Chief Thunder


Mystical defender of Native Americans, Chief Thunder is a Native American chief armed with twin tomahawks. Long months have passed since the previous year's Ultratech tournament, and despite the wide-ranging searches of his tribe's supernatural phoenix allies, the Chief's beloved but overambitious younger brother has failed to return in either triumph or defeat. After much agonising over the matter, and to great protest from his tribesfolk, Thunder decides that he must suspect the worst concerning Eagle's fate, and pacifies his people by nominating himself as avenger. The Chief has no dreams of glory, taking up Ultratech's challenge with nothing but vengeance and a primal justice in mind.

Killer Instinct 3


Page Updated:  July 13th, 2014

Thunder is definitely one of Killer Instinct's most memorable characters. Yeah, he could be labeled as a bit of a stereotype, and that might be the reason why Nintendo or Rare decided not to put him in the sequel to Killer Instinct. Even so, that doesn't make him any less cool in my book. Thunder was an instant classic fighting game character... his mannerisms and special moves were particularly memorable and original. He was a fan favorite that really should've returned in KI2.

Thunder was an old school classic fighting game badass, and if you remember how badass he and his combos were back in the day (especially his infinite loops), you're officially cool in my book. No doubt The Chief will make his return if they ever dare to create a Killer Instinct 3. ;) Ultraaaa... Ultraaaaa... Ultraaaa.... (I loved his infinite Ultra). XD
