“Rock and Roll!”
    —Bash's official catchphrase

Bash is a brown rock dragon who first appeared in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. He has a Legendary counterpart called Legendary Bash exclusive to the Toys 'R' Us Legendary Pack. He also has a birthday counterpart that became available on November 2013 in Skylanders: Lost Islands.

Character Development

Bash was originally called Rock Dragon and was one of the first five original Skylanders for the cancelled project, Spyro's Kingdom. During development, he underwent numerous character designs before being finalized into something more specific: Bash.[1]

Background

Personality

Never tell Bash he can't do something. This resourceful, stubborn Skylander will keep on rolling until he's proved you wrong. He never gives up without a fight.[2] Despite his gruff disposition, Bash is very sensitive about his inability to fly.

Biography

Bash spent most of his early dragonhood staring into the sky, watching the flying creatures of Skylands soar amongst the clouds. Determined to join them, he learned how to curl himself into a ball and roll with incredible momentum in a vain attempt to take flight. Over the years, his skin hardened, forming a natural protective armor unlike any other creature. He now thunders through Skylands, leaving a wake of destruction against any who threaten it. Despite his thick skin, he still gets very touchy about his inability to fly.

Story

History

From an early age there was something that set Bash apart. He was a dragon without wings! But Bash wasn't content to sit around feeling sorry for himself. He would curl up into a tight ball and make a terrific take-off. His speed as he careered across the plains was something to behold - and the more he rolled, the rougher and tougher his skin became. Then the dark day came. A huge flying machine was catching Bash's dragon friends in massive nets. Fired up with fury, he curled up and chased it to the very edge of his floating island. There, Bash launched himself like a bouncing bomb and busted through the side of the airship, creating a colossal hole for his friends to escape through. Having witnessed the entire event through his portal, Master Eon was blown away by Bash's courage and loyalty and made him a Skylander on the spot.[3]

During his time as a Skylander, Bash still longed for the ability to fly. One night, he made a wish that he could fly, and without warning, he saw a shooting star fall from the sky and land in a nearby valley. Bash invesitgated the crashsite and saw a gem-like dragon named Flashwing emerging from a large geode that was the falling star. The earth dragon immediately became attracted to Flashwing. But when he approached her, Flashwing attacked Bash, not knowing whether he was friend or foe, sending the earth dragon flying off of the cliff they were on, and ironically fulfilling Bash's wish to fly.

Relationships

Flashwing

Since meeting Flashwing, Bash gets caught moping over her, seeing the gem dragon as his one true love.[2]

Gameplay

Bash uses his spiky tail to slam and strike his opponents away using a 360 degree tailspin. He can also summon rocks to rise from the ground to scramble his enemies. His signature attack is Rock Roll, which involves him curling up into a spiky ball and steamrolling into his enemies.

Trivia

  • Bash was originally called Rock Dragon during production of Spyro's Adventure.[1]
  • Many fans mistake him for being a dinosaur due to his resemblance to an Ankylosaurus (and Triceratops, if he is equipped with the Triceratop Honor Guard Soul Gem power).
  • Over the years, Bash has jumped off cliffs, leapt from airships and even launched himself into the sky from a giant catacult in his attempts at flying. He always makes a painful landing, but he refuses to give up and insists that one day he'll soar like the other dragons.[4]
  • One of his upgrades, Iron Tail, share its name with a Pokémon move.
  • Despite the upgrade description saying he rolls into a ball, Bash rolls more in the form of a wheel, like a Droideka from the Star Wars series.
  • Series 2 Bash has his Iron Tail and Triceratops Honor Guard upgrades, giving him a steel-plated skull and a metal plated tail. 
  • His catchphrase is the base of Wrecking Ball's ("Wreck-n-Roll!").
    • This also applies to Snap Shot's ("Croc and Roll!").
  • In the Skylanders: Eons Official Guide, it states that he is a Tech Skylander.
  • He and Ghost Roaster both have spikeballs attached to them.
  • Bash's quote, "Rock it to me!" is a play on for, "Sock it to me!"
  • In Swap Force, his Triceratops Honor Guard Soul Gem does change his appearance when he's wearing a hat.
  • He slightly resembles a rhino roller from Crash of the Titans.
    • He also bears a slight resemblance to Doedicurus with Postosuchus and Styrocosauras features.
  • Bash is the first Skylander to have Triceratops-like features (the second being Tri-Tip).
