“She'll take you for a spin.”
    —Villain Vault
“The Spirit is Willing!”
    —Bad Juju's Sensei catchphrase

Bad Juju is a witch doctor spirit who first appeared as one of the Air villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. She later appeared in Skylanders: SuperChargers, as one of the non-playable villain racers in the Racing Mode, driving an unnamed oddly-shaped vehicle with a duplicate of her skull on the front.

In Skylanders: Imaginators, Bad Juju has traded a life of crime to become a Sensei, training Imaginators of the Swashbuckler Battle Class with a new appearance and accompanied by her son Juju Junior.


Bad Juju loves to sleep, and those that disturb her must weather the consequences.[1] Despite being mean to a fault, she soon changed her villanous ways to become a better role model for her son; this is reflected in gameplay with Bad Juju playing defensively while near her son and agressive while he is away. Meanwhile, Juju Junior is cheerful and always excited, eager to help his mother.


Skylanders: Trap Team

Bad Juju was first encountered in the Lair of the Golden Queen. When the Skylanders were battling their way through the Queen's homestead, they inadvertantly awoke Bad Juju from her slumber, enraging her. Her attempts to subdue them with her magic failed and after her defeat, she was promptly trapped.

Skylanders: Imaginators

Just like her name suggests, Bad Juju had always been bad. From her humble beginnings as a witch doctor, where she put curses on her patients instead of curing them, to being the Golden Queen's right-hand sorcerer, she had spent her entire life as a villain. Being captured by the Skylanders didn't do much to change her attitude either. At least, that was the case until the day she conjured up more then she bargained for - a son named Juju Junior. That was when she finally decided it was time to come to change her lifestyle. She didn't want to raise Juju Junior inside a prison thinking that his magical mother was a criminal. So she asked Master Eon to give her a chance to be a hero instead. As luck would have it, Eon was looking for a Swashbuckler Sensei who could help train Imaginators the value of being good. Not bad for Bad Juju.


Bad Juju can summon storms and whirlwinds to suck in enemies and call upon lightning strikes, and she can also teleport as seen in her introduction. As seen in unused Skylanders: Battlecast card art, Bad Juju can also use mind control, with her victim sporting eyes with similar design to hers.[2]

In Imaginators, Bad Juju no longer fights alone, now with her son Juju Junior and protective wind spirits at her side. With two lightning-channeling Whirling Blades, Bad Juju takes full advantage of her detached head, keeping her focus on enemies as she spins for attacks and channels the wind; while Juju Junior can curse enemies, and release static electricity when eating lightning. For their Sky-Chi, Bad Juju creates a lightning tether between her and her son, electrifying enemies that he runs into.

    • She and Eye Scream and the only female villains that are mistaken with male pronouns.
      • Coincidentally, they are both voiced by Kimberly Brooks.
  • In game, she is slouched over but she straightens when she uses her attacks, as well as spinning her skull around.
  • She is briefly seen in Stormblade's backstory in Dive, Dive, Dive!, being chased by the Sky Slicer.
  • Bad Juju speaks in a Jamaican accent.
    • Bad Juju is voiced by Kimberly Brooks who also voices Eye Scream and Echo, well known for her voice acting roles as Buena Girl from Mucha Lucha! and Jasper from Steven Universe.
  • She has upside-down versions of the Air symbol engraved into, or part of her eyes.

    The eye-like structure on Bad Juju's skull, as seen in both designs.

    • Stranger still, Bad Juju has an eye-like appendage on the back of her skull, which in Imaginators glows greenish. It is unknown if it's her true eye or just another engraving, as in Trap Team it was entirely gold and flat.
  • On the official Skylanders website, she is mistakenly listed twice.
  • Bad Juju, Hood Sickle and Grave Clobber are the only Undead creatures to not be from that element.
    • Oddly, she is the only one of them to not change elements in Imaginators.

  • Bad Juju is the third character to fight with the help of family members, after Sonic Boom and Eye-Brawl.
  • Her catchphrase is based on the Bible verse Matthew Ch.26:41, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak", meaning that despite the individual's intention, the body might be a limitation. Bad Juju using only the first part of the quote might represent that she overcame her villanous acts to be a better mother to Juju Junior.
