Arkeyan Defenders are skeletal warriors that were left behind by the Arkeyans as defenses to their Vault and Armory. They serve as enemies to the Skylanders. They attack the skylanders with a mace and can be attacked when they try and pull their mace out of the ground, or when they raise their mace to hit the skylander.
- The Arkeyan Hammahs share the same character model as the Arkeyan Defenders.
- Arkeyan Defenders bear a resemblance to Chop Chop as they are both Arkeyans that were created by undead magic and technology.
- They are replaced with Arkeyan Jousters in Giants.
