- “Oops! Looks like I've dropped you right inside a mine field! So you'll need to be very careful as you make your way through it and try to find the Royal Scepter of Nort. The Trolls will try to stop you though. They really love the Royal Scepter of Nort. That's probably why they stole it in the first place.”
Minefield Mishap is a Heroic Challenge in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders: Giants. It is unlocked by Stealth Elf in Spyro's Adventure. It uses the map of the Battlefield and requires the Royal Scepter of Nort to be collected in under two minutes and thirty seconds. This Heroic Challenge is noted in-game for its very hard difficulty.
At the start of the Challenge, a minefield must be navigated to either go north or south. Taking the north route takes much more time than taking the south route; regardless, once the minefield has been cleared, the Skylander is ambushed by two Troll Greasemonkeys. When they are defeated, the Skylander may proceed and continue through the maze. Barrels may need to be destroyed to evade lines of mines, and Teleporters are located in set areas around the map to aid with mobility. The final section of the maze is a minefield that ultimately leads to the Royal Scepter of Nort.
- When the Skylander arrives in the final section of the maze and after the small cutscene plays, the Skylander may run into a mine nearest to the Scepter and walk through the line of mines to instantly complete the Challenge. Although this requires taking damage, it is a much faster method of completing the Challenge than navigating the entire maze.
