Road Runner is a major character in the Looney Tunes franchise. Vocalizes only with a signature sound, "Beep, beep", and an occasional tongue noise. The "Beep, beep" was recorded by Paul Julian. He is always one step ahead of his predator, Wile E. Coyote.
He is also voiced by Frank Welker in the TV show, The Looney Tunes Show.
Like the rest of the Looney Tunes characters, he also got a new look in The Looney Tunes Show.
He is also one of a few characters that only makes sound effects, the other being Wile E. Coyote (although he does not make any sound effects, like Road Runner does).
Road Runner is a tall bird with long, sky-blue body and tail, the stretched legs, yellow beak, and blue feather.
According to the creators of Looney Tunes franchise, Road Runnner has been described as a cheerful-hearted bird creature with the fastest speed powers that can help to have countless victories over Wile E. Coyote.
Road Runner is always a fun-loving and happy creature who always loves good endings after besting and outsmarting the mad genius villain. However, he proves to be a decent animal underneath. Road Runner bears no ill will against Wile E. for chasing him, and seems to appreciate that's just nature's way. In fact, Rule #1 prohibits the the bird from ever causing the coyote any direct harm. Likewise, in the Space Jam movies, the Road Runner is more than willing to team up with the other Looney Tunes against major threats and helping Michael Jordon and James LeBron respectively.
Powers and Abilities
Road Runner is the ones of the two fastest heroes in Looney Tunes (alongside Speedy Gonzales). He possesses the power of speed. Road Runner was capable of avoiding confrontation or combat against the enemies. His powers are shown for the following:
Acceleration: Road Runner can accelerate while doing speeds from zero level to hyper speed level.
Supernatural Speed: Road Runner is completely faster than the rest of enemies and villains.
Enhanced Speed: Road Runner can move much faster than the average member of their species, beyond what can be emulated via natural training and with little to no maintaining. However, this power is not without any ill effects, as it can strain the body, although some users may be resistant or even immune to the effects of high speed travel, including acceleration, friction, g-force, inertia, etc.
Avian Physiology: Road Runner with this ability either is or can mimic/transform into birds, either every species, family, or a single species.
Tailwing Generation Road Runner can move fast enough to generate a tailwind around and behind them, pushing/throwing things around/behind them.
