“So strong, he fears nothing except termites.”
    —Villain Vault

Krankenstein is an Evilikin who is one of the trappable Air villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He was named after his creator Dr. Krankcase.

During the battle to regain control over Mystic Mill, Krankenstein appeared to battle the Skylanders. Despite the Evilikin's efforts, his allies were defeated, and he quickly followed suit. Krankenstein was then trapped, although he enjoyed the experience.


As a trapped villain, Krankenstein's main attack constantly rotates his oversized arm's blades like a rotor, damaging enemies. His secondary attack makes his arm snap at enemies, grabbing and holding smaller enemies completely. If you press the secondary attack again, he will launch the grabbed enemy at other targets, doing damage to both of them.

During his Bossfight, he only uses one attack, when he whirls around with his arm extended.
