Tear Jerker: The Legend of Spyro

  • The ending of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. After defeating Malefor, the world starts to crumble beneath Spyro and Cynder. Before falling away, Cynder and Spyro help recombine the world, with them as the cost. Right before the credits roll, you get one simple message: "Thank You for helping us complete this series, without you it wouldn't have happened". For those who grew up with the series, it's definitely depressing to see Spyro die. Thankfully, it was a Disney Death, and Spyro and Cynder are still alive. Still, it's one big punch in the gut to see the series at its end. No, Skylanders. You don't count.
  • Ignitus' story about Cynder's past, if the fact an entire generation of unborn babies was just slaughtered doesn't do it, what was done to Cynder certainly would.
    • Also, Cynder's explaination at the beginning of The Eternal Night, she's leaving because her past is hurting her so much she can't stand staying somewhere she clearly enjoys being, it's clearly hard for her to leave but she feels she has to. Worse, it's not her fault at all. She's an innocent victim and blames herself for 12 years of murder and destruction she was forced to cause, and is just a poor little kid!
  • Ignitus's death.
  • When this troper played ANB, she found herself becoming rather fond of the swamp. Easy game level, pretty lighting, seemed like a rather beautiful place, right? Now consider this: The swamp surrounded the Temple. The Temple that Malefor raised into the sky and turned the land around it into the burned lands. The swamp. And ever wonder what happened to Spyro and Sparx's parents? Hell, this troper was near in tears when she saw the view from the floating isles level, sap that she is. This only made this troper more determined to get to Malefor and make the bastard pay.
    • Even assuming that their parents survived it, think about this: Spyro and Sparx were last seen in the Well of Souls, which imploded at the same time Malefor was set free. Their parents likely spent the five years between games not knowing there their kids were or if they were still alive.
