.
--> '''Panthro''', ''after Grune expresses a desire to rule Thundera'': [[FantasticCasteSystem You planning on becoming a lion]]?
--> '''Grune''': No, I'm planning on becoming ''[[TheUsurper king]]''.
* AscendedExtra: Was a minor, though [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular]], villain in the original series, only appearing in a couple episodes. This version is Mumm-Ra's [[TheDragon right-hand man]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He may run from fights he can't win, but the ones he ''has'' won include killing a giant spider many times his size.
* BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil: An expansive version.
* BearerOfBadNews: With a [[HeDidntMakeIt headshake]], and melancholic praise for his skill in battle, Grune [[DeathNotification informs Claudus of Panthro's death]] and hands over Panthro's [[TragicKeepsake nunchucks]].
* BrownEyes
* TheCaptain: As with Panthro, a [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] element of his {{backstory}}, seen as a stepping stone on his way to becoming a general.
* CarryABigStick: A big freaking mace [[hottip:*: which appears to be a Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanab%C5%8D kanabo]].]] that turns into a [[{{BFG}} big freaking]] LightningGun. Had a more traditional round-headed mace before his FaceHeelTurn.
* CavalryBetrayal: During TheSiege of Thundera, Grune shows up to fire a FlareGun [[spoiler:that seems to bring the HumongousMecha fleet to a halt]], only to perform an InsigniaRipOffRitual and an EvilCostumeSwitch while debuting his nasty new weapon.
* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Even given his FlungClothing, it takes entirely too little time for him to change into his more elaborate togs.
* LesCollaborateurs: Formed an alliance with Mumm-Ra and the Lizards to orchestrate Thundera's fall.
* DealWithTheDevil: Frustrated in his ambitions of rulership, Grune frees Mumm-Ra in exchange for the promise of power, agreeing to engineer Thundera's sacking and serve as TheDragon until Mumm-Ra gets ahold of the Eye of Thundera. He is, however, quick to recognize possible opportunities to betray Mumm-Ra.
* DevilInPlainSight: He dropped anvil-sized hints to Panthro for years upon years that he had designs on the throne. But for some reason, it didn't register [[spoiler: until the moment they met Mumm-Ra.]]
* TheDragon
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Part of his GlorySeeker behavior. He prefers large shows of courage instead of working under the radar, and hopes to become General of Thundera's troops. He's initially very unhappy with being given the quest to find the Book of Omens, and in a moment of paranoia, blurts out to Panthro that not only is it a SnipeHunt, but a UriahGambit to get Grune out of the kingdom.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: By way of revealing his alliance with the Lizards, Grune changes into a dark suit of armor.
* EvilFormerFriend: To both Claudus and Panthro
* FaceHeelTurn
* FangsAreEvil: Because his single, massive sabertooth is neither little nor cute.
* FashionableAsymmetry: It ''does'' look pretty cool though.
* FlungClothing: Grune casts aside his armor in this way
* FourStarBadass: Once "Thundera's greatest general"
* GenreSavvy: As a Thunderian General, Grune understands very well how to play a role as a means to an end, persistently seeking ways to get and stay in Thundera's halls of power and the public eye. As TheDragon, when he sets a trap for the Thundercats, he calls out as he [[VillainExitStageLeft makes his escape]], [[WeWillMeetAgain "Until next time, Panthro!"]] wisely assuming that since Panthro [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat somehow survived]] his first brush with death, he'd do so again.
* GlorySeeker: Calculatingly so, as glory is a means to acquire power.
* GodEmperor: Grune seeks to [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] the CargoCult of the Book of Omens this way
--> '''Panthro''': Look at them, they're already hailing us as heroes.
-->'''Grune''': If we come back with the Book of Omens, we'll be hailed as ''gods''.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: In "Between Brothers", Panthro reveals the reason he's only got one fang: in the past they were confronted by a legendary giant spider, and Grune ''ripped his tooth out'' so he could stab it in the eye. [[{{Badass}} Damn.]]
* HeroicBuild: As Panthro notes, he's a cat "who pulls his weight."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Panthro, in {{Flashback}}s. Likes him enough that even after his FaceHeelTurn he readily makes the offer that WeCanRuleTogether.
* [[HyperspaceMallet Hyperspace Mace]]: In {{flashback}} Grune's mace appears out of nowhere in time for him to fight Panthro
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: As explained by Panthro, his personal philosophy is "To defeat an enemy, any sacrifice is worth it." [[spoiler:Bites him in the ass when Panthro turns the philosophy to justify sacrificing his own arms in order to throw Grune into a collapsing Astral Plane.]]
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Grune gives this as his baseline motivation, but the reality is rather more complex.
* InsigniaRipOffRitual: Grune reveals his CavalryBetrayal and begins his EvilCostumeSwitch this way.
* {{Jerkass}}: Betrayed his friend, betrayed his king, betrayed his people, will only fight battles where he's guaranteed to win, list goes on.
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: Grune's M.O. as a soldier. There's a war on? Enlist so he can put his skills to use. He sees his King overrun by Lizards? Rig a catapult to kill them al-well, not the King- so he can become a Captain thanks to his timely demonstration of valor. Huge battle? Keep count of his kills so he can make General.
* MorphWeapon: A ''huge'' ''[[CarryABigStick kanabo]]'', which slowly telescopes, and charges up before serving as a {{BFG}} LightningGun.
* MythologyGag[=/=]WholeCostumeReference: Before putting on his battle armor, he's wearing a tweaked version of his outfit from the original series.
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody]]: [[spoiler:In "Between Brothers", he gets sucked into the collapsing Astral Plane along with Panthro's arms; time will tell whether he's KilledOffForReal or not.]]
* OddNameOut: Along with Claudus, breaks the standard ADogNamedDog convention for Thundercat names.
* TheParagonAlwaysRebels: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] with Grune, who [[GenreSavvy understands]] the surest way to succeed at rebellion is to ''become'' a paragon.
* RedRightHand: His single fang, a clear deformity that gives him a decidedly sinister appearance despite his AdaptationalAttractiveness.
* SmugSnake: Much like his original incarnation.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Unlike his 80's counterpart, he isn't a ghost in this series.
* [[spoiler:TheStarscream: Began plotting to kill Mumm-Ra...just before Grune himself suffered an unfortunate mishap involving a demensional gateway.]]
* {{Turncoat}}: Defected to Mumm-Ra as soon as he was promised power.
* TheUsurper: Initially planned to use his status as Paragon and later discoverer of the Book of Omens to become this, apparently including Panthro in his plans.

!Slithe
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ThunderCats-Slithe_5353.jpg
-->''Voiced by: DeeBradleyBaker''

The brutish leader of the Lizards, Slithe is slightly lacking in sophistication, but he's very intuitive and cunning. He's also a very cruel and vindictive leader.
----
!!Tropes associated with Slithe:
* AdaptationalBadass: So far smarter and more dangerous than his 80's counterpart.
* FantasticRacism: Harbors a strong hatred for cats.
* FatBastard
* {{Jerkass}}
* LargeAndInCharge
* MookLieutenant: Despite being a General, serves in this capacity for Mumm-Ra and Grune.
* MythologyGag: In "Song of the Petalars", Slithe adds a "Yes." to the end of his sentence when speaking, a nod to the original's more severe VerbalTic.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to [[AxCrazy Kaynar]] and [[ImAHumanitarian Addicus]], anyway.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent
* ShoutOut: As with the original, his design is a tribute to the Orcs from RankinBass' ''[[WesternAnimation/TheHobbit The Hobbit]]''.
* TheStarscream: In "Between Brothers" he proved just how far his ''loyalty'' to Mumm-Ra really goes.
* UnfriendlyFire: So Mumm-Ra's still inside the hut? ...[[spoiler:Destroy that hut men!]]
* WeHaveReserves: He wants to burn down the Briar Woods to get the Thundercats. His scouting party's still inside? "They are expendable... as are ''you'', Lieutenant!"

!Kaynar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kaynar_mugshot_225px_7684.png
-->''Voiced by: DeeBradleyBaker''

A Jackalman and one of Mumm-Ra's two new generals. He is the new version of Jackalman from the original series.
----
!!Tropes associated with Kaynar:
* AdaptationNameChange: From Jackalman to Kaynar
* AdaptationalBadass: He even ''looks'' dangerous!
* AxCrazy: While in prison, Kaynar has to be strapped to a gurney and heavily restrained just to be moved to solitary confinement, which he earned after killing eleven inmates. He's pretty sanguine about his punishment:
--> '''Kaynar:''' At least I'll have the voices in my head to talk to.
** He wasn't even intereted in Sliithe freeing him till he was told he could 'play' with some cats.
* BladeOnAStick: His WeaponOfChoice.
* BloodKnight
* EatsBabies: Gives some thought to eating one of the kittens.
* EvilRedhead: Orange fur, but still creepy as hell.
** CurtainsMatchTheWindows
* GigglingVillain
* LaughablyEvil:
--> "You're like a toy that never breaks! Hahaha. I love it!"
* PsychoForHire
* SerialKiller
* SlasherSmile

!Addicus
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Atticus_mugshot_225px_2377.png
-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

A Monkey and one of Mumm-Ra's two new generals. He is the new version of Monkian from the original series.
----
!!Tropes associated with Addicus:
* AdaptationNameChange: From Monkian to Addicus
* AdaptationalBadass: Bigger, smarter, and badder than his 80's counterpart.
* BloodKnight
* CarryABigStick: Not as massive as Grune's and lacking the lightning, but Addicus does swing around a mean looking double headed mace.
* ImAHumanitarian: He seems to have an appetite for other sentients. Let's start with his would-be avian executioners and go from there...
* ManiacMonkeys
* PsychoForHire
* SerialKiller
* VerbalTic: As of "The Trials of Lion-O" he can be heard making monkey grunts similar to his 80's counterpart.

!Ancient Spirits of Evil
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/770px-TCats_Ep17_Still_5_6880.jpg
--> ''Voiced by: JimCummings''

Evil beings who were once worshipped, and give Mumm-Ra his mystic dark power.
----
!!Tropes Associated with the Ancient Spirits of Evil:
* [[spoiler:BigNo: Deliver one near the end of "Native Son".]]
* BiggerBad: These are the ones that Mumm-Ra answers to.
* DarkIsEvil: Indeed it is
* [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]]
* {{Expy}}: One of them looks exactly like the Egyptian God Anubis.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: We only know them by the group title. No individual names, as of yet.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Revealed to have inflicted one on the Tigers: first they let the plague run its course, which killed them all, and then they cursed them to exist as ghosts who would become monsters every nightfall]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The ''reason'' they wanted Tygra dead? [[spoiler:He will be a thorn in their side when he grows older]].
* GodOfEvil[=/=]JerkassGods
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: [[spoiler: Their desire to want Tygra dead created the very thorn they wanted to avert.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Inverted. All four speak simultaneously with the exact same voice

!The Duelist
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/theduelist_2348.png
-->''Voiced by: MiguelFerrer''

The best swordsman in the land, the Duelist challenges those whose weapons he admires to duels, so he can claim their swords as trophies.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Duelist
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Light purple skin.
* BadassLongcoat: Sports an extremely elaborate caped military tailcoat.
* BadassMustache: It's a long, thin handlebar.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Likes unique swords, especially when wielded by inexperienced users. Care to make a wager?
* {{Cool Sword}}s: Yes...exactly, they're what he has, and what he wants.
* DualWielding: Favors a SinisterScimitar and a RoyalRapier.
* EvilSoundsDeep: It's Miguel Ferrer. You can't get much deeper.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: At night, his already red eyes glow.
* HustlingTheMark: A variant. At no point does he ''feign'' incompetence around his [[TheMark marks]]. Instead, he capitalizes on their naiveté of his MasterSwordsman status to goad them into dueling him out of misplaced {{pride}} in their own skills. Oh, and he also neglects to mention that when you put your sword up against his "best blade," he'll have one [[DualWielding in his other hand]]. Presto, one more sword for his portable shield rack.
* MasterSwordsman
* NamedWeapons: Likely has plenty, but the only one given is the Sword of Hattanzo. [[spoiler: And the Sword of Omens for a few hours.]]
* PointedEars
* ProfessionalGambler: Winner takes all. And he always wins.
* PunnyName: He's a duelist, who's a [[DualWielding dualist]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Red irises on deep maroon sclera.
* RoyalRapier: His right-hand sword, to go along with his {{Swashbuckler}} aesthetic.
* RubberForeheadAlien: A rare creature on a planet of HumanoidAliens and PettingZooPeople.
* SamuraiCowboy: A gunslinger with swords, in {{Swashbuckler}} togs just to further [[NinjaZombiePirateRobot confound classification]].
* SinisterScimitar: His [[AWorldWidePunomenon left-hand]] sword, the famous Sword of Hattanzo.
* SmugSnake: A master at his art, who assumes he's unbeatable.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Really, Lion-O should have known he was bad news.
* {{Swashbuckler}}: A walking refugee of the genre incongruously traipsing around a CattlePunk[=/=]''{{Wutai}}'' and challenging victims to a classic ShowdownAtHighNoon.
* VillainousCheekbones: Very high and narrow.
* VillainousWidowsPeak
* WalkingArmory: He carries all of the swords he took from his opponents on his back.

!Conquedor
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Conquedor2_225px_897.png
-->''Voiced by: JonPolito''

A merchant slaver and trafficker who captures Ro-Bear Bill's family. He captures and sells all sorts of things, from Berbils to [[MythologyGag large cats]]. [[KickTheDog Making him the ultimate scumbag]].

----
!!Tropes associated with the Conquedor
* {{BFG}}: His rifle is ''HUGE!''
* CoolHelmet: Wears a modified conquistador's morion.
* EgomaniacHunter: Which could possibly make him an...
* {{Expy}}: Of Safari Joe from the original series.
* FatBastard: Rather corpulent, rather cruel.
* HighClassGlass: He wears what look like infrared googles.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Or whatever the heck he is.

!Ratar-O
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rataro_6961.png
-->''Voiced by: CarloRota''

Tyranical ruler of the Rats in Mount Plun-Darr and the descendant of Ratilla. He enslaved the cats, forcing them to work in the mines and search for the Sword of Plun-Darr.
----
!!Tropes associated with Ratar-O:
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The leader of the rats proves to be a rather capable fighter when Lion-O faces him, with the two of them being rather evenly matched.
* BadassMustache: Has styled his whiskers into a rather refined-looking mustache, akin to what you'd find in an imperial Chinese court.
* BadBoss: His treatment of his direct subordinate certainly won't be winning him any prizes for "Boss of the Year," will it? [[spoiler:[[TheDogBitesBack It comes back to bite him big-time when said subordinate decides to side with Lion-O by throwing him his sword and gauntlet. ]] ]]
* DualWielding: Ratar-O uses the twin Rat Eye Daggers, which are able to shoot charged energy bolts when crossed.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Acts refined and sophisticated, but is as brutal as any other villain. Which leads right into him being a...
* FatBastard
* JerkassHasAPoint: He's a villain and a tyrant, make no mistake. But considering what we knew of Thundera's FantasticRacism towards the lizards, his claim that the cats didn't want to share similar power with other races (hence why they sent Jaga to reclaim the Sword of Plun-Darr from Ratilla) may have more weight to it than we know...
* KickTheDog: When two cat slaves overpower his underling and try to make a run for it, he chases them into a dead end, taunts them for their failure, and unleashes a single blast of energy from his crossed daggers. Then he walks away with a wicked chuckle. [[GoryDiscretionShot We don't actually see the aftermath,]] but it's pretty clear what just happened.
* KnifeNut: Those twin daggers of his are rather large and ornate to be simple knives, but they come close enough.
* LargeAndInCharge: Assuming that paunch isn't just padding from the armor, Ratar-O has a belly on him. He's noticeably taller than his men. And he's [[IncrediblyLamePun the big cheese]]. Yeah, this applies.
* MythologyGag: His design is very close to how he looked in the original series, but closer inspection shows that he actually looks more like the original Ratilla, at least in terms of costume design.
* OhCrap: Gets one of these [[spoiler: when Lion-O gets his sword and gauntlet back, courtesy of TheDogBitesBack.]]
** And another one when [[spoiler: Lion-O's gauntlet generates an energy field to harness the blast from his Rat Eye Daggers, allowing Lion-O to reflect that power right back at him.]]
* ShadowArchetype: Like Lion-O, he's the leader of his people, has claim to an ancestral weapon (the Sword of Plun-Darr to Lion-O's Sword of Omens), and wields an enchanted blade (his Rat's Eye Daggers). However, where Lion-O is a noble leader who respects his team as friends, Ratar-O is a harsh tyrant who berates his servants (Mordax, in particular) for so much as speaking out of turn.
* [[spoiler:TennisBoss: Worth mentioning, as the way Lion-O ultimately defeats him is by using his gauntlet to block and absorb the energy from Ratar-O's twin energy daggers...[[HoistByHisOwnPetard and throw it right back in his face.]] ]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Claims that his motivation for all his cruel deeds--enslaving the cats and having them mine a dangerous cave for the Sword of Plun-Darr--was that he can lead his people to glory, no longer living off the scraps of the cats or any of the other races. [[spoiler:Except, as Lion-O himself puts it, his people "are just slaves on the other side of the whip."]]
* WickedCultured: As mentioned under FauxAffablyEvil, he generally acts like quite the cultured nobleman.

!Mordax
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mordax_3359.jpg
-->''Voiced by: KevinMichaelRichardson''

Rataro's underling, who must constantly suffer his abuse.
----
!!Tropes associated with Mordax:
* TheDogBitesBack: See ScrewThisImOuttaHere. [[spoiler:Oh, and he also kicked Lion-O's sword and gauntlet back to him, thereby ensuring that Lion-O would have a fighting chance against his abusive master.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Something of an aversion, as he claims he was JustFollowingOrders to whip a cat-slave when Pumyra attacks him. [[spoiler:In a much more clear aversion, he performs a ScrewThisImOuttaHere on Ratar-o [[TheDogBitesBack and throws Lion-O his sword and gauntlet.]]]]
* EyepatchOfPower: Averted somewhat; he's never shown to be a very capable fighter.
* GigglingVillain: [[spoiler:Averted, his only menacing snicker really comes when he turns on his boss by throwing Lion-O his weapons.]]
* JustFollowingOrders: He pulls this excuse when Pumyra attacks him for whipping one of the cat-slaves. She doesn't take it well.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Smaller than just about everyone, making it easier for Ratar-O to abuse him.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He abandons Ratar-O after suffering under his abuse and being shown mercy by Lion-O.
* UngratefulBastard: Lion-O just saved him from a wrathful Pumyra. How does the little creep show his gratitude? By pulling a scythe on Lion-O, forcing him, Pumyra, and Panthro to surrender. [[spoiler: Ultimately averted, as he ends up turning against Ratar-O ''because'' Lion-O showed him more mercy ([[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe and therefore, kindness]]) than the leader of his own kind ever did.]]

!Captain Koinelius Tunar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/504px-CorneliusTuna2011bio_3851.png
-->''Voiced by: RobinAtkinDownes''

Captain Koinelius Tunar is the commanding officer of a sand ship manned by {{Fishmen}}. He holds an intense grudge against a creature called the Ramlak, which took one of his legs and ruined his people's homeland.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Captain:
* AnimalNemesis: {{Inverted}}. Tunar, a [[{{Fishmen}} Fishman]], has sworn vengeance on The Ramlak, a giant ''{{Planimal}}'', a ManEatingPlant[=/=]GiantSquid HybridMonster. It destroyed his home and took his [[AnArmAndALeg eye and leg]].
* AntiHero: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]], as it becomes apparent that his quest to kill the Ramlak has become all-consuming.
* AnArmAndALeg: Type 3. Tunar lost his leg (and an eye) to the Ramlak, and now uses a peg-leg.
* TheCaptain: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. His fixation on the Ramlak has steadily eroded the relationship between himself and his crew.
* CastingGag: RobinAtkinDownes voiced another captain: Captain Romulus Slag from ''RatchetAndClank''.
* {{Determinator}}: And NOT in a good way, as he relentlessly persues the Ramlak:
-->'''Tunar''': "I'll follow ya straight to the flamin' pits of Magmel before I give you up!"
* HeWhoFightsMonsters
* IHaveComeTooFar
* {{Homage}}: To Ahab of MobyDick. He even quotes him at the end when [[spoiler: the Ramlak pulled him in after getting harpooned, in the same exact way Ahab died.]] He may also be a ''very'' loose adaptation of Captain Hammerhand, from the original series.
* LackOfEmpathy: Illustrated towards his long-suffering crew, who he frequently dismisses as weak.
* PunnyName
* RevengeBeforeReason
* ShadowArchetype: To Lion-O. Like Lion-O, he too lost his home to a horrible monster, one that he wishes to destroy at all costs. Seeing where that mindset eventually leads convinces Lion-O to move past his own inclinations of RevengeBeforeReason towards Mumm-Ra.
* WeirdBeard: Koi whiskers as facial hair.

!Emrick the Petalar
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emrik-300x231_1031.jpg
-->''Voiced by: AtticusShaffer, PatrickCavanaugh, and JamesArnoldTaylor''

Emrick is a member of the Petalars, a small race of PlantAliens who've been separated from their homeland for generations. [[spoiler:[[WeAreAsMayflies They live for about a day!]]]] Despite this trait, he's a highly optimistic Petalar who possess an upbeat and adventurous attitude.
----
!!Tropes associated with Emrick:
* BadassAdorable: Capable of going toe-to-toe with opponents many times his size. Not that 'many times his size' is particularly ''big'', but it's still impressive.
* BadassMustache: In adulthood, he gets a dashing ErrolFlynn 'stache.
* CheerfulChild: An enthusiastic young {{Pollyanna}}, quite convinced that, despite being trapped in the [[TheLostWoods Briar Woods]] for generations, Lion-O and his Thundercats will help them find a way back home.
* ConstantlyCurious: He's full of questions for the Thundercats. Lion-O says he reminds him of himself at that age, implying that he was one as well.
* [[spoiler:FinalSpeech: Assures Lion-O that ItsTheJourneyThatCounts]]
* HeroesPreferSwords: Makes one out of a twig to better model himself after Lion-O
* HotBlooded: His one constant trait, mirroring Lion-O.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: An interesting variation. Lion-O is the elder, with Emrick as his much younger friend, [[spoiler:but thanks to the Petalars one-day lifespans, Lion-O sees Emrick become the elder]].
* MotorMouth: During his youth. Luckily his mouth's small enough to be stopped with a little finger.
* PlantPerson: All of the Petalars.
* [[spoiler:{{Retirony}}: Dies before he can ascend the Cliff of Winds, (an uncoiled fern) and ride an updraft to his ancestral home.]]
* TagAlongKid: He's like the little kid brother Lion-O never had. [[spoiler:[[RapidAging For about ten minutes, anyway]]]].

!Khamai, Kask, and Sauro

-->''Voiced by: JamesArnoldTaylor, PatrickCavanaugh, and KevinMichaelRichardson''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Thundercats-Song-of-the-Petalars-069_1313204395_6897.jpg
Three elite lizard commandos who tracked Lion-O and his group into the brambles. They answer directly to General Slithe.
----
!!Tropes associated with Khamai, Kask, and Sauro:
* BareFistedMonk: Kask has a shield, but seems to prefer using martial arts to take down his prey.
* InvisibilityCloak: Being based on a chameleon, Khamai can turn invisible much like Tygra can.
* TheNoseKnows: Sauro is able to catch the scent of the Cats' trail
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent
* ScarilyCompetentTracker
* ShoutOut: The three of them together with Slithe are similar to the band of Mutants from the original series.

!The Driller
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/driller_5567.png
-->''Voiced by: TroyBaker''

The Driller is a giant automaton tasked by Mumm-Ra to work in the Thundrilium mines. He is able to transform into a double ended drill and can bore through almost any surface.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Driller:
* AdaptationalBadass: He is much more menacing and threatening than the relatively simplistic version from the original.
* LoadBearingBoss: After [[spoiler: Lion-O defeats him in "Old Friends", the mine around the Thundercats begins to collapse from the damage he'd caused.]]
* MechanicalMonster
* ThisIsADrill: Yes he is.
* TransformingMecha: He even looks like a [[{{Transformers}} Decepticon]]. His transformation isn't exactly complex though.
* UseYourHead: at the climax of the fight, he uses the drill on his head to try and kill Lion-O. Never mind that he had two perfectly-large drills on his ARMS to engage in the clash with...

!Leo
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thunleo_7006.png
-->''Voiced by: WillFriedle (episode 7) and JasonMarsden (episode 21)''

Leo is Lion-O's ancestor, [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s [[NumberTwo second-in-command]] and leader of the Animal rebellion.
----
!!Tropes associated with Leo:
* AdaptiveArmor: [[spoiler:Using Power Crystals as Amplifier Artifacts, his Claw Gauntlet can transform into a set of custom gold Lion armor.]]
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Like his descendants, his mane and eyes perfectly echo the hues of his weapon, but he lacks the justification of it being an [[AncestralWeapon ancestral birthright]].
* BadassLongHair: Quite an impressive mane.
* CommandingCoolness: Like his immediate superior, also holds the rank of Commander (likely lieutenant commander)
* CoolSword
* {{Expy}}: Of Lion-O himself. Or inverted if you like. Technically, [[YouWillBeBeethoven Leo was first.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords
* InAnotherMansShoes[=/=]YouWillBeBeethoven: What we see of Leo's behavior is actually Lion-O performing a compulsory VisionQuest while being made to re-enact Leo's historical actions.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by his girlfriend Panthera
-->'''Panthera''' (during a riot): Are you gonna stand there and look pretty or are you gonna fight?
* NobleTopEnforcer[=/=]ReverseMole: Inferentially, Leo's been a member of LaResistance for quite awhile, even while serving as TheDragon.
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: For a while, he genuinely believed that [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra]] could bring order to the universe. When [[spoiler: Mumm-Ra demonstrates that he's willing to ''murder an entire star system to forge a super-weapon,'' ]] he swiftly decides to form LaResistance in secret.
* OccultBlueEyes: Blue-green eyes, like his descendants
* OneHeadTaller: Leo is a head ''shorter'' than his girlfriend Panthera. In fact, Leo seemed shorter than ''everyone'' in [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s service.
* RebelLeader
* RedHeadedHero
* RetractableWeapon
* RoyalBlood

!Captain Tygus
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tygus_7372.png
-->''Voiced by: CoreyBurton''

Captain Tygus is [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s leader in the field, who's operations obtained the War Stone. [[spoiler:Like other Tigers, he fought against Leo's Mutiny against Mumm-Ra. His clan was banished for this reason.]]
----
!!Tropes associated with Captain Tygus:
* TheCaptain: The hands-on, field-leader type, who conducts a one-man assault on a heavily guarded tower powered by a MacGuffin he's {{Plunder}}ing for his Commander.
* {{Expy}}: Of Tygra. Lion-O/Leo even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the man's doubt in his plan:
-->'''Lion-O/Leo''': "A tiger underestimating me. I'm not surprised."
* EyepatchOfPower: Wears a Scouter
* [[spoiler:SpaceMarine]]: Highly efficient against the hostiles that would stand in the way of his obtaining the Warstone.
* UnwittingPawn: In a MacGuffinDeliveryService.

!Panthera
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thunpanthera_6790.png
-->''Voiced by: CreeSummer''

Leo's beloved and coordinator of the rebellion.
----
!!Tropes associated with Panthera:
* BigDamnKiss: Shares one with Leo [[spoiler: as Mumm-Ra's spaceship/pyramid goes plummeting towards Third Earth.]]
* HotAmazon
* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: Cree, of course, voiced Max on ''BatmanBeyond'', so has played the faithful partner to a WillFriedle character before.
* MoralityPet: In "Birth of Blades" she was the one who openly questioned [[spoiler:Mumm-Ra]]'s brutal orders and caused the initially blindly loyal Leo to start questioning them as well.
* OneHeadTaller: Inverted. Leo only comes up to her shoulders if you count his hair.
* ReverseMole
* ReplacementLoveInterest: Following Leo's story, she functions parallel to Cheetara as a lion's [[UndyingLoyalty undyingly loyal]] confidant, counselor, and LoveInterest.
** In "Birth of the Blades," we see more to this relationship. Her initial doubt that Leo can make up for his mistake [[spoiler: in believing in Mumm-Ra, leading to the destruction of a star system]], not to mention [[WhatTheHellHero calling him out on it]], is rather reminiscent of [[spoiler: Pumyra's initial doubt in Lion-O.]] As is the way she softens after Leo proves that he's thought this through, and is willing to follow through to the bitter end.
* StatuesqueStunner: Panthera towers over Leo and he ''definitely'' isn't complaining.
* TallDarkAndBishoujo
* TinyGuyHugeGirl
* UndyingLoyalty: Her faith in Leo is absolute, even when Leo is unsure of the outcome himself.

!Shen
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/225px_shen_2111.png
-->''Voiced by: RobPaulsen''

Leader of the Jackals who joined Leo in his rebellion against Mumm-Ra.
----
!!Tropes assocaiated with Shen:
* EyesOfGold
* HeroicDog
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Willing to work with the Cats to escape.

!Rezard
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rezard2_225px_5848.png
-->''Voiced by: RobPaulsen''

Leader of the Lizards who joined Leo in his rebellion against Mumm-Ra.
----
!!Tropes associated with Rezard:
* {{Expy}}: Of ''Slithe,'' of all people.
* LizardFolk
* MeaningfulName: Rezard? Just swap out "Re" with "Li," and you get "Lizard."
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Also willing to work with the Cats, though he expresses more doubts than Shen about this.

!The Drifter[[spoiler:/Hattanzo the Swordmaker]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thedrifter_8989.png
-->''Voiced by: StephenRoot''

A mysterious, eccentric rabbit man who offers Lion-O some much needed advice in the Swordsmans' Town.
----
!!Tropes associated with The Drifter
* AloofAlly: "...if you expect me to help, ''[[ImplausibleDeniability you haven't been paying attention]].''"
* AmericanAccents: A light [[SouthernGentleman southern]] drawl. (His voice artist is a character actor who frequently plays southern archetypes.)
* [[spoiler:AndThatLittleGirlWasMe]]: The Drifter tells a NamelessNarrative of how the Duelist acquired his favorite trophy blade, implying that Lion-O will repeat the mistakes of its previous wielder.
* BadassAdorable: Comes with being a rabbit.
* BadassLongHair[=/=]MessyHair[=/=]WildHair: His dark brown hair is long, unkempt and full of bits of straw.
* BadassPacifist: "A weakness can be turned into a strength."
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Though he inhabits a world full of them, the Drifter specifically DoesNotLikeShoes. [[spoiler:In youth, he was TheOneWhoWearsShoes, but abandoned the trait after his loss to the Duelist triggered a deep depression.]]
* BeneathTheMask: His mildly amused, smiling, BrilliantButLazy exterior hides a despondent man [[spoiler:who still grieves the loss of his masterwork to the Duelist.]]
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: White iris-pupil on black sclera. Very [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]]. He's merely eccentric.
* BrandishmentBluff: [[spoiler:Using the willow reed he keeps [[OralFixationFixation in his mouth]], The Drifter parries the Duelist's attempt to stab Lion-O InTheBack, then continues to mock-attack, relying on the Duelist's startlement and reflexive movements to trip him up. The Duelist lands on his rear and the Drifter mockingly sticks the reed up his nose.]]
* BrilliantButLazy: Until Lion-O piques his interest.
* BulletTime[=/=]SuperReflexes: As "[[NotQuiteFlight a drifter]]," he induces this ''at will,'' to the point where he appears able to {{Overcrank}} himself.
* ConfusionFu: Disorients opponents with NotQuiteFlight, NonchalantDodge, and {{Brandishment Bluff}}s
* [[spoiler:CoolSword: The Sword of Hattanzo, which he made himself.]]
* DanceBattler: And he doesn't even need to throw a punch. At one point, he performs a pirouette in ''midair''.
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: When he lost his best sword to The Duelist.]]
* DissonantSerenity: Swinging a sword at his head won't faze him enough to [[EyesAlwaysShut open his eyes]], or wipe the [[PerpetualSmiler smile]] off his face.
* DistressedDude: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. Tends to [[UnwillingSuspension snag himself]] on fences and need Lion-O's help getting down, which begs the question as to why he always [[DeliberatelyDistressedDamsel manages to appear]] where Lion-O is, just when the boy could use some advice...
* TheDitherer: ''Constantly'' qualifies his statements. You should take his advice...or don't...he doesn't care.
* DramaticWind: Accompanies him, ruffling only ''his'' hair and clothes in a given scene, to give an impression of his lightness. In a nod to his EmpathicEnvironment, he frequently uses wind metaphor in his speech.
* TheDrifter: Actually [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] He poses as someone who quite ''[[LiteralMetaphor literally]]'' blows into town, and claims to go "wherever the wind takes him" but that translates to floating around the fringes of the Swordsmans' Town, waiting for someone like himself to come along so he can deliver an AdventureRebuff. By the time he's done with Lion-O, he's come to fully embody his archetype, [[RidingIntoTheSunset walking into the sunset]].
* EarsAsHair: A rabbit, his ears are as straw-filled, floppy and lank as his hair [[spoiler:In youth, they were [[ExpressiveEars expressive]] and sat high on his head, beginning to droop in defeat.]]
* EccentricMentor: "Take my advice and blow on out of here, or don't. I don't care."
* EnlightenmentSuperpowers[=/=]PowerBornOfMadness[=/=]TookALevelInBadass: Not that he ''cares,'' but the Drifter has essentially perfected his NotQuiteFlight and NonchalantDodge [[spoiler:through suffering an ongoing ''major depressive episode''. The languid movements that came with his feelings of despair and apathy after his defeat by the Duelist allowed him to become aware of all his flaws as a young combatant.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: The Drifter's hair is long and ungroomed, but [[spoiler:as a young man, he wears his hair in a neat, shorter ponytail.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Often. Seems to only open his eyes when making particularly trenchant points or being very emotionally engaged.
* FatalFlaw: [[spoiler:His {{Hubris}} regarding his swordsmithing skill, assuming he made a sword so magnificent that it could surely beat even a master swordsman, regardless of the skill of its wielder.]]
* [[spoiler: TheGunfighterWannabe[=/=]KidSamurai]]: Became a ScrapHeapHero out of his failure.
* [[spoiler: HeroesPreferSwords]]
* HiddenDepths: Guess why his entry has so many spoilers.
* {{Homage}}: [[spoiler: To HattoriHanzo, particularly ''Film/KillBill'''s swordsmith. As to the fact that he's a [[UsagiYojimbo rabbit]], well...]]
* KarmicTrickster: Towards the Duelist.
* {{Koan}}: "Willows are weak, but they bind other wood."
* LeaningOnTheFurniture[=/=]RebelRelaxation: Slouches, slumps or sprawls whenever there's a structure in his immediate vicinity.
* LimitedWardrobe: In his case, [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]. He's been wearing the same set of clothes for a long time, and it actually shows in their tattered, patched condition. [[spoiler:He's been wearing them ever since his defeat at the hands of the Duelist]].
* MeaningfulName: He literally drifts on windcurrents as easily as a leaf. [[spoiler:His real name, Hattanzo, is a contraction of HattoriHanzo.]]
* MeekTownsman: "This is a Swordsmans' town, stranger, and they duel for keeps. ''[[AdventureRebuff Leave]]'', before it's too late. Or don't, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I don't care]]."
* NonchalantDodge: A ''master.''
* NotQuiteFlight: A marvelously absurd power to float on currents of wind, the catch being that he does seem to [[UnwillingSuspension snag himself]] on tall fences rather frequently.
* OralFixationFixation: Constantly chews a willow reed.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's much shorter than Lion-O and The Duelist [[spoiler:and he proceeds to kick the latter's ass when he tries to stab the former in the back]].
* RascallyRabbit: Overlaps with TricksterMentor.
* RetiredBadass: [[spoiler:Was once "the greatest swordmaker of all time," but hasn't made a sword since his defeat by the Duelist.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Amazing, since he manages to kick ass without kicking any ass.
* ScrapHeapHero: [[spoiler:A failed swordsman, but that doesn't stop him from blocking the Duelist's last knife attack ''with a willow reed'']].
* TheSlacker: "There is such a thing as trying too hard, which is why I prefer not trying at all."
* StepfordSmiler: If his apathy isn't enough of a cue, his oft-present grin hides a deep depression [[spoiler:at the loss of his masterwork, his finest sword, to the Duelist]].
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "I don't care," and many variations thereof, a de facto CatchPhrase. Over time, the ImplausibleDeniability of the statement steadily increases to the point where it becomes obvious it's a [[BlatantLies lie.]]
* TheTropeWithoutATitle: He says he's "just a drifter, I suppose".
* TricksterMentor: He's so good at it that Lion-O didn't even get what he was trying to teach him until he's practically already lost the duel. [[spoiler:He even gave Lion-O a sword that he knew would break, just to drive the point home.]]
* [[spoiler:UltimateBlacksmith: Hattanzo himself, maker of the Duelist's best trophy, the Sword of Hattanzo.]]
* UnreliableNarrator: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed.]] When telling a story, the Drifter conceals [[spoiler:his identity as the protagonist, and his real name in the [[TheTropeWithoutATitle descriptor]] of his sword.]] Lion-O realizes the former, but not the latter, and the Drifter never ''directly'' acknowledges the story's implications.
* [[spoiler:WaifFu: A rare GenderInverted example. Willow reeds kick ass.]]
* WarriorTherapist: Provides a very pointed critique of Lion-O's impatience and poor technical skill.
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:Apparently if you're badass enough, you ''CAN'' disarm someone wielding a knife with just [[ImprobableWeaponUser a willow reed.]] In youth, he was its inverse, UnskilledButStrong.]]
* {{Wuxia}}[=/=]{{Wutai}}: His personal genre. Despite not being a trained warrior, he borrows from the {{Ronin}} concept, and blows WireFu away.
* ZenSurvivor

* InHarmonyWithNature: They use their [[PaperMaster wood forging]] to defend the forest against Viragor, employing a paper mill to produce their supplies. [[spoiler:Which they do by unsustainable clear-cutting with no replanting, provoking the [[SubvertedTrope ire]] of Viragor.]]
* MacrossMissileMassacre: One of Zigg's attacks is basically the paper version of this.

!!Tropes associated with Dobo:
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ended up in charge of the gladitorial games he was once an asskicking champion in, and it's strongly implied that he overthrew the previous management.
* BadAss: Just look at the guy.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Panthro. [[spoiler: It ultimately ends better than it did with Grune.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: Gladiator boss and easily one of the tallest characters in the series, towering over the already-massive Panthro.
* MeaningfulName: Dobo. Doberman. Get the picture?
* NobleBigot: Despite thinking ill of Panthro for [[spoiler: presumably]] abandoning him to the arena, and thinking that cats in general have no honor, he nonetheless greets Panthro as a friend and lets the Thundercats stay in his city. Later, [[spoiler: when Pumyra refuses to finish off Lion-O even when threatened with death, ]] he even agrees to release Pumyra from the arena.
* RagsToRiches: Started out as a lowly gladiator fighting in the arena. By the time the Thundercats meet him, he's the man in charge of the whole spectacle!

-->''Voiced by: FredTatasciore''

A pickpocket raccoon gifted with kleptovoyance, the ability to know the right thing to steal, even if he isn't sure how it will be useful.
----
!!Tropes associated with Tookit:

* {{Expy}}: A charming thief with a preternatural sense of thieving opportunities, and whose tools include a staff with a hook on one end? Apparently, [[VideoGame/SlyCooper Sly Cooper]] has family on Third Earth.
* ItMayHelpYouOnYourQuest / YouWillKnowWhatToDo: His kleptovoyance in a nutshell, leading him to steal seemingly worthless trinkets that soon after prove beneficial to him in some way.
* LoveableRogue
* PunnyName: "Took it", referring to his thieving nature.
* RascallyRaccoon
* StickyFingers

* EvenEvilHasStandards: When describing Addicus and Kanar to Slithe, he says the two have committed crimes even he wouldn't do. Of course, he then sends Slithe to hire them, anyway...

* [[spoiler: IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Zig-Zagged, in "New Alliances" he tells Tygra and Cheetara that he knows about their relationship and he's happy for the both of them, but privately chews Cheetara out for (unintentionally) leading him on.]]

* MoralEventHorizon: Stabbing King Claudius in the back? Subjecting wise old Jaga to a FateWorseThanDeath? Hiring psychos like [[AxCrazy Kaynar]] and [[ImAHumanitarian Addicus]]? Bringing about the downfall of Thundera and enslaving its people? Trying to TakeOverTheWorld? [[spoiler: Oh, no...it's when, in the past, he destroyed a ''populated solar system'' to forge the Sword of Plun-Darr that he established himself as a monstrous being.]]



* HeyItsThatVoice!: Claudius and Panthro should have seen this betrayal coming. [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Lex Luthor]] would NEVER be satisfied with being a servant when he saw the chance to become a king!

* OneHeadTaller: Leo is a head ''shorter'' than his girlfriend Panthera. in fact Leo seemed shorter than ''everyone'' in [[spoiler:Commander Mumm-Ra]]'s service.
* TheOtherDarrin: Leo is voiced by WillFriedle in his first appearance because of Lion-O reliving events of the past through Leo. "Birth of the Blades" has JasonMarsden voicing him, and this is likely what Leo's actual voice sounds like. This is something of a CastingGag, since Friedle and Marsden are good friends.
