"Hm, so reptiles are tasty. That guy was right after all..."

In true nineties’ fashion, Spyro the Dragon proves to have most of the Mascot with Attitude traits; among them, there’s the obligatory amount of spooky stuff thrown in for good measure.

Games with their own pages:
Other instances outside the first trilogy itself

  • The full-bodied sheep muppet with burns all over his body as well as a sinister looking scowl can give people, especially little children, nightmares, even though he was intended to be funny. The three commercials he appeared in: the first, the second and the third, all of which described in this documentary.
  • Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly has a rather spooky glitch in which everyone goes all slow motion-like.
  • The Tower of Terror in Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly is pretty scary not just because of its faces that spit rocks and darts but also because of the large orange realistic looking spiders crawling on it.
  • Ripto's One-Winged Angel form from that game's boss fight also looks pretty damn freaky.
  • One of the caves in Spyro: A Hero's Tail's Crocovile Swamp has a spider who can jump out of seemingly solid walls.
