WilyKat's Wish, part 1 of 3:
Written by Dwight Jon Zimmerman and Ian Rimmer
WilyKat and Lion-O are fooling around on the spaceboards. WilyKat Grabs the Sword of Omens and pretends to be the Lord of the Thundercats, only to be reprimanded by Panthro for his stupid behaviour. He goes off in a huff, saying that if he became leader there would be some big changes. His route takes him to the ruins of the ancient Dyrad city, where he meets Ilsa, last of the Dyrads. She shows him the Waterfall of Wishes and tells him that its magic waters make wishes come true. Sure enough, WilyKat dives into the waters and emerges as a fully grown Thundercat. Back at the Lair, he is shocked to find that Lion-O is now a cub and the tables have been turned.
Assault on the Onyx Pyramid, part 1 of 2:
Written by James Hill
Mumm-Ra decides to set the Thundercats straight by threatening their allies - so he goes and burns the Berbil Village. Enraged, Lion-O declares that the Thundercats (except Wilykiy and WilyKat who stay on Lair watch duty) will go to the Black Pyramid to confront Mumm-Ra once and for all.
The problem is, it's a lot tougher than they thought. Once inside, Mumm-Ra imprisons the Thundercats and creates an illusion, so he can face Lion-O alone. But before he takes care of Lion-O, Mumm-Ra lets him see what has happened to his friends. Cheetara is trapped in a room with no windows or doors... and the walls are closing in. Panthro is in a devastated Warrior Maiden forest, devastated by robots he had been building to protect his friends. Tygra is back at his apartment on Thundera, letting a pair of attractive Thundercats (Leopara and Cougara) convince him to relax and forget about Lion-O.
