“Slash and Burn!”
    —Ignitor's official catchphrase

Ignitor (イグナイター in Japanese) is a fire knight spirit who is one of the playable Skylanders in the Skylanders series, first appearing in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. He has a Legendary counterpart called Legendary Ignitor, who is exclusive at Toys R Us in a Legendary pack, with Legendary Slam Bam and Legendary Jet-Vac.



Despite the setback of being bound to his cursed suit of armor for eternity, Ignitor remains a spirited knight who is always fired up to protect his world from evil. He also developed a hatred for witches due to one having cursed him in the first place.


On his first quest as a knight, Ignitor was tricked by a cunning witch into wearing a magical suit of armor that he was told would resist fire from a dragon. As it turned out, it was made of cursed steel. He journeyed to a dragon's lair where a single blast of fire transformed him into a blazing spirit, binding him to the suit of armor for eternity. Despite this setback, Ignitor remains a spirited knight who is always fired up to protect the lands from evil and find the witch that tricked him.



When first he encountered the red dragon, Ignatius was a young knight with squeaky armour and a rusty sword. On his way to slay the beast, he met a witch who presented him with a special (and handy) gift - a magical suit of armour offering protection from dragon breath. But a nasty surprise was waiting for Ignatius at the dragon's lair. The monster rained its fiery breath over the knight's poor head, settling him on fire. Ignatius had been tricked! His new suit was made from a cursed steel that bound itself to him, trapping him inside where he would forever remain a fire spirit. But all was not lost. He defeated the dragon and became a Skylander. Now named Ignitor, he has since embraced his fiery talents and keeps a vengeful lookout for witches everywhere.[1]


Ignitor has the ability to leave his suit of armor to singe nearby enemies with his flaming spirit form. He also wields a flaming sword to slice his enemies.
