Thumpling is one of the four Sidekicks in Skylanders: Giants. He is a miniature version of the Water Giant, Thumpback.
The Skylander Minis started off as regular "Sidekicks," assisting the Skylanders on many exciting adventures. And what they lacked in size they more than made up for in courage. Ultimately determined to become full-fledged heroes, they trained at the Skylands Academy - honing their powers and skills until they were ready. Now, they stand side by side with their full grown counterparts, ready to defend Skylands against Kaos and his evil minions.
- His name is a play on the word "dumpling".
- He is the second Skylander whose name is a pun on a food, the first being Hot Dog.
