Name's Nightshade, by the way. Best thief in all of Skylands
~ Nightshade

Nightshade is a master thief and one of the trappable villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. A Dark Trap is required to trap him.

He is voiced by Gavin Hammon.


A charismatic ninja thief, Nightshade is by far the most famous burglar that Skylands has ever known. Very smooth, charming, classy, and old-school cool. He was born rich and doesn’t need the treasure he steals. He only does it to show off how awesome he is. When the Core of Light was destroyed and the Dark Realm was cut off from the rest of Skylands, Nightshade was rumored to have finally retired from the game. But now that the Midnight Museum is set to host one of Skylands’ rarest treasures, the Dark Eye of Unvisibility, everyone knows it’s only a matter of time before Nightshade resurfaces for one last, big heist.

Skylanders: Trap Team

During the events of Trap Team, Buzz and the Skylander ventured to the newly opened Midnight Museum to stop Nightshade from stealing the Dark Eye of Unvisibility. The master thief was able to swipe the dark artifact and escape, but was pursued by the Skylander. Nightshade was soon cornered at the end of the Museum where he engaged the Skylander in battle. He was soundly defeated and was captured in a Dark Trap.
