Light is one of the two new elements that debuted in Skylanders: Trap Team. This element is associated with the colors yellow, as bright and saturated as it can get, and white.


The Light and Dark were elements that were even unknown to Master Eon himself. However both were cut off from Skylands when the Core of Light was destroyed, leaving the Skylanders of the Light and Dark elements stranded in their respective realms.[1] They would later return to Skylands when the immense explosion that destroyed Cloudcracker Prison broke open the very foundation of Skylands, officially revealing the presence of the two new elements.

Light Skylanders, such as Knight Light, possess a strong sense of justice. However while there are heroes of Light, there are also villains.


Light elemental Skylanders manipulate the light as their main method of attack, and like their Dark counterpart make use of celestial bodies such as stars. In toy form, they either stand on pedestals that resemble white, multiple edged stars or one made from yellow-tinted crystals.

In Skylanders: Trap Team turret challenges, Light Skylanders have the ability Supernova, which instantly destroys enemies in a flash of blinding light. In Kaos Doom Challenge, they can summon a shining pillar of crystal with a laser firing device, which can be upgraded to concentrate a shining aura and a sun-like appearance.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Light-aligned Portal Master Powers include a summonable light sphere minion, temporary health regeneration and a bright flash of light that stuns enemies. Those are distributed in several conditions, and the names are as follows:

  • Lucent Lasers
  • Flashy Entrance
  • Shining Strike
  • Radiant Recovery
  • Luminous Desperation
