* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad The Sorceress]]'s first act has her KickTheDog by stealing every unborn dragon. While [[TheDragon Bianca]] claims she is a WellIntentionedExtremist, the Sorceress [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist chastises her for thinking this]]. She states that she wants to [[WouldHurtAChild kill 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.

** The supercharge areas, because Spyro handles like a drunk pig and it's very, very easy to accidentally steer yourself over the side by turning too hard, all while those taunting bastards with the eggs laugh in your face.



%%* TheWoobie: Bianca.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Depending on who you ask, Agent 9 is either insanely annoying, or insanely hilarious.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Depending on who you ask, Agent 9 is either insanely annoying, or insanely hilarious. Add onto that the gamers who thought Bianca should have been the final playable instead of him.

While [[TheDragon Bianca]] claims she is a WellIntentionedExtremist, the Sorceress chastises her for thinking this.

Added DiffLines:

** The slide in Crystal Islands, which is relatively simple in terms of the later sidequests in the game but the fact that you can lose lives just by falling makes it a lot more dangerous. There's also the matter of Spyro's slippery controls on the slide being a combination with the tight turns you'll have to manuveur and there's also gems (which you might miss and have to return to the beginning to get) along the way to add to frustration.

** The Sorceress' boss battle on the original NTSC version. Due to a glitch, your final battle is being conducted to the tune of Sunrise Spring. The battle was SUPPOSED to have it's own theme as it is present in the disc, though this was fixed in the Greatest Hits version. Both PAL versions also use an incorrect tune, though the more fitting Spike boss theme.

** Scorch is a fine boss by himself but he comes after a Spike, the toughest fight in the series save Finals, so the devs decided to throw you a bone. The missiles Bently throw to you lock in on Scorch so easily that you almost have to try to miss. The battle format also allows you to hit him every time that he attacks, which is often, and Bently throws more healing items than normal as aposed to Spike's battle where S. Bird rarely, if ever, throws any healing items.

* MeaningfulReleaseDate: This game was released in Year 2000, the actual Year of the Dragon.



* ShipTease: Between Spyro and Elora during the ending (although only on Elora's side). She asks him if he's going to visit her any time soon and tells him to enjoy the fireworks show (with her) while [[spoiler:Bianca and Hunter are kissing]].



* TalkingToHimself: Neil Ross voices both Moneybags the Bear and Bentley the Yeti. Which makes the scene between them also a case of "beat the crap out of yourself with a giant club."
* ThatOneBoss:
** The Giant Stingray is this for Sparx.
** Spike. He's similar to Ripto, attacking with energy balls that are ridiculously hard to dodge consistently and, in the second and third phases, can take the powerups for himself. In addition, the first phase requires incredible precision and speed to the point where you will likely get hit, and the latter two phases, while easier, are still a challenge.

* GameBreakingBug: Flaming Fluffy, the cat-shaped fairy that gives the egg to Spyro upon completing Cloud Spires, at the same time he (or she) speaks with you will not trigger the cutscene. Speak with Fluffy again, and he'll act like the cutscene has played, but will not give out the egg and just disappear into an invisible portal. This will trick the game into thinking that the realm has not been completed. Entering and exiting the sub-level with the sun seeds will bring Fluffy back, but he cannot be spoken to. The only way to complete the realm is to exit and reenter Cloud Spires.
** The glitch was discovered in 2011, and dubbed the "Fluffy Glitch" by [=GastrodonAmy=]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=156GVI5IQN0 Here is her video on the glitch]].
