Lieutenant Thire is a playable character in the video game LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
Lieutenant Thire is a playable character in the story mission "Ambush", and is unlocked after completing this mission. He has red markings around his helmet's visor, and also one rectangle above each chest plate on the front of his armour. Additionally, half-way down the torso area are two lines curving upwards and towards the center (one on each side). The belt's buckle is also coloured red as opposed to white. Apart from these features, Thire's character design is the same as a standard The Clone Wars Clone Trooper's. In LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, Thire is usually armed with a rotary blaster cannon, allowing him to rapidly fire at enemies when the player holds down the fire button. The cannon can also be used to destroy certain gold objects when the continuous fire is concentrated on the object. He also has the ability to grapple, perform a single-jump, build, throw an EMP grenade, and place bombs in specially marked Clone Trooper areas. Approximately half-way through the "Ambush", Thire is shot by droids, and his right arm no longer functions. This prompts him to pick up a destroyed Battle Droid's head and use it as a melee weapon instead. Thire can only use the droid's head as a weapon during "Ambush".
CC-4477, nicknamed Thire, was a clone trooper lieutenant who was a member of the Coruscant Guard. He once accompanied Jedi Master Yoda to Rugosa to negotiate with King Katuunko, which was successfully completed when the clones and Jedi Master overcame complications with Separatist forces and Asajj Ventress. Later, Thire went on to become a Commander and ended up leading the Coruscant Guard and its shock troopers. After Darth Sidious dueled Master Yoda in the Galactic Senate chambers, Thire was among the shock troopers searching the area for the missing Jedi Master.
- In The Clone Wars television episode "Ambush", Thire was armed with a blaster rifle, two blaster pistols, and he uses Jek's rocket launcher, not a rotary blaster cannon. Jek, in the episode, uses the cannon primarily, but also carries twin pistols and a rocket launcher, but he never uses it. In the game, they are switched: Thire uses the cannon and Jek uses the launcher. Thire also wore a pauldron and macrobinoculars.
