Lightning McQueen

File:Lightning McQueen 4 5819.png

Generic make and model. Later revealed to be a custom-built race car though he strongly resembles a Dodge Viper or Chevrolet Corvette.

Voiced by:

Owen Wilson (Films)

Keith Ferguson (TV)

  • The Ace
  • Always Someone Better:
    • To Chick Hicks in the first film where Lightning always manages to beat him in the Piston Cup races. Cars 3 shows that the King (the long standing champion) feared Lightning would become this to him and decided to retire before McQueen's arrival heralded the next generation of racers.
    • Inverted in Cars 3 where McQueen is second best to Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Sally calling him "Stickers".
  • Awesome McCoolname: Though it turns out to be a stage name. His real name is Monty McQueen.
  • Character Development
  • Decoy Protagonist: In both Cars 2 and 3.
  • Fish Out of Water: After he first enters Radiator Springs.
  • For Want of a Nail: If he'd changed his tires during the Dinoco 400 or let Mack take a rest at the truck stop, he'd never have wound up in Radiator Springs.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: In-universe, Lightning seems to be very popular in Japan.
  • The Hero: Of the first film.
  • Honor Before Reason: At the end. Happens again in Cars 3 where he insists on staying in the Piston Cup despite it becoming increasingly clear he can't keep up with the new racers.
  • Insufferable Genius: Despite him starting out as a jerkass, he was a legitimately talented racecar.
  • Jerkass: Goes from this to...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Last-Name Basis: A lot of people usually call him "McQueen" or "Mr. McQueen".
  • Last of His Kind: In Cars 3, he becomes the last of his generation in the Piston Cup. Storm takes time to lampshade this.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: His bright red colouring probably helped him on his rise to fame.
  • Meaningful Name
  • Mythology Gag: His number, "95", is a reference to the the year Toy Story was released. Originally it was "57" after the year John Lasseter was born.
  • Reality Ensues: In the final race of both Cars and Cars 3 and all the stadium races in the video games, he never actually shows up to the qualifying rounds meaning he starts dead last.
  • Spanner in the Works: To Chick's dream of becoming the next Piston Cup champion after the King retired. Darell lampshades it.
  • Super Prototype: It's hinted he was this to the generation of racers who began in 2006/2007 as not only did he rack up more wins than any of them, he's still able to keep up with Storm's generation and was shown to be in second place in the final race before his crash.
  • Supporting Protagonist: In the sequels.
  • Vague Age: In Cars 3. The writers suggest he's somewhere in his forties.
  • Weak but Skilled: In Cars 3 when compared to the next-gens. He's not as fast nor able to hold the optimum lines like they can but he has somewhere around 10 years of experience and his more flexible frame is able to squeeze through openings too small for them. While he's not fast enough to win the race, he's consistently able to finish in the top ten against them and qualifies ahead of most of them.
  • What Could Have Been: In the original drafts, his sponsor was ACME.

Voiced by:

Larry the Cable Guy

  • Actor Allusion: Mater is basically a G-rated Larry the Cable Guy, with his voice pitched up a tiny bit. His lines "Get er done", and "I don't care who you are, that's funny right there", are taken straight from his stand-up routines.
  • Break the Cutie: In Cars 2, after discovering that others think that he is just clueless and distracting.
  • Breakout Character: He has spun off into his own series of shorts, and even managed to become the main character of the sequel.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The sequel definitely elevates him to this.
  • Eagle Land: Mater is viewed as a mix of Types 1 and 2 by foreign cars.
  • Flying Car: Mater is able to fly by using his rocket boosters together with his parachute.
  • Genius Ditz: Despite seeming rather simple minded, he has very broad knowledge of car parts and engines and can identify any engine at a glance.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: Being a Genius Ditz, he manages to figure out Axlerod's involvement with the Lemons and his plot to discredit alternative fuel sources.
  • The Hero: Of the sequel.
  • Knighting: By the Queen of England herself.
  • Last-Name Basis
  • Mistaken for Spies: By Holley and Finn, partially as a result of his fanciful storytelling.
  • Mysterious Past: Though most of Mater's tall tales seem false, there's usually something at the end which confirms it did really happen which raises more than a few questions about where he came from.
  • Out of Focus: In Cars 3.
  • The Pollyana
  • Southern-Fried Genius: See Genius Ditz above.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: In the sequel, where he's crucial to the plot and even gets top billing.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Of his own "Tall Tales" series.
  • What Could Have Been: He was a Jerkass to end all Jerkasses in early drafts of the original film.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: The Lemons plant a time bomb in his air filter as a backup plan to kill Lightning.

  • Affectionate Nickname: "Stickers" for Lightning, originally to tease him about having stickers instead of headlights. In the second film, she still calls him this, even after he gets actual headlights installed.
  • The Chick
  • Embarrassing Tattoo
  • Hello, Attorney!: Lightning is immediately smitten when he sees her.
  • Official Couple: With Lightning.
  • Out of Focus: Her only significant appearance is in the first film. After that, she has virtually no role in the franchise and only appears in one of the many videogames.

Voiced by:

Richard Petty

  • Doomed Moral Victor: Although he doesn’t die, he becomes severely injured by a crash caused by Chick Hicks during the final lap of the tie-breaker race.
  • History Repeats: His crash heavily resembles Doc's.
  • Ink Suit Actor: The King is based on a racecar his actor, Richard Petty, owned; the Plymouth Superbird.
  • Know When to Fold'Em: Cars 3 reveals that he knew when to retire when McQueen came onto the scene as the King knew that meant a generation of faster cars was on its way.
  • The Mentor: Tried to be this to Lightning. Becomes this to his nephew, Cal Weathers, in Cars 3.
  • Reality Subtext: His near-fatal crash, caused by Chick Hicks is a frame-by-frame recreation of a particular crash his actor lived through.

Chick Hicks

 1986 Buick Regal

Voiced by:

Michael Keaton

  • Arrogant Racer Guy
  • Big Bad: Of the first film.
  • Classic Villain
  • Evil Counterpart: To Lightning McQueen. Chick starts off as a more extreme version of McQueen, but eventually becomes this after Lightning undergoes Character Development.
  • Glory Days: In Cars 3, he always brings up his single win to start any sentence.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Chick is deeply envious The King’s status as Dinoco’s golden boy. Plus he’s green to boot.
  • Jerkass: Through and through.
  • Karma Houdini: Getting booed off the stage is literally the only punishment he received for ramming the King off the track. As the video games show, he kept racing, kept his sponsorships and fanbase while having had enough of a reputation to start a racing academy of his own. In Cars 3, he had enough good press to start a frequently watched television show that's featured at every Piston Cup race.
    • In the first video game, he outright hired criminals to steal from Lightning and didn't get any form of punishment despite the criminals confessing it was Chick who hired them.
  • Mythology Gag: His number, "86", is a reference to the year Pixar was founded.
  • Porn Stache: His grill resembles one.
  • Pyrrhic Villainy: He wins the Piston Cup, but only because he caused The King to crash horribly and Lightning went back to help him. Chick doesn’t get his Dinoco sponsor like he dreamed and is booed off the stage at the cup presentation. Then again it's shown that he faced zero real consequences for that.
  • Unnecessary Roughness: He causes a massive thirty-car pileup in the opening to try and shake McQueen, and later causes The King to crash in the tie-breaker match.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: While unmentioned in the second film, the third reveals he's become a talk show host.

Jackson Storm

  • Advertised Extra: He has a big presence in the film, but not as big as the trailers would have you believe.
  • Always Someone Better: To Lightning McQueen and his generation of racers.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: While Sterling seeks to make Lightning retire from racing and become his sponsor, Jackson is the villain who directly opposes Lightning.
  • Boring Yet Practical: His wins come from applying mathematics and physics to the races to find the optimum racing lines and how to navigate around his fellows.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Lightning.
  • Flat Character: He's a talented cocky racer...and that's about it.
  • Foil:
    • To pre-Character Development Lightning. As much of a cocky dick as Lightning was, he legitimately respected the older generations such as Doc and the King. Storm doesn't.
    • To Chick. Chick rammed other racers left and right and was not above sabotaging his opponents. As much of an absolute dick as Storm is, he doesn't resort to any of that and just wins by being flat out faster than everyone else. While rude, he doesn't really do anything, barring ramming Cruze, that could be considered a villainous act.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After bashing on McQueen, Storm's perfect winning streak is taken from him by someone who McQueen trained.
  • Meaningful Name: As lightning comes before thunder, storms come before lightning.
  • Shadow Archetype: Like Chick before him, Storm is who Lightning would have become without crashing in Radiator Springs.
  • Skilled but Naive: He's very fast and can find the optimum racing lines but his success comes from racing people who just can't keep up with him or have even less experience than he does. When against Cruz, who's fast enough to keep up and has real world experience, his mask of confidence starts to break.
    • In the finale, Lightning even realizes Storm is this as despite his confidence, he's constantly trying to mess with the heads of more experienced racers showing that Storm knows he's not infallible and needed to keep Lightning's morale down to win.
  • Smug Super
  • Super Prototype: Like Lightning, he's shown to be much better than the other racers of his generation.
  • Token Evil Teammate: To the next-gen Piston Cup racers.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he loses to Cruz Ramirez.
  • Would Hit a Girl

Cruz Ramirez

  • Always Someone Better: To Lightning and Jackson.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Of Lightning McQueen and the Piston Cup in general.
  • Foil:
    • To Lightning. He never doubted his skills as a rookie and shot to the top while Cruz was too scared to even start her first race.
    • To Jackson. Both are hi-tech, next-gen cars but Cruz looks up to the older generation and wants to emulate them while Jackson is only obsessed with his superiority.
  • Genki Girl
  • Legacy Character: She takes on Doc Hudson's number of "51".
  • Non Standard Character Design: Much like Lightning, she doesn't look much like her fellow racers. Even after being sponsored by Dinoco, she keeps her yellow paint instead of the traditional blue despite Lightning and Chick both drooling over being painted Dinoco blue in the first film.
  • The Power of Hate: Obviously downplayed but she says negative feelings should be used to push someone forward.
  • Stepford Smiler: While super peppy in the racing centre, it masks her sadness at not being a racer herself.


  • Bad Boss: To Lightning and Cruz. At the end, Mater outright says he's not a nice person, despite making quality mudflaps at reasonable prices.
  • Big Bad: Much like Francesco in Cars 2, Storm doesn't do anything villainous like Chick would. As such Sterling is the true main antagonist as he holds the fate of Lightning's career in his metaphorical hands.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Very affable on the surface, but clearly only cares for the money he can get from Lightning's image.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Tex Dinoco.
  • It's All About Me: Well the money he can make. Which is why it simply takes a lot of money from Tex to make him go away.
  • Jerkass
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Though he generalized the situation, he was right in saying Lightning's reputation was being damaged by repeated losses and that Cruz was (originally) just a trainer and unprepared for the Piston Cup circuit.

Bobby Swift

  • Out of Focus: Compared to Cal, Bobby doesn't get much characterization.
  • Put on a Bus: He's fired and replaced hours before the final race of the season. It happens so suddenly that Lightning didn't know of it until another car came out of the Octane Gain garage.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Cal and Lightning.

Cal Weathers

  • Delayed Reaction: In the opening, Lightning passes Cal by telling his blinker's on. It takes Cal a few seconds to remember he doesn't have a blinker.
  • Go Out with a Smile: It's a sad smile, but he tells Lightning that he'll always value their friendship as he leaves the track.
  • Know When to Fold'Em: Thanks to his uncle, he knew to pull out when the field became increasingly dominated by faster cars. He's tellingly the first one to actually retire. Everyone else was fired and replaced.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Good comeback Cal."
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Colour coded version with Lightning. Cal knew it was time to call it quits and retired with quiet dignity while Lightning kept going and eventually crashed.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Bobby and Lightning.


Next-Gen Piston Cup Racers

  • Advertised Extra: Several of them were hyped up by marketing materials but the racers only have a role in the opening and closing races.
  • Everyone Has Standards: In a Freeze-Frame Bonus, you can two of them sporting horrified expressions when McQueen crashes.
  • Not So Different: To their predecessors. When not racing, they joke around as much as the previous generation of racers.
  • Perpetual Frowner: When they're on the track, they're almost always serious.
  • Red Herring: The trailers made it seem as though they were antagonistic and trying to take over the Piston Cup. They're just been hired by their sponsors and aren't evil.
  • Skilled but Naive: They're all very fast and able to hold perfect racing lines but they've only got a few weeks worth of experience. Cruz and Storm are the only ones among them with any victories to their name and Lightning is able to keep up with most of them with ease.
  • This Cannot Be!: When Lightning begins working his way up the ranks in the Florida 500. A few of them are legitimately caught off guard that he can not only keep up but that he avoided the wreck.
