Characters: The Thundermans
    open/close all folders 

    Phoebe Thunderman 
Actor:Kira Kosarin

Tropes:

    Max Thunderman 
Actor:Jack Griffo

Tropes:

  • Aloof Big Brother: To Billy and Nora.
  • Badass: If single headedly taking on The Grey Ghoul (one of the most powerful and dangerous ghosts, who only his father had ever beaten) while the ghoul also was possessing Phoebe and thus had access to all her powers (and as they have the same powers that means Max didn't have a hope of being close to equal) and not only surviving but bouncing back from the defeat doesn't qualify him, not much will.
  • Black Sheep: Max is a supervillain in a family of superheroes.
  • Butt Monkey: Not always, but of the cast he does get hurt the most.
  • Breath Weapon: Just like his sister, Max has both Heat and Ice Breath.
  • Brilliant but Lazy: Max is every bit as smart as his sister (academically) but prefers to slack off in class, and work on his inventions rather than study.
  • Chick Magnet: A lot of girls find him attractive, including Phoebe's best friend.
  • Crazy-Prepared
  • Dance Battler: When fighting the Grey Ghoul, Max proves he's incredibly agile and quick.
  • Deuteragonist
  • Envy: The whole reason he wants to be a supervillain is because he doesn't want to be a second best hero to his sister.
  • Evil Genius: Well he's certainly a genius, and he wants to be evil.
  • Evil Twin: Max is (or at least wants to be) this to Phoebe.
  • Harmless Freezing: Both he and his sister can use their Ice Breath for this.
  • I Just Want to Be Special
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: For all his claims being evil and being a supervillain, when it really maters he will always come through for his family.
  • Mad Scientist: Has his own lab, builds rockets and doomsday devices and is a unarguable genius.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Very good at getting others to do what he wants.
  • Mind over Matter: His main ability.
  • The Prankster: Generally his only display that he's evil.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: The only trait Pheobe and Max share are their powers.
  • The Unfavourite: His parents (and apparently the entire superhero community) clearly prefer Phoebe. It's (at least partially) down to this that he wants to be a supervillain in the first place.
  • Teen Genius
  • Token Evil Teammate

    Billy Thunderman 
Actor:Diego Velazquez

Tropes:

    Nora Thunderman 
Actor:Addison Riecke

Tropes:

    Hank Thunderman 
Actor:Chris Tallman

Tropes:

  • Big Eater
  • Bumbling Dad: Has shades of this, although he's still savvy enough to know that when you have four kids there is always a good reason to shout. Whether or not his wife is any better though, is debatable.
  • Flying Brick
  • Happily Married: To Barb
  • Large Ham
  • One Head Taller: Than his wife.
  • Reluctant Retiree: Somewhat he voluntarily retired from crime fighting so his children could have a normal childhood, however he will leap at every half chance he gets and apparently still wears his suit under his clothes.
  • Retired Badass: He used to be a great superhero.
  • Super Strength: Describes himself as the strongest man in the world.

    Barb Thunderman 
Actor:Rosa Blasi

Tropes:

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Certainly.
  • My Beloved Smother: Has shown signs of this, such as panicking when she had to leave her children for one night.
  • Happily Married: To Hank.
  • Lethal Chef: To the point her kids try and vandalise her cooking equipment.
  • Light 'em Up: She can produce and manipulate light as well as electricity and even simulate the effects of sparklers.
  • Reluctant Retiree: She is defiantly more willing than her husband, however she still dresses up in her superhero costume and plays a motion capture superhero video game with her husband, while the children are at school. Apparently quite often.
  • Shock and Awe: She wasn't a hero called "Electriss" for nothing.
