** A kingdom of cats with one black maned cat leading a rebellion against the king with the oppressed minorities? [[Disney/TheLionKing Why does that sound familiar?]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Cheetara after choosing Tygra over Lion-O. You can't really blame Lion-O for harboring resentment and jealousy over her and Tygra after all the mixed signals she sent him throughout the first few epsisodes. Furthermore, when the three of them are attacked by Mumm-Ra's three generals, she opts to surrender when Tygra is captured despite the fact that doing so won't save either of them.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop:
** "Song of the Petalars": You might still have a chance of escaping your pursuers and attaining a noble goal when the fate of your people, perhaps even your ''planet'' hangs in the balance? Don't feel like it. We're TiredOfRunning! [=ThunderCats=] [[HonorBeforeReason never retreat]]! Let's make our LastStand for [[GloryHound glory]]! Never mind the cowering eight-year-old refugees!
*** Fabulously [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] the very next episode by Panthro dryly noting how miraculous it is they've survived this long "without adult supervision."
** "The defeat of your enemy is worth any sacrifice". Granted, we probably aren't meant to completely agree with this, but Panthro does subscribe to this line of thinking when [[spoiler:he sacrifices both his arms to trap Grune in the astral plane.]]
** [[spoiler: "The Forest of Magi Oar". Technology is bad, nature is good. The Wood Forgers ARE causing damage to forest by not replacing the trees they cut down, but that's something could potentially be fixed by pointing out the need to replenish what you take from nature and manage your resources wisely enough to where you don't harm the world around you. Instead, rather than learning how to make technology and nature co-exist, it becomes a 'technology is bad' story where the giant owl that eats people is proven right and the genuinely good work the Wood Forgers had done is ignored.]]


* FandomRivalry: With its successor, the more comedy-oriented ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCatsRoar''.
* FanPreferredCouple: Lion-O/Cheetara, to those who didn't like the latter ending up with Tygra.
** The Lion-O/Wilykit pairing has gained some popularity from fans to the point that [[WordOfGod Dan Norton]] said in an [[https://soundcloud.com/celestasart-com/thundercats2011restofstory interview]] that they would become a couple in the ten-year timeskip during the aborted second production season.

* StoicWoobie: Panthro.

* StoicWoobie: Panthro.StoicWoobie:
** Panthro.
** That poor Swordmaker, so very heartwrenching to see his dreams so mercilessly crushed. [[spoiler:That awful purple man made the ''cute bunny'' sad!]]



** Pumyra, who wasn't always a fighter. She was sold into slavery after the fall of Thundera first in a mine and later as a gladiator under Dobo in The Pit. When she chews Lion-O out over everything that's happened and how she holds him responsible for her and the other refugees suffering she almost breaks down in tears (and in the next episode we get to see firsthand the hell she lived in). There's been plenty of ManlyTears in the show, but seeing a strong, independent woman break down like that is a first.

* MagnificentBastard:
** Mumm-Ra.
** Rataro. Elegant. Sophisticated. Tyrannical. Rataro has his own agenda for domination and couldn't care less about Mumm-Ra.


* CounterpartComparison: Mumm-Ra being a merciless space-travelling warlord that collects gems/stones from different worlds to place on a gauntlet that when combined grants infinite power? [[ComicBook/{{Thanos}} Sounds]] [[ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet familiar...]]


* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Mumm-Ra]] once commanded a number of races he kept enslaved using [[ExplosiveLeash explosive collars]] that he placed around their necks. In his quest to [[TakeOverTheWorld rule the universe]], Mumm-Ra, as we see in flashbacks ordered the [[ApocalypseHow destruction of a star system in a highly-inhabited solar system, killing billions in the process]], simply so he could use the remains of the star to forge the [[SwordAlmighty Sword of Plun-Darr]]. Defeated and [[SealedEvilInACan sealed inside a coffin]], Mumm-Ra is freed by [[TheDragon Grune]], and soon attacks Thundera with his army, killing Lion-O's father Claudus and enslaving most of the Thundercats. After taking over Thundera, Mumm-Ra proceeds to [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]] Jaga for information via MindRape. In "Between Brothers," Mumm-Ra tries to trick Lion-O and Tygra into killing each other. In the two-part series finale, "What Lies Above," Mumm-Ra threatens to [[WouldHurtAChild kill the Thunderkittens]] when they interfere with his plans, and tries to collapse an entire city to [[KillEmAll kill his enemies]]. Cruel, sadistic, and emotionless, this iteration of Mumm-Ra is TRULY the Ever-Living Source of Evil.

* VindicatedByHistory: The show garnered a more positive reception following ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', due to being much closer and more faithful to the original. This is helped by the fact that it was cited as one of the influences for ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', which is seen as the show's SpiritualSuccessor, along with ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra''. This heightened when a new reboot titled ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCatsRoar'' was announced, in addition to io9 stating that the 2011 reboot was [[https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-first-thundercats-reboot-was-ahead-of-its-time-1826439440 ahead of its time]]. It still remains divisive among long time fans of the original, however.
