* FollowTheLeader: The original trilogy was obviously made to ride the trend of collect-a-thon platformers started by the success of VideoGame/SuperMario64.

A platforming video game franchise (with a focus on combat in later games) starring the eponymous purple dragon, Spyro. It was started in 1998 when Creator/{{Universal}} Interactive Studios commissioned Creator/InsomniacGames to make a child-oriented game on the original Playstation. And it was decided that it'd star a dragon because, well, [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons you know]].

The Spyro franchise (both the classics and ''Legend of Spyro'') has a long history of crossing over with the ''Frachise/CrashBandicoot'' games. Their initial developers, Insomniac and Creator/NaughtyDog have been close allies for years. They worked on Spyro and Crash literally right next to each other, in the same room. ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'' and ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' have a similar relationship for the same reason.

* PortalNetwork: The setting is made up of various distinct locations whose populations make heavy use of portals to get between them. The first game had Spyro exit levels through whirlwinds though. Spyro also ''glides'' through portals, suggesting they are useless to those without good jumping ability and don't immediately deposit people to the intended goal.
