- “Runs away to spawn another day!”
- —Description of Root Runners
- Despite being described as moving most of the time, they only run in Wilikin Village (Real World), Darklight Crypt and Swarm's Heroic Challenge.
- The Root Runners first appeared in the 3DS version of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure in The Wingwarrens, and reappeared in the 3DS version of Skylanders: Swap Force, at Fountain Springs. Though, Root Runners didn't spawn Chompies in 3DS versions, and spitted shrinking projectiles instead.
