What is the opposite of thermal energy?

There is no opposite of thermal energy.Thermal energy is energy that comes from heat, and therefore comparable to temperature.

How are temperature and thermal energy alike?

If you increase temperature you increase thermal energy.If you double the amount you have the temperature does not change but the thermal energy does.Temperature and thermal energy are the same since they both use kinetic energy. Temperature uses the thermal energy when the heat measures the average of the kinetic energy. The thermal energy uses the kinetic energy, when it's averged together with the kinetic enery and the others to make the thermal energy.==========================Answer #2:Wow !Temperature is to thermal energy as depth is to water.
