[edit] Backstory

[edit] Reboot From Legend of Spyro Series

The end of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon was loosely used for how Spyro was introduced to Eon. According to his backstory, Spyro, Cynder, and Sparx the Dragonfly were leaving the Dragon Realms in search of a new place to live in peace. It is said they landed on Skylands where Eon had heard of the magical purple dragon and his friends, and immediately made them Skylanders, stating Spyro was to be their leader.

[edit] Promotional Backstory

Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. It's been said that the Scrolls of the Ancients mention Spyro prominently -- the old Portal Masters having chronicled his many exciting adventures and heroic deeds. Finally, it was Master Eon himself who reached out and invited him to join the Skylanders. Now calling Skylands his home, Spyro remains one of its most valued protectors, with evil facing a new enemy -- and the Skylanders gaining a valued ally.

[edit] Dark Spyro

Once, when the Darkness tried to corrupt the Core of Light, Spyro was nearly corrupted with it. It was only by Eon's help that the young dragon did not suffer this terrible fate. Later on, Eon taught Spyro how to control this dark magic, and once he was able to, he could harness and use the dark magic to the Skylanders' advantage. He would become a black and silver dragon known as Dark Spyro.

[edit] Relationships

[edit] Cynder

At the end of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, Cynder tells Spyro she loves him right before credits play and Ignitus talks about where they went next. Throughout the original Legend of Spyro series, Cynder and Spyro were shown to grow closer and closer to each other. However, it is currently unknown whether the two Skylanders are in a relationship or not.

Cynder, however, has two in-game quotes that may be related to Spyro:

  • "All Charged Up!"

This could be an adaptation of Spyro's catchphrase, "All Fired Up!", or it could be a reference to her powers over electricity. Other SKylanders have the same/similar battle cries to one another, so this one is likely only a reference to her abilities, but to fans, it is a possible reference to a maybe relationship with Spyro.

  • "Born to Scorch!"

In The Legend of Spyro: The Beginning, Cynder could shoot fire. This could be a reference to that, or it could be a reference to Spyro. This one seems to be more of a reference to Spyro because it directly relates to fire. However, when lightning strikes, it "scorches" or "burns" the thing it strikes. It may also be a reference to her Lightning Breath abilities.

[edit] Sparx The Dragonfly

As shown in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, Sparx is Spyro's non-biological brother, and the two are inseparable throughout the entire journey, although Sparx becomes less of a main character and more of a supporting character. In the Skylanders series, Sparx the Dragonfly is a Magic Item that, when placed on the Portal of Power, will help the player for 60 seconds before timing out.

  • Spyro's battle cry, "Mess with the dragon, get the horns!" Is based off the saying "Mess with the bull, get the horns!"
  • Spyro's feet disappear below the ground on rising elevations. He shares this with all other dragon Skylanders.
  • Spyro the Dragon was the main character in the Spyro gaming series that started off on the PlayStation 1. He has appeared in seventeen total games excluding the Skylanders series.
  • At the end of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, Cynder whispers to Spyro "I love you," and then credits will play. Once in Skylands, it is unknown whether she and Spyro have a serious relationship or not.
  • Spyro considers Sparx the Dragonfly to be his brother, even though they are not biologically related. This is shown in Spyro's previous game, The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning.
