* BadBoss: Subverted with Deadlock, whose actually a really good boss. Played straight with Empress Tyrania, who nonchalantly kills her minions on a whim.

After their arrival, they discover that not only is Cynder a natural black dragon, a second one has been laid. Its parents unable to care for it, it was put up for adoption, saved for Spyro and Cynder. Not planning to have their own children this year, the duo decide to adopt it as their own child, Cynder bonding with it quickly. However, another new surprise also awaits them, a pink dragoness named Ember who survived their Year of the Dragon genocide by being taken into the wilderness and raised by her mother. Due to being the only Fire dragon left from her year, Ember was appointed and is being trained as the new Fire Guardian. While she has a crush on Spyro, her and Cynder still manage to become friends.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the games, the Naga was a boss only in the Gameboy Advanced version of ''The Legend Of Spyro: The Eternal Night'', and not even canon at that. Here they're an ancient warrior race who nearly conquered the entire Dragon Realms eons ago.

* AGodIAm: Empress Tyrania carried out three genocides so she'd have a race of beings willing to worship herself as a God. Evidently, in the eons she's been worshipped, she came to see herself as one as well.

** [[spoiler:General Grendel turned out to be the ManBehindTheMan to Tyrania and Kaze, having manipulated them to work with his plans for revenge on the Dragons and getting Pyrus out of the picture. To some extant, he's manipulating Deadlock, but it's mainly permitting her plan so she stays out of his way. He's now proceeded along his own plot for revenge against the Dragons. In the end, after Deadlock is defeated and makes a HeelFaceTurn, Grendel becomes the TrueFinalBoss by performing a ritual giving him the power of the Naga Spirit Of War.]]

[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Both of those reduce her to a sobbing wreck]] as she finally realizes she'd ruined her great relationship with her family over a simple misunderstanding her brother had spent years trying to undo.

** [[spoiler:Turns out Cyros is an ''even bigger'' BrokenBird than Deadlock, but for different reasons. Her entire motivation centers around the belief the world is just a cruel and selfish place were you're the only one who can watch out for herself. She feels like Pyrus betrayed her by taking the throne after he promised her she could be the princess, leading to her believing she could trust no one and must become so strong no one can ever hurt her again.]]

* CainAndAbel: Pyrus and Cyros. Cyros is a sadistic egomaniac who loves torturing her smaller, more kindhearted brother. Pyrus is kind and friendly on the otherhand, and isn't aware of just how villainous his sister is.

* NoSocialSkills: Ember to some degree. She's got ''some'' social skills, but is still naive about a lot of things due to the only interaction she's had with other dragons was her mother. Like being able to tell Spyro and Cynder are mates.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Deadlock. The only reason she's doing any of this is because she's had a horrible life. Her own parents wanted nothing to do with her because she was born with three heads, and she suffered a great deal of bullying for being a "freak" for most of her life. Then she finally got a mate named Andreas who loved her for who she was and a job at the temple she loved and was respected for as a nursery dragoness. She had two clutches of eggs with him as well, which she loved with all her heart. Then it was all stolen from her in one night, Andreas and her second clutch of eggs destroyed the night of the raid along with the others (which destoys her job as well). The pain of this drove her insane and now she wants to take revenge on those she blames for it. Yeah, she's doing horrible things, but her past is so horrific it's hard not to feel bad for her.
