Personality

Protective to the extreme, Bumble Blast defends all wildlife, not just his beloved bees. He places himself in danger to defend others.[1]

Biography

Bumble Blast started life as a humble beehive in the Radiant Mountains, where for ages the bees made the most sweetest, most magical honey in all of Skylands. When Kaos heard about this "super honey", he wanted all of it for himself and soon launched an attack on the peaceful Bees. But when his minions arrived to plunder everything the bees had created, they were met by Bumble Blast. He alone had been home to the bees and considered himself their protector. Using the power of the magic honey, Bumble Blast valiantly battled the evil minions, who felt his powerful sting that day. Afterward, Bumble Blast roamed Skylands as a protector of nature, where he soon joined with the Skylanders.

Story

History

Bumble Blast was an ordinary beehive that resided in the Radiant Mountains and was home to the bees that created the most sweetest and magical honey in Skylands for centuries. Unfortunately this caught the attention of Kaos, who wanted all of the honey for himself. He sent his minions to steal it, only for them to discover an angry beehive who was brought to life by the bee's magical honey. Bumble Blast was in no rush to give up the honey and made sure that the minions had a sting in their tails that day. He soon joined the ranks of the Skylanders and afterwards, became a protector of nature.

Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Bumble Blast was one of the assembled Skylanders who attempted to fight against the rampaging Bone Dragon in the Giggling Forest, but was turned to stone. He was returned to normal when the Dragon agreed to un-freeze the petrified present characters.

Trivia

  • He, Swarm and Hot Dog are the only Skylanders with bee related moves.
  • His "beezooka" slightly resembles the Beeshooter from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
    • Although his upgrade descriptions say that his "beezooka" shoots bees, the insects that he shoots sting more than once so it is more likely that he shoots wasps or hornets.
  • In his character trailer, there is an error in which the symbol for the Earth element appears next to his name instead of the Life element.
  • His catchphrase, "The Perfect Swarm", might be a play on The Perfect Storm.
  • He is voiced by David Sobolov, who voices Depth Charge in Beast Wars, Shockwave in Transformers Prime and Lobo in Young Justice and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
  • He shares some battle cries with Swarm.
  • He and Shroomboom share many similarities with each other: they're both Life element characters, they both use a projectile weapon, they both have a LightCore version, and they are both first available in a battle pack.
  • He shares similarities to Zook, as they are both plant-like creatures who are part of the Life element and wield bazooka-based weapons.
  • Even though Bumble Blast is shown to be right-handed, in his Soul Gem preview, he is holding his beezooka in his left hand. He may be ambidextrous.
  • Bumble Blast's personal quest is named "Not the Bees!", referencing the remake of "The Wicker Man".
  • One of his quotes is a reference to the idiom 'barking up the wrong tree'.
