“Chop 'til You Drop!”
    —Chopscotch's official catchphrase

Chopscotch is a short and young[1] Undead ghoul and a Sensei in Skylanders: Imaginators, belonging to the Smasher Battle Class.

Character Development

Chopscotch was an odd one during production, in which the initial concept - that of a small skeleton girl with a giant axe - stayed very similar to the final design. Though her axe's size was alterered and tribalistic skull etchings were added to even out the cuteness of her design, little else needed adjustment in the end.[2] During development, her name was Grim Cleaver.[3]



Chopscotch loves speaking in rhyme and wasn't bothered when the other ghouls of the Underworld made fun of her short stature.


The only thing that ever mattered to Chopscotch was mastering her weapon of choice, the giant axe, while rocking out to her favorite musical idol, Wolfgang. It never bothered her that she was short in stature or that all of the other ghouls in the Underworld laughed at the way she spoke in rhymes as she made up her own lyrics to Wolfgang’s guitar jams. So when Wolfgang joined the villainous Doom Raiders, she was devastated. But instead of letting it destroy her, she chose to put her axe skills to good use, and fought Wolfgang and his Moon Goons when they attempted to curse her entire town during an evil concert. Her willingness to stand up to her long time hero came as a surprise to everyone, and soon all of the villagers were speaking in rhymes in her honor. Soon after, she met Master Eon, who was so impressed at her fighting abilities and positive outlook that he recruited her as a Sensei for the Smasher Class. Now she teaches new Skylanders how to fight... and how to rhyme!


Chopscotch can swing around her giant axe and use its weight to her advantage, being able to spin with it for long periods of time. She can also detach her head and duplicate it, creating a helper that will attack along, and conjure hopscotch titles, creating a blast of flashy Undead energy when she reaches the end.
