“Burn to be Wild!”
    —Fire Kraken's official catchphrase

Fire Kraken is a dragon warrior who is one of the SWAP Force Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. He is of the Fire element. His SWAP Force Ability is Bounce.



A desire to help others burns in the heart of this young, hot-footed warrior. He likes playing with fire, and is less likely to burn out.[1]


Raised on a small island surrounded by a vast ocean of fire, Fire Kraken was the swiftest, most agile warrior his tribe had ever seen. And when a fleet of Fire Troll ships arrived to steal the legendary Burning Heart, a huge elemental crystal that fueled the fiery seas, Fire Kraken leapt into action. Using a magical staff to control his natural ability to wield fire, he set the mighty ships ablaze, forcing the trolls into a hasty retreat. Having saved the Burning Heart as well as his homeland, Fire Kraken soon joined the Skylanders, where he knew his skills would help those in need.


Fire Kraken uses his magical staff to set enemies ablaze; his staff can be upgraded for a charged attack. He can throw out fireworks to damage enemies and can be upgraded for a bigger boom. His unique power is the ability to turn into a chinese dragon!
