It's a Skylander's Wonderful Life is a Christmas animation special by Black Rhino Ranger. This is the third Skylanders christmas special BRR made (The first is Skylanders Christmas and another is Skylanders Xmas Carol. This is also the 4th chapter of the Empty Vault Pentalogy.
With the vault still empty of cash, Spyro is having problems with room temperatures, bills and electricity. He also didn't buy any presents. He wished he wasn't a Skylander anymore. Suddenly, a central bearded dragon named Beard Pierce appeared next to Spyro. If he shows Spyro what it's like if Spyro never was a Skylander, he'll grow wings and give Spyro a reward.
In the reality where Spyro didn't become a Skylander, Kaos had already took over Skylands, enslaving all innocent beings. That's not all of it. Because of this, the Skylanders don't exist. But Spyro's friends do exist but have changed their ways.

- Trigger Happy is poor and homeless
- Eruptor is banished to a frozen wasteland and is in desperate need for warm shelter.
- Roller Brawl was been forced to marry Kaos
- The Giants and the Swap Force who were Skylanders before were still missing.
- Slam Bam and Terrafin had to keep fighting for their lives.
- Worst of all, Master Eon was frozen and is a permanent prisoner of Kaos.
- The only good thing about the change is that Star Strike never visited Skylands, and is happy to be on her planet.
Beard Pierce finally gets his wings (which is really a jet pack) and says goodbye to Spyro. Spyro believed he was still trapped in the alternate reality until Gill Grunt, Trigger Happy and Eruptor came looking for him and want him back home. Beard Pierce did bring him back to his reality.
Back home, a mysterious present was for Spyro. As he opened it, the lights were on again, there were presents under the tree and there was a table with tons of food. Spyro believed this was the reward Beard Pierce promised him. However, he was wrong but he did not know it. Beard Pierce was going to give him his own casino. However, a santa (who looks like a pony) walked by indicating she delivered the present.Beard Pierce decides to quit being a brony, but before spolingly revealed to be the devil.
