“Roll with the Punches!”
    —Night Shift's official catchphrase

Night Shift is a vampire boxer who is one of the SWAP Force Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. He is of the Undead element. His Swap Force Ability is Teleport.



Night Shift can come off a bit grumpy, due to being an Undead character. He values boxing, and is commonly considered by others as old-school. Whenever he hears the sound of a boxing bell however, he goes into a wild frenzy, punching anyone and anything around him. Night Shift always plays by the rules, so when the Skylands Boxing Federation banned Teleportation, he had to give up the sport he loved.[1]


From high up in the gloomy Batcrypt Mountains, Night Shift was a full-fledged baron and heir to a great fortune. But one day, he decided to leave it all behind to pursue his dream as a prizefighter. It wasn’t long before Night Shift became the undefeated phantom-weight champion of Skylands, famous for his massive uppercut and for having once bitten an opponent in the ring. Unfortunately, a rule change made teleportation illegal and Night Shift was forced to give up his belt, officially ending his career as a boxer. Crestfallen over being disqualified from a sport he loved so dearly, his spirits picked up when he was sought out by Master Eon, who told him that his skill as a fighter could be put to great use as a member of the Skylanders.



Bouncer Night Trigger Happy

Bouncer, Night Shift and Trigger Happy fightin a group of Drows while discussing about Blades.

Night Shift was the voice of reason among the veteran Skylanders consisting of Bouncer and Trigger Happy. When Blades was showing signs of ruining the mission to stop the Machine Magus, Night Shift convinced an irritated Bouncer that the young dragon would learn from his mistakes, but the former boxer hoped that he wasn't making a large mistake himself. Tensions rose when Blades knocked out the leader of a group of Drow who would've told the Skylanders where to find the Machine Magus. Night Shift and Bouncer scolded Blades for his actions and tried to explain to the young dragon about the value of being in a team. However, Blades shrugged off their words and claimed that he didn't need anyone's help.

When the armored dragon went off to face the Machine Magus on his own, Night Shift, Bouncer and Trigger Happy followed suit after realizing that Blades may be fighting a losing battle. They managed to rescue Blades before Magus could finish him off, and with their combined efforts as a team, the Skylanders defeated the Drow. After the mission, Night Shift's sound judgement came true as Blades apologized for his behavior and the Skylanders officially welcomed him into the team.
