- Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly has a rather spooky glitch in which everyone goes all slow motion-like.

- One of the caves in Spyro: A Hero's Tail's Crocovile Swamp has a spider who can jump out of seemingly solid walls.
- In some of the ice levels in Spyro: A Hero's Tail some enemies include scary looking skeleton warriors. They even let out a scream whenever you kill them.
