“The Motion of the Potion!”
    —Pop Fizz’s official catchphrase

Pop Fizz is an alchemist, who is one of the new Skylanders in Skylanders: Giants. He is of the Magic element. His Series 2 counterpart is called Super Gulp Pop Fizz, and his Series 3 counterpart is Fizzy Frenzy Pop Fizz.

Pop Fizz has a red counterpart called Punch Pop Fizz, who is available in the 3DS Starter Pack of Giants and is now available in a single pack. He also has an easter counterpart, Hoppity Pop Fizz who is only available in Skylanders: Lost Islands for a limited time.

In Skylanders: SuperChargers, Pop Fizz is redesigned as a SuperCharger named Big Bubble Pop Fizz.



Pop Fizz is widely known as being a little crazy. The Skylander who puts the mad into mad scientist, he is bubbling over with crazy amounts of enthusiam. And that's before he's glugged from his bonkers beast beaker![1] According to Pop Fizz, the reason he keeps drinking his potion, or soda, is that the effects keeps him on edge, gives him powers, and that it is "soda-licious." He is also one of the few characters who fully understands Double Trouble's language.


Nobody is quite sure who Pop Fizz was before he became an alchemist, least of all Pop Fizz himself. After many years of experimenting with magical potions, his appearance has changed quite significantly. In fact, no one even knows his original color. But it’s widely known that he is a little crazy, his experiments are reckless, and the accidents they cause are too numerous to measure. Understandably, he has had a difficult time finding lab partners, or anyone that even wants to be near him. In hopes of making himself more appealing to others, he attempted to create the most effective charm potion ever — but that just turned him into a big, wild, berserker. Or maybe that’s just how he saw the potion working in the first place...



Pop Fizz is a short and stubby, blue gremlin. At least, he's blue right now, but that could change at any moment. As an alchemist, Pop Fizz spends much of his time making potions, and the rest of his time drinking them. Everyone who has ever met him agrees that Pop Fizz is a little crazy. Actually he's a lot crazy, and the potions he brews up usually have some pretty wild effects. He once created a potion to make himself more charming and appealing to others. Unfortunately, when he drank it, he became a huge angry rage monster. Since then, his potions caused him to change colour, lose his memory and, on more than one occasion, violently explode. Despite this, he always keeps some potion close to hand, not just for the special abilities it gives him, but because it always tastes "soda-licious".[2]

Lightning Rod Faces the Cyclops Queen

Pop Fizz attended the Annual Storm Titan Games with Drobot and Cali to see their fellow Skylander, Lightning Rod, in action. When Flynn's balloon was struck by Rod's stray hammer, Pop Fizz quickly transformed into his beserker form and knocked away any debris that threatened the audience, while Drobot and Lightning Rod saved the balloon's passengers and both Master Eon and the King of the Storm Giants.

Pop Fizz Double Trouble

Pop Fizz and Double Trouble carrying the alchemist's bottles of potions needed for the adventure to Tempest Towers.

Once everyone was safe, Hugo revealed that the Book of Power had revealed the next fragment to the dreaded Mask of Power. Within the stadium, the Skylanders discovered that the Air segment to the Mask of Power has seemingly taken on the form of a Land Whale, which was stationed at a zoo held by the Cyclops Queen at Tempest Towers. Master Eon sent Pop Fizz, Lightning Rod, Double Trouble, Drobot, Cali, and Flynn to the Tempest Towers that lied beyond the Sea of Storms in their mission to claim the Air fragment before Kaos made his move. However before they could depart, Kaos captured Cali, who knew the path to Tempest Towers. The Skylanders gave chase, following Kaos while treking through the Sea of Storms and battling Windbag Djinnis along the way. They managed to get to Tempest Towers before Kaos could, and tricked their way into the Cyclops city by using Pop Fizz's beserker form to pose as a never-before-seen creature for the Cyclops Queen, leaving Flynn and Double Trouble outside to keep a lookout for Kaos.

However after tricking the Cyclops Queen and her husband, Pipsqueak, the Skylanders were found out. While Lightning Rod and Drobot were thrown to the Land Whale's tank to be eaten, Pop Fizz was captured and held prisoner in a cage. To escape from his prison, the alchemist became so excited that his potion wore off, allowing Pop Fizz to return to his normal form and slip through the cage bars to release Lightning Rod and Drobot from the tank.

After Kaos's battle with the Cyclopses, resulting in Lightning Rod hurling the Land Whale far from Tempest Towers, Pop Fizz concocted a potion made from the animals held by the Cyclops Queen that grew Lightning Rod to an enormous size big enough to carry the tower (that was the true Air segment) back to the Eternal Archive. Once there, Pop Fizz celebrated with his fellow Skylanders of their victory, unaware that there was a traitor in their mist revealing the locations to the Mask of Power to Kaos.

Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Pop Fizz was one of the assembled Skylanders who attempted to fight against the rampaging Bone Dragon in the Giggling Forest, but was turned to stone. He was soon returned to normal when the Dragon agreed to un-freeze the petrified present characters. 

The Kaos Trap

Pop Fizz Flynn
Pop Fizz was assigned on a mission with Stealth Elf and Wash Buckler to deliver supplies to the Mabu mining expedition at the Radiant Isles. On their way there, the blue gremlin was with Flynn in the cockpit of the Dread-Yacht, trying to learning how to make s'mores. When the Mabu became under attack by Kaos's Trolls, Pop Fizz quickly transformed into his Beserker form under Stealth Elf's insistence, using his brute strength to attack the Trolls and protect the Mabu. Suddenly, the Doom RaiderWolfgang, arrived during the heat of the battle, causing the Skylanders, including Pop Fizz, to feel threatened and outmatched as they weren't prepared to tackle both a Troll army and a Doom Raider.

Before Wolfgang could begin his attack, the Trap Masters, Snap Shot and Wallop, arrived in time to help their comrades. With their combined efforts, they defeated Wolfgang and drove off the Trolls, saving the Mabu expedition. Both the Skylanders and the Trap Masters were praised by the Mabu leader for their efforts in saving the Mabu, but soon came to notice that the Fork of Infinite Resonance was stolen by the Trolls, causing the Skylanders to ponder on what Kaos was up to.

Skylanders Issue #12

Pop Fizz helped with the Skylander Academy graduation by pouring special punch mix into the courtyard pool for the partygoers.


Pop Fizz can throw his potions at enemies. He has three potions: a green one (which when thrown forms an acid pool on where it lands), a purple one (which when thrown spawns a potion minion that will attack for you), and a orange one (which explodes like a bomb on contact). His second attack is that he can transform into berserker mode if he drinks his potion. Also depending on how you upgrade him, he will have different attacks in berserker mode. And if you make him shake up his potions too much, it will create an explosion. In Skylanders: Battlecast, his potions can be used as spells, though with random results. He can also use cheap and powerful spells, but at great costs, even muting him for the rest of a fight. His signature Gear is the Soda Fountain, which creates spells of an ally's element, and his Special Ability is Strange Brew, randomly creating a spell as well.

  • There is a glitch that can possibly make Pop Fizz summon three big Beaker Buddies at the same time instead of one.

But it must be done while the path, "Mad Scientist", is chosen.
