“Clear the Air!”
    —Stink Bomb's official catchphrase

Stink Bomb is a martial arts ninja skunk who is one of the Life SWAP Force Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. His Swap Force Ability is Sneak.



Resilient Stink Bomb didn't let his master's disappearance put him down. He developed the martial art Kung Fume and wandered Skylands teaching its whiffy ways. Like all Life Skylanders, Stink Bomb prefers to keep his feet on the ground.


Stink Bomb studied martial arts under one of the greatest ninja masters in history, who believed that surprise was the key to finding your true self. Thus, his master would constantly jump out and frighten him, hoping that it would scare Stink Bomb into finding his innermost strength. On one such occasion, Stink Bomb was so surprised that he instinctively released a cloud of vapor so pungent that it caused his master to disappear and never return. With this newly discovered ability, Stink Bomb developed his own form of martial arts known as Kung Fume, and wandered the land teaching it to all those who wished to learn. It was not long before the news (and smell) of this new form reached Master Eon, who sought out the young ninja at once.


The Kaos Trap

Stink Bomb, Spyro and Ninjini were battling a group of Drow when Hugo called upon them to help Stealth Elf, Pop Fizz and Wash Buckler at Radiant Isles. Unfortunately they weren't able to assist as they were busy handling the Drow situation.


Being a skunk, Stink Bomb can really "light the fuse" on his enemies, releasing a cloud of smelly vapor which damages enemies and renders him invisible. He can also throw ninja stars and perform a devastating One-Inch Palm which knocks back and poisons his foes. With certain upgrades, he can launch nauseous acorns at enemies. Nauseated enemies turn green and take damage over a short period of time.

Character Trailers



  • Stink Bomb is similar to Stealth Elf, notably due to both Skylanders being ninjas, turn invisible and possess similar clothing.
  • He's also the second ninja Skylander (first being Stealth Elf, third being Lob-Star).
  • Every time his top half is placed on the Portal of Power, an ancient Japanese flute can be heard playing and then the gong is banged at the end.
  • His voice actor, Tom Kenny, is best known for portraying SpongeBob SquarePants, The Ice King from Adventure Time, Iron Man in The Super Hero Squad Show, and Doc Ock in Ultimate Spider Man.
  • He and Night Shift are seen in most of the commercials of Swap Force so far, including the intro of the game. They're always seen swapping with each other.
    • During the credits, Tom Kenny's name was slightly misspelled as "Tom Kenney".
    • Tom Kenny also voices Arbo and Shield Shredder. Coincidentally, they are all Life-elemental creatures.
  • He and Trap Shadow are the only Sneak SWAP Force Skylanders. However, Stink Bomb can stay invisible longer than Trap Shadow even after pressing the second attack button once.
  • Every time Stink Bomb disappears while wearing a hat, his headwear vanishes as well.
  • Whenever his bottom half gets upgraded, the color of his belt changes, which is a reference to the martial arts ranking.
  • Even though Stink Bomb's bottom half in figure form has a black belt, he actually starts with the yellow one until his legs are fully upgraded.
  • His One-Inch Palm ability is a pun of Bruce Lee's One-Inch Punch.
  • His Acorn Accuracy also resembles Stump Smash's When Acorns Attack.
  • While battling Evil Glumshanks, the boss is unable to locate Stink Bomb while he is invisible. However, Evilized Whiskers is able to locate Stink Bomb even if he is unseen.
  • When collected, his Soul Gem states that his top half's ability is Tri-Star Technique which allows him to throw three stars at a time. This ability is also shown in his trailer video, in actuality his Soul Gem ability only makes his stars have a higher critical hit ratio. It is possible that this upgrade was changed during late development.
  • In Trap Team, "Sporting Stripes" now makes any Swap Force Skylander using Stink Bomb's lower half move faster. Also, he can now stay invisible much longer even while attacking, but only after "Stealth Skunk" is purchased. His upper half's attack, "One-Inch Palm," can also now be used at a far more rapid rate.
  • In the Stinky Commercial and Countdown Commercial, Stink Bomb uses a different tone while speaking, which doesn't even sound like Tom Kenny at all.
  • In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Stink Bomb was mentioned by Hurricane Jet-Vac when he is talking to Buzz at the Skylanders Academy.
  • His only appearance in Skylanders: Battlecast is in one of Wash Buckler's cards called "Stink or Swim".
