Hoot Loop (Swap Force)
Critical Hit:6
Elemental Power:25


Hoot Loop's top half is pure magician fare all the way through. His default method of attack is the "Dejaboom," a simple projectile attack that strikes three times. It can be upgraded to produce bouncing projectiles that explode on their third bounce. Hoot Loop's other top half attack is more of an enemy deterrent that allows you to take them down with less of a struggle. This ability is called Hypnotism, and it primarily acts as a slowing attack. Upgrades increase the scope of the hypnotism and allows Hoot Loop to wear down multiple enemies at once.

The second part of Hoot Loop's name is for the hoop it hovers around on as part of his bottom half. This hoop allows the feathered Skylander to teleport around the environment, harming anyone that comes into contact with him as he surfaces. As you upgrade this attack, the loop becomes something of a black hole that sucks enemies in, and his ultimate attack is the Infinite Loop, a devastating ability that causes a giant pulse to explode from the loop itself.

Above all, Hoot Loop excels at crowd control. Each teleport is capable of dealing massive damage to mobs, so if you're adept at kiting baddies around, you'll find your Skylander leveling up faster than others. His offensive capabilities are a lot of fun to use, but the Hypnosis ability is admittedly the weaker link, especially if you consider yourself the kind of player who likes to rush headlong into the fray.

Of course, this is a Swap Force Skylander, so your effectiveness is governed by your creativity. And in the end, Hoot Loop's top and bottom half capabilities mix well with whatever else you've got laying around.
