Chick Hicks is the main villain from Cars, and an ally to Team Nefarious.
Hicks is in a three-way tie with The King and Lightning McQueen and is attempting to win the Piston Cup. His nickname is The Runner-Up as he seems to always lose to The King. He also has the reputation of not racing fairly:
"Chick Hicks is a racing veteran with a chip on his shoulder. He's a ruthless competitor who has cheated his way into more second place finishes than any other car. He's been counting down the seasons to The King's retirement so that he can take over the coveted Dinoco sponsorship, but he never expected such fierce competition from hot shot rookie Lightning McQueen."
"In McQueen's worst nightmares, not only does Chick win the Piston Cup, but he also wins over Dinoco as well."
Chick's primary sponsor is the Hostile Takeover Bank (htB). His car number is 86.
In the championship Piston Cup, Chick ties with The King and Lightning, forcing the three racers to compete in a tiebreaker race. While mocking Lightning, Lightning retaliates by nicknaming him "Thunder", as thunder always comes after lightning, much to Chick's intense annoyance. However, he later shows off with this new nickname after Lightning disappears in Radiator Springs, wooing his fans and stealing Lightning's. During the final race, he makes numerous attempts to force Lightning out of the race, only to be outrun by him in spite of it. During the final lap, he intentionally sideswipes The King, making him spin out of control and crash. When Lightning sees what has happened to The King, he stops before crossing the finish line and goes back to help The King across the line, allowing Chick to win first place and the Piston Cup. However, nobody cheers him on, instead cheering on Lightning for helping The King. The fans then turn on Chick, causing him to have to make a quick getaway with his trophy and making him realize the "Chick Era" just ended as soon as it started.
It is unknown what happens to Chick afterwards, but it appears that he has been denied the sponsorship by Dinoco, as Tex instead tries to offers it to Lightning for his good sportsmanship.
Role in the series
Chick Hicks has not appeared yet in the series, but if Scroopfan decides to make a crossover with Cars, Chick may get the support of Team Nefarious to back him up. however, as soon as everyone turns on him, Team Nefarious will dump him for, outside of not having powers or abilies, is no use to them cause of his failure to provide suppoters to Team Nefarious, and even congureing this strange living car world. aside from that, it's still unclear what became of Chick, but it's presume he's still alive, due to the video game verson of cars he was in, still reprheasing his cheating jerk roles. However, Chicks would come to retire from villainy to star in his own show as deminsitraghted by Cars 3, even though he never really gotten involved with Team Nefarious to begin with and is otherwise still an asshole to McQueen, so, it wasn't exactly a serious loss to Team Nefarious.
