I've fallen through the playing area once or twice. In fact, I did it within 20 minutes of first playing the game on the first level.

Before this I saw him ride off in his cart.



This one got me further in the level.

@Wreckingballbob Thats Awesome!
I didn't have a chance to video it, but I had 2 glitches yesterday!
The first one was when I went in the arena with my Series 2 GITD Cynder. When it loaded... She was green and pink! Luckily she returned to normal when I exited the arena.
That was when the second one occurred. Basically, the whole camera angle of Woodburrow changed! It was now facing the yard instead of not really facing anywhere. I haven't checked back yet to see if its gone, but has anyone else had this? (Sorry if it was earlier in the thread but I didn't notice!)

I was just playing as Rubble Shake (completely upgraded, so Purple Shake and Black Rubble) and when I took damage, the Black on Rubble disappeared, but the purple on Shake stayed. A little while later, the sound effect of the purple coming back played, but it was already there anyway... And the Black on Rubble never came back.

Another really weird glitch:
I was playing as Spy Jet (again fully upgraded) and noticed a lot of glitches. First off, using the Spy Scanner, Shock Bomb, or the Spyder Sting make the Jet part lose its turrets and just straight up disappear. It would come back right away, but Spy Jet would just float in the air. Secondly, for some reason, Spy's firing arm was pointed down. It still did all the animations, but the grappling hooks were fired forward, it's just that his hand would do the animation downward. Same thing with the Spy Scanner, the laser pointed forward and it still did damage, just that the arm was pointed down. Whatever ever animation he did, the arm was down. Third, the Turret lost its missile launchers, but still launched missiles. And whenever you would jump, the turret would stay on Spy Jet's feet, vs doing a barrel roll in mid-air.

I actually experienced a strange glitch while fighting evil glumshanks. So glumshanks had about half of his health left and the parts to his vehicle were coming back but for some reason they flew upward. So glumshanks was just sitting there being vulnerable and it hasn't happened since.

Another glitch I encountered is in Motleyville when you come across that wall you need a cannon to blow up you talk to Clunker who shows you the way to Gibbs. But I've actually had a glitch where there was 2 Clunkers. One was standing in place while the other one was running in circles

One last glitch is that every so often arena modes become locked on the level select screen so I then have to go talk to snagglescale if want to do arena modes

^ that Glumshanks glitch would be amazing for Time Attack

Speaking of NPC glitches, the game seems to get all the Gillman models mixed up? I assumed this was a disc reading error but I installed the game and play it like that now, and it seems whenever I run into a Gillman NPC they have the character model of a different one or a glitchy expression (I've even seen one of the Gillmen in Cascade Glade, the one at the start of the Life area, with Snagglescale's model...)

Once, I used Scratch in Woodburrow, used Pounce on one of the chests- either as I was starting the lock puzzle or as the gold was flying out- and she fell through the floor... Though I was teleported back in.

I've been playing the 3ds version for a couple of weeks now and today I realized that Dark Spyro no longer registers in my system. I loaded him when I first started playing the game and have used him several times. Today, he doesn't show up in the game at all. All my other skylanders are still there. Weird! I will reload him later but has anyone else had this happen?

I had that glitch (as well as some other freezing) a few times as well on the Wii, but not anymore since I disconnected from the Internet.

I had that glitch too in PS3 version

Playing as Fire Kraken in Muddy Marsh Village, behind one of the sacks there is a "secret zone" where you get a chest or something like that, well in that zone I jumped over a water thank then I was able to move around the background of the level. I had to restart the checkpoint.

Doing stupid stuff as Sprocket (like nonsensical spam of mines and turrets),in the 10,000 Gallon Hat, when I tried to Ride one turret it exploded and Sprocket felt trough the level and never come back.

Tree Rex used Fly! It's not very effective...

And Eruptor, after flopping on the floor, turned his head like "IT'S NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE"

Next time it happens, if you have him, please try to dig into the ground/air using Rouser! smilie

I had a glitch with Flashwing in Woodburrow when I would partially charge the tail and then it would make the charging noise until I went somewhere else.

I also had one in Rampant Ruins with Freeze Buckler where I walked over to the robot foot to get the soul gem and I was trapped between the foot and the main area until I teleported back.

if people dont mention the system they are having the bug/glitch on. this will be a very pointless tracking thread.. so remember to mention the system you have the experience on. this is just a little friendly reminder, since we had a mess in the stt thread before people started doing it...

The dog (was his name Wibbles? I forgot) in FrostFest Mountains in the first village got "stuck" and was just running in place...as a result, he didn't present me my treasure chest so I had to replay the level. This was on XBO.

i had a similar issue, i had to go into the character info then register them for it to count. not sure what causes the issue but it seems to only like characters that have never been used in another game better.

Yet it will not award me the star.
Anyone having this problem?

I'm just about to start this on Wii U and I'm going to test something.

Someone had a theory that the accolades glitch was caused by an issue with the Swapper combo screen and you could avoid it if you registered all the Swapper combos before any other figures.

So, I'll start a new save file and try this theory out, because I haven't heard of anyone trying it. Hopefully it works because I'm a completionist and I hate the accolade glitch~.

Update 1: For those interested, I'm up to Winter Keep and got 100% on everything to this point without getting the accolades glitch. As soon as I got to Woodburrow, I registered my whole collection (which actually unlocked all the collection accolades smilie), swapper combos first, then all my Skylanders and Magic Items. I'll update again when I finally complete the whole game or if I run into the glitch, but I guess the best thing to do is register your collection and all swap combos right away and just hope you don't get the glitch?

Double post, but... Wait, I changed accounts.

Has anyone else had this glitch? I've only had it on Wii U and it seems to happen when I check my Skylander's Quests too quicky after I summon them. If it matters, I'm playing an Australian copy, using the Traptanium Portal on a USB extension cord.

This Free Ranger had max Gold, all upgrades and SF Quests completed. Triggered this numerous times and (though I haven't tried it on a Skylander who completed Giants Quests), it seems the values are always the same.

I haven't tried selecting anything when this happens, because I'm afraid it could cause data manipulation... I just back out from the Skylander screen and reenter it, which fixes this... But if anyone else tried messing with it, did anything interesting happen?

Also, update on my Accolades: so far I've got 100% in Story and SWAP Zone Challenges and no Collection Accolade glitch. I really think the best thing to do is register all SWAP combos ASAP and hope for the best. I also double-check my Collection Accolade list any time I earn a Star.

Edit: Just had a funny glitch. Completed Chomp Chomp Chompies, but didn't get the Charm from it (Delicious Food). I had to beat it again (although I did it on Easy because CCC is the hardest Survival stage, screw that!). Then I got the Delicious Food normally. IDK, just thought it was stupid, I've never had a glitch like that.

Also, I'm about 1/3 of the way through Survival and no Accolade Glitch so far! All I have left to do are 12 stages in Solo and all the Team stages.

I'm not sure what caused this glitch exactly but I have an idea on why it happened. (Console is Xbox360)
(Bad quality video)


I beat the fire viper with Slobber Tooth, but because I'm impatient I paused and went to Boney Islands from the pause screen so I wouldn't have to watch loading screen cutscenes and dialogue boxes.

I must have taken off Slobber Tooth at the wrong time and the game thought I was still playing as him, but had no data from the chip so it left me with whatever that immortal ghost in the video is.

When I went to another area the game would load the map and all the NPC's with their animations, but the UI would be gone and there was nothing to control. Even picking a different file didn't change anything, so I had to go to the dashboard and re-open the game.
