“That amazing feeling of defying gravity! That, my friend, is something only we feel.”
    —Ring of Heroes Relationship Description

Air is one of the main ten elements in the Skylanders series. The vast and mysterious element combines the others in a number of interesting and unusual ways.[1] Colors associated with the element are cyan, and occasionally white and azure.


Air surrounds us constantly. It clings to our lungs when we breathe. It is with us all the time, and yet we can neither see it nor feel it. Unless, of course, it wants us to. The skies above, around and often below, Skylands are infinite, meaning the Air Element may hold a limitless number of secrets that weren't yet aware of. This makes the Air element one of the most mysterious of them all.[2]


Skylanders of the Air element have balanced fighting styles. Characters in the game who are associated with the element of Air use the manipulation of wind and weather to their advantage against their foes. They have a strong advantage against Skylanders who are associated with the element of Earth in the Battle Arena, but are not very strong against Fire Skylanders.

In Skylanders: Ring of Heroes, Air is weak to Fire and Magic, and strong against Life and Earth.

Air-based Skylanders also stand on a pedestal made of clouds when they are in their toy form.

In the turret challenges in Skylanders: Trap Team, Air Skylanders have the special ability Tornado, which immobilizes enemies. In Kaos Doom Challenge, they can summon a large fan which charges up an eletric blast, which can be upgraded to have multiple lightning containers for shots that spread to nearby enemies.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Air-aligned Portal Master Powers include a damaging wind aura, an eletric pulse and a temporary Speed boost.They occur in many conditions, and the name are as follows:

  • Cyclonic Shield
  • Stormy Entrance
  • Tempest Strike
  • Tailwind
  • Stormy Desperation

  • In Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, Air-based Skylanders are one of the three elemental characters who do not build a bridge when opening their elemental gates, the others being Water and Fire. Instead, they teleport through a swirling vortex of wind.
  • Both Sonic Boom and Warnado have the Air elemental symbol on their heads.
  • Gusto's the only one who has it on his belly.
  • None of the Air Skylanders made an appearance in the trailers and commercials for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. However, Jet-Vac appears and speaks in the trailers for Skylanders: Giants, Skylanders: Swap Force and the the first trailer for Skylanders: Trap Team.
  • In Giants, the music from Stormy Stronghold plays in the Air elemental zones.
  • In Skylanders: Battlegrounds and some websites, the element is sometimes erroneously referred to as "Wind" instead of "Air", such as the Element of the Day.
  • In the 3DS version of both games, every Air Skylander can glide or hover.
  • While most Air Skylanders can fly for a limitless amount of time, only Jet-Vac and Swarm can only fly for a short period of time and then return to the ground. Lightning Rod is the only one that cannot fly as an attack, though he can still travel over water. Swarm however, can fly infinitely if he goes over water.
    • Jet-Vac is the only Air Skylander in Giants who can't go over water.
  • This element has more quadruped Skylanders than any other element.
    • Before SuperChargers, all the female Skylanders in this element were quadrupeds.
  • This element has the least variants out of the original eight elements.
  • None of the Air or Tech Villain quests are mini-games.
  • This element has more female villains (Dreamcatcher and Bad Juju) than any other element.
  • Lightning Rod is so far the only Air Skylander that does not stand on the base, instead the clouds are his lower half.
  • Oddly, most of the Imaginator color schemes are named after icy and oceanic winds, powers relating to Water, possibly refering to wind currents.
  • This and the Fire element are the only elements to have only one Eon's Elite Skylander.
