Ermit is a supporting character in Skylanders: Giants. He is a semi-crazy hermit who despises clouds, believing them to be evil and more dangerous than Kaos. He also appears in Hot Dog's and Fright Rider's Heroic Challenges.
He was the first one to witness Kaos' return to Skylands. He was busy working on a book about the "dangers of clouds" when the clouds started to swirl around in a dark way and a mysterious figure shout of the sky like a comet. He runs to where it crashed and finds out it was actually Kaos who had used a portal on Earth to return to Skylands and get revenge on the Skylanders with the help of an Arkeyan Conquertron.
