Characters Edit

Heroes Edit

  • Spyro the Dragon is the protagonist in the game. He is an adventurous young purple male dragon who tries to save the world no matter what. He is playable in all levels.
  • Sparx the Dragonfly is Spyro's dragonfly companion who protects Spyro (or another playable character in a Failure storyline). from most hits but loses health every time he does so. Eating butterflies makes him regain his health. He isn't playable in any level but he appears in all levels except Malefor's Lair.
  • Ember is a pink female dragon who has a huge crush on Spyro. She loves special days of the year (such as her birthday and Valentine's Day) and hates villains who ruin them. She and Spyro fall in love in some "Saved World" endings. She is playable in the final battle alongside Spyro if the player manages to reach it as well as some Failure storylines.
  • Flame is a red male dragon who is around the same age as Spyro and Ember. He tries to save the world too, but not as actively as Spyro and Ember. He is playable in some Failure storylines.
  • Hunter the Cheetah is a male cheetah who is skilled in archery. He helps Spyro in some levels and is playable in the Hunter ending storyline.
