Skylanders: Trap Team
As the Skylanders were fighting through The Future of Skylands, Blaster-Tron attacked them with the help of four Brawlruses after they smashed a cluster of Traptanium. He was eventually shut down and trapped.
After his capture, the heroes took him and Tae Kwon Crow to The Golden Desert for their Villain Quests, but not without fighting the Golden Queen's guards along the way. His quest was called "Help Diggs Dig", where Diggs himself explained to the Skylanders that there was some treasure buried under the sand, and needed Blaster-Tron's magnetic abilities to unveil it, probably because the Molekin didn't have a shovel and is completely blind anyway. After completing the quest, he was awarded with coins, Diggs' thanks, and a new outfit.
Blaster-Tron isn't just state-of-the-art technology, he literally is from the future. When the Skylanders traveled forward in time to stop Wolfgang, they ended up bringing back the renegade robot with hopes that they could learn from his advanced circuitry. Eon immediately noticed that he had an actual "Good/Evil" switch that had been set to Evil. After flipping it to Good, Blaster-Tron was completely transformed. Besides going from bad robot to good robot, he ditched his blaster gun in exchange for a laser sword. No one knew exactly why, but as long as he was helping out the cause of justice, the Skylanders were happy. As a bonus, Master Eon noticed that his skill with the blade was second to none, and so he made Blaster-Tron a Sensei for the Knight Class, where he now gives 110% to training his students - which is technically possible because in the future, we figure out how to give more than 100%.
Blaster-Tron can fire a blast of energy at enemies that comes within range. He also has a rocket pack that allows him to fly forward in the direction he is facing.
In Imaginators, his sword has taken the role of his gun, firing lasers and summoning various high tech attacks depending on how much it is charged. He also gained greater control of his rocket pack for more movement, and can now fire slow-moving rockets with electric tethers and force field bombs.

Villain Theme ♫
Blaster-Tron's theme is Transistor by Huw Williams and Samuel Rupert C. Sutton, no longer available in APM Music.
In Imaginators, Blaster-Tron has a different theme called Not Acceptable by KPM.
- He is currently the only fully robotic playable character not part of the Tech element.
- He is one of few Villains who do not resist capture (the others are Brawlrus, Eye Five, Luminous, Krankenstein, and Nightshade).
- He is one of four villains who, upon being captured in a trap, vaguely reference the smell of mustard (the others are Tussle Sprout, Chompy Mage, and Chef Pepper Jack).
- Blaster-Tron breaks the fourth wall in most of his sentences, announcing his transition to the game, pointing out recurring villain dialogue and discussing how his magnetic powers come out of nowhere for his Quest.
- He has a forcefield present when battled as a villain that is absent in all of his playable forms.
- Blaster-Tron and Bone Chompy have the ability to charge off their arenas which mostly lack walls or railings, being the only villains able to defeat themselves without any exploits as they go out of bounds.
- Blaster-Tron and Pain-Yatta are the only non-Doom Raider characters to not have major changes in Imaginators, be it color scheme or element. However, while Blaster-Tron has a different weapon, Pain-Yatta just has a slightly altered lollipop.
- Blaster-Tron is the only villain to have two different theme songs.
- As of Imaginators, Blaster-Tron is the only Light Skylander to have none of his element's signature colors in any part of his design. However, his figure is slightly closer to silver colors than in the game.
- He is the only Sensei with a Sky-Chi in which the primary attack button can be used during the sequence. Also, it drains the Sky-Chi meter much faster every time the primary attack button is pressed multiple times.
- He is the only Sensei that is a hidden boss in Trap Team.
- His Saber Slash ability is probably a reference to the Lightsabers from the Star Wars franchise.
- His Sky-Chi is a play on the expression "Can you believe it?".
- The quote "End of Line" at the end of his Sky-Chi is a reference to the movie "Tron"
- He and the Chompy Mage are the only villain Senseis who share the same voice actor, Alex Ness.
