** Believe it or not, there ''are'' a few fans out there that like both the classic and legends series equally, and an even rare few who like the franchise as a whole, inluding Skylanders.

* BrokenBase:
** Even within the Classic series, there's still this trope. Mainly, it seems to be a split over Insomniac trilogy fans VS fans of the classic series as a whole. Most Insomniac trilogy fans refuse to accept anything past the original trilogy as "true" canon, and feel like everything past them isn't anywhere as good. Fans of the classic series as a whole point out how certain games, such as ''VideoGame/SpyroAHerosTail'' are also generally well regarded too, and that Insomniac's Spyro games are by no means flawless either, often pointing to the big BrokenBase over whether or not ''VideoGame/SpyroYearOfTheDragon'' was good thanks to certain design choices. The constant CreatorWorship also tends to grate on non-Insomniac fans, especially those who think Insomniac's [[Franchise/RatchetAndClank other platforming series]] has been going steadily downhill since ''Deadlock''.
** Speaking of ''VideoGame/SpyroYearOfTheDragon'', there's some hot debate over whether or not it was an EvenBetterSequel to ''Spyro 2'' or if it's a ContestedSequel that shows the original trilogy isn't flawless. Pros often point to the more fleshed out Spyro parts, the pretty good boss battles, and the story line being surprisingly deep and [[SurpriseCreepy creepy]] when you really start thinking about it. Detractors point out how less than half the game is spent actually ''playing'' as Spyro, with the other half usually consisting of being bounced around other characters [[GameplayRoulette with greatly different playstyles]], with quite a few of them[[note]]Shelia, Bentley, and a few of Sgt. Byrd's missions being the prime offenders[[/note]] controlling rather awkwardly at times.

* BrokenBase: {{Sierra}} fans versus Insomniac fans; so bad that it would lead anyone who didn't understand the fans to believe everyone was either a [[FanNickname LoS-tard or a "Classics"-tard]].

* CreatorWorship: When people reference the classic series, they usually mean the classic trilogy. The sheer number of people clamoring for another ''Creator/InsomniacGames'' Spyro game is rather insane. Most people seem to believe OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight when it comes to this regard; despite the fact that several non-Insomniac classic games are generally regarded as okay to great quality as well.

Spyro first appeared as a demo in the third ''Crash Bandicoot'' game and the fandoms remained friendly ever since.since.
** The franchise also seems oddly friendly with most of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]] fandom, thanks to the classic series sharing a similar art style and asethetics. The legend side is fairly friendly too, though whether or not it's friendly with the classic or legend series, [[BrokenBase as always]], varies from person to person.

** Elora may qualify too. She's quite popular for a character who only appeared in one game (aside frome a brief cameo in the third game).

* TakeThatScrappy: One mission in ''Spyro 3'' involves chasing down Money Bags after he reveals his plans to sell a dragon egg. This mission results in you ramming/torching him around Midnight Mountain, getting back ALL the gems he charged you throughout the game.

* BestBossEver: Ripto, the final boss from the same game, is a frantic grab for EleventhHourSuperpower. And compared to [[AntiClimaxBoss Gnasty Gnorc in the previous game]], Ripto puts up a hell of a fight, with even a final flying section against his robotic pterodactyl.
