Skylanders who are associated with the element of Air use the manipulation of wind and storms to their advantage against their foes. They are strong against Earth Skylanders, but are weak against Fire characters in the Battle Arena. The color of this element is light blue. All Air skylanders (except Lightning Rod) have upgrades involving a third ability to fly. One Air Skylander, Whirlwind, is capable of destroying Purple Tzo Crystals with one of her normal attacks but only in Spyro's Adventure as that capability is disabled in Giants.
When opening an Air Gate, the Air skylander uses a small tornado that acts as a teleporter.
Air-based Skylanders stand on a pedestal made of clouds when they're in their toy form. This excludes Lightning Rod, as the cloud pedestal is part of him.
In Giants, small tornadoes act as gates to Air elemental zones.
Because Air Skylanders are capable of flying, Whirlwind, Warnado and Sonic Boom are the only ones able to fly over bodies of water while Lightning Rod and Jet-Vac cannot (Swarm can on the PS3 and WII version).
Swarm and Jet-Vac are the only Air Skylanders who are bipeds.
