“The Beam is Supreme!”
    —Prism Break's official catchphrase

Prism Break (プリズムブレイク in Japanese) is a crystal golem who is one of the playable Skylanders in the Skylanders series, first appearing in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. His Series 3 counterpart is called Hyper Beam Prism Break.



Prism Break was originally a frightening rock golem who didn't like to be bothered within his underground territory. After being buried for 100 years in a cave-in, he gains a change of heart when a Mabu mining expedition freed him and Prism Break dedicated himself in protecting the Mabu tribe and Skylands.


Prism Break was once a fearsome rock golem who didn't like to be disturbed. Then, an accidental cave-in left him buried underground. One hundred years later, a mining expedition digging for valuable jewels discovered him by chance with a well-placed blow from a pick axe—something Prism Break doesn't talk about. After 100 years of solitude, he found that the pressure of the earth had transformed him emotionally as well as physically, turning his crude rocky arms into incredible gems with powerful energy. Grateful for being free of his earthly prison, Prism Break decided to put his new abilities to good use, and from that day forward, he dedicated himself to protecting the Mabu and Skylands alongside the other Skylanders.



Prism Break was a fearsome Rock Golem who inhabited dark, dangerous places deep underground. But embedded in the rocky walls of Prism Break's home was a dragon's hoard of gems, jewels and sparkly stones that no miner could resist. Few returned unscathed. Those that could still speak told of trashed tools and mangeled machinery - not to mention the blood-curtling cries and ghastly growls that rang out from the dark depths. A nice place for a relaxing breaking this was not. Eventually there were no miners left who would brave these perilous passageways. Finally able to rest without interruption, Prism Break retired to his favorite cavern and sank into a silent slumber. He slept through some important events - including the roof collapsing over him.

Over 100 years later, Prism Break was rudely roused by a new generation of Mabu miners. One of them had pick-axed him in a place he rather not mention. But instead of munching the Mabu and using the pickaxes for toothpicks, Prism Break found himself transformed. His arms had turned from rocks into powerful gems that fired pure bolts of energy. Feeling much improved, he decided to be a force for good instead of grumpiness. So he joined the Skylanders.[1]

Skylanders: Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

Prism Break made a cameo as one of the Skylanders called upon by Master Eon to help repair the damage done to the Eternal Archives after Kaos launched an attack.


Prism Break has the ability to shoot beams of energy at his enemies using his gem-like limbs, and also summon crystals to erupt from the ground under his opponents to finish them off.

Prism Break/Gallery


  • Prism Break's name refers to the breaking effect prisms have on light beams. Coincidentally (and probably intentionally), his name is a pun on the phrase "Prison Break."

  • His gem color changes according to the Upgrade Path he chooses, green when you choose Crystaleer, and yellow when you choose Prismacer.
  • Like Wrecking Ball, Prism Break shares similarities with not one, but two characters from the Ben 10 series, Diamondhead and Chromastone respectively, as all three have a crystalline structure and posess the ability to either fire or refract laser beams.
  • Prism Break, Crusher, Flashwing and Whirlwind are the only Skylanders who can break Purple Tzo Crystals using their normal attacks.
  • Earlier videos show that Prism Break's Summon Crystal Shard ability originally made crystals come up from underground rather than fall from the sky like in the final game. However in the 3DS version, they still come up from the ground.

  • As a Series 2 figure, he has his Crystalline Armor on his back and his pedestal has protrusions of crystals sticking out from a Crystal Eruption.
