This was the last EVER Spyro Game.
I am not against Skylanders but Skylanders is an awesome series with Spyro in it.

Thank you, shadow.
SkylandersGamer, no. Just no.
In this universe there is only one purple dragon at a time. Period. xP
#11450 shadowstarcat 04:28:40 09/08/2014
Guys cynder is NOT purple. She APPEARS to be purple cause she would look weird actually black. Also In Avalar, the hermit calls her

"You are the black dragon, Cynder, The terror of the skies, the dark masters puppet" (chap 3, avalar)

Also, from A new beginning.
"The prophecy foretold of a purple dragon, a dragon born only once every ten generations" (ignitus)

V well maybe they were gonna do something with Cynder being a purple dragon but didn't do it, and how can their be only one purple dragon theirs had to be more
#11448 cowpowa23 23:41:15 08/08/2014

#11447 SkylandersGamer 19:07:58 07/08/2014
V their can be more then on purple dragon
#11446 Greeble 12:44:28 07/08/2014
How is it Cynder went from black to purple?

I thought according to the games, Spyro was a rare purple dragon.

They must not be rare after all.
