|This article is about the character within the Skylanders Academy continuity. You may be looking for the Skylander canon to the main storyline.|
Wind-Up is a first-year Skylander cadet in Skylanders Academy.
Wind-Up is easily impressed by feats from the Academy staff and older students, and easily distracted along with his fellow cadets Hex and Roller Brawl. He is unaware of his unique characteristic as of Season 1, mistakenly thinking it depends on the time he can stay wound up.
Wind-Up can attack with his sharp, spinning pincers. Though he mentions the duration of his winding up function, it is unknown if it's a form of attack like in the games.
Wind-Up is seen in classes or playing with Hex and Roller Brawl at various points of the season.
In Beard Science, the three are taking a grooming class with Master Eon, until they are interrupted by Broccoli Guy 's attempt to infiltrate the main classroom. Later on, they repeatedly notice Master Eon while attempting to discover their abilities, but are too distracted by their hijinks and his lack of influence to pay attention.
In Assault on Skylander Academy, Wind-Up drives away the Doom Raiders along with fellow cadets and veteran Skylanders. However, he is defeated despite leading an attack with Food Fight and Trigger Happy against an empowered Kaos, being incapacitated and hypnotized by Wolfgang.
- Despite being a robot, Wind-Up reacts to the spicy chilli in Anger Mismanagement the same way as his organic friends, rather than being damaged or having worse effects on his casing.
- According to himself in Beard Science, he can go 48 hours on a single wind-up.
