Wrecking Ball was once a tiny grub worm about to become the main ingredient in an old wizard’s cauldron of magic stew. But when he was dropped in, the wizard was shocked to see the little grub devour all of the soup and emerge from the cauldron 20 times larger and with a long, sticky tongue. The poor old wizard was even more surprised seconds later, when Wrecking Ball proceeded to swallow him whole. Eventually he ran, quite literally, into the powerful Portal Master Eon, who was intrigued by how he came to be and impressed with his unique abilities.
Wrecking Ball - Glow in the Dark was a special variant of Wrecking Ball from Spyro's Adventure. It was one three Glow in the Dark figures to be randomly found on shelves along side the regular character. The figures are completely painted in a glow in the dark paint. Like all special painted variants of Skylanders, the characters will not appear as "Glow in the Dark" in the game. The other Glow in the Dark figures that were part of the Spyro's Adventure set are: Zap - Glow in the Dark and Warnado - Glow in the Dark.
