We got Skylanders for the kid for Christmas.
Consequently, I've been playing a fair amount of Skylanders.
It's got good points and bad points, but it is fun to play, so I guess overall we'll have to call it a win.

Via Chapter Select I can go back to previous areas that have already been played and attempt to "complete them" (find all the stuff, visit all the areas, do a speed run, eventually earn 3 stars for the chapter by doing all of the above). I've certainly played me some Spyro before, so going back to old levels to finish them off is nothing new.

This toy-based gambit is really built right into the game though, you can't go through these elemental portals without the right kind of action figure. The base pack comes with 3 which represents 3 of the 8 elements. Which means that I can only complete a chapter if I've got the right toys for it. Which leads me to the question:
Which chapters do I have the right Skylander/elements to complete?

As a bonus, which chapters am I only missing a single Skylander/element in order to complete?

Visiting each chapter and writing stuff down would be a bit time-consuming, so a nice list would be helpful.

This sounds like a really evil game to try to play... DLC that isn't DLC, it's ISC (in-store content), except it isn't really ISC, cause it's on the disc, but unlocked by ISC? I'm getting confused just thinking about it... –  Aeo Jan 9 '12 at 17:54

Yes, there's a lot of content in the game that you can't play unless you (or a visiting friend) buy additional toys at the store. The bonus content is another question, but I think that content is actually in the toy you buy and it adds a new content expansion to the game. But yes, it's utterly, horribly, and evilly commercial. Which wouldn't at all matter if it wasn't also fun to play. Dammit. –  Task Jan 9 '12 at 18:06
    
So far I only have the original three and Hex. I'm on the last level. It really doesn't matter if you have all of them. Its a good idea to get more though because then you wont keep dying (resting) and restarting like me. –  Karissa Jan 23 '12 at 2:24
    
If it's 100# run, then you need at least 1 of each element. But if not, any number will do it. –  cameron Nov 7 '12 at 14:55

I'll list all chapters and the character types required to complete them, bold chapters can be completed without any additional Skylanders, and italic chapters require one extra type. Bold types are included with the game this, of course will be full of spoilers:

  1. Shattered Island - Magic, Water, Tech
  2. Perilous Pastures - Tech, Life, Water
  3. Sky Schooner Docks - Undead, Earth
  4. Stormy Stronghold - Life, Air
  5. Oilspill Island - Fire
  6. Dark Water Cove - Magic, Water
  7. Leviathan Lagoon - Water
  8. Crystal Eye Castle - Undead, Earth
  9. Stonetown - Life
  10. Treetop Terrace - Magic
  11. Falling Forest - Earth
  12. Troll Warehouse - Life, Fire
  13. Goo Factory - Air, Fire
  14. Battlefield - Undead
  15. Crawling Catacombs - Undead
  16. Cadaverous Crypt - Tech, Earth
  17. Creepy Citadel - Air
  18. Molekin Mine - Tech
  19. Lava Lakes Railway - Fire
  20. Quicksilver Vault - Life
  21. Arkeyan Armory - Earth, Air
  22. Lair of Kaos - Magic

Extra Level Packs:

  • Pirate Seas - Life (Comes with an Earth skylander) (Terrafin)
  • Darklight Crypt - Fire (Comes with an Undead skylander) (Ghost Roaster)
  • Empire of Ice - Undead (Comes with a Water skylander) (Slam Bam)
  • Dragon's Peak - Air (Comes with a Fire skylander) (Sunburn)

To summarize the answer, 6 chapters can be 100% completed with only the base characters
