* InNameOnly: Despite the fact that it stars a purple dragon named Spyro, this series couldn't be further than [[Franchise/SpyroTheDragon the classic series]] that inspired it. Even Spyro himself doesn't really act like his Classic self; while Classic Spyro is snarky, mischievous if well-meaning deep down, this Spyro starts out as a well mannered, respectful and near {{Paragon}} level hero.

This series has also caused a bit of a [[BrokenBase gap]] in the ''Spyro'' fanbase. Although the creator mentions he only "scratched the surface" with the trilogy, the Spyro franchise ultimately got rebooted again and spun-off into the far more successful ''Franchise/{{Skylanders}}'' franchise. The Legend series wasn't entirely forgotten, though, as several elements from it carried over into the Skylanders lore. Spyro's backstory is based on his Legend counterpart, and Cynder returns as a playable character. BigBad Malefor is also mentioned in the backstories of several Skylanders and appears in person in the tie-in comics. Furthermore, the Skylanders TV show, ''WesternAnimation/SkylandersAcademy'', has been said to have a StoryArc focusing on Cynder.

Purple dragons are rare and have immense power, so it's no wonder that, when a purple dragon egg is laid, every evil man and his EvilMatriarch wants to get their hands on it. A army belonging to an unseen villain called the Dark Master storm the dragon hatchery, breaking all the eggs - but wise Ignitus manages to save the little purple egg and set it downriver, where a family of dragonflies adopts it. Many years later, little Spyro begins to realize that he's not quite what he thought he was when he figures out he can breathe fire, and he and Sparx set out on a quest to stop the evil Cynder! Late in the game it's revealed [[LateArrivalSpoiler Cynder was the only other surviving the dragon eggs]], who was taken by the Dark Master's army as part of his plan to release him.
