“Eight Legs and No Pegs!”
    —Wash Buckler's official catchphrase

Wash Buckler is a Mermasquid pirate who is one of the SWAP Force Skylanders in Skylanders: Swap Force. He is of the Water element. His SWAP Force Ability is Climb.

Background

Personality

Unlike most pirates, Wash Buckler is kind-hearted and true. He was never comfortable with pirating.[1]

Biography

Wash Buckler was an orphan Mermasquid, who grew up on one of the roughest pirate ships in Skylands. While most pirates were interested in pillaging and plundering, Wash Buckler had other ideas for the future of pirating. Over the years, he earned the respect of his crew and eventually convinced his fellow pirates that they didn’t all need to be cantankerous bad guys. Thus, they set forward doing heroic deeds. Of course, this new good guy image did not sit well with other pirating crews, who attempted to sabotage Wash Buckler at every turn. But he was no ordinary pirate, and he defended his ship and his crew against the many attacking hordes. It was then that Master Eon took notice of Wash Buckler and asked him to join the Skylanders.

Story

The Kaos Trap

Wash Buckler 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-Yacht, the Octosquid was relaxing on deck and insisted that Stealth Elf should relax and enjoy the ride to the expedition. In response, Wash Buckler was 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 were attacking the Mabu mining expedition for the Radiance Crystals, and Wash Buckler, along with Pop Fizz and Stealth Elf quickly took action 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.

Return of the Dragon King

Wash Buckler was one of the many Skylanders who were summoned to stop Malefor from attacking the Skylanders Academy. Despite their best efforts, they were overwhelmed by the evil dragon, who proceeded to drain the powers of the Skylanders with a crystal to make himself stronger.

Rift into Overdrive

Wash Buckler aided the defense of the Skylanders Academy with Chill, Slam Bam, and Zap as his crew on board his ship. When Kaos arrived with a group of his minions in an all-out war, the Mermasquid and his group fought back as enemies breached his ship. Wash Buckler would gain help in the form of Knight Light and his Skylander flight support, successfully fighting off the first wave of enemies before they were met with Kaos' impossibly huge fleet of airships approaching them.

Gameplay

Wash Buckler can attack by slapping foes with his tentacles as well as shoot ink from them which stuns enemies, his tentacles even allow him to climb walls and steep surfaces easily. He can also use his cutlass and bubble gun; and his soul gem allows him to create a watery pirate ship. In Skylanders: Battlecast, he can Rust Gear into Rusted Junk, eat kelp to increase his attack, and paralyze enemies with his ink. His signature Gear is the Mermasquid Buckler, decreasing incoming damage, and his Special Ability is Muckshot, decreasing enemy damage temporarily.
