This article is about the nickname of the mascot for North Dakota State University. For Saturday morning animated television series, see Thundarr the Barbarian.

"Thundar" is the nickname of the mascot for North Dakota State University's Bison athletic program. The name is derived from an additional nickname that the teams use, the "Thundering Herd". Thundar is a caricature of a bison. He is known for his exaggerated features, including a large head and tail. Thundar should not be confused with the similarly named Thunder (the Wolf) of nearby Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

He is part of the 2008 Capital One Mascot team. Entering the competition, he was seeded at #1, but was defeated by Cy from Iowa State University in the final round.
