Skylanders: Trap Team
Cloudcracker is not the first prison from which Dreamcatcher has escaped. She had actually escaped from Lucid Lockdown within the Realm of Dreams – before escaping from the dream realm itself! Not only can she read your mind while you're sleeping but she can bring your worst nightmares to life. Using her mischievous powers of dream-stealing, she has driven entire villages to the point of madness – all for the sheer thrill of it. Her playfully evil nature is what got her noticed by the Golden Queen, who needed a good psychic for her evil schemes… and also for relationship advice. Loving both cunning plans and gossip, Dreamcatcher was happy to oblige and promptly joined the Doom Raiders. Although due to her aforementioned mischievous nature, the Golden Queen has found the relationship advice questionable.
In Skylanders Academy, Dreamcatcher has a similar reputation to her mainstream counterpart in terrorizing others through their dreams for fun. Because of it, her parents sent her to Skylanders Academy in the hopes that she would be reformed.
Dreamcatcher takes the appearance of a giant floating head. She has sky blue skin and dark blue hair with a pink polka dot ribbon. In her evolved form, she has red hair and wears a yellow ribbon with green stars.
Dreamcatcher is a mischievous and cruel sadist who enjoys driving others insane with her dream manipulation, though when confronted she will make petty excuses for her cruel behavior. She has the attitude of a stereotypical teenage girl, occasionally speaking with text phrases such as "OMG" and "TTYL". She is also bothered by people who actually enjoy her nightmares and reacts with more violent pranks to enjoy messing with them to turn the table against them.
In TV Series Skylanders Academy, Dreamcatcher's personality is basically the same as she established to be already a sadist, to begin with simply because being a good citizen is boring. This concerned her parents that they sent her to the titular academy to be reformed.

After discovering that she was too focused on her investigation that made her forgot to sleep and her friends' fear on sheep might have something to do with nightmares about them, Stealth Elf then goes to sleep, and predictably, she had a nightmare where a huge sheep tormented her. However, Stealth Elf, who predicted that this would happen, resists and discovered it was Dreamcatcher who tampered everyone's dreams to the point where they afraid of sheep. A battle ensues, where at first Dreamcatcher had better advantages thanks with her dream manipulation powers, but Stealth Elf, whom realizing how Dreamcatcher's powers worked and she realized that she had better control over her dreams than Dreamcatcher, she managed to defeat her by turned her dreams against the dream manipulator.
Not long afterward, Stealth Elf, who awakened from her dream duel with Dreamcatcher om the next day, caught her opponent floating beside her, revealed that she snuck into her room to tamper her dream.
