“Making Waves!”
    —Flip Wreck's official catchphrase

Flip Wreck is an anthropomorphic dolphin who is one of the Frito-Lay Skylanders for Skylanders: Trap Team.

Character Development

Flip Wreck was named by Noel Foster from Clearwater, Florida, as part of a naming contest held by Frito-Lay.[1]

Background

Personality

Flip Wreck might be the fearless protector of Bottlenose Bay and a hero to his dolphin friends but, don't worry, he doesn't let it go to his head.[2]

Biography

Most of the dolphins of Bottlenose Bay spent their days playing in the waves. However, Flip Wreck was different. Always the adventurous one, he took it upon himself to be a self-appointed protector of his undersea world. One day, while exploring an underwater graveyard of shipwrecks, he came across a massive Ice Viking ship that was still intact. Suddenly, a huge crew of Ice Vikings burst out from inside and began leading an attack on the unarmed dolphin residents. Flip Wreck took off at once and quickly fastened together armor, shield, and sword using pieces from the nearby wrecks. He then single-handedly defeated the Ice Vikings, who retreated never to be seen again. For his heroic actions, Flip Wreck was made a Skylander and now turns the tide against evil in Skylands!
