The Villains are a group of most wanted evil creatures in Skylands in Skylanders: Trap Team. They were originally kept behind bars in the Cloudcracker Prison until Kaos freed them to build his own army. Using magical Traps, Portal Masters are able to recapture these villains and use them to fight for good. An evil villain called the Golden Queen seeks to recruit the strongest villains into her gang called the Doom Raiders to spread complete mayhem.

In Imaginators, some of those villains return as Senseis.


After escaping from Cloudcracker Prison, the villains can be found throughout the game story. They can be encountered in plain sight or hidden in certain areas of the chapters. When a villain is defeated, they release a wave of energy that wipes out other nearby enemies that were summoned by the villain. If the player doesn't have the elemental trap that is needed to trap the villain, the player can simply not trap the villain and they will be taken to the Villain Vault instead where they can be switched in or out later.

At first, the villains are playable for 30 seconds, prompting the switching between villain and Skylander. The timer gradually increases as you complete Villain Quests. Not only do the Villain Quests increase the respective villain's timer, it also changes their color. However, Sheep Creep, Chomp Chest, and Kaos' timers are longer than other villains'

In the 3DS version of Trap Team, the Nightmare Villains take over the role of capturable villains. Unlike the console versions, traps are not needed to capture these villains, and can be summoned to release an special attack than strongly damages enemies, rather than being playable (with the exception of Villain Bootcamps).
