* Bently boxing the Yeti in "Frozen Altars". The first time isn't so bad and the yeti goes down pretty easy, but the second, 3-round fight can be the bane of a player's existence. The yeti is ''really'' good about blocking your own hits - since Bentley's slow as a tank - and hitting back in the split seconds before you can block. The yeti's health also goes down slower compared to Bentley's, and regains health after every round. You ''must'' knock him out to win, and outcomes for dubiously-connected hits tend to take the yeti's favor over yours.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Greta's role in Fireworks Factory is downright hilarious simply because of how over-the-top it's played, particularly the "fwee my mind" scene and the level's story ending with her taking out 5 mooks in a very Matrix-style fashion.

* BestLevelEver: It may be insanely hard, but Fireworks Factory is very well remembered by those who've played the game - Greta's actions while following you through the level, the Twin Dragons miniboss (with infinite superfly and superflame!), and one of the game's best soundtrack pieces are the major highlights.

* The bunnies in Midday Gardens--there's a lot of them, they're often bundled close together, you can take them out in any number of ways, and they always react spectacularly.

** The Rhynoc Wizard of Spooky Swamp is pathetically easy, with a fighting strategy consisting solely of [[FlunkyBoss summoning the small gators]] you've been beating throughout the entire level and throwing a CartoonBomb that can easily be headbutted back. In comparison, the Robot Shark of Seashell Shore (the previous MiniBoss) is far tougher.

** [[BrutalBonusLevel The Sasquatch Six]] in the Super Bonus World is this in droves. The entirety of the race track [[BottomlessPit is over a bottomless pit]], meaning you canít risk falling off once. If so, youíre further behind in the race. Even worse is that thereís no barriers to keep you from falling. You need to be on point and accurate with your jumps and turning as much as possible. Then thereís the Sasquatches themselves. [[FakeDifficulty Right from the beginning they have the ability to boost faster, but you donít, making the race damn near impossible to beat.]] Even after realizing you can kill the blue crabs to gain said boost before the race starts, as well as DynamicDifficulty kicking in and putting in a cheat code to lower said difficulty, thereís still the matter of boosting to go faster, making the controls feel stiff. More often then not itíll lead to the player falling off the track. By the end, itís all near luck base on whether or not you get first place.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad The Sorceress]]'s first act has her KickTheDog by stealing every unborn dragon. While [[TheDragon Bianca]] claims she means well, the Sorceress [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist chastises her for thinking this]]. She states that she wants to [[WouldHurtAChild kill all 151 infant dragons]] for their wings, which she will use for a spell to make her [[ImmortalityImmorality live forever]]. When the horrified Bianca asks why she has to kill them, she replies that she doesn't; she just doesn't want them squirming around when she cuts off their wings. This one line prompts Bianca to pull an immediate HeelFaceTurn.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad The Sorceress]]'s first act has Sorceress]] is the cruel ruler of the Forgotten Worlds. Manipulating her KickTheDog by stealing every unborn dragon. While [[TheDragon apprentice [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Bianca]] claims she means well, into abducting 150 dragon eggs under the guise of restoring magic to her kingdom, the Sorceress quickly reveals the true depths of her [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist chastises selfishness and hypocrisy]]. Completely uncaring of the lives of her for thinking this]]. She states that she wants men, the Sorceress transforms her own minions into freakish monsters to fight Spyro, and ultimately plans to create a monster to wipe out every dragon, [[WouldHurtAChild kill even the hatchlings]], all 151 infant dragons]] for so she can collect their wings, which she will use wings for a spell to make that will give her [[ImmortalityImmorality live forever]]. When the horrified Bianca asks why she has to kill them, she replies eternal youth. She nonchalantly states that she doesn't; doesn't even have to kill them; she just doesn't want them squirming wriggling around when while she cuts off removes their wings. This one line prompts Bianca to pull an immediate HeelFaceTurn.A genocidal tyrant who [[ItsAllAboutMe only cares about herself]], the Sorceress stands out as the darkest and purest villain in the original Spyro trilogy.

* JerkassWoobie: [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Bianca]] in ''Year Of The Dragon''. Steals the entire colony of dragon eggs for the Sorceress, and smack talks Spyro for most of the early stages of the game. In reality though, Bianca is only doing so to preserve magic in her world, having no genuinely harmful intent, and is usually too {{Adorkable}} and downtrodden to come off as particularly fearsome. She pulls a HeelFaceTurn when repulsed by the Sorceress' real intent for the eggs.
