Backstory[edit | edit source]

Skree belongs to a race of hitchhiking witchdoctors. Mysticism and superstition are a big part of Skree’s heritage. After being dumped on the Starstorm by a space trucker. Skree found himself all alone on an abandoned space station filled with mighty looking robots. Mistaking the robots’ station for a burial ground of ancient space spirits, he decided to live the rest of his life in service to the silenced automatons. He spent his time on collecting different parts of the battle station to create shrines for his newly found robot gods and connected robot parts and machine scraps to form huge robotic statues and altars. Unbeknownst to Skree, his rigging rites accidentally shortly activated the mainframe of the Starstorm, powering the construction robots and the Starstorm’s weapons systems itself.

All of a sudden Skree found the Starstorm vibrating as it’s systems slowly started to come online, it’s robotic denizens starting to carry out their age-old grim directive. Skree decided he liked his spirit-gods better when they were statues and went into hiding.

Skree was found by the Awesomenauts on the Starstorm hiding in one of his shrines in the Starstorm’s ventilation systems, praying to make the evil robots go back to sleep. Thinking the Awesomenauts were magical spirit-guides, Skree adopted a new vision quest and joined the Awesomenauts to seek out better spirit-gods to worship.

Skin Information[edit | edit source]

Skreeletor[edit | edit source]

SkreeletorSplashArt.png

In the deepest of evil lairs, the infamous villain Skreeletor can be found trying to turn his dreams of universal conquest into reality. Having found hints of a powerful artifact known only as 'the Golden Weedling', he will do everything in his power to locate and claim this galaxy-conquering tool as his own. The only obstacle in his path is a small tribe of He-Mon'grahs from planet Skrultor Prime trying to obtain the very same artifact.


This DLC contains a custom skin for Skree in Awesomenauts, and comes with a fully customized voice set! - Official Steam Store description.


Based on Skeletor from the He-Man and the Masters of The Universe franchise, this skin gives Skree an undead look, giving him a skeletal head with glowing yellow eyes. He wears a hood, a cape and barbaric-looking armor with spiky shoulderpads. His hoverblade gets a skull with horns ornament and his staff has a skroggle (Gnaw's species) skull ornament as well.

Saw Blade has a skull and a pentagram glyph and Totem of Power looks like a skull as well.

Being premium, this skin comes with custom voice acting.

Sun Wukong Skree[edit | edit source]

Sunwukongsplashart.png

This skin requires the Awesomenauts base game AND the Awesomenauts: Starstorm expansion.

A merchant travelling to the western edges of the Galaxy for an unknown purpose once met a strange being on an asteroid. He allowed the being to accompany him, and listened to the many stories that he shared with him.

The being came into this world by the name of Sun Wukong, and claimed to wield unimaginable powers. The merchant scoffed at his new companion, and told him "You look like a Monkey, but if you truly are a primate you would be a King among them."

Sun Wukung glared at the merchant and zapped him with lightning, burning to him to a crisp. "They called me the Monkey King once, but none remain to do so now. I have become Skree, and I am free!"

Sun Wukong continued his journey to the western edges of the Galaxy alone.

This DLC contains a custom skin for Skree in Awesomenauts: Starstorm. - Official Steam Store description.


Inspired by the ancient Chinese novel Journey to the West[28], this skin gives Skree the looks of Sun Wukong, making him more similar to a monkey, including the tail and giving him armor decorated with golden details and Chinese dragons. Skree's staff is replaced by Sun Wukong's staff and he rides a cloud instead of his usual sawblade.

Although lightning rod is unchanged, sawblade has an Yin & Yang symbol drawn in it and totem of power is replaced by a totem that also looks like a staff with a golden chinese dragon wrapped around it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being available in the game's files for several months, Skree's autoattack voice lines were only added in-game at a later patch.
  • Originally, Skree was going to be able to go invisible and leave his hoverblade, walking on foot. This concept was abandoned in favor of the current design.
  • Skree is the only 'Naut who has special quotes for something other than an Awesomenaut (Gnaw's Weedlings).
  • Before being chosen to be Skree's voice actor, Quinn "Weazel" Chert auditioned to voice Swiggins, but wasn't chosen for the role.
  • Skree features a special teleporting animation, where he begins to look directly upwards and holds his staff upright, similar to when the player aims up with their cursor.
  • According to his own Taunt line, Skree is 700 years old.
