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 ''VideoGame/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, ''Skylanders Academy'', has been said to have a StoryArc focusing on Cynder.

* ShipperOnDeck: Arguably, Ignitus in Dawn of the Dragon. When he notices that Spyro and Cynder are tethered together he has a few words of encouragement, punctuated by a sly grin towards Sparx.
-->'''Ignitus''': "Do not view this chain as a hindrance, but allow it to be a reminder of the bond you two share. Your destinies are now intertwined. And that thought is a hopeful one."

* 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.

* 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.
