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.

Spyro and Cynder seem to have a HeroicSacrifice to save the world, but [[TheStinger after the credits]], the Chronicler informs Ignitus that he can't find any information on Spyro dying... and then we see him and Cynder, joyfully flying around Avalar.]]

* OminousFloatingCastle: Malefor takes over the Dragon Temple and turns it into one of these in the three years between ''Eternal Night'' and ''Dawn of the Dragon''. For added ominousness, there's a massive volcano erupting underneath it that the Destroyer emerges from. [[spoiler:It gets destroyed when the Destroyer completes it's path around the world, triggering the volcano to erupt.]]

** Spyro and Cynder's eggs are laid on the Year of the Dragon, just like the third game of the original series.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There are two instances in the final battle of DotD where, it may just be the distortion in is voice, but for all the world sounds like Malefor is saying: "Damn it!"

** The DS versions of the trilogy themselves had a completely different gameplay style from each other; the first one was basically a SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/spyroShadowLegacy'' with its top-down perspective, the second one was a 3D platformer with puzzle elements, and the third one was a side-scroller.

Added DiffLines:

** Even within the trilogy, the third game is more of a co-op game where each partner had to stick together, rather than the more relatively free-roaming style of the first two games. The change in developers probably played a part in this.

** Ironically, the mobile versions avert this; all three games are side-scrollers on mobile. Some argue this actually makes them the most consistent version of the trilogy.

Creator/{{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.

* KillEnemiesToOpen: Done quite a lot, often with an EliteMook summoning an ElementalBarrier in order to make a sort of cage match where you have to beat every enemy to proceed.
