Wired’s GEEK DAD has done his research! And with everything he’s done, he’s managed to take the 30+ Skylanders, rank them and find the Top 4– and the reasons they’re the ultimate characters.
Now that Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is out the big debate is which characters are the best to collect. My family each has a different approach to this. The kids want the ones that have the best weapons, I’m after a collection that grants access to all areas in the game and my wife seems to be drawn to the characters that look the best.
While you can complete the game with the three you get in the starter box, there are another 29 to choose from that not only unlock new areas but offer unique attacks and power ups. I’ve been trawling through the various stat lists with a fellow blogger (Steph Flemming) and have put together this Skylanders Character List. It gives a breakdown of the different characters benefits and shortcomings.
If you are looking for the highest ranking characters in terms of stats, here are the top four:
