“Buzz Off!”
    —High Five's official catchphrase

High Five is a dragon/dragonfly hybrid who is one of the Frito-Lay Skylanders for Skylanders: Trap Team. On September 22, 2014, he was announced the winner of the Frito-Lay contest. He was part of his own giveaway before his public release in Spring 2015.

Character Development

High Five was named by Phylicia Nakamoto from Elk Grove, California, as part of a naming contest held by Frito-Lay.[1]



High Five is full of energy and is super fast. When danger calls, he is the first to fly into battle.[2]


High Five is one of the most skilled sky racers of all the dragonflies. But as the fifth son of the Royal High Flying Dragonflies, he was not allowed to enter any of the racing tournaments that took place each year because of his age. Instead, he was forced to watch from the sidelines as his four older brothers competed for the coveted Trophy of Sparx, which legend has said holds magical properties. One year, during the biggest racing event of the season, High Five learned that the Troll Racing Team had stolen the valuable trophy and were going to use the race to cover their escape. He quickly took action, jumping into the race and using his amazing flying skills to weave and dodge his way to the front of the pack, where he caught up to the trolls and brought them down. For his actions, High Five was given the Trophy of Sparx. Even more importantly, he was made a Skylander, where he now helps protect Skylands from any evildoers.


High Five can fire a stream of Poison Pellets from his mouth, even in rapid fire. These Poison Pellets can leave behind Poison Clouds that damages enemies when upgraded further. As his secondary attack, High Five can dash across the ground with his super speed and leave enemies spinning while damaging them. When further upgraded, High Five can perform a powerful Fly Slam attack that can be done in the air, and even suck enemies in while charging it. While charging up the attack damages him, he also releases apples during the charge, picking them up restores some of the HP lost.

Despite having no flight upgrade in the game, High Five is able to fly, but only for a short while.

Character Trailers



  • When first revealed for the Frito Lay contest, High Five's image url revealed that his original name was Buzzerker.
  • His catchphrase is shared by one of Bumble Blast's battle cries.
  • Although the "Speedy Slammer" path's "Slam Apples" ability mentions that High Five releases apples that heal him while charging up "Fly Slam", he actually releases these apples even without this upgrade as soon as he purchases the "Buzzerker Overdrive" skill. "Slam Apples" only increases the number of apples released.
  • Despite having no flight upgrade, High Five can fly for a short time by double tapping the jump button.
  • High Five and Thrillipede (after choosing the "Mighty-Morphosis" path) are the only Life Skylanders that can fly.
  • Eye Five's name is a play on High Five's.
    • Coincidentally, they are both introduced in Trap Team.
    • Despite this, neither have five fingers; Eye Five only has four fingers (counting his thumb) and High Five only has three on his hands and feet.
  • His battle cry "Full steam ahead!" is similar to Sonic Boom's catchphrase "Full Scream Ahead!"
  • Like Fist Bump, he is named after a friendly hand gesture.
  • High Five is the second Skylander with an ability that can drain health, which is Fly Slam.
    •  The first Skylander was Ghost Roaster, who uses Ectoplasm mode.
    • If either Skylanders overuses these abilities, they could get knocked out in the game hub.
  • High Five is the second Life Element dragon Skylander, after Camo.
  • High Five's voice actor is Tom Kenny, who is best known for voicing Spyro in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!Spyro: Year of the DragonSpyro: Enter the Dragonfly and Spyro: Reignited Trilogy.
