ThunderCats follows the adventures of the eponymous team of heroes, cat-like humanoid aliens on a planet called Third Earth.

Original ThunderCats

Jaga is also known as “Jaga the Wise” and is based on the jaguar. This elder warrior was once regarded as the mightiest and greatest of all Thundercats by Lion-O himself. In his youth, Jaga was the Lord of the Thundercats, and rescued a young Hachiman from being trapped in the Jade Dragon (which later became a part of the Treasure of Thundera).

Lion-O is the leader and the hereditary “Lord of the Thundercats”. Lion-O, based on the lion, wields the legendary Sword of Omens, which can fire bolts of energy and allows Lion-O to see across great distances with its power of “Sight Beyond Sight”, the sword was created from the same star as the sword of plundar, the eye of thundera is the eye which belonged to a beast who was as gigantic as the mountain.

Panthro is the next noble and greatest warrior after Jaga and based on the panther. Even though a warrior in all forms of ThunderCats martial arts fighting, Panthro has a brilliant mind, which he uses as the chief mechanic/engineer and pilot for the ThunderCats. He is also physically the strongest and is a cunning warrior in combat, relying as much on martial arts as on physical strength.

Tygra is a staunch, level-headed warrior based on the tiger. Tygra is known as the ThunderCat architect and scientist. He is the one Lion-O often turns to as second-in-command and for counsel. He is responsible for the design of all the ThunderCat structures on Third Earth—the Cat’s Lair and the Tower of Omens. He is also gifted with “mind-power”—the ability to create lifelike illusions in other people’s minds; he used this for Lion-O’s Anointment Trial, but it puts a great strain on him. He uses a whip-like bolas in combat, with which he can render himself invisible to the naked eye.

Cheetara is a female warrior, based on the cheetah. She is the only adult female ThunderCat until the later appearance of Pumyra. She is as lovely as she is brave and caring. Often a voice of reason, she is also the bearer of a budding “sixth sense,” detecting when something is unsafe or if evil is near. This precognitive sense, which Cheetara regards as a curse for the most part, also allows her to perceive visions—whether involuntary or by forcing herself—but can leave her very weak; she may require days to regain her strength.

WilyKit and WilyKat are twin siblings, Kat being the older brother and Kit as the younger sister where both are based on the wildcat; they are jointly referred to as “ThunderKittens” by the other characters, although technically they are older than Lion-O. In the original series, Kat appears to be the equivalent to a human that is twelve years of age. They are the mischief-makers, and often have their own lessons to learn alongside Lion-O while they live on Third Earth, where they frequently use tricks and traps to combat evil.

Bengali is one of the two younger Thundereans among the trio, named after the bengal tiger and resembling the white variant. This warrior is a skilled blacksmith like his father before him and it proves valuable after the Sword of Omens is once again broken.

Lynx-O is the oldest of the trio who is based on the lynx. Lynx-O was spared the sight of the destruction of their home world by a cruel twist of fate: a blast of intense heat and fire blinded him moments before he and his two younger companions were rescued, leaving his eyes all orange denoting blindness. Because of this injury, Lynx-O has had to adapt to survive on Third Earth and has done so by honing his other senses to super-human levels. His sense of touch, smell, taste and hearing are far above those of the other ThunderCats, and this affords him a type of “sixth sense,” though it is not like the one Cheetara possesses.

Pumyra is another female Thunderian along with Cheetara and WilyKit. This young woman who is based on the puma is a talented healer and medic. She uses her knowledge of Thunderian medicine, combined with the wide range of medical supplies to be found on Third Earth, to help heal and cure her fellow ThunderCats. Her compassionate nature lends to offering an alternative perspective, solving problems or conflict without fighting by using compromise and understanding. Possibly the most agile ThunderCat next to the ThunderKittens, Pumyra employs an incredible leaping ability—often able to vault higher than even great jumpers like Tygra or the ThunderKittens. She was also shown to be able to move in short bursts of super-speed (while moving fast she resembled a flash of lightning darting from place to place). In combat, she uses special whipcord, which resembles a “cat’s tail,” that can launch special pellets and spheres like an ancient sling.

Claudus is the previous Lord of the ThunderCats and Lion-O’s father who like his son is based on the lion. Claudus ruled Thundera before its destruction. He lost his sight during a war he fought against the mutants of Plun-Darr.

Jagara is found deep within the core of New Thundera. This powerful, ancient Thundercat (like Jaga, based on the jaguar) is an immortal sorceress. Her duty is to guard the massive gyroscope that keeps the planet intact. She uses the powers of levitation, teleportation, and psychokinesis to perform her tasks and to defend the gyroscope from attackers.

Torr – A young Thunderian commoner of indeterminate feline motive rescued by the ThunderCats along with other commoners from their ship drifting into deep space. Since then, Torr has been an ally of the ThunderCats where he has often helped the ThunderCats in various missions. In “Well of Doubt,” Torr is shown to have a history with Baron Tass.

Leah – A Thunderian little girl of indeterminate feline motive whose escape pod was intercepted by Mumm-Ra and landed in the Jungles of Darkness.

Lion-S – Exclusive to ThunderCats Roar, Lion-S is a Thunderian based on a lion. She came to Third Earth where she met Lion-O who found a kindred spirit in her since they have good sword tricks and a talent for pranks like they did on Mumm-Ra and the Mutants.

Snarf is an elder Snarf, properly known by his name Osbert, which he hates. Snarf served as a nursemaid and protector for Lion-O when he was a boy. After Lion-O grew up, Snarf found that often Lion-O did not want to have him “mothering” or protecting him. Still, Snarf has remained loyal to Lion-O and the other ThunderCats.

Snarfer is a young and excitable Snarf who is Snarf’s young nephew.

Snarf Oswald and Snarf Eggbert are two of the Snarfs who survived the destruction of Thundera, this duo became the ThunderCats main Snarf “contacts” on New Thundera.

Mumm-Ra is an undead evil sorcerer bound to the servitude of four malevolent, godlike entities known as the Ancient Spirits of Evil. Native to the planet of Third Earth, Mumm-Ra’s goal is to destroy the ThunderCats and ensure his world remains under his control.

Vultureman is a crafty, vulture-like opportunist who serves as chief inventor and mechanical know-it-all for the Mutants. His skills with both machines and science make him frequently indispensable, but he is more often than not blamed when his devices or machines fail to live up to Slithe’s expectations.

Grune the Destroyer  is a Thunderian based on the saber-toothed tiger. This former ThunderCat noble was once a good friend to Jaga the Wise on Thundera. However, his lust for power and greed turned him renegade against his fellow ThunderCats, forcing Jaga to fight him in a titanic battle that lasted for days. Grune was defeated by Jaga, then banished and sent into exile in space. He wields a mace and possesses immense superhuman strength.

Monkian is a shifty no-good eavesdropper who is the excitable leader of the Simians, a race of ape men. He often plays the role of scout for the Mutants and is frequently the first to run from danger. Monkian typically uses his flail and projectile-firing shield when in combat. He pilots one of the Skycutters.
