Edition: Fright Rider
Fright Rider is a new character released for the Skylander GIANTS world. He is an Undead Type knight of sorts and rides upon an undead steed of some variety (perhaps an Ostrich?). This mechanic is completely new to the Skylander universe and I personally welcome any and all differentiation in the characters. The design works well although I feel he should have more defense being a mounted unit. Fright Rider turns into a formidable combatant with entertaining special moves and a good mix of close and ranged attacks. Spinning spear strikes are especially effective.

He does tend to have a slight pause between attacks which leaves him vulnerable after a combo. On 3DS he is moderate jumper.

From a toy/collectible perspective, this is one of my personal favorites. Fright Rider has a neat name, unique design and is well painted and posed.

Edition: Fright Rider
Fright Rider is not only an interesting looking Skylander, but one with a neat backstory! Rider and his ostrich Fright were once the best jousting team in Skylands, but when a rival sent Rider to the underworld, Fright turned himself into a skeleton and journeyed there himself to rescue his longtime friend. They are now dedicated to helping others all across Skylands. An added cool factor is that they're one of the two Skylanders that are actually composed of two characters, the elf and the ostrich.

Speed: Average
Fright's movements can be a little awkward, but I wouldn't call him slow. If you still don't find him fast enough, I'm sure a hat would fix the problem quickly.

Primary Attack
As a jousting team, you can easily guess that the attack one button is used for spear related melee attacks. If you press attack one three times in a row, Fright will lash out and bite at enemies as well. The spear is eventually upgraded first to a powerful Ghoul Glaive, then to an even more powerful Halberd of Horror; both upgrades cause your spear to change in appearance. If you choose the Sir Lance A Lot upgrade path, your melee attack becomes more powerful, you gain the ability to hold in attack one and release several small undead ostrich heads to attack your enemies from underground, and you get much better combos. Attack one, attack one, attack two gives you Spear Vault, where Rider will vault off the back of Fright and slam into enemies. Attack one, attack one, attack three gives you Skull Slam, where Fright will rear up and slam his head down.

Secondary Attack
Also related to their way of life, Fright Rider's secondary attack consists of them jousting forward in a short, fast charge with the spear.

Toy: 5/5 Great Personality, a sort of two in one package, they look amazing!

Attack: 4/5 He's got a wide variety of excellent attacks all around. No matter which path you choose it will be a sure win

HP/Defense: 3/5-A little below average, he's gonna need hats/challenges/charms.

Speed: 4/5 he's fast when he's moving and his birdy can give you bursts of speed.

I highly recommend him

My son loves Skylanders of any kind and wants them all.
Haven't found a skylander yet that isn't fun to play with, in and out of the game!
We would recommend.

Another undead knight to go with my Sky Knight collection. As long as you level and max figures they will be powerful. Magic Skylanders for whatever reason (with Exception of Spyro and Enigma) are weak in all areas no matter how much I raise them. They can go down in one hit! even the Special (Giant, Swap , Trap Master) Skylanders are weak. Their Special abilities may sound cool but it's nothing If they can not keep up with the other Skylanders base stats.
