Be Afraid of the Bark!
~ -Tree Rex's official catchphrase

Tree Rex is a mutated tree in Skylanders: Giants, leader of the Skylanders Giants, and also the most recognizable of the Giants, as he comes with and is exclusive to the starter pack of the game. He is also playable in all mainstream games following Giants.

He is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson who also voices Stump Smash.

Official Biography

Long ago before the Giants protected Skylands, Tree Rex was a majestic tree living peacefully in the ancient woods. But this tranquil peace came to an end when the Arkeyans built a nearby factory to produce war machines. After years of his soil being poisoned by the magic and tech waste from the factory, he mutated into who he is now - a powerful Giant who will crush anything that threatens the natural order of things.


As a Giant, Tree Rex is significantly stronger than the wave of Skylanders that came before him. In some of the different Skylanders games, Tree Rex has his own in-game abilities, but overall, his abilities stem from his Talking Tree Physiology. Additionally, he has red, mutated bark on his right hand with spikes, which he uses to crush things, slam the ground, charge as if he were a juggernaut, and even extend the spikes on the bark to impale people. His body allows for super strength and super durability, as he is both stronger and more durable than normal Skylanders. His abilities include:

  • Shockwave Slam: Tree Rex slams the ground with his massive fist.
    • Big Thorn Shockwave Slam: Tree Rex extends the spikes on his giant, red hand, and slams the ground even harder, shaking the ground even more and sending a larger shockwave.
  • Sequoia Stampede: Tree Rex charges ahead with his red fist in front of him, damaging all enemies in his path.
    • Super Stampede: The spikes on his red fist protrude farther, allowing his juggernaut charge to do more damage.
      • Ultimate Stampede: The ultimate version of Sequoia Stampede, with Tree Rex performing at max efficiency to deal even more damage. Can be upgraded alongside Lightfooted to make the duration of his charge longer and faster, making him able to destroy as much as he can.
    • Titanic Elbow Drop: Tree Rex interrupts his charge to deal a crushing elbow drop attack that's sure to seriously damge opponents that aren't larger than him.
  • Photosynthesis Cannon: Tree Rex harnesses the power of the sun and shoots blasts of chlorophyll at his opponents as a long ranged attack.
    • Treefolk Tripleshot: Tree Rex shoots the Photosynthesis Cannon in bursts of three.
      • Life Laser: Tree Rex can charge his Photosynthesis Cannon to release a continuous beam that pierces through enemies. This ability is only shown in the 3DS version of Skylanders.
  • Woodpecker Pal: Tree Rex can obtain a woodpecker to assist him on his quest to bring peace to Skylands, nesting on Tree Rex's shoulder and pecking at enemies around him. This ability is awarded if Tree Rex finds his specific Soul Gem in Skylanders: Giants.
  • Tap and Sap: Tree Rex is able to form underground roots from his body after digging part of his limb into the ground, and manipulating the roots to snare an opponent from mid-range. Mentioned in Skylanders: Battlecast.



  • Kevin Michael Richardson voices Tree Rex, as well as Stump Smash. Ironically, both of them are very similar Skylanders, as both are made of bark and both smash things, with the only difference being Tree Rex being the much larger of the two.
  • His name is a pun on the universally famous T. rex, and they both bear similarities, as the T. Rex is also known as the "King of the Dinosaurs", and Tree Rex is known to be the leader of the Giants.
  • One of his battle cries, "Bouncy Bouncy!", is the name of one of Eye-Brawl's upgrades.
