** Spike himself serves as a minor case, since his fearsomeness is recognised by Bianca and the point she truly [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosts]] and acts openly fearful for Spyro's well being. This is omitted in the US version which for some reason disables Spike's opening cutscene.

This is omitted in the US version which for some reason disables Spike's opening cutscene. This was fixed in the Greatest Hits version of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* MiniDungeon: Each level has portals to side-levels where Spyro has to solve different kinds of puzzles to get more gems and eggs. Sometimes, one of Spyro's rescued friends are required for them.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerUp: 3 of them - the super flame (where Spyro breathes strong, long-ranged, exploding FireBalls instead of fire streams) and free flight powerups return from the previous game, along with the InvincibilityPowerUp that's usually used to solve puzzles.
* PowerUpMount: Some mini-stages require Spyro to ride on a mount and attack/race opponents to get the eggs, such as the Manta ray with cannons in Desert Ruins or the HoverTank in Haunted Tomb. [[spoiler:The TrueFinalBoss battle with the Sorceress has both her and Spyro riding {{Flying Saucer}}s for an aerial dogfight over an AcidPool.]]

* KungFuProofMook: The giant armored rhynocs of the Fireworks Factory, who have to be flamed from behind. Some of them turn around too quickly for Spyro to hit, but with all the ''fireworks'' around there are other ways to deal with them...

to:

* KungFuProofMook: KungFuProofMook:
** The 2 kinds of Rhynocs go like this: the smaller ones are usually {{heavily armored|Mook}} or {{shield bearing|Mook}} which can withstand flame breath; Spyro needs to use HornAttack on them. The GiantMooks can resist Spyro's horn charge, but tend not to be protected, so use his BreathWeapon on them.

* CrystalLandscape: The Crystal Islands were once a regular, non-crystal based world. Unfortunately, the Magicians from there ended up turning the inhabitants and the landscape into crystal with some of the Sorceress's magic that they stole.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: While the baby dragons are returned to the Dragon Realms, it is not mentioned whether the problem of the Forgotten Worlds' fading magic has been solved. Since the Sorceress banished the dragons in the first place (and Hunter offered to talk to them about the problem), it can be implied the dragons could revive it to it's former glory upon her defeat, but never stated outright. Even later games never clarify as Bianca moves to the Dragon Realms with Hunter afterwards.

* ImprobableWeaponUser: The red rhynocs of Sgt. Byrd's base use flower pots as weapons (could be a case of GenreSavvy, as the residents are hummingbirds). And the [[Bedsheet Ghost}}s of Lost Fleet use flashlights.

* AsteroidsMonster: The larger starfish of Starfish Reef split into smaller ones when shot enough times. "That giant sting ray" also splits into smaller rays after awhile.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Both region boxes have a dynamic cover, but compared to the BadAss scowls on the NTSC cover above, most of Spyro's friends have happy or vacant expressions on [[http://199.101.98.242/media/images/52801-Spyro_-_Year_of_the_Dragon_(E)-2.jpg the PAL version]].
