    —Spyro's official catchphrase

Spyro is a purple dragon who is the title character of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, and one of the playable Skylanders in the series. He has a Dark counterpart and a Legendary counterpart. He is one of the three Skylanders that come with the console version starter pack of Spyro's Adventure, the other two being Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy.

Spyro's Series 3 counterpart is Mega Ram Spyro.

Character Development

Fire Dragon

Fire Dragon, Spyro's original concept design

When the original concept of Spyro's Kingdom was still underway, Toys for Bob originally had a dragon character named Fire Dragon, who would later become Spyro. "Spyro was going to be a full-grown dragon and the king of Spyro's Kingdom. You'd go to him for quests, and he’d tell you where to go and help you on your adventures." While His Purple Majesty was originally going to be a benevolent and regal NPC, "it was felt that they couldn’t have a game called Spyro’s Kingdom without Spyro as a playable character, so Fire Dragon became Spyro."[1]



Although eager and young at heart, Spyro is a strong-willed dragon who is fearless and brave; a born hero dedicated to defending his world from all things evil. He holds a photographic memory, and as a result, has encyclopedic knowledge of all the islands and creatures in Skylands he has encountered, more so than any other Skylander. He is always up for adventure (his favorite kind being treasure hunts), and is the first Skylander to leap into action.

Spyro is a usual quick learner, able to master new abilities in a matter of hours.[2] Due to this, he is convinced that he can be good at everything so he can put his new powers to good use to help defend Skylands. However Spyro isn't used to not being able to learn new abilities right away, feeling greatly disheartened when he isn't able to harness them despite being trained by Master Eon, the greatest among the Portal Masters.

Although he is well in the company of his companions, Spyro possesses a headstrong and impulsive side. In The Machine of Doom, he believed that he could do everything by himself[3], implying that Spyro was used to doing heroics on his own prior to becoming a Skylander. This resulted in him struggling to work in a team at first (with his Skylander companions always reminding Spyro that he doesn't have to do everything by himself). However his headstrong trait has presumably diminished during the course of being a Skylander when Spyro gradually became more humble, as shown in Spyro versus The Mega Monsters when he shared his victory over Kaos with the other Skylanders who helped him. He always keeps his temper in check[4], but there are times when he allows his emotions to get the better of him.

After many adventures with the Skylanders, Spyro developed into a natural leader dedicated to scorching the forces of darkness.


Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. It's been said that the Scrolls of the Ancients mention Spyro prominently -- the old Portal Masters having chronicled his many exciting adventures and heroic deeds. Finally, it was Master Eon himself who reached out and invited him to join the Skylanders. Now calling Skylands his home, Spyro remains one of its most valued protectors, with evil facing a new enemy -- and the Skylanders gaining a valued ally.



Spyro Comic2

Spyro recalling his time at his homeland before his meeting with Master Eon.

Spyro is the great, stout-hearted hero of legend, not to mention the number one defender of Skylands. Hailing from a rare race of magic purple dragons, Spyro was born in a land far away from Skylands' furthest frontiers. From a young age, Spyro became a battler for good; a warrior against evil and protector of the peace. His fearless exploits and heroic adventures were even recorded in the Scrolls of the Ancients (and those Ancients didn't keep a record of just any old thing). One of the many Portal Masters who watched Spyro's success with acclaim and applause was the bearded legend himself, Master Eon. It was Eon who transported Spyro through the Portal of Power to his citadel at the Core of Light. Here, Spyro met the Skylanders squad and swiftly agreed to join them in battling all things nasty.[5]

During his time as one of the Skylanders, Spyro defeated the evil dragon Cynder when she was menacing the land for many years, freeing her from the sinister control of the Undead Dragon King, Malefor. After Cynder vowed to fight for good, she and Spyro went on a dangerous quest in which the Undead dragoness came out smiling. Afterwards, Spyro convinced Master Eon to sign Cynder up as one of the Skylanders.[6] Spyro was also the one who inspired Lightning Rod to become a Skylander after telling the storm giant his stories of faraway places and dangerous adventures.

There was an incident with Spyro when The Darkness attempted to corrupt the Core of Light. Spyro nearly suffered a terrible fate when he was almost consumed by the dark magic, but he was saved by Master Eon. The old Portal Master then taught Spyro how to control and focus his dark magic. When the young dragon fully harnessed it, he became his sinister alter-ego: Dark Spyro. Combined with his brave heart and careful control, Spyro was able to use this dark power to fight the forces of evil without losing himself to the darkness. But doing this worries his fellow Skylanders at times.

When a group of Skylanders absorbed Petrified Darkness and became darker versions of themselves after a battle with Kaos, it was Spyro who helped them tame that darkness to use it against evil, as he had learned to control that evil power previously. 

Skylanders: The Machine of Doom

Spyro, Gill Grunt, Eruptor and Boomer were on Eon's island with the other Skylanders listening to Gill Grunt's concert, much to their discomfort. Shortly afterwards, Flynn and Hugo crashlanded in their hot air balloon nearby, with Spyro having to save Boomer from where the balloon had landed due to the troll having put dynamite in his ears to mute out Gill Grunt's singing. Hugo informed the Skylanders and Master Eon urgent news of flying sheep attacking the Mabu Market, though the Skylanders didn't believe it at first until they saw an image of the market being attacked in Eon's portal.

After reaching the Market, Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Eruptor found out that the sheep weren't really flying, but were being carried by invisible trolls led by a Spell Punk. While the other Skylanders fought the trolls, Spyro went after the Spell Punk and captured him, forcing the wizard to reveal that they were looking for the Chattering Key and that he and the trolls were testing out an invisibility spell, but the trolls wanted to cause mayhem, therefore drawing attention to themselves. Appearing as a frightening projection of his head, Kaos scolded the Spell Punk, and transported the wizard and the remaining trolls back to his lair. Spyro confronted the floating head of Kaos and demanded to know why he was after the Chattering Key. The evil Portal Master refused to answer the young dragon and disappeared.

Machine of Doom Illustration5

Spyro leading his friends through the Forest of Fear

Back on Eon's island, Spyro learned from Hugo that the Arkeyans created the Chattering Key as an artifact used to opening a tomb that contains an ancient Arkeyan weapon that Kaos was seeking. Knowing that Kaos would go after such a weapon, the Skylanders decided to get the Key before Kaos does. Using Flynn to transport them to their next destination, the young dragon led Eruptor, Boomer, and Gill Grunt on a journey to the Forest of Fear where the Key is held. The Skylanders soon came in contact with the Fungus Rings of Despair that lies within the forest, trapping them in hallucinations of their worst fears. Spyro's irrational fear came to life, as he saw Master Eon in chains and being tortured by Kaos, who was absolute ruler of Skylands and the universe. The young dragon broke free of his fear by blasting fire at the hallucinations, and freed the other Skylanders from the grip of the Fungus Rings of Despair.

The Skylanders soon discovered the Chattering Key, which was being guarded by the statue of a stone wyvern called Fido. Spyro devised a plan, and his friends confuse the stone wyvern enough for the purple dragon to snag the Key, and the Skylanders made a quick getaway with the wyvern in hot pursuit. Before they can leave with the key, Kaos appeared, having captured Flynn. The evil tyrant revealed that he had used the Skylanders to brave the terrors of the Forest so that he can steal the key from them, and was willing to release Flynn in exchange for it.

Machine of Doom Illustration8

Spyro standing beside a snickering Kaos

Not wanting to endanger Flynn's life for the sake of their mission, Spyro gave Kaos the Chattering Key, and the tyrant summoned a tomb of the Pyramid of Just Rewards that contains the Arkeyan weapon, the Machine of Doom. Kaos opens the tomb, activating one of its pillars that destroys the advancing stone wyvern with a beam of light. The evil Portal Master then used Flynn as a hostage to keep the Skylanders from following him. With the help from the Chattering Key, Spyro and the Skylanders ventured inside the pyramid through the other side where they come across the Machine of Doom itself. As Kaos reached the Machine, Boomer eagerly tried to control the evil contraption but failed, and the weapon itself began to break apart and pyramid around them starts to crumble. As Kaos laughed maniacally at Boomer trying to control the Machine of Doom, Spyro was the only one who figured out Kaos' real scheme.

The machine was really a trap designed by the Arkeyans to capture anyone who might be tempted to steal a weapon capable of destroying the Core of Light, knowing that anyone who passed through the Forest of Fear, got the Chattering Key, and unlocked the tomb was too dangerous to walk free. Kaos tricked the Skylanders into seizing the Machine of Doom therefore springing the trap, intending to bury the heroes alive. As Kaos and his minions were making their escape as the pyramid crumbles around them, Flynn is rescued during the chaos. Spyro attempted to stop Kaos from escaping in his transport portal, but failed when the tyrant fired a magic lightning bolt at the young dragon.

Boomer, now having control over the Machine of Doom, used the mechanical titan to destroy the portal that Kaos was about escape in, and the robot could operated as a means to get out of the crumbling pyramid. Despite knowing that Kaos deserved to be left inside the pyramid in the very trap he tried to spring on the heroes, Spyro recalled Master Eon's ways on what the old Portal Master would do in a situation like this. Making his decision, the young dragon saved Kaos from being buried alive, and the Skylanders narrowly made their escape just as the pyramid crumbled down into a pit.

The Machine of Doom broke apart as a result of the endeavor, and the Skylanders landed outside of the crumbled remains of the pyramid while Kaos made his escape unnoticed. Spyro, Gill Grunt, Eruptor, and Boomer were then greeted by Master Eon, who Spyro informed that he and the other Skylanders had underestimated Kaos, but the young dragon declared that he won't do it again. Although Kaos has been stopped, Spyro knew that this was only the beginning since the evil Portal Master would strike again, but also knew that next time they would be ready. The young dragon then celebrated their victory as Gill Grunt began to sing a song again.

Skylanders: Mask of Power series

Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

Spyro and Stealth Elf

Spyro and Stealth Elf investigating Stinky Swamp

Spyro was training with Drill Sergeant, Jet-Vac, and Trigger Happy in mastering his Daybringer Flame attack, but ended up failing the training session when his attempt missed a Goliath Drow illusion and singed only Drill Sergeant and Trigger Happy. Disheartened at the fact that he failed his training again, Spyro was soon tasked by Master Eon to go with Stealth Elf to Stinky Swamp to find a terrible monster the elf had encountered. After saving a Mabu named Snuckles from a couple of Chompies, Spyro and Stealth Elf were attacked by an unusually, giant titchy toad. The toad's toxic saliva caused Spyro and Stealth Elf to fall asleep during the struggle, unable to save Snuckles from the giant titchy toad that was about to devour him and vampire vines that threatened to pull the Mabu apart. The Mabu was then saved by the arrival of Kaos, who used a magic staff to defeat the toad. The evil Portal Master claimed that he was turning over a new leaf by taking down evil doers, much to Spyro and Stealth Elf's complete disbelief.

When the residents of Skylands started praising Kaos for saving them from various mega-sized creatures, Spyro suspected that Kaos was up to something, refusing to believe that the 'evil' Portal Master would suddenly turn over a new leaf out of the blue.  He, Jet-Vac, and Drill Sergeant were soon sent to The Desert of Columns to help the Molekin, Diggs, escape from a strangely familiar troll monster, but Kaos saved the day once again, greatly irritating Spyro. Back at Eon's Citadel, the Skylanders, Master Eon, and Hugo were confronted by the Warrior Librarians of the Eternal Archives lead by Chief Curator Wiggleworth, who had learned of Spyro's legendary and heroic exploits from the books of the Ancients. The Warrior Librarians had come to warn Master Eon that their Eternal Archive, a library that holds not only the dangerous books ever written, was in terrible danger. 

Upon arriving at the Archive, the Skylanders confronted a mega-sized Chompy Pod that was impervious to all of their attacks due to its current size. The plant soon spored five giant Chompies, in which Spyro ultimately mastered his Daybringer Flame attack in taking down one of the large monsters. As the Skylanders were outmatched by the remaining giants, Kaos appeared, saving the Skylanders from the giant enemies by suspended the Chompies in midair using his magic staff.

Giant Spyro and Stealth Elf

Stealth Elf uses Kaos's staff to supersize Spyro in their fight against Kaos.

Kaos then revealed that as a child he wanted to borrow a book called World Domination for Beginners and other related books from the Eternal Archive, but was told by Wiggleworth that they weren't available for loan (in order to keep the books from falling into the wrong hands). The evil Portal Master threatened to release the giant Chompies upon the heroes if Wiggleworth didn't hand over a forbidden book to him. When Wiggleworth refused, Kaos released the Chompies to devour the group. Stealth Elf stole the magic staff from Kaos, and used its power to enlarge Spyro two times the size of the giant Chompies, allowing the dragon to defeat the giant enemies while his fellow Skylanders dealt with Kaos and destroyed his magic staff. After the battle, Spyro realized that Kaos's true plan was to test his staff on a few creatures (growing them into a giant size), trick the people of Skylands into thinking he was saving them from the mega-sized animals just so he could attack the Archive and blackmail its curator, who Kaos thought would be blinded by hero worship like others have. 

Realizing he was defeated, Kaos fled the scene, but not before revealing that his plan was only the beginning. Afterwards, some of the Skylanders, including the ones present, were brought to the Eternal Archive to help the Warrior Librarions repair the damage done. Master Eon congratulated Spyro on his victory in stopping Kaos, and was more surprised that the purple dragon shared the glory with his fellow Skylanders who assisted him. Spyro then went with Master Eon after hearing that Wiggleworth wanted to show the young dragon something within the Archive's vault. The Portal Master showed Spyro the book Kaos was after, the legendary Book of Power, a book of prophecy that shows the most dreadful predictions, such as the fall of the Skylanders, and Spyro himself...

Skylanders: Gill Grunt and the Curse of the Fish Master

Spyro with Gill Grunt, Eon, and Wiggleworth

Spyro and Gill Grunt about to look into the Book of Power with Master Eon, Hugo, and Wiggleworth.

After the other Skylanders repaired the walls of the Eternal Archives, Spyro called Gill Grunt over to the halls of the Archives so that he and the Gillmen could look into the Book of Power with Master Eon, Hugo, and Wiggleworth. The two Skylanders were horrified to see a vision in the book showing the Core of Light destroyed and darkness swarming the skies, before seeing a glimpse of the Mask of Power, an evil artifact created by a group of Spell Punks that was scattered across Skylands by the old Portal Masters long ago into eight pieces hidden in objects that were completely opposite to the fragments.

Realizing that Kaos had already found the Tech fragment of the Mask and wanted to reassemble it to use the Mask to destroy the Core of Light, Spyro and Gill Grunt became determined to find the rest before the evil Portal Master does. Master Eon was able to find the location of the Water Fragment from the Book of Power and sent Gill Grunt to Deep Water Wasteland to locate it, while Spyro stayed behind with the old Portal Master.

Spyro soon came to Deep Water Wasteland after hearing from Master Eon that the Gillman was having trouble with pirates lead by Captain Grimslobber, but was relieved that Gill Grunt managed to escape with the help of Zap and Wham-Shell. The young dragon then revealed that Kaos was looking for the Water Fragment as well, and the trio of Water Skylanders quickly continued on with their mission, leaving Spyro to worry about Zap's well-being before he returned to Master Eon via portal.

Spyro later assisted Gill Grunt, Wham-Shell, and Zap in their battle against Captain Grimslobber and his band of pirates on board the Fearsome Fang, successfully winning the struggle with the help of the merfolk. When Grimslobber fell overboard and was eaten alive by a Cloud Kraken, Kaos appeared and revealed that he had beaten the Skylanders to the Fish Master's Crown that supposedly contained the Water fragment to the Mask of Power. As the evil portal Master made his leave, Spyro, Gill Grunt, Zap, and Wham-Shell quickly made their escape off of Grimslobber's sinking ship and back in the vault of the Eternal Archives.

It had seemed the Skylanders had failed their mission, but Gill Grunt checked Grimslobber's satchel he brought back with him and held a dirty rag the captain had used to wrap the Fish Master's Crown. The rag soon revealed itself to be the Water Fragment, making the Skylanders realize that Kaos had stolen nothing more than a worthless broken crown. Knowing that Kaos would be after the next fragment to the Mask of Power, Spyro and Gill Grunt both knew that the Skylanders would be ready for him..

Skylanders: Cynder Confronts the Weather Wizard

Spyro's only appearance was when Cynder, Hex, and Zook returned to the Eternal Archives after retrieving the Undead segment to the Mask of Power. The purple dragon proceeded to inform his allies that Master Eon was kidnapped and the culprit was Squirmgrub, a Warrior Librarian traitor who was working for Kaos all this time.

Skylanders: Stump Smash Crosses the Bone Dragon

Spyro Wiggleworth

Spyro furiously lashing out at Wiggleworth for the theft of the Book of Power and Master Eon's kidnapping.

With Master Eon kidnapped, Spyro became temporary leader of the Skylanders in his place. Without a Portal Master, it was difficult for the Skylanders to search about Skylands for Eon and Kaos without the use of a Portal. Spyro furiously lashed out at Chief Curator Wiggleworth for trusting Squirmgrub, who was a traitor, and blamed him for Master Eon's capture. Hugo soon revealed that the Giggling Forest has stopped laughing for some reason, and Spyro assigned Stump Smash, Wrecking Ball and Flameslinger to find out what was going on.

After the group's close encounter with the Bone Dragon, Spyro attempted to negotiate with Glumshanks into telling the Skylanders where Kaos was. The purple dragon was able to trick the troll butler into blurting out Kaos's location by pretending to be unimpressed with the evil Portal Master, with Glumshanks becoming defensive of his master. Upon learning where Kaos was, Spyro went with Flameslinger and the other Skylanders to the Giggling Forest to find the Bone Dragon, only to overwhelmed. Spyro was turned into a stone statue by the rampaging Bone Dragon's petrifying breath despite his efforts. 

Fortunately, Stump Smash was able to bring down and convince the Bone Dragon to un-petrify everyone, including Spyro, returning them to normal. Kaos however, also recovered from the spell and began firing dark magic at the Skylanders as he attempted to capture the Bone Dragon who was believed to the Life Segment to the Mask of Power. Master Eon quickly casted a few quick spells to subdue Kaos and his minions, and revealed that the Life Segment wasn't the Bone Dragon, but a stone heart that was given to the creature years prior. Defeated, Kaos retreated, but not before vowing revenge. Spyro quickly grabbed and captured Squirmgrub, whose armor was shattered away by Master Eon and was intentionally left behind by Kaos. With the evil Portal Master gone, and the Bone Dragon returning to his eternal rest, Spyro and the Skylanders celebrated their victory, but it was far from over. 

Skylanders: Trigger Happy Targets the Evil Kaos

WARNING: This section contains spoilers below! (Skip section)
Spyro Trigg

Spyro and Trigger Happy working together after their attack on the troll fighter planes.

Spyro was sent to bring Trigger Happy, Smolderdash and Food Fight back to Eon's Citadel after their battle with the Water Viper. He soon accompanied the three Skylanders to Wool Mountain to find the Magic segment to the Mask of Power that was revealed to have taken on the form of a sheep. During the search, Kaos arrived with six troll fighter planes and began attacking all of the sheep. With the help of Trigger Happy, Spyro was able to destroy the planes in time for the other Skylanders to find the Magic segment to the Mask of Power.

However soon after retrieving the segment, all of the Mask of Power segments were stolen by a Goliath Drow who was serving Kaos. Spyro, along with the other Skylanders who previously took part in the search of the parts of the Mask of Power, were teleported to Kaos' Kastle to stop Kaos from using the Mask of Power. Despite getting through the castle's defenses, the Skylanders were unable to stop Kaos from putting on the Mask of Power. With it, Kaos was able to steal the Skylanders' powers, including Spyro's, leaving them defenseless. Before the evil Portal Master could finish the Skylanders off, they were safely teleported back to Eon's Citadel.

As Kaos began to spread havoc across Skylands, Spyro was the one who lifted the Skylanders' spirits when they began to lose hope. With his guidance, the Skylanders were able to build a makeshift tower around the Core of Light in an attempt to protect it. When Kaos came to the island, the Skylanders were once again outmatched by the Mask of Power's abilities and Master Eon was also subdued by Kaos. Before Kaos could unleash his attack on the Core of Light, Trigger Happy, joined by the other Skylanders, coaxed Kaos into using all of their abilities at the same time, causing the evil Portal Master to spiral out of control. The Mask of Power was then yanked off Kaos's face, restoring all of the Skylanders back their powers and allowing them to fully destroy the Mask of Power.

With Kaos defeated once again, Spyro knew that the evil Portal Master would return, but is certain that he and the Skylanders will be ready for him.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Spyro, Trigger Happy with Master Eon

Spyro and Trigger Happy joining Master Eon near the citadel's balconey.

Spyro and Trigger Happy were present with Master Eon when Kaos and The Darkness approached the Core of Light. When Kaos summoned his minions to destroy the Core of Light, Spyro was the first to charge into battle before the other Skylanders present, taking out a few red Cyclops Choppers with his horns before taking airborne to fight the enemies from the air. He was briefly seen during the fight flying in the background while being chased down by a Cyclops Mammoth.

Despite their best efforts however, Kaos destroyed the Core of Light using his Hydra, and Spyro, along with the other Skylanders, were banished from their world. Spyro and the other Skylanders eventually reached Earth, where they were turned into toys as a result of that world having no magic, waiting for the new Portal Master to help them save Skylands.

While being frozen, Spyro spent much of his time planning on how to lead his Skylanders home, also crossing the mind of breathing fire at Kaos in retaliation for banishing him and the Skylanders to Earth.[7] Soon, a new Portal Master was assigned by Master Eon to lead Spyro and the Skylanders back to Skylands to stop Kaos's tyranny.

After Kaos was defeated, Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Trigger Happy were the only Skylanders present at the Ruins with Flynn, Cali, Hugo, and Master Eon, listening to Kaos make idle threats in his temporary prison. The three Skylanders all shared a knowing glance to one another, as Kaos rambled on vowing that he'll keep returning until Skylands was his if he was to be banished to the Outlands again. Instead, Kaos was banished to Earth where he shrunk and turned into a toy, and shortly after his departure, Spyro, Gill Grunt, and Trigger Happy celebrated their victory together.

Skylanders: Giants

Still frozen on Earth as toys, and placed inside a toy store display, Spyro, Gill Grunt, Stealth Elf, Eruptor and Stump Smash were few of the Skylanders who witnessed Kaos breaking free of his statue-like form due to his power as a Portal Master. As Kaos plotted to destroy Earth after he takes over Skylands, Spyro called out to the tyrant that he would like the see him try and do so, bringing the evil Portal Master's attention to the Skylanders in toy form. Kaos took the chance to taunt the frozen Skylanders, before using a nearby Portal of Power to return to Skylands with the assistance of his butler, Glumshanks.

When Hugo called upon the other Skylander teams to assist Stealth Elf, Pop Fizz and Wash Buckler against an army of trolls at the Radiant Isles, Spyro's team of Skylanders was unable to go and help out as they were busy battling a Drow Raiding Squad. The purple dragon then suggested Hugo to contact Gill Grunt's team of Skylanders to see if they were available.

Skylanders Issue #4

Spyro is the Skylander who helps crown the winner of the Legendary Tournament and is notably one of the past crowned champions of the arena. According to Déjà Vu, he is the most legendary of all Skylanders. When Déjà Vu felt discouraged by Fist Bump, Trail Blazer, and Fling Kong before the Finals, Spyro approached the girl and lifted her spirits by telling her about how he became a Skylander, his adventures in Skylands, and how raw power alone doesn't make Skylanders powerful. He encouraged Déjà Vu to believe in herself just before the finals began. Déjà Vu would later win the tournament thanks to Spyro's support. With his fire breath, the purple dragon then sculpted a block of metal into a statue of Déjà Vu that now stands alongside other statues of previous champions of the tournament. 

Sometime after the tournament, Spyro rescued a sprite named Calliope from a sea creature in the mini-story, Sprite Fight. Unknown to Spyro, Calliope stole his powers from him while she was thanking the young dragon.

Skylanders Issue #7

WARNING: This section contains spoilers below! (Skip section)

Spyro, Spy Rise, Weeruptor, Jet-Vac and Wallop were hidden onboard Gurglefin's ship while it was enroute to the Wilikin Village. When the ship became ambushed by Captain Frightbeard and his group of Cyclops pirates, the Skylanders leapt out from the ship's trap door to battle their enemies. While taking on Captain Frightbeard, Spyro's fire breath was ineffective against the large seadog, confusing the young dragon. He was quickly pulled back by Spy Rise in time to avoid Frightbeard's swinging blade and Wallop took the chance to knock the pirate unconscious. Afterwards, everyone on the ship wondered what was going on with Spyro's fire breath, and they concluded that they may find answers back at the Skylanders Academy.

Spyro Frightbeard

Spyro unleashing his fire breath on Frightbeard, but...

Once there, Spyro was placed inside one of Mags' inventions to detect anything bad inside the young dragon. However after the scan, the readings revealed that Spyro was healthy despite him losing his abilities. Hex soon arrived after a Drow ambush and revealed that her powers were affected as well. After talking with Persephone, the Fairy Queen revealed that all but Spyro and Hex's most simplest of powers were stolen. Spyro and Hex both remembered their encounter with Calliope, discovering that she was the sprite who used her magic to steal their powers. With the help of Mags' wrench to detect Calliope's magical signature, Spyro and Hex travelled to the Cadaverous Crypts with Mags, Flynn and Wallop to track down Calliope.

Along the way, they came upon Cynder being cornered by Rotting Robbies. Wallop, Hex and Spyro saved the dragoness, who revealed that her powers were also stolen by Calliope. The four Skylanders followed Mags' direction to where Calliope went and they pursued the fairy through the caves. Before the Skylanders could stop Calliope from breaking her crystal that held their powers, she shattered the gem under orders of a dark shadow, who absorbed the powers of Spyro, Hex and Cynder and instantly became revived. As the Skylanders looked upon their enemy, recognizing him, they were struck down by a massive fire breath released by none other than the Undead Dragon King Malefor.

Spoilers end here.



Although there is yet to be a known relationship between him and Cynder, Spyro showed the dragoness mercy when he defeated her. Afterwards they embarked on a dangerous quest together, which resulted in Cynder smiling presumably for the first time. Spyro then convinced Master Eon to sign her up as a Skylander, and the young dragon and Cynder have been friends ever since.

Gill Grunt

Spyro is best friends with Gill Grunt. As a result of being few of the first modern Skylanders, Gill Grunt and Spyro have been working together a little longer than some of the other Skylanders, forming a friendship based on longevity and shared experiences; both having defended Skylands from darkness and tyranny on countless occasions.[8] According to Spyro, Gill Grunt is the bravest Gillman he has ever met.[9] Their friendship is also viewed in The Beginning Trailer right at the very beginning when they were discussing on what they should do together for the day before the battle takes place.

Although Gill Grunt's dreadful singing makes the young dragon's scales tremble, Spyro, like the other Skylanders, are just too fond of the blue Gillman to tell him the truth that he sounds like a bullfrog gargling stale jelly.

Trigger Happy

Other than Gill Grunt, Spyro is also best friends with Trigger Happy, having worked together with the gremlin since their days as the first few modern Skylanders. Their friendship is based on longevity and their shared experiences with each other.[8] In addition to their friendship, Spyro calls Trigger Happy by the nickname of Trigg; (in media and commercials).

Master Eon

Spyro is extremely loyal to the old Portal Master. The young dragon looks up to Master Eon, seeing him as a mentor. Unfortunately, ever since he had met Eon, Spyro had been afraid that one day the old Portal Master would fall to Kaos. His worst nightmare came to life in The Machine of Doom as an hallucination when Spyro was affected by the spores of the Fungus Rings of Despair. He was forced to watch Master Eon being tortured by Kaos, while the young dragon could do nothing to help his mentor. It was until Spyro broke through the hallucination did he free himself from his worst nightmare.

As a result of learning from Master Eon, the old Portal Master's ways influenced Spyro to save his archenemy, Kaos, from a fate the evil tyrant tried to bring upon the young dragon and three of his Skylander friends in The Machine of Doom, despite Spyro wanting to leave Kaos in the very trap he tried to spring.


Spyro, like all in Skylands, hates Kaos, the villainous Portal Master who is also the Skylanders' archenemy. The young dragon shudders at the thought of Kaos ruling Skylands and the universe, and Spyro would do whatever it takes to stop the evil Portal Master from fulfilling his evil plans. Although Kaos was a joke at a basic level, Spyro however, underestimated Kaos's seriousness as a villain, and discovered the evil Portal Master's inner deviousness in The Machine of Doom, revealing to the young dragon that Kaos can be a dangerous adversary.

There were a few instances of Spyro saving Kaos when the evil Portal Master nearly gets himself hurt. During these moments, the young dragon considered leaving Kaos to his doom or letting him get injured. But as a Skylander, doing such things would make Spyro no better than Kaos himself[10], and the purple dragon ends up saving his archenemy.

When Kaos was becoming 'hero of the hour' in Spyro Versus The Mega Monsters, Spyro refused to believe the evil Portal Master had turned over a new leaf, knowing that Kaos "is as evil as they come". This doubt was proven true when Kaos revealed his true colors in the end. Spyro had also shown signs of irritation when he was saved by Kaos more than once.


As a purple dragon, Spyro has the ability to harness the power of the other elements, though he prefers to master fire. He can also charge at his enemies with his horns and knock down obstacles, even lighting them ablaze with the element of fire. Being a dragon, Spyro has the ability to fly.
