The Skylanders SuperChargers amiibo figures are a cross between the regular Skylanders figurines and amiibo. This crossover line consists of two versions of the Bowser and Donkey Kong amiibo figures that simultaneously work as the other figurines from the Skylanders series by simply twisting the base. As the game they were made for, Skylanders SuperChargers, had vehicles as its main gimmick, these figures also came with their own vehicle figures.
The figures were released on September 20 2015 in North America and in Europe on September 25 2015, alongside Skylanders SuperChargers for Wii U, and its racing spinoff Skylanders SuperChargers Racing for Wii and Nintendo 3DS.
While Bowser and Donkey Kong (and their respective vehicles) are available as standalone packs, Starter packs containing the two are also available, with Bowser being in the starter pack of the 3DS version of Skylanders SuperChargers Racing and Donkey Kong in Wii U's Skylanders SuperChargers. Dark versions also exists, but are exclusive to their games' respective Dark Edition starter packs.
These amiibo-Skylanders hybrids do not work with Skylanders games released on non-Nintendo consoles such as the Xbox One.
Like all Skylanders, Bowser and Donkey Kong, there known as Hammer Slam Bowser and Turbo Charge Donkey Kong, respectively, can be played as when scanned whenever their figure is set on Skylanders mode. Hammer Slam Bowser is of the Fire Element while Turbo Charge Donkey Kong is of the Life Element. Their respective vehicles, the Clown Cruiser and Barrel Blaster, are from the Air Element and Tech Element respectively.
As they are introduced in this game, Bowser and Donkey Kong take their role as the eponymous SuperChargers, a group of Skylanders able to pilot some of the most powerful vehicles in Skylands. They are able to use Rift Engines to not only power up themselves but their vehicles as well. The SuperChargers are in need of the story to defeat Kaos once again, who had unleashed a device known as the Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction.
When a SuperCharger pilots their signature vehicle, the vehicle becomes SuperCharged and thus more powerful. A SuperCharged Clown Cruiser becomes more reminiscent of Bowser's airship while a SuperCharged Barrel Blaster lets Diddy Kong copilot.
As they are based on Bowser and Donkey Kong,, these amiibo have the exact same functions as any other of their respective amiibo in other games.
