Heartbroken, Gill Grunt began searching all over Skylands. Though he had yet to find her, he joined the Skylanders to help protect others from such evil, while still keeping an ever-watchful eye for the beautiful mermaid and the pirates who took her.

Chop Chop

Chop Chop was once an elite warrior belonging to the ancient race of Arkeyan beings. Like many of the Arkeyans, he was created from a hybrid of elements – in his case, undead magic and technology. Chop Chop is a relentless, highly-skilled solider who wields a sword and shield made of an indestructible metal. With the Arkeyans having vanished long ago, Chop Chop wandered Skylands for centuries looking for his creators. Eventually, he was found by Eon and recruited as a Skylander. It appears he shouts “Boner” at the start of his Soul Gem Preview.

Undead Element

Chop Chop is an Arkeyan warrior who is one of the Skylanders. Chop Chop is of the Undead element.

Drill Sergeant

Like many Arkeyan artifacts, Drill Sergeant was buried for centuries- a long forgotten remnant of an ancient powerful civilization. It was only a chance collision with a burrowing Terrafin that led to his systems firing up again. By Arkeyan custom, Drill Sergeant was then obligated to become Terrafin’s servant. This didn’t sit well with the dirt shark, so his first order as master was for Drill Sergeant to not serve him at all…a command he continues to follow zealously to this day.

Tech Element

Drill Sergeant is an Arkeyan robot who is one of the 32 Skylanders. He was previously a store (Walmart) exclusive Skylander, but is now available in a 3 Character Pack along with Whirlwind and Double Trouble, and is also in a single pack. Drill Sergeant is of the Tech Element.

Dark Spyro

"Lights Out!"

Spyro is a rare  magical  dragon with the ability to harness the power of the other elements, though he prefers to master fire. However,  this innate power also leaves him vulnerable to the influence of dark magic. When The Darkness is nearby, Spyro can channel its energy and combine its power with his own, becoming Dark Spyro. Over the years, he has learned to focus and control his power, using this dark magic to fight the forces of evil.

Appearance

Dark Spyro looks exactly the same as Spyro apart from the fact he is black where he should be purple and silver where he should be bronze.

Abilities

Although Dark Spyro has the exact same abilities as Spyro in the console version of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure (and thus the same as Legendary Spyro, with only a color swap), his changes are quite dramatic in the 3DS version of the game. In the 3DS version, Spyro and Legendary Spyro are quite masterful shooting just regular fireballs and using their Horn Charge. However, Dark Spyro is more adept at physical slashes and using magical thunder. At first he can use only a three-hit slashing combo, and of course dash and jump, and is also one of the characters able to glide. As he levels up he learns to shoot thunder balls (which he can later run over to get power and speed boosts) and shoot powerful rays of lightning energy.

Magic Element

Dark Spyro is a counterpart of Spyro who is available exclusively when you buy the 3DS version of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. However, you can still use him with any version of the game and even on the Spyro’s Universe web game. Spyro is of the Magic Element.

Eruptor is a force of nature,
hailing from a species that lived deep in the underground of a floating volcanic island until a massive eruption launched their entire civilization to the surface.

Personality

Eruptor is hot-headed and strongly dislikes evil doers. He enjoys relaxing in the lava pools in order to help control his temper. He also has a habit of burping uncontrollably as shown in a commercial for Skylanders.

Abilities

Bash

Bash spent most of his early dragonhood staring into the sky, watching the flying creatures of Skylands soar amongst the clouds. Determined to join them, he learned how to curl himself into a ball and roll with incredible momentum in a vain attempt to take flight. Over the years, his skin hardened, forming a natural protective armor unlike any other creature. He now thunders through Skylands, leaving a wake of destruction against any who threaten it. Despite his thick skin, he still gets a bit touchy about his inability to fly and bash was born with rock dragon but got separated by an earthquake and was raised by dinosaurs just like zap, camo and spyro and bash is part of the sacred dragons

Sonic Boom

Long ago, Sonic Boom took refuge high atop a mountain peak in the far reaches of Skylands, hoping to keep her griffin hatchlings safe. But despite her precautions, a devious wizard tracked her down and placed a wicked curse on the griffin eggs. Once hatched, the young hatchlings can live for only mere moments before they magically return to their shells… only to be hatched again in an endless cycle. Wanting to prevent such evil from happening to others, Sonic Boom joined the Skylanders and has trained her young to defend Skylands each time they are hatched.
