What is Spyro Skylanders Adventure?
Spyro Skylanders Adventure is a unique blend of video game and action figures that was released by Activision in 2011 and has since taken the world by storm, exceeding Activisions vision for the game to become the second biggest selling game in America!
But what are the Skylanders and where did they come from?
It was said that the Giants were the original Skylanders who first defeated Kaos and his machines many moons ago. The Giants battled against the tyrannical Arkeyans for the freedom of Skylands. In a final battle against the Arkeyans, the Giants were shot to Earth as a form of sacrifice, where they've been buried underground ever since. As the years passed, the enormous Skylanders were soon considered as a myth.
The Skylanders have an unbreakable bond with their Portal Masters. Though they are not servants, the Skylanders chose to serve their Portal Master and do so eagerly. Despite the fact that the Skylanders come from different realms and world, each know that it is their destiny to use their abilities to protect Skylands. They are also friends with the Fairies, particularly because fairies can turn treasure into upgrade magic that gives the Skylanders new powers and abilities, including fresh breath.
When a Skylander travels through a portal, it is usual for them to yell out a fierce battle cry when they appear. In fact, every year, there is a contest to see whose battle cry is the loudest; the most frightening, and at best for making milk shoot out from people's noses.
When Skylanders are defeated in battle, they are instantly teleported back home where they can heal and rest.
Spyro Skylanders Adventure
For generations, the Skylanders worked with the Portal Masters in keeping peace and balance in their world, battling the forces of darkness, and protecting the Core of Light.
The Skylanders were previously led by the veteran Portal Master, Master Eon, who was their leader, until The Darkness returned one day. Seeing the incoming threat, Eon called upon six of the Skylanders to prepare for battle as the evil Portal Master, Kaos, returned from his exile to once again attempt to destroy the Core of Light and rule Skylands as its emperor.
By Eon's command, the Skylanders fought valiantly against Kaos's dark forces, but as they were winning the struggle, Kaos released his Hydra, who successfully destoyed the Core of Light in a devastating blast.
Shortly after the Core's destruction, the Skylanders were banished from Skylands to Earth, where they were turned into toys as a result of Earth bearing no magic, and waited for a new Portal Master to find them.
Although Master Eon survived the destruction of the Core of Light, he became a spirit and was unable to fight Kaos and The Darkness, leaving the duty of leading the Skylanders to the new and young Portal Master.
After Master Eon recruited the new Portal Master, the Skylanders made their suprising return to Skylands, arriving on the Shattered Island to save its Mabu inhabitants from a freak tornado that was ravaging their village. The heroes then began their quest to save Skylands from Kaos' tyranny with the new Portal Master guiding them.
After Kaos's defeat in his lair, three of the Skylanders (Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Trigger Happy) returned to the Ruins with the captive Kaos, and Hugo later banished the evil Portal Master to Earth where he was shrunk and turned into a toy.
However, Master Eon hinted to the new Portal Master that the journey with their Skylanders was only the beginning.
The Skylanders are still trapped on Earth, frozen as toys. A few of them have been collected and placed inside displays of a toy store called Super Toy Planet where the toy form of Kaos was placed in.
However, Kaos was broken free of his statue-like state by his Portal Master status, while the Skylanders inside a toy display could do nothing but make idle threats to Kaos.
Meanwhile, the new Portal Master has recovered a Giant, and Master Eon sought them out in order to explain the origins of the Giants, who were the first Skylanders, before sending them on an adventure to save Skylands once again from a new threat.
