* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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''

* 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.

* ReplacementScrappy: For some, Ripto in the older series replacing Gnasty Gnorc as the main Spyro villain. Since some like him for being a worthier, more developed adversary for Spyro, this is not unanimous however.
