“A walking time bomb. Literally!”
    —Villain Vault

Grinnade is a bomb who is one of the Fire villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. During the events of Operation: Troll Rocket Steal, Grinnade appeared after the Skylanders entered a troll weapons lab. His attempts to blow the Skylanders up failed miserably and he was quickly incapacitated and trapped.

In Skylanders: Battlecast, he fights the Skylanders once again, attempting to stop them from reaching Chef Pepper Jack in the Fire Realm.


Being a bomb, Grinnade has the ability to blow himself up if given time to wind up, and spawn smaller Grinnades to attack for him.

Battlecast Abilities

In Battlecast, he is able to do other attacks by winding up, such as running through enemies at great speeds and chomping down on them with his metal teeth. The more he winds up, the more powerful those attacks will be. Once he has wound up 3 times, he will explode and deal lots of damage to the enemy team.

Grinnade has 250 HP and 40 power at base level.
