The Trap Team, individually referred to as Trap Masters, are a group of Skylanders who use special crystallized weapons to weaken villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. They were the ones who originally caught and imprisoned the villains, including the notorious Doom Raiders, in Cloudcracker Prison. However, they were banished to Earth after the prison walls were blown up by Kaos.
When near a Traptanium crystal cluster or when facing a trappable villain, the Trap Team's Traptanium weaponry glow brightly.
