This article is about species from the main game canon. You may be looking for the Fire Viper from the TV spinoff series.

Fire Vipers are colossal, snake-like monsters in the Skylanders series. For thousands of years, they are the preferred minions of Dark Portal Masters everywhere alongside the Hydra, the Sand Serpent, the Two-Headed Spider, and the less popular One-Legged Spider. They made their debut in Skylanders: Swap Force.


Fire Vipers possess the ability to breathe fire and blast molten spiked fireballs. They also hold the ability to fly. Their main weakness are the large Evilizer Crystals that grow on their heads and from inside their bodies that appear to be their life source.


Skylanders: Swap Force

A hundred years ago, several Fire Vipers were summoned by a dark figure to attack the Ancient Elementals atop Mount Cloudbreak, but the SWAP Force Skylanders were able to stop them. 

In the present, one Fire Viper was summoned by Kaos to prevent the Skylanders from saving the Ancient Terrasquid, but it was eventually defeated.
