“The Luck of the Claw!”
    —Scratch's official catchphrase

Scratch is a winged sphinx who is one of the new Air Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force.



Scratch is a natural explorer, having investigated the crystal mines of her mountain home for days on end. She's still adventurous to this day.[1]


High in the peaks of Cats Eye Mountain sits a towering city of crystal and gold that can only be reached by creatures of the Air Element. It was here that Scratch spent her youth soaring playfully in the clouds or exploring the endless number of crystal mines. One day, an army of Pirate Greebles arrived in a fleet of airships, looking to steal ancient magic crystals buried deep in the mountain. Donning specially made armour, Scratch led an epic battle against the pirates, using her incredible fighting skills to defend the crystals and the city. Tales of her heroism soon made their way to Jet-Vac, who traveled to Cats Eye Mountain and recruited Scratch to the Skylanders.



Born in a city of crystal and gold atop Cats Eye Mountain, the young Scratch loved soaring through the sky and searching through the many gemstone mines. Her idyllic life was shattered when a band of Pirate Greebles invaded, plotting to steal the magical gems that lied deep inside the mountain. Donning her golden armor, Scratch led the counter-attack against the invaders and fought them off, saving the city and catching the eye of Jet-Vac, who invited her to join the Skylanders.

Skylanders: Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Scratch and Flashwing were assigned by Spyro to search for Master Eon at Molekin Mine when the old Portal Master was kidnapped by Squirmgrub, who was an agent of Kaos. However, without a Portal Master to operate the Portals, it took long for the two Skylanders to reach their destination.

Rift into Overdrive

Under Knight Light's command, Scratch participated with the other Skylanders in defending Skylanders Academy from Kaos and his armada.

Character Trailers



  • Because she resembles an sphinx, she resembles Nefertimon, a Digivolution form of Gatomon from the Digimon franchise.
  • Her catchphrase is a pun on the saying "the luck of the draw".
  • Scratch's voice actress, Kathryn "Kat" Cressida, is also the voice actress of Dee Dee from Dexter's Laboratory during Seasons 2 and 4.
  • Scratch is one of the few Skylanders who are able to heal themselves without eating food (others include characters like Wrecking Ball, Stealth Elf, Camo and Slobber Tooth).
  • One of her upgrades, Whirlwing, alludes to whirlwinds.
    • It also happen to be a pun on another Air Skylander, Whirlwind.
  • Like Sunburn and Flashwing, Scratch doesn't possess a Flight upgrade despite having wings, although she does fly while performing her attacks.
  • In her magic moment, Scratch briefly chases after a moving laser pointer, a common trait shared by felines who love chasing after moving shiny objects.
  • Scratch and Swarm are the only Air Skylanders without a blue colour scheme.
  • She is currently the only quadruped female Skylander to have visible teeth.
  • She, Flameslinger, and Freeze Blade are the only Skylanders that wear masks over their eyes.
