General Fics

Legacy by Tucker's Mayflower
  • Recommended by WeirdKev27, TheMisterFree, N8han11
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The legend of Spyro the Dragon is a long and complicated one, told and untold as the lore passed from game company to game company. Today, the pieces are being put together to create the true telling of the hero of the Dragon Realms.
  • Comments: Damn, this fic is good, expanding on the first three original games and adding a heaping helping of character development, humor and action. Has a Dead sequel, Lore, which was supposed to adapt Enter the Dragonfly (which it is in), and eventually A Hero's Tail and the forgotten DS game Shadow Legacy.

Spyro the Dragon: The Grand Dragon Games by Fanboy111

  • Recommended by readerboy95
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The first annual fighting tournament is at Dragon City where fighters from different realms compete for the champion title, 1,000,000 gems and a seven elemental gems trophy. However, the new villain will stop at nothing to win.

Forgotten by TLOSpyrogirl

  • Recommended by Toko WH
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: It's the same every time. Coming into this void as he waits to enter his new life, slowly changing into something he never wants to be; having the chance for another start when he just wants to keep his old one; receiving all of his memories, only to have them ripped away from him again. Written for Spyro's fourteenth birthday.
  • Comments: A rather depressing take on what it must be like for characters going through Continuity Reboots. Though there's no bashing of any of the Spyro continuities, I will say this... You'll never be able to look at the alternate continuities of the franchise, or any Continuity Reboot in general, the same way ever again...

Spyro: Bane of the Dragons by thebandragoness

  • Recommended by N8han11
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: When a mysterious and powerful new villain emerges who is determined to prevent the unification of the Dragon Realms, Avalar, and the Forgotten Worlds, Spyro must travel to an unknown land where he will be forced to ask himself a troubling question - What if the dragons have been the bad guys all along?
  • Comments: Basically, Spyro, Sparx, Hunter and Bianca have to go on a new adventure in the style of the original trilogy. Much like the author's Crash Bandicoot fic, Days Of Future Crash, this fic loves self-referential humour that pokes fun at the various absurd aspects of the series (particularly the later games and other continuities).

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Throughout the realms, love is in the air, whether the couples are aware of it or not.
  • Pairings: Hunter/Bianca and Spyro/Elora.
  • Comments: A two-shot collection focusing on Hunter and Bianca's relationship during the later half of Year of the Dragon and Spyro and Elora's relationship during the ending of said game. Based off the Reignited Trilogy designs, voices and personalities.
