- “Ready, Set, Glow!”
- —Astroblast's official catchphrase
Astroblast is a curious type who won't back down from a fight. He's always prepared to protect people and relics from danger. 
While on a secret mission in troll territory, Astroblast crash landed on a remote island where he stumbled upon an ancient relic not seen in thousands of years - a legendary Rift Engine. These magical machines were believed to have the power to travel through the portals between Skylands and other worlds! Shortly after the discovery, an army of trolls appeared on a nearby canyon ridge and quickly charged toward Astroblast. Knowing that the Rift Engine would be very dangerous in the wrong hands, he pulled out his pulse laser and prepared to defend the relic against the incoming horde. After an epic shootout, the trolls fled in defeat. When Astroblast then brought the relic back to his ship, the Sun Runner, it surged with power and a hologram of Master Eon appeared. Eon thanked him for saving the Rift Engine and beckoned him to return it to the Skylander Academy. Astroblast accepted the invitation and was made a Skylander shortly thereafter.
Astroblast can use his special class EZ 9000 laser gun to shoot enemies; the laser blasts bounce off walls and objects. He can also throw out space rocks; when he shoots a space rock, it floats up in the air and fires lasers in a wide area below it before crumbling to pieces. His third attack, gained through the Starsault upgrade, allows Astroblast to kick back enemies that get too close directly in front of him, and he can do this many times with very little delay between each kick. This combination of moves allows Astroblast to deal heavy damage from a distance, concentrate damage on a small area, and quickly knock back enemies that get too close before firing again.
Unfortunately Astroblast is very fragile due to his low health and armor, meaning that players should be careful and take care when playing as him.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers Racing, Astroblast is true to the style of classic Advanced class kart drivers. His Top Speed is maxed out to the highest possible for a driver, his Acceleration is great, yet his Handling is only sub-par. His Firepower may only be decent, and his Armour might be really good, but Astroblast's true strength is his high-speed prowess.
As a SuperCharger, he has access to the vehicle mods. When paired with his Sun Runner, he gains an incredible boost to his Top Speed, which, when combined with the Sun Runner's already high Top Speed, means that this is the fastest Sky Vehicle + Supercharger combination possible. His Acceleration and Handling also receive good boosts while his Firepower and Armour only receive minor boosts.

- "Thanks. Nothin' to it, though... as long as you're me."
- "You don't recognize it? This ship did the Kettle Corn Run in less than 12 minutes."
- "That's just the kind of stuff you can expect from a guy like me."
- "Guts is my middle name, Buzz -- right after "Danger"."
- "Ha ha ha. Not too shabby, I agree. And thanks for recognizing my skill."
- Astroblast is the only Light Skylander introduced in SuperChargers.
- One of his quest quotes references Star Wars, with him talking about the Sun Runner in a similar manner to how Han Solo talks about his ship, the Millennium Falcon.
- Additionally, Astroblast mentions something called the Kettle Corn Run and how the Sun Runner cleared it in 12 minutes, referencing the Kessel Run and how the Millennium Falcon cleared it in twelve parsecs.
- He is the second of at least four Skylanders with the ability to avoid being defeated (only in his Nova Hopper path and if his Supernova upgrade is purchased) by normal upgrades. The first is Night Shift, while the other two are Double Dare Trigger Happy and Crash Bandicoot.
- He is the first Skylander whose name starts with an "A". The three others with this distinction are Ambush, Air Strike and Aurora.
- The Solar Field upgrade in Imaginators gives Astroblast +20 Armor.
- Astroblast is voiced by Neal McDonough, known for his portrayal of Lieutenant Lynn "Buck" Compton in Band of Brothers and Vincent Sofel in Paul Blart Mall Cop 2.
- The triangular shape protruding from his pulse laser resembles a prism; this is fitting, as prisms are tools that can either refract light, or break up white light into its constituent spectral colors (aka, the colors of the rainbow).
- Astroblast has similarities to Gemini Man from Mega Man 3.
- Their primary weapons are lasers that bounce off walls (Solar Flair from Astroblast, and Gemini Laser for Gemini Man).
- Astroblast and Gemini Man also have astronomy motifs in their designs (Astroblast resembles an astronaut and many of his quotes and upgrades are puns on space exploration, while Gemini Man was, alongside the other Robot Masters in the game, meant to be a space exploration/mining robot and is named after a constellation).
- Astroblast's head slightly resembles Gemini Man's helmet.
