Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon

by Just A Friend, Sinatrapod

Part 1: Character Biographies & Fan Art

Spyro. He's got things to do.

Sparx. Spyro's best bud. He's got HIDDEN POTENTIAL in this game.

Hunter. Our favorite mentally challenged character returns.

Moneybags. Satan incarnate.

Zoe. A fairy who seems to serve dragons, and Spyro in particular.

Bianca. Mysterious servant of the Sorceress. You won't like her when she's angry.

The Sorceress. Wants to use dragon eggs for some nefarious purpose.

Sheila Sharla. A kangaroo and a playable character previously (currently?) imprisoned by the Sorceress. She likes jumping and kicking things really hard.

Sgt. Byrd. I mean, look at him.

Bentley. A surprisingly bright yeti that just wants to straight up smash things.

Agent 9. A maniacal space cyborg monkey. Also likes butt.

FinalGamer makes a fitting tribute to the Spyro 2 videos.

cofaigh and Rather Watch Them show us what would(will??) happen when From studios buys the Spyro franchise.

I also thought that the 'soul' mechanic in Spyro 2 was a little suspect.

Good job the new Spyro game is forgoing both souls and gems in favour of scouring the dragon world for humanity.

A battle of greed? Surely you don't mean...

cofaigh reveals Moneybags' true form.

The Moneybags model (sprite?) always weirded me out. Strikes me more as familiar now though.

Xenoveritas reminds us what we're fighting for.

cofaigh reflects on Hunter's life decisions.

And shows us what the game used to be like before they padded it with 'platforming'.

Also, I really hope Moneybags gets his comeuppance at the end of this game.

...and that 80's rad dragon was itching for a new name.

cofaigh posted:

That Hunter death-reel was very cathartic.

Hi, I made some GIFs out of that last cutscene cause I felt like it. Enjoy.

So Bentley moonlights as a biplane yeah?

Finally, Hunter is where he belongs.

Can't we dream?

Those bears really were in Hell, toiling so close to a river of honey.

Haha I love it. I hope you don't mind, but I couldn't resist:

You know, Moneybags mentioned that he did bantamweight boxing in Spyro 2, and there's yeti boxing in Spyro 3.

So...fight of the century?
