Funny / Spyro the Dragon

Spyro The Dragon

  • "Yeah, well, you could've found an easier place to get stuck!" (Even Spyro hates Tree Tops!)
  • "Be on the look out for attack frogs! They're cold blooded killers!"
  • "A wise dragon once told me 'Aim high in life, but watch out for flying boxes.'"
  • You gotta believe!
  • Most dragons will give you tips, advice, comedy, or a mixture of any of them. However, 12 of them (or 15% of them, and yes, someone counted) just say "Thank you for releasing me!" and just leave.

Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

  • I'm a faun you dork!
  • Elora ordering Hunter to sit on Moneybags to make him give up the money he scammed out of Spyro throughout the game. Also a Crowning Moment of Awesome for Hunter.
  • Ripto's throne falling out of the castle, with him in it, after defeating Gulp.
  • One of the satyrs in Fracture Hills: "Music can soothe the savage beast... and bagpipe music can break solid rock."
  • Boo.
  • "How I miss my Romeo! If he wasn't so short, we'd get married!"
  • In Crystal Glacier, Spyro must help the Icebuilders rescue their leader, Chief Shaman Tuk, from the ice wizards' prison. The reason? "He has our tickets to tonight's hockey game at Colossus Valley!"
    • Which turns into a Brick Joke upon rescuing him:
    Chief Shaman Tuck: Here, take this crystal. I traded some hockey tickets for it.
  • There's a strange audio glitch that can occur in cut-scenes if you're emulating the game, where random sounds and/or parts of the actual cutscene are repeated over and over and over, turning normally dramatic moments and crucial plot points into pure audio insanity, with the cutscenes making beeps and repeating phrases and lines over and over again. You can see an example of it Here.
  • The Intro and Extro cutscenes for each level can provide a good laugh most of the time, Highlights include:
    • The intro to Colossus has two monks going into a temple to feed a yeti a goat, followed by the screen zooming in on the leftward monk as eating sounds can be heard, and when the camera zooms out it's revealed the Yeti ate the other Monk instead, leaving the goat alone to look at the camera in a confused expression.
    • The Electrolls messing with a Gear Grinder in Hurricos' Extro.
    • The Extro to Aquaria Towers has a Seahorse being scared off (and farting bubbles out of fear) by robotic shark jaws,note  which is revealed to be another Seahorse playing a prank. Cue a second pair of Robo-Shark Jaws, this time chomping a few times and being from the real thing, which chases the prankster Seahorse off screen.
    • The Intro of Skelos Badlands has a flame-headed enemy singe a caveman's behind followed by the Caveman dangling over a pit for a few seconds before it's then revealed the bat enemy was holding him, he precedes to fall shortly shortly afterwards.
    • The intro and extro of Crystal Glacier:
      • The intro has 2 Ice Builders trying to save their leader by entering through the top of his prison. However, upon one launching the other to the top an Ice Mage, waiting up there, freezes the flying Caveman in a large ice cube, cue the frozen Ice Builder crushing the other flat.
      • The Extro has three Ice Builders climbing a castle, posting a flag on the top. one Ice Builder then falls off, safely hitting the snow, amused, another knocks one down as well, diving off himself shortly afterwards. Their leader just nods disappointingly.
    • The Slapstick in Breeze Harbour and Zephyr, who knew war was so funny.
    • Metropolis' intro and extro are possibly the funniest:
      • The intro has a robotic man constantly looking back and forth for cars, only to discover a pig with a rocket on its back. How does he react to this? He (and the pig) begin to look back and forth as if nothing is strange about it. The kicker? Said rocket pig is one of the enemies that are wreaking havoc among Metropolis. That's right, not only is he completely unphased by a pig wearing a fireworks rocket on its back, but one that is potentially causing trouble in the city.
      • The extro turns this into a Brick Joke, the Robot finally does cross the road/ Only to get hit by car shortly afterwards.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon

  • In the introductory cutscene, Bianca and the rhynocs sneak in while the everyone's asleep and capture the eggs. She accidentally steps on Hunter's tail, causing him to shout and wake everyone up. All the dragons are now eyeing her down, and just when it looks like they might finally do something after all this time... they all just keep staring, and one of them frantically stamps his feet and gestures Hunter to stop her.
  • The Hunter's Tussle cutscene, just... here.
  • "No Hard Feelings". Sheila kicks Moneybags.
    • Heck, pretty much any of the animals' revenges against Moneybags.
    • Bentley's in particular gives us this exchange:
    Bentley: (After bashing Moneybags several times) One more, perhaps?
    Spyro: At least!
  • In Sunny Villa, one of the resident lions asks you to find his girlfriend, Rapunzel. However, after locating her at the top of a tower, it's revealed that she has a restraining order against him.
    Rapunzel: If you see Marco, please tell him I've moved out.
  • The epilogue you get for getting all the skill points. Special mention to the game of "Whack a Bentley", which shows a mole going after Bentley with his own club, and the seals inventing "squid-boarding".
  • After you pay off Moneybags to rescue Agent 9, he remarks "You ever seen a bear dance?" He then chases Moneybags around, firing lasers at his feet. It's funnier than it sounds.
    Agent 9: Good dancer, isn't he? Not much stamina, though. Too bad, I had a lot more ammo left! *Evil Laugh*
  • Moneybags referred to Bentley, of all people, as a "dimwitted furball" while he was stuck inside his cage. When he got out, well...
  • The Second Warning cutscene has this as well. Here.
  • Few villains make their Moral Event Horizon funny, but the Sorceress' giddy fit over her "monster to end all monsters", plus Bianca's reaction, is just priceless:
    Sorceress: Yes! It will smash them and crush them and grind them and tear them!!! Oh-ho-ho, yes!!! Smear them and smooch them and crack them and crease them!!!
    Bianca: But, er....won't that kill them?
    • As well as this hilarious quote:
    Sorceress: What did you think I was going to do with them? Open a zoo?
  • The cutscene leading up to the first boss is rather good. Bianca makes ready to transform a Mook into the first boss, but she botches the spell and instead turns him into a cute little bunny rabbit. The second time she tries, it works, producing a big, scaray-looking toad monster... with a pair of little bunny ears still sprouting from atop its head. After it growls and thrashes around scarily for a few seconds, it abruptly freezes (along with the music) until Bianca magically removes the bunny-ears, at which point it resumes.
  • Despite being home of the the Missing Gem Glitch, it's hilarious how everyone speaks in Haiku, even Moneybags and Shelia.
    • Even when Moneybags finally stops trying to speak in Haiku, he still somehow speaks in it twice in a row. Spooky Swamp apparently has Haiku magic.
    • Shelia's Haiku:
      The swamp smells so sweet
      The springtime trees are fragrant
