This papercraft is the Cheetara, based on the anime TV series ThunderCats, the paper model is designed by Jp-papercraft. Cheetara was a female Thunderian noble who was also a member of the ThunderCats. She was as lovely as she is brave and cunning.
Cheetara left the doomed planet of Thundera with her fellow Thundercats. Leaving behind the planet, Cheetara was instructed by Jaga to wake Lion-O from sleep, which she did, despite the objections of Snarf. When the Mutants boarded their ship, Cheetara joined the other Thundercats and bravely fought them off. She was given a new outfit and her Staff to help defend herself on their new home by Jaga, along with her fellow Thundercats. Cheetara helped defend the ship from the attacking Mutants, going into suspension to make the journey to the new planet chosen as the Thundercats new home. She was then revived with the others when they reached their new home on Third Earth, and after defeating the Mutants, prepared with the others to build a new home.
When the time of Lion-O's Anointment Trials came, it was Cheetaras task, as the fastest of the Thundercats, to try Lion-O in speed. Lion-O knew he could not beat Cheetara in a race, and so took a dangerous western route as an alternative. Already miles ahead of Lion-O, Cheetara ran into the Mutants, who pursued her on land and underwater. Luckily Panthro arrived in the Thunder tank to assist the outnumbered Cheetara. Cheetara was ahead by a mile and two thirds, eventually coming face to face with Lion-O, they raced alongside one another to the finish of their race, Lion-O knew he could not win the race in this way, but his sheer determination allowed him to. Lion-O at first believed Cheetara had let him win, something which offended her, as the code of Thundera forbade such action. The distance ran actually exhausted Cheetaras super speed, and she told him that his determination not to lose had allowed him to win the race.
In the comics, she has feelings for Tygra and both become a couple and have two Thunderian Cubs WilyCat and WilyCub in the "Dogs of War" series.
Cheetara is a female Thundercat based off a cheetah with an anthropomorphic humanoid physical form, along with an athletic build. She is normally seen wearing a one-piece orange leotard that has her Thundercat emblem at the front of her bosom.
Cheetara is a female warrior, based on the cheetah, who is the only adult female ThunderCat. She has incredible speed, once clocked at 120 m.p.h. on a morning jog. She can maintain this speed only for brief periods, but with it, she is very fast in combat. At her peak, Cheetara can achieve extreme super speeds of up to one mile per 30 seconds, but could only maintain those speeds for approximately two miles; anymore beyond that and she'll risk collapsing due to exhaustion. She also had an ability called her "Sixth Sense", which gave her the ability to see into past and future events, although this was also very taxing, such that she sometimes considered it a curse; these visions could come at random and when she forced them to appear, it could take days or weeks for her to recover. She could also sense danger to others which she attributed to "woman's intuition". Cheetara had a fondness for the "useless" metal gold. In "The Telepathy Beam", her powers no longer harm her. Her weapon was the baton or bo staff, which could extend to any length and shoot out energy beams. It was attached to a cuff on her left arm when not in use.
ThunderCats is an American / Japanese animated television series that was produced by Rankin/Bass Productions debuting in 1984, based on the characters created by Tobin "Ted" Wolf. The series, for which Leonard Starr was the head writer, follows the adventures of a group of cat-like humanoid aliens. The animation was provided by Pacific Animation Corporation. Season 1 of the show aired in 1985, followed by a TV movie entitled ThunderCats - HO! in 1986. Seasons 2, 3, and 4 followed a new format of twenty episodes each, starting with a five-part story.
The series was originally distributed by Rankin-Bass Productions' then-parent company Telepictures Corporation, which would later merge with Lorimar Productions in 1986. In 1989, Lorimar-Telepictures was purchased by and folded into Warner Bros., whose television syndication arm would eventually assume distribution of the show; Warner Bros. have had the rights to the series from that point on.
There were also several comic book series produced: Marvel Comics' version, 1984 to 1988; and five series by Wildstorm, an imprint of DC Comics, beginning in 2003. Items of clothing featuring the ThunderCats logo and DVD boxsets of the original series have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years as nostalgia for the former children's favorite has grown.
