Stealth Elf is one of the main protagonists of the spin-off series, Skylanders Academy.



Stealth Elf is commonly the voice of reason in Team Spyro. When a teammate is distracted from their duties, she is quick to try and put them on the right track. Though she maintains a tough exterior, the elf is also easily embarassed when noticed in emotional moments. She is also mischievous, often scaring her teammates with her super speed.


Here one second... gone the next. Stealth Elf is a speed demon who can travel from one corner of Skylanders Academy to the other before you can say, "Whoa, did she just teleport?" And if you think she's quick on her feet, just wait until you see her work her blades. This ninja warrior is a force to be reckoned with, whether it's defeating her enemies or suddenly appearing behind one of her teammates with no warning to yell, "BOO!", and make them jump – or in Eruptor's case, to spew lava all over the place. But don’t let the name fool you – she may be stealth in a fight, but this Elf is always ready to take the lead and command her team to victory!


Being a ninja, Stealth Elf can teleport in a puff of smoke and use her agility to evade attacks. Her weapon of choice are her dual blades, though she also occasionally carries additional weapons. She also possesses super speed, even allowing her to read quickly.



Stealth Elf enrolled in Skylanders Academy as a junior cadet and became friends with fellow students, Spyro and Eruptor.

Season 1

When Spyro was stalling their game of Sheep Ball in Skylanders Academy, Stealth Elf playfully threw the sheep at Spyro's head multiple times to try and knock some sense into the dragon. The class bell soon rang, and Stealth Elf and Eruptor barely made it to class in time before Spyro's arrogance caused Professor Jet-Vac to give the entire class a surprise pop quiz as punishment.

Stealth Elf and Eruptor later did their practice run in preparation for the Skylander Games, but were surprised and disappointed to find out that Spyro blew off their last practice to throw him and his two roommates a premature graduation party at their house. The following morning, the two cadets couldn't find Spyro around their home and went on to the Skylander Games without him. Once there, Stealth Elf and the other cadets participated in their tests that would determine their worth as Skylanders.

Offscreen, Stealth Elf passed the final test sucessfully, and was disappointed at Spyro's tardiness and lack of focus, which lead to his failure in the Games while she and Eruptor graduated. Though she attempted to cheer the dragon up in the next day, Stealth Elf and Eruptor went to the graduation cerimony without him. After being drawn in the Book of Skylanders by Master Eon and momentarily congratulated by Spyro through a cloud drawing, the group at the cerimony was attacked by Kaos, who dodged their attacks and froze the book and them with it.

Seeing the commotion outside the arena, Spyro returned to help them, and though Stealth Elf urged him to escape while he had time, the dragon chose instead to help them and pursue Kaos and his butler Glumshanks. Though he was repeatedly defeated by the sorcerer, he found an opening to defrost the book, and freed the other Skylanders. Stealth Elf and the others soon returned to the Academy library as the villain tried to take Spyro away, and after an offscreen beating, threw them out of the school island. Happy to see their friend safe and sound, Stealth Elf and Eruptor congratulated Spyro's efforts, as well as Master Eon, who made him a Skylander and bound him to the Book in return.

In My Way or the Sky Way, after a mission to fix the Academy's basements pipes, Spyro, Stealth Elf and Eruptor returned home to discuss Jet-Vac's attitude towards planning, only for him to enter house and announce that he was moving in with them. Though the ninja was quick to label the rooms in an attempt to stop th Sky Baron from sharing a room with her or Eruptor, he eventually discovered Spyro's room and started a routine of criticizing his habits and the state of their house.

Later that day, Stealth Elf and Eruptor could no longer find the two, only to discover Spyro hiding in the house's sewer entrance to escape the lectures. Before they could discuss what to do about the stern professor, however, Master Eon summoned them to a mission to put out a fire on the Falling Forest, and they made their way to the Skylander Games along with Jet-Vac and Pop Fizz to retrieve the SuperChargers. However, Jet-Vac held them back for hours by thoroughly reading their instruction manuals, and when they could finally make their way to the forest, the fire was already put out by Snap Shot and Ka-Boom.

After Jet-Vac was properly criticized for his actions by Master Eon and made amends with Spyro - stopping Kaos' newest plan in the process - the group ate lizard gizzards at their kitchen to commemorate, and the three new Skylanders invited Jet-Vac to stay in their house for real. Unexpectedly, Pop Fizz appeared from the basement entrance to talk as well, revealing he was living in there for quite some time already, and despite the rather sudden meeting, Team Spyro was formed.



Stealth Elf berates and congratulates Spyro for his recklessness and loyalty frequently, but they are good friends all the same. Though she never confirms it, Spyro claims she has written on her diary that he is her best friend. In Season 2, however, in Belly of the Beast, when they were stuck in the belly of Fire Viper, it is revealed that Spyro is her best friend.


The two are great friends, despite Stealth Elf's tendency to appear unexpectedly and scare the rock monster.


Stealth Elf looks up to her as both a Skylander, and a fellow ninja. When she needed to further her ninja skills to take down Berserker, Eon suggested Stealth Elf seek her out. However when meeting Ninjini, she is shocked to see her idol give up on being a ninja to her insecurity of being out of practice. After training with her, both were able to sharpen their skills.
