* 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]].

AfterTheEnd: The show takes place after TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* BarbarianHero

* BarbarianHeroBarbarianHero: Thundarr is one.



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



* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt

to:

* [[MrExposition Ms. Exposition]]: Ariel often explains where they are and its historical significance to Thundarr and Ookla (and the audience).

* 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.

* BrainyBrunette: Besides her knowledge of magic and ancient history, Ariel also has more common sense than anyone else on the show, hero or villain.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: The wizards.

to:

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: The wizards.AliensAndMonsters: Quite common. In one episode the threat was ''both'' -- an alien monster that was apparently very intelligent and possessed magical powers, but which did not speak and was collecting humans in cocoons seemingly as food.

* FashionModel: One was brought back from the past during a FashionShow, and ends up in a SelfFulfillingProphecy where she gains superpowers and helps stop a wizard, who kidnapped her to prevent that. She also spends the episode in the dress she was modeling.

* SuperStrength: Thundarr definitely has this, although exactly why is unclear since he is supposedly human. Ookla is somewhat more justified.
