- “The Mane Event!”
- —Trail Blazer's official catchphrase
Trail Blazer is a red-skinned unicorn with black hooves. While a typical unicorn has a pointy horn on its head, Trail Blazer's seems to be a metal piece that spews with flame. Most of his torso and head are covered in bronze armor with the exception of his muzzle, ears, and yellow eyes with black pupils. His tail and mane are entirely made of fire.
Trail Blazer is a hot-tempered unicorn, being set ablaze when he saw anything unfair. However he also possesses a competitive spirit, which in one case causes him to discourage others.
Trail Blazer was always hot tempered, especially when he saw anything as being unfair. One day, he came across another unicorn that was trapped in a net. But it wasn’t just any unicorn. It was the mythical Unocorn – a magical creature with a Churro Horn that sprinkled enchanted cinnamon throughout Skylands. Trail Blazer freed it at once. Soon after, the Dark Wizards who had set the trap returned, and were very angry to find their dastardly deed had been thwarted. But Trail Blazer was much more fired up – for it turned out the spicy cinnamon from the Churro Horn had somehow rubbed off on him and mixed with his elemental fire. So he was literally set ablaze with fury! He then ran fiery circles around the wizards, forcing them to flee and never return. After realizing his newfound fury could be used to fight evil everywhere, Trail Blazer sought out the Skylanders, who immediately welcomed him as a member.
Trail Blazer, along with Fist Bump and Fling Kong, served as the final opponents in the Legendary Tournament. The trio of Skylanders taunted and discouraged Déjà Vu, who made it to the Finals, by claiming that she was out of their league and that the finals were only for Skylanders who can "handle heavy combat". As the final round began, Trail Blazer teamed up with Fist Bump and Fling Kong to defeat Déjà Vu, not wanting her to win so that they can be only ones left to battle for the champion title amongst themselves. In the end, all three Skylanders underestimated the Magic Skylander, who used exploding duplicates to surround Trail Blazer, Fist Bump and Fling Kong and knocked them out. Déjà Vu is crowned the new Legendary Champion, and Trail Blazer apologized to her for his behavior along with Fling Kong and Fist Bump.
