— Billy in Doppel-Gamers


William "Billy" Kent Thunderman is one of the main characters of The Thundermans. He is the middle child and the youngest son of Barb and Hank Thunderman. Billy is portrayed by Diego Velazquez.

Billy, like the rest of the Thundermans, has superpowers and is aspiring to become a superhero. His superpower is Super-Speed as well as Bladder Control (as stated by him in Season 3 Episode 23 "Stealing Home").

Biography

Billy was born on the way to Metroburg Hospital as revealed in the episode, A Hero Is Born. He moved to Hiddenville with the rest of the Thundermans and enrolled in Hiddenville Elementary School with his sister Nora.

Billy is not the smartest kid but Nora helps him figure things out, both in school and at home. In Mall Time Crooks, it's revealed that the Thundermans take turns in explaining things to Billy. After Billy's fight with Nora in Are You Afraid of the Park?, Billy uses Max to feed him thoughts.

In Adventures in Supersitting, it is revealed that Billy doesn't have other friends besides Nora and this has been repeated multiple times throughout the series. Billy worries about losing Nora in Paging Dr. Thunderman when he thought Nora was transferring to another school because he would have no one to play with. In Exit Stage Theft, Billy makes up a fake friend called "Luigi Marinara" when he gets jealous of Nora spending more time with Chloe than him. He came up with the name, when he saw a jar of Luigi's Marinara Sauce on the counter. It doesn't take Nora or Chloe very long to find out that "Luigi" is just Billy dressed up like someone else.

Billy has had multiple life-threatening moments. He almost dies in Thundersense; after bouncing on a trampoline with his Super-Speed and getting stuck on a breaking gutter on the roof. Luckily, Phoebe saves him. In Shred It Go, Billy almost got shredded by the shredder machine until Nora came in to save him. In Thunder in Paradise, Billy almost gets sent out to sea as a result of Phoebe needing a distraction to go to a volcano.

The Thunder Twins turn Billy into a rat in The Amazing Rat Race so that he can win a rat race for them. However, he enjoys being a rat more than being a human and therefore refuses to turn back to human. He only accepts to turn back to human after realizing that Nora is afraid of rats. During the flamingo-flu season in Phoebe vs. Max: The Sequel, Billy almost turns into a flamingo because he's afraid of taking the superbug. But with Chloe's help, he gains the courage to take the bug.

In Thundermans: Secret Revealed, Billy fails the Hero League aptitude test, getting only 22% because he answered "triangle" for everything. Nora feels bad for him and swaps her high score with Billy's, making him think he is very smart. But when Nora realizes that he is at risk of hurting himself, she tells him the truth. This, in addition to Max taking away his powers, makes Billy think that he will never be a superhero. After the superpowers are restored, Billy gets Nora's Heat Vision but doesn't want them because he thinks he's not cut to be a superhero. However, when the supervillain Fairy Pinch-ess captures Nora, Billy gets the courage and saves Nora. He then helps get the rest of the people to safety.

In Smells Like Team Spirit, it is revealed that Billy is easily gullible. Dr. Colosso uses this to take advantage of Billy and make him steal fresh vegetables for him. Nora later helps him figure out that Dr. Colosso is using him and they work together with Chloe to get back on Colosso.

Billy starts superhero training with Nora in 21 Dump Street after re-enacting how they defeated Fairy Pinch-ess to prove that they're ready for training.

By Z's All That, Billy has learned how to use his superspeed to spin his hands really fast causing the wind around to form some sort of a tornado. This trick is called "armnadoes". Phoebe and Max are so impressed by Billy's armnadoes skill that they decide to drop Nora and choose Billy as their Lil Z (for the Z-Force Lil Z Mentor program). They help take Billy's armnadoes to the next level by showing him how to make them more powerful and bigger. They also help him learn how to spin his body around, forming a vertical tornado. When Nora learns what happens and comes to face off her siblings, it leads to a huge disaster which leaves the Thunder Twins trapped under a giant pizza and a guard tiger ready to attack them. Nora saves them from the pizza and Billy saves them from the tiger using his armnadoes. The twins agree to train both Billy and Nora as their Lil Z's. They apologize to Billy for pushing him too hard.

Personality

Billy stands out from the rest of the Thundermans family in that he is eager, sweet, friendly Billy is very dim-witted, but he is always cheerful and optimistic. While his siblings are manipulative and competitive, Billy tries to help them and agree to their plans. Phoebe, Max, and Nora often take advantage of his sweetness to make him do things for them. Billy has a hard time keeping secrets and ends up exposing them accidentally, most of the time.

Relationships

Family

Nora Thunderman

Main article: Billy and Nora
  • Nora is Billy's younger sister, and even though Nora constantly shoots lasers at Billy and sometimes is annoyed, they have a good relationship. Billy thinks of Nora as his best friend. When Nora was accepted in a different school, Billy was devastated until he found out that she was not going to attend anymore.

Chloe Thunderman

  • Chloe is Billy's youngest sister. They hang out a lot with Nora. She is probably more intelligent than Billy as seen in many episodes. The two of them, and Hank, are the fastest travelers in the world with Chloe's teleportation, Billy's super-speed, and Hank's flying.

Max Thunderman

  • Max is Billy's older brother. He and Max are kind of similar. They hang out on and off, but they are not the nicest to each other, and Max often manipulates Billy for his personal gains as he's easily gullible. However, Billy does look up to him a little bit. When he and Nora got into their biggest fight ever in Are You Afraid of the Park?, he turned to Max.

Phoebe Thunderman

  • Phoebe is Billy's older sister. They are similar in that they are both naturally friendly and are terrible at keeping secrets. They don't hang out very much, and Phoebe has sometimes manipulated Billy for her personal gains. Billy often does tease Phoebe as well.
  • In Cookie Mistake, Billy and Phoebe have the time to bond in Sweet Gam Gam's Cookie Palace.

Hank Thunderman

  • Hank is Billy's father. While Billy does think that he has somewhat of a lame personality, he really looks up to him. They are also the only ones who know that he mailed Nora to Abu Dhabi right after she was born.
  • In You Stole My Thunder, Man, Hank wanted to spend time with Billy so they collect rocks because Billy realizes that he likes gathering rocks.

Barb Thunderman

  • Barb is Billy's mother. Billy thinks that she is somewhat lame, and he looks up to her a lot less than he does Hank.

Powers 

  • Superhuman Speed:Billy's primal power is super speed. He is described as "the fastest boy alive" making a clear reference to the character Flash. Billy can move at a speed higher than the speed of light, although he doesn't reach that speed right at the start, as as shown in the halowwenn episode, he couldn't dodge a lightning bolt. However, this is contradictory as he manages to deflect Nora's rays, which move at the speed of light.
    • Cyclone Spinning/Tornado Creation: By rotating his arms at super speed or running in a circular motion, Billy can create strong wind vortices.
    • Super fast reflexes:Because of his super speed, Billy has extremely fast reflexes. He manages to dodge Nora's rays, which move at the speed of light, jump rope at super speed, and possibly see the world in slow motion.
    • Speed aura: Billy is able to run at high speeds without getting burned or destroying everything around him. So, it is evident that he unwittingly creates invisible protection against the negative effects of speed.
    • Cell Regeneration:Billy is able to regenerate quickly. He's always getting burned by Nora's rays, but he's always fine because he instantly regenerates his wounds.
    • Bladder Control:Billy can go months without going to the bathroom.
    • Superhero Vision:Billy can see ghosts.
    • Cosmic awareness:Billy has incredible space awareness, able to travel at super speed around the world without getting lost.
    • Super strength: Because of his super speed, Billy has super strength. Although he doesn't even come close to his father, he can carry heavy things when he runs, like his sister, who weighed approximately forty-six kilos.

Power Swap

  • Heat Vision: Billy accidentally gets Nora's main powers instead of his own superpower when Max returned his power with a short-circuit orb. However, Billy gets his powers back by Thundermans: Banished!.
