The Sidekicks are miniature versions of Skylanders who appear in the Skylanders series, obtained only in promotions of Frito-Lay. When activated, they follow the Skylanders around.
List of Sidekicks
- In the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC version of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, the background for each Sidekick is the same as adding a Magic Skylander, or Magic Item onto the Portal of Power. However, in Skylanders: Giants, the backgrounds become much different based on their specific elements in every version.
- When you put them on the portal, they'll appear and say their Skylander counterparts' catchphrases in a chipmunk voice.
- Currently, both Air and Fire elements have no sidekicks.
- Both Water and Life elements each have two sidekicks.
- Mini Jini and Whisper Elf are currently the only female sidekicks.
- Barkley is the the only Sidekick to not have their name be a pun on their Skylander's name.
