The Time of the Giants is the first level in Skylanders: Giants. In this chapter, you go back in time to when the Arkeyans still ruled Skylands, and you use the Giants (or additional Skylanders) to free the Mabu from the evil Arkeyan Conquertron.

    • In the Ancient Mines, jump off the ledge through the cracked stone using a Giant to go to The Hungry Depths and get the treasure chest.

    • As soon as you enter the Windy Work Site, drop down the ledge.

Winged Sapphires

  • Use a Giant to destroy the gate at the Forgotten Path.

Luck-O-Tron Wheels

  • Lucky Wheel of Experience
    • After clearing the Chompy Pit in The Hungry Depths, use the first two bounce pads ahead to climb the ledges. Walk to the right and you will see a boulder. Use a Giant to remove the boulder. Drop back into the Chompy Pit. After clearing the Chompy Pit a total of 3 times, you will be rewarded with a Lucky Wheel of Experience.



  • It is unknown what became of Gigantus after he jumped down into a mine shaft.
  • In early development of the game, Time of the Giants instead used the theme from Sunrise Towers, one of the Battle Arenas.[1]
  • In the Hungry Depths, Shroomboom can use his Self-Slingshot to launch himself through the enemy gate and out of the Chompy Pit. This requires extreme precision, but it allows the player to achieve in-game times that would usually not be possible.[2]
