He meant since Cynder was against him, he had nothing else to fight for so he may as well just be pushed like a doormat. Basically he's implying the only reason he fought was for Cynder.
Which is stupid, because there's Sparx, Hunter, Ignitus, and the whole WORLD to fight for. :x

i didn't get that part o.o what does he mean? v umm yeah i kinda think so too smilie
#10522 LevanJess 00:47:34 12/05/2012
v This. One of the dumbest lines in the game.
#10521 spyro_cynder88 23:16:30 11/05/2012
Well, I guess Spyro kinda showed that he liked Cynder because when Malefor turned Cynder evil again Spyro said you left me nothing to fight for. He could still fight for Hunter, Sparx, ect...
