“It's Feeding Time!”
    —Terrafin's official catchphrase

Terrafin is a dirt shark Skylander in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure who was first available only in the Pirate Seas Adventure Pack. He is of the Earth element.

His Series 3 counterpart is called Knockout Terrafin, who is available in the Fiery Forge triple pack with Bumble Blast. He is also available in a single pack and a triple pack.

Terrafin, named Shark Shooter Terrafin, is one of the returning Skylanders who is reposed as a SuperCharger in Skylanders: SuperChargers.



Terrafin is a fighter and has a personality to match. He's rough and physically minded, and blunt in his dealings with others. His comments in the various Skylander videos suggest that he's got a personality based on B.A. Barracus from the A-Team TV series. He often states he's both a fighter and a lover. Nothing gets Terrafin on the ropes. If he's knocked down he gets straight back up again, coming back fighting from any scrap. He thinks with his fists, and sometimes his teeth.[1] Terrafin may be a little rough and ready, but he's always ready to use his mighty shark-fists to protect the innocent.[2]


Terrafin hails from The Dirt Seas, where it was common to swim, bathe, and even snorkel beneath the ground. But a powerful explosion in the sky created a blast wave that turned the ocean of sand into a vast sheet of glass, putting an end to Terrafin’s duty as the local lifeguard. Not one to stay idle, the brawny dirt shark found himself training in the art of boxing, and not long after he was local champ. Fighters came from all around to challenge him, but it was a chance meeting with a great Portal Master that led him to give up his title for a greater purpose.



Terrafin is the brawling shark boxer who likes close quarter combat. Terrafin built up his brawny biceps on the beaches of the Dirt Sea, where he worked as a lifeguard. In between fin-ups and jaw-curls he would patrol the dry, sandy waves and save struggling dune-swimmers from a lifetime of finding sand in unusual places. One day, an explosion in the sky threatened every swimmer, surfer and jet-skier in (and above) the Dirt Sea. Terrafin leapt from his life-saving seat and cleared the area in seconds. Moments later, the blast burned across the sand and scorched it into a solid sheet of glass.

Now unemployed, Terrafin trained himself as a tournament boxer. He even developed his own signature move: the risky 'over under', where he would punch, dive underground, and surface for the finishing blow. After body-slamming every suitable successor into stunned submission, Terrafin hung up his boxing belt. Now, at Master Eon's suggestion, Terrafin only dukes it out with enemies of Skylands - and often daydreams of knocking out Kaos in bare-knuckled bout.[3]

During his days as a Skylander, a burrowing Terrafin collided into the dormant Drill Sergeant who was buried underground. He brought the Arkeyan Ultron to Master Eon and the old Portal Master used his magic to fire up Drill Sergeant's systems to bring him to life. By Arkeyan custom, Drill Sergeant was then obligated to become Terrafin's servant, but the dirt shark didn't like the idea, so Terrafin's first order as master was for Drill Sergeant to not serve him at all.

It was Terrafin who brought Fist Bump to Master Eon after the dirt shark witnessed Fist Bump bravely drive off a group of Greebles when they threatened the Bumbling Bamboo Forest.

Skylanders: Terrafin Battles the Boom Brothers

Hot Dog Terrafin

Hot Dog using his firepower to free Terrafin from the sticky candyfloss.

Terrafin was enjoying a day-off at the Fantastic Fairy Fair with fellow Skylanders, Hot Dog and Sonic Boom. The trio of Skylanders soon discovered a sad Stone Golem named Rocky who was under the unwilling employment of Professor Puck, the fair's owner who took Rocky from his home after discovering that the golem's magical, singing voice made everyone within earshot dance. After saving Gurglefin from a sticky cluster of candyfloss, the Skylanders attended Puck's circus show with Rocky being the star attraction due to his singing. Soon, the show was interrupted when a group of Trolls and the evil Floss-O-Tron 3000 trapped everyone, including the Skylanders, under a layer of sticky candyfloss, and kidnapped Rocky under of Kaos, believing him to be the Earth segment to the Mask of Power.

Thanks to Hot Dog's fire power, the Skylanders were able to free themselves and the crowd from the candyfloss. Terrafin soon came across Sprocket, who was in a sticky predicament, and assisted her in their battle against Kaos, the Trolls, and Floss-O-Tron 3000, soon saving the circus from a sticky explosion. 

The Skylanders returned to the Eternal Archives after discovering a leftover clue that helped them learn about the Boom Brothers, a pair of robots responsible for making explosives. Figuring that that the Explosive Emporium is where Kaos had taken Rocky, Terrafin went with Hot Dog, Sonic Boom, and Sprocket to Junk Mountain where the explosions factory laid. After getting past an aggressive Trash Ogre and the emporium's security, the Skylanders were able to sneak inside and find Rocky only to fall into a trap made by Kaos and the Boom Brothers. The evil Portal Master then forced the heroes to dance uncontrollably by throwing sticks of dynamite that contained Rocky's enchanted singing called disco dynamite. Terrafin quickly thought of a plan and instructed Sonic Boom to use her ear-piercing screech to drown the Boom Brother's disco dynamite and help stop the Skylanders from dancing. Thanks to this, the Skylanders were able to disorient the Boom Brothers, drive Kaos out of the room and sealed themselves inside the chamber, which turned out to be the inner section of a large rocket they were in.

Kaos then threatened to blow the Skylanders sky-high should they refuse to let him and his troll army back inside the rocket and turn over Rocky to them. Even worse, the Boom Brothers recovered from the attack and was holding Hot Dog hostage, also threatening the Skylanders to surrender otherwise the robots would detonate the whole room using a pineapple grenade. Terrafin pretended to surrender to the Boom Brothers, tricking them into arguing with one another until one of the brothers forced the pineapple grenade down his sibling's throat, causing them both to explode. 

With the danger of the Boom Brothers gone, there was still the threat of Kaos ordering the Skylanders to surrender Rocky. Sprocket unintentionally launched the rocket, sending the Skylanders away from Junk Mountain and leaving Kaos and his troll army under what was left of the Explosive Emporium. Back at the Eternal Archive, the Skylanders discovered that the Earth segment wasn't Rocky, but his singing voice, which was given to him centuries ago by one of the Spell Punks who first split the Mask of Power. They soon accompanied Rocky back to the fair and attended his show, which turned out to be disastrous for Professor Puck when Rocky's true, terrible singing voice was made known. This caused the audience to turn against Puck as they paid him to hear Rocky sing his magical voice that he lost and proceeded to run Puck out of town, leaving the Skylanders and Rocky satisfied over their victory.

Skylanders: Trigger Happy Targets the Evil Kaos

Terrafin was one of the Skylanders who assembled to stop Kaos from reforming the Mask of Power. Despite getting through Kaos's defenses in his castle, the Skylanders were unable to stop Kaos from putting on the Mask of Power, which allowed him to steal the powers of the Skylanders, including Terrafin's, rendering them defenseless. Terrafin and the other Skylanders were teleported back to Eon's Citadel by Master Eon before they can be finished off. With his best abilities stolen from him, the dirt shark worked with the Skylanders in creating a makeshift tower to protect the Core of Light from Kaos. 

Despite their efforts, with Terrafin joining with Slobber Tooth and Stump Smash as the first wave of attack, Kaos once again overwhelmed the Skylanders by using their powers against them. Trigger Happy, along with Terrafin and the other Skylanders, tricked Kaos into using all of their powers at the same time, causing him to lose control. At that moment of weakness, the Mask of Power was yanked off of Kaos's face by Trigger Happy, allowing the Skylanders to recover their abilities and use them to fully destroy the Mask of Power once and for all.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Terrafin was one of the Skylanders who assembled to Master Eon when Kaos and The Darkness approached the Ruins. The dirt shark then participated in the battle against Kaos' minions to protect the Core of Light along with the other Skylanders, stopping a lone Cyclops Chopper from fleeing before beating it with a few swift punches. Upon the Cyclops' defeat, Terrafin ate one of the XP orbs that were left behind by the enemy and burrowed through the ground, taking out a few enemies in his way with his dorsal fin and proceeded to chased down a small group of Cyclops Choppers before leaping out of the ground and bodyslamming them to nothingness.

As it seemed that the Skylanders were winning the struggle, Kaos released his Hydra into the fray, and it destroyed the Core of Light. During the confusion, Terrafin, along with the other Skylanders, were banished from Skylands and sent to Earth, where he became frozen as a toy due to the world's lack of magic. He waited for the new Portal Master to find and help him save Skylands.

Skylanders Issue #8

Terrafin was one of the forty Skylanders that were summoned to stop Malefor from reaching the Skylanders Academy. However despite their best efforts, they were defeated by the evil dragon, who proceeded to drain their powers with a crystal to make himself more stronger.

Skylanders: Rift into Overdrive

WARNING: This section contains spoilers below! (Skip section)

When strange rifts began appearing around Skylands, Terrafin volunteered to go with Jet-Vac and Stealth Elf to Know-It-All Island to look for answers regarding the Rift Engines, mostly to get payback for what Kaos' minions had done to a group of Skylanders that were searching for the evil Portal Master previously. Once at Know-It-All Island, the Skylanders and Flynn encountered Blobbers, who was sent by his village to learn about the strange rifts that were destroying everything across Skylands. A nearby Stone Head revealed to the group the history behind the Rift Engines and the fact that Kaos had awakened a power hidden long ago. Before the Stone Head could begin to tell the location of the Rift Engines, Kaos himself opened a rift and it consumed the island as soon as the Stone Head told a riddle to the Skylanders regarding the location of the Rift Engines. The Skylanders and their friends were soon rescued by non-Skylanders, Spitfire and Stormblade, who transported them all to safety with their vehicles.

After getting acquainted with Spitfire, Stormblade, and other non-Skylanders, Fiesta and Dive-Clops, Terrafin and the other Skylanders allowed the SuperChargers to help the Skylanders on their journey as there was no other available transportation. While treking through Skylands, the Skylanders and SuperChargers figured out the Stone Head's riddle and came to the Whirlpool of Destiny where the Rift Engines were hidden in an underwater city. Being a dirt shark, Terrafin expressed his dislike in going underwater. While Dive-Clops and Gill Grunt used the Dive Bomber to begin their search underwater, Terrafin and the other land Skylanders held back a group of Kaos' minions to buy their friends some time.

As they were about to become overwhelmed, Gill Grunt and Dive-Clops succeeded in hauling the Rift Engines from the underwater depths. Terrafin, Stealth Elf and Jet-Vac were shocked at seeing Gill Grunt's SuperCharged form, who quickly instructed his three companions to unlock the chest and hope the Rift Engines inside chooses them. As they touched the Rift Engines, Terrafin, Stealth Elf and Jet-Vac were granted the powers of SuperChargers which transformed them, and they used their newfound abilities to drive off Kaos' minions. With the Rift Engines at their disposal, the Skylanders, and the newly-formed Skylander SuperChargers, began their adventure in stopping Kaos and his latest plan.

Spoilers end here.


Like all dirt sharks, Terrafin can swim and burrow through the ground. Being a former tournament boxer, he can perform punches and use his ground abilities to deal the finishing blow on his enemies.
