Captain Skabb was the captain of the Pirates that captured Spyro. He is also responsible for the capture of Hunter, Cynder and Mole-Yair, as well as other various inhabitants. He is one of the bosses in The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night.
Skabb is ultimately killed by Spyro, backing up onto the plank in a wild show of pain before he plummets to the ocean below. The fate of his parrots and his fleet are unknown.
Captain Skabb was also one of Malefor's minions, and has been rewarded with an upcoming resurrection in Spyro and Friends meet Peter Pan as an ally to Captain Hook.
Skabb is very large, very strong, and above all, very stupid. His tongue hangs out from his mouth and he has a large scar over his face. He has a large treasure chest strapped to his back, where Sniff mans a small connon inside. He has only one arm. The other one is a hook that is attached to an elastic rope so that he can use it to hit people. He also has a mini cannon gun for one leg. Skabb also wields a huge cutlass.
Since Skabb is stupid, the only things he can say are short, incomprehensible grumbles. He has two parrots, Scratch and Sniff, who speak for him. Scratch is intelligent and sarcastic, and he does the talking for Skabb. He sits on Skabb's left shoulder. He is brown and has a tail like a rat's, has only one eye and a stich on his chest. The other one, Sniff, sits beside a chest that holds a small canon. He looks very much like Scratch, only he is purple, and has an eye patch on the opposite eye. He shouts insults and backtalks. He often calls people "fo's" which is slang for fool. After Spyro defeats Skabb, Scratch flies away, and Sniff gets knocked out (possibly killed) by Sparx, who couldn't take any more of his insults. Scratch and Sniff are the actual captains of the Fellmuth, which possibly makes Skabb their first mate.
Strangely, he speaks perfect English in the DS version of the game.
