“I am Arbo, son of Barbo, child of Larbo, spawn of...”

Arbo is an Ent who helped the Skylanders discover the Eternal Life Source in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.


Arbo possesses the power to grow enormous plants, such as the giant beanstalk that acts as a lift to Treetop Terrace and Falling Forest. He can also communicate with non-sentient plants.


Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Upon being revived, Arbo points the Skylanders towards the Seeds of Life to locate the Eternal Life Source and summoned a beanstalk that takes the player to Treetop Terrace and Falling Forest. After a group of sheep attempted to eat the apples on the Life Trees, Arbo seemingly obtained a dislike of sheep.

After the events of Spyro's Adventure, Arbo taught the future Trap Master, Bushwhack, many secrets of the forest under his tutelage and gifted the tree elf with an enchanted axe.

Skylanders: Trap Team

Arbo makes an appearance in Skylanders: Trap Team near certain Life elemental gates. He also makes an appearance in the Skaletones Showdown.



  • He is named after the Latin term 'arbore', which translates to "of trees".
  • His voice is similar to Ed Wynn.
  • At some point, Arbo was going to be a Skylander, but the idea was scrapped.
    • He also went through several designs, which resemble Bark Demons and the scrapped Woodenem.
    • As an NPC, however, he was used to test figure printing, and several of them can be found in Toys For Bob's offices. [1]
  • Arbo is the first character voiced by Tom Kenny, the second being Stink Bomb, and the third being Shield Shredder.
  • In Spyro's Adventure, Arbo says that he is the son of Barbo, and Barbo was the child of Larbo. However, in Trap Team, he says that Barbo was Larbo's brother.
