- "They're not kiddy games, they're fighting games... for kids."
Cragger has golden armour with a transparent flat blue stud (CHI), which is absent in the show. He has a red torn up cape. His head mould is earth green on top and olive green on the bottom with lots of jagged teeth. His left eye lacks any features and has a large scar around it, indicating he is half-blind. His arms are olive green but his hands are dark green. Cragger's torso is scaly with muscles and red straps shaped like an X and in the middle of his torso there is a circle of CHI, which is blocked by his harness in the set, but appears in the show. He has red straps continuing onto his legs. The bottom of his feet are printed with claws.
Cragger's weapon of choice in the show and in one set is the Vengdulize. The Vengdualize is a dual-sided golden chainsaw with massive blades and a short but beautifully detailed handle. It is in the shape of a crocodiles' jaws, and has red lasers in the middle when being used. Cragger carries it with him at all times, and uses it for combat, usually against Laval. Before this, he used a small one-sided wooden sword.
In the Ultimate Speedor Tournament, he uses the Vengious which is a one-sided, silver version of the Vengdulize, and a simple mace known as the Gronk. In the Croc Swamp Hideout, he uses the Grandourious, which has the exact same chainsaw as the Vengious, but has a longer handle, which has an axe attached. In the show, he carries a small gun that shoots Croc Flares, which sets off a full armed battle. He also uses his tail as a weapon, which proved very useful for catching enemies off guard.
Cragger was very competitive from the start. He was best friends with the prince of the Lion tribe, Laval, and the two played together for much of their younger years. However, Cragger and Laval sneaked into the room containing the pool of Chi, an extremely powerful energy source on Chima. Due to its potency, only those of a certain age were allowed to tap into it's raw energy. Still youthful and therefore not permitted to use it, Cragger's curiosity got the better of him and he placed an orb of Chi in his chest. Unprepared as he was for the effects of the energy, Cragger was overwhelmed by the power. After the power wore off, Worriz questioned him about the chi and Cragger tried to sneak into the Lion Temple again with Worriz. He was once again caught by the lions. When escaping, he set off a croc flare, which initiated an all-out war. He went to the Fangs, a dangerous place that Laval knew. The two had a talk, and it ended in Cragger apologizing for the Croc Flare, which Laval was unaware of. Cragger tries to talk to his parents, but to no avail. In the end, Cragger's parents fall off a cliff, and Cragger becomes king. Cragger knew that the lions were innocent, but his evil sister Crooler wanted him to destroy the lions, and gave him his father's golden helmet.
In episode 2: The Great Story, Crooler takes control of a depressed Cragger by using a Persuader Plant on him, and he declared war on the lions. After almost killing Laval after a Speedor tournament, Eris and Gorzan saved Laval. He retreats to get allies of his own and teamed up with the Wolves and Ravens. Cragger's plan was to launch a massive attack against the lions during Laval's age of becoming ceremony (while having Plomar inconveniently come during his speech). The attack worked well, and while Cragger's allies crippled the lions defenses, Cragger stole some Chi and made a run for it, with Laval in hot pursuit. Laval wins and tries to finish him, before he realizes that it's Cragger. After a lecture on peace, harmony, and Chi, Cragger throws Laval into a creek and steals back his stolen Chi. Even with the Eagles and Gorillas, the Lions are no match for the Crocodile forces. The effects of the flower wear of, and Cragger realizes that he's done something horrible to his best friend, and tries to save him, but is sprayed with the flower again. However, Laval comes back with a Legend Beast, shocking everyone. Cragger plugs an orb of Chi into his harness, but is swatted away, and is forced to retreat.
In episode 3, The Warrior Within, Crooler has seemingly took complete control over Cragger's mind, with him only questioning her statements when the effect wears off. He first comes in at the Lion Chi temple with his sister, asking for Chi. Despite Laval still being hostile, Lagravis still gives him the Chi, as it is the rule. Laval comes after them while they're leaving in his Command Ship, and warns them about their Chi usage. After Crawley is swatted away, and Crug is losing against Laval, Cragger gives Laval all of his Chi, with Crug bearing witness. He then broadcasts that the Lions stole their Chi, and will never give them any more, in front of his entire tribe. Laval and Eris come back to give the Chi back, but Cragger mumbles threats to them, (that his tribe can't hear) which forces Laval to scream "YOU'RE NEVER GETTING OUR CHI", in front of all the crocodiles, making them hate him even more. Laval throws their Chi down the Fangs, and keeps one to fight off their army. However, Cragger pushes him over, only for Laval to be saved by Eris' Eagle Intercepter. Cragger then sent a message to Razar and Worriz to come and attack Laval with their armies, but because Gorzan was protecting a flower on the road, they couldn't come. Because their allies were held back, Cragger had to retreat.When Laval goes to find the Legend Beast, Cragger cuts him off, and reveals that he still had an orb of Chi, which he uses. When everything heats up, Plomar comes in, annoying Cragger, Laval, and all of the Crocs. When they throw weapons at him and force him to leave, Cragger's forces and his Chi overwhelm Laval, until an army of Eagles and Lions come in to save him. However, Crooler comes up with another brilliant plan, thinking that the lions only have allies because they control the Chi.
Cragger, also appeared in the online webisodes, but his debut came surprisingly late. However, though his webisode debut was incredibly short showed that there was still hope for him. He refused to attack the lions, and when Crooler told him to "pay them a visit", he was happy, and thought that a visit with Laval would cheer him up, much to Crooler's annoyance. He also had a staring role in "Crocodile Evolution", where Crooler shows him the "helicroctor", a detaching helicopter attached to the command ship. When Eris comes up to him and asks if he's okay, Cragger is happy to see her and engages in a friendly conversation, until Crooler sprays him with the flower. He then mans the laser guns and shoots at Eris, and almost succeeded, until Eris flew up from a tree, which caused Crooler to have to swerve upwards, but the helicroctor flipped upside down.
- All of Cragger's main weapons are a play on the word "Vengeance".
