Skylanders: Trap Team is a sequel to Skylanders: Swap Force, now featuring a loudmouth portal, mini variations of the characters, stronger variations of characters from the original game, and tiny crystals to Trap enemies within and bring them on board your Team.
Early Character Names
As with preceding games, many of the characters have their names used from the development phase left on their related files, the only exceptions being Bushwhack and Knight Light. Characters from the original Spyro's Adventure and Giants also use their placeholder names, with no difference. Oddly enough, characters from Swap Force appear with their finalized names intact.
Of special note, Krypt King's early name King Cut actually appeared in early promotional posts for the game as well.
Additionally, several villains also had placeholder names during development.
|Brawl N Chain
|Dream Twin (also Evil Head/Evil Twin in her Skystones files)
|Wilikin Bot 9000
|Tae Kwon Crow
Trailblazer has a separate set of files indicating he was originally intended to have an in-game variant. However no such toy was made and forcing the game to load these files reveals no difference in character model.

A life element character with the placeholder name "Harvester" was also intended at one point, though completely unfinished. If the game is forced to load his files, he'll appear as a green Jet-Vac, with a pink beta Chompy Mage portrait that says Placeholder next to it and no audio save for his weapon. His upgrade screen uses images from Spyro's, but the purchasable upgrades use placeholder text such as Upgrade1, Upgrade2, and so forth. Additionally, he has no walk animation, instead sliding along the ground. Despite these, he has a fully functional moveset: X will fire his gun, Y will cause him to shoot the ground in a rocket jump, and B will cause him to toss his gun forward as an attack and pull another from the ground. Doing this will also cause him to cycle between three different types of X attacks: the default is a close range shotgun blast of orange flowers, the second a sniper-rifle with a long red beam of light, and the third a machine gun attack of blue flowers that travel along the ground, cycling back to the first from here. Each use up an energy meter depending on the strength of the attack, and once depleted the player will have to press B to reload into the next gun type.

This track was supposed to play when you are climbing up Chompy Mountain before fighting Chompy Mage. In the final game no music is heard in that section.
