- “The Saw is Law!”
- —Chain Reaction's official catchphrase
Chain Reaction is a burly, metallic gold skinned humanoid with a beard made of chainsaw teeth that reaches to the top of his back, metal teeth, and beady, green featureless eyes. His armor consists of a black cap with a golden gear-like kabuto crest with shoulder guards, leg guards and arm guards, orange metallic shoes, and as well as black garbs with the symbol of the Tech element on the back and the signature golden Sensei belt. His weapons are two identical sword shaped chainsaws.
Chain Reaction appears to very vain and conceited, constantly complimenting himself with adjectives such as "handsome" and "charming". However, he doesn't seem to brag too much on himself unlike certain Skylanders such as Lightning Rod and Ro-Bow, always remaining noble and humble when around others.
No matter what he was doing, Chain Reaction always prided himself at being the best at it. Despite his impressive skills, though, the two chainsaw swords he regularly wielded tended to scare most people away. As a result, Chain Reaction was often lonely. But that all changed the day he witnessed a group of young dwarves getting picked on by an evil gang of ninja rats, the dwarves looked at Chain Reaction as their hero, and followed him everywhere he went. While Chain Reaction appreciated the company, he knew that he could not protect them forever, so he decided to teach them all he knew so that they could one day protect themselves. Sometime later, Master Eon heard rumors about dwarves from a small village who had successfully defended themselves against a large army of ninja rats thanks to the teachings of a great master. He knew at once that he needed to find Chain Reaction and make him a Sensei.

- His name is a term for a physics and chemistry phenomenon, where a reactive product or byproduct causes additional reactions to take place without extra input; this is similar to knocking down a line of dominoes.
- He is the only male Swashbuckler Sensei.
- He is also the only Swashbuckler Sensei without an in-game variant.
- Although Chain Reaction's voice actor isn't sure about his voice role a few years after the game's release, it is possible he was voiced by Charlie Alder.
