Kaos' Minions are evil duplicates versions of known Skylanders (with the exception of the Hydra) that Kaos created to use them to battle the Skylanders who attempt to retrieve Eternal Sources. There are thirteen total known minions. In the skirmishes for an Eternal Source, the minions are stronger when they're fought alone but when all three of the respective elements come out, the single minions are easier to beat.
Kaos' Minions are found at the end of the chapters Leviathan Lagoon, Lava Lakes Railway, Creepy Citadel, and Falling Forest. All minions appear one last time (and for the Hydra the first time) in the final battle in the Lair of Kaos.
In Skylanders: Giants, some of the evil doubles make minor appearances in specific Elemental Gates as boss battles. Because the game now has difficulty settings and several Skylanders had gameplay changes, they can prove a greater challenge than before.
