Blink is a confident young mole who is always up for a challenge. He does, however, have "fresh-air-a-phobia," a deathly fear of not being trapped underground.
Being a mole, Blink has the ability to dig through dirt. He also has some gadgets created by his uncle, the Professor. His weaponry consists of Blink bombs (can carry 10 at a time) and two laser-cannons which are connected to his gloves. His goggles are able to find living objects (such as enemies or fodder for Sparx) and diggable rubble.
Spyro: A Hero's Tail
Blink first appeared after being rescued from a cage by Spyro in Crocovile Swamp, mentioning he'd "make a great sidekick," if it weren't for his "fresh-air-a-phobia." He helped Spyro in his quest to save the Realms from Red's rule.
Spyro: Shadow Legacy
Blink appeared later in Shadow Legacy after vacationing in Dragon Shores. He returned to the Forgotten Worlds, where it was soon engulfed by the Calamity, and Blink, along with the Professor, Sis, and Willard were trapped in the Shadow Realm. After being freed by Spyro, Blink volunteered to dig deeper into the depths of Moleville and came across a large cavern, only to be blasted by Red's dark magic. He later recovered from the attack, and Blink was seen celebrating Spyro's primary victory over the Sorcerer, before the mole began his preparations for the villain's next move...
In A Hero's Tail, there are four mini-games for Blink; one in each of the Realms. In the mini-games you are to destroy the required amount of Dark Shards underground within 30 minutes, digging up gems and finding entrances through walls. The first time this is completed, you win a Dragon Egg; the second time Blink kindly hands over a Light Gem.
The realms where Blink's mini-game can be found are:
- Crocovile Swamp: Completely Swamped
- Coastal Remains: All Washed Up
- Frostbite Village: Snowed Under
- Dark Mine: Mined Out
- In Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy, he is incorrectly named "Blinky."
- This may be just a nickname.
- Blink's hat was originally going to be red instead of purple, as seen in early screenshots.
- Blink is voiced by Tara Strong.
