“A Troll in a jetpack. Now THAT'S a threat.”
    —Villain Vault

Threatpack, formerly known as Professor Nilbog, is a troll who is one of the trappable Water villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He is the head of the troll secret base that houses their super secret rocket, which was needed for the Skylanders to reach the Skyhighlands during "Operation: Troll Rocket Steal".

After sending several waves of Troll Warriors, Lob Goblins, Chill Bills, and Trolling Thunders to stop the Skylanders, Threatpack tried to fight them himself. However, his recklessness proved to be his downfall, as he was blown out of the air and trapped.

He returned as a SuperVillain racer in SuperChargers and Imaginators, piloting a Sky vehicle fashioned after his jetpack.

  • In the Skyhighlands, if you use the turrets using Threatpack, the bullets are replaced with Threatpack's missiles (making it a little easier and dealing more damage).
    • You can also use his missiles in previous chapters where you are using turrets in Flynn's Ship, such as the aerial fights in Chef Zeppelin and Mystic Mill.
    • They can also work in the Mirror of Mystery at the end of the level where you are using the turret in Moonbeam's ship while fighting off against the Evilon and the evil Mabu.
      • There is a glitch during the fight against evil Flynn when you attack him while having Threatpack in the turret, causing his missiles to not deal any damage.
  • Threatpack is one of the two villains who had a name before changing to their villain names (the other being Tae Kwon Crow). However, unlike Tae Kwon Crow, he made up his current title himself.
  • In his artwork, his jetpack is powered by what seems to be some red flame, but in the game it uses water.
  • He is the second playable water character to have a jet pack (the first is Gill Grunt).
    • Coincidentally, both of their jetpacks are powered by water, and with Deep Dive Gill Grunt, both can be used as offense.
  • Nilbog is Goblin backwards.
  • There is a glitch on some versions of Trap Team; when you accept Threatpack's quest, he will evolve before the quest is done.

    • They both have slight German accents.
    • They are the only villains who see themselves as "heroes".
    • Neither of them are aware of their ultimate fate before being trapped. They don't even say lines to try to persuade the Portal Master to capture them.
