We do not call the four big cats 'panthers.' I believe you are confusing the two terms, which sound similar but are completely unrelated.

Speaking of which, has there ever been a Leopard character in thundercats?
the color variation is specifically called "Black Panther" not just panther.
Panthera includes Black Panthers.
The naming depends on where you are. In Asia Leopards are called Panthers. In some places in the US Cougars are called Panthers. South and Central America Jaguars are called Panthers. etc. etc.

There are also White Panthers. which is another color variation of the same genus of big cats.
