“Don't cross Cross Crow!”
    —Villain Vault

Cross Crow is one of the Water villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He is a notorious treasure hunter that is always in hot pursuit of Skylands’ most legendary artifacts... and a good key-lime pie.


Skylanders: Trap Team

Cross Crow battled the Skylanders in Time Town flanked by a group of Buzzer Beaks, BirdBrains and Cuckoo Clockers. He was eventually overpowered and trapped.

After the Skylanders rescued Kaos from Wolfgang's grasp and before they pursued the werewolf 10,000 years into the future, they brought the avian hunter back to Time Town for his Villain Quest with Tessa and Whiskers, called "Skylands' Biggest Fans". She explain to the heroes that the local birds were not receiving enough wind to fly, and she needed Cross Crow's assistance to activate them so the birds could take flight again. After fighting through several enemies, Cross Crow succeeded at his task and was subsequently awarded with Tessa's thanks and a new outfit.

Full Blast

At an unknown timeframe, Cross Crow frequently botched a Mabu village's attempts in using their Elemental hot air balloon using his flying crow chariot and an army of Corn Hornets, seeing their attempt at honoring the Skylanders as an insult. When Spyro and Jet-Vac attempted to intervene, they were quickly dispatched, causing the crow to declare that flawless victory as "Cross Crow Day". When Jet-Vac helped the Mabu rebuild their balloon once again, Cross Crow returned to destroy it once and for all, but Spyro arrived with Jet-Vac's new armor and weaponry just in time, allowing them to defeat the crow and force him to retreat with a good amount of singed feathers.
