Bruiser Cruiser is a former troll-boxing champion who is one of the playable Tech villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. This former troll-boxing champion has a wicked one-two punch... and a very large mech suit that mimics his every move.
Upon sighting the Skylanders, Bruiser Cruiser pilots his mech suit and throws two Troll Warriors towards the Skylander's path. He is encountered behind a fenced wall shortly after the Skylanders drove away the Chompy Mage. Despite his mech suit assisting him, Bruiser Crusier was brought down and trapped.
- "Let's get it on!"
- "Time for some pummeling!"
- "Come on, Skylander, put 'em up!"
- "Oh come on, just give me a rematch!"
- "Is it too late to say I'm sorrrryyyyyyyy...! Huh."
- "Where am I, over? Wherever it is, this isn't over... over."
- "Just so long as I can punch something, I'm happy."
- "Time to punch IIIIIINNNNN!"
- "Roger that!"
- "The winner by a knockout, Bruiser Cruiser!"
- "You got the 411 on this, Skylander?"
- "I can't believe I got to meet the Skaletones! I've been listening to them on the radio forever!"
- "Nice little place! I'm guessing it's not cool to punch stuff here huh?"
- "Did you capture Chompy Mage? A-and his puppet too? That's the one you should watch out for!"
- "Roger that good buddy. You've got Bruiser Cruiser on the horn here." - Quest
