Terrafin hails from The Dirt Seas, where it was common to swim, bathe, and even snorkel beneath the ground. But a powerful explosion in the sky created a blast wave that turned the ocean of sand into a vast sheet of glass, putting an end to Terrafin’s duty as the local lifeguard. Not one to stay idle, the brawny dirt shark found himself training in the art of boxing, and not long after he was local champ. Fighters came from all around to challenge him, but it was a chance meeting with a great Portal Master that led him to give up his title for a greater purpose.
Elite Terrafin was released with the first year of Eon's Elite characters which came out with the Trap Team game. He is exclusive to GameStop.
Eon's Elite characters sit on a gold base with a clear uncolored bottom as they do not belong to any one game. In the Trap Team game and each game after Trap Team, the Eon's Elite characters will be three times stronger than the original character. In older games they will still work but they will act just like the original character did.
Elite Terrafin has four other variants: Terrafin (Spyro's Adventure), Terrafin Series 2 (Giants), Knockout Terrafin (Swap Force), and Shark Shooter Terrafin (SuperChargers). He also has a sidekick named Terrabite which got a full retail release as a mini with Skylanders Trap Team.
