|“||Hail to the whale!||„|
|~ -Thumpback's official catchphrase|
Thumpback is a sea monster in Skylanders, an anthropomorphic possibly mutated humpback whale. He is the Giant for the Water element.
Thumpback was once a crew member of The Phantom Tide, the most fearsome pirate ship in all of Skylands. But the actual pirating part about being a pirate didn't interest Thumpback so much as the benefits that came with traveling on a large ship. After all, his real passion was fishing. But when his chance came to finally ensnare the most elusive creature in the sky - the Leviathan Cloud Crab - he was pulled over board and carried off into the horizon. This was actually quite fortunate, because sometime later The Phantom Tide and its entire crew were banished to the Chest of Exile. However, the massive cloud crab got away, but that was only a minor setback. Thumpback's pirating days were over, but his legend as one of the first Skylanders had just begun.
As one of the first Skylanders, Thumpback is a Skylander Giant.
- Thumpback is a Skylander mutation of a humpback whale, since he has teeth (humpback whales do not have teeth) and overly rough
- His sidekick miniature version is Thumpling
