* ThudAndBlunder: A good example of the genre. Thundarr is somewhat more articulate and intelligent than many other Thud And Blunder heroes, though.

Thundarr is somewhat more articulate and intelligent than many other Thud And Blunder heroes, though.though; his "barbaric" behavior and apparent ignorance is due to lack of knowledge (as wizards seem to hoard the majority of recorded information for themselves), not lack of intelligence.

In the year 1994, [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt civilization was destroyed in a mighty cataclysm.]] (What? [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture You don't remember that happening?]]) Some 2,000 years later, [[AfterTheEnd the world is still a pretty big mess]], with many of the survivors having [[HalfHumanHybrid mutated into hideous monsters]]. Those who still remain human live precariously amongst the [[LostTechnology ruins of the old world]], at the mercy of evil sorcerers who've managed to [[SchizoTech combine the technology of yore with ancient mysticism]] and create [[{{Magitek}} magic-fueled weapons of awesome power.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FakeWizardry: In the episode "Master of the Stolen Sunsword", Thundarr battles Yondo, a "wizard" whose powers turn out to all be fake and based on stage magic. Despite this, Yondo is a formidable opponent for Thundarr and company, giving them more trouble than many real wizards they battled.

* AfterTheEnd
* Creator/AlexToth: While Creator/JackKirby designed most of the villains and other characters, the three leads were designed by Toth. This is most evident with Ookla, who is clearly a relative of [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost Brak]].

* BarbarianHeroBarbarianHero: Thundarr is one.



** She's also notable for being a ''non-white'' female lead in an era where that wasn't too common.

* NonHumanSidekick: Subverted quite hard compared to the standards of its contemporaries. He-Man had Orko, the Thundercats had Snarf, and Thundarr had... Ookla, a 9-foot-tall, perpetually enraged sasquatch man whom "cute" and "whimsical" don't quite fit.
** This might be debatable, considering how often Ookla filled the "comic relief" role.
** [[Franchise/StarWars How original!]]



* JustForFun/XMeetsY:
** Creator/CartoonNetwork once called this "''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'' meets ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes''".
** Or, considering the similarity between the Sun Sword and the lightsabers, also between Ookla and Chewbacca, it could be ''Conan the Barbarian'' meets ''Franchise/StarWars''.

* DetonationMoon: The Moon literally split in half when the runaway planet passed by. It does appear that it is gradually pulling back together though.
