Characters / Skylanders Playable Characters

Go To

Tropes applying to all Skylanders:

  • Catchphrase: Not counting Guest Fighters, every single one of them has one that they say right before entering the game.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: 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.
  • Advertisement:
  • Elemental Powers: Each Skylander belongs to one of ten elements: Air, Earth, Water, Fire, Magic, Tech, Life, Undead, Light, and Dark.
  • Elite Army: The Eon's Elite variants are stronger than their regular counterparts.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: 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.
  • Meaningful Name: Most Skylanders' names are puns (Hot Dog, Tree Rex) or relate to what they do (Bouncer, Crusher).
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Among all Skylanders, Gill Grunt, Stealth Elf, Eruptor, and Trigger Happy are the only Skylanders to have appeared in every game so far since their debut. From Giants onwards, Jet-Vac and Pop Fizz join them.
  • Advertisement:
  • Suddenly Voiced: Most of the original Skylanders didn't talk at all in the first game. From the second game onward, the Skylanders that either just made grunts, animal sounds, or other sounds are now just as capable of talking as the others.

Bash

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bashfigurineii11037.jpg
"Rock and roll!"
Notable variants: Legendary Bash
Voiced by: Keith Silverstein (Giants onwards)

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: Birthday Bash, an alter ego in Lost Islands uses a large cluster of helium balloons to finally get airborne.
  • Berserk Button: Bash really doesn't like having the fact he can't fly mentioned.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: It's got a spiked ball at its end, and as a Charged Attack, it packs THE strongest wallop per hit of any (non-Giant) Skylander.
  • Carry a Big Stick: 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".
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Officially a dragon, but has a lot of saurian characteristics. Lampshaded with his Soul Gem upgrade, which gives him a triceratops helmet.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: One of his powers has him making giant fists made of stone. He can also smack these around, making them like a projectile.
  • Handicapped Badass: Wingless dragon who still kicks ass despite it.
  • Rolling Attack: One of his main attacks is to roll into enemies.
  • Spectacular Spinning: With a Rolling Attack and a Spin Attack.
  • Spin Attack: He can swing his tail to attack in a short distance around him.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: His first upgrade allows him to deflect shots with his Tail Swipe.

Boomer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/boomerfigurine11037.jpg
"Bring the boom!"
Notable variants: Elite Boomer, Lucky Boomer
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Joey Camen (Giants onwards)

Like most trolls, Boomer loves to 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!


  • All Trolls Are Different: 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.
  • Artificial Limbs: Word of God claims his hands and feet are cybernetic, due to an accident.
  • Cartoon Bomb: His troll bombs are styled like this.
  • Charged Attack: The final upgrade of his "Clobber Troll" path is the ability to charge up his ground slam for an extra-damage slam.
  • Delayed Explosion: 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.
  • Ground Punch: His secondary attack is slamming his fists on the ground to create a shockwave.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was originally in the troll army, but defected.
  • Mad Bomber: 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 Up to Eleven as far as his species goes.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: 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.
  • Shockwave Stomp: The result of his slamming attack. It can be upgraded to stun on his "Clobber Troll" upgrade path.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Has access to both sticks of dynamite and troll bombs.
  • Violation of Common Sense: In the book Machine of Doom, he tries to drown out Gill Grunt's singing by using sticks of dynamite as earplugs....
  • Your Answer to Everything: Stealth Elf points out that Boomer's is "blow it up" in one commercial.

Camo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/camofigurine11037.jpg
"Fruit punch!"
Voiced by: André Sogliuzzo (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Almighty Janitor: He doubles as Eon's personal gardener.
  • Breath Weapon: He spits life energy that take the shape of balls of lights.
  • Dashing Hispanic: The portrayal of his voice, as of Giants.
  • Deployable Cover: 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.
  • Edible Ammunition: 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.
  • Green Thumb: He has the ability to make plants grow explosively fast.
  • Heal Thyself: Get three of his Breath Weapon projectiles to circle around him at once and his HP will regenerate for a short time.
  • Hybrid Monster: Half dragon, half plant.
  • Orbiting Particle Shield: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, holding the attack button down allows up to three of his Breath Weapon projectiles to orbit around him for protection.
  • Plant Person: A plant-dragon hybrid, shown by his green coloration and leaf tail.
  • The Prankster: A rather notorious one, in-universe. Likes to use his plant powers for mayhem. In fact, a prank he pulled on Master Eon got him recruited.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chopchopfigurine11037.jpg
"Slice and dice!"
Notable variants: Legendary Chop Chop, Elite Chop Chop
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Steve Blum (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Audible Sharpness: His sword makes a noticeable metallic sound every time it's swung; to say nothing of when it actually hits something.
  • Attack Reflector: An innate ability of his shield.
  • BFS: Should you take his "Vampiric Warrior" path, his sword eventually becomes as large as himself.
  • Cool Sword: It's even explicitly stated to be indestructible.
  • Counter-Attack: On his "Undead Defender" path, he gains the ability to absorb damage with his shield, then release it by using his shield bash.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: All Undead Skylanders are this by default, but it goes double for Chop Chop due to him being an Arkeyan creation.
  • Dual Wielding: His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him replace his shield with a second Cool Sword.
  • Dem Bones: One that's at least partially artificial.
  • Friend to All Children: 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.
  • The Leader: For the Undead element.
  • Life Drain: One of his upgrades gives him a chance of recovering health when attacking enemies with his sword.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: 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.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: To the Arkeyans.
  • Shield Bash: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cynderfigurine11037.jpg
"Volts and Lightning!"
Voiced by: Tobie LaSalandra (Giants onwards), Erica Lindbeck (Imaginators cutscenes)

Kidnapped as an egg by the evil dragon Malefor, Cynder was raised in the ways of darkness until Spyro rescued her. (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.


  • Action Girl: Like all female Skylanders.
  • The Atoner: Just like her Legend of Spyro counterpart.
  • Back from the Dead: The Mabu kid Quigly asks if this happened to her in Spyro's Adventure.
  • The Bus Came Back: Cynder returns to the spotlight in Imaginators as a storyline NPC in a level pack story.
  • Broad Strokes: Cynder's bio essentially states that some version of The Legend of Spyro trilogy happened in this continuity. Word of God 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.
  • Casting a Shadow: She can perform a shadow dash.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Par for the course when it comes to Cynder.
  • A Day in the Limelight: She's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Cynder Confronts the Weather Wizard".
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: 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".
  • Heel–Face Turn: Just like her The Legend of Spyro counterpart.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: 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.
  • Put on a Bus: She does not get a repose for Trap Team.
  • Scale Color Dissonance/Purple Is the New Black: In the first two The Legend of Spyro 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.
  • Shock and Awe: Cynder's primary attack is her lightning breath.
  • Spread Shot: Her lightning breath can hit multiple enemies across a wide area, even without upgrades.

Dino-Rang

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dinorangfigurine11037.jpg
"Come rang or shine!"
Notable variants: Elite Dino-Rang
Voiced by: Keith Silverstein (Giants onwards)

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.


Double Trouble

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doubletroublefigurine11037.jpg
"Boom shock-a-laka!"
Notable variants: Royal Double Trouble
Voiced by: Alex Ness

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.


  • Action Bomb: His copies. They also draw attacks away from him.
  • Chain Lightning: His Wow Pow upgrade allows his Eldritch Beam to chain to different foes.
  • Cool Mask: A huge tribal mask.
  • Clone Degeneration: His clones are much smaller than him. And explosive.
  • Expendable Clone: They serve as his secondary attack, even.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: 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.
  • Me's a Crowd: he can create many doubles of himself, though they don't have the same abilities as him and are mostly mobile explosives.
  • Shout-Out: In Giants, he sings the "level complete" music from Super Mario Bros. after defeating a large slew of Mooks.
  • Witch Doctor: His design inspiration, shown by his tribal mask, feathers, and staff.

Drill Sergeant

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drillseargantfigurine11037.jpg
"Licensed to drill!"
Voiced by: Thomas Bromhead

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.


Drobot

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drobotfigurine11037.jpg
"Blink and destroy!"
Notable variants: LightCore Drobot
Voiced by: Alex Ness

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


  • Energy Weapon: His primary attack is to shoot rapidfire, long-range energy beams from his eyes. The "Master Blaster" path of upgrades also adds wing blasters.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Drobot built his suit of Powered Armor himself using some lost technology he came across and his backstory implies he tinkered around a good bit beforehand.
  • Pinball Projectile: Drobot's Bladegears bounce off of walls, even without upgrades. They can also be upgraded into exploding bladegears.
  • Player-Guided Missile: Drobot's "Wow Pow" ability is a large remote-controlled Bladegear.
  • Power Glows: The orange orb on LightCore Drobot's pack lights up.
  • Powered Armor: 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.
  • Shout-Out: To Shoot 'em Up games. His "Hover Mode" upgrade even allows him to fly while facing in one direction, just like in a Vertical Scrolling Shooter!
  • Spread Shot: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eruptorfigurine11037.jpg
"Born to burn!"
Notable variants: LightCore Eruptor, Volcanic Eruptor, Elite Eruptor
Voiced by: Keythe Farley (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Balloon Belly: When he uses his Wow Pow move Lava Barf, his belly bulges.
  • Cowardly Lion: In direct contrast to his usual depiction as possessing a Hair-Trigger Temper, 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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Eruptor Meets the Nightmare King".
  • The Ditz: 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. Someone talking over the opening would be so annoying!"
  • Fingerless Hands: 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.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: His most famous trait is his literally explosive temper. And yet he's considered calm and sensible by the standards of his people.

Flameslinger

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flameslingerfigurine11037.jpg
"Let the flames begin!"
Voiced by: Keith Szarabajka (Giants onwards)

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.


Ghost Roaster

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghostroasterfigurine11037.jpg
"No chain, no gain!"
Notable variants: Elite Ghost Roaster
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), John Kassir (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Alien Lunch: He's a foodie, just not of anything we'd call edible.
  • Big Eater: He ate an entire ghost town.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of the Crypt Keeper, from Tales from the Crypt. This is much more apparent via voice work in Giants.
  • Cursed with Awesome: His punishment is what gave him his primary weapon in the first place.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: The reason he, Voodood and Boomer began working for Spellslamzer in "Secret Agent Secrets".
  • Epic Flail: The chain he got stuck with as punishment doubles as a very good flail.
  • Evil Laugh: His laugh is quite maniacal.
  • High Collar of Doom: One that splits down the back and looks vaguely like horns.
  • Meaningful Rename: Ghost Roaster was once named Olav, but decided to give himself a new name after being transformed into what he is now.
  • Our Ghouls Are Creepier: Essentially the "Mythic Ghouls" type.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Stormblade's Blue in the comic arc "Secret Agent Secrets".
  • Skull for a Head: With spikes no less.
  • Token Evil Teammate: 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. Also, Ghost Roaster had to promise not to turn Hex into a hamburger.

Gill Grunt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gillgruntfigurine11037.jpg
'"Fear the fish!"
Notable variants: Elite Gill Grunt
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Darin De Paul (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Abnormal Ammo: His Water Weaver upgrade path lets him shoot exploding starfish at enemies.
  • Anchors Away: After acquiring his Soul Gem upgrade, hold the attack button to ready a large ship anchor instead of the usual harpoons.
  • Art Evolution: In his offical artwork for series two on, his jaw seems to be less prominent, and his eyes appear rounder.
  • Bottomless Magazines: 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. This also applies when he stands in any amount of water large enough for him to get both feet in.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Gill Grunt and the Curse of the Fish Master".
  • Dreadful Musician: Gillmen are known for their singing voices, but not in a good way.
  • Fantastic Recruitment Drive: Known for recruiting other undersea Skylanders, like Punk Shock or Echo.
  • Fish People: A Gillman, who are very much fish.
  • Harpoon Gun: His primary weapon. Can be upgraded with Spread Shot and Charged Attack capabilities.
  • Jet Pack: A water-pressure jetpack!
  • Knockback: His power-hose attack inflicts relatively little damage, but is explicitly noted to push enemies backwards when it hits.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: His Wow Pow upgrade changes the anchor into a Spread Shot of tridents for a three-way attack.
  • Shock and Awe: Deep Dive Gill Grunt's trident has this power when upgraded enough to the correct path.
  • Spread Shot: One path of upgrades enables him to fire a triple spread of harpoons. His Wow Pow upgrade allows him to do this with his Charged Attack.
  • Visual Pun: His series 4 version literally rides the wave.
  • Vocal Evolution: In Spyro's Adventure he had a voice akin to Trigger Happy's but with a slight French accent and a little less laughter. In Giants and onwards, he got a deeper, less crazy sounding voice.

Hex

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hexfigurine11037.jpg
"Fear the dark!"
Notable variants: LightCore Hex
Voiced by: Courtenay Taylor

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.


Ignitor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ignitorfigurine11037.jpg
"Slash and burn!"
Notable variants: Legendary Ignitor
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Dwight Schultz (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Animated Armor: Granted, being a turned into a sentient flame is not pleasant, but he Took a Level in Badass thanks to it.
  • Cursed with Awesome: He's cursed to remain bound to his armor for all eternity as a fire spirit. The powers he received as a result of this transformation definitely soften the blow, however.
  • Flaming Sword: His main weapon.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: More like a Flaming Knight in Shining Armor...
  • Meaningful Rename: His name used to be Ignatius.
  • Oddly Shaped Sword: In its base form it looks almost like a "fast forward" symbol, when upgraded to Scorching Blade it looks more like a halberd than a sword, and when upgraded to Inferno Blade it takes on a flame-like appearance.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: "Thou has been vanquished!" Notably, the use of "thou" is correct — it's the modern English that isn't (it should be "have", not "has").

Lightning Rod

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lightningrodfigurine11037.jpg
"One strike and you're out!"
Voiced by: Alex Ness

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.


  • Badass Beard: Just look at it, sheer awesomness.
  • Big Eater: 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?
  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Lightning Rod Faces the Cyclops Queen".
  • Expy: Bearded lightning-bolt-slinger? Talk about Zeus.
  • Flying on a Cloud: His entire lower half is cloud.
  • Fog Feet: 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".
  • No Indoor Voice: He never drops below a drawn out, echoing shout.
  • Shock and Awe: Throws lightning bolts.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: All the time.

Prism Break

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prismbreakfigurine11037.jpg
"The beam is supreme!"
Notable variants: LightCore Prism Break
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Peter Lurie (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Emerald Power: Literally; an upgrade that enhances his attack power also turns his crystals green.
  • Energy Weapon: Unlike Drobot's, however, they are at least instantaneous beams of light energy, though they do have a more limited range.
  • Gemstone Assault: He can summon gemstones to attack.
  • Groin Attack: 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... *puts on shades* ...in the stones.
  • Hand Blast: If you can call those hands.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Best seen on his portrait.
  • Power Crystal: Those gemstones do a lot of damage.
  • Power Glows: LightCore Prism Break's hand crystals glow.
  • Sealed Badass in a Can: Thanks to the cave-in, he became this until freed.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slambamfigurine11037.jpg
"Armed and dangerous!"
Notable variants: Legendary Slam Bam, Elite Slam Bam
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore (Giants onwards)

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.


Sonic Boom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sonicboomfigurine11037.jpg
"Full scream ahead!"
Voiced by: Lani Minella (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Action Girl: She fits the bill.
  • Action Mom: She's even able to get an assist from her chicks.
  • Area of Effect: Her Roar attack does damage in an area in front of her. Even more so when supplemented by her "Siren Griffin" path upgrades and/or her Soul Gem ability.
  • Cursed with Awesome: 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.
  • Fusion Dance: Sonic Boom's Wow Pow ability allows her to combine her hatchlings into one "Super Baby" with a much stronger bite.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her primary attack is a blast of sonic energy.
  • One-Hit-Point Wonder: Sonic Boom's hatchlings vanish in a puff of baby feathers the moment they take any damage, and the player must toss them again.
  • Our Gryphons Are Different: 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.
  • Splash Damage: Her "Echolocation" upgrade causes her sonic blasts to send out secondary shockwaves upon impact, which inflict additional damage.
  • Spread Shot: 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.
  • Weaponized Offspring: Her hatchlings can fight alongside her.

Spyro

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spyrofigurine11037.jpg
"All fired up!"
Notable variants: Dark Spyro, Legendary Spyro, Elite Spyro
Voiced by: Josh Keaton (Spyro's Adventure to SuperChargers), Matthew Mercer (Imaginators)

A legendary purple dragon from a faraway land, Spyro is famous for his many adventures — perhaps you've heard 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.


See: Spyro the Dragon (The Character)

Stealth Elf

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stealthelffigurine11037.jpg
"Silent, but deadly!"
Notable variants: Legendary Stealth Elf, Dark Ninja Stealth Elf, Elite Stealth Elf, Dark Super Shot Stealth Elf
Voiced by: Audrey Wasilewski (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Absolute Cleavage: Her top exposes her cleavage. Best seen on her series 2 promo images.
  • Action Girl
  • Bare Your Midriff: 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.
  • Breakout Character: Just look at the size of her bio compared to any other character on this page.
  • Depending on the Writer: Some of what she says and does in the games and commercials tend to give her behavior traits. The books and comics, meanwhile, tends to make her out more as being Comically Serious with No Social Skills — Except for the book of Elements, which shows her more as Brilliant, but Lazy (uses her duplicates to get out of doing anything she doesn't want to do herself).
  • Dual Wielding: A pair of daggers.
  • Flechette Storm: 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 version of this trope. Gets completely straight with her final 3DS upgrade called Thorn Storm, which still only doubles as Death of a Thousand Cuts 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.
  • Fragile Speedster: 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.
    • Super Speed: the "Speed" stat icon is literally an image of her running.
  • Gratuitous Ninja: Especially as Ninja Stealth Elf, which gives her a traditional ninja outfit.
  • Mundane Utility: 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.
    • Ninja Log: Her special attack is to vanish and leave a decoy in her place. After upgrading, they're dummies that fight back.
  • No Social Skills: Known for being impatient, temperamental, and a bit too direct. Her mini-counterpart, Whisper Elf, is likewise able to make situations completely awkward by speaking her mind too much (when she even speaks at all).

Whisper Elf

Super Shot Stealth Elf

  • Abnormal Ammo: 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.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Not in the console games, but the SuperChargers Racing supplemental game, where her jumpsuit is zipped down to expose her cleavage. Also shows up in some images.
  • Ace Pilot: She flies a helicopter.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her jumpsuit looks to match her body pretty snuggly.
  • Fragile Speedster: The Stealth Stinger isn't very strong and powerful with its shots, but can rapid-fire on enemies and has a high acceleration rate.
  • Gatling Good: To replace her knives, she instead uses a Gatling gun that fires daggers at opponents.
  • More Dakka: Both she and the Stealth Stinger can rapid-fire attacks at enemies.
  • Spectacular Spinning: Her Arboreal Acrobatics ability has been replaced with the ability to spin around her Gatling gun.
  • Stealth Expert: Except now she leaves her Gatling gun behind while doing so. The Stealth Stinger is also the only vehicle capable of doing this.
  • The Medic: 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.
  • The Turret Master: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stumpsmashfigurine11037.jpg

Originally a magical tree, Stump Smash awoke from a long nap to find that trolls had cut down the entire forest — including himself. He's still upset over the incident, and has vowed to protect Skylands from such incidents happening again.


  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon".
  • Drop the Hammer: He has hammers (or "Stumpfists", as the game calls them) instead of hands. He even uses the phrase as one of his battle cries.
  • Healing Factor: His Soul Gem ability, "Waterlogged", gives him this when floating in water (or when in a Water Power Zone in Swap Force and beyond).
  • Plant Person: He's an ent.
  • Spectacular Spinning: One of his "Stump Crusher Combos" has him spinning around with both Stumpfists extended.
  • When Trees Attack: Used to be a magical tree until his branches were cut off. Enraged, he uprooted himself and used his newly-acquired mallet hands to pummel the trolls responsible. He's vowed to defend Skylands from evil ever since.

Sunburn

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sunburnfigurine11037.jpg
"Roast 'n' toast!"
Voiced by: Troy Baker (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Breath Weapon: His Flamethrower Breath, which sends out a sustained stream of fire.
  • Collision Damage: Sunburn's Phoenix Dash; the "Phoenix Grand Blaze" upgrade makes Sunburn's body ignite in flames after using his fire breath long enough, allowing him to damage nearby enemies by touch.
  • Hybrid Monster: He's a dragon/phoenix hybrid, the only one known to exist.

Terrafin

"It's feedin' time!"
Notable variants: Elite Terrafin
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Joey Camen (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Noodle Incident: In one trailer for Spyro's Adventure, he mentions that Kaos owes him five dollars. Exactly what for is never elaborated on.
  • Shark Man: Comes from a whole race of them, the Dirt Sharks.

Trigger Happy

https://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
Voiced by: Freddie Winston (Spyro's Adventure), Dave Wittenberg (Giants onwards)

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


  • A-Team Firing: As stated, he's a bit infamous for his lack of aiming....
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: Trigger Happy uses "gold guns" that 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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He's the main focus character in the tie-in novel "Trigger Happy Targets the Evil Kaos".
  • Gatling Good: His normal tertiary ability is a mounted Gatling gun.
  • Glass Cannon: Offensively is one of the most powerful Skylanders, but also has some of the lowest maximum health.
  • The Gunslinger: Not only does he use guns, his backstory is pretty much what you'd expect from a western gunslinger.
  • Guns Akimbo: But of course.
  • Human Cannonball: Double Dare Trigger Happy's tertiary attack is launching himself out of a cannon.
  • Laughing Mad: He never seems to stop laughing and giggling.
  • Law of Inverse Recoil: His Golden Yamato Blast attack shoves him halfway across the screen.
  • More Dakka: Dude's called "Trigger Happy"; what do you think?
  • Overly Long Tongue: One trailer even shows it to be prehensile.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: While not of a traditional design, his gold guns have visible rotary chambers.
  • Riding the Bomb: Big Bang Trigger Happy's Wow Pow does this.
  • Trigger Happy: It is his name, after all.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: His strongest Charged Attack, 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

"Axe first, questions later!"
Notable variants: Elite Voodood
Voiced by: André Sogliuzzo

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.


  • An Axe to Grind: His main weapon is his Axe Reaver, which he can use like a grappling hook.
  • Booby Trap: He has a magical tripwire for a power. He can also upgrade this to lay down multiple tripwires.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He's an orc wearing a skull, and yet a good guy.

"Brace for the mace!"
Voiced by: Chris Parson (Giants onwards)

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.


Whirlwind

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whirlwindfigurine11037.jpg
"Twists of fury!"
Notable variants: Polar Whirlwind, Elite Whirlwind
Voiced by: Salli Saffioti (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Mood-Swinger: 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.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: 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 The Illuminator.
  • Roaring Rampage of Rescue: When the trolls started hunting the two races she's a hybrid of, she went on one of these that made her The Dreaded to evildoers.
  • Shock and Awe: Whirlwind's secondary attack is a "tempest cloud" that electrocutes nearby enemies.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: One of her strongest attacks involves creating a rainbow black hole to attack her enemies.
  • Winged Unicorn: 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wreckingballfigurine11037.jpg
"Wreck 'n' roll!"
Voiced by: Ryan Cooper

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.


  • All Animals Are Dogs: He acts a lot like a dog even though he's a grub worm.
  • Badass Adorable: Just look at him. His high-pitched voice adds to the adorable factor.
  • Big Eater: He eats everything, even inedible objects like treasure.
  • Eaten Alive: Wrecking Ball inflicts this on smaller enemies when fully upgraded.
  • Extreme Omnivore: If upgraded, he can eat treasure and his Soul Gem lets him eat enemies (even some bigger than he is).
  • Gasshole: Burps a lot. It's even an attack.
  • Gratuitous Disco Sequence: Wrecking Ball's Wow Pow allows him to roll inside a disco ball, with appropriate backing music.
  • Overly Long Tongue: And with upgrades, can get even longer.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Even though he's an oversized grub, he's extremely cute.
  • Rolling Attack: His secondary attack let's him roll around pinball-style.
  • Team Pet: Along with Hot Dog. In fact, Eon made him a Skylander because Wrecking Ball reminded Eon of his own pet. Also, talking to Quigley in the Ruins with him prompts Quigley to say "Hi boy. You hungry?" as if talking to a pet.

Zap

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zapfigurine11037.jpg
"Ride the lightning!"
Voiced by: Jeff Bergman

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.


  • Breath Weapon: He spits balls of electricity as his primary attack.
  • Healing Factor: His Soul Gem ability, "Love for the Sea", gives him this when in water (or when in a Water Power Zone in Swap Force and beyond).
  • Raised by Wolves: In this case, he was raised by electric eels instead of his own dragonkind.
  • Shock and Awe: 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.
  • Verbal Tic: As of Giants, his voice constantly sounds like someone gargling and talking at the same time.

Zook

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zookfigurine11037.jpg
"Locked and loaded!"
Notable variants: Elite Zook
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore (Giants onwards)

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.


  • Bamboo Technology: Literally, as he has a bamboo carved bazooka.
  • BFG: His bazooka, which can fire shots that explode into shrapnel or launch pineapples like mortar shells.
  • Glory Seeker: His primary motivation for joining the Skylanders.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: 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 as a place to sit.
  • Welcome to the Caribbean, Mon!: Starting in Giants, he has a thick Jamaican accent.

Chill

Notable variants: LightCore Chill, Legendary Chill
Voiced by: Julie Nathanson

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.


  • Combat Pragmatist: She's a noble knight, but at least one source has said she's not above fighting dirty.
  • An Ice Person: Like Slam Bam, she's more affiliated to Ice than to Water.

Flashwing

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flashwingfigurine11037.jpg
"Blinded by the light!"
Notable variants: Jade Flashwing, LightCore Flashwing
Voiced by: Tara Strong

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.


  • Aliens Among Us: She came to Skylands in a meteorite from places unknown, implying she's actually an alien.
  • Attack Drone: 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.
  • The Bait: 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.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: 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.
  • Came from the Sky: Arrived in Skylands inside a shooting star that broke open to reveal her when Bash investigated it.
  • Emerald Power: Jade Flashwing
  • Energy Weapon: Her primary Charged Attack is a laser blast. Her Soul Gem ability is a large crystal that rotates laser beams around in a circle.
  • Feather Flechettes: 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).
  • Gemstone Assault: 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.
  • Heal Thyself: 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.
  • Power Crystal
  • Power Glows: LightCore Flashwing's wings light up.
  • Spin Attack: Her Shimmering Spin attack. It can also be upgraded into a Deflector Spin.

Fright Rider

"Fear the spear!"
Voiced by: Yuri Lowenthal

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.


  • Beast of Battle: Fright Rider fights from atop his trusty steed — Fright the (now-undead) ostrich.
  • Dem Bones: Fright is a skeletal ostrich.
  • Prophetic Names: Fright used to feel fright over almost everything and is now a skeleton, which are associated with fright. Rider is, well, a rider.
  • Rescued from the Underworld: Fright reportedly ate a bag of "skele-oats" so it could travel to the Underworld and rescue him.

Jet-Vac

"Hawk and awe!"
Notable variants: LightCore Jet-Vac, Legendary Jet-Vac, Legendary Hurricane Jet-Vac
Voiced by: Greg Ellis

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.


  • Ace Pilot: Well, he flies himself instead of needing a plane, but close enough. Fully qualifies as a Supercharger, where he even gets his own Ace Custom plane.
  • Blow You Away: His vaccuum cannon also fires bullets of compressed air.
  • Butt-Monkey: Courtesy of Eruptor, he spends the whole "Just Like Swap-Force" trailer in pain.
  • Charged Attack: One of Jet-Vac's upgrades enables him to fire a super shot every time he defeats an enemy by vaccuuming it up.
  • Do a Barrel Roll: 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.
  • Jet Pack: Allows Jet-Vac to move quickly, but takes time to recharge. It can be recharged more quickly by using his vaccuum cannon.
  • Mister Seahorse: Although he's a male, Jet-Vac has laid an egg in every promotional trailer he appears in.
  • One-Hit Polykill: His "Piercing Winds" upgrade allows his shots to hit multiple enemies.
  • Power Glows: LightCore Jet-Vac's vaccuum cannon glows, as does a central jewel on his armor.
  • Weapons That Suck: His primary weapon is a vaccuum cannon.

Pop Fizz

"The motion of the potion!"
Notable variants: Punch Pop Fizz, LightCore Pop Fizz, Love Potion Pop Fizz, Birthday Bash Big Bubble Pop Fizz
Voiced by: Bobcat Goldthwait

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?


  • Hulking Out: He becomes an even more hyperactive beast when he drinks his potions. His Series 3 Wow Pow lets him become even bigger.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Downplayed; Pop Fizz's personality doesn't change in his transformation, but he does seem to be more excited.
  • Mad Scientist: From his bio: "It's widely known that he is a little crazy, his experiments are reckless, and the accidents they cause are too numerous to measure."
  • "Metaphor" Is My Middle Name: Claimed to be 'Success', stated when completing a lock puzzle.
  • No More for Me: Played with in the 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 giants Tree Rex and Bouncer show up behind them.
    Pop Fizz: Okay, I'm quittin' the soda!
  • Punny Name: Pop for "soda pop" and Fizz for fizzy soda drinks, combined to make a play on "pop quiz".
  • Power Glows: LightCore Pop Fizz's potion glows.
  • Stance System: 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.
  • Sweet Tooth: Pop Fizz really loves soda.

Shroomboom

Notable variants: LightCore Shroomboom
Voiced by: Matthew Moy

Shroomboom was unfortunate enough to be grown in Kaos' garden, him and his friends bred to be pizza toppings. Not content with this fate, he made himself a slingshot and organized an escape.


  • Death from Above: His Paramushroom spores are fired into the air and drop down on enemies. Taken Up to Eleven in his Paramushroom Promotion path, where he can fire out three of these per shot with no max limit on screen.
  • Pinball Projectile: His Wow Pow "High Spore" utilizes this, himself being the projectile. Shroomboom makes mushroom pinball bumpers and bounces off them.
  • Power Glows: LightCore Shroomboom's slingshot glows.
  • Status Effects: His Paramushroom spores can be upgraded to give foes a "mushroomized" status, which acts like poison.

    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:

  • Our Giants Are Bigger: Obviously. They're about two-and-a-half to three times as large as your average Skylander.
  • Power Glows: All of the Giants' toys light up when placed on the portal, though their special powers are not related to the glowing.
  • Super Strength: Except for Ninjini (who uses Mind over Matter 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

"Deal with the wheel!"
Notable variants: Legendary Bouncer
Voiced by: Bumper Robinson

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.


  • Eye Beams: But he can't keep them sustained for long, as he overheats. Upgrades increase the time one can spend shooting eye-lasers.
  • Death from Above: He can fire rockets into the air that land on targeted areas.
  • Finger Firearms: His rapid-fire Finger Guns. Upgrades make them more awesome.
  • Rocket Punch: His Soul Gem Power allows him to fire out homing fists at enemies.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His bottom half is a single wheel, so he definitely counts

Crusher

"It's crush hour!"
Notable variants: Granite Crusher
Voiced by: Kevin Sorbo

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.


  • Detachment Combat: His Rock Slide ability causes him to break apart into damaging rocks, which then pull back and reform.

Eye-Brawl

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eyebrawlfigurine11037.jpg
"I've got my eye on you!"
Voiced by: Travis Willingham

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. And thus, Eye-Brawl was born!


  • Detachment Combat: Since Eye-Brawl is technically two creatures, they can split up. The eye, which is the part the player controls, flies around and shoots Eye Beams, 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.
  • Eye Beams: When separated, the eye portion can fire these. Upgrades make him fire them faster and harder.
  • The Family That Slays Together: The flying eyeball is Dive-Clops's twin brother.
  • Fridge Logic: In-Universe. The two parts of his body couldn't logically beat each other in a staring contest — one's a headless giant, the other's an eyelid-less floating eyeball.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: 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.
  • Pungeon Master: Eye-Brawl loves him some optical puns.
  • Serious Business: An all out war broke out because a headless giant and a floating eyeball couldn't beat each other at a staring contest.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Seems to be trying for a Transylvanian/Eastern European accent, but can come across as German or even Hispanic at times.

Hot Head

"Hey, I'm on fire!"
Voiced by: Patrick Seitz

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.


  • Cool Bike: His Soul Gem power, Hot Rod, allows him to turn into one.

Ninjini

"Any last wishes?"
Notable variants: Scarlet Ninjini
Voiced by: Laura Bailey

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. But after years upon years of determination and training, Ninjini eventually broke free of her prison, and she still carries the bottle as a reminder of the challenge she has beaten.


  • Genie in a Bottle: A bottle that she still carries to this day, and can use to attack her enemies with.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Dual Wielding Japanese swords and wearing Japanese armor.
  • Mind over Matter: 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.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: We're talking about a ninja genie, here.
  • Sealed Badass in a Can: Formerly. The sealing actually made her more badass as she spent that time training until she was able to break free from her prison.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female Giant.

Swarm

"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. But some magical quirk led him to grow much larger than the other bees so that he could no longer fit with his people, leading him to step out into the world where he joined the fight against the Arkeyans.

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. His passion eventually got him pulled overboard when he tried to catch a Leviathan Cloud Crab (lucky for him, as he wasn't on the Phantom Tide when it and its crew were later banished to the Chest of Exile), but he went on to become one of the first Skylanders.

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. Soon after, Master Eon made Pop Thorn a Skylander. And to this day, no trolls dare to comb their hair.

  • Shamu Fu: He uses a swordfish as an actual sword, and a hammerhead shark as an actual hammer.

  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Skull-themed helmet, boots and gloves. Her SuperCharger variant puts even greater emphasis on this.
  • Stock Sound Effects: Upon being summoned or launching into her dash attack, a referee's whistle can be heard. This is appropriate, as a whistle signals the start of a round in roller derby.
  • The Tease: Downplayed. She appears to have a rather flirty personality, what with her winking at the player, encouraging them to, "Check me out!", occasional love-themed puns, and use of cartoon heart particles, but she lacks almost all other traits. Kaos would likely accuse her of being this, though.

Being injured, unable to call for assistance, and surrounded by enemies causes him to realize how much of a jerk he was to his team, and he considered surrendering his Legendary status to earn it back someday by proving that he can be part of a team. Luckily, Bouncer encouraged Blades to keep it after seeing how much the dragon has changed and officially became part of the Skylander team in the process.
  • It's All About Me: In I Am Legendary, he was incredibly arrogant and reckless after becoming the youngest Skylander-in training to ever achieve Legendary status. Blades believed he could take on threats by himself without help to prove himself to be the best Legendary Skylander ever.

Voiced by: Dave B. Mitchell

A small dinosaur with big ambitions and even bigger ideas, Chopper built himself a super Gyro-Dino-Exo-Suit ahead of his villages annual competitive hunt. His suit launched him far into the lead, but as he was on the verge of victory, the nearby volcano erupted and flooded the whole village with lava. Thinking quickly, Chopper used his suit to airlift everyone to safety, even rescuing their prized idol in the process. For his quick thinking bravery, the young dinosaur was made a Skylander.

Notable variants: King Cobra Cadabra
Voiced by: Sunil Malhortra

Cobra Cadabra was an assistant to The Great Mabuni, a traveling magician that performed all over Skylands, but he wanted more than anything to become a magician himself. Unfortunately, the guild of Mysteriously Mad Magic Masters of Mystery, who for centuries taught all of the greatest magicians, would not permit it. And so Mabuni decided to teach the cobra himself, even through it was forbidden. They studied everything together, from vanishing acts to snake charming. But when the guild discovered this, they sent a team of magic rabbit enforcers to punish them both. Although the beastly hares were the most powerful of their kind in Skylands, Cobra Cadabra remained brave. Playing an enchanted tune on his flute, he used what he had learned to cast a spell over the rabbits and lead them away. Upon hearing this, this guild was impressed by such a display of skill, and accepted the snake charmer as a member. Soon after, Cobra Cadabra was made a member of another group – the Skylanders.

Notable variants: Legendary Déjà Vu
Voiced by: Betsy Foldes

On a remote island in Skylands, Déjà Vu tirelessly worked on a machine that would make the perfect three-minute egg in half the time. After pouring over countless magic tomes, and even consulting the lost plans used to create the legendary Tower of Time, she finally completed construction of the huge machine. Unfortunately, a gang of evil giant sea slugs, searching for a way to acquire super speed, learned of her machine and set about to take it at all costs. Slow, but well armed, the massive slugs bore down on the island. But rather than allow her work be used for evil, Déjà Vu quickly jumped into action and set the clock’s hands to thirteen – causing a time overload. Caught up in the blast, she was given an amazing power over time, which she then used to stop the evil slugs in their tracks and spin them home. Now as a Skylander, Déjà Vu uses her incredible powers to turn back the clock on evil.


  • Me's a Crowd: Can create holograms of herself from the past that explode, or she can activate the ability again to switch places with them.

Echo

"Lets make some noise!"
Voiced by: Kimberly Brooks

Echo lived in an undersea kingdom that was built around an enormous oyster shell, and at its center was the Pearl of Wisdom. Every day water dragons from all around the kingdom would come to ask questions of the Pearl. Because this was a sacred ritual, anyone living near the Pearl were required to speak only in whispers. This was challenging for Echo, who lived directly next to it. She had a gift – and it was loud – and often got her in trouble. One day, a gang of sea horses known as the Aqua Jocks rode into town and claimed the Pearl for themselves. They cast an unbreakable bubble around it and began dragging it away with enormous chains. The nearby water dragons, who had been quiet for so long, were unable to even call for help. Then Echo appeared – and with her loudest sonar blast, she shattered the bubble and blew the sea horses out of the kingdom! Her heroic actions caught the attention of Gill Grunt, who recruited her as a Skylander.

Fist Bump had long been the sleeping protector of the Bubbling Bamboo Forest, but awoke from a long hibernation when a horde of nasty purple Greebles arrived with gigantic rock-smashing machines. Intent on building a new base, their machines wreaked havoc – chewing up the land and spitting out billowing clouds of smoke into the enchanted air. Seeing this, Fist Bump was furious. Using his enormous stone fists, he hammered the ground with all his strength, creating a massive earthquake that sent huge shockwaves towards the Greeble camp. This reduced the machines to mere scrap and sent the Greebles running off in a panic. The act of bravery caught the attention of Terrafin, who brought Fist Bump to meet Master Eon.

One day, while exploring an underwater graveyard of shipwrecks, he came across a massive Ice Viking ship that was still intact. Suddenly, a huge crew of Ice Vikings burst out from inside and began leading an attack on the unarmed dolphin residents.

High Five is one of the most skilled sky racers of all the dragonflies. But as the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies, he was not allowed to enter any of the racing tournaments that took place each year because of his age. Instead, he was forced to watch from the sidelines as his four older brothers competed for the coveted Trophy of Sparx, which legend has said holds magical properties. One year, during the biggest racing event of the season, High Five learned that the Troll Racing Team had stolen the valuable trophy and were going to use the race to cover their escape. He quickly took action, jumping into the race and using his amazing flying skills to weave and dodge his way to the front of the pack, where he caught up to the trolls and brought them down. For his actions, High Five was given the Trophy of Sparx. Even more importantly, he was made a Skylander, where he now helps protect Skylands from any evildoers.

Trail Blazer was always hot tempered, especially when he saw anything as being unfair. One day, he came across another unicorn that was trapped in a net. But it wasn’t just any unicorn. It was the mythical Unocorn – a magical creature with a Churro Horn that sprinkled enchanted cinnamon throughout Skylands. Trail Blazer freed it at once. Soon after, the Dark Wizards who had set the trap returned, and were very angry to find their dastardly deed had been thwarted. But Trail Blazer was much more fired up – for it turned out the spicy cinnamon from the Churro Horn had somehow rubbed off on him and mixed with his elemental fire. So he was literally set ablaze with fury! He then ran fiery circles around the wizards, forcing them to flee and never return. After realizing his newfound fury could be used to fight evil everywhere, Trail Blazer sought out the Skylanders, who immediately welcomed him as a member.


  • Cool Horse: Good lord is he ever. A steampunk flame-wreathed unicorn who both hits like and resembles a steam train.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: His Stampede attack, at least for anything that survives the billowing flames that precede him.
  • Hellish Horse: Visually, he's got the look of one: mane and tail made of fire, blood red skin and glowing yellow eyes. He definitely doesn't have the personality, though, apart from being quick to anger.
  • Hot-Blooded: Quite literally. So hot, in fact, that his flames are actually sustained by his burning hatred of injustice.
  • Playing with Fire: Shoots fireballs from his smokestack horn, in addition to gushing fire out of it during his Stampede move.
  • Took a Third Option: While all Skylanders are capable of operating vehicles in Superchargers without exception, Trail Blazer has a unique problem as he completely lacks hands or even proper arms to steer with. He gets around this by driving with his mouth.

As an orphan from the Dizzying Dunes, Tread Head always dreamed of racing. After a summer spent scavenging for parts, he managed to build himself a motorcycle that would enable him to compete in the local circuit. The other racers mocked the crude looking craftsmanship of his ride, but Tread Head built for performance, not style; when the race started, he quickly surged into a commanding lead. Upon passing into a canyon, however, he found himself facing a roadblock of Goblin warriors. Thinking quickly, he used his bike to kick up so much dirt that the Goblins had no choice but to flee, letting the other racers pass through unscathed. While Tread Head sacrificed victory on the track, he won an even greater prize: the respect of Master Eon and membership among the Skylanders.

An elite team of Skylanders who specialize in the use of Traptanium to defeat and imprison villains, they were originally formed to defeat the Doom Raiders.

Now that their former inmates are loose (thanks to Kaos), the Trap Masters are once again on the hunt to bring down the Doom Raiders.
  • Badass Crew: They were assembled and unleashed against the Doom Raiders when the evil organization was at the height of its former power, having explicitly brought Skylands to its knees. The poor villainous schmucks never stood a chance.

Blastermind was once the "hide and sheep" champion of the Sardonic Mountains, where he and his friends played regularly. But when he was about to set a new Skylands record, the ground collapsed and Blastermind fell into a deep, mysterious cavern filled with shimmering crystals. As his friends circled the hole up top, they suddenly found themselves face to face with a dangerous Ham Dragon, who had felt the rumble of the collapse. Down below, Blastermind felt helpless. But fortunately, the cavern was filled with Psionic Power Crystals once used by the Ancients to amplify their thoughts. When the crystals "heard" Blastermind’s worried thoughts about saving his friends, they found him worthy – and bestowed upon him awesome psionic powers, which he used to get out of the hole and mentally blast the circling Ham Dragon. Soon after, Blastermind joined the Skylanders as part of the Trap Team, using his new Traptanium Psionic Helmet to fight evil.

  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Downplayed as he's a "Crocagator".
  • Never Smile At A Crocagator: If you're a bad guy, that is.

Thunderbolt

"A storm is coming!"
Voiced by: Dave Fennoy

Epically strong and heroically competitive, Thunderbolt grew up on legendary Mount Cloudpierce. Every year, his people held a contest to determine who would wield the Storm Sword – a legendary blade with the power to change the seasons in Skylands. To Thunderbolt, this would be a great honor. But on the day he won the contest and was about to be presented with the sword, a Frost Mage snatched it and plunged all of Skylands into a wintery deep-freeze. Undaunted, Thunderbolt bravely took chase. Riding twin bolts of chained lightning, he overtook the mage, reclaimed the sword, and restored balance to the weather systems in Skylands. For his heroic actions, Thunderbolt was made a member of the Trap Team, and he now uses his Traptanium Storm Sword to strike evil at every turn!

Tuff Luck

"Deal with it!"
Voiced by: Marcella Lentz-Pope

For many years, Tuff Luck and her tribe guarded the Fortunata Springs – the source of all good luck in Skylands. Though hidden in the Random Canyons, which move without warning to cover the hidden entrance to the magical waters, minions of Kaos located the springs and flew in sponge-tankers to drain every drop of the lucky liquid. Fortunately, Tuff Luck was patrolling the area and immediately jumped into action when she saw what was happening. Between her awesome skill and unbeatable good luck, she single-handedly drove off the minions. She then drank from the magical waters, as was custom for her tribe. Sensing a greater calling, Tuff Luck decided to leave her tribe to join the Trap Team, where she could do even more to help protect Skylands. Armed with her Traptanium Warblades, she always beats the odds – and evil – at every turn!

Wallop

"Hammer it home!"
Voiced by: John DiMaggio

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. Now, with a matched pair of Traptanium hammers, he beats down any evil that dares rise to threaten Skylands.


  • Animal Motifs: His armor is very evocative of a Hercules beetle.
  • Badass Bystander: Originally a simple apprentice blacksmith, until his village was attacked.
  • Drop the Hammer: Wields two hammers, both made of Traptanium.
  • Dual Wielding: Has a pair of Traptanium hammers.
  • The Lancer: He takes up the leader role in Trap Team's opening cutscene and the "Trapping Kaos" trailer. This implies he and Snap Shot alternate team roles.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Comes in two flavors, a simple but effective single target hammer lob, and the room clearing When Hammers Collide. Both have limited homing capabilities.

Wildfire

Notable variants: Dark Wildfire
Voiced by: Keythe Farley

Wildfire was once a young lion of the Fire Claw Clan, about to enter into the Rite of Infernos – 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 father’s enchanted shield. Soon he found them cornered by a giant flame scorpion. Using the shield, he protected the group from the beast’s enormous stinging tail, giving them time to safely escape. And though Wildfire was injured in the fight, his father’s shield magically changed him – 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.


  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Literally AND figuratively. Literally with his Heat Shield ability, which lets him block all incoming damage from the front, and figuratively with his astronomically high Defense stat.
  • Shield Bash: A devastatingly effective one at that, since his shield is a car-sized slab of Traptanium.

    The SuperChargers 
  • Applied Phlebotinum: The Rift Engines which power their signature vehicles appear to be a more mechanically focused application of the technology, for lack of a better word, behind the Portals. They can open what are essentially wormholes on command in order to traverse vast distances almost instantly in perfect safety, and can also be stored and recalled from these rifts as required.
  • Badass Driver: While any Skylander can drive vehicles effectively, only SuperChargers can get the most out of their rides by, well, SuperCharging them.

Astroblast

"Ready, set, glow!"
Notable variants: Legendary Astroblast
Voiced by: Neal McDonough

While on a secret mission in troll territory, Astroblast crash landed on a remote island where he stumbled upon an ancient relic not seen in thousands of years - a legendary Rift Engine. These magical machines were believed to have the power to travel through the portals between Skylands and other worlds! Shortly after the discovery, an army of trolls appeared on a nearby canyon ridge and quickly charged toward Astroblast. Knowing that the Rift Engine would be very dangerous in the wrong hands, he pulled out his pulse laser and prepared to defend the relic against the incoming horde. After an epic shootout, the trolls fled in defeat. When Astroblast then brought the relic back to his ship, the Sun Runner, it surged with power and a hologram of Master Eon appeared. Eon thanked him for saving the Rift Engine and beckoned him to return it to the Skylander Academy. Astroblast accepted the invitation and was made a Skylander shortly thereafter.


  • The Ace: He's supremely self-assured, though his ego takes the form of an understated but utterly unshakable confidence and a bemused surprise if anyone expresses amazement at his success. This is in direct contrast to the usual brash and bombastic braggarts around him, namely Flynn.
  • Combat Medic: If your companion happens to be of the Life Element, at any rate. Astroblast apparently emits pure sunlight that scorches foes and nourishes plants.
  • Death from Above: If Astroblast fires his gun into the air, get under something fast; he's calling a meteor strike directly on your head.
  • Energy Being: Well, if he isn't, he certainly glows like one. And gives off intense, damaging sunlight like one.
  • Energy Weapon: His Weapon of Choice is a rather robust blaster pistol that, with upgrades gains a Charged Attack and a burst fire function. Another, much larger beam cannon is mounted on the Sun Runner.
  • Expy: From his deservedly cocky attitude, to his startlingly powerful Ray Gun, to his pridefully boasting of his starship's achievements, he's a weird, glowy Han Solo.
  • The Gunslinger: Astroblast's combat style is built entirely around shooting foes at range, or knocking them back and stunning them so he can resume shooting them.
  • Hitscan: Literally. The secondary power of the Sun Runner is to sweep an area with its scanners and blast any enemies locked for minor damage. Not that useful on its own, but remembering locked targets suffer bonus damage from its main cannon...

Bowser is the king of the Koopas and believes himself to be the supreme, unquestioned ruler of a kingdom far from Skylands. A hot-tempered and spiky-shelled warrior, he was transported to Skylands by traveling through a rift that had been created by Kaos' terrible Sky Eater. The Skylanders sent out a distress call across all the dimensions to call for reinforcements, and for reasons known only to Bowser himself, he has decided to join this epic battle against Kaos and the Darkness in his Clown Cruiser as the newest and most lethal of all the SuperChargers!


  • Drop the Hammer: Unique to his Skylander appearance.
  • Enemy Mine: He's usually a villain, but has been known to team up with heroes against rival villains.

Believe it or not, Dive-Clops is actually the twin brother of Eye-Brawl. When he was young, his bat-wings were blasted off by pirates while flying over the Swirling Sea, causing him to plunge into the abyss below. After rolling on the bottom for several days, he was discovered by an underwater civilization of Jelly Dwarves. They were instantly fascinated by the bizarre looking eyeball and took him back to their Corral Castle, where they built him a magnificent dive suit that would allow him explore the depths of the sea. But everything changed when Dive-Clops decided to venture to the mysterious Whirlpool of Destiny deep within the ocean. As he got closer, he suddenly felt pulled by its immense power, and reemerged to discover that thousands of years had passed! Now with his destiny before him as a member of the Skylanders, Dive-Clops lets the minions of Kaos know that there are many dangers of the deep!

Donkey Kong is a fun-loving powerhouse gifted with great strength and incredible agility. His insatiable curiosity and easy-going attitude led him to explore the rift that appeared in his native jungle and brought him to exciting new adventures in this world called Skylands.

Notable variants: Frightful Fiesta
Voiced by: Carlos Alazraqui

Despite being Undead, Fiesta had always been the life of the party. He was once the head member of a popular mariachi band in the personal court of Count Moneybone, who all undead citizens respected immensely. In his spare time, Fiesta and his bandmates played music for all of the new arrivals that entered the Underworld. However, a day came when the new arrivals were actually several Skylanders, who had come on a mission to stop Count Moneybone from unleashing a robot army on all of Skylands. Fiesta then realized that he, like so many others, had been fooled by the evil Count into thinking he was kind and generous – not the vengeful monster he truly was. Unbeknownst to the Skylanders, Fiesta and his bandmates helped to distract the robot army so they could infiltrate Moneybone’s mansion and put a stop to him. Even though the Skylanders were unaware, this act of bravery and defiance did catch the attention of Master Eon, who recruited him at once.

"Protect and surge!"
Voiced by: Josh Duhamel

High Volt was once the commander of a special security force that was in charge of patrolling the border between the known regions of Skylands and the mysterious uncharted region known as the Outlands. From atop the Shockspire Tower, their security headquarters, High Volt vigilantly monitored any strange activity beyond the border, knowing that Kaos and his minions were always up to no good. Over the years, he had defended Skylands against countless Greeble attacks, Troll uprisings, and even a few evil food chains that were attempting to expand. But on a recent patrol mission into the Outlands, High Volt discovered a heavily guarded construction site, where Kaos' minions appeared to be building a colossal Doom Station of Ultimate Destruction! Realizing at once that all of Skylands was in danger, he raced to the Skylanders Academy to inform Master Eon and joined the Skylanders in their fight to stop it!


  • Blade on a Stick: Though it's really more of an Electrical Plug on a Stick.
  • Deflector Shield: The "Doomproof Force Field" mounted on the Shield Striker.
  • Javelin Thrower: His primary ranged attack. With an upgrade or two, he can remain tethered to it with electricity and start levitating around the area.
  • Lightning Gun: The primary armament of the Shield Striker, High Volt's signature Cool Car.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: That huge riot shield isn't just for show, High Volt has the highest defense of any SuperCharger.
  • Police Brutality: Given his previous career in law enforcement, this is his entire fighting style.
  • Powerup Magnet: The other function of the "Doomproof Force Field". Notably, it's the only vehicle in the game with the ability to do this.
  • Shock and Awe: Has a wide array of powers that zap and stun targets. Handy for a cop.

"Dark and dangerous!"
Voiced by: Nika Futterman

Nightfall was a Dreadwalker from Fogshadow Tower, a mysterious fortress in the middle of the Poison Sea. While most Dreadwalkers stayed within the noxious cloud they called home, Nightfall preferred to dive into the black abyss and hunt the dark monsters that threatened her people. One day, as she was exploring a deep cavern in her submarine, the Sea Shadow, Nightfall came upon an enormous object that pulsed with a strange energy. It was gigantic, and before she could comprehend what she was looking at, it hatched! Out came a creature 100 times larger than anything she had ever seen! She fired the engines and raced back to warn her people. Just as the last citizens boarded an evacuation ship, the colossal head of the Leviathan broke the surface of the water and let out a terrible roar! Without hesitation, Nightfall rushed towards the monster, blasting it with everything she had while the others made their escape. This act of heroism caught the attention of Master Eon, and the rest is Skylander history!


  • Alluring Anglerfish: The Sea Shadow takes on an appearance similar to this with its SuperCharged mods.
  • Gas Mask, Longcoat: Her ensemble has this look, though she's wearing a greatcoat if you want to get pedantic.
  • Gravity Sucks: The Sea Shadow features a black hole projector, ominously called the "Abyss Cannon".
  • Prehensile Hair: She actually uses hers to walk around, and it certainly seems to be the source of her Whip Lash attacks.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Stormblade's Red in the comic arc "Secret Agent Secrets".
  • Shoulders of Doom: Understated, but she wears a greatcoat in the style of a 19th-century officer's uniform, complete with epaulets.

Notable variants: Steel Plated Smash Hit
Voiced by: Rob Paulsen

Smash Hit came from a long line of Warsupials - a rare species widely renowned for their skills in combat. But in more peaceful times, his people were responsible for locating and demolishing any remaining artifacts from the Arkeyan Empire that were deemed too dangerous to leave standing. Smash Hit liked his job because it allowed him to do what he loved most - break things! He was so skillful with his wrecking ball that he could single-handedly dismantle an entire Arkeyan Conquertron in under an hour and still have time for a snack. When Master Eon noticed his skill, he enlisted the talented Warsupial into a new wrecking crew he was forming to take on Kaos - the SuperChargers!


  • Car Fu: Unlike many other land vehicles, which depend on ranged weaponry, Thump Truck actually has a ramming attack.
  • Chain Pain: The boulder on his flail can be detached to fight like this.
  • Epic Flail: He fights with a ball and chain almost as large as he is.
  • Mighty Glacier: The Thump Truck has one of the lowest acceleration stats in the game, but brings the pain like almost nothing else. A critical hit from its secondary attack deals 1920 damage, which will destroy pretty much anything that gets hit by it.
  • Motor Mouth: When talking to Buzz, he just talks a mile a minute, jumping from topic to topic.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He was part of a crew in charge of wrecking the remains of the Arkeyan Army. Yet was by far the best at it.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's tiny, literally the same size as the head of his Epic Flail and almost the exact same size as Fryno. However, he hits like a ton of bricks, and Thump Truck is a nearly unstoppable juggernaut.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: All he's got to cover his remarkably well-toned torso is a bright orange work harness.

Spitfire was on pace to become the fastest driver in the Super Skylands Racing Circuit. With his lightning quick reflexes and nerves of steel, this tech enhanced flame spirit was absolutely unbeatable. But during the championship event at Skywinder Canyon, he was illegally bumped off course by a goblin racer and sent flying into the canyon wall in a fiery explosion! Most thought that this would put an end his racing career. But three weeks later, he was back on the track, more fired up than ever to claim the title. Unfortunately, it was then that all of Skylands fell under the rule of Kaos in his Sky Eating machine, and the racing came to an end. That’s when Spitfire was approached by Master Eon with an offer that could get him back behind the wheel as the new leader of an elite driving team — the Skylander SuperChargers!


Splat

"The art of war!"
Notable variants: Power Blue Splat
Voiced by: Brittany Snow

Splat grew up in a typical faun village, which was perfectly manicured and orderly. Every day in school, she and her classmates would recite the same poems, play the same music, and paint the same picture – which was always a portrait of their great ancestor, Fluty Hoofdancer. But this didn’t suit Splat. The only art she wanted to learn was the art of war! After school, she would sneak off to the river and practice her own free form fighting technique against Chompies and other creatures that were causing trouble. When the elder fauns learned of this, they were outraged. But soon thereafter, a band of Drow attacked the village to steal their valuable art, and while the other fauns cowered in fear, Splat stood her ground. Unleashing her self-taught fighting style, she defended her village and sent the Drow running. Now as a member of the Skylanders, Splat makes quite the impression wherever she goes!


  • Art Attacker: Her weapon is a paintbrush staff that is an effective melee weapon, but can also create paint constructs to attack.
  • Creative Sterility: Her home village suffered badly from this, and she didn't like it one bit.
  • Fauns and Satyrs
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Unlike Big Bubble Pop Fizz, this is averted, as she slides her goggles on while driving, most likely to keep out dust and wind on land and air and to allow for vision while underwater.

From the moment she left the nest, Stormblade had always pushed the boundaries, seeking to travel further than anyone had ever gone. At a young age, she made the bold leap off of her home island and plummeted through the deep blue sky in an attempt to find the bottom of Skylands – only to find no such bottom existed. This did not fulfill her curiosity, nor did it sway her belief there was something else beyond the limits of her world. Soon she built a custom ship, the Sky Slicer, and raced to the furthest reaches of Skylands in search of its end – but no end could be found. She wanted answers, and so she came to the one person that could help her – Master Eon. The Portal Master instantly saw the unquenchable thirst for exploration that resided in Stormblade, and asked her to join the Skylanders on a very special mission that would take her through the uncharted rifts between worlds!


  • Knife Nut: Uses throwing knives that look like a cross between kunai knives and feathers. Her wings are lined with them.

Thrillipede served in the Millipede Military in the outer regions of Skylands. As the top pilot in his unit, Thrillipede was responsible for single-handedly blasting over 300 Greeble warships out of the sky! When the Great Greeble War came to an end, he returned to his hometown of Flutter Bay as a celebrated hero. He was the talk of the town and everyone wanted to shake the many hands of the famous young pilot. News of his heroics eventually made their way to Captain Flynn at the Skylander Academy, who set out to determine if the stories were true. In a series of friendly challenges, the two pilots raced, soared through obstacles, and performed incredible stunts in front of a cheering Flutter Bay crowd. In each event, Thrillipede stood victorious, and was asked to join the Skylanders shortly after. Of course, Flynn later admitted that he “let him win” so that Thrillipede wouldn’t be embarrassed in front of his hometown.


  • Animal Motifs: The Buzz Wing, in its basic form, is most definitely styled on a dragonfly, though with other upgrade sets, it also can be made to resemble a bee, a butterfly, or a flying beetle.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: The Buzz Wing is explicitly described as a venerable war machine that Thrillipede had pulled from a museum to help fight against Kaos once again.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears a supremely stylish leather bomber jacket, to go with his Old Flying Ace persona.
  • Old Soldier: An Ace Pilot, daredevil and decorated veteran of the Great Greeble War with over 300 victories to his name, and is also one of Buzz's oldest friends. He's more or less a millipede version of Chuck Yeager with a penchant for grenades.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: His primary attack is throwing cocoon-shaped grenades that can be upgraded to release swarms of dragonflies that slow enemies and his secondary attack can be upgraded to throw sticky grenades that can be stuck to enemies or put on the ground.

"Fight and flight!"
Notable variants: Egg Bomber Air Strike
Voiced by: Charlie Schlatter

Before he began training Brawlers, Air Strike trained birds – especially the rare Blue Zephyr Falcons. They were once one of Skylands’ most endangered species, but Air Strike taught them how to defend themselves from predators... and not fly into windows. Birds would come from all over Skylands to learn his proven techniques. But despite their new defensive skills, the Blue Zephyr Falcons continued to be hunted by a band of evil trolls, who liked to use their eggs in blue-bacon omelets. So it was time for Air Strike to strike back! He journeyed to the peak of the Zephyr Mountain and single-handedly took down the trolls, rescuing the stolen eggs. After returning them to their mother, one of the eggs hatched, revealing a very energetic Falcon that would not leave his side. Air Strike named him “Birdie” – and together, they now use their skills to train Skylanders, despite Master Eon’s crippling fear of falcons.


Ambush

"Weed 'em and reap!"
Voiced by: JB Blanc

There were many mysterious things in the Mystical Bamboo Forest, but none more so than Ambush. The forest was considered to be one of Skylands’ greatest natural wonders, and no outsider, good or bad, was ever permitted to trespass. But that didn’t stop Kaos’ mother! After deciding that the ancient trees would make an exquisite display in her Royal Courtyard, she commanded her army of chainsaw-wielding trolls to chop down the entire forest. This angered Ambush, the mystical tree-knight, who saw the atrocity and swore revenge! Wielding his mythic sword, he fought off the trolls and forced Kaos’ mother into hiding. When Master Eon heard the story, he knew that the mysterious sword master would make the ideal Sensei, and promised to “go green” himself if Ambush would join the Skylander team. Ambush now trains other Knights - and those who are not environmentally conscious cower in fear!


Aurora

Notable variants: Solar Flare Aurora
Voiced by: Britt Baron

Aurora is the niece of Master Eon. For years, he tried to keep her identity a secret so that she would remain safe from harm. But as she grew older, Aurora wanted nothing more than to become a Skylander, but Eon would not permit it. So without telling him, she wore a disguise and studied swordplay and combat arts under the name "Boss Blades McSlashinator." Soon, everyone was talking about this new mysterious hero and her amazing abilities. Even Master Eon was notably impressed, but when he learned the skilled fighter was none other than his own niece, he once again refused her entry into the Skylanders team. However, before she could protest, Eon smiled and told her it was because he was immediately promoting her to his Sensei program, where she would train the Swashbuckler Class under her true name and identity. Although he did later admit that "Boss Blades McSlashinator" sounded pretty cool.


  • Ambiguously Human: Like her uncle.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Before being recruited into the Senseis, she studied the art of combat under the name "Boss Blades McSlashinator".
  • Bait-and-Switch: Even after proofing her, Eon refused to make her a Skylander, but only because he was making her a Sensei.
  • Dual Wielding: Uses a pair of zig-zagging swords.

Barbella was the best fitness trainer in all of Skylands. Not only did she possess otherworldly strength, she was also a firm believer that a healthy diet and exercise led to true happiness. With such a positive message to spread, Barbella decided to open her own fitness center called “Flex-a-lot”, where she hoped to instill good eating and workout habits with all of her patrons. But one day, the gelatinous villain known as The Gulper destroyed her gym, and it took all of Barbella’s strength to keep it from collapsing while everyone fled to safety. It was then that Barbella realized that bad guys were more hazardous to your health than anything else, so she began to train in the ways of the Sentinel, where she quickly became one of the greatest masters in the world!


  • Brawn Hilda: Her weapon is a stone barbell, need we say more?
  • Double Weapon: Wields a barbell with a stone block at each end.
  • Punny Name: On "barbell" and "bella", the Italian word for "beautiful".
  • Super Strength: If her choice of weapons wasn't a giveaway, the fact she was able to hold up a collapsing building should be a clue to how strong she is.

Voiced by: Sara Cravens

Boom Bloom was created in the laboratory of a mad scientist! After using his mutation goo to change deadwood into evil creatures, Dr. Krankcase began experimenting with live plants! But it had a much different effect. Instead of becoming subservient villains, the mutated plants instantly rebelled against their creator and tried to destroy his goo factory. Dr. Krankcase and his henchmen were able to thwart all of these insurgent plants, except for one - Boom Bloom! Her mutation gave her extraordinary Ninja skills and a thorny whip, which she used to unleash a flurry of martial arts moves that forced Dr. Krankcase to flee his own factory and vow never to experiment on plants again. Now as a Sensei of the Ninja class, she uses her incredible abilities to teach new Skylanders how to protect nature... and unleash its fury!


  • Gone Horribly Wrong: She was created by Dr. Krankcase when he started experimenting on plants, but she and the rest of his creations turned against him.

Buckshot

"Quiver with fear!"
Notable variants: Heartbreaker Buckshot

When Buckshot was young, he and his siblings were banished to the Magic Realm of Mysterious Mazes by an evil Spell Punk that wanted to rid Skylands of all Sky-Fauns. Buckshot spent years looking for a way out, but found no way to escape the enchanted labyrinth. Over time, however, the magic of the realm began to grow within him, strengthening his already formidable powers. While his siblings had lost all hope of freedom, Buckshot continued to test the boundaries of the maze, using his mystical bow and arrows to try to penetrate the walls around him. Eventually, Buckshot’s powers became so potent that he even learned how to teleport. With this new ability, he was finally able to open a portal back into Skylands and free his siblings. Now as a Sensei of the Bowslinger class, Buckshot always keeps one eye on the target – and the other on the lookout for the Spell Punk that had banished him!


Chain Reaction

"The saw is law!"'

No matter what he was doing, Chain Reaction always prided himself at being the best at it. Despite his impressive skills, though, the two chainsaw swords he regularly wielded tended to scare most people away. As a result, Chain Reaction was often lonely. But that all changed the day he witnessed a group of young dwarves getting picked on by an evil gang of ninja rats, the dwarves looked at Chain Reaction as their hero, and followed him everywhere he went. While Chain Reaction appreciated the company, he knew that he could not protect them forever, so he decided to teach them all he knew so that they could one day protect themselves. Sometime later, Master Eon heard rumors about dwarves from a small village who had successfully defended themselves against a large army of ninja rats thanks to the teachings of a great master. He knew at once that he needed to find Chain Reaction and make him a Sensei.


  • Badass Beard: His is actually made of chainsaw chains.
  • Chainsaw Good: Being of the Swashbuckler class, he has two.
  • Our 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.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Fully three quarters of him is above his belt.
  • Trap Master: 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.

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

The only thing that ever mattered to Chopscotch was mastering her weapon of choice, the giant axe, while rocking out to her favorite musical idol, Wolfgang. It never bothered her that she was short in stature or that all of the other ghouls in the Underworld laughed at the way she spoke in rhymes as she made up her own lyrics to Wolfgang’s guitar jams. So when Wolfgang joined the villainous Doom Raiders, she was devastated. But instead of letting it destroy her, she chose to put her axe skills to good use, and fought Wolfgang and his Moon Goons when they attempted to curse her entire town during an evil concert. Her willingness to stand up to her long time hero came as a surprise to everyone, and soon all of the villagers were speaking in rhymes in her honor. Soon after, she met Master Eon, who was so impressed at her fighting abilities and positive outlook that he recruited her as a Sensei for the Smasher Class. Now she teaches new Skylanders how to fight... and how to rhyme!


  • An Axe to Grind: Her main weapon is a huge axe.
  • Broken Pedestal: In her backstory, it's mentioned that she idolized Wolfgang and was devastated when he joined the Doom Raiders, but overcame the shock to stop him and his Moon Goons from cursing her town during a concert.
  • Cute Bruiser: She wields an axe that's bigger than she is!
  • Detachment Combat: Can remove her head and grow a new one, at which point the first head will attack on its own.
  • Eye Scream: Her eyes are removable, as shown in her idle animation.
  • Punny Name: 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.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Almost all of her voice lines have some sort of rhyme in them.
  • Skull for a Head: Being of the Undead element, her head is a skull covered in tribal carvings.

Crash Bandicoot

Voiced by: Jess Harnell
Aku Aku voiced by: Greg Eagles

A wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He has come to announce the once-in-two-decades Synchronization Celebration—a time when all of the worlds align perfectly. All the inhabitants of Wumpa Island are having a party and they want to invite the Skylanders. But with Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using his army of Doomlanders, the Skylanders must focus on stopping his evil plans. Never one to shy away from danger, the legendary marsupial Crash Bandicoot leaps through the wormhole to join the Skylanders in the ultimate battle against Kaos!


  • Belly Flop Crushing: A staple of his moveset since Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.
  • Friendly Enemy: Seems to view Cortex this way at the end of the Thumpin' Wumpa Island level. The feeling's probably not mutual.
  • Guest Fighter: 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.
  • Happy Dance: As an Idle Animation, Crash will do his trademark dance.
  • Jetpack: The one from Cortex Strikes Back makes an appearance, which he uses along with the Fruit Bazooka from Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.
  • Killer Yo-Yo: In his Sky-Chi attack, he uses it to pull enemies toward him.
  • Mad Bomber: He can throw TNT crates, and combine them with his spin attack to create a whirlwind of explosives.
  • Mythology Gag: Similar to in his home series, 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 Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, 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 Bandicoot 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.
  • Slide Attack: Another attack introduced in his second game, serving as his secondary ability.
  • Spin Attack: His signature attack and his primary ability as a Skylander, known as the Cyclone Spin.
  • The Unintelligible: Similar to Crash Tag Team Racing and beyond. Usually 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.

Dr. Neo Cortex

Uka Uka voiced by: Alex Fernandez

A wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He comes to announce the once-in-two-decades Synchronization Celebration — it is the time when all the worlds align perfectly. All the inhabitants of Wumpa Island are having a huge party in the Wumpa Islands and want to invite the Skylanders. But Dr. Neo Cortex has created a sinister machine to harness this incredible energy for his own evil purposes, only to watch it go completely haywire. Now Dr. Neo Cortex must partner with Crash Bandicoot to stop the machine before Wumpa Islands are completely shaken apart!


  • Attack Reflector: With enough upgrades, he can summon Uka Uka to reflect projectiles back at enemies.
  • Death from Above: His Sky-Chi attack causes a rain of laser beams to fall in any spot of his choosing.
  • Guest Fighter: Same as Crash.
  • Hover Board: He has access to one. He can ride it around for a short time to attack enemies and get around more quickly, before it explodes and he ends up falling flat on his head.
  • Mad Bomber: He can toss out landmines, like in his boss fight in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.
  • Ray Gun: His primary method of attack is a handheld, Zeerust-inspired ray gun.
  • A Sinister Clue: Wields his Ray Gun in his left hand.
  • Time Master: One upgrade allows him access to a device created by Dr. N. Tropy, which creates a bubble that slows down enemies.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Unlike the other villain Senseis, he's very much still evil. He's just helping for his own purposes.

Ember

"Fan the flames!"
Voiced by: Stephanie Sheh

Ember was raised inside the Dragonfire Dojo, having come from a long line of Fire Sentinels that were skilled in the art of Dual-Blades. It was the dream of her father that Ember would follow their tradition and take over the family training facility, and so she practiced every day. She was naturally gifted, and soon even the greatest Dual-Blade Masters were no match for Ember. When Kaos heard of this, he took over her village and banned martial arts entirely, for fear of an uprising. But Ember fought back, unleashing an impressive barrage of Samurai pyrotechnics that drove the invaders away. Even though her village was free, she knew then that there was greater evil out there that needed to be stopped, and so she joined the Skylanders to train others in the art of the Sentinel Battle Class. One day though, Ember plans to return to her homeland and reopen her family’s school, but not until Skylands is safe once and for all.


  • Fog Feet: She has a mass of fire in place of legs.

Flare Wolf

Voiced by: Cameron Bowen

When Flare Wolf was young, he worked all summer to earn the coveted Fireworks Badge from the Wolf Scouts. In doing so, he had earned the right to light the fireworks in the annual St. Wigglewort's Day celebration - an honor of which Flare Wolf was extremely proud. But on the day of the celebration, a band of evil Ice Ogres attacked his village and took the entire community hostage! The only weapons at his disposal were the town's supply of fireworks they were saving for the evening festivities. One by one, Flare Wolf lit them in the center of the Ogre camp, launching a dazzling display of pyrotechnics that sent the Ogres running. Not only had Flare Wolf saved his village, he had also given its residents the most spectacular fireworks show they had seen in over 100 years! Even Master Eon was impressed, and offered Flare Wolf a position at the Academy as the Official Fireworks Launcher. But after seeing him in action, he quickly realized that Flare Wolf had much more to offer as a Sensei!

King Pen

"Stay frosty!"
Notable variants: Dark King Pen
Voiced by: Rino Romano

King Pen hails from a militaristic unit of penguins who protect the Cloudmelt Glaciers. During an epic battle, King Pen was trapped in an avalanche and had to take refuge in a nearby cave for the remainder of the winter season. During his solitude, he was visited by a mysterious Yeti Master, named Snow Wah, who began teaching him an ancient combat style known as “Flipper-Fu”. King Pen was already a skilled fighter, but the wise teacher helped him to understand the spiritual and philosophical nature of warfare, turning the penguin into an unstoppable force. When he finally emerged from the cave, tales of his newfound abilities spread far and wide. When Master Eon caught wind, he recruited King Pen into his top secret training program, where he quickly rose up the ranks to become the leader of the Skylander Sensei. Years later, King Pen returned to the site of the avalanche to thank his teacher, but no evidence of Snow Wah or the cave was ever found — leaving many to wonder if the Yeti had ever existed at all.


  • An Ice Person: Most of his attacks are covered in ice and freeze enemies.

Mysticat

"The master of mystery!"
Voiced by: Jocelyn Blue

For centuries, Mysticat and the great Sphinxes guarded the entrance to the Enchanted Desert with their famous riddles, which few could solve. Mysticat was a curious creature, and had his own question that even he could not answer. He was puzzled as to why others wanted to enter the Enchanted Desert so badly. So he decided to venture himself to find the answer. But instead of finding answers, he was attacked by wandering gypsies and evil sand raiders that scoured the desert for lost treasure. After fighting them off with his impressive sorcery skills, he returned to the elders and explained what happened. It was then that they revealed the true nature of the desert to him. They told him that what he saw was a vision of his own destiny - and that he was meant to protect all of Skylands, not just the Enchanted Desert. Master Eon was then invited to enter the desert to meet Mysticat to see if their two destinies were intertwined. When Eon emerged the next day, it was clear to him that Mysticat was meant to be one of his best Senseis... and that he would one day shave his beard. But he kept that part to himself.


  • Doppelgänger Attack: Can summon mystic duplicates of himself to distract and bombard opponents with even more beams.
  • Furry Reminder: One of his idle animations is him suddenly getting spooked by something only he can see or hear, much like an actual cat.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: Albeit one with the body of a lion and the torso of a cat person.
  • Punny Name: On "mystical" and "cat".

Pit Boss

"The scales of justice!"
Notable variants: Legendary Pit Boss
Voiced by: John Kassir

Pit Boss was a member of a powerful order of snake philosophers that lived high up in the Great Twisty Mountains. Travelers would come from miles around and make the treacherous climb just to seek out the snakes’ wisdom. Each visitor was permitted to ask one question, but Pit Boss became alarmed when the same question was asked by several different people – how to deal with the growing threat of Kaos! With such a great concern, Pit Boss knew that it was time for action, not words. He left the Order of the Snake in search of this threat, and soon it was clear that Kaos was worse than Pit Boss had imagined. Knowing he could not stop Kaos on his own, Pit Boss joined the Skylanders, and due to his great wisdom and mystical powers, Master Eon enlisted him into the Sensei program as a Sorcerer Master.


  • Scaled Up: His secondary ability transforms him into a giant snake.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: His snake pits serve triple duty as this by pinning his foes in place, along with damaging those trapped and amplifying any further damage he inflicts.

Ro-Bow

"Compute and shoot!"

There is no record of the person who originally built Ro-Bow. By the time his basic systems were fully online, his creator was nowhere to be found. Ro-Bow searched far and wide, but since his programming was incomplete, he was unable to communicate with anyone. Eventually he stumbled upon the remains of an old lair that had been built by Kaos, and discovered a strange device inside the Matter Refactoring Room. Ro-Bow was able to access the device and download a staggering amount of information from it, which gave him the ability to speak, albeit in a slightly strange language, as well as shoot driller arrows with pinpoint accuracy. He also acquired a lot of details about Kaos himself. Even though Ro-Bow's past was a mystery, his future became quite clear - his new prime directive was to seek out Master Eon and help fight evil. With this incredible archery knowledge and skills, there could be no better trainer for the Bowslinger Class, so Eon made him a Sensei on the spot.


Starcast

"A shot in the dark!"
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

No one knows where Starcast came from, including Starcast himself! He was first seen falling out of the sky and landing directly on top of Master Eon, after he had made a wish for a Ninja Master to train the new generation of Skylanders. While it appeared that Eon’s wish had come true, it was later revealed that Pop Fizz had simultaneously made a wish to get out of anger management lessons with the old Portal Master. Therefore, it was impossible to determine if Starcast was the result of one wish or the other. But after a brief martial arts display, it was clear to all that the mysterious Starcast was a very skilled ninja warrior. And seeing as how Master Eon had to walk around in crutches for the next few weeks, it was also clear that anger management class would have to be postponed – so it was a win-win!


  • Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: 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.
  • Ninja: One who doesn't make use of more traditional means of misdirection as he can naturally turn invisible.
  • Ninja Log: 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.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Uses his four arms to throw shurikens.

Tidepool

"In a league of my own!"
Voiced by: Moira Quirk

Long before she became a Sensei, Tidepool was an undercover agent for a top secret organization known as the Aqua Marines. However, one day she was betrayed by her superiors, who were part of an even more top secret organization intent on destroying Skylands. Using her spy training, Tidepool made it her personal mission to seek out every member of this evil shadow group and bring them to justice. This did not go unnoticed by Master Eon, who felt that someone of her caliber would be perfect to train new Skylanders as a Sensei of the Quickshot class. However, Tidepool was not easily convinced that she could even trust Eon and the Skylanders after being deceived by her last organization. To earn her trust, she requested that everyone pass a truth test that she would conduct. Thankfully, all of the members of the Skylanders Academy passed with flying colors... except for Flynn, who insisted that he was 50% Mabu and 50% enchilada sauce. Tidepool felt that he was 100% meathead.


Tri-Tip

"Face the mace!"
Notable variants: Legendary Tri-Tip
Voiced by: Jamieson Price

Long before he became a Sensei, Tri-Tip wandered Skylands searching for the mythical Warping Walnut Tree, rumored to never be at the same place long before moving to a new location. After many years, he found the tree - and just before it vanished once again, he took from it a Golden Walnut, which was said to reveal life’s purpose to those who could open it. But to his dismay, the enchanted walnut could not be cracked no matter how hard he struck it with his thick head. Realizing that only a weapon of immense power could crack the magical shell, and not his head, Tri-Tip forged a mighty mace and trained with the greatest warriors to become the ultimate Master of Smashing. But on the day when he was finally ready to open the shell, he paused. It was then that Tri-Tip realized his true purpose – one that the unopened walnut had been teaching him all along. His purpose in life was to use his skills to protect Skylands. He then gifted the unopened walnut to one of his students and left to join the Skylanders.


  • Borrowed Catchphrase: One of his quotes does this and then immediately lampshades it:
    Tri-Tip: Dino-might! And yes, I stole that one from Chopper.
  • Dumb Muscle: Not quite as dumb as other examples, but it's clear intellect is not his forte.
    Tri-Tip: You can put your faith in numbers, mine is in the club!
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: He's an anthropomorphic Triceratops.
  • The All-Solving Hammer: Firmly believes the solution to every problem he's confronted with is "smash it."

Wild Storm

"The roar of thunder!"
Voiced by: Dave Fennoy

By the time he was 10 years old, Wild Storm had already mastered the Air Blade. With no family of his own, he spent much of his youth traveling throughout Skylands, offering his combat services to the highest bidder as a soldier of fortune. On one such occasion, he was hired by Kaos to break into a pirate outpost in Skyhighlands to steal their legendary gold detector. But little did Wild Storm know, he was only being used by Kaos to scout their defenses – and he was captured by the pirates! While imprisoned in the highest tower, the powerful winds blew through his cell, fueling his anger. But Wild Storm would not be contained! Harnessing the storm’s energy, he grew 3 times his size and exploded out of his prison – vowing to put a stop to Kaos once and for all. Soon after, he met Master Eon, who agreed to help him, provided Wild Storm would share his skills in swordsmanship with other Skylanders, as a Sensei of the Knight Class!


  • Badass Baritone: Has one of the deepest voices out of any Skylander and is a Sensei for a reason.
