Thak was killed by Conan in a great brawl, whereupon shortly after Nabonidus also meets his bloody end. Conan commented after their battle that he had come to consider Thak as a man, rather than an animal. Of the many humanoid enemies Conan had faced throughout his adventures, the mighty Thak was among the strongest.
Behind the scenesEdit
Although pure speculation, Thak and his kind were possibly based on the extinct hominids known as Australopithicines, creatures considered to be somewhere between man and ape on the evolutionary scale.
