Shes not evil, she is just lost and doesn't know what to do.
#10496 Hunter 4eva 02:03:01 05/05/2012

smilie turned good at the end of ANB. She just seems bad because of her dark elements and only helps smilie escape in TEN because smilie took her and used her as bait for smilie to free smilie
#10491 Hunter 4eva 12:11:21 03/05/2012
I don't think that he turns evil in the end... I think cynder just turns good. Cause Spyro saved their world! Why would he do that if he was evil?
#10490 spyroatwarfang 06:18:44 03/05/2012
but then in the end they love each other 2 dark couples! deadly dragons!

#10487 LevanJess 10:44:25 02/05/2012
Not really, that's more fan speculation. It's not full canon until you hear Spyro say the cliche line too.
