Rider and his magnificent ostrich, Fright, were the finest jousting team in all of Skylands. But after winning the championship for the third straight year, a jealous competitor placed a curse on the elf that sent him to the land of Undead. Not wanting to be without his partner, Fright, who up until this point had been afraid of nearly everything, ate a bag of skele-oats that turned him into a skeleton so that he could brace the journey to the underworld to save his friend. Grateful for being rescued, Fright Rider returned to the surface dedicated to helping others - while still dominating an occasional jousting tournament from time to time.
Fright Rider is a new Undead Skylander debuting in Giants. He has one special variant: Glow in the Dark Fright Rider.
He was released with the Wave 1 Skylanders as an individual character and then later as part of a triple pack with Wrecking Ball Series 2 and Flameslinger Series 2 in Wave 4.
