ThunderCats Encyclopedia - Character Overview header

This sentient robot has the ability of burrowing through solid objects such as marble and concrete walls and the ground by the various drill bits made of diamonds found in its head, or the larger drill that takes the place of its legs. This large drill can also allow the Driller to seemingly glide above ground or across bodies of water with little to no effort.

This mercenary has crossed paths with the Thundercats many times since their arrival on Third Earth. The Driller was hired by Mumm-Ra to take Panthro by force and take the cat to Mumm-Ra, so the devil priest could clone the Thundercat for another deceptive plan. At another time, Mumm-Ra again hired the robot to make a tunnel from Acid Lake to Cats’ Lair in order to destroy the super fortress out from under the Thundercats. Then, Driller fought Cheetara during a mechanical plague. Finally, the Driller joined Jackalman’s rebellion against the Thundercats and the Mutants alike.
