    —Zook's official catchphrase

Zook is a Bambazooker who is a Skylander from Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. He is of the Life element.



Zook is the cheeriest walking bamboo plant you will ever meet. He lives life to the fullest and wants to explore every last one of Skylands' many islands.[1]


Zook hails from a strange and unusual species called Bambazookers, who once lived their entire lives standing in place… until Zook discovered they could walk simply by stepping out of the mud. After that, he became a wandering hero, using his hand-carved bamboo tube as a bazooka that fires special explosive thorns. Campfire songs were even written about him. Now, Zook spends his time as a Skylander, figuring he can be an even bigger hero… and have even more songs written about him.



Zook is something of a folk hero among the Bambazooker forest folk. After centuries of standing still, Zook decided not to be a stick in the mud anymore. He simply lifted his leg and stepped forward. He then wandered the woods spreading the word - Bambazookers can move! But nobody took much notice. The first time an outsider saw a Bambazooker was when Zook saved an elven mapping expedition. The elves were watching Zook and placing bets on the purpose of his bamboo tube (some said it was a telescope, while others mantained it was a didgeridoo). The elves were caught unawares when a mighty mountain troll stomped menacingly towards them.

Suddenly, Zook brought all betting to a close when he lifted the great tube to his shoulder. Out shot a shower of exploding thorns that sent the troll into a speedy retreat. 'Ahhhh, a bazooka!' the elves exclaimed. To this day, no other bambazooker has ever taken a single step. So, as the only mobile Bambazooker in history, Zook has a special place in the Skylanders squad.[2]
