Top 10 Best Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Characters

The Top Ten
1 Stealth Elf

I have her and she is the best! She levels up to 15 and can heal by herself. I beat Jet-Vac with her by using my dummy. Jet-Vac couldn't even find me! Her upgrades are super powerful on the top path. I almost killed drobot with her! Drobot had 147 health when he killed me. His drobot was level 15 and Stealth elf is level 15 to! She is awesome!

Stealth Elf is a difficult skylander to master. She has low armor and low health, and most of her attacks are melee. Her advantage comes from the speed of her attacks and here movement. She can dart in and out of combat, striking enemies with deadly knifes, or enter stealth mode and catch her enemies unaware for a special back stab attack. SILENT BUT DEADLY!

Stealth Elf is by far the best Skylander. If you choose the 1st path, one of the upgrades lets magical swords float around you and attack with U.She can make 360 combo moves and can teleport and automatically heal. Best Skylander ever!

For me, double trouble has always been the most useful skylander when I play against my friends, but stealth elf, while not being too op, was always the second best and is always the most enjoyable for me to use.

2 Ignitor

My Ignitor is at level 15 and I have managed to beat every single skylander in 1v1 except the giants (cause ignitor has a little bit to low health). His attacks are very powerful and if you're a good player and not a noob you will defeat most of the skylanders with ease thanks to good combos and the right decisions. Notice that I've choosen the sword path which is just the best with the extreme Mega Slam with a critical damage of 120(skylanders giants). Enough said.

Ignitor RULES! He has great attack power, a pretty sweet defensive system, and his upgrades only get better. You start off with amazing sword attacks and then the next thing ya know, you have RANGED sword attacks with even greater damage! This Skylander was so awesome... I actually skipped Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Trigger Happy!

Lgnitor rules! His long ranged attack is perfect and safe. His Blue flames (Wow Pow)is super stunning. This power can leave blue flames behind and any enemies that hits it inflicts some damage. His Mega Slam is so awesome. The attack deals high damage and good for bosses and tough enemies. VOTE FOR IGNITOR!

Ignitor is way better than stealth elf. Stealth elf stinks. Ignitor almost does as much as giants (except for Thumpback of course). Do not trust anyone who says Stealth elf is the best Skylander. Ignitor truly deserves to be number 1. Ignitor does more than stealth elf

3 Drobot

I honestly think that drobot kicks ass, if he has enemies in front of him his quadratic lasers can also blow up enemies near the target, if they are really close behind him he can fly away and use his afterburners to scorch em and if they are far to his left or far to his right and he's facing a far away wall he can use his blade gears in a frenzy. Best of all if he is flying he can launch blade gears backwards and if he is flying slow when he hovers and starts flying again his afterburners will recharge. Number 1!

Drobot can kill just about anyone he can get his metal claws on. I think that some people do better with some skylanders than others, and it's tedious to find that one that's just right for you but Drobot can just annhialate anything besides his weakness... CHOP CHOP! This dude is normally just a good melee but he can tear through drobot in an arena battle. Still drobot holds my first place! Thanks 4 reading!

It's incredibly easy to kill hordes of enemies with Drobot. He can tear anything up with his eye lasers, which can get more powerful with the Master Blaster path. His laser attack has the awesome combination of having automatic aim and automatic fire, so if you upgrade lasers to the max, you can just hover around and hold the attack button to blow everything to bits

His eye attack is very quick and powerful if you hold A. It can pretty much demolish an enemy that other Skylanders can't do that easily. If you hold A, his eye blast can go on forever, one after the other, really quick. And this is the way he can slow his enemies down. This is why I love Drobot.

4 Trigger Happy

The spam you can do with his guns is super overpowered and he has the ability to get the job done with ease from level one. He is undoubtedly one of the best skylanders (I mean that in a good way)

He is really crazy and with machine gun upgrade and ultimate ammo he can keep spinning round and round while shooting loads of bullets everywhere which has proved to be great in battle.

Triggy happy is sucks! He has these little guns that does 5% of damage. But the good thing about Triggy happy is his upgrades. My favourite upgrade is His gun shoots out bigger bombs then usual.

! This guy, This Guy! If this game were competitive, he is god tier. Wall bounces upgrade. Machine gun. When paired with the right king of brony... I mean crazy, well yeah.P.S. Give me all the muffins!

5 Sonic Boom

One of the great things about Sonic Boom is she becomes a boss whichever path you choose. Before you choose a path, she's actually pretty pathetic. Her roar is powerful and her babies can take on enemies while she can take on other enemies. And even better, with her soul gem, her babies can attack from further away. Even egg toss is great if you choose medea griffon, and on siren griffon, roar has great range. She should be in the top 5.


She is a beast and I defeated kaos with her babies she can beat everyone except for ignitor and chop chop I am shocked that hex is above her like I said she is a beast!

She is awesome has little helpers and very fast.

When fully upgraded, Sonic Boom is beast.

6 Chop Chop

I'm sorry double trouble. I know you used to be the best, but chop chop blew you out of the water. Most people don't recognize it, but his shield is literally immune to everything if you upgrade it completely. His sword is just another piece of crap, so go for it. With some practice on a consistent use of the boost, you're a winner.

SLICE AND DICE! Chop Chop is awesome. He got through every level and even Kaos. Sorry, Prism Break. l know you're the best in the game but Chop Chop just blew you out of the knock Down zone. When you you upgrade him fully he will just SLICE you directly. He is probably the best undead Skylander. When you always try him he acts like the winner of the game. AWESOME!

With a proper speed boost can take on even ignitor, he just runs around you and swing-swing-swings his sword, you don't even need the combos!

He can block and if you choose he sword path with the upgrades the final one is awesome vote for chop-chop no matter what.

7 Hex

GO HEX! Well, she is not the best but she has a pretty good ability. That super bone wall is great. When a enemies hit that wall... BOOM. When she is fully upgraded she becomes the master of Undead plus she was more easy to control and her aiming skills. She killed my Trigger Happy, Terrafin, Eruptor and Drobot! Kaos will try to kill her. But with all her attacks, upgrades and her awesome soul Gem Kaos will rapidly fail. Ha.

Hex is the best in battle mode. All you have to do is make your wall of bones in the corner and use your skull rain attack. It is also very good in long hallways. If you chose the 2nd path, all you have to do is put up your wall of bones and wait for the enemies to die. They will try to get past it, but they will ultimately fail.

Hex is awesome! L know that her primary attacks is not that good but her walls of bones are really useful. Once you summon them use them to protect you. But if you don't like it once you get the upgrades you will soon know she is cool. And her wow pow, Skull buddy can attack Hex's foes nearby!

With her skull rain attack which can be upgraded to knock back enemy almost like a movable force field, and the wall of bones which acts as another force field keeping attackers away while hex doesn't get hit.

8 Terrafin

The Mr. T of Skylands... 'enough said


Fine. First, Terrafin is unstoppable when he burrows, as he is untouched by most if not all attacks. His Body Slam takes out a decent amount of health, and when that is coupled with his Series 2 Wow Pow, he becomes virtually unstoppable.

Now for you people who like to complain that the burrowing is cheating.

Terrafin isn't the boxing champ for nothing. When fully upgraded, his regular punch attacks do somewhere around 40- 50 damage (I forget and I'm too lazy to look it up). Then, after he delivers two Silver Platter Specials (aka his spiked knuckles) to the opponents face, he unloads with an uppercut that would make Mike Tyson Proud. The Uppercut not only does 60 damage, but it allows for Terrafin to move out of the way of an attack.

As for his sharks, they're meh. They do dish out some damage, but nothing significant. One thing is clear though. Mess with Terrafin, and the whole family comes swimming to take ...more

Terrafin is awesome because he can go underground and his belly flop does major damage. You can teach him the upgrade that lets him go back underground right after using the belly flop so he is UNSTOPPABLE! He has other things like his strong brass knuckles and the mini sharks.

Me and my family had a competition. In the end it was Terrafin and Stealth Elf. It was a close match, but Terrafin's damage destroyed Stealth Elf. He is a tank with health and damage, plus he can go underground.

Terrafin can do a really powerful belly flop, really powerful punches, and he can even avoid taking damage by going underground! I tried both paths, and you should definitely choose brawler.

9 Spyro Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.

OK, l can tell you some facts about Spyro l know. Spyro became the first Skylander. He is the most well-known Skylander. Spyro came to skyland and he knows about Skylanders so he said to Eon " Can l be a Skylander? " Eon made him show his attacks if he is strong enough to become a Skylander. When Spyro was done Eon couldn't believe his eyes. Spyro was amazing! Eon made him become the first Skylander. Eon told him about the core of light and also Kaos and his enemies. Whenever Kaos and his enemies came Eon made him fight them and Spyro always won.

Spryo is the best! The game is named after him for a reason! His attacks are astounding and harmful to a whole range of enemies, also he is a well-loved character and has played a part in many of our childhoods. Vote for Spyro, he truly is the greatest.

Spyro won't fail you if you want to win! He will destroy all enemies! By the way, I used him to kill Kaos, too! His attacks deal so much damage that no one should even try to vote for anyone else! How is he number 14! He should at least be in the top 3, if not the best!

Spyro won't fail if you want to win! He will destroy all enemies! By the way, l used him to kill Kaos, too! His attacks deal so much damage that no one should even try to vote for anyone else! How is he number 14! He should at least be in the top 3, if not the best!

10 Double Trouble

The sunbeam attack is so powerful. Once it locks on, it deals continual damage, and will still allow you to move. So, you lock onto your opponent, and then put some distance between you and them, while still using the sunbeam to continue doing damage and avoiding their attacks. I have used him to complete every skylander game on the hardest levels, and he continues to succeed.

Add to that his smaller explosive versions who suicide explode into weaker opponents while you're off killing other things makes him extremely powerful.

double trouble is a very good skylander because once you upgrade him his so energy energy beam can do maxium damage he is awesome. He is also awesome because his energy beam can split in to 3 beams. I play with double trouble a lot and he is level 15 with all upgrades and he beet tree rex. That is so awesome because skylanders always lose to the giants since the are really powerful. You should really use the magic bomb attack a lot because it does 65 damage with that attack double trouble is extremely unstoppable

Take the sun laser beam upgrade path and you are good to go. if someone with a melee attack comes in and starts dealing astronomic numbers just use his space bomb things. If you are competing against a joke you can just run around leaving doubles. but really its really his space ray that makes him op. by the way I have theory that lightning rod and double trouble are the same person.

I LOVE this guy when you start out with him the beams can do 11 damage, I think this is very decent. Also the beam hone/home into the enemy. for the paths I do not recommend the "baby bomb things" but the one the focuses on the beams. I love this skylander overall

The Contenders
11 Ghost Roaster

He's awesome he has moves that can go up to 50+ his stats are good and looks are awesome and when he goes into ectoplasm mode he just knocks every one out.

He's awesome he has cool and powerful moves that could go for 50+ his stats are great and on looks he just look awesome.

Use the skull and just spin in a circle around people. It is monstrously over powered.

I keep using the skull charge and that has helped me beat most levels and defeat Kaos.

12 Slam Bam

I think Terrafin is the best Skylander because when he diggs underground no one can attack him Anaheim looks cool plus he has a very high attack.

Slam bam is awesome he has 4 arms and he can freeze his enemies an punch them with ice fists.

Slam Bam is pretty much the best character I have and I'm only missing Terrafin and wham shell (since he's not out yet! )

Slam Bam never dies and when he does then you still have all your other skyladers to finish the level with!

13 Cynder

Cynder is really powerful. She can bring lightning down from the sky. Also, she can do a shadow dash. The cool thing is that when she does shadow dash she will leave ghost behind which damage different kinds of enemy's. Lightning can come from her mouth too! I think Cynder is one of the greatest skylanders ever created.

I chose Cynder because she's the total package. You can zap enemies with black lightning anywhere from near to far. Also, the ghost trail is useful for booby traps. I couldn't tell you how many times I baited enemies in, only to slip behind them and zap them and the ghosts. BOOM!

I think she is the best skylander ever. With an upgrade she can bring down lightning rain down from the sky. I mean that is cool. And she can have a ghost that attacks enemy's for you. I think nether welder is her best path because she can blow up her ghosts after shadow dash. Also you can use her lightning attack for about 6 secondsVOTE CYNDER

I choose cynder because she's a hoss. With long/short range lighting that has an insane spread. The shadow dash to get you out of sticky situations only to turn around and zap the ghost left behind to make great little bombs. Speed, power, cheap shots= Cynder.

14 Sunburn

In my opinion he's really powerful. If you take the flamethrower upgrade path, he can have unlimited flame and, if you hold the action button down long enough, will turn into pure Fire.

His dash attack is also strong and good for speeding through areas. One upgrade he can take (I believe it is the soul gem power) allows him to explode into flame as he is emerging from his fiery path.

Overall, he's very cool. I love the idea of a Phoenix-dragon hybrid, and his design is awesome. He is definitely my favorite.

I have never lost a match with sunburn. I use the flamethrower breath and when my opponent gets too close I teleport behind them and then continue attacking. If my opponent is attacking from a long range then I will use Phoenix dash to get close enough to them so that I can push them out of their comfort zone. I've even beat people who are using giants or trapmasters with sunburn. If played right he absolutely dominates and I believe that he deserves to be at least in the top 10.

Sunburn's controlled teleportation attack allows you to blast enemies with flamethrower breath and then teleport away just in time to to do it again. My sister was so upset when I destroyed her Ignitor without any damage. GO SUNBURN!

Sunburn has the ability to defeat enemies in so many diffirent ways. The teleportation ability gives it the advantage it needs in battle. Oh, and the flamethrower fire breath kicks butt. Although its attack isn't up to the level of Ignitor, I think Sunburn is the best fire Skylander and one of the top overall.

15 Flameslinger

Overall, well Okay. Lf you hear a "overall" in a comment, that's me Yun Mo. Okay, Where was l? Oh yeah, Overall, Flameslinger is bad. Well, sure his fire arrow has long range but it is average speed and deals low damage. Even if you upgrade it, it is not an Boss Fight attack. Flameslinger's arrows are still reatively low-damage and the speed is only average. The Flame Dash is fun but is difficult to turn and deals low damage.The Volley Shot isn't impressive power. Lt is only useful when picking enemies at higher level than Flameslinger and the Soul Gem don't add much to Volley Shot. And, the Wow Pow Power. Yeah, l know the flames are bigger and you can run quicker, but if there are enemies surrounding you, you can't take them down because it is rather difficult. L'm not saying it's impossible, but it is rather difficult.

Flameslinger rules! His fire bow and arrow has a perfect range that will keep out of enemies's attacks and attack safely. His flame run is awesome! Even through it does a little damage, it is safe for Flameslinger to get attacked. Once you get Speed Demon (Wow Pow) he is stunning. The trail is bigger and is easier for enemies to get hit. His Volley strike is okay but if you get super volley shot (Soul Gem) he is awesome.

I've played, and beaten, all three games in nightmare mode, and yes, there are admittedly more 'powerful' Skylanders available - (Tree Rex and Magna Charge are simply beast), but my little Flameslinger is the complete package as far as I'm concerned. Couple his volley of arrows and his ring of fire with his insane speed and agility, and he will always be a force to be reconed with. "Let the Flames Begin"!

Whoever put stealth elf #1 is mentally retarded. Flameslinger deserves 1# since he has more health, long ranged attacks, non misleading elemental attacks EX: how is stupid elf life does she use plant power NO! And finally he does a lot of damage.

16 Zook

Zook is so powerful. Even though he's slow his defense and attack make up for it.

His mortar is so great, him, Crusher (I know I'm weird), Flameslinger, Zoo Lou and Slobber tooth are my favorites.

Zook is a beast, his cacti are so awesome I killed kaos with him one try. He should be number one. Also his mortar/cacti is boss.

I like Zoom because he has this bazooka stuck to his arm.

17 Gill Grunt

My first Skylander did well but it took time to upgrade. But after that it was awesome is jet pack and anchor. The best was shooting three anchors at once bit weak of course but it help vs KAOS

This guy can beat stealth elf any day! Even erupt or ranked at 108 can beat stealth elf! With his anchors doing more damage then flameslingers arrows. And his high powered hose nothing can stop this fish!
For The Gills!

Have you seen the guy he is amazing! Turning into a shadow with amazing traps! And fast claw attacks no one can beat this tiger!

He's pretty good, and his Anchor Upgrade is awesome.

18 Camo

Camo shoots Sun Blasts seriously quickly, and even though they're small, I killed so many Skitterboons with just one Sun Blast. His firecracker vines aren't that useful at ALL, but if you just stick with Sun Blasts and Melon Fountains, Camo is awesome. The only problem with melon fountain is you still get damaged while you're in the middle of it (I found that out when I was against a Shadow Knight). Anyway, Camo rules!

A half-plant half-dragon? Someone who doesn't play Skylanders would think he's bad but he is one of the best Skylanders ever! He is S1 so he works on all games (however, Thorn Horn Camo only works on Swap Force and Trap Team, but we're talking about original Camo). He looks cool and has good attacks. You can easily spam his Sun Blast attack to defeat the strongest of enemies. Get hit? No problem. Once you purchase his soul gem just hold down the Sun Blast button and you will gain a Sun Blast shield. Once you have three Sun Blasts circling around you you heal yourself! The Firecracker Vines attack are bad at first, but if you upgrade them (NOT INCLUDING THE FIRECRACKER VINES UPGRADE PATH! ) they become decent, but still his worst attack. The Melon Fountain is great, especially after choosing the Melon Master upgrade path which gives the melons more damage, adds more melons, and allows you to hide in the fountain by holding down the Melon Fountain button and releasing it to send all ...more

Camo is the best. His speed is high, his fireballs are effective, and his melons are really awesome. Sure, Stealth Elf is great too, Stump Smash has high health, and Ignitor can do a lot of damage, but honestly, to me, no contest. Camo wins any day.

Camo is the best his melons are OP firecracker are useless and sunbursts strong and fast and with his soul gem he heals himself. Not to mention with the melon fountain upgraded all the way most things can't hit you without breaking the melons so he is by far the best in my opinion camo 1st Spyro 2nd stealth elf 3rd

19 Whirlwind

She is half unicorn half Dragon which is my favorite animals. And she can fly, shoot magical rainbows, heal ally, and create thunder clouds. She truly is the best when fighting a boss, just put another character that has low health in and she will heal them all the way!

Whirlwind is my fave Skylander. Yes I love having my own unicorn, but she is a powerful player too. She has great range, can reach bad guys on towers, and I've taken down level after level with her. Stealth Elf makes a nice partner to play with.

She is awesome in any paths, but I prefer the rainbow path as. I can charge and unleash a rainbow black hole at my foes. I even defeated my bro in a pvp match, I won as my bro got suck into the black hole, laugh out loud. Lastly, she is cute, my opinion, double laugh out loud

Ultimate Rainbower is so MUCH. FUN! Whirlwind has the coolest attacks dealing a great deal of damage with awesome. Rainbows. I just love Rainbow Singularity. She is a must-have just for the rainbows!

20 Voodood

His staff does killer damage skylander should be top 15 at minimum. His elecric wires almost hit if your good a them and do decent damage

21 Bash

No one can beat him fully upgraded in a battle! He hits minimum 240 when upgraded, can travel fast through rolling, has amazing armour and very high health. Combined with heroic challenges he is unstoppable,

He does major damage that can defeat anything easily and frankly is just good looking.

Bash is one of my strongest skylanders if you charge up the gaia hammer then it does 240 damage!

Get the Gia Hammer for his Tail swipe and it can dish overall 200 damage!

22 Stump Smash

Stump smash is the best skylander ever! Because he can just smash down a bad guy with his hammer and with his acorn in his mouth. He can just spit it out of his mouth. And it goes so fast the bad guy will not have a chance to run away from the acorn

He has so much health, which means he can take on anyone! Best melee character!

Easily the most powerful. Can defeat every giant too.

Tree with hammer hands! Hell yeah!

23 Wham-Shell

Come on witch his golden mace. And electrical fields nothing can stop this crab!

24 Lightning Rod

What is lightning rod doing over her with the loser skylanders he should be in top 10!

Lightning rod is ugly so let him stay at the... I don't know? 85th place or something

I like lightning rod because he can shoot cool lightning bolts
And he is the only skylander that's more of a human.

25 Wrecking Ball

He is cute and very strong. His soul gem move is very powerful and it makes him unstoppable.

He is so cute and very strong. His force field ball is a great way to get big enemies.

Wrecking ball is so cute and he can roll and eat stuff from far away.

Wrecking ball does major damage and his tongue can swallow enemies.
