The Golden Queen is an Earth trappable villain and is the leader of the Doom Raiders in Skylanders Trap Team. She is a wicked queen made entirely of gold and is rich beyond her wildest imagination. But that isn’t enough for the Golden Queen. If there is more to be had, then have it she wants. So she stole and stole and stole, but it was never enough, there was always more to be had. Through evil sorcery she even learned how to turn people and objects into solid gold. However, that was still not enough. The idea that there was treasure in Skylands that was not hers infuriated her. She began a quest to take every last cent of it, but she couldn’t do it alone. That is when she formed the Doom Raiders – the most notorious group of villains ever assembled. She promised riches, world domination, and even all-you-can-eat shrimp just to recruit special criminals to her cause. Together they terrorized Skylands until Master Eon and the Trap Masters put a stop to them and locked them up in Cloudcracker Prison!
Dreamcatcher is an Air trappable villain that you will be able to capture at the end of the eighth level – Telescope Towers. The Dreamcatcher is another one of the Doom Raiders who you will be able to trap if you have an Air Trap. Cloudcracker Prison wasn’t the first prison she ever broke out of. She also escaped the Lucid Lockdown from within the Realm of Dreams. She even broke out of the dream realm itself. She has the power to read your mind and to bring your worst nightmares to life. She has driven entire villages mad just for the fun of it. It was this playfully evil nature which attracted the Golden Queen to her. The Golden Queen needed a psychic for her evil schemes and for some relationship advice. The Dreamcatcher loved to gossip as much as coming up with a cunning plans so she gladly joined the Doom Raiders. However, due to her mischievous nature, the Golden Queen has not quite trusted her relationship advice.
Pain-Yatta – Villain Review
Pain-Yatta is a Magic element villain that is hanging around Level 8 – Telescope Towers. You will find that Pain-Yatta is filled with candy, and evil. I’m not sure who’s idea it was to turn a pinata into a minion of evil, but I think it was a pretty genius idea. Pain-Yatta uses the sweet candy he has been filled with for years, to exact revenge on all those who ever raised a stick at him and everyone else in Skylands. He can either barf candy at his enemies or to smack them with his giant lollipop. Either way his foes are in for a sweet surprise. And did you know that he also had an ear for music? Well, not really, but he does make a nice bodyguard and is the favorite escort of the Gecko Chorus. You’ll find that out, when you take on his quest in Level 10 – The Secret Sewers of Supreme Stink.
Bomb Shell – Villain Review
Bomb Shell is a Magic element villain that you will find spinning around on the decks of Level 5 – Chef Zeppelin. Even though he could easily be a fire, or earth type, it’s Bomb Shell’s ability to conjure up magical bombs that defines his Magic element. That reminds me: Did you hear the one about the tortoise and the bomb? No? I don’t know why not? He was famous! He was a real Shellebrity! Unfortunately I don’t think Bomb Shell is going to be a Shellebrity any time soon. The combination of bombs and a turtle might sound like a popular combination, but Bomb Shell is just a little too mediocre to become famous.
Masker Mind – Villain Review
Masker Mind is an undead element villain that you will find haunting Level 6 – Rainfish Riviera. Even though he’s undead, it seems like he relies on a lot of magic to control his enemies. He believes that everyone is entitled to HIS opinion. He’ll make sure this happens through dark sorcery, where he can take control of an enemy’s mind for a spell. He also uses a telekinetic push to keep his enemies at bay. Once you can prove that hypnosis is real then Masker Mind will become even stronger. Even once he has evolved though, you may find that Masker Mind is better left to his own thoughts.
Brawl & Chain – Villain Review
Brawl & Chain is the second angry walrus pirate villain that you will meet on your adventures through Skylands. The first was Brawlrus which we have previously reviewed. This angry walrus pirate though is actually a water element villain as you might expect. He does have chains for arms and sharp hooks for hands so he too could technically qualify to be a Tech villain. But I guess you can’t have almost the same character in the exact same element, that would be too noticeable. You know what they say: No chains, no pain so I guess he does make a good villain with his chain arms and all. You can judge for yourself after you capture him on level 6 – Rainfish Riviera.
Eye Scream – Villain Review
Eye Scream is a mystery element villain that can be captured near the end of the Monster Marsh level of Skylanders Trap Team. Eye Scream will be unable to be trapped until you apply one of the Light or Dark expansion packs to the game. At that point you will discover that you need a Dark Trap to capture Eye Scream. Once trapped you will still need to start the level over again in order to get to Eye Scream’s quest which is also found on the Monster Marsh level. She is a rather creepy female monster who constantly complains about her long hair. It’s a good thing she has that long hair because it’s when she moves it and we see her strange eyeball filled mouth then we all scream for Eye Scream!
Chef Pepper Jack – Villain Review
Chef Pepper Jack is a Doom Raider villain that can be captured on the fifth level – Chef Zeppelin of Skylanders Trap Team. Chef Pepper Jack was once one of the most famous celebrity chefs in all of Skylands. One day he discovered some ancient recipes for evil delicacies. That’s when he turned his thriving restaurant into a formidable criminal empire. He would fly his zeppelin fortress over a village and demand they surrender all of their money. If they refused, he would drop his spicy pepper bombs that would blow up everything. The Golden Queen valued this explosive approach and recruited him to be a Doom Raider. He was perfect for those who like their bad guys extra spicy.
Brawlrus – Villain Review
Brawlrus is a Tech trappable villain that you will be able to capture in the sixth level – Rainfish Riviera of Skylanders Trap Team. Everyone knows that Brawl + Walrus = Brawlrus. But, did you know that Brawlrus doesn’t have any melee or “brawling” attacks? He does however, harness the awesome power of the starfish. He fires a cannon full of damage causing starfish. This damage can be increased by finding his quest shortly after you capture him in Rainfish Riviera.
Buzzer Beak – Villain Review
Buzzer Beak is an Air trappable villain that you will be able to capture on the second level – Know-It-All-Island of Skylanders Trap Team. Buzzer beak may be small, but what he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in courage, helicopter blade, and a good dive bomb attack. In fact, once evolved, his Dive Bomb attack is extremely powerful. If you haven’t given Buzzer Beak much attention, you may want to give him a look and see what the buzz is all about.
