“Be Afraid Of The Bark!”
    —Barkley's official catchphrase

Barkley is one of the four Sidekicks in Skylanders: Giants. He is the miniature version of the Life GiantTree Rex. As a Mini Skylander, he is in the Nintendo 3DS Starter Pack of Skylanders: Trap Team along with the Trap Master, Gusto.



Barkley will do anything to protect Skylands from dark magic. Mess with him and you'll be barking up the wrong tree! He loves and respects nature as much as his mentor, Tree Rex.[1]


Within the Skylands, a realm of infinite possibilities, there is in fact an alternate reality known as the Skylands Miniverse. Everything there is smaller, including the Skylanders. The Skylanders Sidekicks come from that Miniverse and have traveled to the Skylands to meet their regular-sized alter egos and tag along with them on adventures.

The Skylander Minis started off as regular "Sidekicks", assisting the Skylanders on many exciting adventures. And what they lacked in size they more than made up for in courage. Ultimately determined to become full-fledged heroes, they trained at the Skylands Academy - honing their powers and skills until they were ready. Now, they stand side by side with their full grown counterparts, ready to defend Skylands against Kaos and his evil minions.
