"Blinded by the Light!"
    —Flashwing's official catchphrase

Flashwing is a gem dragoness who is one of the Skylanders in Skylanders: Giants. She is of the Earth element.



Flashwing knows just how beautiful she appears and also how deadly she can be. She often tries to steal the spotlight from her fellow Skylanders, but her kind heart always shines through in the end.[1]


Flashwing's true origins are a mystery. But her first appearance came when Bash made a wish that he could fly and looked up to see a shooting star streak across the sky and in a valley below. In the centre of the glowing impact crater was a large, brilliant geode - which suddenly cracked open to reveal Flashwing. Bash may not have soared that day, but his heart sure did, because Flashwing was beautiful... and lethal. As soon as Bash stepped closer, the gem dragon turned towards him. Not knowing if he was friend or foe, she blasted him off of the cliff with a full force laser pulse from her tail! Perhaps Bash flew that day after all.



It's like the old song says, "When you wish upon a star, you'll probably get blasted by lasers." Well okay, those might not be the exact lyrics, but that's precisely what happened to Bash when he made a wish that he could fly. The moment he made the wish, a shooting star streaked across the sky and crash-landed not far from the awestruck rock dragon. When Bash went to investigate, he found a large precious stone which cracked open as he approached. Out popped the most incredible creature Bash had ever seen - a beautiful, blue and purple gem dragon named Flashwing. Bash immediately fell in love. Flashwing, on the other hand, couldn't tell if Bash was friend or foe, so - just to be on the safe side - she blasted him off a cliff. Since then, Flashwing has gone to be become a valuable member of the Skylanders, and although she has since said sorry to Bash, he's careful to keep his distance just in case.[2]



When Flashwing first encountered Bash, she couldn't tell whether he was friend or foe and blasted him off a cliff. Sometime after she became a Skylander, she apologized to Bash after the incident. It is currently unknown if Flashwing is aware of Bash's feelings for her.
