- Christmas Rushed: The game was meant for a 2000 release, not a 1999 one. Fortunately, unlike many examples, it did not affect the quality.
- Jossed: For years, fans have discussed about the lack of a Spring-themed world in the game, which many claiming that a fourth world was planned at one point, but it ended up being scrapped due to time constraints. However, the staff at Insomniac Games confirmed during a livestream that a Spring-themed world was never considered at any point during development.
- Serendipity Writes the Plot: Ripto's name comes from the JP cover art of the first game, where the heavily-stylized katakana for "Spyro" looks kinda like "Ripto".
