After the Skylanders restored power to the Arkeyan Armory, they must pilot an Arkeyan War Machine to navigate their way through the Halls of Molten Fire. Only one enemy Arkeyan War Machine is been encountered and needs to be defeated in order to move on. The machines are impervious to lava, as seen when you are walking through the Halls.
In Skylanders: Giants, the player can control again a War Machine in Secret Vault of Secrets, haunted by the Machine Ghost. They also appear as enemies in the same level and later seen in the background of Bringing Order to Kaos.
- The Machine of Doom in the novel of the same name, has the same design as the Arkeyan War Machines.
- Arkeyan War Machines are usually red, but there are least two blue Arkeyan War Machines, which are owned by Ermit and Mags.
