** Dark Spyro. Despite being Spyro's Super-PoweredEvilSide, he barely, if at all, affects the plot. The only noticeable thing he does is kill Gaul and that's it.

** Evil!Cynder. More than a few found her overall more interesting and enjoyable than non-corrupted Cynder, with a few wishing she had remained a villain for the entire trilogy rather than pulling a HeelFaceTurn after it was revealed she was BrainWashedAndCrazy.

* CompleteMonster: [[KnightOfCerebus Malefor]], the Big Bad of the trilogy, is a monstrosity of a villain. The first of the Purple Dragons (although he claims there's others) he was once considered a prodigy among his kind but his own ambition and yearning for power caused him to become exiled from his kind. Furious at this, he made an army of Apes, who were already xenophobic to dragons, and taught them how to harness the power of the gems to fuel their own desires. Despite his sheer malice causing him to be trapped in the Well of Souls his presence and name still struck fear even in the bravest of souls. Hearing of the prophecy of the next purple dragon, Malefor sent the Apes to Slaughter all of the baby dragon eggs but not before he got one of his commanders to kidnap Cynder who he then corrupted her to become a psychopathic monster who was the primary antagonist of the first game. Knowing about the Night of the Eternal eclipse happening soon, he sent the Apes to the temple to kill Spyro. After sending another attack onto the Scavengers to kidnap Cynder to lure Spyro to the Well of Souls he used Spyro to possess him and obliterate his devout right hand Gaul. Finally free Malefor condemned the Apes to a fate worse than death by making them decaying souls left to run around the realms because he thought the Apes used him to gain power despite the efforts the put for him to be released. Now at large , he created a new army of Grublins from the earth which then waged constant wars onto any enemies of him. Declaring his superiority over the realms he took back the temple and made the surrounding swamp a volcanic wasteland ,hinting he killed Spyro's adopted parents. Despite his Golem not being able to destroy Warfang he summoned the Destroyer to cause the oncoming apocalypse. When he meets Spyro and Cynder he's gives a chilling lecture which send Spyro to the DespairEventHorizon and causing Cynder to become evil again by tormenting her insecurities of her past actions in which he watched as she went to savagely beat him laughing insanely the whole time. A psychopathic monster who darkened the trilogy with any scene associated with him, Malefor is the ultimate darkness is the Spyro franchise who even put the first Complete monster of the franchise to shame in sheer depravity.

In Dawn of the Dragon, Spyro briefly turns into Dark Spyro due to his grief and anger over Ignitus' death. However, Cynder easily talks him out of it and Spyro never goes dark again.again.
** Considering how little foreshadowing it got, [[spoiler: Cynder being rescued from Malefor's control again in ''Dawn of the Dragon'' by ThePowerOfLove]] can come off as this, since there was absolutely ''nothing'' that seemed to implied [[spoiler: she and Spyro had deeper feelings for one another outside of a possible friendship.]]



* StrangledByTheRedString: Even though it's a ''large'' portion of the fanbase's OneTruePairing, and many are ''very'' vicious about those who criticize it... Spyro and Cynder's relationship is this. Over the course of the series, they didn't show any interest in each other outside of a friendship, and Cynder was quite snappy with Spyro throughout [=DotD=]. As such, [[spoiler: ThePowerOfLove rescuing Cynder after she fell under Malefor's control again in that game]] may have come completely out of the left field for some, to the point it borders on {{narm}} for both hardcore fans and people who like the pairing. [[WordOfGod According to Jared Pullen, the lead artist of the trilogy]], this was because [[http://dragonoficeandfire.deviantart.com/journal/Q-A-with-Jared-Pullen-lead-concept-artist-of-TLoS-556546930 Spyro and Cynder]] ''weren't'' intended to get together originally. However, the [[OneTruePairing very vocal]] fans on that subject eventually made them decide to ThrowItIn late in development, which explains why it feels so sudden in-game. Unfortunately, this has led to some seeing the relationship in a rather unflattering light... See AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above.

* BaseBreaker: Cynder, ironically ''because'' of how popular she was with the fandom initially. Even disregarding Classic series fans or [[ShipToShipCombat Shipping Wars]] regarding her and [[VideoGame/SpyroAHerosTail Ember]], her fans tend to grate on people who didn't like her, were originally neutral on her, or even ''liked her originally'' due to playing up her past to {{Wangst}}y levels, and for the fact that the number of FanWorks focusing on [[PlotTumor Cynder and/or her past]] ''vastly'' out number the amount of FanWorks that focus on any other Spyro series character, including ''Spyro himself'', to the point he often ends up being DemotedToExtra frequently. There's also a third camp that insists she has potential as a character as well, if people would just stop focusing on her DarkAndTroubledPast and more on her growth as a character, pointing out how even ''Dawn of the Dragon'' had her as a bit short tempered and snappy with those around her.
