|This article is about the character from the Skylanders series. You may be looking for the character from The Legend of Spyro series.|
|Appearances:||(So far mentioned in the backstories of Cynder and Hex)|
Although he has yet to appear on-screen, Malefor played a sinister role in the backstories of both Hex and Cynder, two Undead Skylanders. He was the one who raised Cynder to do his evil bidding after his henchmen stole her while the violet dragoness was still just an egg. His evil influence was what caused Cynder to spread fear throughout the land for years until Spyro finally defeated her, freeing Cynder from Malefor's control.
Malefor was also the one who attempted to capture Hex several times to unlock the secrets of her powers. In response, the elven sorceress confronted the Undead Dragon King himself in the underworld and successfully battled him, leaving Malefor terribly wounded.
- Malefor living in the underworld of Skylands may most likely be a reference to his Legend of Spyro counterpart's imprisonment in the core of the earth at the end of Dawn of the Dragon.
- While his Legend of Spyro counterpart is a a rare purple dragon capable of harnessing the power of the other elements, in Skylanders, Malefor is an Undead dragon and the Dragon King of the underworld.
- It is mentioned that Malefor was banished by Hex after she battled the Undead Dragon King.
