** 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''.

** Let's not get started on the GameBoyAdvance games. While some like them ([[ApprovalOfGod including Ted Price]]) and consider them faithful to Insomniac's work on the series, others either dislike the isometric perspective or hate them for no real reason due to not being made by Insomniac.

** Spyro first appeared as a demo in the third ''Crash Bandicoot'' game and the fandoms remained friendly ever since.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Despite having their PS2/PS3 era successors (''Ratchet and Clank'', Jak and Daxter'', and ''Sly Cooper'') present, ''VideoGame/PlayStationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' had both Spyro and Crash Bandicoot notably absent. Apparently, [[MoneyDearBoy Activision's asking fee for Crash to appear was too high]], and therefore Spyro was also disqualified.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The first game was Sony and Universal's answer to ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''. Sony and Universal's first property, ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', wasn't exploration based like those games. Sony needed something to compete with Nintendo's 3D platformers, and ''Spyro'' was that game. While the sequels improved upon the first game in every way, it did set the stage for titles like ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'', ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter, and ''Franchise/SlyCooper''.

* TakeThatScrappy: One mission in ''Spyro 3'' involves chasing down Moneybags 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.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Younger fans of ''Skylanders'' might be surprised to learn Spyro was the star of his own game and following series for quite some time prior to ''Skylanders''

** {{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]].

* BaseBreakingCharacter: [[UpToEleven We'd be tempted to say 'everyone' and call it a day]] if it weren't for it being against Trope policies. As BrokenBase below points out, people who are fans of the Classic series aren't a fan of Legends characters while people who are fans of the Legend series aren't fans of the Classic series characters. To put it frank; the ''only'' characters you're likely to not find people complaining about, characterization wise or otherwise, in this fandom are Flame and Bianca.
