Rotting Robbies

Rotting Robbies are zombies enemies that are only encountered in Cadaverous Crypt and Spyro‘s Heroic Challenge. They can only be defeated by fire based attacks, from Eruptor‘s Lava Lobs to Drobot‘s Afterburners… any fire attack (plus a cannon blast) will defeat them.

Skylander Tip: Fast Dragons

A dragon might help you!

Did you know half of the Skylander dragons can fly? But even the ones that can’t have cool ways of getting around fast. If you’re going for the completion time goal, a dragon might help you get it!

Did you know that two Skylanders aren’t full dragons? Camo is half-plant and Whirlwind is half-unicorn!

Soul Gems

Soul Gems are glowing gem-like treasures that unlock a special power for a specific Skylander. They are found in all chapters of the console versions of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure

After a gem has been found, the corresponding upgrade can be bought from Persephone.

Did you know if you go to your friend’s house and find that he has a hat in his collection that you don’t, you can put the hat on any of your Skylanders and bring it home with you?
