  • Nightmare mode

    Successfully complete the game to unlock the Nightmare difficulty.

  • Easy money

    After defeating Kaos in the final level of the game, the Crane Deck becomes filled with gold (between 6000-8000). If you pick up the gold, then press Guide and return to the Xbox 360 dashboard menu without saving, the Skylander should keep the gold, but the game will return the gold to the Crane Deck since you did not save. You can repeat this as many times as desired to quickly unlock all the moves for all the Skylanders, and purchase any hats/charms that are expensive. Note: Remember to pick up the Winged Sapphire from the Crane Deck after Level 15. Picking this up saves the game. If you touch it after picking up the gold, the gold will not re-appear.
