“Drop the Hammer!”
    —Stump Smash's official catchphrase

Stump Smash (スタンプスマッシュ in Japanese) is a tree-like creature who is one of the playable Skylanders in the Skylanders series, first appearing in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.

He also has a Fall counterpart which is available in September 2013 in Skylanders: Lost Islands.



Prior to being logged, Stump Smash was a peaceful tree creature who spent most of his lifetime sleeping in the forest areas of his world, that is, until his incident with the Trolls. To this day, Stump Smash is still grouchy about what happened to him and takes his anger out on evil doers. He is still vengeful against the trolls (with the exception of Boomer, the only good troll and a fellow Skylander).


Stump Smash was once a magical tree creature who spent most of his time sleeping peacefully in the forests of Skylands. Then one day he awoke to discover that his entire forest had been chopped down and logged by the Trolls... himself included! His long branches were gone, leaving him only with powerful mallets for hands, which he used to smash the Trolls' tree-cutting machines. Although still grumpy about what happened to him, Stump Smash has vowed to protect Skylands against those who would do it harm... especially Trolls.



Stump Smash was once a magical tree in an ancient glade of wonderous woodland. But one day, he awake to a bark-bristling sight. Every tree, shrub and sapling around him had been cut down and hauled away. Holding up in his branches in horror, Stump Smash realized he too had been 'logged'. All that was left were two wooden stumps in the shape of mallets. With a resounding roar, Stump Smash uprooted himself and stomped toward the gaggle of lumberjack trolls responsible. He brought together his mallet hands, and WHACK! The terrified trolls ran screaming for their pointy-nosed googly-eyed lives. Even Master Eon heard the racket and set off to investigate. And, after learning Stump Smash's sad story, he brought him on board at once.[1]

Skylanders: Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Stump Smash was the Skylander who helped calm Spyro when he was upset about Master Eon's capture by Squirmgrub. When the Giggling Forest mysteriously started crying, Spyro assigned Stump Smash, Wrecking Ball, Countdown and Flameslinger to investigate. There, they discovered that the most of the giggling trees were turned to stone by a rampaging Bone Dragon, who was awakened by Kaos and his group of trolls. The Dragon then attacked Stump Smash, a half petrified Glumshanks and the other Skylanders, nearly turning them to stone as well. The stench of Wrecking Ball's belch was enough to drive the Bone Dragon off, and Stump Smash instructed Countdown to signal for help, which managed to reach Lightning Rod who was heading back from Fantasm Forest.

Trigger Happy and Stump Smash

Stump Smash being assisted by Trigger Happy in their fight to protect the Core of Light

Stump Smash was one of the Skylanders who assembled on Eon's Island when Kaos arrived with The Darkness to destroy the Core of Light. The tree creature participated in the fight against the dark forces, chasing after a small group of Cyclops Choppers and smashing them down with his mallets. After dealing with the minor enemies, Stump Smash was suddenly struck from behind by an axe, and he turned around to find himself confronted by a large group of Cyclopses and Trolls. He realized that he was greatly outnumbered, but the tree creature was saved by the arrival of Trigger Happy. Working together, both Stump Smash and Trigger Happy took out the horde of Cyclopses and Trolls, including two Goliath Drows individually.

However, when the Skylanders were winning the battle, Kaos unleashed his Hydra, who then destroyed the Core of Light; its destruction banishing all the Skylanders from their world to Earth. Stump Smash, along with the other Skylanders, were turned into toys as a result of Earth having no magic. He waited for the new Portal Master to find him to help save Skylands.


Despite having his branches chopped, Stump Smash can still attack his enemies by slamming them with his mallet-like hands. He also has the ability to roll a large, spiked acorn upon his opponents, and can spit out smaller acorns at his opponent that will cause branches to grow on the enemy's body, slowing them down as a result.
