    —Wrecking Ball's official catchphrase

Wrecking Ball is a grub worm Skylander in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. He is in the Magic element. He also has a flowery counterpart, Buddy Wrecking Ball who was available only on Skylanders: Lost Islands for a limited time.

Background

Personality

Possibly the most reckless of all the Skylanders, Wrecking Ball rolls into danger without thought for his own personal safety. This lively larva smashes anything in his path (often) by accident, and is always hungry, even when he's just eaten![1] In some media, he possesses dog-like qualities.

Biography

Wrecking Ball was once a tiny grub worm about to become the main ingredient in an old wizard’s cauldron of magic stew. But when he was dropped in, the wizard was shocked to see the little grub devour all of the soup and emerge from the cauldron 20 times larger and with a long, sticky tongue. The poor old wizard was even more surprised seconds later, when Wrecking Ball proceeded to swallow him whole. Eventually he ran, quite literally, into the powerful Portal Master Eon, who was intrigued by how he came to be and impressed with his unique abilities.

Story

History

Once upon a time, Wrecking Ball was nothing more than a common or garden grub. His adventure began when he became a speciality ingredient in a wizard's magical stew. After being chucked into the cooking concoction, a curious occurence took place. The hungry little grub worm took a sip, and then a gulp, and ended up devouring the whole lot. When the wizard came in to check on his cauldron, instead of his tasty stew he found one enormous grub who had grown to over twenty times his original size. And as Wrecking Ball was still a little peckish, he popped the wizard in his mouth too - only to spit him straight back out again (even a grub's standard's, the wizard tasted like a warthog!). The story soon spread, raising smiles across the Skylands world. Soon the plucky grub bounced into Master Eon, who evidently felt that the Skylanders could do with a serious stomach among their ranks.[2]

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

After being banished from Skylands along with the other Skylanders, being a frozen statue was a living nightmare for Wrecking Ball. This lively, giant blue grub is never content unless he's smashing things around him (though never on purpose). His thoughts were a mix between food and how to unleash his rapidly building energy.[3]

Gameplay

Having consumed an entire cauldron of magic stew, its effects not only made Wrecking Ball grow 20 times his normal size and enhanced him with magical energy, but also gave him a long, sticky tongue which he uses to lash at his enemies. He can also curl into a ball and steamroll into his enemies using the magical energy he uses as a forcefield. Wrecking Ball can also let loose out a burp of gas from his mouth to blow enemies away, and can also devour his enemies to regain health if he has gained his Soul Gem ability.

Trivia

  • His missing teeth is the price all good grubs pay for eagerness in battle.[2]
  • Wrecking Ball reminded Master Eon of his favorite childhood pet.[4]
    • The old Portal Master was also the one who named Wrecking Ball after the grub worm wrecked a few of Eon's statues.
  • Since Jawbreakers seem to be affected by moves that don't work on large enemies, Wrecking Ball is able to eat them. When he eats Brute, the cutscene with him still plays, but Wrecking Ball will get 10+ health.
  • If you eat an enemy or food item before using his regular Power Belch, the burp will have increased range and do more damage. If he eats two enemies or food items the burp will become red and it does more damage than the long-range green burp.
  • When Wrecking Ball eats the Armored Chompies, they don't lose any health even though Wrecking Ball gains 10+ health. Wrecking Ball can get an extra 10+ health by finishing it off.
    • When Wrecking Ball eats the Armored Cyclopses, they will sink to the ground and die, making Wrecking Ball the only Skylander who can actually take out the Armored Cyclopses with just one hit.
  • He and Slobber Tooth are currently the only known Skylanders who eat their enemies.
