“Let the Flames Begin!”
    —Flameslinger's official catchphrase

Flameslinger is an elf archer Skylander in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. He is of the Fire element.



Flameslinger is an elf who has the impression of being a show-off, having put on a blindfold to prove that he is an excellent archer with incredible aim. Despite this cocky image, he possesses a courageous heart, having saved a fire spirit from a watery fate when he was young.


Flameslinger is an Elven archer with incredible aim. In fact, he is so good that he wears a blindfold just to prove it. When he was young, he rescued a fire spirit from a watery doom and was gifted an enchanted bow and magical fire boots that he now masterfully uses to defeat evil throughout Skylands. With the scorched earth he leaves behind, you can always tell where he has been.



Elves are often said to have a sparkle in their eyes, but Flameslinger was born with an entire bonfire. And the fire in Flameslinger's eyes was more than just a handy way of heating the house. It gave the young elf the mystical ability to see incredible faraway places. Wherever fiery flames exist, this remarkable elf can use them as an extension of his very own eyes. Flameslinger soon became the talk of the town, and the neighbouring town, and the town three towns over. But he soon tired of visiting rubberneckers. He wrapped his eyes in a blindfold and slunk stealthily off into the forest. Here, he would practice blindfolded archery by bullseyeing Bomb Fiends with his bow.

Then one day in his mind's eye he saw a drowning fire spirit in a nearby pond. Quicker than wildfire, Flameslinger sprinted to the struggling spirit and saved him from a watery grave. A fiery friendship was instantly formed and the spirit gave Flameslinger two gifts - magic fire boots for lightning quick speed and an enchanted bow that shoots flaming arrows. Soon, Flameslinger was back in the public eye, holding blindfolded archery tournaments and winning everytime. His performance caught the eye of a certain special spectator, Master Eon, and the rest... well, the rest was Skylands history![1]

Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Under Spyro's orders, Flameslinger was assigned with Wrecking Ball to accompany Stump Smash to the Giggling Forest to investigate its sudden change in behavior. When they discovered Glumshanks being half petrified, they came under attack by a Bone Dragon. Flameslinger volunteered to distrate the angry beast while the others carried Glumshanks to Flynn's air balloon, but the elf archer had his bow turned to stone. The escape attempt failed when the Bone Dragon petrified Flynn's air balloon, leaving the Skylanders open for attack. Before the Bone Dragon can finish them off, the beast was driven away by Wrecking Ball's belch attack, allowing the Skylanders to safely send a distress signal which was noticed by Lightning Rod.

Return of the Dragon King

Flameslinger was among the forty Skylanders to fight against Malefor, he along with several other Skylanders were part of the artillery unit, under Buzz's orders they fired at the Malefor, which had no effect. The Dragon King then destroyed most of the Academy, leaving Flameslinger and many other Skylanders unconscious, and had their powers stolen by Malefor.


Flameslinger has the ability to infuse his arrows in flames and launch them at his enemies with his enchanted bow. His magic boots allow him to run at incredible speeds, and leave a trail of fire behind him. When he circles around an enemy while leaving a trail of flames, a torrent of fire erupts around the enemy, burning them.
