The Core of Light is an ancient machine that appears in the console versions of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. It is powered by all of the elements and was constructed using various items from the whole of Skylands.
The Core of Light is a great machine that the benevolent Ancients created to fill the skies of Skylands with light and to keep The Darkness at bay. However, Kaos arrived in Skylands and learned of the Core. Hungry for power, he tried to destroy the machine there and then in order to rule the world, but he was defeated by Master Eon and the Skylanders. The evil Portal Master, however, hasn't given up on attempting to destroy the Core of Light.
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
For centuries, the Core of Light enriched the world of Skylands and held back The Darkness, until Kaos returned from his exile one day and successfully destroyed the Core using his Hydra. One of the two main goals of Spyro's Adventure is to restore the Core of Light in order to repel The Darkness away once again. In the game, the Core of Light is located in the hub world known as the Ruins, and will be reconstructed one by one as each of the Eternal Sources is restored to the machine.
The Core of Light was powered by the Eternal Sources that each contains all of the elements of Skylands. It is also put together by ancient items, some that are needed to contain certain Eternal Sources.
