"ThunderCats" was one of the most popular cartoons in the '80s. Everyone loved the crew, which included Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro, Cheetara and Snarf. Addictive personality . Our hope is our quizzes and articles inspire you to do just that. This is the final quiz in the "Look what I found in my parents' basement!" series ( past My ThunderCats were a little too worn, so I turned to the fine folks at. Dec 5, However, Tygra once clocked Cheetara's jogging speed at a rate of one admits that she can only maintain her top speed for a couple miles.
Thus, they don't stay naked for long. But since the ThunderCats action figures didn't have removable clothing, at least we never had to wonder what was going on underneath those uniforms. There's the Bottomless Chasm, which the ThunderCats have fallen into on a number of occasions; the River of Despair, which is inhabited by a giant eel, the six-legged black widow shark, and the Whirlpool of Infinity; and Acid Lake, which is… well… a lake filled with acid.
These intimidating locales, and the prehistoric-looking monsters that inhabit them, make it seem like ThunderCats is set during primitive times. However, the title of Third Earth doesn't refer to the planets location to our sun, but instead to the time period. From the series we know that King Arthur was alive when the planet was still referred to as First Earth.
And while we may not know the events that unfolded during Second Earth, we can assume from the lack of human infrastructure and modern technology that it wasn't good. The ThunderCats arrived on a post-apocalyptic Earth, void of modern cities and advanced technology. In fact, the only technology available on Third Earth arrived via Thundera, Plun-Darr, or another outer space civilization.
Though it is never explicitly stated, Mumm-Ra is almost certainly an ancient Egyptian. He sleeps in a sarcophagus, is clothed in mummy bandages, and resides in the ruins of the Black Pyramid.
Mumm-Ra is an evil sorcerer who's dead-set on eradicating the ThunderCats in order to regain control of Third Earth. He often uses the Mutants of Plun-Darr and other nefarious characters to do his dirty work. But, as it turns out, Mumm-Ra is just another pawn on the dark side of the chess board. He's been granted incredible power and eternal life by the Ancient Spirits of Evil in exchange for his servitude.
The spirits-- represented by a boar, ox, crocodile and vulture-- are also reminiscent of ancient Egyptian culture, which goes to show that they have likely been using Mumm-Ra to torment Earth for thousands of years. Just as the evil sorcerer tells us himself: Along with her bo staff and "woman's intuition", Cheetara often uses her super speed to defeat the evils of Third Earth and rescue her fellow ThunderCats from danger.
In "Trouble with Time," the seventh episode of the series, Cheetara's agility is the only means of rescue after Tygra wonders into a cave that accelerates the aging process, turning anyone that spends more than a few seconds inside the cavern into a weak and decrepit version of their former self.

So we know Cheetara's fast. But exactly how fast is she? A cheetah can max out around 60 miles per hour, which is pretty impressive. However, Tygra once clocked Cheetara's jogging speed at a rate of one mile per 30 second, which comes out to miles per hour!
That's twice as fast as her feline counterpart. Though her sprinting speed is never disclosed, Cheetara admits that she can only maintain her top speed for a couple miles. Thus, when Lion-O is forced to challenge Cheetara to a foot race during his anointment trails, Lion-O uses a dangerous shortcut and keeps a steady pace, nosing ahead of Cheetara just in time for the finish line.
And while he is indeed one of the strongest members of the ThunderCats, Panthro was also an accomplished technician and mechanic.
Which Thundercat are you?
The ThunderCats question Lion-O as to how he survived the fall, in which he reveals that he underwent a series of Trials, due to the power of the spirit stone, that allowed him to understand the meaning of becoming a true king.
While still searching for the next power stone, Tygra and Lion-O went off to search the mountains while Panthro was left with Cheetara, WilyKit and WilyKat to search the forest lands. Panthro decided that it was time for the twins to learn to fend for themselves and both he and Cheetara taught them how to hunt for their food. In a boys vs.
- Cheetara (2011 TV series)
Cheetara attempted to teach WilyKit about masking their scent to sneak up on their prey by hiding it with a revolting fruit's aroma, but WilyKit couldn't bear the idea of killing another animal and helped the grazer to run free by knocking Cheetara into the revolting fruit.
Meanwhile, Panthro shows WilyKat about setting traps in an attempt to kill another grazer, but WilyKit also ruined the hunt, as he couldn't kill the animal as well. Both Panthro and Cheetara had it with the kittens and decided to make them hunt for themselves or they won't be able to sleep in the ThunderTank. That night the twins victoriously return with a sweet bounty of fruit, due to them sparing the grazers, both Cheetara and Panthro now believe that the two have potential to survive on their own.
After meeting up with the rest of the ThunderCats, they journey to the City of Dogs where they discover a Cat refugee named Pumyra, who is being forced to fight as a Gladiatrix in the Pit. Cheetara states that she must have survived the fall of Thundera.
The group then watches the "games" and witness the cat, Pumyra, defeat a robot named Gormax with impressive skill and victory.
Lion-O then asks who is in charge of the arena and is led to find Dobo, who will not give up Pumyra, believing she is too valuable to lose while it is also discovered that Panthro was an old friend of Dobo who both fought in the arena as slaves in the past.
Dobo says she must win one hundred battles to gain freedom. Lion-O isn't satisfied with Dobo's choice and decides to sneak into the cells and break Pumyra out, but as he tries to release her she begins to yell at him with anger and rage as she deemed him responsible for Thundera's downfall and their people being sold into slavery, allowing himself to get caught. Dobo appears, taking the Sword of Omens and the Gauntlet while telling Lion-O that he would have to fight Pumyra to earn his freedom.
As Dobo returns the Sword and Gauntlet to Panthro and the others, he tells them that if Lion-O wins this fight he will go free. Panthro, Cheetara and Tygra cannot intervene in order to avoid causing a problem with the Dogs, but instead try to convince Dobo to release them. Dobo refuses and recalls how in the past Panthro had escaped one night and left Dobo alone with all the enemies they made during their slavery. As the battle between Lion-O and Pumyra commenced, Lion-O refused to fight her to show his loyalty towards his people.
Pumyra, intimidated by this, proceeds to beat him without any mercy. The group pleads for Dobo to stop the fight, but he refuses. Dobo says that this battle shows how Cats have no loyalty, until Panthro explains why he left that night. Panthro tells him that the next battle was to be a death match against Dobo and himself. Dobo asks if he ran because he was afraid he would have lost but Panthro says that he was afraid that he might have won.
Lion-O continues to stand up after taking a beating from Pumyra's attacks, stating that he promised to stand by her. Pumyra learns he is truly a strong and caring king and refused to continue the fight. Dobo states that since both forfeited.Tygra & Cheetara [AMV] - Endlessly
After learning why Panthro left and witnessing the loyalty between Pumyra and Lion-O, he lets them live and grants them both their freedom. With old wounds fully healed and new friends made, Lion-O asks Pumyra where the other Cats that were taken by the lizards are now and she replies "Mount Plun-Darr" as she points to an ominous looking castle. Weapon s Cheetara's signature weapon is her staff, Cheetara wielding her staff. Her first staff had the ability to expand and contract, depending on the need.
After her old staff broke, she was given a new one by the Viragor. The new staff has the power to grow out tree roots and launch darts. It also has the extending ability that her old staff possessed. And with both staffs she was able to hover by rotating it above her quickly. Cheetara is a powerful magician and the last living Cleric.
She's also the fastest cat in Thundera and an expert in many forms of combat, including staff fighting.
Appearance She has blonde hair with spots. She wears a brown outfit that exposes lots of her cleavage and midriff, and sandals. In one of the more dramatic revamps, this incarnation of Cheetara is younger and leaner.
She appears to be in what we would equate to in human years her early twenties with waist-length blonde hair, speckled with the characteristic cheetah spots.
The front shorter section of hair has been brought forward, creating a bangs effect around her somewhat long face. Her face markings differ slightly from the original, presenting a pale pink upsweep around her pale red eyes, giving the impression of drastic eye makeup bordered by short, blonde eyebrows. Her two piece costume is comprised of three tones of brown, the upper half sporting the signature red jewel present in all of the ThunderCat costumes. The lower section appears to be brown shorts with long, darker strips that seem to function as suspenders for her foot coverings which, similar to all of the Cat costumes, leave the claws of the feet exposed.
Cheetara's costume is accessorized with brown wrist-to-elbow guards that sport a disc around each wrist. These discs are also present around her ankles. Personality Cheetara is the most emotionally mature of the team and seems to be able read the feelings of others quite easily. She also appears to be like a supporter to Lion-Oas evidenced by her commentary while helping him defend the two lizards who were being abused by her fellow Thunderians.
She is also the most humble, unlike the bold Lion-O, the cynical and competitive Tygra, or the brooding Panthro. She's also the most supportive of Lion-O, due to her berating Tygra and Panthro for not taking him seriously as a leader in the Journey to the Tower of Omens. At first she didn't seem to be able to tell that Lion-O and Tygra were fighting for her affections. Relationships Tygra Tygra is Cheetara's mate and were old friends, having known each other since they were much younger.
Tygra has always held much deeper feelings for her since the day she first came to join the clericsand she in return. When she formed a friendship with Lion-O, Tygra would grow even more jealous and resent his younger brother. He would usually try to outshine him, not just to impress Cheetara, but to prove himself to be more capable than Lion-O. Luckily, the betrayal was discovered at first not to be Tygra's, as he and Lion-O returned from the hut with resolved differences.
That night when she learned what Tygra and Lion-O went through in the Astral plane, she and Tygra confess their feelings for one another. She also explains she had chosen him several years ago, resulting in a passionate kiss and in the end both become a couple. Unbeknownst to them, a shocked Lion-O was watching their exchange. This was the betrayal Anet had predicted. At one time Cheetara would actually give up a fight, just to save Tygra.
Lion-O Cheetara and Lion-O have a close friendship together. Since first meeting him, she saw something different yet compelling within him as he shows a compassionate will and was against the mistreatment on the lizard prisoners and other species by his own people. As such, she helps and encourages him whenever he's dispirited or having trouble handling the Sword of Omens.
Most recently, she has even kissed him on the cheek though it was only for support. She didn't seem to realize that he had feelings for her. Lion-O was shocked and angry when he saw Tygra and Cheetara kissing. At first he said that he was okay with the new couple, but later on he talks to Cheetara and says that he wishes that he did feel happy for them. While Lion-O has accepted Cheetara's relationship with Tygra, he was unable to shake the angry feelings of being mislead by Cheetara from all their seemingly tender and intimate moments.
However, after the Spirit Trials, Lion-O claims to have come to about his feelings regarding Tygra and Cheetara's romance. If nothing else, he seems to have gotten over his anger with Cheetara, but it is unclear if he's gotten over his feelings just yet.
