“Mind Over Matter!”
    —Blastermind's official catchphrase

Blastermind is a Magic Trap Master who appeared in Skylanders: Trap Team.



Blastermind is very attuned to the feelings of others and tries hard to help his friends with their problems whenever he can.[1]


Blastermind was once the "hide and sheep" champion of the Sardonic Mountains, where he and his friends played regularly. But when he was about to set a new Skylands record, the ground collapsed and Blastermind fell into a deep, mysterious cavern filled with shimmering crystals. As his friends circled the hole up top, they suddenly found themselves face to face with a dangerous Ham Dragon, who had felt the rumble of the collapse. Down below, Blastermind felt helpless. But fortunately, the cavern was filled with Psionic Power Crystals once used by the Ancients to amplify their thoughts. When the crystals "heard" Blastermind’s worried thoughts about saving his friends, they found him worthy – and bestowed upon him awesome psionic powers, which he used to get out of the hole and mentally blast the circling Ham Dragon. Soon after, Blastermind joined the Skylanders as part of the Trap Team, using his new Traptanium Psionic Helmet to fight evil everywhere!


The Psionic Power Crystals had granted Blastermind incredible Psychic powers, such as levitating himself, as well as creating powerful blasts of brainwaves. He also has telekinesis to levitate and smash his foes against the ground, as well as shoot energy spheres that slow down his foes. His Soul Gem allows him to use his psychic powers to solve Lock puzzles.

Character Trailers



  • Blastermind is voiced by Wally Wingert, who is best known for his roles on Family Guy and the Red Almighty Tallest on Invader Zim. He also voices Verl and Threatpack.
    • Coincidentally, Richard Horvitz, the voice of Kaos also worked on that show, and Blastermind resembles Kaos somewhat.
  • Blastermind and Head Rush are the only two Trap Masters with Traptanium attached to their headgears.
  • He and Short Cut are the shortest Trap Masters in height.
  • The Traptanium crystals on his helmet are the same shape as the base of Traps.
  • In-game, the Traptanium crystals on his head are crooked, but in artwork and figure, they are straight.
  • He doesn't get any money if you use Lock Puzzle Psychic on a Lock Puzzle. However, in Skylanders: SuperChargers, he can perform his Soul Gem ability on any Lock Puzzle, whether they are on treasure chests or doors.
  • He resembles Megamind from the movie of the same name.
  • When driving in SuperChargers, he steers telepathically.
  • Blastermind's italian catchphrase is "La Mente Batte La Materia!", which means the same and translates just slightly different.
