Spartacus is one of the most famous ancient warriors.He also had an important historical role.Thracians like spartacus were supposed to be one of the best gladiators.

Belisarius is apparently of Thracian-Germanic stock.
 
Some have argued he may be of Slavic extraction because of Beli = White and Tsar = Caesar but that may be a false hope because it is anachronistic.

Not a lot of warriors. Perhaps this is becaquse the Thracians seem to have been quite a civilised and peaceful people. Dionysus the God of Love and Aristotle were Thracian.

Dionysus was the god of wine, not love. Aristotle was Greek, he originated in a colony of Andros in Chalkidiki (Stagira)

Along with Aristotle, I just found out Protagoras was also a Thracian. Makes me wonder how many more ancient philosophers were Thracians I always thought most (particularly pre-socratic) were Turks, perhaps I'm wrong.

It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.

Suethes, a Thracian king mentioned in Xenophon who persuaded him to go to war with him against the Ordasyae.

Well, before Seuthe's time, there was a Thracian King by the name of Teres (475-445 BCE) that was quite at home on the battlefield.  He founded the first real powerful Thracian state and went on many campaigns and personally fought in the battles.  He was also quite a warrior before he became leader of the Odrysian state as well.  He did eventually die on one of his campaigns. 
 
Later, he was succeeded by Sitalkes (431-424 BCE - Teres second son i believe) who tried to follow in his fathers footsteps and invaded Macedon, and did succeed in defeating them at first, but had to eventually retreat due lacking in an effective supply line.  He was killed on his way back and was succeeded by Seuthes I. 
 
On another note, Thracians were also being hired as mercenary's at this time by the Athenians.

    Actualy Aristotel was thracian, at least he think so. And Halcidiki was with mixed population but belongs to Odrisi tribe (thracians) before Alexander the Great, or before his father (I dont remember exactly).

Democritus had thracian origins but for Aristotle i doubt.
