- “Protect and Surge!”
- —High Volt's official catchphrase
High Volt is a very dedicated commander, even willing to take orders from Buzz. He is also extremely observant and intelligent, not letting any evil being out of his sight and will get any possible information out of them. Like all Tech Skylanders, High Volt is fascinated by machinery.
High Volt was once the commander of a special security force that was in charge of patrolling the border between the known regions of Skylands and the mysterious uncharted region known as the Outlands. From atop the Shockspire Tower, their security headquarters, High Volt vigilantly monitored any strange activity beyond the border, knowing that Kaos and his minions were always up to no good. Over the years, he had defended Skylands against countless Greeble attacks, Troll uprisings, and even a few evil food chains that were attempting to expand. But on a recent patrol mission into the Outlands, High Volt discovered a heavily guarded construction site, where Kaos' minions appeared to be building a colossal Doom Station of Ultimate Destruction! Realizing at once that all of Skylands was in danger, he raced to the Skylanders Academy to inform Master Eon and joined the Skylanders in their fight to stop it!

- It is unknown what High Volt looks like underneath his armor.
- He resembles a S.W.A.T riot trooper as his Static Spear resembles a shock stick and his Shock-It Shield resembles a riot shield. This may be a reference to law enforcement as his backstory says that he has been protecting Skylands as a police officer would.
- His catchphrase is played on by the phrase, "to protect and serve," which is often utilized by police officers.
- He is voiced by Josh Duhamel, best known for playing William Lennox from the live action Transformers series and voicing Captain Flynn the sand pirate from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
- High Volt's Static Spear resembles a plug while his Shock-It Shield resembles an electrical outlet complementing his element.
- Due to his origins as a Light Skylander early in development, he still has light-related puns on his upgrades' names.
