Gill Runt was one of the four special “sidekick” characters released by Activision through their first promotion with Frito-Lay. He is the miniature of Gill Grunt
. Fans who collected UPC symbols from specially marked bags of Frito-Lay 20-count variety packs, could send away for these side kicks for just a few dollars shipping. The character is NOT a controllable Skylander in game, but will show up in all three games to fight next to one of the main characters when placed on the portal. He is treated more like a magic item where he supports any other character that the player is using. Unlike magic items, a sidekick does not expire after a time limit.
The green base Gill Runt can now only be obtained used or through a reseller, however a red base Gill Runt will be re-released for Skylanders Trap Team
Gill Runt and 15 other minis will become playable in Trap Team
. He will be part of a mini two pack with Thumpling
to be released later. He will also be sold in an exclusive "Buddy Pack" at Walmart paired with Tidal Wave Gill Grunt
