The VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}' characters are listed in alphabetical order.

[[index]]

* Characters/SkylandersVillains have their own page.

[[/index]]

! Tropes applying to all Skylanders:
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Most Skylanders only get a toy for one, maybe two releases and that's it; though old toys can be used in newer games. This is especially true for "gimmick" Skylanders such as Giants and Trap Masters, who by their very nature will never be re-released. Notably averted in games, however, as every Skylander is playable in every game past its release.
* ElementalPowers: Each Skylander belongs to one of ten elements: [[BlowYouAway Air]], [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[FunctionalMagic Magic]], [[GadgeteerGenius Tech]], [[GreenThumb Life]], [[TheUndead Undead]], [[LightEmUp Light]], and [[CastingAShadow Dark]].
* EliteArmy: The Eon's Elite variants are stronger than their regular counterparts.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Started off with a bang at 32 playable Skylanders, which has only skyrocketed over the years. As of ''Imaginators'', there are currently '''175 individual Skylanders''', not including variants, Series 2+ or Supercharger versions.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Among all Skylanders, Gill Grunt, Pop Fizz, and Jet-Vac. They're the only Skylanders to have appeared in every game so far since their debut.

!! Bash

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bashfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Rock and roll!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Bash

Ever since he was a young dragon, Bash has wished to fly. In an attempt to build up enough momentum to do so, he learned how to curl into a ball and roll at incredible speed. This training has toughened his skin into natural armor, but hasn't gotten him airborne as he'd hoped.

* {{Balloonacy}}: [[PunnyName Birthday Bash]], an alter ego in ''Lost Islands'' uses a large cluster of helium balloons to finally get airborne.
* BerserkButton: Bash really doesn't like having the fact he can't fly mentioned.
* BewareMyStingerTail: It's got a spiked ball at its end, and as a ChargedAttack, it packs THE strongest wallop per hit of any (non-Giant) Skylander.
* CarryABigStick: His tail has a mace head on it, making it act like one. One of the upgrades on his "Granite Dragon" path is even named "Mace of Destruction".
* DinosaursAreDragons: Officially a dragon, but has a lot of saurian characteristics. Lampshaded with his Soul Gem upgrade, which gives him a triceratops helmet.
* DishingOutDirt: One of his powers has him making ''giant fists'' made of stone. He can also smack these around, making them like a projectile.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: With a RollingAttack ''and'' a SpinAttack.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Earth element.
* RollingAttack: One of his main attacks is to roll into enemies.
* SpinAttack: He can swing his tail to attack in a short distance around him.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: His first upgrade allows him to deflect shots with his Tail Swipe.

!! Boomer

[[quoteright:277:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boomerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Bring the boom!"''

Like most trolls, Boomer loves to [[StuffBlowingUp blow things up]]. But he wasn't interested in the trolls' war of conquest, so he turned against his kin and now blows stuff up FOR JUSTICE!

* ArtificialLimbs: WordOfGod claims his hands and feet are cybernetic, [[NoodleIncident due to an accident.]]
* CartoonBomb: His troll bombs are styled like this.
* ChargedAttack: The final upgrade of his "Clobber Troll" path is the ability to charge up his ground slam for an extra-damage slam.
* DelayedExplosion: Weaponized with one of his upgrades, which allows him to delay the explosion of a thrown dynamite stick. Helps for getting slightly more range out of a toss or for baiting enemies.
* GroundPunch: His secondary attack is slamming his fists on the ground to create a shockwave.
* HeelFaceTurn: Was originally in the troll army, but defected.
* MadBomber: He's a ''good'' version however.
** This is apparently a common trait among trolls. According to a scroll found in game, all their games are for some reason called "Boom!". Boomer just takes this trope UpToEleven as far as his species goes.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: The trolls' love of war and conquest didn't sit well with him. So he saved a town from the trolls and defected. He's apparently the only troll to ever earn the honor of being a Skylander.
* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Trolls in the ''Skylanders'' universe tend to be associated with technology and explosives. Boomer is light on the former, but ''very'' heavy on the latter.
* ShockwaveStomp: The result of his slamming attack. It can be upgraded to stun on his "Clobber Troll" upgrade path.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Has access to both sticks of dynamite and troll bombs.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In the book Machine of Doom, he tries to drown out Gill Grunt's singing by using sticks of dynamite as earplugs....
* YourAnswerToEverything: Three words: "BLOW IT UP!!"

!! Camo

[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/camofigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fruit punch!"''

Camo is half-plant due to being hatched at the roots of the Tree of Life. As a result, he can make fruits and vegetables grow to the point of bursting almost instantly. Eon first noticed him when a melon blew up in his face, convincing the young dragon to join the Skylanders.

* AlmightyJanitor: Doubles as Eon's personal gardener.
* BreathWeapon: He spits life energy that take the shape of balls of lights.
* DashingHispanic: The portrayal of his voice, as of ''Giants''.
* DeployableCover: His melon ring can double as a shield, since it surrounds him and causes him to briefly hide underground. The final upgrade on his "Melon Master" path encourages this by allowing the melon ring to be held indefinitely.
* EdibleAmmunition: He can unlock the ability to grow a ring of melons around him, which proceed to launch out and blow up upon contact with an enemy.
* GreenThumb: He has the ability to make plants grow [[StuffBlowingUp explosively]] fast.
* HealThyself: Get three of his BreathWeapon projectiles to circle around him at once and his HP will regenerate for a short time.
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Plant
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Life element.
* OrbitingParticleShield: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, holding the attack button down allows up to three of his BreathWeapon projectiles to orbit around him for protection.
* PlantPerson: A plant-dragon hybrid, shown by his green coloration and leaf tail.
* ThePrankster: A rather notorious one, in-universe. Likes to use his plant powers for mayhem.
* StuffBlowingUp: Camo's secondary attack is to lay down a vine of exploding ''melons''. One of his upgrade paths specializes in improving it, allowing him to quickly lay down a large string of explosives in front of him.

!! Chop Chop

[[quoteright:178:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chopchopfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Slice and dice!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Chop Chop, Elite Chop Chop

Created by the ancient Arkeyans with a fusion of technology and undead magic, Chop Chop is a skilled warrior with an indestructible shield. He has spent centuries looking for the vanished Arkeyans before being recruited as a Skylander.

* AudibleSharpness: His sword makes a noticeable metallic sound every time it's swung; to say nothing of when it actually hits something.
* AttackReflector: An innate ability of his shield.
* BadassGrandpa: Being an Arkeyan, he's close to being 10,000 years old.
* {{BFS}}: Should you take his "Vampiric Warrior" path, his sword eventually becomes as large as himself.
* CoolSword: It's even explicitly stated to be indestructible.
* CounterAttack: On his "Undead Defender" path, he gains the ability to absorb damage with his shield, then release it by using his shield bash.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Like with other Undead Skylanders, but applies double due to him being an [[AbusivePrecursors Arkeyan]] creation.
* DualWielding: His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him replace his shield with a second CoolSword.
* DemBones: One that's at least partially artificial.
* FriendToAllChildren: Played with. While he at least tries to be by using his shield to go take children sledging, their screams make it unclear if they actually like it or not.
* TheLeader: For the Undead element.
* LifeDrain: One of his upgrades gives him a chance of recovering health when attacking enemies with his sword.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: His shield can block attacks and reflect projectiles, but he can only hold it up for so long.
* {{Magitek}}: The Arkeyans are said to have found the connection between technology and magic, and Chop Chop is a demonstration of that.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: To the Arkeyans.
* ShieldBash: An early upgrade allows him to do this while his shield's up, thanks to a spike being added to the front. On the "Undead Defender" path, it can be upgraded to stun as well.

!! Cynder

[[quoteright:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cynderfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Volts and Lightning!"''

Kidnapped as an egg by the evil dragon Malefor, Cynder was raised in the ways of darkness until Spyro rescued her. ([[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Wait, this sounds familiar...]]) Anyway, she wishes to make up for all the evil she's done under Malefor, but many are wary of the dark powers she still commands.

* ActionGirl
* TheAtoner: Just like her ''Legend of Spyro'' counterpart.
* BackFromTheDead: The Mabu kid Quigly asks if this happened to her in ''Spyro's Adventure''.
* CastingAShadow /MakeMeWannaShout: [[Videogame/TheLegendOfSpyro Her shadow and fear abilities are back.]]
* BroadStrokes: Cynder's bio essentially states that some version of ''The Legend of Spyro'' trilogy happened in this continuity.
** WordOfGod confirms that Cynder's origins in ''Skylanders'' and her traits from ''The Legend of Spyro'' trilogy is intentionally left ambiguous, leaving it to longtime Spyro the Dragon fans to use their own imaginations to fill in the blanks.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* GothGirlsKnowMagic: Her skills and upgrades info. in Eon's guide for Spyro's Adventure, Eon likes to compare her to a goth, at least when talking about her Shadow dash/strike["like an angry goth/like an even angrier goth"].
* HeelFaceTurn: Just like her ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' counterpart.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Undead element.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can be snarky, brooding and has a dislike for jokes or pranks, but she still shares the same goal of all Skylanders: protect the world of Skylands from the forces of evil.
* PutOnABus: Does not get a repose for Trap Team.
** TheBusCameBack: Cynder returns to the spotlight in ''Imaginators'' as a storyline [=NPC=] in a level pack story.
* [[HairColorDissonance Scale Color Dissonance]]/PurpleIsTheNewBlack: In the first two ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' games Cynder was black and red - in Skylanders she is now bright purple and pink, with even higher contrast than in ''Dawn of the Dragon''.
* ShockAndAwe: Cynder's primary attack is her lightning breath.
* SpreadShot: Her lightning breath can hit multiple enemies across a wide area, even without upgrades.

!! Dino-Rang

[[quoteright:254:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dinorangfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Come rang or shine!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Dino-Rang

Dino-Rang came to the Skylands in a freak portal accident, taken from his home and his people far away. While helping the Skylanders fight for justice, he searches for the mythical Twin Diamond Boomerangs, believing they'll lead him to his destiny.

* AwesomeAussie: His voice brings this to mind.
* BattleBoomerang: His main weapon. Oddly, while they do return to him, they also shatter when they hit anything, unless a path-specific upgrade is bought.
* BerserkButton: According to his biography, he hates being referred as a [[DinosaursAreDragons dragon]].
* CulturedBadass: According to the Book of Elements, he's a very talented ballroom dancer.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Once accidentally launched his dance partner screaming into the air while attempting a simple lift maneuver. She has yet to come back down.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The first dinosaur Skylander, and the only one until Slobber Tooth.
* PinballProjectile: His boomerangs become this with his "Dancing Boomerangs" upgrade.
* ProjectilePocketing: His Soul Gem ability allows this for his boomerangs.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Comes from a hunter tribe that uses boomerangs as their weapons.
* TrapMaster: His Stonefist Trap ability.

!! Double Trouble

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doubletroublefigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Boom shock-a-laka!"''

-> Notable variants: Royal Double Trouble

Hailing from the tropical regions of Skylands, Double Trouble was searching for spell ingredients when he found a lily said to multiply a spell's power. But after he ate it, he found it multiplied something else, giving him the ability to make half-size, exploding copies of himself.

* ActionBomb: His copies. They also draw attacks away from him.
* ChainLightning: His Wow Pow upgrade allows his Eldritch Beam to chain to different foes.
* CoolMask: A huge tribal mask.
* CloneDegeneration: His clones are much smaller than him. And explosive.
* ExpendableClone: They serve as his secondary attack, even.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: His reason for not getting mad when the lily's ability backfired by multiplying him instead of his magic spell's power is because he was incredibly lonely, prior to that event.
* MesACrowd: he can create many doubles of himself, though they don't have the same abilities as him and are mostly mobile explosives.
* ShoutOut: In ''Giants'', he sings the "level complete" music from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' after defeating a large slew of Mooks.
* WitchDoctor: His design inspiration, shown by his tribal mask, feathers, and staff.

!! Drill Sergeant

[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drillseargantfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Licensed to drill!"''

An ancient robot built by the Arkeyans, Drill Sergeant was buried for centuries until Terrafin wound up finding and reactivating him. Drill Sergeant swore to be Terrafin's servant in thanks, but Terrafin told him not to serve him at all - an order that Drill Sergeant has followed ever since.

* DrillTank
* RocketPunch
* RobotBuddy
* MoreDakka: His Auto-blaster.
* ThisIsADrill
* VerbalTic: Peppers his speech with beeping noises. [[UnsoundEffect Which are said rather than emitted.]]

!! Drobot

[[quoteright:248:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drobotfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Blink and destroy!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Drobot

Drobot was always fascinated by mechanical devices, so when he found some LostTechnology he studied it and used to build a set of armor. His new gear includes lasers, spinning gear shooters, flight enhancement gear, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a deep booming voice synthesizer]], all of which he uses to defend the Skylands.

* EyeBeams / FrickinLaserBeams : His primary attack is to shoot rapidfire, long-range energy beams from his eyes. The "Master Blaster" path of upgrades also adds wing blasters.
* GadgeteerGenius: Drobot built his suit of PoweredArmor himself using some lost technology he came across and his backstory implies he tinkered around a good bit beforehand.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Tech element.
* PinballProjectile: Drobot's Bladegears bounce off of walls, even without upgrades. They can also be upgraded into exploding bladegears.
* PlayerGuidedMissile: Drobot's "Wow Pow" ability is a large remote-controlled Bladegear.
* PowerGlows: The orange orb on [=LightCore=] Drobot's pack lights up.
* PoweredArmor: Laser blasts, spinning gear projectiles, a robotic voice, and jet-powered flight thrusters. It's unclear whether Drobot actually ''has'' any wings underneath that armor.
** His official bio implies he does, just that they're covered under flight enhancement technology.
* ShoutOut: To ShootEmUp games. His "Hover Mode" upgrade even allows him to fly while facing in one direction, just like in a VerticalScrollingShooter!
* SpreadShot: His secondary attack is to launch a pair of metal blade-gears that can rebound off of walls; the "Clockwork Dragon" path of upgrades allows him to launch three at once.

!! Eruptor

[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eruptorfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Born to burn!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Eruptor, Volcanic Eruptor, Elite Eruptor

Eruptor's people once lived deep underneath a volcano until an eruption sent everything up to the surface. As for Eruptor himself, he's said to have an absolutely volcanic temper.

* BalloonBelly: When he uses his Wow Pow move Lava Barf, his belly bulges.
* CowardlyLion: In direct contrast to his usual depiction as possessing a HairTriggerTemper, in ''Imaginators'', Eruptor is easily frightened by bugs or rats and is usually scared to some degree. The riskiest thing he does is ''bake a cake'' which, true to form, gets assaulted by a force of... bugs and rats.
* TheDitz: When he isn't mad, he's fantastically unaware of himself. Exemplified in the opening of the Swap Force reveal trailer.
-> '''Eruptor:''' "How come they never say the final two numbers?"
-> '''Pop Fizz:''' "So it's really quiet when the show starts!"
-> '''Eruptor:''' "Oh yeah, that makes sense. [[HypocriticalHumor Someone talking over the opening would be so annoying!]]"
* FingerlessHands: As Lava Lance Eruptor, he is capable of driving his Burn-Cycle and wielding a lance with ease, despite having no fingers.
* {{Gasshole}}: As seen in the "Boomtime" commercial.
-> '''Eruptor''': When I get in there, I'm gonna... BUUUUUURRRP!
-> '''Terrafin''': Shoot, Eruptor!
** Returns with a vengeance in ''Imaginators'', where simply getting him nervous is enough to get him belching. Of course, he spends most of the storyline nervous.
* HairTriggerTemper
* TheLeader: For the Fire element.
* MagmaMan
* ObliviousToHisOwnDescription: See the quote under TheDitz, above.
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Eruptor's mouth glows.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Not only is he often depicted as puking up large quantities of lava in trailers and cinematics, but his Series 3 figure is actually ''called'' "Lava Barf Eruptor".
** One of his attacks and upgrade paths, in general.

!! Flameslinger

[[quoteright:208:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flameslingerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Let the flames begin!"''

Flameslinger is an extremely gifted elf, having a second sight that lets him see distant events via flames. He's also such an incredible archer that he wears a blindfold ''just'' to prove his skill. In addition to that, he saved a fire spirit in his youth, who granted him a magic bow and fire boots in gratitude.

* AnimalEyeSpy: Has a variation, seeing through fire rather than animals.
* ArcherArchetype
* ArrowsOnFire
* BlindfoldedVision: Fireslinger is a blindfolded ''archer''. He does it simply as a SelfImposedChallenge.
* FertileFeet: Inverted; he can have trails of flame trail behind him (but they're not permanent, keeping this out of WalkingWasteland).
* FireballEyeballs: He's said to have these under the blindfold.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* RainOfArrows
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: The Book Of Elements claims he lacks the ability to prevent his shoes from burning at every step, to the point that he's no longer allowed in most people's houses, since he regularly sets fire to any carpet he touches. [[StoryAndGameplaySegregation even though we never see this happen in-game, especially when he chooses to walk.]]
* SpreadShot[=/=]{{Multishot}}: One of his upgrade paths allows him to fire three arrows at once.
* TrickedOutShoes: They can leave a path of flames in his wake.
* TheUnreveal: In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kv4sueAp_s announcement trailer]] for ''Giants'', Flameslinger is seen among a handful of characters witnessing Tree Rex's re-appearance. He lifts his blindfold to get a closer look... only to reveal there's ''another'' blindfold underneath.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!! Ghost Roaster

[[quoteright:252:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghostroasterfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"No chain, no gain!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Ghost Roaster

Once a simple chef, Ghost Roaster was turned into a ghoul after falling into the Valley of the Undead. He then consumed an entire ghost village, for which he was chained to a spiked ball as punishment. Eon heard of this and recruited Ghost Roaster, feeling a ghost-eater could be useful - as long as he only eats ''evil'' spirits.

* AlienLunch: He's a foodie, just not of anything we'd call edible.
* BigEater: He ate ''an entire ghost town''. Nuff said.
* CaptainErsatz: Of the Crypt Keeper, from ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt''. This is much more apparent via voice work in ''Giants''.
* CursedWithAwesome: His punishment is what gave him his primary weapon in the first place.
* EpicFlail
* EvilLaugh
* HighCollarOfDoom
* MeaningfulRename: Ghost Roaster was once named Olav, but decided to give himself a new name after being transformed into what he is now.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: Essentially the "Mythic Ghouls" type.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Stormblade's Blue in the comic arc "Secret Agent Secrets".
* SkullForAHead
* TokenEvilTeammate: Ghost Roaster's bio suspiciously lacks any heroic deeds in his past. Eon just thought it'd be better to have a ghost-eater on ''his'' side.

!! Gill Grunt

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gillgruntfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> '''"Fear the fish!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Gill Grunt

Gill Grunt is a gillman soldier who met a beautiful mermaid during one tour of duty. He kept a promise to return to her after his tour, but she had been kidnapped by pirates in the meantime. He continues to search for her, and has become a Skylander to put a stop to such evil.

* AbnormalAmmo: His Water Weaver upgrade path lets him shoot ''exploding starfish'' at enemies.
* AnchorsAway / ChargedAttack: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, hold the attack button to ready a large ship anchor instead of the usual harpoons.
* ArtEvolution: In his offical artwork for series two on, his jaw seems to be less prominent, and his eyes appear rounder.
** ProngsOfPoseidon: His Wow Pow upgrade changes the anchor into a SpreadShot of tridents for a three-way attack.
* BottomlessMagazines: Initially averted with his water backpack, which has limited but regenerating water supply. Played straight once he gets the "Reserve Water Tank" upgrade in his Water Weaver path.
** Also applies when he stands in any amount of water large enough for him to get both feet in.
* DreadfulMusician: Gillmen are known for their singing voices, but not in a good way.
* FantasticRecruitmentDrive: Known for recruiting other undersea Skylanders, like Punk Shock or Echo.
* FishPeople
* HarpoonGun: His primary weapon. Can be upgraded with SpreadShot and ChargedAttack capabilities.
* JetPack: A water-pressure jetpack!
* {{Knockback}}: His power-hose attack inflicts relatively little damage, but is explicitly noted to push enemies backwards when it hits.
* TheLeader: For the Water element.
* ShockAndAwe: Deep Dive Gill Grunt's trident has this power when upgraded enough to the correct path.
* SpreadShot: One path of upgrades enables him to fire a triple spread of harpoons. His Wow Pow upgrade allows him to do this with his ChargedAttack.
* VisualPun: His series 4 version literally rides the wave.

!! Hex

[[quoteright:169:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hexfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fear the dark!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Hex

Hex was once a powerful elven sorceress who entered the underworld to confront Malefor, the Undead Dragon King. However, she returned... changed, becoming an Undead herself. Many are now suspicious of her dark powers, but Eon continues to have faith in her.

* ActionGirl
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Though unlike most example of the trope, she kept control.
* BadWithTheBone: Many, if not all of her spells are skull- or bone-shaped. Her toy even shows her holding a spectral skull.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Yes, the undead witch dressed in black with a blue skin, [[VoiceOfTheLegion guttural voice]] and skull-based magic is a good guy.
* LadyOfBlackMagic
* {{Necromancer}}
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: While most of the characters have a few, Hex gets the notable distinction of having defeated ''Malefor'' (though not actually ''kill'' him), which is no small feat.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* PerpetualFrowner
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Hex's crystal ball glows.
* VoiceOfTheLegion

!! Ignitor

[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ignitorfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Slash and burn!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Ignitor

On his first quest as a knight, Ignitor was deceived by a witch into wearing a cursed set of armor; he thought it was fire-resistant but dragonfire instead turned him into living flame within the armor. Predictably, he makes the best of this, but still seeks revenge on that witch for tricking him.

* AnimatedArmor[=/=]CursedWithAwesome: Granted, being a turned into a sentient flame is not pleasant, but he TookALevelInBadass thanks to it.
* FlamingSword
** AnAxeToGrind: His sword becomes this when upgraded.
* KnightInShiningArmor: More like a Flaming Knight in Shining Armor...
* MeaningfulRename: His name used to be Ignatius.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: ''"Thou has been vanquished!"''

!! Lightning Rod

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lightningrodfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"One strike and you're out!"''

Lightning Rod once lived in the Cloud Kingdom, beloved for his heroic deeds and good looks. But it wasn't enough for him. He eventually met Spyro, whose stories of his adventures in faraway lands inspired him to seek out Eon and join the Skylanders.

* BadassBeard
* BigEater: According to the Official 2013 ''Skylanders'' Annual, Lightning Rod consumes an amount of food considered overboard for a human diet. 400 eggs for breakfast, 25 whole livestock for lunch and several sheep for dinner, anyone?
* {{Expy}}: Bearded lightning-bolt-slinger? Talk about [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Zeus]].
* FlyingOnACloud
* FogFeet: As pointed out by Quigley in ''Spyro's Adventure''.
-> '''Quigley''': You have a cloudy butt! Hahahaha!
* {{Hunk}}: Particularly in-universe, where he's apparently nicknamed "Rod the Bod".
* NoIndoorVoice: He never drops below a drawn out, ''echoing'' shout.
* ShockAndAwe: Throws lightning bolts.
* WalkingShirtlessScene

!! Prism Break

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prismbreakfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"The beam is supreme!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Prism Break

Prism Break was once a fearsome, antisocial rock golem, until he was buried in a cave-in. Freed a hundred years later, Prism Break had not only had a change of heart but the earth's pressure had transformed parts of his rocky body into powerful crystals, which he decided to put to use in the defense of the Skylands.

* EmeraldPower: Literally; an upgrade that enhances his attack power also turns his crystals green.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Unlike Drobot's, however, they are at least ''instantaneous'' beams of light energy, though they do have a more limited range.
* GemstoneAssault
* GroinAttack: When he was freed from his imprisonment, one of the miners hit him with a pick-axe in "an area Prism Break doesn't like to talk about". Although it's not explicitly said, it's safe to assume he got hit... [[Series/CSIMiami *puts on shades*]] ...in the stones.
* HandBlast: If you can call those hands.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Best seen on his [[http://images.wikia.com/spyro/images/d/d6/PrismBreak_01.jpg portrait]].
* PowerCrystal
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Prism Break's hand crystals glow.
* SealedBadassInACan
* TookALevelInKindness: Before he became who he is today, Prism Break was an irritable rock golem. Then the cave-in happened, and he had a change of heart (and arms).

!! Slam Bam

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slambamfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Armed and dangerous!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Slam Bam, Elite Slam Bam

Slam Bam lived a simple life on a glacier, making ice sculptures and ice surfing. That is, until Kaos destroyed the glacier, leaving him to drift on an iceberg for days until he landed on Eon's Island.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti
* GogglesDoNothing: He's given a complementary pair with his Soul Gem upgrade.
* AnIcePerson
* MultiArmedAndDangerous
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Snow cones.

!! Sonic Boom

[[quoteright:217:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonicboomfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Full scream ahead!"''

A gryphon who hoped to protect her hatchlings, but a wizard was able to find her and curse her eggs; the chicks would hatch, but return to being eggs within moments and hatch again in an endless cycle. Making the best of a bad situation, she taught her chicks how to fight when hatched, and joined the Skylanders to protect others from suffering this kind of evil.

* ActionGirl
* ActionMom: She's even able to get an assist from her chicks.
* AreaOfEffect: Her Sonic blasts are this.
* CursedWithAwesome: She trained her cursed hatchlings to assist her in battle anytime she needs them with effectively no risk to them. Sure, probably not pleasant for her, but certainly helpful.
* FusionDance: Sonic Boom's Wow Pow ability allows her to combine her hatchlings into one "Super Baby" with a much stronger bite.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Her primary attack is a blast of sonic energy.
* OneHitPointWonder: Sonic Boom's hatchlings vanish in a puff of baby feathers the moment they take any damage, and the player must toss them again.
* OurGryphonsAreDifferent: Sonic Boom resembles an ''opinicus'', with her eagle's head and wings, but lion's tail, and four clawed legs. This also applies to her (normal) hatchlings; the Super Baby looks distinctly more dinosaur-like, with scrawny front arms and wings but a large head, back legs and long tail.
* SplashDamage: Her "Echolocation" upgrade causes her sonic blasts to send out secondary shockwaves upon impact, which inflict additional damage.
* SpreadShot: Her sonic breath already has a wide area of effect, but the "Medea Griffin" path of upgrades enables Sonic Boom to toss ''all'' of her eggs simultaneously, in a spread pattern.
* WeaponizedOffspring

!! Spyro

[[quoteright:284:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spyrofigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"All fired up!"''

-> Notable variants: Dark Spyro, Legendary Spyro, Elite Spyro

A legendary purple dragon from a faraway land, Spyro is famous for his many adventures - [[Franchise/SpyroTheDragon perhaps you've heard]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro of some of them]]. Having been invited to join the Skylanders, Spyro now protects the Skylands just as fiercely as he has fought evil elsewhere.

* BreathWeapon: Standard-issue dragon fire, but it's at least upgradable.
* ChargedAttack: The "Daybringer Flame" upgrade allows the player to charge up a large fireball by holding down the Attack button.
* CompositeCharacter: His bio gives him the personality of classic Spyro but also calls him a legendary Purple Dragon like the ''Legend of Spyro'' character. Cynder's backstory even implies he's fought this world's Malefor and has a history with Cynder. His tongue is also a forked tongue like he had in the classic games and he's offhandedly referred to as an old friend of Crash Bandicoot's.
** WordOfGod confirms that Spyro's origins in ''Skylanders'' and his traits from previous Spyro games is intentionally left ambiguous, leaving it to longtime Spyro the Dragon fans to use their own imaginations to fill in the blanks.
* DarkIsNotEvil: "Dark Spyro" has been noted as using evil energy without being corrupted by it.
* DeathFromAbove: Spyro's strongest move is his headbash, purchasable after finding his Soul Gem.
* {{Flight}}: You know the one...
* GlassCannon: Dark Spyro in comparison to the normal version; with higher attack but lower defense.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Magic element.
* TheLeader: For the Magic element, and for all modern-day Skylanders.
* MythologyGag: On top of being a CompositeCharacter, his Series 2 Wow Pow even looks like the convexity attack used to finish off Cynder in ''A New Beginning''. [[SupernaturalIsPurple Especially when used by Dark Spyro.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Even his dash attack has hints of flame to it, although it's not actually a fire attack.
* PurpleIsTheNewBlack: Dark Spyro's magical attacks are purple, while Dark Spyro's black.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Mentioned in a nod to his ''Legend'' counterpart, but hasn't been demonstrated.
* PutOnABus: After appearing in the first three ''Skylanders'' games, Spyro does not get a repose for ''Trap Team''.
** TheBusCameBack: He returns to the spotlight in ''Imaginators'' as a storyline [=NPC=].
* SpreadShot: Spyro's fire breath can be upgraded to a spread of three fireballs.
* UseYourHead: His dash attack, as well as his dive-bombing headbash attack.

!! Stealth Elf

[[quoteright:226:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stealthelffigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Silent, but deadly!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Stealth Elf, Dark Ninja Stealth Elf, Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf

Awaking in the forest with no memory of who she was, she was adopted by a ninja-like creature and raised in the art of stealth. She now searches to find where she came from.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Her top exposes her cleavage. [[http://s1228.photobucket.com/user/JCKane/media/Skylanders%20Cuts/life-legendary-stealthelf-mainFullCut_zpsac98f7cf.png.html Best seen on her series 2 promo images.]]
* ActionGirl
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit is divided into two parts, unlike most fictional ninja garb.
** Averted in ''SWAP Force'', as she wears a more traditional ninja costume for her Series 3 and Dark variants.
* BreakoutCharacter: Just look at the size of her bio compared to any other character on this page.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Some of what she says and does in the games and commercials tend to give her {{Adorkable}} behavior traits. The books and comics, meanwhile, tends to make her out more as being [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] with NoSocialSkills - Except for the book of Elements, which shows her more as BrilliantButLazy (uses her duplicates to get out of doing anything she doesn't want to do herself).
* DualWielding: A pair of daggers.
* FlechetteStorm: In the 3DS games, where she no longer has Arboreal Acrobatics as an ability [thanks to them being platformer games where everyone can double jump], and her Stealthier Decoy ability being changed into a dash attack version called Stealthy Decoy, Stealth Elf now has Thorn Throw attacks, which is a {{downplayed|Trope}} version of this trope. Gets completely straight with her final 3DS upgrade called Thorn Storm, which still only doubles as DeathOfAThousandCuts in ''Spyro's Adventure'', but becomes much more effective in later games, where it's just great for clearing huge crowds of enemies from a distance.
* FragileSpeedster: In the 3DS version, at least. She can't take a hit but she's your best bet for any speed challenge and the only one of the starters who stands a chance in the second half of Dark Mirror.
** SuperSpeed: the "Speed" stat icon is literally an image of her running.
* GratuitousNinja
** HighlyVisibleNinja
* MundaneUtility: Likes using her decoy to do things she doesn't want to do herself, from listening to boring meetings and conversations, to doing typical household chores.
** NinjaLog: Her special attack is to vanish and leave a decoy in her place. After upgrading, they're dummies that fight back.
* NoSocialSkills: Known for being impatient, temperamental, [[BrutalHonesty and a bit too direct.]] Her mini-counterpart, Whisper Elf, is likewise able to make situations completely awkward by [[InnocentlyInsensitive speaking her mind too much]] ([[TheQuietOne when she even speaks at all)]].
* KnifeNut
* TheLeader: For the Life element.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* ReverseGrip
* SkirtOverSlacks: DependingOnTheArtist, the wrap around her waist is either a sash or a full skirt, the latter of which makes it this trope.
* SomethingWeForgot: At the end of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljI5xI0-_6g Giants Easter Surprise commercial]], thanks to her hiding skills during the Easter egg hunt [[GoneHorriblyRight being a bit too good....]]
-> '''Stealth Elf [[TheStinger (late in the middle of the night)]]''': Yeah...I told I was good at this. ({{Beat}}) Guys...? GUYS!
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

-> For her mini counterpart, Whisper Elf
* FunSize: To Stealth Elf.
* NinjaLog: Can leave scarecrow - like decoys in her place, though hers appears to be made of yarn, as opposite to Stealth Elf's straw decoys.
* TheNoseless: Yet she has nostrils.
* No Social Skills: Known for speaking her mind too much. [[TheQuietOne When she talks, at all]].
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Only mini from Trap Team to return in Superchargers - [[DemotedToExtra as a healing unit for Super Shot Stealth Elf's life gem skill, Health Elf....]]

-> Stealth elf's [=SuperChargers=] form, Super Shot Stealth Elf, and her vehicle, the Stealth Stinger
* AbnormalAmmo: Her Gatling gun uses daggers as ammunition. This is lampshaded in her primary attack's description:
-> Press <primary attack button> and hold to lock onto enemies and shoot daggers at them. Yes, it's a gun that shoots daggers.
* AbsoluteCleavage: Not in the console games, but the ''[=SuperChargers=] Racing'' supplimental game, where her jump suit is zipped down to expose her cleavage. [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/df6dHsnEa2Y/maxresdefault.jpg Also shows up in some images.]]
* AcePilot: She flies a helicopter.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Her Arborial Acrobatics ability has been replaced with the ability to spin around her Gatling gun.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Her jumpsuit looks to match her body pretty snuggly.
* FragileSpeedster: The Stealth Stinger isn't very strong and power with its shots, but can rapid fire on enemies and has a high acceleration rate.
* GatlingGood
* MoreDakka: Both her and the Stealth Stinger can rapidfire attacks at enemies.
* StealthExpert: Except now she leave her Gatling gun behind, while doing so. The Stealth Stinger is also the only vehicle capable of doing this.
* TheMedic: Her Soul Gem has her summon Whisper Elf, now as Health Elf, for the purpose of healing after damage is taken.
* {{Thememobile}}: The Stealth Stinger is one to both her and plants.
* TheTurretMaster: When hidden, she now leaves her Gatling gun behind to act as both this and a distraction. It can even be equipped to home in on and fire at enemies automatically.

!! Stump Smash

[[quoteright:192:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stumpsmashfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"[[DropTheHammer Drop the hammer!]]"''

* [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe Half the Tree He Used To Be]]
* PlantPerson
* WhenTreesAttack
* SimpletonVoice

!! Sunburn

[[quoteright:286:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sunburnfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Roast and toast!"''

Sunburn is the Skylands' only known dragon/phoenix hybrid, granting him rare magical powers like the ability to teleport. While he is very proud of what he is, this also makes Sunburn a target for those who want to capture and study him for their own ends. Being a Skylander provides him not only with the chance to use his powers for good, but more importantly with protection from anyone who would hunt him.

* BreathWeapon
* CollisionDamage: Sunburn's Phoenix Dash; the "Phoenix Grand Blaze" upgrade makes Sunburn's body ignite in flames after using his firebreath long enough, allowing him to damage nearby enemies by touch.
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Phoenix
* HybridPower
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Fire element.
* ThePhoenix
* TeleportersAndTransporters: His teleport move also inflicts CollisionDamage.

!! Terrafin

[[quoteright:267:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/terrafinfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"It's feedin' time!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Terrafin

A land shark from the dirt seas, Terrafin was the local lifeguard until the heat from a massive explosion fused the sand into glass. He turned to boxing, becoming a champion until he by chance met a Portal Master and decided to fight as a Skylander.

* ChainsawGood: As an upgrade, he gets a chainsaw ''fin''.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks
* FastTunnelling
* GoodOldFisticuffs: He later gets upgraded with brass- and spiked- knuckle gloves.
** PowerFist: His spiked knuckles.
* TheLeader: For the Earth element.
* SandWorm
* ScaryBlackMan: This is what his voice sounds like.
* ShamuFu: His body slam probably qualifies.
* ShockwaveStomp: His body slam attack creates a very painful one.
* SharkMan

!! Trigger Happy

[[quoteright:179:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triggerhappyfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"No gold, no glory!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Trigger Happy, Springtime Trigger Happy, Elite Trigger Happy, Power Blue Double Dare Trigger Happy

Nobody knows where this gremlin came from but... he likes guns. And shooting stuff. And shooting more stuff. And ... well, you get the idea.

* ATeamFiring: As stated, he's a bit infamous for his lack of aiming....
* BlingBlingBang: Trigger Happy uses "gold guns" that [[AbnormalAmmo fire gold coins.]]
** His other attack is throwing an exploding gold safe. That can be upgraded to a more damaging exploding gold pot of gold coins, and that can be upgraded to an even more damaging single (but ginormous) exploding gold coin. And that single coin is yet even more damaging if it comes up heads.
* GatlingGood: His normal tertiary ability is a mounted Gatling gun.
* GlassCannon: Offensively is one of the most powerful Skylanders, but also has some of the lowest maximum health.
* TheGunslinger: Not only does he use guns, his backstory is pretty much what you'd expect from a western gunslinger.
* GunsAkimbo
* HumanCannonball: Double Dare Trigger Happy's tertiary attack is launching himself out of a cannon.
* LaughingMad: He never seems to stop laughing and giggling.
* LawOfInverseRecoil: His Golden Yamato Blast attack shoves him halfway across the screen.
* TheLeader: For the Tech element.
* MoreDakka: Dude's called "Trigger Happy"; what do you think?
* OverlyLongTongue: One trailer even shows it to be prehensile.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: While not of a traditional design, his gold guns have visible rotary chambers.
* RidingTheBomb: Big Bang Trigger Happy
* TriggerHappy: Um... yeah.
* WaveMotionGun: His strongest ChargedAttack, the "Golden Yamato Blast", packs so much punch that not only can it clear an entire screen of Mooks with one shot, but the recoil from firing it forces ''him'' backwards quite a distance too.

!! Voodood

[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/voodoodfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Axe first, questions later!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Voodood

During his rite of passage in the Cave of Trials, Voodood discovered a dragon skeleton with the legendary Axe Reaver where its heart would be. Taking the dragon's skull and the axe as his own, Voodood became a decorated warrior and protector of his people, joining the Skylanders after becoming the last of his tribe.

[[quoteright:278:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/warnadofigurine11037.jpg]]

* PlayerGuidedMissile: His "Guided Twister" upgrade is fully steerable.
* PowerGlows: Lightcore Warnado's shell lights up.
* SpinAttack: Warnado's primary attack.
* TurtlePower

!! Wham-Shell

[[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whamshellfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Brace for the mace!"''

King of a peaceful underwater civilization, Wham-Shell repelled an invasion of trolls drilling for oil, though the invasion did scatter his people far and wide. He's since joined the Skylanders to defend against these sorts of atrocities.

* AncestralWeapon: Wham-Shell's mace has been passed down from one king to the next for generations.
* GiantEnemyCrab: He's vaguely crustacean-like, anyway.
* PowerGlows: As a Lightcore, his mace lights up.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething

!! Whirlwind

[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whirlwindfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Twists of fury!"''

-> Notable variants: Polar Whirlwind, Elite Whirlwind

Whirlwind is half-dragon, half-unicorn; unfortunately both races' jealousy makes her an outsider (the dragons covet her beauty, the unicorns envy her ability to fly). Nonetheless, when trolls hunted both species, she jumped to their defense. The result... well, let's just say that evil beings are now ''terrified'' of rainbows.

* ActionGirl
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Got this treatment from both of her species.
* BadassAdorable: She's part unicorn, she shoots rainbows, she has feathery wings... even her giggles are adorable!
* TheDreaded: The trolls invoked Whirlwind's wrath by hunting both of the races she's descended from. The resulting RoaringRampageOfRescue was so great that she's now feared quite greatly by the forces of evil. Yes, [[KillerRabbit the dragon/unicorn hybrid who shoots rainbows]] (of [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM]]) from her horn is TheDreaded!
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: Heck, even a ''black hole'' (the "Rainbow Singularity" upgrade) is better with rainbows! Her enemies call it the "Rainbow Of Doom"[[note]](yes, that is the official name)[[/note]] for a reason.
* KillerRabbit: Is ''far'' more deadly than you'd expect from something that's half-unicorn and shoots rainbows.
* HalfBreedDiscrimination: Wasn't accepted by either species due to her hybrid nature. This did not stop her from going on a RoaringRampageOfRescue against the trolls for hunting them though.
* HealingShiv: After acquiring her Soul Gem upgrade, Whirlwind's Rainbow of Doom doubles as a Rainbow of Healing in two-player co-op.
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Unicorn
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Air element.
* TheLeader: For the Air element.
* MoodSwinger: She has the grace of a unicorn, and the fury of a dragon; but she's been trying to curb her temper since becoming a Skylander.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Her unseen adventure in the Frostfest Mountain, which led to the Frost Elves erecting an immense golden statue of her that doubles as a handy storage platform for [[MacGuffin The Illuminator]].
* RoaringRampageOfRescue: When the trolls started hunting the two races she's a hybrid of, she went on one of these that made her TheDreaded to evildoers.
* ShockAndAwe: Whirlwind's secondary attack is a "tempest cloud" that electrocutes nearby enemies.
* WingedUnicorn: Whirlwind is a half dragon, half unicorn, but for some reason has ''feathered'' wings instead of dragon ones, giving her the look of one of these.

!! Wrecking Ball

[[quoteright:213:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wreckingballfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Wreck n' roll!"''

Wrecking Ball started out as a grub worm, to be used as an ingredient in a wizard's magic potion. Surprisingly, he swallowed the entire potion, swelling to enormous size. Then he swallowed the wizard.

* BadassAdorable: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVBVgvo2kJs Just look at him.]]
* BigEater
* {{Gasshole}}

[[quoteright:275:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zapfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Ride the lightning!"''

Zap was born a prince of water dragons, but was swept away by a riptide and adopted by electric eels. There, he not only built a harness to store and discharge electricity, but he also became an excellent speed swimmer, with only the dolphins able to be a match for him.

* BreathWeapon: He spits balls of electricity as his primary attack.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Water element.
* RaisedByWolves - err, electric eels instead of his own dragonkind.
* ShockAndAwe: Though he learned the how-tos from being raised by electric eels, he has to use a special harness to provide the electricity for it.
* VerbalTic: As of ''Giants'', his voice constantly sounds like someone gargling and talking at the same time.

!! Zook

[[quoteright:279:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zookfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Locked and loaded!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Zook

Zook is one of a race known as Bambazookers, who spent their entire lives standing in one place - until Zook realized that he could move away from his spot. He became a famous hero, and hopes that he'll gain even more fame as a member of the Skylanders.

* BambooTechnology: ''Literally'', as he has a bamboo carved ''bazooka''.
* {{BFG}}
* GlorySeeker
* PlantPerson
* SwissArmyWeapon: Of the more mundane variant. Zook's bazooka is also used sometimes as a telescope, a didgeridoo, and as a lunchbox. He sometimes also uses it a a place to sit.
* WelcomeToTheCaribbeanMon: As of ''Giants'', he has a thick Jamaican accent.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Regular Skylanders debuting in ''Giants'']]

!! Chill

[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chillfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Stay cool!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Chill, Legendary Chill

Chill was a decorated knight of the ice kingdom and the Snow Queen's captain of the guard. But then the armies of cyclops invaded and captured the queen, which Chill has never forgiven herself for. Chill has exiled herself from the kingdom until she can regain her honor, and is always keeping an eye out for news of her queen.

* ActionGirl
* AmbiguouslyHuman
* CombatPragmatist: She's a noble knight, but at least one source has said she's not above fighting dirty.
* CoolSword (no pun intended)
* DoubleWeapon
* AnIcePerson: Like Slam Bam, she's more affiliated to Ice than to Water.
* KnightInShiningArmor
* MyGreatestFailure: She couldn't prevent her queen from being kidnapped.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Chill
* RedemptionQuest
* ShamuFu: Her Soul Gem power lets her summon a narwhal to attack.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Though it's a DoubleWeapon and she throws it spinning horizontally, so it's not ''blatantly'' implausible.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Chill's accent in ''Giants'' has a peculiar mixture of German, Russian and Scandinavian.
* WinterRoyalLady: Not Chill herself, but the Snow Queen she serves. That said, drop the "royalty" part and Chill fits quite well.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Going by her eyebrows, anyway, as her actual hair is hidden under her helmet.

!! Flashwing

[[quoteright:272:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flashwingfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Blinded by the light!"''

-> Notable variants: Jade Flashwing, [=LightCore=] Flashwing

Nobody's sure where this gem dragon came from. She was first found when Bash wished on a shooting star (to fly, of course) and witnessed it crash into a valley, and when he went to investigate he saw her emerge from a giant geode. Unfortunately, she didn't know that Bash was friendly and she, well, sent him flying.

* ActionGirl
* AttackDrone / SentryGun: Somewhere between the two is Flashwing's "Super Shards" path of upgrades: Fire her crystal shards into a wall and they will stick there, shooting their own crystal shards in sync with Flashwing's own. Flashwing can have up to three such shards at once, potentially quadrupling her firepower in the meantime.
* TheBait: In the ''Lost Islands'' mobile game, Flashwing wants to go on a mission to the Pirate Grotto. Why? Because she's made out of gems and the pirates will mistake her for treasure.
* BewareMyStingerTail: She can fire energy beams from the gem on her tail. Her Soul Gem ability, "Crystal Lighthouse", is implied to utilize the gem on her tail as well.
* CameFromTheSky: Arrived in Skylands inside a shooting star that broke open to reveal her when Bash investigated it.
* EmeraldPower: Jade Flashwing
* FeatherFlechettes: One of her attacks is to launch a salvo of crystalline feathers from her wings, in all directions (save forward, which is what her primary attack is for).
* FrickinLaserBeams: Her primary ChargedAttack is a laser blast. Her Soul Gem ability is a large crystal that rotates laser beams around in a circle.
* GemstoneAssault: Her primary attack is to fire crystal shards. And although you don't encounter them often, Flashwing is also the only Skylander who can destroy crystal blocks without needing to use explosives.
* HealThyself: The "Healing Crystals" upgrade, along Flashwing's Super Shards path, allows Flashwing to recover her HP by standing near the crystal shards she's fired into walls.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Earth element. She's also the only dragon Skylander debuting in Giants.
* PowerCrystal
* SpinAttack: Her Shimmering Spin attack. It can also be upgraded into a DeflectorSpin.

!! Fright Rider

[[quoteright:187:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frightriderfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fear the spear!"''

Fright Rider and his steed, Fright the ostrich, were once champion jousters. But one day a jealous competitor cursed the elf and sent him to the Underworld. Although Fright was normally rather timid, it ate a bag of "skele-oats" and turned itself into a skeleton in order to rescue its friend.

* BeastOfBattle / HorseOfADifferentColor: Fright Rider fights from atop his trusty steed - Fright the (now-undead) ostrich.
* CowardlyLion: Fright
* DemBones: Fright
* PropheticNames: Fright used to feel fright over almost everything and is now a skeleton, which are associated with fright. Rider is, well, [[CaptainObvious a rider]].
* RescuedFromTheUnderworld: Fright reportedly ate a bag of "skele-oats" so it could travel to the Underworld and rescue him.
* ShoutOut: To ''VideoGame/{{Joust}}'', most likely.

!! Hot Dog

[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hotdogfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"See Spot burn!"''

-> Notable variants: Molten Hot Dog

Hot Dog was a stray fire pup that befriended a squad of Skylanders while on a mission, who were so impressed with how he helped out that they made him part of the team.

* BeeBeeGun: One of his alternate powers turns him into a [[TheSimpsons dog with bees in his mouth so when he barks he shoots bees at you.]]
* DevelopersForesight: In Giants, one of the hats is a bone hat that usually goes through a Skylander's head or hair. But when Hot Dog wears it, he holds it in his mouth.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: His Soul Gem power is "Ding Dong Ditch", complete with illustration of a paper bag on fire. (If you're unaware of the classic prank by that name, it involves ringing someone's doorbell and running away, leaving behind a flaming bag of dog poop on their doorstep.)
* HeroesLoveDogs
* HeroicDog
* MagmaMan: Or would that be magma mutt?
* TeamPet

!! Jet-Vac

[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jetvacfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Hawk and awe!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Jet-Vac, Legendary Jet-Vac, Legendary Hurricane Jet-Vac

Jet-Vac was a daring flying ace from the land of Windham. Like all Sky Barons, he received a set of magical wings when he was young, but when Windham was attacked he gave them up to a young mother so she and her children could escape. Eon was moved by this story enough to seek Jet-Vac out and give him a vacuum device to replace his lost wings.

* AcePilot: Well, he flies himself instead of needing a plane, but close enough.
* BirdPeople
* BlowYouAway: His vaccuum cannon also fires bullets of compressed air.
* ButtMonkey: Courtesy of Eruptor, he spends the whole [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEwyp4XGBP4 "Just Like Swap-Force" trailer]] in pain.
* ChargedAttack: One of Jet-Vac's upgrades enables him to fire a super shot every time he defeats an enemy by vaccuuming it up.
* DoABarrelRoll / EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: If you take Jet-Vac down the Vac-Packeteer upgrade path, one of the attacks you can purchase is the "Flying Corkscrew", which allows him to ''literally'' barrel roll while hovering in the air.
* JetPack: Allows Jet-Vac to move quickly, but takes time to recharge. It can be recharged more quickly by using his vaccuum cannon.
* MisterSeahorse: Although he's a male, Jet-Vac has laid an egg in every promotional trailer he appears in.
** BringMyBrownPants: Although it may not be an egg, but he probably poops himself.
* OneHitPolykill: His "Piercing Winds" upgrade allows his shots to hit multiple enemies.
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Jet-Vac's vaccuum cannon glows, as does a central jewel on his armor.
* WeaponsThatSuck: His primary weapon is a vaccuum cannon.

!! Pop Fizz

[[quoteright:206:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/popfizzfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"The motion of the potion!"''

-> Notable variants: Punch Pop Fizz, [=LightCore=] Pop Fizz, Love Potion Pop Fizz, Birthday Bash Big Bubble Pop Fizz

Nobody knows Pop Fizz's history. Due to his extensive messing about with magic potions, we don't even know what he originally looked like. Due to his craziness, nobody wants to risk working with him. He tried to overcome this by making a charm potion, but it instead turns him into a (more) crazed berserker - or maybe that's what he was going for in the first place?

* AlchemyIsMagic
* BoozeBasedBuff: A G-Rated example, it's soda he's drinking.
* CaptainObvious: Noted when he levels up.
-> ''"Oh... I was very big there for a second!"''
* EdibleAmmunition: His potions can either be thrown or drank for various effects.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Could be argued that some of his lines in the game can be interpreted as alcoholic references.
* HulkingOut: He becomes an even more hyperactive beast when he drinks his potions. His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him become even bigger.
* JekyllAndHyde: {{Downplayed|Trope}}; Pop Fizz's personality doesn't change in his transformation, but he does seem to be more excited.
* MadScientist
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: Claimed to be 'Success', stated when completing a lock puzzle.
* NoMoreForMe: Played with in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUMFF7ekbvw E3 trailer]], where Pop Fizz (and other Skylanders) are talking about how they don't believe the Giants are actually real, only to be thoroughly surprised when the giant Tree Rex shows up behind them.
-> '''Pop Fizz:''' "...I'm quittin' the soda!"
* PunnyName: Pop for "soda pop" and Fizz for fizzy soda drinks, combined to make a play on "pop quiz".
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Pop Fizz's potion glows.
* SuperMode: His Beast Form.
* StanceSystem: Normal Pop Fizz can switch between throwing potions that explode, spawn a minion, or leave a puddle of acid. Big Bubble Pop Fizz can switch between using his Potion Creation Station to fire bubbles, a short-range white potion, or another puddle of acid.
* SweetTooth: Pop Fizz really loves soda.

[[folder:The Giants]]
The very first Skylanders, who brought down the Arkeyan Empire 10,000 years ago. As a consequence of their victory, however, the Arkeyans' Fist of Arkus malfunctioned and exiled them to Earth; much like Kaos would banish the modern Skylanders thousands of years later.

!!Tropes applying to all Giants:
%%* MightyGlacier: Compared to the normal-sized Skylanders.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: Obviously. They're about two-and-a-half to three times as large as your average Skylander.
* PowerGlows: All of the Giants' toys light up when placed on the portal, though their special powers are not related to the glowing.
* SuperStrength: Except for Ninjini (who uses MindOverMatter instead); these massive beings can throw boulders, smash holes trough weakened parts of the ground, break walls that normally require the bomb powerup, just walk through breakables and small enemies, and various other "Feats of Strength" like moving entire floating islands, hurling stacks of logs, and pushing massive columns over.

!! Bouncer

[[quoteright:332:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bouncerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Deal with the wheel!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Bouncer

Formerly a popular Roboto Ball player, Bouncer retired from the sport after too many hits to the head and was hired as mining security. He discovered there a number of his old fans, enslaved by the Arkeyans. For the sake of his fans, Bouncer made his goal to take down the Arkeyan King.
* EyeBeams: But he can't keep them sustained for long, as he overheats. Upgrades increase the time one can spend shooting eye-lasers.
* DeathFromAbove: He can fire rockets into the air that land on targeted areas.
* FingerFirearms, fired in the form of his rapid-fire {{Finger Gun}}s. Upgrades make them more awesome.
* LovableJock

-> ''"It's crush hour!"''

-> Notable variants: Granite Crusher

Crusher ''loves'' crushing rocks. Loves it. He's studied minerals all his life, and is always searching for some new kind of stone to smash. So when he heard the Arkeyans were taking rocks to melt down into war machines, he took it rather personally.
* DetachmentCombat: His Rock Slide ability causes him to break apart into damaging rocks, which then pull back and reform.
* DishingOutDirt
* DropTheHammer
* FelonyMisdemeanor: His reason for becoming the first earth skylander is because he learned that the Arkeyans were melting rocks into weapons. [[SeriousBusiness Crushing them is HIS job!]]

* {{Golem}}
* NamedWeapons: The hammer is also named Crusher.
* TakenForGranite: Has an EyeBeam that does this to foes in front of him.

!! Eye-Brawl

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eyebrawlfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"I've got my eye on you!"''

It all started with a staring contest between a headless giant and a floating eyeball. Since the giant had no eyes and the eyeball couldn't blink, their rivalry soon escalated into all-out war. Eventually, though, they realized that their fighting was getting them nowhere, and that they would be much more powerful if they worked together.

* DetachmentCombat: Since Eye-Brawl is technically two creatures, they can split up. The eye, which is the part the player controls, flies around and shoots EyeBeams, while the body remains prone. With upgrades, the firing speed of the eye-lasers can be improved, and the body can be made to slowly follow the eye, flailing its fists.
* EyeBeams: When separated, the eye portion can fire these. Upgrades make him fire them faster and harder.
* FacelessEye
* FridgeLogic: In-Universe - War escalated because the two parts of his body couldn't logically beat the other in a staring contest - One's a headless giant, the other's an eyelid-less floating eyeball.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: When he's not using eye-lasers or summoning minions, all of Eye-Brawl's attacks are delivered through his fists. His melee upgrades simply add knuckle-dusters to his fists: the first level being simple knuckle-dusters as above, the second adding rather imposing-looking blades.
* PungeonMaster: Eye-Brawl loves him some optical puns.
* SeriousBusiness: An all out war broke out because a headless giant and a floating eyeball couldn't beat each other at a staring contest.
* TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether: The flying eyeball is Dive-Clops's twin brother.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Seems to be trying for a [[{{Uberwald}} Transylvanian/Eastern European]] accent, but can come across as German or even Hispanic at times.

!! Hot Head

[[quoteright:338:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hotheadfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Hey! I'm on FIRE!"''

Finding magical oil was a great discovery in the Skylands - until a certain ''someone'' decided to cool off by diving into the black pool. This caused the island to explode and oil wouldn't be rediscovered for another 2,000 years. But for his reckless action, Hot Head was infused with the oil's power, granting him limitless fuel for his fires.
* CoolBike: His Soul Gem power allows him to turn into one!
* FireBreathingWeapon
** VideoGameFlamethrowersSuck: Perhaps they do, but not Hot-head's! This trope is very much averted: his Flamefire burst can be upgraded to fire a constant damaging stream.

Ninjini was a renowned magical ninja, even more ancient than the Arkeyans. That is, until a jealous sorceress sealed her in a magic bottle, intending her to be trapped for eternity.

* DualWielding: Two swords longer then most Skylanders are tall.
* FogFeet
* GenieInABottle: A bottle that she still carries to this day, and can use to attack her enemies with.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: DualWielding Japanese swords and wearing Japanese armor.
* MindOverMatter: Unlike the other Giants, Ninjini doesn't use her PHYSICAL strength during the Feats of Strength, but rather employs ancient Djinni magic to get things done. Possibly intentional: she IS a ninja, after all, more known for graceful and lethal sword-arts rather then sheer brute force.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: We're talking about a ''ninja genie'', here.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Her CatchPhrase.
* SealedBadassInACan: Formerly. The sealing actually made her ''more'' badass as she spent that time training until she was able to break free from her prison.

!! Swarm

[[quoteright:244:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/swarmfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Bring the sting!"''

Born a prince of insect warriors, Swarm (like the other 9,000 members of the royal family) was never allowed to leave the hive.

-> ''"Hail to the whale!"''

Thumpback was once a member of the dreaded pirate crew of the Phantom Tide. But he was never really interested in piracy - he instead liked being on a ship for the fishing.

* AnchorsAway
* CallItKarma: A good variant. He only joined the Phantom Tide [[PiratesWhoDontDoAnything so he could use their pirate ship to go fishing.]] He winds up getting dragging off the ship and pulled miles away to become the first water skylander, while the rest of the crew [[SealedEvilInACan became trapped inside the Chest of Exile.]]

* TheLeader: For the Giants.

-> ''"Straight to the point!"''

Pop Thorn hails from a race of creatures known as Pufferthorns. Often considered one of the cutest creatures in all of Skylands, they are generally quite timid and puff out sharp spines when scared. It is this ability that long ago led to the unfortunate legacy of being used as combs by giant trolls everywhere, being the sharp spines are perfect for brushing out tangles from their long, matted hair. But not long ago, one Pufferthorn took a stand. Tired of his race being used for nothing more than good grooming, Pop Thorn used his naturally thorny abilities to stand up and fight back against the giant trolls.

Inside, he found a formidable suit of powerful armor and a curious crystalline blade; he decided to make them his own. Unfortunately, this activated the automated defenses, and he found himself facing a legion of ancient Arkeyan war machines between him and freedom. He plunged into battle, and soon the Arkeyans were silent once more. Realizing the potential his new gear possessed, Krypt King sought out the Skylanders, and was soon made a member of the Trap Masters. Now he uses his mighty Traptanium blade to strike down evil throughout Skylands.

%%* MightyGlacier
* XtremelyKoolLetterz: '''K'''rypt King. Likely for the AddedAlliterativeAppeal.

One day, a Leviathan threatened to consume his restaurant and take the Fish King hostage, who happened to be dining there. Having no choice, Lob-Star dove into battle, using every trick he'd ever been taught, he drove the Leviathan from the city and saved the day. For his sacrifice in protecting the innocent, Master Eon made him a Skylander.

* ChefOfIron

-> ''"Cut to the chase!"''

An undead tailor renowned for his skills. He caught Master Eon's attention when a gang of pirates tried to force him into making a magical fortune-telling hat.

* MarionetteMaster: Can summon phantom puppets to fight for him.

!! Wallop
-> ''"Hammer it home!"''

Wallop was once a promising young apprentice blacksmith among his people, who had used the volcanic lava of Mount Scorch to forge the finest weapons in all of Skylands for generations. However, on the day he was to be taken under the wing of a master smith, a Fire Viper awoke within the mountain and attacked his village. With his twin forging hammers and skills honed pounding metal into shape, Wallop felled the savage beast and drew the attention of the Skylanders.

!! Wildfire
-> ''"Bringing the heat!"''

-> Notable variants: Dark Wildfire

Wildfire was once a young lion of the Fire Claw Clan, about to enter into the Rite of Infernos Ė a test of survival in the treacherous fire plains. However, because he was made of gold, he was treated as an outcast and not allowed to participate. But this didn't stop him. That night, Wildfire secretly followed the path of the other lions, carrying only his fatherís enchanted shield. Soon he found them cornered by a giant flame scorpion. Using the shield, he protected the group from the beastís enormous stinging tail, giving them time to safely escape. And though Wildfire was injured in the fight, his fatherís shield magically changed him Ė magnifying the strength that was already in his heart – making him the mightiest of his clan. Now part of the Trap Team, Wildfire uses his enormous Traptanium-bonded shield to defend any and all who need it.

* YouWillNotEvadeMe: His Chains of Fire ability.

* BadassBeard: His is actually made of chainsaw chains.
* ChainsawGood: Being of the Swashbuckler class, he has [[DualWielding two]].
* [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Skyland's Dwarves Are Different]]: His profile describes him as a Dwarf, which is odd since he towers over most other Skylanders and appears to be, if not a full machine, then a very advanced cyborg.
* TrapMaster: Can expend energy that he's collected from fallen foes to summon "Inventions", which are basically a whirling chainsaw deathtrap. With upgrades, they gain the ability to shoot electricity.

''See: The Doom Raiders (Trap Team)''

!! Chopscotch

* DetachmentCombat: Can remove her head and grow a new one, at which point the first head will attack on its own.
* EyeScream: Her eyes are removable, as shown in her idle animation.
* PunnyName: On "chop" and "hopscotch". The latter part ties into her using it as a method of attack and her element being Undead, in that in some countries it's about a journey through the afterlife.

* RhymesOnADime
* SkullForAHead: Being of the Undead element, her head is a skull covered in tribal carvings.

* FriendlyEnemy: Seems to view Cortex this way at the end of the Thumoin' Wumpa Island level. The feelings probably not mutual.
* GuestFighter: From another Activision-owned series. Unlike Donkey Kong and Bowser, his figure is compatible with all versions of ''Imaginators'', and he plays a major role in the storyline of ''Imaginators'' whereas the former two were just special guests.
* HappyDance: As an IdleAnimation, Crash will do his trademark dance.
* KillerYoYo: In his Sky-Chi attack, he uses it to pull enemies toward him.
* MadBomber: He can throw TNT crates, and combine them with his spin attack to create a whirlwind of explosives.
* MythologyGag: Similar to [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot1996 the first]] [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot2CortexStrikesBack three]] [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped games]], ''[[VideoGame/CrashBandicootTheWrathOfCortex The Wrath of Cortex]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity Twinsanity]]'', he has unique death animations depending on what defeated him. Also, when he breaks open one of his crates, there's a chance it will include an extra life from one of his games.
** His yo-yo attack is based on the opening cutscene of ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'', where he was seen playing with one. This was also his idle animation in the same game, and the yo-yo made another appearance in ''Crash Nitro Kart''.
** His appearance in this game might be one to the {{crossover}} games ''Crash Purple: Ripto's Rampage'' and ''Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy''.
** Less debatable is the fact that, at the start of the "Thumpin' Wumpa Islands" expansion pack level, Aku Aku directly calls Spyro his friend, meaning these two already met.
* SlideAttack: Another attack introduced in his second game.
* SpinAttack: His signature attack.
* TheUnintelligible: Similar to ''VideoGame/CrashTagTeamRacing'' and beyond. Usually [[ExpositionFairy Aku Aku]] speaks on his behalf, but he does manage to say his name when played as a card in Creation Clash and says "Ta-da!" from time to time.

* MadScientist: One of the most well known in all of gaming.
* RayGun: His primary method of attack since his first game.

* TimeMaster: One upgrade allows him access to a device created by Dr. N. Tropy, which creates a bubble that slows down enemies.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Unlike the other villain Senseis, he's very much still evil. He's just helping for his own purposes.

!! Starcast
-> ''"A shot in the dark!"''

* BizarreSexualDimorphism: His origin story, appearance, mystical power and even his name make it not that much of a stretch for him to be related to Star Strike (listed under Skylanders Debuting In Swap Force). If true, then the females of their species are small, humanoid and lack visible feet, while the males are colossal, four armed hunchbacks.
* {{Hammerspace}}: He visibly summons more throwing stars into his hands once he's thrown his current stock.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous
* {{Ninja}}: One who doesn't make use of more traditional means of misdirection as he can naturally turn invisible.
* NinjaLog: A very strange variation, wherein he does vanish and make his foes target something else, but in this case, the "log" is a living doppelganger of himself that fights back.
* StockNinjaWeaponry: Uses his four arms to throw shurikens.

** SealedGoodInACan: At least one tie-in book explains he's this instead.
* OracularHead: At least until ''[=SuperChargers=]''.
* SpiritAdvisor

!! Hugo
Eon's assistant. With Eon indisposed, he's the one who researches the Core of Light, how to fix it, and where to find the parts.

* AscendedExtra: Has a much more major role in ''[=SuperChargers=]'' and will give the player bonus missions to do (and which he will reward them for completing) after his story importance finally diminishes.
* DemotedToExtra: Appears in the introductory scene of ''Giants'' to give the Skylanders their mission, but doesn't come along on the adventure. Similarly, he only appears in the opening cinematics of ''Swap Force'' and ''Trap Team'' to spout a bit of exposition, then vanish.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Odd when compared to the other [=NPCs=], such as Flynn, Cali and some Mabu villagers.
* NerdGlasses

!! Flynn
The greatest pilot in all of Skylands, or so he claims. He uses these skills to assist the Skylanders, though he spends more time bragging about himself and hitting on Cali.

* CasanovaWannabe: He tries to hit on Cali. A lot.
* CatchPhrase: "...Boom!"
* ChickMagnet: Not so much in the games, but in the tie-in comics, it's shown that both Cali and Tessa have feelings for Flynn (not that they'd admit it).
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: For all his bragging and problems, Flynn actually ''could'' be one of the best pilots in all of Skylands, leaping into danger head-on with the Skylanders on many occasions(Provided he's in a gunboat of some kind). He helps you navigate a small fighter through a really tight tunnel system in ''Giants'' and pilots a gunboat to help you take out Anti-aircraft weaponry several times in ''Trap Team''.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Depends on who he's around. He's the wise guy to Cali, and the StraightMan to Tessa.
* GladIThoughtOfIt: It was Cali's idea that Flynn needs a propeller for his air balloon.
* HypocriticalHumor: His opinion of credits:
-> I don't know, the whole thing seems kind of egotistical, to me. I mean, you don't see ''me'' walking around bragging about all the great things I've done.
* IndyPloy: Comes up several times in ''Swap Force'', as Flynn's favorite battle plan is seemingly "wing it". [[IncrediblyLamePun Which is appropriate, him being an]] AcePilot and all.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: In ''Giants'', Flynn tries to not reveal his identity to the Pirates who hold a grudge against him, but he eventually lets his CatchPhrase slip and they identify him. Cue a mad scramble to get back to their ship.
* ShutUpHannibal: Gets one during Kaos' post defeat rant at the end. Cali approved.
* ThrowTheDogABone: In the end, after trying to impress Cali all game and [[CasanovaWannabe failing]], he finally manages to get her approval by giving Kaos a ShutUpHannibal.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Enchiladas. So much that sharing enchiladas with another individual is an "unbreakable bond".

* DeadpanSnarker: To Flynn's ego; she rolls eyes and {{Face Palm}}s a lot any time Flynn is speaking.
* DemotedToExtra: Just like Hugo was in ''Giants'', in ''Swap Force'', Cali only appears once in an early cinematic.
** She returns in ''Trap Team''
* DistressedDamsel: In ''Spyro's Adventure'', she gets captured by Kaos's army of Drow. In ''Swap Force'' (3DS version), Count Moneybone captures Cali and makes her his evil Undead minion. And in ''Trap Team'', the Golden Queen turns Cali into a gold statue. And at the start of ''[=SuperChargers=]'', she, along with Flynn, Hugo, and Master Eon, are captured by Kaos.

* BadassAdorable
* CatchPhrase: Has two, "Ka-blam!" and "Dragon feathers!"

* GiantFlyer
* LoyalAnimalCompanion

!! Buzz

* TheMentor: In ''[=SuperChargers=]'', he will train the Skylanders associated with the game. It's not a bad idea to undergo the training, as he will give stat boosts for the Skylander and his/her associated vehicle for each completed task.

!! Sharpfin

* ReformedCriminal
* ThreateningShark: Fortunately, he and his crew of mechanics make things better, not worse.

! Tropes applying to all Skylanders:
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Most Skylanders only get a toy for one, maybe two releases and that's it; though old toys can be used in newer games. This is especially true for "gimmick" Skylanders such as Giants and Trap Masters, who by their very nature will never be re-released. Notably averted in games, however, as every Skylander is playable in every game past its release.
* ElementalPowers: Each Skylander belongs to one of ten elements: [[BlowYouAway Air]], [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[FunctionalMagic Magic]], [[GadgeteerGenius Tech]], [[GreenThumb Life]], [[TheUndead Undead]], [[LightEmUp Light]], and [[CastingAShadow Dark]].
* EliteArmy: The Eon's Elite variants are stronger than their regular counterparts.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Started off with a bang at 32 playable Skylanders, which has only skyrocketed over the years. As of ''Imaginators'', there are currently '''175 individual Skylanders''', not including variants, Series 2+ or Supercharger versions.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Among all Skylanders, Gill Grunt, Pop Fizz, and Jet-Vac. They're the only Skylanders to have appeared in every game so far since their debut.

[[folder:Regular Skylanders debuting in ''Spyro's Adventure'']]

!! Bash

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bashfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Rock and roll!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Bash

Ever since he was a young dragon, Bash has wished to fly. In an attempt to build up enough momentum to do so, he learned how to curl into a ball and roll at incredible speed. This training has toughened his skin into natural armor, but hasn't gotten him airborne as he'd hoped.

* {{Balloonacy}}: [[PunnyName Birthday Bash]], an alter ego in ''Lost Islands'' uses a large cluster of helium balloons to finally get airborne.
* BerserkButton: Bash really doesn't like having the fact he can't fly mentioned.
* BewareMyStingerTail: It's got a spiked ball at its end, and as a ChargedAttack, it packs THE strongest wallop per hit of any (non-Giant) Skylander.
* CarryABigStick: His tail has a mace head on it, making it act like one. One of the upgrades on his "Granite Dragon" path is even named "Mace of Destruction".
* DinosaursAreDragons: Officially a dragon, but has a lot of saurian characteristics. Lampshaded with his Soul Gem upgrade, which gives him a triceratops helmet.
* DishingOutDirt: One of his powers has him making ''giant fists'' made of stone. He can also smack these around, making them like a projectile.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: With a RollingAttack ''and'' a SpinAttack.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Earth element.
* RollingAttack: One of his main attacks is to roll into enemies.
* SpinAttack: He can swing his tail to attack in a short distance around him.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: His first upgrade allows him to deflect shots with his Tail Swipe.

!! Boomer

[[quoteright:277:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boomerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Bring the boom!"''

Like most trolls, Boomer loves to [[StuffBlowingUp blow things up]]. But he wasn't interested in the trolls' war of conquest, so he turned against his kin and now blows stuff up FOR JUSTICE!

* ArtificialLimbs: WordOfGod claims his hands and feet are cybernetic, [[NoodleIncident due to an accident.]]
* CartoonBomb: His troll bombs are styled like this.
* ChargedAttack: The final upgrade of his "Clobber Troll" path is the ability to charge up his ground slam for an extra-damage slam.
* DelayedExplosion: Weaponized with one of his upgrades, which allows him to delay the explosion of a thrown dynamite stick. Helps for getting slightly more range out of a toss or for baiting enemies.
* GroundPunch: His secondary attack is slamming his fists on the ground to create a shockwave.
* HeelFaceTurn: Was originally in the troll army, but defected.
* MadBomber: He's a ''good'' version however.
** This is apparently a common trait among trolls. According to a scroll found in game, all their games are for some reason called "Boom!". Boomer just takes this trope UpToEleven as far as his species goes.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: The trolls' love of war and conquest didn't sit well with him. So he saved a town from the trolls and defected. He's apparently the only troll to ever earn the honor of being a Skylander.
* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Trolls in the ''Skylanders'' universe tend to be associated with technology and explosives. Boomer is light on the former, but ''very'' heavy on the latter.
* ShockwaveStomp: The result of his slamming attack. It can be upgraded to stun on his "Clobber Troll" upgrade path.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Has access to both sticks of dynamite and troll bombs.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In the book Machine of Doom, he tries to drown out Gill Grunt's singing by using sticks of dynamite as earplugs....
* YourAnswerToEverything: Three words: "BLOW IT UP!!"

!! Camo

[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/camofigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fruit punch!"''

Camo is half-plant due to being hatched at the roots of the Tree of Life. As a result, he can make fruits and vegetables grow to the point of bursting almost instantly. Eon first noticed him when a melon blew up in his face, convincing the young dragon to join the Skylanders.

* AlmightyJanitor: Doubles as Eon's personal gardener.
* BreathWeapon: He spits life energy that take the shape of balls of lights.
* DashingHispanic: The portrayal of his voice, as of ''Giants''.
* DeployableCover: His melon ring can double as a shield, since it surrounds him and causes him to briefly hide underground. The final upgrade on his "Melon Master" path encourages this by allowing the melon ring to be held indefinitely.
* EdibleAmmunition: He can unlock the ability to grow a ring of melons around him, which proceed to launch out and blow up upon contact with an enemy.
* GreenThumb: He has the ability to make plants grow [[StuffBlowingUp explosively]] fast.
* HealThyself: Get three of his BreathWeapon projectiles to circle around him at once and his HP will regenerate for a short time.
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Plant
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Life element.
* OrbitingParticleShield: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, holding the attack button down allows up
split to three of his BreathWeapon projectiles to orbit around him for protection.
* PlantPerson: A plant-dragon hybrid, shown by his green coloration and leaf tail.
* ThePrankster: A rather notorious one, in-universe. Likes to use his plant powers for mayhem.
* StuffBlowingUp: Camo's secondary attack is to lay down a vine of exploding ''melons''. One of his upgrade paths specializes in improving it, allowing him to quickly lay down a large string of explosives in front of him.

!! Chop Chop

[[quoteright:178:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chopchopfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Slice and dice!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Chop Chop, Elite Chop Chop

Created by the ancient Arkeyans with a fusion of technology and undead magic, Chop Chop is a skilled warrior with an indestructible shield. He has spent centuries looking for the vanished Arkeyans before being recruited as a Skylander.

* AudibleSharpness: His sword makes a noticeable metallic sound every time it's swung; to say nothing of when it actually hits something.
* AttackReflector: An innate ability of his shield.
* BadassGrandpa: Being an Arkeyan, he's close to being 10,000 years old.
* {{BFS}}: Should you take his "Vampiric Warrior" path, his sword eventually becomes as large as himself.
* CoolSword: It's even explicitly stated to be indestructible.
* CounterAttack: On his "Undead Defender" path, he gains the ability to absorb damage with his shield, then release it by using his shield bash.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Like with other Undead Skylanders, but applies double due to him being an [[AbusivePrecursors Arkeyan]] creation.
* DualWielding: His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him replace his shield with a second CoolSword.
* DemBones: One that's at least partially artificial.
* FriendToAllChildren: Played with. While he at least tries to be by using his shield to go take children sledging, their screams make it unclear if they actually like it or not.
* TheLeader: For the Undead element.
* LifeDrain: One of his upgrades gives him a chance of recovering health when attacking enemies with his sword.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: His shield can block attacks and reflect projectiles, but he can only hold it up for so long.
* {{Magitek}}: The Arkeyans are said to have found the connection between technology and magic, and Chop Chop is a demonstration of that.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: To the Arkeyans.
* ShieldBash: An early upgrade allows him to do this while his shield's up, thanks to a spike being added to the front. On the "Undead Defender" path, it can be upgraded to stun as well.

!! Cynder

[[quoteright:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cynderfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Volts and Lightning!"''

Kidnapped as an egg by the evil dragon Malefor, Cynder was raised in the ways of darkness until Spyro rescued her. ([[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Wait, this sounds familiar...]]) Anyway, she wishes to make up for all the evil she's done under Malefor, but many are wary of the dark powers she still commands.

* ActionGirl
* TheAtoner: Just like her ''Legend of Spyro'' counterpart.
* BackFromTheDead: The Mabu kid Quigly asks if this happened to her in ''Spyro's Adventure''.
* CastingAShadow /MakeMeWannaShout: [[Videogame/TheLegendOfSpyro Her shadow and fear abilities are back.]]
* BroadStrokes: Cynder's bio essentially states that some version of ''The Legend of Spyro'' trilogy happened in this continuity.
** WordOfGod confirms that Cynder's origins in ''Skylanders'' and her traits from ''The Legend of Spyro'' trilogy is intentionally left ambiguous, leaving it to longtime Spyro the Dragon fans to use their own imaginations to fill in the blanks.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* GothGirlsKnowMagic: Her skills and upgrades info. in Eon's guide for Spyro's Adventure, Eon likes to compare her to a goth, at least when talking about her Shadow dash/strike["like an angry goth/like an even angrier goth"].
* HeelFaceTurn: Just like her ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' counterpart.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Undead element.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can be snarky, brooding and has a dislike for jokes or pranks, but she still shares the same goal of all Skylanders: protect the world of Skylands from the forces of evil.
* PutOnABus: Does not get a repose for Trap Team.
** TheBusCameBack: Cynder returns to the spotlight in ''Imaginators'' as a storyline [=NPC=] in a level pack story.
* [[HairColorDissonance Scale Color Dissonance]]/PurpleIsTheNewBlack: In the first two ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' games Cynder was black and red - in Skylanders she is now bright purple and pink, with even higher contrast than in ''Dawn of the Dragon''.
* ShockAndAwe: Cynder's primary attack is her lightning breath.
* SpreadShot: Her lightning breath can hit multiple enemies across a wide area, even without upgrades.

!! Dino-Rang

[[quoteright:254:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dinorangfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Come rang or shine!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Dino-Rang

Dino-Rang came to the Skylands in a freak portal accident, taken from his home and his people far away. While helping the Skylanders fight for justice, he searches for the mythical Twin Diamond Boomerangs, believing they'll lead him to his destiny.

* AwesomeAussie: His voice brings this to mind.
* BattleBoomerang: His main weapon. Oddly, while they do return to him, they also shatter when they hit anything, unless a path-specific upgrade is bought.
* BerserkButton: According to his biography, he hates being referred as a [[DinosaursAreDragons dragon]].
* CulturedBadass: According to the Book of Elements, he's a very talented ballroom dancer.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Once accidentally launched his dance partner screaming into the air while attempting a simple lift maneuver. She has yet to come back down.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The first dinosaur Skylander, and the only one until Slobber Tooth.

!! Double Trouble

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doubletroublefigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Boom shock-a-laka!"''

-> Notable variants: Royal Double Trouble

Hailing from the tropical regions of Skylands, Double Trouble was searching for spell ingredients when he found a lily said to multiply a spell's power. But after he ate it, he found it multiplied something else, giving him the ability to make half-size, exploding copies of himself.

* ActionBomb: His copies. They also draw attacks away from him.
* ChainLightning: His Wow Pow upgrade allows his Eldritch Beam to chain to different foes.
* CoolMask: A huge tribal mask.
* CloneDegeneration: His clones are much
smaller than him. And explosive.
* ExpendableClone: They serve as his secondary attack, even.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: His reason for not getting mad when the lily's ability backfired by multiplying him instead of his magic spell's power is because he was incredibly lonely, prior to that event.
* MesACrowd: he can create many doubles of himself, though they don't have the same abilities as him and are mostly mobile explosives.
* ShoutOut: In ''Giants'', he sings the "level complete" music from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' after defeating a large slew of Mooks.
* WitchDoctor: His design inspiration, shown by his tribal mask, feathers, and staff.

!! Drill Sergeant

[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drillseargantfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Licensed to drill!"''

An ancient robot built by the Arkeyans, Drill Sergeant was buried for centuries until Terrafin wound up finding and reactivating him. Drill Sergeant swore to be Terrafin's servant in thanks, but Terrafin told him not to serve him at all - an order that Drill Sergeant has followed ever since.

* DrillTank
* RocketPunch
* RobotBuddy
* MoreDakka: His Auto-blaster.
* ThisIsADrill
* VerbalTic: Peppers his speech with beeping noises. [[UnsoundEffect Which are said rather than emitted.]]

!! Drobot

[[quoteright:248:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drobotfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Blink and destroy!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Drobot

Drobot was always fascinated by mechanical devices, so when he found some LostTechnology he studied it and used to build a set of armor. His new gear includes lasers, spinning gear shooters, flight enhancement gear, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a deep booming voice synthesizer]], all of which he uses to defend the Skylands.

* EyeBeams / FrickinLaserBeams : His primary attack is to shoot rapidfire, long-range energy beams from his eyes. The "Master Blaster" path of upgrades also adds wing blasters.
* GadgeteerGenius: Drobot built his suit of PoweredArmor himself using some lost technology he came across and his backstory implies he tinkered around a good bit beforehand.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Tech element.
* PinballProjectile: Drobot's Bladegears bounce off of walls, even without upgrades. They can also be upgraded into exploding bladegears.
* PlayerGuidedMissile: Drobot's "Wow Pow" ability is a large remote-controlled Bladegear.
* PowerGlows: The orange orb on [=LightCore=] Drobot's pack lights up.
* PoweredArmor: Laser blasts, spinning gear projectiles, a robotic voice, and jet-powered flight thrusters. It's unclear whether Drobot actually ''has'' any wings underneath that armor.
** His official bio implies he does, just that they're covered under flight enhancement technology.
* ShoutOut: To ShootEmUp games. His "Hover Mode" upgrade even allows him to fly while facing in one direction, just like in a VerticalScrollingShooter!
* SpreadShot: His secondary attack is to launch a pair of metal blade-gears that can rebound off of walls; the "Clockwork Dragon" path of upgrades allows him to launch three at once.

!! Eruptor

[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eruptorfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Born to burn!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Eruptor, Volcanic Eruptor, Elite Eruptor

Eruptor's people once lived deep underneath a volcano until an eruption sent everything up to the surface. As for Eruptor himself, he's said to have an absolutely volcanic temper.

* BalloonBelly: When he uses his Wow Pow move Lava Barf, his belly bulges.
* CowardlyLion: In direct contrast to his usual depiction as possessing a HairTriggerTemper, in ''Imaginators'', Eruptor is easily frightened by bugs or rats and is usually scared to some degree. The riskiest thing he does is ''bake a cake'' which, true to form, gets assaulted by a force of... bugs and rats.
* TheDitz: When he isn't mad, he's fantastically unaware of himself. Exemplified in the opening of the Swap Force reveal trailer.
-> '''Eruptor:''' "How come they never say the final two numbers?"
-> '''Pop Fizz:''' "So it's really quiet when the show starts!"
-> '''Eruptor:''' "Oh yeah, that makes sense. [[HypocriticalHumor Someone talking over the opening would be so annoying!]]"
* FingerlessHands: As Lava Lance Eruptor, he is capable of driving his Burn-Cycle and wielding a lance with ease, despite having no fingers.
* {{Gasshole}}: As seen in the "Boomtime" commercial.
-> '''Eruptor''': When I get in there, I'm gonna... BUUUUUURRRP!
-> '''Terrafin''': Shoot, Eruptor!
** Returns with a vengeance in ''Imaginators'', where simply getting him nervous is enough to get him belching. Of course, he spends most of the storyline nervous.
* HairTriggerTemper
* TheLeader: For the Fire element.
* MagmaMan
* ObliviousToHisOwnDescription: See the quote under TheDitz, above.
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Eruptor's mouth glows.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Not only is he often depicted as puking up large quantities of lava in trailers and cinematics, but his Series 3 figure is actually ''called'' "Lava Barf Eruptor".
** One of his attacks and upgrade paths, in general.

!! Flameslinger

[[quoteright:208:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flameslingerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Let the flames begin!"''

Flameslinger is an extremely gifted elf, having a second sight that lets him see distant events via flames. He's also such an incredible archer that he wears a blindfold ''just'' to prove his skill. In addition to that, he saved a fire spirit in his youth, who granted him a magic bow and fire boots in gratitude.

* AnimalEyeSpy: Has a variation, seeing through fire rather than animals.
* ArcherArchetype
* ArrowsOnFire
* BlindfoldedVision: Fireslinger is a blindfolded ''archer''. He does it simply as a SelfImposedChallenge.
* FertileFeet: Inverted; he can have trails of flame trail behind him (but they're not permanent, keeping this out of WalkingWasteland).
* FireballEyeballs: He's said to have these under the blindfold.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* RainOfArrows
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: The Book Of Elements claims he lacks the ability to prevent his shoes from burning at every step, to the point that he's no longer allowed in most people's houses, since he regularly sets fire to any carpet he touches. [[StoryAndGameplaySegregation even though we never see this happen in-game, especially when he chooses to walk.]]
* SpreadShot[=/=]{{Multishot}}: One of his upgrade paths allows him to fire three arrows at once.
* TrickedOutShoes: They can leave a path of flames in his wake.
* TheUnreveal: In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kv4sueAp_s announcement trailer]] for ''Giants'', Flameslinger is seen among a handful of characters witnessing Tree Rex's re-appearance. He lifts his blindfold to get a closer look... only to reveal there's ''another'' blindfold underneath.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!! Ghost Roaster

[[quoteright:252:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghostroasterfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"No chain, no gain!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Ghost Roaster

Once a simple chef, Ghost Roaster was turned into a ghoul after falling into the Valley of the Undead. He then consumed an entire ghost village, for which he was chained to a spiked ball as punishment. Eon heard of this and recruited Ghost Roaster, feeling a ghost-eater could be useful - as long as he only eats ''evil'' spirits.

* AlienLunch: He's a foodie, just not of anything we'd call edible.
* BigEater: He ate ''an entire ghost town''. Nuff said.
* CaptainErsatz: Of the Crypt Keeper, from ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt''. This is much more apparent via voice work in ''Giants''.
* CursedWithAwesome: His punishment is what gave him his primary weapon in the first place.
* EpicFlail
* EvilLaugh
* HighCollarOfDoom
* MeaningfulRename: Ghost Roaster was once named Olav, but decided to give himself a new name after being transformed into what he is now.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: Essentially the "Mythic Ghouls" type.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Stormblade's Blue in the comic arc "Secret Agent Secrets".
* SkullForAHead
* TokenEvilTeammate: Ghost Roaster's bio suspiciously lacks any heroic deeds in his past. Eon just thought it'd be better to have a ghost-eater on ''his'' side.

!! Gill Grunt

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gillgruntfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> '''"Fear the fish!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Gill Grunt

Gill Grunt is a gillman soldier who met a beautiful mermaid during one tour of duty. He kept a promise to return to her after his tour, but she had been kidnapped by pirates in the meantime. He continues to search for her, and has become a Skylander to put a stop to such evil.

* AbnormalAmmo: His Water Weaver upgrade path lets him shoot ''exploding starfish'' at enemies.
* AnchorsAway / ChargedAttack: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, hold the attack button to ready a large ship anchor instead of the usual harpoons.
* ArtEvolution: In his offical artwork for series two on, his jaw seems to be less prominent, and his eyes appear rounder.
** ProngsOfPoseidon: His Wow Pow upgrade changes the anchor into a SpreadShot of tridents for a three-way attack.
* BottomlessMagazines: Initially averted with his water backpack, which has limited but regenerating water supply. Played straight once he gets the "Reserve Water Tank" upgrade in his Water Weaver path.
** Also applies when he stands in any amount of water large enough for him to get both feet in.
* DreadfulMusician: Gillmen are known for their singing voices, but not in a good way.
* FantasticRecruitmentDrive: Known for recruiting other undersea Skylanders, like Punk Shock or Echo.
* FishPeople
* HarpoonGun: His primary weapon. Can be upgraded with SpreadShot and ChargedAttack capabilities.
* JetPack: A water-pressure jetpack!
* {{Knockback}}: His power-hose attack inflicts relatively little damage, but is explicitly noted to push enemies backwards when it hits.
* TheLeader: For the Water element.
* ShockAndAwe: Deep Dive Gill Grunt's trident has this power when upgraded enough to the correct path.
* SpreadShot: One path of upgrades enables him to fire a triple spread of harpoons. His Wow Pow upgrade allows him to do this with his ChargedAttack.
* VisualPun: His series 4 version literally rides the wave.

!! Hex

[[quoteright:169:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hexfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fear the dark!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Hex

Hex was once a powerful elven sorceress who entered the underworld to confront Malefor, the Undead Dragon King. However, she returned... changed, becoming an Undead herself. Many are now suspicious of her dark powers, but Eon continues to have faith in her.

* ActionGirl
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Though unlike most example of the trope, she kept control.
* BadWithTheBone: Many, if not all of her spells are skull- or bone-shaped. Her toy even shows her holding a spectral skull.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Yes, the undead witch dressed in black with a blue skin, [[VoiceOfTheLegion guttural voice]] and skull-based magic is a good guy.
* LadyOfBlackMagic
* {{Necromancer}}
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: While most of the characters have a few, Hex gets the notable distinction of having defeated ''Malefor'' (though not actually ''kill'' him), which is no small feat.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* PerpetualFrowner
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Hex's crystal ball glows.
* VoiceOfTheLegion

!! Ignitor

[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ignitorfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Slash and burn!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Ignitor

On his first quest as a knight, Ignitor was deceived by a witch into wearing a cursed set of armor; he thought it was fire-resistant but dragonfire instead turned him into living flame within the armor. Predictably, he makes the best of this, but still seeks revenge on that witch for tricking him.

* AnimatedArmor[=/=]CursedWithAwesome: Granted, being a turned into a sentient flame is not pleasant, but he TookALevelInBadass thanks to it.
* FlamingSword
** AnAxeToGrind: His sword becomes this when upgraded.
* KnightInShiningArmor: More like a Flaming Knight in Shining Armor...
* MeaningfulRename: His name used to be Ignatius.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: ''"Thou has been vanquished!"''

!! Lightning Rod

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lightningrodfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"One strike and you're out!"''

Lightning Rod once lived in the Cloud Kingdom, beloved for his heroic deeds and good looks. But it wasn't enough for him. He eventually met Spyro, whose stories of his adventures in faraway lands inspired him to seek out Eon and join the Skylanders.

* BadassBeard
* BigEater: According to the Official 2013 ''Skylanders'' Annual, Lightning Rod consumes an amount of food considered overboard for a human diet. 400 eggs for breakfast, 25 whole livestock for lunch and several sheep for dinner, anyone?
* {{Expy}}: Bearded lightning-bolt-slinger? Talk about [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Zeus]].
* FlyingOnACloud
* FogFeet: As pointed out by Quigley in ''Spyro's Adventure''.
-> '''Quigley''': You have a cloudy butt! Hahahaha!
* {{Hunk}}: Particularly in-universe, where he's apparently nicknamed "Rod the Bod".
* NoIndoorVoice: He never drops below a drawn out, ''echoing'' shout.
* ShockAndAwe: Throws lightning bolts.
* WalkingShirtlessScene

!! Prism Break

[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prismbreakfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"The beam is supreme!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Prism Break

Prism Break was once a fearsome, antisocial rock golem, until he was buried in a cave-in. Freed a hundred years later, Prism Break had not only had a change of heart but the earth's pressure had transformed parts of his rocky body into powerful crystals, which he decided to put to use in the defense of the Skylands.

* EmeraldPower: Literally; an upgrade that enhances his attack power also turns his crystals green.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Unlike Drobot's, however, they are at least ''instantaneous'' beams of light energy, though they do have a more limited range.
* GemstoneAssault
* GroinAttack: When he was freed from his imprisonment, one of the miners hit him with a pick-axe in "an area Prism Break doesn't like to talk about". Although it's not explicitly said, it's safe to assume he got hit... [[Series/CSIMiami *puts on shades*]] ...in the stones.
* HandBlast: If you can call those hands.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Best seen on his [[http://images.wikia.com/spyro/images/d/d6/PrismBreak_01.jpg portrait]].
* PowerCrystal
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Prism Break's hand crystals glow.
* SealedBadassInACan
* TookALevelInKindness: Before he became who he is today, Prism Break was an irritable rock golem. Then the cave-in happened, and he had a change of heart (and arms).

!! Slam Bam

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slambamfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Armed and dangerous!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Slam Bam, Elite Slam Bam

Slam Bam lived a simple life on a glacier, making ice sculptures and ice surfing. That is, until Kaos destroyed the glacier, leaving him to drift on an iceberg for days until he landed on Eon's Island.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti
* GogglesDoNothing: He's given a complementary pair with his Soul Gem upgrade.
* AnIcePerson

!! Sonic Boom

[[quoteright:217:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonicboomfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Full scream ahead!"''

A gryphon who hoped to protect her hatchlings, but a wizard was able to find her and curse her eggs; the chicks would hatch, but return to being eggs within moments and hatch again in an endless cycle. Making the best of a bad situation, she taught her chicks how to fight when hatched, and joined the Skylanders to protect others from suffering this kind of evil.

* ActionGirl
* ActionMom: She's even able to get an assist from her chicks.
* AreaOfEffect: Her Sonic blasts are this.
* CursedWithAwesome: She trained her cursed hatchlings to assist her in battle anytime she needs them with effectively no risk to them. Sure, probably not pleasant for her, but certainly helpful.
* FusionDance: Sonic Boom's Wow Pow ability allows her to combine her hatchlings into one "Super Baby" with a much stronger bite.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Her primary attack is a blast of sonic energy.
* OneHitPointWonder: Sonic Boom's hatchlings vanish in a puff of baby feathers the moment they take any damage, and the player must toss them again.
* OurGryphonsAreDifferent: Sonic Boom resembles an ''opinicus'', with her eagle's head and wings, but lion's tail, and four clawed legs. This also applies to her (normal) hatchlings; the Super Baby looks distinctly more dinosaur-like, with scrawny front arms and wings but a large head, back legs and long tail.
* SplashDamage: Her "Echolocation" upgrade causes her sonic blasts to send out secondary shockwaves upon impact, which inflict additional damage.
* SpreadShot: Her sonic breath already has a wide area of effect, but the "Medea Griffin" path of upgrades enables Sonic Boom to toss ''all'' of her eggs simultaneously, in a spread pattern.
* WeaponizedOffspring

!! Spyro

[[quoteright:284:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spyrofigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"All fired up!"''

-> Notable variants: Dark Spyro, Legendary Spyro, Elite Spyro

A legendary purple dragon from a faraway land, Spyro is famous for his many adventures - [[Franchise/SpyroTheDragon perhaps you've heard]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro of some of them]]. Having been invited to join the Skylanders, Spyro now protects the Skylands just as fiercely as he has fought evil elsewhere.

* BreathWeapon: Standard-issue dragon fire, but it's at least upgradable.
* ChargedAttack: The "Daybringer Flame" upgrade allows the player to charge up a large fireball by holding down the Attack button.
* CompositeCharacter: His bio gives him the personality of classic Spyro but also calls him a legendary Purple Dragon like the ''Legend of Spyro'' character. Cynder's backstory even implies he's fought this world's Malefor and has a history with Cynder. His tongue is also a forked tongue like he had in the classic games and he's offhandedly referred to as an old friend of Crash Bandicoot's.
** WordOfGod confirms that Spyro's origins in ''Skylanders'' and his traits from previous Spyro games is intentionally left ambiguous, leaving it to longtime Spyro the Dragon fans to use their own imaginations to fill in the blanks.
* DarkIsNotEvil: "Dark Spyro" has been noted as using evil energy without being corrupted by it.
* DeathFromAbove: Spyro's strongest move is his headbash, purchasable after finding his Soul Gem.
* {{Flight}}: You know the one...
* GlassCannon: Dark Spyro in comparison to the normal version; with higher attack but lower defense.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Magic element.
* TheLeader: For the Magic element, and for all modern-day Skylanders.
* MythologyGag: On top of being a CompositeCharacter, his Series 2 Wow Pow even looks like the convexity attack used to finish off Cynder in ''A New Beginning''. [[SupernaturalIsPurple Especially when used by Dark Spyro.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Even his dash attack has hints of flame to it, although it's not actually a fire attack.
* PurpleIsTheNewBlack: Dark Spyro's magical attacks are purple, while Dark Spyro's black.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Mentioned in a nod to his ''Legend'' counterpart, but hasn't been demonstrated.
* PutOnABus: After appearing in the first three ''Skylanders'' games, Spyro does not get a repose for ''Trap Team''.
** TheBusCameBack: He returns to the spotlight in ''Imaginators'' as a storyline [=NPC=].

-> ''"Silent, but deadly!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Stealth Elf, Dark Ninja Stealth Elf, Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf

Awaking in the forest with no memory of who she was, she was adopted by a ninja-like creature and raised in the art of stealth. She now searches to find where she came from.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Her top exposes her cleavage. [[http://s1228.photobucket.com/user/JCKane/media/Skylanders%20Cuts/life-legendary-stealthelf-mainFullCut_zpsac98f7cf.png.html Best seen on her series 2 promo images.]]
* ActionGirl
* BareYourMidriff: Her outfit is divided into two parts, unlike most fictional ninja garb.
** Averted in ''SWAP Force'', as she wears a more traditional ninja costume for her Series 3 and Dark variants.
* BreakoutCharacter: Just look at the size of her bio compared to any other character on this page.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Some of what she says and does in the games and commercials tend to give her {{Adorkable}} behavior traits. The books and comics, meanwhile, tends to make her out more as being [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] with NoSocialSkills - Except for the book of Elements, which shows her more as BrilliantButLazy (uses her duplicates to get out of doing anything she doesn't want to do herself).
* DualWielding: A pair of daggers.
* FlechetteStorm: In the 3DS games, where she no longer has Arboreal Acrobatics as an ability [thanks to them being platformer games where everyone can double jump], and her Stealthier Decoy ability being changed into a dash attack version called Stealthy Decoy, Stealth Elf now has Thorn Throw attacks, which is a {{downplayed|Trope}} version of this trope. Gets completely straight with her final 3DS upgrade called Thorn Storm, which still only doubles as DeathOfAThousandCuts in ''Spyro's Adventure'', but becomes much more effective in later games, where it's just great for clearing huge crowds of enemies from a distance.
* FragileSpeedster: In the 3DS version, at least. She can't take a hit but she's your best bet for any speed challenge and the only one of the starters who stands a chance in the second half of Dark Mirror.
** SuperSpeed: the "Speed" stat icon is literally an image of her running.
* GratuitousNinja
** HighlyVisibleNinja
* MundaneUtility: Likes using her decoy to do things she doesn't want to do herself, from listening to boring meetings and conversations, to doing typical household chores.
** NinjaLog: Her special attack is to vanish and leave a decoy in her place. After upgrading, they're dummies that fight back.
* NoSocialSkills: Known for being impatient, temperamental, [[BrutalHonesty and a bit too direct.]] Her mini-counterpart, Whisper Elf, is likewise able to make situations completely awkward by [[InnocentlyInsensitive speaking her mind too much]] ([[TheQuietOne when she even speaks at all)]].
* KnifeNut
* TheLeader: For the Life element.
* OurElvesAreBetter
* ReverseGrip
* SkirtOverSlacks: DependingOnTheArtist, the wrap around her waist is either a sash or a full skirt, the latter of which makes it this trope.
* SomethingWeForgot: At the end of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljI5xI0-_6g Giants Easter Surprise commercial]], thanks to her hiding skills during the Easter egg hunt [[GoneHorriblyRight being a bit too good....]]
-> '''Stealth Elf [[TheStinger (late in the middle of the night)]]''': Yeah...I told I was good at this. ({{Beat}}) Guys...? GUYS!
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

-> For her mini counterpart, Whisper Elf
* FunSize: To Stealth Elf.
* NinjaLog: Can leave scarecrow - like decoys in her place, though hers appears to be made of yarn, as opposite to Stealth Elf's straw decoys.
* TheNoseless: Yet she has nostrils.
* No Social Skills: Known for speaking her mind too much. [[TheQuietOne When she talks, at all]].
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Only mini from Trap Team to return in Superchargers - [[DemotedToExtra as a healing unit for Super Shot Stealth Elf's life gem skill, Health Elf....]]

-> Stealth elf's [=SuperChargers=] form, Super Shot Stealth Elf, and her vehicle, the Stealth Stinger
* AbnormalAmmo: Her Gatling gun uses daggers as ammunition. This is lampshaded in her primary attack's description:
-> Press <primary attack button> and hold to lock onto enemies and shoot daggers at them. Yes, it's a gun that shoots daggers.
* AbsoluteCleavage: Not in the console games, but the ''[=SuperChargers=] Racing'' supplimental game, where her jump suit is zipped down to expose her cleavage. [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/df6dHsnEa2Y/maxresdefault.jpg Also shows up in some images.]]
* AcePilot: She flies a helicopter.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Her Arborial Acrobatics ability has been replaced with the ability to spin around her Gatling gun.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Her jumpsuit looks to match her body pretty snuggly.
* FragileSpeedster: The Stealth Stinger isn't very strong and power with its shots, but can rapid fire on enemies and has a high acceleration rate.
* GatlingGood
* MoreDakka: Both her and the Stealth Stinger can rapidfire attacks at enemies.
* StealthExpert: Except now she leave her Gatling gun behind, while doing so. The Stealth Stinger is also the only vehicle capable of doing this.
* TheMedic: Her Soul Gem has her summon Whisper Elf, now as Health Elf, for the purpose of healing after damage is taken.
* {{Thememobile}}: The Stealth Stinger is one to both her and plants.
* TheTurretMaster: When hidden, she now leaves her Gatling gun behind to act as both this and a distraction. It can even be equipped to home in on and fire at enemies automatically.

-> ''"[[DropTheHammer Drop the hammer!]]"''

* SimpletonVoice

!! Sunburn

[[quoteright:286:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sunburnfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Roast and toast!"''

Sunburn is the Skylands' only known dragon/phoenix hybrid, granting him rare magical powers like the ability to teleport. While he is very proud of what he is, this also makes Sunburn a target for those who want to capture and study him for their own ends. Being a Skylander provides him not only with the chance to use his powers for good, but more importantly with protection from anyone who would hunt him.

* BreathWeapon
* CollisionDamage: Sunburn's Phoenix Dash; the "Phoenix Grand Blaze" upgrade makes Sunburn's body ignite in flames after using his firebreath long enough, allowing him to damage nearby enemies by touch.
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Phoenix
* HybridPower

* ThePhoenix
* TeleportersAndTransporters: His teleport move also inflicts CollisionDamage.

-> ''"It's feedin' time!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Terrafin

A land shark from the dirt seas, Terrafin was the local lifeguard until the heat from a massive explosion fused the sand into glass. He turned to boxing, becoming a champion until he by chance met a Portal Master and decided to fight as a Skylander.

* ChainsawGood: As an upgrade, he gets a chainsaw ''fin''.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks
* FastTunnelling
* GoodOldFisticuffs: He later gets upgraded with brass- and spiked- knuckle gloves.
** PowerFist: His spiked knuckles.
* TheLeader: For the Earth element.
* SandWorm
* ScaryBlackMan: This is what his voice sounds like.
* ShamuFu: His body slam probably qualifies.

-> ''"No gold, no glory!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Trigger Happy, Springtime Trigger Happy, Elite Trigger Happy, Power Blue Double Dare Trigger Happy

Nobody knows where this gremlin came from but... he likes guns. And shooting stuff. And shooting more stuff. And ... well, you get the idea.

* ATeamFiring: As stated, he's a bit infamous for his lack of aiming....
* BlingBlingBang: Trigger Happy uses "gold guns" that [[AbnormalAmmo fire gold coins.]]
** His other attack is throwing an exploding gold safe. That can be upgraded to a more damaging exploding gold pot of gold coins, and that can be upgraded to an even more damaging single (but ginormous) exploding gold coin. And that single coin is yet even more damaging if it comes up heads.
* GatlingGood: His normal tertiary ability is a mounted Gatling gun.
* GlassCannon: Offensively is one of the most powerful Skylanders, but also has some of the lowest maximum health.
* TheGunslinger: Not only does he use guns, his backstory is pretty much what you'd expect from a western gunslinger.
* GunsAkimbo
* HumanCannonball: Double Dare Trigger Happy's tertiary attack is launching himself out of a cannon.
* LaughingMad: He never seems to stop laughing and giggling.
* LawOfInverseRecoil: His Golden Yamato Blast attack shoves him halfway across the screen.
* TheLeader: For the Tech element.
* MoreDakka: Dude's called "Trigger Happy"; what do you think?
* OverlyLongTongue: One trailer even shows it to be prehensile.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: While not of a traditional design, his gold guns have visible rotary chambers.
* RidingTheBomb: Big Bang Trigger Happy
* TriggerHappy: Um... yeah.
* WaveMotionGun: His strongest ChargedAttack, the "Golden Yamato Blast", packs so much punch that not only can it clear an entire screen of Mooks with one shot, but the recoil from firing it forces ''him'' backwards quite a distance too.

!! Voodood

[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/voodoodfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Axe first, questions later!"''

-> Notable variants: Elite Voodood

During his rite of passage in the Cave of Trials, Voodood discovered a dragon skeleton with the legendary Axe Reaver where its heart would be.

* TurtlePower

!! Wham-Shell

[[quoteright:270:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whamshellfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Brace for the mace!"''

King of a peaceful underwater civilization, Wham-Shell repelled an invasion of trolls drilling for oil, though the invasion did scatter his people far and wide. He's since joined the Skylanders to defend against these sorts of atrocities.

* AncestralWeapon: Wham-Shell's mace has been passed down from one king to the next for generations.
* GiantEnemyCrab: He's vaguely crustacean-like, anyway.
* PowerGlows: As a Lightcore, his mace lights up.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething

!! Whirlwind

[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whirlwindfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Twists of fury!"''

-> Notable variants: Polar Whirlwind, Elite Whirlwind

Whirlwind is half-dragon, half-unicorn; unfortunately both races' jealousy makes her an outsider (the dragons covet her beauty, the unicorns envy her ability to fly). Nonetheless, when trolls hunted both species, she jumped to their defense. The result... well, let's just say that evil beings are now ''terrified'' of rainbows.

* ActionGirl
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Got this treatment from both of her species.
* BadassAdorable: She's part unicorn, she shoots rainbows, she has feathery wings... even her giggles are adorable!
* TheDreaded: The trolls invoked Whirlwind's wrath by hunting both of the races she's descended from. The resulting RoaringRampageOfRescue was so great that she's now feared quite greatly by the forces of evil. Yes, [[KillerRabbit the dragon/unicorn hybrid who shoots rainbows]] (of [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM]]) from her horn is TheDreaded!
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: Heck, even a ''black hole'' (the "Rainbow Singularity" upgrade) is better with rainbows! Her enemies call it the "Rainbow Of Doom"[[note]](yes, that is the official name)[[/note]] for a reason.
* KillerRabbit: Is ''far'' more deadly than you'd expect from something that's half-unicorn and shoots rainbows.
* HalfBreedDiscrimination: Wasn't accepted by either species
pages due to her hybrid nature. This did not stop her from going on a RoaringRampageOfRescue against the trolls for hunting them though.
LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
* HealingShiv: After acquiring her Soul Gem upgrade, Whirlwind's Rainbow of Doom doubles as a Rainbow of Healing in two-player co-op.
[[Characters/SkylandersPlayableCharacters Playable Characters]]
* HybridMonster: Dragon/Unicorn
[[Characters/SkylandersVillains Villains]]
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Air element.
* TheLeader: For the Air element.
* MoodSwinger: She has the grace of a unicorn, and the fury of a dragon; but she's been trying to curb her temper since becoming a Skylander.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Her unseen adventure in the Frostfest Mountain, which led to the Frost Elves erecting an immense golden statue of her that doubles as a handy storage platform for [[MacGuffin The Illuminator]].
* RoaringRampageOfRescue: When the trolls started hunting the two races she's a hybrid of, she went on one of these that made her TheDreaded to evildoers.
* ShockAndAwe: Whirlwind's secondary attack is a "tempest cloud" that electrocutes nearby enemies.
* WingedUnicorn: Whirlwind is a half dragon, half unicorn, but for some reason has ''feathered'' wings instead of dragon ones, giving her the look of one of these.

!! Wrecking Ball

[[quoteright:213:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wreckingballfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Wreck n' roll!"''

Wrecking Ball started out as a grub worm, to be used as an ingredient in a wizard's magic potion. Surprisingly, he swallowed the entire potion, swelling to enormous size. Then he swallowed the wizard.

-> ''"Ride the lightning!"''

Zap was born a prince of water dragons, but was swept away by a riptide and adopted by electric eels. There, he not only built a harness to store and discharge electricity, but he also became an excellent speed swimmer, with only the dolphins able to be a match for him.

* BreathWeapon: He spits balls of electricity as his primary attack.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Water element.
* RaisedByWolves - err, electric eels instead of his own dragonkind.
* ShockAndAwe: Though he learned the how-tos from being raised by electric eels, he has to use a special harness to provide the electricity for it.
* VerbalTic: As of ''Giants'', his voice constantly sounds like someone gargling and talking at the same time.

!! Zook

[[quoteright:279:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zookfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Locked and loaded!"''

* BambooTechnology: ''Literally'', as he has a bamboo carved ''bazooka''.
* {{BFG}}
* GlorySeeker
* PlantPerson
* SwissArmyWeapon: Of the more mundane variant. Zook's bazooka is also used sometimes as a telescope, a didgeridoo, and as a lunchbox. He sometimes also uses it a a place to sit.

[[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chillfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Stay cool!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Chill, Legendary Chill

Chill was a decorated knight of the ice kingdom and the Snow Queen's captain of the guard. But then the armies of cyclops invaded and captured the queen, which Chill has never forgiven herself for. Chill has exiled herself from the kingdom until she can regain her honor, and is always keeping an eye out for news of her queen.

* ActionGirl
* AmbiguouslyHuman
* CombatPragmatist: She's a noble knight, but at least one source has said she's not above fighting dirty.
* CoolSword (no pun intended)
* DoubleWeapon
* AnIcePerson: Like Slam Bam, she's more affiliated to Ice than to Water.
* KnightInShiningArmor
* MyGreatestFailure: She couldn't prevent her queen from being kidnapped.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Chill
* RedemptionQuest
* ShamuFu: Her Soul Gem power lets her summon a narwhal to attack.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Though it's a DoubleWeapon and she throws it spinning horizontally, so it's not ''blatantly'' implausible.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Chill's accent in ''Giants'' has a peculiar mixture of German, Russian and Scandinavian.
* WinterRoyalLady: Not Chill herself, but the Snow Queen she serves. That said, drop the "royalty" part and Chill fits quite well.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Going by her eyebrows, anyway, as her actual hair is hidden under her helmet.

!! Flashwing

[[quoteright:272:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flashwingfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Blinded by the light!"''

-> Notable variants: Jade Flashwing, [=LightCore=] Flashwing

Nobody's sure where this gem dragon came from. She was first found when Bash wished on a shooting star (to fly, of course) and witnessed it crash into a valley, and when he went to investigate he saw her emerge from a giant geode. Unfortunately, she didn't know that Bash was friendly and she, well, sent him flying.

* ActionGirl
* AttackDrone / SentryGun: Somewhere between the two is Flashwing's "Super Shards" path of upgrades: Fire her crystal shards into a wall and they will stick there, shooting their own crystal shards in sync with Flashwing's own. Flashwing can have up to three such shards at once, potentially quadrupling her firepower in the meantime.
* TheBait: In the ''Lost Islands'' mobile game, Flashwing wants to go on a mission to the Pirate Grotto. Why? Because she's made out of gems and the pirates will mistake her for treasure.
* BewareMyStingerTail: She can fire energy beams from the gem on her tail. Her Soul Gem ability, "Crystal Lighthouse", is implied to utilize the gem on her tail as well.
* CameFromTheSky: Arrived in Skylands inside a shooting star that broke open to reveal her when Bash investigated it.
* EmeraldPower: Jade Flashwing
* FeatherFlechettes: One of her attacks is to launch a salvo of crystalline feathers from her wings, in all directions (save forward, which is what her primary attack is for).
* FrickinLaserBeams: Her primary ChargedAttack is a laser blast. Her Soul Gem ability is a large crystal that rotates laser beams around in a circle.
* GemstoneAssault: Her primary attack is to fire crystal shards. And although you don't encounter them often, Flashwing is also the only Skylander who can destroy crystal blocks without needing to use explosives.
* HealThyself: The "Healing Crystals" upgrade, along Flashwing's Super Shards path, allows Flashwing to recover her HP by standing near the crystal shards she's fired into walls.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Representing the Earth element. She's also the only dragon Skylander debuting in Giants.
* PowerCrystal
* SpinAttack: Her Shimmering Spin attack. It can also be upgraded into a DeflectorSpin.

!! Fright Rider

[[quoteright:187:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frightriderfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Fear the spear!"''

Fright Rider and his steed, Fright the ostrich, were once champion jousters. But one day a jealous competitor cursed the elf and sent him to the Underworld. Although Fright was normally rather timid, it ate a bag of "skele-oats" and turned itself into a skeleton in order to rescue its friend.

* BeastOfBattle / HorseOfADifferentColor: Fright Rider fights from atop his trusty steed - Fright the (now-undead) ostrich.
* CowardlyLion: Fright
* DemBones: Fright
* PropheticNames: Fright used to feel fright over almost everything and is now a skeleton, which are associated with fright. Rider is, well, [[CaptainObvious a rider]].
* RescuedFromTheUnderworld: Fright reportedly ate a bag of "skele-oats" so it could travel to the Underworld and rescue him.
* ShoutOut: To ''VideoGame/{{Joust}}'', most likely.

!! Hot Dog

[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hotdogfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"See Spot burn!"''

-> Notable variants: Molten Hot Dog

Hot Dog was a stray fire pup that befriended a squad of Skylanders while on a mission, who were so impressed with how he helped out that they made him part of the team.

* BeeBeeGun: One of his alternate powers turns him into a [[TheSimpsons dog with bees in his mouth so when he barks he shoots bees at you.]]
* DevelopersForesight: In Giants, one of the hats is a bone hat that usually goes through a Skylander's head or hair. But when Hot Dog wears it, he holds it in his mouth.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: His Soul Gem power is "Ding Dong Ditch", complete with illustration of a paper bag on fire. (If you're unaware of the classic prank by that name, it involves ringing someone's doorbell and running away, leaving behind a flaming bag of dog poop on their doorstep.)
* HeroesLoveDogs
* HeroicDog
* MagmaMan: Or would that be magma mutt?
* TeamPet

!! Jet-Vac

[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jetvacfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Hawk and awe!"''

-> Notable variants: [=LightCore=] Jet-Vac, Legendary Jet-Vac, Legendary Hurricane Jet-Vac

Jet-Vac was a daring flying ace from the land of Windham. Like all Sky Barons, he received a set of magical wings when he was young, but when Windham was attacked he gave them up to a young mother so she and her children could escape. Eon was moved by this story enough to seek Jet-Vac out and give him a vacuum device to replace his lost wings.

* AcePilot: Well, he flies himself instead of needing a plane, but close enough.
* BirdPeople
* BlowYouAway: His vaccuum cannon also fires bullets of compressed air.
* ButtMonkey: Courtesy of Eruptor, he spends the whole [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEwyp4XGBP4 "Just Like Swap-Force" trailer]] in pain.
* ChargedAttack: One of Jet-Vac's upgrades enables him to fire a super shot every time he defeats an enemy by vaccuuming it up.
* DoABarrelRoll / EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: If you take Jet-Vac down the Vac-Packeteer upgrade path, one of the attacks you can purchase is the "Flying Corkscrew", which allows him to ''literally'' barrel roll while hovering in the air.
* JetPack: Allows Jet-Vac to move quickly, but takes time to recharge. It can be recharged more quickly by using his vaccuum cannon.
* MisterSeahorse: Although he's a male, Jet-Vac has laid an egg in every promotional trailer he appears in.
** BringMyBrownPants: Although it may not be an egg, but he probably poops himself.
* OneHitPolykill: His "Piercing Winds" upgrade allows his shots to hit multiple enemies.
* PowerGlows: [=LightCore=] Jet-Vac's vaccuum cannon glows, as does a central jewel on his armor.
* WeaponsThatSuck: His primary weapon is a vaccuum cannon.

!! Pop Fizz

[[quoteright:206:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/popfizzfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"The motion of the potion!"''

-> Notable variants: Punch Pop Fizz, [=LightCore=] Pop Fizz, Love Potion Pop Fizz, Birthday Bash Big Bubble Pop Fizz

Nobody knows Pop Fizz's history. Due to his extensive messing about with magic potions, we don't even know what he originally looked like. Due to his craziness, nobody wants to risk working with him. He tried to overcome this by making a charm potion, but it instead turns him into a (more) crazed berserker - or maybe that's what he was going for in the first place?

* AlchemyIsMagic

* HulkingOut: He becomes an even more hyperactive beast when he drinks his potions. His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him become even bigger.

* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: Claimed to be 'Success', stated when completing a lock puzzle.
* NoMoreForMe: Played with in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUMFF7ekbvw E3 trailer]], where Pop Fizz (and other Skylanders) are talking about how they don't believe the Giants are actually real, only to be thoroughly surprised when the giant Tree Rex shows up behind them.

* AbnormalAmmo: Exploding mushrooms.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Giants]]
The very first Skylanders, who brought down the Arkeyan Empire 10,000 years ago. As a consequence of their victory, however, the Arkeyans' Fist of Arkus malfunctioned and exiled them to Earth; much like Kaos would banish the modern Skylanders thousands of years later.

!!Tropes applying to all Giants:
%%* MightyGlacier: Compared to the normal-sized Skylanders.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: Obviously. They're about two-and-a-half to three times as large as your average Skylander.
* PowerGlows: All of the Giants' toys light up when placed on the portal, though their special powers are not related to the glowing.
* SuperStrength: Except for Ninjini (who uses MindOverMatter instead); these massive beings can throw boulders, smash holes trough weakened parts of the ground, break walls that normally require the bomb powerup, just walk through breakables and small enemies, and various other "Feats of Strength" like moving entire floating islands, hurling stacks of logs, and pushing massive columns over.

!! Bouncer

[[quoteright:332:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bouncerfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Deal with the wheel!"''

-> Notable variants: Legendary Bouncer

Formerly a popular Roboto Ball player, Bouncer retired from the sport after too many hits to the head and was hired as mining security. He discovered there a number of his old fans, enslaved by the Arkeyans. For the sake of his fans, Bouncer made his goal to take down the Arkeyan King.

-> ''"It's crush hour!"''

-> Notable variants: Granite Crusher

Crusher ''loves'' crushing rocks. Loves it. He's studied minerals all his life, and is always searching for some new kind of stone to smash. So when he heard the Arkeyans were taking rocks to melt down into war machines, he took it rather personally.
* DetachmentCombat: His Rock Slide ability causes him to break apart into damaging rocks, which then pull back and reform.
* DishingOutDirt
* DropTheHammer
* FelonyMisdemeanor: His reason for becoming the first earth skylander is because he learned that the Arkeyans were melting rocks into weapons. [[SeriousBusiness Crushing them is HIS job!]]

* {{Golem}}
* NamedWeapons: The hammer is also named Crusher.
* TakenForGranite: Has an EyeBeam that does this to foes in front of him.

!! Eye-Brawl

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eyebrawlfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"I've got my eye on you!"''

It all started with a staring contest between a headless giant and a floating eyeball. Since the giant had no eyes and the eyeball couldn't blink, their rivalry soon escalated into all-out war. Eventually, though, they realized that their fighting was getting them nowhere, and that they would be much more powerful if they worked together.

* DetachmentCombat: Since Eye-Brawl is technically two creatures, they can split up. The eye, which is the part the player controls, flies around and shoots EyeBeams, while the body remains prone. With upgrades, the firing speed of the eye-lasers can be improved, and the body can be made to slowly follow the eye, flailing its fists.
* EyeBeams: When separated, the eye portion can fire these. Upgrades make him fire them faster and harder.
* FacelessEye
* FridgeLogic: In-Universe - War escalated because the two parts of his body couldn't logically beat the other in a staring contest - One's a headless giant, the other's an eyelid-less floating eyeball.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: When he's not using eye-lasers or summoning minions, all of Eye-Brawl's attacks are delivered through his fists. His melee upgrades simply add knuckle-dusters to his fists: the first level being simple knuckle-dusters as above, the second adding rather imposing-looking blades.
* PungeonMaster: Eye-Brawl loves him some optical puns.
* SeriousBusiness: An all out war broke out because a headless giant and a floating eyeball couldn't beat each other at a staring contest.
* TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether: The flying eyeball is Dive-Clops's twin brother.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Seems to be trying for a [[{{Uberwald}} Transylvanian/Eastern European]] accent, but can come across as German or even Hispanic at times.

!! Hot Head

[[quoteright:338:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hotheadfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Hey! I'm on FIRE!"''

Finding magical oil was a great discovery in the Skylands - until a certain ''someone'' decided to cool off by diving into the black pool. This caused the island to explode and oil wouldn't be rediscovered for another 2,000 years. But for his reckless action, Hot Head was infused with the oil's power, granting him limitless fuel for his fires.
* CoolBike: His Soul Gem power allows him to turn into one!
* FireBreathingWeapon
** VideoGameFlamethrowersSuck: Perhaps they do, but not Hot-head's! This trope is very much averted: his Flamefire burst can be upgraded to fire a constant damaging stream.

Ninjini was a renowned magical ninja, even more ancient than the Arkeyans. That is, until a jealous sorceress sealed her in a magic bottle, intending her to be trapped for eternity.

* DualWielding: Two swords longer then most Skylanders are tall.
* FogFeet
* GenieInABottle: A bottle that she still carries to this day, and can use to attack her enemies with.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: DualWielding Japanese swords and wearing Japanese armor.
* MindOverMatter: Unlike the other Giants, Ninjini doesn't use her PHYSICAL strength during the Feats of Strength, but rather employs ancient Djinni magic to get things done. Possibly intentional: she IS a ninja, after all, more known for graceful and lethal sword-arts rather then sheer brute force.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: We're talking about a ''ninja genie'', here.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Her CatchPhrase.
* SealedBadassInACan: Formerly. The sealing actually made her ''more'' badass as she spent that time training until she was able to break free from her prison.

!! Swarm

[[quoteright:244:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/swarmfigurine11037.jpg]]

-> ''"Bring the sting!"''

Born a prince of insect warriors, Swarm (like the other 9,000 members of the royal family) was never allowed to leave the hive.

%%* BeeAfraid

%%* DualWielding
* GratuitousSpanish: Showed with his rolling Rs and calling himself "Eswarm" when listening to the music player on Flynn's ship.

-> ''"Hail to the whale!"''

Thumpback was once a member of the dreaded pirate crew of the Phantom Tide. But he was never really interested in piracy - he instead liked being on a ship for the fishing.

* GroundPound
* TheLeader: For the Giants.
* RightHandOfDoom

-> ''"Straight to the point!"''

Pop Thorn hails from a race of creatures known as Pufferthorns. Often considered one of the cutest creatures in all of Skylands, they are generally quite timid and puff out sharp spines when scared. It is this ability that long ago led to the unfortunate legacy of being used as combs by giant trolls everywhere, being the sharp spines are perfect for brushing out tangles from their long, matted hair. But not long ago, one Pufferthorn took a stand. Tired of his race being used for nothing more than good grooming, Pop Thorn used his naturally thorny abilities to stand up and fight back against the giant trolls.

He plunged into battle, and soon the Arkeyans were silent once more. Realizing the potential his new gear possessed, Krypt King sought out the Skylanders, and was soon made a member of the Trap Masters.

For his sacrifice in protecting the innocent, Master Eon made him a Skylander.

Wallop was once a promising young apprentice blacksmith among his people, who had used the volcanic lava of Mount Scorch to forge the finest weapons in all of Skylands for generations. However, on the day he was to be taken under the wing of a master smith, a Fire Viper awoke within the mountain and attacked his village. With his twin forging hammers and skills honed pounding metal into shape, Wallop felled the savage beast and drew the attention of the Skylanders.

!! Wildfire
-> ''"Bringing the heat!"''

-> Notable variants: Dark Wildfire

Wildfire was once a young lion of the Fire Claw Clan, about to enter into the Rite of Infernos Ė a test of survival in the treacherous fire plains. However, because he was made of gold, he was treated as an outcast and not allowed to participate. But this didn't stop him. That night, Wildfire secretly followed the path of the other lions, carrying only his fatherís enchanted shield. Soon he found them cornered by a giant flame scorpion. Using the shield, he protected the group from the beastís enormous stinging tail, giving them time to safely escape. And though Wildfire was injured in the fight, his fatherís shield magically changed him Ė magnifying the strength that was already in his heart – making him the mightiest of his clan. Now part of the Trap Team, Wildfire uses his enormous Traptanium-bonded shield to defend any and all who need it.

* ChainsawGood: Being of the Swashbuckler class, he has [[DualWielding two]].
* [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Skyland's Dwarves Are Different]]: His profile describes him as a Dwarf, which is odd since he towers over most other Skylanders and appears to be, if not a full machine, then a very advanced cyborg.
* TrapMaster: Can expend energy that he's collected from fallen foes to summon "Inventions", which are basically a whirling chainsaw deathtrap. With upgrades, they gain the ability to shoot electricity.

* DetachmentCombat: Can remove her head and grow a new one, at which point the first head will attack on its own.
* EyeScream: Her eyes are removable, as shown in her idle animation.
* PunnyName: On "chop" and "hopscotch". The latter part ties into her using it as a method of attack and her element being Undead, in that in some countries it's about a journey through the afterlife.

* FriendlyEnemy: Seems to view Cortex this way at the end of the Thumoin' Wumpa Island level. The feelings probably not mutual.
* GuestFighter: From another Activision-owned series. Unlike Donkey Kong and Bowser, his figure is compatible with all versions of ''Imaginators'', and he plays a major role in the storyline of ''Imaginators'' whereas the former two were just special guests.
* HappyDance: As an IdleAnimation, Crash will do his trademark dance.
* KillerYoYo: In his Sky-Chi attack, he uses it to pull enemies toward him.
* MadBomber: He can throw TNT crates, and combine them with his spin attack to create a whirlwind of explosives.

Also, when he breaks open one of his crates, there's a chance it will include an extra life from one of his games.
** His yo-yo attack is based on the opening cutscene of ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'', where he was seen playing with one. This was also his idle animation in the same game, and the yo-yo made another appearance in ''Crash Nitro Kart''.
** His appearance in this game might be one to the {{crossover}} games ''Crash Purple: Ripto's Rampage'' and ''Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy''.
** Less debatable is the fact that, at the start of the "Thumpin' Wumpa Islands" expansion pack level, Aku Aku directly calls Spyro his friend, meaning these two already met.
* SlideAttack: Another attack introduced in his second game.
* SpinAttack: His signature attack.
* TheUnintelligible: Similar to ''VideoGame/CrashTagTeamRacing'' and beyond. Usually [[ExpositionFairy Aku Aku]] speaks on his behalf, but he does manage to say his name when played as a card in Creation Clash and says "Ta-da!" from time to time.

* MadScientist: One of the most well known in all of gaming.

!! Starcast
-> ''"A shot in the dark!"''

* BizarreSexualDimorphism: His origin story, appearance, mystical power and even his name make it not that much of a stretch for him to be related to Star Strike (listed under Skylanders Debuting In Swap Force). If true, then the females of their species are small, humanoid and lack visible feet, while the males are colossal, four armed hunchbacks.
* {{Hammerspace}}: He visibly summons more throwing stars into his hands once he's thrown his current stock.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous
* {{Ninja}}: One who doesn't make use of more traditional means of misdirection as he can naturally turn invisible.
* NinjaLog: A very strange variation, wherein he does vanish and make his foes target something else, but in this case, the "log" is a living doppelganger of himself that fights back.
* StockNinjaWeaponry: Uses his four arms to throw shurikens.

* DistressedDude: He was captured by Kaos and Count Moneybone at the start of [=SuperChargers=], and the Skylanders had to go save him.
* NeverSayDie: Many discussions of Eon seem to dance around the fact that he died in Kaos' assault, but...
** SealedGoodInACan: At least one tie-in book explains he's this instead.
* OracularHead: At least until ''[=SuperChargers=]''.
* SpiritAdvisor

!! Hugo
Eon's assistant. With Eon indisposed, he's the one who researches the Core of Light, how to fix it, and where to find the parts.

* AscendedExtra: Has a much more major role in ''[=SuperChargers=]'' and will give the player bonus missions to do (and which he will reward them for completing) after his story importance finally diminishes.
* DemotedToExtra: Appears in the introductory scene of ''Giants'' to give the Skylanders their mission, but doesn't come along on the adventure. Similarly, he only appears in the opening cinematics of ''Swap Force'' and ''Trap Team'' to spout a bit of exposition, then vanish.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Odd when compared to the other [=NPCs=], such as Flynn, Cali and some Mabu villagers.
* NerdGlasses

* CatchPhrase: "...Boom!"
* ChickMagnet: Not so much in the games, but in the tie-in comics, it's shown that both Cali and Tessa have feelings for Flynn (not that they'd admit it).
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: For all his bragging and problems, Flynn actually ''could'' be one of the best pilots in all of Skylands, leaping into danger head-on with the Skylanders on many occasions(Provided he's in a gunboat of some kind). He helps you navigate a small fighter through a really tight tunnel system in ''Giants'' and pilots a gunboat to help you take out Anti-aircraft weaponry several times in ''Trap Team''.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Depends on who he's around. He's the wise guy to Cali, and the StraightMan to Tessa.
* GladIThoughtOfIt: It was Cali's idea that Flynn needs a propeller for his air balloon.
* HypocriticalHumor: His opinion of credits:
-> I don't know, the whole thing seems kind of egotistical, to me. I mean, you don't see ''me'' walking around bragging about all the great things I've done.

* SmallNameBigEgo
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: In ''Giants'', Flynn tries to not reveal his identity to the Pirates who hold a grudge against him, but he eventually lets his CatchPhrase slip and they identify him. Cue a mad scramble to get back to their ship.
* ShutUpHannibal: Gets one during Kaos' post defeat rant at the end. Cali approved.
* ThrowTheDogABone: In the end, after trying to impress Cali all game and [[CasanovaWannabe failing]], he finally manages to get her approval by giving Kaos a ShutUpHannibal.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Enchiladas. So much that sharing enchiladas with another individual is an "unbreakable bond".
