“Bombs Away!”
    —Boom Jet's official catchphrase

Boom Jet is a sky surfer who is one of the SWAP Force Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. He is one of the Air element. His Swap Force Ability is Rocket.



Boom Jet is a complete daredevil, convinced that he always has to be the best as what he does and can seem full of himself at times. Luckily, he's as brave as he is boastful.[1]


No matter what Boom Jet did, he always had to be the best. He could be seen day and night above his home in the Billowy Cloudplains gunning his engines and performing daredevil maneuvers as he trained to become the best sky surfer in all of Skylands. Unfortunately, Boom Jet never had a chance to compete for the championship because a day came that changed his life forever. The Darkness had come. And with his town on the verge of being completely consumed by the ominous evil force, Boom Jet took action. Using his incredible flying skills, he raced from house to house, rescuing all of the citizens and carrying them to safety… just before The Darkness destroyed his homeland. It was then he realized the protection of Skylands was more important than personal glory, so he sought out Master Eon to offer his services to the Skylanders.

Character Trailers



  • Boom Jet's voice actor, Roger Craig Smith, is known for his voicework of the video game character, Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • Boom Jet and Doom Stone are the only two SWAP Force Skylanders has the first name that rhymes.
  • He slightly resembles a NFL quarterback.
  • Boom Jet is one of the few Skylanders to have "Boom" in his name (others include Boomer, Sonic Boom, Ka-Boom, Boom Bloom and Shroomboom).
  • Even though Boom Jet is never seen getting off of his riding propeller rocket, some of the other SWAP Force Skylanders' top halves are capable of doing that with his bottom half momentarily after performing their attacks (specifically ones with melee attacks).
  • When paired up with Fire Kraken's bottom half, then activating 'The Big One', and then 'Go Long!'. (don't throw the bomb). When Boom Kraken comes back down after the Big One, he should have a blue bomb instead of a red one.
  • He and Bomb Shell both say "Bombs away!"
    • Coincidentally, they are both explosion-based characters neither of the Fire nor Tech elements.
  • If you swap Doom Stone's top half onto Boom Jet's bottom half, you get Doom Jet, which, coincidentally, shares it name with Kaos's signature vehicle.
  • On the versus screen, Boom's fur is colored light tan and his helmet light blue and white, instead of his signature.
  • The name of Boom Jet's bottom half "Jet" is the shortest of all the SWAP Force's bottom halves, having only three letters.
  • An Awakened form version of Boom Jet was leaked in Skylanders: Ring of Heroes, but he never appeared in the final game.
