“Silent but Deadly!”
    —Stealth Elf's official catchphrase

Stealth Elf is an elven ninja who is one of the playable Skylanders in Skylanders series. Her Legendary counterpart is Legendary Stealth Elf, who is a Toys R Us exclusive. She has a Series 3 counterpart called Ninja Stealth Elf.

Stealth Elf is redesigned as a SuperCharger in Skylanders: SuperChargers. She is called Super Shot Stealth Elf and is part of the console Starter Pack.



Stealth Elf, like all elves, adores nature. She is considered to be a guardian protector of the forests and of Skylands. She may be a highly trained ninja, but sometimes Stealth Elf is known to have a sense of a rampaging Cyclops Mammoth.[1] She speaks her mind, whether others want to hear it or not. She can sneak her way into any enemy's territory, but can also be tactless.[2] Like all Life Skylanders, Stealth Elf prefers to keep her feet on the ground. Stealth Elf is also known to use trickery to get out of situations she doesn't feel like doing herself, using her decoys. [3]


Stealth Elf was separated from her parents when she was very young, and was taken-in by an unusually stealthy, ninja-like tree creature in the deep forest. Under his tutelage, she has spent the majority of her life training in the art of stealth fighting. After completing her training, she became a Skylander and set out into the world to uncover the mystery behind her origins.



Stealth Elf can't remember much about her family or from whence she came. But she is the only Skylander who can skewer and slice through a platoon of ne'er-do-wells before slipping away unseen. Stealth Elf's earliest memory is of waking with a start and screech, following a nightmarish dream of stampeding sheep. But when she awoke there were no woolly warriors in sight - only woodland and a complete memory blank. With a sniffle and a sigh, she picked herself up and set off in search of answers. After several days, she stumbled on a gnarled, stumpy-looking creature with the lightning moves of a ninja master. It turned out the creature was the guardian of the forest and trained in the ancient art of stealth.

Sensing the young elf's skill for sneaking, the guardian immediately made her his apprentice. Sure enough, Stealth Elf was a natural and soon, ran rings around her increasingly ragged sensei. Master Eon was invited for a look, and was knocked out by her nifty ninja skills. She was made a Skylander on the spot and served not only guardian of the forests, but protector of the world.[4]

Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

Spyro and Stealth Elf

Stealth Elf and Spyro investigating Stinky Swamp

After investigating Stinky Swamp, Stealth Elf returned to Eon's Citadel to inform the veteran Portal Master of a terrible monster lurking within the swamp. She was then accompanied by Spyro to search out this monster, saving a Mabu named Snuckles from Chompies along the way. The Mabu explained that he was looking for a friend, Nort, who went missing in the swamp. The two Skylanders were then attacked by an unusually giant titchy toad, whose toxic saliva caused Spyro and Stealth Elf to fall asleep while Snuckles was nearly eaten and torn apart by the titchy toad only to be saved by the timely arrival of Kaos, who claimed that he was turning over a new leaf by defeating evil doers and also having saved Nort from the toad. Stealth Elf was woken up by Spyro in time to hear Kaos renouncing his evil ways before he departed, leaving Spyro and Stealth Elf in disbelief.

As news of Kaos saving the residents of Skylands from mega-sized creatures were made known, Stealth Elf stayed behind while Jet-Vac, Drill Sergeant, and Spyro were instructed to go to the Desert of Columns to help a Molekin named Diggs escape from a mega-sized monster.  When the Skylanders returned, Stealth Elf accompanied Spyro, Trigger Happy, and Drill Sergeant to help the Warrior Librarians of the Eternal Archives protect the Archives from being taken. During a battle against mega-sized Chompies, Kaos appeared and revealed his true intentions of him claiming to be a hero: he wanted to test his magic staff on a few creatures (growing them into a giant size), trick people into thinking he was saving them just so he could attack the Archive and blackmail its curator, Wiggleworth, into giving the evil Portal Master a forbidden book within the Archives.

During the struggle against Kaos and the giant Chompies, Stealth Elf stole Kaos's staff and uses its magic to grow Spyro to mega-size for him to battle the Chompies. However, Kaos stole back his staff and shrunk Stealth Elf down to the size of an ant. As revenge, the tiny elf stabbed one of her daggers into Kaos's ankle like a splinter, causing the evil Portal Master to painfully drop his staff and allowing Drill Sergeant the chance to destroy it, returning Spyro and Stealth Elf back to normal size. The Skylanders soon defeated the giant Chompies and successfully drove away Kaos from the Eternal Archive.

Skylanders: Giants

Stealth Elf, along with Spyro, Gill Grunt, Stump Smash, and Eruptor, are still frozen as toys on Earth and were put in a toy display inside a toy store called Super Toy Planet. They were few of the Skylanders who witnessed Kaos breaking free of his statue-like form due to his power as a Portal Master. When Kaos noticed the frozen Skylanders and taunted them, Stealth Elf, along with the Skylanders, agreed with Stump Smash when the tree creature angrily declared that if he could move, he'd be 'dropping the hammer' on Kaos right there and then. Afterwards, the present Skylanders could do nothing but watch as Kaos returned to Skylands with the use of a nearby Portal of Power.

The Kaos Trap

Stealth Elf Comic

Stealth Elf intimidates an easygoing Wash Buckler after demonstrating her fighting prowess.

Stealth Elf was one of the three Skylanders assigned to deliver supplies to a Mabu mining expedition digging for Radiance Crystals. While travelling there by Flynn's Dread-Yatch, the elven ninja was training herself by attacking training dummies on the deck. Wash Buckler insisted that she relax and enjoy the ride to the expedition, only to be intimidated when Stealth Elf asked if he had a problem with her way of relaxing after making short work of the training dummies. Suddenly, the Skylanders noticed that Kaos' army of trolls are attacking the Mabu mining expedition for the Radiance Crystals, and Stealth Elf, along with Pop Fizz and Wash Buckler quickly dispatch to aid the Mabu.

During the battle, the three Skylanders were forced to handle the trolls on their own due to the other Skylanders currently defending parts of Skylands elsewhere. Things soon turned for the worse when Wolfgang arrived, causing the Skylanders, including Stealth Elf, to feel threatened and outmatched as they weren't prepared to tackle both a Troll army and a villain. 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 are 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.

Rift into Overdrive

While searching for Kaos after his escape from the Villain Vault, Stealth Elf was with Head Rush, Fling Kong, Cali and Sharpfin at Kaos's old fortress in the Cloudbreak Islands in search of the evil Portal Master. On their way out, they were ambushed by a group of dark elite Drow Warriors lead by Count Moneybone and weren't prepared for a rift created by Kaos' Sky Eater. The three Skylanders, Sharpfin and Cali were able to escape and returned to the Academy to report what happened. After learning of the Rift Engines that may reconnect the connection between Portals, Stealth Elf, Terrafin, Jet-Vac, and Gill Grunt were assigned by Spyro to head for Know-It-All Island to discover the whereabouts of the Rift Engines.



Spyro is a fellow Skylander and ally to Stealth Elf, being in good terms with one another on most occasions. 

Drill Sergeant

Although Stealth Elf considers Drill Sergeant as an ally, she gets irritated by the Arkeyan bulldozer calling her 'sir' due to Drill Sergeant's original programming to obey orders.[5]


Being quite swift and agile, Stealth Elf able to skewer and slash swiftly at her enemies with her daggers. She can also create scarecrows of herself that wield scythes to attack other foes and can bring forth a copy of herself as a decoy to distract other enemies while she turns invisible.

In Skylanders: Battlecast, she also has the ability to inbue her blades with Nightshade Oil, increasing their damage and keeping anyone attacked by them from casting spells, and other abilities that allow her to attack sideline enemies by going after them or swapping them in. Her Gear is the Scorncrow, a dummy that reduces enemy power, and her Special Ability is Enchanted Blades,which temporarily increases her power.
