In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games. The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
- Male tribute from District 11. He has the same dark brown skin and golden brown eyes as Rue, but is not otherwise similar in appearance. Katniss refers to him as a "physical wonder" as he stands easily over six feet tall and is very well-built, possessing "muscles like an ox" which give him immense strength. Thresh is quiet and solitary, answering with single words during his interview with Caesar Flickerman. During training, the Careers, recognizing his strength, invite him to join their alliance during the Games but he turns them down. He receives a ten in training, tying him with Cato and Clove and giving him the joint second highest score after Katniss. It is unlikely that Thresh participated in the bloodbath at the Cornucopia; later it is disclosed that he found a wheat field in which he stayed for the majority of the games. No one wanted to go into the tall grass after him so he was left alone. At the Feast, he overhears Clove taunting Katniss that she and Marvel killed his District partner, Rue. Enraged, he grabs Clove just as she is about to torture Katniss and kills her by smashing her skull with a rock. He lets Katniss live after she explains that she was allied with Rue and sang to her as she died and decorated her corpse with flowers. There is no such explanation from her in the film, however, and Thresh simply leaves after killing Clove when he overhears what she did to Rue, but not before telling Katniss that he saved her just one time in gratitude for helping for Rue. Thresh then leaves, taking his pack and the District 2 pack to ensure Cato will chase after him and not Katniss. In the book, Thresh, in fifth place, is killed two days later by Cato. In the movie, it is implied that he was killed fourth last by muttations. Dayo Okeniyi portrays Thresh in the film.
