Panthro is unquestionably the most naturally aggressive of the ThunderCats. Although never one to pick a fight, Panthro is never afraid of battle – whilst this can lead to him being quite headstrong, Panthro’s get-up-and-go, never-say-die personality can also serve as a great motivator for the others. Conversely, mixed in with Panthro’s warrior ways is a kindness and compassion that provides the perfect balance to his personality. Panthro is happiest tinkering with machinery, and has an almost paternal affection for the Thundertank, of which he is very protective and which he regularly refers to as his “baby”! A warrior in the truest sense of the world, Panthro is always a force to be reckoned with

ThunderCats Bullet Point Strengths[]

Panthro is arguably the strongest of all the Thundercats. His physical power is such that he has on a number of occasions, even been able to lift the heavy Thundertank. In addition to his impressive muscle power, Panthro is also an expert martial artist and can defeat any adversary in hand-to-hand combat.

Apart from his brawn, Panthro is also extremely intelligent and a master mechanic. He can build and repair almost anything, from vehicles to weapons to various gadgets. His superb engineering skills have on any occasions given the Thundercats an edge over their opponents the Mutants, who rely mainly on primitive technology.

ThunderCats Bullet Point Weaknesses[]

Panthro's greatest weakness is his fear of bats. For some unexplained reason, Panthro is terrified of bats and often freezes in shock at even the mere sight of one. Villains like Mumm-Ra and Safari Joe have used this weakness against Panthro on a number of occasions.

ThunderCats Bullet Point Weapons[]

His weapon is the nun-chuck, which holds a number of concealed substances, usually gaseous, but generally the weapon is used in hand to hand combat. Panthro also has spikes attached to his shoulder straps that can extend or can spring out attached to some sort of wires or ropes. They can be used both as a weapon and as a defensive measure. Additionally, his Thundercat logo belt buckle is a multi-use tool, for instance a remote-controlled flying observation disc.

ThunderCats Bullet Point Quotes[]

"If you were as mean as you are ugly then maybe we'd be in trouble." - To the Mutants, "Exodus"

"Miserable mummy!"

"Let's go, Thundercats!"

"Rules? What rules?"

"Going to loosen your bones for ya too!"

"When logic doesn't work, use ingenuity. The time to plan for a rainy day is when the sun is shining."
