    —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.

Background

Personality

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]

Biography

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.

Trivia

  • Night Shift is the first (and currently only) Skylander to have the ability to return to life after getting defeated.
  • Night Shift, (without any charms/hats/power-ups) has the least health out of all SWAP Force Skylanders.
  • In his magic moment, a boxing match bell ring is heard.
  • His teleporting differs from that of Hoot Loop, as he can only teleport a set distance in front of him, while Hoot Loop can choose where he teleports. However, Night Shift can teleport faster than Hoot Loop, especially in Teleport Zones.
  • He and Stink Bomb are seen in most of the commercials of Swap Force so far, including the intro of the game. Ironically, they're always seen swapping with each other.
  • Both Night Shift and Roller Brawl are vampires. However, he is the only one whose attack involves biting his enemies.
    • Incidentally, the way he bites is similar to a recent fiasco at the 2014 FIFA World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay, where Luis Suarez bites Giorgio Chiellini.
  • Night Shift's voice actor, Maurice LaMarche, is best known for his voicework in Futurama as Kif Kroker and The Brain in Animaniacs and Pinky And The Brain.
  • If you look closely in the Just Like Swap Force trailer, Night Shift's fangs are slightly drenched with blood.
  • As stated in his Short Cut, Night Shift is older than school itself.
  • He can heal himself with his Vampire Bite by biting sheep.
  • Like most vampires, he speaks with a stereotypical Transylvanian accent.
  • So far, Night Shift is the only male vampire in Skylanders.
  • When swapped with the bottom half of Free Ranger, it creates Night Ranger, which shares a name with a rock band.
