Software, a computerized piece of goo, is a new Core Skylander introduced in Skylanders: Imaginarium. He is of the Tech element.

Background Edit

Personality Edit

Software is known as one of the smartest Skylanders in the Imaginarium, despite his physical appearance and attacks. Although he seems like he doesn't know what he's doing, Software has a brilliant battle strategy that is only unique to him. You'll learn more soon...

Biography Edit

Throughout the short history that the Imaginarium has been through, there has never been a species of computerized goop, which means that Software's existence defies scientific explanation. No one knows where he came from, or how he even came to be. All folks know was that Lucas had seen Software roaming the village, summoning digital versions of Chompies. Realizing that the computerized goop was alone, the young Portal Master decided to take Software into his home for one night. Within that night, Software explained his very existence, but forced Lucas to swear not to tell anyone else...not even his own Skylanders. Unaware of where he came from, the Skylanders usually question his loyalty, but as long as he fights for the side of good, the Skylanders will trust him.

Appears in Skylanders: Imaginarium
While Software possesses no physical attack whatsoever (which is why he has low stats), he is capable of performing something else beyond any other Skylander's power. Software is able to scan the database of enemies and download them into his memory. He is then able to send them out as digital copies of the original enemy.

Abilities Edit

Software's moveset is different from other Skylanders. Unlike all of the others, he doesn't have a primary attack until his secondary attack is successful. Even when it is, Software only has a limited amount of times he can use it.

Trivia Edit

  • Software is one of Lucas's Original Ten Skylanders.
    • In the Imaginarium, he is the fifth Skylander to join the team. However, when developed by the creator, he was the ninth Skylander created.
  • Out of all of the Original Ten, Software is the weakest AND has the strangest upgrade chain...
  • Software has been through a few changes in development.
    • He used to have attacks where he would send out techno waves. This was changed, however.
    • The day after the creator created his first eight Skylanders, Software and Soul Stealer were created to be the Light and Dark Skylanders of the Original Ten, respectively. However, because their concepts seemd more Tech and Undead than Light and Dark, Software and Blind Sight swapped elements.
  • At launch, Software will be the only new Core Skylander not to be in a triple pack with any other Core Skylanders. Instead, he will be in a Triple Pack with two reimagined Skylanders, Volcanic Bomber Eruptor and Spectrum Whirlwind.
    • This is an example of how he always feels he is excluded from the fun the other Core Skylanders are having, and that his only real friend is Lucas.
  • His catchphrase and part of his upgrade name shares the same name with another Skylander, named Download.
    • Ironically, both Software and Download are Tech element Core Skylanders, they will both be released in the first update, both are computerized in some way, and both are named after computer terms.
  • In a future update of the game, a reimagined version of Software will be released. Details are unknown.
  • He is the only character who says whatever his new nickname is when switching to a new nickname.
