“Born to Burn!”
    —Eruptor's official catchphrase

Eruptor is a lava monster Skylander in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. His Series 3 counterpart is called Lava Barf Eruptor.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Eruptor is redesigned as a SuperCharger named Lava Lance Eruptor.

Background

Personality

Eruptor is a hot head with a strong dislike for anything evil, so whenever something bad threatens his world, he quickly erupts... quite literally. When he isn't getting angry at the forces of Kaos, he's blowing a fuse and exploding with rage about smaller things, such as creaky floorboards and people not covering their mouths when they cough.[1] With his hot temper, Eruptor never shies away from speaking his mind. He also has a case of indigestion, prone to burping up a pool of molten lava whenever he feels nauseous, nervous or startled. A flaming force of nature, Eruptor still blows his top from time to time. He doesn't suffer fools gladly, but tries to keep his fiery temper in check.[2]

In Skylanders: Imaginators, Eruptor is portrayed as a nervous lava monster who is afraid of a lot of things, such as bugs and Rats.

Biography

Eruptor is a force of nature, hailing from a species that lived deep in the underground of a floating volcanic island until a massive eruption launched their entire civilization to the surface. He's a complete hot head -- steaming, fuming, and quite literally erupting over almost anything. To help control his temper, he likes to relax in lava pools, particularly because there are no crowds.

Story

History

Eruptor is a hot-headed lava beast who hails from the sweltering underground caverns of a volcanic island. Here, in the suffocating heat, arguments often boiled over. And lava creatures always argue. So it was no surprise when a ferocious fight broke out at a lava pool party. But this was no small squabble or shouting match. The fury of hundreds of fuming lava creatures created catastrophic pressure, until... KABOOM! The volcano exploded, scattering disgruntled lava creatures across Skylands.

The residents of Skylands had never seen lava creatures before and many misunderstandings followed. Lava creatures are not only sullen, stubborn and easily angered, they are also very hard to understand. Several villages were burned as a result. But the Skylands atmosphere had a quite different effect on Eruptor. He unclenched his jaw, took a long breath of cool air and felt a lifetime of rage subside. Nowadays, Eruptor is considered calm and sensible - by lava creature standards, at least. Still, trolls try his temper and Kaos causes crankiness, leading to Eruptor to as his name suggest - ERUPT! For this reason, Master Eon was pleased to invite him on board... although he tends to keep his distance.[3]

The Machine of Doom

Machine of Doom Illustration2

Eruptor, along with Gill Grunt and Spyro, being pelted by flying fruits and vegatables.

Eruptor was one of the Skylanders who attended the special concert of Gill Grunt singing as a way to celebrate their latest victory over the forces of darkness (even though the lava monster had insisted that he would rather do something more fun – like boiling his own head). After Hugo and Flynn arrive to tell them of the Mabu Market being attacked by flying sheep, Master Eon sent Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Eruptor to investigate. There, they were attacked by flying sheep and thrown vegatables, which were later revealed to be the work of invisible trolls lead by a Spell Punk who were searching for an artifact called the Chattering Key, Kaos is after.

Upon discovering that the Chattering Key is an artifact used to unlock a tomb that contains an ancient Arkeyan weapon, Eruptor joins Spyro, Boomer, and Gill Grunt with Flynn on a quest to retrieve the key that lies in the Forest of Fear. At the Forest of Fear, Eruptor falls victim to the Fungus Rings of Despair, and his worst fears came to life as hallucinations, being trapped in cold and his eternal flame having gone out. He was later freed by Spyro, and the lava monster continues his trek with the other Skylanders. When the Skylanders retrieved the Chattering Key, Kaos appears, having captured Flynn, and forces them to give him the Key in exchange for Flynn's life. Kaos then uses an incantation to summon a tomb to the Pyramid of Just Rewards that contains the Arkeyan weapon, the Machine of Doom.

With the help of the Chattering Key, the Skylanders enter the pyramid through the other side and reach the Machine of Doom before Kaos does. Boomer, fascinated by the Machine, tries to take control of it, but fails as it begins breaking apart and the pyramid was starting to crumbling. It was soon revealed that it was all Kaos' plan from the start, that he knew that the Skylanders would attempt to seize the Machine of Doom, which is really a trap made by the Arkeyans to capture those who attempt to control the Machine to destroy the Core of Light, and have the heroes buried alive. However, Kaos' plan fails as Boomer managed to control the Machine of Doom and uses it to escape the crumbling pyramid with the other Skylanders, and the Machine breaks apart. Upon their victory, Gill Grunt begins to sing, much to Eruptor's annoyance. 

Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

When mega-sized animals started terrorizing around Skylands, Eruptor was sent to Flowering Fields to save it from a five-meter-long caterpillar. But Kaos, who claimed to have renounced his evil ways to battle evil-doers, have chased off the gigantic worm before Eruptor dealt with the problem.

Skylanders: Eruptor Meets the Nightmare King

Eruptor, Grim Creeper and Slam Bam were quickly dispatched by Master Eon to answer a cry for help in The Frozen Seas. They came upon an expedition of Ents being terrorized by Kaos's Cyclopses lead by Bloodshot and quickly defeated the horde, saving the Ents. During the struggle with Bloodshot, the Cyclops Gazermage managed to escape with a coin of Nefarion, the previous owner of the Mask of Power. The leader of the Ent expedition, Professor Splinters, lead the Skylanders to an underground world that was frozen over. Eruptor then came face-to-face with another version of himself being encased in ice.

Erupto Grim Slam Bam

Eruptor, Slam Bam and Grim Creeper pinned by the cave-in.

Master Eon teleported to their location and explained that Eruptor will eventually go back in time and become frozen in ice. As the old Portal Master recalled the history of the Nightmare King, Nefarion, history began to change around them as Professor Splinters turned into a servant of Kaos. Eruptor was about to attack the evil Splinters when Master Eon teleported them back to his citadel and explained that Kaos went back in time and changed the past. With Master Eon's help, Eruptor, Grim Creeper and Slam Bam were transported to the distant past when Nefarion reigned over Skylands. Once there, the three Skylanders came under attack by the Forest of Fire and were saved by the remaining Portal Master, Wizbit. However they were suddenly subdued by the weary Mabu, who was tricked by Kaos into believing that the Skylanders didn't arrive to help him stop King Nefarion.

Wizbit revealed to Kaos his creation, the Big Bad Ice Bomb, which he intends to use to freeze King Nefarion and end his evil reign. However the evil Portal Master deceived Wizbit by delivering him to King Nefarion and revealing the existence of the Bomb. Kaos then sent a rocky cave-in upon Eruptor, Slam Bam and Grim Creeper to bury them alive before retreating. Thanks to Slam Bam's ice sculpture, they were able to keep the rocks at bay for a while. Grim Creeper quickly shifted into his ghost form and was able to phase through the rocks to find help at Nefarion's castle. After a series of events, both Eruptor and Slam Bam were teleported out of the cave-in by Wizbit in time to confront Kaos and King Nefarion.

During the struggle, the Skylanders were able to retrieve the Mask of Power and allow Wizbit to scatter the pieces across Skylands. However there was still the threat of the Big Bad Ice Bomb going off. While King Nefarion fled, and Kaos and Glumshanks teleported back to the future, Eruptor sacrificed himself by swallowing the Big Bad Ice Bomb in order to buy his friends time to escape. With the timeline restored, Master Eon transported the group, including Wizbit, back to the present. Both Master Eon and Wizbit then used their power to unfreeze the Eruptor that was first discovered frozen in ice, the same Eruptor who went to the past to stop Kaos. Upon being revived, the lava monster burped up the remains of the Big Bad Ice Bomb which was revealed to be the Fire segment to the Mask of Power. However their victory was far from over, as Master Eon confirmed from the Book of Power that Kaos will indeed succeed in obtaining the full Mask of Power and wear it.

Trigger Happy Targets the Evil Kaos

Eruptor was one of the Skylanders whose powers were stolen by Kaos when he gained the Mask of Power. The lava monster's usual red body became blue as his lava veins became frozen, causing him to shiver. Eventually the Skylanders were able to defeat Kaos, regain their powers and destroy the Mask of Power.

Skylanders: Giants

Eruptor, along with Spyro, Gill Grunt, Stealth Elf, and Stump Smash, are still frozen as toys on Earth and were put in a display inside a toy store called Toy World. They were few of the Skylanders who witnessed Kaos breaking free of his statue-like form due to his power as a Portal Master. When Kaos noticed the frozen Skylanders and taunted them, Eruptor and the other heroes agreed with Stump Smash when the tree creature angrily declared that if he could move, he'd be 'dropping the hammer' on Kaos right there and then. Afterwards, the present Skylanders could do nothing but watch as Kaos returned to Skylands with the use of a nearby Portal of Power.

Relationships

Slam Bam

Despite their elemental differences, both Eruptor and Slam Bam are firm friends, united in their fight against the forces of the Darkness.[4]

Avril

As shown in Imaginators, the lava monster and the frost elf don't exactly get along. Avril often tries to talk sense into Eruptor, though seemingly with little success. Likewise, Eruptor thinks that many of Avril's ideas are crazy. The extent of their relationship suggests that they may not like each other at all, like when Eruptor called Avril "frost face" and Avril accused Eruptor of setting a frozen dungeon on fire (which he denied).

Gameplay

Eruptor has the power to hurl and spew fireballs of molten rock, and unleash a lava plume all around him like a volcanic eruption.

In Skylanders: Battlecast, Eruptor can control magma with a larger range of abilities. With energy cost halfway through, he can create a variety of effects by opening thermal vents and heat waves; notably, he can also turn Gear into Molten Metal by using Metalmorphosis and submerging it in lava. His Special Ability is Scorching Fumes, increasing his team's spell damage, and his signature gear is a Magma Core, that creates fire spells.
