The 10 Coolest and Fiercest Skylanders Bosses

The 10 Coolest and Fiercest Skylanders Bosses

The Skylanders games have some of the most amazing boss fights of all time. The guys you have to go up against to save the Skylands are both cool looking and really fierce in battle! Here at BoxMash, we traveled through all of the Skylands to find the biggest and baddest of those bosses. From one to ten, here’s our countdown of who we think are the coolest and the fiercest!

#1 Kaos

Kaos 1

Kaos is the evilest of the?Portal Masters?and the big baddie of the Skylanders series. After plotting to take over Skylands, he?was responsible for banishing all the Skylanders?to Earth after destroying the Core of Light that protected Skylands.

Who??Kaos is a very small Portal Master with a very big ego! He is a master of Dark Magic and can cast a large, hooded projection of his head and use a deep voice to try to scare the Skylanders.?Kaos was teased when he was younger and desperately tries to be taken seriously as a villain, even though he’s actually quite funny. Claiming that?he?is the only real Portal Master, he is always trying to glorify himself, filling?his castle filled with things that boost his ego.

Kaos 2

Why is Kaos so awesome??Although very funny, Kaos is a master of Dark Magic and is very cunning and clever, tricking the Skylanders more than once, and coming up with new surprises in each game to keep you guessing. He is the big boss in every game, meaning he’s very tough to defeat!?Kaos has loads of cool powers, like being able to summon darker versions of the Skylanders and other beings such as Trolls?as his minions. He can also cast very powerful spells with the assistance of the?Eternal Sources and project magic bolts of energy.?In?Giants, he transforms into a large and extremely powerful Arkeyan robot. It gives him complete command over the Arkeyan armies, and he has eye lasers.?In?Swap Force, he transforms into Super Evil Kaos when a huge pile of?Petrified Darkness?lands on top of him. This makes him a large gigantic rock-like version of himself.

Kaos 3

Where to find Kaos? Kaos appears in all three games. You must battle him in these levels:

Swap Force: Chapter 16: Motherly Mayhem

Giants: Chapter 16: Bringing Order to Kaos

She is a friend of Kaos’ Mom, and helps her in her quest to?try to stop the Skylanders atop the Frostfest Mountains and capture the Frosthound.?Mesmeralda loves to sing, and when she makes her grand entrance to the Skylanders atop the mountain she treats the fight like a stage and sings to you.


Why is Mesmeralda so awesome? Mesmeralda is cool because she has style!?Not only is Mesmeralda an evil puppeteer dressed like a clown, but she is also part spider.

With?Skylands trapped in?an infinite time loop,?the Skylanders must collect all the time gears to defeat Cluck, and battle him not once, but twice, in two different suits.?The Skylanders eventually defeat Cluck, destroying his suit, but the small white bird swears that they haven’t seen the last of him as he flies away.

Why is Cluck so awesome??As a tiny bird, Cluck is really awesome. He gets not one, but two suits in his level, which give him different powers, and he can use laser beam attacks. Cluck swears he’ll be back, so keep an eye out for him in future Skylanders games!

Who? ?The Sheep Mage is an evil wizard who loves sheep so much that he only uses magic related to them. He is the main baddie of the Sheep Wreck Island adventure pack in?Swap Force.?Sheep Mage is a bit of a sheepy hero: seeing his fellow sheep being mistreated and pushed around by the inhabitants of Skylands, the Sheep Mage gathered the sheep on Sheep Wreck Island in order to lead them to spread their ‘sheepdom’ throughout the Skylands as revenge. Sheep Mage also appears in the 3DS version of Swap Force, where he is called the Vortex Monster and his wizard form is never shown.

Chompy mage

“You are not a Chompy! So I don’t like you!!!”

The Chompy Mage has a funny backstory. Whilst on his way to the annual Chompy Convention ‘ChompyCon’ he got lost. He didn’t want to ask for directions, so he pretended like he moved to Wilikin Village on purpose! The Chompy Mage then figured he would stay there for a while, practicing his magic, and then set out for the ChompyCon next year. However, the Chompy Mage’s antics proved to be a nuisance to the Wilikin, switching them constantly between the real world and the Wilikin world.

Why is Chompy Mage so awesome??Chomy Mage may be the weirdest Skylanders boss, but he is certainly a formidable foe! Being a wizard, the Chompy Mage has the ability to summon magic that can be harmful in the real world such as taking away health, or good in the other world, such as healing the Skylanders.

#8 Drill-X?

I’ll knock you forward and back
with a robo attack
’cause you’re messing with the wrong machine!”

Who? Drill-X is a large Robot Drilling Machine, who also just happens to sing. The name “Drill-X” may actually be a reference to Skrillex, a real life rapper. Drill-X appeared in his?oil rig?where he drills his way to the?Lost City of Arkus?for?Kaos. There are different phases in the battle, and in between each phase, Drill-X sings in order to throw you off your game.

Why is Drill-X so awesome? Drill-X raps in between each of the rounds of his battle. You don’t get more hip than a drill that sings. He also has three phases to his battle, in which he can summon lasers, throw rocks, and use fire. Quite a scary foe!

Instead of confronting the Skylanders himself, Vathek keeps his distance while using the Throne’s power to summon the creatures who are loyal to the Throne to do the fighting for him, until there are no more minions left to do his bidding. Eventually he has to do battle himself.
