Ty was originally thought to be an orphan in the first adventure, because of the events that took place before the story narrated. He was found as a child and was raised by the Bilbies, who are small, blue Marsupials who live underground. During the opening of Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, Ty falls down a chasm while playing with one of the bilbie boys and discovers the Bunyips, who are large, half-spirit, half-beast creatures. They tell him that his parents were imprisoned by Boss Cass in the Dream Time and that he must find a way to free them. At the end of the game, Boss Cass is taken to prison for his crimes and Ty's Family is set free.

Ty is now known as the famous hero that saved Southern Rivers countless times. Ty and his mates at Bush Rescue have regrouped. Their new H.Q. in town of Coolarangah on the shores of Lake Burramudgee reaches out to help those in need whenever they are in danger. Things have since been quiet since Cass set up a resort island of Cassablanca and “retired” there. Except strange, mysterious things are starting to happen around Southern Rivers like the shadowy figure that is said to have been seen on the outskirts of town. There’s a mystery to be solved for sure.But first Bush Rescue is out to help one of their friends move his Thunder Egg museum.


Ty is a all in all true hero, but he did not talk much in the first game, usually preferring one-liners. By the second and third game, his dialogue had become much more developed and he has shown to be over confident, but still very much heroic. However Ty is not always the best at making plans, infact unlike other video game heroes Ty is less of a leader. Ty makes up for it in compassion and the desire to do good


Thylacine Physiology: Due to being a thylacine, Ty has supernatural agility, enhanced strength as well as the ability to glide as well as bite. It is unknown if Boomerang mastery is apart of thylacine physiology as many thylacine are masters but not all of them. However it might be as Ty is a master in the first game without being trained.


  • Master Combatant: Ty has been shown to be able to fight dangerously with boomerangs. When using his boomerangs in combat depending on the type of rang, Ty can use elemental combat.
  • Boomerang Mastery: Ty can display aerodynamic aptitude for the way of the boomerang allowing them to hit multiple enemies without having to aim directly at them, retrieve and activate distant items. He seemingly throws and catches them naturally with out any thought. He also uses super powered/tricked out that increases his skill and power.
