* OutsideContextVillain: Dark Cynder served as this for the Dragons during the war. They were winning in their long battle with the Apes, then she showed up and single-handedly turned the tide of the war. Not only was she just that powerful, it's easy to infer they didn't anticipate another Dragon would show up to lead the Apes.

* TheObiWan: Ignitus, very much so. Although his personality is more like that of [[VideoGame/StarFox Peppy Hare]].

{{Activision}}/{{Sierra}}'s ContinuityReboot trilogy of video games based on the ''VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon'' franchise. In comparison to the lighthearted tone of classic ''Spyro'', the ''Legend'' Trilogy had a much darker atmosphere, including the major changes to characters, story, and gameplay.

Added DiffLines:

* SquashedFlat: Knock an enemy up high enough in the first two games and this will be what happens when they finally hit the ground. This isn't always fatal to them though.

Added DiffLines:

* VideogameFlight: In the first game Spyro learns to fly but isn't very good at it and cannot do so at will. His flight sections sort of function like RailShooters. He still hasn't gotten over it in the second game but the third game lets the player fly whenever they want, strong winds, down drafts and other such obstacles being the only things that keep them from going wherever they want.

* TheHerosJourney

to:

* TheHerosJourneyTheHerosJourney: Rather than a call to adventure Spyro decides to set out on his own volition. Otherwise most of the associated tropes apply.

* GenreShift: While the original trilogy and the games between that and this trilogy were more of GottaCollectThemAll {{Platform Game}}s, this trilogy is more of and ActionAdventure BeatEmUp.

to:

* GenreShift: While the original trilogy and the games between that and this trilogy were more of GottaCollectThemAll {{Platform Game}}s, this trilogy is more of and ActionAdventure BeatEmUp. Only "Eternal Night" has a serious amount of serious platforming and the combination of Sparx guiding the player and dragon time mean it's still not too hard.



* KnightOfCerebus: Dark Cynder in the first game, as the Apes were at least comical to some degree, but she's completely serious. In the second game, it's Gaul, who comes after the somewhat comical SkyPirates StoryArc and like Dark Cynder has no real comedy to him, and the Apes are a lot less comedic as well. While ''Dawn of the Dragon'' was consistently dark throughout, it was largely due to [[UltimateEvil Malefor]] being unleashed. As the overall BigBad, Malefor could be considered this for the ''SpyroTheDragon'' series, as he's by far more serious and deadly than previous villains.
* LedgeBats: Annoying prevalent in the GBA version of ''the Eternal Night'', with each area having it's own equvialent. Be it flying bugs, spirit whisps, birds, actual bats... Thankfully, they go down in one hit. Mostly because of ''how'' annoying to hit they are.

** In ''ANB'', Ignitus reveals that Cynder is not so different from Spyro either - her egg was among those the Dark Master sought to destroy when searching for Spyro's egg.
*** To specify, they both hatched from the same Year of the Dragon egg clutch.

* ShooOutTheClowns: Just before the final battle with Malefor, Spyro tells Sparx he can't come with him and [[GreaterNeedThanMine instead asks him to lead everyone to safety underground.]]
** Justified, as he'd not have been able to survive the intense heat in the Belt of Fire.

* ComingOfAgeStory
* ContinuityReboot

to:

* ComingOfAgeStory
ComingOfAgeStory: Spyro's adopted parents knew his draconic nature would become apparent as he got older. This prompts him to leave the house to find out more about himself and stakeout a role in the world.
* ContinuityRebootContinuityReboot: We now have a solid planet instead of a PortalNetwork of realms and worlds of unclear geography. The dragons are now far fewer in number and purple is legendary, rather than rare but otherwise dismissed. Dragon flies and young dragons being in a relationship is now considered odd. We could go on.
